    MFD shortcut Delay F1 2018 & F1 2019

    Yes, I've reported it in beta phase as well. In F1 2018 already. For some unknown reason they just don't fix this. Another workaround is pressing the ERS hotkey once, and then smash the higher/lower buttons (instead of ERS hotkey like 5 times). Then no input gets ignored. But it's really complicated. I ended up binding the 4 buttons on my right thumb for MFD control.

    F1 2019 - Loss of FPS after patch 1.12 [R2]

    In addition: Here's a vid of a couple of corners of last sunday night online race at Canada. I played back my captured vid and tried to make an angle so you can read the fps and also see where I'm driving on track. Sorry for the weird angle. https://drive.google.com/open?id=12H3WVNPGVrWBRBYjmj6HWzxi5RD4Hl0a In Monaco one week and one patch earlier, FPS was 68-82 range mostly

    F1 2019 - Loss of FPS after patch 1.12 [R2]

    Here's a benchmark comparison from an early version compared to post patch 1.12. Average fps dropped from 126 to 69 in the benchmark. So online in a full lobby I get below 60 fps quite a lot. Annoying really.

    Ai is draining less ERS than me.

    Also in career one can develop ERS. Maybe the AI car of the other team has better developed ERS so it is better in harvesting and deploying? You can only compare with your teammate really.
  5. It's a programmed mechanical failure. The one that Jeff tells you about (to stay out and they're gonna fix it remotely) Online I'd want it as equal as possible, and I never asked for random ingame failures in online mode. It's frustrating for me if my result is lowered by that, and it's not as satisfying for me if someone else tells me he couldn't pass me because of DRS fail. Also in competitive gaming in general, there's no randomness, as far as I know. Gotta admit I don't know anything about competitive RPG games. Unavoidable random fails online already exist in the form of unreliable Steam, unreliable internet, unreliable electricity, unreliable hardware, unreliable windows, and unfortunately at the moment the game isn't 100% reliable yet either. No need to purposely add to that with ingame features.
  6. Did a 50% Spa tonight online in a non-ranked lobby with equal 2019 cars. I had DRS offline for multiple laps. Why is this still not fixed? Imagine how silly it would look if on E-sports finale one can't overtake for the lead because of silly random DRS fail. If footage is needed I can provide that (but it's the same thing as previous 3 years)

    Contract negotiations bug (scammed by Williams)

    4 tracks later again negotiations: no issues there.
  8. Playing on PC patch 1.04 with Williams in my lazy career mode (purposely slow AI on 60 so I always win). After France it was time for my next contract (season 1). I'm really sure that all perks except pitstops were on level 3. I may have clicked on them to see if there would appear a level 4 or so lol. So I clicked on the propose button and all perks changed to none, and contract value depleted, and I checked again after loading Austria, and perks are still on level 0.

    If you are a clean racer, you should be able to manage to get the A or S rating on clean driving and find better lobbies. I managed to do it, and got kicked out (or freed from) the not-so-clean lobby I was in: If you care about clean racing and don't care about ranking system much, there's the new league system that should help you find racers that want the same.

    F1 2019 - Microtransactions...

    It's been years ago since I had to go through financial company stuff for study, but I think 1:4 ratio assets/liabilities is still considered healthy. In addition this news: 01 apr 2019 Source: https://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/217619/codemasters-surges-as-it-levels-up-full-year-earnings-217619.html

    F1 2019 - Microtransactions...

    Didn't study on their financial position but 'some debts' isn't necessarily a bad thing. More extreme and simplified example: Pay back 3 million debt or don't but use it to make 0.5 million extra profit every year.

    F1 2019 - Microtransactions...

    I'm ok with with microtransactions for skins only. You don't have to do microtransactions to enjoy the basic racing. By earning extra money with it, Codies may hire extra programmers to further improve upcoming F1 titles. I don't think I'll go for those paid skins but still I benefit from it. So a few guys may really stick to not buying the game because of skin microtransactions but that tiny loss will be compensated big time by microtransactions. Codies would be silly not to make this move.

    Halo HUD

    I agree it looks nice and initially I thought: great idea to have it on the hud, since you don't have to look so far to the side of the screen for the rev lights when playing in Tcam. However you can adjust your tcam position/angle/fov making the hud no longer exactly match the halo. And I'm also guessing that the halo isn't exactly at the same spot on every different car with default tcam settings either. So all in all, it's quite a complicated feature request to let the hud match the car.

    Nelly Furtado requests more random online failures

    As an option in unranked lobbies, it's fine by me. Unfortunately the game has its flaws every now and then in online mode (desync!) , but I'm still coming back.

    Nelly Furtado requests more random online failures

    Dunno how to say it right but I feel powerless if I get random DRS failure already in my league race. Especially during quali, I explode and think: just do it.
