New wheel setup!

Post by Guest on Sun Apr 20, 2014 11:24 am

Hi guys, I have just got myself a LOGITECH DRIVING FORCE GT wheel. To try and improve my much needed lap times lol
But not sure what wheel setup is best for the F1 game. so any suggestions welcome thanks.

Good Choice in the driving force gt I myself have it and a lot of others on the site do aswell, to be honest it's all about preference I have everything on 0% except linearity which is on 27% my force feedback settings 10% enviromental effect 40% force feedback 50% wheel weight hope this helps

I think most of us who have wheels have the same one.

I use 20/20 for steering linearity/saturatipn, 0.50% deadzone and 7% brake saturation. Or something to that effect anyway. Wheel weight and feedback on 100%, environmental on 80% iirc.

EDIT

I use 0.5% deadzone, not 2% I changed it recently.

to be onest mate practice makes you faster not a wheel (this year) but omg the mighty wheel settings hahah mate if its your first wheel leave it standard for because it is a new thing to you and you will need to get use to it then after a few races just start moving things round .. i played since 2011 with wheel and every year the force feedback gets worse mate so to be onest it sucks .. the wheel sucks on 2012 and 2013 thats why u may as well stay on pad, its just as fast this year

.. anyway sensitivity settings mine is: saturation on 30 .. everything else on zero ...
force feedback settings: enviro effects 20 feedback 70 and wheel weight 40 ....

this is for a sensitive wheel and to be honest it sucks ... i no i should't but nearly every single race i have to change my wheel setting because it is that inconsistent ... wheel sucks and is a big let down for the last 2 year running im still playing with my settings now .. and its got that weird i have even turned force feedback of for now because it feels like im trying to move a house with it on hahaha

what does this linearity do ?? ... 90% of the f1 community use 25 to 30 linearity, i cant because if i do i have to turn my wheel loads before the car in the game actually turns and that to me sucks and is the most unrealistic thing i have ever seen at, you turn your wheel and car should turn not you turn your wheel then 1 second later the car moves lol ... would you care to explain properly because i feel useless at racing and im always complaining about my wheel lol ... all the fast guys have 25 linearity so it must improve something is it better out of the corners for example ?? ... could you explain what it does .. i think in my personal opinion when i have use it .... the higher the setting the more dead-zone it puts on the initial turn of the wheel BUT HOWEVER the further you turn the more responsive it gets is this correct

Linearity is the relationship between how much you turn the wheel, and what happens on screen. At 100% with all other settings at 0, then it's 1:1 (IE if you turn the wheel 90 degrees then the game should do the same.)

Saturation is how quickly the game responds to the movement on your wheel.

Try setting your linearity and saturation both at 30-35, try it out, and drop/raise it as necessary until you get a situation that feels nicest for you in terms of using it.

The aim is to balance a responsive wheel (saturation) with only a reasonable amount of rotation required (linearity). DFGTs have 900 degrees of rotation and Codies F1 games don't really like that. Other wheels are apparently easier to get setup.

Deadzone doesn't really effect much, it's mainly for when the wheel is in the center position, even with full FFB it feels really light. The more you've got gets rid of the very tiny movements. It's not such a big thing in 2013, but it 2012 using extreme camber/toe settings it made driving on say the back straight in USA a nightmare because the car would be all over and difficult to correct properly.

Amongst the other drivers I too have the DFGT Nico! my current setting are as follows: 1% steering deadzone, 5% saturation, 27% linearity, 5% breaking saturation, 20% environment, strength 100% and weight 100%. 

In layman terms: steering saturation is the sensitivity and the linearity is the responsiveness.

Hope this helps Nico, your current team mate Esteban

Thats all good feedback guys!! Thanks. And yea it's my first wheel, I think I will need lots of practise this week on Sepang ready for Thursday. Also I'm hoping to use manual gears now I have a wheel before to long. As my to good mates Dave and justanumber say manual is better .

Yea very true! I was using auto with the pad in Melbourne, and it kept going into first gear for second or third gear corners.

I would love to use manual but can't get on with the downchanges. I wish it would stop spontaneously changing up at about 6rpm though.

No doubt auto is faster off the line, I was the king getting off the line with auto and would normally overtake at least 2-3 cars but on manual I get smoked by every Tom, Dick and Harry... just be careful not to go into reverse in the races like I did around Singapore last season.

I would have though that traction control would have made the difference at the start, not manual gears?

That being said, I use manual gears and my starts suck.

The gears were the only assist I had yet to take off and you could tell the difference immediately...

Not to sure about TC as I can't remember last time I had it on...I couldn't remember what I had for my tea last night.
