TH8A Shifter - Mapping 7th Gear?

#1 Post by djfil » 02 Oct 2015 15:42

I'm loving ETS2 with my TH8A shifter. But it doesn't appear possible to map it's 7th forward gear. I'd love to do a custom range giving ability to select 7 forward gears. Does anyone have a recommendation about how to do this? I've read the options here, http://www.eurotrucksimulator2.com/input_config.php, but can't understand if this would give an option to map a 7th gear position.

Thanks.

first look into controls.sii (in your profile folder), there is sequence of gear stick position mixes (you may have different line numbers).

Code: Select all

 config_lines[284]: "mix gear1 `joy.b15?0`"
 config_lines[285]: "mix gear2 `joy.b9?0`"
 config_lines[286]: "mix gear3 `joy.b10?0`"
 config_lines[287]: "mix gear4 `joy.b11?0`"
 config_lines[288]: "mix gear5 `joy.b12?0`"
 config_lines[289]: "mix gear6 `joy.b13?0`"
 config_lines[290]: "mix gear7 `joy.b14?0`"
 config_lines[291]: "mix gear8 ``"
 config_lines[292]: "mix gear9 ``"
 config_lines[293]: "mix gear10 ``"
 config_lines[294]: "mix gear11 ``"
 config_lines[295]: "mix gear12 ``"
 config_lines[296]: "mix gear13 ``"
 config_lines[297]: "mix gear14 ``"
 config_lines[298]: "mix gear15 ``"
 config_lines[299]: "mix gear16 ``"
the few that are set up are standard 7 (6+reverse) that most shifter uses. they are in options ui. but you can set much more. just get button number and manually fill "mix gear8" in similar way.
then you can create your own layout for shifter (files gerabox*.sii) that uses this input - gear_impulse_index: 8.
Nobody can tell you anything about it. Those who know about it aren't allowed to talk. And those who talk know nothing.

Thank you Max! Can I name my own Gearbox*.sii? Such as Gearbox_Mine.sii? And then I'll have the option to choose a shifter option called "Mine" (for example)?

EDIT: Thank you. I got it done by editing the gearbox_splitter.sii file. Now have the primary mode accessing 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10 & R. Works great for my driving style. :)

just note that in one of previous update was changed work with custom gearbox layouts.
currently any file with name "gearbox_layout_*.sii" (if correct) will be read and made selectable in game options.
