I think they improved graphic engine or something, I am always racing Nurburgring at 18:00 when the sun goes down doing 8 laps with 16 opponents and this is the first time I haven't got any warning in T1 or while being crashed by AI.
Feels smoother to me. No changes to settings. Using GTX 470 and 16 cars is MAX for fluent gameplay on 1920x1200 and pretty much everything maxed up.
Hey man. Gave those settings a try but the car still just seems to whip around to easy, and then most of the time i end up over correcting. I drift in LFS pretty fine. I think I just need more time in the game.
I've put some damping in it too. (13 in profiler, or else none would work in game and 8 in game) = G27. The wheel is going bizzerk without any when tank slapper and so I've put a few percents of filter too. Happens to help Prosting (driving more realistically) quite a little bit out there.
kerb effects.. 0 and still the wheel rattles like an old dog on rumble strips. I hope they fix this in one of the patches, it's quite annoying at times to others in living space. And it would be really a drag to open the wheel and modify it.
And yes 50-80% ffb is just the pleasurable range in AC. Something like a 18-25 in LFS. What matters is running a 100 in profiler.
The FFB is pretty much buggy there. Yesterday was trying out the new car (you know,that Pagani Huabalaya thing) in Valelunga,after one mistake I ended up stopping with front on track and rear in grass and the FFB went bizerk with rattling all the time until I moved the car,even if the car was in standstill at that point (managed to do it again on different track part semi-intentionally). CBA to register to AC forums and write a bug report,if someone has noticed similar thing,write there!
(For the record - I use DFGT with the fake effects turned off)
It seems to be a fairly common problem with games having trouble with very low speed/stationary physics. Look at how much iRacing cars rattled and wobbled when sitting in the pits, and it's the same in AC. As long as everything feels fine once you're moving it's a non issue.
