    Monza Circuit Accuracy

    The oval never passed over the second chicane. There was a bridge/gantry that has been gone for the past two years now. Surprisingly one of the few things that is accurate about Monza, though...

    Unrealistic and annoying throttle application

    If it were a lack in lateral grip (and there is, but that's not what I'm worried about), then yes. But the lack in longitudinal grip means that there is still an excess of wheelspin when the car should probably be more settled whilst power is being delivered. It feels like there's no rear toe in, even if there is a lot of it in the setup. (And yes, I'm being gentle in power delivery!)

    Unrealistic and annoying throttle application

    I'd agree that grip at low speed seems lacking - it feels like the tyre can't take any longitudinal load at low speed, which is odd given that at high speed there is definitely a lot more grip this year. Overall the handling is improved, and I really enjoy the driving, but the first few corners at Bahrain and Anthony Noghes at Monaco can be a miserable experience in applying power

    Why only first gear at start?

    Above post is nonsense - drivers have indeed started in 2nd gear for wet starts to provide better launches. No one starts from neutral, that's the whole point of the clutch

    Disappointed by latest PC Patch

    My mate Joe could finally be at place without his head before the patch. 😞

    Merge career and my team

    I like that they're separate, actually, means you can experience both at once without hassle

    AI in rain too difficult?

    You have weather forecasts for a reason! Compromise your setup to work in both conditions.
  8. 1. A detailed description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. Using ingame photo mode. All photos in MyGames folder appear blank. 2. Platform PC 3. What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) 1.03 4. Game-mode? Any 5. What are your replication numbers? Minimum test attempts are 4. Please also add EXACT replication steps for us to try too. Every photo is blank with 100% success 6. What troubleshooting have you attempted? Please always try to attempt to fix the issue Deleted hardwaresettings folder to let game generate a new one in case it'd fix the issue, but it didn't. 7. What peripherals are you are using (gamepad, wheel make & model etc) N/A 8. Any screenshots or video of the issue? If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears. See attachments. Also included hardwaresettings folder for troubleshooting if it helps. It's interesting for me to note that this seems to be an issue with the alpha channel in particular. They aren't black or white, they're all transparent. Given that previous years exported as BMP I wonder if it's related to it exporting as PNG instead for whatever reason. I'm not asking for a fix or a solution right away, but it'd be nice to make use of the features that a lot of my friends are using that I can't. hardwaresettings.zip
  9. There are people with disabilities that lack the physical ability to threshold brake properly. Even iRacing allows driver aids for those who are physically impaired. There's nothing "noobish" about them - this attitude is frankly what makes sim racing hard to get into for some. If it's faster than playing without ABS, that's another thing, but it should at least be able to make a level playing field for everyone.

    DSQ from Tyre Change Master Thread

    Yeah, just had this issue during a 25% race at Montreal as well. Disqualified for not running two compounds despite starting on mediums and going soft at the stop. Very frustrating.

    David Greco's Handling, Driving and Setup Q&A

    It is very rare that a car will have two lines of symmetry in regards to setup. Suspension balance will need to differ because the loads and jobs of each end of the car are completely different. The actual aero balance in single seaters is most often biased towards the rear (usually around 38% to 46% front aero balance, depending on car and series) but the adjustments mean that the front is a finer adjustment than the rear, which often leads to it having higher values. The differential needs to do completely different jobs on and off throttle - what's the point of a LSD if you don't take advantage of it? And so on. A 'neutral' symmetrical setup doesn't necessarily mean a neutral car either -- often it actually means the car is poorly setup.

    Lee Mather Responds to Scanned Tracks

    It's not just the bus stop at Spa that needs improved... it's all of Spa that needs to be put in the bin and started fresh.

    ERS Deployment - F1 2020

    There is an irony in someone using iRacing's old hybrid model as an example of realism when it's been changed a dozen times since with its own exploits and flaws. iRacing's fixed and adaptive modes have since been replaced with a manual and automatic trim control with an additional qualifying mode. The trim control better represents how energy is deployed in these cars but it's still a compromise for not being able to properly map the track. Automatic "learns" the track similar to the changes for 2020 and automatically controls the trim, but Manual in iRacing always ends up being set to minimum trim with just spamming the boost button instead. (This is how the more relevant to iRacing LMP1 meta ended out as, too). Nonetheless it is still a compromise on how the modes on these cars are actually setup - the energy deployment is mapped to the track, and the only control the driver has are modes to bias towards harvesting or deploying more, or a neutral mode that aims to reach a target SOC per lap, with the engine modes making more of a difference -- the only special one is the quali mode that is full power and dumping as much energy as you can in the lap.

    DiRTy Gossip

    Might have been asked already, but going through the entire thread to find that one answer seems... a bit loony, to say the least. haha. It's a bit of a weird one, but is there any chance of you doing an option to have yourself as a co-driver @KickUp ? It would add a feel of consistency from DiRT Rally for me personally and I personally feel you're one of the best co-drivers we've had in a rally game. Nothing against Nicky Grist, of course, though! If it's too late in the development cycle or it's just not something you'd want to do, that's grand too, but I don't think it's too far fetched a question. :smile:
