    Steering Wheel
  1. I’ve seen YouTube videos of people going flat out here but I can’t as well. For me I think it’s my line as I’m learning to drive all tracks without the racing line and my lines are inconsistent to say the least. I’m using a wheel, don’t use any assists and have to do a small lift just after T2. It is challenging for sure and hopefully can learn it flat out at some point. I’m not great at setups so haven’t really tried anything other than one I got online. Just based on watching videos, it can be done and we’ll get there eventually I hope.
  2. I thought the same thing too. Everything I heard before release made is sound like it’s taken over for a real driver at some point in the real season with the same points etc. The whole goal I thought was to continue or start from race 1 as a real driver. I don’t really understand why it’s not the case. I wanted to play this mode until I heard it’s a fictional driver and when I read about the crazy driver transfers people have had in their real season careers. I hope it’s something that gets changed at some point. I do love career mode but really wanted this to be what we all thought it was.

    Driver changes

    I’m doing career mode and turned driver acclaim down to see if it would make a difference. I’m still in season 1, Mexico. No driver changes mid season. Very interested to see what happens after the season.
  4. Just to close the loop on this, 2 wheels in split screen aren’t supported and CM has confirmed this. What I just tested and confirmed it worked was using the 2nd wheel detected as a controller. The 2nd wheel I have is a t80 and it’s has a controller mode that let’s it work as a regular controller (do all wheels have this? I don’t know). You hold the PS button in while plugging in the USB cable. The light on the wheel will start flashing instead of being solid. This means it’s running in controller mode. You then press the PS button again and sign on with whatever account you want to use i
  5. Finally tried 2 wheels today and you know what? It worked. What we had to do was hold the PS button while plugging in the USB. Once you let go of the button, the light on the wheel will be flashing instead of solid. This means it’s detected as a controller. You then press the PS button again and sign on to whatever account will be the 2nd wheel. Start split screen mode and press option button on the T80 and now your in. I went in and mapped all the buttons and pedals. My son was using the t80 and he said it wasn’t bad at all. Steering isn’t as precise but my son had no problem using it. Obviou
  6. I noticed this last night too. Eventually I was able to play offline (only play offline) but it took a while. Would be nice if we didn’t have to wait for this for offline play.
  7. PS3 mode didn’t work for you? ****, that was my hope as it has worked with the t80 on need for speed. I do have a PS4 so now I’m thinking it’s not going to work. I’m still planning on trying it sometime this weekend and I will let you know how it goes. There was a trick to get the t80 to work with Need for speed. I think you had to have it in ps3 mode and also hold the ps button while plugging in the USB. Something like that. Sorry, I haven’t done it myself. My son would know but he’s not around. I will let you know how it goes.
  8. I suck at Monaco anyway but that kerb, if I don’t lift, I’m in barrier.
  9. I just had to comment that your T** McF*** analogy is hilarious. I am dying here. Thanks for the laugh…but I agree that it makes no sense why you can’t use Williamson.
  10. Thanks. I can’t believe I missed this as well. Cheers
  11. From what I’ve read, 2 wheels aren’t supported. I have 2 wheels and haven’t had a chance to try it yet. Hoping to this weekend and I will post once I know. I have a t150 and t80 that I will try. If it doesn’t work I think I can put the t80 in ps3 mode where it will act like a controller and just configure the buttons etc. That’s what my son has had to do playing some of the older need for speed games. Isn’t the greatest “feel” but better than nothing I guess. I would make my son use that wheel of course 😁
  12. I basically had the same experience. In normal career mode, 1st season in a Alfa Romeo at Bahrain. I expected to qualify around 16the but made it to Q3 and qualified 6th. During the race I made a bunch of mistakes but was still able to get back in the top ten and eventually finished 5th. So I up the AI 5 points and bam, I qualify in 20th, a good 3 seconds behind Gio. The race is the same and I am seeing blue flags until the cows come home. Finished 20th. For context, this is the first time I’m doing a career mode without the racing line. Spain was the first track I learned to drive withou
  13. I’ve only played on about 5 tracks so far and kind of figured which ones I have to avoid or lift on but the frustrating part to me is the AI seem to go flat out on the ones I have to lift on. So no matter what I do I lose a ton of time to the AI. I don’t mind the new kerbs but wish the AI had the same reaction to them as we do.
  14. I’ll tell you my personal experience for turning off assists. I didn’t start on a pad, I used my kids wheel (got hooked on racing games during the first lockdown) and started with all assists on. After a month I turned off TC. I find no TC was the easiest for me to get used to and took maybe a week to be confident but still spun out from time to time. Maybe after a month or 2 I stopped spinning for no reason. Like the previous post said, you have to baby the throttle but I found it became second nature and I don’t even think about it anymore and I only spin when I try and put the power down to
  15. Just curious if anyone knows if you can use 2 wheels in split screen mode on ps4. Thanks
