    The Downshift Protection thingy is great in AC. I find myself pulling for downshifts early quite bit, so it's something I've learned to work around. What I wasn't expecting was the little warning that's appeared recently.

    For those who don't know it, a white triangle appears on the screen, and you get a little beep. The first time it happened to me, I wasn't expecting it and I ended up in the gravel because it made me jump. Does anyone know how to turn the warning and beep off? I'm fine with the DP if it's silent and in the background, just stopping me downshifting too early, but this is just distracting now - especially when it happens while I'm overtaking someone. I almost crashed into someone in the Rookies event last night because of it.

    The beep I don't mind because I'm used to it from another sim, but that ridiculous visual warning definitely needs to go. Had exactly the same problem as you last night, almost crashing because I wasn't expecting something to suddenly appear in the centre of my screen.

    Assetto Corsa/cfg/gameplay.ini

    [DOWNSHIFT_PROTECTION_NOTIFICATION]
    ACTIVE=1 ; 0 turns it all off, also in UI in options
    TIME_SHOW=2.2 ; 0 turns the image off, keeps the sound
    TIME_BLINKING=0.3

    Is in the video options, view tab."Display downshift protection notification".

    So it turns image off and keeps the sound, nice I'll try that now.

    I do not mind having it, I just wished they'd made it smaller and not put it so high up on screen...same with wheel lock-up indicator.

    It's very Minority Report in VR. I like it, lol.

    I genuinely thought it was a feature of the new RSR when I first took it out. :laugh:

    Why are these things always hidden away in an ini file? Only to get reset next time we do an integrity check! In game option please Kunos, thank you!

    That's there in the real car, we're just simulating that. :)
