    [PS4] Fanatec hardware discussion thread

    On the GTPlanet forums there is a lot of chat and complaining about the support with the Fanatec wheels, for example, i reads my GT3 RS V2 as the Turbo wheel, also i have a massive deadzone, there are more problems and i will send some of the people to explain theyr problems here. I hope you can resolve the problems really quickly because this is not what i hoped for.

    Things I've noticed on the Fanatec GT2 wheel and CS Elite pedals on PS4

    - GT2 wheel being recognised as the Turbo wheel
    - Run in PC mode is the only way to use the wheel, but then you don't get the playstation buttons light up on the wheel so thats quite annoying bashing your way around
    - If run in PS3 mode, the game freezes / lags until you turn off the wheel
    - MASSIVE dead zone around the steering centre and I can't seem to calibrate in game like on PC(?). I put it in 'Drift 1' on the steering wheel settings and its better, but far from ideal..
    - Force feedback seems just a tad NQR right now. Not enough of it and almost impossible to correct oversteer etc...
    - I've been using the paddles instead of the clutch but i hear others reporting a clutch problem.

    Desperately needs a fix as the game is somewhere between 'frustrating' and 'unplayable' in present state.

    I should note, the graphics etc I'm enjoying! Its just being let down with the wheel compatibility at the moment….

    Thanks for setting up this thread

    Here are a list of the issues I've found so far. PS4 with a Fanatec CSR wheel w/CSR Elite pedals. Boy do I have some issues. I've been noting them down on a piece of paper as I play.

    • Game will not recognise the clutch pedal.

    • Unless you assign a button to the clutch, when you go out on track, the clutch will be engaged (even with auto clutch turned on) so you go nowhere and the engine just revs with no drive (could be solved with fixing the above issue, getting the game to recognise the clutch pedal).

    • If I calibrate the pedals, I loose L2 and R2 functionality in menus, which is kind of crucial for navigating around.

    • (Not sure if this one is wheel specific) - Some of the sliders behave very weird. Some go up in increments of 1, some in 5, and some in 10. Steering config goes up in increments of 5, which is really annoying (who wants a deadzone of either 0 or 5). The difficulty slider only goes up in increments of 10! Whats the point of having difficulty between 0 - 100? Just make it 0 - 10 if its going to be like that?
      Edit: I got a little fed up with the PS4 version and also bought the PC version (even though my PC doesn't run it very well). Using a mouse to adjust the sliders is completely consistent and eliminates all these weird slider issues that you get in the PS4 version. I'm guessing these slider increment issues are caused by using a directional button as opposed to a mouse.

    • Once in a session, how do you scroll the leaderboard with a wheel (on a controller, it seems to be the right thumbstick).
      Very low priority.

    • Below about 10km/h, or when stationary, the FFB in the wheel seems to invert. If you turn it slightly from center, it will CRANK to one side with a tonne of force (when this happened, I wasn't expecting it and it took my thumb with it. I seriously thought I'd broken my thumb. It went with such force). When you pull the wheel back to center and past center in the other direction, it will crank full lock to that direction too. Like I said, its like the FFB becomes inverted (it should be noted I have 0 deadzone).
      Edit: Doesn't seem to be an issue on the PC version so I'm guessing this is some sort of PS4 bug.

    • Not a bug, but a big nice to have... On PS4, with a wheel, obviously you are limited somewhat on buttons real estate, so please, can we not make it required to have the 'handbrake' and the 'look back' buttons bound to buttons? I (and I'm sure most) NEVER use the handbrake, and for the look back button, we have mirrors. Make these buttons optional. I would love to be able to free these 2 buttons up for other things.

    Still finding things as I play, but these are the ones I've found so far. Will update if and when I find more.

    Mine is also being shown as a turbo wheel and I have to adjust the button assignments every time I start the game. I also can't seem to get the FFB to feel right.

    Thanks for the video. I too am having trouble connecting my GT3 RS wheel to my PS4, although I suspect it's because I need the new firmware. Nonetheless, the more people that register their issues, the better chance we have of a fix!

    Yep, Also having the no clutch issue here -
    Ps4
    Fanatec CSR - Latest firmware (updated yesterday)
    Clubsport Pedals

    Lack of strength in the force feedback (may just be a setting needs turning up, haven't played a heap with it)

    Haven't noticed any other issues at this stage

    At least you guys can get your wheel working.

    Have a Porsche 911 GT2 Wheel AU

    Wheel instantly causes game to have extreme lag and be unplayable (Measured framerate of 0.05-0.1 as compared to when played with a controller of 56-58fps (on average)). I was really looking forward to playing this with a wheel, dissapointing seeing as I got the wheel only for this game, and it doesnt work with the exact game I wanted to get it for, hope SMS releases a patch soon or something.

    Contacted fanatec, said it was a problem in SMS side.

    I've tried running the wheel on ps3 mode, and even xbox mode, unresponsive in both, the controls actually work in PC mode.
