    Are all assists off in Esports?

    I would imagine they are on the basis that assists off tend to be faster and i doubt top drivers would run an assist that costs them time especially given most if not all will use T-Cam to give them an advantage visually too rather than opt for a more realistic cockpit view. Even if it's not mandatory, i doubt any of them run with assists.

    F1 2020 Codemasters Anti Cheat Measures

    With respect Mike, unless Codemasters are able to devise a way of preventing the game software being manipulated there is nothing you can do or expect codemasters to be able to do to resolve the situation. Asking codemasters to delete times serves little purpose.

    The effect of a full tank on car setup

    Assuming its correctly factored into the game physics, ride height would be a factor too. Under heavy fuel the car would be more likely to be bottoming out if its too low. Likewise it can become a bit tail happy once the fuel has burnt off as the rear of the car would be lighter, and technically speaking, sitting higher than it did at the start altering the downforce. However, whether that's correctly built into the physics here i'm not sure as i havent tested enough on 100% races. Other people will be able to give you a better response regarding ride height i imagine.

    Race start help

    Enter Grand prix mode Start race After start > pause > restart session. Start race > Pause > restart session. Best way to practice.

    Is it worth 50 pound at minute

    Understandable i guess. It does seem you particularly appear to be suffering more than the average person is..

    The effect of a full tank on car setup

    I don't personally follow TT set ups and i'm certainly not a fan of the high rear ARB. Perhaps as a short term measure whilst your learning set ups, consider sticking to ARB 5/6 like you suggest as you seem happy with that and perhaps increase the front wing by 1 at the start of the race to help with turn in and then in the MFD during the early part of the race remove it back down one click so it isn't too loose so it gets changed at your fuel stop as your car would have burnt off some fuel by then and will be lighter and will turn in easier.

    F2 Starts broken?

    See Davids handling thread pinned at the top. There is a section about F2 starts.

    Fanatec CSL Elite with Playseat and Monitor Stand

    @PJTierney Certainly no messing about there if that was your first wheel and rig combo !

    The STATE of this game....

    If your not surprised, why did you buy it then? Just wondering. All the F1 games have a bedding in period. Just wondering why you expected this year to be different?

    The STATE of this game....

    with respect, rather than throw your toys out the pram demanding you want everything perfect right away, why don't you either go and continue on another motorsport game that has had time to bed in and iron out some bugs for stable competitive racing and then come back when it is at a standard you would like? Or, be helpful and report bugs you find on this version to help assist? Whining but doing nothing helps no one.

    The STATE of this game....

    I've played various motorsport games over 30 years. Balancing what i would call realism and the ability to just pick up and play rather than get to bogged down in set ups etc i would say F1 2020 is the most enjoyable game i've played including iracing.

    no worries. In hindsight i wish i had got a new simrig too at the time. But hindsight is a wonderful thing !

    Bugs

    I'm not complaining? You are ?

    Bugs

    I don't mean to sound rude but if you can't be bothered to check the other threads commenting on the same issues and thus create yet another duplicate rather than add your concerns to the appropriate existing thread or even the proper technical forum, why would you expect codemasters to go to the effort to read your views? I don't get why people feel the need to open a new thread complaining about the same thing. Do people think it carries more weight their own view?

    The STATE of this game....

    possibly. I find it quite interesting myself the comparison. I fall into the 10+ year member category now on iracing and despite iracing being labelled as one of the better sims and these F1 games labelled as "simcade" i find the development of the handling on this game ( especially this year ) to make me find this my go to racing game now. Both have developed over the years but the value for money in the use i get out of the codemasters games can't really be beaten. My only slight gripe with the F1 game is there isn't an option to force cockpit only views really so that you could create a league and know for sure that like iracing everyone is racing in the same view and thus on an even playing field. But either way, its hardly a deal breaker.

    The STATE of this game....

    Sadly there are so many i literally have no way of knowing which of the many problems your referring to ! Although watching people doing doughnuts on a quali warm up lap was particularly special...

    The STATE of this game....

    My experience of the codemasters games is there will be initial bugs and as patches come out the issues become less and less. The game is 1) playable 2) value for money given the bugs are improved over time. My experience of iracing, aside from it costing approx 15 quid for a car and 15 quid for 1 track was that for the amount you spend they cannot be relied upon to produce a product that doesn't fail the amount it does. Every special event they do is riddled with problems. This year you had a situation where half the best teams were unable to join. This of course is ignoring the fact that car collisions result in your car more likely to land on the moon than react like a normal car.... Oh, and don't even get me started on the iracing physics in the eNASCAR pro event where they ran around with their front noses higher than the rear of the car having just announced a new major series sponsor. That, was embarrassing.... 😂 My point, nothing is perfect.

    The STATE of this game....

    Er my background is predominantly iracing and it's somewhat hard to take your initial post as seriously when you complain about wasting 70 euro's on the F1 game and then now say you are returning to iracing where with the greatest of respect to them, they have a number of issues themselves. For what it's worth, i hear a lot people complaining about bugs, but i certainly have not encountered many of them. Certainly not to the point of making the game unplayable as some people who like to overreact are claiming.

    Pressure should be on to add new tracks

    Let's be realistic. Anyone arguing that the new tracks need to be included for realism are equally unwittingly asking for all tracks not within the new official calendar to be removed. After all, they want realism based on the 2020 season but i'm not sure people would want a load of tracks removed.

    Fanatec CSL Elite with Playseat and Monitor Stand

    @MisterCorso I bought a CSL Elite some time ago using a playstation seat similar to yours with the metal bar going through the middle. For the life of me i cannot remember the model though. Couple of things i had you may wish to consider and look into. 1) The CSL elite was a little heavier than the G29 and caused some flex in the steering column. 2) The brake pedal required additional pressure to brake properly compared to the G29 and that caused some flex in the pedal plate assuming you have them angles upwards. It was still useable at the time, just depends how much it would bother you.

    Pressure should be on to add new tracks

    I'm not sure about adding the new tracks but i would say if codemasters accidentally deleted Hanoi off the game at the next patch it wouldn't be the worst thing.......

    I want my money back

    What is it about people that makes them feel like they need to open a brand new thread about exactly the same thing people are talking about in other threads. Just add your comment to the other thread? I never have and never will understand people.

    Pay to test

    It's concerning for the product in question people can work out what wheelset is being referred to based on very little information 🤣
  25. SIMRACER123

    Pay to test

    Your view certainly isn't wrong. My point really is that generally speaking, the F1 games pretty much every edition have had bugs upon release. Whether someone chooses to accept the bugs to begin with or not is largely irrelevant to my point. Given this has been an issue every year, why buy a game on release that historically has issues to begin with every year then complain about it? How does the saying go about doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome.....
