    Cool The Crew - Controller & Wheel settings [user suggested]


    Be you a casual, arcade or more simulation type of racer, everyone likes their handling a certain way, so let's get a collection from you guys of the settings that work best for you, on your platform, with your device and see if we can help others who may be after an experience that is more akin to your own. Post yours with a brief sentence about what it allows and also any games it may resemble to help others identify easier what might suit them.

    Hardcore Mode


    PS4 - Mellors
    A good setup for those who like their handling with weight and the chance to pull off some nice powerslides.

    I'm a bit mental.

    Here's a good guide to configure FFB for PC. [link]
    I didn't mess with it yet but it explains thouroughly every aspect of FFB, how it works and how to configure it to your liking.

    I hope the FFB-stops-working-after-going-into-Uplay-ingame bug isn't still there! Minor issue with an easy workaround, but if it's still there, then bleh. Going to buy s**n in the near future.

    Here are some extra wheel tuning suggestions from the devs for PC users:

    Meant to post that yesterday. The setup he shares is actually pretty decent, makes it a lot more relaxed.

    so this part is not that clear : In ‘my Documents\The Crew’ folder, edit or create file ExtraConfig.xml.
    I've created an xml file in there named extra config as there was no such file, but I'm not sure if it works that way. I didn't notice anything different.

    The idea is that you copy the example text from that thread into the new file, test, and then tweak parameter values one at a time.

    Code:
    <ExtraConfig
    FFB_Factor="1.5f"
    FFB_LoadFactor="1.0f"
    FFB_LoadPower="1.5f"
    FFB_LatFactor="1.0f"
    FFB_SlipAngleFactor="2.0f"
    FFB_CamberFactor="0.1f"
    FFB_CamberOffset="2.5f"
    FFB_DamperFactor="0.2f"
    FFB_DamperMaxRoll="1.0f"
    FFB_DamperMaxRollVal="0.1f"
    FFB_DamperMaxSlipAngle="0.25f"
    FFB_WaitRate="1"
    FFB_SpringNoControl="0.25f"
    />


    Dev suggested tweaks for High Torque (i.e. expensive Fanatec / Thrustmaster) wheels to reduce FFB on bumpy surfaces:
    Code:
    <ExtraConfig
    FFB_Factor="1.5f"
    FFB_LoadFactor="1.0f"
    FFB_LoadPower="1.0f"
    FFB_CamberFactor="0.1f"
    FFB_CamberOffset="0.5f"
    FFB_SlipAngleFactor="2.0f"
    FFB_LatFactor="2.0f"
    FFB_DamperFactor="0.2f"
    FFB_DamperMaxRoll="1.0f"
    FFB_DamperMaxRollVal="0.1f"
    FFB_DamperMaxSlipAngle="0.25f"
    FFB_WaitRate="5"
    FFB_SpringNoControl="0.25f"
    />

    yeah I've tried the high torque text because mine was going crazy off road too but it didn't seem to do anything. Basically I have a file called ExtraConfig.xml in there that contains just this
    <ExtraConfig
    FFB_Factor="1.5f"
    FFB_LoadFactor="1.0f"
    FFB_LoadPower="1.0f"
    FFB_CamberFactor="0.1f"
    FFB_CamberOffset="0.5f"
    FFB_SlipAngleFactor="2.0f"
    FFB_LatFactor="2.0f"
    FFB_DamperFactor="0.2f"
    FFB_DamperMaxRoll="1.0f"
    FFB_DamperMaxRollVal="0.1f"
    FFB_DamperMaxSlipAngle="0.25f"
    FFB_WaitRate="5"
    FFB_SpringNoControl="0.25f"
    />
    not sure if it's the right way to do

    I'm using a Fanatec GT2 (which doesn't have as much torque as the higher-end models) and the default settings seem to be just fine for me I'm using 540 degrees of rotation iirc, 900 is too much for this game imo

    Yep, using 670 here. I've heard others using 540 as well. I prefer the extra rotation when I'm out of the cities on the twisty roads, although sometimes it can be a job to catch the wheel.

    900 was too much for me until the time I've unticked allow game to adjust settings on logitech profiler. It's much better that way.

    Is Mellors' config for gamepad use or is it good to go for wheels too?

    I think that the slides in control section apply only to pads and keyboard. Wheel is only configurable in wheel controls section. I might be wrong though since I didn't actually check if these slides change something.

    They do apply, the wheel settings section is merely a configuration of deadzones and extremes, like at what position is the wheel set to be neutral and at what position is the pedal at full throttle for example. The settings in the controls section are what actually change the physics.

    Ok so I decided to have a fiddle with the wheel settings yesterday. I was already pretty happy with what I had but thought I would attempt to apply some grey matter to the subject to make it a little more sim-ish. Take note of your existing settings in case you want to revert to them.

    Key settings:
    Speed sensitive steering - turn this off (left side). It's an aid designed for keyboard/gamepad players
    Steering sensitivity - turn this to 100% (all the way right).
    Steering linearity - where you place this setting depends on how you set your wheel rotation. Center it at 50% if you're following this guide.
    Force feedback, in game: max, Fanatec profile: 70% (may differ on your wheel)
    Wheel rotation - 900 degrees.
    This provides the most 'natural' steering input without it being manipulated by the game, however handling big slides, bumpy surfaces, and 3 point turns may require extended wheel work and practice. It's a case of being set up for fun vs being set up to be as fast as possible. I only had small issues recovering from pit maneuvers on dirt roads, which as you might expect is somewhat realistic.


    My previous more arcade setup mimicked my TDU1 wheel settings. As you adjust one setting, you need to slightly tweak the others to retain balance.

    Speed sensitive steering: up slightly to ~20%
    Steering sensitivity: down slightly to ~75%
    Steering linearity: down slightly to ~40%
    In game force feedback: down slightly to ~80%
    Wheel rotation: between 540 to 680 degrees. Go lower for more snappy instant (arcade) steering (useful in cities) or higher for more precise and relaxed cruising B road steering. Or just set it and forget it at 600 degrees and call it a day. All of my YouTube footage up until now has been with these settings.


    Also spend some time playing with the pedal sensitivity curves. You generally want to leave the accelerator as a normal linear curve, but you may want to play with the brake curve for better modulation you want to brake as late and quick as possible for corners but not come to a big stop either.

    Playing with the clutch settings may help reduce how often you get the grinding sound. It seems that you have get the clutch input to maximum before you push the gear stick into neutral.


    Finally, here's some footage from physics developer Sebastian:

    PC -
    A setting that offers good stability, particularly in drifting and at high speeds. Fishtailing is very much reduced but so is some cornering ability. Works best on wheels with limited rotation like my poor nice Logitech Momo Racing Force (240 degrees). Low steering linearity settings are often likened to that of Forza's handling model. I haven't played any Forza game myself so I wouldn't know

    Anyone else want to share their silky driving settings for others that may be looking for a better experience in the game?
    I'm a bit mental.
