Hello, Christina!
I don't wanna be a pain in the ass, but please fix/improve the FFB. I cannot enjoy the game to the fullest without a good FFB.
I use a wheel. Logitech Driving Force GT PC Steam. The FFB is very weak and in some places i don't feel it.
Is it normal that 2000's and R5 cars to be so unstable?
Thanks.

For some reason, my T300 does not save any button mappings anymore. They all are unbound every time I start the game. Does someone else have this kind of problem, or is the problem at my end?

Thanks Dirt Team!!!

@ChristinaMc Does "Staff contracts now reduce at their expected rate in Pro Tour and Jam Session." mean that they don't reduce at all? Or fully championships in Jam Session will count as 1 and not every stage?

The FFB is a massive improvement over DR. Just set your values higher Mario...

Each completed championship will reduce it by one.  It is up to the host of the Jam Session how many stages are in each championship.

Hello @LutzM!
Can you post here your settings, please! I tryed everything and still the same. For some reason Dirt Rally have a better FFB than Dirt 4.
What values i have to put higher?
Thanks.

I have a Logitech G920, have everything on 100% and changed nothing as for me FFB has improved massively over Dirt Rally, where it took me quite a time to get a right feeling...
Go to your logitech profiler and set the forces from 100 to 125% and try it, maybe finetune afterwards...

Try these for DFGT (Works for me, but haven not updated them yet to DFGT settings thread for DIRT 4)
LOGITECH PROFILER
Overall effects strenght: 110%
Spring effect: 100%
Damper Effect: 100 %
Enable Centering spring : YES
Centering spring strength: 40% (7-50% is okay)

In-Game
Steering align torque: 80 (50-100)
Wheel friction: 100-120% (less if want more lively)
Tyre friction: 150 % (100-150%, same rule as with wheel friction)
Tyre slip 80% 
Everything else at 100%

Use 900 degrees or other without softlock.

BTW these are quite "strong/high" settings for DFGT so you should feel something.

(In fact you could leave everything in game at 100% / default if you use my Profiler settings)
If it still feel very light something is wrong with your wheel & Dirt 4. Maybe drivers etc problems.) Hope this helps

How does it feel unnatural? Is it too twitchy / too soft etc?

I only tryed 125% on logitech profiler. I didn't touch nothing else in-game. But it feels very strong the FFB. The wheel shake too much.

It helps for wheel shaking to drop Steering Align Torque aka. SAT to 40-80 and put 25-50% of Centering spring from profiler.
Profiler overall effect in is best about 100-110 % (gets rid of dead center) but you can use anything below if you want less shakiness & lighter wheel
Usually if you have Profiler Centering spring & SAT at the same value (try 50%) it works quite nicely without shakiness


More centering spring you have more dampened FFB feels. The rule with DFGT is to have some centering spring with wheel friction & tyre friction. Then also have low enough SAT that it isn't too twitchy

(Wheel friction and tyre friction are considered to be canned effects as is Centering spring from Profiler but with DFGT + Dirt 4 i think you need them. If you want more Lively / Raw / Wild wheel use less)

@TuliRally your settings are not working for me. The wheel stays very heavy to turn. My brother have the same wheel as mine and have the same problem and everytime he plug in the wheel to play the game he needs to install the Logitech drivers again.

Lets continue this in DFGT thread if its okay for you? Of course there might be also a bug or some other problem here that Devs need to know.

If it helps i also don't think that DiRT 4 FFB feels good with DFGT, atleast compared to other games. I think the problem is more in how DFGT have been built vs. Other wheels

Try this
SAT to 50% 
Wheel friction 100 % (if too light up towards 140)
Tyre friction 100%
Everything else in-game 100%
Center spring from profiler to 8-25%
Overall effects 100% 
If it feels generally good but too light up the Overall effects towards 110%
If too heavy tey lowering.
If there any other weird behaviour compared to DR?

Yep... no problem for me.
I know that are other people whit the same problem that me regardind to weak FFB or lack of it.
With your settings i need to low the SAT to 30% to make the turns

Thank you, I had to give up the monthly because you replace the xml file I changed to make my wheel work properly.
"- Added the ability to configure unsupported devices."
Haha, all you have done is deleting the work we made to use our unsupported devices...
