    Corrupt Save Files - Fix Incoming!

    im still waiting for actual proof that the patch has been sent to microscam and sony. what i have seen is multiple claims at different times that the patchcwas just sent, which usually means it was intended to happen but didnt, someone doesnt have all the info, or both. it has been over a month since my first corrupt gamesave, and still nothing. i have never played a game with such a major issue left unsolved for so long. too bad we cant get a full refund in america, all i can do is bring it back for half its value store credit, or $5 trade in value... what a waste of $50!

    Corrupt Save Files - Fix Incoming!

    a patch cant be rushed? yet the release of the game must have been- most other developers would have taken the time to see what errors could occur, and fix them, BEFORE the official release to the public. which looks worse- "sorry, we have to delay the release a week or two due to errors seen in beta testing", or "sorry, you have to wait about a month and a half because we didnt fix an issue and the patch takes time"  either way you lose customers, but i assure you, you would be making more money if you solved the issue before releasing the game.

    Corrupt Save Files - Fix Incoming!

    dunno how to use it as i amon a console, that PC patch was already released, and has been confirmed to fix the issue. do look online for how to download the pc patch, i dunno if its automatic or not, what i do know is that patch is out and people have already gotten their saves fixed on PC. xbox and playstation are the ones still waiting for codies to get the fix out

    I Just Want To Say Thanks....

    and this game isnt? it has been out for quite a while now, still no fix to the corrupt gamesave issue, and no word on if microsoft is gunna let the patch through. any pride gained by making the game look great is lost by continuing to put out games with crippling errors. for those who havent experienced the issue, you are lucky and have every reason to love the game and disagree with everything i say. but those who have had one or mutliple gamesaves corrupted know what im talking about when i say shame on you codemasters, you are just selling us all another scam. oh and thanks for all the dlc, now people can spend more money on a game that still hasnt been fixed.

    Corrupt Save Files - Fix Incoming!

    another gamesave corrupted- thanks for wasting my time and money. instead of ignoring us all- how about you "codemasters" tell us how far along this patch really is, so far i have yet to see evidence that you actually put the patch through to microscam. if you have already done it, why is your dlc out faster, and why can we not find any hard evidence that you have the patch done and through to microscam? oh and a better idea- properly test most or all aspects of the game before releasing it, such a crippling and major error in your code shouldnt have to wait until everybody has the issue, as that will shy away customers. do it right from the get go, and you wont need to worry about people with corrupted gamesaves! - on a less productive note, i wont be resetting my gamesave to keep playing so sorry friends and racing rivals, and quite honestly if this takes too long ill just be selling the game, no reason to wait or play if there isnt hope of a fix

    Corrupt Save Files - Fix Incoming!

    you would do well to better understand the console patch system. as clearly stated by loore, companies like sony and microscam require game makers to run through a million hoops, including stupid QA and shiznit, and then they are allowed to give us the patch. as also stated by loore, that patch is being submited. what does that mean? that means CM HAS DONE THEIR BLOODY WORK FOR US CONSOLE GUYS. if you want the patch to go through quicker, complain to the maker of your console, as any further delay is on their head, not codemasters. codemasters cannot change or bypass the system put in place, so they have to wait for microscam and sony to let the patch go through, just as we do.

    Consoles need a patch, Codies

    as i stated earlier, this is to simulate real track conditions. i have been on track in a variety of vehicles, and rarely do i notice any of the gauges or dials on the dash, and yes, there have been vehicles that, due to seating position, im to focused on the track and vehicles around me to notice the wheel that is in my hands, or the shifter to my right (and on one occasion, left). its all a part of attempt to bring grid back to the realistic racing it was in the first grid

    THE PITS. Codies, can they be opened?

    not only that, some endurance classes have been able to run up to 5 hours on a set of tires, insane! still, the added strategy involved if we are forced to pit or run on blown out tires will make it harder for useless scrubs to come close to the more skilled drivers online.

    THE PITS. Codies, can they be opened?

    pit stops get my vote only for long endurance races, and with that, increased tire wear. at the moment, i can run an entire endurance event on one set of tires, however in real endurance racing, they tend to change tires at least once in a race. making an adjustment such that you need to pit will add yet another strategy to the game- pit strategy- which will further distinguish the skilled drivers from the crash and bash idiots

    Consoles need a patch, Codies

    not confirmed, in fact it WONT happen, i base that off the comments made by CM before the game was released. the foggy, low detail cockpits are to simulate the REAL effect that driving a race car has, which is that you focus on the track and cars around you, so they made the cockpits such that they look well out of focus, accurate, as when you are racing, you dont pay attention to your cockpit, you pay attention to the track around you. detailed cockpits are for forza- a game about cars. grid is a game about racing, and the fact of the matter is CM are trying to make this game as realistic as possible, from tire wear, to damage, to physics, to yes, out of focus cockpits

    Consoles need a patch, Codies

    I'm doing that, also I've checked if my results count towards the clubs XP and they don't, extremely annoying. what console- this is not an issue on xbox 360, never had this problem and i have asked a few other guys i drive with, same deal. as far as pits, not practical, i have finished races with 40% tires left. i have also finished races with 0-5% tires left. it all depends on how you drive. for the record, the 40% one i finished second place, 20 feet behind first

    Corrupt Save Files - Fix Incoming!

    We are in the xbox community, so im hoping its in the next few days. :)  i hope its soon, i dont want my second save corrupted, especially now that i have an average finish of first :D however, the downside is i get banned from every fricking lobby for it :( oh well. racing is always better when you dont lose your progress every few days!

    what system do you run on, and how were they restored- patch, or did you send em to CM?

    Corrupt Save Files - Fix Incoming!

    loore said gamesaves can be restored once the patch is out, at least thats my understanding. read back a bit, the response he gave is a bit vague but i believe he is confirming that corrupted saves will be back to normal. dont take my word, i may be miss-interpreting what he said
  16. i have to agree with 90% of the OP's statement, and that 10% isnt worth mentioning. good review if you ask me what system you play on? im always looking for more people to skid with, xbox360 gt- alex98sc10
  17. Man with that kind of speed you must be FIRE!! oh oh haxor, ban him! ban him now!

    Qualifying is a joke

    But when my lap is complete the same lap time is still at the top. I know I'm not slower though the final sector as in the race I'm able to keep up with the lead AI through those corners. Ais rarely drive as quickly during the race, just as real drivers rarely go as quickly as they did in qualifying. they have to defend their position in a race, which compromises their line and speed, which then hurts their lap times. they also have to pass other drivers, or wait behind them, both of which compromise race lines and lap times. in qualifying, you can get a full clean lap, no compromise, no distraction, nobody trying to pass for position. just the driver the car and the track, which should allow them to hit all their marks and run faster lap times. i have had similar issued in qualifying, and it was down to the fact that i wasnt hitting my apexes correctly in the third sector. during the race, everyone had slowed down, so i was able to keep up in the third sector, and make my passes in the others. its just one of those facts of racing and life in general, you cant be perfect everywhere, so you gotta learn how to make due, and capitalize on your enemies mistakes, and on your strengths, while trying to work around your weaknesses

    Garage Slots

    the idea is that players should be limiting themselves to cars they run most often, versus the forza approach to let us buy a few hundred cars, even though there arent nearly as many categories. i agree that the cap should be at least 40, however, as some dlc will include extra garage slots, it eliminates some of the motivation to buy such dlc. which means codies will get less cash profit for their work. they are a business remember, and they need to make money where they can, so that they can keep producing games for their customers.
  20. That's perfectly acceptable, as long as you don't bin the car that went wide or high, and the car that made the error and lost the line, needs to yield, allow the pass to happen then rejoin the racing line, and maybe get some slipstream. (draft) Thats called racing.  Whats not gonna wash with me, is when im on the racing line, and someone decides they can be faster if their half on the grass, and half on the kerb, and slam my car as they use me to get around the turn. Thats not rubbing, its not racing, and it will get that person put into the wall, over and over.  If someone can avoid hitting me, then I can avoid hitting them, and vice versa. This seems to be a grid problem, It rarely happened in forza 4, or even PGR 4,and NFS HP but then there were more people on those games who wanted to, and knew how to race.   i to have an issue with such a move, using the kerb, grass and my car to get around a corner. but try telling that to gianni morbidelli, i have seen him do just that in the superstars series, and guess what, no penalty of any kind! not setting a good example for us videogame drivers, and the crash-n-bash style used by many, but tolerated by none.

    delete the view blocking bar of the honda

    i too stick to bonnet cam on many of the vehicles, but props for keeping some of the key elements, such as the annoying bar that blocks our vision. its the realism that keeps me playing grid and grid autosport

    What is your favorite car?

    has to be the audi (cat B special). yeah it is missing some of the bells and whistles the real car has, and its in a class of 2 cars when in reality, manufacturers running against it are bmw, porsche, chevy, chrystler, and jaguar. but hey, never mind that, great class, and driving the grid "superstars" type vehicles is as intense as the real thing, with a similar balance of performance between the audi and mercedes
  23. in the meantime, i have reset my gamesave so ill take up any offer for driving, yes even with you nwr lads, just dont pull any stupid moves and expect me to move out of my way. if im commited to a lime, and you try to barge in, there will be contact, dont expect otherwise and dont wine if it happens. hopefully, by being open minded, we can try to go back to what most of you guys were- fast (or at least id hope) drivers looking for other fast drivers to race with, and less crash happy idiots to avoid
  24. judging by comments made by both parties, i would suggest NWR is out for blood. lose to many races buddy? or just pissed you didnt wreck him first? this is an eithics thread, and your comments are lacking exactly that. maybe carry a nice discussion. everyone makes mistakes, maybe you botched the line? maybe he did? we cant find out where your issues lie if your solution is to complain like a little girl
  25. maybe but my car didn't received the xp either do i don't know, i've found a bug sooo will codies give me the "bug splasher" badge? or better yet, add the bug to the "in need of repair" list so we dont have to worry about it. less bugs---> keeps the games fun!
