Hello to all.
As the post states I am receiving my sc2 pro in around 2 weeks and I have been researching like crazy to shorten my learning curve, but it has just produced many more questions. I don’t mind learning and tinkering while at the same time I’m understanding that these are older games that require some tuning to get just right, but I also am not into the daunting and continuously overwhelming feeling when I attempt to learn this info nor do I have any interest in spending two weeks and my FFB feels the same or worse than I started lol
So I am reaching out to others who have the time (my time is limited with longer hours of work) to get started on these following things:
Main beginning tips for setup (ex. I know to depress the emergency stop when calibrating the wheel to be able to easily turn it on some wheels, to turn off the detect hands off because it can make the wheel go soft) as well as I am trying to attempt to find from others who have hundreds (maybe thousands) of hours in the wheel base already, how have you found is the absolutely best way to approach this all being new? Any steps you take or a process that’s been developed?
I would like to think I’ll just jump right in but I see some games are just not even drivable barely without adjusting right away. Then there is also information that contradicts such as which one should be at 100% gain: in game or on TD. Mika and some have stated it’s best to turn the TD up as high as you would ever want to feel in the wheel while many post in RF2 state turn the wheel to 100% and adjust the cars individual %. Some then also say use motec and see the spikes you’re getting and turn it up around 3nm higher to prevent clipping which could result in being higher than your previously desired TD gain.
What settings have the most impact or which ones to focus on first and which ones to fine tune? Which settings for osscilations or large vibrations, sudden jerks from road textures or curb? the list goes on…
So hopefully not too much blabbing but again this is overwhelming and I’m the analytic type that has to know all I can and don’t know where to start outside of looking over games of interest and reading which that itself only helps sometimes because games get updates and change, or ex project cars 2 listed tons of FFB files in them but only two were given with in game settings as well as TD settings.
I have conversed with others previously on here about paddock and from most on here it is said that it’s not really worth the time because they are bad or even dangerous, but even that doesn’t get you proper in game settings so one last main concern on where to start is the in game settings vs TD settings? Which affect more and which should be the initial focus?
