Default G25 FFB settings

Anyone have a good setup for GTR2?

Look to the Force Feedback Tweaking guide by Julien Regnard to start with. This will get your wheel set up the way you want. From there it's all just small tweaks in the FFB menu to get it right.

Sorry to say that you will have to work out your own feel. Everyone is different in the way they like their car to act. What I like, you may hate. No quick one size fit's all when it comes to this. Time and patient's is the key.

I would also suggest downloading a more extensive FFB menu if you haven't already. There are many different ones to choose from. Each with their good and bad points. I am currently using the one from Damustus. It's excellent and he keeps making it better.

One big thing is the wheel you are using. You failed to mention that? Good luck.

Well,,,as we all know, FFB settings are very personal...having said that I'll give you mine...in the Logitech profiler I set the following (both in device and global settings)
FFB = 100%
Spring = 45%
damper = 0%

centering spring box is checked to enable but set at 0%

let the game decide is disabled

Then I utilized the information in Juls " FFB Guide" located in the downloads section "misc files" I think and mentioned above to tweak the settings in the .plr file - remembering to back up my .plr file to a safe place before playing around in there....

Now my G25 feels really good...I can feel the tires chatter in a turn and the rear end step out etc...I'm not totally happy with the slop in the center say from 11:00 to 1:00..as this is where the wheel goes a bit light...but I'm still working on that

There is a ton of info here about these settings..do a search and you'll eventually find it. Read,read,read and it will come to you

The wheel CAN be made to feel much better than default or stock...
I'm not at my gaming PC...I'll try to paste a bit of my .plr settings later today for you to have a look at...you can compare it against your current .plr and deduce what the changes I've made do to the feel of the wheel...

thank you jack for the quick reply
i just found julien regnard tweak guide,i will give it a try
and yes i would like to compare your prl file from what i am using now.
question
do you run the profiler while you play gtr2?


i appreciate your help
thank you

I have 2 different setups...first one is the one I use online...second is for my offline use...they have a bit different feel...I can't decide which I like better..one is a bit more "heavy" then the other. Hope you find this helpful!!
Remember to back up your original .plr,,,

I appreciate any input from others as to how I might make these settings better.

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas!

I don't seem to be able to properly configure the G25 with GT Legends. I can't set the clutch nor the h-pad for proper use, GT Legends doesn't seem to recognise them at all

. Any ideas? I am using Windows 7.

Copy & Paste. But, please make sure you make a backup of your original PLR file.
