Dropping out of gear

    As much as I'm impressed with all the recent changes one bug (feature?) is only getting worse: randomly dropping out of gear, or missing changes and being stuck unable to change back into gear. Not sure if it only affects G27 H shifters but it's bloody annoying. It seems the only way to get back into gear is clutch in, change to neutral, clutch out, clutch in and change back into gear.

    So is this actually a feature? Maybe on a clapped out 60s car but I'd be pretty angry spending 100+ grand on a real 2010s car only to have it drop out of gear mid rally several times every stage.
     
  2. 2010 cars have sequential gearbox so you shouldn't really have any problems there (unless you want to stick to manual with every single car then you have to wait until codies resolve the problem - it is annoying, I know :) )
     
  3. I confirm the problem.
    1 step forward, 2 steps backward.
    Dropping out of gear does not happen so often after this update... but when it happens I cant put the gear back for few seconds...
     
  4. Yeah, tried one stage after the update, not playing until it's completely fixed. The dropping out of gear was bad enough and at times almost made it unplayable before the update. Since the update, to basically have to waste seconds in order to change/re-engage a gear when it happens is ridiculous. All I drive is Group A or older cars, so I'll always run into this.

  5. Never had this issue on G25. Try reporting it to the team on the CM forum or Twitter or Steam.

    Thanks guys. I might see about signing up for yet another forum...
     
  7. Check If You have H-shifter with clutch option enabled then, because as a G25 user myself, I stumbled upon this frustrating problem during the first minutes of testing the new version.

    The gearbox system is crap. No sequential with clutch aswell. But they will fix sooner or later.
