    You all know forum member Derek Speare. He is the guy that kindly asked us for the triple screen support. What you might don't know is that Derek also creates and sells some of the most amazing virtual racing peripherals.

    Why I'm I making free publicity? Because Derek, after seeing that we included triple screen support in Assetto Corsa, he immediately contacted me and asked for my postal address. He then went on and send me for free, not one but two of his sequential shifters and I can tell you there are a joy to look at and use! Of course they are already recognised by Assetto Corsa's controls options.


    P.S. Control options panel is not final nor graphically ready, but it works in recognising peripherals and does so real time, without need to restart the program. Plug&Drive :p
