    Does anyone know why the Brake Bias shows different values in the set up page to the in-car dash?

    same in formula pro, it shows different number instead of showing actual bias. i think it shows "position" / "clicks" from lowest settings, which is not very useful.

    agreed, I would suspect it is done to save space on the LED screen

    Well that's just silly.

    could be the case but they just could have shown rear bias only or front bias only, like you see in F1 dash.

    Please do note that i don't want Brake bias to take all of display like above, but i'm sure it can be placed easily on current brake bias indicator/number (which is at right middle position on fpro display).

    oh well, its gonna happen anyways with q4 content coming with official licensed F1 car.

    I don't think space is the issue. I would say the code responsible for setting these values for display on the wheel simply doesn't have access to the bias setup parameters (base, step) in order to show the actual bias rather than the current "value".

    How can the developer not notice this before release?

    Before release of what? The car maker can't change what the game can do. Or do other car wheels show the bias correctly?

    Good point. Logitech shows it wrong also. Although the Logitech shows it correctly in other games. Not a big issue though.

    Now I'm confused!

    They're talking about the virtual wheel, in the virtual car. Not related to the controller being used. (support for new fangled wheels with full LCD screens is another topic entirely).

    That's because we see the number of the setting of the brake bias. When the developers make the "special" entries for the brake bias we will have the possibility to make it the same values for the menu and steering wheel

    I'm trying to remember a car (official or mod) that shows this value on the LCD screen, but I can't... old rF2 problems, as usual.

    The Iron Wolf shared memory plugin is a thing which should have already been incorporated by rF2, we still suffering the lack of basic information on screen, I keep imagining how new players configure their force feedback without a FFB saturation bar. Maybe flipping a coin?

    So, what Lazza is saying, is that the in game wheel can't access the in game data of the Brake Bias.

    That's not silly at all.

    TBH it would be better if it didn't have the Brake Bias on the wheel at all if it cannot show the correct data (and by that I mean the standard Brake Bias that we all know and love).

    Good thing I have SimHub overlays to get tue actual data :)

    How this can be confusing is odd, simply put the in game set up value for BB does not match what you see on the dash of the car display when driving. Other drivers in my group saw same issue, regardless of user wheel type.
