Fanatec compatibility to Logitech and Thrustmaster hardware

We are often asked if you can use Thrustmaster or Logitech wheels, pedals, shifters or other accessories in combination with Fanatec hardware. In general the devices of different vendors are not compatible to each other. Therefore, you cannot directly connect products from different companies to each other or at least this is not supported.

In former times there have been adapters which might have worked to make such combinations possible but those solutions have not been reliable due to different techniques used in the hardware and different signal tolerances even if similar specs have been used. Fanatec cannot make any statements about third party adapters or similar solutions. We are putting a lot of effort into the goal of having the highest possible intercompatibility in between all our devices, which is not that easy to achieve. For any questions about compatibility we can only direct you to the information given on our product pages or within our FAQs.

 

The statement above is valid for every platform (especially on consoles!) EXCEPT PC...since you can connect multiple, individual USB devices there IF the game/simulation supports that.
This gives you multiple options to combine hardware of different vendors the way you want. Most simulation games on Windows PCs will allow you to use combinations like: Logitech wheel, Thrustmaster shifter and Fanatec pedals for example. Since Fanatec provides USB solutions for more or less every kind of hardware (shifter/handbrake by USB adapter, USB pedals, USB wheels, etc.) the possibilities to build your perfect setup are endless. 

Even if it is very common, please be so kind to make some research on the web or ask the simulation developer if multiple USB devices are supported.

Which driver version should I choose (32 or 64 bit)? WelcheTreiber Version soll ich auswählen (32 oder 64 bit)?

There is a 32 bit and a 64 bit version of a Fanatec driver available. It depends on the "system type" of your PC which of those versions you need to choose. If the system type of your PC has a 32 bit operation system, you need the 32 bit version of the driver. If the system type of your PC has the 64 bit operation system, you will need the 64 bit version.

For finding this information go to the "Control Panel" of your PC -> "System and Security" -> System:

Es gibt eine 32 bit und eine 64 bit Version des Fanatec Treibers. Welche Treiber Version ausgewählt werden muss, hängt von dem jeweiligen "System Typ" des PC´s ab. Wenn Ihr PC ein 32 bit Betriessystem hat, benötigen Sie die 32 bit Version, wenn es ein 64 bit Betriebssystem ist, benötigen Sie die 64 bit Version.

Sie finden diese Information unter "Systemsteuerung" -> "System und Sicherheit" -> "System":

CSL Elite Wheel Base (CSL E WB) force feedback sounds

When using the CSL Elite Wheel base it is possible that the strong motor generates clearly audible force feedback sounds, especially when the game sends beefy and sometimes violent force feedback effects when you are going over curbs or off track. The CSL E WB has an exceptionally strong force feedback motor which generates torques up to 6Nm which is ~40% stronger than average force feedback wheels made from synthetic material. Additionally the "single drive" system has been designed to directly deliver all forces straight to the steering wheel and to your hands which will lead to a higher sound level. A heavy metal unit as the CSW V2 can absorb such violent forces easier but unsurprisingly this comes at a higher cost.

My firmware is up to date and I cannot reflash it

With the new firmware manager, the ‘’Update’’ button will remain grey and not available in case you are having the latest firmware installed on your devices. This of course doesn’t mean that you are still not able to reflash/reinstall the firmware again. To make the option become available again, press the Manual Firmware Update button in the top right corner of the Firmware Manager window:  

 

 

 

This will unlock the firmware update option for each device. You can then proceed and perform the firmware update/reflash on the device you wish:  

 

My steering wheel sensitivity is not matching with the one in game

Every car in every game can have a different steering angle. In order to match your steering angle with the one in the car, you will need to have the Sensitivity setting (in the tuning menu) set to Auto. Then you will need to complete the controller calibration in the game.

 

In case you are still getting a different steering angle on your wheel and in the car in-game, then you will need to check the following:

 

As every game is different, some games require setting the steering angle in the settings. For example, in Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizione, you will need to set the degrees in game and then apply the same setting in the tuning menu. Then all cars will be matching.

 

For Dirt Rally and Dirt Rally 2.0 for example, you will need to perform the calibration in-game, then set the saturation to 63 and set the sensitivity in the tuning menu to 900 degrees in order to get the exact steering lock of the car in-game.

 

In case the steering wheel is not matching still, perform the following:

 

1) Turn your steering wheel to 90 degrees.

 

2) Open the tuning menu and go to the ‘’Sensitivity’’ setting

 

3) Start reducing the sensitivity to a point, where you see the steering wheel on the screen matching the position of your own steering wheel. Turn left and right and all the way until you feel the soft lock and check if the position of the steering wheel on the screen is matching your one.

 

Please know, that some games do not have realistic steering wheel turning animation, therefore it will not be possible to match the steering wheel on the screen with yours.

The wheel base is not turning on

In case the wheel base is not able to power up while the PSU is showing no issues and the LED on it is on, please check the following:

 

  1.  Is the power button clicking properly?
  2.  Do you spot any visible damage on the power port on the wheel base?
  3.  In case there are no hardware issues visible, please try to start the base in bootloader mode. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds while the base is connected to a Windows PC with our driver installed. The firmware update will show up on the screen. Proceed with the update and try to power the base on again.

 

In case the PSU LED is off while the power supply is connected, please check the following:

  1.  Inspect the power supply and cables for any damage. (Make sure the PSU is NOT connected to the electrical network!)
  2.  If there is no visible damage, please try connecting the PSU to a different wall socket.

 

If the power supply LED is not turning on or the troubleshooting above does not help, please reach out to our technical support for further assistance.

Wheel bases not recognised in Steam games

Follow these steps to potentially solve the problem:

  1. Open the Steam application
  2. Select "View"
  3. Select "Settings"
  4. Select "Controller"
  5. In "General Controller Settings", uncheck the checkbox for "Generic Gamepad Configuration Support".

If the issue persists, reinstall the Steam Client.

My wheel is shaking while driving in a straight line, with high speed or when braking (Oscillations). How do I fix this? Ma roue tremble en roulant en ligne droite, à grande vitesse ou au freinage (Oscillations) Mi volante tiembla cuando conduzco en línea recta, con velocidad alta o cuando freno. (Oscilaciones) Mein Lenkrad wackelt beim Geradeausfahren, mit hohen Geschwindigkeiten oder beim Bremsen (Oszillationen). Wie kann ich das beheben?

Such unpleasant effect is often caused by not properly set tuning menu settings.

 

We do expect that players will want to get the most out of their wheel bases, but maxing out all available settings is not the right way to do it. Often this ends up in the car becoming undriveable or the force feedback feeling is not so pleasant.

 

To get a good starting point and settings that will make sure that the base will provide you with proper behaviour, you can check the Fanatec Recommended settings for the game you wish to play. You will find a list of games in our Forum (https://forum.fanatec.com/categories/Fanatec_Forum) under the Racing Games/Simulations. Select your game and you will see the Fanatec Recommended settings page showing on top. Please note that the settings are different for each platform so please take a moment to select the right platform (mentioned in the title).

 

Apply the Fanatec recommended settings, test and see if they suit you. You can then start fine-tuning and get the desired force feedback feeling that will match your driving style perfectly.

Un tel effet désagréable est souvent causé par des paramètres de menu de réglage mal réglés.

 

Nous nous attendons à ce que les joueurs veuillent tirer le meilleur parti de leurs roues, mais maximiser tous les paramètres disponibles n'est pas la bonne façon de le faire. Souvent, cela finit par rendre la voiture incontrôlable ou la sensation de retour de force n'est pas si agréable.

Pour obtenir un bon point de départ et des paramètres qui garantiront que la base vous fournira un comportement approprié, vous pouvez vérifier les paramètres recommandés par Fanatec pour le jeu auquel vous souhaitez jouer. Vous trouverez une liste de jeux dans notre Forum (https://forum.fanatec.com/categories/Fanatec_Forum) sous Racing Games/Simulations. Sélectionnez votre jeu et vous verrez la page des paramètres recommandés par Fanatec s'afficher en haut. Veuillez noter que les paramètres sont différents pour chaque plate-forme, veuillez donc prendre un moment pour sélectionner la bonne plate-forme (mentionnée dans le titre).

Appliquez les paramètres recommandés par Fanatec, testez et voyez s'ils vous conviennent. Vous pouvez ensuite commencer à régler avec précision et obtenir la sensation de retour de force souhaitée qui correspondra parfaitement à votre style de conduite.

Tal efecto desagradable es a menudo causado por no ajustar correctamente la configuración del menú.  


Esperamos que los jugadores quieran sacar el máximo provecho de sus bases de ruedas, pero maximizar todos los ajustes disponibles no es la forma correcta de hacerlo. A menudo esto termina ocasionando que el coche que se vuela  inconducible o que la sensación de retroalimentación de la fuerza (FFB) no sea tan agradable.  

Para tener un buen punto de partida y ajustes que asegurarán que la base le proporcionará un comportamiento adecuado, puede consultar los ajustes recomendados de Fanatec para el juego que desee jugar. Encontrará una lista de juegos en nuestro Foro (https://forum.fanatec.com/categories/Fanatec_Forum) en la sección Juegos de carreras / Simulaciones (Racing Games/ Simulations) . Seleccione su juego y verá la página de configuración recomendada de Fanatec que se muestra en la parte superior.  Por favor tenga en cuenta que las configuraciones son para plataforma, por lo que es recomendable tomarse un momento para seleccionar la plataforma correcta (mencionada en el título).

Aplique los ajustes recomendados de Fanatec, pruebe y compruebe si le convienen. Entonces, puede comenzar a afinar y obtener la sensación de retroalimentación de fuerza (FFB) deseada que coincida perfectamente con su estilo de conducción.

Solch ein unerwünschter Effekt kann oft bei falschen Einstellungen im Tuning Menu entstehen.


Natürlich erwarten wir, dass Nutzer das Meiste aus Ihren Wheel Bases herausholen möchten, alle verfügbaren Einstellungen auf Maximum zu stellen ist allerdings nicht der richtige Weg. Oft führt dies dazu, dass das Fahrzeug nicht mehr fahrbar ist oder das Force Feedback Gefühl nicht so angenehm ist.


Ein guter Anhaltspunkt für die Einstellungen sind die Fanatec Recommended Settings um sicherzustellen, dass sich Ihre Wheel Base ordnungsgemäß und vernünftig verhält. Sie finden dazu eine Liste mit Spielen/Simulationen in unserem Forum (https://forum.fanatec.com/categories/Fanatec_Forum) unter Racing Games/Simulations.

Wählen Sie Ihr Spiel aus und Sie werden die Fanatec Recommended Settings Seite oben auftauchen sehen. Bitte beachten Sie, dass die Einstellungen für jede Plattform variieren, stellen Sie also bitte sicher, dass Sie auch die richtige Plattform gewählt haben (Plattform ist im Titel erwähnt).


Wenden Sie die Fanatec Recommended Settings an und testen Sie, ob Ihnen diese zusagen. Anschließend können Sie das Feintuning angehen um das gewünschte Force Feedback zu erhalten, welches perfekt zu Ihrem Fahrstil passt.

Power LED starts pulsating once the steering wheel is connected and steering wheel is not recognised

In case the Power LED starts pulsating as soon as you attach the steering wheel, please check the following:

 

1) We have to make sure that we have the latest driver package installed and that our firmware is up to date. Please know that our latest steering wheels require the latest driver package and firmware for your base in order to be recognized. To download the driver, please go to the following page: https://fanatec.com/eu-de/driver

 

Once downloaded, please install it and proceed with the firmware updates

 

2) Inspect the pins at the back of the steering wheel as well as the hub of the wheelbase for any damage. (You will probably notice that one of the pins is shorter than the others. This is nothing to worry about. The shorten pin is left like this on purpose). In case you spot any damage, please make sure to reach out to our technical support team.

 

3) Loosen and then moderately retighten the screws located at the back of the steering wheel, around the pins and also the one in the middle.

 

In case none of the steps above help and you still get the pulsating power LED, please reach out to our technical support team. They will be able to assist you further.
