Assetto Corsa Competizione is one of the most highly rated racing simulators currently on the market. While it has many qualities that make it so beloved by the community, there is one area which, in some people’s opinions, holds the game back from achieving its true potential: force feedback.
Force feedback systems are incredibly important to accurate driving simulators – they are one of the key ways in which crucial information is relayed to the driver. Now there is an app which can improve the force feedback in ACC significantly, and you can watch our video below to learn all about it!
Built on the back of the legendary irFFB, which was designed to improve the force feedback in iRacing, the ACCFFB programme offers a series of sliders which can be adjusted. These sliders apply to various aspects of ACC’s force feedback that are either not customisable in the base game, or which are missing from it outright.
One particular area of focus here is the seat of the pants effect, or the SOP. Essentially what this does is provide new forces through your steering wheel which gives the driver more detailed information about traction loss. The idea is that it makes up for the absence of the racing g-forces which cannot be simulated in your average rig.
ACCFFB is still considered to be in early-alpha, so there’s a lot of development left to go before its perfected. However, even in its early form it provides an extra layer or immersion and feeling to the ACC force feedback system. Downloading and installing the app isn’t the simplest process in the world, so you’ll want to take a look at the detailed instructions in our video to make sure you get it right!
