    [F1 2019] - [PC] - Save problem

    Hi @LubošKukliš, Long Shot, but just double check you connectivity settings. It should, in theory, be all fine if you are downloading fresh from Steam, but just in case. Please let me know how you get on

    PAD is too faster than Wheel ! WHY ?

    Hi @ShelbyUSA @advanceapple, I've moved this to the pad vs wheel thread as it more suited to there. To de-construct the video, I have the following points: TRL Limitless, by his own admission, performed his best lap on the pad which was 0.227 seconds down on his best wheel, which he also said he would be confident he can improve upon in the video All of his PB's in this video are with a wheel. (This would make sense as he is a wheel user) At around 12:05- 12:20, TRL also says in the video there is "absolutely no competition" in the lock-to-lock steering on the wheel compared to the pad. He also states that, although he feels he can find 95% of his available performance in a shorter time using the pad, finding his peak performance would come through practice on the wheel. The pad is going to be a more 'pick up and play' item because not everyone has a wheel available. I would like to see a video of a top pad player who doesn't have a wheel doing the same video. To sum up, a lot of what @ChasteWand says applies here. The fundamental times (so the actual lap times) are very similar from experienced pad users compared to experienced wheel users from our leaderboard data. Its just the 2 ways of playing the game, with two different controllers, have 2 different profiles and different strengths and weaknesses against each other. However, over the course of a lap, the times are similar. Its also about the player experience, something that we have tried to get as correct as possible. Immersion for a wheel will naturally be much more than a pad, and will give the player more understanding. However, not everyone can be in the position (space, time, money etc) to be able to invest in a wheel setup but might also be huge fans of the sport and the game. Therefore, we have attempted to give everyone, regardless of time, space and money, the opportunity to maximise their performance on the game, with enough time, effort and practice. And from our lap time delta, wheel and pad users can compete in the same arena and we aim for this to be the case.
  4. Hi everyone, I've just moved this to Tech Assistance and updated the title as its clearer for others to now find this post. Please also note that our next update will include deployment alterations to the Safety Car. This is due soon. This update has been designed to affect all modes within the game, including multiplayer. If people can provide feedback on this moving forward after the next patch, that would really help us know if we are on the right development path.

    RSB and LSB not working

    Hi everyone, The LSB and RSB buttons are not standardised functions within the generic Xbox support for wheels. This has resulted in more challenges than originally expected. This has been raised with the developers and it is something we are continuing to consider for future titles.

    Hi @771, As @steviejay69 said, we need some different information to diagnost a problem. Could you fill out the below when possible: A short description of the problem: Platform you’re on (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Steam): Game Version (Shown on the Start screen in the bottom left hand corner): Game Mode, including if it was Single Player or Multiplayer (Time Trial, Career, Grand Prix, Custom Game etc): If in Multiplayer, how many players and how many AI? What happened in the lead up to the problem? If you get an error message, the exact wording of the error message you're receiving: Any accessories you are using (wheel, pad, etc): If you have any videos or screenshots, please share them. If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears:
  7. Hi @kraM1t, Very strange. I run with a similar setup here and I've clocked 100 hours since November on the game, and not noticed a drop off in the triggers. I'll keep trying and see if it comes up. If you do get regular reports of this, please keep me poste.d
  8. Hi @ReimvomSchleim, On your 'custom' weather, what exactly did you run? Just so I can replicate the issue 👍
  9. Hi @zoltan1996, Yellow is a little too late in the wet. You want to be braking just before the yellow. Try using Time Trial in the wet as a benchmark and find a braking point with the racing line. If you are using yellow in the dry, you will have to brake earlier in the wet

    Williams Tyre Degregation

    Hi @1henryw, Maybe the Red Bull you had had lots of Tyre Wear upgrades compared to the Williams you are in now. Also, like @s00zster said, the Williams and Red Bull will be very different cars from the start of the game, even without upgrades. Try focusing on Tyre Wear and Weight Reduction upgrades as they might help the Williams feel a little lighter and be kinder to the tyres. Maybe even try a strategy with the harder tyres if tyre wear is so poor 👍 From what it sounds like, its just the difference in cars from top to bottom of the grid and doesn't sound like a bug to me.
  11. Hi @AcidBurn247, Do you have pictures or a video of this? Does this only happen to you in spectator mode?
  12. HI @ReimvomSchleim, I've spoke to the development team on this, and we've struggled to re-create the issue while under racing conditions. If you have any videos of this (I understand it can be difficult) and the exact steps you take should you achieve this again, that would be really appreciated. The photo mode however, is something we have seen and been able to re-produce. They have taken it into consideration for improvements in the future. I think it will be something added for future titles, and is not on the immediate path for 2019. Thanks again for your report 🙂
  13. Hi @JuanCarMR, Thanks for your feedback and information, appreciated. (I've changed the title to benefit others). From your video, its looks like it happens on the transition between quali and the race. If you just go straight into a race in a Unranked lobby, what Brake Bias to you get? Does this happen to you in every session, or when you are just the host? How often does this happen to you? I tried to re-create and my brake bias stayed the same on first attempt.
  14. From the videos sent @zoltan1996, it does seem like you are braking quite late even if it was dry. Try braking just before the yellow on corners in the wet. In terms of this being a bug, I have tested this in Intermediate and Wet conditions with a keyboard (and your settings) , and the game behaved as expected.

    [F1 2019] - [PC] - Save problem

    Hi @LubošKukliš, Silly question, do you have the needed hard drive space. Could you also check your Steam Cloud Synchronisation too? Also, does your Windows username have special characters in it at all? Just thinking of ways that the game save might not agree here.
