    no mirror in patch?

    Hi all I thought I'd read that the virtual mirror was going to be in the patch?  Is it still coming for pc? thanks Ric
  2. Hi all enjoying the game, career's fun, racenet challenges are great and online racing should be too... but it's being ruined (for me at least) by constant crashing/ramming/being taken out.  I assume most people aren't deliberately driving me into the wall (though there's presumably some that are) so it must be mainly accidental.  Not talking about getting hit from behind, which is common - I can see that could be down to not knowing the track, missing a braking point etc, irritating but pretty understandable. What really grinds my gears is being wiped out at corners through no fault of my own and I put it down to a lack of all-round visibility - Cockpit cam's my view of choice but it's like trying to drive looking through a letter box - no peripheral vision and no mirror (yet).  I only have one monitor and am not able to go multi or superwide.  Unless you're spamming the look-behind and side view buttons you've very little idea where anyone else is (and to be honest I have enough trouble getting round corners already without trying to see where you are!)  I try and take my line and bam - accident.  Either I drive into them or they drive into me but neither of us sees the other til it's too late and we're in the wall. I don't find the proximity arrows much use as they only seem to work at very close range and mainly toward the back of the car.  Can they be enhanced to work further round the car at the sides?  maybe a little onscreen topdown view would help, like you get in FPSs? I know the simplest solution is for me to change views to chase cam as you get more all-round visibility but that's not driving IMHO Anyone else similarly frustrated??? thanks   Ric

    Corrupt save on pc

    I thought corruptions on pc had been fixed by the patch but sounds like they're still happening?  What's the advice if you get a corruption post-patch?

    Corner cutting penalties

    Hi all been watching lots of videos and a common complaint is about the corner cutting penalty.  Anyone know whether this is confirmed for final release, and if so is it going to be optional online? thanks Ric

    QUALITY CONTROL

    damned if you do...!
  9. Loggy said: Terdhat said: I submit that the above idea of a small window on screen that shows a top down view would become the norm in racing games going forward. That would trump mirrors any day for positional awareness on a single screen. One can hope. It could be simple vector lines for all I care to keep the graphics load down.  With equal size blocks representing the vehicles changing colour from green slower through to red being faster, orange being neutral. We can hope. Or maybe the blocks could have the colour of the driver's impact rating so you'd know who to avoid?    
  10. don't want this to get silly, each to his own.  Having said that I would have thought that chase cam would give you more awareness of cars to the sides and behind than cockpit, so driving against people in chase cam is presumably better, but I don't want to drive like that. 
  11. can't very well give up a position if you don't know they're there, which is really the crux of the issue for me.  And in the instances where I do know they're there, why should I give way and let them through just in case they're driving like a moron?! And by the way I'm not trying to suggest that I'm super-skilled and never hit anyone, I'm sure I'm as bad as the next man but it's never deliberate
  12. trouble is, in my experience of this game not many people behave like that.  Mostly the attitude is "the line is mine, out of my way..."  Combine that with the restricted view you get from dashboard cam and the result is frequent carnage.  Maybe a sim like assetto corsa has a more sensible userbase who drive better?!
  13. yes I appreciate that, that's why I'm asking the question.  I don't want to take anyone out and I hope most people feel similarly, but I don't want to drive in chase cam cos to me that's not driving

    Race won't end - AI don't start the race

    babaluk said: Ive hosted a few rooms where some of the ai drivers fail to start the race.  They just become transparent.  The rest of the field finishes the race and we continue on to the next screen.  That's it.  The race never ends.  I have to quit out of the event. Anyone else seen this? Fix? yes I've seen that too
