  • We just signed the agreement with Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC about selling this wheel in the US. Now we need to make new packaging and produce products and get all of that apporved so we are still some time away from shipping it to customers in the US but we will get there.

    I guess this isn't going to be a matter of a couple days either?~X(

    Hi All,

    got a question regarding compatibility with Dirt 4: I've got CSP V1 pedals hooked up to the CSL Elite wheel and so far everything worked fine (in Asset Corsa in PS4 mode, Pcars and Dirt Rally in compatibility mode), but now it seems as if Dirt 4 doesn't recognizes the pedals. Tried everything like rebooting the wheel, switching modes back and forth, switching USB-ports at the console but they're just not working. Neither on track, nor in the calibration screen. BTW: newest driver and firmware is installed.

    Did anyone discover similar problems?
    I had this issue with csp v2 contact support they have a fix for the problem that worked for me it took awhile but they got it sorted.
    They gave me a update but I am not allowed to share it.
    Cheers.
  • Ok ibought new wheel for ps4. When will be some patch / update to base . Now this clunky effect sucks. This is not good and unreal. This is bad things. On PC its all good. On ps4 terrible. Any news ?
  • Hello Thomas!

    Can you confirm the compatibility of CSL Elite with GT SPORT? 
    Recently disappeared from the list of supported games. At GTPlanet.net  I got this information:

    There was one game we couldn’t try the CSL Elite on: Gran Turismo Sport. No, not because the beta ended — Polyphony hadn’t added support for it. Fanatec confirmed with us that it is talking with the Japanese developer about including its SDK. 

    Does the lack of GT Sport on the compatibility list mean that the conversation failed?

    Thanks!

    Para cuando en USA? ya urge tener el CSL en las manos, el G29 es un pedaso de plastico, estoy corriendo Assetto Corsa con el G29 pero ya se viene Project CARS 2, Gran Turismo Sport y F1 2017 mucho que manejar y no creo que el G29 aguante

    Polyphony has our wheel and SDK and is working on implementation. So far they did not release a list of compatible Input devices so nothing is official yet.
  • I have updated my CSL PS4 to FW 297 today and I can no longer switch modes. If I press the mode button it goes to purple (CSW v2 compatibility mode) and I ca hear USB device disconnected sound and then 2 seconds later it goes back to PC mode (red).

    On the previous FW I could just select any mode I want anytime. Some of the games like Forza Apex will only work with the compatibility mode.

    Is it possible to revert the FW? Can I download the FW files manually and select the file during the update process? Load HEX file?
  • also my wheel is not working in pCARS in any mode. I can map it as custom wheel or use the CSWv2 profile but even in the comaptibility mode the wheel report very strange values to the game.

    When I am on full lock (in 360 degree set in profile) the wheel correctly reports 180 degrees during calibration but when I turn the wheel from centre position it immediately goes to some crazy number like 16000 degrees and then keeps decreasing until full lock where it correctly reports 180 degrees.

    This was even before the fw update to 297
  • People, I am totally confused, Please help! 1- If I buy CSL Elite with PS4 (The new one) do I get pedal set in it? 2- If the CSL Elite pedal set is included, do I only buy Loadcell kit seperately? 3-If I buy Loadcell kit, does it come mounted on pedals or do I have to mount it? 4- Are Clubsport v3 pedals better to justify money difference? 5- If I buy an Xbox One Rim later on, does my wheel become fully compatble with Xbox One also? Thanks a bunch!

    Being in the US I can't answer all your questions. But I can answer some. Number 3: you have to install loadcell kit yourself. Number 4: I believe so but everyone is different. You'll find this to be a reaccuring theme with sim racing gear. Everyone views it by their own standards. Number 5: Yes, if you use a Xboxone rim on the new CSLE PS4 base it does work on the Xbox one and the soon to be released XBOX ONE X.

    Thank you for the help, and it seems from what I've seen so far from reviews that the wheel comes with the pedal set. I'm also curious about shipping lenght and I know that's not an exact science but how long did it take for your product to arrive? From the moment of payment confirmation to deliver? I'm ordering it as soon as I get back home!

    You would need to state your country so others can give you their shipping experiences.

    Hello, I think if you want the pedals, you have to buy the CSL ellite starter pack in the bundles section (519,95€) . If you buy the CSL elite wheel (499,95€) the pedals are not included. That´s what I understand

    Correct, Fanatec wheel bases never come with pedals, you'll have to buy a bundle for that.
  • Hello, I've lost several blog pages ... can anyone tell me if the base will come without wheels? Is it good to wait?
  • The base will come WITH its wheel.

    no wait, it's really good !!

  • The base will come WITH its wheel.

    no wait, it's really good !!

    I already have 2 wheels, which I love !!! I like how CSL is finished but I do not like the asymmetric position of the keys. Would end up in a wardrobe, so I was hoping for a base without rim. To save something, since CSW v2 was supposed to be my investment for ps4.

    But the CSW v2 is not PS4 compatible (officially).
    And tbh the improved CSL Elite P1 PS4 Wheel Rim is a LOT better than the standard P1 rim ;-) The positioning of the buttons is great imo, I can reach almost all buttons without much effort. Also that on the right side they are angled like the PS4 buttons and on the left side around the joystick reminds you quickly what button mapping you have on which button.

    Agreed. The new rim is easily a everyday rim choice. It doesn't have the better quick release but once it's attached it's not really a issue.
  • Should we be hopeful that this will be available in North America in time for the September 22 release of pCars 2?

    Thanks for spammy response, but I think most people are interested in this wheels features and not just PS4 compatibility.

    This sounds like the perfect wheel for me, but I don't even have a PS4.
  • Just pre-ordered nascar Heat 2! hope it supports this wheel base or I'll have another game I cant play.

  • Hi Thomas, you wrote 'Polyphony has our wheel and SDK and is working on implementation. So far they did not release a list of compatible Input devices so nothing is official yet.' But looking to your product description which says '... Enables advanced functionality with select upcoming compatible games, including GT Sport.' everything seems to be clear and official in terms of GTsport compatibility with the new PS4 wheel. So I guess you can imagine that the GTsport player are a bit confused because of your statement. Cheers, Rinki
  • Hi there, my only one concern about this new wheel and the one I am waiting to make my change from my oldest G25 with the almighty Cronusmax Plus (good solution for those guy like me were waiting for something from Fanatec) is with the games supports for me the most importan part will we have the same response in upgrades or we going to be seconds like the wheel release? And another one, will the new CLS like price wheel is a some replica like the awesome BMW GT2?

    Regards,

    Regards,
    just upgrade to whatever fanatec wheel you desire, and upgrade to the new cronusmax drivehub LOL... so sick of being dicked around by console makers and bull licensing ordeals that do nothing but screw consumers into having a closet full of the same accessories that only work on one product... I can see game controllers only being exclusive... but having to buy multiple 500+ dollar wheels because you want to enjoy ps4 and xbox racing games... pure hogwash! Call me spammy or whatever, I've given fanatec THOUSANDS of dollars, and have convinced many  people to buy their products!
  • I was waiting for the Playstation CLS in order to get the updated wheel and base. But it'll only get used on a PC.  Now they've come out with an updated PC/Xbox wheel.  But still no sign of the updated wheel base.  They also came out with a new bundle for the PC/Xbox with the new wheel but the fancier wheel base from the CSW.  But the price is too high for me, plus the fact that the wheel base doesn't come standard with a table clamp. It'll be well over $700 with the Fanatec table Clamp.  No Thank You
  • Well Fanatec said will be a good idea wait the CLS PS4 and news wheels they gonna have before the PC2 launch in september 22 and if the new P1 Elite is and example of the quality I think is a good idea too. So have a little patience.

    Do you know if the wheel base will support next gen "PS5"? i'm scared to invest my money for a product that will be no longer supported in 1 or 2 years. 

    Thanks

    Nobody knows, as that is completely up to Sony to decide.
  • Have your PS4 wheel plus bought the F1 wheel and V3 pedals. Just received my PS4 F1 2017 and can't get either wheel or pedals working despite it being connected to my PS4 Pro and working perfectly with Project Cars.

    Have followed the steps and went through the F1 2017 pages:
    GAME OPTIONS - SETTINGS - CUSTOMISE CONTROLS - CONTROL SCHEMES

    Found an on screen Youtube video than shows a comprehensive list of all the wheels the game supports which can then be scrolled through and edited.

    THATS FINE - only my CONTROL SCHEMES PAGEjust  shows DUAL SHOCK 4 WIRELESS CONTROLLER PRESET 1 AND PRESET 2,
    NO WHEEL LISTINGS

    Codemasters emailed back to say that I may have to manually set up each individual action and then save ( press X wait for awaiting input message to appear and then press the appropriate control such as pedal. accelerator etc but nothing is registering )

    Have Fanatic tried setting up a ps4 wheel with this game and how do I configure it. I thought it would simply be a case of plugging the wheel into the ps4 and it would be supported automatically OR IS MY GAME DISK FAULTY?

    Advice appreciated please.

    Thanks

  • Gents, After a few months with my new wheel, it is still not working on assetto corsa. Fanatec doesn't care about my problem, and they stopped respond me weeks ago. I tried everything but I am desesperate about this wheel because it is not even recognized in assetto... Does anyone can help me?

    What was the last answer you got from Fanatex Support? Saying that they do not care is not true, but if a game does not recognize your controller on PS4 while another game does, it means that your wheel works fine and the game is the problem. This is not for Fanatec to solve, but for the maker of the game, i.e. Kunos.
  • just received my new wheels today , done the firmware update and everything else ................... , and I can't do nothing !!!

    Asseto Corsa : everything work ....except the pedals ( clubsport V1.0) , no ingame menu for calibrate or activate it

    Project Cars : wheels not recognized by the game ..... stopped at the start menu ( press X to start !!! ) and all games updates done !!

    Dirt Rally : everything works .....except the force feedback

    for now , I think I just bought a very expensive PS4 pad

    The CSL Elite PS4 did not exist when those games were made and published. Hence, they won't support the wheel and all its features until support is added, or you use for example the CSW v2 profile in those games (but I don't know how flexible console games are in that respect).

    For the AC problem: Do you have your pedals connected to the correct PEDAL port on the wheel base? Also did you checked if the connection of the PS/2 cable on the pedal socket is fine? PS/2 has the disadvantage that the connection can be lost very quickly, hence the upgrade to RJ12 on newer pedals. PS/2 to RJ12 cable is necessary for this.

    For Project CARS and Dirt Rally: This sounds like you started the game in PS4 mode (blue LED). Those games must be started with the CSW V2 Compatibility mode (pruple LED) which can be toggled via the MODE button.
    Please try again with the wheel base in Compatibility mode and select CSW V2 preset in the games.

    for Project Cars ans Dirt , since my post , I found in a post a few pages ago the tips for "compatibility mode" , so that's ok now ;-)


    for Asseto Corsa , yes the pedals are connected to the right port and work fine on other games , it's just with AC that they just do nothing ( no gas , no broke , no clutch ..... , nothing :-( )
    I check all the connection and everything is ok

    well then it's an issue with Assetto Corsa. Please post the issue in the official Assetto Corsa Console Forum so Kunos can hopefully fix that iwth a future patch. I only have CSP v3i and CSL Elite pedals and both are working fine with AC on the PS4, could be possible that Kunos didnt implemented proper support for CSP v1?! Dont know for sure. But as they work in other games there is at least no hardware problem with your new wheel base.

    Hi
    I found that the f1 rim wouldnt work either but figured out a work around. I think the problem is that because the f1 rim does not have a 'PS' button you cannot sign in to your playstation 4 profile with the f1 rim. What I do is put the ps4 elite rim on the base first, turn on the ps4 then turn on the wheel. If it doesn't sign in to your profile automatically then press the 'PS' button on the elite rim. Now remove the elite rim and put the f1 rim on. Start f1 2017 and all should be good. I don't know if there is a better way to do it but this works for me.

    new tests this evening

    Asseto Corsa , Project Cars and Dirt Rally : Clubsport pedals V1.0 doesnt work at all ( PS4 mode for AC and Compatibility mode for the others )

    Sebastien Loeb Rally : pedals work , but theres a lot of troubleshooting in the base and the wheel so I stop my test quickly ...

    The Crew : perfect , everything work perfectly ........... too bad that's only the arcade game who work fine and not the simulation ... !!!

    for all these games (except Asseto corsa ) , the clubsport pedals V1.0 work perfectly when it was on my Clubsport wheelbase V2.0 !!!!
  • David,press the d-pad button down, it is the "ps"button.
