  1. 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.

    1.07 patch - is this legit?

    I couldn't disagree more. The history of F1 teams rising and falling is incredibly informative, "those who ignore the lessons of the past are doomed to repeat them". Mercedes do not have have a secret sauce that no other team can replicate, that's not how engineering works. People thought Adrian Newey was the secret to success for a while, turns out he was but one ingredient in the recipe - take out some of the other ingredients and the whole dish fails.

    The fascinating title of this thread made me click on it, the stimulating discussion I found within made me stay. Subscriber for life.

    All of which could be said of Ferrari from 99 to 04. **** happens. Assuming that is true, that is two years. What exactly is your basis for assuming Mercedes, or any team, could assume that level of competitiveness for the next 10 years? My poor boy, are you new to this sport?

    1.07 patch - is this legit?

    I thought the same of Ferrari and Schumacher in the early naughties when they had six wins on the trot, but Renault came along and made it interesting again. The same will happen to Mercedes, and you won't have to wait 10 years.

    No argument here!

    Actually they do figure Ss on the formation lap. Except Verstappen, he does figure 8s, into the barrier.

    Today I learnt that my Fanatec gear is indeed as superior as I had presumed, and that words matter... both when attempting to follow written instructions and with respect to possessive pronouns. Tune in next week for another episode of Massive Thread Derails 🤣

    Not exactly another team if you're owned by the same owner and everyone calls you "the pink Mercedes" lol.

    Struggling to make the turns

    Yes, that's why I corrected myself. @janbonator already confirmed that you can set the rotation in game on console. Saturation almost certainly works the same way, though would be unnecessary for the wheel rotation axis if that can be adjusted separately. It's been while since I had a G25 or G27, good point. Either way, 1080 or 900 is completely unsuitable for F1.

    Struggling to make the turns

    Sorry I meant increase the saturation. Are you talking about console or PC? On PC I don't see a way to set rotation, you have to do it with your controller's software. On console does the game automatically apply 360 degree rotation? Is there an in-game setting to control that?
