    Any improvement to the ai this year?

    The AI in this game are massively improved over last year. Still not perfect, but they are better at getting out of the way, block less during qualifying, and are less ... well, "Artificial" than before. As stated, they make mistakes, fight with you, but are generally good at giving the right amount of space. That being said, they still do stupid stuff. They still get back on the racing line a bit harshly, sometimes knocking you off the track. They sometimes get in the way, or get out of the way a bit late during qualifying. They don't always obey blue flags as perfectly as you might like. But so do humans. I'd say this is a great step in the right direction. Now just some fine tuning to increase their track awareness a tad more, and they'll be great. 🙂
  2. 1. A description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. I completed three practice sessions in the Weekly Event. I finished the first fine, but crashed out of the second and third. I was given credit for the miles driven, but not the practice sessions themselves. 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. How many times have you recreated your issue? If you can't recreate it regularly, we won't be able to either. Please attempt replication at least 3 times. Only able to try it once this week. I did the practice sessions, then did qualifying (3 times, cuz I sukt). When I checked my challenge progress, it showed that I had done the miles for practice, but not the sessions. 4. What troubleshooting efforts have you made? Try to fix it before posting a bug report. N/A 5. Any accessories you are using (gamepad, wheel etc) T300RS with F1 Wheel 6. Any screenshots or video of the issue? For posted video, set privacy to only f1beta@codemasters.com or use screenshots and send on the forums here. Remember, leaked videos, however their intention, can lead to people being removed and banned from the BETA.
  3. I was simply trying to make sure the other person didn't do something that might get them in trouble. If the person who has the game got it from a store early, then great. But if they are one of the people who got it from Codemasters, they are under an embargo. I just didn't want the other person to violate that. But it seems there isn't any issue, so all is well. Cheers.
  4. There are people who are given early access to the game, but they are under an embargo that prevents them from releasing (youtube or streaming) anything until after the 6th of July. That will also apply to anyone those people know. If you're not sure, best to not say anything. 🙂
  5. Remember that there is still an NDA in place, and no information is to be released about the F1 2020 game. Unless this is something that has been shown by an authorized Youtuber or content creator, I suggest keeping it entirely to yourself until after the embargo is lifted and the game is released.

    It comes down to licensing. F1 teams don't change their livery during a given season, so the game would logically only have one livery available per team for the current car. Remember this is the Official F1 Game, and all cars in the game have to be approved by FIA and the teams involved. None of them would be terribly impressed to see the game allowing their car to wear different liveries.

    games is twitchy

    As the 2013 game hasn't changed in any way, you may want to start by making sure all your video drivers, etc, are up-to-date.
  8. Definitely. Won the first race they entered. The black and gold is classic. And they're Canadian. What else do you need? 😛
  9. Let's keep things civil, ok? You're both entitled to your opinions and ideas. No need to get unpleasant. 🙂
  10. From the photo it's not really possible to tell, but it looks like the pedal arms will move to the right when pushed? If that's the case, then as soon as you press the pedal, the two gears will stop touching. The teeth on the pedal part will move down, away from the other one. I may be totally wrong. Not sure which direction the pedal arm will be moving. I have the exact same set. Let me know if you still need help and I'll try to get mine apart and take a photo for you.

    Another featured event?!

    100% agree. I come from a game that went full FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). Content comes and goes every 3 months. I had quests that were mostly complete disappear from my inventory because "the season changed." Worst gaming concept ever. If the game has a trophy that can be earned, it needs to be earnable. Or remove it from the game if the support is dropped, such as the Multiplayer stuff if Multiplayer isn't going to be available after X amount of time. People may scoff at "completionists" but let's face it: a lot of video game players want to achieve everything in the game, like completing every race in Gran Turismo 1, 2, and 3, in that order. We're a weird breed. But there are a lot of us and we buy video games.

    My Team online with a friend

    They could always get together and work out the designs as a team. 😉 This is similar to the request to be able to play Career with a friend online. Being able to have a friend as your team-mate has good points and not-so-good. As mentioned, you have to be able to agree on colours, etc. You also both need to be available for every round, so one person can't play unless the other is also playing. It's also a matter of, how to expand the single-player Career (or, in this case, My Team) into a multiplayer mode. However, that being said, I do love the idea of being able to go through Career or My Team as an actual team with a friend.
  13. Appreciate the kind words. 🙂 It's a little different now. That was back when I had my G25 hooked up. When I got my new wheel I rebuilt the base. Instead of one big piece of plywood, it's now two thinner pieces with cross pieces at one end for the chair "feet" to hook onto. Your own weight in the chair prevents the unit from moving forward. There are two different cross pieces 2 inches apart, so the chair can be moved back for my taller friends. The top is held tight by squishing down on the arms of the chair, which provides a "spring" that holds against the angled braces. It wouldn't actually work if the chair had hard arms. I suppose a piece of foam mounted to the wood would provide the spring it needs. Hmmm... maybe a patent isn't such a bad idea. The pedal base holds the other end secure. And it now has no gear shift. That went away when the G25 was replaced. I use the right side of the top wood as a mouse pad. Total weight is about 20 lbs. Can be hung on a wall for storage. It's mostly held in place by the chair sitting on one end, but the screws that hold it together stick out the bottom just a hair. Enough to jab the floor and prevent any wiggling. I'd probably have to rethink that part before getting the patent. I do have a mat that's supposed to go under my treadmill, but isn't. That would work perfectly. And save my floor. 🤣 Oh, and the piece of wood at the top is to hold my phone for Sim Dash.

    New Williams livery F1 2020

    That will be a collector's item in the future. There will never be another t-shirt made (officially) with Rokit on it.

    New Williams livery F1 2020

    What's shown in the game has to be approved by the teams and F1. If they changed it in real life (which they did) then Codemasters would have to as well. And I'm very glad they did, because this new livery is gorgeous! I also prefer it without Rockit all over it. Looks amazing. And since I usually like to start with Williams and work up to Mercedes, this year I'll be doing that in serious style!
  16. Love your rig. I built one out of an old entertainment centre, with a leather-upholstered seat from a 1998 Suburban. Seat belt and arm rest included, but the rails were missing so it wasn't adjustable. Unfortunately, it took up too much space in the living room, so I converted it to this. Folds down for storage and easy entry, and clamps down on the arms of my big comfy chair. 🙂 To @joefane, if you take what you know about inputs on the controller and use that exact logic on the wheel and pedals, you'll do fine. If you're currently battling near 100 AI, you obviously know how to race. Doing that on a wheel and pedals just takes practice to get used to the different motions. After a while, muscle memory will set in and you'll wonder how you went so long without switching. 😉

    Press the XBox button, then LB to get to the Friends and Other Users tab on the home screen. Select "Find Someone" and enter their gamertag to bring up their profile. From there you can choose Report or Block.

    Can you choose the tracks in short career mode?

    To clarify, does this mean we can pick any 10, 16 or 22 races, but they have to be in the same order as the original calendar? Or Can we race the same track more than once? And can we change the order around? Starting in Canada would be a wonderfully evil thing to do to anyone who doesn't live here, especially if the weather were consistent with the time of year. 😛

    Drool. Not necessarily in that order. Please say we can actually use the simulators. Please tell me they aren't just a cinematic. This looks really sweet!

    GHub Update broke my G29. I fixed it.

    When and if I ever get a Fanatec setup, I'll chuck you my G29 for cheap. Like, shipping cheap.
  24. Hey all. I logged in tonight to find that my wheel was wonky, from playing iRacing. It was set to 900 degrees instead of my usual 380. There is no calibration in GHub (that I've ever found anyway) so I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. It ended up on a newer version which no longer recognizes my G29 at all. ie: it doesn't even detect it. And with that version installed, Windows can't make it work either. I tried using the LGS software (not GHub) and it did work, but there was no FFB. So I used Geek again and removed LGS, rebooted, checked to be sure Windows could still see the wheel - it could. Then I reinstalled GHub and rebooted again. Again, verified that Windows was still seeing the wheel. When I ran the game again, I had FFB again. Not even sure this WAS a bug, so much as maybe my computer couldn't agree on what to run. The complete uninstall of LGS and a clean install of GHub seemed to solve it.

    GHub Update broke my G29. I fixed it.

    Sorry if it came across that way. I certainly don't think this is a Codemasters problem. The wheel was working fine in the morning, then not after the update. I just wanted to post my "solution" in case anyone else came looking. Unfortunately, it's working, but no FFB. I'll definitely be contacting Logitech about it and logging a bug report with them. Hopefully I can find a solution soon.
