Is there anyway to make this game not feel awful on a wheel?

    I got the game at launch and found it just dreadful. barely touched it.

    Recently just updated my TV and I heard some people going on about how much better FFB was a lil while back, decided to give it a go with some settings I found on the Fanatec Forum (im on a clubsport wheelbase v2) and it is still nothing short of dreadful.

    Is that just how things are gonna be? Or is there anything I can do to make the game feel vaguely acceptable.

    im on PC for what its worth.

    I'm assuming these are the settings you're using?

    I have the same wheel as you do but I'm on Xbox. Once I got the recommended settings plugged in for Xbox it made the game at least playable.

    Settings I’ve found to work well for me on the Fanatec CSL post December last year ffb update.

    I can also post Simucube settings if you want different settings to play with.




    SEN 900
    FF 075
    SHO off
    ABS off
    DR1 off
    FOR 060
    SPR 030
    DPR off
    FEI 000

    Game

    Vibration 40
    FFB Scale 75
    Aligning Torque 200
    Mechanical Trail 120
    Pneumatic Trail 80
    Road Feel 75
    Wheel Damper 5
    Center Spring 0
    Steering Sensitivity 100
    Steering Linearity 45

    Again these are MY settings, ffb is a very subjective and personal taste.

    Thank you, sorry for the slow reply I wasnt messing with FM for a few days, I just got uhh... Forza EmuWheel working and it is a night and day difference I am legitimately dumbstruck how different and good it feels compared to before.

    None the less thank you for trying to help out.

    The "Fixed" FFB is still a joke, how anyone could consider it anywhere near acceptable blows my mind, there is near 0 wheel feel near center, your centring spring just goes and take a vacation until you are mid-corner and then it comes back out of nowhere.

    I'd say check out ForzaEmuwheel but I seen you are on XBO, im running it on PC. with emuwheel it is a night and day difference.

    I’ve not tried emuwheel is there a good link where you found it?

    Seems last time I tried to find it was closed to beta testing only.

    Here you are.

    ideally you want to join the discord as well (Its under support,) one of the staff basicly custom makes some kinda profile for you, after you do the initial setup. But even with the initial setup it was worlds better tbh.

    Hmm downloaded, installed, followed instructions, went through configurator, muted Hush...

    This is what I get when I launch....

    [ERROR] vJoy driver not enabled: Failed Getting vJoy attributes.
    [ERROR] Could not initialize vJoy

    Will not let me start or stop.

    after muting you need to launch Forza_EmuWheel.exe and start it, it sounds like thats whats happening? If you are try the discord they are quite helpful

    Same it works really really good with a G920 at least. Much better than Pcars 2 for example
