Fixed: Clubsport Formula v2 - ABS / BLI wheel rumble not working on PS4


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Wheel: Clubsport Formula v2, Wheelbase: CSL Elite +, Pedals: CSL Elite LC.

Platform: PS4, Game: F1 2020

My question is to do with the ABS wheel vibration on the Formula v2. For clarity, I am not talking about the Clubsport Pedals.

When starting the PS4, the wheel rumble works when I press the brake (to simulate ABS). As soon as I start F1 2020, it cuts out. Other force feedback seems to be working fine. There is a workaround which sporadically works for me (link below), but why does it not work right away?


I also have Xbox and the ABS vibration on the wheel works perfectly there on F1 2020. Settings wise, I do not drive with ABS, but do use traction control on medium setting for both Xbox and PS (other wheel settings etc are identical across both platforms), so why does it behave differently on each?

Any thoughts/advice? Or anyone else having the same issue?

For anyone else effected, I have managed to find a consistent workaround as detailed below.

Pre-requisites to the process;

  • Do not use the standard PS4 controller at any point throughout the process, only the wheel
  • Make sure suspend game option is enabled in PS4 settings before running the process

Process;

  • Start the PS4 using the PS4 power button, not auto-turn on with the controller
  • Turn the wheel on
  • Using the wheel, log into the PS (if applicable), navigate to and start F1 2020 game
  • Once the game loads, go into the F1 2020 game menu (press any button on the wheel and wait until all connections to CodeMaster servers are made)
  • Long press the PS button on the wheel, navigate to power and put the PS4 into rest mode
  • Turn the wheel off
  • Wait until the PS4 is resting, at least 1 min
  • Turn the wheel back on
  • Turn PS4 back on using the power button on the console
  • You should now be in the game (bypassing the turning off of BLI the game does at the start), with BLI vibrations enabled
  • Enjoy 😎

The whole process takes around 3 minutes. I find my setup disconnects randomly at times, if this happens you have to repeat the process.

The workaround also works on 2021 game 🎉🎉🎉
