  1. Codies are going full ostrich with this one, head in the sand. "If we stay like this maybe they'll stop complaining". Seriously, I don't like playing this card because it sounds preachy, but I work in game development. I know fatigued devs trying to explain themselves out of having to fix something when I see it. In bug reporting or task management softwares you will have resolutions to issues like "Fixed", "Resolved", "Cannot reproduce" etc. There are two variants there usually called something like "By design" and "Won't fix". The latter one is for smaller (in the devs' own eyes at least) issues they don't want to bother with because it takes time away from other issues. However, they can't actually say that to the community for obvious reasons, so they tell poor Barry to inform us it's "By design" instead of "Won't fix" which is just even more infuriating and kind of insults the intelligence of the players. Those are my two cents on this issue. I do outlaps in qualy and don't want to drain my battery before starting my hotlap. Why can't I use the shortcut for going up and down ERS modes when that is what the shortcut was designed for in the first place? "Sorry mate, won't fix this one."
  2. Weird, I haven't seen my own car being overfueled. I do run the race strategy programme in practice so maybe that's what is causing the issues.
  3. I'm running 100%. The problem isn't the player car; that is being calculated correctly. It is the AI cars that are incorrectly calculated to be over fueled.
  4. Unfortunately not since fuel load is restricted in F2, so you can't overfuel your car to compensate for this.
  5. There's a setting where you pick between manual and manual with clutch or something like that. Make sure to set this to only manual and your problem should go away.
  6. Good catch, I've also been destroying the AI in races after qualifying somewhere around 5th-8th. I just thought it was down to getting the hang of the circuit but they do seem awfully slow through many corners, such as turn 3 at Barcelona for example.
  7. It's not your Xbox, it's the game.

    Low Resolution Textures

    Yeah this has been an issue for the last few years. Seems like an engine issue where it doesn't handle texture streaming and/or graphics memory very well.
  9. "By design" meaning "too small an issue to bother with" here. If it is actually by design, i.e. someone sat down and went "this should work like this instead of the other way" it has to be the dumbest design I've seen in a while.
  10. What the title says, the game crashes to desktop every time I beat my rival in time trial. To top it off, the EGO dumper crashes too so I have to close both the game and that through the task manager.
  11. 1. A detailed description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. The audio for traction control on the 2000 Ferrari, 2003 Williams, 2004 Ferrari, 2006 Renault and 2007 Ferrari doesn't play properly, instead there is just binary static. The issue was present on previous F1 titles, although it was fixed on F1 2018 (potentially the audio was just removed rather than fixed, not sure), then it was back again on F1 2019 and now F1 2020. I.e. this now includes the brand new Schumacher Edition Ferrari from 2000. This is NOT related to the traction control assist but is an audio bug with the above mentioned cars specifically. See this thread from last year for more information and reference videos: 2. What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) 1.03 3. Game-mode? Any mode with the above named classic cars. 4. What are your replication numbers? Minimum test attempts are 4. Please also add EXACT replication steps for us to try too. 100% 1. Boot game 2. Enter time trial 3. Select classic cars 4. Select one of the cars mentioned above, e.g. 2004 Ferrari 5. Drive until you reach a slow corner and accelerate through the lower gears so that traction control kicks in. 5. What troubleshooting have you attempted? Please always try to attempt to fix the issue Not much to do as a user here, the audio is broken. 6. What peripherals are you are using (gamepad, wheel make & model etc) Issue has been present with gamepad, G29 wheel, Fanatec CSW wheels etc, peripherals don't contribute to the issue. 7. Any screenshots or video of the issue? If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears. Again referencing the thread from F1 2019 above. However, this is a video from the thread of the 2003 Williams on F1 2019, but the exact same issue appears on F1 2020. Listen for the static that abruptly goes on and off between ca 0:18-0:20 of the video as the driver comes out of the first chicane in 2nd gear.

    Game crash and EGO bug report in time trial

    I had it in DX11 mode.

    Codemasters a bit disconnected.

    I suspect the OP doesn't work in marketing.

    F1 2020 Motor Sound

    Agreed on the deceleration. One of the few nice things that stood out to me when the V6 era started was the rumbling growl as the cars were coming down through the gears, especially from the Renaults, and Codies just haven't been able to capture that, ever. On the game the car just sounds quite pedestrian under deceleration. There's also zero variety in engine noises. It just has the samey, flat sound with little character which is fine in the beginning but after a hundred hours it's painfully obvious that the engine just loops the exact same sound.

    F1 2019 horrible pricing depending on Platform

    What UP100 said. Also console games are more expensive than on PC across the entire industry.

    Classic auto bug with sound !

    I run with traction control off in the settings so it only comes from these particular cars. I'm fairly sure traction control enabled through the settings on a car that normally lacks TC doesn't produce any sound effect. But it's been a while since I used traction control as an assist from the settings. F1 2018 traction control sounded more like in the real-life video I linked (after it was fixed). It's as though the game is trying to play that sound effect but something goes wrong so the sound is just garbled instead. It might be a compat issue but every single video I've found has that same issue so I think the problem occurs across any machine including consoles. This is a video from what I believe is patched F1 2018: It's hard to pick up any additional noise at all in this clip, but at least it doesn't have the binary white noise. It's possible the fix was to simply remove the sound effect altogether because it didn't play nice with the rest of the audio or something. This is pre-patch on F1 2018: In this video you can clearly hear the same white noise as in the clip with the Williams on F1 2019. You also hear the same sound every time he shifts up like I mentioned (although that particular issue is not present on F1 2019, it was only in 2018).

    Classic auto bug with sound !

    Hi @BarryBL and thanks for getting back! Correct, as I pointed out this is related to traction control. However, there's clearly an audio glitch happening here. Traction control doesn't sound like white noise, but on F1 2019 it is this binary noise that just switches on and off where the *actual* traction control sound is supposed to be played. Again, this bug was present, acknowledged by Codies and fixed in F1 2018. It's the same issue as far as I can tell (on F1 2018 there was also a similar or even identical audio glitch on upshift that was also fixed). Here is a real-life video with traction control sound: And here is the 2003 Williams FW25 in F1 2019: That is 100% a bug and not by design.

    Classic auto bug with sound !

    I reported this bug months ago but no one even answered despite this actually being a returning bug that was fixed in F1 2018 and then back again in F1 2019. The issue has to do with the sound glitching out whenever traction control kicks in when shifting up through the lower gears. This is why the issue only surfaces with the specific cars mentioned by Alex (i.e. they all have traction control). Any youtube video with gameplay showing the 2003 Williams, 2004 Ferrari, 2006 Renault or 2007 Ferrari will demonstrate the issue which is a kind of grating static white noise on throttle coming out of slower corners. I reiterate, there was a fix in 2018 so it's reasonable to expect the issue would be relatively easy to fix on 2019.
