The Logitech G29 is a great entry-level wheel capable of setting fast lap times in Assetto Corsa Competizione.
Unfortunately, the Logitech G29’s LED Shift-Indicator lights sometimes do not work right with Assetto Corsa Competizione out of the box.
Here is a quick fix to help fix the G29 shift lights in Assetto Corsa Competizione.
It is time to Shift Gears
The Logitech G29 has built-in LED shift lights located on the top of the wheel’s spokes. These LEDs light up progressively as the car’s RPMs rise in-game.
Knowing when to shift is crucial when racing for mere tenths of a second. Shifting gears too early in Assetto Corsa Competizione can cause your car to bog and lose power on acceleration. Shifting gears too late can also cause the car to bounce off of the rev-limiter, leading to a slower race pace.
Racing is a high-intensity activity that requires 100% of a driver’s concentration. The G29’s shift indicators are a helpful indicator that is small enough to be unobtrusive and non-distracting while racing.
How to Fix Logitech G29 Shift-lights in Assetto Corsa Competizione
In most cases, a non-working G29 shift light can be fixed with a simple reinstallation of the Logitech G Hub Software. However, if the problem persists even after reinstallation, you might want to try this instead.
