    Equal performance

    They are equal in every way but sound and appearance.
  2. They don't though. A lot of posts get ignored. This one as well as can be seen by the absent tag, this issue has clearly NOT been forwarded to the developers. And it saddens me that you would make it seem like it is. I've never ever encountered a game developer company that is so bad at talking to their customers. Addressing issues. Explaining why they haven't been fixed for years and laying out a plan for the future. Calling me out on my 'tact' and making it seem like that by following protocol things actually get done is beyond hilarious. I know for a fact you're here long enough to know that is a lie. I've tried that for a long time. People are trying as long as I can remember. They get ignored and lied to and then some. I always hold you in such high regard man. but if you feel the form of the discussion is more important than the validity of the points, even if the frustration is justified (after years of disaster after disaster) then you've lost touch with what's important. The time for sugarcoating is over. It's februari and league mode is still not working. It's inexcusable. And them not even trying to fix it but just ignoring stuff into oblivion makes it all the more horrendous. The only thing they actually put effort in fixing is the damn in-game shop.
  3. That and you don't know who your teammate is so you can't discuss that amongst yourselves either. This is another clear example of something that gets reported for 2 full game cycles now. It's incredible that it's still in, and that no one at codies thought this would be a problem in the first place. A game with pitstops that usually happen around the same time. And double stacking being notoriously bad anyway.. Ill thought out for a multiplayer game. That's super interesting to know! I always assumed it was the order you joined the lobby.. but this is much easier to manipulate.
  4. Little bump because signups close tonight! And here's a trailer:

    League mode.

    @BarryBL A reply would be nice. We would very much like to get your game to work before our new season starts or find a workaround for our issues. League mode gets brought up by a lot of people as the first thing that annoys the hell out of them with this game.

    League mode.

    Yeah well that way we have no way to save tires/weather/parc ferme. It's how we're gonna do it now but it's far from ideal. and it shows that even if we're willing to think of whatever workaround we can to make league mode work. it's not possible with the best will in the world. Apart from it not working (parc fermé) @BarryBL What do you think? Can you take this to the devs and are they actually gonna do something about it? Or will league mode in next game be as unusable as this game? And another question: Why don't you guys host the forum league in league mode? If you did you could have found the issues for the devs... these are not things you need to play the game 2k hours to spot. These are things that you notice the instant you try to create a league...
  7. Thank you very much @steviejay69! hope the devs can take a look at is cause it seems like a very easy fix and this weird decision makes league mode as good as useless as in its current state. I've never encountered a league that wants ai in their races so it's super weird that this setting got in the game as it is. @BarryBL If the devs need help with fixing the league mode, or for helping you make it usable in the next game. I'm would gladly offer my services. I think I have a very good idea of what most leagues would want from a league mode. Or how it would be usable for them. But either way: Please don't mess it up 3 games in a row. That stuff like this (or a non-working park ferme) sneaks in, let alone be unfixed nearly 8 months after release.. It's just so unnecessary.

    I JUST LOST EVERYTHING ***?

    Don't know about xbox but on pc this occasionally happens for no obvious reason and when you quit and try again (sometimes after restarting steam) it works again. Hope such is the case for you too!

    This game is so incredibly broken... [VOD]

    The bug reports have been done my man. And doing that cleaaaaaaaarly doesn't work. So my guess is OP just tried another way out of desperation. Or annoyance. What you say makes sense with a normal developer that wants to make a good game out of principle. but these guys here give SO little ***** about us or their game (that we've already payed for so why should they) They don't care about being the laughing stock of the game industry as long as they make money over the back of the f1 licence. They know they have a monopoly on f1 games so they can get by with veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery little effort and it shows. So yeah. get what you're saying. but with codemasters it's the opposite. You give them a bug report and they do nothing with it.. (or.. well... they cherry-pick 1/100 that looks easy to do all the while leaving the really big ones in)
  10. Okay since i don't get a response on the league post I made in suggestions here: https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/74779-league-mode/ I'm gonna make a bug report out of the thing that makes it nearly impossible to use the league mode as it is: A detailed description of the issue. An even more detailed description in the link above but short story here. We want to do quali and race on different days (cause full quali and 100% race is too long for one go) We decided to brave hell and try to use league mode to do this. (although we now found out we might as well nog as parc ferme isn't working. link to report here: https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/74814-bug-pc-league-mode-parc-ferme-not-working/?tab=comments#comment-595873) The only way we found we could use league mode in general (even if that parc ferme thing wasn't the case) Was by making a new league for every event. Because it is impossible for us to know for every race that there's gonna be 20 people. and we don't want AI in our race. and this rule makes this impossible: Platform PC What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) Latest Ranked/Unranked/Leagues Leagues Wired or Wireless Connection? Not relevant The amount of players in your session? YOU only have to try and set up a league to notice all the settings you can't set the way you want to make it remotely usable. Were you the host? Yes Did this issue happens for everyone in the session, just some people or just yourself? What did they see? To everyone. Other people tried making leagues and they run into this issue too. We need to be able to make your problem happen internally so we can fix the issue. Can you make the problem happen again? Yes How do you make the problem happen? Not wanting ai in your league races. And running into this problem from the get-go. Can you add a report code. How to find this is in Main Menu > Game Options > Settings > 16 digit code in the bottom left of the screen. Please make sure that this is the code from the session you had the issue in. Adding report codes from as many users in your session as possible would be really helpful here. It's super easy to replicate. Video of the issue, including timestamps. Did you stream the session? Screenshot above.

We want to do quali and race on different days (cause full quali and 100% race is too long for one go) We decided to brave hell and try to use league mode to do this (1 event.. every week a new league.. because of FORCED AI in 'on demand' leagues if you don't have the same amount of drivers as signups..) But found that, despite parc ferme being turned on in the settings. if you leave the session after quali and then come back to it, setups won't be locked by parc ferme. which makes league mode useless even for the ONE use we thought we could give it.

Can you make the problem happen again? Yes. Start a league (on demand, with session saves turned on) After quail. have the admin not continue to the race. and everyone will go back to the main menu. Then go back into the league and start the race. Setups won't be fixed (or saved for that matter) defeating the point of parc ferme and league mode.

    He's not reporting bugs guys he's telling you to fix the game. As are many people. Clip is hilarious btw. how after all this time a game can still surprise you.

    League mode.

    Okay, update. We did some testing. Ai reserves don't come out in quali which is a relief. We have found something very serious however. and that is that Parc Ferme setups doesn't transfer between quali and the race (if you go back to the menu in between) This is pretty serious and, for us, removes the need to use the league mode altogether, because the whole point of it was to enforce parc ferme. Tires and tire wear do carry over. But tires are easily enforced in unranked anyway and.... in the end we don't really think all that is worth the effort JUST to give the top 10 5% tire wear at the start of every race. It would have been if the setups came across too. but now we found that they don't. (There's also no way of enforcing it via telemetry as player setups are not in there. (They are however when they leave and the ai takes over their car <-- oversight. but that is of no use for us as we can't go about asking everybody to leave during a session to check their setups. So now we're at the point where in f1 2020. it is currently impossible to do quali and race on different days while enforcing parc ferme.. or use the league mode at all because of the reasons above. PLEASE fix this. 2 games in a row league mode is unable for ANY serious league. we need the features that were working so fine in championship mode but got butchered in this league mode behind weird restrictions in terms of forced ai and reserve driver management. And now parc ferme isn't even working. SO updated fix list: -Please have us disable ai, always, altogether -Please have us add more than 20 drivers to the league -Please fix parc ferme and have it carry over between quali and race, even if it's on different days. I worked fine in championship mode too.

    Running a League has been hell

    Agree with most Just explained the issues we run into in another topic here: https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/74779-league-mode/ But that's just what even makes it like... almost unusable to even create races for us. Even as 1 off events. (and keep score ourselves with excel like OP says) League mode is unusable to use as a league because of the inflexibility with rules and reserves. Adds nothing in terms of gameplay (No engine/gearbox wear) And would be helped so much by dedicated servers indeed...............

    League mode.

    @BarryBL @RedDevilKT Made a few topics about this already. But since we now HAVE to use league mode for next season, and I'm testing it at this very moment, I'm gonna explain as clearly as I can, WHY we didn't use it before, still very much rather not use it, and the issues we run into. Firstly, the reason we now have to use league mode is because we want to do quali and race on different days. We want to save the session after qualifying, keep park ferme and q2 quali tires, and do the race the next day. Now this USED to be so easy to do with championship mode. Save session after quali and continue the next day. We could do this per event or make the calendar in advance, restart a session if things went awry, and the grid didn't get filled with ai drivers. Now championship mode is no more, and I want to explain why league mode is such a huge step backwards, why it is of no use to use as it is, and why we can't even really use it as it is supposed to if we want to. - We NEED to use on demand. because every league needs the flexibility to change times a bit if necessary. But also because you guys made it so the ONLY way we can stop playing after quali, and do the race the next day, is by picking "On Demand" in the settings: - This leads to problems as On demand forces you (for some reason) to fill the grid with ai reserves: - This wouldn't be a problem if we could change the number of drivers in the race during the season but alas: So there you have it. A very, very big issue that leagues that don't want to use AI in their races barely can go around. No league can guarantee 20 driver attendance for the entire season, and they shouldn't need to to stop having ai in the races. The thing we're thinking of now is make a league for every event. (just pop the same race after each other 5 times to get around the minimum 5 races thing) So we can adjust the number of drivers to the number of signups. So when we have 18 people signed up we change that to 18/4 JUST so we get no ai drivers. and then for next race we need to redo the whole league to set it back to 20 when everyone's present again.. Or, you know, reserves fill the slots. Which brings us to my last big point of why we can never use this league mode the way it's supposed to (like.. have IT keep score for us or something) Is the inflexibility with reserves. Reserves are not PART of the league. you can just invite randoms to fill the spots. And if they are there they both score points for the driver they replace (REALLY WEIRD) as well as their team, or not at all. Firstly, for us and most leagues we DO need them to score for themselves (albeit invisibly) so when they eventually get a full time seat they keep those points. <-- but if this was the only thing we could live with it. But we do absolutely need them to score for their team, because that's what our whole team game, and 1 reserve driver per team format is build on. while OBVIOUSLY not scoring for the driver they replace.. because scoring poins for someone else is wrong in SO many ways man.. incredible that this setting got in in this fashion. But yeah. The most obvious improvements to me: -Have us disable ai with 1 setting and force it in NO WAY WHATSOEVER via other options. No. A. I. even if there's only 3 damn people. On demand or scheduled. -Make it so we can add 30 drivers (at least) to the league (3 per team) that all can score for themselves and their team. First 2 of a team that join the lobby are in, third one that tries gets a message "There are no available slots in your team for this session. If you want to join as spectator ask the league admin for an invite" This gives us so much more flexibility. and would make us actually able to use the league mode to the the standings for us. -But while it doesn't apply to us: Also make a setting where you can add (at least) 30 drivers to the league where reserves are NOT assigned to a team and are free agents. make both options. Until both issues are fixed, League mode is as good as unusable to us. As said we're gonna try it (1 league per event, delete, repeat) for the next season because we HAVE to because you took away our championship mode that was perfect as it was. But KNOW that this increases our workload a LOT just to do quali on a different day. And I already forsee a LOT of issues with late minute people that can't be there after all and we would have to REMAKE THE ENTIRE LEAGUE OR have an ai car in the mix because we're 1 car short then. So I'm already very very very very much NOT looking forward to use it. EVEN race per race. If you guys have any workarounds for the problems we're facing that wouldn't need a patch you're welcome to share with us too. We really need to make this work because if there's no park ferme.. what's the point of doing full quali. and we just can't have ai drivers. Ps. Just thought of this: If someone CAN be present for the race and not for quail... we are now FORCED to have an ai car drive quali for that person... unghosted... ai car.. on track in a multiplayer quali. Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.
