Damper or Friction mode?
“SPR and DPR values have no effect by default. They can be enabled through the app.ini, but this is not recommended.”
Why is this ^ (Friction Mode) not recommended?
Because Friction is a completely different thing and applied constantly and is not a game effect.
So setting the app.ini damper 2 = Friction isn’t adding friction as a game effect? All I’m doing is loosing some suspension dampening detail?
Friction is exclsuively handled by the NFR setting in the Tuning Menu and is an effect constantly applied also when not in game - its game independand so it doesnt matter what damper value you set in the app.ini
Ok thanks, so what am I actually changing when I change the damper mode to setting 2?
I have no idea as it's recommended to not use any kind of Damper.
Oh okay sorry I was under the impression that you knew what you were talking about.
I can't remember where I read this, but I recall one of the iracing dev guys saying leave it at 0 and dont change it to 1 or 2.
