    Fanatec has released its new and free Fanalab software package for Windows 10 which allows you to conveniently fine-tune various Fanatec hardware settings.

    The Fanalab software allows for an unlimited number of setups to be saved and automatically loaded on game start. Select different telemetry data for the wheel display, as well as controlling the behavior of RevLEDs and FlagLEDs. Vibration functionality on supported steering wheels and pedals can also be adjusted using game telemetry.
    Features
    • Change Tuning Menu values in the software with a wider overview compared to the wheel displays.
    • Allow the creation of unlimited Tuning Menu presets.
    • Add and adjust dynamic FFB effects driven by car telemetry data: speed-sensitive damper and additional damper for driving in reverse (more features to come, for example front suspension effects, rear traction loss, and Dynamic Force Enhancement).
    • Generate oversteer and understeer wheel rim vibration effects.
    • Add and adjust vibration functionality by using game telemetry to control the rumble motors found in many ClubSport steering wheels and ClubSport Pedals V3 (throttle and brake).
    • Add and adjust display functionality by using game telemetry to show different values on the steering wheel.
    • Change the behavior of the RevLEDs.
    • Use telemetry to control the FlagLEDs in different colors and layouts.
    • Launch games directly from the software.
    • Run in background to detect game launches.
    • Save/Load profiles which contain all the above settings.
    • Assign a profile which will be automatically loaded on game start.
    • Import/export profiles for sharing with others.
    Compatibility:
    Wheel Bases:
    • All Podium Wheel Bases
    • ClubSport Wheel Base V2.5
    • CSL Elite Wheel Base +
    Note: the ClubSport Wheel Base V1/V2 and CSL Elite Wheel Base V1/V1.1 are not fully supported by FanaLab.
    Steering Wheels:
    • All Podium Steering Wheels
    • All ClubSport Steering Wheels
    • All CSL Steering Wheels
    Pedals:
    • All ClubSport pedals
    • All CSL pedals
    Platforms:
    FanaLab is designed for Windows 10 PCs only.

    The required pluging is only installed in the bin32/plugin folder so that it only runs in 32bit

    I've installed the software, updated the drivers to v345, Base Firmware 662, & Wheel Motor Firmware 22.

    But now in rF2 the wheel rotation does not match when set to AUTO in the drivers and Vehicle Set in-game. Seems to be locked at 900 degrees regardless of the fanatec driver settings. Anyone else finding this to be the case for them?

    PCARS2 was fine.
    KartKraft was fine

    I've tried reinstalling the drivers & recreating the CSW controller profile but still seeing that the in game wheel does not turn visually the same rate and I am having to turn the wheel much more to turn the car, indicating that the drivers have the wheel locked at 900 even though it is on AUTO

    Yeah, the LED's dont seem to be working, but the actual wheel base settings do seem to work. I'm noticing a lot less oscillation, and a generally better feel from my CSL Elite.

    How does it work now? The app runs in the background when I start RF2. Then come automatic recommendations for the best settings regarding the FFB?
