    My public apology.

    This apology is for you @Loore and the rest of Codemasters. I have just played about 1 and a half hours on the Everything Online Playlist and have had no problems whatsoever. The reason I feel compelled to apologize is because I thought for sure that GAS on the Xbox was not going to be fixed. Even though we were told it was going to be fixed. I did not believe it. You all (CM) could have just thrown up your hands and said "Nothing can be done to fix it!" And just left it at that. But, no you fixed it like you said you would and for that I say thank you. I would gladly buy you all a round. Here's to you all for following through on your promises.

    Fastest platform?

    After playing ETX's Nascar games there was a difference in speed on track across PS3, 360, & PC. Even the car setup's were a bit different for each platform. Does that happen here too? What made me wonder this is the difference in time on the Eibach Challenge. Almost a half second faster on PC than it is on Xbox & PS3. Now it is completely possible that the faster person on PC wzs just faster. http://eibach.com/america/en/grid-autosport-eibach-challenge  But, I was just wondering if there is a difference between platforms. I know a couple of people @XoxFlukeXox‌  & @TheKazzyMac‌ that play on Xbox & PC. I am just curious if there is a difference in setups/tuning too.  I can run some laps at the Indy oval in an Indycar, V8 Supercar, & a Veyron. Not tuned and not upgraded just to see what happens. Between the platforms. I will do an upgraded run too. On Ti e Attaxk and post my fastest lap times after a couple runs. I don't know if I will do tuned/setup runs too. 
  3. I was wondering if anybody still has codes for this game. I know it is ancient butthe code I am looking for is the slot car racing code. I am too lazy to complete the entire game to unlock this particular mode. I am playing on the PS2. If you have any other codes that will work that would be great too!
  4. I have noticed that the cost to maintain cars is a lot more affordable.  But, I have been "locked up" twice now at the race load screen. I have noticed problems like this before with other games after I downloaded an update. So hopefully it is just a wrinkle that will get ironed out.  I did get 500,000 credits added to my in-game account. Other folks said theybgot them as well, so thank you Codies for that. I have raced about 8 to 10 "Online Playlist" races and this all I have noticed so far anybody else see anything else?
  5. The variety of cars is terrific. The racing is terrific. And it would make for a terrific game or could have been a terrific dlc. It should be easy to see which car I am pulling for being that I am from the U.S. When you say "classic" this is what I think of when you say classic.http://youtu.be/cawBXWWgqCI
  6. I was playing today with a few people today and a player asked why did I change my livery? I told him because we went from a race to time attack. What does that have to do with anything he said. I said, well there are sponsors that only pay for certain types of events. Some only pay for TA's, Endurance, Drift & regular races. Also there are sponsors that will pay for any event as long as you meet the criteria. Then there are sponsors that only apply to certain classes of cars. Like Firestone pays for the Indycars only. So cars like my drift cars only have sponsors that will pay for drift events. I also have Endurance only liveries for my Endurance cars. Then there was 3 to 4 other players that did not really pay that much attention to this & had not thought about making event specific liveries for their cars. So that is why I thought I should pass this little nugget along. My main livery is the one I use for my club (I think it's just me) that livery has my race sponsors on it and the general sponsors. 
  7. Has anubody noticed that after the host's set amount of races (ex.5/5) in Online Custom Cup, that there is no extra reward for the Points Champion? Or am I missing it? Not only the Champ, but 2nd on back to 12th.  After all of the races are over I only see your finishing place rewards for the last race. I only see the points in the lobby before the next set of races are due to start.  I would think for winning the points championship you should get a decent payout. If the car you are using in these races is at a higher level it will cost you a good amount of credits to repair in between races. I just think it would be more of an incentive for people not to retire or just quit completely. Although it is entirely possible I am missing the payout rewards completely.  
  8. This poll I think is pretty self explanatory. You don't have to comment. But if you do there is nothing to really gain by the "My platform is better than your's" arguments.
  9. I do not know how or why the 1st poll I made got posted before I could add the new options. I think I got all of the bases covered now. Again it does not need to spiral into a mine is better than your's debate.

    Corruption Tuesday?

    July 1st I get with a Corrupt save file, then today I get another corruption notice. Is it just me or does it seem like it is hitting folks on Tuesday? If you got hit multiple times or even just once. Please comment below what day it was if you remember thanks. Also if say the last time you played was on a Tuesday and then you tried to play again on let's just say Thursday. Then you got hit with it again, I would say that counts as a Tuesday corruption too. Because the last save file was created on a Tuesday.  I just want to see if there is a pattern developing. So just let me know when you got corrupted please thanks.
  11. That maybe just maybe all of the fixes for this game will take just long enough to weed out more of the idiots, from online play. Because all they seem to care about is ruining our fun. And hopefully the game will be a lot closer to the expectations that most reasonable people have for it. And all of the wreckers, griefers and just overall buttholes will go play Grand Theft of Duty 46 and leave us alone. So maybe some fixes take just long enough to scare them all off.  I would gladly give up a little morw time for these dummies to leave this game to all of us that actually have some fun playing cleanly and racing each other win or lose. Or some of the guys that enjoy smashing people will find out that getting better at playing the game is more fun than trying to be a nuisance. 
  12. If you are at a higher level and lower level players smash into you, run you off the track, use your rear bumper for they're brakes, and all because you either played more or got the game earlier. And Gawd forbid you give this treatment back to them.

    Double XP weekends

    Any besides me think this would be a good idea? Of course not every weekend but, maybe when DLC's come out?

    My fault?

    Racing this morning online on Xbox. It was the last lap in Super Utes at Autosport Raceway. On the last corner of the race. It is the long banked sweeper to the finish. I am in 4th & right on 3rd. I get inside off the slow 180 degree corner. I am going to beat the guy fair & square because I got around the corner better.  This is where I am having trouble understanding. This person starts to block me and force me low. I start slowing because of the contact and of course he keeps pushing. I am pushing back just to stay on the track! So then pretty much the guy puts a PIT maneuver on himself. I never lift and just cut left to spin him the rest of the way. So I can keep going. Of course I get the message of swearing: F'ING TW*T!!!! My response "You were blocking me".   I have been racing for a long time in the real world and the cyber world. And I have no clue how this could be my fault. Is it?

    Tuning Question

    When you unlock tuning options it comes up in rewards after racing. I cannot remember what level this option comes up. But I see one for "Ride height adjustment" or so ething to that effect. Where can you adjust this? I do not see it. I am on Xbox.  All I see is, in this order: Brake Bias                                           Differential                                           Downforce                                           Gear Ratios                                           Suspension (Front)                                           Suspension (Rear)I know that the further you level up you car you get more tunability but I see no option for Ride Height Adjustment

    Team No Weak Links

    FAIR BUT FIRM RACING IS WHAT I AM ABOUT I HOPE YOU ARE ABOUT THAT TOO! I DO NOT BELIEVE IN TEAM LIVERIES IF YOU WANT TO RUN YOURS THEN BY ALL MEANS DO IT. I ALSO DO NOT BELIEVE IN MAKING PEOPLE FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE TO PROVE SOMETHING TO GET IN. NO MINIMUM LAP TIME TESTS OR LEVEL REQUIREMENTS. AFTER ALL THIS IS A GAME, THAT IS ALL IT IS. IF THEY START MAKING XBOX'S WITH CURRENCY PRINTERS THEN THINGS MAY CHANGE. UNTIL THEN HAVE FUN BECAUSE IT IS ONLY A GAME. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT BEING THE WEAKEST LINK, BECAUSE WE HAVE NO WEAK LINKS!!!  We play on the Xbox. Sorry about all of the CAPS!! I am not shouting I swear. If you see one of us in a race hit us up and say hello. If you block us we will get you. I do know a lot people that play so if you are a blocker I will put the word out on you. Can you tell I just got blocked a bunch earlier today? 
  17. Just starting the game this morning. And I get this dreaded message:  GRID AUTOSPORTThe save data is corrupt.(prompt for) OK  I had 199 online races & about 200k in the bank & I think I had 9 or 10 cars of varying levels.What happened? What should I do? Am I screwed? As the Magic 8 Ball says all signs point to YES!!Did I do something wrong?

    Online Playlist

    I agree with some of the others, I am afraid of problems that may arise from changes to anything. I see the piece of straw laying on the ground and the poor camel is straining now.

    Wow the game does not freeze anymore

    I had a freeze yesterday but, it was because XBL went down. When the game froze was in the load screen, where it was freezing before. So of course I thought not again!! But then I noticed I got the disconnected form XBL message. Weird coincedence.
  20. FOSTBITTEN

    My public apology.

    Well for the time being XBL is down. If it is hackers that are responsible for the outage, they should be made to pay us for the downtime (in my dreams & in a perfect world). And M$ should pay us for the outage too (again in my perfect world). Although if my math is correct that comes down to like 32 cents (U.S.) for two days. So screw it. I will go do something else.

    My public apology.

    Maybe my apology was misunderstood. I only apologized for not believing @Loore & the rest of CM would not fix the freezing problem. And just leave us hanging. That is why I have been M.I.A. on this board for more than a month. I just gave up hope that the freezing would be fixed. I would scan through the posts every once in a while to see if there was a patch yet. And just kept reading that soon there was a fix coming again & again. Like I said above I got to the point where I did not believe it.  And some of you know I was here from day one actually 3 days prior to release in the U.K. I bought the game on Tuesday morning. So I was here for the corruptions and the other problems. So yeah I am still a little bitter when I looked at some players stats and knew that my level would have been right there with theirs if I had not had 3 data corruptions. And those corruptions came after level 60. But, then again I just stopped playing after the freezing glitch started happening as well. So yeah that contributed to my level not being higher too. I am still at level 131 so who knows where I would have been had it not been for the 3 corruptions & freezing.  The higher level guys I had noticed were not names I recoginzed so most likely they came in after the corruptions. As well as some of the commentors here. So let me clarify my apology again. My apology is to CM for thinking they did not care about fixing the freezing problem. But, as @Loore promised the problem was fixed. It may have taken longer to fix it than what most people (including me) would have liked to have seen but, it was fixed as they said it would be. Again cheers to you CM for fixing as you said you would.  And to put things in perspective (in my mind) it is a game not a Takata airbag. All seems to be right in world of GAS and for that I am happy and a bit rusty in gameplay.

    Perfect Mount Panorama - Lola B12/80

    I know what you are saying about the "perfect lap" I was just commenting on my thoughts of the quest for the "perfect lap". It is all cool, Ride the walls do whatever you want to do. If it is perfect for you then that is cool with me. It is a free world after all and we are only along for the ride!  :)

    Perfect Mount Panorama - Lola B12/80

    I am sorry but, what? I don't follow you. I am not saying anything to put you down.

    Perfect Mount Panorama - Lola B12/80

    I was always under the impression that there is no such thing as a "perfect lap". I have never had a "perfect lap" in any type of racing. Real-world or the digital one, there is always somewhere you left a bit of time out there on the track. That is what keeps me coming back is the search for that perfect lap. I know by now I will never get it. But, it sure is exciting trying to get it!  I am lucky enough to have raced Karts that were set up so perfect to the conditions and track that it felt like it would drive itself and I was the one that was screwing the Kart up not the other way around. It is a great feeling going through a corner with minimal input on your part and knowing it was fast. But the flipside of that is thinking that you still left something out there on the track. Therefore the only perfect lap in the digital world is a lap that A.I. can do by knowing exactly what is the absolute best time is possible to get around that track in that given car. At least that is my thought process anyways. I always wondered if game devs will look at the best possible time for a track & car. And giggle and say that guy at #1 is still about 5 tenths of the best possible time.

    My public apology.

    @RWBSUPERCHARGER‌ What in the blue hell are you talking about? My point is invalid? Also if you are thinking I am still mad about you accusing me of being a cheater. No I am not mad at you, hell I even forgot about it. And I had to stop to think what you are even going on about. Stop flattering yourself I forgot about it a while back. Obviously you didn't, and for that you have my apology too.  Chalk that up to a lesson learned for me. The next time someone calls me a cheat, after I did not cheat I should apologize right away so as not to upset the accuser. Never to old learn something I guess.
