I would just stick with that if I could switch around the settings drive and reverse to say go to the left and up for drive and down and right for reverse but unfortunately the game doesn't allow for it so how do you program the splitter and individual gears with the stick?
Ive scoured youtube for videos on this without any luck already.
What I did initially was open the settings, set the wheel up with an up/down arrow so it gets recognised (ok you got that part) then use the + to add the shifter (yours may be included as part of the wheel or seperate). Go to the controls and set as follows (yours may be different as the shifter is built in, mine is Logitech but with an adaptor so standalone-but at least this gives you an idea). The way you set yours up may be slightly or a lot different if all one unit.
Shifter Layout = Custom Range_splitter <<<< You choose the setting you want here with the menu choices (see note 1 below)
Shifter Position: reverse = Joy2Button7 (See note 2 below)
Shifter Position 1 Joy2Button 0 (See note 2 below)
Shifter Position 2 Joy2Button 1 (See note 2 below)
Shifter Position 3 Joy2Button 2 (See note 2 below)
Shifter Position 4 Joy2Button 3 (See note 2 below)
Shifter Position 5 Joy2Button 4 (See note 2 below)
Shifter Position 6: Joy2Button 5 (See note 2 below)
Shifter Toggle: 1 = Set to any button you can remember (See note 2 below)
Shifter Toggle: 2 = Set to any button you can remember (See note 2 below)
Try range, splitter, all the custom setups, everything in the list one by one AFTER you set all the Shifter Positions AND the 2 Shifter Toggles. See what gears they give you and if anything is useful, RANGE may be best as it gives you 1,2,3,4,5 and 6th gear then press a button from the Shifter Toggles and you get 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12th gear (low and high box). Splitter may be 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 hit the toggle/s and get 2,4,6,8,10,12 gears from the same levers. Either match the shifter layout to the traditional truck gears or your personal needs, or a mix of the two.
To get the shifter reverse and gears 1-6 you click on them in the settings one at a time and select the gear on the shifter itself, then in theory it fills in something like;
Shifter Position 1 Joy2Button 0
But in my case 1,2,3,4 gears worked. Gear 5 took out gear 3 and put it in 5. Gear 6 took out gear 4 and put it in 6. I repeated and repeated it and it did it every time, reverse was tricky and I noticed it registered each gear in the settings as I toook the gear back into neutral, not as it was put into gear-so reverse is tricky as its push down, pull back, push forward slowly and as it drops it registers in the settings. I then opened the Controls.sii up with Notepad++ and filled them all in manually as I could see what numbers they were all using, saved it and got them all including 5th and 6th which were not registering properly by selecting the gear in the shifter. Gear 5 and 6 only worked when pulled to the right, if not they reported the wrong gears of 3 and 4, duplicates-I had gear 3 and 4 twice in different locations.
No matter if you use Range, Splitter, custom splitter or anything else you need these Shifter Positions filled in. They are then applied by the program to the type of Shifter Layout you choose. If all 6 of yours work then either RANGE or SPLITTER or RANGE SPLITTER may be best for you, your choice. For me personally only 4 gears + reserve work so I made a setting for 4 gears that worked with 2 x Shifter Toggles to give all 12 gears and the Reverse gear too with 2 speeds. One toggle to shift LOW/HIGH Box and the other toggle to split the box so I could get say 2 on the toggle and 7/8 with a toggle to split the two, so first press gives 7th gear and second press gives 8th gear. If 7th then all splits on all gears are odd number range and if 8 then all splits are even numbers on all the gears.
I hope this sets you on the right path and is not too wide of the mark for what info you need, apologies if not. With mine I transferred the files to ATS when finished in ETS2 and got that sorted really quickly. In there I get LOW gear (crawler gear before 1st), 1, 2, 3, toggle then 4, 6, 8, 10 toggle then 5, 7, 9, 11 and a slow Reverse + a higher speed Reverse. The reverses naturally only work when the toggles are set for low box, not high box so that keeps it safe. So many choices but no 12th in ATA, unlike ETS2-11th is ample though and does not over rev. lol
EDIT: I have no clutch pedal so my clutch is set to automatic. If you have a clutch pedal then it needs to be set up in the contols. Without that the gears do not work properly, the splitters etc may not show the gears working. Another point I failed to mention, when drawing up to traffic lights etc and stopping, the gear number will show neutral on the dash guages. As soon as you press the accellerator the gear number shows again.
