The Continuing Story of FFB (episode 136) by Mario Petrinovic
Well, I corrected some things. The FOV and screen hight were wrong. FOV was 61, and should have been 57, while screen hight was 0.147000 (7.35%), while it should have been 0.141488 (7.0744%). It looks like FFB settings should be the default ones, so now I have 118/100/100/100. All...

FFB progress by Mario Petrinovic
Well, the discovery of calibration problem sped things up. Now I am having consistant results. I found out that Centering Spring should be as a result of multiplication of Overall and Spring/Dapmer (if those two are equal). So, for example, these settings are balanced: 125/80/80/100,...

rF2: The quest for new ways to be miserable continues! by Andrew MacPherson[_2_]
Graphics: it's like a modding team took rF1 to the edges of what it was capable of. Good, if you were expecting a much improved rF1, but DX9 is capable of much better. The programmers here... well, they've tried their best, but unfortunately sometimes your best isn't really good enough. I had the...

How to balance FFB by Mario Petrinovic
Eureka, I finaly found the Holy Grail of FFB, : ). The problem with FFB forces is slack. I found the way to balance that slack. It's done with the Overall slider. On my system the slider should be at 138%. This way everything works as intended. I tried this with...

FFB (December edition) by Mario Petrinovic
Well, I tested thoroughly Centering Spring at the position of 61%, and decided that 22% is better. It looks like Spring and Damper should be the same. Spring and Damper at 100% is too much, at 61% is too low, so, it'll be between 100 and 61.

FFB (new development) by Mario Petrinovic
Well, this is what I did. First I set Damper how I like it (to not feel friction, and to not feel wheel too thin). This is at 96% on my system. Then I tested Centering Spring with Spring being 0% (Damper at 96%). And it turned out that the best Centering Spring is also 96%. So, I...

FFB update by Mario Petrinovic
Where am I now? Well, it looks like I am on the right track, finaly. It looks like "the key" is in adjusting Centering Spring (unchecked). It isn't hard to do (on my, well trimmed system). You just put both, Damper and Spring at 0% (you leave in-game at 40.0/100), and test Centering...

To be proven correct and not enjoy it. by Mitch[_3_]
I foresaw what was coming to Europe and then America way back in 2005. I take no pleasure in being proven correct on ALL points (look at the archives). I begged Europeans with every tool at my disposal including personal attacks, to no avail. When I realized I was talking to people with the...

FFB (so far) by Mario Petrinovic
For whoever is following news about my testing. First "cockiptLookDeadZone". I tetsted it all through, and it turned out that the default setting (0.050000) is the right one. Others are not so good. So, graphicwise things are getting simpler. It looks like the only thing you got to do is to...

FFB by Mario Petrinovic
Ok, this is "the right" way to set FFB. Centering Spring should be at 100. Overall, Spring and Damper should be at the same number. My settings are 139/139/139/100, "Allow game..." unchecked, in-game 40.0/100. I am not very strong person, so I presume that normal male...

Secrets of FFB by Mario Petrinovic
For a long time I am searching for the correct way to setup FFB, and finaly I got it. To set things rightly, I first have set my FOV correctly, the hight of screen correctly, and latency (it turned out that this wasn't necessary) correctly. I determined the latency very low, at 0.000715 in...
