I used to use immersive until i saw this http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?51422-First-thoughts!/page8 and although i dont understand what it means. I dont like the sound of auto ranging and stuff so put it to raw lol.

There's your best reply Rocket from Jod, same wheel user as you!  I can't use my G29 on raw, it literally rips my arms off and tears around my office like the tasmanian devil!  The clipping noise is worse than having teeth pulled!

Not that it's much use, here are my G29 settings:

Some cars feel very light, others heavy, but most if not all are driveable with no assists on

Deadzone - 0.0
Steering Sensitivity - 50

Flavour - Informative
Gain - 92
Volume - 37
Tone - 35
FX - 46
Menu Spring Strength - 0.30
PS4 Pro
Playseat with G29
Pcars Dash on iPad and iPhone
Race with no assists and cockpit view

I assume you mean this bit:-
"'Immersive' and 'Informative' both scale automatically to prevent clipping, while 'Raw' does not. Some notes below from development:

Informative
Focus on optimizing the amount of useful-for-racing information the driver gets through the wheel.

best use of dynamic range to continually inform driver
no saturation
leverage non-linear filtering
tone sweeps Fy to Mz dominant


Immersive
Focus on immersion and the experience.

feel speed
tighter around center
canned effect ok to default on
tone sweeps SoP vs Rack


Raw
Straight rack FFB without any filtering

canned effects default off
no auto scale
no non-linear filtering"

I've read this several times over and while interesting it's also going right over my head. I'm thinking I might need to switch from Informative to Immersive judging by that this guy is saying for Tone.

I'm lost and at sea with the issues I've been having with the FFB.

Yes i forgot to say second post lol. Could your trouble be that your settings are to high/extreme? and this means that your losing some of the more subtle ffb feelings? When i have the settings high it really fucks with feel of the game imo. (dont need a comment about how strong you are) Also i like the raw flavor because it feels the same all the time. Where the other two flavors take a few laps to kick in then it feels like it progressively gets stronger for a few laps and settles. This made it hard to notice the changes as it kinds of filters in rather than a straight change. You wont ever get the same feel you had in p cars 1 so stop wasting time looking for it. Just stick with one setting and crack on like everyone else has and stop complaining lol.

What are your raw settings?
Did you ever mess with Speed Sensitivity? I've been avoiding this setting due to some info I've read.

George, I have the same wheel as you, and I found these settings work great with GT3 and GT1.

I must admit, not tried them with open wheel yet, so may need tweaking for that.

RAW
92
60
60
60
0.30

Deadzone - 0.0
Steering sensitivity - 50

Although everyone has different set ups and TV screens etc, I found these options heightened my experience too:

Cockpit view FOV - 80 (default is 70)
Remove wheel and driver
Mapped seat positions - I found default to be sat too high, lowering my seat position a few clicks gave a much better fov and realism, especially as I removed the driver and wheel.
Limited hud - I use PCars dash on both iPhone and iPad for all information except race position (on screen)
PS4 Pro
Playseat with G29
Pcars Dash on iPad and iPhone
Race with no assists and cockpit view

You're welcome.  You might find EDIT VOLUME AND TONE are slightly high to grab a feel of the car underneath you, so may be worth playing with those 2 settings between 40 and 60
