Automobilista 2 (PC) - Fanatec Recommended Settings

General Notes:

  • The settings below are considered to be reasonable baseline values for Automobilista 2 (PC). They might not suit all tastes and driving styles, but they are a good starting point. Bear in mind that Automobilista 2 uses a dynamic physics engine covering a broad range of cars and tracks, meaning that these settings might not be 'optimal' for every possible driving scenario.
  • In order to apply the suggested settings correctly, it is important to assign both the Tuning Menu values AND the suggested In-Game settings together.
  • For the Podium Series settings, it is assumed that the Torque Key is being used.
  • In the 'Controls' menu, under 'Control Scheme', your Fanatec hardware should be automatically detected. Select the options to calibrate the wheel and pedals and follow the instructions. The 'Configuration' menu and 'Edit Assignments' menu should also have sensible defaults automatically applied.
  • Wheel speed varies significantly between different car classes. Controlling wheel speed is essential for realistic FFB. For Podium bases, this is largely influenced through the Natural Damper (NDP), and on CSL Elite and ClubSport bases, the Drift Mode (DRI). The settings below should feel reasonable with all cars, but it is weighted towards 'fast' wheel speed, which is typically more suited to open-wheel cars. Some car classes may require higher values of NDP (or lower values of Drift Mode) in order to reduce wheel speed.
  • Ensure you are using the latest wheel base firmware.
  • The Tuning Menu settings for direct drive wheel bases includes the new features introduced with the Performance Update (Driver version 352 or higher).

Comments

  • What is BLI?

    Default is off

  • Brake Level Indicator, formerly known as ABS. It controls the Threshold for Brake Vibration.

  • Suggestions on settings for ClubSport V3 pedals with Load Cell and Performance Kit that doesn't have the brakes locking up so easily?

  • Am curious what people are using for the in game settings with the new update that changed ffb so much. I have a Fanatec CSW 2.5 and after I turned off damping on the wheel (per guidance from Reiza), I was simply floored at how good the ffb felt compared to last versions. The Merc on Donington Park felt just planted with great detail. I ran default recommended settings per above on the wheel. In game, I set Gain 65, low end force to 0, fx to 40, and damper to 25. I was up late last night trying to get the Porsche cup cars to work until I saw that they seem to be gorked in this release. All good. Otherwise excellent and know it will be fixed.

  • Yeah the latest update to FFB is great. What I dont understand tho, is if we set Dampening to zero on the wheel, wont that mean the new in-game Dampening doesnt work? Or is the in-game Dampening setting using the main Force feedback channel?

  • I am no expert, but I think it just means that there was no discrete damping control coming from AMS2 and now with the add there is. With the wheel control to 0, I think you get just the damping signal from the game. I also turned off Spring on the wheel and felt like I noticed an improvement, but have no idea if thats right or wrong.

    BTW, here is where I ended up happy on my CSW 2.5.

    In Fanalab

    FF 100

    DR -1

    FEI 80

    FOR 100

    SPR OFF

    DPR OFF


    In game

    Gain 65

    Low Force 0

    FX 30

    Damping 15

    Menu Spring 0

  • for me this settings works fine in different car classes, GT3+GT4, Ultima GT and Formula Reiza.


    in Fanalab for CSL Elite:

    SEN AUTO

    FF 100%

    DRI -2

    FEI 70

    FOR 80-100 (depending on how much steering force you want in diffrent cars. Value is also depending on used steringwheel size )

    SPR 100%

    DPR 100%


    in game:

    Gain 50

    Low Force 5

    FX 15

    Damping 50

    Meny Spring as you like


    Over all the new update provides fantastic FFB, feeling what the car is doing on the track was never this good! 


    I am not sure yet if i like the new AMS2 FFB more than ACC. But i will rate it with 9,5/10

    Please update this recommended settings because it’s not on par with the current state of FFB in automobilista 2. When using this setting on DD2 I got injured wrists because the wheel is violently snapping at wheel centre.

  • Hi,

    first of thanks for the settings, but ...

    I have an "multiple input detected" error when trying to set up the Fanatec CSL Elite's steering axis in AMS2.

    It used to work but for what ever reason it does not anymore (PC Updated, and also AMS2 Updated) now I can not configure the steering.

    Its working fine in other games (Dirt2.0, ACC), and all but the steering axis can be configured AMS2. I am not sure whats causing it.

    Also the calibration of the wheel does not work - it keeps showing zero. Is there a trick to force AMS2 to configure it correctly?

    I have of course unplugged everything I can and I dont have the shifter (there is a thread about that in AMS2 Forum).

    Kind reagrds,

  • Ok, so the FFB on AMS2 through the updates have been all over the place. I had given up hope and almost uninstalled the game after trying many different combos of settings, but everything felt like I was driving on ice and no real communication at the limit.

    With the new update today, I tried something simple. Ignore all the advice of the update notes from Reiza and just set the settings the way that Fanatec recommends. And holy crap was it better, like a great game better. I tried the Porsche on Brands Hatch on AAC and on Rf2 and AMS2 was right up there in terms of feel and precision.

    For me it was factory as directed above with two tweeks. Adjusted FFB down to 90 and then Drift mode from -2 to -1. Super happy now.
