[Config][G29]Logitech Driving Force EX

Post by ClevinStorm » Sun Nov 26, 2017 2:01 pm

First of all, I just wanted to give a massive thanks to the makers/developers of GIMX. It is an absolutely amazing product, not expensive and easy to set up. Great work guys!

So, the configuration. I haven't seen anybody post a config for the Driving Force EX. It's a pretty common wheel I think, so here's mine (I hope at least some of you find it useful):

Game: Gran Turismo Sport
Platform: PS4
Device: Logitech Driving Force EX

Config data:

Notes: IMPORTANT!
GT Sport has a glitch. When driving certain cars (Audi R8 gr3, Mazda Atenza gr3) through sharp corners and hairpins slowly, they may not turn as well as if you were using a controller and go straight into the grass.

To fix this, I suggest bumping the steering sensitivity multiplier up in the GIMX config (default is 0.0014). I found 0.0018 to work best, but you should play around with this setting yourself. You will reach steering lock faster, at around 80° of turning the wheel, so it might not be as precise, but in return you will be A LOT faster through hairpins.

Also, be on a lookout for future patches when the devs may fix this.


P.S. I haven't introduced myself in the "Introduce yourself" section. Hope that's not a problem lol.

Also, one more thing. I have seen some users say that there is in fact a Driving Force EX config in the Linux repository. Could you make it available on windows too, or at least post it here so us windows users would be able to use it? Thanks

Thanks! This is very useful. The Driving Force EX is a refresh of the Driving Force, as well as the Formula Force EX and the Driving Force RX. Since they very likely share the same button layout this will allow to have a configuration for all these wheels. I'll reset the sensitivity values to make them consistent with the other config files.

Default sensitivity for the wheel axis is 0.004, not 0.0014?

Did you know that you can adjust the acceleration to have a non-linear control over the wheel axis? This allows to have a fine control near the center, while being still able to reach the max left/right positions.
