    I'm curious as well. The cm+ didn't work with the latest fw version. Just checked that last weekend. Haven't tested with the DH.

    What is the latest known working version of Fanatec fw for DH?

    The CronusMAX PLUS PS4 Wheel Edition Mode isn't compatible with 299 but the DriveHub works fine.

    For the CronusMAX PLUS the user has to downgrade to the previous version (204).

    DH works fine with CSW 2.0 on version 299.... we recommend that the CSW 2.0 be in PC mode to use its advanced feature..

    There is known PS3 mode issues with recent version of CM f/w... this doesn't effect the DriveHub, it will cause issue for user using CM +... I can't speak to the exact issues, but downgrading you CSW 2.0 to 204 fixed them.


    As for f/w version in the future.... I don't have a crystal ball.. we'll discuss issues with future releases as they a arise

    You install driver 261 to your pc and then when you have connected your wheelbase to computer you just update fw in driver/fanatec options/settings screen which you have opened.

    It updates as well to older fw than to newer direction 'cause driver doesn't care which fw you have, it just flash it if you choose to do that.

    I tride to downgrade my fanatec driver to driver 261 but I'm not able to do this? I'm doing this on a new laptop that I specially bought to upgrade my cronusmax and fanatec gear. I'm totally new to windows10 so I gues I'm just doing something wrong.
    before I was aware of the driver 299 problem I downloaded this. I than removed it to the trash bag and also removed it ou there. I'm trying to install the 261 version but it says I already got a newer version already installed??? When i search the older one on my laptop it doesn't find anything???
    Attachment 4138

    the only link I found with a v261 file was in a old fanatec message: https://www.fanatec.com/eu-en/suppor...details&id=100
    maybe something wrong with this?

    Can someone help me please? Seems like sim racing getting harder to do in time. Driving a real racecar these days seems to be cheaper and easier

    Try uninstalling the existing driver first - should be under Programs in control panel (sorry my win 10 is at home ATM). Then reinstall the older version

    You have to un-install first. Reboot machine, then install 261.
