    Will it be a PS Vita Version of F1 2015?

    And 3DO, Virtua Boy, Sinclair ZX Spectrum, and Vectrex I think.

    Will it be a PS Vita Version of F1 2015?

    I'm don't have any inside info, but I'd say the chances are pretty close to 100% no.
  3. American PC league is racing at Canada tonight - seats available.  Check the first post!

    F1 community gone quiet

    The start of the Forum demise was when the Forums went down for several months because Codemasters let their Contract run out with no backup in place.  Things have never been the same since then, but a disappointing F1 2014 release, and basically the same game for 5 years in a row with little improvements in terms of the ones the community was asking for, obviously contributed a lot too.  Dev posts help spur conversation, but those are non existent these days.
  5. The European Xbox 360 League is racing tonight at 7:30pm GMT.  Sign up here!
  6. I have the same issue, what mod you have installed? All you need to do to fix it is lower your framerate, and V-Sync in the graphics menu will do that.

    What's Your Favourite F1 Game?

    Graphically, F1 2010 looked the most realistic.  F1 2011 and onward had colors that were too vibrant, and they subsequently looked a bit cartoony.  Hopefully that's remedied in F1 2015 with the new engine.  That said, we don't really care about the graphics if everything else is amazing.  Sadly, it's not.... In terms of handling/physics/setups/feedback, there's really very little to separate them.  They were all pretty much garbage, and calling them a simcade is probably overly generous.  F1 2014 with the turbos and higher torque mixed things up slightly by putting a bit more emphasis on throttle control at lower gears.  That gave it the potential to be the best, but the ridiculous disparity between gamepad and wheel, the hidden steering assist and always on TC for gamepad that was never patched made sure F1 2014 was the most flawed of all.... not to mention a bunch of features from F1 2013 had actually been removed, and not even replaced with anything else. How do we assess which one was the best?  Do we ask which one had the least bugs?  F1 2010 started with some bugs, and some of those same ones still persist in F1 2014 while lots others have been added along the way. When I think about each year's release, this is what comes to mind: F1 2010: This is amazing, even with a keyboard! (last racing game I played was Mario Kart 64 so I didn't have a good point of reference) F1 2011: Bugs, Sync Issues, Stupid AI, Unfair Penalties & added Safety Car F1 2012: Bugs, Sync Issues, Stupid AI, Unfair Penalties & removed tire wear scaling F1 2013: Bugs, Sync Issues, Stupid AI, Unfair Penalties & added tire wear scaling and classics F1 2014: Bugs, Sync Issues, Stupid AI, Unfair Penalties & wheel spin, new engine sounds and removed classics. F1 2015: New Engine & new Creative Director, so optimistic? Despite my negativity, racing the F1 201x games all have the potential to be a lot of fun in league racing, but they also have the potential to be so much better. Bottom line, listen to the fans, and posts like these, Britpoint, are a small step in the right direction.  Thanks
  8. Hope everyone had an amazing holiday!  We're back racing this week.  Check the first post for sign-up links if you're not already part of PRL! :)

    [xbox360] Anyone out there wish races were around 8pm gmt?

    We have an Xbox 360 league that races 7:30pm GMT on Mondays if that works for you?

    Patch confirmation?

    With Steve Hood gone, I guess there isn't anyone left to make a decision about a patch?  It is mind boggling that a company would leave a product in such a broken state (Wheel vs Gamepad), but I'm starting to realize that's exactly what they're going to do.  We're 2 months post release, and there's been no word of a patch.  In past releases, they've already released a dozen (PC) patches by this point, and have got the game in a workable state. Does no one at Codemasters realize that giving us no information at all is actually worse than telling us there will be no patch?  I feel they're just continually tarnishing their reputation with moves like this, and even an amazing F1 2015 might not be enough to get some F1 fans back on the Codemasters bandwagon.
  12. The European Xbox 360 Championship is officially starting!  January 5th will be the first race at Australia.  Races are 7pm GMT on Mondays.  You can sign up here!

    Lowbobs F1 Race League (PC)

    F1 2014 has been a bit underwhelming, and so starting a new league seems to be quite a struggle.  There are lots of already established ones to join which would be an easier option. 
  14. A couple more European Xbox 360 drivers and we can get to racing!  Sign up here!

    Patch confirmation?

    On PRL alone, we have over 100 people demanding a patch.....  I can tell you're not a league racer....
  16. The four division American PC Championship is tomorrow night and there will be some seats available.  Sign up now to race! :)

    Patch confirmation?

    PC had about 15 patches last year (or was it F1 2012?).  It's a bad sign that we haven't even had 1 yet.  Those multiple PC patches were bundled together to make just 1 or 2 for the consoles.  Whatever they're doing, they don't seem to be following that patch process they've used in previous years.  What's different?  That they have a game coming out ~6 months from now instead of ~1 year from now..... not a good sign.

    Patch confirmation?

    In my mind, it's not clear.  Sure, he's passing on information, but they can always say "no, it's not worth it for those issues".  In our mind, it's absolutely worth it, but they have resources to balance and F1 2015 to focus on.
  19. All active leagues now have one or two races under their belts, and they've been an incredible success so far!  Stewards haven't had to do any work yet either!  Thanks for the clean racing guys! Still looking for 360 drivers in Europe & Australia, and PC Drivers in Australia!  Check the first post for sign-up links!

    Patch confirmation?

    Can you at least confirm if there will be a patch?

    Question about online racing

    Equal cars on vs equal cars off, or assists allowed vs assists banned?

    Number in the steering wheel dashboard

    Unless you're doing a formation lap with a speed limit in a league :)

    Number in the steering wheel dashboard

    Massive problem with the new steering wheels - Codemasters don't display the speed on them as per the real work steering wheels.  Cockpit drivers don't know how fast they're going!
