    [SOLVED] Updating Race Driver Grid to 1.3

    I think moddb can be considered a trusted source: https://www.moddb.com/games/grid/downloads/patch-1-3-5 file is codemasters signed…
  2. This thread is not related to any comparison with grid2019. I just want to write some ideas. the goal is entertainmet, gameplay, racing, competition. Call me old fashioned guy, i think this kind of fun can exist only into a full features and well designed multiplayer game like the one we had into grid2008. So my idea is: A completely new game called GRID online, a free to play with some bonuses at payment. So, lets talk about details: GRID Online, Fully features online only game, no single player. Now, full feature mean that online must be designed by someone who know what i mean. So: - no bullsht, no AI cars, no flashbacks, no random quick match. - Just a fully customizable lobby system. - A main room with everything listed, the eye need to know instantly how many people are playing. Then good marks simbols to know what lobby choose. - no regional matching for lobby, just you can find everyone default online, no trick to set UK into steam game settings or things like that - THE STATS player system, is important, you need to track the stats, how many races, how many vicories, how many cars totaled, etc, etc. - KICK VOTE system. - the built in text chat - the spectator mode from lobby and on racing. - a free to play base packet of circuits, tracks and cars. Additional content at payment. - Full damage system (we don't need ferrari, let lost them). - Two different modes, tuned cars and stock cars. So two different branch of leaderboards. Not a separate lobby list, just an option inside the lobby. - Moderated Leaderboards, no fake time lap like 00:00:01 etc - Leaderboards showed into a new page on racenet from browser. - Stock cars can allow a minimal setup, tuned cars a full setup customization. (all parameters, gear ratio, suspensions, tyre pressure, camber, etc) - You can build your garage, keep your tuned cars, and use them into tuned competitions. - A meter for tuned cars, so example 4 parameters and a point 1 to 10 for each paramenter (so you can see other players car is more tuned than yours). - The possibility to save different setups to use into specific track, (you can load car setup directly inside lobby). - so on.. i'll add more Now this is not a dream list or something impossible to develop (most of the things i listed are already into grid1), i just want to share this ideas with community, and improve with other people ideas. Let make this happen !
  3. Imagine Grid2008 maxed without Yellow filter ! Its everything more balanced. Grid2019 is not bad, compared look too much saturated.
  4. - no regional setup lobby matching (the old trick to configure uk as regional into game setup should be not needed anymore) - main lobby list public, with all the custum lobbys listed, who join online the first thing is to check how many people are playing. - NO AI into multiplayer, easy ! - and please we are asking for years built in text chat (everywhere, lobby and racing). - The possibility to spectate the race from inside lobby and inside race (retire, car totaled etc). Make a mega patch with this inside, enjoy multiplayer and grid2019 success. More wait more people will refund this game, at now is totally unplayable online. Big fiasco.

    Race Driver: Grid - Remastered Poll

    Classic circuits are Always the same, and right, racing on tracks is done over and over to improve skills. I can agree to have more tracks and more new urban tracks btw. to Have something completely new is a nosense unless you wish for Space Driver: Grid, where you fly around the universe trying to catch first the flag on the planet target.

    Race Driver: Grid - Remastered Poll

    barely grid2019 keep up with graphics on GAS, no sense if they ''remaster'' it with the same graphics or worse… would be the first ''remastered down'' of history videogames lol. The poll is about grid1 cause was the most successful game of the series, and cause online was a real full feature multiplayer, where you can stay hours without the need killing time anywhere. Every side of online was covered, no need to list all features… you know 🙂

    This is an old idea. Imagine the classic grid1 2008 remastered with a photorealistic graphic engine, with new cars models, more detailed tracks etc. (maybe new car sounds). Everything else exactly the same as grid1. So menu structure, car Handling, camera bouncing, online system etc. Then additional content with DLC: new tracks dlc and new cars dlc. The idea is to have back this classic, like the halo1 anniversary… why not grid1 ? And i think about some new features: - Interactive leaderboards (feature like cloud ghost car, replays etc) - Total customizable livery system with parental control. - No car power tuning, instead a total customizable setup for car Handling (suspensions, gear ratio, camber, etc all parameters of car). With setup upload online (and download also from specific player racenet account). - Nicknames as steam and avatar preview visible on track. - Nicknames gold color for long service player, example who have codemasters account 5year old or more. - No a single old feature cut, so everything we had is still there (text chat, spectator mode from lobby etc). - New penalty system for track cutters. - An infraction system. - Watermark for unfair racers, an automatic watermark when player get a specific number of infraction.. the watermark go away with 2weeks of inactivity online or no infractions. - Classic kickvote for lobby, with the number of times a player got kicket into stats. - leaderboards and track records replays avaible with browser. - Interactive stats panel for each player, with some social media account integration (YouTube, Facebook, twitter etc). - a gift system, gift for milestone achievements, example rare livery for racers with 10000victories etc.. etc. What i want here with this thread ? The first a community feedback, so everyone click like and comment with NEW ideas. The second i want that someone in charge at codies read and maybe think about it for real.

    GRID 2019 - If you had one wish...

    this thread hurts me... thats my wish: I wish the TEAM who made the Race Driver: GRID come back together and make the REAL sequel.

    Bring back DEMO DERBY!

    funny part is that whoever did this thinks it was a smart move…

    Watered down damage.

    really ? this way next step can be a power limiter to 90HP to every car so everyone can drive the perfect trajectory line… 2019 realism should be only improved… full damage and custom lobby where there are enough settings to choose your game...
  13. Over the years i seen multiplayer of the grid series become unplayable. I think this is intentional. There is a big problem when you nail a multiplayer game (grid1), this make very hard to moove customers to new upcoming episodes. So they put inside new games an uncomfortable and unplayable multiplaer (just to say there is one). So after few week online is already deserted. I'll Always remember what happen to the community of GRID1 racers, game was alive and full of people, a game with full features multiplayer (ranked and not ranked online, custom lobby, text chat, spectator mode from lobby, national flags, kick vote, no regional settings to force for lobby discovery, and many other). That game multiplayer was CLOSED in 2011 due to 3d party owner of online servers expire contract, without a warn from CM, a word on forums or blogs, and without any apology after. Just closed and people f0c5ed. Funny… very funny. My opinion is, STOP preorder games !! STOP pay for beta and uncomplete games. And most important, don't buy game if there is something missing that previous episode already had, this set standards drop to the ground.

    Multiplayer modes

    you are young i bet… very few things will be addressed with a patch. Asking to Add missing features will require lot of time… and i bet they will try to sell it back as ''new features pack'' so you can finally build your custum lobby… years ago we used to call games with partial features and content DEMO version. Now marketing wasted our minds so we can buy a game with the half of tracks and features of a 5yo previous(gas) episode for twice of the money… Take a look into grid1... custom lobbys, ranked and not ranked, full options, kick vote, text chat, spectator mode from lobby, etc...

    ahah i remember, indeed was a lot of fun cut the track on spa ! Well, the whole idea is great… lets see if someone in charge take it seriously. Would be a jackpot party for codies…

    A Hope for GRID series

    Agree with you SRBIJAdeadyet ! Check the thread grid 1 remastered, i say exact the same, lets this idea grow big inside community people.
  17. i would love too if they will make a mega patch with everything inside…
  18. The old thread was not clogged… just the most viewed and followed… and i suppose that if was named ''why grid2019 looks so stunning'', instead to close it, they would have already pinned on the top page and i don't think any patch will going to fix graphics, trees etc... they will fix hopefully loading errors and something directly related to controls and adjustments (and major bugs)…

    Exactly as you said !! a plain and simple engine upgrade... maybe finally thay can nail it !! p.s. glad to see old racers, grid1 multiplayer online was absolutely the best fun !

    [GRID 2019] Multiplayer Thread

    i doubt first patch will fix features… look a tech issues sections… is enough if they will fix just a part of many erros…
  24. FlashStealth


    my comfortably numb thought… grid1 remastered would be a killer app racer, there is no competition… even now maxed the graphic look modern… (ye without Yellow tone). Specially multiplayer is the N1. No doubt about that.
