Settings depend on the version of AMS2 you are running as there have been some significant changes made to ffb behind the scenes, and may be ongoing for a few weeks more. For example:
- AMS2 main release version: Default ffb (in-game) works quite well, imo.
- AMS2 Beta version: I use a custom ffb file, (tweaked).
- AMS2 Beta (nfm): Custom still works best, imo.
In any case, AMS2 ffb works better with a healthy dose of Friction / Damping (for my taste).
Reconstruction Filter: I generally start at 2 or 3.
Until Reiza settles on the final Default / Default+ standards, we may not have definitive answers on how Damping impacts the steering behavior. At least with a more recent custom file, we know how it works (as Power-steering).
