GRID Autosport Feedback

I'm one of those weird creatures that loved Grid 2. According steam I spent 65 hours on Grid 2, had 259 online races and averaged 2nd (yay!). I like all kinds of race games from sims to arcade games and I liked Grid 2 because it didn't try to be something it wasn't. The drifting was used perfectly to hide the lack of physics but in Autosport that's not the case. Autosport is trying to be something that it's not. There's no physics here, it's trying to be an 'in-between' between simulation and arcade but it should just be a full on arcade game. It's just the Dirt 3 engine powering a tarmac based race game. And we know how bad Dirt 3 felt on tarmac…

But I don't hate the game and I think I'll get a lot of enjoyment from it but it is just a little frustrating that Codemasters have bent to the will of people who are asking for simcade when there's simply not one to offer here.

I loved Grid 2 as well; not because it was trying to be serious but because it was just kinda nice and casual. Think I've done like 3,000 races on it.

Cars in GAS don't feel floaty to me - not any more floaty than they do in grid and grid 2. I had an absolute blast playing with the Camaro SS last night; the back end's so twitchy. Throttle control is so important on this game and I'm amazed I could get podium positions on Very Hard AI difficulty using a pad. Need to try with a wheel at some point. Perhaps at the weekend when my friends get it.

Why oh why no clutch just like your F1 titles? I don't think I'm alone in wanting a clutch, functional mirrors and pit stops Those are important things to any racing games/sim! Also whats up with not being able to adjust anything between 0-100 in the garage? Come Codematsters do your racing titles some justice!
The level of adjustments improves as you upgrade your car. To start with, all cars have their tuning capability set to 'none' or 'low', where 'low' means 'can set things to zero or 100 only'.

Grid Autosport ... Love it! Love it! Love it!

First few hours playing and love it! I'm a realistic sim racer but know a little balance of fun is also good.

Much better than Grid 2 for realism. Jumped straight into Career and completed my first Touring season. Got used to the under-steer and started driving more realistically (vs my Grid 2 bad habits). Loved the close, pack racing with highly competitive AI.

Then jumped across for my next season in the open-wheelers. Here I found my racing heaven. Best racing I've ever had. Sharp turning fast cars where smooth acceleration is required to not spin out. I was quickly able to feel the traction point and love that even if a slide occurs you can still control it and not automatically spin out! It feels real! (more playable than my F1 2012)

Was so great to be able to jump between racing types each season for variety! And for the player to choose.

Great job Codemasters!

Played a few hours offline only  :-\"  and having mucho fun. The handling obviously takes a short while to get used to but then its good, a bit  testing, seat squirming, wheel gripping, face grinning, sort of good :). Looaads better than G2.
I didnt have to set up my G27 at all, left it as it was set with G2 (190 rotation), I just dropped the dead zones in advanced opts and it feels right for me. Tried all disciplines except tuner, I liked the tyre wear thingy on endurance as it makes you drive very smooth or else lose the tyre grip, good for learning the lines.
 Careful hooning ! with the odd powerslide and semi drift is still possible but at great cost in speed so if you want to win you keep it to a minimum and drive proper like. Running at hard setting (abs only) and having a time with the AI, damn Nathan, Rick, and Mahmood they put up a good race, far chase view feels good, graphics are super smooth, no glitching or freezing with a good 60+ fps.
Loving it so far 


:D

further to above ...

my only suggestion so far is that I found the open-wheeler front antenna to be too distracting / annoying as it's centre screen in the head level view I use. I would request that this antenna be removed.

Just another blunder-we were supposed to have co-op mode ala co-op seasons and such. THis has not been delivered, I am not interested in another cheating-online-smashathon. In actual fact the description of Steam was changed on release too. THis is misleading, unethical and I am done buying your products. Lucky I did not buy this one and had a friend going through the pain first.

Codies what is the fucking matter with you. Your AI by the way belongs on a battle field NOT in a racing sim/simcade. LOLZ

You really joined the forum just to comment on a game you had no intention of buying? I wish I had that much time on my hands...
I have time on my hands to point out unethical business practices and to let the producer know, that I don't buy for particular reasons. That is proper feedback without which they could not improve. Given I have not much hope and thus the tone of my comment. But...emphasis on 'not much'-there is still a tiny little glimmer. Oh and you Sir are a troll for stating what you did.

Cool story, bro. Back to pCars with you, then.

same here I actually enjoy Grid 2 for the most part too the only issue I had with the game is the career mode is just too short. I like Grid 1 as well just found difficulty a little too high to really sink my teeth into it. This is why I made sure @Loore took notice of my comments too for feedback.  I felt that they needed to find a better balance for the hardcore racers and the more casual players this time. This was something I felt they failed to do with Grid 1 and  was a mistake repeated I think in F1 2013 it was still an awesome game just needed to be a little less hardcore on the lower settings. It certainly looks and sounds like they've struck a good balance. Haven't got my copy yet but it's on it's way so I'm pretty sure I'll know soon

7. The cars in the club garage are not shown in the design for that club.

8. Online I struggle a bit to see through. I never know if I am racing for the club or not when changing a discipline or car. I can't seem to figure out where I can see this. HELP :-c
7 . The Club Garage on RaceNet shows the best car from each member of that Club.

8. You race for your RaceNet Club whenever you wear your Club livery in a multiplayer race. You can only apply that livery to cars you own - so you will only be racing for your club in your own vehicles. If you're struggling to afford cars, I'd reccommend starting with open wheel (surprisingly cheap) or Cat A touring cars (cheaper than Cat B or C)

 I played a fair bit of GRID 2 & the point to point races were very popular :s


i do kindve miss the point to point races, they wouldve been great with the handling in this game. but other than that i think the game is great, im not a big fan of pure sim games so this one is just arcade enough for me to get into. the dirt series is my favorite but this one is looking like itll get alot of play out of me.

This is right on the money. And you can't even tune a loaner car...because...who can afford a $1M DTM car?

I just want to talk about the graphic what happened?don't get me wrong it's beautiful but why after all the experience with Dirt 3;Grid1/2;F1 2012/2013 and they were all stunning and perfect, why now with Autosport when i watch a replay it's just a little different? I mean less overall illumination and the sky and clouds look fake in some tracks also the models of the cars if you got a close look u can see some imperfections! anyone else has noted this or it's just me and i'm exaggerating?

Too much negativity towards Autosport so far from what I've seen. I personally think this game is great. Absolutely loving the Touring side of it. Having a blast on my PS3 with my G27 wheel.

yeah I've not played the game yet so can't speak from first hand experience but I think some of it's been a little unnecessary given the short turnaround CM have had to create this game.

i think Loore understand, its enough
Are you able to update the drivers at all?

Looking at the 'minimum settings' on Steam your computer's vastly better than the bare-minimum requirements, so what it's likely to be is either a driver issue or a texture-loading issue. If you are able to update the drivers, try that. If not, give your hard disk a good defrag.

That's all I can suggest besides 'get a new computer'. heh.

I do not need advice like that, im expirienced enough for this and have even more advices, but thx anyway :)>-
If talk about drivers, all HD4000 series adapters(and lower) drivers is not refreshing by amd since 2012, so i realy cant update coz nothing to update=) driver what i have is latest.

I noticed that fps drop in main menu increases after race.

Bump up the off-throttle sounds, right now they're almost unhearable. Really it kills the immersion when downshifting and in cornering (throttle modulation). I can hear these off-throttle sounds but again, they're WAY TOO LOW

It could be a driver issues for the GPU if it hasn't been updated for 2 years. In this case I'd suggest you talk to our support team custserv@codemasters.com and they'll be able to help you out.

Just started the first race, and noticed the grass was ridicilously high (couple of meters).
Off to playing again :D

HD texture pack, all settings on Ultra, AMD HD6870 1GB

Disabling soft ambient occlusion fixed the weird grass



Game just crashed on the first race from touring car season on Istanbul Park, did practice session and qualifying without any problems.

Seems my savegame is corrupted now, whenever I load my profile it crashes...

Fixed, crashes had something to do with the second screen, disconnected my second display and I could load my profile again. No issues so far, except that its to much fun and I've got to go to school tomorrow, but I wanna keep playing :(

Anyone else thinkin the audio levels are kinda skewed?

to be more specific, i  would like to hear my own engine much louder than i can seem to set it.

so i have engine level on 100, and all other levels at 50 [which seems to be min for all except speech]

Yet im still struggling to hear my own revs over the exhaust of the guy 5 car lengths infront!

Ive played with dynamic range and system eq, but neither help the issue.

apart from that, its been pretty painless so far.

I saw an option in the settings for an AI audio setting, can't remember which menu it's in but it can be changed from high to medium, low, etc. might solve the problem for you.

Yes I kept thinking the ai was behind me but when I look they are way back, they are a bit loud, my alt enter goes to window and back.

Well I wish I could say that I am impressed. I was excited when the game was announced because I have not yet made the investment for an Xbox One and was really Jonesing for some Forza 5. I didn't expect Grid Autosport to have all of the adjust-ability of the Forza games but I was expecting alot more than I got! Especially considering the fact that the game had Open Wheel Racing. I assumed that with all of the adjust-ability of the Formula One games, that Open Wheel would be similar. Boy was I wrong!

The game thus far has been underwhelming and I am extremely let down by it. There is very little to adjust on the cars. Especially in the lower classes. The controls heavily favor controllers. I literally had to put my steering wheel away and use an Xbox controller to get around. What makes it worse is that there are absolutely no adjustments for the controllers, so there is no way to take the dead zones out of the steering wheels, so they are essentially useless.  For those of us that use the Drivers line as a learning tool, the Drivers line is nearly impossible to see on most of the tracks. Adjusting the Gamma helps a little but go to a street course and you're screwed.

I honestly do not like the ranking system either. It is almost as if the developers are punishing the players for using assists. I am sorry but it shouldn't take 6 races to get from level one to level two.  I still have not seen anything that would lead me to believe that you can purchase upgrades for your cars and create your own liveries. I saw it said somewhere that you could but I have yet to see it and I have turned the game upside down looking for it.

Honestly, this is one game that will end up getting traded back in, in a couple days. Codemasters dropped the ball if you asked me.

at a certain point my engineer told me my gearbox was starting to malfunction, later on it looked bad and finally (on the last lap) he said the gearbox was pretty much done for. Since I'm driving automatic I didnt't notice ANY difference,
I've had this happen as well. I am also using automatic transmission.

I have another small issue relating to key binding.

so i use a g27 wheel along with the pedals, but i dont use the shifter...its up in the  loft the useless pos that it is.

anywa, i tell GAS that im using g27, i customise certain actions and go racing, go through some menus yaddayadda.

Now some menu selections are mapped to g27 buttons that i dont have....theyre on the absent shifter.

I want to re-map these keys to my keyboard....did it in grid....grid2 and other games.

either i havent found the right place in GAS options to do this re-mapping...or its missing from the game.

lil help?

ps...hope yall havin fun 8D

Something I feel needs to be adjusted, since we lack working mirrors, is the arrows that indicate AI cars. For some reason they fade when a car is next to you. Usually when it's positioned so you can't see it looking forward or backwards lol. The Arrows need to remain as long as the AI car's are around you, or at least until they get a half car in front of you. I've had a few incidents where I didn't realize the AI was there until we made contact lol.

OMG!

Myself and Miatakias went for a short spin online, we ended up in San Francisco reversed, this was the first time I'd even tried it reversed and boy ohhh boy what a track!

1st lap top of the hill, the run down went summat like this....

rrrooooaAAARR! "oh s**t!" BADUMF! RWAAARRRRR! "SWEEET J***s!" BADUMF! RAAAAAAAAGGHHHH"  "WHEEEEEEEEEEE!" BADUMMMFFFF then laughing so hard I nearly wet myself for the rest of the lap till the next try!

Yess ! thats it..  thats why I also cant find those keys lol, the GUI menu selector buttons need to be remappable.. And to make it worse I remap all my wheel buttons to views and handbrake so none of them do GUI stuff, only the gear paddles go left and right through some menus.
Biig fun :)

If you have a keyboard plugged in along with your wheel, the keyboard should still function for all the GUI stuff. So ESC to pause/go back, ENTER to select, arrow keys for navigation, F1/F2 correspond to what would be the 'X' and 'Y' buttons on a 360 controller.

Definitely hear what you're saying, that you'd like to be able to see these and remap them on keyboard while your wheels are plugged in. But hopefully if you're struggling with functionality that will help you out a bit! :)

@britpoint @Loore

Is there a possibillity that the chasecam can be fixed in a patch? The view is too low on both views and it would be nice if both were raised so that you can actually look beyond the rear bumper :D

no, its the same like grid 2

trick: you must go with your mouse into the small window and then press alt+enter ! back to game fullscreen without fps drops...;-)

game dosent seem to be alt+tab friendly.
The framerate tanks if you Alt-Tab.  Only way to fix it is to quit and restart the game.  8-|
