- Fixed issue where BMW GT2 funky switch had ghost inputs to all other buttons. Slight draw back, input can have very short interruptions during long press.
- Fixed high torque not available with some wheels which have a metal QR mounted.
- Fixed FF, FOR, SPR, DPR and FEI not affecting the FFB directly on setting change.
- Fixed NFR getting deactivated after changing wheel base mode.
- Podium wheel base jolts can happen on ITM or analysis screens of the wheel base display. A workaround is to use the default screen with “Fanatec” logo while driving. We are still working on a fix which needs an extensive re-write of the P DD firmware which is why it takes so long.
CSL E WB, CSL E WB 1.1, CSW V1, CSW V2 are currently not shown correctly in the new UI and the old UI has to be used as a workaround until we fix it in the next version. The old UI can get accessed via the "USB Gamecontroller" overview of Windows.(fixed with 428)
