If you are faced with high cpu usage in the Assetto Corsa and you are using a Microsoft sidewinder force feedback wheel (usb) then this guide is going to help you fix this problem.

Just go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa\system\cfg and find the file called assetto_corsa.ini
Open the file with text editor and find the following string :

[FORCE_FEEDBACK]
MAX_FF_RATE_HZ=333

And change it to:

[FORCE_FEEDBACK]
MAX_FF_RATE_HZ=50

Now your game should run smoothly.

If you happened to brick your non-HiLink modem with the HiLink firmware, this guide will help you to unbrick it.

This guide apply’s to the non-HiLink Huawei E3276s-150.

You will need the following files:
-HiLink drivers Huawei HiLink Drivers
-Huawei E303 HiLink Firmware (we need it to initialize the device) Huawei E303 Firmware
– Latest Huawei E3276s-150 Firmware E3276s_Update_21.436.03.00.00
– Huawei Flash Code generator Huawei Unlocker

Steps:
1.Download all the files.
2.Extract and install HiLink drivers
3.Plug in your modem
4.Disconnect from network (I had a problem because my main router is on 192.168.1.1 and the device didn’t want to initialize, because it uses the same address)
5.Start the Huawei E303 HiLink Firmware and install. This will prepare your device for the proper firmware. It will return with an error.
6.Start the Huawei E3276s-150 Firmware and install, use the Flash Code generator to generate the code necessary for the flashing.
