Im currently playing elite leagues and i am ranked 50 in the division.
I dont play multiplayer beacuse of the known smash fest.
I use a fully simulated cockpit driving setup.
Cobra V2 racing rig.
50 inch 4k tv.
Thrustmaster tx wheel.
When i tune my car and compete in rivals i generally have a top 1-3% leaderboard score in the world. I think this pretty good considering i use a wheel, and we are at a huge disadvantage…
Unfortunatley in the online lobbys i am always 2-3 seconds off my best lap time in rivals using the same car. Seems strange dont you think??
I have noticed that on certain tracks, on certain bends,
eg: turn 5/7 on bathurst,
Turn 6/8 laguna seca
Turn 4/5 and last chicane on spa. To name a few off the top of my head.
It feels like ice on these bends (and many other tracks) using a steering wheel…
Does anybody else using a wheel feel this?
Common scenario is,
Turn in, car loses grip and starts to oversteer, car tyres turn red and you have 360.
Seems very similar to the infamous Road America turn 3 netcode error.
Dont get me wrong.
Sometimes i can go two laps out of three things are ok.
(Still 2 secs off personal best)
All of a sudden it seems the steering goes completley sour.
This is ontop of controller turning off every other race.(use the turtle beach X07)
When i turn back on mid-race the game freezes for 2-3 seconds making me
b) lose time
I have now resorted to turning the controller on and off after every race on the league menus inbetween menus.
3-6 times every night since launch my steering goes ffbx100 and is completly undrivable.
The wheel loses all ffb but but seems 100% on turns when pushing hard,making it unplayable.
It also pulls hard to the left when braking.
This means fully unplugging the wheel and turning it back on.
Costing 10-15 secs per race.
How many other wheel uses experience these problems?
My wheel is fully updated to the latest firmware.
In my honest opinion this is the worst forza to date for wheel users.
I sure hope a fix is in the cards as this game has great potential.
The constant headset freeze and steering malfunction is really getting tiring now.
I hope TURN 10 are aware and making a fix… FAST.
Otherwise for wheel users this game is going to go similar to project cars…
To the sin bin fast.
