DiRT Rally 2.0 FFB Patch, Fanatec Podium DD And Simucube DD

Hi,

Codemasters just released the most anticipated patch! so is theFFB fixed or not? Well I’m not going to reply to this question cause it depends on your driving skill level and obviously on your hardware.

For now, I’m just going to say FFB of latest DR2.0 build is now acceptable to PRO or serious sim racer if it’s associated with a 6DOF motion simulator (or a 3DOF+TL simulator) and obviously if it’s correctly setup. Alone, so without a motion simulator, the implementation of the FFB suffers from a huge lack of information. The default FFB game settings/preset of DR2 is really bad for direct drive, do not use it ever!

 

Device type and id consideration:

Read my post to fully activate the support of the Simucube DD to Dirt Rally 2.0, here.

For Fanatec install the High-Torque dongle.

Then be sure to add official=”false” in the corresponding line of your direct drive device to get access to all FFB parameters of DR2.

The line in input/devices/device_type.xml file should looks like this:

For Fanatec DD, be sure to set the SEN to AUTO and keep in mind the Fanatec DD full rotation is 1080° not 900°.

Run the game and select your direct drive device in the input settings and start to calibrate the steering wheel. Calibrating is important to enable the softlock in game.

During the calibration, when the game asking you to turn back the wheel at 90° simply turn gently the wheel until your reach the 900° (attention for Fanatec DD it’s 1080°).

Then go to FFB settings and set params using the values below. These params are a good base for quickly get started with the DD and can be tweaked to suit your needs.

The “self aligning torque” in game settings should not be decreased to much to get the perfect “weight” feeling of the steering wheel, decrease the FF value from the Fanatec wheel or in the Simucube settings instead if needed.

 

The 6DOF FREX motion platform with MotionMax 6DOF software complete nicely your experience and immersion. This is a “must have” with latest DiRT Rally 2.0 to get a complete driving feeling, a good balance between forces and movements to avoid exaggerations that “disconnect” you from the road and for a more natural driving.

 

 

The MotionMax DiRT Rally 2 profile is a very good base and should be used to get started, then I suggest to reduce the TL effect a bit and increase the smoother effect.

 

If you’ve more than one device and app to connect in UDP to your Codemasters game (or any other game using UDP network protocol) I suggest to use the Sim Racing Proxy Server (SRPS), it’s 100% free.
For example, sharing UDP communication from the game with the motion simulator and a device display or a virtual dash using SLIMax Mgr Pro and MotionMax apps is easy. Read the SRPS web page for more info, here.

z

DiRT Rally 2.0 build v1 How To Improve FFB With Your OSW Direct Drive

 

NOTICE: The first time I give the trick to the sim racing community on how to use the Simucube direct drive was with DiRT 4 June 09, 2017 and now with DIRT Rally 2.0.

Do not be fooled by the guys around who don’t know what they are talking about and who don’t give you the correct information. Read the original and reliable information on EKSIMRacing, see the link below.

 

 

Hi,

Read carefully my tutorial to be able to use your OSW Simucube (native firmware or MMOS version) with DiRT Rally 2.0 build v1

REMINDER: Choose the corresponding TAB MMOS or Simucube and apply the recommendation scrupulously or the improvement below will not working.

Click to read how to use the Simucube with DiRT 4 and DiRT Rally 2.0

 

Okay, now everything is correctly installed and waiting for the FFB patch from Codemasters here is how to improve greatly and very easily the feeling of the road surface which is seriously lacking in the current version.

First you have to load the settings for DIRT Rally 1.0 on the Simucube FW or the MMOS and change the MAX FORCE to 100% FFB

then apply the settings below

ATTENTION: Tyre Slip and Engine are grayed BUT PERFECTLY USABLE with the sliders

 

Now go on track and turn the wheel to test the force and go back to the game settings to adjust the “Self Aligning Torque” parameter, if your MMOS or Simucube FW is correctly setup at 100% MAX Force you should get a good FFB with a value between 18 and 25. Collision value should be around 20.

This is simple you ask DR2 to send the max FFB values to your DD so you pass the full control to your MMOS / Simucube FW filter settings (which must be good obviously). Only the “Self Aligning Torque” of the game parameters is retained to control (decrease) the value to obtain the proper balance of FFB force.

That’s It!

Cheers,
z
