TOPIC: Logitech G29 force feedback settings

Logitech G29 force feedback settings 06 Mar 2020 02:15 #113924

I'm seeing some weird behavior with force feedback when using a Logitech G29. By default (with force feedback turned off in the game), the wheel is rather stiff but centers when released and generally works as expected (with no force feedback, of course). I did some searching on this forum for the stiffness, and learned about the control to enable force feedback in the game hidden away in advanced settings. After turning this on, I get force feedback, but the wheel no longer centers and is prone to getting out of sync with the game. That is, the wheel as show in the car will be centered and the G29 will be rotated 180 degrees. It also seems to be less responsive with force feedback on.

My forum searching didn't really turn up any clear answer other than to try switching the force feedback device to something else and then back again in the settings, but I only have one device and turning it off and back on again doesn't help. Would anyone who's gotten the G29 working correctly be willing to share their settings?

Pleaen note that the wheel does not return to the center automatically on a stopped car. This effect exists only when you're driving. That is how it works in real life.

Also if you have a minor difference between the in-game wheel and your G29 – it's normal situation. This is exactly because the in-game physics is built on 1080 degrees wheel as in a real car. However, this difference between 900 degrees G29 and in-game 1080 degrees wheel is very minor and doesn't affect the gameplay and steering comfort.

What I'm seeing is that the wheel never centers, including when the car is moving. I suppose it's theoretically possible that it's centering so slowly and gently that it's not noticeable in the short distances I've encountered so far. I have no idea how quickly a real car's wheel centers. To give an example, in the very first training scenario, where you start up and make a left turn, I get these results:

With force feedback off, I crank the wheel around until the car has made the turn, then release the wheel and and quickly spins back to center with the car proceeding straight down the correct lane. Although it takes some effort to turn the wheel, this is simple and I thought that's how cars actually behave.

With force feedback on, I turn the wheel (taking much less effort) until the car has made the turn, then release the wheel and it doesn't appear to move as the turn continues and I go off the road. If, instead of releasing the wheel, I turn it back the other way to try to straighten it out, I end up swerving back and forth across the road as I try to get the car moving straight.
Also if you have a minor difference between the in-game wheel and your G29 – it's normal situation. This is exactly because the in-game physics is built on 1080 degrees wheel as in a real car. However, this difference between 900 degrees G29 and in-game 1080 degrees wheel is very minor and doesn't affect the gameplay and steering comfort.

Ah, thanks for the explanation! Is there an obscure keyboard command or something to get them back in sync? I've found that when you don't know how to steer and are trying to learn, having the G29 inverted from the car wheel really does affect steering comfort...

Hello,

Try increasing the force feedback strenght. It should help with the auto centering.

Could you record a video where we can see how exactly the wheels are unsynced?

When you lose control of a car the steering wheel should go with the flow but instead mine center backs normally even if the car goes side ways which isn't really realistic at all,
haven't found a way to fix this
