    How do you even get a Fanatec 2.5 + V3 pedals to work in this game? It detects the wheel in game, but no reaction whatsoever on any button, paddles, pedals etc. If i try to map something it does not register it at all. Ded. (Latest demo).

    NOTE: Friend has same issue with his CSL Elite / McLaren rim.

    Not sure if this will help but I always have to power on my CSW before running rF2. If I run rF2, then power on the wheel, it won't be recognized.

    Try rebooting your machine, then powering on the CSW, then running rF2 and see if that helps.

    Thanx but it was on before launching the game. Was in iRacing jsut before that and it worked there. Strange that it detects the wheel if i press [DETECT]. Will try play around some more.

    Got it to work. Before you can map anything else you need to map the steering first (left/right), then it all worked....

    I just stumbled across this the other day for anyone that hasn't seen them already.

    https://www.fanatec.com/forum/discussion/658/rfactor-2-pc-fanatec-recommended-settings

    General Notes:
    - The settings below are considered to be reasonable baseline values for rFactor 2 (PC). They might not suit all tastes and driving styles, but they are a good starting point. Bear in mind that rFactor 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.

    - rFactor 2 has the ability to provide a 'raw' force feedback signal that can generate significant mechanical noise on some wheel bases, which can be reduced through a combination of lower FEI values (Fanatec Tuning Menu) and higher FFB Smoothing values (rFactor 2 menu). This is highly dependent on the vehicle selected - the Skip Barber 2013, for example, communicates more surface detail with FFB Smoothing at max (32) than the BMW M6 GTE 2018 with FFB Smoothing at 0. While it is important to keeping smoothing to a minimum for the most 'detail', it is not unreasonable to add a significant amount of smoothing (values above 10) for some vehicles.

    - 'Car Specific FFB Mult' is a value that should be adjusted in combination with the clipping tool. In doing so you can maximise the dynamic range of the FFB but lose some of the feeling of variety between car types.

    - Please ensure you are using the latest firmware for all Fanatec devices.

    ClubSport Wheel Base V2.5
    Tuning Menu Settings:
    SEN AUT
    FF 45
    SHO 100
    ABS User Preference
    DRI -02
    FOR 100
    SPR 100*
    DPR 100*
    BRF User Preference
    FEI 060

    *SPR and DPR values have no effect.

    In-Game Settings:
    FFB Smoothing: User Preference
    FFB Minimum Torque: 0

    I have CSW v2.5 + CSW Formula Carbon + ClubSport Pedals V3 inverted and this is my setup for most of the cars
    Tuning Menu Settings:
    SEN AUT
    FF 100
    SHO 100
    ABS - 85
    DRI -05
    FOR 100
    SPR 100
    DPR 100
    BRF 50
    FEI (0 - 100) Depends on the car (mostly 0 since a lot of cars provide too strong rumble effects when going over kerbs or on the grass)

    In-Game Settings;
    FFB Smoothing: 0
    FFB Minimum Torque: 0

    SPR and DPR are absolutely game changers for me, I drove long time with DPR set to 0, but after changing to 100, FFB is top notch for me, not just in rf 2 but all other sims. So not sure if it is wheel related, but for me, setting DPR to 100 and DRI to -5 got the best FFB by far compared to any other Tuning Menu setup.
