Grinding Tranny Mod version 2.0 "High-heel and Toe Edition"
for rFactor by Richard Jackett (hardjack79 at nogrip)

Using your H-pattern shifter, if you change gear without using the clutch and do not match the revs closely enough you will hear the gearbox grinding, and you will remain in neutral until you re-shift using the clutch (alternatively you can set the mod to accept just a re-clutching instead of a full re-shift, or even to have a fixed delay). If you use the clutch properly then your shifts will always be successful.

Features:

Detects when gearshifts should not succeed and makes the gearbox react accordingly, leaving you in neutral.
NEW: After missing a shift, a full clutched reshift is now needed (clutch-only and fixed time options also available).
NEW: Has its own sound engine to play grinding sounds (or optionally use rFactor's horn function).
NEW: Driver name and control details are now automatically detected so editing of the ini file is no longer needed.
NEW: Plugin can be turned on/off from within the upgrades menu, and can use different settings for each car.
NEW: Real-time output of gearbox state (grinding or not grinding) so that hobbyists can add FFB to their gear shifters.
IMPROVED: Telemetry can be written to a console and/or a text file to help you analyse your shifting technique.
Automatically loads the current gear ratios for your car every time you hit the track.
Highly customisable via an ini file, which is reloaded every time you hit the track.
OLD: A developer that is keen to hear suggestions and bug reports to improve the plugin.

Installation:

1. In your controller.ini / plr file you should have "Gear Select Button Hold" enabled, and "Auto Clutch", "Auto Blip", and "Auto Lift" disabled.
2. Unpack the archive to your rFactor installation folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\rFactor).
3. In rFactor, go to the Controller panel, and map a key to the "Neutral" function.
4. Also in the Controller panel, make sure Upshift and Downshift are unmapped, as these affect how rFactor treats shifts.

Link to official thread to follow soon.

Features

Detects when gearshifts should not succeed and makes the gearbox react accordingly, leaving you in neutral.
NEW: After missing you need to make a full clutched reshift to get into gear (clutch-only and fixed time options are also available).
NEW: Has its own sound engine to play grinding sounds (or optionally use rFactor's horn function to keep CPU load down).
NEW: Driver name and control details are now automatically detected so editing of the ini file is no longer needed.
NEW: Plugin can be turned on/off from within the upgrades menu, and can use different settings for each car (needs mod support).
NEW: Real-time output of gearbox state (grinding or not grinding) so that hobbyists can add FFB to their gear shifters.
IMPROVED: Telemetry can be written to a console and/or a text file to help you analyse your shifting technique (aka post-mortem).
Automatically loads the current gear ratios for your car every time you hit the track.
Highly customisable via an ini file, which is reloaded every time you hit the track.
OLD: A developer that is very keen to hear about your experiences, suggestions, and bug reports to improve the plugin in future.


Installation

1. In your plr file you should have "Gear Select Button Hold" enabled, and "Auto Clutch", "Auto Blip", and "Auto Lift" disabled.
2. Unpack the archive to your rFactor installation folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\rFactor).
3. In rFactor, go to the Controller panel, and map a key to the "Neutral" function.
4. Also in the Controller panel, make sure Upshift and Downshift are unmapped, as these affect how rFactor treats shifts.

And you're done! To check the basic functionality of the mod, I recommend testing with a default car such as the rTrainer, which should work well without modification. If you want to tweak some settings the GrindingTranny.ini file is fully documented. For some addon cars, the car files may need to be edited to get the best results, see https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=1P_4A4d2byEHRtTK6amt6XcpEsyxU6U3BnA6b0S7I-Cw for details. For general troubleshooting see https://docs.google.com/View?id=df2v6vkr_43f2xqtfrk.


Uninstallation

rFactor\Plugins\ holds all the files you need to delete: GrindingTranny.dll, GrindingTranny.ini, GrindingTranny_ReadMe.html, GrindingTranny_Telemetry.txt (created), BASS.dll, Grind_Default.wav


Disclaimer

There is nothing in this mod that will intentionally do anything terrible to your computer or your rFactor install or your favourite of Newton's laws (although your lap times may suffer). However, should anything bad happen as a result of downloading/installing/using these files, I won't be held responsible for it. In other words, the choice to install is all yours, as is the risk.
