    I just downloaded this game. I have a fanatec csr wheel and the game detects it but it has 0 FFB. Any solution to this?

    I use a Thrustmaster TX, I had to enable spring and damper in the TM control panel (100%) then adjust the FFB in APEX. All my other sims I have spring and damper at zero, the FFB is generated by the sim. APEX must handle FFB differently.

    got it working. For some reason I had to put my Fanatec CSR in ps3 mode and then it detects it as a g27. Weird but works good now

    I wonder if that would also work for the CSW V1?
    The V2 is listed but when you select it a message pops about it not recognising it and resets back to default wheel.
    Must admit I can't remember how to put the V1 into PS3 mode as I got this wheel for sim racing on PC only...
    Also not sure it will make any difference as when you try and set up custom it doesn't recognise the pedals
    Then again this could be due to it only accepting a single usb input for controller schemes as read about previously.
    I've got a GTX 1070 now so trying to run in Ultra but there is slowdown every now and then...

    I typically don't use spring and damper in the Thrustmaster control panel - both at 0. Same with in game options, typically don't use spring and damper for my TX wheel. I suggested only giving it a try to see if that would help you. Other than that isolated issue I had a while back with APEX, APEX and Forza 7 demo work fine without spring and damper, as do all my other racing sims.

    That was only for testing - either you or another user said they didn't have any FFB. Normally you don't need any spring or damper. Apparently there was a misunderstanding that I was saying it's needed - it isn't for me, and I'm sure most if not all wheel users.
