Assetto Corsa Competizione

For race fans that may never have the opportunity to jump behind the wheel of a supercar (such a I), Assetto Corsa Competizione released last week for PC on Steam early access.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/8..._Competizione/

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDwvKqlVo1Y

The game is getting strong reviews for not being a Forza or Gran Turismo title. Please post you Steam username if you want to play; I need some competition!

I think it will be a great sim but for me the best thing about AC was the historic content and touring cars. GT3s just aren't particularly exciting or challenging to drive on a sim. Surely a modern sports car sim needs a Le Mans license and prototype categories?

For me, "ACC" is not a patch on Assetto Corsa. The car handling just isn't the same, which is a shame.

Great news for console owners who want to try ACC. British GT DLC later this year too.

Badlands99 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Okay, for someone who grew up way before computers were thought of I guess that I am coming to this a little late!
But with the current worldwide situation and a bit of time on my hands for the foreseeable future, the thought of getting into the world of sim racing appeals ........
The downside is that I have very limited ideas of what is required.

I use a 2015, 27''iMac rather than a PC and cannot justify replacing it.

So, my question to those of you who understand these things ......... can I download Assetto Corsa Competizione and play it on my iMac - if so what's the best way to do that - and what would the best (not the most expensive) wheel and pedal combination be?

Thanks in advance for any reply .............

Assetto Corsa Competizione can be made to run on Mac hardware, but not OSX. You would need to use the Bootcamp facility to create a seperate partition with windows installed and it boots into either windows or osx as you wish. Provided you have hard drive spare space, this can be done with no loss of data.

At the bottom of this post is the minimum and recommended hardware specs. I think it would run ACC. It would also run rfactor2, the original Assetto Corsa which has lots of cars to download, Project Cars amongst others.

Best pedal / wheel combo. Best is hard to define. Pedals which use load cells are better as they sense brake pressure rather than measuring pedal travel. Steering wheels with higher torque motors are generally more realistic and belt driven force feedback is better than geared. Direct drive is assumed to be the best.. Depends how much you want to spend...

Cheapish and cheerful - Logitech G29
Midrange - the more expensive ones from the Thrustmaster range.
Next tier up - Fanatec
Top level - Heusinkveld, Leo Bodnar, etc.,

A lot of experienced people often find the Fanatic stuff being the sweet spot - but its an investment, so suggest getting a cheaper wheel and pedal combination as that could be rehomed for no or little loss later on, if you decide that you like it.

MINIMUM:
Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 7 64-bit Service Pack 1
Processor: Intel Core i5-4460 or AMD FX-8120
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Graphics: GeForce GTX 460 2GB, Radeon HD 7770
DirectX: Version 11
Storage: 50 GB available space
Sound Card: Integrated

RECOMMENDED:
Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 10 64-bit
Processor: Intel Core i5-8600K or AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
Memory: 16 GB RAM
Graphics: GeForce GTX 1070 8 GB, Radeon RX 580 8GB
DirectX: Version 11
Storage: 50 GB available space
Sound Card: Integrated

I don't think a 2015 iMac would have a GPU capable of running ACC unfortunately. Which GPU do you have?

The digging I did suggested it could possibly have a Nvidia GeForce GTX 775M, or a AMD Radeon R9 chipset, both with 2Gb ram.

Both seem to be slightly higher spec than the minimum listed.

Possibly not enough video memory to run Assetto Corsa Competizione.

It is sufficient to run the original Assetto Corsa or rFactor 2 if you fancy trying online racing.

Andrew,

Thanks for taking the time advise .........
Might give AC a go and then work up to ACC when I can justify the

Stay safe ..............

you can't play ACC on mac..
you could in a virtual windows machine on mac .. but it's unlikely it will be enough to play it properly
maybe standard Assetto

probably the basic wheel worth getting is a Logitech G29/G920 .. list price seems a bit high, you could try an used one for much less of course

In the UK the G29/G920 can be found online for around 180 from most places.
