Force Feedback guru Leo Bodnar has published a very interesting article on Google Docs, explaining while the Force Feedback simulation in current simulations using current wheels falls short of being realistic.
Leo is very much a man in the know, having designed both software and hardware Force Feedback solutions, including a popular plugin for rFactor.
In the article, Leo explains why the current FFB simulation can’t be solved by more powerful or more smooth wheels as the underlying approach how FFB is handled by the current hardware & software is fundamentally flawed.
It’s not all bad though as Leo does not just criticize but also points out a possible solution for improvement. If you´re into the topic of Force Feedback and sim racing physics, make sure to not miss out on his excellent article.
