  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!"


    (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)

    Any news about the fix? @BarryBL

    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.

    my advice for f1 2021 is to release it as a Dlc, in order to dedicate yourself to f1 2022 for the revolution that will take place in f1 and for the new consoles that in 2021 will not yet be at full power. Releases an update for f1 2020, with 2021 cars and circuits. Remove hanoi and add Imola, Istanbul and portimao into the game. The best solution is this. @BarryBL

    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

    Nobody really cares about Time Trial times, but even those just go to show how much care goes into the game from the Devs. Lately there has been increasing amount of cheaters with insanely fast cars in Ranked lobbies and it's pretty much impossible to find one without there being one. 


    Why do you have "Ranked" when you don't supervise it?

    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 😛

    Yeah but they don’t have the sales figures of COD and never will. COD is played all around the world where as F1 is a very specific sport/game. 

    With less income they are unable to expand to the heights of Acitivision or EA for example. 

    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

    100% true! We all, myself included, facilitate this behavior. Like I said, I’m skipping the next one. Not that they’ll care about one less customer, but it’ll save me some headaches. 
    I rather support a studio that has a passion for their games and the sport. For instance, I’m really impressed with what Milestone has done with the MotoGP franchise.

    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.

    Again I kind of ask for examples of what it is that you guys are experiencing that I don't seem to be experiencing. It's a pretty decent game, there's bugs yes and the pay-wall thing indicates Codies or their Masters at least (like every share holder in every company ever) is greedy for more.

    But I really fail to see what in particular has vexed you all so about this version of the game. A month and a half into it I have not found anything that makes me feel I will never buy another F1 game from these guys again. 

    I'm not a bot or an employee, by the way, though there is no way for me to prove that. Just really curious. 

    There's countless posts on this.. 
    The thing is it's almost impossible to have a race without bugs. 


    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) 

    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.

    The amount off issues with online multiplayer is over whelming. The fact it takes Codemasters so long to even respond and fix these issues is beyond a joke. For lots off ppl who race online and race within Leauges it's frustrating, I've never played an F1 title with so many problems. I'm not going to go over what the issues are I'm sure Codemasters have good idea. As it would just take too long. If this online issues persist I'm afraid this could be my last ever F1 game, I just can't race like this anymore which is a shame GG codies.

    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

    But that's the way it goes almost everywhere I am registered, in almost every game forum.
    Can anyone please list me any game for which you can find absolutely 0 bugs?

    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.

    How? Warzones creators Activision have a bigger amount of resources and time compared to CM. 

    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)

  10. 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? 

    • Agree 1

    • 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
    • What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) 
      Latest (was yesterday)

    • 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.

    If you only play online, then play iracing. Its a dedicated online racing sim. The handling is better, different cars and will improve your racing hand over fist.... I used iracing for 3 months before my first real life race in an mx5 at brands hatch. I got two top 10 finishes thanks to practice. 

    And in the long run would probably work out cheaper than buying F1 every year.

    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. 

  12. Just now, dshepsman said:

    I agree with you. TBF, its not completely trash. The handling is much better than last years game. Im loving My Team. But the bugs are still there, I'm still not a fan of the 'Arcade/Lowest common denominator' - things like auto driving on pit/pit out/driving to grid. Also the 'cut straight to fast lap' instead of driving out for practice/qualie. Give me a menu option to turn that **** off! Also, Give me telemetry. Its in the game, but have to use an external program to view it - which i guess isnt the end of the world. But give me the ride height! How can i set the ride height without knowing how often im bottoming out!

    But CM is a business. And has been making F1 games for 10 years or so. It wouldnt be doing it if it was losing money....

    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.

    Ah, poor youngsters.....

    This has been happening in gaming for decades..... EA started it with FIFA, Madden NFL etc. The new game was exactly the same as the previous year, with a roster update. Maybe a slight graphics update. These companies make the most money from reusing the previous games code and tweaking it. Minimal effort, maximum profit.

    The only way to stop this from happening is for EVERYONE from buying the new game. And that, no matter how hard you try, is not going to happen. Call of Duty is another example (not that ive played it), but the amount of people that pre-order it for £60/£80/£100 and then complain that its exactly the same as the old version. Or a short single player. Or whatever.

    Gone are the days people wait for reviews. But then, how many reviewers will slate the latest release of a high profile game these days?

    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. 

  14. 4 minutes ago, dshepsman said:

    Erm, i'd like to assume youre joking. If youre not, is this the first Codemasters game youve played? The same bugs have been present year on year. And of course CM would rather have more people buy a brand new copy of a full price game than an older game with DLC.

    No previous F1 game has been fixed before the new one was released. 

    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.

    People have forgotten over the years that the strict ruleset wasn't really meant to be realistic, it was meant to be strict (and thus not realistic as the stewards aren't strict for people extending track limits). It was introduced in one of the F1 2015 updates, and basically considered a "hardcore mode" back then. Somehow over the years people have started to think strict is somehow realistic and partly because of this, the community demanded it to be used in the new ranked mode that was introduced to the game couple of years back... If we would've just told them to modify the normal setting, we wouldn't be having this conversation!

    My suggestion is still to send feedback that the normal corner cutting setting is too lenient 🙂 

    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. 

  16. 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) 

  17. 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. 

  18. @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. 

  19. 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.
