    I'm new to a wheel, but currently I like 7 sensitivity, and 2 on the other 2 settings (force feedback and such).

    Sensitivity is just for controllers - if you are using wheel it doesn't make a difference if you use 1 or 7 :)

    I find that it in fact does make a difference, I adjust it from 7 to about 5 for karts since they are so twitchy.

    I have tried numerous FFB and sensitivity settings and found that 4/10 works best for me on all cars I have used so far.

    I used to run the strongest FFB feedback settings on GT5 and GT6, but GT Sport on the whole feels completely different for me and have settled on the 4/10 setting which gives me the required feel I need

    You can not go wrong with a Logitech wheel they have always been very reliable for me and have never gone wrong thankfully. I have used the G25, G27 and now the G29 for GT Sport after a 3.5 year break.

    I am still a little confused with the settings on my G29, even after these couple of months I used it.

    I enjoy the wheel a little "heavier" while turning left or right corners, so I started using this setup:
    -Force feedback Max Torque - 5
    -Force feedback sensitivity - 4-5

    But I noticed that my lap times are not as good as I'd like, because of the wrong feedback from the track road surface , so I raised the Force feedback sensitivity at 6-7.

    But, IMO, GT Sport have a problem with the track feedback , at least that's how I feel with my G29.**
    I can't feel some of them corectly, IMO .
    In Tokio, for example, I feel really strong in my wheel those crack lines in the track [ hope you know what I mean, on the long straight line, I feel and hear very powerful those track separators, like they put the track piece by piece or something, like Lego :) ].
    On the other hand , on most of the tracks I can't feel very accurate those red&white striped parts at the corners [ sorry, I don't know the english term for it ] and other stuffs like that.

    So I must go alow with the torque !

    So, these days, I use :
    - Force feedback Max Torque - 2
    - Force feedback sensitivity - 8-9

    It's a little unusual for my taste, the wheel is turning a little too easy at corners, but that's the way I can feel more information from FF sensitivity, I mean the oversteering situations or something

    **PS : maybe the G29 wheel is not so good, maybe Thrustmaster wheels have a different response, I don't know , I'd like to test some T 300 RS or T 500 someday.

    The FF in GTS isn't great to be fair (compared to Assetto Corsa for instance it is lifeless, inaccurate and uninformative). Your settings are very similar to mine and for exactly the same reasons too.

    I doubt that the T 300 is much, if any better although I have read that the TGT, which is in totally another price bracket, works with what the games has way better.

    If I just want to feel the pleasure of driving as realistic a car around an as realistic a track as possible on console then it's A.C all day and all night. There is no comparison, even if I am "only" using a G29. If I want to race and socialise with mates less fussy about that kind of thing, then it's GTS and the G29 and T300 are more than adequate for that.

    Btw, I noticed one small problem with the "Force feedback Max Torque" setting , small but annoying !

    I must set that at 2 at the beginning of every race ! Every time when I am in the pre-race menu, I go to settings and that Force feedback Max Torque is back at 4 !!!
    I set it at 2 , but at the next race it's 4 again !!!

    Any idea how to stop this automatic [ ? ] change of that setting ?

    It's a current bug within the game. Hopefully, they'll fix it soon.

    Oh, I'll make a report or something about it, too ! There is any in-game report button about these problems ? i never knew that

    If you can afford it or you have the patience to save get a fanatec. I have a G29 and it's good Wheel and I have the fanatec csl and it's just plain better.

    Honestly, this idea came into my mind a few days ago and I will consider this option, but I must try first the new wheel, whatever model it is [ I had a T300RS in my mind, but I will take a look at Fanatec model, too ].
    The most important question in my mind is "Did a better wheel can lead you to better lap times in GT Sport ?". It's an answer I'm looking for these days, before I'll spend some cash on a new wheel !

    I don't think so to be honest...But I'll probably upgrade to a T300RS in the next months only for the steering feel and all.

    Yeah, the feeling could be better, but honestly it's some big cash involved here and I save these days for a VR set I wanna buy next, so if I find someone who say he moved to a wheel better than G29 and found those 2-3 seconds missing at the lap times, I will try to make an effort, otherwise no !

    Stay away from thrustmaster, I've been through 2 of them. I tested my G29 v fanatec by doing hotlaps and honestly I was only 3 thenths faster with my fanatec but.

    Waking up a dead thread in wake of new update.
    Anyone noticed different behavior of wheel after most recent patch?

    The settings I have now (7/7/2) feel different somehow, I can't get a good lap at all..

    If anything, I found it to be a bit better than previously. For the Daily B race, I set a personal best quali time (Lago Maggiore Gr 3) with the RC F @ 1:57.0 on the first go at it

    I had to increase ffb to 3 to get the feel back on track. Think they did something in that department.

    Quick question for G27 and G29 users.

    When you pause the game in the midst of driving, and then turn your wheel from end to end, do you feel any FFB? Does your wheel auto re-centre?

    AFAIK Pausing looses ffb. Wheel does not auto re-centre. This is on G29

    Thanks Gogga for the quick response!

    Let me expand on the reasons for my earlier question. I use a G27 and cronusmax plus.

    About 95% of the time when i connect the wheel, I get this mode (let’s call it Mode A) where:
    - pausing the game - there is still full FFB
    - little variation between the different FFB Torque/sensitivity settings. Torque feels quite heavy all the time

    The remaining 5% of the time (let’s call this Mode B) where:
    - pausing the game - no FFB at all
    - nice variation between the different FFB settings. FFB torque at 1 feels very light (as it should) and 4 feels just right.
    - FFB feels better

    The problem is I have no control over when ModeA or ModeB is selected... any help from anyone will be appreciated! Thanks

    I have no experience with a G27 and the cronusmax plus. Maybe someone around here will be able to advise you on the settings that need to be applied. I'm actually considering a drivehub convertor for my Dfgt. It's collecting dust. I've had the Dfgt for years and it's never skipped a beat. How is the ffb on an unsupported wheel using a convertor?

    I believe the cronusmax and drivehub do the same thing - they supposedly let the PS4 see the g27/dfgt as a g29.

    The FFB experience on the g27 has been good so far - no complaints - at least until I came to realise there was a difference between the two modes above. Hence I’m trying to understand better what other g27/g29 owners experience.

    Given the (relatively) high cost of the drivehub and that a fair bit of tinkering is needed to use a cronusmax/drivehub, and even then the result is not consistent, not sure if it’s worth the cost/effort for you.
