Thrustmaster Wheel + ERS/ fuel changes = help!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi guys. 

Just wondered how you manage to adjust ERS and Fuel during races? I have the Thrustmaster F1 wheel add on, and it's fiddly for me having to scroll up/ down the in game menu and use the rotation buttons to go up/ down the settings. 

Is there a device or anything that could help me? Is love to have extra buttons on my wheel specifically for changing ERS and Fuel rather than having to fiddle with the in game menu. 

Thanks in advance 🙂

Would love to help, but its the same story for me, been struggling on my new T150 and its ruining my concentration. If you use auto gears I would probably change the menu/ers on the pedals. But hey this is just me.

Ah, I suppose I don't use X and Triangle during the race. Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a go 🙂

Hey i have the same wheel. You can use the MFD shortcut in the F1 2018 game.

I have the left rotation button for fuel change (up is lower fuel) and the right rotation button for ERS changes (up is lower ERS)

This works good and much easier then going in your MFD everytime you want to change it.

See hereby my settings to use this in the Wheel Settings in the 2018 game.

Please let me know if this was helpful

Here are my settings i use on the T150 / T300:

Alternatively you can swap fuel mix increase / decrease with Voice Control and MFD, to get both fuel mix + ers mode all done with square / x / triangle / circle and not having to move your hands off the wheel quite that often.

 

Changing Camera Angles can be done in the main start menu and flashbacks are accessible this way as well, so there is no need to have them linked to any buttons on the wheel itself.

 

Brake Bias and Differential are changed with the Direction buttons up / down / left / right.

 

Those using Fanatec wheels have a huge advantage in regards of getting more buttons, switches and rotaries to play around with.

 

There are many ways to choose your layout, experiment a bit to find your sweet spot.
