G25 brake glitch

16 Replies 1,324 Views Created 12-12-2010
Hi, I have the Logitech G25 and its been working fine for the past few years. With GT5 it sometimes registers the brake being as much as half on. When my foot is nowhere near it. I have heard other people having the same problem. It still isn't fixed for me, but is there some kind of work around to fix it? I have managed to get all golds so far but it's starting to get hard with the higher powered cars. Not only is it slowing me down, it's also making my car unstable through turns. Rather annoying and near makes te game unplayable for me. To busy looking if my brakes are left on than looking for apexes etc Any help is much appreciated. Thanks. Smiley Happy

Hi Karl, I haven't had a problem with the brake, but I did notice the accelerator coming on on it's own a while back, only slightly though.

 

I fired up Prologue just to make sure it wasn't a faulty pot, and it wasn't, it was definately GT5, can't remember which car it was in, maybe the SLS Mercedes?

 

But no brake problems to report.

I had the same issue with my brake as well, I have the clubsport pedals but I'm sure its the same problem.  When you turn on your wheel to calibrate, hold down the brake pedal during the calibration about 2 - 5cm and that should fix your brake being on problem.

Re: G25 brake glitch

Try like I said hold down the brake pedal a little before you turn on your wheel, it will work.

Re: G25 brake glitch

I had the very same problem with my dfgt and my solution involved a hacksaw and a sharp knife bit ***** off I had to resort to butchering my pedals would of been so much easier if PD had included the ability to alter the deadzones..

LOL.......That would have been my last resort, and I don't think I still would have done that.

 

Yes PD should have included deadzone adjustably, but holding the brake down a tiny bit while calibrating moves the dead zone down so when your not on the brake it's not coming on.

Re: G25 brake glitch

This is worrying to hear, that all the latest wheels are suffering problems, i am still using my Driving Force Pro and was looking to upgrade soon, but my wheel has no problems with this game.

Why is the old wheel not suffering problems but the new wheels are?

Re: G25 brake glitch

Is this fixed in the 1.05 update? I hope so!

 

I have this same annoying prob with my G25 brake flickering on and off. kills too much speed to play.

 

There is nothing wrong with the wheel itself. Am using it for rfactor, GTR2,  iracing etc
