    Hi all,

    I was wondering if there is any option on pressing START on my g27 instead of using the keyboard, since I then have to change all the things within the steering menu in F1 2011.

    Thanks for any help given,

    Claudio

    Seriously? You started a thread to ask? 14 buttons and you havent tried pushing them yourself? :D :D

    FYI - by default it should be the 3rd red button from the left on the shifter assembly to start the game.

    Ahh see there we go,

    I dont even have that setup on my desk. I am just using DSG. Is there any other option on making some other button the start button, because I really dont use the normal gearbox?

    ;)

    I dont use the H Shifter for gears either - well, maybe sometimes in Race07, but the plethora of buttons attached to it come in handy, like starting the game, selecting fuel map and tyres etc, just unimportant stuff like that. Guess its time to dig it out and hook it up mate.

    I have the H-Shifter On my BIG desk, but hardly use it for racing, i only use it for simulators like truck's , cars etc...

    works a treat when you need it tho.

    I sometimes wonder (seeing as I dont use the H-shift) about taking the useful buttons out of the H-shifter housing and relocating them to something better, a custom box / control panel that I could mount somewhere else, but still be connected to the G27 wheel.

    Hmm.....

    EDIT - something like this - http://altoguitar.com/buttonbox/

    But not quite as crazy as this...

    Oh what are you mounting it on mate? Stefan made you a custom wheel? I thought you said you had no clue with that sort of thing?

    Hehe, I just fancy a panel, or small box, or even a mounting plate on my actual wheel, that I could wire up some Knitter switches to the original Logitech board, so it still all works with the G27, rather than going down the more expensive Leo Bodnar SLI route.

    If you still have free buttons on your wheel you can always edit your action map (G27 Racing Wheel)
    and change
    <Action actionName="Menu Start Button">
    <Axis axisName="win_con_di_button19"

    Use the Logitech software to get button numbers and subtract 1 (so if you want button 22 you need to enter 21 in the action map file).

    Theres always g25/g27 shifter only auctions on ebay, take a punt on one and use that for mucking around with. IIRC there was one for £10 on there last week.

    No probs Paul, tbh, I was having similar ideas myself, that shifter thing is getting in the way - but with only 2 buttons on a g25, you kind of need it. I want to build a more compact thing to do the job - and gutting a £10 g25 spare off ebay should do the trick
