Hi there,

Wondering if there were any changes which should make my car now drive like a boat? Went from being consistently top 6-8 in races on 90 difficulty to being dead last on 85 last race I tested. My McLaren is roughly equal 3rd best with several teams in season 2 on PC (25% races); using the driving force GT wheel with ABS and full traction control.

All of my settings appear to be rolled over, so no issue there but the biggest difference I've noticed is all of a sudden I'm not able to turn the car into corners using setups which have always worked. Not an issue if an increase in difficulty was intentional to give better players more of a challenge, it's the first patch I've actually noticed changes, but can't see where in the patch notes it would be due to.

 

Regards,

Pat.

something wierd, after the patch if I alt-tab out of the game the force feedback from my wheel stops working (g27), I need to unplug/plug for it to start working again. Never happened before and I alt-tabed all the time in long races if I need to check on something

Hi @Erudain,

New one to us. Could you add a little more detail and I'll get this to the Development team for you. What I need is:

A short description of the problem:

Platform you’re on (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Steam):

Game Version (Shown on the Start screen in the bottom left hand corner):

Game Mode, including if it was Single Player or Multiplayer (Time Trial, Career, Grand Prix, Custom Game etc):

If in Multiplayer, how many players and how many AI?

What happened in the lead up to the problem?

If you get an error message, the exact wording of the error message you're receiving:

Any accessories you are using (wheel, pad, etc):

If you have any videos or screenshots, please share them. If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears:

PC Steam Win10 using DX12 ver.

Ver. 1.18

Career mode

Wheel Logitech G27

what happened? 1.18 update installed and now if I alt-tab out of the game I'm losing force feedback when I go back to the game. Never happened before. If I unplug and re plug the wheel it fixes, but if I alt-tab again the same thing happens, I lose force feedback and have to unplug again.

Thanks for the information @Erudain,

Please check online and ensure you have the latest firmware for this wheel before we investigate this for you. Also, are you running in full/windowed viewing mode for the game?

Yes it has the latest drivers/firmware...there hasn't been a new driver for the G27 for like 8 years. Running the game in fullscreen

So the two biggest issues with the game, safety car and badly balanced AI driver performances are still not sorted? Awesome. But hey, more very important custom liveries! 

 

Honestly, it's like you're purposely trying to annoy your playerbase. And it's working.

And so we all think something else is the biggest issue with the game.

In my opinion the frequent crashes, stability issues, and desyncs in multiplayer are way more important to fix asap.
