  1. 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. Regards,
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    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?
  6. 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.

    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.

    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!

    [PC][General] My Game Keeps Crashing

    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 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.

    There is something strange then, maybe specific to a GPU implementation. I have a Gigabyte GeForce 2080 and the gate will not even start in DX12
