    I´ve mapped the seat position to the d-pad and right stick on the DS4.
    Get on the track with your controler turnd off.
    Disconnect your wheel, a message will appear saying your controler is disconnected (duh).
    Turn your DS4 on and press X (now you´re using your controler)
    Adjust seat position
    Turn your controler OFF
    Reconnect your wheel, let it calibrate , chose your rotation angle, press X.
    Drive....... ups, not happy yet, repeat....

    You can set your seat and then change the buttons back. When I´m not wrong the seatposition is saved.

    Its underneath where you set the G-force effect and head movement if i recall correctly.

    If only we could turn off blur/DoF for replays, it looks awful at times, like toy cars on a miniature track

    I always use helmet cam; FOV 60, no blur, look to apex 35 and a subtle speed effect so I have a higher FOV at high speed.

    It's under Options>Camera> movement
    You can set helmet Depth of view to NO

    Cockpit with 68 FOV. Looks sort of about the same as how I've set Assento Corsa at 48 and GT6 on Narrow.

    I use the helmet view mainly with these settings: with cockpit wheel/driver off (gameplay>guides&display settings)

    High Speed shake on
    World movement 75
    g-force 85
    Helmet on
    Depth of field yes
    look to apex 70
    leaning 60
    cam leaning 65


    also set minimum speed sensitivity to 95 max 140

    this seems to work well for my tv and also used to a helmet cam from shift2

    ...but I just thought I would try the normal cockpit view without the wheel or driver it did seem faster and clearer without the blur and helmet so now not sure but either of these and probably will use cockpit for the road cars for a clear view and helmet cam for the open cars and some track cars. Trial and error really from no blur at all to massive blur. Maybe people haven't tried or found all the settings reading some of the comments on other threads.

    Never use the chase cams or bonnet cams always inside the cockpit with my t300rs or ds4.

    PC is so good I play exclusively in either cockpit or helmet view. Usually in racing games I use the bumper view but PC for me is only raced properly when inside or through the drivers helmet view.

    I'm hoping to get my wheel set up on Friday and the thought of that has me bouncing off the walls with giddy excitement:D

    Just got mine-it will transform the game for you-I love my t300rs and challenge seat setup I have now. Haven't used the ds4 since apart from photo mode I have just been lapping my fav cars and tracks just getting used to the settings..

    Cockpit/helmet view is the way to go for this game :tup:.:D

    No, i mean on replays from TV camera errr cameras.
    That just turns it off in gameplay.

    While we're at it the photo mode too, what a mess, takes 45mins to move a slider from one side t'other

    Definitely the cockpit, however I also enjoy chase cam because the engine sounds are awesome from that view.

    In your vid, why are you changing FFB?
    What i mean is what are you trying to achieve because im having trouble with no feedback when cornering?

    Do you have a solution?
    Im on DS4 btw.

    I usually exclusively use helmet cam, no helmet, no blur, but I'm also starting to like rear passenger cam for the open wheelers. Formula B was pretty good like that for me. FOV may need tweaking a bit though.

    Not sure but if hood is the one with the rearview mirror then hood is the one I'm using.
