hi all, i was having a go at this track tonight and i am having problems with my force feedback. For some strange reason when on the track the wheel is fighting to turn right and yet when on the grass it behaves perfectly. So far I've tested several different cars and it seems to be only this track where i have this issue and i was wondering if anyone was experiencing the same and if so, if they knew of a fix?
cheers,
Brad.

Hi Brad, I am running a G25 and have never experienced negative FFB like you could experience in Rf1. I have my basic Main Controls Advanced set at
FFB Gain 80%
Min Force at 12%
The rest of the settings at 0 or to personal preference
In game FFB for each car at 30 to 70%
Hope this helps.

@Phil
I say another few fun runs. Even the Season is a "fun run" compared to Tuesday, lets keep everybody included.

@Brad
Like Roo, I have an old G25 and have had no problems with this track. I believe that there are a couple of versions of this track, make sure you have the one linked at the top of the Thread or maybe download again just to make sure. Hope you get it fixed mate.

I think you also need to remove any 'strange' settings in the Logitech Profiler that you may have set for Rf1.

Post by: bradc on June 22, 2017, 06:00:50 PM
thanks for the ideas, I'm currently downloading the track again, so hopefully that will fix it. I will also look at the settings if this does not fix the problem. The weird thing is that it doesn't matter which car I try they all have the same fault and it's only on this 1 circuit, so I have to assume there is a bug or something strange in there. I do wonder if it's because I'm using an OSW wheel perhaps this could be the problem as I had to create a custom profile in the game.....
many thanks,
bradc.

nice wheel,  all i can suggest is that this track had weird strong ffb,  so I presume you might need to turn your ffb down to like 10 with that wheel at this track

I think I've worked out what was going on. It appears I was not up to speed with the update to Assetto Corsa where they moved the forcefeedback from the options pages in the controller settings to a short cut when you are inside in the car.

I believe Flattop wants people to pick a car based on "which one they like driving the most rather than which one will give them the best chance of winning" that is why the tracks for the latter part of the season have not been revealed. So no car swap.

Apologies for jumping in Bruce and correct me if I have not got it correct.

You can also alter the FFB while driving by using the +/- keys. The strength is displayed at the top of your screen.

Time to get practicing for the upcoming opening round of "Sophistication and Style".
Is anyone having trouble with mid-Ohio?
Brad, I think you had your issues sorted, and if Phil doesn't hear by tonight, there will be no change.

Looking forward to getting my mighty tin-top pumping!

Perhaps it would be a good idea to republish the exact version of the track that everyone must have to avoid the grid issues we had last time.

Got a weird problem with this track. When I start to leave pits I get sharp spikes in the steering, then as soon as the pit speed limiter cuts out it want to pull hard to the right. This happens online or off-line, with both cars but everything is ok on the no chicane track.
This happens with all cars, not just the 2 we are using in this series.
Have re-downloaded the track from the latest link and still the same.
Noticed in the reviews someone else had the same problem.
Any ideas?

Well , what a great start to the new season it was worth the wait. The cars and track combo proved to be just perfect and with Phil's handicapping it was anyones races to win. I was having a great three way battle in race 1 with Robin and Flattop with me in the lead until I got too excited watching Robin and Bruce beside me and forgot to change gears !! Race 2 reverse grid, I was sure Flattop had a win in the bag , there was noway they would have caught you Bruce without  a mistake on your part, maybe next week. I felt everybody had some good clean close racing.  ;D ;D

I have just watched both replays, race 1 was intense, no wonder I felt stuffed. I take my hat off to the winners no mean feat on their part.

That was a fun start to the season  :)  The handicap system worked well, it never felt like my pace was hindered by the restrictor. When Wally passed me it felt more like my poor corner exit was the reason, not the handicap. Although the first few laps of the reverse grid was a bit strange, I could not keep up with Bruce or Rooshooter!

Good fun. Sorry to Seanus for the second race. Poor line on the last turn around lap 3 and got a wheel on the curb and it spun me around into him. Some good racing with Bruce after that and I only got by once he made a mistake.

I found the restrictor interesting; I could still put in pretty good lap times if I had free track as I noticed I took most corners quicker than some people, but once I was in traffic I had no chance to pass unless somebody made a mistake. I'd get a good exit onto one of the straights and pull alongside someone only for them to pull away half way down the straight. I guess part of that is the track so will be interesting to see how it goes on other tracks.

I worked out to get a good exit out of Villenueve as the following straight into Tosa wasn't long enough for them to respond.
Then I had the best part of 3/4 of a lap to gap them before the pit straight. ;)

nice race report, it was fun, i was shattered at the end of race one, but recovered enough to get some early high concentration laps in and with some strength to hold it... great night.

It was head down, don't look back first laps for me, at one point I was on my good time and couldn't believe I was holding the gap, man it was fun.
