Firmware 681 for Porsche wheels - UPDATE 3



Here is the latest Firmware for

  • 911 Turbo S
  • 911 Carrera
  • 911 GT3RS V2 

Change log

  • New manual
  • fixed bug in Tuning menu: Values were interfereing
  • NEW Function: "dPr"
    This value changes the damper signal which comes from the game. It is very effective on games with too much damper like WRC. Works in X360 and PS3 mode.
    It is different from the drift mode which changes the overall damper which is independent of the game.


As ususal, this FW is just BETA and you install it on your own risk.

 

UPDATE: If you need to calibrate the center you need to use the same button combo on all the three mentioned wheels.

Go to PC mode. First press the two lower left buttons and then the base button.

Check the PWTS manual if you have problems.

UPDATE 2: Please do NOT use the calibration function of the driver anymore if you have a PWGT3RS V2. This function only works for the V1.

UDATE 3: Added manual for theRF dongle bootloader

I got my Porshe Wheel Turbo

I got my Porshe Wheel Turbo S since 2 years but both with Gt5 and Forza Motorsport 4 I got problems during the race. I got standard pedals and often during the race the car brakes without I push the brake pedals...In other situations I can't accelerate to the max (I suspect that brake is activated in those moments...) all the competitors pass me...I'm frustrated...:-(((
It's very strange. Yesterday I updated the firmware (681) but still I'm in trouble with the problem...Can you kindly help me?
Thanks so much
Best

The same problem is

The same problem is happening in Forza 3 with my standard pedals. I am forced to pull out the pedal cable and restart the race.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, You do make pretty

Hi,

You do make pretty clear that we invested a lot of time to help you. If I stayed on the phone for more than 10 minutes to help you I bet that everybody will understand that this is more than you can expect from a normal support. I am also sure that you know that a firmware update is no guarenteed feature and we cannot put that much effort in a thing which is done by more than hundreds of users by themselves. I also remember your call and I wonder who will not understand that I cannot hold the line and explain you how to install a driver in XP. BUT in fact I even did that!
Seriously this message leaves me just speachless.

GT5 and Wheel Fan Off

GT5 and Wheel Fan Off .

Hello Thomas, we noticed that with the fans off, there are problems of lack of FFB with GT5.
This happens when you turn. For a split second the FFB does not act.
This creates a moment of levity. It does not happen constantly, but it happens.

With the fan to On everything is ok.

I hope to be helpful.

Max and Mose75.

GT3 v2 Used fresh win xp 32

GT3 v2 Used fresh win xp 32 bit image running on mac bootcamp partition.

Once I knew what to expect each step went smoothly. Works great in gt5 and now fixed F1 2010 on ps3. Thanks!

Suggestions to add some additional info to the docs.

- Picture of connected in boot loader mode. Doc show not connected.
- USB driver needed because the pw1 file makes it look like different hardware, so if this is your first fw update you will get the new hardware found message. Browse to USB driver.
- Confirmation of fw version & fans occurs after you grab the wheel during calibration and allow it to return to about 5 degrees of center. Not obvious where to position wheel after stopping it.
- fans status and setting not in manual v3. I think I saw some mention back in some of the comments to this post.

Bricked wheel fix (PWTS) Hey

Bricked wheel fix (PWTS)

Hey everone, I have managed to fix my bricked wheel with fanatc assistance. (Thanks Armin for all your heLp and efforts, you are a STARRRR). It was very frustrating to contact them since I live in Australia and the guys are so busy as well. And it was going to cost me the price of the wheel to ship it and get it back for them to fix it.

The fix is a little bit techy (but u will enjoy it if you like the challenge and fixing things for yourself) and will cost you around $30-$60. I am willing to post a video with step by step instructions and filesif fanatec approves it. (hex files)

I am also willing to fix it for Aussie fanatecs for a cost :)

(Thomas: maybe I can be your australian supprt person if you have a lot of customera in Australia that require support but you guys will help me offcourse ;) )

By the way, I think upgrading my wheel with win7 64bit is the reason of the problem. The firmware upgrade is very fussy and I guess that's why fanatec does not cover it under warranty. (I think fanatec should add a RW flash memorey on board which you can copy the new firmware to by usb and then restart the wheel which will detect the new firmware and install it (would be mad if we can keep different firmware versions), or at least install a usb host port on the wheel and then we can fLash using a usb stick with the new firmeware on it)

How did you fix this? I am

How did you fix this? I am probably techy enough to handle whatever needs doing, if I know what to do. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to receive a response for support in the past 2 months about my issue. I have two of these wheels that were won through a charity auction, in which case I don't have invoice numbers. I seem to be out of luck here and will take any help I can get at this point. Thank you!

My PWTS loses the center

My PWTS loses the center calibration.

I have installed the firmware 681 in 3 different PCs (2 with Vista 32 bits - 1 with Windows 7 32-bit)

I've installed rebooting the PC with MS-Config and enable UPnP Device Host as you have commented on here. Everything else off.
I also disabled the Antivirus (Panda) and Ad-Aware, I've even uninstalled these programs if it interfered with the installation of the firmware.

Vista 32 bit: no problem.
Windows 7 32 bits: error after step 2 and does not complete the installation.

After upgrading the firmware with Vista, my PWTS loses center calibration.

If I turn the wheel to one side, the center would lose about 5 degrees. If I turn to the other side loses about 5 degrees to the other side.
If I turn the steering wheel to one side to the other center is recovered, more or less.

Porsche Property Page, SEN 900º on the wheel.

The center tells me 0º - 1º. (OK)
If I turn full left telemetry tells me 450º. (OK)
If I turn full rigth telemetry tells me 446º. (????)
If I loose a little, and come back to turn full right tells me 441º (????????)and if I go back to the center tells me 8º - 9º.

Now, if I go back to completely turn left again shows me 450º and 0º if I go back center.
But if I turn full right, again tells me 446º.

Can anyone help me?
Should I contact Fanatec Support?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my english.

Hi! I just get my PWGT3 v2

Hi! I just get my PWGT3 v2 wheel. And first thing I notice was a strange vibration (and noise) in wheel blocking position (90, 100, 110, 120... degree). If I pass the blocking point - vibration and noise just vanish, if turn wheel back to it's block piont - vibration is on again!

So point where wheel start it's vibrating is depending on rotation degree option.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iI1MPIxMVDM
And another strange fact - if I turn "Autocentre spring" option ON vibration just vanish! If turn Autocentre spring OFF - here we go again!

So is it mechanic BUG of my wheel or I can fix it somehow? Update FW maybe? Mine current FW is 676.

hello! what do you think the

hello!
what do you think the best firmware, and the most stable and its games for xbox360?
and how do I know which firmware mounts?
thanks a lot!

I know this is a repeated

I know this is a repeated question but I wanted to upgrade to the 681 firmware on my pwts but 1st, I keep reading thru this blog on all the problems after and 2nd..I'm so confused on the proper installation directions. I've already found about 3 different ways and they are all different! What are the proper "simple" steps to upgrading and is it safe?? I have the wheel wobble on GT5 like almost everyone else and don't have all the setting adjustments on my wheel due to old firmware. My wheel was shipped a few weeks ago and honestly, I don't even know what firmware is in it but I know it's not the latest because the tuning options on the wheel are limited. I downloaded the 681 file and unzipped it but there are a few boot loader files, dongle loader files, no detailed instructions on what to select or load first. Please help me as I absolutely love the wheel but hate the driving characteristics on GT5.

http://www.911wheel.de/?q=node/4349 here is the place in which you can download the ultimate version and scompatting it you will find all instructions...important that you must download the fanatec's manual from the factory site and read it.
Kind regards

I have a question regarding

I have a question regarding the 681 firmware issue in Forza 3, some of you reported the FFB to be a lot "less" or numb in lack for a better word.

I updated my PWTS as soon as I got the wheel unpacked and so I wouldn’t really know if there is any difference between firmware versions. Is this something that all users of 681 can verify? Or is it only a handful of people with this issue?

Secondly I have a question for Fanatec to answer, is there any work being done on a new firmware? If so, will this be solved or are you simply not able to confirm the issue at all in your tests?

Thanks in advance

Hallo Habe PWTS seit

Hallo Habe PWTS seit September,und mit einem Windows 7 Laptop kann ich Firmware 681 nicht Downloaden (laut Hotline)
Und Kann "Gran Tourismo 5" Momentan nicht Spielen!!!Die Plattformübergreifende Plug & Play Ability ist also mit Vorsicht zu geniessen!!!Das neue GT2 wird mit aktueller Firmware Ausgeliefert!!!Toll
Ich hab mich für Euer Turbo S Wheel entschieden wegen Xbox und Ps3 Kompabilität,und jetzt kann ich trotzdem nur Xbox zocken...
Ok Polyphony Gran Tourismo haben Fanatec nicht berücksichtigt,darum möcht ich den Schwarzen Peter hier niemandem konkret zuschieben ...aber die Sache nervt.

Warum solltze man denn nicht

Warum solltze man denn nicht GT5 spielen können. Das klappt sogar mit FW 614 einwandfrei wenn man die richtigen settings nimmt

Ok Thomas dann nehm ich s

Ok Thomas dann nehm ich s zurück... hab s heut Abend noch mal Probiert...mit SEN auf off Bzw.900 und DRI auf OFF ist s schon viel besser...aber immer noch nicht perfekt...Das Hin und her schlagen auf Geraden ist jetzt mit Händen an Steuer kontrollierbar...es passiert nur noch wenn ich s loslass.

So ...gestern wieder gt5

So ...gestern wieder gt5 zocken wollen nach zehn min. ist mir die Laune vergangen! Jetzt unterbricht der Dongle ständig...so machts echt kein Spass! Scheiss GT5 Scheiss PS3 hab eh nur zwei Spiele MGS4 & GT5...ansonsten nur ein teurer Blue Ray Player..ich bleib ein Xbox und Forza Fan...da laüft das Pwts wenigstens Perfekt. und nachstes Jahr hol isch mir n PC und fang mal mit den echten Sims an...

27.12.10 Ok nachdem ich mich anfangs echt aufgeregt hab,und jetzt meine 5000 km auf GT5 hab,(Spiele mit Kabel) muss ich zugestehen ich war im Unrecht...Das PWTS laüft einwandfrei auch mit FW660 ...und GT5 ist von den Konsolenspielen in Verbindung mit Fanatec Lenkrad der Hammer.

Windows 7 Users may want to

Windows 7 Users may want to look into this, Copy/Paste below

A new "feature" in Windows 7 has been revealed today, by Ina Fried @ Cnet. Being dubbed "god mode", the "feature" is actually pretty handy for power users.

Although its name suggests perhaps even grander capabilities, Windows enthusiasts are excited over the discovery of a hidden "GodMode" feature that lets users access all of the operating system's control panels from within a single folder.

By creating a new folder in Windows 7 and renaming it with a certain text string at the end, users are able to have a single place to do everything from changing the look of the mouse pointer to making a new hard-drive partition.

The trick is also said to work in Windows Vista, although some are warning that although it works fine in 32-bit versions of Vista, it can cause 64-bit versions of that operating system to crash.

To enter "GodMode," one need only create a new folder and then rename the folder to the following:

GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Once that is done, the folder's icon will change to resemble a control panel and will contain dozens of control options. I'm not sure it's my idea of playing God, but it is a handy way to get to all kinds of controls.
