I have a tx wheel that needs repairing ( needs recalibrating almost every time I use it and some times loses feedback force) this is my second wheel and the last time it took over a month to come back, I was using ffb settings similar to settings suggested by GrimeyDog, that I liked, but with global force feed back level at 65 and most cars force feed back between 60 to 66, I really liked this as there was a lightish wheel but with some road texture, the ability to feel cambers and bumps in the road and good kerb feedback. I have bought a Logitech G290 to stand in while it is being repaired which I will resale after getting the TX back, I cannot get good ffb through the G290 without have the Global and per car settings really high, per wheel movement 150, force feedback 100, per car overal feedback 180!! But it is still along way from the TX feel, and without the subtle road feel. I reset the wheel settings when I started using this wheel and it has the latest firmware, anybody have any ideas? I have read that with the G29 on PS4 that some are suggesting the overal force feed back should be 40, that is a long way off what I am using and I am not a fan of heavy force feedback.

I use these universal settings: http://pcars.oscarolim.pt/wheel-settings

They work perfectly! You can dial in your wheel (G290) and get the perfect global settings. Then, dial in your car and get the settings for that as well. Make sure to take a look at each of the "filters" for the cars. Each filter will give you a different FFB setting (i.e. more feel from back, or more feel from bumps, etc.)

These settings made my G290 really shine. The global settings are spot on.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info, unfortunately before I read your post I uninstalled and reinstalled Project Cars from my Xbox, but any way I am now using these settings and they certainly improve the wheel, I am surprised there aren't more users with this wheel and more helpful info, there is plenty for the ps4 but the settings appear way different than on the Xbox.....

I am now using these settings, I like the feel but have a couple of problems, firstly I get the wheel shaking from side to side when stopped and on straights and secondly the wheel goes light when turning left or right? It appears to be clipping while turning, how do I get rid of the clipping without losing the weight?

A bit late but these are what cause the shake:
Low Speed Spring Coefficient
Low Speed Spring Saturation
Take them back to standard.

I used everything here: http://pcars.oscarolim.pt/wheel-settings/browse/xbox-6/108 with changes to:
Scoop Knee 0.35
Scoop Reduction 0.25 Recommended by Steeljockey,

Deadzone Removal Range .... standard
Deadzone Removal Falloff .... standard

Tyreforce ........standard


Speed sensitivity = 35

Could it be the G290? It's using the same outdated tech from G27, well it IS G27, just repackaged.

I am finally getting the wheel how I like it (took me 4 months for the tx458!!) But it seems to fade or lose its feedback power after a few minutes? Is any body else finding this? Is this the wheel or the game?

Not sure how Logitech does it, but Thrustmaster will cut down on the strength of force feedback once the motor is too hot, till the temps settle down a bit, then resume full strength again. This only happens if you run full 100% force feedback for a while, mine is on 65 and no problems there.

Thanks I have reduced it to 65, but feel I need more weight, feed back feels good until turning it then appears to be clipping, maybe it is me being used to the TX300 which apparantly is more powerful, there must be a way to get it set up but maybe its a very fine balance.

Is the tyre force 68 or Max (200)?

100 is the best for me. and 100 the FFB.
Usually I set the "master scale" and the " SoP scale" together (both always the same value) in the pit at the "edit tuning setup" menu if I feel too strong or too weak the ffb.
I never change the global settings!

Sorry my bad english, I hope You understand :)

The original settings had the tyre force at 200, which I know in discussions with Nicho I recommended that was way to high. It looks like D3L8OY has change some of his settings since then, and I know both these two have been driving and tuning together using some of my recommendations, so you may need to see what the settings are Nicho has come up with since then. I'll send out a message for him to update exactly what he is running on this wheel. As far as I know though, all individual car FFB settings are running at default including SoP all at zero. Only global wheel settings are adjusted.

Del's settings work really well they give a little shake in the wheel on idle but no biggie, then I used Jockey's scoop settings combined with Del's and also worked well. I have now reset the wheel and use 35 speed sensitivity only change I made, until the tyre temps and steering ratio save are fixed I will probably keep it this way.

Dels deleted his settings I think.

I am now using these settings and default in per car settings, it feels good but I seem to lose wheel strength after a period of time but the large bumps still feel fairly strong, as if its cut the force feed back level, the wheel casing does not feel particulary hot just warm to touch. The wheel just feels spongy after a few laps. Am i the only one having this problem?

Since the latest patch i have gone back to default FFB settings, only thing non default is speed sensitivity at 35, calibrated at 900. Since the tyre fix/patch 8 the feel has changed for me anyway. At my current settings the car gets better the more laps i do.
