Dirt Rally 1 and Simucube 2

Hello everyone,

Last night I bought Dirt Rally 2.0 and unfortunately I don’t like its FFB at all. I tried all the recommended settings of this thread: Dirt Rally 2.0 and Simucube 2 and adjusted them, but I can’t get it to feel right.

So I would like to give the original Dirt Rally another try. I noticed that the profile template in True Drive for this title has exactly the same settings as the one for Dirt Rally 2.0.

Have you guys got decent True Drive and ingame FFB settings for this old but gold game?

Many thanks in advance!

I think the problem is with the game, all FFB sliders should go down from 100% to around 15-30%. We have DD wheels not G27 or T300RS.

I’ve been racing some Dirt Rally recently, using the default Dirt rally profile in True Drive. In game, I’ve set the road feedback to 75% and the crash feedback to 2% (to prevent getting hurt when hitting a tree full speed…).

In the beginning the steering felt very numb and late in repsonse, but that’s because by default there’s a 20% dead zone in wheel and pedals in Dirt Rally. Go to the advanced gamepad settings to set these deadzones to 0%.
It feels fine for me like that.

Thanks Raimond, I’ll give those settings a try as soon as I get the chance!

Mate, don’t give up yet on DR2. It is quite satisfying and i am sure you can find/teak settings to your liking. Just keep in mind that the car and its setup as well as the road surface plays a big role in the overall feeling and you will have to always fine tune your settings. You may check the latest settings I have just posted in the DR2 thread, they might work for you…
I don’t remember DR1 and i haven’t even bothered to try it with the SC2, i just remember from the old days with a G29 and t300 that it was meh (for me at least) with whatever i had tried.

Final version. The game uses DirectInput for ffb effects.
More damping, friction and inertia added for more ‘weight’ and enabled ULL-mode for a more rubbery feel to the wheel. Slew rate enabled to prevent hard jacking forces of the suspension being transmitted too harsh through the wheel.

Added the correct effects XML. Backup your old, remove .txt extension. Install in \SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\DiRT Rally\forcefeedback
