    Haven't avoided the topic whatsoever. Already stated that we're aware of this request and discussing it. Won't make any false promises and there's so much more to topics like this than just if it can or can't be in the game, but rest assured, it's on the agenda 🙂

    Im sure you wont make false promises...never thought you would....but from experience with Codemasters, what you will likely do is this....

    Decide in your dev meetings that this functionality will not be added and then not advertise that fact to us.

    I can understand why.

    Its not pleasant to tell your customers they wont be getting a feature they have asked for.

    Im of the mind that because Codies decided to not include this functionality from the off, it will now never be..probably because too much of a re-write in your GUI back-end is required or somesuch.

    that is of course my own personal guess....but im afraid thats your MO.

    I would love to be wrong really i would...so ill be hangining around until your second patch...if lobbies are not in by then, it'll be too late for me.

    He matey.  :classic_biggrin:

    Saw in steam you owned the game.

    No use to go to multiplayer indeed, nothing for us to find there.

    But maybe we can get a big enough group of old gridders together some day to make a private server.

    I really have little hope codemasters wil fix anything based on previous experiences.

    Lo there Assie..hope all is well.

    Well apparently, theres a meeting at codies this morning according to our community team rep Chris Groves.

    Personally im hoping hell bat for us and push our gripes, of which there are a few.

    Im holding out hope for one thing only if im honest....the multiplayer lobby.

    That would fix the game for me.

    To think....I could choose for myself what online game to join...how quaint.


  3. Oh wow..I see some old faces here in codies forums, takes me back that does, to Racedriver Grid [2008] days...some of the best gaming days ive ever had.

    I guess im not the only one who would get home from work, say hi to the wife and disappear into the gaming room....suddenly its 3 in the am....and work starts in 4 hours!

    Ok, maybe i am the only one, but thats not my point.....Im certain im not the only one who really...really enjoyed that version of Grid.

    So I heard Grid 2019 was supposed to be a rehash/remake of Grid 2008...and on the surface of it, yes, that seems to be the case...a very pretty arcadey racer.

    I have to admit, I wasnt going to buy this game after the TOCA series [in my opinion] jumped the shark and started its decline with Grid 2...then GAS...but fate started messin with me and forced me to buy the game.

    Now i havent gone onto mulitplayer yet, so i havent seen with my own eyes, but i sincerely hope its either not true, or its going to be patch corrected....but no lobby?

    Seriously codemasters?...you went to all the trouble of puttin in hundereds of different AI driver styles....and decided a lobby was unneccessary?

    Im not a gambling man, but i would bet my aunties best china, theres a multitude of stuff in this 2019 grid we dont want or need......and just a few things that we would like, that are nowhere to be seen.

    Maybe this is the new sales model...the lobby will come out with the season 2 DLC, chat will be season 3, and the bonus season 4 we knew nothing about, will include Menu music muted by default.

    So, I have to agree with the race-ruining, reverse driver, Flash-stealth for one time only....A remake of Grid 2008...a plain and simple engine upgrade is a good idea.

    Buy you really think Codies will do that?......Aliens are more likely to land in your back garden and drop of Elvis Presley doode!


    • Thanks 1
    • Agree 1

  4. Hey Flowa doode, good to hear you're still about-ish.

    Yeah thats what i thought about the problem, just run without AI...like we had to LAST SUMMER!
    So theyve stopped supporting a game less than a year old?....guess they're back in the little leagues if thats true
    Its a shame it'll never get fixed but i guess that what codemasters have become...hardly masters of code huh!
    I wonder how long till they make it unplayable online ala grid1

    Maybe see you around then doode, although im spending a lot of time in warframe these days....brill game, brill support, brill envolvement with the devs.
    And free to play but not Pay-to-win.
    Just wish theyd purchase codemasters lol!!

  5. Was back on this game last night after 'some time away'...had fun...which i didnt expect...didnt see one eedjit driver all night..just had a particular AI problem.

    I hosted as much as possible, so i could keep it CAT C touring...had AI running to fill empty spots.
    In most of the races i hosted, some of the AI cars would just stay sat on the grid for the whole race and the end of race lobby would persist!
    Only way out was for me as host to quit so others would get xp [or maybe wait a long time for lobby to timeout]

    Joined a few other sessions...they didnt seem to have this problem and included AI.

    I saw this problem very occasionally way back when...is this a regular thing these days?
    Or am i missing something?

    Any help would be appreciated 8D

    I think it will be funny, if CM's mirror isnt better quality.  
    I believe this is 'our' one :)

    Looks like they've enabled the WIP one that we've got in the data files, kudos to them (could be wrong though!) :)

    I'm told it will arrive but don't have a firm update as of yet.

    erm....doode....its here already! lol.
    jus joshin...ill wait for the official one....jus hope its as good as you 'other' one thats already permeating your customerbase.

  7. Scuse me?....Youre off to play Team fortress?
    Shouldnt you be at work? 8P

    is that a clue or something.....are you guys planning a totally free an unannounced mini-game within grid?
    Because that would be quite a thing......my money would be on a 'cops and robbers mode' or some kinda team vs team thang with front mounted guns or somesuch

    but my smart money is on the next iteration of grid being researched....or the next dirt...For the love of  <insert your deity here> NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

  8. Why has the codemasters forum turned into a place where overage children argue about the most stupid things? I think CM need to be stricter
    hey doode..long time no see [in game]..ive been sucked back into warframe and pcars a little! [but thaks for the invites!]

    EDIT: soz, think i got my chargers mixed up...thought you were supercharger d'oh!

    In answer to your question, its my personal opinion that there are a large percentage of minors on here....who rightly so are immature...nothing wrong with that.

    But because they dont stand out in a forum [like they would in a street or a pub etc] it can be hard to grasp their train of thought sometimes.

    Dont know about you, but i wouldnt go out of my way to go chit-chat to some teen or pre-teen in real life about.....anything [relations apart of course].

    Lots of obvious reasons for this...and i for one think that a persons age should be presented in an obvious way on forums.....or other faceless encounter opportunities......just like in real life, when you encounter someone, you have a reasonable idea of their maturity and such.

    Of course there are [mature] trolls on here who should know better anyways....they are the real trash of forums and stick out a mile to me.
    I just blank em once im sure....my bad i guess, but ill beef hooked if im gonna spend my valuble on em 8D

    hope y'all enjoying grid xx

  9. @Loore....please ban him there...yes him...the turncoat-mcross type....he's attempting to lead me astray i tellsya.
    Hes already got me in this oxy mask, which is really starting to steam up now

    looks to me like your trying to tech the masses how to add a trainer now..id stop that if i were you....its not a good look.
    let's play now if you are not afraid
    Unfortunately I am working at the moment but I will gladly race you anytime I am free, I will enjoy it.
    yeah at the grind meself also....but would also glady race you when im online.
    But while your waiting, you could compare your speed against mine by doing the racenet challenges i have set.
    You could also see my ghost i have set, to see i amnot using those nasty lil cuts that the game still allows to achieve faster times.
    Send me a friend request in steam and illaccept.....this should make it easier for you to find me on racenet and so on.

    [bet he declines]

  11. Hey flowa...careful...dont you  know the world revolves around this guy....no one can be faster than him! 8D

    Seriously tho ishkhan.... charger is right in what he says.

    Weve seen this kind of post time and time again from folk who cannot understand how they cant be on the pace with the fast guys.

    the answer is always the same really....get in with a fast bunch and practice practice practice.

    or be doooomed to slows-ville.....foreverrrrr..

  12. How can they do that when we know most of the team are already working on the next title?
    Its funny tho, because yesterday i started writing a message to loore about an 'outside cut' exploit on one of the racenet tracks...spent about 20 minutes gettin the wording right, reviewing the track cut itself just to double check my info.

    Then i thought, wth are you doing....they aint gonna re-work the game now and fix this...they didnt fix it from grid 2...what makes you think this message will have any effect.

    so i deleted the message and went and did something less boring instead.

  13. @Goonertez‌ 
    got the Volvo to lvl 25, now I will get the beamer and start ranking that one up.
    The Volvo is soooo slow at start, but once in race it's actually quite ok.
    Did a few races on Pcars and Race07 yesterday as well, only to remind myself that the engine sound in GAS sux :D
    i havent a preference twixt the volvo and beemer yet...but i do like the beemer more on first impression.
    and yeah, engine sounds compared to pcars is....not great no 8D
    hope all is well pal. 8D

  14. Yeah was fun last night..well, until you slotted in the Audi ultras there 8D.
    I left as i was chomping at the bit to gain some exp in the E30 that i had just started using a few races earlier....keen to see how it is.
    I ended up in another server for a few races one of em at bathurst [yummy] and did quite well [now up to lvl 15 or so i think.

    see you over the weekend.
