Reiza Studios never seem to stop working over the weekends, with Automobilista 2 Update V126.96.36.199 released while most of us were busy sim racing.
The release adds more changes and improvements. But the accompanying notes acknowledge a conflict with the latest Logitech G Hub software which causes the game to crash at start up. A temporary workaround will hopefully arrive in the next few days, but in the meantime you’ll need to either uninstall G Hub, or roll back to the previous 2021.3 version and disable auto-updates if you want to play Automobilista 2 with a G29, G920 or G923.
