    Which mode you playing?

    It's very popular on some. Personally it's a track i rarely do and i don't really know why. There's actually nothing wrong with the track at all.

    Missing tracks

    Ok i will bite. You can have the new tracks but all the tracks not in the calendar shall be removed from the game to keep it authentic. You will need to run a few of the tracks twice in your season of course. Realism.

    No. I said it makes zero difference. Well, technically, you may get bumped up a couple of positions.

    No but you would expect if a esports motorsport series wants to look credible in the long term it will consider going down the route of cockpit only. After all, the best of the best will have no problem adjusting and they would all be racing the same view. Seeing a F1 esports event with people driving sat on top of the engine looks very arcade like and im not convinced shows the capabilities of the drivers in the best light.

    Good. So you acknowledge it's quicker then and essentially a user view assist.... Got there in the end. That was hard work.

    Its not overly complicated. Your too focused on time. Sure you can take away all the times that are not practical to do, but all it takes is people to specifically target the top of the leaderboard and make it seem legit and your in no different position. The exception is they are there, you just dont know it. If driver X posted a lap time 5 seconds quicker and had it deleted, if they are using a hack they are more than capable of creating a situation where they return to the top in a more "legit time" approach. I'm not saying that codemasters shouldn't delete the times. I think they should as it makes their game look a little silly but at this stage to the user, without a guaranteed way of not being able to cheat, deleting a couple of results out of many is pointless. My point is that it doesn't solve anything and your all still in the wrong positions irrespective of whether a couple of times at the top were deleted. Its naive to think your in much of a better position just because a couple of unreachable times have been deleted.

    So it hasnt occured to you then that T-Cam is used because your sat higher up and therefore see the corner entry and exit earlier that say someone in cockpit view because as you rightfully point out, they can see sod all in cockpit mode....?

    Thing is Mike, without there being a sure fire way of knowing 100 percent the cheating problem is resolved, hypothetically nobody even knows if your times are legit. Thats the problem. Remove some of the times all you like, but all others remain questionable... And therefore..pointless.

    Why do you think the "best" use TCam? Do think it's an extreme coincidence that nobody elects to race in cockpit view. Food for thought.

    So many contradictions i wouldn't even know where to start...

    I think you will find thats what codemasters are working to resolve. Out of interest, so if the ridiculous times are removed, do you honestly believe your in the correct position now on the leaderboard?

    F1 2020 Codemasters Anti Cheat Measures

    Yes I've noticed you seem rather passionate about weekly events. Which does raise the question why especially when you can't be so sure if your ever in the correct position come the end given you never know who is doing what at the moment. Still, if your able to come up with a full proof solution to provide 100% accurate leaderboards, I'm sure codemasters are all ears.

    Forgive me as im not overly familiar with xbox but if it says its xbox one ready it should be fine. I'm not sure if you have got to the stage of using the wheel yet but it may just be a case when its plugged into the xbox of pressing the button on the base to switch it across ( it may do it itself automatically, im not sure ) For example i use mine for Ps4 and iracing on the PC. When i use it on the PC i just have to press the button so the PC recognises it.

    I do see what your saying but really at this stage the only reason to clear the leaderboard is for codemasters reputation purposes as frankly the times make it look a little silly. However from the gamers point of view, the times being removed really make no difference if the ability to cheat still exists as the leaderboard will remain full of times that are not legit.

    Your entitled to say you disagree. But lets say 20 people came on here stating they were able to use cheat software to manipulate their time to be in the top 20 and only be marginally ahead of legit times. Would you be ok with this because the dodgy laps several seconds faster were gone? It just seems odd for anyone to say they are ok with people cheating just so long as they can't tell from the times cheating has occurred. Codemasters can clear the times, but lets be realistic, people wanting to cheat will find a way to squeeze their name in at the top eventually so whats the point. It wont just be obvious times that arent legit.

    The Ps4 one works by pressing the button on the base unit to PC mode. Incidentally you need that mode to download the latest update for the wheel if it requires it. I see the website says xbox one ready so in theory it should be the same process just select the right button.

    You simply have to wait for codemasters to create a way that prevents "all" cheating. Theres absolutely zero point in stopping "some" cheating. That achieves nothing. Removing "some" times isn't preventing cheating. It's merely a sticking plaster to satisfy the people who aren't quite clever enough to realize that people cheating will still be up the top and will find other ways to appear there. But hey, if it calms some people down in the interim so be it

    How do you know? You don't know with any certainty thats the point. And if even one person is able to cheat with a cleverly subtle time then there really is little point in removing times as the leaderboard will still be false. The only difference being is it makes some people feel better if some times are removed when in fact hidden cheating is probably worse as it leaves you thinking your in the correct position when your not.

    F1 2020 Codemasters Anti Cheat Measures

    Haha no it doesn't. All it does is make you think its solved. Are you really that naive to think that all other times are legit? You talk about removing times that are far quicker than what you believe is capable but the fact of the matter is if anyone is that desperate to cheat they will easily do so by putting in deliberate times that look legit. It's easy enough to manipulate your lap time if your competent enough if your that way inclined. I guess what I'm trying to highlight to you is you may have 2 peoples ridiculous times being deleted but what about the other few hundred that are ahead of you that have been a bit more clever about it.

    You can't really argue T-Cam is a not a user advantage over Cockpit cam. You either want the closest realistic racing experience or you dont. Turning all the car assists off for a realistic experience but remaining in T-Cam seems counter productive. May as well just leave all assists on.

    Fantasy Calendar

    To be honest i would like to see codemasters produce a fantasy track of their own. Produce say 3 different track layouts and let the community decide which one they would think looks more appealing. Given a lot of real F1 tracks feel a bit samey due to FIA regs it would be interesting to see what Codemasters could come up with.

    David Greco's Handling, Driving and Setup Q&A

    @David Greco CM I remember reading from posters last year that the online multiplayer car was essentially the Mercedes. Are you able to confirm if that's the case this year or whether the multiplayer car is a car in its own right? ( i.e handles slightly differently ) It was probably me imagining it but last year set ups made outside of online multiplayer didn't always translate across with the same feel so i just wondered if this was down to the car being slightly different or the difference being different track states, or simply a bit of both? Yours sincerely Nerdy set up guy. 😀
  24. No issues here. Just the opposite. I find my flashback occurs very purposely around the same time i run out of talent 😀

    The effect of a full tank on car setup

    Thats handy to know. Thanks. Coming from an iracing background i tend to find the set up aspect a bit more enjoyable than most so the more of it that reacts as it should the better. I appreciate the game has it's limitations but from what i have seen on this years version there is a nice balance between fun and setting the car up and not getting too bogged down finding the correct set up. It's just been interesting seeing how even one click of a change to something can produce so much time. Speaking of bumpy tracks, the one thing missing from this game really is someway of identifying from data that the car is too low. I mean, as nice as it is establishing that by digging yourself out the nearest kitty litter or tyre barrier, it would be handy to know without needing to write the car off first 😀
