    Logitech G920 and F1 2020

    During the flashback sequence, when you're able to rejoin, it should say what button to use. From memory, I believe it's the "X" button (on Xbox).

    Logitech G920 and F1 2020

    I just use the default mappings with my G920, and don't have any issue. Only exception being that I moved the brake pedal input to my clutch pedal (easier with my rig). Is it just that you're trying to activate a flashback, but don't know how? I trigger flashbacks from the pause menu.

    Racing Rigs - Share Yours!

    @Lurtz Congrats! The setup looks great. Let us know how you like it. I hope it brings you as much joy as mine has for me.

    Racing Rigs - Share Yours!

    I have the Playseat F1, and I think it's fantastic. I don't have many opportunities to play for very long in one sitting, but on the occasion where I am able to play for a couple hours I am never left feeling sore or fatigued. Quite the opposite actually - I wish I could play for longer at the end of a session. It's comfortable, and really does give a great sense of immersion (as I'm sure most rig setups would). Prior to the rig I had my wheel mounted to a TV tray that I would slide in front of the couch. That was fine, but the experience was dramatically changed after I got the rig. You feel like you're in the car, it's solid, and the fact my eye-line was much lower in combination with sitting closer to the television actually really helped with on-track car placement. The sense of enjoyment when playing a racing game improved dramatically when I first got my wheel, and I would say that sense of enjoyment was duplicated when I experienced my rig for the first time too. My only real complaint is that the seat doesn't breathe, so my back is usually sweaty at the end of a session.

    New Logitech wheel (G923)

    Ha! Not sure why I wrote monitor. I meant keyboard. Vacation is coming at the end of the month - clearly not soon enough 🙃 Appreciate your honesty about the issues you had with TM. Encouraging to hear that TM have seemingly sorted things out over the years. And belt driven wheels do sound appealing, but, again, I don't really know what I'm missing. The shifter is less important to me as I also don't have one with my G920. My whole rig (Playseat F1, G920, Xbox One, 55" TV) is pretty much solely for CM's F1 games, so I'd really only want paddles anyway. It is appealing to me to get the 'latest and greatest' model (albeit maybe not the "greatest" compared to others) that LG has to offer as opposed to an older model from somewhere else. That said, there's still time before G923 is released so I'll do my due diligence reading up on TM in the meantime. I'll also be paying close attention to the reviews of G923 from actual sim racers after it's released.

    New Logitech wheel (G923)

    LG's new wheel is quite timely for me. I'm also committed to Xbox, and have been running the G920 for years without a single issue. That said, just recently I started to notice the downshift paddle isn't registering my input 100% of the time. So far the problem has been mostly a rare occurrence, but it does seem to be slowly happening more and more. So that's been getting me to think about a replacement. I initially had dreams of going all in by upgrading to Fanatec. I have eyes for the formula rim, but at the end of the day I just can't get myself to justify the cost for such limited Xbox functionality. Not to mention the groaning I've heard in regard to the ease of use from a 'joystick' selector versus a conventional d-pad. A small detail and something I'm sure people get accustomed to, but still... I can't really justify a DD base either since I'm not some elite, eSports level, sim racing guru. The pedals sound like they're great, but is it really worth the cost just so I can have favorable pedals with a less than ideal wheel and base...? Lastly, the nail in the coffin for Fanatec was all the horror stories/posts/messages I found about hardware and software issues coupled with poor customer service. Yes, I know people are more likely to post something negative than they are to post something positive, but the sheer quantity of it all really shook me from considering Fanatec any further. At this price point the product should be rock solid, and the customer service should be nothing short of exceptional. Long story short, unless someone here can offer a compelling argument, I am not coming up with a good enough reason for me to go away from LG. I've never used a Fanatec or Thrustmaster setup before, so I don't know what I'm missing in terms of "feel" or "feedback." My old G25 and current G920 have been simple to use (truly plug and play), and have each given me countless hours of trouble free gaming (current intermittent issue aside). The price is right (comparatively), I'd have peace of mind from a history of reliability, and even if something were to go wrong LG has given me white gloved customer service in the past (issue with a computer monitor). The cherry on top would be if the G923 did end up being a bit more compatible with Xbox/CM games (ie- rev light, 'Trueforce', function from all/more buttons, rotary dial support).

    MyTeam: Potential for best car?

    Just a curiosity that I'm hoping Codemasters can shed some light on... In MyTeam I assume it's possible to make our car the best car overall, right? If yes, and since we're starting with basically the worst car on the grid, I'm curious about the scaling of our R&D upgrades compared to the other teams. All things being equal, after several seasons all teams would presumably have a completely maxed out car, but ours would have somehow surpassed all other teams along the way. So does that mean our R&D upgrades are more powerful than the upgrades the other teams have? Do the other teams simply not have as many upgrades available to them? Or ...? Unless my initial assumption is incorrect (would be good to know if that's the case!), then I understand it really doesn't matter how the other teams scale compared to us. Nevertheless, I would be interested to know how it all works. Thanks in advance.

    DAS coming to F1 2020?

    The FIA actually approved its use for 2020, but banned any team from using it from 2021 onward.

    Wheel x controller

    It's certainly more natural, to me, using a wheel, but there are many very competitive players that use a pad. So is the car easier to control, and is it easier to drive without assists while using a wheel? That's not really possible for us to predict when it comes to you. It's entirely on the player, and how much time/dedication they want to give the game. For me, like I say, it's more of a natural feeling using the wheel. I was able to sit down with the wheel, and pretty quickly put in some relatively competitive times compared to what I did with the pad. However, to be fair, I didn't dedicate a lot of time practicing with the pad. For all I know my lap times could have come down quickly with a pad, and it's possible I could have been even faster with a pad. But that's not reason enough to invest in a wheel. I bought my wheel and rig purely from wanting to have fun with the game - I didn't do it to chase lap times. I don't have a lot of time to grind away chasing every tenth of a second over a lap. I just want to play, get enjoyment from the experience, and that's what the wheel gave me above all. Not that you are, but I see a lot of people ask if using a wheel will make them faster and I don't necessarily think it will. Will you have a better sense of immersion with a wheel, and will the game be more enjoyable? I believe so.

    Cool down lap added to game

    For me there would need to be a good reason to drive it. The formation lap at least allows you to do several things that benefit your race (ie- practice your race start, warm the tires and brakes, etc.), but what would the ROI be for the cool down lap? A few extra resource points isn't worth it to me. So I vote "no". Make it an option for those that want to take the extra time? Don't care; makes no difference to me. All that said, I think there are far more impactful things that Codemasters should spend their time developing compared to a cool down lap. A cool down lap, to me, is along the same vein as building in red flags, or, worse yet, player vehicle malfunctions that would prevent you from completing a race. I don't get it. This is a player focused racing game, so why would they build in features to slow you down from, or entirely prevent you from racing? I see people mentioning "immersion", but, again, I think there are plenty of other things Codemasters could do to improve immersion while keeping the player engaged. Just my two cents.

    RSB and LSB not working

    My apologies, @BarryBL. Understood about the change of priorities. I'll keep an eye out for another update after these turbulent times have passed. Thank you, and I/we appreciate your prompt reply, in the meantime.

    RSB and LSB not working

    @BarryBL Bump, and following-up to the question/clarification @Duelcoot asked - is this an issue that may only be resolved in future titles? Should we expect that nothing will be done for F1 2019?

    Wheel mount and setup

    I use a Logitech G920 with my XB1. As others have mentioned, it's not the best option in the world, but it certainly more than gets the job done for a 'casual' gamer like myself. I previously had it mounted to a TV tray that I would use while sitting on my couch. That worked just fine for a long time, but then, in a moment of weakness, I found myself having purchased a Playseat F1 rig. As I said, the couch/TV tray setup worked well, but the Playseat rig, far more than I thought it would, changed the whole gaming experience in the best possible way. The mix of basically sitting on the ground in combination with the 'cockpit style' driving position gave me a tremendous amount of immersion that was previously absent. The most unexpected benefit from my eye-line now being more toward the bottom of my television screen, as opposed to toward the top, was the near immediate ability to better place the car on track (ie- more confidence getting closer to track limits, walls, etc.). Upon personal reflection, my recommendation to anyone is not to get too caught-up in gaming equipment - especially if you think it will make you a better gamers, and even more so if it means overextending yourself financially. It's all really quite frivolous, and honestly not worth it at the end of the day (with exceptions, of course). However, that being said and 'adulting' aside, I get a lot of enjoyment out of my setup, and only wish I could use it more. I get a chance 2-3 times a month on average to use it - haven't had a chance at all in the past 2 months. The return on investment for me was worth it in more ways than it wasn't, but that's my own personal situation. Just bear in mind that you can't purchase lap time - practice makes perfect, and with enough of it you can be among the best in the world with the equipment you already have. It's an old picture (hence F1 2018...), but here's a picture of my setup [G920, XB1 S, Playseat F1, 65" LG OLED Television]. I put the rig on felt pads so I can easily slide it out of the way when I'm done with it:

    Hubert in F2 2019

    Honestly not trying to be insensitive here - I get why some people would have mixed feelings about it, but no one seemed to care this much with Codies using Senna's likeness in the game... I understand one is a lot more of an open wound right now, but, in principal, they're the same. I personally think it's great that both gentlemen will forever live on in the game.

    Enough is enough CM

    Boring R&D programs - Don't do them then? Silly transfers - Perhaps, but does that really ruin the game for you? AI developing way too fast - Consider it an added challenge. Don't upgrade your car as quickly, and see how long you can still keep up on track. Alternatively, keep in alignment with their development progress, and then, in theory, no one gains an unfair advantage. Stupid questions about Butler and Weber - Can't argue with that. I just pretend that Claire is an amateur reporter that doesn't know any better, or that's she's star struck by my presence and can't come up with any better. Jeff being Jeff - Again, can't argue. He's a pleb. Wish there was a communication option where we could send him a snarky reply when he gives useless information like that. Too many sessions under the rain - Now this is a real, legitimate issue that needs to be addressed. Completely agree, and certainly not the first time it's been addressed. I'm confident the issue has been addressed enough for it to be in CM's queue for a fix. I can sympathize with the fact you're clearly frustrated, and I'm not here to tell you you're wrong for feeling the way you do. However, trying to 'rally the troops' in a way to intentionally harm CM's business is uncalled-for, and far from the right way to convey your frustration. You said yourself, you still played through 3 career seasons, so you're obviously getting value from your purchase - why then would you want to suggest people harm a business that's providing you value and entertainment? Fair enough if you don't think the game is worth the amount you spent on it, but then just wait for it to naturally be offered at a discount before purchasing. It's not my intention to take over your thread here, so please just take my silly rant for what it is.

    Farewell

    Thanks so much for everything @Faya. I really appreciate all your support and dedication to this community. I'm sure @RedDevilKT and @Hoo will do a nice job, but you're leaving behind some big shoes to fill. Best of luck with whatever adventure you're onto next! Wherever you land will be a richer place with you there.

    AI in the wet - all circuits

    G920 on XB1 No Assists AI Level: 90 @Faya Please consider adding intermediate conditions to time trial. Reason being... I think there could be a little rebalancing needed for AI in the wet (certainly in changing conditions), but, to @inspiretheworld's point, I think there's also a fair amount of the 'rebalancing' needed in my own skill level. I'm just not as confident in full wet conditions as I am in the dry, and am at my worst in intermediate conditions. I attribute that simply to practice. I practice a lot in Time Trial, because when I'm practicing I just want a simpler environment to hammer out laps without having to worry so much about tires, dodging AI, etc. I think a lot of people would agree, and do the same. So while I know I need to spend more time with full wet conditions in TT it would also be GREAT if we could have intermediate conditions available too.
