    Question [RESOLVED] My games won't recognize Logitech G29 wheel, pedals or shifter

    First of all, I am exhausted from trying, but I won't give up, as I look here for additional help.

    I am new here, so thanks for having me, very much appreciated. I installed Project CARS 1 on my PC today, and connected my Logitech G29, pedals and gearshifter. Windows installed the necessary drivers, it turns up in Device Manager, and in Control Panel > Devices and Printers. Windows recognizes it as it automatically calibrates the wheel. I have set the hardware button to "PS4", and I can even calibrate the wheel in Properties. I've also installed the latest version of Logitech Gaming Software and the correct wheel shows up there, and I can map the buttons on it. I've tried connecting it to both USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports.

    But no games registers the wheel.

    I first tried Euro Truck Simulator 2 but my wheel isn't listed in the settings, then I installed and went into Project Cars, and while I can navigate the menus because I mapped the buttons in Logitech Gaming Software, nothing else works. I've chosen G29 seperated pedals in Options but neither wheel nor pedals or shifter works when I go into a race. I've tried calibrating in the game but it doesn't register the wheel or pedals, and I've tried assigning throttle, brake and clutch to my pedals but that doesn't work either.

    I went on to completely uninstall and install the drivers and Logitech Gaming Software, and I even tried only connecting the wheel after I started up Project Cars but that didn't work either.

    So I am not only exhausted, but also really at a point where I don't know what to do, to get my games to recognize my Logitech G29. I hope some of you experts on here can help me out or come up with suggestions I could try out next. Thank you for reading through my post and putting aside a little time for this issue.

    Go into Steam and into the settings, look under controller and make sure to untick all the stuff in the General Controller settings..

    (then go onto the Steam forums and tell Valve they are a bunch of *********)

    Goddamn, that is at the brink of hilarious. Silly Valve.

    That made my wheel and pedals work. I could calibrate everything.
