    [PC][F2] Cold tyres after formation lap [R2]

    Interesting. Maybe it was one of those bugs that persisted because nobody spotted it.

    Patch Notes for 1.04 – Discussion Thread

    Who said that they will change the handling drastically? As I understand it the update is effectively an downforce increase, so the handling should stay fundamentally the same.
  3. So how would people feel if they had started the dlc thing in 2015 and we still had essentially 2015 graphics, physics and ffb but with cutrrently cars and teams?

    [PC][F2] Cold tyres after formation lap [R2]

    The tyre temperature resetting at the start of the race was always a thing as far as I can remember. It was definitely the case in f1 2017 and 2018. Probably it's by design, but I can't think of a reason why they would chose to do that.

    F1 cars have no grip and no downforce

    I suspect that soft settings are a bit quicker, at least for most people. However, for me going a bit stiffer feels so much better that's what I do most of the time. I haven't yet done enough testing to see if I would be quicker with the softer ones but for offline single player I don't really care as it's all about fun for me.

    Stiffer suspension and ARB settings definitely feel better on wheel. Just more responsive and tighter with a better feel for what the tyres are doing.

    Wheel turns too slowly - Thrustmaster T300

    Set it to 360 degrees in game and on the actual t300 using that button thing with the flashing led.

    I don't know. Probably time trial. But why does it matter? The point is that the cars in the game can lap very quickly indeed when driven properly. Besides TRL is not even close to the really fast guys. Im sure there are guys out there who can shave another second or more off that time without breaking a sweat.
  9. "They" wouldn't be grammatically correct. The game should know whether you're playing as male or female and use "he" or "she" accordingly.

    Rear lights not working on Ps4 [ZX]

    Also the DRS LED does not light up when the DRS is available or activated on the steering wheel of that team that always finishes last, aka Williams. Not a huge game breaking bug, I know, but since there is a theme of lights not working properly in this game it might as well be fixed. Plus it's an easy fix, so why not.

    F1 2019 A disaster.

    I think he's referring to the point that driving an f1 car in a sim is nowhere near as great as driving an f1 car in real life. I think it was Hamilton who said that the the official sim at the Mercedes factory was not much better than a PlayStation game, Raikonnen was not particularly impressed by AC and Nicki Thiim said that Pcars 2 was arcade.

    TRL limitless on YouTube jus did a low 1:04 in Austria with no assists. Leclerk's pole was a low 1:03 in real life, so people are already getting very close and the game has only been out for a few days.

    I'm talking about the control setup within the actual game. Alternatively you can increase brake pressure in the actual car setup menu. You can basically make the brakes so strong that you'll lock up with hardly any effort. Also ive been sim racing since the late 90s so I'm far from inexperienced, and ive played them all except i racing, so I know what I'm talking about. My guess is that the problem for you is not a lack of downforce, but a lack of rearward ballast. You simply can't chuck the car in and have it rotate into the corner like you could in earlier f1 games. Consequently you need to drive with sensitivity and finesse now, especially on braking and corner entry. If you don't believe me, have a look at youtubers and see how sharp their turn-ins are and how fast they're lapping. There really should not be a problem unless you have some kind of weird bug.

    Yes, with wheel and no assists. I have increased the brake saturation a bit though, which makes the braking stronger, but obviously easier to lock up.

    That's strange because I found the opposite. And I can actually brake a little later than in f1 2018. The handling model is very different to f1 2018 though and it does feel very different at first and you have to change the way drive accordingly. Basically the way you drove in f1 2018 won't work anymore, especially if you were one of those people who used max ballast at the rear to rotate the car into the corners. That was very unrealistic and I'm glad its gone. As a result you now have to rotate the car properly ie. with weight transfer and trail braking.
