F1 2018 career difficulty - can’t change

Recommended Posts

Basically, I am unable to change the AI difficulty between race weekends. In my first season I started winning too easily, but couldn’t change the difficulty. I thought maybe it’s because it was patched in later, so I decided to start a new career, but I’m still unable to change it? When at your workstation I go to preferences > gameplay settings, but everything is greyed out, not letting me change anything. I’ve tried this at the end of a race weekend (after actual race), and at the start of a new race weekend, but to no avail 😟

You are able to change it in certain circumstances.  I know this because I literally just changed my difficulty on PS4 after Australia.  You are right that it is greyed out a lot of the time, but keep checking the option as it does "un-grey" before each race weekend (if I recall correctly).  You just can't change it after certain points, but you definitely can adjust this during the season.

Well, I’ve tried it at every conceivable point during a Grand Prix weekend and it still won’t let me change it. I guess the only way to do it now is reset the save, or even reinstall the game, but that means starting over again ☹️ I think I’ll just wait for the new game, which is only about 2 months away now.

Hello magneto71, you can indeed change the AI difficulty between race weekends. You have a couple seconds window in loading screen where you can press the Option button to open the menu and you will be able to change the AI difficulty as well as race lenght % and Qualifications , etc. So all you have to do is press the Option button (to open pause menu) in the first few seconds of a loading screen. Works in the loading between race weekends, between practices sessions, between qualifications and race. Let me know if it works for you that way or if you need some pictures to help you understand when it works ! Have fun and happy racing ! 😀

Thanks! I’ve finally done it 🙂 All this time I’ve been trying to do it when you’re at the workstation screen. Seems to be a bit of an odd time to do it (during loading screens) but I know now. Thanks again 👍
