    Yes PS4 and to check firmware power on wheel, let it rotate right and left then grab the wheel 1/4 turn from finish then press L3 , R3 , X, O all at the same time. Firmware will be displayed on wheel , along with on or off .Off means temperature controlled fan , on means fan on all the time.

    I know there is a feature on the fanatec gt3 wheel where it vibrates when on the throttle. But I can´t figure out how to activate this? Is this game specific?

    It's one of the in-wheel settings. I havn't tried it in pCARS so I'm not sure if it's game specific

    Is anyone having inconsistencies with FFB on Fanatec CSR wheels since the patch? Or is it just me?

    Does anyone know if the Fanatec BMW M3 GT2 wheelrim will navigate the PS4 menus? I'm assuming not and it would require a DS4, but just wanted to double check. Is Fanatec planning on making a full PS4 wheelrim?

    Same problem Dave. At times the wheel has no FFB and I have to play with the Fx/Fy settings to get some feel back. Played GT6 last night and the FFB is what it should be. Project Cars still not getting it right.

    My guess is that you must have some of the FFB sliders way off...

    I'll tell you this: in PCars my T500RS has come alive. Never knew that it could give so much feeback. And I tried each and every possible setting in GT6 (and in GT5 for that matter).

    While FFB may be different with Fanatec wheels (I'll report back as soon as I have my Fanatec gear) there is still no way the FFB simulation in GT6 is "how it should be"...

    There is a 2gb update, this may make all settings redundant again,

    Well, the 2.0 update has made more than just some settings redundant, my wheel & pedals are redundant!

    For some reason the game thinks my GT2 is now a Turbo S & it doesn't recognise any inputs from my pedals, so my pedals don't work. The wheel can't be calibrated properly either.


    :(
