Fanatec has been partnered with the GT World Challenge (formerly known as the Blancpain GT Series) for a …
Since the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Assetto Corsa Competizione released on console, there have been numerous reports of the game not recognizing a racing wheel.
From Logitech G920’s through to Thrustmaster TMX, this seems to be affecting a whole range of racing wheels.
Below is a fix to ensure your Logitech and Thrustmaster racing wheels are working with ACC on Xbox. This worked for us when we experienced this issue. And has been confirmed to work for a selection of other gamers.
Don’t connect your racing wheel. Instead use your regular controller to load up a practice session. Click drive to be sent out of the pits and then click start to go in to the menu.
Disconnect your controller by turning it off. The game should pop up saying controller disconnected.
Now, connect your racing wheel via USB to your console, and let the wheel calibrate itself.
Once the wheel has auto calibrated itself, click “A” on your steering wheel to close the “Controller disconnected” message. Then select your gamer profile.
Your wheel should now be recognised, and the steering and pedal inputs working. You may need to jump in to the controller menu to select racing wheel, and change your steering ratio to 900.
Then finally you will have to set up all of your inputs manually. Kunos haven’t given us any presets annoyingly. Just be sure to save your custom preset when you have it set up the way you like!
If you are still having issues with the wheel not working. Try unplugging it from the console, and reconnecting it. Doing this a couple of times seems to fix any glitches. Also ensure your controller pad is switched off while connecting your wheel.
You can reconnect your controller after your wheel is working to enable you to use headphones etc.
If you’re wheel is working but the force feedback is terrible, ensure you steering ratio is set to around 900. And not at 270.
Failing everything. Throw your G920 out of the window and buy a Fanatec wheel. Not a single issue has been reported with a Fanatec wheel. This isn’t the most cost effective solution, but it’ll certainly solve it! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
If you are that way inclined, here is a nice guide explaining why you should upgrade from your G29 / G920 to a Fanatec wheel.
If you manage to get your racing wheel working, and connected you may want to dial in the feeling with a custom set of force feedback settings. We have a complete guide for the best force feedback settings for every wheel.
