    No it does it to mine too.

    Have raced 2 races after the school - and it's back in the box.

    The Thrustmaster T500rs wheel support is bugged - it randomly disconnects during a race - and codies are generously stating 'its not on our initial supported hardware list' - even though it was originally...

    Codies forums are bubbling away with T500 owners, but I suspect it will be weeks before I can play it.

    Back to Dirt Rally then eh ?

    Mmm I tried this - got two stages in - just enough to give me confidence lol - and then 'a controller is disconnected' again.

    You can, however, I think, leave the first two FFB sliders at 100, and if you pop the rest to 0, then the disconnects stop, but then you are missing a fair amount of the ffb detail...

    try this fix I found guys......

    Try turning off tyre slip as a ffb configuration..

    i did some testing last night with my t500 on ps4 with only the two top ffb options enabled at 50% (all others off) and it stopped the disconnecting issue... not ideal I know but at least makes the game playable.


    As a side note...when I tried turning on *tyre friction the disconnecting error came back immediately

    What an odd thing to create such havoc

    I've now got all the other sliders at 150 - tyre slip and tyre friction at zero - and have run lots of rally stages now with no further disconnects...

    Feel much better with slidera at 150?

    Noticed your setup is simular to mine. Have u got a handbrake?

    I don't have a separate handbrake, but in Rally I use my Thrustmaster shifter in sequential mode as a handbrake.

    I like the feedback at 150 - much like old Dirt Rally.

    It works after a fashion if you turn one of the parameters down. It doesn't look like it's on their list of priorities - I was fed the usual guff from their twitter - ie it's not a 'officially supported ps4 wheel' blah blah.

    Works fine in the PC version of Dirt 4, so I'm off there.
