  • I appreciate A LOT to know about what drivers/firmwares change.
    Simple way to improve your customer support !

    Keep up the good work!
  • Thomas...is this the same one since last week ????
    It's messed up. The the rim on a V2 base tends off centre to the left a little during a game!!!
  • I tried loading the new 219 that I downloaded today. To my brand new, never been flashed V2 base. It "seemed" to load okay. But, the Start Firmware Uploader would not complete a flash to the firmware. Device was recognized, but the flash was unsuccessful. I tried about 5-6 times, but the same result. Deleted the driver, re-downloaded it. Same result. And, now the base will not power up. I sent a support request. But this really really sucks. I can't tell you how frustrating this is. The base has been in my game room, unused, since last November. I just got the XBone universal hub this Friday, all assembled, ready yo go. Now this. I can't even take and send screen shots for the support guys, because now no power to the base. Aghhh. 

  • Does your green led shine on the power adapter of the base ?
  • Does your green led shine on the power adapter of the base ?
    Yes, first thing I checked.

  • Got right file to match pc system?
  • Yup, 64 bit 219 from the CSW v2 base page. Can't figure why no power. The bootload start button had only one blue led, not all four. And the led was flashing continuously. After about 5-6 attempts, all power gone. I'll wait for support to advise on a fuse or something. Thanks for trying to help.

    Thomas, I can confirm this. 

    The wheel continually goes off centre in Project Cars. I'd also agree it is about 1/8th or thereabouts to the left. 

    Please confirm you understand this as it's a real game breaker.

    Regards
    Jonathan

    *Edit. My system is the PS4. 
  • Yes Grimey it is. Same as last week. Still the off centre issue.
    I'm gonna try fm5 for a couple a days. PCars is starting to get on my nerves with all the game breakers.....to me.
  • When are you gonna release the new CSL range?

    Bonjour de gros soucis avec la boite de vitesse
    La vitesse 4 passe pas , impossible de passer les rapports , quand je passe la 5 cest la 1 qui passe ...
    Je joue sur PS4 avec Pcars
    avec Clubsport V2 volant F1 /volant BMW
  • In my base V2 all work fine after update this firmware.

    Center the wheel base in game, that shold resolve the problem of the Pcars issues.
  • @ Laurent: J'imagine que tu l'as déjà fait, mais au cas où: Il faut recalibrer le boitier de vitesse avec le volant quand tu installes un nouveau firmware.
  • Nope it doesn't Nuno...Tried over 5 times before I gave up.
  • @ Laurent: J'imagine que tu l'as déjà fait, mais au cas où: Il faut recalibrer le boitier de vitesse avec le volant quand tu installes un nouveau firmware.
    Fait 4 fois ^^, j'ai finalement débrancher le volant du secteur pendant 2h et c'est revenu à la normal, ouf

    Yes since I installed new drivers me shifter doesnt works in H mode, any suggestion?

  • I have Porsche GT3 RS v2 Wheel with g27 pedals that do not work progressively, but only like on/off. Can i expect an improvement? (apparently not after installing this driver)

  • Antonie Goossens,

    Strange, yesterday I made a reset to ffb settings because the update 1.4, adjusted as wanted and everything went back, just centered again the wheel in game and... Voilá
    With this firmware the steering wheel is centered when turn on the wheel and makes routine movement.

    Only a small big detail (PS4 here)
  • Yeah I know it centres...for a while...after a few races it's off centre
  • after doing the last drivers update 219 n firmware 95  (basev1) I can access the ps3 mode anymore?? :(
  • edited June 2015
    If you don't use the XOne hub, go back to driver 205!! 219 is a beta driver so still ni solid and stable one. Unfortunately I have the hub only at the moment..so I need to use it !!!
  • I have no problems with the new driver and FW it works great for me in pCars and FM5, FH2. The only issue I have is no gate shifter support for the CSSSQ on the Xbox One, only sequential mode works, but stays in the last gear selected after an event.
  • @Warren: For PS3 press the "'Select" and "Horn" buttons or the "Select" and "Circle" buttons on your steering wheel for activating PS3 compatibility again, after downloading the new update 219 / firmware 95 on the CSW V1 (as is described in the manual for the CSW V2).
    It took me also some time to find out.

    On the PS4 with Project Cars much better driving experience now, although center spring pulling steering wheel to the left issue, with SPR and DPR at 80-90,  after in game resetting the steering wheel.

    @ Grimney Dog: Many thanks for your research, testing and providing us with your settings info.
    From the very beginning the ABS rumble didn't work through the steering wheel.
    But from the very beginning with Project cars I experience an amazing sensation in my Playseat with 6 bass shakers mounted on it especially with shifting through the gears and braking.
    As if the ABS/brake rumble output is directed through the bass shakers. 
    The game, in combination with next gen console, provides so much information, as sim PC racers are used to experience (?).
    I even have to turn down the output of the amplifier now in comparison with the PS3 playing GT6.
     


  • From the very beginning ABS rumble has worked for me in pCars.
  • Is the new firmware only for pc? I have ps4 ..
  • Is the new firmware only for pc? I have ps4 ..
    It is for the base and hub. Not platform specific. I have Xbox One and it is for that, too.

  • Unfortunately ALL my racing games  (Project Cars, Iracing, live for speed)  show heavy laggs after i updated the new driver / firmware  !!!

    my specs:

    Win7 64 Bit

    Geforce GTX 980   with latest driver
    i7-490k @ 4.00 Ghz
    16 Gb RAM

    Has anybody made the same experiences ???
  • Does anyone know if this fixes the RB/RSB LB/LSB issue on the Xbox One HUB?
  • In PCars the LSB and RSB buttons can be assigned now because of their 1.4 patch. But the LB and RB buttons are also the shiffter paddles, but that's M$ button protocol issue.

    Now that they have the new elite controller, surely we will have more button options on xbox?
  • Dunno..hope so..
  • Post a Link to the New Elite Controler... I Never Heard of it...
  • It was announced on the E3 Grimey...Google it and you'll find it..lazy ... LOL

    The elite controller doesn't have any extra input buttons. It's just a pro grade controller with changeable sticks and buttons
  • im at work... or just busey Tweekin PCars... LOL... Im done Tweekin with PCars... its just Filling a Gap until F1 2015 comes out.
  • You can look and reply here though...LOL
  • Just went back to re-install firmware 205, turned the DPR & SPR on my wheel down (CSP V1) and with the use of the Jack Spader files, Grimney's overhaul and advice of many others on the several forums I've got a great driving experience with Project Cars on the PS4.
    Not perfect yet, but we're getting there. The brake pedal rumble doesn't work, as was mentioned.
    @ Antoine, you were right to advise non-Xbox One (hub) users to install/keep the former firmware until it's all sorted out. Thanks.
     
  • need help !!  my wheel and base are not showing up in the game controller window.... it is a V2 with the Xbox wheel hub ....this is my first attempt at updating firmware so I have no clue if it is the wheel or me that is messing up..... if I plug in the base and hit the start button is stays red and cycles left to right ... over and over ... help !!!  be nice I'm a tech newbie

    I'll check after work, but I was certain that this wasn't a Project Cars issue. Even at the Xbox One dashboard, RSB and LSB navigated the tabs. With a controller, only RB and LB can do this.
  • Joe,
    With the wheel base turned off, and the 219 app open push and hold the wheel base power button. Blue light should come on. You should get a window open on you screen, follow the prompts. This is going off my poor memory, so worst case look it up on YouTube and or follow the manual.
  • @ Kurt ,   thank you for your reply ...  I will  give it a try tomorrow ... for now it's back to my CSR-E and forza 4 until my headache goes away...

    take the xbox hub off the base and then update the firmware. Once firmware is installed then fit the hub.

  • Joe Rugo...I've posted a 'how to update firmware' on the 'xbox one hub shipping' topic....check that one out! After that your hub will work on the XOne.

    I was talking about the PS4 button mapping.

    As I tested the XOne version...After 1.4 patch. Still not improved.
    LB and RB are same as shifter paddles, LT and RT are same as Brake and gas pedals and LSB and RSB aren't assignable because they are the same as LB and RB.

  • Hi Thomas

    Just for inform you, the driver 219 is causing interference in the assetto corsa telemetry, the rev lights in the wheel rim stop to work when i change my car or track, same for my siminstruments dash and android app Hud Dash, all information likes speed, position, laps, fuel, etc works just rev lights not work, back to driver 205 and everything works fine again.
  •   I want to thank all who replied to my cry for help ... although not entirely resolved, progress has been made.. your input allowed me to determine if I was in error or the equipment... So thanks again.

     

  • OK, did I mention I was a tech newbie???  if this should happen to you ..... make sure the pedals are plugged into the slot that says "pedal" not "data"....... duh.....  thanks again
