    Thanks for the answers.


    They might add some new things to the game. Guess we have to wait for them to announce the features, so they don't spoil it with the UDP specs 🙂

    Yep, if UDP is not disabled or otherwise unavailable in the beta one may be able to just self-document them though (for personal use of course).

  2. I asked Customer Support about this a few weeks ago after the beta was announced and this was their response, I hope we will see this at least once the beta drops


    Thank you for submitting your recent request to Codemasters Customer Services concerning F1 2019.
    Unfortunately we have not released those type of details on the game at the current time. Full details will be made available on our website, closer to the game's release date.
    Keep up to date with any further announcements on our website - www.codemasters.com and on Twitter - @Formula1game

    If anyone believes this is true... Just look at it. The format has been taken from custservice@codemasters.com with at least these issues

    • Congratulation should be Congratulations
    • Choosen instead of chosen
    • "f1 2019 beta" spelled without any uppercase letters
    • "Codemasters  Services" was originally "Codemasters Customer Services"
    • Notice the double space between Codemasters and Services.
    • The reply thing is straight from some Customer Service email. We could find who this is by just using that link to reply to that chain of emails.
    • The disclaimer is shown at the bottom of every Customer Service email.

    I was thinking the same, I looked at an email from Codemasters Support and while it resembles it, it does look strange with all those spelling errors etc. - though, the sender may have not been a native speaker and was just super excited to give someone access to the beta. But defo something @Faya & Co. would be able to sort out.

  4. @Hoosince this will probably not make it into F1 2018 it would be great if the Event packet can be extended in F1 2019 to include a "Lap Restarted" event. I am working on a platform where players can send their Time Trial lap times + full telemetry to a website and I currently have to write code to detect lap restarts. It works most of the time but can be a bit flaky in certain edge cases. Such an event would make that a lot easier.

    Don't desperate. It happened the same to me when I bought G29 last November. At the beggining I was around 4 seconds slower per lap and I thought.... bad decission to buy a wheel.... but, bit by bit, day by day, the situation improved and now I'm faster with the wheel, even I'm capable of removing all the driving aids and my pace is similar than running with the controller + aids. Of course, allways wearing socks! 😉

    That's definitely encouraging 😄 I personally now gave up on the shoe idea and will keep practicing

  6. I bought a Logitech G920 for the Xbox One a month ago or so and as expected I am significantly slower compared to my performance using a controller. I'm so desperate to figure out why that I even tried wearing shoes instead of only socks when using the wheel. And to my surprise it at least made me more consistent and competitive with my best lap times on the controller.

    So here goes the odd poll because I'm curious: do you wear shoes (any kind really) when racing with a wheel? Does it make you faster/more consistent/slows you down a lot? 

  7. Howdy,

    I wanted to share a little something I am currently working on on the side: a platform to record and compare your telemetry data, primarily for those doing time trials a lot (like me). It is mainly for myself to analyse my driving more and to find the bits I need to improve my driving and lap times. The charts still need some work, for example I want to get more data points into a single chart so it is easier to see several bits of data from the car. Additionally I'm looking into ways to automatically find areas for improvement in the data, for example braking points, too much throttle etc. and much more community bits, like challenging other users, setting goals etc.

    On a side note: does anyone have good resources on F1 telemetry as in books/articles that dive a bit deeper into what charts are important and what should be compared to what? The most things I found so far were pretty shallow and didn't go into the level of detail I would have liked.

    The technical bits for those interested: the desktop client to record the data is written in JavaScript (React) and Electron as the wrapper for later x-platform deployment, I also have an earlier version of the client that used Swift. The backend runs on PHP, using Laravel and again React for the graphs.
