New disappointed Customer - 365 driver freezing and issues with rollback to 346
I really hope someone can offer some advice please as I am rapidly losing confidence in the quality of these "high end" products.
I have had the DD1 and Formula V2 bundle for a couple of weeks now.
Originally i installed the 346 driver and things seemed ok. One day I booted my PC up to find that all of the game profiles in Fanalabs 1.12 were gone so I couldn't set them up for ACC and iracing.
Tried reinstalling several times but no success so I "upgraded" to the 365 drivers and Fanalab 1.23 beta in an effort to resolve the problem and enjoy some of the new features.
After some fiddling with the config I got reasonably happy with the FFB but then the DD1 crashed, no button responses and the wheel spinning continuously until I pulled the cable out. A known issue for several months now I believe.
I tried to replicate the issue again and 4 minutes from the end of a 2 hour race on ACC the same thing happened. The ironic thing is it was right in front of the Podium in-game advertising in ACC.
I have seen other posts related to this saying to go back to 346. The issue I now have is I can't go back to 346 and use Fanalabs as 1.23 doesn't work with the old drivers and I can't load the profiles in 1.12 as outlined above.
I did see a post from the Fanatec website in relation to the 1.12 issue but it was removed so I had to view it via google cache... There was no resolution offered and the staff member simply said it would be fixed in an upcoming release.
I've just spent 2k on something which is proving to be less reliable than my G29.
I would be very grateful if someone could offer some advice as it feels like im stuck between a rock and a hard place with a significantly lighter wallet for my troubles.
I was super excited to get these products but the gloss is rapidly wearing off.
