Help with Logitech profiler used with Fanatec CSR wheel

Discussion in 'F1 2013 - The Game' started by I8maus5I, Dec 2, 2013.

  1. Hi guys,

    I need Some help with my csr wheel...
    I got the logitech driver installed for my csr wheel and it worked great. But I wanted some sharper steering so I made some changes in my profiler.. I also turned vsync on( don't know if this is case)did some laps and no problem. Turned of my PC when to bed. Today when I did my first laps. All my wheel settings are messed up... I have to turn my wheel all most 360degrees for a decent turn in. And the wheel doesn't lock at 270. When I press start and pause the game. The wheel locks at 270. So I made some changes but the problem is still there.do I have to restart my PC if I make changes in my profiler? And which options do check or uncheck. I found these settings here http://www.racedepartment.com/forum/threads/f1-2013-logitech-g25-wheel-settings.75194/
    Are these settings the way to go. Because I think my game overwrites my profiler settings.. Thx..

    Sorry, but I am confused.

    Why are trying to use a Logitech Profiler with a Fanantec CSR wheel?

    I would doubt that the Logitech profiling software would even open to enable you to make any adjustments, when the wheel you have connected is not a Logitech product.

    All the tuning (settings) of the CSR wheel are done on the wheel via the buttons and the little LCD display on the wheel.

    I don't know what addionional software Fanantec supply to their users, but whatever they do, it should be available here :-


    CSR Forza drivers can be downloaded here, if your wheel is the one pictured below :-



    The CSR Elite wheel drivers are here (picture below) :-

  3. Because it works.. You can set your wheel in ps3 mode and a PC recognize it as an g25 wheel. It works but I did some setting changes and now if don't know witch settings causing this problem.

    I use a Logitech profiler cause it has a lot more options. With the fanatec driver I can only do some calebrate things and with the Logitech driver I can change more options. Even codemasters advices you to change your Logitech driver to 270degrees for a csr wheel.. Check notes PC users... http://www.racedepartment.com/forum/threads/fanatec-recommended-wheel-settings.75169/#post-1533694

    To me even if the Logitech profiler 'thinks' you have a G25, you clearly don't have a G25, so why would you think it will adjust the wheel correctly?

    Have you read the CRS manual, it can do many things, and has plenty of settings?

    Page 21 to 24 of the manual ... available at the download pages above.

    Maybe someone else can jump in here ........ as this sounds like something that shouldn't work, and shouldn't be expected to work. After all, the profiler 'thinks' it's a G25, but I assume the game would see it as CSR wheel. Problems are to be expected in this scenario surely ..... :O_o:
  5. No it really works. And it should not be a problem.. As I mentioned in my first post. I used this driver 4 hours and did multiple races. Career and gp..It is no problem to use the Logitech driver. I Found this on multiple forums.

    As for the fanatec settings on wheel. You can change FFB strength. But with the Logitech driver. I can change a lot more. And this just the ffb as an example. Because there is
    more you can change

    The reason I installed this driver was because of the ffb on csr with f1 2013. I read a lot comments the Logitech driver gives better response...
    Are you using the fanatec driver and playing f12013 on PC?

    No I am using the Logitech profiler with a Logitech G27 wheel.

    The trouble is that you say that the Logitech profiler has more settings, but looking at the CSR manual I see settings that would have the equivalent of the Logitech, with perhaps a different name used to describe the setting.

    It is hard to properly help someone who is not using the correct software that matches his hardware. Even though you do say it works, and that you have that as good info from other forums, however you DO have a problem

    Your wheel is not working correctly and settings are not saving. You cannot tell whether that is a hardware problem or a software problem, because you are using the wrong software.

    To me you really need to test your wheel with correct software designed for your wheel. If everything works correctly with the proper software, then you know that the Logitech software should not be used. If there is no change, then it's a hardware (or driver) issue with the wheel.

    I see these setting for a CSR, what more settings do you need that you think the Logitech gives you? The first setting one quoted below is the rotation setting, from 90 to 900 degrees, and you are currently having problems with your rotation.

    I really would suggest using the default CRS software ........ :)

  7. so now i remeber... i installed the fanatec driver but now i can't race at all. my left shifter is my 'a' button. X buttoin is start button. left shifter is my A button. I can start a race. But after lights go green my car won't accelerate.... Can't find the options to change this in the menus. Do i need to make some changes in the fanatec wheel file?

    I am sorry, I don't know. I have never used a Fanatec wheel.

    All I can do is change the name of this thread, so that the word 'Fanatec' shows up in the forum. Then a Fanatec user might see it and help. At the moment they would see 'Logitech' and probably ignore this thread ..... :)
  9. yes please. change it in help\problem button mapping csr wheel. Or something like that.
    Thx for your help.
  10. I have tried this once before but you have to uninstall the Fanatec driver to "fool" the game. This trick comes in handy on older games that came out before the CSR wheel. Logitech you have to use profiler for settings whereas Fanatec is done on the wheel.
    I found the Fanatec driver felt better but I liked modifying the actionmap on G25 file to my liking so it was kind of give and take. Finally in the end I sold the CSR and bought Porsche 911 GT3 V2 wheel.
    • Like Like x 1
  11. Before I made some changes in the profiler I had no problems with it. But now I can't do anything. Is there an csr expert on this forum. Because when I use the fanatec driver. My button mapping are messed up. Left shifter is a button the x button is my start button
  12. If you switched back to Fanatec driver make sure you are connected via PC mode and you see CSR on the in game controller section
  13. yep my pc sees him. And in my controller settings in f1 he reconize him as a fanatec CSR wheel. So thats no problem. The button mapping is the problem...I found a threat on a other forum. and they think its a (windows)register issue..
  14. Okay, sorry I couldn't help you out

    Thanks for trying. :)

    This is a strange problem, I would never have thought that the Fanatec system was so bad, that using Logitech software could help, or improve the situation.

    I thought @I8maus5I was crazy to try it ;) :whistling:
  16. If you're having problems with button mapping, @Daveo made a great actionmap for the CSR. If you ask him nicely he'll probably send you it :)
    About the profiler, have you uninstalled the Fanatec drivers because they may conflict
  17. Found this one last night. Changed the XML file and it worked! Thx for all the help guys. It took 3hours to get to the wheel right. 20min later my friend walked in And brings back my f1 for Xbox...

    Still got 2 questions..At Xbox when i set sen to 270. The wheel locks at 270. On my PC it doesn't. Is this normal for fanatec on PC?
    And on xbox when I change the profiler. The profiler name is Microsoft wireless racing wheel had this wheel before my fanatec.On PC it's fanatec csr... Do I need to do something about this?

    Must say I'm very happy with this wheel. I really hated codemaster for f1 2012 and 2013. But with this fanatec wheel The game is so much better to play.
    As I was searching this forum for my fanatec wheel problem. I saw allot of mods for this game. Gonna give this a try this weekend. But I never done this before so I think i need some time for it.. I'm going to try the ffb mob. Are there mods you guys would recommend?
