Quote from VladM :I've always felt like AC's physics handle like a wet noodle, and even with a wheel...

This is what puts me off the most. I do wonder if its something to do with settings that we use which makes it so off putting.

Cheers guys, appreciate your input! Thumbs up
TV instead of a Monitor?

What's the take on using a regular 1080p TV (or slightly higher, with HDMI input) as the primary device for racing? Is this 'input lag' on TVs, that I've read about, cause for concern when it comes to using the G27 for LFS, AC etc.?

My current laptop died on me and am trying to figure out my options on a very tight budget. Can I go the TV route (with a LFS-friendly PC setup) without much fuss?

Thaaanks!

Quote from JoRuss :Tried to restart game...

Just to clarify, when you say you tried to restart game, you mean you closed LFS and reopen it? And yet the issue still persists afterwards where you are slow?

But if you do the car swap as you mentioned it goes back to normal?

Hello! Just a few general questions...

1) Are you sure this only happens when Lapper is active? The random restarts does not happen when its inactive?
2) You've earlier mentioned that it restarted when Lapper gives a message? But now you feel its random?
3) What's the config time set to qualifying time (/qual=0 :qualifying minutes, 0 for no qualifying)?

I tried it for the first time few weeks ago and it's working fine for me (at least for now). I haven't used anything of the sort up to now and I find it brilliant.

Can anyone tell me what the dots at the bottom of the cars (some are highlighted and some are not) in the pits/car selection screen represent? I can't figure that out of the life of me.

Hey there, and welcome back to LFS.

I wouldn't worry too much about it if I were you. Unfortunately, when kick/bans are allowed on public servers people tend to misuse it quite often. I've seen people get kicked/banned without any reason, much less getting involved in an accident. However, kick/ban do need to be allowed in some instances where people can become a menace to those who are racing (especially if a moderator is not online at that given time...)

There are some moderated servers and those that are usually hosted in Europe, where you wouldn't have much ping related issues.

Don't loose sleep over it mate.

Hi, on the G27 the shift lights does not work on LFS. There was a software made to make it work on LFS, more info can be found on this thread.

Although I'm not sure if the G29 LEDs are supported by LFS or if the software on the above thread works with your wheel (but I think it would).

XRG and XRT are quite close (the wing being a one of the biggest changes). XRR, as you say is quite different due to wider fenders. Best would be to rename them and load them up on the CMX viewer to see how good (or bad) they look, and if required, to modify accordingly.

If you are pretty in to skinning, you might already realize that skins are stretched over certain areas in different percentages. JazzOn made a thread about stretching of skins, which might be useful when skinning (in case you were not aware of it already).

Oooh, interesting. Does windows detect the shifter's gear positions (and other buttons) as you've got it connected up via USB?



Edit: I've did a bit of digging, but I can't find any straightforward solutions. However, if you have modified it as an USB compliant device and Windows is correctly detecting/reporting the shifter's buttons and 'gear positions', I think it should be possible to map it to LFS one way or the other.

I don't have access to LFS at the moment and cannot test it, but if Windows recognizes the key press, it should be directly map-able (which you cannot at the moment) or assign it as a bind (linked to shift position).

i.e. something like this.

Did you have a look at the LFS Scripting Guide? Anything there that you can use? I've not used it in years as are completely oblivious to how it works... but maybe it can used to assign the shifter keys on way or the other.

Hope someone else can give a more direct and straightforward answer! Ya right


Some of the stuff I came across, in case you have time to kill...
ACCAkut's DIY shifter on LFS Forum
Shifter Adapters from Leo Bodnar (most straightforward solution before you did any modifications to the shifter)
XSimulator (You may have already done something of this sort...)
InsideSIMracing (You may have already done something of this sort...)

Edit2: Bah! Just saw your thread from 14 years ago. You know way more about these stuff than I do! Taped Shut

Quote from Racer Y :9 pounds? NINE POUNDS?!?!?!? I had pay 12 pounds a pop for mine.

You still would have to pay 12 Pounds!

In late December 2016 the devs introduced price bands for different countries. So based on where you live, it varies significantly. Prices can be checked on the vouchers page (drop down list of countries).

Hey there, there's some info about setting up a Logitech wheel on LFS Manual. That'll help you for the basic setting up...
Silverracer

Ah... few more questions.

1) Are you launching LFS via the Logitech Gaming Software*?
1) Can you press "shift + c" to "re-initialize controllers", like Rik97 asked? Does that make any difference?
2) Does it still work on other software? Can you please check? (Just wondering if an O/S update messed up the wheel config..).
3) Can you take a screenshot of your option > controller screen and post it here (the screenshot image can be included as an attachment to your forum post), to see if anything is amiss...

* LFS manual has a remark stating N.B For Logitech G29 & G920, you must use the latest Logitech Gaming Software or else it won't be recognized.

Hey there and welcome to LFS!

Since you mentioned that it works on your other software, I don't think anything major is amiss, maybe a setting is incorrectly set...

Are you using the Logitech profiler? Is it correctly detecting the G29? Does LFS also correctly detect the wheel (usually something like "Logitech G29 Racing Wheel USB Steering Wheel)?

You have to select wheel/joystick (and not keyboard/mouse).

If all that is fine, does the axes move in options > axes/ff tab, when you depress the pedals and steer? I'm referring to the right most part of this GIF, which is from LFS Manual.

The GIF is a step by step guide of configuring the axes to LFS.

Does any of that help, or aren't any of the inputs still not detected?

Quote from Eclipsed :Not sure what you mean with skin when posting pictures of plain red car

I'm guessing something along the lines where you see Volvo S40/Opel Vectra base skins based on the FXO and the Nissan S13 on the XRT...?

I'm not too sure if the required drivers are in the adapter or the wheel itself, to be honest. I assumed that it would be in the wheel.

The Windows 10 OS might be the issue, as per what I came across online is that Windows 10 does not support this particular wheel anymore. And people have been complaining that there is no way around it...

If your household has another PC or laptop (which is not using Windows 10), try on it first. Or maybe one of your friend's PC before doing anything else.

If it work on a non-Windows 10 machine, it confirms that its an OS related issue. There might be a way to "create" drivers (find already created ones) so that the wheel is supported in Windows 10, but sorry, I'm not aware of how to do that...

Hello and welcome! To clarify, have you used it before to connect the Xbox wheel to the PC or is this the first time? Does it work on the Xbox itself? Does it switch on? Some troubleshooting tips here...

Do you have a receiver like this?

As per this Reddit post it should be simple plug and play (for it to be recognized, at least), although it might be for a different O/S with older drivers...

Are you on Windows 10? As per one post on this thread, a user complains that the wheel is not compatible...

Hope someone would be able to help...

Okay, that's odd. Hope you find a reasonable explanation...

Hi, are you using the Logitech Profiler?

The LFS Manual has section about setting up the Logitech settings, maybe try that and see if it helps?

Hi, the setting is in
Options > Misc > Car skin download > 1024.

You get an information screen when you select 1024 (warning that there will be a charge on the LFS credit). The minimum allowed credit to add is GPB 3.

However, unless you play multiplayer quite a lot, 2000 skins will take quite a lot of time (in terms of days, weeks, months of racing).

Therefore it is possible that you enabled the feature via your settings quite some time ago...

Your Account page might show some info, although it might not be that descriptive if you've had a lot of account activity (purchases etc.)...

Edit: I do wonder; since your account balance is GBP 2 now, is it possible that you added 3 pounds a while back to use this feature and have since forgotten about it?
