Gaming Setup

  • Platforms
    Steam
  • Peripherals
    Controller
  1. Someone must've already gotten it, if you believe Steam statistics (or they unlocked it with some tool) According to my own stats right now, it too would take me at least 500 more hours to complete..
  2. Earlier today it seems like there were some connection issues. I was kicked out of a mp quick match lobby after a few races (network timeout, see attachment), after which there was no way to progress through the menus. I was stuck with a black screen for minutes before I quit the game via task manager (Alt+F4 didn't work). Playing on PC/Steam, WIndows 10 1809

    Headlights Problem During Night Races

    I just tried in free play: NIght race: Headlights turn off briefly Day race: Headlights turn on/flash briefly I skip the intro things all the time as well, but so far I didn't see this issue (also playing on PC, WIn10 1809, DX12)

    GRID - Mode/Feature/Content Suggestions

    I would like to see some support for Cyrillic, Japanese, Chinese and other alphabets in the game.

    Headlights Problem During Night Races

    Never happened to me, on what system are you playing?

    GRID - Mode/Feature/Content Suggestions

    To add a few more menu inconsistencies Playing through "Tuner" career, the cursor jumps back to the very first Touring TC-2 event, which is annoying when using controller as main input (there's also no way to jump from the most left event "over" to the right) After editing a livery or exiting livery editor (I forgot), jumps back to the first car in the list Race car tuning menu: X button (Xbox 360 controller default) is for "reset", however X is "apply" everywhere else (e.g. in settings), also no way to cancel from a reset tune (have to do it all over, automatically applies) Regarding AI: They mostly seem to drive in one big bunch, with finishing times almost the same +/- within a few seconds. This never happens in multiplayer (speaking from GRID 2 experience...), there's always some people way behind and way ahead
  7. I can confirm this issue on PC too, game crashes with some access violation error when switching to Global Highscores after career event sometimes. Just happened in the "Night Terrors" event after the first race.

    GRID - Mode/Feature/Content Suggestions

    GRID 2 had a "test car" thing in the garage where you could drive a car around a test track (I forgot which one it was). With the big selection of cars in GRID it would be nice to have such a thing, maybe even a dedicated test track that's part oval, part curvy track, part crash test/break check/drag strip area

    GRID - Mode/Feature/Content Suggestions

    The "Find matches" screen should have some kind of indicator that the game is still.... working, GRID 2 had a spinning thing in the corner, in GRID 2019 there's a bit of smoke in the background but it goes away after a few seconds and doesn't come back.

    [GRID 2019] Multiplayer Thread

    @IconicJB pretty much said it all. I played a few rounds online, Skirmish feels slow and empty (like it is set in some kind of post-apocalyptic world lol), and I had no fun with the AI racers constantly crashing me out of the race. I want to play against humans online, not bots, even if the lobby may be half empty.

    Buy cars

    Have you tried HOLDING the buy button for 2-3 seconds? I missed this at first too, there should be a ring going around the "purchase" button in the bottom right corner

    GRID - Mode/Feature/Content Suggestions

    I have a few suggestions, mostly minor: I would like to see some more explanations on the options, for example: At the very start of the game you are asked to set brightness, I know how it works from other games (other people may not), but I was a bit confused what the two (and one invisible) GRID logos meant at first (a small hint would be enough, such as "adjust brightness until black logo is slightly visible" etc.) Clutch override in Gameplay settings (no idea what this means); the tuning menu before a race has explanations, something like that would be nice to see it some other places Minor bugs: You have to hold the <whatever> button to buy a car, I was confused first and hit the button a few times until I noticed the circle going around. I think the word "(hold)" is missing in the text here, it does say "(hold)" when selling though (I also don't see this mechanic used anywhere else, maybe replace it with a confirmation window like in older GRIDs) Global HIghscores don't load properly when I finish in top 100, it's stuck at place 100, sometimes shows my places and the rest starting at 100 Various improvement suggestions: Free Play: Remember choices after race ends, in case I want to tweak my event or play the same again Maybe show a list of available cars right there in the first selection menu, I had to search a bit for the Volvo.. Event name is purely cosmetical, wasn't obvious, I thought I was somehow starting a customized career event Free Play, car selection and other menus: You should be able to move around to the beginning of the selection after reaching the end (have to scroll aaaaaall the way back otherwise) In many places I find that a drop down would be preferrable to an (what feels like) endless scrolling list (race track location, car class...) Some kind of multiplayer pre-setup when joining for the first time: Adjust communication settings (enable/disable voice), make push to talk the DEFAULT Let me skip the intro video, maybe even the intro races... I'm playing on PC/Steam, Win10, Xbox 360 gamepad Going back and forth between GRID2 and GRID 2019, the biggest thing however would be the car physics and handling. It requires learning all over again, it's more sim than arcade, feels totally unlike GRID 1 and 2, not sure if chaning this is an option. I played for 3 hours and ofc it doesn't feel natural to me yet. Maybe something like "classic mode"/"arcade mode" would be possible? You know, throwing cars into corners without worrying too much, in new GRID I feel like even touching the handbrake will throw me out of the race completely.

    GRID pre-order links

    Amazon Germany lists the following editions (depending on if you chose PC, "PC Download" (Steam code), console (PS4/Xbox), two of the three are available): Day One Edition Ultimate Special What are the differences, or how do they compare to the versions on Steam (Standard, Ultimate w/ early access)? Based on pricing alonw it seems that: PC Day One = Steam Standard PC Ultimate = Steam Ultimate PC Download Ultimate = Steam Ultimate PC Download Special = Steam Standard Console Day One = Standard Console Ultimate = Ultimate The Grid preorder website lists "Launch Edition" (= Day One Edition) and Ultimate.
  14. Yeah it was a way to communicate in multiplayer in the original GRID. It's not like Xbox messaging, there wass no "inbox" or anything like that, it was just in lobbies and in races. Voice has the same issues: People curse, people mic spam (i.e. play loud music and sounds to annoy others), and there are people who forget to turn off their mics (a common thing in GRID 2). I would assume everyone on PC has a keyboard but not everone has a working mic or headset, at least I didn't for the longest time. Sometimes you can not or don't want to talk/speak with voice to random people on the internet.

    The music of the menu

    Nathan Boddy / Office Gossip hasn't released any new songs in almost 10 years, and I haven't stumbled upon anything quite like it in any other games 😞 The GRID 1 menu music was awesome
