  1. 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.

    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?
  3. 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.
  8. 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.

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.
  10. 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.
  12. @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.
  14. A detailed description of the issue. People got held in the pits for no reason and it also caused people who retired to glitch out on the straight for some reason.

No idea, unknown cause How do you make the problem happen? We don't know the cause. just that it probably got introduced in the last patch cause we hadn't seen this one before.

  15. A detailed description of the issue. Br0wnie is stationary yet the game still thinks he's driving (look at the speed) and then explodes the tires right before it stops.

  16. We're 3 months into the life of a game that's barely, if at all, gonna live past its first birthday. My team is good enough it seems and chapeau for that. but the multiplayer is in a worse state than ever, and the lack of patches and updates is beyond comprehension. Every league I know of is already struggling to keep the disillusioned drivers aboard because despite promises suggesting otherwise, this game continues the trend of having more buggy MP than the last one. There's still countless issues from the spectator standpoint. (Startlights, leaderboard glitches, incorrect tire info, incorrectly outlined tires, still no penalties) But also as a driver there's just TOO MUCH that can go wrong and require a restart. Some examples: - Cars of disconnected people causing havok on the starts/restarts (Made worse by the fact that you cant take control BEFORE the start so there's always an ai car driving away as the lights go on and then being an unghosted obscacle. in the first lap.. with more chance of chaos as the driver tries to retake control (and there aren't even lights in my experience anymore so you better get your timing right) - Safety car still sometimes gives the instruction to overtake incorrectly and then DSQ'ing within a second after doing so (no time to slow down or something) - Safety car gets glitched out by the same bug thing that messes up the leaderboards in laps 2-3 requiring the field to overtake the s.c. sometimes etc. - Delta's are STILL unreliable. Especially on the start straight they not update/are wrong at the line. But people photofinishing behind can win, and sometimes both or NONE of 2 cars have drs..... - Screenfreezes as people join/leave sessions. - Penalties awarded by the game for things that we DONT want the game to give penalties for, cause the game OBVIOUSLY can't reliably give the correct penalties for those. we have stewards for that. - Tires in f2 being random so some people are unfairly stuck on the harder tire. - Entire lobbies glitching out because 1 driver's pc missed it's check/his game crashed. - Grip hack Cheaters (Although that's more of an open lobby/ranked issue.. in leagues they just get respectfully asked to move their folly elsewhere) - Ghosting needs to be reworked in general as it is unusable in either mode now (AI'ing disconnects should ALWAYS ghost.. even when ghosting is off) I can go on but I think my point is made. @BarryBL How is it possible that we have to wait so long for more updates? How does your statement that multiplayer is getting more attention this time around relate to the amount of updates and fixes we're seeing? Can you explain to me why not more effort is being put into testing and fixing these glaring bugs right now? We should be getting an update every 2 weeks the state this game is in. Just TRY stuff at least. it can barely be worse than it is now. The only meaningful updates that have come out so far in three (3!!!!) months are the hold button for ERS and the multiplayer car for time trial.. The first one after a huge "you think you do, but you don't" style turnaround from you guys. It was the first thing that came up in the beta and still took months. The bugs are still there. Just to compare. I sometimes play paradox games on the side. Recently CK3 was released, and just like with F1 2020, in pure Paradox fashion, it was very buggy at launch. This is where the comparison ends though. Because within a month of release, Paradox released patch 1.1. I want to invite you to have a look at the patch notes here: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/threads/ck3-dev-diary-42-1-1-patch-notes.1428193/ Now those are patch notes. Written by a company that wants to fix their bugs. AND don't want to let their customers in the dark. They contain more text than all the text in all of the f1 games combined, and are just a blast to read for anyone who likes fixes 😉 How good would it be if we could get one of those for the f1 games once. Where you read, and read, and all the things that annoy you in one way or another, just got called out by name in text and FIXED. Those developer diaries in general are super enlightening. They have us get to know the developers. what they like about working on the game. aspects of it they find cool. I'd love to know them better and have explained to me why the priorities are so far away from a stable multiplayer. IMO it is stable multiplayer that will take the game around it's lifeyear in healthy fashion. it is what gets streamed the most, gives the most exposure for both f1 and your game in general. Right now mp is only making f1 2020 the laughing stock of online racing games, and multiple leagues are already discussing moving to ACC, DESPITE most of the communities being super f1 focussed. It's just not fun anymore. We've been lied to for too long. Nothing is changing. It's getting worse every year. We went from July until now without any meaningful updates to multiplayer stability. And although the driving itself is great and fun while it works, the continuous frustrations of having to restart way too many sessions, getting the screenfreezes whenever someone joins or leaves (0,2 sec stutter can easily be your quali gone) , and the streams looking trash half the time because the info on screen is not correct, just is too much for many people, myself included. I've just kinda lost hope now myself too. Seems like you're not really bothered about multiplayer after all. For people who only play multiplayer the amount of money that you dare to ask for the buggy mess that you get almost feels like theft. Especially considering the effort that obviously went into adding a microtransaction store to the game. Something that's not gonna be able to get used a lot if people stop playing your game very early on.. But hey, I must know nothing about it, and having even the most dedicated f1 fans stop playing your game within a few months because it's just too buggy is probably a very smart move that I just don't get.

    Can't accelerate under Safety Car

    I think that's because you can apply so little throttle when it's 'capped' that kinda doing the opposite to shortshifting counteracts it a bit. Problem still persists tho.
  18. Bicarda

    Can't accelerate under Safety Car

    It's a very old bug and the biggest cause seems to be overzealous handholding. It happens whether you're first or not (altho if you're first and close behind the safety car it gets more profound) It even happens to cars that are still catching up to the back of the train, and results in dangerous situations when suddenly you get throttle control back. I've made multiple posts about this in the past to no avail. Come on codies. This has no place in an f1 game especially for people not running assists. It's unfair sometimes. dangerous most of the time, and immersion-breaking all the time.

    Who invented the strict penalty system?

    It's amazing. Also how minimal corner cuts (tire on the line) almost always result in a warning, whereas if you stay off track longer, the game lets you get away with it. All because of some arbitrary "if you go faster than the ai during your time off track you get a warning' rule) Everybody who has seen f1 knows that people don't get penalties for that like, ever. (although they might have their laptime invalidated) Especially not while fighting wheel to wheel. Only if they Consistently cut/go wide on the same corner 3+ times the stewards are gonna start giving warning flags. They said so literally in last weeks grand prix. No f1 driver, ever, in the history of f1, has gotten a 3 second time penalty for crossing the while line by 1 millimeter, 3 times in a race, at different corners. A big help I think would be if that.. 3 warnings = a penalty system would only apply to the same corner. (and even.. side of the track at a specific corner) so nog going wide in turn 1 on lap 1, then some silly wheel to wheel action in lap 17 in turn 8 and then in the second to last lap slightly go wide somewhere else and THAT'S A 3 SECOND PENALTY FOR YOU. That's just not fun game design. Especially if we can't even see said penalties on stream.
  20. Just questions all ❤️ Very much interested in answers to all these questions.

    2020 F1 Esports Fail

    Fair enough. I thought you were finding excuses for the game but if i was wrong in that i apologize.
  22. Bicarda

    2020 F1 Esports Fail

    I wasn't on about just the thing I quoted. You just start by openly wondering if it isn't their own fault which only serves to distract from the issue at hand. the state of the game. No other game I know of has any of the issues that this game has, and yet everything you say about other variables and whatnot goes for any other game as well. So as I see it, you're just trying to distract with a totally irrelevant discussion. Everything you say is true but it's NOT the reason why this game has 100x more problems than any other e-sport title.. or game in general. They had to change the weather to dry because the game isn't working They had to disable rejoining because the game isn't working The rpm glitch is still there. And that's just the things we saw from the heavily guided and censored stream. It's very clear that almost all the issues regarding online come from the lack of dedicated servers and dependancy on steam, combined with just some big flaws in the game that have become increasingly bad over the last years. This all after the BIG PRIORITY that online was said to be this year. And when someone points this out you start rambling about how hard making games is in general and how many things can go wrong turning this into a discussion that is completely off-topic.
  23. Bicarda

    2020 F1 Esports Fail

    The lengths you go through my man. Even the e-sporters are apparently allowed to say the game is 'not ready'. Not saying all you say is wrong or not true. but it's all beside the point.. the game IS in a horrible state and you pretending otherwise doesn't help anyone.
  24. Obviously. But the engine mode ban will probably stop us from changing the fuel any longer, removing another part of strategy from the game, So OP's suggestion, as has been suggested in the beta as well ever since the introduction of this oversimplified ers system, Is that we can MAP the ers before the race (as part of the setup) so we don't have to change it during the race but we can still (more realisticallly) adapt ers deployment to the track/sector and the rest of the setup. This brings more strategy into the game, promotes practicing/trying things and finding ways to get the most out of the car, as well as fix the issue with the barely charging ers on high downforce circuits. (That we can do nothing about under the current 'it iz what it iz' system, except for running suboptimal setups that work better with the ers)

    2020 F1 Esports Fail

    Well then still they could easily reconnected and continued driving. But they disabled that in the e-sports build because it is too glitched to behold, and the timings at the end would be wrong and they would have a 2 second fastest lap on rejoin most likely. Also, disconnect from steam (according to the game, steam is usually fine) happens without your internet cutting out as well. but they shouldn't be dependant on steams functioning in the first place. that and this p2p solution seems only good for messing around in open lobbies and not for any serious race.
