Description was taken from the official rFactor Central page.

To get the real feel for yourself simply drop the attached RealFeelPlugin.dll into your rFactorPlugins folder.

What Does It Do?

It replaces the standard rFactor force feedback with a simple algorithm that sends the forces acting on the steering rack directly to the steering wheel.

How Do I Use It?

Drop the RealFeelPlugin.dll into your rFactorPlugins folder. Go Race!

What's the file RealFeelPlugin.ini that has appeared in my rFactor folder?

That is the RealFeel configuration file, where you can specify different settings for each class of car, specify the overall damping level and disable the plugin.

For more technical details and for bug-reporting please see this thread:




Version 0.6.0 Released

* SteeringDamper setting can now be overridden for each mod individually

* FFB Mixing, 100% RealFeal, 100% rFactor FFB, or any mix of the two - adds 'life' to FFB for mods that previously just did not respond to the RealFeel Plugin


Version 0.8.0 Released

* Adds HotKey support and Console view. Please see RSC thread and/or RealFeelReadMe.txt for more details.


Version 0.8.1 Released

* Default steering damper set back to 2500, from 11500 (no damping) of v0.8. No damping caused issues with some wheels, sorry about that.

* KeyRepeatDelay added to config file, default of 0.1s which should cure the issues some people were having with multiple presses being registered.

* Speech enabled by default.


Version 0.8.2 Released

* Bugfix release. Fixes memory leak in HotKey routines.


Version 0.9.0 Released

* New configurable parameter ConsoleRepeatDelay dictates the rate at which the console info is displayed (the value is the number of seconds to wait before updating the console output, default of 0.1 is 10 updates per second).

* Console output of FFB value changed to a percentage. Anything over 100% will mean your wheel is pulling as hard as it can (within the limits of your current controller setup).

* Console output changed so that values can be copied & pasted directly into a spreadsheet for analysis. See example below.

* New configurable parameter SmoothingLevel dicates the amount of smoothing applied to the raw SteeringArmForce. Applicable values are 0 to 9, with 0 being no smoothing and 9 being max smoothing (a weighted average of the last 9 values). Controllable via Hotkey, RightControl + Numpad0 to decrease, RightControl + NumpadDecimal (.) to increase.

* New configurable parameter MinSpeed dictates the speed (in kph) at which RealFeel disables itself in favour of default FFB (default of 10kph)

Version 0.9.2 Released

Two new features added.

First is logging console output to a file. This is controlled by an entry in the [General] section of the RealFeelPlugin.ini:


This will log all console output to the file RealFeelLog.txt in the rFactor root folder. The file is reset to zero size on rFactor startup so if you want to keep the data take a copy (or rename the file) before restarting rFactor.

The second new feature is the ability to control the default MaxForceAtSteeringRack, SteeringDamper and SmoothingLevel that will be used for new entries (i.e. cars not driven before). These entries are also in the [General] section of the RealFeelPlugin.ini:
