    I know I can do these things, it's still a failing on the game's behalf that this is a thing. Codies should have known of this issue during their testing.

    You can turn HDR off on the consoles. On Ps4 it's per game an on Xbox it's in the system settings. I have the PC version and the rain graphics are poor and the snow is too bright.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    No fear in Sweden? My palms are sweating even when it's 5 left, into 6 right, into 6 left lmao.

    OMG, I have just seen these rain graphics for the first time. Unbelievable bad, awful. Worst I've seen in years in a racing game.
  5. It comes down to 'why' it is blurry. No one seems to know this. If it's a bug then it should be fixed. If it's a poor settings choice from Codies - like maybe poor AA implementation, poor motion blur or some other setting that could be adjusted to improve image clarity then Codies probably should consider adjusting it. But, if it's a result of tech. limitations of the Xbox S - like 720p/900p - and possibly cheap AA/AF - due to limitations of the S - then there's really not much Codies can do.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    What does the co-driver mean when he says stuff like "100 crest". Does he mean in 100m there is a crest?

    F1 2014 reviews

    I think Codies create problems when they needn't be. They need to look up the acronym for KISS and just provide a game with a simple but enjoyable driving model. I know games have increased in complexity considerably since Colin McRae and the original TOCA series, but if Codies could provide enjoyable real life based arcade games why can't they do it in 2014?

    ERS, why do people complain?

    I don't believe that's the case for 2014. Correct me if I'm wrong though, but any kind of control over ERS is removed from the driver.
  10. Not really interested in this one. Bought '11, '12 & '13 and each one of them has been underwhelming and honestly, felt like the same game. The annoying physic assists the permeate modern Codies racing games are there in full force, making the cars feel very strange, even with a wheel. The large amount of bugs and basic glitches, that should be have been ironed out during the beta, yet continue to exist for months or throughout the products' life, is terrible and a real poor reflection on Codies.

    Braking in 2014 is madness

    Codemasters have always, as far as I'm aware, advertised this 2014 version as "the most accessible Formula 1 video game yet". In other words, the easiest F1 game. The previous games were more arcade than sim and this 2014 release is even less focused on simulation.

    Save corrupt... what a ****

    It's Codies :( They can't figure this stuff out (seriously @ Loore, what kind of drop kicks does your company hire?). I don't mean to be rude, but save files are something that every company can get right but Codemasters seems to struggle at it?

    GRID Autosport Feedback

    yeah I've not played the game yet so can't speak from first hand experience but I think some of it's been a little unnecessary given the short turnaround CM have had to create this game. Is that so? Grid2 was a blunder of a game. Drove nice enough but the game around it was almost non-existent. Not what was expected. Now they "fix" it and charge owners of Grid2 again AAA dollars? I find this ludicrous and wrong. I maybe buy F1 2014 but only if I get a PROPER 14-day trial demo that is unlocked. If not - no cash from me. And Grid-Autosport I will give a miss because of the above reasons. I find CM really unethical. Only topped by EA tbh. The "Drove nice enough" comment says it all, Sorry but Grid 2 was utter pants, so was Dirt Showdown. CM tried a change of direction and it failed to take off.. We TOCA/GRID/CMR fans gave them such a had time over this that they actually listened to us and GAS is the response. When you ever heard of EA answering a question let alone fixing one? they leave that entirely to the community at large..... Sorry but I give credit to the people who ARE willing to say "Sorry people we screwed the pooch on this, here's what you say you actually wanted". unlike EA's typical attitude of "How sad, to bad, we got your money and we're in the pub!". As for AAA prices? GAS @ £26.99 if you own Grid 2 (£29.99 if not) plus £22.99 for all 8 DLC's a total of around £50. Now compare that to BF4 Premium £90+ (when I bought it now £69,98) with 5 DLC's? THAT'S ludicrous pricing. So you think that the CM Staff shouldn't get paid for their efforts to create a new game? If it upsets you so badly vote with your wallet dude... Yeah Grid 2 was nothing more than a glorified NFS game without the police chases really. Grid 2's handling model apart from the 'faster to drift through corners mechanics' was still in a different league to any NFS game I've ever played. Dirt Showdown would be a better comparison. I agree. Grid 2's system was a nice 'easy to learn, hard to master'. I enjoyed every second of Grid 2, it was nice to play a game that didn't take itself too seriously..
  14. It's the way the Leaderboards display the data, it's a weird way to do it. If you filter it to display others' times, it displays the closest 20 times slower than yours and the closest 20 times faster than yours (with you in 21st). That's why you're in 21st. It's strange and would be good to see a comparison between my times and the actual fastest.

    GRID Autosport Feedback

    I'd like to work for Codies, but I'd get sick of people bi*ching about the quality of my work. Haha.
  16. Grid: Autosport is definitely more realistic, but only marginally. The drifting in Grid 2 was a very nice way to hide the lack of physics and Autosports attempt to be more authentic really only serves to reveal the problems with this physics engine.  I actually just played Grid 1 for the first time just then (yay for Steam sales!). I have to say, it's a lot better feeling than both Grid 2 and Autosport... they were really on the right track back then (pun!). I played iRacing for years, but don't play it up much now as took up too much time! lol

    We are waiting for you. In the test chamber.

    GRID Autosport Feedback

    Agreed. I also don't need to hear that I get a extra point for qualifying first, or that Nathan McKane will be replaying that race over and over again.To be honest, the radio comms falls flat and is a real missed opportunity. 
  19. Hehe. It was a simple, fun game. Accessible, I liked it. 
  20. True. But it's subjective anyway. I like Autosport, but am leaning towards Grid 2 as being the better game. 
  21. I thought that might get a few replies. Hehe.

    lol It's actually the most probable scenario. ...

    Here's me racing around Bathurst in AS for the first time. http://youtu.be/zDkVfMzLB1U
  24. Grid 2 has more realistic handling (yep) but Autosport attempts to be more realistic.

    Fastest Lap Time Bug

    This how all Codies games are. They're fun, but don't look too closely, it's all too easy to see the strings and puppets etc behind the scenes.
