The Assetto Corsa Competizione force feedback can be underwhelming. But with these Logitech G29 settings, ACC will feel as great as ever.
For beginners in the sim racing arena, the Logitech G29 is a brilliant entry-level wheel to start with. Its price places it firmly as one of the cheapest options around and many existing racers will attest to the product’s robustness and strength.
This beginner-friendly ethos means the G29 occupies a large portion of the sim racing market. Ask a racer what wheel they use, and the most likely answer will be this Logitech creation. With that in mind, many racers on Assetto Corsa Competizione will have this wheel. Here are our recommendations for running the Logitech G29 in ACC.
Logitech G Hub Guide
Before launching Assetto Corsa Competizione, it’s important for your wheel to have the right firmware. It is also necessary to perfect the in-software settings. In the case of the G29, this means going into the easy-to-use Logitech G Hub where you will find settings concerning your wheel.
Much simpler than other wheel software on the market, the page features just three main settings. The good news is that with our setting recommendations, your Logitech G29 should run smoothly on all games, not just ACC.
The most important setting is the wheel’s range. One must set the G29 to its maximum Lock of 900°. This will allow good range of motion in all games and should allow the game to line up automatically. Whilst it may seem obvious to set the Sensitivity to 100%, that would be wrong. 50% represents a one-to-one scale when it comes to in-game input. Finally, always turn Off the Centering Spring in simulation games.
ACC Logitech G29 Settings
Now that your wheel is up and running, it’s time to launch Assetto Corsa Competizione. From the get-go, you may struggle with force feedback in ACC as the game does have its quirks. Whilst many games make up for the loss of the ‘seat of the pants feel’ with FFB, ACC does not. Instead, all the standard force focuses on informing the driver of the front axle. Our settings do their best to change that.
First off, it is recommended to run a maximum of 85% Gain as anything over this will suffer from clipping at higher speeds. Elsewhere, the Minimum Forces slider increases low-end gain for more response. A 10% increase here feels good in slow turns. Some may like Damper settings, but we aren’t on that list. So for the Dynamic Damper, we recommend dropping to 0%. Finally for the FFB settings, Road Effects is a personal preference situation but we like 50%. If you want more or less of the road surface feel and vibration, raise or lower the figure accordingly.
On the Advanced portion of the page, you needn’t change much. Simply make sure the Steer Lock is identical to that in the Logitech G Hub, so 900° for us. As for Linearity and Gamma sliders, they aren’t particularly relevant to wheels to it’s best to drop them to the minimum.
Overall, these settings should make for a good sensation of the entire car. However, Force Feedback is inherently subjective. So you may want to tweak our settings until you truly feel comfortable.
