I have just started GRID Autosport and found that it doesnt recognise my Fanatec CSR, just shows as a Microsoft Racing wheel same as everyone else. The problem being, if i select manual sequential, the assigned buttons are wrong for the shifters. i cant shift up or down. When i try to edit the controls, ive found using left/right shifters only bring up "A" as selected. There is NO MAPPING FOR LB/RB WHATSOEVER!! What is going on.? I cant use manual gears because of this which is ridiculous! There is NO button on the wheel mapped to LB or RB whatsoever. The shifters just show as "A"? What am i doing wrong here has anyone else found this problem. Im running a CSR with firmware 756..
Check out this post from another thread, this sounds like the same thing.

Gearbox has no damage indicator, but if you ask your engineer it will tell you it is damaged. Maybe you just downshift to early (as i tend to do :) ). Or it is genuin bug, hard to tell.
Maybe this is the problem I have, the box is damaged and it isn't showing. But I use the auto box ... I will check.

You are right, could be a bug, my software guys would describe this as a "feature" !
@Loore

OK I understand this now. Basically the problem is as Thorinbur describes. The gearbox gets damaged, but because there is no damage indicator for the gearbox, you cannot tell it is damaged, except by asking on the pit radio. 

One more point is when the gearbox is damaged, it gets damaged towards the end of the practice run (20 mins) on an automatic gearbox. In other words on an automatic gearbox for 10 laps of Istanbul GP circuit on the Openwheelers, the gearbox will always be damaged by lap 10. This doesn't feel quite right to me. If the auto gearbox shifting cannot go more than 10 laps without damage, how can a manual shift be expected to ? It would be nice to have some clues on what actually damages the gearbox...is it just shifting or does overrevving do it ?

Re the damage indicators, I also find it a bit strange that when you burst a tyre this is not shown on the damage indicator section. I understand that the real point of this is to show tyre wear on endurance, but it seems a bit silly not to use it to show when you are running on wheel rims as well.

All this was on PS3.

I don't think the force feedback is up to Codemasters usual standards, at least with my DFGT.  You (I) only have to try Dirt 3 or Grid 2 to see compared to those, Autosport feedback feels very lazy and unfocused, with much of the 'slip' effects completely absent or vague at best.  Main gripe at the minute.

I'll also put out another shout for the lack of lobby chat, and lap countdown for online races in progress.  Also you can start a race, retire, and are then given the option to spectate, so this must be technically possible in the lobby too?.

In online endurance events, my HUD shows up after the race starts. Hard to get a good, smooth start when I can't see my RPMs. Also the livery load times are super slow when scrolling through the list as you pick your car online.

So far I have been really let down by it. I swear if I hear the crew chief say my opponent will be playing that over and over I am gonna scream! I really expected more. The lack of setup options sucks. At first I thought the AI IN The game was pretty cool but that got old fast. Seriously! No driver is going to cut clear across a lane to throw you a block going into a turn. I spend more time fixing my car than I do racing. Buying cars? Forget about it. You can't earn enough in single player to buy any cars and the choices suck anyway. I refuse to play the multiplayer side of the game because all of the crash happy kiddies take the race out of racing. The lack of setup control, lack of ability to buy and set up cars and other half thought out options will have me taking this back to the store to trade in soon. I should have learned after Grid 2. Codie's you need to stick with Formula 1 games because it seems like that is the only thing you can get right.

Well, I have Thrustmaster T 500 RS wheel, and it feels like I am driving the boat on the lake. I tried all kinds of adjustments (on the wheel, and in the game) and nothing . . . .The wheel is on 720 degrees, and with the latest 4.1 firmware update, which is by the way PERFECT for Dirt 1 and 2, and for Need For Speed Shift 1 and 2, so I am very VERY disappointed with the handling, so I gave up playing, because of frustration . . .Any advice or words of wisdom

A lot of people who normally use larger degrees of rotation are saying it helps a lot if you dial it down to around 270.  This can possibly be explained by the fact the wheel support in this title feels like an after thought, and merely emulating a gamepad controller (compared to Codemasters usual standards).

Well, here are my thoughts....
What most of you guys seem to misunderstand is that Codemasters didn't create a full driving Sim. This game is a cross between arcade and sim. Give you a taste of different types of car. You expect the cars to handle like Assetto Corsa. If you want to be real, get a full sim game and drive there.
I run my own online Sim League, so I know what I'm talking about. The game is what it is and I think the makers have done a fairly good job that gives you some fun but won't push you to the limit like real Sim racing would.
Thumbs up Codies for a Arcade game that gives the driver a bit extra.
There will always be people that moan about everything. Wanna drive a full Sim? Then get one and stop moaning about everything. You don't know it all, even if you think you do.

my feedback is...


WHERE IS THE FORCE FEEDBACK? Game is ruined, the fact the i got a corrupted save  that already made me lost 250 races of earning is just a plus.

 REALLY? WHERE IS THE FORCE FEEDBACK? Grid2 Force feedback was GREAT can it be THAT HARD to press ctrl+C / Ctrl+V ???

  • Now that i went deeper in the game i must admit that is a good game very well made, i now appreciate the car handling! 
  • 1. I dislike the fact that i can't have my own team with a custom livery and selection of sponsor, i know there is in multi but that's different! I would have more fictional liveries and real too!
  • 2.I don't understand why you have proposed again the street discipline, ok it's fun but i think in my opinion useless because what i want is a race car not a simple sport car! We should  have had instead more Touring cars;Endurance and SUPER modified cars to race simply in street tracks, much much better i'm sure everyone would agree with me!( In advance please no mistakes with dlc)
  • 3.About multiplayer i can't tolerate peolpe with aggressive behavior, i was first and a dude didn't brake and crashed hard in my rear, i went off track he won me second! In this case it's necessary a penalty immediately or for example at the end of the race a swap finish place at least!!! it also needs to be fix the fact that people who lost a tyre they can drive with only alloys on straights as fast as the others!!!
  • 4.I saw a general aliasing especially on the body of the cars and when you have a close camera view, looking at shadows and tyres alloys in replay you can see a blur effect like in DIRT 3.
  • 5. Is possible to have light/heavy rain on tracks and also 20/24 cars on track for touring car?? would be an awesome carnage! I really hope to receive an answer from codemasters please!

@Loore

Please do something about track randomization in playlists. Almost only reverse or alternative versions of tracks pop-out. I want to choose from original layouts more. And within every class there are always limited number of same tracks.

Some improvements that I think should really be fixed to help the game! Playing on Xbox 360.
  • More diversity in tracks with the online playlists (and include Red Bull Ring!)
  • Better RaceNet functionality, instead of having to send potential recruits to the website, just send them an invite to your club in-game.
  • Ability to see what category is used for the circuits in the circuit voting screen.
  • Bug? Or huge amount of durability on cars you have owned needs reducing, I'm losing money just trying to keep my Formula B car in a decent spec because it loses 15% per race at the moment.
That's everything off the top of my head right now, if there's anything else I'll add it later haha :D

How do you get the [***] club letters to come up before my name online ?

I own 5 cars and they all have the club skin on . . .
~O)
They should appear in front of your name when you are driving a car you own. If it's a loaner, the club letters will not be there.

Ok so I have been helping @Dinamo38 with a corrupt save file issue. I tried to re-create this issue using his information that he sent (Windows OS and specs etc), what I found was that if the game closes or crashes unexpectedly during either a load or a save sequence, it WILL corrupt the save data on Windows 8 & 8.1. What was interesting was it did not do so on Windows 7!

So I investigated more, and upon examining the corrupted save file that I now had, it appeared that what had happened was that when the game closed unexpectedly, the save file was overwritten in places with 0 bytes! This was caused by the Windows SmartScreen technology within Windows 8 and 8.1. (I won't go into too much detail here as to how I know this, as it would make a rather lengthy post!)

So I then proceeded to disable this SmartScreen via the services panel within Windows. I then re-created the crash scenarios and exits etc, and to very little surprise, the save files were totally intact! So there is a minor fix.

@Loore maybe this needs to be worked on as many people have moved to this newer operating system, and many people will want to leave SmartScreen on. So whilst it is a small workaround, perhaps the Dev team can look into this rather annoying bug that is causing peoples careers to become corrupted. I of course can always forward my findings onto you upon request.

All the best guys,

BioShocker

Yup, you got it. The club letters only appear when you race a car you own and has the club livery on it.

@Loore‌ i think ive found a little glitch/bug, im in custom cup on the ps3 in the V8 supercars at bathurst, and i put my brake bias +20 to the rear and was locking up my fronts, so i thought hang on i might put the brakes all the way to the "rear" and then went back out on track and i had both fronts locked up big time into turn one, so i turned the bias to the "front" and yep you guessed it i locked the rears haha i was slamming on the brakes to actually test it but yeah could you tell the guess that they will have to re do the brake bias :) absolute ripper of a game by the way! :D

1. Colors.
    When i try to install the same color in different slots livery, i should determine to the eye as the colors match. What i want suggest: front of the color bar to set a certain number as on screens.
Now: 
What i want: 
2. Flashback.
    Why flashback does not look like the Race Driver: Grid or Dirt 2, 3, Showdown?
    And flashbaсk is not working quite right.Before using my car wasn't damaged after the use damage appeared.
3. Clubs livery.
    Why i cant to set my personal sponsors in my car with club livery?
4. Menu.
    Why car's engine work in menu, therefore car is shaking. And i want to turn off car light. And make a lighter around the car.
5. Spectators on the track.
    In graphic options i can disable spectatops, but i listen shouts from the tribunes on the track.
6. Remains car bumpers, spoilers, hoods and etc.
    They are lying, or what is more surprising to soar above the track. It would be nice, if they say disappeared after one lap of race.

7. Ingame cash.
    I think that too little money is paid for participation in the race.
8. No collision mode.
    When my friends want to find out who the best racer, we turn off the collision. But starting grid still works. ie my friend can come first, and I'm on the twelfth. Is not sports.
P.S. Sorry for my bad English and thanks for reading.

Been playing the game since Monday so I'll post a bit about what I've found.  Some may be bugs, some are just minor annoyances.  All in all, really enjoying the game and have probably equalled the amount of playing time that G2 got!

Racenet Challenges
  • Once you've entered a challenge and set up your car, you cannot get back to setup menu without quitting the game and restarting the challenge again.  Seems a little long winded.
  • The last touring car challenge on Bathurst - some people had times of 1:56.  Whilst I'm not one to throw out cheat accusations, I'm not exactly slow and I can't break the 2:00 barrier, let alone an additional 4 seconds.  People may be using fully tuned cars or getting quite lucky on the AI cars to slipstream but to me, 4 seconds seems a fair bit of a gap. There should be something in the leaderboards which shows the level of car rank used to make the time.
  • AI on these challenges are very poor.  They should at least match what our ingame career difficulty because the slow AI are too unpredictable and block every corner no matter which way I try to get around them.  Rage inducing!

Online

  • Whilst I like playlists for the randomness of tracks/car combo's, it would be nice if we could see which sessions are available within a particluar playlist.  I've left a few playlists because some people aren't exactly fair, only to restart and end up in the same one again.  Having to keep restarting the session in hope of finding a different Street room is highly annoying.  Please let me pick which Street Playlist I want to go in! 
  • Text chat - hear me out, I know its done to the death but it is very important for PC users.  I've played a lot of online games against some good people and on occasions, I may end up running out of talent at a particular turn.  I jump on the mic to apologise and hear nothing back, yet the guy I've just hit is in a session with 2 other mates.  I presume they have their voice locked down to friends only so they can't hear me apologise.  On the 2nd track, I get smashed to pieces by said group.  I feel a quick "sorry mate, bit ambitious there" would go a long way in avoiding these situations.
  • Joining a lobby - would like to see laps remaining in a session - sometimes I'm waiting for ages.
  • Spectator mode - you can join spectator at the end of the race but not whilst you are waiting.  Just seems a bit strange and I'm pretty sure this has been mentioned before, but let us see what's going on in the session whilst we wait.  If there's idiots, we don't have to waste time waiting for the next race and can be merrily on our way to the next session (that's if we don't get stuck in the session loop cycle and keep rejoining the same one - hence letting us pick it!)
General HUD / Cockpit
  • Fastest lap for a particular car/track should be permanently shown on the HUD so you know what to aim for.  Bit pointless having the fastest lap of the session only.
  • A rear view mirror would be nice or the option to turn it on/off
  • Blurred cockpit cam - not that I use cockpit cam, but it does look a little bland and I can understand why it upsets those who primarily use that view.  At the very least, there should be working dials - especially when you have the option to remove your HUD.  Even the vehicles in the beta version of Battlefield Hardline had working dials.

Garages/Cars/Menu options

  • Garage slots - There's not enough - I end up having to pick all my garage slots for 1 particular class.  I have bought maximum slots and have just filled my garages with street cars until I rank them up.  Then I end up selling them all just to move onto the next class.  Surely we should have 8/10 slots per class and not 8 slots across the whole game.  With the repair bills on top, it's hard to win enough money to stay afloat and be competitive when you keep selling your ranked cars to buy the next class specific cars to tune those.
  • Repair - please can we have a 'repair all' option instead of having to repair individual elements all the time - or get rid of this feature altogether.
  • Tuning setup - as mentioned earlier, allow us to enter this menu from the pause screen in offline/racenet challenge mode.  Having to go round the houses and wait for cut scenes becomes tedious after a while.
  • Car purchase - allow us to do it from the car selecting screen i.e. you join a session and have to pick a loaner car but you may have enough cash to buy that car.  Just give us a buy now option instead of us having to quit the game just go to go to the car buying menu.  Also, if you don't have a garage slot, let us purchase that at the same time (or remove the garage limit and just include the 'buy now' option for the car in the menu)
As metioned at the beginning, I'm properly enjoying a Codemasters game again and have met some fast and fair people online, more so than I found in G1 and G2.  To be fair, most of the sessions I've played in haven't tolerated idiots and they've been swiftly booted come the next race. 

I've also embraced the voice comms given the lack of text chat but I still think there's some way to maintain player engagament and longevity of GAS.

Good job codies, keep listening to your community!

Ah ok mate - I don't know how to access that friends list as all mine are on Steam.  I'll have a quick butchers now but maybe thats another comment for feedback.. More intuitive menus that tell you when you receive a msg etc!

I'm usually flitting about the street and touring playlists with some mates so we usually get some good banter and swiftly kick any crashers/idiots.  Defo be up for a game of that with the regulars tho!

Am now a manager in [DRT], JustBigLee's Club, and can race without coming last all the time, or any other nonsense . . . it's all down to the mix and you guys are way too fast for me . . Oh, and Dave is a manager so it's a bit like old times, more tea  . .

lovin your work doode.

Alas, i dont think were gonna get much else in touring on grid autosport, however id love to be wrong.

The genre deserves a game of its own in my opinion, and would include all btcc, wtcc and other touring classes from all over the world.

itd have weather, snow, desert, lots and lots of uk tracks, and a tiff needel voice over as a nod to the past.
oh, and there would be no tank unlocks or lava land tracks!

can't see them adding weather in now given it would be a big job given every car in the game reacts differently to different weather conditions. I think this is the primary reason why weather has been left out. New tracks & cars and a few new competitions are a given as they're already looking at this I believe for DLC.

Before you say anything yes there is weather in the F1 games but in that game they only worry about F1 cars. Grid Autosport on the other hand has a large range of cars from multiple different disciplines all with their own way of handling. It may be possible once Grid or what the next game in this series is goes next gen. I think right now it's about enjoying what we have now that CM are back on track.

I thought the "Black" edition included a Mercedes car, and that the pre-order on Steam was the "Black" edition ?


'GRID Autosport' is due out next week, which means there's still time to nab the Black Edition. The Black edition includes the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe Black Series Car, 5 Black Edition White Ravenwest Liveries, 20 Extra Black Edition Online Livery Patterns, and 10 New Premium sponsors with objectives.

Steam says the Black edition has been installed but the Mercedes in question will cost 230,000 ingame . .so where is the deal in that ?

Oh hey I recognize that WTCC Chevrolet Cruze. I'm trying out one of their sponsors (Steel Seal) on my dodgy head gasket tonight. If no car handling gets designed tomorrow it'll be because it didn't work and my engine exploded.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the old Detroit, Long Beach, Donnington Park, Milan and Nurburgring circuits in a future DLC release. These were the very best circuits for multiplayer races! With the servers taken down on PS3, it doesn't make sense not to have them in the new game? Please!

I haven't been able to play much of the game, because I got problems using the clutch with a Logitech G27. For some reason, I have to stomp on it, it all the way. I do mean all the way. A few minutes ago I made a few tests and, if I rise my foot even a little, it doesn't register and I miss the gear shift.
So far, it has been so frustrating that I usually just Alt-F4 out of the game and go to play Assetto Corsa or Shift 2, where this problem doesn't happen.
Now that I know what's going on, I'm going to choose the control scheme without the clutch, sadly. It's better to miss that, than not being able to play the game =/
I will appreciate any tip to solve this problem :)
Cheers!
