  1. Replaced one of mine with Omron when I had it. The standard TM switches are not as good.
  2. Third party AV suites and W10 don't play nice. Removing Norton will cure your issue and then you can punt this back to Norton where it belongs. Pick an AV that has a Gaming mode (if you must use third party AV).
  3. More to the point this issue highlights what's currently wrong on the forums. I wanted to make a point. I've resolved the issue (at least I hope) by making a tuning setting in the wheel hardware. I don't understand why the game changes a setting in the Fanatec driver when it doesn't have to. No advice is given other than my hardware works with the game, no clues on setting up for best experience, no driver/firmware information or recommendation, nothing. No advice is posted from other community users. No advice is offered from Codemasters staff. This is being repeated thread after thread.

    F1 2020 crash and black screen

    No problems here (RX580) on W10 1909 and 20.5.1, game version 1.05 (except gameplay bugs) this is a Systems and Connectivity issue.
  6. Lancia? Got a good sound to it.

    Voice Control Unavailable (PC)

    "It looks like you plugged something in the audio jack. Tell me what it was." 😫

    Voice Control Unavailable (PC)

    Developers don't do any testing it appears. Bug repeated year on year with no actual solution. W10 audio is a pain in the butt. Auto detect, wipe-your-ass tomf*ckery. You asked for it by playing dumb. "Are you sure? Y/N" "Really sure? OK/cancel"

    Wheel Calibration Issue

    Remove any custom control schemas. Close the game, delete the hardware_settings_config.xml, verify Steam files. Restart the PC, check the correct calibration in Fanatec software (your driver is outdated - try v365, pretty sure there will be a wheelbase fw update), start the game, check the calibration in the default schema, customise and save if OK.
  10. Bumping is not allowed. However, the Fanatec pedals don't register properly with a controller attached, so remove the controller. Fanatec pedal driver v205 or higher and connecting to USB 2.0 port is recommended (I think you must have an adapter as the CSRs are RJ-12/PS/2? - in which case IDK if the Fanatec driver is needed, check the adapter documentation.)

    Multiplayer Suttering/Freezing. [BUG]

    No patch roadmap?
  12. There is an updated BIOS, it *might* have some changes or available settings. (I say might as it would be unusual for a manufacturer to unhide hidden BIOS options. But Nvidia have seen fit to removed the GPU (PhysX) selector in the newer reference driver, so.... not even sure if the PhysX is really used in DX.... IANAP) Updated user manual (I've perused the English one). The manual doesn't really go beyond this screen and explain the sub-menus but the ►Graphics Configuration is where you might set anything not in the driver.

    PC Forum Championship - Season 2

    I am just not enjoying this game. There is too much to tunes and ERS management on top of basic pace.

    PC Forum Championship - Season 2

    Anything today? Invite me if so.
  15. Bit concerned about the banners. When was the update to Online Services completed? Nothing in the banner post to give a date or time. 1.05 has been on PC for several days yet on my PC it looks like the most urgent post in the world.... If it has been completed, there's sure a lot that's not fixed, even stuff in the patch notes are not fixed. WTAF Codemasters? What IS going on?

    Custom Control Scheme not being accepted

    So did you delete the profiles and make new ones?

    Custom Control Scheme not being accepted

    When you select the default profile and edit do you get the 'Disable' option? Normally creating a custom profile based on the default and you're prompted to save the schema it is automatically enabled and the one you created from is disabled. Try deleing the custom profiles and recreating them from the default. If this doesn't happen, try modifying the default and saving as default, but from memory that option should be greyed out.
  18. Hey Trevor, a dxdiag helps or (even better) the crash dump zip.

    Game crashing in ALL modes

    I don't feel disrespected 🙂 merely highlighting another thread with the same error code. For all of you that have signatures turned off, I don't work for Codemasters, I just try to help people. Some want to be helped, some don't.
  20. Well, I was in a Ranked MP session last night and the wheel controls were working the camera, so you can scratch that as a fix @BarryBL
  21. I didn't tell you to do anything, I thanked you for trying the firmware. You lost nothing and potentially gained undocumented improvements (or cumulative stated improvements since your last firmware). I can see you're struggling to comprehend, but small mercies you can at least read. There is hope for you, don't give up will you? 😄

    Can F1 2020 crash my G29 steering wheel?

    Obviously I got my threads mixed up. Tedious, but I'm tied to the forum with response times, often have different tabs open and clicked on the wrong one. Will remove the comment.
  23. I can accept that Codemasters are at fault. As I pointed out, there are many instances where the first thing that people do is blame the game before even looking at anything else. Steps you've tried, times reproduced - often no steps, no replication. Thank you for updating the firmware, you're welcome. If people did it, we wouldn't need to eliminate it - every time. If people come out with the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" repsonse, this is why you get the fragmentation of reporting, the recurring issues - no they're just at the same point that everyone who had it and resolved it was at when they had it. If we all update together, there will be a tsunami of responses. As it's fractious, then it's fractious in response, fractious in resolution. Tedious for those who fixed the issue to remember back when what the fix was, because we've moved on to different issues. The bug that people are having WAS an issue on PC, it's been FIXED in 1.05 - duplication of the right stick onto the wheel axis and pedals. People on console are reporting this issue, irrespective of wheel. That I can lay with Codemasters - the XBox is pretty much a Windows PC. BUT, console players do not often update firmware, do not restart the console (sleep or snooze) and have a different idea of how and when to connect peripherals. So thanks for your considered response. You don't know me, so don't try to tell me what my views are or paint me as someone I'm not.
  24. Happens on PC, happens on other wheels, happened on all games since F1 2016 at least..... It like the axes are reset. Until you press the pedals or turn the wheel (not sure what the effect is with Pit Assist On as I always turn it Off) the car has no FFB. Been posting the "solution" for four games straight - when coming out of the pit box, turn the wheel lock to lock and press the pedals while still under AI.
