Okay , i am at a loss with this game atm.
I registered on these forums when i was splaying Shift 1 , mainly because i was searching for an improvement in the FFB of my Driving Force Pro which i found to be not acting very realistic ( mind you i have no real simracing background other then enjoying a bunch of racegames ).Contributions concerning setting FFB for a wheel by Juls and Matt 2380 in the concerning threads helped a bunch and i fiddled with the controller files , i have not tried any mods seeing i like my games to just work.
So far i have found my personal preference is with the game not being able to control settings and damper and friction set to 0%.
Although it seems the game does make use of the options i kinda like the FFB to be a little more subtle and to get that "light" feel in the wheel when losing grip on the front tyres , this seems to get lost when letting the game control the settings and turning on damper and friction forces.
There is some improvement in the FFB when braking it seems , although a downshift seems to be the most noticable in the wheel instead of getting feedback on the grip levels of the wheel
I have some steering lag also , but i have a bit of an outdated system (XP)and it seems to improve with lowering graphic settings , so i would concur that that issue is partially due to system settings/drivers.
I tend to automatically anticipate my driving input so it is not such a problem
I also do get the "weave" on straights , but only holding the wheel lightly makes for it to
be a non issue.
To my amazement though i was reading on the main Shift 2 thread and mr "nismogtr123" shares his findings and seems have no issue with the weave , he seems to be able to let go of his wheel and still go straight :O !
Also the clips he posts (here : http://www.nogripracing.com/forum/sh...227627&page=48
show the wheel animation concurring with his setting which is someting i have not been able to do and i have been tweaking a lot.
Anyway , i will be following this board to check the developments , and for Logitech wheel users : the "allow game to adjust settings" option and damper and friction settings seem to stick with using ALT+ TAB so it is easy to find your preference.
