    PAD is too faster than Wheel ! WHY ?

    Oh wow, I always knew pad had traction control built in, but didn’t realise it was like this for understeer. That’s insane.

    No Assists vs. Assists [F1 2019]

    When you are racing in a high level international league and find out at the end of the season the 4 guys who beat you, all chose to use a pad cause it’s faster and more consistent.......it’s very disappointing. Then you realise some guys changed their wheels for pads during wet races too.....it’s a joke This never happens in GT Sport.

    Please just scan the tracks and be done with it. It’s already well over due.

    GRID Season 1 launching December 4 - Hot Hatch Showdown

    Putting my 2 cents in here. I came in here looking to see how much dlc had been released for GRID since it’s launch due to the extreme lack of content the base game had. I don’t care about seasons. I want content. I want tracks. And I won’t buy the game until there are a sufficient amount of them. So hold back seasons all you like but I don’t think anyone has ever said “wait, you’re giving me too much content too early” in a racing game.
  5. Pure speculation thread here. I can’t help but wonder where this will go. I like to look at the positives more in life so my mind has gone down the road of: - simulation F1 opportunities - slightly mad had a console in development apparently. Rumour was it was dedicated to racing games/sim. Would love for that to still be real and true. After all......a lot of us pretty much only play racing games. - Project Cars 3? - what’s that other game SMT we’re working on? Some “blockbuster”. - PC2 has pretty great VR.....more of that in Codies games? Anyway, I’m hoping this acquisition was done to build codemasters rather than to pull down a competitor. Slightly Mad were very ambitious and out there so I hope that this just enables them to make better games.
  6. F1 could easily have a tutorial part to the game with driving games etc to improve specific skill sets.

    FFB - thoughts and impressions

    To me the FFB has the same issues as Dirt Rally 2.0 had. The main force is there, but there is no other FFb ‘noise’ for road bumps, road surface, losing grip etc. The argument has always been that people feel road bumps not through the wheel but via the seat. So no need to model that in the FFb. Thats rubbish. Firstly, it’s obvious when driving your car that the wheel vibrates with the road. It’s connected to the car the same as your seat, so how does one feel a bump in the seat and not the wheel? Secondly, we lack a heck of a lot of information driving a sim wheel compared to real life, so FFB needs to be looked at from that perspective. F1 (and now dirt Rally 2.0) has good FFB. Why do other Codies games not?
  8. As most know, F1 went silly and blocked a whole bunch of F1 gameplay vids at the start of the year under copyright. All that was resolved fairly quickly. Well......it’s happening again. Our most recent league race from the TNF1 league has been blocked. How do we go about unblocking it, or any advice on reducing the chances of this happening again? cheers

    F1 copyright shenanigans on youtube

    Hi @jennyannem Thanks for the response. Link is below. https://youtu.be/0i4qhOxjsPQ FWIW this is the third race this season blocked under copyright.
  10. To be honest, all I wanted from a Grid game was a good story in the career mode. Well....and a decent racing game.
  11. I’ve bought the last few years of F1 games, heavily involved in league racing. But I think I’ll give next years a miss. Ive come to realise that I much prefer the support received by something like GT Sport than F1. GT Sport is not an annual game release. Each month a new update arrives often with a new track.

    WOW Mediocre reviews ...

    I ignored the reviews and dived in as I loved Grid back in the day. Turns out I actually loved Race Driver 3 (or V8 Supercars in Australia) which is more of a sim orientated affair. To me the game is neither arcade nor sim enough to be....fun. If it’s arcade then why is my car spinning 180 so easy with slight contact from another car? Forza Horizon 4 has good arcade physics IMHO If its more sim....why am I faster sideways through most corners? Because the car handles like a shopping cart. Anyway, I’ll be taking it back today. Will stick to the F1 game, Dirt Rally 2 and GT Sport as my poisons of choice to end this gen.

    Base PS4 use here... the downgrade is savage!

    Insert inevitable video of Driveclub running on base ps4
  14. I don’t know enough about it all to know if Grid 2008 was fantastic for its time, or if Grid 2019 is sub par. Probably a bit of both I guess.

    Watered down damage.

    Playing Grid 2019 makes me miss Race Driver 3 so much. Wish they would have gone in that direction instead of what we got.

    Cockpit camera and sitting position

    I have this exact problem. For me it’s more not seeing the ERS charge level that frustrates me. It would be good if the game saved the camera specific to each car, like GT Sport does. I’ve started using a sim dash app on my phone which displays all the data I need. Still haven’t found the perfect way to mount it yet without the phone blocking more of the screen. Open to any ideas.
  17. Man.....I’d pay good money for this app on iOS. A bunch of my mates in our league would too. Nothing in iOS shows the ERS charge/deployment data at all. At least from what I’ve seen.

    Pad vs Wheel completely broken?

    Hmmm.......we have a pad racer absolutely dominating our league this year (1 second a lap faster than everyone). But then again pad users have always generally dominated our league. We have guys that own a wheel, but race competitively with a pad instead because it's quicker. Always has been. In fact we have a guy who is a professional race car driver who last season was 1 second a lap faster than all....on the pad. This year he has a wheel and is back with the rest of us. Some sort of definitive proof would be nice on this as it's a pretty big issue. Big enough that leagues may start opting for 'wheel only' or 'pad only' races.

    No pedal feedback on wheel

    Just keep practicing mate. I used to rely on the trigger feedback when I was playing on a pad to. You get used to it after a while. You'll stop waiting for the rumble on the trigger, and start making decisions based on how fast you're going and how much of either pedal you're applying.
  20. Just a quick heads up to those of you who are playing on a HDR capable TV/Monitor. This was experienced on a PS4Pro. I recently thought that the colours of F1 2019 looked a bit cartoonish and wondered what was going on. Went into the graphics options to look at the HDR setting. It was set to "AUTO". When I changed that setting from AUTO to ON, it was instantly apparent that AUTO = no HDR. The colours suddenly looked a lot more realistic, and the game really shined as a result. When changing between AUTO and OFF, there was no change to the colours. So evidently, the AUTO HDR function in the game was not picking up that I have a HDR TV (I guess) and was not allowing HDR to be displayed. Only the ON option does that. Worth a look, as it is a significant improvement.
  21. Ferrethead81

    Check your HDR setting in game - PS4Pro

    I'm guessing your AUTO function is working properly. Seems a bit hit and miss between consoles.

    Engine Temps

    I've found engine temps can get out of control by running Rich too long, or by following closely to another car for too long. To the point where you won't be able to overtake the car in front even with DRS and overtake ERS. So you have to plan your move a lot more in advance rather than sitting up someones bum the whole lap. I'm not sure if engine temps go up during Quali using the MAX fuel mapping. I'd assume so. So I run in Standard and low ERS until it's my hotlap and then pump it all up.

    Idea - short full quali

    Yep. We have the situation where everyone just sits in the pit for the first 90% of each quali phase. Lol. Rolls out for one or two hot laps when the track has rubbered in.

    Idea - short full quali

    So I’m in a league that has started doing full quali. Which is a lot of fun and adds a bit of strategy to the race. But....it takes ages. As an idea for future titles I reckon there could be a hybrid short full quali. Where each driver gets a single hotlap, but you go through the 3 quali phases. Or even just a way to set shorter time periods for each quali session. As in 10-8-5 or something. food for thought

    Anyone use mirrors in cockpit?

    This simply isn't true, you must have something setup strangely. I use cockpit and look back all the time even with the MFD up. I have a G29 and use the R2 button to look back which I''m pretty sure is default. Starting to try and get used to look right and left with my L3/R3 buttons on the wheel. It would be nice if the view slid right and left to the mirrors instead of changing view completely. It's a bit off putting, especially if you're about to hit a braking point.
