    @Master Weasel, I sort of know how you feel regarding the "Tranny Bug". I don't tune my cars either. I rely on others who publish tunes. Usually, I drive "replica" tunes, but I also have the regular type of tunes on some of my cars as well. Anyway, I found a work around for a lot of the tunes that I thought were now screwed because of the bug. Let me try to explain it to you.

    Let's say that you have a tune which calls for you to set the transmission with the flip method:

    Set Default
    Set Final to 4.420
    Set Auto Max Speed at 230kmh / 149mph
    Adjust each gear :
    1st 3.150
    2nd 2.000
    3rd 1.560
    4th 1.240
    5th 1.030
    6th 0.860
    Set Final : 4.000

    We know that this transmission is going to be a victim of the "Tranny Bug" and reset to default once your tires hit the track because the tuning instructions call for moving the Final Gear AFTER you've moved the Max Speed slider. We know that THAT is what triggers the Tranny Bug. What you need to do is find a Max Speed setting that will allow ALL of the gear ratios called for in that particular tune. In this case, setting a Max Speed of 180mph works!! So does 174mph and 168mph...

    So, in order to set the transmission from the tune above we would do the following:

    Set Default
    Set Final to 4.000
    Set Auto Max Speed at 168mph (174 or 180 also work)
    Adjust each gear :
    1st 3.150
    2nd 2.000
    3rd 1.560
    4th 1.240
    5th 1.030
    6th 0.860

    You notice there is no moving of the Final Gear after setting the individual gear ratios. We already put in the correct Final Gear before we touched 1st gear. Yes, I know that you don't want to have to mess around like this -- you just want the old way of doing things back. Well, so do I and many others. However, at least this method DOES work so you can continue to use your existing tunes without fear of a transmission resetting on you...

    I wouldn't be surprised if there is a transmission tune out there that can't use the method I just described. Probably if it has a very high or very low Final Gear -- But I'm just guessing.

    This is good if you have problems replicating tunes or using other people's tunes, so long as the Final Drive is NOT the slider that was set last. But in the overall sense of tuning cars, I agree, this method is just not practical.

    Only if you're leaning on a branch of faith that their wheel lists will be identical. ;)

    Now granted, PCars added Fanatec wheels to their roster, but if GT7 pops up with Logitech compatibility(which it likely won't) it would be cheaper.

    Also, as you said, timing. There's a difference between needing a PS4 now, and needing one whenever the hell PD releases another game. (which as we know, could easily be 2 more years)

    Wasn't it possible to work around it by just doing things as usual, then move a random gear one step up and then back again after touching final gear?

    Blah blah blah ... Complaining for the sake of complaining you say? That's the pot calling the kettle me thinks. I'm not sure what you mean by 'FF's' but I'm assuming its perjorative and indicative of the fact that perhaps you should be the one growing up.
