This will take you only some minutes and it could even be done with a Windows Laptop, Win10 Tablet etc.

 

FAQ
Is there something like a video manual / tutorial for the product?

Yes, we prepared short video manual to get you "off the line" as quick and easy as possible. Check out this clip to see the first and most important steps to get started:

 

Issues with Project CARS 2 on PS4?

If you are having an issue playing Project CARS 2 on Playstation 4, please set your Podium Racing Wheel F1 (PS4) to "PS4 comp Mode".

Since there is an issue in pCars 2 detecting the Podium RW PS4 and will not get any software update, we implemented a special compatibility mode. Please use PC driver 334 or newer to update the wheel base firmware. The latest software update (v651+) introduces the "Comp PS4 Mode" which resolves the problem within pCars 2 on PS4. 

Please watch the video manual to see how to update the wheel software and how to engage the Compatibility Mode on PS4:

 

Podium Racing Wheel F1 (DD1 PS4) - PS4 compatibility list

Assetto Corsa
Dirt 4
Dirt Rally 2.0
F1 2017
F1 2018
Gran Turismo® Sport
NASCAR Heat 2
Need for Speed - Payback
Project Cars*
Project Cars2
V-Rally 4
WRC 7


* - The wheel has to be set into compatibility mode ("PS4 comp Mode"), as shown in the video manua, to play the game:
https://youtu.be/8ohOYdqAgGA?t=204

In general, (simulation) racing games need to support PS4 licensed force feedback wheels, to be compatible to the Podium DD1 PS4. It is possible that older PS4 games which are not mentioned on the list, do not properly work in combination with this hardware, since the hardware did not exist when the game was developed and the game is not updated anymore. Game developers will receive the Fanatec PS4 SDK in order to support all Fanatec PS4 wheels as well as all special functions (Rev-Leds, Display, additional vibration motors, Multi-Position-Switches, etc.).

One or two connector pins in the QuickRelease are shorter. Is this normal? Ein oder zwei Pins in dem QuickRelease meines Lenkrades sind kürzer. Ist das normal?
You might realise that one or two of the pins on the Quick Release Connector of rims is shorter. 
This is absolutely normal.
The reason why one or two pins are shorter than the others is because it is a lagging electrical circuit. Which means in detail, this contact only shall be established after all other contacts were connected. The wheel basically will be supplied with electricity first before the electrical circuit will be fully closed. It does not affect the connectivity of the steering wheel.
 
Bei den Lenkrädern sind ein oder zwei Pins im Quick-Release-Mechanismus kürzer als die anderen.
Das is völlig normal und kein Grund zur Sorge.
Der Grund dafür ist ein nacheilender Stromschluss. Der Kontakt soll erst hergestellt werden, wenn alle anderen Kontakte verbunden sind und das Lenkrad schon mit Strom versorgt werden kann. Die Verbindung zwischen Lenkrad und Wheelbase wird dadurch nicht negativ beeinflusst.
 
Using display, vibration and rev LEDs in (more) PC games Utilisation de l'affichage, des vibrations et des rev LED (CSW) dans les jeux PC Wie kann man das Diplay, die Vibrationsmotoren und die "Rev Leds" (nur CSW) in PC Spielen verwenden

EVERY PC game can use extended features (display, vibration, rev LEDs, rev Stripe, etc.) of our Fanatec Wheel products as well as ABS software controlled vibration (CSP pedals) but the game developer has to implement those features. We are rolling out the SDK right now (Okt. 2012)to them and they can implement whatever they want.

CSR, CSRE, GT2, PWTS, GT3V2: Fully supported using firmware 750+
CSW Series: Fully supported (all firmwares)
CSL Series: Fully supported
ClubSport Pedals: Fully Supported

Great example: Codemasters just updated F1 2012 on PC to use the SDK directly without any necessary modifications.


Alternatively you can use Fanaleds or SLIMax Manager to activate these unique features in many games. Both great applications can be downloaded for free:

www.fanaleds.com
http://www.eksimracing.com/getting-started-with-fanatec-hardware-and-slimax-mgr-pro/


-> If a game features native SDK support it will override the use of any 3rd party tool like Fanaleds.

Tous les jeux PC peuvent utiliser les fonctionnalités avancées de nos volants Fanatec (affichage, vibrations, rev LEDs) et les vibrations ABS (pédales CSP) mais les développeurs doivent implémenter ces fonctionnalités dans le jeu. Nous sommes en train d'éditer le SDK (kit de développement logiciel) (Octobre 2012) grâce auquel les développeurs pourront implémenter ce qu’ils désirent. 

CSR, CSRE, GT2, PWTS, GT3V2: Entièrement pris en charge à l'aide du firmware 750 +
CSW: Entièrement pris en charge (tous les firmwares)
 
Un bel exemple: Codemasters vient de mettre à jour F1 2012 sur PC afin d’utiliser directement le SDK sans aucune modification nécessaire.
Sinon, vous pouvez utiliser Fanaleds ou SLIMax Manager pour activer ces fonctionnalités dans de nombreux jeux: www.fanaleds.com // http://www.eksimracing.com/getting-started-with-fanatec-hardware-and-slimax-mgr-pro/
-> Si un jeu dispose du support SDK, il remplacera l'utilisation de tout autre outil comme Fanaleds.
 
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ICoNQXQoEYw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

JEDES PC Spiel kann kann auf die erweiteren Funktionen (Display, Vibration, LEDs) von Fanatec Lenkrädern oder Pedalen (CSP: spielgesteuerte ABS Vibration) zugreifen, sofern der Spieleentwickler diese Funktionen unterstützt. Das notwendige SDK dafür wird bereits an Entwickler verteilt damit diese Funktionen implementiert werden können.

CSR, CSRE, GT2, PWTS, GT3V2: Diese Lenkräder sind kompatibel wenn die Firmware 750+ installiert ist.
CSW: Voll unterstützt! (alle FW Versionen)

Beispiel: Codemasters hat bereits ein Update für F1 2012 auf dem PC veröffentlicht welches diese zusätzlichen Funktionen freischaltet.
Alternativ kann ein kostenloses Programm wie "Fanaleds" oder "SLIMax Manager" verwendet werden um diese Funktionen in vielen anderen Spielen zugänglich zu machen:
www.fanaleds.com // http://www.eksimracing.com/getting-started-with-fanatec-hardware-and-slimax-mgr-pro/
-> Wenn ein Spiel nativ das Fanatec SDK verwendet werden die Signale von Zusatzprogrammen (wie Fanaleds) deaktiviert.

 

 
Why are the Rev-LEDs (and the display) not working on my DD1 PS4 / Podium Racing Wheel F1

Rev-Leds and other Fanatec features need special support from the game which has to be implemented by the game developer. Since the DD1 PS4 (Wheel Base of the Podium Racing Wheel F1 PS4) is brand new, not all games can detect the new product right away. Using the compatibility modes, you should be able to enable and use those extended features also in games which do support those functions, but did not yet implement the DD1 PS4 wheel base:
