    Classic car setups

    OK. A question from someone who has a better grasp of particle physics and string theory that creating setups......... Where do you start with setups for 'classic' cars....and the McLaren MP4 13 in particular?

    CM - please add violence

    Firstly - and most importantly - I want to make it plain that I do not condone violence (outside of a boxing ring or MMA cage that is) of any sort but - please CM - just add a little bit..........so the next time Jeff says, with that condescending attitude "We've had to spend time repairing damage to the car" that carries just the slightest of emphasis on 'time' and just the slightest hint of distain and disgust, I can climb out and punch his ******* lights out.
  4. steviejay69 I am guessing the label printer being designated as a DirectInput device is not normal? It is just a pnp Dymo but it is plugged into a port on a monitor stand that I use. Must be because of that. I'll look at disabling some of the audio devices but the Arctis is only 6 weeks old so the firmware will be current. I don't have MBAM. Thanks for your help with this.

    Can anyone explain please?

    Huh - he was a wuss.....and he wanted the ring for himself!!!

    Can anyone explain please?

    I have just finished my 3rd ever online race so, as you can imagine, there are lots of things I don't understand yet. Can anyone explain to me the following: Coming onto the main straight at Hungary a 'ghost' car passes me by driving straight through me. Two thirds the way down the straight, with me about two car lengths being him, he stops.....instantly. I have no time to react so I go straight into the back of him but, by now, he is solid and I destroy the front wing. What, technically, would cause this to happen?

    Unrealistic times

    First of all, please let me point out that this isn't a rant and, to be honest, I don't want people re-hashing old opinions so, if you don't mind (and please don't take offence) please don't respond. I only put this here as something so obvious, CM need to do something about it. I went to TT at Hungary to get a bit of practice on the track and there is a guy (who we are all familiar with) sitting on top of the leaderboard some 3.897 seconds faster than anyone else. Him being there or not won't effect my position - I am running a full race setup and my skill level is unlikely to get me into the top 1000 - so whether I am 1027 or 1028 on the list won't cause me to lose sleep....but him being there just isn't right. Please CM, remove him.....and please, fellow forum users, don't use this topic to re-ignite and re-cycle old posts. Thank you.

    Is there a way to get race updates on track?

    Isn't this just art imitating life? I remember not so long ago you used be sat in your car and; Me: Call Home Car: Opening sunroof. Me: No. Call HOME. Car: Changing channel to Radio 4. Me: NO. CALL HOME!!! Car: Seat heating on. 🙄

    Stupid Clare and Jeff comments

    A poor man's Lee McKenzie.
  10. Apologies. When @steviejay69 said; I thought it was a choice of either - not both. My mistake. Here is the file; DxDiag.txt

    Driver Number.

    I just thought it was a sneak preview of the new 'Original Le Mans start' option that had the added difficulty of having to reverse out onto the track..... I have also just realised that probably the vast majority of people on here won't even know what the original Le Mans start was. 😭
  12. @steviejay69 With reference to the issue quoted above, how do you know if the CM people have picked up on it? Do you get any kind of acknowledgement that it is being looked at?
  13. DirtyBob, I use the Fanatec McLaren GT3 wheel with the same wheel base and pedal set that you have, but on PC. The clutch paddles work OK for me so maybe it is a PS4 issue?

    gameplay changed with patchs?

    EGO Dumper crash report

    What happens to these reports? I get the EGO Dumper screen every time I load the game and the only way to progress is to send in the report.....but where does it go? I start up the game perhaps 2 or 3 times a day - 7 days a week - so I am sending 15 - 20 reports a week. Are they just sat in some virtual box on someone's in tray at CM? This isn't a dig at anyone as I appreciate how much work people are putting into fixing in-game bugs - I just wondered how the crash report system works.

    gameplay changed with patchs?

    You want to come down to my level of ability to see how easy it still is to lock up tyres and lose the rear on acceleration!!! 😳😳😳 Having said that, in my defence, this is my first season with Anti Lock Brakes turned off.

    Race start help

    Thanks for the help Marioho. I downloaded SIM Dashboard onto my phone and set it up to show my revs. Without you mentioning it I would never have realised such a programme existed! Now I can actually see the revs I'll have to revisit Barry at the Sim Racing Garage and see if I can finally master setting up the secondary levers on my GT3 wheel.

    Driver Number.

    Maybe it is because those of us who were juvenile enough to pick the number are now too embarrassed to admit it. 😳

    Race start help

    Sorry this has taken a little time..... a) The keyboard 'Print Screen' button won't work in the game plus taking a picture from Flashback is no good because the OSD isn't shown so I had to fins another way plus....b) my wife said if I didn't go and get my diner right NOW I would be wearing it!!! Anyway... Yes - I use cockpit view and here are shots of 'in game' and in Customisation mode.

    Race start help

    I have read that the optimum revs for starts is +/- 11500. I have a bit of a problem here as I cannot see revs displayed anywhere on my OSD. I have looked at the OSD Customisation page and yes, on the DIAL + MFD section it shows page 1 of the Voice Commands with, down at the bottom, 'Overtake' and 'ERS' percentage and below them 'MPH' and 'Revs'. When I go back "live", however, when I select Voice Command, at the bottom of the page I see 'Speak'. There is no Overtake or ERS and, more importantly, no MPH or Revs??? How do I get the revs displayed? I am on PC and use a Fanatec wheel.

    Weekly Event points breakdown

    After last week's event I stumbled across the breakdown of points I got. I jotted them down with the intention of comparing them (just out of interest) to this week and now I can't find the breakdown. It is possible that it is somewhere in the 'Message' that you get telling you your final position (by deduction because I can't find it anywhere else!) which I have managed to delete (I didn't realise the message would disappear as I accepted the trophy). Is it possible to retrieve the message?

    NM14 Error

    I tried twice to join Suzuka tonight and each time I got NM14 error. This has never happened to me before in my (admittedly comparatively short) online experience. I know my connection is OK (219 mbps download, 21 up) so I will put it down to bad luck and try again tomorrow. Anyone else had issues tonight?

    what exactly is the hack i'm looking at? @AceRiaz, I think this guy is Brazilian and I don't speak Portuguese but if you scroll down from the video you will see a comment where (I think) he is boasting that he is using a hack that lets him put his tyre grip to 130%. That is why he can go through almost all the corners at full throttle.

    Are all assists off in Esports?

    Sorry - you don't think that real F1 cars have mirrors???
  25. Thanks guys - just me being me 🙄🤪. All I need to find now is who put that F1 button there 'cos I knooooooow that it wasn't there before!!!
