    I'll give it a test to confirm it's still working. In the meantime this setting occurred to me in the controller.JSON, I don't know if it would affect the way you're describing but I have this set to true:

    Code:
        "Gear Select Button Hold":true,
        "Gear Select Button Hold#":"Enable this option if using a gear select device that holds down a joystick button while in a gear and releases all buttons in neutral (such as the Act-Labs USB Shifter)",
    

    *And just to check: which car are you in? In case it does something special...


    @Tnadz checked, still works the same. Turning off Realistic Gearshift and pressing the Neutral myself flicks it into N for a split second, then back into gear. If I press it quite quickly it's effectively staying in neutral, which is all the program can do.

    You're right, it can't override the actual gear selection, it's only throwing Neutrals in there. Throttle isn't having any effect for me.

    sounds like you have the auto shift option enabled. But since you are looking for a shifting app, that would not seem to be likely.

    @Lazza That's a very good find. I'll give it a go and see if that works. I really appreciate the feedback. I'm working with a team to try and get this to work for a Purist class in a historic series and it would be phenomenal if we can get it working. I'll come back and let you know if there are any changes.

    @Lazza You are a genius! That did it. We experimented with it. The old version is required in order for it to spam the neutral button (current version only presses the neutral button once). There were some instances where having
    "Gear Select Button Hold":false caused the missed gear to allow you to engage a gear while the shifter is physically in neutral. But that was easy to clear by just popping into another gear or back in and then out of the gear quickly. Bravo.

    I want to try this but i have a question:

    My keyboard does not have a "Numpad 0" key. Can i map my "home" button instead (and how)?

    Change the value in gearshift.ini for neutral button from DIK_NUMPAD0 to DIK_HOME. You will have to map it to Neutral in rFactor too.
