    Noticed the other day that the wheel rotation range is never set for selected car. It always stays whatever I entered in wheel controller settings, i.e. 900 deg:

    Device: Thrustmaster TX
    Package: Package 3.TTRS.2016
    Firmware: 50.B9
    Driver: 2.8.99.0

    I'm sure this worked before, because I always needed to change it back to 900 whenever I started iRacing....

    Tested by removing both player.JSON as well as Controller.JSON to start from scratch. Wheel stays at 900 deg entering race.... also reinstalled Thrustmaster driver.

    Any idea? Thrustmaster changed something with the 3.TTRS.2016 package?

    I have exactly the same issue. I also tried to reinstall drivers, but did not help.
    I'm running win10, I read in some older posts people having problems after installing anniversary update, maybe this is the same issue ?

    FWIW, I tested Automobilista. The wheel rotation is set correctly in that title.

    Glad to see others are having the same issue. Having the issue with a TX on Windows 10. Now that you mention it, It did seem to start right around the time of the anniversary update. I've actually upgraded my hardware since then and am on a new install of windows and I am still having the issue. Exactly as described. Works as intended in all other sims with said feature

    Hope you don't mind me jumping in on this but it's possible this is the same thing that OSW users have. Basically have to set the wheel rotation in the driver software to suit the vehicle specific otherwise you just get 900deg or whatever. Be great if it's one update/fix for all these wheels.

    As far as I know for OSW and Bodnar/SimSteering wheels there simply is no API to set the rotation from within rFactor 2 (or any other sim for that matter). Why it's not working on all Thrustmaster wheels I don't know, but please keep reporting this if you run into this issue. We might be able to find a pattern.

    Thanks Marcel, it works in other sims i run, iracing, pcars and AC, not sure how they do it but i leave the MMOS settings at 900 and the wheel gets restricted to a vehicle specific range.

    Thanks Marcel, that would be brilliant. Happy to help if you need any testing and also there is a bunch of clever chaps with the OSW in the hardware thread for OSW settings. I was hoping it might be linked to the same thing as the Thrustmaster, as guess that might have been simpler. Thanks again

    I'm not sure why it's not working for Thrustmaster. Setting the rotation angle is something non-standard, so it turns out that Thrustmaster, Logitech and Fanatec all implemented this extension in a different way. That means we need to add support for every manufacturer.

    I heard Microsoft gave out wrong drivers for Logitech wheels in Windows 10.
    I wonder if everyone here who has this problem has not changed the option to allow/ not allow Windows Update to update device drivers.
    If I was them, I would disable Windows update of drivers.
    Uninstall the Thrustmaster drivers and download and install drivers from the Thrustmaster site.

    I have a T500 RS. F/ware 43. Driver 2.8.29.0. Package 2.TTRS.2015
    Windows 7, Windows update set to do nothing until I want, apparently not possible with Win 10. :confused:
    My wheel rotation stays at whatever the last car was I drove.

    Just wanted to report the same issue with Fanatec CSL Elite, I hope developers will come up with a fix for this wheel base too.

    I love rF2 and am just about to bit the bullet on a new wheel and the cost is significant to me and want to make sure that it will work in the only Sim i really care for ATM .
    A Fanatec CSL Elite with Universal Hub . I know it ain't much to some but to me that is a big expense .
    Could you please tell me if this is a wheel that is or will be working properly now or in the near future ?
    It would be an upgrade from a Fanatec GT2 (been great that's why i'm want to stay with Fanatec) and a the moment works pretty much flawlessly in your Sim but feel that i could have it feel better with the newer tech .
    Please answer because i would like to order ASAP.
    Thanks.

    I'm experiencing the same issue with my Logitech G27.

    It was working before, now its not, not sure is it because I migrated to steam version from non-steam.

    It was working previously even though I was all the while on Windows 10.

    My profiler version 5.10.127

    Logitech G27 Driver version 5.9.129 (right click G27 in Device and Printers, Properties, Hardware tab, Properties, Driver tab) - same as the one on this video


    Really need help on this as too troublesome to manually change rotation setting in profiler everytime I change car in RF2.

    Profiler already set "Allow Game to adjust settings"

    And did you like that?

    For me it is annoying having to open driver settings (T500rs) everytime after quitting rF2 to reset wheel rotation to standard. R3E had the same issue several month ago but S3 was able to fix that. I hope this can be done here too.

    Similar issue with T300RS. But worse. I can't change the rotation at all anymore within rFactor 2. Windows 10.

    I have the feeling this happened after a thrustmaster driver or firmware update (2016_ttrs_4).

    *edit*: uninstalled the t300rs from device manager (human interface devices). Unplugged it and plugged it back in -> driver was reinstalled and everything is fine.
