Micro Machines World Series - v1.04. Found a bug? Post it here!

Recommended Posts

Finally boosted the Paramedic trophy last night. Cheers lads, had alot of fun obtaining it & managed to help 6 other people in our group get it too. One problem though was network issues for some as when the game froze or servers failed some lads commented on their PS4s locking up & having to reboot & we are all in different locations in the UK? I know the platinum has been obtained by a couple of people now & I have two mates who are very close, I just hope theirs pop too.
Im going to hopefully boost it with my buddys today. How did you boost it? We are thinking about having a guy in tank on other team kill 5 of our team with the special ability then the last guy revives.

We had a party chat of 7. Basically had 6 on 1 team, then the host of that team counted down to 1 from 3 on Battle Mode on the Quick Play screen & pressed X with the other guy (me) that wasnt in the team of 6 at the same time. This then put for example me on the opposite side, I was in the Monster Truck, killed 2 guys off the opposite team (they basically came to me and sat there so I could kill them) to build my special faster, whilst the others were making sure the bomb/flag wasnt getting stolen/destroyed, then once one of the others had their revive special fully charged, eveyone piled to one corner, I used my special (tornado) to kill them all & the one left with the Heal ability (make sure they sit away from the tornado) pressed X to revive & then net the trophy.  

Having microphones is key though to allow you to relay the info so people know what they are supposed to be doing. Party chat with 6-7 members.

Hope this helps. ;)

Ahh thats basically what we were going to do with the tank. The monster truck makes more sense so will try with that instead. Cheers for the tips!

Ok so this is ******* unacceptable now, me and my mates just won a ranked match but rhe server crashed and threw us out. We have all lost a further 80 points and have been given defector penalties.

This is absolutely disgraceful and is ruining our experience of the game. We want to platinum this game and be able to enjoy the challenge but this is not a challenge it is an utter ****fest.

Please for the love of god sort out your ******* servers or at least stop us losing points when your servers screw up.

Server problems on PC.
Every now & then it will lose connection to server. Which is ok at the end of a race, but a bit annoying mid race. 
Also, quite often in races it's hard to see where other racers are, as the connection seems to fall behind or something. Even with a good connection and not much else running in the background. This makes it impossible to race properly. It's like the other cars are floating away or on strings, until the point where it becomes unbearable. I usually have to restart/reload the game.

Well logged in tonight, 11 July after latest update and upon launching the game it popped up saying my game save data is corrupt, reset or retry, .  The Retry didnt work, so clicked reset and of course it's put me back to level 1. Please reinstate my previous Rank to what it was, i dont want to level up to rank 14-15 again.  Come on, fix this please.  No need for this to occur on a game priced in this range connecting to official servers...

This keeps happening on PS4 servers as well and it results in loss of points and defector penalties.

I feel sorry for you as I know personally how frustrating this is.

I have been enjoying the game greatly since release with only a few minor issues (you already know what these are) however I do have a couple of thoughts regarding the game.

1.the season is too long it should be weekly running Monday to Sunday or a variation thereof.

2.weapons need to be redressed the player in first is the only player that gets the thing he wants, a completely overpowered bomb which makes them nearly impossible to catch if they're even remotely sensible with bomb placement, either we need some form of defence against it or ironically it needs nerfing. even a couple of new ones noz boost or shield?

3.when selecting a new race from the menu race should be at the top of the list of options, if we are being sent back to the desktop between races at least make getting another race a one button affair. Obviously what we really want are championships 3 or 4 race 5 points for the win type of thing.

well for now that's all I have thanks for a great start

can't wait to buy some skins or track packs

Ever since I downloaded the update, nearly every time we play skirmish mode the game is force closing. Originally it was every second or third match, but now it's every time. 
As we mainly play this game when friends are over, obviously it's not ideal.

There are some image problems with something which looks like smoke coming across the screen at some points during the "Toaster Troubles" level - espicially on the table after you have left the toaster.
Perhaps it's from some burnt toast?

Since the fix for the "no ranking points for players in a group" I haven't come across a genuine in-game bug (as in incorrect behaviour of any kind when everything works as it should). My main gripe at the moment is with the reliability of the servers.

Don't get me wrong - I love this game. I don't wish to make it sound like I'm hating on it. I've put 20 hours in already and over 250 ranked races so far. I'm loving every minute of it.

But the servers are really spoiling this enjoyment at times. Toaster Troubles, in particular, glitched out on me massively this week. I got stuck in the toaster. To my eyes on my game - so did everyone else. We all seemed to pile into it and then nothing happened. So I left it well alone thinking "we'll all be released eventually" even though it didn't look likely. Then, out of nowhere, I was the only one launched out of the toaster. Que me thinking "OK this is odd but I'll carry on and finish the race anyway". Within 30 seconds of this, the race ended. I finished 11th with a DNF and a loss of 80 POINTS. 80. That's TWO race wins down the drain. Through no fault of my own.

This isn't the only time I've been kicked from races with the servers either. There are fairly regular network errors which mean I can't join a race, races that cut out mid session, races which cut out just as I cross the line... the list goes on. Rarely have any of these cost me points (unlike my experience on the Toaster track) but it's still massively frustrating.

Usually I'm the player who reads the complaints of everyone else and thinks "I've never experienced that" but not in this case. This time around I've had quite a regular issue with the servers just suddenly kicking me out mid-race / not letting me race at all. I do hope that you have a plan in place to improve your servers reliability as things go forward.

It's borderline unacceptable reliability recently.

Seriously guys if you are not able to fix your servers can you please at least apply a fix that prevents players from losing points when they are kicked out of a game due to yout servers failing!

It is happening all too often to many people and is incredibly frustrating to lose 80points for something that is not actually a loss. It takes long enough to rank up as it is without this little bug destroying our chances of getting anywhere.

Can you please also fix the Haunted trophy as it is still glitched and not allowing some people to obtain it.

Only one small gripe from me and I hope it gets fixed. Please reduce the ridiculous waiting times to start a game, when 85% of the time, you get put in a race with bots anyway. I just came out of the game annoyed after waiting 290+ seconds for an average 85s wait (which is just silly.) Waiting times are no better even when teamed up with mates.  
It is literally spoiling the great party game it should be.:'(

v1.04 on PS4. Just played for the first time - there's a quarter second delay on steering inputs which is ruining the game for me. The last MM I played was the Megadrive version which is sharp as you like - I really expected this new version to be a LOT more responsive...

2 days in a row and waiting times are getting worse. I've tried hopping out and back in, reloading the game, resetting my LAN connection to the router and even the router itself (phew.) 
Nothing on my side is causing this.  I have superb internet speed for my area so I can't blame my provider. Upload is around 10Mbs with an average of 45Mbps on the download.

I got one ranked elimination round tonight after waiting an outrageous 160+seconds to join one. I was put into a game against an elite player and I'm only on silver, with the remaining members being NPCs.

Is the player base so low, the only match it can give me is against an elite? For him/her this was like shooting fish in a barrel. I mean, what chance do I have, of ranking up effectively against that calibre of player? That was the last match I got before the wait turned into an eternity and I just gave up. 

Given the fact I've only had around five hours play since this game released, four of which sitting in a broken lobby, all I ask is please, for the sake of the game...
FIX THE WAITING TIMES BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE

Hi,

I bought the game yesterday and keep getting the CE-34878-0 error when playing co-op multiplayer.

I reinstalled the game and then that appeared to had fixed the issue but it has started to crash again. I tried all other applications on my PS4 Pro and the crashes are only occurring on Micro Machines.

Me and my wife  only play co-op and this error is making the game unplayable so please advise on how I can fix this issue.

I've found that on more than one occasion and any track, if I get too far ahead of the opponents in an elimination round, I'm the one that gets eliminated. This is quite frustrating.

Sometimes, when you pick up a Bomb, if you tap fire repeatedly, you can actually drop 2 Bombs. So if you already have a bomb saved, there's a possibility you can drop 3 bombs. But that's kinda fun i guess. 

(I only play race and elimination modes)
