    FFB almost non-existent compared to PS4 with exact same settings. Ideas?

    Hi there, hope all is well and sorry if that question has been discussed already. I found related issues but not this one.

    I switched from PS4 Pro to PC and the FFB on the Playstation felt in the space of a car, the FFB on PC though is there but super light and has rather the resistance of a bicycle than a race car. Settings are exactly the same. Wheel is TM SF1000 on the T-GT2 (pedals for what it matters are the HE Ultimate+).

    I did already:
    - reinstall game
    - delete all non-default setting in the Windows registry app
    - delete the PC2 config files (all of them in different orders)
    - unplug pedals
    - all the above in different orders

    Thoughts and ideas are much appreciated. Thanks

    You have installed the Thrustmaster software? What do you have defined in the Thrustmaster software for:

    Overall
    Constant
    Periodic
    Spring
    Damper

    Also, try setting "Immersive" for the FFB Flavor in-game.

    Thanks so much for this, Mahjik!

    TM Software is installed (the one you can download from their site with the control panel).

    All values above are 100% - overall was 70/75% before. On the PS4 it still is about times 10 compared to PC. Same with immersive.

    I'm running PC2 via steam if that matters.

    Any further thoughts are super welcome!

    Quick follow up: In the TM control center the controller is referred to as "advanced racing controller" or something on those lines (T-GT 2 or sf1000 - sim is down atm) - is that the right one?

    Also I'm running this currently on an Alienware x51 r2, intel i7-4770, 3.4 GHz, 16GB ram, from potentially 2013. Not sure if that limits the ffb? But feel it shouldn't as I bought it off a sim racer for whom everything worked just fine and who unfortunately doesn't use PC2.

    Thanks so much!

    You might make sure there are no firmware updates available for the wheel.

    This thread was similar, but I'm not sure there is anything useful:

    The PS4 handles hardware differently, but you should be able to be very close.

    Thanks for the above, Mahjik

    The in game ffb I didn't get to work. But the Jack Spade's ones absolutely did it - especially the alt ones.

    Thanks again for helping to solve this!
