Sim Racing Studio 2.0 Joystick Tuning Sim Racing Studio's default setting for movement with the joystick are set moderately. Therefore, you might not feel as much movement with the default settings as you might in other games. Once you have your Joystick profile setup and the Status is On, you will now see your joystick profile available for tuning in the Tuning window. Go to TUNING and select Motion on the left.
Profile In Use in the upper right will show the specific Joystick Profile you have turned On. Important: Any changes made in Tuning must be saved by clicking the Save button. Platform Settings
Power/Max Angle will change the overall movement of the rig. If you want overall less movement when moving the joystick, reduce this setting.
Smoothing will limit large changes of the extra quick movements from side to side.
Reaction Speed impacts how quickly the movement will change depending on the joystick input. This is a major impact on jerkiness in the movements.
Boost, which amplifies telemetry data, will increase the overall reaction of the joystick telemetry and cause a jerkiness in the movements.
Pitch – Increasing this setting will increase the motion rigs forward and backwards movement. This will provide a climbing/diving or acceleration/deceleration type of feel.
Roll – Increasing this setting will increase the amount of left and right roll the rig performs when moving the joystick left or right.
Yaw – Increasing this setting will cause the traction loss/yaw movement of your rig to move more when using pedals.
Long G Surge Accel, Long G Surge Decel, Vert G Road Heave, and Traction Loss appear to have no effect on movements from a joystick with a DOF Reality P3. Testing on a P6 will occur in August 2020.
Recommended Tuning Settings The default settings for Joystick control in Sim Racing Studio is a great starting point. It is not tuned high which can increase jerky movements. Start with the default settings and adjust based on the game and personal preference. Though some like more subtle movements to increase immersion, the joystick default settings are very conservative. Below are some recommended settings to increase movement. Note: Setting Pitch/Roll/Yaw to 20 with Power/Max Angle at 100 will provide the full movement of your rig with the Joystick profile. However, this can feel a bit extreme as it’s easy to move quickly from left to right with the joystick and the momentum from the longer travel will throw you around.
Power/Max Angle – Leave at 100. This will allow the motion rig to move to its maximum abilities based on the Pitch/Roll/Yaw settings.
Smoothing – Set to 100. This will decrease the extra quick movements when quickly moving the joystick to the extremes. It will increase immersion and the decrease in quick extreme movements will smooth the overall experience.
Reaction Speed - Leave this at 70 (minimum setting). Reaction speed increases the reaction speed and will lead to a jerky movement experience. When using the joystick, the movement will feel smooth versus violent changes in direction due to minor movements in the joystick.
Boost – Leave this at 1. Highly recommended not to raise this setting. It amplifies the telemetry data from the joystick and will immediately make all movements extremely jerky.
Pitch – High recommend increasing to 15 to add move feeling to climbing or diving.
Roll – Recommendation is to increase to 15 to add more side to side feeling when rolling or turning.
Yaw – Highly recommend increasing to 15. The default setting of 10 has very little lateral movement.
