    I don't believe anyone was, but I can't see why it wouldn't work as this is still producing all the same signals out of the pedals.

    @DriveHUB your support is not responding to my emails. Is there a possibility for you to ship to Lithuania (I see you ship to Latvia)?
    GIMX is working fine for me but extra fanatec support intrigues me.

    as of right now, no..
    Work was directed at mainstream devices for obvious reasons.

    Worldwide shipping is available from the CronusMAX store: http://shop.cronusmax.com/drivehub.html

    Lithuania has now been added as a shipping option

    With my order basically being placed this morning, I'm probably looking at a delivery during the first full week of September. It would be nice if it comes sooner though, but I most likely got to wait. Heck. They probably aren't going to process my order until tomorrow anyways. After that, I'm waiting on that big, slow brown... Truck?

    LOL.

    I will buy it if I see it working in a video with a G25 on the ps4. So if anyone has that configuration, please share your experiences.

    the DriveHub can and does do exactly that.. User can take their favorite wheel, pedals, shifter and handbrake and merge them all into one virtual device..

    DriveHub doesn't remap buttons, simply because a lot of the games tested already allow you to do that internally, and it was not deemed a priority in the development phase... If it were to become apparent that users wanted it, we can reconsider it in the future...

    This is something that was mentioned a few times in the beta testing. Although it sounds like a useful feature, it was wasn't pursued to 2 reasons.
    1. as with the button mapping, this is already catered for in most of the games..
    2. its not technically possible, more and more of the games don't send multiple effect the way the used to... more recent titles have their own physics engine and work out the wheel force directly and apply 1 force to the wheel. In the "olden days" the game would send Spring, Damper, Force, rumbles etc etc.... I imagine it got too difficult to deal with all the different wheels and varied performance across the range of possible effect...
    My point being there is no way to extract the individual forces, adjust them and put them back in.

    DriveHub doesn't currently have a PS3 mode, it was deemed a priority in the development phase to concentrate on the current consoles... If it were to become apparent that users wanted it, we can reconsider it in the future...

    FYI you can already do this with the CronusMAX PLUS if you want to get an idea of how it will work with the Drive Hub. There's plenty of videos on YouTube. Here's one we did ourselves last Summer using a G27 when announcing the PS4 Wheel Edition Feature:



    Here's a few from other users I found on Youtube:







    Hope that helps :)

    As soon as the stock arrives EVERYONE'S order will be processed and shipped within a couple of days.

    I am very happy to see that the G27 (and thus also the G25) work with previous Chronomax components. Thing is, I don't have a ps4 yet. I am running Assetto Corsa and Dirt Rally on my thinkpad with the G25.

    Once the first customer experiences are solid, I will get the ps4 and the drivehub.

    Kudos for consumers with older wheels, however I'm quite skeptical that licensed wheel manufacturers won't pressure the console manufacturers to release firmware to block this.

    From my perspective. If the Drive Hub works, and a comparison between an older wheel and a new wheel proves that the new wheels are a notable improvement; then I am sure a lot of people with older wheel will want to upgrade. They would have a more legitimate reason than, the platform holders forcing them to upgrade if they want a wheel.

    For example, if the FFB detail is much improved on a G29/G920 over a G25, then upgrading from a G25/G27 to the licenced wheels just became desirable. And that would be a more compelling reason than being forced to "get it; or else, nothing!"

    Preventing this from working would be a mistake. It would probably take a lot of effort to block, and would most likely cause issues with licensed wheels at some point. And the end result would be to anger some potential customers who may get a licensed wheel, but will definitely buy racing games on the console.

    I am very tempted to purchase this, but I'll wait and hope for PS3 and PS2 support, as I love playing some retro racing games.

    If Sony blocks this, then GT Sport's FIA championship thing will be a dud. There simply won't be enough people with wheels. GT Academy worked because you had Logitech, Fanatec (G27 mode) and Thrustmaster support.

    I've a G27 fully working with a RPI and GIMX, but I would like to see how G27 works with XONE. If it works same way GIMX does I'll buy the drivehub.

    I hope someone could try and give some impressions.

    Regards

    I recently purchased an xbox one S since they are getting so cheap ahead of the xbox one x sales. Now I see that Forza 5 is free with gold next month. Since I have a T300 for my ps4, this device is looking pretty interesting.

    @DriveHUB Weirdly, I'm not able to get a quote for my adress in Quebec, Canada. I was able to get one before, but your website doesn't find a shipping solution anymore. Any way to look into that? :)

    This has been thoroughly debated on GTP for a very long time since PS4 came out. I think most of those who were pissed off with incompatible Logitech wheels have either bought a new one or completely moved on.

    I think you underestimated the amount of people with PS4 wheels. And more importantly with the imminent launch of new wheels by Thrustmaster for PS4 and XBox One, they will be very active getting Drive Hub blocked to ensure that their sales and investments are protected.

    Anyway, good luck for those that are looking to revive their old wheels.

    It's reasonable to guess that they might do this, as like you said they may lose potential sales otherwise.


    It's not reasonable to merely assume that they "will" be doing this, seeing as there's no actual evidence on how Thrustmaster (or any of the other licensed wheel manufacturers) feel about it. Anyway, if you'd read what @DriveHUB wrote on page three of this thread you'd quickly realize Sony won't be able to block it anyway.

    So I have a fanatec CSWv2 setup with
    1. Clubsport F1 Rim
    2. BMW GT2 Rim
    3. CSL Elite Steering Wheel P1
    Should I get rid of #3 if I plan to buy one of these adapters for use on the XB1X?

    Mad1723,

    The Competition package seems like one hell of a deal. Will you be getting the CSL Loadcell for the CSL-Elite pedals, or is that going to happen later?

    If you already have a P1 rim, then you don't need the drivehub. If you want to use all of the above for the PS4 or you can't stand the P1 rim, then yes. Sell it and get the adapter.

    I got the load cell upgrade with it. Couldn't pass it up, considering it's a must have.

    My first load cell brake pedal, can't wait to try it out. G27 to T300 to CSW V2.5. All thanks to this nice little dongle that will let me use it wherever I want!

    Can anyone confirm this definitely already works with every racing game on PS4 that supports wheels? Only asking because I have been using GIMX in the past to make my CSR work, and although my wheel has been out of action for a couple of months now (waiting on parts to fix it), it should be back up and running fairly soon, and I'm not looking forward to setting GIMX up again (old laptop died, got a new one, so I'd have to download and set up GIMX again from scratch).

    If this adaptor already works with every wheel compatible PS4 racing game, then I'll buy it, simply for the ease of use compared to GIMX.
