* The wheel has to be set into compatibility mode (engage by long pressing the mode button) to play the game. Set the wheel into this mode at the dashboard of the Playstation 4 and start the game by the controls on the wheel. In yellow mode (*) it might be necessary that you start the game using your gamepad/controller and then confirm the wheel as your input device with a button press at the launch screen of the game. In most cases the game will ask for pressing the "x" Button.

New games should have built our official licensed PS4 SDK into the game to make it possible using standard PS4™ mode (blue LED) directly. The SDK will be provided by Fanatec to every game/simulation developer.

Important I:
Games CAN use our extended features (like display, rev-leds, vibrations, handbrake, etc.) if they are included by the game developers. This does not necessarily mean that all features are present/available in every simulation.

Important II:
This list is only for the "CSL Elite Wheel Base +"
This is the PlayStation™ version of the CSL Elite Wheel Base (and the wheel base featured in the "CSL Elite Racing Wheel - officially licensed for PlayStation™").
Please always install the latest firmware onto the wheel base with use of the PC driver. Additional information can be found in the full manual of the product. Driver and Manual can be found in the download section of the product:

Note: This list is regularly updated. For more information about any title (listed here or otherwise), please use this Contact Form (and select "Product consultation").

* Um das Spiel zu steuern muss das Lenkrad in den Kompatibilitätsmodus (aktiviert durch langes Gedrückthalten des Mode-Knopfes) versetzt werden. Versetzen Sie das Lenkrad in diesen Modus während die Startseite der PlayStation 4 geöffnet ist und starten Sie dann das Spiel mit der Steuerung auf dem Lenkrad. Im gelben Modus (*) könnte es nötig sein, dass Sie das Spiel mit dem Gamepad/Controller starten und dann das Lenkrad als Ihr Eingabegerät durch einen Knopfdruck beim Start des Spiels bestätigen müssen. In den meisten Fällen wird Sie das Spiel auffordern den “x”-Knopf zu drücken.

Neue Spiele sollten unser offiziell lizenziertes PS4 SDK implementiert haben und ermöglichen es den normalen PS4™-Modus (blaue LED) zu benutzen. Das SDK wird allen Spiele- und Simulationsentwicklern von Fanatec zur Verfügung gestellt.

Wichtig I:
Spiele KÖNNEN unsere erweiterten Funktionen (wie Display, Drehzahl-LEDs, Vibrationen, Handbremse usw.) nutzen, wenn es vom Entwickler unterstützt wird. Dies bedeutet nicht zwingend, dass alle diese Funktionen in jeder Simulation verfügbar sind.

Wichtig II:
Diese Liste gilt nur für die "CSL Elite Wheel Base +".
Das ist die PlayStation™ Version der CSL Elite Wheel Base, die auch im CSL Elite Racing Wheel - offiziell lizensiert für PlayStation™ enthalten ist.
Bitte installieren Sie immer die neueste Firmware über die Treiber-Software für PC auf Ihrer Wheel Base. Weitere Informationen können Sie in der Bedienungsanleitung Ihrer Produkte finden. Treiber und Anleitung können Sie auf der Download-Seite Ihres Produktes finden.

Hinweis: Diese Liste wird regelmäßig aktualisiert. Für weitere Informationen über Spiele (die hier gelistet sind, oder auch nicht), benutzen Sie bitte dieses Kontaktformular und wählen Sie "Ich brauche Produktberatung".

 

Can I use other (USB, RJ12, etc.) cables than the original ones? Kann ich anderen Kabel als die mitgelieferten (RJ12, USB, etc.) Kabel verwenden?

In theory you can use any RJ12-RJ12 (6p6c straight) and USB (type A -- type B; USB 1/2.0) cable which has the right connectors on both ends. If you use high quality cables of similar length to the originals, there should be no problem. Please keep in mind that Fanatec cannot guarantee perfect functionality if third-party products are involved even if the combination should work.

Important notes regarding (replacement) cables:

  •    Cables which are significantly longer than the original cables can cause connection issues
  •    Extension cables are often the source of connection issues. Longer high-quality cables are the better option
  •    If your product came with a high-quality ferrite core cable, a replacement cable should be of similar quality

 

Q: Can I purchase replacement "RJ12--RJ12" / "USB A -- USB B" cables from Fanatec?

A: We should be able to offer replacement cables for all recent products. If they are not offered in the webshop, please ask our support team. But alternatively, it is also possible to use similar standard USB/RJ12 high quality cables, which are inexpensive and can be found at most electrical retailers.

 

Grundsätzlich sollten alle standard RJ12--RJ12 (6p6c - straight) und USB (Type A auf Type B; USB 1/2.0) Kabel passen und einwandfrei funktionieren, welche die richtigen Stecker bieten. Sofern hochqualitative Kabel mit ähnlicher Länge verwendet werden, sollte dies kein Problem darstellen. Bitte beachten Sie, dass Fanatec keine uneingeschränkte Garantie auf Funktionalität geben kann, sofern Teile/Produkte von Drittherstellern verwendet werden bzw. involviert sind.

 

Wichtige Anmerkungen zu Ersatzkabeln:

  • Kabel welche (deutlich) länger als die Originalkabel sind, können zu Verbindungsproblemen führen
  • Verlängerungskabel (und Adapterstecker) sind oft die Ursache von mangelhafter Übertragungsqualität der Signale. Längere Kabel wären hier die bessere Option.
  • Wenn ihr Produkt mit einem hochwertigen Kabel inkl. Ferrit-Kern geliefert wurde, sollten sie als Ersatz ein ähnlich hochwertiges Kabel verwenden.


Frage: Kann ich ein (RJ12--RJ12 oder USB A -- USB B) Ersatzkabel von Fanatec kaufen?
Antwort: Wir sollten in der Lage sein für aktuelle Produkte Ersatzkabel zu Verfügung zu stellen. Falls diese im Webshop nicht gelistet sind, fragen sie bitte unser Supportteam danach. Es ist allerdings auch möglich ähnliche Standardkabel in hoher Qualität von anderen Händlern zu erschwinglichen Preisen zu kaufen und zu verwenden.

CSW V2.5 and CSL Elite Base PS4 (new) drift mode explained in detail

Here is a small explanation what has been changed to the Drift Mode of the new ClubSport Wheel Base 2.5 / CSL E WB+ (PS4 version) and which new feature is "hidden" there:

 

CSW V2 / CSL E WB

CSW V2.5 / CSL E WB+ (PS4)

Notes

Standard electric motor damper

DRI OFF

DRI -5

Best for most games/simulations. Feels identical on both wheel bases

Reduced electric motor damper

n.a.

DRI -4 -> DRI -1 (new!)

Can eventually cause problems (oscillations in games which do NOT  support “low drag” wheels)

Electric motor damper turned off

n.a

DRI OFF (new!)

WILL cause problems (oscillations) in games which do NOT support “low drag” (like DD) wheels

“Classic” Fanatec Drift Mode

DRI 1-5

DRI 1-5

Will speed up/accelerate your wheel movements and reduce the dampening – just like power steering

DRI OFF now has NO dampening at all. Works similar to a direct drive wheel which has no mechanical resistance. If there is no FFB effect there will be no force/dampening from the motor and electronics in the wheel. That can cause problems in games if they are not optimized. DRI -5 is the safe setting now (for the CSW V2.5) as it was “OFF” in the CSW V2.

Differences to the CSW V2 / CSL E WB:
At the time the CSW V2 (and original CSL Elite Wheel Base) was developed it was not possible to create a dynamic/variable motor damper into the motor driver. To develop this features we had to design a completely new motor  electronics which is driven by a logical processor and has its own firmware which is programmable/updateable. Since the combination of having NO electronic damper and hardly any mechanical dampening in the (v-belt drive) system causes problems, like wheel oscillations on straights, in most games, using this static electrical damper in the CSW V2 was a MUST. The drift mode helps to keep the effect of this damper as minimal as possible. DRI3 should be a good compromise in most games for the CSW V2 to make the wheel turn easy and freely.

IF oscillations are happening within any game...reduce the DRI value to -5 (CSW V2.5) or to OFF (CSW V2) again.
