    F1 Tyre Poll

    do you think other tyre manufacturers should be brougth in to the sport for extra competition?

    Helmets

    why are the helmets so boring and bland and have no sponsorship on them? for the next game please make them a bit more modern in style, please allow us to use real life drivers helmets online and please consider a helmet designer in the game, it would be so popular. Make some of the helmets match the cars, with the same colours and sponsors. consider having different DLC helmet packs. And please don't have the helmets all the same make, use all the different shapes from the different manufacturers who make real life f1 helmets.
  3. I downloaded the 2 tracks from the store on xbox and have lost everything, my wins on multiplayer went back to 0 (zero), racenet ghosts gone, helmets won gone, stats gone everything is gone, my career progress gone, time trial ghosts gone, setups!!! grrrrrrrrrrrrrr gone I tried to mail hatta a few days ago but no reply, has this happened to anybody else?  any ideas what to do to get it all back?
  4. I for one still think 2010 was the best f1 game by codies yet, maybe the graphics were not as good as 2013 but the gameplay and online gameplay was much much better. for example of gameplay, when you pit you had to slow down for pit lane entry or you got a penalty and when arriving at the team box in pitlane you had to brake or you would run long into the box and lose time. all great additions to the gameplay experience. gradually over the last 3 years so much has been stripped out of the game and its losing its appeal especially online. I cant be the only person to think this about the online aspect of the game as in comparison to 2010 the online multiplayer is always so quiet, I think its the same few hundred people that play regularly, for an example of online gameplay, the lag in 2013 compared to 2010 is a step back whatever way you analyse it, I thinks its all to do with the step up to 16 online players from 10. the difference in the cars is extreme when set to equal, the difference between wheel users and pad users are extreme, as is assists and non assists, another thing i'd like to see rectified is the way your car slows down when someone pushes you off the circuit on a straight and the car automatically slows right down, its a massive advantage to dirty racers who ram and weave on the straights, and on some corners you cant cut 1 wheel over a line yet on other corners you can just totally cut the corner, seems to me like the game punishes you more for running wide after a corner exit rather than cutting the actual corner itself.
  5. lets cut straight to the point, it sucks that the game doesn't get released until the end of the season. will codemaster ever try to release the game closer to the start of the season? in the past the excuse of getting the cars all to real life pace and seeing who won what, who was fastest was the aim but seeing as its never been achieved then why not consider releasing the game closer to the season start. last year we knew seb had won the title before the game was even released. when i say its never been achieved look at 2012, 7 drivers won the first 7 races yet you try winning in the Williams on 2012 car settings and its impossible, unless you race low ranked ai. in a Williams  play against a friend of equal ability in the Ferrari in Barcelona where the Williams won that year and you will find that you cant win, the car just doesn't have the pace yet it won there in real life. which makes my point even more valid i would say. be very interested in what the dev team think of this or will it always be released so late into the season.
  6. aero, 3-1 brakes, 49-51, high pressure, standard disc balance, 3-11 suspension, height 11-1, stiff 1-11 gears maximum to right camber maximum to left toe maximum to right works on every track except Albert park, Nurburgring, Monaco :) and the times are fast, 1.46 at spa, 1.20 Monza, 1.33 sepang, 1.31 bahrain

    stats

    do codemasters have any stats of how many people actually play online, struggle to find a lobby on xbox, went on earlier and not a single lobby open or anybody on quick match.

    Fairplay Private Lobby (xbox)

    this is not a league as such, there is no website, no league tables I would just like to get a decent race online with equal players. Fairplay is the most important factor in doing this, open lobbies online are carnage. The next most important thing is that we are all on the same level, I notice when I see some leagues out there that the same person wins over and over again, its the same online in open lobbies so I would suggest if you'd like to take part in this and have some fair racing you would only have to commit to 2 things, fairplay and equal capabilities. for example if you can normally beat legend Ai on primes when they are on options by 2-3 seconds there is no point in racing with us, if you can compete for pole and wins against legend Ai then you would only need one other thing, the ability to fight fair and hard online, no bully boys.  There is no set time for races but all will be welcomed into the private lobby which would be opened everyday. Quite simply if you don't race fair or have a massive advantage over everyone else meaning you win every race we will just stop inviting you. Hope we can get some decent racing through this. Also due to the carnage that lag causes online we would prefer only European gamers, preferably that can speak English. We prefer a lobby full of green lights not red lights and this also makes for much better racing, unfortunately if you enter the lobby with a red light and cause lag we would remove you from the list sorry but its worth it to get fair, close and hard racing. maybe it could get made into a league in the future but to start with we just want a decent lobby full of good competitive fair gamers.
  9. was just playing online (xbox) and there was a guy cutting every corner at Monza and doing lap times of 1.14 he did not get disquallified or penalised in any way and lapped every single person playing in a 25% race. so my question is this, whats to stop hackers or people using pirated games online? there is no vip code for online use so it got me wondering just how safe is F1 online?

    setup question

    on every track I can fight for pole with legend ai online and normally get it by 0.3sec to 0.7sec depending on the track. then some random guy posts a time 2-3 secs a lap faster than even the legend ai. is this right? is there a setup where I can go 2-3 secs faster. I have tried lots of different setups, tried with assists and without assists and the best I can do is 1 sec faster than Legend ai on options, oh yes I forgot to mention the guy going 2-3 seconds faster was on primes. I know there is some major corner cutting going on online but didn't think it would gain that amount of time.

    The Codies League Championship

    that's not what im asking, im asking why this is aimed only at the minority of people who race in online leagues, loads of people who aint in leagues would like something like this. an open championship would be good, any1 can enter. lots of multiple official codies leagues ending up with 1 final championship.
  12. blackMamba99

    1 setup for most tracks just like every other F1 game

    i have tested this a lot, the setup doesn't change the tyre wear too much. what does is your driving style. don't wheelspin or slide the car and don't use kers when the car is laterally loaded wait until going in a straight line.

    Lets Talk about Vettel.

    typical, putting words in my mouth without knowing the facts, a common theme on here Really? I remember Alonso saying Hamilton had disobeyed the team and nothing more.  As for Monaco, I don't remember Hamilton actually taking Massa off and swearing, maybe it happened, maybe it didn't, show me the evidence of it and I'll happily accept that you are right about that. And please, if you want me to understand, can you separate your post up  bit and not just post one big paragraph? And hey, I was just replying in a way I saw fit to you calling me a child. Don't sling insults if you can't take a few back ;) I called you a troll because your comments about Hamilton in the Underrated/Overrated thread were clearly designed to stir up arguments from Hamilton fans. That, to me, is trolling. Why would you even say such things if you were impartial? And why would you say them, knowing that fans of Hamilton wouldn't be happy about them? As for your lightly veiled ending comment implying that I'm a Hamilton fanboy, I happen to be an Alonso fanboy and I'm proud to call myself such. Maybe my avatar picture should have given you a hint? And yes I judged you as a Hamilton hater, but to be fair your comments about him in 2 different threads seemed to be detrimental of him. And yes, I do like Hamilton, I like him being out front instead of Vettel. But I am first and foremost an Alonso fan. ok so if I honestly think Hamilton is overrated and vettel underrated im not allowed to say for fear of hurting someones emotions on a forum, get a grip man Sorry, wasn't it you who said something like 'I hope Hamilton crashes and burns in a fire'? Of course you can say you think Hamilton is overrated, but what kind reaction do you expect when you say something like that? what did I say that was soo bad? if people cant handle that then its not my fault is it. tbh I don't even think what I said was worthy of this whole argument, prawn got on 1 and decided to take things a bit too far

I on the other hand don't support any of the drivers involved so go figure who's got a better perspective

    by the way, vettel never said webber didn't deserve the win, he said he didn't deserve to use the multi map 2-1 team orders which is slightly different, which I agree with as it was only the 2nd or 3rd gp of the season. different if it was the last 3

    Lets Talk about Vettel.

    its well known after the qualifying for the Hungarian grand prix that Fernando called lewis various obscenities not fitting to put here. as did Hamilton towards Alonso. I said massa and Hamilton not Alonso and massa. slow down and read what your replying too.  Hamilton swears on the radio all the time, it never gets broadcasted. as a lot of drivers do. not just him, see im defending him I don't hate him. the end to your post just confirms its like talking to a child, most teenagers have that same know it all attitude, my way or the highway. which is fine just don't jump down my throat when I disagree with you. don't call me a troll when I have a different point of view. the reason you got a reply like that is simply cos of what you said to me already, judging me without even knowing if I like or dislike Hamilton. you're a fan, I get it

    F1 Tyre Poll

    I honestly thought more people would have said yes. whilst I don't think the Pirelli tyres are that bad I was shocked they were forced into changing them after the british gp last year and reverted back to the favoured tyre of the red bull basically handing them the championship. I thought the tyre storm was a bit ott last year and was clearly something to do with the kerbs at the circuit as similar demands had already been placed on the same tyres with no blow ups or de-lams

    because 90% of the people here are, 1, brits and 2, Hamilton fans lulz seriously I was pointing out how Hamilton done similar things. ok so im guessing you cant see it that way, you think I hate Hamilton lol bla bla bla im pointing out they are similar. im not explaining brain surgery its not complicated, do you understand? shall I talk slower? spell each word to you? when Alonso was with Renault he done exactly that on the radio to his team in the Canadian gp as they asked him to let fisichella past. so there you go. I know Alonso called Hamilton much worse than a cucumber in 2007 and hamiltons remarks in Monaco I cant remember the year, that time he took massa off about 3 times in 1 lap. lol I don't have a selective memory I have a photographic memory and remember most things lulz your hate for vettel grows deeper each day and will only lead you to the dark side :) pmsl this is fun talking to you, reminds me of teaching my kid the ways of the world

    MotoGP

    I think maniac joe would give him a run for his money I really do. I honestly rate scott redding better than Bradley smith. at least redding was challenging for the moto2 title before he came up. scott redding on a Honda now that would be good but he aint Spanish so it probably will never happen lol
