The first update has arrived from Kunos Simulazion in 2022 with Assetto Corsa Competizione Hotfix 1.8.9 released. It’s a fairly small download for the GT World Challenge-based racing sim, covering off a few fixes. But it could help to make the game much more accessible for a bigger number of PC gamers.
The two interesting changes are that a 100Hz legacy option for FFB frequency has been added for people using older wheels, and there’s a potential fix for compatibility issues if you’re using an older GPU in your computer. So some people who may have had problems playing or enjoying Assetto Corsa Competizione will now be able to give it another try. And while it’s inevitability a challenge for any developer to try and make their game work perfectly for everyone, it’s always good to see them trying to let the widest possible range of people enjoy their efforts.
Aside from that, there are some small fixes for pitlane status, opponent invisibility and the user interface.
Obviously the PC-specific elements won’t be carried across to any future console version updates, but the UI changes and fixes might be integrated into a future release.
