View Full Version : Pretty, ehm... Dissappointed about the 24 Heures du Mans event on PS4.

20 hours into the 24hr race I let the AI take over to get myself some food and stretch my legs.
When I came back, my PS4 screen was frozen and I could only hear the engine sounds from my speakers/ headset.
I took a picture and whatsapped it to my friends who also own the game.
They said: wait it out, see if you might still get the trophy.
So that's what I did, 4 hours and 10 minutes later (I waited a bit extra, just incase you just go across start/finish and you get in the 24:00:00 timing).

I didn't get anything, so I switched off the PS4 and gave up.

Sad thing is: I haven't touched PCARS ever since.
You may ask: why?
Well... In career I have to redo the entire 24hr because it's saved there and I cannot skip the event.
I did it with full dmg, no assists etc so that's the extra dissapointment

Some proof for you to view/ laugh at (srry the video aint that sharp, all about the sound, basically the same stuff as in the pic):

P.S. the room was ventilated properly, the PS4 stood nowhere near a wall, etc. etc.
It's just unlucky I guess, but I advice anyone to stay away from this trophy for now and get it after all the bugs etc. are fixed.

Try damage your car and skip to end of session? (i know, i know, not the most elegant way for "skipping an event", but it works)

You should be able to reduce the time down to 2 hours in the calendar (at any point in a race you can exit and NOT save, then go back to the calendar and adjust time and difficulty)
