PWTS Firmware 660 released - UPDATE 2



We just released a new frimware for the Porsche 911 Turbo S wheel.

 

Please note that we can only recommend that you install the firmware if you experience problems. Updating the firmware of any device is always a risk if the update is interrupted somehow. Therefore we cannot take responsibility if something goes wrong.

Changes:

  • Improved precision around the center for some wheels (not all wheels were affected)
  • FF and SHO values adjustable in 10% steps


Please note that we recommend to update the RF dongle only if you have any problems. Try first to update only the wheel.

 

PLEASE READ THE MANUAL AND FOLLOW IT!!!

Please let me know your Windows system version here in this blog post in case you made the update with or without success.

 

UPDATE

If you have FF dropouts you must reduce the FF strength to 60. This is as strong as 100% in version 613. (Edit: This turned out to be false information)

We will release a new FW very soon to fix that.

I took off the 660 firmware in the meantime.

UPDATE 2

As we could not verify the issues with the new firmware I decided to upload ver 660 again. I also included the previous ver 614 so you can load the old FW as soon as you have issues and compare.

Just installed the new

Just installed the new firmware successfully using Windows XP 32 bit. I've notice the FF appears much stronger now in forza3. Previous settings were wheel ff 33% nd forz feeddback 100%. Now after the update, ff on the wheel is set to 20% and forza 75%. Nicely done Fanatec.

What mode wheel has to be in

What mode wheel has to be in when you press the xbox button to get wheel to bootloader mode? If i press xbox button after powerin on the wheel in "---" status, whole xbox ring starts to flash and xbox buttons are lit(it tries to connec to xbox). If i press xbox button when wheel is in pc-mode and connected to pc, nothing happens.

Edit: now i get it:) I have to press button before powering on the wheel (there is a typo in readme "than" ->then.)

Edit2: Install went fine with XP 32bit. I tried first with windows 7 64bit but program gave some error i switched to xp. I also update dongle firmware.

Great work guys. Installed
