    Car Level Bug - known?

    A couple of nights ago two of my owned cars were reset to level 1, but kept their updates etc. This happened while playing multiplayer. I haven't seen this reported before so thought I should mention it.
  2. Any tips for this one? I've been round it hundreds of times now and can't get Platinum, though I am only a couple of tenths off. Yet from the leader-board there's plenty of times 5-6 seconds faster than me. I'm in a fully spec'd car, though not sure about the right settings and the only helpers I have on are Automatic gears and ABS. I should probably add that this is not a convoluted cheat accusation thread; there are far too many people ahead of me for that to be a possibility. I know I'm pretty rubbish but I'd genuinely like some tips or even a video of a sub 2:10 time if anyone has one.
  3. As  I have no chance to rank highly in the Racenet Challenges I'm not too concerned with cheats, presumably they don't get as much out of it by ranking top as I do putting in a personal 'superlap' that gets me into the top 30%. But I'm genuinely surprised to see last week's obvious cheat (won't name them but if you watched the rankings it was pretty obvious, by tens of seconds) hasn't been banned but is now ranking 2nd or 3rd in some of the disciplines. Presumably they've just learnt how to cheat more believably.
  4. How can I backup my saves on the PC/Steam version of Grid Autosport? With the reported problems it would seem sensible now I have a lot of time invested in the game. Thanks in advance.
  5. I try not to whine too much, but how much longer do we have to wait for a fix to the ruinous cost of repairs? In this weeks Racenet Challenge for Touring Cars a clean race costs me 10K in repairs and earns me 8K for a win. I have a feeling it'll be even worse for some of the other disciplines.
  6. Steam reports under game/properties/dlc that it is not installed after purchase. There's nothingin game to suggest it's installed or not. Any ideas?
  7. Like the topic says, can we have an option to fix all damage to our cars before a race with them? Clicking all the time to do this is proving a chore. Just a small thing but annoying.

    Grid/Codemaster's killer

    The Xbox experience in particular sounds pretty horrible, but I can only speak for the PC version of GAS - and that remains a very playable, enjoyable game with few problems.

    DLC Alarm Bells!!!

    Perhaps you could have one Online Playlist specially for owners of the Touring Car dlc (and any future DLC with tracks) which played through the 8(?) available routes through the 2 new tracks with the new cars.

    A PC-Forum and a Consoles-Forum

    I think it would help if the technical assistance forum was split for obvious reasons but see no need in the general discussion.

    Racism and bullying

    The racism issues aside I think it's one thing to kick vote a player for intentionally acting like a dick and crashing into people and another to kick vote for someone who is just not quite as good as you on the brakes and puts in the occasional crash. The latter is pretty poor and intolerant behaviour (by the kick voter). If you want that kind of game stay in the custom cups where you can play to your own rules rather than imposing them on an open room.
  12. Ban people for expressing their opinion that wall-riding is okay? Erm. Right.
  13. I forget the details but there was in incident in Formula One many years ago where a driver crashed their car on purpose around a final corner to get a faster qualifying time. Is that cheating? Seems on the same level as wall-riding. I don't see it as cheating since it's part of the game and not something like a hack where the player has to do something to enable the advantage. Not that it matters to me, if I gained a second a lap I'd reach the heady heights of 7:17.

    Help please codemasters

    Do upgrades work or not? I was under the impression that if you bought any tuning then they didn't. It seems that way from my limited experience using an untuned lv50 car. (PC)

    Where is the Intel Challenge?

    Sorry for my stupidity above, I thought I'd seen it in game but clearly hadn't. Won't be the last time I talk a load of rubbish I'm sure.

    Event Cash Rewards

    You'll note the extraordinary generosity of CM doesn't quite stretch to allowing the Boost pack to give you 50% of all the cash/XP you earn, but just the small amount of basic rewards.

    Where is the Intel Challenge?

    It's labelled the Intel Challenge on the PC, I'm in the UK if that changes things.

    @justbiglee re: console patches

    Sony gave it the ok, but the bug that MS found would also be in the Sony code so Codemasters put a pause on both to put a new fix for that in. @Loore‌ said that - sorry I didn't make a note of the thread.  I'm guessing that 3rd party developers don't get the same speed of service as the in-house guys do with either brand.

    Update 20.08.2014

    The PC arms race has slowed down recently, at least where it matters for games in the CPU and GPU - no big new processor families or die size changes in a while. That's what led me back to the platform as something to game on, as effectively all I needed was a 200 quid graphics card to turn my PC into a gaming rig. This was handy as I found both new consoles to be pretty uninspiring - particularly the increasing limitations they both put on media playback but also the games available and coming out. Wish GTA V would come out on the PC quicker though, missing my daily carnage.

    31,256FT ?

    You only get more cash for each 10% range you go up. Might be different in the top 10%.

    Pulling a Xbox drive off the side isn't the big operation it is on a PS3 (or indeed PC).

    so this week's cheat is....

    The problem with anti-cheat technology is that you simply start an arms war between cheat programmers and anti-cheat programmers - particularly on an open platform like the PC. There is of course room for sensible precautions but beyond a certain point it's a case of diminishing returns. My advice is just to go for your own times and try to get better - people who cheat are the real losers as they gain nothing. How this is going to work out over the next two weeks where the Intel Challenge does win real-world prizes should be interesting.

    The game save corruption is a deal breaker and should have been rush patched on consoles like it was on PC. But other than that the patch list is no better or worse than that for any other game I've played. And the forums for those games are just the same: claiming it's the worst most broken terrible game in the world. They can't all be.

    Fix the racenet challenges!

    Washington Hill circuit with the Lancia? Ha, nightmare.

    so this week's cheat is....

    Do remember that some people may be getting these scores due to bugs rather than deliberate cheating. Not saying that's the case here but you never know.
