A new patch is live via Steam and should be installed automatically.
The patch addresses the following:
1.- Server lag.
This is the fix that has been running on the ATAG server for a week now.
2.- Driving wheel crashes.
This was identified as a bug on the microsoft side when trying to apply joystick axes force feedback to the wheels. As a workaround this issue, the device is being identified now by any of the following two things:
a.- If the USB device informs windows that it is a "driving" device.
b.- If the device description text contains "wheel" (this is a safety measure in case the device is not properly reported as a "driving device".
If any of those two are true, the device will be skipped when selecting a FF device. Note that there might be wheels out there that do not match any of the two conditions which would make the test fail and the issue to happen.
Besides preventing the crash, this has another advantage. The game picks the first FF device available and assumes it is the joystick. If the wheel is first on the list, by skipping it, the next device should be the joystick and FF should work on it.
EDIT: If you have one, I would like to hear if your wheel issue is now gone and all is working properly.
