    Wasn't online supposed to get better with Patch 1.13?

    I honestly don't understand why people can't somehow figure out what that patch note means. A 0.001% change to the better is still a change that reduces the chance of being disconnected from a game session. The patch note is there to indicate that they've made some minor changes to their networking systems in order to have a bit more stability. It's not there to say 'ONLINE IS NOW FIXED' or anything ๐Ÿ™‚

    PC Forum Championship | Season Three

    Hmm. At least from my perspective we collided on the apex, with me having no space and you having the entirety of the track. At the moment of contact I just went straight on as I already got damage and didn't want to spin. The aftermath was my fault and sorry for that ๐Ÿ™‡โ€โ™‚๏ธ, but you from my view you didn't give me space when the initial collision happened Though I have to check the replay again later on E: Some 2AM updates as time passes. Here's also an image after the impact, which is what I want to point out so that you can also be more aware of the position you took while side by side with another driver. I think it's quite self explanatory that no space was given to me even though I was side by side coming into the corner. I was trying my best to back down, but it proved to be impossible as I just had no space. I'd still suggest you to either use the virtual rear view mirror or the proximity arrows I do think it's just a racing incident up until the impact, but I fully accept the blame for the aftermath as I literally just steered into you. I felt completely unbalanced, and combined with front wing damage from the impact, I felt like I would spin if I wouldn't countersteer and push both of us off the track. I just couldn't get the hang of the track and every single lap felt completely different to one another. One lap I could do a personal best on a sector, while next lap I'd be a second off it. All in all, a race to forget to me, and this is certainly something to try and learn about if I were to continue in the championship. I don't think there's anyone in the world that could be more angry at me than what I was to myself.

    F1 2020 Codemasters Anti Cheat Measures

    I'm not aware of any proper anti-cheat software being included with the game. The only way I've seen people get banned is a manual ban ๐Ÿ˜• Most complaints about the system are talking about the system that validates the game's files when going online. It doesn't ban a single person, only kicks them for "cheating" I'd expect most cheats to just modify the game's memory

    F1 2021 game

    DIRT 5 uses a newer and different engine than F1 2020 ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. It doesn't need the device, but it does need the Kinect for Windows API or its successor whatever name may that have (Microsoft Speech Platform according to the installer files?) Basically, the API used on Xbox doesn't support anything other than Kinect, while the PC version may've received significant updates along the years that have made it possible to use it without Kinect. (Still assuming the APIs would be the same) I believe F1 2015 didn't have speech recognition on PC without Kinect for some time. It could be that they either changed the Microsoft API they use, or the thing they used got an update. Though this is just speculation ๐Ÿ™‚
  7. The game doesn't officially support Xbox Series X as far as I know. The only build of the game not using Kinect Speech Recognition is the PS4 build ๐Ÿ™‚

    Patch 1.13 | Notes

    If you're on PC check that the F1 2020/audio/2020/speech folder includes the files of the language you want to use. At least up until this patch, the game only downloaded the files that are needed for you to play the game. For example I have the game set to Japanese on Steam, so I have en_ (English) and ja_ (Japanese) files.

    PC Forum Championship | Season Three

    That Japanese GP though... I had everything to lose and everything went wrong, from a car on an outlap crashing me out to pushing too hard in the race. Didn't think that I'd have my first quali and race retirements on the final weekend of the season ๐Ÿ˜… One more time congratulations to @kisuke_fly! You were able to control the pressure and get the race win and the championship... while I did the exact opposite and was forced to watch 23 laps of absolute dominance from you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Bought for third time: Unplayable Again

    When does the game freeze? Could you remove the hardware_settings_config.xml and try a race without modifying any graphical settings? I'm trying to understand what kind of issue you're encountering ๐Ÿ™‚

    Bought for third time: Unplayable Again

    There is nothing that's mentioning GRID in the driver description... for me at least Could you get me your hardware_settings_config.xml from My Documents\My Games\GRID 2019? You could also try removing it afterwards, as the game will create a new one if one doesn't exist. Can you also get me a dxdiag file? Here are the steps to launch the executable. Then just upload the file here. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/open-and-run-dxdiag-exe-dad7792c-2ad5-f6cd-5a37-bf92228dfd85

    Bought for third time: Unplayable Again

    Always install the latest NVIDIA drivers for your GPU, not the one that mentions the game you want to play. Newer drivers won't remove optimization for older games except if these are known for breaking things. There are hundreds of different things that could cause the game to crash on your system. The crash dump may be located in the AppData\Local\Temp folder. If the .zip file includes hardware_settings_config.xml, you've found a crash dump ๐Ÿ™‚ Here is a screenshot of a crash report. It may be from DR2.0, can't remember. E: I've also moved this to Technical Assistance.

    Bought for third time: Unplayable Again

    If the driver had GRID in its description. It's time to update your NVIDIA drivers at least, as these optimizations are done before the launch of the game. It is most likely a technical problem. I can take a look at the crash dump if you send it here and tag me ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cool! Also I'm imaging the whole thing with this on the background ๐Ÿ˜ I'll never be able to get this song out of my memory.

    Who invented the strict penalty system?

    People have forgotten over the years that the strict ruleset wasn't really meant to be realistic, it was meant to be strict (and thus not realistic as the stewards aren't strict for people extending track limits). It was introduced in one of the F1 2015 updates, and basically considered a "hardcore mode" back then. Somehow over the years people have started to think strict is somehow realistic and partly because of this, the community demanded it to be used in the new ranked mode that was introduced to the game couple of years back... If we would've just told them to modify the normal setting, we wouldn't be having this conversation! My suggestion is still to send feedback that the normal corner cutting setting is too lenient ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lack of AI mistakes and crashes

    We had AI on in the joker race at COTA (Forum Championship) and I started way back as I had no idea what the racing line was before joining the session. I was making some progress and the AI up front was significantly slower than I was. I wasn't even planning to overtake him on the start-finish straight, but I went on the outside and got in front of him even before we reached turn 1. The AI then decided to brake way too late and smash into me... Wasn't fun ๐Ÿ˜ Most of the time I see an AI making a mistake, it's me who'll be pitting at the end of the lap.

    F1 2016 Just had an update?

    I think multiple old games have gotten online related updates, such as security updates and such.

    2020 F1 Esports Fail

    Or you're just overcomplicating this. I'm just talking about the things I have something to say about. There is nothing for me to gain from complaining how bad the game is, there are already enough people saying that ๐Ÿ˜› I was just wondering if the issues they encountered where on their side, instead of the game side, as the article didn't mention what issues they encountered. I feel like that's the only thing I'd realistically care about, as most of my replies on these forums are troubleshooting game crashes and the such. Also, I think this is a definition of a personal argument. If you got more, send them through private messages.

    Qualifying or Race

    At least in terms of the Forum Championship, I think I'm pretty balanced in terms of performance in quali and in the race, but I have to vote for race as I'm good at keeping the tires alive much longer than what the game wants me to ๐Ÿ˜

    2020 F1 Esports Fail

    I'm just here talking about the article and the choice of words in it, while also explaining what I mean with the stuff I've mentioned (as my original reply was just thoughts without explaining basically anything I've said). If you have something to say, you can join the conversation me and janbonator are having. You don't need to join in if the only thing you're going to do is accuse me of whatever. This isn't supposed to be some bloody argument, stop trying to make it one.

    2020 F1 Esports Fail

    Drivers are just a single thing that's the easiest one to explain to people, that may not have the same knowledge about games as I do ๐Ÿ™‚ Anything on your computer could cause an issue later on, for one random reason or another. Like my F1 game longer accepts keyboard inputs while saving a setup. This started happening with no updates to the game, so it's something on my side. I'm just unsure what it may be, I'm guessing an update to the Microsoft IME that just breaks the compatibility with the game (...again?). Then there is TF2, which stopped working in fullscreen for unknown reasons, even though it ran completely fine just some hours earlier. Finally got it working after an hour of troubleshooting, and I'm not sure what caused that either. I only have guesses. Those are two examples of errors being caused by dependencies with no idea what actually caused them. Those less experienced with troubleshooting would just blame the game, even if the game would be the same it was before you encountered anything! This is why having 20 clean machines that are running the exact same minimal software tends to be significantly better than anyone running the game on their computer... especially as competitive people tend to have different things installed to improve their performance, even if that would hurt the stability of their system.

    STILL no performance patch

    I've locked this thread as we already have an ongoing discussion over here ๐Ÿ™‚
