The main reason why I rarely play this game is because I have to use the "back to center" feature of the Steering wheel application that I use (Logitech G29), but after finding out that this game already has a force feedback (FFB) feature.
Even though it is not as popular as other driving games such as ETS2, BeamNG, Assetto Corsa, or other driving games, in my opinion, the City Car Driving Game has a unique selling point, players have to really carry out every technique when driving a car, starting from putting on a seat belt, starting it. lights, until the car turns off.
Before executing the tutorial below, first, make sure the steering wheel you are using is connected to the PC you are using.
How to Enable Force Feedback in City Car Driving
- On the game's main page, please open the "Settings" menu
- On the settings page, please open the "Control" option
- In the Control unit settings, you select "Steering wheel"
- In the Set of settings, please select the name of the Steering wheel that you are using. In this example, I used "Logitech G29 + Shifter".
- Next, please click the "Advanced settings" button
- In the Group of settings column, please select "Feedback"
- Check or activate the "Switched on" section
- In the Feedback device settings, please select the name of the steering wheel you are using. In this example, I use "Logitech G Hub G29 Driving Force"
- In the Force feedback scale settings, please set the FFB strength when needed.
- Done. At this point, you will be able to feel FFB when driving in-game. For advanced settings please continue reading.
Set the Pedal's Dead zone and linearity
Before changing the dead zone and linearity settings, I recommend trying to play or drive a car in this game first, if nothing bothers you, I recommend not changing anything. But if something doesn't fit, please change the pedal settings using the method below.
- Go to the "Advanced settings" page
- In the Group of settings, please select Vehicle control
- Please adjust the "Dead zone" and "linearity" for each pedal you use: Gas, Brake, and clutch.
Tips for setting the FFB Scale:
For users of the Logitech G29 steering wheel, I recommend using the full scale (stuck right), because in my experience the FFB on the Logitech G29 is less pronounced. In other games there are no problems, FFB is very noticeable, but in the City Car Driving game, it is lower than others.
For those of you who use steering wheels with direct drive motors such as Fanatec, Moza, Thrustmaster DD, etc., please try it first on a medium scale, if it still doesn't feel right, please increase it periodically until you are comfortable using it.
Hopefully, this tutorial on how to activate Force Feedback in the City Car Driving game is useful. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments column below as usual. Remain a wise user. Happy driving.
