Why are group 4 and group 5 and DTM forced together in multiplayler? I want to set up a multiplayer lobby and let people choose both group 5 cars, but not group 4 ( BMW procar) and DTM. I can set same class, but that includes all of these. And if I set it to same car, can people choose BOTH group 5 cars and not feks the zakspeed if that is the car I have chosen? I would also like to use AI to fill up grid and the computer doesnt know wich cars I want it to use if it isnt an option where I do that.

I guess the devs never thought of that.

Yes I'm not sure what they were thinking to be honest. It's the same with the classic GT cars, everyone picks the Ford GT which completely outclasses the Merc and Sierra.

Any plans to allow hosts to choose their own groups of cars by selecting x number of whatever cars they want?

The touring cars are nice but the Clio really spoils the view :confused:

Sorry to say frodesa, but I assume the DTM cars are for Beginner and Douche bags in this Group only. These kind of Players choose DTM cars only for win (e.g. a golden Banana or the stupiest racer on the track tec.) but not for a good Race
Keep your pace up mate!

Would like to hear from devs on this since it kind of ruins multiplayer. At least make each class race on its own.

Exactly.

I made an online lobby with the Renault Clio cup cars, as I like FWD....lol...... but everyone turns up in the Merc and Beamers and crush me. The Class System needs an overhaul, and the entire online scenario needs rebuilding from scratch.

TOCA on the XBOX (15 (?) years ago) was better online.

There are no Ratings system, Rated vs Unrated races, multi-race tourneys.... nothing. No in-race chat with quick presses. No-one gets to chat as the lobbies are badly thought out, and there's no reason to come back.

Shambles. Which is a shame, as the lag situation is pretty good most of the time, so it could -= theoretically - be VERY good online.

The in game chat works ..you need to map it to bring it up in cockpit ... works fine

Hopefully when the DS gets finished it will have a way to divide the groups into there proper classes ..

or give us something we can do with the files to edit the classes we want, the ones that belong together .??

This might be doable ?

I hope we dont have to edit files to make single classes in multiplayer. GT4 should be one, class GT5 one class, group 4 one class, group 5 one class and so on.....

The server creator can force "identical cars" so that everyone is driving the same car, rather than by default having all cars from one class available, which is a not good for the "open wheel" class (Formula Rookie; Formula C; Formula B; Formula A).

A Clio cup is a touring car like the grp a cars. And the dtm merc is a silhouette racer like the group 5 cars.

I think the class system is all wrong. I havent checked but if it is one class called open wheel that is not good. Formula rookie should be one class, formula gulf another and so on.

*BUMP*

This is vital for on line league/grouped racing ..

PLEASE give us a way to set up the sessions to have the proper classes of "like" cars~!

If not is there a way to edit the script that the "create MP session" files use to set the proper cars together for MP ?? ,then have the server show those edited groups in the available selections rather then the multi groups that are forced together now ?

Would be great guys !!!

thanks !!

Here in europe you can't purchase the limited edition upgrade pack and so you have no chance in the races. At hotlaps the same thing. It's really pay to win.
