  • Put DismembermentASI.asi by CamxxCore in your GTA V folder (if not already installed)
  • Read the README and configure the mod to your preferences with the in-game menu.
  • Use the in-game menu! Wheel users: Assign all axes and buttons you intend to use.

For FiveM, read this.
Please stop bothering me with FiveM issue reports and requests. Questions regarding FiveM will be ignored.

  • Put Gears.asi and the folder ManualTransmission in your GTA V folder
  • Old settings do NOT need to be overwritten
  • Check the changelog for new or changed options

  • Menu opening:
    • Press [{ (US layout) (right of the "P" on most QWERTY keyboards)
    • Enter the "mtmenu" cheat (without quotes)
    • Press RB + B on your controller

  • Default keys: Check the options in the menu or check the readme

Feel free to change the menu keys and buttons to something more convenient! The default layout is for US-layout keyboards. You'll want to edit settings_menu.ini.

Recommended mods
  • Gameplay and driving:
    • A handling mod, essential for wheels with force feedback! Check the handling section below.
    • Custom Gear Ratios: Essential if you have cars with more than 6 gears, and allows matching gear ratios with the real car counterparts.
    • Turbo Fix: A quicker, more realistic turbo response.
    • Dial Accuracy Fix: Map the dashboard speedometer dials to fit your real speed, for more immersion.
    • ACSPatch: Keep wheels turned when exiting cars

  • Speedometers with proper gears and revs:

  • Scripts that counter the power loss while drifting or sliding (also mitigated by the LSD):

Handling mods
The default grip levels cause the wheel to bounce left and right because they're too grippy.
These handlings have reduced grip to realistic levels, and are essential for playing with a wheel.

Generally, a lateral grip of about 1.0 should do well. You can use others - these are just the ones I've used and produced satisfying results.

  • ALWAYS include the following (use pastebin or something similar to post the files):
    • ManualTransmission/Gears.log
    • ManualTransmission/settings_general.ini
    • ManualTransmission/settings_wheel.ini
    • What kind of inputs (wheel/controller/keyboard) you're using
    • What you already tried to do

  • Incompatibilities with other mods: Pinpoint the issue and provide logs.

Known bugs and problems
  • Wheel force feedback is too responsive or missing
    • Install one of the handling mods referred to above
    • Check "Anti-dead force" in force feedback menu: Reduce when too responsive, increase when not responsive enough
    • Use a LUT and dial down forces.

  • Wheel is not detected or doesn't work properly
    • Check if your drivers are up to date and the wheel works for other games
    • Check if some other program isn't using your wheel (x360ce, etc)
    • Check if the wheel is detected in Gears.log (in the ManualTransmission folder)
    • If using Steam: Fix: Steam Big Picture > Settings > Controller Settings > Uncheck Generic Gamepad Configuration Support (Found by Kaerali)
    • If after the Steam fix, it does show in the log file, but registering an input is still not effective, restart Steam and/or your computer
    • Try another USB port!

  • Camera doesn't behave as expected in VR
    • Developer options -> Compatibility settings -> Disable FPV camera

  • No traffic light textures in first person, just faint coronas
    • Caused by custom first person camera. Disable it in Misc options.
