    Here's my problem:
    1. when I assign the steering commands to the Bodnar FFB system, the game crashes after clicking on Drive in the garage menu
    2. the game won't crash if any other input device is used for steering
    3. if I switch to my Bodnar profile in pause menu, the game crashes after clicking on Resume

    This problem only happened after the latest update. Earlier this week everything worked as it should.


    What I've tried so far:
    1. verified the game files through Steam
    2. flashed the firmware of the SimSteering device to the latest (3.9) and reverted back to 3.8
    3. tested 32bit and 64bit mode
    4. tried various USB ports
    5. disconnected all other game controllers

    Any help is much appreciated because the game isn't playable for me right now.

    I have OSW that now exhibits the same issue with crashing since March 15 2018 update. As soon as I select "drive" it crashes. I know some have had this issue with DD wheels for a while but mine has been working fine for 3 years now. I will send crash file when I get home.

    The hotfix works like a charm! I'm impressed by this fast response time from the dev team. :)

    @G.Deurwaerder You sir are suffering from the delayed patches.

    Ideally you should contact Steam support about not getting a patch delivered, but a workaround was found:

    - Delete some files from your game folder (like the executables)
    - Verify Integrity of game files
    - Let Steam download
    - You should then be good.

    Did Steam download anything after the verification process was finished?

    Which BuildID does Steam say your installation is on right now? (Right-click, go to properties, go to local files tab) Unbenannt.JPG
