View Full Version : Project Cars 2 - Supported Wheels (PS4) (Especially Question on T500rs)

Hey,

As the release of Pcars 2 is coming closer and closer I ask myself which Wheels will be usable for Pcars2 on the PS4?
Most of us know that the "old" Fanatec-Hardware has been cut out of the PS4-Support shortly and will not be usable for upcoming PS4-Titles. The only supported Fanatec-Wheel will be the CSL Elite.

I'm a bit worried that quiet the same will happen to Thrustmaster-Hardware. On their website they show only the T80, T150, and T300 as "PS4
-licensed". The T500, which I use, is only licensed for "PC and PS3". Is there a risk that the T500 will meet the same fate as the "old" Fanatec-Hardware and will not be usable any longer?
Naturally I don't want to buy new hardware for my T500 (Shifter, Loadcell Brake Mod etc.) as far as i know that it will be usable.

And what about the Logitech-Hardware? (G27, G29 etc.)

A List with all the supported Wheels for Pcars 2 on PS4 would be perfect!

Have a nice day :)

It's probably safe to assume the CSL Elite, T300RS, and G29 will be supported for the PS4 version since they all have the Playstation logo stamped on them. I could go on a tangent on how Sony would rather tell you to piss off and buy a new wheel than allow an older wheel be used with their console, and how anti-consumer it is, but whatever.

Supported Wheels Project Cars 2 (PS4)

Thrustmaster T80 (PS4-licensed) :yes:
Thrustmaster T150 (PS4-licensed) :yes:
Thrustmaster T300 (PS4-licensed) :yes:
Thrustmaster T500 (not PS4 licensed) :confused:

Fanatec CSL Elite (PS4 licensed) :yes:
Older Fanatec Wheels :no:

Logitech G27 (not PS4 licensed) :confused:
Logitech G29 (not PS4 licensed) :confused:

Any update on that list would be brilliant!
The T500 and the Logitech Hardware was usable for Pcars 1 on PS4, allthough it wasn't licensed. Will it be usable too for Pcars 2?

Azure Flare
25-06-2017, 08:39
The G29 is compatible with the PS4, that's why it exists in the first place.

Renoldo1990
25-06-2017, 08:43
Yeah, you're right. I looked it up. It's fully PS4 licensed.

So only the Support of the T500 and the G27 remain in Question.

I guess the T500 is the most used Wheel among PS4-Users. Would be a massive blow if it would not be usable in the game any more.

No T100 support? :(

Renoldo1990
25-06-2017, 11:38
No T100 support? :(

This falls in the same Category as the T500. It's "PS3 licensed".
So i guess we have to wait for a statement from SMS/Sony?

I added the T100 to the list:

Thrustmaster T80 (PS4-licensed) :yes:
Thrustmaster T100 (not PS4-licensed) :confused:
Thrustmaster T150 (PS4-licensed) :yes:
Thrustmaster T300 (PS4-licensed) :yes:
Thrustmaster T500 (not PS4 licensed) :confused:

Fanatec CSL Elite (PS4 licensed) :yes:
Older Fanatec Wheels :no:

Logitech G27 (not PS4 licensed) :confused:
Logitech G29 (PS4 licensed) :yes:

Supported wheels will be those that are licensed for each console platform.

amazed
25-06-2017, 16:35
The T100 is not licensed, but was supported on PC1, so this will change for PC2?

There is no official list at this time, but we can assume licensed devices will be compatible (non-licensed will depend on platform approval).

Renoldo1990
25-06-2017, 16:42

Is this an 'official' statement?

This will probably rip the whole PS4-Community apart.
There are so many Ps4-Players who played Pcars 1 with the T500 for example.

In my Racing League out of 100 drivers approx. 30 are using the T500.

This would be a massive blow. All the people would be forced either to change to the PC-Version (Buy a PC etc.) or invest in other Hardware-Devices to stay on the PS4.

Mahjik
25-06-2017, 16:43
At the end of the day, support is driven by the platform manufacturers (as they also approve or disprove releases). If the platform manufacture will not let SMS release a title including support X wheel, then the wheel will not be supported.

Renoldo1990
25-06-2017, 16:51
I know from the Fanatec-History that Sony is the 'bad guy' in this story. They are loosing so many Drivers with this behaviour..But i don't want to talk too much off topic..

So when will the approval for 'non licensed' Wheels happen?
I mean many many people have already preordered the game. This will result in a huge shitstorm if half of them won't be able to play the game with their hardware when it arrives in September.

Mahjik
25-06-2017, 16:58

First, I want to change this as far as "When will supported hardware get published?".

Don't know. It will happen when it happens.

You're welcome. :)

I guess i have to cancel my Pre-Order until further Informations are available. Can't afford a new wheel again as i just bought the 'old' T500 for Pcars 1 :(

amazed
25-06-2017, 17:25
Well, if it's Sony's decision, I reckon that the T100 is likely not to be supported, as it isn't in GT7....

Fanatec Wheels worked on Assetto Corsa first too, until they got ruled out with the first patch.
Unfortunately I don't think that the fact that the T500 works in the Beta of GT Sport will give information about if it's working in the final GT Sports or Pcars 2..

Has there been any update on this please? I'm dying to put my pre order in but I need to be sure that my T500 wheel will be supported first.
I know it's an old wheel at this stage and things move on, but still, I like it and it's still up to the job.
Here's hoping.

I guess we have to wait a little longer for a confirmation. I could imagine that at this point SMS didn't really know by themselves if the T500 will be usable for Pcars 2 on PS4.

What especially makes me feel quite unsure is that the T500 was supported for Dirt Rally (Release December 2015), but itsn't supported for Dirt 4 (Release June 2017) anymore. If you want to use it it disconnects every few minutes. If this Non-Support of the T500 at the Dirt-Rally-Series has to to with a "new" policy of Sony then the T500 will probably not work for Pcars-2 too, I guess. Otherwise if it isn't down to Sony in that case, but due to reasons of the game publisher (CodeMasters in that case), it probably doesn't look to bad for the support of the T500. Let's hope that SMS can sort this out for us T500-Users!
Can't wait to finally preorder, too!

Have CM actually stated that the T500 isn't supported on Dirt 4? Or is the support just broken?

If SMS announce that my wheel isn't going to be supported I'll just accept it and move on. It won't be thier fault anyway, it'll be because of some pencil pusher somewhere.

I just hope they tell us soon so that we can figure something out, I really like the look of those bonus cars.

Renoldo1990
02-07-2017, 17:04
I don't know really.
All i know is that T500 isn't supported for that game atm and is also not usable because of the disconnects. Though, a few people have found a way to make the T500 playable by reducing Force Feedback and stuff to nearly Zero. So maybe (hopefully) it's down to the support of the game after all and not because of Sony's Policy.

I see it the same way as you. SMS can't influence which wheels get supported on the consoles. So if they rule out the T500, the only way is to move to the PC for Pcars 2.
Buying new Sim-Racing-Hardware for playing on PS4 would be the wrong approach because it would promote Sonys (wrong) course of action.

Titzon Toast

Is the wheel overheating?
T300 is a PS4 wheel and has the same problem. It's solved by connecting to a PC, through the TM Control Panel setting the cooling fan to run always: on.

Before Sony back flipped, back '15 when pc1 first came out I know a few guys were having the same problem with their T500.

I don't think it's an overheating problem, there's a thread about it over on the CM forums.

Hypothesis. Care to test it? Set the cooling fan to always run and give it a crack. Prove me wrong and eliminate 1 possible cause.

..or at least a date when you can likely tell us.

The Dirt-rally-People still can't use their T500's.
The only Statements from Codemasters on this issue are:

"The T500 is not currently supported. If you disable the force feedback by switching it to PS3 mode it will work."

"We are looking to hopefully support it in a future update."

(http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/52861/dirt-4-ps4-t500rs-and-th8rs-compatibility)

For me the word 'hopefully' sounds like it isn't in their hands to fix it. So it's possibly the feared licensing-problem with Sony. But i'm just guessing, since we get no official response in here.
So please don't take my speculations for granted.

When Assetto came out, and the Fanatec-Hardware didn't work KUNOS said:

"We will hopefully support the Hardware soon"

Sounds similar to the T500-Codemaster-Issue. So don't know. I had a few doubts on the usability of the T500 when i created this thread here a few weeks ago. By now i have much more doubts.

I suspect SMS aren't able to give us feedback on this topic until they hand the Game into submission to Sony and get feedback from them.
Otherwise I think we would have gotten either the statement 'Yes, it will be usable' or the statement 'No, it will be not be usable' long ago as SMS interacts with their users quite willingly in general.

So, the FAQ's for Project Cars 2 are published.

http://www.projectcarsgame.com/project-cars-2-faq.html?lang=de

Not a single mention of supported Hardware.

I would definitely say that this topic is a frequently asked Question on this forum.

There is also the following note:

"If you don’t find an answer to your question below, please feel free to leave us a message on Facebook or Twitter and we will work hard to answer as many as we can."

I don't use Twitter and Facebook.
Would be nice if somebody who uses it could ask for supported Hardware on the mentioned social plattforms.

As a PS4/CSR Elite owner I was in the same boat. It was fantastic having native compatibility in pCARS but it soon became apparent that Sony were actively cockblocking support going forward. The CronusMax Plus provided a quick and easy solution but it was still an unwanted faff every time I wanted to play a racing game. I became more and more pissed off with Sony about this and it ultimately led to me buying a gaming PC without any forced peripheral restrictions and where I could use my existing racing hardware unrestricted. This turned out to be the best sim-racing decision I've ever made. It's a total cliché but I really should have done it years ago. Apart from the obvious performance improvements and more detailed options, the content and improvements that the modding community puts out really opens the games up. And racing in VR is another thing entirely. It genuinely is the Real Effing Deal. Totally incredible.

Yeah, going the PC route is more expensive but the benefits are totally worth it if you are serious about sim racing. Giving the middle finger to Sony for their anti-consumerist bullshittery has just been a nice added bonus.

I just posted this in another thread but I will leave it here as well. Forget the compatibility list. Get a Drivehub. It's made by Collective Minds. The same maker of the cronusmax. I got mine last week and it's pretty impressive. Your wheel will even work in the console menus. Works with both XB1 and PS4.

I'd post a link but this is only my 2nd post so I'm not allowed yet.

Any confirm for T100 support?

Thanks

I have got my copy early and downloaded day 1 patch. T100 does not work. I'm pretty gutted by this considering it worked fine with pcars 1 on the ps4.

Can anyone confirm if it's coming in a patch?

The T100 is not supported or licensed by Sony any more which means that SMS can't support it in PCARS 2 either, I'm afraid.

So how come it worked with perfectly fine and was supported in project cars 1 on the ps4?? Don't want to sound rude but that answer seems like a complete cop out.

Not to mention works with driveclub, dirt 4 and every other racing game on the ps4?

Because the license wasn't removed back then.
If SMS would release another patch for PCARS 1 they would've to remove support for the T100. Same goes for the other games you mentioned.

If I remember correctly it was never licensed for the ps4 officially in the first place but Devs supported it regardless.

Heres the wheel t100 working with gran turismo sport. Now surely if sony blocked it a while back then it wouldn't work on the beta just a few weeks/month back. Unless it has been blocked funnily enough, as this game releases.

It deffo works, I used it. And well... Surely that's all the proof needed if anyone thinks it's made up , a video of someone using the wheel. Along with it being supported on dirt 4 which was released in June.

And here's code masters official wheel list for the ps4: Note dirt was released 3 months ago.

http://blog.codemasters.com/dirt-4/05/dirt-4-faq/

So someone's not telling the truth clearly. If sms decide just not to support it for their own reasons then fair enough but I'll be selling this and buying gt sport instead.

I'm not forking out 200 quid for another wheel when everyone else supports it and although there's maybe not many of us with that wheel I'll not be alone.

I hope I don't come across as being an ass but to get told it doesn't work with ps4 anymore and Sony have blocked access when games in beta (a Sony studio none the less) and released (dirt 4) in the last 3 months support it then somethings not right.


Ohhh and f1 2017 also supports it. Which was released last month.

Will PS3 peripherals such as fighting sticks and steering wheels work with the PS4 system?
Generally speaking, no. However, at launch, users will be able to use these controllers if a specific game title allows it to be used within the game. This decision is upon the game developer and will vary from game to game.

https://blog.eu.playstation.com/2013/10/30/playstation-4-the-ultimate-faq/#sect5



1. Sony clearly said that PS3 steering wheels will only have limited Support on the PS4. This was posted on their Website and accessible to every PS4 owner.

2. We never made any promises that your wheels will be future proof and 100% compatible with any upcoming PS4 game. In fact DriveClub was the first racing game on PS4 and it was never compatible. All owners of a CSW V2 could have known that and we clearly made big warnings on our product page that compatibility depends on the support of the game developer. We were never hiding anything and we did not try to mislead anybody. Please do not blame us if you did not read or believe in the big warnings in the the product description.

4. Official PS4 wheels require a security chip. The only way to get such a chip is to make an agreement with Sony.

https://www.fanatec.com/forum/discussion/187/playstation-compatibility/

So next time, to assure maximum compatibility, buy a wheel that is 100% compatible and supported by the platform you intend to use.

It works, most of the time. I lost all ffb a couple of times last night. A quick trip to the pits sorted it out, not really ideal if I was starting an online race though.

Also, once or twice when loading into a lobby my wheel tried to spin itself all the way around to the right. It happened to my friend on his Fanatec wheel at the exact same time.
This used to happen a fair bit in PCars 1, if you're not sitting in your rig to stop it you could burn out your motor very easily as the game keeps forcing the wheel to keep turning.

I understand that the device isnt explicetly supported by Sony on the platform. Its up to the developer to support, which is even more annoying given it was supported in P Cars 1!! Theres literally no real reason not to use the same code from the first game to make the wheel work.


This decision is upon the game developer and will vary from game to game


.... however it doesnt stop me being very annoyed by the situation given the support for the wheel by other devs on games released within weeks of Project Cars 2. Especially given it was supported on Project cars 1.. on the same platform.

My wheel (Thrustmaster t100) IS compatible with Driveclub, Dirt Rally, Project Cars, Dirt 4, F1 2017, Assetto Corsa and GT Sport on the PS4. How can everyone else support it?

However, the only racing game its NOT compatible with is Project Cars 2. It stinks as the devs have clearly decided to just not bother. Its extremely frustrating and extremely disappointing.

Ohh and Project cars 2 supports the Thrustmaster t500RS which is a PS3 wheel which doesnt have the 'magic chip.' Its BS..blaming it on the security chip. Its up to the devs to support it IF its a ps3 era wheel.

Because Fanatec has been the only one (as far as I know) that was open about the issue, since everyone else seems afraid to speak against Sony.
However, the rules are the same for everyone.
You can go to Sony website and see which wheels have the PS4 security chip, and hence officially supported. Everything else might or might not work, might be or might not be 100% reliable.

Blame Sony for making it hard, as you have to support one by one, instead of how it worked on PS3. And GT Sport has been dropped on latest beta, so don't be surprised if is not supported on the final version either.

I've noticed a similar problem (it sometimes existed in pcars 1 too) where you have to turn off the normal controller, then start the game with the wheel. Once the game has started, you can turn on the normal controller again. This is not good if you forget, eventually find a decent looking online lobby, leave the pitlane and then realise the wheel hasn't been recognised!

Has your wheel tried to spin hard to the right when joining a lobby yet? Watch out for it, it could really damage your wheel if you don't catch it in time.

So I guess this driver is missing currently and needs to be delivered in an upcoming patch for Project CARS 2? Therefore, all T500 users should use the original rim or GT28 until then.

The wheel is not being recognized in game. All other functions work (PS, direction pad) on PS4 homepage and on other games. Please help!

Others have mentioned plugging in only the wheel (tried that), plugging in the wheel after the start (tried that), not plugging in the shifter (tried that) and nothing works!

The only thing I haven't tried is rolling back the 1.03 patch which was mentioned on another board. I don't how to do that with the digital version. Any other ideas?
