So after buying the game I thought I should buy a steering wheel to improve my experience with the game. So as I’m in a budget and don’t want to spend above 65 Euros for a steering wheel I was wondering if any of you are playing the game with the following wheels. I am aware that these wheels are not of the best quality but as long as they work with the game it will be better that nothing.
Can you share some settings I can try on the TX? I was experimenting last night with the wheel and was surprised at how good it felt after playing alot of FM7. I have it pretty close but would like to try some other options.
Its already hard to drive on wheel and than i have to press enter and window pops up and press enter again that window closes and than bam into a tree… realy nice indeed. and this can hapen like 3 times in a single race. its stupid.
I had given up on the wheel after launch having tried their recommended settings because they felt pretty terrible. Tried again a couple days ago and spent some time tweaking the settings and I’ve got it to the point that I can’t believe how awesome it is on the TX. I spent almost 4 hours playing last night banging out seasonal events. I haven’t played that much in months. Even the muscle car event in the snow was not just fun but fairly easy with the wheel. I never thought I’d be saying this and I just assumed the wheel with this game was a lost cause. I’d say to TX and TMX owners do a little experimenting with the FFB settings.
Normal steering mode. Not sim.
All dead zones 0 & 100.
Steering linearity- 50
Vibration- 15 but turned off at basic menu. Crucial for off-road.
FFB Scale- 55
Center Spring- 40
Wheel Damper- 40
FFB understeer- 50
FFB Min Force- 65
Wheel Rotation- 540… Also tried 720, I prefer 540.
I like strong FFB so maybe roll off a little FFB scale if it’s too strong. Also I’ve turned off vibration lately at the first settings menu. Definitely helps for off-road but I prefer it all around now.
Yea the TMX will be a huge upgrade. Be sure to check out FM7 with it too. There’s some amazing FFB for the Thrustmaster wheels currently in that game. Hopefully they don’t break it while trying to fix whatever is going on with the other wheels that aren’t cooperating.
