F1 2018 Thoughts and settings

Whats up guys? Just installed F1 2018 and it is better for sure, however quiet a bit of vibration from the wheel like motor noise which if there is anything I can do let me know please. Share your settings if you do not mind of course. Currently running 90 ffb in simucube and 70 in game. Have not tested anything else. Also when loading the game up on triple montior its flashes like 5 times randomly on the screens before loading up the game. Thats probably a different issue.

From what I could feel, it was quite OK with slight road vibration, but then again I don’t run that high FFB levels myself, and neither do the F1 cars have high FFB in real life as they have power steering.

Good thing that we managed to get SimuCUBE detected properly in F1 2018.

my game doesnt detect the wheel, inputs dont get recognized too

now i got it to detect it. dont know what the issues was

Would you mind sharing your settings I would be interest in testing it out. Everyone is saying to drop road texture down for the straight line vibration.

I did not have the time to spend to try to adjust any settings from default.

I’ve the same issue. I found only Keyboard, nothing else.
How you resolve this?

dont really know, just restarted the game 2-3 times and then i could map left and right

I think the game has a USB input limit. I had to unplug some of my extraneous gear to get my SimuCube to stick.

Tested this game yesterday and i think it was a lot better than i think it gonna be.
For wheel detection just rotate wheel all way to needed direction and roll it back.
Worked for me.

Yep must turn wheel all the way to left then back to centre for axis to be picked up .same with button allocation they wont show up till pushed and released .

sorry to bring this one back from the dead but does anyone have decent settings for a small midge? Just got a Augury F1s rim and surprisingly f12018 detects everything :smiley:

Hi guys,

Have you suffered with a huge vibration when the wheel is centered and there is not force applied to it?
It only happens when I am playing f1 2018. If I push the wheel forward or turn it a bit to any direction the vibration stops but if it is centered and there is no force (torque) applied to the wheel it just vibrates like hell.
It only happens if the car is moving, if i stop the car the vibration also stops.
I tried many different settings in the game and Simucube tool and nothing solved the problem.


I think this title uses DirectInput damping effect. It might cause the wheel to move on its own with DD wheels. Reduce the DirectInput Damping effect slider and report back.

Hi Mika,

Thanks for your reply.

Reducing the damping helps but does not resolve the problem. I still have random vibration in the wheel.

I recorded a video that shows the problem.

This is my simucube settings:

An update for the vibration issue. I set the “Wheel Damper” effect to 0 in game settings and it seems to solve the problem.


Carlos, your Onedrive links require a login.

Links fixed. Authentication should not be required. I tried to access the links in incognito mode and I am able to see them.

As I mentioned in the message above the issue is already solved.


Yeah, I just wanted to know how much you reduced the DirectInput damper slider, and if setting it all the way to 0 fixed the issue as well. Turning the effect off from game might not be available in all games, and we should be converging towards some common default setting for DirectInput friction and damping. For friction, I’m planning 25%.

Hi Carlos

I am looking for my own settings for F1 on PS4. Can you help me?

(my yesterday video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFQzF8UCLCM)

Works different on PC vs PS4, I had two different configs from the game when I play with my old TSPC Racer wheel but my real problem is I am really newbie with Simucube and don’t understand relations between forces in-game and forces on simucube. (*)

Mika, would be great if you can check the video and let me know if all the parameters on Simucube are functional when playing on PS4 with Gimx

(*) You said you set the “wheel damper” effect to 0 in-game settings but i don’t really know which of the in-game settings is that. Also, your Simucube settings show you choose 900 degrees: are you playing F1 with this value or you change this in-game setting? Because I tried yours but I want to play using 360 degrees, and select that value on PS4, but don’t do anything: Simucube degree values wins!
