Hi, what is Menu Spring Strength option in the FFB settings and what does it do?

It is the strength of the centring force of the wheel when you are on menus and not in game driving. It has no effect out on track.

It's for some that don't center their wheel when going back to the menus, because if it's not centered then the wheel will be moving the selections in the menu.

For you to notice any effect you have to adjust it and restart the game.

Judging from the amount of questions I have seen about this last few weeks I would really recommend adding a help text to this in game. All the other settings have one so why not this one?

Because the Label is the description. It's self explanatory. "MENU Spring Strength".

Think of it as Self Centering Force... only for the UI Menu's.

Judging from the amount of questions about it, I don't think it is... ;)

I have a suggestion, maybe it is better to completely disallow changing options via steering the wheel right left, and maybe also with the gas/brake.
For my case at least, this has only created problems and never found it useful, I can't see how I could reliably change options with that. It only messes up with my settings with I have the wheel turned by accident.

Maybe it has to do with gamepads, you need their "steering" to change settings, so that system was programmed in an abstract way. But maybe we can get a hardcoded exception for wheels?

I found it self explanatory yes but obviously quite a few people don't so what would 1 line of help text hurt?
Just a suggestion though

I know this is a bit off-topic but I find differences in language like this fascinating. How would you describe the italian name for this option in English? I just wonder what is the concept for a menu in your language.
