F1 22 (PC) - Fanatec Recommended Settings

Dominic BrennanDominic Brennan Member, Administrator

General Notes:

  • The settings below are considered to be reasonable baseline values for F1 22 (PC). They might not suit all tastes and driving styles, but they are a good starting point.
  • 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.
  • These settings assume you have updated all firmware from the latest Fanatec Driver package (available on the front page of the Fanatec website).
  • If you cannot access all the settings shown below, you are probably in the Standard Tuning Menu. To switch to the Advanced Tuning Menu, first enter the menu (short-press the Tuning button once), then press and hold the Tuning button for about four seconds.
  • You may see additional Tuning Menu settings depending on your connected devices. These additional settings are not relevant to force feedback, and are not listed here.
  • The settings for the CSL DD / Gran Turismo DD Pro are suitable for 5 Nm and 8 Nm (Boost Kit 180).
  • The settings for the Podium Wheel Bases assume you are in High Torque Mode. In Low Torque Mode, the same settings can be used, but with a higher FF value.

Comments

  • Dominic,

    I was under the impression, due to what Maurice has posted on this page:

    https://forum.fanatec.com/discussion/26510/fanatec-driver-447-public-release-version-prev-445-446-for-csl-csw-and-podium-wb-all-wheels/p5#

    that using SEN Auto is not recommended with the current drivers (and hasn't been for some time now, it seems). Are we to take this as confirmation that the issue has been fixed (or soon will be, in a pending driver release)? Or do the recommended settings you've posted not take this issue into account?

  • This is a bug I've never had and I struggle to understand.

    Basically if you use a SEN = AUTO profile, when you quit the game, go back to the Windows desktop, and load another game, the rotation of the wheel remains affected by the previous game.

    How is it possible?

    When you change your game, don't you necessarily have to change the profile of the steering wheel?

    Fanalab for example does it autonomously, those who do not use Fanalab just have to move the setup number on the steering wheel.

    But shouldn't each loaded profile necessarily overwrite the profile previously stored in the wheelbase?

    I have never noticed this problem.

    I use SEN equal to the rotation value imposed by the game.

    If the game says AUTO I also set AUTO on the steering wheel. If the game wants a number, I set the same number on the wheel. For example 1080 = 1080, 900 = 900, 540 = 540, 360 = 360 and AUTO = AUTO. Each time I change the game, the profile sets the degrees of rotation that I think are right for that game and overwrites the profile of the previous game.

    It's incorrect?

    Hi Gregg, the recommendation is specific to F1 22, and there is no issue with using SEN Auto on the PC version of this game. The issue with SEN Auto relates to the communication of a SEN value when switching to another game while staying on SEN Auto. Using the recommended settings for the next game automatically works around the issue. The issue will be addressed with an SDK fix in the near future, which developers will then need to implement into their games.

  • I'm not sure I completely understand. You say, "using the recommended settings for the next game automatically works around the issue". The recommended settings for Raceroom and rFactor2, for example, both utilize SEN Auto. So is there no problem switching between games that use SEN Auto?

    I'm confused as to the best course of action here. For someone like myself who plays multiple different sims (some of which use SEN Auto and some which do not), should I be going through my saved custom Fanalab profiles and replacing SEN Auto with something else e.g. 1080 or 900 just to ensure everything works as expected?

    Hi,

    I am using the settings outlined above for the CSL DD / Gran Turismo DD Pro on PC and I am finding an aweful "clunk" or very sharp impact noise or shall we say "crack" coming from the base when I collide with another car or barrier.. its quite disconcerting as it almost sounds like something that could cause the base to break.. its a loud, sharp "crack" sound. Is there a setting to get rid of this please?

  • It's an issue of rhe game, introduced with latest Patch 1.10. Codemasters is aware and will fix it soon. In the meantime as a workaround you can set On Track and Off Track effects to 0 which will workaround the issue until Codemasters fixed it properly with a new game Patch.

  • Thank you for the quick reply.. I will do as you suggest.
