thanks for your great work! But unfortunately it doesnīt work very good wit rF2, at least on my system.
-first thing i realized that it makes the game stuttering.
-then one time iīve lost the FFB during racing and couldnīt get it back via "FFB reset (v-key)"
-another time suddenly the wheel was pulling to the right side all the time.
-when the last two cases happened i couldnīt get out of the game anymore. It keeps hanging at "Leave Track" and i couldnīt even stop the rF2 process via Task Manager. Had to use the Reset Button.
rF2 Build 90
Let me know if you need more information.
I will try a few things later or tomorrow, maybe itīs just interferring with my Antivir, MSI Afterburner, Speedfan or something!?

Does your game stutter as in low FPS?
The plugin doesn't do anything with FFB so I can't imagine Fanaleds is causing this. I'd appreciate if you could do some more testing and make sure it is Fanaleds causing it. I've tested for several hours on a CSW and GT3RSV2 without any problems.
Thx for your fast answer,
yes i will verify it. Alls i can say for now is that this things didnīt happen before the plugin was installed.
But iīm experienced enough to know that there can be many reasons for such behaviour.
The stuttering thing is a little weird. At the first start with your plugin it was like freezing for a tenth of a second every two seconds. Then i started rF2 with admin rights and got that small freezes every second.
Tried different sync options in the launcher but didnīt change anything. Then tried it again without admin rights for the game and last time i started it, the stuttering was still there but more irregular
I think next time i will try it with a new player.plr.......

Check your inbox.
I ran it and nothing happened?
Did you run it with admins rights and followed the readme?
When you run Fanaleds, do you see the "fanaleds" text on your display? If you don't see this message something is wrong on your end.

While you're running the mod (it's only visible while running the game) that doesn't work, can you look in your rFactor root map (where the rFactor .exe is) for a fanaleds log file. Tell me what it says.
Yep no worries...this
Succesfully created shared memory object
Succesfully created shared memory map
Succesfully created event
That all seems fine. I'm afraid there's not much I can do about this.
Okay, thanks for your attention. It works great in other mods and the guys in my club are enjoying it to. Nice work.
Thank you Bose321 for your work ,it's working very nicely with every game i tried so far ,very happy to have leds and lcd working on rfactor and rfactor 2!
thank you again
Excellent Bose321, thanks alot!
Its working here with CSR Elite + CSP (on PS2). Did only test the speedgear mode cause thats exactly what i wanted. Flashing gear (indicating the need for upshifting) is great, cause you notice the flashing without looking at the wheel.
Interestingly, although im using firmware 722, its working. (Never did a firmware upgrade)
Ive noticed that fanaled is having 25% CPU utilization here, getting this down would be a nice improvement (shouldnt be that high IMHO). Also noticed some stuttering one time, maybe thats cause of the high CPU utilization?

That indeed is a very high number! Most PC's I ran it on used 0% of CPU usage.
Could you tell me what CPU you're running, and which game you were running?
I would also be interested in reproducing the error and look if for example one core in your CPU is on 100%.
About the firmware, not sure about that - I've had several reports of it not working like it should, but good that it does for you.
Was the stutter in your wheel, or the game?
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.4GHz
Motherboard: MSI 790FX-GD70
Memory: 8GB DDR3
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Video: MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr III Power Edition/OC,
Tridef, LG 55LW659S
Audio: ASUS Xonar Essence STX, 5.1 Dolby Digital Live, SPDIF
Wheel: Fanatec CSR Elite + Clubsport Pedals
Ive noticed the stuttering on the graphics. Like freezing, going on, freezing, going on. Happend ~2 sec and everything was ok again.
Using rfactor2 build 90, offline, All tracks & cars, Clio v0.1, Monte Carlo, 10 AI, in race.
I dont see one core on 100%.

Reason: ~2 sec
today iīve tried a USB 2.0 Port instead my USB 3 PCI-E card. Needed to reinstall the drivers and restart the system (Without the full procedure rF2 was running/stuttering more than horrible)
Now iīm still having very small stuttering, about 2 or 3 times per lap which doesnīt happen when fanaleds.exe is not running. But not a big problem!
Iīve just played rF2 for about an hour and the Wheel did not "crash" anymore. So iīm very happy for now!
I also have the feeling that the FFB on USB 2.0 feels different. Just imagination? Iīve complained about bad and numb overdampened feeling of the new drivers+firmware in the 911wheel blog. But now it seems to be much better on USB 2. Hm, donīt know!
The funny thing is, i bought the USB 3 card 2 years ago because sometimes the wheel lost itīs connection on the normal USB Ports. And all was ok since that time with several games. And now it seems like the USB 3 card can not handle the higher updaterates of the new firmware, the game, fanaleds, all in common or whatever
Thx again, Bose321
Maybe one more question. How do you trigger the Breake Padel Rumble on the CSP?
I ask this because i can have:
-locking tyres without rumble
-rumble without locking tyres
-rumble with locking tyres
Iīm not having a problem with that, just want to know if there is still something wrong here........
The CSPs are connected to another USB 2 Port not to the Wheel directly!

I've tried it in rF2 and though the plugin graphic shows when the game starts, the LED's don't work.
