Latest questions

I am having difficulty setting up my Podium DD1 F1 Wheel , Fanatec Clubsport Pedals and Shifter on Assetto Corsa . I can get it to drive but the FFB is not there . I have used a number of different settings and no joy .. If anyone has a solution would be much appreciated .. I have also downloaded Content Manager (Premium) as well .. That made things more difficult .. I'm sure there is a solution .. Cheers
Hi @Marty0363, I'm not completely clear on what you mean by 'the FFB is not there'. If you mean it literally has no FFB, but you are getting FFB through the FFB test button in the Fanatec Control Panel or in other games, then it must be a an AC-specific problem and there could be many different explanations for that. If you are getting FFB, but you mean you can't get it to feel or behave in the way you want, then I can give you some suggestions on what to adjust, but first I will need to know what your current in-game AND Tuning Menu settings are, and I need to understand what you don't like about the FFB. Please describe it in as much detail as possible.

Thanks for the reply DomB .

I needed to Update the drivers to current and more importantly I was using Fanatec controls and updating on my laptop which when I used the desktop was not in sync .

So after putting the controls on the Desktop I got FFB in full .. Reason I was doing this was I was only using AC on PS4 . A lesson I learned among many since entering the sim world thru Fanatec ..

Thank you for the reply but I think I nutted it out and now have CM , Sol and patch up and working really well .. Cheers Mate ...
