FAQ
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.

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.

Oscillation when driving backwards. Is this normal?

Oscillation can be felt when driving in reverse. We are aware of this effect and we are in contact with the game developers in order to improve the feeling and remove the oscillations in question. This is not an issue and will not cause any problems to the product.
