    Hi guys, I am pretty new in Assetto Corsa. I recently bought the game + dreampack dlc and I just don't know what this little box icon means above the throttle.
    Please clear things up for me :) and hello @ all.

    I could be wrong, but doesn't it show green to indicate that you have the full range of the pedal, and red if you don't?

    Yeah, as soon as your throttle pedal hits 100% it goes green, so you know your pedal works.

    the right side bar shows the FFB force. If it goes red, it means your FFB is 'clipping' and you are losing details. You can use this to lower your FFB settings to get the best out of it.

    Nope, he already had full throttle once, then it stays green.

    Thank you guys so much, I thought something is wrong with my game because in all videos I watched, nobody had this little indicator.
    Now I know that it is clearly me, who is still too slow and nothing else :D

    I'm sorry but the OP asked what the little box above the throttle pedal meant. Not the FFB clipping meter. :thumbsup:


    Now we know thanks to Joao.

    I've never noticed the green above the throttle position. So should I see it say when leaving the pits before I use full throttle? Never seen it red either. Good to know about the right hand bar, always thought it was suspension hitting its bump stops thus the car was too stiff for the track.
