GTS fully supports Fanatec CSL Elite Racing Wheel UPDATE

  •   Sorry but you keep not making sense... read yourself before posting please...

    I'm sorry I'm not making sense to you but I'm not confused. When wheel based was released purple mode was for compatibility so we could race older games. The crew, dirt rally, pc1, ect. When GT sport came out with no support we got a firmware update to change  purple mode to emulate the G29 so we all could race on Gt sport till full support was complete. Since that update The crew does not recognize my base any longer. I am just looking for the correct firmware to reinstall so I can play it again since I don't need compatibility mode for Gt sport anymore. The only reason I even mentioned blue mode is because I don't want that mode to be affected, as its been working great for all my new games. you must be confused if you don't think any of the firmware updates affected purple mode because they most definitely did. I will thank you for trying to help though, your the only person who replied.
  • I have the CSL Elite PS4 and the "ClubSport Pedals V3 inverted" with vibration motors on throttle and brake pedal.

    No matter which of your settings I try, the two vibration motors on the pedals are not triggered.

    Is this due to the still incomplete driver for the CSL Elite PS4?
  • Is there any way to calibrate the wheel for GTS like in PC2? In GTS the virtual steering wheel does not turn as much as real life like in PC2. In PC2 when you calibrate it, you do 0 degrees and 90 degrees and the steering feels very accurate. In hairpins, I have my CSL Elite PS4 cranked over 180 degrees and the virtual wheel and steering in GTS are at maybe 90 degrees or less. GTS has been like this since day 1 using G29 mode and I figured this would be fixed with full compatibility but that doesn't seem to be the case. Can't find anything else about it which seems weird. The steering sensitivity setting in the game seems to have little effect. Anyone else experience this?

    You don't have such a configuration tool in GTS. It's a Game design choice, no wheel is accurate with the in game steering wheel because GTS does not support real input virtual wheel animation.
  • Thanks, Maurice. I figured all wheels were affected since it was the same in G29 mode too. The virtual wheel is one thing, but I feel like the steering input is progressively less as well. Way too much steering input required, in other words. Is there any setting in the wheel itself to make it more sensitive since the in game setting has little effect?

    Try a lower steering sensitivity in the tuning menu like 540 or something like that...

    ...Kazunori Yamauchi told me that the implementation is still not completely finished and they will continue to add features and better functionality in future updates.

    I will meet with him very soon so please let me know how you like the implementation now and what improvements related to our wheels you would like to see.

    Is there any progress in sight in terms of revlights and rumble motor support? Maybe with the upcomming V 1.19 next week...? Many thanks!
  • Seams that someone reported that the undestering rattling effect was corrected on GTS with last 1.19 update...

    Please confirm!!! :)
  • Are there any "secrets" or hints to getting more turn-in on the steering? I have tried turning the SEN adjustment up and down and using the AUT setting but I can't seem to get good cornering out of the wheel. Now I know it could be my driving style but I am having a real hard time controlling my cars in the corners.

    Thanks,

    Keith.

    No it's fake news. At least for me the rattling effect it's still there strong and annoying.
  • Yes the rattling effect is still there even after trying the new beta driver. I know it wasn't supposed to address this, but I was hoping it would.

    Keith.
  • I absolutely don't get any "rattling" effect. You guys need to try running your in-game FFB settings higher and your wheel FFB I think.

    Could you please share your settings for the in-game and wheel? I would like to see if there is a major difference between what you and I are using.

    Unfortunately still no enhanced support from PD. Thomas, how about the meeting with Kazunori you mentioned end of March? Any agreement or at least something we can hope for? Many thanks!

    As there is no update from Thomas since March 28th regarding the results of the discussions with PD I would say it makes sense to change the headline of this thread from

    GTS fully supports Fanatec CSL Elite Racing Wheel UPDATE

    to

    GTS partly supports Fanatec CSL Elite Racing Wheel UPDATE

    I totally understand that the entire Fanatec crew seems to be busy with the upcomming PODIUM series release but it would be great to know whether we can expect any Fanatec wheel functionality related improvments in future GTS updates at all.

    It just sounded so promising when Thomas stated 'I will meet with him very soon so please let me know how you like the implementation now and what improvements related to our wheels you would like to see.'.

    Obviously Thomas pays the same attention to this topic like Kazunori does although Thomas said

    'I will meet with him very soon so please let me know how you like the implementation now and what improvements related to our wheels you would like to see.'.

    I would like to see worrking LED's and working rumble motors in GTS. Nothing more than that.

    Hi Thorsten, I am also shocked how slow and unmotivated the Support or implementation of the Basic Features of the CSL Elite is for the PS4 and especially for GTS. It is ridiculous to be honest and for me it is really time to say good bye to console racing, I am fed up with all those limitations on the Ps4, I will get a PC this month.
  • edited July 2018
    The next GTS update is announced and will be released by the end of July. So let's hope we will see at least some improvements in terms of Fanatec support.
  • Don’t know about you guys, but for me it’s much too hot to race, I only drive the boat..

  • Now as these Podium details are announced you might find some time to answer the topics here as well. Many thanks Thomas.

    Dominic, would you please be so kind...?
  • hi guys, i have the csl elite with tp3 pedal set and clutch with a ps4 pro. everithing work for assetto corsa and pc2 but for gt sport is really bad: first of all no surface feelings coming from the wheel (maybe is the game not sending the right feelings) then if you play in ps4 mode you have a very bad rattling when the car understeers and i have noticed that this is not present if you use the compatibility mode. Help please, speak with the guys of poliphony and tell them to implement well you wonderfull wheel. thks
  • GT SPORT HAVE JUST RELEASED UPDATE 1.23. Where are we up to now interms of full PS4 wheel support.
  • RevLights and LED in the Wheel still don't work... Dissapointed  !!!!
  • RevLights and LED in the Wheel still don't work... Dissapointed  !!!!
    They work if set the wheel in compatibility mode (purple light) however FFB gets all messed up, at least for me.. 
  • RevLights and LED in the Wheel still don't work... Dissapointed  !!!!

    I feel the same way, but this is not a Fanatec issue. The issue lies with Polyphony. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me. They are not currently "fully" supporting the wheel. Does it work...yes. Does it work up to it's full potential...no!

    It's at least partly a Fanatec issue as well.

  • I use the DriveHub with my CSL for Xbox One on my PS4 Pro. Everything worked great using Fanatec mode. Then GTS did this last update and I can't use Fanatec mode, only Fanlogic mode, which just emulates Logitechs wheels. How on earth can they screw up a game so bad for players. I might as well buy a G29 and use my CSL for PC use only.

    The last GT Sport update broke the Auto SEN for the CSL Elite unfortunately. You have to set the steering wheel angle manually for each car you want to drive :(

    At this point I have no hope for a full compatibility :
    - rev lights
    - brake pedal rumble (ABS)
    - gas pedal rumble (traction loss)
    - steering wheel rumbles -> this one is really sad since PD seems to master this effect on the T-GT :(

    Now I don't really know what to think about the future PS4 DD wheel. As Fanatec and PD were moving in the same direction for me it was a day one deal but now I'm not so sure. For the price of a DD wheel I want all my little rumble motors to work as expected...

    I hope PD is aware of the SEN problem and I really hope they will correct the Auto SEN for the CSL Elite in the next update. If Thomas is around here perhaps he could forward this info to PD.
  • Yes Richard. I feel it too. We all have got a finger.

    Let's wait and see whether Thomas or Dom will feel responsible to take care of this issue instead of ignoring it...

    I noticed this as well. The Auto SEN is definitely not correct. I set my wheel to 720 and it seemed to be working well in most cars, but yes the Auto SEN worked fine before the latest update. Would definitely be a good idea to tell PD to do more testing with CSL Elite. Even better if they got an English speaking community manager to directly reach out to users and post in forums as well. 

    I will post in the Playstation forum where I have had PD developers respond and fix things in the past for the Auto SENS issue.

  • Tomorrow we can expect Update 1.25. But according to the release notes nothing will be changed in terms of enhanced Fanatec support. So bad...

    I did it as well here at gtplanet.
  • Update after update and still no change. Its a sad day when companies take your money and forget about ya! I feel we have been lied to for months now. Just wish someone would be honest for once. Always tried to support Fanatec and Sony but they are making it very hard to stay optimistic. We may never get full support and it seems the higher ups in both companies could care less.
  • Can you confirm that the 1.25 update did not correct the Auto SEN bug introduced in the 1.23 update ?
  • Confirmed that PD does nt give a s... about Fanatec CSL Elite...

  • What settings do you guys use for GT Sport. I mean on the wheel and in game. I checked out SimRacingGirls video on Fanatec FB, she basicly uses all standard CSL settings except for drift -2. In game she uses 0, 5, 5. 

    Can you please share which settings you guys use?

    This are the Settings that I advise using: (not a fixed setting but variable depending of car and track)

    In Game:
    CSS: 0 to 3 (mostly 1.. and I think it wont have any impact on your driving... as it´s said that it only is important to users using the DS4..)
    FFB Torque:  2 to  4 (mostly 2 to 3) There is a wide spread information that any value above 4 will induce clipping to the CSL Elite...
    FFB Sens: 5 to 10  (mostly 6 to 8) You have to lower the value if you use purple mode...

    Wheel:
    SENS: AUT or variable depending on car  and track  (I try a few laps before deciding and tuning) this was before 1.25 update.... as it looks that Aut is not working any more... you must use different values according to the car driven... Road cars: above 75... GT3, GT2, GT1 bellow 65...
    FF : 100
    SHO: 0 minimum... but sincerely may use it on 100 also... I´m not sure that it will make any difference...
    ABS: 50 (but I think that 0 or 100 will do the same...) - Will be different with Brake Sport Pedals V3 - Mine are the CSL Elite with Brake Mod
    DRI: -5 to 3 (4 and 5 may be used in special conditions)... >0 speeds up turning the wheel... sometimes.. to much.. (depends...)
    FOR: 40 to 80 (depends on the down force and grip of the car you´re using...)
    SPR: 10 minimum... but sincerely may use it on 100 also... I´m not sure that it will make any difference...
    DPR: 100
    BRF: 0 to 30 (I have the brake Mod and above 40 makes hard braking absolutely needed... With this mod, if BRF too high, full braking will not be achieved even using all your weight on the brake pedal...)
    FEI: 30 to 100 (mostly 30 to 50) I think you may raise it to 80 or 100 on Purple mode - I´m not yet sure if with blue mode I should drop it ot 0.. or 10... still testing this... since things have changed a bit with 1.23 version , new Tyre model.. and I´ve been out of GTS for some weeks...
     
    I hope it helps!

  • Thanks for sharing your settings.
  • Thank you very much indeed. Will test these settings tonight.

    According to the release notes this should fix the Auto SEN issue. But I guess still no Rev lights and no throttle rumble.

    My money says "NOPE!" I have given up any and all hope of any updates. Anything now will just be a welcome surprise.

  • Looks like I was wrong. I just installed the new update and the REV lights are now working!

    This is part of the Update´s change Log:
    "6. Controller
     - Compatibility for the Fanatec® CSL Elite (for PS4) rev lights has been added;
     - The frequency and strength of the force feedback vibration when the steering is turned too far have been adjusted."

    What about the "The frequency and strength of the force feedback vibration when the steering is turned too far ajustment/feeling?"

  • What about the "The frequency and strength of the force feedback vibration when the steering is turned too far adjustment/feeling?"



    That particular feeling is still there. At least with the settings/wheel sensitivity I am using at the moment. I'm using 55 right now. I'll try it on Auto and report back.
