The other day I thought to myself "Hmm, it's been a long time since I've fired up The Crew. Why don't I take it for a spin?" And so I plugged my Thrustmaster T300 GTE into the PS4, started up The Crew and…nothing.
At first I was worried my T300 had bitten the dust, but it turns out the PS4's V2.50 firmware update is to blame for rendering Thrustmaster wheels incompatible with The Crew. The issue also affects the Thrustmaster T80 as well.
Fortunately, Thrustmaster has provided a temporary fix while they work with Ivory Tower and Sony on a patch update:
The wheel will be recognized as a T500RS and will work in the game (except the SHARE and PS buttons).
# For the T80 racing wheel, switch the racing wheel to GAMEPAD mode, as specified at http://ts.thrustmaster.com/download/accessories/Manuals/T80RW/T80_WHEEL_GAMEPAD_MODES.pdf.
Remark #1: In GAMEPAD MODE, for optimum gameplay, set the RACING WHEEL SENSITIVITY of the T80 to High mode (the Led on the wheel must flash green), and set the Steering linearity to 75% in the game (in OPTIONS/CONTROLS).
