    Tha same thing hs just happened to me at Bahrain
  2. Was competing in the Bahrain GP in career mode. Went through the practice sessions, qualified on pole, ran the race and was never headed except during the pit stops. Passed a number of back markers and was in the lead as we crossed the finish line. The game then said, race completed and put me in 19th! Bit annoying. Has anyone seen similar behavior?

    Why is this forum called "Technical Assistance"?

    OK, apologies, but nevertheless Codemasters' personnel do appear here on this forum from time to time; and, for the record, in other venues they have steadfastly refused to respond to any of my formal requests for help, as did Gigabyte. Nvidia on the other hand provided exemplary support.

    I installed the recently released Nvidia driver and the game now runs in DX 12. Very happy. Seems the driver install did the trick. For the record, absolutely fabulous support from Nvidia. They answered my query the very next day and their suggestions were really helpful. They were also really interested in how the problem resolved its self. Qudos to them. Also for the record - absolutely no response from Codemasters or Gigabyte!

    [PC][General] My Game Keeps Crashing

    Hi All, just to round out my part of the thread. Nvidia released a new driver a week or so ago. I installed the driver using their tools (which uninstalled the original driver), and hey presto, the game runs really well in DX12!!! There was nothing in the release notes that related to game crashes so I suspect that the simple act of reinstalling the driver using the Nvidia tools did the trick.

    I have a Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 GPU. I have to say the response from them has been just as bad as Codemasters - absolutely nothing. I worked for may years managing the development of realtime aircraft tracking systems technology that is deployed around the world. Happy that we had a different concept for customer and systems support! Looks like it is back to the Xbox and junk the PC.
  7. I am very confused by the forum title - Codemasters has failed to provide me with any technical assistance at all!!!! The game still refuses to run in DX12 and my PC exceeds all of the recommended specs and is brand new - configured specifically for this so called F1 2019 sim. Absolutely no answers from Codemasters. What a joke and now way to receive any form of compensation.

    Crash F1 2019 DIRECTX 12

    Has there been any movement on the DirectX 12 issue? The sim still crashes for me at start up. Secondly, what, if any, are the differences between playing DX11 and DX 12? Just curious as I am yet to achieve a sim session in DX12.

    There is something strange then, maybe specific to a GPU implementation. I have a Gigabyte GeForce 2080 and the gate will not even start in DX12

    Sabba, is your system running ok in DX12 now as well?
  11. Thanks, I have a brand new PC with gigabyte Geforce RTX 2080 (so no old drivers to remove) and the game has never successfully loaded at all in DX12. (The DX11 version on steam works fine). I have had one interruption telling me the game resolution has changed..... This was after I had edited the MFD positions.
  12. Hi All, continuing to play my new boy card 🙂 I am having difficulty in finding F1 2019 on DVD in Aus, so looks like I will be forced to use Steam. My question, once I have purchased the game, can I down load it to my local PC, then simply play the game direct without having to be logged into Steam et al? Thanks for youy patience andhelp
  13. Cheers ptank, We are a fully fledged Mac household so I have the luxury of "reserving" the PC for sim use only. I would like to understand the potential performance impacts of running simhub (or similar peripheral managers) in conjunction with the game. I am looking to include a button box and perhaps build my own wheel as some point. One of the biggest attractions to a PC base for me is the ability to mod up a custom rig. The consoles seem to limit your options somewhat.
  14. Thanks Coffer, My envisaged build is: CPU - Ryzen 5 3600x GPU - Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming 8G OC Mobo - Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming 5 (WIFI) Together with all the other bits, RAM, cooler and so on, here in Aus = $2,500 ish. This ought to give a good basis to expand in the future, potential second GPU if it is needed. Just looking for the specs for the next generation Xbox, I think they have been released.
