How do I know if my FFB is clipping?

Put the gain at 100%, scroll through the telemetry until the FFB graph appears, then adjust the volume until the graph line hits the top but doesn’t get cut off. You then have maximum FFB without losing any detail. Clipping is shown when the line on that graph gets cut off and goes flat.

What is clipping in FFB?

To know if your steering wheel is clipping, you can press the ‘F’ key whilst driving. This will bring up the FFB window. The bar marked with an F is the force being given to the wheel. You do not want this bar to go red at any point on the lap. If it does, this means that your wheel is maxing out and clipping.

What is sim racing clipping?

Clipping is lack of detail because of your motor maxing out. A simple example would be: Your wheel is using all its power in a curve. The curve then goes even tighter but it feels exactly the same because your motor is already maxed out.

What is gain FFB?

Gain – Gain is the games maximum force output through the wheel. A higher gain setting means more force given. Gain is a quick and easy way to change FFB strength, however, if set too high, it can cause ‘Clipping’. As the car travels faster, the wheel becomes lighter.

How important is force feedback?

Force feedback adds an extra layer for both signals and interactions. Not only can the game send you extra signals with the help of motorised motion in your steering wheel, you also get extra opportunities to react to those signals very precisely by turning your wheel or pushing the pedals.

Is Force Feedback realistic?

The most basic type of physical realism is how your controller vibrates in response to the things happening in game. Force feedback is a high end version of the same concept which can accurately simulate real world things like understeer, oversteer, weight of the car, slippery roads, jumps and much more.

What is FFB gamma?

Gamma is an adjustment curve, sort of like a LUT, but completely general. In this case it modifies FFB output strength for force values in accordance with the curve.
