    I can’t hide my frustration anymore

    Just give us VR, I can overlook some of the other rough edges if I can be IN the car.

    Thanks mate, custom helmet is next... just needed a break from design lately to do some driving! I'll upload the whole lot at RaceDepartment when I'm happy it's 'done'. 🙂 https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/f1-2020-idiots-guide-to-modding-for-my-team.188676/ https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/f1-2020-cars-3d-model-for-photoshop.188862/ https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/f1-2020-modding-questions-thread.186992/

    Lack of AI mistakes and crashes

    This is comment of the year. Working through My Team I spend a lot of time in practice and now you mention it I'm not sure you ever see crashes or mistakes. Yellow flags in quali would definitely mix things up, should be in there.

    About tyre pressures

    I've noticed quite a few setups I've downloaded have tyre pressures at minimum - which makes sense for time trial where you don't care about wear, but I've also used these in races to good effect. Based on what @marioho mentioned about real F1 teams also wanting to start at minimum tyre pressure, what possible reason could we have for wanting to do anything else? Is asymmetric pressure useful for heavily banked tracks (like ZandVoort)?

    Racing Rigs - Share Yours!

    I see that 3/4 empty bottle of Australian Shiraz on the table at 10:00am Valtteri, you ain't fooling us with your staged photos 🙂

    Formation lap on or off?

    Yeah, that's a disaster waiting to happen! What tyres are those? Unless they are hards I would think those temps are at least 4-6 degrees less than optimal.

    F1 2020 do you use an fps cap or not?

    @PJTierney @auzzyboy After much testing I’ve landed on a configuration that is providing me very smooth low latency frame delivery, but importantly has consistent frame pacing. In a nutshell it’s using the scan line option in Riva Tuner, which is superior to vsync (even fast sync) or simply using a frame cap but is a little more work to dial in (worth it). I’ll post a full how-to when I get home tonight, but for those of us without freesync/gsync monitors/TVs who don’t want the extra lag of V-sync, don’t want frame pacing issues and don’t want screen tearing this is an excellent option.
  11. Hey more power to you, people just have to do what is fun for them. I use no assists, sim damage, strict rules/corner cutting, flashbacks only for stupid AI, T-Cam (because no VR means cockpit view is way harder than real life), 100% distance <-- cos that is the real immersion for me, 90+ minutes of white knuckle concentration! I think flashbacks are fine so long as you have the self-discipline to not use them to correct for your own faults. I've been racing F1 sims since 1999, the VAST majority of which had absolutely no recourse for mistakes made. The solution people used back for game induced errors was to limit or turn off damage, but that has never sat well with me - open wheelers are by definition very fragile, and that should be part of the experience. By having flashbacks that allow you to correct race ending incidents that aren't your fault, and are arguably due to dumb AI, you can be much more comfortable I respect that, as above each to their own. In my case my time is limited but when I race I love racing 100% races, so to have that amount of time investment blown by AI being dumb really sucks the fun out of it for me. I'll happily take being whipped lap after lap by the AI (like I was in Bahrain), but not shunted on both sides into turn 1, not back markers that swerve into you, not AI that spins you, not AI that brake checks like Verstappen's grandmother. Those things I can live without. If CM can make AI so good that their errors feel completely authentic and every error I make I feel is on me... then I'll turn of flashbacks.

    The state of multiplayer

    That one seems like a game breaker. Would you recommend no one setting a time after the timer expires, even if they are on a hotlap?
  13. Yeah, cos the AI never takes you out lol. I know you have to tow the party line, but come on. Same as above, has the AI never done something so mind-bendingly unpredictable that you know it's a "game programming" thing and not a "random bad luck" thing? I've had two just today. 1) Qualifying in Belgium I caught an AI driver on an in lap and they moved off the racing line to let me past, then, as I was about to pass at high speed, they decided to swerve half a car width over and completely destroyed both of us. 2) Racing in Shanghai, I ran slightly wide getting onto the back straight and Ocon - who was not racing me for position - decided to stuff it up the inside and completely run me off the track, taking both our front wing end plates off, and would have ruined my race. On replay it was obviously super clumsy and pretty unrealistic. I would accept it if similar collisions happened between AI drivers, but they never do. In summary, I primarily use Flashbacks to account for AI stupidity.

    The state of multiplayer

    Is most of this only affecting spectators?

    The state of multiplayer

    @Bicarda That's all a bit disturbing. 😥 I'm about to participate in this league, haven't competed in an F1 league for a few years, when running it was both easier in some respects and way more difficult in others. If you had some tips for our host @TMACTM what would they be?

    Who said the AI don't make mistakes

    Unrealistic. Grosjean only crashes into other drivers.
  17. That would seem logical, particularly if Mercedes aren't doing anything outside the spirit of the regulations. If you take an idea like Dual Axis Steering it's pretty clear that if that is allowed to continue all teams will want it, and all will have to spend a considerable amount of money to incorporate it next year. It's not outrageous to just ban it for the good of the competition. On the other hand, engine maps are engine maps, they are an integral part of the sport - not sure banning certain engine maps is a great idea, but I guess we need to know more to be proper internet arm-chair critics 🙂 Having their cheating covered up has worked for them the for 70 years, why stop now?

    Weight re-distribution

    I've noticed as my driver ages the weight distribution get's closer to the floor of the car. Or at least I like to think so.

    Why does ERS die sometimes?

    This. Not this.

    Viewing the grid order

    Agreed, I wish you could do lots of things, like review all the lap data from the previous session, maybe do some telemetry analysis, set a program for the next session or race strategy if that's whats next. As it stands I can check my messages - which are always completely pointless - and change some assist or game settings, all of which could well be done from the pit garage or the grid. Worse is the pointless load into the motor home before that menu. Not only is it literally exactly the same from race to race (same people, same faces, same folders, same computers, same displays, same pens - all in exactly the same place), but even when you look outside the window it's exactly same whether you're supposed to be deep in the rainy Ardennes Forest of Belgium, or sweltering in the blistering sand dunes of Bahrain. Same scenery, same weather conditions, same red sedan parked in the same spot.

    Who said the AI don't make mistakes

    That was actually the AI trying to take the invisible shortcut they use at the end of qualifying to suddenly drop their times... but they realised the camera was on them at the last minute and faked a crash 😂
  22. Is it just me or is the Keep Fighting Foundation just a front for MS advertising? Honestly, I just spent 20 minutes at the site and can't for the life of me see what they are achieving (apart from promoting MS memorabilia). Their activities, and I kid you not this is all of them in at least 3 years (no information on when they founded): Schumacher Offical App (virtual museum). Schumacher exhibition at Ferrari Museum (3 Jan to end April 2019) Promoting Automobilist limited edition artwork and posters (proceeds to Keep Fighting Foundation) Starbox, a limited edition of 91 copies of 7 photos of Schumacher (proceeds to Keep Fighting Foundation) Champions for Charity (ahem... which charity?) football match which raised money and auctioned of memoriabilia.... and you guess it, the entire proceeds went to Keep Fighting Foundation and Dirk Nowitzki Foundation (NBA player). The later is an organisation that actually does something for people, awarding grants for organisations that help children's wellbeing, health and education. Keep Fighting Award. The first thing the foundation did, awarded once in 2017. Does not appear to have provided the winner with any benefits. Has been promptly forgotten about and never awarded again since. Seriously, I have nothing against donating to Michael Schumacher and his family if that's your thing, but just be aware that the Keep Fighting Foundation appears to be completely self-serving. This is not a charity - despite claiming on Facebook to be a charitable organisation, they do not appear to be helping anyone (other than themselves), they don't appear particularly active (other than self promotion), their only partners are two large corporations AFP (huge media outlet) and Deutsche Vermögensberatung (a huge financial institution), the later having existing sponsorship obligations to MS that continued after his skiing accident. Clearly the partnership with F1 2020 the game is logical, Codemaster's get to use Schumacher's image all over their game and the Schumacher family get's a cut. My only issue with that is dressing it up as a 'charitable' foundation - which from my research it does not appear to be. I cannot see a single example in over three years where the foundation has expended funds on something that wasn't simply more promotion of the Schumacher brand. Happy (hoping) to be proven wrong.

    1.07 patch - is this legit?

    So.... 1.07 IS legit... Steam just updated. Any patch notes?

    F1 2020 do you use an fps cap or not?

    That's not entirely true. Extra frames with Vysnc off will make the game look and feel more responsive, even if the total frames exceed the display hz. It's not a placebo, there is actual science behind it 🙂 Your mileage may vary with respect to screen tearing, I personally don't get it too bad on my Samsung TV, but given the TV is adds 21ms of latency in game-mode already (which is pretty good tbh) I'm happy to reduce any additional latency from 16.7ms to (ie: 5-7ms) by seeking higher frame rates. This is worth a watch in it's entirety, but I have timestamped to the most relevant bit: Yeah, I think I'm going to cap at 120fps with RivaTuner or Nvidia, just to eliminate the variation of frame rate (I get >120fps during game play). I also need to better understand NVidia's Fast Sync, and Low Latency Modes. A quick check shows fast sync doesn't work for DX12 titles, so I'm going to do some back to back with DX12 with normal Vsync and DX11 with normal and fast Vsync.

    F1 2020 do you use an fps cap or not?

    I play on a 4k 60hz HDR TV but at 1440p resolution with uncapped frame rate - typically sits about 130-180fps (overclocked 1080Ti). That feels the smoothest for me, much better than capping at 60, and I honestly can't see the frame tearing even when I'm looking for it. I haven't tried capping with the NVidia software but I have tried with RivaTuner which is better than the in game cap for sure.
