Hi,

Is the effect correctly played when using fedit? When using ffb_3.exe?
Could you please also provide a GIMX log file?

yes the effect is correctly played with fedit
ffb i think only the first of some effects were played (and quiet violently)

next time i am there i will supply a gimx log file

Cheers

Did you move the wheel during the test?

Hi, ok i ran the test again and the left & right spring work perfectly, couldn't notice anything with the left and right damper. I also tried the damper simulation in the force feedback toolbox and couldn't notice anything there.

Strangely i got force feedback this time when generating you the logfile:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8fFN ... mt1MDBkcVU

i feel there may need to be a bit of joystick corrections as it feels close but not quite there, when the wheel's range is set to 900 deg middle is 0 , full lock left is -15000 and full right is 15000 any suggestions?

Use a sensitivity of 0.0085 for the wheel axis.
It looks like the clutch pedals axis needs correction.
I think the following value should do the job: low_value = 32767, low_coef = -16384, high_value = 0, high_coef = 0

Hi, I am trying to setup a similar wheel (MIGE motor+simcube) but I do not achieve to assign the wheelm to my PS4. mfeighan, could you let me know how you did proceed? I mean how you did setup gimx-config.

Thank you, i already set the wheel axis to .8 and it feels about right.
The guy i set it up for is quite happy with it all and he donated you 20 Euro as a thank you.
He doesn't use a clutch so i don't think that bothers him, but its worth changing next time i drop by

Thanks again Matlo for all the help.

Razzta i basically copied the g27-g29 config and modified the axis & buttons, also removing what was not wanted/needed then it was a bit of trial and error.
