Why is Assetto Corsa Black and White?

Is your Assetto Corsa black and white? You surely know that this isn't how the game looks by default! Assetto Corsa is playable with its stunning graphics in beautiful colours. But don't worry, it's a slight, and common error that we can easily help you fix! It is black and white due to having the wrong settings, most likely.

Settings issue

Assetto Corsa has different post-processing filters that you can set, to make the game look as you want it to! Players reported issues in the past where the filters change on their own. There isn't much reasoning behind why this happens, but the bug is easy to solve!

To fix this issue, all you have to do is go to the game's settings, effects, and return the post-processing filter to default! And that should sort the issue out for you! However, if that doesn't fix the issue, you might want to tinker with the smoke and reflection settings.

Assetto Corsa isn't black and white, but it can be!
