    Serious Gearing Issue Ruining Game

    Hi, new to the forums here. I am experiencing a serious issue with gearing in the game. In career races, I often find my car will cease to change gears for no apparent reason. Iím racing as normal and then suddenly Iím stuck in whatever gear I was in and cannot change.

    Iím playing with a controller that works fine on other games. I have tried turning off all damage settings so it canít be how Iím driving the car (though my original attempts to fix it with this in mind did cause my gear changes to get a lot cleaner!)

    Iíve also uninstalled and reinstalled, this solved the problem for the race at Snetterton that the glitch was happening on every time, but now itís gappening again in another race. Returning to pit box when this happens during practice or qualifying also fixes it, but I canít do this during a race of course, especially as it seems to strike near the end of races.

    Iím racing in GT5 if that helps. I really hope someone can help with this issue as itís ruining a game Iíve really started to enjoy. Thanks.

    I don't remember what it is called. Something like minimum shift time. It's under the same settings where you adjust sensitivity, dead zones, etc. Make sure that number is set to 0.

    Please let us know if that corrected the issue.

    I had one case with v 1.5 in which Pcars 2 changed from automatic to sequential in game settings.
    But it was before the race in my case, so I don't think it could be the same issue (if issue happen again, check gearbox type to confirm it is still on automatic)

    I have not had this happen. Some more details would be helpful.

    Are you using pad or wheel? How are you changing gear? Flipper, button or stick? What is auto clutch set to?

    Ah, maybe i should have reported this because i've had this and double downshifting problems before.. I'm suspecting you've remapped the comtroller and moved gear shifting onto the buttons, so if that is the case then just go back to the controller config and remap your gear select with the SAME buttons (no need to reset them all to default) you chose. That cured it for me. My only guess was that because 'B' and 'X' were already mapped ftom default (and i got an 'already in use' message when changing them) the game has at some point gotten confused with my changes.

    If you haven't altered the default buttons then ignore me

    Hi my minimum shift time was already zero, so i changed my clutch deadzone to 0 as it wasn’t for some reason and my clutch sensitivity to 50. This fixed the problem for the race I was stuck on but it still reappears occasionally for no reason. Still sometimes ruining a race. I have remapped my buttons so I’ll try the technique Just another Frog suggested. I’m playing on pad as stated in my original post and I have clutch on LB and gear down/up on X/Y respectively on the paddles on the back of my pad

    Ok so I tried resetting the mapping of my controller by just typing in the same buttons and then tried changing them to different buttons and changing them back. This didn’t work it’s still happening and now is happening consistently again on this qualifying I’m trying to do.

    Update it is happening consistently on qualifying on the second to last corner. Every time on my first full lap of qualifying. I’m massively disappointed with this and I feel i’ve wasted my money.

    What controller are you using?
    What are your Controls/Gameplay settings? What assists have you got switched on? What are you Controller settings (auto clutch, auto gears etc.)?

    You're the only person complaining about this issue, so it's fair to assume currently that it's a local issue on your end, and that it can be solved.

    Can you post a video of this please?

    Do you have any driving assists enabled?
    Do you have automatic pit stops activated?
