Manual gearbox

Discussion in 'F1 2012 - The Game' started by Ljubisa_frizer, Nov 2, 2012.

  1. I was just wandering is there any deference between manual and manual&sugested gearbox, i mean in the way of driving and shifting.

    No, not at all. The only difference is that "Manual & Suggested" will show a small box beneath the rev counter, showing which gear you should be (and that's not even accurate) in.

    Still can't understand why this sort of driving aid is active if it's set to Expert.

  3. That what I thought, but it crossed my mind that maybe there is something more, like semiauto (overrev protection ....). I'm driving on ps3 cockpit view and there is no suggested gear.
  4. Well there's your problem.
    Wait, is it? Suggested simply means... (Stuff Tom said)

    Cockpit view removes the RPM OSD IIRC. (Or I removed it myself.)

    No, it doesn't work like that Ljubisa.
  5. Hummm...

    Thanks for that Tom.

    Now i know why i haven't noticed any difference. Driving in cockpit view with no osd i was wondering the difference since i haven't found any.

    Starting at around 1:20, the small red (not in the suggested gear) / green (in the suggested gear) box - it's annoying. :D
  7. Annoying really. lol :D
    Guess it was the CM's way to help new players. I've noticed that on some videos, but i thought it was the default, not the "CM's suggestion".
    Should work very bad if you change the gear ratios, i don't think this will follow the cars revs :O_o:
