    About F2 in the '20 Game (AH19)

    I have to mention here surely the game having Michael Schumacher with the special edition is relevant to this discussion too? I don't know if you actually select him or his cars but that would surely be a solution to Anthoine dilemma too? He does not need to be in the game but you could have his car in there surely as a livery option? It would be a tribute, realistic and also not disrespectful.

    F1 2020 - Engine Sounds

    I'm confused. Is that really you Matt Gaetz recording and mixing the sounds for the new game?! 😉🤔🤣

    ERS Deployment - F1 2020

    I'd prefer the option to hold done the 'boost' button rather than a toggle. It's correct what Barry says about drivers having enough to think about already but I think it's actually the other way round. You'd normally only use this when on a straight and it's intuitive to push, then release when you don't need it anymore. With a toggle I'm positive one or both of the following will occur : 1) You press the toggle, then make your quick move but BECAUSE you are so busy you totally forget to press it again resulting in the total depletion of your reserve leaving you vulnerable to an easy pass during the next lap. 2) You will press the button then not being sure if it's actually working (your reserve might be low or your button is temperamental) so you press it again. Then maybe again. Then you hold it down to be sure, depending on the coding this will either register as a single press until you release the button or will toggle the boost on and off multiple times a second. Unless there is a LARGE and highly visible message in your hud saying BOOST ON or something equivalent it will cause a lot of confusion. Did I turn it off? How can I be sure? I believe holding the button down is actually the simplest method of applying a LIMITED user controlled boost for a precise amount of time. It's NOT like Indycar where your push to pass button gives you basically all the charge for a whole straight, F1 needs it to be more precisely managed as you can use it as many times you want if you have remaining charge. You might use it twice at Baku for example with the long straight there. I'm really hoping you can choose between push and hold /toggle. I vote push to hold obviously!

    Teammate became faster in Career Mode ???

    I was also referring to the track blocking incident in 2006 Monaco. Parking your car on the final turn whilst you have pole to stop anyone beating your time. Brilliant! 🛑🤣
  5. I agree so I'd better be clearer over my response. I meant as long as the issues are not punished by real life penalties and glitches occur then I'd prefer ghosting. Only as a temporary fix until ai behavior and rule infractions were tightened up though. My stance pretty much on anything is ALWAYS the more realistic the better but I'm also realistic acknowledging both online players and ai glitches /behavior can ruin an entire race for someone without compensation. In real life incidents like this, even if your race was a actually ruined, would result in a meaningful penalty for the driver /team involved. Fine, grid penalty next race, points docking etc. I recognize these are all impotent in a single race environment so why not have a simple game IF AND THEN solution for the pits? IF 2 cars of same team detected with the 1st car still in pit box with 2nd stuck behind THEN ghost 2nd car? In project cars for example you manually drive into the pits if you want and the cars while not ghosted have collision detection OFF. This works very well, I believe it's the same in iracing. When a game won't even allow you to drive into the pits at all like the f1 games and the ai has total control is somewhat a moot point disagreeing with ghosting or CD off because you have no way to drive around an errant car anyway.

    Ranked 25% on PS4

    Well it's not Codies fault if noone wants to race 25 %. All they can do is give you the option. It's a fact that casuals prefer 5 lap races and they buy most of the copies. You could join a league or start one of your own maybe? When the new game comes out you should be fine for a couple months before interest wanes from more serious racers.

    Next featured racer event

    I actually made a few posts back saying to fix online racing for good you just need to ghost all the cars, which is pretty much what you are saying. Very sad we have to conceive extreme measures but there a lot of awful people running races for everyone out there. In fact I believe ALL ranking events should be ghosted/no collisions as it really would be fair that way every time. Stops people illegally blocking too, basically becomes an on line time trial mode but what's wrong with that?

    Next featured racer event

    It would be more realistic if they copied real life. If anyone jumps the start the counter is reset and all offenders immediately put at the back of the grid, ghosted of course. If they do it 3 times in a row they are eliminated.

    Help with Manual Starts

    I have to admit if I'm having a bad day or it's wet I occasionally switch the TC on for the very start then as soon as I'm moving safely switch TC off again immediately as I prefer no assists in the sessions themselves. I'd love a practice mode in the game where you could practice starts over and over!

    Please fix the career mode ride height!

    Good point about the suspension. Not just extra downforce of course but speed as well. Fortunately it doesnt seem to affect the handling at all despite the worry that you're going to slide into the dirt at any moment!

    AI team performance seems unreal

    As long as the first season is accurate I don't mind so much about the rest. Makes it more interesting having different people and teams as challengers!

    F1® 2020 | First Gameplay Trailer

    Sorry for the multiple posts everyone. As you can see from the Screenshot every time I press submit it gave me a timeout and did not show my post has succeeded. Ironically the moment I messaged about it first the original post appeared then multiple others... 🙄 Maybe my tablet is as senile as me? 🤔🤣

    F1® 2020 | First Gameplay Trailer

    Barry, sorry if I'm being extra slow here but can you explain what that statement means to me? Surely the 2020 season is the whole point of the game? Unless you mean the actual REAL season if it takes place with reduced races, doubled up 8weekends, maybe even reversed tracks who knows?! That would be extra cool for sure. For one second I thought you meant 2021 season but that would be daft! EDIT:After writing this post I had to wait 2 minutes to submit it. Hmmm Now after waiting 2 minutes it's making me wait another 2 minutes. 🙄 now another 107 seconds. I think if I press submit just before the limit is up it resets the limit whereas usually it just counts down to zero. BTW I believe I just wrote one reply elsewhere before this one. Also wondering now if just typing extra stuff while I am waiting is actually resetting the timer? Let's find out.....yes it seems to be doing precisely that OK I will now sit and do nothing for at least 3 minutes!

    Teammate became faster in Career Mode ???

    Fortunately now we know about it when we start a new career we can make sure not to upgrade out cars too much! That's the easy solution, it just kinda sucks that all the work you put in to get points to upgrade your car (the whole point of career lol) is half wasted. I'm definitely trying out the simulation mode next time. If it gives you half points compared to what you'd get for completing all the sessions yourself it might be the perfect fix

    Help for Unclassified game on PC

    If you could provide screen shots of exactly what you are trying to do and also to show the error you get it would be a great help to Codies.

    Teammate became faster in Career Mode ???

    If it's just one upgrade then it's unlikely you will notice a difference. It's usually only when you have 3/4 or more of available power /aero upgrades installed that your teammate starts to pull away from you.
  20. 100% agree on ghosted ai in the pits, which is actually everyone as the ai takes over player cars in the pits.
  21. sloppysmusic

    Penalties!

    If you could provide video it would be really helpful to Codies to see exactly what needs fixing. They specifically need to see exactly when the car in front brakes to see if it counts as early braking, break checking, excessive braking etc plus to see your track positioning to confirm your distance from the car ahead.

    F1 2020 BETA - Process Closed

    LOL man parents have no control over their kids these days, if you let your 8yo have a cellphone you can bet they are on fb, Facebook, Instagram etc etc. I personally believe it's child neglect but I'm a dinosaur I guess. Unless you ask them for government or student ID you can bet lies have been told. 🤔😒

    F1 2020 BETA - Process Closed

    Codies DO want to pick the right people. You can be sure of that! The game is marketed at all ability levels and all ages but I'd be surprised if they let minors in because that's a dodgy area litigation wise (attorneys have no scruples). Of course they'd like the opinion of all ages but inviting a few youngsters to be involved in a private forum mixing with adults is NOT a good idea. I have full confidence Codies will only pick adults, or at least filter out the obvious youngsters.

    Esports F1 Barcelona Yesterday Simply Brilliant!!

    I just captured the clip off Twitch. Shows the invalid lap warning and then he spins out 'for fun'. This time I watched him obviously as last time i switched to LeClerc for his reaction. You can HEAR Charles's reaction tho in the mic. At no time does Lando mention he 'spun for fun'. I continued his lap and half way through you see the disconnection message. It specifically says network cable unplugged. To be fair on replay it did not look like it was deliberate considering he'd carried on at this point, although he wasn't exactly shocked when it happened. Seemed like he was oh whatever. Including screen shots form the clip!

    Exactly! i read that too and thought what a hypocrite. His channel probably still has the stream on....
