Has there been any OFFICIAL confirmation that they're fixing this broken game? I don't want to hear "have faith" because i had faith when they delayed the game multiple times in order for them to get the game right, which they didn't... or "they will be doing everything they can" because nobody actually knows this without official word from the developers themselves.

Yes i know this game wasn't an AAA title developed by a master team of developers, but they delayed it multiple times to remove bugs, in which they actually failed to do. They shouldn't of marketed this game like it was an AAA title and sold it at 50, this game is practically a BETA in its current form.

Well various Mods confirmed that the Team is currently working on the game. It was stated that most of the alpha and beta testing took place on the PC version which is somehow obvious because the pc alpha was available to the backers for a long time.
PS4 and Xbox1 versions have the same priority as the PC version and therefore i am confident to say that the team will be able to improve these versions in the next few weeks.

It is a bit early to talk about "having faith". The game is out for a few days, a day one patch was already applied and we have to wait how fast further patches will be released. It will sure take its time because of the Sony/MS approval process...

Its actually laughable at the amount of bugs this game has. Its even causing some Xbox Ones to do a hard reset, WTF?!

Its such a shame because they literally NAILED the driving aspects of things, also the weather effects are amazing. Its just a shame that any weather setting other than clear causes the games frame rate to drop, i've seen better frame rates on a PS1 than on this game when its raining.

Really? Well somehow my Xbox seems to have missed that one, since i preloaded the game on sunday and it didn't start a patching procedure on thursday, when i launched the game the first time..

Hard reset your console, then the patch will download.

Can you check the size of your game file? If you have the patch it must be 18.4GB.

The WMD forum is still active and the members are engaging with the Dev team still. Rest assured this game is not 'dump and forget' but patches still have to go through the console approval process etc and I'm sure the dev team is also making note of the issues noted on this forum causing the most impact to prioritise and work on.

Edit, the devs are posting here too. Search for posts by Ian Bell...

I did also not get a patch. But I think this patch is already included in the Download version. So it will only apply to dere Disc Version.

There is only on thing they must fix with highest priority:
The gamepad steering on the ONE!!! Why can the PS4 players bettter play this game with a more worse controller than we on the ONE, which has the better pad for racing games? We have proplbems on the ONE, which the PS4 gamers don't have. On the ONE only about 30-40% of the stick range is usable for steering at all and there is no setting to change this?! A full turn is on the PS4 Pad by about 80-90% while on the ONE it is on about 30-40%. With this extreme limited sticke range, a fine steereing is completly impossiple with the ONE pad.

None of the many postet setting will solve this and nothing will fix the issues we have on the ONE Pad. :( We need a patch asap, which will bring the same handling to the one as they have on the PS4 or I want my money back and going to buy the PS4 version.

Are people experiencing more problems through the disc version or downloaded version? The reason I ask is that one of my friends downloaded his and it works perfectly. Whereas mine is a disc version and constantly crashes amongst the other audio and visual problems other are experiencing. Is this something that the developer can fix through downloads even on a disc version?

Are you able to confirm that you have the D1P installed, that would be a possible difference between disc based and digital downloaded versions.

Sorry Andy I'm relatively computer illiterate. What is the D1P? Upon first time of putting the disc in it did require that I do an update, which I did, but it's always had small glitches. i.e audio and visual and now it crashes.

Day One (1) Patch. Your game size should now be 18.4GB instead of 18.1GB.

Edit: I had to hard reset my Xbox to get it to download.

Even if I have the disc version not the downloaded version? Sorry if I'm sounding like a div

Yes, the DISC Version is without Day 1 Patch so you need to download it.

Which AFAIK should get automatic if your Console is online.
(Sorry no XBone so i can't say it for sure)

bennybee, check if your game file has 18.1GB or 18.4GB

^^^^^This^^^^^^^

Like he said you reach full lock and the stick is barely half way, makes gentle movements next to impossible. :(

Other than that the game is great, but PLEASE fix the gamepad steering.

No problem bud. Go to My games & apps - Games, then on P Cars press the small right button on the controller then go to manage game and you have that info.

Hi everyone,

Same issue for me , got a disc version, keeps crashing in every race even with hard reset and reinstalled game 5 times with D1p.

I've tried with another disc from a friend and got same issue, all other disc games works fine I don understand.

Does anyone got an answer from dev?

Thanks

What I cant get my head round is the fact I've done all the things listed on the forum to help with the game controls and while better are still far from what I would call enjoyable,yet some cars like LMP1 and formula Gulf are a joy but other cars are a nightmare like the mark 1 escort to name but a few,and it's the disc and download versions that are affected not just retail disc based as a lot of my friends with the digital copy have the same issues

Apparently it tries to install the update before the game is installed, so cancel the update and install from disk first and then do the update.

I have checked the game file size and it says it is 18.5GB. Is there anything more I can do or is it just a matter of waiting for an update?

There's a much easier way to see if a games been patched.

Go to My Games and App and if your game has a little white triangle with a black dot, then its been patched. That's what the triangle represents.

What happened to the days when you purchased a game, you played it and it worked. I think with the birth of the internet and patching, more and more companies are seeing games as a work in progress and releasing them anyway hoping to make enough cash on the initial release to pay the developers to finish the game. Not the way to do it. I understand that games need patches as they are played more by the public and unforseen bugs are found but this game is just broke.

My games don't show that triangle with a dot, it shows an xbox controller with a +. Maybe's the same thing :confused:

Hard reset your console and the patch will be applied, mine was still 18.1gb after install until I did that

Hard reset and it should go back to 18.7gb.
