    @[VUP] Tomas__Vondracek Can you test the private lobbies again please but this time without the wheel plugged in and just using a controller.

    And yeah, by wheel it still crashing...
Guys my bad, it doesn't work for me neither. I didn't noticed that i was creating a private lobby using a controller and that my steering wheel wasn't connected. The moment I connected my T300...a couple seconds later it crashed once again 😕🫤. Don't know what they gain by saying in the patch notes that they fixed this issue tho 🫤

There's another patch coming relatively soon for both platforms but today's patch is to bring the platforms in line. So Compliance and bug fixes
I’ve been trying to create a Prive lobby whole day with the same error on ps5 and the same t300 wheel. Searched whole of the internet and by accident saw this post. This somewhat comforts me that it’s not me but apparently a bug. Let’s hope a patch will solve the issue.

So, anyone able to test if this patch solved the issue for ps5? Cause it doesn’t seem so from the patch notes.

I tried it doesn’t seem to work still. Loaded into a private multiplayer by myself and the trusty T300 and was promptly booted.
