View Full Version : Setups resetting on session change

So I've seen this issue reported on the X1 and PC forums, but didn't see it listed on the PS4's known issues top thread. Others were posting that they were having this trouble on the PS4, but I didn't see a thread in this PS4 board, so I apologize if I happened to miss it.

It's a frustrating bug, that seems to only occur for invitational events in career mode. (EDIT: I just had it happen in the Superkart Nationals, so it seems to be more widespread...) I can make changes to the setup of the car (tire pressure, fuel load, etc) and run a lap, but as soon as I return to the garage and try to tune the setup, all the changes revert back to the default that was loaded initially. This bug also carries over to moving from different sessions (practice to qualifying to race...) where I can make the changes, run on track, skip to the end of session and then check the setup in the new session and it has defaulted again.

If it matters, I'm on the 250cc superkart season as of today. For some reason, on select invitationals the method in which it defaults between sessions changes (the Pagani Monza one I just tested and my setups didn't default unless I left to the calender). The previous invitational I participated in (The WMD Euro TrackDay Trophy) the setup was defaulting like crazy every time I loaded the "edit tuning setup" menu.

I should say I love the game and the races when I don't have to remember my setup to revert it back when it defaults. I have found no workaround so far.

A few of us have noted it here.

http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?24221-FFB-settings-saved-in-garage-different-when-in-a-even

And they did finally add it to the known issues thread in the physics section. It affects the car tuning a and the FFB tunings.

Annoying as hell. Hope they fix it soon. I'll probably just skip invitationals until it's patched.

I don't skip the invitationals, you earn accolades with them... ;)

As annoying a bug as it is, I also power through them. (Harken back to the old racing days when you had to write you setups down on pen and paper.) ;)

That being said, please, devs: figure out what it is that is resetting those setups for FFB and tuning.

Damn. Guess I'll have to suffer through the resetting if I get them again. They really should have just delayed this again, at least on consoles given the amount of bugs the ps4 and X1 version have. Between this and Driveclub's launch problems I'll probably not buy any more racing games day one. Better to wait for a sale and some patches to roll out.

So far so good in my new career after deleting the first. Got through the tier 8 kart season and two invitationals with no setting resets. I've avoided using the return to pit box option (as that's when I first got the glitch) and just restart session if I want to tweak things. No idea if that helps or the glitch is just in certain invitational events as I got two different ones this time vs my first career.

Thanks for the update! I'll consider doing that and restarting (thank goodness career allows you to select where you can start) until they can fix it.

Currently running a GT3 season in career and this happens in all the races I've had. The only way I manage to stop the reset was to not use the Back to Pit option.

Yup. That's been my go to "workaround" as of now.

Dmaul's trick of just restarting the session has greatly decreased the amount of resets that I've experienced, even in invitationals. I still get them occasionally (in both invite and career main races).

I will add that Dmaul restarted his career and saw improvement. I waited and just didn't use the "back to pit" option in my current career and it has helped minimize the resets.

Happens all over PCars..no matter what track or gameplay. In practice rounds it happens all the time. Makes tuning setup a hell of a job. All practice time runs out because of it!!

My solution was just power through the awful settings but lower the ai about 20-30%. Did anyone else have a problem with gears being blended? Some moments my third gear would switch to the ratio of two, then four would become three, and so on

I use free practise to get my setups sorted now. This has worked for me 100% but maybe I'm just lucky. I do get my setups reset in career though.

Now that you mention it, I have had a few gears switch themselves down past 2nd (and click back a tick through the top gear), but it happens so randomly I couldn't put it down as to what even triggered it.

This just started happening to me tonight. I'm doing the McLaren F1 invitational and practice was fine. But then when I started qualifying my wheel felt lighter and my car was spinning out too easy. I check and everything defaulted. So I re-do my settings and start to race. Car and wheel feels fine but after a couple of laps it defaulted while on the track. I had my rear camber set to - 1.6 and it was running great. But then after 2-4 laps, car is real unstable and rear tires getting real hot. I check my tune and other then everything defaulting, my rear camber is now -3.

I know this is in the "Known bugs thread" but just wanted to state that I am also having this problem of all settings getting whacked.. not even to default often to some weird stuff like horrible gear ratios. I have the settings created in my garage and saved to all tracks for these cars yet that is not used.

Has been happening in UK historic racing the Ford Escort 1600 invitational, and the Karting 125cc invitational after i finished my Ginetta G40 season.


.... Did anyone else have a problem with gears being blended? Some moments my third gear would switch to the ratio of two, then four would become three, and so on


Yes - this is happening to me in the Ford Escort 1600 UK historic.

Hello guys, first sorry for my poor English... I'm a french guy but I'll do my best to explain the problem lol ;)

When I make a setup and save it for one track, if I come back to the pit box during the session (by pushing start, return to pit box), my setup has disappeared and back to the default settings :(
EVEN WORSE... When back to the pit box, we change the setup and come back on the track to test, nothing has changed ! We are still driving with the first setup we had made at the beginning of the session !

For example : In the garage, before launching a session, I take the RUF RGT-8 GT3, which has a 15,4:1 in "steering ratio" , by default. I set this on the weakest value. I save it for one track, and then I go to test on that same track. In the pit box, before driving, I check if my setup with the weakest value for "steering ratio" appears, everything is ok, then I start driving. Everything is normal, I can clearly see the changes while turning the Wheel left and right. Very sensitive ... For the moment, everything is ok. BUT, I push start to come back to the pit box, and set back "steering ratio" to 15,4:1. I save and go back to test on the track ... Test by yourself guys, we still have an ultra sensitive steering wheel, exactly when "steering ratio" was at its weakest value !!!

If you want the game to really activate your changes, you have to quit the session and begin a new one ! So we can't make our setting in pit box and test the effects when we come back on the track :((

I'd just like to add that I have experienced this issue pre-patch, so this is not a bug that was introduced with 1.4. I guess 1.4 just never fixed this. It doesn't happen every time though.

This was supposed to be fixed as stated in the patch notes- "* Fixed an issue where custom vehicle setups were lost when progressing through sessions."

This is worse than before as it used to keep settings for the session. Now they reset everytime you leave the pits!!

This bug was present pre-patch. It just didn't happen very often.

Yes it was present before 1.4, but now everytime. Even if you think that the game has saved your changes when you come back in the pit, the action of your car stay the same unless you quit the session and start a new one.

I still have the same issue. Every time. Making the game unplayable with anything but default setup config, that I have to reset every time I return to the pits.

If I still could, I would actually return this game now, since it is basically unplayable.

I don't know if this thread covers it, but sometime bump stops are reseted between sessions. I tune the car in free practice mode and after that I go online to try it. I prefer rooms with qualification so I can check if setup is loaded correctly. Usually everything is ok, only occasionally bumps stops values are replaced by some other values, e.g. I have 13 mm on all four wheels and after reset there is 4 mm on fronts and 7 mm on rears.

Will this issue be fixed with patch 2.0 ?

How can we play if our setup always resets ??

I'm having the same problem; I'm in a GT4 career mode (driving Ford Mustang) and find that my set-ups are being changed in-between sessions and also when using the return to pit box option during a session. Changes include: steering ratio reset from custom value to default; fuel load reset from custom to full tank, gear ratios reset. In fact the gear ratio is the weirdest; I had three visits to the pit in one practice session and different sets of ratios appeared each time!

Love the game though! ;)

It's not in the patch notes (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?32776-Project-CARS-All-Platforms-Upcoming-Patch-2-0-Release-notes), so I guess it won't be fixed until the patch after that one unfortunately.

Pretty disappointing considering the original attempt at fixing it made it worse.
it's good that the game is still getting attention from the devs however the size of the lists for things that have, are and still need attention is pretty shocking. I have to say after all the waiting for the game and just how many bugs made it through all the testing my patience is starting to wear thin for the game.

With f1 2015 wheel support confirmed I'm looking forward to comparing the release day quality to pcars. I feel if they get it right it could be enough to last me until ac or gt7 next year.
I'm still hoping for a completed / bug free game I just don't know if it will happen in time. A massive disappointment considering just how good the game is when it's all going good.

Not being in the notes is why I've asked again, unfortunately I haven't seen anything to see when it'll be fixed even though it was acknowledged after the 1st it needed fixing.

Unfortunately it's made the career part of the game unplayable, so we're looking at least waiting another 2 months for a 3rd patch to be tested and released in hope this gets included :(

Hmm I found this was only happening rarely untill this morning. Trying to setup the Capri in career mode, I tricky one and reset every time I went back to the pits. If I watched carefully after hitting hitting the edit setup button my settings wee thee and then changed about one second after screen came up. If workarounds of exiting and re entering or using free practice work this would slow tuning down quite a bit

It is indeed everywhere and frustrating as hell. I will not go through with the career format until this and the controller bugs are stomped out by SMS.
I'll just get better with the controller and learn all he tracks while I'm waiting. Wonderful game, just so many holes....come on lads, (SMS dev's) don't let this stand.
