    Help with PS4 Wheel Edition Mode and Fanatec

    Hey everyone, just got a CronusMax Plus and downloaded the latest Firmware for it. I put the device into CronusMax PS4 Wheel Edition mode and connected my PS4 controller to slot 4 of my USB Hub (one of the Insignias that is on the recommended list) with my Fanatec CSW V1 Base in slot 1. I put my wheelbase into PS3 mode and then plugged in the CronusMax but all it is giving me is the blinking E saying that the USB device is not supported.

    Is there something simple that I'm missing here which is not allowing it to work? I know with the latest firmware update it has the Famatec CSW V1 Base listed as supported but I'm just not able to get it to work. Any help would be great. Thanks!!

    I'll be getting the new CM hardware soon and have a couple tests planned for the Fanatec CSR and v2 clubsport as well. Let us know if you guys find a solution in the meantime, thanks!

    Tried again with both my fanatec wheels (turbo S, and csr Elite)... on the cronusmax device monitor page where input says g27... Mine rapidly flickers DF and NONE... like RAPIDLY flashing back and forth between both!... tried swapping cables... different usb hubs etc... Suffering major buyers remorse w/ the cronus right now, as this is the sole reason i purchased it!, I'll take a video of it to show exactly what is happening..

    Would you be interested in helping us test a beta firmware which should help solve this problem?

    I'd gladly do anything to help get it working!! I'll even order a 2nd cronusmax for my other wheel once it does! I already ordered some parts to make a few gimx adapters but your product is soo much cleaner and simple.

    I just bought a new CronusMax Plus off Amazon to use with my Fanatec CSR Elite, PS4 and F1 2016. Have I wasted my money, and should I return it before I open the box?

    There is a large market of angry fanatec customers over at their forums that lost ps4 support just waiting to be sold some cronus's!

    I am in the same boat as you.. however it seems these guys are on top of things in getting this working for us, as it is a significant potential market for sales of devices, once this glitch is fixed!, I have confidence that it'll be working!

    Okay, I'm hoping we can get this fixed as I am super pissed already with Sony at removing Fanatec support from F1 and AC, so hopefully Cronus will have me up and playing again as I am literally only moments away from listing my PS4 and games on eBay and forking out £1000 on a 4K Gaming PC.

    Good to know I'm not the only one with this problem and that it's been looked into. And yes, there is a HUGE potential market right now for Fanatec users on PS4 for this product. There are so many pissed off PS4 Fanatec users that are looking at over $1000 in useless hardware right now, that if this gets working you could see plenty of word of mouth sales for Cronus from this community.

    I have the same problem, I followed the instructions closely and watched the video, done everything as it should and the result is that when I connect my cronusmax device it shows the infinite sign going round and when I connect the USB Hub it sees another controler than the DS4 but shows an error (E) message.

    I also am willing to try a Beta. Fanatec CSW V2.

    I have removed the Fanatec info from the press release for now while we dig a little deeper - apologies for that (I was away with family for a few days - only got back last night or I'd have responded sooner).

    In the meantime - we are looking for Beta Testers who own Fanatec wheels (and any other wheels). Please list the wheels you own and also the console(s) that you have if you are interested. This could be fun with something quite exciting

    However If you bought a CM just for the Fanatec wheel support on the back of the news I posted and doesn't want to be involved in any beta testing for the CM or for any potential new dedicated Wheel product, let me know and you can ship your CM to me directly and i'll personally refund you - no harm, no foul.

    Morning! I'm the OP, using a Fanatec CSW 1.5 base with a Clupsport SQ shifter and Clubsport V3 pedals hooked up to the base, trying to use them on a PS4. I'd be happy to beta test any firmware you would like to push out. Thanks!

    Hi. Yes I bought one solely for the Fanatec solution but sounds to me like you'll fix the firmware so happy to wait a little longer Happy to beta test too. I have a CSW v2, CSP v2, CSSQ Shifter using F1 rim and BMW GT rim. I have the CM already and have spent a good few hours trying to make it work. Ready for the beta firmware when you are!

    As I said I would be happy to get involved. CSW V2 / CS Shifter V1.5 / Porsche 918 wheel / Formula Carbon wheel / Pedals CSV3 /CM of course. Everything is less than one year old with all the newest firmware installed. Playing on PS3 / PS4 and PC / Assetto Corsa on PS4 and PC / GT6 / Driveclub if needed on PS4 / Pcars on PS4.

    I bought your device yesterday especially for my Fanatec and would normally like my money back but I am impressed with your response and trust you will come to a solution. Thanks.
