  1. I find the most important thing with a start is to build up about 11,500 revs so as not to spin up, and also not to bog down.


    But then a slow and constant downward application on the throttle.

    It's a balance, it's not easy, which is a great part of the game. You can be too eager on the throttle and lose your position super easy.


    It's why I think a 'practice start' function should be added to f1 2020

  2. The liveries in the trailer, and thumbnails resemble the multiplayer liveries in f1 2019, so I wouldn't get your hopes up atall.


    I think it's a cost and time thing. Takes a huge amount of effort and resources to develop that kind of facility I imagine. 


    I'd love a gt sport-esque livery editor, but I strongly doubt we'll see it in this edition.

    Nice to meet you🤪. I'm the F1 forum ******* haha🤣


    but hey nice guys always finish last.


    and whats also funny, the people now defending CM high and low and make al kinds of excuses, let's wait a year or 2, lets see if they all are still kissing their asses🤣

    I've been a forum member a long time (this is my third account) mostly on the rally side though.


    The f1 forum is more quiet.


    I do understand your frustration. And I get that some faults are recurring, I just have a slightly more laid back approach.


    I've been frustrated at bugs and decisions for a long time. But codemasters (certainly on the dirt side with Christina and now pj) have in recent years been great, and honest enough on the communication front (not including dirt 4).

    So perhaps I'm a bit out of step on the f1 side of things, but f1 2019 was a huuuge leap (imo) on previous titles (blue flag ai excluded).

    Sorry but that is an ignorant remark. 

    every year, with every single patch, THE FFB GETS MORE BUSTED UNTIL WE DON'T HAVE ANY LEFT! AND EVERY YEAR WE ADRESS THIS ISSUE. You see that word YEAR? So it's not like an issue thats suddenly appeared overnight. No it's present every.....?????!! 

    so excuse me when I say that you can take that magic wand and stick it where the sun don't shine, because after YEARS THE SAME ******** EVERY YEAR, THEY STILL RELEASE PATCHES WHICH BREAK THE FFB MORE AND MORE! 

    WHATEVER WE SAY HERE DOESN'T MATTER, Or else it would hve been TESTED before a patch releases. You know what magic wand that is? THE MIDDLE FINGER WAND. 


    you sir don't know what you're saying, and I think the whole forum here supports me on the above points. THESE ISSUES ARE INGAME FOR YEARS! Not magic finger euh wand, no communication. 

    yeah DIRT forums are a lot better i believe, but hey, you don't have that nitwit matter or whatever who only tells lies and nonsense. 

    but over here? Bro, sorry but to put it blunt: get your head out of your ass. Since @BarryBL is here things are improving. Only took like 5 or 6 YEARS AND THE SAME AMOUNT OF COMMUNITY MANAGERS!

  5. Sometimes, they can't wave a magic wand.


    Issues get dealt with eventually, but some aren't easy fixes.


    Trouble is, some people demand changes at the click of a finger. That's never going to be the case.


    But, in terms of the feedback (constructive) it does get listened to. And those fixes become apparent down the line.


    F1 2019 is a good example of implementing improvements. Better than previous titles.


    Also, Dirt rally 2 had a good level of dialogue and feedback between the community and developers.

    I'd say Codemasters are one of the better studios for that.

    Considering that we broke the forums by adding that little checkbox if you play on Google Stadia... I don't think I'd be willing to take the risk! That "Your profile is 66% complete" is still broken, but I just advise everyone to press the 'dismiss' button.

    Also about words: Here is a study released by OFCOM about things that'd be censored by the forums. WARNING: Contains loads of offensive language... as it's a study about them.

    That's 89% of my vocabulary gone.

  7. I'd agree, the Ai in f1 2019 is the best yet.


    With (for me) the exception being backmarkers.


    The weird leaping out the way and slowing down that ai drivers do under blue flag conditions is mind bendingly frustrating. 


    However, it's a fix I can't imagine is too difficult to resolve, and I'm hoping for a change in f1 2020.


    I race 100% distance so backmarkers do become a real pain.


  8. Licensing is the issue on the damage front, I think. Manufacturers are never too keen to see their merchandise in a crumpled heap.


    I like how the mechanical damage has evolved. We now have to manage components which is great. It would be good to see more random mechanical faults for sure, especially if we are to run a new team. 


    Dependant on engine manf/r&d focus/experience we should have a suitably matched reliability factor.

    Perhaps one that is only active in your team, to avoid licensing nightmares.

    Where in Ireland though? My vote has to go to Moll’s Gap, what better rally stage is there in Ireland?

    Ireland has been on the gossip dream list for some time. It's the narrow lane thing. Isle of man would fill a similar role.


    But yea, some very iconic stages.

    oh you fan boys are hilarious. Lets back track and talk about all the mumble you guys are saying.


    1) Each year codes are given to certain people, youtubers ect. Its not that hard to play the game if you know one of them. 

    2) Nico Rosberg has his own youtube channel.  Google it. The vlog i speak of was uploaded on Jun 22, 2019

    3) I could care less what Daniel is saying about the game. He is a current formula 1 driver. Its in his contract to speak of anything Formula 1 related as if was the best thing he ever saw in his entire natural born life. 

    4) Press: Garbage. They say the same fairy tales since F1 2010. Its a sales technique so the gullible fall into the hype.

    5) I don't intend to buy this game full price nor have i pre-ordered it. 

    6) You can't do a full Formula 2 season in F1 2019. So if you intend to. Keep dreaming. 


    You can compete in the F2 championship. In championship mode, no dreams necessary.


    Also it's ok to like the game, it's also ok not to. But in calling it a disaster  (which it clearly isn't by any definition) you open yourself up to criticism. If by questioning your statement of 'fact' and enjoying the game makes one a fan boy, then by similar logic, are you not just a troll?

    Does anyone know how to tune out the massive wheel soft lock or whatever it is, which prevents me from making proper sharp turns? The wheel becomes insanely heavy to turn around 90 degrees in either direction. Using CSW 2.5 and have set ingame FFB 50 and wheel FF to 50. Still way too much resistance.

    Have you taken wheel damping to zero? 

  12. This games great, an improvement on 2018 which I enjoyed. On the point that the f2 implementation being a gimmick, I sort of agree on the front that it's too short and quite inconsequential, however I'd recommend  (as I'm doing) a full F2 championship in free play mode, and then starting the career scenarios in your second season. This will allow you to immerse yourself in the rookie role quite nicely.


    Haters' gonna hate, whatever codemasters produces.

    Has anyone set up a dirty gossip club yet? If anyone was in my league from dirt rally/4 (Michaels league), I’ll get it up and running again. I seem to be having trouble on the mobile site though, it won’t let me change the number of stages/locations

    We have a Discord championship starting up if you fancied it

    Anyone playing with the Group B RX cars on console? I have downloaded the cars from the PS Store, but no sign of them in either My Team or Freeplay. 

    Same thing happened with Germany. PSN seems a little unpredictable when it comes to DLC availability.
