Fanatec Driver 440: No more crash and freeze! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
I can confirm that the driver 440 no more crashes/freezes FH5. I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HAPPY!! I've been playing non-stop. I was running driver 439 and it was frustrating me AF.
it wasnt the nvidia drivers after all, it was fanatec drivers causing all the PC/Steam crashes. It wasnt all the third party apps on startup or system trays or windows defender AV.
Hi. how did you manage to install the 440 driver? i found only 439
here: Fanatec Driver 440 for CSL, CSW and Podium WB (all wheels) — Fanatec Forum
the 440 driver is a beta driver, which you can find in the beta driver category on the right. :)
Yeah this is the case but all THOSE months the Fanatec boys in here was telling us that it was Microsoft error and not Fanatec's......what a mess...
Now is working perfectly just by updating the Fanatec driver to 440.....:-)
After telling fanatec for months that rolling back to an an old driver resolved the crashes and them continuing to insist the problem was with the game itself, we have vindication. This should have been solved in the driver sooner and without the denial. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I've just installed 440 as 439 was causing FH5 crashes, but now I have almost zero force feedback or vibrations. GT DD Pro here.
Was going to try 442 however can't find any download for it, maybe it's for special access users only.
Just ignore the above, had to do a clean install (remove old driver, reboot, install new driver, reboot) and it's great now! :)
Found this thread via your video:
So glad I found this! I recently purchased FH5 Premium and installed it via the XBOX app in Windows 10. Right off the bat, the game was randomly freezing on me. I just updated my drivers from 439 to 440 which also updated the firmware on my GT DD PRO wheel base. Will test FH5 later today. Thanks!
