I use to have to set FF down to 65 with my DFGT wheel. Today I got set to 100 and I not feeling the bumps or hitting other cars.  :(

Even restarted computer and wheel has plenty of tension before starting Wreckfest. Tried the Roadcutter and Warwagon and both cars not not feeling things.

And with the wimpy FF, steering wheel turning to easy, so I'm oversteering.  :(

Anybody else have wimpy FF with there wheel?

Purple, check your logitech wheel profile see if anything has changed?

TBH never really got much collision feed back with my TX wheel,, something that developers need to work on.

I was testing my G27 wheel set up and used Logitech Profiler to set all Force Feedback Device Settings all the way to 150% and checked Allow Game to Adjust Settings. My Degrees of Rotation is 335.

The FF  in Game Settings was 90% was very over powerful, I lowered the Logitech Profiler back too a little over 100%. The FF is feeling better now but may test more with Game FF at 100.

@Purple,

That happened with my old DFGT that's why suggested checking the profile. Had to dig into my archive for this YT, will get you back on track :)

I'm back using 65 for Force Feedback setting. :)

But if I unplug my DFGT wheel and plug it back in, Win10 say new device found and update the old Logitech drivers to the wrong DGFT drivers.  GRRRR

Win10 use go for a few months before for some reason updating the Logitech drivers, now it doing all the time!!! I tried this but it did not work:

How to Disable Automatic Driver Downloads on Windows 10

    Right click the Start button and select Control Panel.
    2. Make your way to System and Security.
    Click System.
    Click Advanced system settings from the left sidebar.
    Select the Hardware tab.
    Press the Device Installation Settings button.
    Choose No, and then press the Save Changes button.



I'm thinking uninstalling Logitech not wiping the new drivers from hard drive. They still there some where. :(

It's a known bug for sure, I used the fix was okay for me. Maybe a bit of Google & YT for a cure

Purple you need to get Revo Uninstaller Pro :P it absolutely wipes all traces of any program you uninstall.

Thank for the suggestion Daystar. I looked into Revo Uninstaller Pro and saw a post at Cnet about it does not uninstall 64 bit programs. The installer for Logitech is 64bit. So I went with https://geekuninstaller.com/download.

But right now, I did something, old drivers staying installed now. But got Geek Uninstaller running to record if Win10 try install the new drivers.

Nahhh newer free version does support 64 bit apps/games etc

Revo Uninstaller 2.0 with full 64-bit support released
by Martin Brinkmann on August 04, 2016 in Software - Last Update: August 05, 2016 - 17 comments

Revo Uninstaller 2.0 Free is the latest version of the popular software uninstallation program for Windows that performs clean-up operations afterwards.
The new version of Revo Uninstaller free,, first update in more than 3 years, does away one of the biggest complaints that free users of the software had for a long time: limited 64-bit support.

Revo Uninstaller 2.0 offers full 64-bit support which means that any installed program, regardless of whether it is 32-bit or 64-bit, is now listed by the program when you run it.
The user interface lists installed programs on start, and for each program size, version, company, install date and whether it is a 64-bit or 32-bit application.

So I just noticed that I had 2 versions of Keyshot (art app) and I deleted the older version. gained a bunch more HD Hard drive space I must say... about 600 megabytes well not a lot but some. This app is really good, includes tools to help your system out... hopefully windows 7. but probably not! lols



Come on Purp. giver her a try!
