  1. Hi Codies, After you guys fixed this long standing bug in a patch in F1 2013 it seems to back for me (at least). I tried multiple tracks full weekend, 25% race distance, no evidence of the racing line rubbering in at all in any session.  I have a Sapphire ATI R2 290 graphics card and i5 processor. With this setup the track rubbers in fine in 2013. It was my favourite feature in '13 so it'll be sad if you can't fix it.

    Announcing F1 2015

    I really like the use a driver thing in career mode actually, especially if it means we finally get podiums etc. I think it will allow for a more broadcast style effect and hopefully a more immersive experience. Dodgy looking avatars of ourselves don't appeal to me.

    Announcing F1 2015

      is that your greatest concern seriously Members are allowed to ask their questions just the same as anyone else...Aren't they...? Chances are you would most likely be pleased should Codemasters include them - adds to the immersion don't you think? There're far more important priorities than fu***** formation laps or other stupid stuff some people are always asking for. For starters we still need to see If the thousand problems the old engine had simulating stuff like a complex F1 race have been sorted at long last. After that if the drving physcis are good; the mechanics behind tyre wear, mechanical damage, weather the old bugs here, there, etc. That^, and only that^, is what truly matters now. A game working flawlessly as a whole. If those problems didn't jump into this "new" engine, then you may start asking for the typical stupid fanatical stuff like formation laps and the always retarded safety car. But first, please, a game that works as intended. Seems that way, sucks :( @justbiglee Any chance you could answer this please? :kissing_closed_eyes:  At the moment no, as it currently stands on PC the engineer will give you updates as you race but you can't request them using any kind of voice control. As I'm sure you guys are aware its been a hot topic this afternoon and by far the most asked question.  As I'm sure you are all aware I'm no developer so I won't try and fob you off with an answer. I will do my best to get a technical answer on it from the studio for you tomorrow and I will obviously be passing your feedback on. All I can really say this evening is if you are a PC player and feel really strongly that this is a feature you want, be sure to speak up and I'll make sure you are heard. I'm a PC player (too) and I understand perfectly why voice command/chat coms with engineers may not be making It for the PC version, and why this will be only on ps4/xb1 through their respective ps4 camera and Kinect peripheral. Requests like these are indeed the kind of questions you should avoid directly, because they signal very clearly that some people is just stupid. The only things that should matter to PC gamers like me are: a) That the game is properly developed for this platform, and doesn't end up being some poorly optimized port with very high CPU usage (consolized PC port) b) List of supported wheels. c) No DRM. The question is..., will you at meet at least point a), Codemasters? It's not a stupid question at all. I've been using an external voice recognition program for years on the PC versions of this game to perform macros like select tyre type, fuel mix, brake bias, return to garage, all sorts of things I choose to program. Thus I would have thought this to be the easiest platform to integrate this into.  I think it's a big loss as it's clearly one of the big new features. It also worries me that the PC version is going to be an afterthought.  Thanks to the mod for answering the question forthrightly, however. It's refreshing.

    I guess from the lack of an answer to three of us, there is no voice interaction on PC.

    Announcing F1 2015

    I'm wondering this too, is it omission from the press release or the game? If it's the game it will be ironic as I've been using a program suggested by someone over on Racedepartment to use voice controls  in F1 2013 and F1 2014 (tyre choice, brake balance, fuel mix, etc) for ages. It's remarkably good and all you need is the software and a headset. Which makes me wonder why Kinect and the PS camera are necessary rather than just a headset on the consoles. Aren't they for non-verbal communication only? Given that the PS4 does not support my wheel (G27) or my triple monitor setup I have no choice but to stick with PC so I hope the PC isn't a crippled version of the game. I think Codemasters will find quite a big part of the community is now PC because of the lack of wheel support for things other than Thrustmaster on the consoles.  The game sounds and looks great apart from that BTW.

    F1 2015 Leaked (Confirmed)

    I wonder if we might see a Monaco release? In the past they used to time it with another glamour event, Singapore, so I can see it.

    2014 Max Settings

    I think on PC the graphics are if anything a step backwards.

    F1 2014 Tyre Glitch

    That's hilarious. How is that even possible?

    F1 2014 - PC - FPS Bug 2.0 ?

    It's very disappointing that the same old bugs make it every year. And with so little new content in this game you'd think they'd give it some time. But perhaps they are moving to an entirely new model next year and don't see the point in ironing out bugs from an old engine. Next year we will have a whole different set of bugs to look forward to at least!

    Patch confirmation?

    Sounds like there won't be a patch.

    AI pace in the wet?

    They need to change the AI wet pace. It's ridiculously hard to match with no assists on. I chucked TC out of desperation and that fixed the issue, but I hate driving with it. 
  12. Are you on PC? Enable V-sync if so. This is a known interaction bug between Logitech and the Codies games. I hate it, and personally have been known to completely reinstall the program as I hate playing with v-sync on. I've found that using a flashback triggers it for me, although fiddling with the override settings will also do it.

    Stop telling me that my tyres are cold!

    Yeah I'm on PC too.

    Stop telling me that my tyres are cold!

    Interesting that we are not all having this problem. I find it really annoying, at some tracks it's almost every lap. If I'm not getting enough heat into the rears then fair enough, but I fear it's a bug. I'm playing with a wheel, no assists, and I feel like I have plenty of wheel spin. Is it actually possible I'm being too gentle on the throttle?
  15. raggedrabbit

    Stop telling me that my tyres are cold!

    Yeah I'm getting this a lot too, seems odd given the amount of wheel spin.

    R & D

    Yeah that first R&D was tough, I just managed it on the third try. I guess unlike previous games it was nice you had to earn it. Not that you necessarily "earn" upgrades in real life. It would be more realistic if you did two back to back three lap runs with and without the new part and you got the choice whether to keep the part at the end of it.

    The legend AI are too fast!!!

    Given how easily people mod this game to provide an AI slider, I don't see why Codies can't come up with something adaptive. Have people do a race or something like the old YDT to gauge their capabilities and provide 3 levels around that pace. One slightly below their standard for people who like to dominate, one a perfect fit for their current ability and one that is a step harder for later use when they've got better at the game. 
  18. raggedrabbit

    I'm starting to really enjoy playing this game

    I'm wondering if the resources they saved by cutting out classics and the YDT have gone into making better AI as it's definitely their best AI yet IMO. This would make sense as the AI is something they'd be carrying over into next gen. They are so feisty and they also seem to have different traits. In a career race Alonso was a lot more patient about getting past me, trying to save fuel and nab me in the pitstops whereas Hamilton was all over the back of me constantly, very aggressive.

    [BUG] Hidden Assists

    I tried setting my override to pad and it was totally undriveable, so that's not a cheat.

    [BUG] Hidden Assists

    I am wondering if this explains my first experience of the game - do you still get wheelspin with this?

    F1 2014 PC: Track no longer rubbers in

    Weirdly I got rubbering in today in Bahrain during my career, whereas I had nothing yesterday at Australia. It's very odd. I think it might be a track by track thing? In F1 2013 Monaco and Monza didn't rubber in for anyone. I don't understand it otherwise. It's pretty distinctive in Bahrain if more gradual than last year. It's actually a big improvement because of this, but it's really strange that I'm getting erratic results for it.

    I'm falling between Legend and Expert at the moment. 
  23. raggedrabbit

    I'm starting to really enjoy playing this game

    Yes the AI are definitely an improvement and the handling on wheel is fun. Hope neither of these things is touched.

    F1 2014 PC: Track no longer rubbers in

    No marbles and no rubbering in at all for me.

    CAn F1 2015 be out by Australia?

    I don't think they are even doing the standing restarts, wasn't there talk of them being scrapped?
