How to switch between paddle and H-pattern gear shifters on PC
My instinct tells me this is not an Assetto Corso problem, but I'm a newbie, so I know just enough to be dangerous. I bought a standard vanilla PC Formula bundle from Fanatec, augmented with Heusinkveld pedals, and an H-pattern shifter.
PC: Dell G5
ClubSport Shifter SQ V 1.5
Podium Wheel Base DD1
ClubSport Steering Wheel Formula V2
Podium Advanced Paddle Module (problem existed independent of whether this was added to system)
Heusinkveld Sprint Sim Pedals
Assetto Corso (Ultimate)
Downloaded latest drivers. System worked flawlessly from the start, except I can't get Assetto Corso to accept that I want to use the manual H-pattern shifter instead of the paddles on the Steering Wheel. I need something I can set to choose between those two options.
Setup in AC allows me to select a manual shifter, but AC doesn't respond to that shifter's actions.
The H-shifter is plugged into the DD1 in one of two possible positions: SHIFTER1 or SHIFTER2. Neither solves the problem. Whether plugged into SHIFTER1 or SHIFTER2, the Steering Wheel's display always shows an icon for manual shifting. Yet AC still expects paddle inputs.
Shifting the manual shifter causes the display on the Steering Wheel to indicate the proper gear, but Assetto Corso does not change its gear indicator. Using the paddle shifter changes AC but the selected gear does not show on the steering wheel.
Clutch operates correctly for engaging 1st gear from stop. I can use the paddle shifters during AC. If the engine hits the red line, AC shifts up for me automatically. Downshifts occur, but not optimally... one has to hit the down paddle and hope that AC wasn't already downshifting at that moment.
Overall, I'm left wondering how to enact manual shifting. Do I need to purchase a GT wheel?
