    I think I remember reading that they might revisit gearbox at some point, which would indeed be good.

    Some version of Netkar had some gearbox code so you could not shift completely unrealistic method, also LFS has had such, so would be nice to level up and go past of some other titles at this area too.

    iRacing has it too... so I think rF2 must do it at some not too distant point in time.
    I find it very fun, in some cars you have to use the clutch, in others you have to keep in mind the speed and RPM so you need to have some sort of rythm when changing gears, and sometimes you are braking for a turn and get trouble shifting and you think "change change change pleeeeaaassseeee!!!" while fighting with the accelerator while braking to try to make the lower gear get in :).
    Fun stuff yep!

    I would love to see a proper Shifting/Clutch-Model in rF2.
    Please ISI...

    Another vote here for a realistic gearbox/clutch. :)

    in sequencial gearboxes it should be possible to shift up a gear without using the clutch by lifting the gas (like with motorcycles)

    Lots of cars with H Pattern shifting can upshift without the clutch too. Well they can downshift as well, but not as easily and you have to match the revs darn close too, or you will grind gears in a nasty way.
    I think if anythng there should be a mechanical damage multiplier that comes into effect every time one up shifts without the clutch and even more so when down shifting. This would be the closest to realistic as possible, I think.

    Clutch function could stand better adjustments than what is currently in the game. Something like DXTweak would allow you to do. With it you could set how far you had to push the pedal before the clutch would disengage and how much you had to let it out before it would engage. Made for a much more realistic feel to the clutch. Sadly DXTweak doesn't work on Vista on up, I don't believe.

    Try DIView.

    Does it work without the Precision Joystick Controller BU0836 card?
    Rise of Flight can do what I would like to see rFactor2 do from within its Controls menu.
    Now if DIView will do pretty much the same thing as DXTweak does without the need for the card, that would be fine, I think.

    I am using it on a BU0836-LC. I setup how I want it to be and close DIView. The settings hold for all games and after reboots.

    I think that is what you are asking?

    +1 for realistic shifting/clutch/gearbox! Will this be implemented soon or is it not considered important?

    I believe last word of this being that they plan to revisit gearbox code at some point. So, whatever that gives for importance and time frame, probably not for next patch and probably not unimportant either. When time is right, then probably it gets implemented, but we live, we see.

    This has come up before but I will reiterate- I really want another clutch setting- Auto, Manual, Real. As it is now, there's no competitive reason to use the clutch (except to take off at the start or pit stop) and any plugin that simulates grinding gears is only a disadvantage online. There needs to be a server option for realistic gears. It'll change the game and really make this the best sim out there for historical racing.

    That goes for all gearboxes using dog clutches instead of synchromesh, be it sequential or H-pattern.
