I love the idea, but I was wondering if you could shed some light on a the exact usb controller you bought please.

I am wanting to use this for euro truck simulator (as I am trying to get some hours up before actually get my license/ CDL). How can i change the standard 7 speed into a 18 or even 21 speed shifter? But also use it a 7 speed for other racing games? 6 forward one reverse?

Also do you have any plans for a diy driving wheel?

Kind Regards

Hi;

You can buy any controller, but the cheapest is the best as it is less complicated, you can buy genius brand. Also I am using this for ETS2, I removed the shifter that came with my Logitech g27, and using my own shifter as it is way better and gives more realistic feeling. You can change the gears from high or low by assigning a button on the controller in the game settings itself to change from 7 to 14 or even 21.

Regards.

Can you please reactivate the download for the template, because I want to rebuild this shifter, but since I have no experience with any kind of PC-shifter, I don't know how big it should be...
