    What's your favourite F1 Track

    Yea, it's very hard to pick a favorite F1 circuit. I happen to like all of them with the exception of a couple that I didn't like that I've come to master over the years and grow found of, to include Jose Carlos Pace and Hermanos Rodriguez. Second to SPA for me is Baku!

    SPA I would have to say is my favorite F1 circuit!

    The next big piece of technology coming to the next gen consoles is called Ray Tracing and its advent is definitely going to revolutionize computer graphic rendering in a huge way. Rumor has it that Xbox Scarlett will feature dedicated hardware to handle Ray Tracing. But don't expect to see any of this technology in 2020 with the release dates of the next gen consoles scheduled for late this year. But we'll sure experiencing this new heights of graphics programming with the next next major regulation change scheduled for 2021 - new regulations, new console technologies! https://wccftech.com/xbox-scarlett-dedicated-ray-tracing-cores/
  4. Well then say just that!
  5. The game is playable now on PC, XB1 and PS4 - what are you talking about man?
  6. Unless it's part of some classic segment of the game, it don't think so, given the eponymous yearly naming convention of the game. But nice try though!

    Haven't bought F1 since 2016

    Adding VR to a one-year game cycle would be tough to execute for Codemasters - I think!

    Is this the final version of the game?

    By now they've already shifted focus to this year's release, with two new tracks and all. Any updates beyond January will be livery updates for the Australian GP, if natural conditions extant in that region allow.

    Is this the final version of the game?

    Yeah, I can see some really cool liveries coming for the start of the Australian GP at least, which to me is still cool, as hey, making money however small, is still the design of a business. Looking forward to the January patch for sure.

    Setup Guide Now LIVE

    So BarryBL, for all these components to work and emulate real world physics, you must code for air atmospherics in the game, yes? Drum roll please!

    Setup Guide Now LIVE

    I've only glanced at the items, but this is very useful information indeed. I just need to understand the theory behind the setups in order to create my own. Mentioning which tracks require certain settings is also very vital information. Very helpful posting, at least to me, indeed!
  12. In this race I started last (9th) due to track cutting and had 1204 points. Now look at the finish and the skill lever of those I came out ahead of - one of them is solid gold for Pete's sake! Now why in the world would I loose 7 points at the end of this race? When in a previous race I racked up over 20 points and I was ahead of just one full slate silver skill level?? Is someone purposely messing with my points in multiplayer mode?! This has been happening for quite some time now and needs to stop immediately ! Don't you folks have nothing better to do with your time??!!! PLEASE!!!!

    Unfair points allocation - again!

    As of this posting, and with 143 views, I presume that the culprits have made note of my game-tag and are ensuring that I cannot enter a multiplayer session....GRRRRRRR...to say the bloody least. Can't Codemasters management do something about this clandestine abuse?!!! I cannot enter a multiplayer session as of this posting!!!!! There are some pretty vindictive ******** out there for sure!
  14. Celebrating or not, I would like to extend a very Merry Christmas to all anyway, and wishing you all the best in 2020. This year saw Codemasters introduce their best F1 game to date and we all look forward to another amazing iteration of F1 2020 - bug free of course (just a prayer - LOL). It's been a pleasure folks! Enjoy the very sweet Christmas music so fitting to the occasion.

    Merry Christmas and all the best in 2020 F1ers!

    Someone moved this to the 2nd page - GGGRRRRR!!!!!

    Moved from Auto to Manual Gears Help

    What most folks don't understand about manual gears and why it's essential to manual shift during any racing event is how the RPM works. Each gear in a car or race car increases in revolutions per minute with the end to get optimally to as close to redline as possible, where the engine's MAXIMUM HP and TORQUE are reached just before hitting redline. If you use the up-shift beep in manual mode, each beep represents the engine's max hp and torque at this point in the gear range. This means that in 1st gear, if you shift manually and get as close as possible to redline, you've just squeezed out the maximum HP and Torque from the engine and that's power on tap for each gear. In addition you can hold that power for as long as you like by keeping the meter hovering near redline. Automatic shifting doesn't get as close to redline as possible even in an F1 car. In addition to squeezing out maximum HP and Torque, you have the benefit to downshift to the power gears (2 and 3) for some serious corner exit speeds. Again, something you don't have access to with manual shifting. Remember in each gear you get to reach a car's maximum power by getting as close to redline as possible, and this is the fun factor and control you gain over a race-car when you shift manually - enjoy the benefits, but it will take some time to get acclimated to.

    Intentional Crashing - Ranked Matches

    Get in with a good gang with safety racing S and you should be fine. It's a problem is getting into a decent sesson, if and when you find one.
  18. They say there is a first time for everything under the sun - LOL!
  19. The blink rate isn't off by that much compared to IRL. It's something they should try and adjust in 202 to include making sure that ERS of this hybrid is doing what it's supposed to do in a very game efficient manner.

    Thanks! Just what the doctor ordered!

    Real Racing 3

    OK the votes are in. I installed the game, played for a while and didn't care for it one bit. Why? For one the steering didn't respond well to the tilt function of my iPad as it does in RR3 and I found the car understeering major. Also for the 5-10 minutes I played the game, my iPad heated up on the backside like crazy, meaning that there was just too much overuse of the processor for such little visual and auditory haptics. I finally uninstalled the game and may return to it at some later time. But for now, it's Real Racing 3 baby!

    F1 2019 Worth £22?

    That's a bargin for this game. I'd snatch that thing up before they run out copies! F1 2019 is the best F1 game ever!

    Real Racing 3

    Ok, I finally got my new 7th gen iPad that allows me to evaluate this game as I’m an avid RR3 player from day one. I’ll have my comments after a few days with this game🏎
  24. I would say that they're serious about going head to head with the leader of the sim racing pack, Forza Motorsport! A daunting challenge indeed, but with some hard work and innovation, it is possible for Codemasters to put their collective talents to bear and create one hell of a sime racing game, outside the F1 series.
  25. Wait, aren't the blinking rear red lights associated with when the battery is taking charge from the ERS system, and therefore timing is endemic to that car's operation alone and has nothing to do with abnornal blink rates from IRL?!
