We had to make a project in school, and we decided to make a H-shifter for computer car games.

Instead of the usual stick shifter, that goes back and forward, we made a more real shifter.

It started out as a Logitech gamepad, and turned out as a rather nice H-shifter.

When u push a button on the gamepad, it finishes an connection and a button is pushed. We soldered some wire on the gamepad, and mounted in every gate on the shifter. And we mounted an wire with the power on the pole.

It's quite get it working inside the games. We used it in tons of Car simulator games.

U can also see a video with it in action here :

Hello people, nice job.

I'm making one with a joystick and tool clips, h-gate, locking, lever and software. If you really want, I will do the web's first STEP BY STEP of how to build one with any joystick!

Respect to all drivers.

Mainbrook: In the games we tested it in yes...

Very nice. Can u shift back from 5 to 2, like with a real car. I use it to brake on the engine. Normally you have to push a few time on the buttons. But still 5/5 :D

Yeah you could use flussy fur over the top, so that the 'furryness' covers the guts but still allows freedom of movement.

Mitsukai06.06.2006 12:15 my humble opinion, if you work that up a little by putting some kind of inside shielding to cover those inside guts and also cover that wood with some carpet or something like that (in conclusion...if you pimp it up a little bit more), you have a nice thing to sell over there!!Most people who buy a stearing wheel doesn't like the could patent this as a real shifter and sell it!! 5/5...real great job!!
