  1. I agree yesterday was the first time I actually rage quit a game because I couldn't work the bloody menus. Having no mouse support on a PC game just shows that this is a plain console port without much consideration for the PC platform it is actually sold on IMO.

    The game itself is great though, but for the love of god codemasters, please implement this basic feature and make your PC users happy.

  2. Here's what i have come up with so far:

    - Fix the non existent FFB
    - Make wheel animation + 180 degrees
    - Incar seat adjustment (view)
    - Ability to adjust degrees of rotation ingame (now we have to exit game and do it in the wheel profiler each time).
    - An option for pace note frequency (minimal talking for example).

  3. First of all i'd like to see different threads in a feedback 'section' so there is a bit more structure to it all. This 1 thread alone will become a mess of hundreds of pages with people wishing for cars (wishlist like) aside from features and options. Wouldn't it be better if for example you make a separate wishlist thread for cars and keep this one only for feedback regarding gameplay and features? 

    Just my 2 cents.

  4. Congratulations codies, dropping a bomb like that and getting us all excited. It is indeed what most rally fans wanted; going back to the Colin Mcrae days and getting rid of that Gymkhana dudebro crap + focusing on realism and classic rally racing with long atmospheric stages. The future addition of rallycross is also a great idea! 

    This could be the PCARS of rally racing; build on community feedback. Time was right to release it now as we are starved of decent rally games and the early access idea is a clever one too.

    Homerun IMO!

    Go to steam community and read the reviews on this game they mostly go like this:

    The driving is awful. The cars wallow all over the place, the grip modeling is bizzarre, you have to brake at sim-like distances, though the AI does not--and meanwhile the AI's only goal is, seemingly, to wreck you at every opportunity, or at least shove you off the track or into the nearest barrier. They will honest-to-god plow into you at the startline if they can. It's like multiplayer with twelve-year-olds.

    The cockpit cam is pathetic. It's worse than the Grid 2 mod.

    No team of your own, no personal livery, no stable full of cars--just mercenarily jumping from sponsor to sponsor and racing whatever they have for you.

    The only reason I'd give this anything but a zero on a 0-10 scale is that it looks very nice, all things considered, and has a pretty interesting car list--that I will never fully get to experience because of the godawful nature of the basic game. It's a two at best.

    If you want an arcade racer, pick up the first game, or grab any of the NFS games. If you want a sim, Assetto Corsa is the answer. Reading through some of these other reviews, I'm boggled by the low standards and mean value to which people hold their entertainment dollar these days.

    The guy that wrote this doesn't know what he is talking about. Physics are nice, racing is nice game is top notch and addictive. I guess he just tried the game with the AI on medium level also, on medium they are slow and annoying (AKA in the way), whilst if you bump it up to hard they are fast and don't hit you all the time neither.

    That's why i suspect that the AI in the racenet challenges sucks so much, it's either programmed in easy or hard so all they do is annoy the people that know the difference between a gas and brake pedal.

    Please codies,  turn the AI speed up to hard or get rid of them for time trials.

  6. @Loore can the leaderboards that are displayed ingame for time trial mode, be altered from showing your PSN friends to racenet friends/ club members?

    Only a couple of my PSN friends have the game, whilst i'm in a club that contains 65 members and i have 20 or so racenet buddies that all have GAS. So it's pretty useless that your TT times are compared to your PSN friends instead of the latter.

  7. to be fair, there were lots of improvements between GRID --> GRID 2 --> GRID Autosport. not talknig only about graphics but also in gameplay and small details in the game. In GRID 1, for example, you were not able to tune your car at all. in GRID 2, you had upgrades. Now you have Tuning plus Upgrades.

    hopefully, the next GRID will have even more improvements and hopefully more FREE DLCs or at least more racing types as default. I really loved Tougue/Sprint races in GRID 1 and 2 and it was a shame that you have to pay for it now
    yes you can tune and upgrade but they DONT WORK, so it is a waste of "leakey memory"
    Tuning works no? It's just the upgrades that don't seem to make much difference.

  8. hit the brakes at the start and let the AI get 3/4 of a lap a head and then its free sailing . One bad lap and two good laps are better then three bad laps
    That's a workaround although they are still THAT slow that for sure you encounter other mobile chicanes in the remainder of your laps. But we shouldn't have to do that really if they would just scale up the AI's level to hard it would be fine and it would take time to catch a bot that's ahead of you + he wouldn't be parking mid corner all the time...

  9. At the dev. team; can the level of the AI bots please be upgraded to hard for the racenet challenges? You have a 3 lap run to set a time in the racenet challenges and all too often your lap is destroyed because there is a bot slowly going through the apex of  a corner. Also in the races it's just about trying to pass the first lap carnage as best as you can and get through to P1 in the first lap as to set a decent time. I suppose the AI is set to the medium difficulty but this is way to slow and they 1: serve as mobile chicanes during time trials to the frustration of players trying to get a decent lap in, and 2: also in races which make them not really feel like a proper race because with a minimum of driving skill you pass the whole field on lap 1.

    Please let me (and the dev team) know if you guys find this a good idea (as i guess the majority of you will feel the same here).

    Fixing the "broken game" problem should have been first priority!!!
    Another dev full of themselves!!!!!!!

    And I can't get over them trying to sell us DLC at the same time. Just WOW!!!!!!!!

    I'm sure it is priority 1.

    Fixing these issues takes time and i'm sure they are all working hard to get it fixed. They should however greatly improve their Q & A before releasing a game, i think this is something we can all agree on as there are just too many bugs in the release version.

  11. Sorry to hear this guys, if you email custserv@codemasters.com with your details (PSN ID, what country you are in etc) they should be able to help.

    Hi thanks for the reply, already in contact with them and already re installed everything by now (including the game which is digital), but nothing works and although the DLC is downloaded and installed it's always missing from the game. Quite shitty as i bought a seasonal pass immediatly, should have tried one pack first... Hope i will be refunded the 30 bucks as a seasonal pass for acquiring DLC that does not appear ingame is pretty useless.

    A shame this is still not patched, I moved to the X1 a couple of weeks ago so haven't thought much about this, frankly this length of time is a little ludicrous Codies you must make sure to spot these kind if bugs, I know they slip through the net occasionally but 2 games in a row in the same engine is pretty disastrous.....

    I imagine the online for GAS is now dead which us a real shame as it was stupidly addictive when it released, hopefully you guys can now learn and move forward from this :) I'm still looking forward to next gen F1 and will maybe pop back in GAS when thus is FINALLY fixed....

    they were not 2 games there were
    f1 2010
    dirt showdown
    grid autosport

    f1 2012 + f1 2013 i dont know

    day 43

    Day 43 and counting...

    I guess identifying all the problems, having them fixed and getting the patch submitted takes time. I handle system errors for my company also, and from the point an issue is raised to us, investigated so the problem is known and fixed in production so the client doesn't have it anymore, it also takes weeks and in some cases even months for just one technical issue (although that shouldn't happen but the world is not perfect).

    The game will be perfectly playable afterwards, and i don't want to miss out on that experience. I do agree however that Codemasters should get their pre release testing in check, and don't screw up with another buggy game in the future, as they've had one too many of these so i hear.

  13. I'd like to know if anyone else had this problem.

    Bought a season pass in the PS store, after that was installed i downloaded both the best of british pack and the coupé pack. When i check with "recently downloaded", the DLC packs are showing, but when i go in the game the cars do not show.

    I checked in custom cup and in the online dealership and the cars don't appear anywhere. Also when i select the playstation store button on the main menu, it checks and then says "nothing available", whilst i've seen screenshots of others that had their packs displayed there.

    Any advise of help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

  14. I don't know why as this hasn't been mentioned yet, but the pack does not appear in game with me even if i downloaded and installed it from the PS store. Bought it through the EU store with a season pass by the way. Anyone else had this issue of DLC not appearing in game?

    I am on ps3 and downloaded the coup pack content freely as I am a season pass holder, but still the garage slots content is still not available.

    Good news about the Coupe pack, can anyone else confirm the garage slots not downloading if you're a PS3 Season pass owner?

    If you could let me know if you are part of the Europe or North American store that will help greatly.

    We just bought the season pass (EU), and downloaded the coupé pack but the cars are not available in custom cup? I can't seem to find them anywhere.

    Edit: same with the Best of British pack, downloaded and installed it but i cannot find the content anywhere ingame.

    I agree with what users Cheesenium and TheKazzyMac have already said.

    My personal suggestion would be improving the AI in a way they don't all end up crashing into each other in the first corner. It's particularly bad and infuriating when starting in the middle of the pack or from last position - mainly in the Street and Endurance category. 

    At times, I've spent more time restarting the races over and over again because the AI kept destroying my car or caused a huge unavoidbale pile-up in front of me than actually racing.

    Yup only the first corner carnage needs some work, other than that the AI is of the best i've seen in a racing game, on the pace and exploiting your errors just like human players would do.

    Build on this model codies, you've almost hit the sweet spot. In fact; build on this very same game and formula and i will be looking forward to a similar title on next gen.

    For affected people, read this:

    "It's possible to by pass this savefile corruption by selling the cars which have an insane value, for example: if your Peugeot 408 SCB costed 150,000$ when you bought it and now somehow it sells for 4,000,000$, imediatly sell it.

    Another suggestion is:

    1. Avoid upgrading and tuning your cars during a lobby, do that ONLY in your garage.
    2. If you play racenet challenges, avoid using your own car during an event, it can corrupt your savefile so just use the loan car.
    I managed to get an old backup before my savefile corruption, I followed this exact steps and now have been playing for over 2 weeks without any issue."

    I've done this from the beginning and still, have already 4 corrupt files on PS3.

    I don't understand as most people say this is the trick and afterwards it worked fine. You sure you did everything as stated above, and can you explain when your save corrupts again afterwards?

    I understand you all impainet for news but I think codemasters hands are tied until Sony and Microsoft says its ok to release the patch. 

    Judging by this LONG standing issue with corrupt saves I'm starting to think their hands were actually physically tied when coding this game...typing with their noses and wearing blindfolds.

    This is absolutely inexcusable.  To all the codies taking offense to people on these forums trashing on you I say:  you should be offended.  It should make you downright upset that your company allowed a sub-par product to leave the development office.  You need to realise that all of these people who are trashing you are your customers--the single reason you still have jobs.  We have been here supporting your inferior product under the hopes that you might actually change.  Judging by the clear lack of response to concerns, and responses that are finally made being VAGUE PR SPEACH I can see that isn't gonna happen.

    Hold your horses, the world isn't coming to an end yet. I know it's shitty waiting for this patch and especially shitty if it happens to you and you didn't make a backup on USB. GAS stays a great game though and i am perfectly willing to avoid my online cars for the time being seeing that is what seems to cause these save corrupts. I've also read some useful tips in this thread of what to do if it happens (sell the bugged online cars),and people seemed to be able to play without the issue occuring again.
