I recently got a Fanatec wheel, which unfortunately is giving me some headaches.
It's the Porsche 911 Carrera wheel, but for some reason I can't use it properly in Race 07 (haven't tried other games). I will try to describe the problem as best as possible. I'm using drivers 115.
Autocenter spring: YES
Wheel angle: 240º
Dampening strength: 100%
Combined pedals: NO
When I plug the UBS and turn the wheel on, after the calibration is complete, the wheel will automatically return to the centre if I turn it either to the left or the right.
As soon as I start Race 07, the wheel will have two very different behaviours, but I don't know what's causing each one.
1. The wheel won't return to the centre automatically anymore, even if I'm just in the menu. I can feel when I reach the 240º degrees limit, the wheel will shake and rumble, and it takes a lot of force to make it go past the 240º.
2. The wheel will return to the centre automatically, whether I'm in the menu or driving. I cannot feel anymore when I reach the 240 degrees limit, the wheel will not shake/rumble, and it doesn't take any more force to go past 240º. It's the same.
These two behaviours happen whenever I go to the controls in Race 07. Even if I don't change a thing, the wheel will assume one of the two behaviours above. I honestly can't understand this and it is driving me mad! I want the wheel to return to the centre, but I also want to feel when I reach the 240º degrees limit. Also, the FFB seems to be much different. Stronger and more precise in 2, looser in 1.
If anybody has a suggestion about this problem, I would appreciate. I don't know where to download other drivers, tbh, Fanatec's website is a complete mess, and I also don't know where to get another firmware in case this is a firmware problem.
