    SMS should indeed make a guide with a proper explanation of every controller setting. It is impossible to enjoy this game to the fullest without knowing which setting to change and how much.

    I found some explanations here on this forum but not nearly enough to start "playing" with the settings. I don't even know what FFB clipping means. Not even to mention that "scoop" thing.
    Exactly my thoughts, and gathered by many threads and discussions most are feeling the same way.

    The explanations in game menus are very poor, and there doesn't seem to be any enlightenment on the net as to what they mean, and what changing them will affect.

    Taking out the small graphical issues and cars getting stuck in pits etc, this is a great game, pushing boundaries in graphics and physics, dynamic weather and time of day. It makes other racing games take notice.

    I must agree , that a pdf covering every force feedback setting and details would be extremely helpful . I havnt given up on ffb settings , spent countless hrs and hrs playing with it with some success .........

    What worries me now is when this new patch comes everything will change again

    I watched that video quite a while ago but im pretty sure he has it set to PS4 because that's the system he was playing it on in the video, I mean you could try putting it into PS4 mode and see what happens.

    Roger, thanks for the guide. I have read it numerous times and am still having trouble wrapping my head around many of the technical terms. English is my primary language and I have a bachelors degree in aeronautical science, but much of what is in the guide is way over my head, as I am sure it is for many. By the way, I have been sim racing since before force feedback was even a thing.

    I think what many of us are crying out for is a simple explanation as to what exactly each setting does in relation to how it will feel in the wheel. For example, when you explain in the relative clamp section, "This is the force to wheel value (so in the 0.0 to 1.0 range) where the non absolute running magnitude is clamped". I have no earthly idea what the non absolute running magnitude is. Much of the rest of the FFB explanations are like this, where terms are referred to that I have never heard in my life, so most of the explanations are useless to me.

    I'd like to say that I appreciate the technical know-how that it takes to make all this stuff work. And I also know that FFB is a very personalized thing, and therefore it should be customizable to a certain degree. I just think there comes a point where the tools that we are given are useless because I don't know what any of it means. During the alphas and betas, I was in the 'more options the better' camp, but I think there is a point where it can be too much, and too complicated for even seasoned vets, myself included.

    Going forward, it would be nice to have some canned settings to start with, along with a simple explanation for each setting as to what turning it up or down will feel like in the wheel, not what it technically does.

    Again, I appreciate what WMD has created, because I think it has a great base and future ahead. A little more user friendliness would go a long way.

    Hi mattcwell, yes it is very hard to understand and get your head around isn't it, the explanations in my post in Jacks thread are not my own by the way but a copy and paste from a previous Guide written by our FFB guru AJ.

    As you say FFB can be a subjective thing and trying to put all the different settings in an easy to read document is going to be hard as altering one value can then have a knock on effect on another and so on.

    Have you tried Jacks FFB Tweakers as this is the best way to get started and you might even like them and never have to understand what they do.

    There is a better explanation with examples and a diagram in the Attachment below but still might be difficult for some to understand.
    The examples contained in this document might help as well.
