"double bind" keys? i.e. sequential + paddle to Shift Up

    Hey guys,

    I have a sequential shifter, and obviously my wheel has paddles. I'd like both to be mapped at the same time so I don't have to re-do it every time I change mod - is this possible?

    Nope, unfortunately - unless you can run 3rd party software that would map your paddle to your shifter - i.e. they both appear as the same button. I'm sure I've seen some about - but it wasn't designed for this purpose so it may not work brilliantly. Can't remember where I saw it though.
  3. AFAIK you can't "double bind". I'm not an expert though...

    However, you could make more than one Control Profile. I do that on both rFactor and Race 07 as they both have many different cars that use different gear-change-types (H-Pattern, Sequential Stick, Paddles). This means you can just switch your control profile. I own a G25, and I have many different Profiles:

    For rFactor:
    G25 - H-Pattern & Paddles
    G25 - Sequential Stick
    G25 - WRC Configuration
    G25 - WRC H-Pattern
    G25 - Historic GT
    PS3 Controller
    Keyboard (for Testing)

    For RACE 07:
    G25 Paddle Shift CUSTOM
    G25 Sequential Shift CUSTOM
    G25 H-Pattern CUSTOM

    In both games it's pretty quick and easy to switch between the different configurations in the garage (just a few clicks).

    Also, in rFactor, you don't need to re-do the whole controller profile. You just make any necessary changes to your existing controller profile, click "Save" and then save it under a different name :)

    So, AFAIK, that is the easiest solution.
  4. I'll give you another solution for that, there is a program called JoyToKey where you can map your paddles and shifter to the same key.
    It's a 3rd party software, I've used it for kers/drs system and it works pretty well, never had any problems.

    That's what I was thinking of :)
  7. Only thing you can double map would be having the wheel setup with the paddle & h-shifter.
