[PS4] Illegal Overtake Bug During Safety Car

Recommended Posts

A detailed description of the issue: 

(Video A)

  • During a safety car, if I accidentally overtake another car, I rightfully get an illegal overtake warning.
  • However, when giving the position back, the car I originally overtook now unrightfully gets an illegal overtake warning. 
  • This results in a to and fro-ing between the two cars who are both trying to avoid an illegal overtake penalty. 

(Video B)

  • There was also an occasion where I overtook somebody just after we got a safety car, and the car ahead had to unrightfully concede his place 

Platform: PS4
Version: 1.09
Ranked/Unranked/Leagues: Unranked
Wired or Wireless Connection?: Wireless
The amount of players in your session?: 16
Were you the host?: No
Did this issue happens for everyone in the session, just some people or just yourself? What did they see?: Just me and the car that I experienced the bug with had the issue.
Can you make the problem happen again?: Yes, I have experienced it twice in two races when I've accidentally overtaken/been overtaken by another driver under safety car.

Replication Method:

  • Car 1 that is ahead, slow down and allow car 2 behind to pass.
  • Car 2 should now rightfully get an Illegal Overtake warning.
  • When Car 1 passes Car 2 to regain their position, Car 1 will now get the Illegal Overtake warning, and Car 2's warning will go away.

Report Code: HTHK-RVBM-GDAV-EAKJ is the most recent race (Spain)

Thanks @BarryBL!

Made sure I had replication and the Report Code for this 🙂

Big fan of this. Really helps our investigation get up and running and I can pass straight onto developers and get replication attempted.

  • A detailed description of the issue.  
    I've heard of this glitch often, never had it happen to me before. It's absolutely amazing. 

    In the clip you can see embassy going briefly off track while going slowish. this has me overtake him for a split sec, after which the game tells me I made an illegal overtake. so I let him back past and then HE gets an illegal overtake on me. ad infinitum.  After a while brownie gets passed (Without any issue amazingly) but then I get the same **** with ANOTHER driver (hz3rd) The guy (br0wniE) who's POV the clip is from apparently knows how to fix this. But this is a good example of what playing your game feels like right now. A minefield of glitches that you have to try to navigate while also driving an f1 car. Clear cut case of why not having servers is bad.. just 2 clients thinking they know best and little to no communication between them, or a server that tells who is in the right. 

    Also codemasters have in their infinite wisdom decided that giving pitstop penalties is a good idea. This means that if this bug occurs, people who do overtake under sc get a PITSTOP penalty that, in case of another pitstop, can't be removed by the stewards after the race. A very clear case of bugs being made worse by terrible game design.

    Latest (was yesterday)

    Mix

    No
  • Did this issue happens for everyone in the session, just some people or just yourself? What did they see?
    For at least 3 people (Bica, Embassy, Hz3rd)
  • We need to be able to make your problem happen internally so we can fix the issue. Can you make the problem happen again?
    I guess do close calls like this under sc and have the game glitch out clients not communicate with eachother. 
  • How do you make the problem happen?
    By playing your game. I'm as good as done with it tho. and with these bug reports that you guys use as toilet paper. 
  • Can you add a report code. How to find this is in Main Menu > Game Options > Settings > 16 digit code in the bottom left of the screen. Please make sure that this is the code from the session you had the issue in. Adding report codes from as many users in your session as possible would be really helpful here.
    No. I ragequitted shortly after and you're not fixing it anyway so I'm done bugging people for report codes if the results are HUGELY disappointing patches like the one last week, that only proved to reintroduce old bugs....... Besides. people are getting tired of me asking. I was the only one with any faith you had the intention to fix it to begin with, and it's gone now.

Hi everyone, 

To update here, we currently have a fix for this in its initial testing phases. As always, testing can reveal issues with the fix that may delay it, however, this is something we are working toward resolving. Thanks for the patience on this one.
