All things related to RFactor 2 and SimuCUBE.


#2

R Factor 2 included?


#3

Edited. Title to RFactor 2. .l


#4

Ok can we start with how we can introduce our simucube to the game? :slight_smile:


#5

I use this controller file with my Simucube normally at about .45 to .55 in game multis URD C7r :slight_smile:

Thanx a lot. So are we going to copy paste it somewhere?
How does it work?


#7

You want the file found at
:\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\UserData\player\Controller.json

You do not have to replace the whole file. The important section to change is:

“Steering effects strength”:10000,
“Steering effects strength#”:"-10000 to +10000, applies to all steering effects (torque, resistance, static spring, jolt, etc.)",

By default it is 10000 and you need it to be -10000 for the wheel to work properly.

So it should look like this:

“Steering effects strength”:-10000,
“Steering effects strength#”:"-10000 to +10000, applies to all steering effects (torque, resistance, static spring, jolt, etc.)",


#8

Yep just replace the ffb bit from “Force Feedback”:{ in Controller.json
i used all of it I found it on a OSW thread on S397 forum felt allot better feel running curbs catching slides using all the FFB part. just make a copy of Controller.json first so u can go back if u want :slight_smile:
i just copied to desktop first :grinning:


#9

Unfortunately, it is not enough to change that, because there are many other settings that affect and not least the FFB. There are many profiles on RF2 and I’ve tried it a lot, starting from the Accuforce that seemed closer to our steering wheel, but in the end I preferred that of the T500.


#10

will try the T500 one again. think i have already set main things in the file like setting “Steering torque capability”:20, for 20nm so will try it tonight :slight_smile:
Just liked the feel with all the FFB settings listed above thought that part of file only dealt with FFB and feel
:grinning:


#11

Naturally, the profiles are used as a base, but then change the torque to 20nm, and the Steering effects strength at -10000. What I meant was that evidence should be made. I did not see the other profiles after the update but kept what I had before and leaving the T500


#12

I went from T500 to OSW too you could try Jed’s file i’m going to try it again not tried it since i got wheel and used current one :slight_smile:
He supplied my OSW kit top guy very helpful :slight_smile: MX170 on here :slight_smile:
SinCos Encoder Upgrade will be my next upgrade :slight_smile:

#13

I’ll definitely try it in the weekend


#14

simon but do you encoder buy it there? sebra has a great price


#15

Got to save for a bit broke the bank getting OSW kit new wheel an HE Pro pedal set :slight_smile:


#16

Ill keep this here. 165 including uk delivery (Xmas present)

#17

You can’t go wrong with Jed i would not buy of anyone else :slight_smile:
going to be fun Xmas RF2 new ui and GT3 pack P cars 2 running very good now happy days :slight_smile:
First UK supplier i’ve seen love the quality of my servo box too so well made :slight_smile:


#18

Hope they do a pre order Id imagine they will sell out very quickly .


#19

I am sure if you ring him he will gladly put one buy for you :sunglasses:


#20

Hey Simon,

Do you know the brand of these encoders?
