Share your OSW Settings

cookie

I've seen several posts about OSW settings so I figured it would be good to have a thread where all OSW users can post their settings to help other out. So if you have been using your OSW for a while and have it dialed in please share your settings. I attached pics of my Default set which I use with my 330mm rim.

Hardware:

HRS servo similar to the Small MiGe with Ioni drive 500 watt AnTek psu.

Edit: You should set MUL/DIV (50%/50%) to a value that result to 100% if not you won't get the full range that the Motor can deliver, playing with these filters will introduce a lag in response behaviour.

controller.json:

"Steering effects strength":-10000,
"Rumble strip pull factor":-1.5
"Steering resistance type":0,
"Steering torque capability":18,
"Steering torque filter":3,
"Steering torque minimum":0,
"Steering torque per-vehicle mult":0.83,
"Steering torque sensitivity":1,

Great stuff!

Do you keep different presets for openwheelers/gt/road cars in terms of strengths and steering lock?

I hope the guys who work on the drivers can have rF2/any sim of your choice control steering lock in the future :)

I make different Mmos profiles for most cars mainly to get the right steering lock
 
cookie built my osw and I have now used his settings and its so much better. The wheel was already awesome and now better awesome. LOL

Thanks for all the advice and pointing me in the right direction, copied your settings and much better, wow this thing has some power... Anyway how do you deal with steering lock, i can't get the flat 6 (for example) to match on screen wheel rotation to OSW wheel?

edit: Think i figured out what you meant above, set both MMOS and vehicle set to the same rotation :)
 
Great your up and running there a few settings that you should play with to suit your personal taste, one is TBW (torque bandwidth)you can go as high as 3300Hz and low as 150Hz the other is in game Steering torque filter, I prefer a more rounder FFB but others prefer harsher FFB. Another thing worth doing is a auto tune in machine tab (measure resistance & induction).

Great I've done the auto tune now :) finding it so different after a G25 the strength is insane, how people drive this let along bigger servos anywhere near full is beyond me. I'm running your settings in Granity and 60% force in MMOS but for the Apex GT mod i'm at 0.5 vehicle specific, is that ok or should i be dropping force in MMOS more?
 
Please take into consideration that you now have the luxury of dialing in greater forces than the actual cars do. More power isn't always the most realistic option.

I'm hoping to receive a small mige next week myself, can't freaking wait to hook it up once the electronics are done :)
 
Markj i think it's better to set 100% in mmos and tone down to your likings the ffb multiplier in game. You will feel the lower forces way better. I'm running apex cars at 0.4 to 0.5 ingame

Thanks will give that a go, not sure MMOS @ 100% even with 0.4 i'll last too long :) got a 144min race next weekend.... I'll get fitter that's for sure. Just ordered paddle shifters but till they arrive using g25 shifter so one handed on gear change you really feel it.
 
I know :) but you can go even lower. Like i said adjust till it's okay with you. There is no right or wrong ;)
 
You can go lower with the amps in Granity, try 8 amps and keep Mmos at 100%.
 
Do you need to change the 'Steering torque capability' in the controller settings file if i turn down amps? Presume it won't hit the 18 that is in there at the moment with amps turned down?
Tried lower vehicle multiplier and the up to 100% in MMOS and does seem to feel a little more detailed, possibly a tiny bit grainy at high forces, is that just a need for more ingame filtering or in the servo itself?

@wgeuze - not sure what wheel you have now but you're going to love this, it brings out the 'just one more lap' syndrome. Have you gone for the SimuCUBE or a kit from somewhere?
 
Markj i have set the overall filter in mmos at 6 to get rid of grainy feeling.
I only tell you how i have done the last 2 weeks, Cookie is much more knowledgeable tho
 
I have found that high tbw + lots of filter from mmos feels better to me than lower tbw + less filter.
I'm running with 1500 hz tbw and 15 overall filter at the moment and it feels very good.

I think that it gives better ffb quality to soften the ffb with the filter instead of using low tbw values.

I'm using Argon + Lenze MCS12H15-

Thanks Korva, i've tried it (was running tbw 470) and i also find this very good more precise. I've got filter in mmos set to 6

Using Simucube/ioni pro hc with small mige
 
Hey guys bit ot here but can i upgrade my w7 64 to w10? I mean should i expect problems with mmos, granity or my osw by doing so? Thnx for your answers
 
I upgraded to win10 a few weeks ago and no problem, all works fine mMos and granity.
Eddy could you tell me whether you can run the Simucube in IONICUBE(4axis/CNC) mode which is the old ioni setting
 
I upgraded to w10 from 7 before getting Simucube but had no issues. I have read about a few people needing a manual install of the driver but mine worked fine.

I don't realy get what you mean here cookie, could you explain it a bit different so i understand. I'm happy to explore and tell all about it [emoji5]

Edit: do you mean choose ionicube as option in granite? The place where i now have choosen simucube?

Think it means in Granity can we set to Ioni rather than SimuCUBE,i've got it as an option along with 'Standard' so presume we can?
 
Sorry for the vague question, yes I want to know if you can set it to Ioni rather than SimuCUBE in Granity. The reason being is when I,ve tried SimuCUBE mode with my Ioni it deadens the ffb around the center, I think it could be programed like that to stop the oscillation in iRacing.
So before swapping out my Ioni to the SimuCUBE board I would like to know whether I can go back to my old settings.

I'm off to bed now but will give it a try tomorrow and report, if that is okay with you.

Sorry Cookie it took me a bit longer. Yes i can set it to ioni and run it. But in ioni i don't have filter options in granity which i do have when i set it to simucube. I couldn't feel much difference. Why you got a different feeling when you set your system to simucube could be your main or motherbord isn't simucube obviously but i'm just guessing here.

I hope this answered your question.
 
Because off Cookies question i started fiddling with settings again.

I now have got:
TBW 3300
Granity damping filter 1%
Mmos overall filter 3 %
Mmos max force 100%
Mmos NO!!! User or desktop effects

Ingame:
FFB multiplier most of the time ~0.5(mod dependant and user šŸ˜Š dependant)
FFB filter 0

These settings are very much to my liking the little mige is not as harsh anymore feeling buttersmooth and the precision of steering is higher than i have ever had (don't mis no apexes anymore........if i've got the braking right hehe)
 
Thanks for sharing Eddy, that's a high TBW setting does your motor start to make more noise with that? Mine sounds a bit like a fridge but gets louder the higher TBW. Going to do try changing settings on mine later, which cars have you tested with?

Sorry Markj have been away.

Yup engine starts to make a little noise, that is why i set the mmos filter. With 3 overall in mmos the noise is totaly gone. But, and that is the problem with mige, the servos from mige difer a lot so you have to try what works best for you.

I tested these settings with apex gt3 (my favorite) and formula isi. Tracks i used where modern spa, bugatti and hockenheim.
 
Thanks for testing the IONI mode for me Eddy, I would hate to go backwards on what I've got now.
 
Please try my settings for MiGe as in below screenshots, it works with IONI Pro and IONI Pro HC, even if you have SimuCube or not. You just need to click advance settings under Tuning tab. Please set the TBW lower, to something 680HZ and lower, I was just testing different effects all the way to high TBW levels.

This is what I am using, still very good fidelity, but zero oscillation. It totally removes oscillation under all conditions, and you can even play with the numbers a bit to fine tune to your liking - these settings are ok for both small and large MiGe, I am using little different for Lenze setup, so can also make a screendump of those if someone needs.

Also note, the settings are effective immediately when you hit apply settings, no need to restart the drive. Just remember to save to drive non-volatile memory before you shut down, as a precaution, so you are sure new settings are saved and active next boot.

edit: as an added advice, please leave the Oscillation setting in iRacing GUI disabled/unticked when using my settings below!!

and in MMoS panel:

i asked Beano if it was okay to post this here and it was.

I didn't like it for our sim but my settings now are

[TED] Damping effect 1%
[TEF] Friction effect 0%
[TEI] Inertia effect 0%

The [NFF],[NFA] and [NFQ] i've set like Beano said and tbh i like these settings.

Hope this will help somebody to adjust his DD servo wheel. Again thank you Beano!!!!

Is there difference using 100/100 (default) vs 50/50?
 
theoretically speaking, if i have a servo (lenze mcs12) would i be able or possible to have control box built or purchase hardware/ parts to build something based on simucube? (thx guys for your help! great OSw community!!! )

Definitely.
It is what I did to build my OSW (with IONIcube) last year.
Now with simucube it is far easier.

Correct setup parameters for your motor could be found elsewhere on the internet.

With simucube it's easier because you don't need the Discovery card anymore.
 
thank you Led566, appreciate the info. and the thought I am playing with now, is to go with simucube but use my existing Lenze MCS12 29Nm servo.
 
Hi mate I really don't know anything about the Argon drive, but your HV bus voltage should be higher than 6.2vdc more like 48vdc, if it's too low it won't initialize.
