Steering wheel setup
« on: November 12, 2013, 01:11:13 PM »
It is important to correctly setup the steering wheel.

1 ) In the steering wheel profiler, disable the centering spring and damping, or at least let the software override them.
2 ) Take note of the rotation ( the suggested value is 180 ).
3 ) In Kart Racing Pro -> Settings -> Input -> Calibration, calibrate the steering wheel rotating it from lock to lock, and then leave it perfectly centered before pressing "Ok".
4 ) Click on the right of Controls -> Steer and steer LEFT to assign the control.
5 ) Under Advanced -> Steer, set deadzone to 0, linearity to 100 and leave smooth unchecked.
6 ) Enable force feedback and set strength to 100%, deadzone to 0% and linearity to 100%
7 ) Enable wheel rotation and set it directly or use the wizard. In both cases the value should match the rotation set in the profiler.

8 ) If you are experiencing vibration on straights, please try increasing force feedback deadzone in steps of 5. This shouldn't be needed on the Logitech G25 and G27.
9 ) If you feel the force in the center is a bit weak, you can try lowering the force feedback linearity.

This is how the FF curve looks like at 0 ( top ) and 100 ( bottom ) linearity:

Hi there. do you have any advice for setting up a Thrustmaster t500rs, when i follow the instructions above to set it to 180 degrees and do a lock to lock on the wheel in the game calibration it feels like i have to turn the wheel a bigger distance to turn to same distance in the game. What i have tried to do is set the wheel up so if i turn the wheel 90 degrees to the right(my left hand is directly at the top of the wheel) and this then matches the hand on the wheel in the game. would this be a good way to set it up of does anyone who is using the T500rs have a better way?

I notice that the addresseed is not like before, turning a bit and makes u Kart abrupt. I have a g27

I resolved not following this tutorial.

Here my G27 settings for Logitech Profiler and KRP:
http://forum.kartracing-pro.com/index.php?topic=5130.msg39778#msg39778
They still work well for KRP beta13b.

If the kart still turns too sharp when steering, lower "Caster" to e.g 17. If you have too much oversteer, you can try
to decrease the "Track width" at the rear axle.

Months ago i was able to use my Driving Force GT wheel very well. Now with 13b i cant.. Dont know why.. my wheel goes crazy like right left right left its like being possessed.. If i turn in game settings force feedback off this problem dissapears. But i want force feedback. I use all settings just like PiBoSo but it inst worrking as suposed.
In settings menu under force feedback i have tried everything.. Increase/decrease of force feedback linearity and deadzone with mixed possibilities and lots of diverent values but still goes crazy..
What can be the problem??

Did you check the settings in your Logitech Profiler? For a first test you could use my G27 Profiler settings.
Here are my settings.  Everything not mentioned (linearity, dead zone, smooth ...) is default.

Wheel:                      Logitech G27

---------
Logitech Profiler:

Overall Effects Strength:                                 100%   
Spring Effect Strength:                                   0%
Damper Effect Strength:                                   0%

Enable centering Spring in Force Feedback Games:          checked   
Centering Spring Spring Strength:                         0%

Report Combined Pedals:                                   unchecked
Degrees Of Rotation:                                      180

Allow Game To Adjust Settings:                            checked

---------
KRP:
Settings (Input)

Force Feedback
Enable:                     checked
Strength:                   100%

Wheel Rotation
Enable:                     checked
Angle:                      180
