  1. I'm still not good enough to create my own setups and be competitive (yet!) so I use ones I find on line. A question, though....... The majority of on-line setups seem to be for pads but would these work just as well for a wheel, or does the technical differences between the two types of controller's inputs make the setups not really transferable?

    The Worst Things Jeff Says to You

    Just happened to me last night; At the end of a wet Q2 in China, with less than a minute in which to try one last lap, he tells me to pit to change to inters.

    The 168 page manual from the original 1991 Grand Prix game (yes....I am that old!!!). I know cost cutting means that printed manuals don't come with games any more but they should be provided on line.

    More ways to earn PitCoins by playing?

    Yes - I think that would be a fairer solution.

    Ah.... Right...... Yes....

    OK - but where then do I find it? When I go to Customisation and select Car Liveries, all I see is the '70th Anniversary' livery, 'Cosmos' livery and the '+ Create New' option button. If I select '+Create New' the original default livery appears but nothing else. It is as though all the liveries from Season 1, the two liveries from Season 2 Tier 1 & 2 (I am only at Tier 3 at the moment) and the free Chrome livery have just gone missing.

    And now it gets really embarrassing. Because I have hardly used Podium Pass I am completely stumped by this. Let us say I wanted to claim the Tier 2 'End Racism' livery. How do I do that? Don't laugh.....I have stared at the screen for ages and the only live buttons I can see are F1 to buy the VIP Pass, F3 for Help and Esc to exit (plus the 4 directional arrows). Once highlighted, what button do I press to 'claim' the livery?

    I think it wouldn't be wise to link any kind of reward system to reaching certain levels of skill - that just creates an elitist environment. If CM were to pick up on this it should be based on the amount of time you play the game. I personally can put in a couple of hours a day.....but I am not going to be anywhere near the top end of any skill table for a long time yet.

    The only liveries I have are the original default, the 70th Anniversary and the one I use (Cosmos). I know that in the past I have deleted the CM livery but that is all. I know I claimed it but it isn't there.

    Thanks Gonira. Re 1, that is what I thought but when I go to liveries I am just showing the one I use now and the 70th Anniversary one. If I click 'New' I then get the original livery presented but no other option. Am I just looking in the wrong place? Re2, OK - that makes sense. I am in the middle of a race in Bahrain and Seb is in the top three and has just posted fastest lap. Not something I would have expected but if the car is still rated highly then I suppose that is acceptable. Thanks again.

    Transfer Offers and Teammate Selection

    I can't answer your first question, but in response to your second, the way the game works is that you will always join a new team as the #1 driver - hence you replacing Verstappen. Doesn't seem right to me and hopefully part of an upcoming patch will allow you to chose who you replace.

    Podium Pass Season 2

    Yes - you are probably right re the cost of the Pitcoins. The previous issue is what appears to be a corrupt savegame file in 2019. In that game I can do everything (on-line, Time Trial etc) except load My Career. I will put in another crash report but, to be honest, because the Devs are snowed under with 2020 issues, and the problem involves only one player, I have been lead to believe that there is virtually no chance of getting it looked at.

    Podium Pass Season 2

    Mmm....I forgot about that. I can't remember the rank - about 20 I think - but well in line to reach 29. I have 8500 so I think there might have been one more free payment of 2500. Does that sound about right? Maybe I should write to CM and ask for a discretionary payment? I know it was software on my computer that caused the crashes after 1.08 was released but obviously the patch wasn't released fully tested....and I know they can't test against every single eventuality but, nevertheless, it was a faulty patch that resulted in me not getting the opportunity to earn the Pitcoins.

    Podium Pass Season 2

    Having had the issue with not being able to load the game since 1.08 came out, I have obviously fallen behind on Podium Pass. Was it important to complete it or was it just a case of not getting access to the things on offer in the levels I have missed? BTW @PJTierney...... "We can't wait for you to see what's coming up!"..... Boy oh boy has someone dug a hole for themselves! It better be good.....real good!!!
  15. Watching the video and not seeing any hand/steering wheel movement is weird!!!

    Racing Rigs - Share Yours!

    It is a bug. Quite a few people have EGO Dumper screens when they start the game but have been able to carry on after clicking 'Send Report'. After 1.08 we get thrown back to the desktop after 'Send Report'. CM know about it as it is a live thread in the tech forum with more people reporting the issue as time goes on........however - I'll bear your offer in mind should the need arise

    Game Installed but wont run.

    Hi @energy88. There is a template that CM ask you to fill out when reporting a bug. I have cut and pasted it for you here; 1. A detailed description of the issue. 2. Platform 3. What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) 4. Game-mode? 5. What are your replication numbers? Minimum test attempts are 4. Please also add EXACT replication steps for us to try too. 6. What troubleshooting have you attempted? Please always try to attempt to fix the issue. Do you have the latest drivers? Have you check your connectivity settings? 7. Please provide a video recording of your game crashing so we can see where the issue occurs? 8. [ For PC ] – Please add a DXDiag to your post.

    No reason to be @Rango. Just a couple of days after I got it all set up, Patch 1.08 came out and crashed the game. Until CM come up with a fix for me it is just an expensive piece of floor art!!!
  19. Ok. I thought I would try something different. I noticed that in Steam - F1 2020 - Properties - Local Files there was the option to 'Move Install Folder'. As I showed above, I had 2019 installed on my C drive whilst 2020 was installed on my D and as @1512marcel commented, this doesn't make sense logically so I decided to move 2020 into the C drive Steam folder. Unfortunately my SSD C drive wasn't big enough so, in stead, I moved the Steam folder from C to D. So far, so good. Now I had all my Steam folders in the same place. Next thing was to try 2019, as this was the version I had moved. The game loaded without any issues. OK - now try 2020. No joy - Dumper screen. My question now, then, is that if both versions of the game are loading from the same folder on my D drive then the fact that one loads and the other crashes surely points to a software (Steam or Patch 1.08 ) issue with 2020?
  20. You may have a point here @LuringPoppy. When I went to validate my files, I had to wait as 1.08 was installing. After the installation finished, I did the validation and it was after this that the game died after the Dumper screen. I just assumed it was because of the validation but maybe not. Maybe it is 1.08? Any ideas @steviejay69?
  21. Yes, Steam is installed to C:, but there is also a smaller (40Gb) Steam folder on D:. In the D main folder there is steam.dll and a steamapps folder. I've loaded a screenshot of its contents. You will see that the 'Common' folder has a 'Date modified' of 13/07/2020. This is the date I installed 2020! Could this be the cause of the problem...that the game is spread over two different drives?
  22. What puzzles me is that before, apart from having to click on the quick launch button after the EGO page appeared, 2020 was working fine. It was only after validating the files on Steam that it died.
  23. Sorry @steviejay69, unplugged the Dymo, ran DDU and downloaded 446.14 but I still get the same result - EGO Dumper page.
  24. OK @steviejay69.......I really do appreciate all this help......but you have now started to speak in techno speak which has gone straight over my head 😊 Is the Dymo an issue? I can disconnect it and just plug it in when I need it. I don't understand what you mean by 'misdirected'? Can I / should I change anything or will the steps re driver fix it? I'll follow your suggestions re the driver and get back to you.........after I have had dinner (my wife is threatening physical violence if I let it go cold!!!) Again - thanks for your help.
  25. Thanks for the reply @steviejay69. I deleted the hardware_settings_config.xml file and tried to launch via Steam but it again brings up the crash page. Attached are the latest files. 678677-20200825-182935-0.zip DxDiag.txt
