ETS 2 not detecting Logitech G29 steering wheel
Just tested my newly bought G29 (and pedals) and found out that the game isn't able to detect it. The game does give me the option of playing with pedals + mouse and keyboard, but still doesn't show any controllers in the input wizard. I also noticed that the input wizard controller section flickers between "No controller detected" and "detecting available controllers". I tried reinstalling ETS 2, reinstalling the Logitech driver and deleting the controls.sii file in the game's 'profile' directory, as those were the results of a quick Google search. None of these worked even though the driver and Steam big picture have no problem communicating with the wheel. Anyone else with the same problem?

Unchecking the "Generic Gamepad Configuration Support" (which I had enabled to address an issue with another game not detecting my gamepad) resolved the issue, and my Logitech Wheel and joystick were detected by ETS2 once more.

Have you the Steam Controller Config thing for non Steamcontrollers activated?
If so....try to disable it for the game....maybe that interferes somehow with the detection....or some other software.....had it on dirt rally that the wheel was not recognized because of other software which used an overlay..

Could you specify a bit? I have a Steam controller, but other than that, I don't know what you're talking about.

I mean this here https://www.howtogeek.com/234427/how-to-remap-buttons-on-your-steam-controller/ (would post the pic directly which i mean, but for sure steam would "censor" the link).
If that is turned on it might be overwriting the default values for detected gamepads (or other input devices) and might cause that some stuff is not detected by games as it should be.

Can also be turned off per game, but only in the BPM.

What position is the tiny PS3/PS4 switch in on top of hub of wheel near power LED?

In Linux I use PS3 position. I rarely run Windows, but when I briefly tried my G29 in Win7 I also used PS3 position, and that worked until I updated my graphics drivers and GeForce Experience interfered (I think something having to do with Nvidia Shield). Some people say to use PS4 position in Windows, but I have not tried that.

I had the same problem using the input wizard. I used the Logitech Gaming Software to confirgure the buttons anyway. Skip the input wizard and make sure the G29 is selected along with keyboard on the top of the Controls page and you should be fine.

Whether I used the PS4 or PS3 settings didn't seem to matter, but unticking the "Generic Gamepad Configuration Support" box got the game to detect the wheel and fixed the problem. Thanks a lot!

Logitech setup instructions do specify that the PS3/PS4 switch is in the PS4 position when using the G29 on a PC.

Where is the "Generic Gamepad..." tick box?

EDIT: nvm, found it under the Steam controller settings. My box was not checked and I still have the wizard issue. But, using the Logitech software for button assignment works, so I'm good.
