I’ll admit, I’ve had to be extremely patient with it.
G27 users have reported very similar problems, so it’s probably affected Logitech wheels across the board. I only bought and began mastering a wheel right at the end of the the F1 2011 saga, and 2012 kinda put me back to square one. Then, when I finally got used to it, they released the patch, which changed it all again :D
the force feedback I find much heavier too.
You can actually keep the feedback nice and strong and the wheel heavy (although that’s just my personal preference!). It’s the environmental feedback I’ve had to turn down, as I find going over kerbs makes it feel like the wheel could break. That could be what you mean. Way to go, Codemasters…
