  1. So after the last hugely disappointing patch, a lot of people giving up on the game altogether, and since multiplayer is still a glitch minefield with all the things that can go wrong or mess it all up, (I mean half the stuff we're used to by now but it just goes to show how bad it all is.) I'm wondering: (1) Will we be seeing an actual patch for this game? (2) In what timeframe will that be? With actual, I mean a patch that will fix those issues with multiplayer and has people think after installing it "wow, the game is seriously less broken than it was before now!" @BarryBL (3) will the next patch, or an upcoming patch, actually contain the long list of fixes that are needed to make this game playable online? Or (4) Are you (guys) well happy with keeping us on a leash with patches that fix NOTHING. and slowly cruise to the next time we have to pay 70 euro's for a broken (issues even in very controlled e-sport environment) game? Thank you very much. (I've numbered the questions to make it easier to see if they've all been answered)

    too much rain

    i thought there was about a 20% chance of rain every session on most tracks so seems about right.
  3. Just be patient. it's only a month and a half after they replicated a very immersion breaking bug. This game has a 12-month lifespan so it's absolutely no biggy they take months to fix these issues. Besides, you already paid. what do they gain by fixing the game for plebs that already gave them their money? It's a sad affair that F1 doesn't realize the potential of a good, working f1 game. And instead let's codies half-arse their way to some easy cash grabs.

    Hanoi dropped from 2021 calendar

    Very true. and maybe then they could also get around to fixing this game first. 1 working game is better than 5 unstable glitch simulators. stop with the obvious money grabs and start to deliver quality. And a functioning game
  5. Ladies and gents, Last week we've past the 2000th bug report topic for this 4 months old game! This went by totally unnoticed, but as this has to be some kind of new record, I think some kinds of celebrations are in order. Of course, some of them got combined over time, so we might have crossed that milestone some time ago. We're now at 2157 topics and counting! so it's still going really well. Big shoutout to the guys having to read and respond to all of those, your job can't be easy at an average of 19 bug report topics a day. (For the record, I only counted the "Gameplay issues and bugs TA" topics, and not the "Systems and connectivity TA" topics, which would add another 300 topics to the mix) Everyone must feel really proud of reaching such a milestone. And this game keeps on exceeding expectations. Only last week we got the long-awaited return of the VSC glitch (https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/63166-bug-pc-vsc-bug-is-back/?tab=comments#comment-575541) and more and more new ones are getting introduced with every new patch. Big thanks to all those people finding time to file those bug reports. As you can see it's really helping. My suggestion for a celebration event is the release of a "2000 bug reports" themed helmet, gloves, and underpants DLC. But if you have any better ideas feel free to shout! I'm proud of you guys.
  6. I don't think they don't care, they just have bigger fish to fry. Like the host getting a 2 second head start. But playing with people you know/trust is a lot better with games like these anyway. you're too much dependant on the other people behaving 😛

    2000th bug report topic celebration.

    ACC has a lot smaller developer team I've heard and that has a lot fewer issues and tiresome bugs happening, so it can be done. if your priorities are right. Besides, I don't even think getting a few more people on it would endanger its profitability (but maybe that's my naivety) I don't really believe this game is so close to break-even profit-wise, that getting more people in to make it better and actually work is a super risky thing to do. Some things are just sensible investments though. as, in the long run, a working game will be way more viable and this game could have 20 times the online player base if the game actually functioned, giving it waaaaaay more exposure on twitch and youtube, boosting sales even more. now people who see the game on twitch only see the ******** and people being so, so, so tired of this stuff... If they don't realize that, then this whole 'codies f1 game' endeavor was just a HUGE missed opportunity and a big shame for all gaming f1 fans that FOM hasn't managed to find a developer for their license that actually tried. (and for the record, I do realize all the individual people working on the game have its best interest at heart and are really trying their best) But the evidence is undeniable that: It's-Not-Working-Out-Like-This

    The thing is. the fact that we 'facilitate' doesn't make codies policies and way of scamming their customers less disgusting. They have a monopoly on f1 games. and people are always gonna buy it. You can't expect people to make the right call in these matters. People just want to play f1 games. however **** they might be because there is no alternative. Doesn't mean we can't call them on their scams. their lies. and their total incompetence. YES, I bought it. But then again THEY said they were gonna make multiplayer a priority. They promised the world. and didn't openly communicate the terrible state the game that we would buy was in. They even pay reviewers to keep quiet about all the bugs so you need to buy it to find out that they've been lying again. More funny still: they want us to vote the game racing game of the year 🤣 They have literally no shame.

    State of F1 online multiplayer

    There's countless posts on this.. The thing is it's almost impossible to have a race without bugs. https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/59279-the-state-of-multiplayer/ https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/62120-state-of-multiplayer/ https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/58588-multiplayer-to-do-list/ Here's a selection of some of the topics i made about the issues in the game. They are not at all ALL the issues. just the ones I found most glaring. All of these points they have been unable to fix for months now. All the while introducing new bugs, and even REintroducing bugs they fixed in previous patches (like the vsc bug) https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/63166-bug-pc-vsc-bug-is-back/ I, for one, don't know what game you're playing that you haven't found anything wrong with it. Time trial is the only game mode that runs without a lot of issues at this point.

    State of F1 online multiplayer

    They don't care unfortunately. You gave them your 70 euro's already, And besides. The monopoly they have on f1 games ensures they will sell however trash they make their game. For me FOM is as much to blame as the people in charge at codemasters. They let this **** go on and on and let Codies prostitute the name of their sport in this way. But all the while the people who bought this game feel rightfully cheated, They just ask you to vote their game racing game of the year. Like it's NOT trash 😂 It's absolutely amazing that human beings can disrespect their customers so much. They must think we're ATM's or something. Or bots

    2000th bug report topic celebration.

    I hope you can appreciate the HUUUUGE greyzone between 0 bugs and 2000+ bug reports in 4 months. The thing is we're at a point now where making an entirely new game is less work than fixing all the bugs in this one. Exactly! the people in charge at codemasters are cheapskates that aren't ambitious enough with their game. There's clearly not enough people on the job, fixing 1 bug at a time all the while introducing 3 new ones with every patch. But I think we're all in agreement that codemasters SHOULD put more effort in their f1 games which is why the comparison is spot on. Want to make something good? you need to invest the time and effort. Codies have been half-arsing this for way too long now. (And if they're incapable, they should admit defeat and give the license to a more capable company)

    2000th bug report topic celebration.

    And it would only be right. This is a HUGE milestone. I don't think any other game has such a dedicated community trying so, so hard to do the developers' job. And we only have to pay 70 euro's to be a playtester. It's a bargain if you think about it. Who wouldn't want to play a broken game and spend months filing bug reports with little to no return?
  15. A detailed description of the issue. I've heard of this glitch often, never had it happen to me before. It's absolutely amazing. In the clip you can see embassy going briefly off track while going slowish. this has me overtake him for a split sec, after which the game tells me I made an illegal overtake. so I let him back past and then HE gets an illegal overtake on me. ad infinitum. After a while brownie gets passed (Without any issue amazingly) but then I get the same **** with ANOTHER driver (hz3rd) The guy (br0wniE) who's POV the clip is from apparently knows how to fix this. But this is a good example of what playing your game feels like right now. A minefield of glitches that you have to try to navigate while also driving an f1 car. Clear cut case of why not having servers is bad.. just 2 clients thinking they know best and little to no communication between them, or a server that tells who is in the right. Also codemasters have in their infinite wisdom decided that giving pitstop penalties is a good idea. This means that if this bug occurs, people who do overtake under sc get a PITSTOP penalty that, in case of another pitstop, can't be removed by the stewards after the race. A very clear case of bugs being made worse by terrible game design. Platform PC What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) Latest (was yesterday) Ranked/Unranked/Leagues Unranked league race Wired or Wireless Connection? Mix The amount of players in your session? 18 + 2 coms Were you the host? No Did this issue happens for everyone in the session, just some people or just yourself? What did they see? For at least 3 people (Bica, Embassy, Hz3rd) We need to be able to make your problem happen internally so we can fix the issue. Can you make the problem happen again? I guess do close calls like this under sc and have the game glitch out clients not communicate with eachother. How do you make the problem happen? By playing your game. I'm as good as done with it tho. and with these bug reports that you guys use as toilet paper. 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. No. I ragequitted shortly after and you're not fixing it anyway so I'm done bugging people for report codes if the results are HUGELY disappointing patches like the one last week, that only proved to reintroduce old bugs....... Besides. people are getting tired of me asking. I was the only one with any faith you had the intention to fix it to begin with, and it's gone now. Video of the issue, including timestamps.

    F1 2021 TRACKS

    I know what you're saying. i play some ACC and iracing as well. But like many people i'm mainly into F1. and codies have become masters in abusing that. Besides. i like the handling and driving well enough. It's the bugs (and penalties) that i think are way worse than they have any right to be in a 70 euro game.

    F1 2021 TRACKS

    It makes it more sad that the core game is actually good. It just doesn't matter if the game is practically impossible to enjoy because of all the bugs. In the end it's still broken. I only play online and about half the races go to **** in one way or another.

    F1 2021 TRACKS

    Cause this game got a 91 on ign that must have been bought or reviewed by someone who played for an hour and isn't really a racing game enthusiast. I'm not saying what i think will happen. I'm saying what i think SHOULD happen if the people pulling the strings at codies had a spit of decency. What they're doing now is theft on a yearly basis. Using lies and false promises as their favoured methods of keeping people onboard, instead of fixing their trash.

    F1 2021 TRACKS

    Which is why. CLEARLY a change is needed. It's not working as it is. And CLEARLY they should, for once, fix first what they made people pay a premium for. Before having people pay another premium for another broken game. I know they make money this way. But would they really want to be known as a company that screws the fans over year after year just because they got the F1 game monopoly? Besides. at one point FOM will figure out this ******** is not the best advertisement for their brand.
  20. A detailed description of the issue. The bug, allowing anyone but the host to ignore the end of the vsc period (as long as the vsc is over before the timer you have to get back in the delta runs out) is back, after being fixed.

We confirmed it's back for anyone (but the host) We need to be able to make your problem happen internally so we can fix the issue. Can you make the problem happen again? Do what is done in the video How do you make the problem happen? See video.. it's not hard. 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. Nope sorry. not needed though cause you already fixed it once Video of the issue, including timestamps. Did you stream the session? https://clips.twitch.tv/DeafSpicySalsifyStoneLightning I mean........................... It took me a while to report this because I just couldn't believe you guys managed to sneak the bug back in so i had to check it for myself.. You've outdone yourself Codemasters. You really did.

    Who invented the strict penalty system?

    Well that's because "regular" is a total cornercutting madhouse then and That should be fixed then. Although just a 'better' way of calculating if time was gained in a corner or not is preferable. I get what you're saying, but if the end result is now we have 2 garbage cc modes and neither of them is realistic. On regular you can get away with cutting almost every chicane even in quali.
  22. Is the controller fine? are you sure they both go to 100% throttle when fully pressing down the trigger? I assume you're using the same car as if you don't turn on equal car performance then obviously the williams would be slower than the merc. (although maybe not even that much on the straight)

    F1 2021 TRACKS

    Guys, guys! f1 2020 is nowhere near done yet. IT's still a very expensive beta. No need to talk about f1 2021 yet. They won't have time for that considering all the things they still have to fix on this one. They wouldn't want to have so many people pay 70 euro's for such a broken game right? Codemasters aren't thieves.. If anything f1 2021 should be a dlc for this game. That way they finally have time to fix one and make one actually work.
  24. @BarryBL For the record, What is see most people reporting is the AI not getting the blue flags, and thus huge trains forming. (although some people also seem to report themselves not getting the blue flags when approaching ai cars) So i think these are 2 seperate issues. One of them is not all flags showing up/being registered after you reload a session (or rejoin a mp session too btw), which is a very old bug. It can happen randomly too but usually after joining a session mid-race. The other one is the AI not always getting blue flags and so huge trains forming in singleplayer races. which I wouldn't know what cauises this cause I don't play sp enough for it.

    Let the lobby creator restart the event.

    Very, very, very much needed. Much bigger control for one (or more) lobby directors is a much needed addition. Mainly to restart events/change setings without rehost, remove unfair grid penalties, as well as the ability to kick people on the fly.
