    I agree, the deadzone is completely gone from my G27. Also, the biggest thing that I noticed is you can actually throttle steer better now with more feedback. I'm gonna try it out on some of my old saved best lap replays for a better comparison and maybe set-up the old SNAIL qualifier at Streets of Willow.

    At the end of the day I think it's just individual preference.

    Apparently a hot fix was released around 6am, changing the FFB "due to it not behaving as intended."

    Shizzz back to the drawing board. I was devastated at first yesterday, then elated once I found a workaround... Now... Who knows?!

    It wasn't clear if they removed the torque/sensitivity split setting, or if they just boosted the torque strength from what I read. But some comments seemed to indicate that the increased "feel" / sensitivity was gone, with weight back. Good for some, but also bad for all... :dunce:

    I love the Toyota FT-1 VGT...didn't even bother trying to tune it... I like Panorama... the result is a lap time that's not too shabby.....

    Understood.... I used the default settings for the wheel... I noticed the different "feel" but got used to it after running some laps.

    To the D
    I have a Driving force pro and so far my sweet spot is
    -2 controller sensitivity
    7 torque
    6 sensitivity
    I overall like the feel. More engaging, and overall more sensation as to what is going on at the wheels. I had mine set heavy before update and is was strange at first, but with some time, I can't believe what I was missing.

    I'm liking 0 on controller sensitivity, 9 on torque and 7 on sensitivity.. Feels almost like it did before.

    Link to GT6 site describing what they did (or didn't do). It's all too complicated for me. All I know it feels different. Heavier when I go fast, lighter when I go slow. It now actually feels similar to the Formula 1 game (I have 2011 version). Also, I don't know if I am imagining things, but it is almost if I can feel the ABS jitter, causing a minute amount of understeer when I turn in.

    Yea, I feel the ABS jitter thru the wheel also. I think I will be making the switch no ABS now.

    Maybe that's why I feel like I can blip the throttle a little more now prior to apex to settle the car..I'm gonna try this later. I know the brake has a firmer feel in the FT-1 VGT. I just like the fact that I can brake and throttle steer a little better now. I always hear the upper division guys talk about it but could never get the feel for it. Now it just begs for more.

    Just an observation as I'm reviewing replays right now. If you are in a division that is running with penalties on, you need to quit counting on the ghosting feature to save your bacon and drive within your abilities. The time is coming when penalties will be turned off for all divisions and the ghosting feature will go away. Save yourself the painful adjustment period and start learning to drive without contact now.

    Ran some laps with @Dragonwhisky last night. First time behind the wheel in nearly 6 months. Had a good time.

    Def was rusty as I really haven't ran online in GT6 for nearly 10 months. None the less was fun and will join again.

    I am still trying to find a setting I like, haven't tried it since the quick patch this morning yet though. I've seen a couple people note their controller sensitivity, but if you are using a wheel then it doesn't matter what it is set at, as it only works if you are steering with the DS3.

    Luckily I had your door before the entry or I would have backed off. Too bad noseknows followed me and took second. It was and epic race. I think I lost a pound In Sweat. The nice thing about boost is that it is almost non existent up front. Keeping the pack together but the front runners competing for position using strategy and craft over fast laps.

    Another observation while reviewing replays. If you're going to fill out an IR, read the instructions that go with it. The time stamp for the incident you enter should come from the total race time which is in the upper right corner of your screen. You do not enter the individual lap time. You do not enter the time from the replay controls. You do not enter your best lap time (don't laugh, I've seen it happen). You enter the total time from the upper right corner of your screen. The stewards have enough work without trying to figure out where you got your time stamp from.

    It does effect the feeling of the wheel. On 7 it feels lighter than on -2

    I disagree, the description reads for Controller Steering Sensitivity "Adjust the movement speed and sensitivity of the front wheels in response to steering input from the directional buttons or left/right stick."

    All I know is I tried 0, -2, and 7 for that setting with my G27 plugged in and there was no difference at all.

    Never underestimate the placebo effect. Sometimes just the ability to change something will make the user think that something has actually changed. The fact that there is or isn't an actual change will not matter to someone under the influence of the placebo effect.

    The controller setting now affects the wheel? :confused:

    I think maybe sensitivity was working and torque was always at one for some cars idk I need to test. PD is not clear about anything did it go back or did they fix it? And also controller sensitivity? :confused: It's time to bust out the Gt white coats

    Update the btr is drivable now. Feels like before I could not test understeer in this car. Also FFs feel different it seems like there is undeersteer feedback and my Integra drop lap times by a half sec in autumn ring. I feel like there is a better sensation of no longer turning and just plowing on. The bumps do feel out of sync though.
