  • are download link intentionally not available ?.


  • Sorry for the missing link, here it is.
  • This may sound like a silly question but I'll post it anyway. If I install this driver on the CSL Elite for PS4 wheelbase with PS4 wheel, can I change wheel/rims back and forth with no issues, or is this driver only compatible with the Formula V2 rim?

    Keith.
  • Is this beta also for Formula 2018 LE rim?
  • Is this beta also for Formula 2018 LE rim?
    yes as it is a Formula V2 rim.

    Its compatible with every rim EXCEPT the McLaren Rim.
  • Sorry for the missing link, here it is.
    Yhank you , boss Chief :).
  • I assume the plan is to have a driver set that is compatible with all rims? I have the GT3 and the F1 2018 so now have an issue.
  • No issues with the new drivers for me yet  :-bd
  • so i just tried my McLaren GT3 wheel on the PS4 and it appeared to work fine with no apparent issues  (i updated to v324 for the F1 2018 - which is a class piece of hardware BTW)

    I did mention this before with Driver v310, I have the same problem in Driver v311 (see picture) I have rolled back to Driver v292 and these switches work fine again...BTW: The hub I'm using is one of the first ones (NOT for Xbox) I have two hubs and three spare switch boxes that I have tested this with, I don't see anyone else has reported the same problem..Thanks :)

    Hello :)
    Updated to driver v324 wb firmware v587 CSWB 2.5...
    Surprised to still see the above problem, I tested again with driver v292 and all switches work fine, so the problem is not my end.
    Still using the old (Not xbox) hub....It's the middle b box/switch not working, swapped the middle for the third, so that i can have two b boxes
    on the left side.
    thanks

    Can somebody tell me what the different MPS functions mean?

    - Updated UI for showing which MPS function (ENC, CONST, PULSE) is currently active on the Formula V2

    Okay, nevermind I found the explanation in the change log.
  • Received my Limited edition F1 rim, found this driver, installed it and everything is working great except now my McLaren rim is a paperweight. Is this issue going to be resolved quickly? 
  • Works perfect in iRacing, rF2, AC and ACC. In RaceRoom these buttons are not supported: (36+37), (48+49), (34+35), 32, 33
  • seems ok here 2.5 base
  • We suggest to only install this driver when you want to use the Formula V2 Steering Wheel or if you want to give us feedback.

    Does this mean that if I have a P1 wheel and a V2.5 Base on Xbox One that I should NOT load this 324 Driver???
  • I have the CSL Elite wheel and base and it works fine. The only rim which does not work is the McLaren rim.

    Keith.
  • Working much better for me on 2.5 P1 and xbox than 311 did.

    Wait for new drivers. quote: We are working on a new major release (NOT the upcoming driver package which will be released ONLY for the Formula V2) which will bring several new firmwares to bring optimizations across multiple products. We're still working on this release and hope we can publish it early January. 
  • Will the next firmware fix the double shift issue of the Gormula V2??
  • yes i' am having the double shift issue also. i also have a glitch when in contact with a kerb my wheel returns off centre but then corrects it self after i take the next corner this glitch is also present in v311 v312  v314 and now v324 i have no issue with the glitch with v293 so clearly a firmware issue

    Just to know are you using csl elite wheelbase? if so this could be an issue with the base itself, I advice you to contact technical support.
    I had similar  issue and needed to RMA the base.

    Ok,

    Yeah, as a league racer, I hope they sort it out quickly.
  • I'm also having the double shift issue. I thought it was my wheel.

    Sorry guys, we are working on it with our highest effort. Be assured that it is a FW issue. We can reproduce the issue with units that are already verified to be perfect in terms of hardware functionality. 
  • I too am having the double shift/button disconnects. I am on the V324 driver and surprisenly my Macca rim works just fine with it, but the issue seems to be getting worse with my 2018 Limited rim.
