Geplaatst op: 2023-11-23T00:00:00 in nieuws

Fanatec lanceerde afgelopen week versie 453 van zijn drivers, daar zat echter een issue in wat voornamelijk problemen opleverde bij games van EA, bij het alt+tab'en uit een game gingen de instellingen van de Fanatec wheelbase verloren. Fanatec is echter vrij snel met de hotfix en nog geen 2 dagen later is versie 454 al weer een feit inclusief bijbehorende Fanalab versie waar ook support voor de nieuwe Clubsport DD wheelbase in is opgenomen.

Known Issues

When entering a game menu while driving it can happen in some games that the FFB effect doesn't get canceled which results in the wheel turning to one side. (this got now fixed for the Podium DD but can still happen on the CSL DD. We will now apply the fix for the CSL DD as well)

Natural friction can start to feel weird after some time of driving. In case you experience issues with NFR, we suggest to turn it OFF for now. (this got now fixed for the Podium DD but can still happen on the CSL DD. We will now apply the fix for the CSL DD as well)

The steering input jump issue was greatly improved so the issue happens a lot less than before. Full fix expected for one of the next versions.
