    Nice. Post pics when it's all done 🙂

    Have decided to delay the installation of the rotary switches for a little while, so have enclosed pics of the clutch assembly and joystick controller installed. I removed a couple of sections of rib to get the controller inside the wheel. No apparent loss of integrity in the wheel. Secured the controller with hot glue. Clutch assembly is bolted in place. Really happy with the clutch assembly except for the thin retaining bolt across the back - it has gone a bit rusty. Will replace this with a better quality bolt, SS maybe.

  2. Thanks Stevie,

    You are correct, the mapping was fine. Turns out I missed the assist setting for un assisted start. Selected un assisted start and hey presto, the clutch paddle works fine - too good really, out of three "new" starts, two jump starts and resulting penalty.......  The manual clutch really increases the immersion level. Love it!

    The clutch paddle is the 3 DRAP paddle assembly (https://www.3drap.it/product/universal-magnetic-clutch-for-custom-steering-wheels/) and I use the Leo Bodner BU0836A 12-Bit Joystick Controller. I intend to add two rotary switches to the wheel, the will also work through the LB board. The board fits neatly inside the top of the wheel.

  3. Hi All, a novice player looking for some advice on how to set up a clutch paddle.

    I have installed a analogue clutch paddle on my wheel. It is driven through a Leo Bodner joystick interface. The PC (W10) "sees" the clutch and I am able to calibrate etc.

    When assigning controls in F1 2019 set up I can assign the paddle to the clutch, so the software "sees" the paddle. But when I try to use the clutch in a race start, it seems to be ignored. The starts are the same whether I use the clutch paddle or not.

    Is there a setting or an "aid" in the software that I have to set up that I have missed? I have set the gears to manual with clutch.

    So I just finished the Italian GP on F1 2019 in carreer mode in the Alfa Romeo. I had a fantastic race, led all the laps and came over the finish line first. However, when I crossed the line, Jeff said it was “disappointing” and the game showed me as P19. 


    In the race director I had no penalties and the timing screens said I was a lap down even though I Wasn’t. 


    Absolutely fuming for this one because it was the first time in this career mode I had developped the alfa romeo well enough and driven well enough to score a genuine win. 

    Tha same thing hs just happened to me at Bahrain

  5. Was competing in the Bahrain GP in career mode. Went through the practice sessions, qualified on pole, ran the race and was never headed except during the pit stops. Passed a number of back markers  and was in the lead as we crossed the finish line. The game then said, race completed and put me in 19th! Bit annoying.

    Has anyone seen similar behavior?

    "Need help with something technical? Get technical assistance from your fellow players in this forum."

    Is the forum description 🙂 

    OK, apologies, but nevertheless Codemasters' personnel do appear here on this forum from time to time; and, for the record, in other venues they have steadfastly refused to respond to any of my formal requests for help, as did Gigabyte. Nvidia on the other hand provided exemplary support.

  7. I installed the recently released Nvidia driver and the game now runs in DX 12. Very happy. Seems the driver install did the trick. For the record, absolutely fabulous support from Nvidia. They answered my query the very next day and their suggestions were really helpful. They were also really interested in how the problem resolved its self. Qudos to them. Also for the record - absolutely no response from Codemasters or Gigabyte!

  8. Hi All, just to round out my part of the thread. Nvidia released a new driver a week or so ago. I installed the driver using their tools (which uninstalled the original driver), and hey presto, the game runs really well in DX12!!!  There was nothing in the release notes that related to game crashes so I suspect that the simple act of reinstalling the driver using the Nvidia tools did the trick.

    I've built 3 different PCs and they all ran F1 2019 first time of asking. Seems many of the issues are with Nvidia cards.

    I have a Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 GPU. I have to say the response from them has been just as bad as Codemasters - absolutely nothing. I worked for may years managing the development of realtime aircraft tracking systems technology that is deployed around the world. Happy that we had a different concept for customer and systems support! Looks like it is back to the Xbox and junk the PC.

  10. I am very confused by the forum title - Codemasters has failed to provide me with any technical assistance at all!!!!

    The game still refuses to run in DX12 and my PC exceeds all of the recommended specs and is brand new - configured specifically for this so called F1 2019 sim. Absolutely no answers from Codemasters. What a joke and now way to receive any form of compensation.

  11. Hi All, continuing to play my new boy card 🙂 I am having difficulty in finding F1 2019 on DVD in Aus, so looks like I will be forced to use Steam. My question, once I have purchased the game, can I down load it to my local PC, then simply play the game direct without having to be logged into Steam et al?

    Thanks for youy patience andhelp

    I’ve played the game on both the One X and PC and I ended up staying with PC but graphically the difference is barely noticable and both run 4k60 just fine if you have the right spec. The only issue I’ve had is when the game is running everything else starts to lag so basically I can’t have the game running in the background whilst doing something else. It all depends if you’re willing to spend the money for a high spec PC or not but for the price of the One X the game runs very well on it. Another thing to bear in mind is that PC always gets patches a couple or so weeks earlier than the consoles.

    Cheers ptank, We are a fully fledged Mac household so I have the luxury of "reserving" the PC for sim use only. I would like to understand the potential performance impacts of running simhub (or similar peripheral managers) in conjunction with the game. I am looking to include a button box and perhaps build my own wheel as some point. One of the biggest attractions to a PC base for me is the ability to mod up a custom rig. The consoles seem to limit your options somewhat.

    A PC build that at least matches the current consoles should be significantly cheaper in most 1st world countries so long as you build the PC yourself. Not that you should want to settle for just that much.

    Thanks Coffer,

    My envisaged build is:

    CPU - Ryzen 5 3600x

    GPU - Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming 8G OC

    Mobo - Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming 5 (WIFI)

    Together with all the other bits, RAM, cooler and so on, here in Aus = $2,500 ish. This ought to give a good basis to expand in the future, potential second GPU if it is needed. Just looking for the specs for the next generation Xbox, I think they have been released.

  14. Hi All,

    Just getting back in to F1 sim. I run F1 2018 on Xbox one X. Xbox presents a number of limitations particularly with regard to number of buttons/encoders that are recognised (not many). So I am considering a shift to PC, but it is an expensive decision - high performance CPU, GPU, cooling and so on. But you get greater mod opportunities (simhub etc.). However having had a quick browse through this forum it seems there are still performance issues with F1 2018/19 running on a PC? (Reminds me of the bad old days of GP2, 3 and 4, almost deja vu) 

    So, requesting the collective's advice - should I shift to PC, or stay with my X box?

    Thanks all for helping an old timer out.


  15. Thanks CJ,

    I was experiencing this issue with each app I downloaded and tested, but the problem is now SOLVED :classic_tongue:😀 It seems that when the Codies team says use the format xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx for the IP address, they are not expecting (compulsorily) 12 digits, as it was in my "old" days. So replacing with fixed the problem - easy. Big shout out to the SRT team who responed to my question really quickly and made the suggeston.



  16. Hi,

    I am very new, so apologies in advance. I have been trying to get a sim dash running on my iphone. I have tried at least three types and have also tried a UDP terminal, but so far no luck. The apps just sit there listening.

    I have forwarded ports (20777), given my Xbox a static IP and placed the IP in the DMZ, and Xbox reports the NAT as open. Xbox one and iphone are on the same WLAN. I don't know what else to try. I am in Australia using a Telstra smart modem (NBN).

    Does anyone have any other suggestions.?

    Thank you

  17. Hello, I am a brand new F1 Sim "addict". Currently own F1 2018 and running a Thrustmaster TX Ferrari F1 wheel and Pedal addon. Really enjoying the early days, lost of aids still on, but still great fun.
