    Anyone else despise Monaco?

    I have almost never had bad races with a wheel (370° rotation) in Monaco in leagues. I believe I am really good at it but hate it with a passion. As difficult to drive they are and as much as a driver can make a difference, to me those 3.3km are no race track. A racetrack should always provide the necessary room for overtaking opportunities and battles, wether you drive a 1m wide kart or 2m wide, high downforce F1 car. Anything else is just not suited for racing cars, no matter if it is as "glamorous" as they say. You just end up with a grand prix weekend where qualifying is a lot more exciting than the actual main event, in which they only follow each other in a train formation, hoping for a lucky safety car situation or a mistake from an opponent. I just do not see the joy in watching something like that, let alone driving at it.

    Scuderia Ferrari MISSION WINNOW Livery!!!!

    To be honest I would rather have their games be rated 16/18+ than have a so called "Ferrari" as a blank red car. I am 110% for authenticity of sports games. Kids are going to get the game anyway if they want it, wether they buy it themselves or receive it from parents. Most of them do not even get what the logos represent. Even if they really do not want to raise their rating, they should at least allow texture modifications for online.

    Is multiplayer broken? 1.05

    I also have the feeling that the TT performance of the game is far superior to online one-shot and 5 lap races. I was driving the Mercedes with a setup and managed a 27.3 (1s faster than pre-patch) but when I used the same setup on a one-shot quali with 5L race the renault I was driving felt absolutely horrible. No grip on the rear tyres at all. It was so bad that I first thought the lobby was set to realistic performance. Barely managed a 28.5 in one-shot. I know the 2019 cars, even if set on equal, have slightly different performance but this was extreme. Don't get me wrong, it is not wrong for TT to have better performance than the rest but online felt like it was stuck with the pre 1.05 perfromance.

    Well my idea would be to have a team to look at highly reported accounts and the footage that come with the reports. However, because they protect their identities, it would have to be private/anonymous reports that are sent directly to the team, not through the forum. It would be much easier if there were saveable replays so you could do the reports privately with 100% legit footage directly in the game and not here but we are unfortunately stuck with the "highlights" feature that shows anything but the highlights of the races, barely any slow motion shots either. If enough reports are made and a CM team member takes a look at an accounts cases + the footage that come with it then he/she can then decide wether to apply the week ban or not. However, I guess CM does not have the time and will to do this, seeing that with the performance patch 1.05 two tracks were apparently forgotten to edit. SMH

    I said it before and I will keep saying it every year: This game series needs a ban hammer for players like this. It is far from an uncommon issue and has existed since around 2012 in the online department of Codemasters' games in general, not just F1, which ruins the experience of players who just want to have some short-term fun. Not everyone has a specific time of the week or time in general available for leagues. For those "casual" online players MP is a massive turn-off when things like in the video above happen. It does not have to be a permanent ban though, only temporary one week bans if a specific amount of reports are made. It should be enough to discourage this behavior. Unfortunately, unless it is an ingame, anonymous report feature, Codemasters will protect these guys' "identities" in this forum, therefore allowing this kind of behavior. The penalty system is a mess, punishing the wrong players severely for the smallest things. For example: I was in a public lobby starting from P4 in Silverstone ( 5L race ) and I was rearended and pushed off of turn one as expected. When I (very) slowly rejoined the track after being offtrack for a couple of seconds the game gave me a 10s penalty for "track extention", while the guy who hit me had only received a warning. Insane. The safety rating system does not work. It does not mean much anyway as you can simply search for small ranked lobbies with maybe 5 players. Avoid the carnage at the starts and there you go. After a couple of races you have at least a B rating. What this kind of players break the most about the game is the competition points, which were designed to keep the player in the game or MP specifically as long as possible. Every time something like in the video above happens to someone, they lose potential CP and therefore cannot unlock more ingame content, which frustrates the player even more and will eventually cause him/her to drop MP and its content entirely. It becomes a waste of time and effort. Codemasters really need to start to take action against this stupidity to allow players to enjoy racing against the more competent opponents.

    Codemasters is just taking the Mickey now!

    Codemasters rebranding a feature with additional options without actually thinking it through?! I am schocked, this has NEVER happened before! *kappa*

    It is a good idea. It does not matter which pitbox you as you travel the same distance at the same speed anyway. However, imagine the leader pitting with 5 drivers directly behind him, if he gets into the first box then he will definitely be blocked in it until all 5 pass. So first one to come in should always get the last box first to prevent that at the entry. Another idea for league mode would be to let an admin edit the team pairs and have the game indicate when the member boxes.

    The reason why ranked is dead is because damage is on in 5 lap races. I kept mentioning this to my friends since 2015 that I never understood why it is on in such short race distances in the first place. Having a good result when you are taken out by children with controllers / keyboards who think this is mario kart or simply rammers or even low connection players in the first turn is impossible in 5 lap races. So why should anyone bother with ranked? I personally find more players in 25% ranked lobbies simply because there you can at least have some chance with good skill of fighting your way back after being almost a lap down because of an early pitstop. For example: Today I had a player infront of me during an unranked 5 lap race in Silverstone. He was the only one lagging so bad that he was jumping from one side to the other almost every half a second, making passing him impossible without contact and the system inevitably giving me a time penalty in the end. So I stayed behind and let others coming from behind me pass to have a go themselves. Guess what happened... Now imagine that being a ranked lobby. Why should you bother with such players at all if all they gain from that is an unfair penalty and deduction of safety rating etc.? Why is there no max. allowed ping before he gets perma-ghosted in a lobby anyway?
  10. Hey guys I wanted to share with you top 10 features that we need in F1 2019 through the following video! https://youtu.be/UfOj1KTmzPU If you have suggestions and want to add your ideas for F1 2019 as well then please post them as comments here and/or on the video. I am really interested to see what you want to see in the next game and I might make another top 10 with your ideas!

    Manual start buggy?

    I was doing some ranked online yesterday and had the same problem at every start ruining my races as well as score. My Clutch and Throttle are mapped on the same Upshift button on my Logitech G29 wheel and when I press and hold the shift up button the car does not go into 1st gear automatically like in F1 2018. It does however indicate to me that the clutch is being held. Even letting the clutch go earlier than lights off, without 1st gear engaged, gave me a drive through for jump starting once. It is really weird, I will compare my settings to F1 2018 to see if I changed something incorrectly, but if nothing is different then this is either a bug or I do not understand the starting procedure. Cars in IRL usually let you select 1st gear even without reving the engine higher. @Acerees
  12. Like with the rest of the cars, the engine sounds generally realistic, however, way less powerful. It sounds like it is 500-1000 rpm short. They also need to make the rising of the engine sound with the rpm and shifts faster, because as it currently is in the F1 2019 game, the engine sounds like it it was shifted to early with every shift.
  13. The general sound of the engines are very good. My issue with them is that they are way too low pitch in higher RPM's. I keep shifting too late because I am used to 2018 and its way high pitch engine sounds. It might just be a thing that I need to get used to but right now it is really off-putting. A little bit highe pitch on high RPM would do the trick for me.
  14. In case you are wondering why your recorded gameplay stutters every second, your GPU might not support DX12. You can run the game without problems on DX12 even if your GPU does not support it but once you capture footage, it will stutter heavily. Here are some example videos: This is how your recording of F1 2019 (DX12) will look like with an unsupported/outdated GPU: And this is how your recording of F1 2019 (DX11) will look like with a supported GPU: The GPU I was using in these videos is the Nvidia GTX 780. It does not support DX12, only DX11. Although the recording of DX11 still is not 100% fluid, it is still far better than DX12. In the links below you can check whether your Nvidia/AMD GPU supports DX12 or not: https://www.argoncomputing.co.uk/directx-12-nvidia-supported-cards https://www.gamespot.com/forums/pc-mac-linux-society-1000004/amd-releases-list-of-compatible-directx-12-gpus-ap-32058329/ If your GPU is not supported and you want to record your gameplay then try using DX11.

    performance problem

    high CPU usage? I cannot see any way your internet connection can affect your FPS in an application.

    F1 2019 A disaster.

    Never believe the press reviews. They unfortunately lost their integrity as not few can easily be bought. Now I am not accusing CM of buying reviews but I generally like to experience the game for myself before I judge it.

    Is day one patch on June 25 or June 28?

    I believe it will be the 28th as the those who can play from the 25th must have the Legends Edition which comes with an "Early Access" code. Early Access means the game is not in its final release state.

    F1 2019 Legends Edtion 3 Days Early Access

    Welcome to the 21st century old man, the future is now.

    F1 2019 A disaster.

    1) If you want to play a racing sim, a true racing sim, then iracing is the way to go if you have the financial means to play it. Codemasters' F1 game series has never been an actual sim even if they advertise it. If you have been here for a bit longer than 2 years then you should have already known that by now. It is a balance between competitive and casual playstyle. They try to deliver the closest handling that they can, however, it is not always perfect. When was a game ever perfect? There are always going to be some who like the handling and some who don't. Wether it is realistic or not is, if anyone, up to Lando Norris to decide and not Rosberg. He is a gamer and a current F1 driver for McLaren. Nico has not been in an F1 car of the current regulations at all, so unless he had a private drive session with Mercedes or some other team I wonder how he would know. Take my advice: Stop expecting realism in terms of handling from Codemasters' F1 games. A game can never be as realistic as a real car it can only be as close as it can, period. 2) I agree with you that the Legends Edition could have used some recreations of events of the past and not just some altered challenges that already existed in the game before. The content from that edition is poor but for "only" 10€ more what do you expect? Classic tracks would be nice but I don't think they will add them in the near future if they already struggle to recreate the new pit-entry/exit of the french gp with the resources they have. 3) Regarding drivers from one team driving cars from another: Why should contract and PR restricitons be a thing in a videogame? Should a game not be about doing what you, the player, wants to do? If someone wants to name himself Mick Schumacher and driver a McLaren classic then why should he not? I see no harm in that in a game. That is what it is for. 4) Formula 2 is something that many people wanted. Although I would have enjoyed a whole integrated career season(s), we should be thankful that we have the whole grid and cars for both career, solo and online. It is not a major addition for the F1 career but it is not a waste of time. It introduces your rivals who will follow you through your career. It gives the whole thing a bit of life and emotions which in my opinion was lacking in the previous titles. 5) The graphics improve from year to year. Compare this game with F1 2015, which at that time was a great improvement to 2014 and its older engine, and you will see how far it has come. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder though, so even though to you they look "okayish", to me they look solid. To conclude all this: I think that you have things on your mind that would only harm the game more than it would help. That "realism" you look for only restricts the players who ultimately want the freedom to do what they want. The handling will never be realistic, but if you want handling that comes very close to real cars then I suggest you to play iracing.

    "Fish eye" distortion filters do not make objects proportionally larger or smaller, They simply, as the name says, distort the image. Here is how it looks like with a small bit of "Fish eye" effect, tyre still too large though:
  21. Because they are still not EQUAL even if you could set it with the official team car models. They all have different wheelbase lengths. This makes some more agile through monaco than others like ferrari which drives like a bus.

    F1 2019 Legends Edtion 3 Days Early Access

    I agree that it is very unfair to the people who paid additional money for the legeneds edition. It is advertised with 4 additional calassic cars, some challenges and early access which seems to have a relative meaning. I mainly bought the legends edition so I can create video content on my YouTube channel as early as possible but seeing that aarav, ben and JD already prerecorded and uploaded 3 parts of career mode and others already live streaming on twitch makes me really feel like I was spat in the face by CM. Totally not cool. Next time I will think twice before giving them more money for "early access". I understand that they want to create hype for the games release but there should be a limit as to how much content they are allowed to upload before the 25th of June. They have done it for F1 2018 after all, so why not again for a game that was paid for for early access by many players? This is no hate against the game itself or aarav, ben and the others who can luckily already play it. They just use the opportunity that was gifted to them. I just want to point out the unfair and clumsy treatment of distribution of CM's F1 game, which has been going on for a couple of years now. Anyway, the world won't end because of this so I really look forward to the 25th to finally play this game for the first time and start making videos for those who care and enjoy. 👍
  23. You can use the liveries from the F1 teams but I believe you can also use the normal models as well but only when you drive with realistic performance. Equal performance will always be the MPC.

    This is what I noticed too when I saw the first gameplay with the Renault in Bahrain. The tyres are way too large at the front making them look out of place. This exact same issue was in F1 2017 as well before they fixed it for 2018 so don't expect it to be fixed through patches but a whole new game.
