  1. Extremely slow server response. USA Midwest region. Been kicked off a few times. PS4 free game and I finally convinced my buddy to get it, and he can't play or join with me. Too bad.

    Announcing F1 2015

    I would also prefer to discuss F1 here, but what is there to discuss?  There is no new info unfortunately. Regarding Project Cars, I got it yesterday on PS4 and once I got the hang of the handling its the best I've experienced.  Excellent road feel (even with a pad).  I was expecting extreme difficulty, but that wasn't the case.  Abuse the accellerator and you'll pay, but if your smooth you'll succeed.  I completely disagree with the comparison to Gran Turismo.  Doesn't feel anything like it.  Unfortunately, online was full of the usual rammers.

    Announcing F1 2015

    Project cars looks great, but every video I've watched for PS4 gameplay shows poor steering controls.  If you watch the steering wheel in gameplay vids, it looks like the driver is yanking hard left and right, instead of gradual turning.  To me this is a sign of arcade controls.  I really hope I'm wrong though since everything else I've seen looks great.

    Announcing F1 2015

    With all due respect, if you don't have just over an hour to dedicate to a game a couple of times a week, why do you even own a gaming system? Like you must have at least a spare hour and a half at some point at least once a week, surely? Although I do agree, we should be able to change distance Fair point, but its way more than one hour if what I've read so far is correct.  If Pro mode sets everything to max then 3 practice sessions, 3 qualies and race is about 3 hours if you set up your car in one practice, skip the others and do a lap in each quali session (which is two laps minimum including the drive out).  If it was just the race, I could handle that.  3 hours is a long time for each race.  The time is probably conservative considering I'll likely need several extra laps in the quali as I'm not a perfect driver. In 2013 I'd do some of the practice setting up my car, do one flying lap in each quali since it let you skip through most of it, then 25% race.  That was about an hour give or take.

    Dedicate yourself to your wife, kids and life then

    Announcing F1 2015

    I don't want to do full races, and also don't want arcade racing like 90% of other driving games out there.  I'd like to have the option to set up the game the way I want.  Pro Season mode forcing 100% races is a major downer.  Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have time to do 100% races, but wife & kids & life....
  7. All my questions are about the F1 and Dirt but welcome to the team.  I hope you can help Codemasters get turned around.

    A Goodbye

    I believe that a good 2015 F1 game that is free of bugs will nearly erase all the frustration that goes on in these forums once its released.  Until then, the frustration builds and most speculation about the game will be negative especially considering the lack of information thats been shared.

    announcement date?

    Here's my opinion for what its worth: 2014 was full of games being released half finished.  The game industry as a whole has taken a hit to their reputation.  Companies are trying to rectify this by polishing games prior to release, which means delays.  Added to this the inferred corporate shake up at Codemasters, and you have a game that is behind schedule.  Not only that, but a direct competitor, Project Cars, is releasing in May (after several delays) which may cause a marketing problem.

    Such is the internet, full of people who can sit behind their computers hurling insults.  Doubt they would have the guts to do it face to face.  Its not any different at other message boards for other games though.

    How much more can we endure?

    With all the "pre-order" crap going on these days, game companies are feeding on the impatience of gamers.  I made the decision last year to not pre-order anything anymore.  In fact, I wait until after a game is out and then read reviews prior to buying.  Its saved me from a lot of crap games already.  Reading user reviews takes some skill too, since you have to look out for ranting (for and against) the game.  The ranting usually involves over-exaggeration of facts by the user who's pissed off about some issue that may not even apply to me.  From what I can tell from this years F1 game, the biggest problem is an imbalance between the pad and wheel users.  Still might buy the F1 2014 game but F1 2013 still have some life in it for me, so I can still get my F1 fix.

    A Simulation & The Assist Solution: F1 2015

    Codemasters F1 games have never been simulations.  Even with all assists off.  Their games have be arcade with some sim aspects ( or "simcade").  I don't want them have to concentrate on making two games in one package to appease the sim crowd.  Just make one game that works on release day, and is balanced between pad and wheel users.

    Newbie- Grid Autosport Query

    I don't think there are any servers in Grid Autosport.  Its a peer to peer connection with one console being the host.  Could be wrong though
  14. You press the button to bring up the menu as if you are going to change fuel mix,  tires should be one of the choices

    F1 2014 Tyre Glitch

    Count me as one who feels this is NOT a glitch.  if you failed R&D test then you are put back on the tires you initially chose.  
  18. Turn on traction control assist.  (I know, your pride will take a hit, but until the patch this is a quick fix)

    Pace times AI Legend vs Expert

    That's just one track.  more testing is needed before patching the AI.  four seconds at Malaysia is a lot different than four seconds at Brazil

    Understeer city on the pad...

    Have you increased the front wing?  I'm just wondering if Codemasters actually corrected the settings so that 1-1 does not work at every track now.

    F1 2014 Feedback Thread

    There were some threads about the game being too difficult for people.  So Codies listened to those people and made it easier.  The gamble Codies took is that there are more casual pad racers than "hardcore".  Unfortunately, for people like myself either need to get a wheel or up the difficulty.

    F1 2014 Wheel Spin with Little Throttle

    I read some posts that indicate wheelspin can be minimized by lean fuel setting.  Worth a try to switch prior to the problem corners and see what happens.

    A Step Forward

    Whats funny is every year a CM F1 game comes out, the forums fill with praise and hatred and its hard to determine if either or both is warranted.  There is no way to tell what system and controller the user is playing on/with unless they say it in their post.  I think it would be helpful if all users had their system info displayed so we could determine if the problems are with a certain console or controller. Eg. Some are saying more wheelspin than last year, and some compare this game to Mario Cart.  Both might be right!  More spin with a wheel, and on rails with pad?  Confusing...
