I'm having a bit of a problem with the FFB when correcting and straightening up after a drift, it feels like I'm fighting against the FFB and there is lots of resistance.
In LFS the FFB would be returning the wheel to centre at this point helping to straighten out the car, but in AC it's still wanting to pull the opposite way and I'm steering against it to correct. If I wait for the FFB to stop countersteering before straightening up it's often too late and results in a tankslapper.
By me is the same when i try to drift something.
I dont have problems with that to say myself "you are noob on this, dont try it anymore"
On race tracks its another story..i can catch slides etc...just normal (just a lot harder) like lfs..
reduce the ffb gain
For me drifting in AC is the same as in LFS, maybe because I use weak ffb.
I don't really on ffb that much, for me the most important is tyre physics, that feeling when tires losing/gaining grip is the most important
If I lower gain too much though I can't feel the rear of the car step out as early plus I lose some feel around the centre so I keep it fairly high for lapping fast with but without clipping, e.g 65-70 with the E30 road car.
For drifting though I guess lower gain will help, but in LFS the FFB always works with me rather than against me.
With the ffb gain too low the wheel isn't fast enough to catch the slide. So many, me included, agree that the slide recovery is a little off in AC compared to real life and (to a degree) LFS. The initial slide feels brilliant and very "real" in AC though, I gotta give them that. :-)
Finally my PC upgrades are coming this Friday, which will probably kill the 3 times a turn FPS drop. Then finally I can do some rape action on RSR Leaderboard Currently, I can hardly see the track at all...
That's similar to me but I have to reduce profiler to 100% in some cars as it causes oscillations.
I tried the E30 drift with lowered gain at 40 and it was easier to recover from slides as there wasn't such a strong force to fight, but you do give up overall feel/weight. To me though it feels like the countersteering force lasts too long at the end of the slide, think I may post about it on there official forums.
I just have no idea how you people can drift with these wheels, at least with DFGT it's impossible to spin it that fast to recover from a big slide or to drift, i can powerslide a bit and catch some early snap, but that's it..
Yes this is a true, but on my wheel a Driving Force GT, even with a smooth weight transition there's lots of resistance to fight at the end of the drift unless it's totally perfect, this makes correcting any decent angled drift difficult. In real cars I find it easier to correct at the end of the drift as the wheel works with me.
Could it be that my wheel isn't fast enough and I'm getting slightly delayed forces at the wheel at the most critical time? from most videos I've seen they are using G25/27s or TS500s or Fanatecs all have lower latency as far as I know.
Wow! your T500 spins so fast! way way faster than my DFGT. Looks like you can drift at some good angles and let go of the wheel to self correct fast, my wheel just doesn't react like that, recovery still looks rather difficult though.
