Description (Click to toggle Visibility)

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:

Install rFactor in a different different folder like C:/Games/rFactor.
The Program Files folder is quite locked down.
Also run all exe as Administrator.

Delete win 8 and go back to windows 7
Slobbeman on Mar-14-2015

Hi Again !
I have this Problem with win 8.1 that it doesn`t allow the plugin to modify the rfactor files and folders, hence Realfeel couldn`t work ((
Got any ideas what could I do to solve this ???
Muckytuja on Mar-14-2015

He Dear Devs ! RealFeel is Fantastic and I miss it soooo much, since I`ve switched to WIN 8.1 x64, It DOESN`T WORK ANY MORE !!!!!!!!!!!
I`ve tried to run as administrator, unticked the read only box, but still doesn`t make it work.
Pleas Tell Me what could be the problem, cause I`m sure, Windows fukked it up!

R32 Tuner, it sounds like maybe you don't have it setup correctly. In rFactor, under SETTINGS>CONTROLS>FORCE FEEDBACK, try moving the FORCE FEEDBACK STRENGTH in the opposite direction of where it's presently at. So, for example, if your FFB strength is set to +100%, slide it left to -100. In some cases, you won't want 100%, maybe lower, but the point is, some mods were designed to work with positive FFB and other were designed to work with - FFB. I've not used RealFeel in a while, but make sure to read all the instructions, if I recall they specify how your FFB settings should be set. I think the effects in rFactor need to be set to LOW so the realfeel gets picked up. Also, when you are selecting a car, look under the spinner for the 'UPGRADES' button, in some mods that will allow you to specify RealFeel as the driving default. Hope that helps

Real Feel my arse... This is horrible, my wheel was going crazy. Turn left a little bit and my wheel forces itself all the way left. Doesn't seem that realistic to me. No car I've ever driven feels like this.

Not only that, but I'm not even moving and my wheel shakes like crazy. I think my desk moved.
