    Hello,

    I followed exactly the steps from https://www.studio-397.com/2018/11/roadmap-update-november-2018/ publication but it doesn't seem to work, at all. The default rotation reverts to some false value every time despite I save the modifications (game and launcher closed).

    Can someone explain very precisely how to use it ? Because right now I see no difference at all...

    1. Go to your wheel configuration software, or the control panel -> controllers -> your wheel -> properties, and set the lock to its maximum value (you haven't said what your wheel is, but this is often 900 degrees).
    2. In your rF2 folder, go to UserData\player\ and open up the Controller.JSON file*
    3. Find "Steering Wheel Maximum Rotation Default” and set it to the same number of degrees as you set in step 1.
    4. Find “Steering Wheel Software Rotation" and set it to true.
    5. Find “Steering Wheel Maximum Rotation from Driver” and set it to false.
    6. Consider changing “Steering Wheel Bump Stop Harshness” to a higher value, like 50, so you can feel it better (the 'stop').
    Be sure to check which option you're changing - they all look quite similar so it's easy to change the wrong ones.

    *If you originally detected your wheel, or loaded a profile, and now you just load the game and play and sometimes make changes to the Controller.JSON, this will work fine. If you change wheels/controllers and detect/load different profiles each time, save those profiles to your own custom-named files and make the above changes to those files. Then when you load the profile those settings will already be there.

    If the above doesn't work still, please give more info (wheel type especially), and show a screenshot of the relevant part of your controller.JSON file. Also note the above regarding the profiles and files; try changing another obvious parameter in your controller.JSON to check that you're editing the right one.

    Oh, the point 5 was my mistake then, I set it to true

    I own a SimuCube Mige 30 to reply your question, so I don't have a precise maximum range, I set it to 900 or 1080 usually.

    Will test with the settings you gave and will report back.
