iRacing – FergoTech iRacing Force Feedback Clipping Tool.

 

 

 iRacing – FergoTech iRacing Force Feedback Clipping Tool.

FergoTech  did a little update on his iRacing FFB Tool to output clipping data through the serial port.

That allowed him to use the same TM1638 display of his “DIY Shiftlights and Dashboard” project to show Force Feedback clipping information in real time, without having to use the sim in Windowed mode.

iRacing FFB Tool is an application that helps you detect when your force feedback is clipping and also choose an optimal value for the FFB strength multiplier in iRacing, so you can use it at it’s best.

Clipping in force feedback has the same concept that audio clipping, that is basically having a force strength (waveform amplitude) “outside” of the limits. If you have a very strong FFB multiplier, a very low torque on the steering shaft might already send 100% of force to the wheel controller, meaning that you won’t be able to feel the FFB details on forces above the current one, as your wheel is already working at it’s maximum torque.
