    Are cars meant to look trashed before the race?

    I assumed the OP was just talking about texture streaming. Lol. This game actually loads in the wrong textures???
  2. Yes, as I stated days ago, TAA is the problem with soft Tree graphics. ps: don't listen to Jesped. He has no idea what he's talking about.
  3. Chromatic Aberration? I believe it's actually called Chromatic Abortion.

    Watered down damage.

    IMO, Grid 2 is easily the best Grid game. By miles.
  5. You seem like someone who knows a little about what they're talking about. Obviously then, you know that almost all games use a combination of cube maps and SSR. Barely any race games rely entirely on SSR. Grid uses a cubemap/SSR combination. Yes, those cube maps could better designed to fit into the world but that's an artistic issue and not a graphical limitation.
  6. I don't see the issues? Honestly, it's a fine looking game.

    Huge rhythmic stutter on high end PC

    Yeah, this has stopped me playing it. Disabling USB devices does fix the issue, but I CBF'd doing that each time.

    Huge rhythmic stutter on high end PC

    Umm, erratic frame pacing (even just 5ms here and there) is noticeable to most people. These stutters are probably in excess of 50ms or even 100ms, it renders the game almost unplayable.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Hah, I wish. It's just too much effort to set the wheel up only to be second guessing this game each time. If I had a dedicated setup for race games I would always be back.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I've decided this morning that I'm out. Too many bugs in this game to continue trying to invest time into it. I'm sick of the OSD disappearing from the interior views (which are still linked to odd FFB bugs), I'm sick of the constant stuttering (which began when I changed from a G920 to a G29 - like, WTH Codies? What are you doing?). I'm also sick of Racenet delaying menu load times by 10 seconds each time. It's just too much effort, half the battle with this game is sorting out technical issues. I might be back for Dirt 3.0, but I doubt it. Will probably buy F1 2019 though.
  11. I want Codies to implement cool cheatcodes like they used to. Why can't I press Up, Down, Down, Left, Left and get to drive a tank or a UFO? 😞 Why can't I press Start and Select at the menu to unlock a hidden Moon track?
  12. It depends on why it is blurry. Without seeing or playing it on Xbox S I can't tell, but I'd guess it's the antialiasing which is being used to mask a really noisy/low res image. So removing what's causing the blurriness will not result in a sharp image.

    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.
  14. 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.
  19. 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..
  23. 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.
