[Guide] Add G29 and G920 support to Grid Autosport (Includes Clutch and shifter)
Introduction
The user karolos in the logitech forums[forums.logitech.com] has posted a very simple method to fix this problem that the developers in Codemaster haven't solve in several months. The solution is very simple and implies only modify an XML file. I was trying an other method to make it work (vjoy + ujr method) but this is better because you don't need to install aditional software.

This method also works on Grid 2 and pherhaps in other Codemasters games

Procedure
First, open the file "lg_g27.xml" inside the "input" folder where Grid Autosport its installed:

Example: C:\Program Files\Grid Autosport\Input\lg_g27.xml

Make a backup of this file.

next, replace the contents inside of this file with the code below depending on the Wheel you have (G29 or G920) and save.

Try it

Now, Start the game and go to the preset options (options->controller->presets) and select <LNG_LOGITECH_G29>

Now you can personalize the G29 or G920 as you like, the shifter works with the clutch now (remember to change the transmission dificulti to H shifter + clutch)

All the buttons worked correctly with my g920 except for the accelerator pedal, the game simply does not recognize di_slider_0, wanted to know if you have a fix or this
Wanda Jul 9, 2016 @ 3:11pm 
Thx but Clutch dont work, and i can't customize buttons either. :/
daveflatline Aug 30, 2016 @ 8:11am 
Works great for Grid 2. Thank you!
Dan2312 Sep 4, 2016 @ 2:29pm 
I did all this for my g920 and the game does not detect the wheel, all i get is a rear view of my car and pedals are messed up. menu constantly scrolling down. just a royal pain in the♥♥♥♥♥ its a shame because i enjoyed this game oin the 360 controller.

Edit: im such a fool i have a g29 not a 920. just need to get the h shifter working now...

Unfortunately this did not work for me and the only other preset I see besides 360 controller and keyboard is preset1 which does nothing.

Any help for me?
Odaglas Nov 25, 2016 @ 1:23pm 
everything works now except the clutch. The game cant recognize the clutch pedal. After i change the gear mode to manual + clutch, the clutch key appears on the controls but when i press it to try to assign the pedal to the clutch, it remains unassigned. any idea??

Hi Guys,

I've figured out the complete solution for G29, with clutch and everything.
Here you can download the XLM files and the simple instructions.
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0ByTzOjXwNNxSSFhjeVJ0R2ctekU

For G920 you can find hints how to solve the issue in the readme.txt,
but I do not own one, so can not do it for you :)

I hope it helps! ENJOY!:)

Stop lying mate, your solution is just the same as OPs.

Stop lying mate, your solution is just the same as OPs.

You should check your facts on this "mate". I do not know who "OP" is, I figured this solution out on my own, believe or not, please read the readme.txt to learn how. I do not doubt that somebody else found it as well, it's not magic, but I doubt that the files are the same, since I spent hours to figure out the right codes, making the clutch and everything work.

Please respect my work and stop trolling "mate".
FrizFrow Dec 11, 2016 @ 10:23pm 
Hal900 is right, the text files are different, just have a quick question, does anyone know if i can play on multiplayer if i edit text files?

I have followed your instructions till the last letter and the clutch is still not recognised. Effectively making your solution as OPs.

My clutch does not work, even with your solution. Can you help me? I have a g29 and everything is fine, the gearbox looks good, but it does not take the clutch pedal

Same issue here with G29 clutch pedal not working. Did anyone get this sorted out?

I've tried various methods of editing the xml files and/or copying over a file from DiRT Rally (including the posts above), and eventually got everything working with the G29+pedals+shifter...

...but the clutch pedal is simply listed as "unassigned" in the controls settings, and isn't detected by the game if I try to map it.

I've even tried using Pinnacle Game Profiler, but that doesn't pick up the clutch either, so I can't map it to a keypress using that. I know the clutch pedal works though, as it's working in other games + the Windows game controllers properties page.

Grateful for any further advice from anyone who got it working. Thanks!


EDIT: Oh, I also tried changing "di_slider_0" to "di_slider_1" on the Clutch line of the xml. This made an entry appear in the controls/settings of the game, but the pedal still didn't work once I started a race.


EDIT 2: I now realise that the game doesn't seem to be saving my settings (even though everything is working, except the clutch). When I quit, then restart the game, the "Difficulty" settings revert to "Automatic" transmission, and any custom mappings I've made in the controls reset to defaults. So I have to map them all each time by the looks of it.

Quick update on progress configuring G29 with the game... since I've now got it to save my settings between sessions, though I still haven't got the clutch pedal working.

- First, I restored everything to how it was originally (removed the xml edits to files in "input")

- I launched the game, and selected "keyboard" preset in the control options (I saw a suggestion that this is a good workaround for the game losing controls settings when you exit)

- I then mapped my wheel + pedals + buttons as desired in the controls options (except for Pause, which I left as the Esc key... not sure if this actually made the difference to it saving settings, as I saw it mentioned somewhere online)

- After mapping the wheel like that, you can even access the advanced options (deadzone/saturation) & setup vibration


This seems to be a much easier way than messing with xml files (and I wasn't sure if there were any VAC implications with doing that, so better peace of mind).


The only problems remaining are...

- I can't control the game menus with the wheel, but I could setup some mappings for the d-pad etc. in Logitech's LGS (on-screen prompts obviously wouldn't change though)

- I still can't get the game to detect the clutch pedal, so I'm stuck with sequential gears, or H-shift without the clutch


As mentioned above, I've tried Pinnacle Game Profiler & it didn't seem to detect the clutch either (though I don't really know how to use PGP very well, so I may have missed something there!)

Anyone know of any (safe / VAC-friendly) apps/tools/utils that might detect the clutch pedla & allow me to remap it to another axis or key press?
YorkyPudsy Apr 29, 2017 @ 4:20am 
OK, I've finally got the G29 clutch pedal working. Some more info for anyone coming to this thread in the future...


The clutch pedal *can* actually be mapped to eg. a keypress using "Pinnacle Game Profiler". And then you simply define that key as the clutch in the game's settings.

PGP wasn't detecting the clutch when I tried before. But the trick was to go through the controller setup wizard. I defined the G29 as a controller with 4 Axes (3 pedals all on "inverted" axes, plus the wheel on the X axis). Then PGP's mapping screen detected each pedal correctly, including the clutch, so I just setup a blank PGP profile & added a single mapping for that to press SPACEBAR in zone 2 of an axis command.

I haven't yet experimented with mapping the clutch to some other analog input that the game might be able to detect (because PGP wants to install game "hooks" to support that, and I don't trust it with VAC).


Anyway, after all that effort, to be honest the game's clutch simulation is poor (eg. no fluffed gear changes, because you can select a gear on the shifter, then as soon as you depress the clutch it changes gear! That's without even releasing the clutch button/pedal)

So it's kind of disappointing. I don't know if the game might handle it more realistically if I could map it to an analog input. And either way, I won't have access to Gear 7 as the shifter only has 6+Reverse, so I'll end up having to tune cars ignoring 7th.

I may be better off forgetting about the clutch & just sticking to sequential shifting. Maybe even setup a rubber-band mod on the G29 shifter to use it for sequential shifting.
