Recommended force feedback settings Logitech G29?

#1 Post by pete_agreatguy » 05 Dec 2016 21:42

What do these force feedback settings mean? Please explain in detail (i.e. what happens if you lower the setting and what happens if you increase the setting) :)

Taken from profile/controls.sii

Code: Select all

config_lines[39]: "constant c_ffenabled 1.000000"
 config_lines[40]: "constant c_ffgain 1.000000"
 config_lines[41]: "constant c_ffspring 0.750000"
 config_lines[42]: "constant c_fffriction 0.700000"
 config_lines[43]: "constant c_ffengine 0.850000"
 config_lines[44]: "constant c_ffsurface 0.300000"
 config_lines[45]: "constant c_ffdamper 0.300000"
 config_lines[46]: "constant c_ffcollis 0.100000"
 config_lines[47]: "constant c_ffg27 0.000000"
Otherwise I have no clue what the other's are :(

Thanks in advance

EDIT: Updated post to include my settings that I use (works well I find).

FFB settings in menu controls

Force Feedback Gain = the overall strength of all effects.
Force Feedback Stiffness = how much resistance to turn the wheel
Force Feedback Centering = how much force the wheel uses to return to center.
Force Feedback Engine = how much you feel engine vibrations (high revs, low rpm lug)
Force Feedback Terrain = how much you feel the road and other surfaces such as gravel, dirt etc..
Force Feedback Dampers = how much you feel the resistance of driving through such things as water, sand or gravel.
Force Feedback Collisions = how much you will feel the effects of collisions such as hitting a car, wall or sign.

Hope this helps.

tbar, you are a great help. thank you so much!

EDIT: Just so other knows these are what the settings relate to in the controls.sii file:

config_lines[39]: "constant c_ffenabled " = force feedback (FFB) (1 = enabled / 0 = disabled)

config_lines[40]: "constant c_ffgain " = FFB gain setting

config_lines[41]: "constant c_ffspring " = FFB centering setting

config_lines[42]: "constant c_fffriction " = FFB stiffness setting

config_lines[43]: "constant c_ffengine " = FFB engine setting

config_lines[44]: "constant c_ffsurface " = FFB terrain setting

config_lines[45]: "constant c_ffdamper " = FFB damper setting

config_lines[46]: "constant c_ffcollis " = FFB collisions setting

config_lines[47]: "constant c_ffg27 "[/code]

this is rather direct reaction to dampers function - if you drive over retarder, curb or railroad. also other uneven terrain.
Nobody can tell you anything about it. Those who know about it aren't allowed to talk. And those who talk know nothing.

You're quite welcome. Have you adjusted your steering sensitivity and non linearity settings? I run the sensitivity at about 75% and the non-linearity at 50%. Steering degrees are set at 575, any more and I feel like I'm wrestling with the wheel. :) Happy Holidays.
