Logitech G29 button mapping best practices

I'm brand new to using a wheel, got myself a brand new Logitech G29 set, just wheel and pedals, no shifter yet, maybe around Christmas time and no handbrake. First of all, I expected that a basic mapping is provided automatically for most of the games but maybe apart from ACC it didn't happen. In fact, no matter how I tried in Assetto Corsa, even acceleration didn't work. When I loaded into the car (standard AC car on a standard track), throttle was on 100% and when I stepped on the gas, it went down to 0%... so yeah, no luck yet. I completely uninstalled AC and removed the mods, too, so I have now a vanilla install, didn't have time to test it again. I didn't have this issue with any other game.

With all the different options the game provides, I don't have a good feel for a decent mapping beyond the basics as in accelerate, brake, clutch and shifting up and down. If anyone could give some ideas, what makes sense to map specifically in the G29 and which button, I'd be thankful. I will have to actually write up for myself on a piece of paper which button is mapped to which function in which game, so that I don't forget it
:)
The button names in the game settings don't really translate well into the visual, so I have no idea what cryptic name is assigned for example to R2 etc.

The games I have and looking for suggestions; Assetto Corsa, Assetto Corsa Competizione, Automobilista, Automobilista 2, Dirt Rally, Dirt Rally 2.0, Dirt 4, Project Cars, Project Cars 2 and RaceRoom. I also plan to get rFactor 2 during the Black Friday sales.

Any suggestions for must have things, screenshot of the mapping etc. would be super helpful!
Thank you!!!

The G29 pedal values are inverted so they read high when they are not pressed and low when fully pressed. You should be able to select an option in AC to invert the values back to what is expected though.

For the other buttons, I just manually assign them per game, but I tend to only have a few mapped as I usually drive in VR so it's tricky to hit the right buttons anyway. e.g for AC I have:

Triangle: reset HMD position
Circle: PTT (e.g teamspeak)
Cross: menu

D-Pad up: brake bias front
D-Pad down: brake bias rear
D-Pad left: clutch (just for starts - I only have two pedals connected due to my rig)

I don't think I ever managed to map the dial sensibly in AC
 
Thank you!

reset HMD position

I assume this is VR-specific based on a quick Google search, right? If so, it makes my life easier, I don't have VR :)

Yeah, AC being inverted, I just figured that out the other day. I even reinstalled the whole game to try to fix it LOL Anyways, even after inverting the pedal values I still couldn't even drive a singe cm/inch (whatever your preference is). I use the G29 pedals, so I do have a 3rd pedal but no separate shifter, just the flappy pedals on the wheel. Do I need to use the clutch to get the car moving? AC is the only sim I couldn't get the car moving :confused:
