    Official acquisition of Codemasters by EA

    ISI makes, or used to make, simulators. That's why the games were so good. And the EA that published those games isn't the same EA that publishes games today. Back then they didn't have Ultimate Team ruining every sports game
  2. 1. A detailed description of the issue. Please include any error codes here: In My Team and Driver Career modes switching the engine components (staying within the limits of 3 components) grants you a penalty as for art. 34.6 of the Sporting Regulations (Parc Ferme rule) if you get to Q2. I had two different cases: the first one in China, I was eliminated in Q1, after quali I switched to the component #2 of the ICE and didn't get any penalty. During the Dutch GP I made it to Q2, after quali I switched again to the component #2 of the ICE but the game notified me of the penalty for breaking Parc Ferme rule 2. What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen): 1.03 3. Game-mode? My Team and Driver Career 4. What are your replication numbers? Minimum test attempts are 4. Please also add EXACT replication steps for us to try too. 4. To replicate it just start a race in Driver Career or My Team, don't qualify for Q2 and try to change a component. Then in another race qualify for Q2 and then switch an engine component, the game will notify you of the grid penalty 5. What troubleshooting have you attempted? Please always try to attempt to fix the issue 6. What peripherals are you are using (gamepad, wheel make & model etc) Thrustmaster T500RS+T3PA Pro 7. Any screenshots or video of the issue? If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears. I'll try to upload a video tomorrow since the screenshots might not show the problem
  3. Good to know is still ignored...

    Grid Penalty for no reason (22 places?!?)

    This is the exact same problem I reported and that has allegedly been ignored. There's indeed the parc Ferme rule, but for unknown reasons it starts working only from Q2. If you get eliminated in Q1 you won't get any penalty. As soon as you get into Q2 parc ferme rule starts working and you get a penalty for switching engine components. Everything is here
  5. This is the video of me getting out of Q1 and switching engine components with no penalty https://streamable.com/c4xe7h Here instead I qualify for Q2, then don't make it to Q3, I switch the ICE and get a grid penalty for breaking parc ferme https://streamable.com/s4y3a3 @BarryBL if you can give a look at this. Just a couple of things. Don't mind the driving and the AI, I couldn't be bothered to increase it, it's just a test to prove the bug I'm reporting, and also don't mind me not even getting out on track during Q1 in the first video. For the sake of time I preferred to retire without doing a bad lap, but I can confirm it happens even if you get out on track and do your quali, so you're already in parc ferme rule. So if you should get a penalty for breaking parc ferme you should get it even if you get eliminated in Q1
  6. I don't know if it's the right section, but anyway. I bought the game and I share the library with a friend of mine, but he doesn't see the game, it's not in his library, while other games are (F1 2019 included). I logged into his PC to download the game, it appears in his library, but he can't play it because there's the button "Purchase" instead of play or the button to ask to borrow the game. I thought it was ok in the past few days considering it wasn't unlock so it wasn't supposed to appear in the library, but now this version is unlocked and he can't play. Did you disable the family sharing for this game? It's on Steam? The game will be available for sharing on July 10th?

    As sad in another topic I think it's still a great game, looks fantastic for a game from 2007 and the official graphics add more immersion to the game. The only bad thing is that AI is inconsistent, in Bahrain you can easily win on the hardest level of difficulty, but then in Australia and Malaysia they're like super fast, and again at Imola they're slow like in Bahrain, all of this with the same level of difficulty, the hardest.

    Dan Ticktum starts own F1 Team

    idk why but some people are convinced of the fact that adding more options for the players will spoil their fun. "I like it this way and I want everyone to enjoy it my way!!!!!"

    F1 2020 - Commentators

    You wanna know what's really funny? If you select the english language in F2 you get Davide Valsecchi commentating. Which is correct. Switch to the italian language, you will always find Valsecchi, ok. The funny thing is that he is dubbed by another person, the name is Davide Valsecchi, but it's not his voice 😂

    Dan Ticktum starts own F1 Team

    Stroll owns Racing Point (yeah, actually his father, I know, but it's the same) and races for Racing Point

    F1® 2020 | First Gameplay Trailer

    I'm playing F1 CE in these days. Super graphics considering it's a game that came out in 2007, the official F1 graphics that add a lot to the experience. Too bad the AI is inconsistent, sometimes too easy, sometimes too hard

    Thanks for the quick reply. Well, better than nothing I suppose

    Lee Mather Responds to Scanned Tracks

    At the 100m mark before the final chicane there's a huge bump, and it's not there irl. You don't even need to try it, just watch an hotlap, slow down the video and you'll see the suspension moving because there's a bump. I have to say it never bothered me until I raced on the laserscanned version on iRacing, which of course doesn't have it.

    Will the bump at Montreal be gone too?

    F1 2020 BETA - Process Closed

    Too bad that only Codemasters has the license to publish F1 games. There's one thing the "there are a lot of sims out there" guys don't understand, and it should be super easy. If we're here it's because we love F1, and unfortunately this is the only official game. This is why exclusive licensing sucks, back in the days we had THREE official F1 games at the same time from three different devs. If we could get the full F1 experience from a sim be sure a lot of us wouldn't be bothering with this game, but we're stuck with this

    F1® 2020 | First Gameplay Trailer

    After giving a look at the suzuka bump what about giving a look at the bump right before the braking zone approaching the final chicane at Montreal? At the 100m board there's a quite important bump which isn't there in real life. You can watch Vettel's onboard during Q3 and you'll see no bump there. I even checked a laser scanned version on iRacing and nothing, the bump isn't there. Of course it isn't, it's a true representation of the track. How in the world you're able to mess up big time with bumps that are non existent in real life? Do you even test the tracks?

    ERS Deployment - F1 2020

    ERS with micro management, switch ERS modes dozens of times in one lap--->people complain because it's not realistic (even Lando Norris did, and I think he knows a little bit more than us) ERS with no micro management which I guess has been adopted according to the drivers' feedback----> people complain because they want that back I say get your s**t together and think about what you really want

    Dude come on just read a few posts above ffs
  19. Nitpicking time: the one in iRacing IS NOT a Brawn GP. It's the 2009 Williams FW31 with a Brawn GP livery. I think the difference is obvious, but someone might think that the car in iRacing is the actual Brawn with a canned model and a bad sound
  20. eSports ready. Game is perfect and flawless, this has never happened before, lies that happens since F1 2017 at least

    F1® 2020 | Zandvoort Hotlap

    rF2 has rain since it came out in 2012/2013 😅 Also I'm quite sure the track had rain when it came out since I did some sessions with rain there. The old layouts are completed, it's showed as WIP because at the moment it's an alpha that will be updated every time the real track is updated. Due to the covid outbreak grandstands and infrastructures are still incomplete, and S397 will update the track every time they update it irl

    Codemasters a bit disconnected.

    You're right, if done right. But seeing that Codies has taken the mtx route I see that as a normal career mode with the chance to have a "custom" livery, so they will add even more paid content, which I think is the only thing they care about sadly. It's just an excuse to add more mtx. At least in MotoGP 20 we get to choose from existing sponsors, we can change the colors of the suit, gloves and shoes, we can really customize our helmet and our back logo
  23. I don't care of having laser scanned tracks in F1 games, I'd love them, but looking at the tracks now I'd be happy even with an accurate model from scratch. Reiza didn't scan most of their tracks, but they're extremely good, because they did their homework, they cared to give us a great track to race on. A laser scanned track is welcome, a good model should be a must in the first place. We still have Suzuka with a non existent bump at the last corner. It would probably take them a couple of minutes to fix it, They didn't, they just copy paste everything

    F1® 2020 | Announce Trailer

    Yeah, keep defending them fiercely, that makes you a good yes-man and a good puppet. Maybe one day you'll earn a medal or a game for free
