Question About Thrustmaster 488 Ferrari Challenge Rim With TS-WX base And Advanced mode (Not TS-PC)

So I'm aware this wheel rim is only available officially if you buy the TS-PC Racer that comes with it. However, I acquired the rim online from someone who happened to be selling just that so I figured I'd pick it up for cheapo and use it on my TS-WX since they are basically the same base.

I noticed online that people with the TGT have no issues using it in it's full capacity with the advanced mode button mapping and LED lights, but for me in the USB controller settings the Advanced mode bubble is greyed out as if it's not supported. Is this just how it is or am I missing something here? Why would it work on a TGT but not a TS-WX Racer which is almost exactly the same as the TS-PC.

Thanks

That's probably the issue. The TS-XW uses different firmware which is all up to date. Just dumb that the rim works on some other bases but not the TS-XW which is literally the same :(
