Is it recomended that we reset our wheels and reconfigure when this patch lands like the previous one (well on xbox anyway).

Patches, patches, I don't want patches. Nobody needs patches. Patches are futile.
I don't want to install any patch that isn't shipped on a 5¼ floppy disk.
Wacky Wheels was never patched, and it was a great game with a brilliant AI.

Oh, wait, someone is knocking on my door ...

Great work sms showing pd a thing or two

Totally agree I always thought pcars had the potential to be the best console racing sim on the planet and now with sms and wmd working overtime to get this game right I reckon that potential will come to fruition very soon. Thanks guys really appreciate all the hard work behind the scenes.

Hi Roger

Can I ask about your sig info, especially the part about steam launch options and how they affect the game. Skipcrowds I understand but pthread4 and novr, what are they please.

Cheers

All those are minor bugfixes, nice and all that, but that issue is basicly destoring the Online/Community feature of the game.
So I think its the most important to fix at the moment. Sorry.

I disaggree here. If you have a dedicated racing community, the ppl should be able to respect track boundaries or your regulations/rules concerning that. E.g. "always two wheels inside the track limits" or "the curb is already off-bounds" etc. etc.

Let the peer-group pressure do the work for you by rewarding those driving clean and penalizing those who dont. Create a channel where drivers can raise protests after races. Make penalties visible after that.

Its nothing you can make work over night. But sticking to that will create big benefits for all involved over time. And disconnect you from technical aspects which are and always will be trouble-some...

Just my 2 Cents

Because releasing a patch on the consoles is not as straight forward as it is on PC.

It needs to be submitted and pass certification to Sony or MS first, then it has to wait until the consoles particular store refresh day.

edit : store refresh might just be for DLC though, I am not sure it affects patches.......

No, you are not getting my point. :)
It it the community events / Time Trial, that can be cut to death.

Sorry, I race clean, but seeing someone being 5 seconds faster in 1 sector, and slower in the other two is a joke.
Also I wish to remind everyone, that the game has been delayed 4 times, "to ensure, that there are no bugs/glitches".

And this is not something minor, its a serious issue.

I asked Ian Bell this in PM when i first bought the game (release date) and he said that they could ship the PC updates freely. I took his answer as we arent supposed to wait for the consoles if the PC patch is ready to go out.

Feels like a dickmove to post a print of a PM conversation though but a mod could probably see my PM history and confirm that this is true.

No need for drawn out discussions/conspiracy theories about PC patch release dates/reasons.

If the PC patch is not released yet then there will be a good reason for it.

Maybe a reason that can't be announced (NDAs), maybe one which will become clear after release, maybe nobody will ever know the reason, but it will be a good one and is SMSs decision.

The patch isnt even released yet so is it placebo or are you talking about 1.3? This thread is about 1.4.

ProjectCARSFiend
02-06-2015, 10:49
Don't get me wrong I'm really looking forward to this patch, as it fixes a number of bugs I've been having lately. I'm just curious, why's this patch called Patch 1.4 when it's coming to PS4, and us Ps4 users haven't got Patch 1.3 yet? Not that it really matters, but like I said, I'm just curious.

Robert, can't you read?

We've stated here that not everything is fixed at once. That might seem like a trite statement but after your 40th post on the subject I'm starting to doubt your attention ability.

If all leagues and 'professionals' go on and on and on as you do we'll put dedicated servers down the list. Now give it a rest.

First of all thank you Ian, for that you have spoken to me for 3 years for the first time personally.
I am very honored. :)

And I pardon if I have posted here in the wrong thread (and pardon for my bad english to)

And I'll give me great effort to improve in the future, promised

JessicaWalter

stop basing this on witcher 3 or any other games' patches. there's too many variables (staff size, whether issues were found prior to release, difficulty in fixing issues, etc). they aren't comparable and attemping to do so could lead to false blame or finger pointing when the entire situation is misunderstood by the aggressors

A screenshot of the new shaders in action (before and after) and a short video demonstrating the blur reduction would tide me over until it's released ;)

I'm really looking forward to actually getting to use the PS4 version. I have done apx 1 lap with that version of the game vs 100 hours on XBO (due to not getting on with the blur, AF and shadow issues) so this is a big update that I am eagerly anticipating.

Fingers crossed fixes and features will keep coming in at this pace, perhaps we will see some sliders added to post processing settings too, rather than just on/off ;)

No, these updates are to make them faster in some corners where they were unusually slow. Track cutting maybe adjust later.

I know I'm beating a dead horse with this question, but why the hush hush about legacy Logitech support. No one has done the math on potential project cars.customers. If you calculate the amount of people that might still have a G series wheel, you will see that there is at least 2 million in sales for just the standard game. Another 8 million in consoles. Download content can bring in several million for SMS also. I hope that SMS is aware that there are thousands of gamers who have held off buying this game. I'm one because I refuse to buy a new setup when the one I have in front of me works perfectly fine except for the new gen consoles. Sorry, but I had to vent after reading these forums since it opened. Have a nice day everyone.

Invest in a PC, lol. I have PCs, MACs, Tablets that can handle any new game. I choose to play on my PS. I've been a loyal PS player since day one on all PS consoles. I just wanted answers from a SMS rep, not somebody in this forum that can't provide truthful answers. Lol. It all fine with me, but do not take it upon yourself to represent a company you don't officially work for. And if you did work for them, then you are tarnishing the company reputation with such harsh feedback/remarks. I'm sure the initial investors (kickstart supporters) were not happy with the decision to exclude Logitech wheel support. I have not given up on it regardless of any NDA, but I think it more about kickbacks for console driver support if anything. Logitech is probably struggling to do a comeback and can't kickback to Sony and SMS on the console side.

This is just based on how many people signed the petitions for Logitech support. This could be more or less this late in the game. And based on potential new users that will spend less on a used wheel setup and migrate over to Consoles from PC gaming. This is a new age and not everyone is buying bulky gaming rigs when they can buy an entertainment console that requires little or no maintenance. This is the Plug and Play era. PCs are high maintenance.

Someone also keeps asking about the Fanatec GT3 being 'improved' instead of 'fixed'. It would be hard to improve it if it wasn't fixed, so I thought it would be redundant to state it was fixed AND improved (which sounds like some cheap product marketing campaign). Just for you though - "Fixed several older Fanatec wheel problems, such as the GT2, GT3, and CSR, and improved their default implementation" :)

Again, ALL supported wheels (yes, that includes the Thrustmaster TX) on ALL platforms are improved, and we think that we are very close to parity across all platforms (which is very difficult to achieve because of how differently the platforms communicate with the hardware).

We're not done yet though. As you all report new issues (in a structured and unemotional way ;) ), we will continue to address these as far as possible and release fixes in future patches.

Thanks for the clarification.

I'm just echoing everyone's comments just to say thank you for all the hard work on getting this masterpiece of a game to us as well as this update which from reading the patch notes is going to make it even more of an enjoyable driving and racing experience.

Surely that would mean holding the PC patch back?, there's none of the certification process, which is what takes the time for console patches.

If the console patches gets rejected for more work... then the PC patch would probably benefit, or become relatively different, requiring a patch on an patch.

If I were the devs, I'd build the 3 patches from the one codebase, and then release them together. Until then they can never be sure that the console patches are going to go through.

And make PC users wait until Sony and MS get a move on? Surely not! :grumpy:

We can act like guinea pigs and already have a lead on possible issues by the time it comes to PS4/Xbone. Otherwise we all wait extra weeks and find out at the same moment.

At this point I am just looking forward to the patch for the PC. Hopefully it will be released soon regardless of the consoles approval status. Of course whatever SMS decides on the matter is what it will be and we will get it when we get it.

I agree with using the same code base as much as possible and am sure that is what they are doing but that does not mean they have to be released together. If Sony or MS hold up the patch then it can still be released for the PC if that is what they want to do and if they find that more is required to get it through on the consoles then it just becomes another patch so it would end up being 1.5 but again it is up to SMS what they want to do as far as when to release the PC updates.

So i have one thing to add that was brought to my attention the other night while playing with some friends....
The settings for the controller do not save.... once you have chosen whatever settings you want and then save and leave, once you return to the settings menu the settings have all defaulted to what was there before.
They will stay only for the time you are playing but then when you restart the game and go back to the settings, it has changed your settings back to previous default settings.

Well yes now i do (although i don't really get why you would play racing games on a console if you have a high end PC at home, but to each his own i guess) . Have a nice day too :)

I use my PC for normal things like school work, music production, graphic stuff. Lol same goes for my Macs. iPads for games and communication. Lol. I like to keep things running smooth without conflicts.

Like many others on here i have been critical of pc probably because of the hype surrounding it.Im sure nobody at project cars wanted any of this stuff to happen but it did.I think it has the potential to be the best racing game to date for consoles with the new patch getting the ffb and wheel issues fixed.So im just here to say thanks to ian and everyone involved for stepping out side the box and doing something great!See i wont always complain.Thanks again guys cant wait to get some time in the game!

Because due to the SMS-R series, it's to be released across all platforms simultaneously as it contains some specific bug fixes for the 5th of June event with the Bentley Speed 8, these events are open to both PC and consoles. :-)

I completely agree with this. Any global fixes/gameplay adjustments can be tested by the PC gamers first! So every other patch is PC only and then it gets lumped into the next console patch. This would really speed up feedback that SMS could gather regarding tuning changes such as AI issues. No need to wait every 4-6 weeks for those tuning adjustments.

I think i'm going to make a visit to the garage and write down all the FFB changes i made on 30+ cars. The FFB tweaks in the patch note has me spooked a bit that i will lose hours of work.

Besides, it's always good to have them written down somewhere.

I'm not saying you shouldn't do it, but there were no changes to the FFB you adjust in the setup screen. Only the FFB defualts you see in the controls configuration screen "configure force feedback" section.

Also the AI is still faster than the player when both are on rain tires by 1-3 seconds depending on the car.There's nothing in this patch for that. This patch fixes AI being fast when on slicks in the rain. This is still being balanced with the wear for both the player and AI, along with most player rain tires performing too well in the dry. its been alot of work to get right or close to right, so be a bit more patient. Thanks.

CUTTING TRACK PENALTY FIX:

I humbly request an audience from the developers PLEASE.. I truly LOVE this game and all its potential. However, after investing my time and efforts on practicing, qualifying and racing.. What truly bothers me.. is watching people cutting the track with out any time PENALTIES. Most of the time the game does a great job incorporating penalties.. All though their may be several circuits that need to be fixed, (THE BUGATTI CIRCUT) has a major time penalty failure. Ive noticed that turn 2 on the right side where the track is bright yellow and blue, people cut straight across.. Also, after i believe TURN 6, the green S, or chicane, drivers will cut across it like its a straight S.. please re-evaluate tracks and time PENALTIES.. I believe this feature, along side many other features really sets the bar. As a racing sim, "PROJECT CARS" on console platforms, have no competition but its on reflection. the consumers pay VERY close attention to every detail .. please consider my concerns..

It's amazing what you find out viewing other sub sections.

I'm not one to make stuff up, Ian Bell was quite open with us Xbox One gamers in our sub forum. Also if you look at the SMS events it states a Bentley Speed 8 event starts on the 5th of June.

Also the AI is still faster than the player when both are on rain tires by 1-3 seconds depending on the car.

Yes i notice this, right now i'm on the vintage GT 67 Mk IV challenge on the Road America, opponent skill 50, with controller, on training round with sunny weather, i set fastest lap, but in qualifying with light rain i'm 3 seconds behind and 3th place, i have restartet the qualifing a numerous times, but always end up 3 seconds behind, all the other Ford GT mk IV 67 does not get affected by the slippery surface, brake lenght is shorter than i can do without driving of track and they manage to take the corners much faster than i can do and they never loose grip and no back end slides, they simply drive like the track is dry and with slicks tires on, so for me to have a chance to beat them is to lower the opponent skill to 40 or 30. The same is also for the first Vintage GT 67 Mk IV Challenge, i was fastest on traning and qualifying i dry weather, the race was in light rain and i had no chance to beat them, so i ended up with opponent skill 30 (i won with good margin, so i should set it to 40) after numerous attempts. The qualifying and the race started with rain, so i assume that we all started with rain tires on.

Edit

No, in the first Vintage GT Mk IV Challenge, it started to rain on the end of second lap, i was leading with 5-7 seconds, but when the rain started i had to slow down (not to much) and the opponents was abel to catch up to me and i ended up on 3th place with few seconds behind.

well i dont understand why not.

im not (just) whining; id like an answer bc it doesnt make sense to me. i assume there is an explanation, & that it can be divulged. i think the idea of there being a 'fairness-clause' as far as when patches can be released is unlikely, much less that if there is such a clause, there's an additional clause that it can't be publically acknowledged.

if true, we have publishers manually deciding to hold off hotfixes & other patches that could easily be implemented over steam for...what reason? if developers can't answer, surely someone has a decent grasp as to why, or else this should not be the case.

i agree that illogical things shouldn't just happen.

Good news, Assetto Corsa will be available on consoles next year, I am fed up with this buggy game and at sms they are not even capable to make a patch that is not crashing the game. This game is not optimized and making my console hot like a microwave oven. I am not using this game now, it is even becoming boring.
PS4 games should not be distributed with company having so little budget. You cannot do something good when you have just 4M dollars. However, we are a lot buying this game so SMS should have provide us more features and a finished game.

It is implemented in the game, if you start a race your tires are alreadt heated up (green).

Not in practice sessions tho.

Report back on how that track roster is doing. Let us know how good the dynamic time of day and dynamic weather is rolling. Let us know how the pitstops are improving the experience. I'm sure the AI will put us to shame. Let me know how the dynamic per second and per race weekend 'Live Track' is functioning.

Just mentioning this as you are asking for more features in pCARS...

Enough please.

Lobbies that are hosted further away (and therefore have potentially worse latency to all peers) appear at the bottom of the browser, and are colour coded with yellow or orange icons do indicate the quality of the connection.

Bandai manages the distribution but has no saying on the game design. That's why they're not a publisher like EA for example (who dictate their devs everything) but a distributor.

if the patch was due 5th June, this crash bug was probably found by MS/Sony

i'll pick it up on a steam sale in the future

Really big patch there, and the motion control option for the DS4! I didn't see that coming.
I can finally use my non-compatible, non-functional, 13 year old thrustmaster wheel by duct-taping the DS4 to it.

Now I just have one wish for the game. Since we can't customize them in the consoles, it would be great if we had the ability to choose our helmets (from the default ones) and stick with it in career/free race/online instead being chosen randomly.

Anyway, thanks for the patch, hope it comes out soon.

I don't understand why it is all been done in one big one?

Maybe someone could enlighten me as to why it is done this way almost a month after release. There are some more important bugs that would require more urgent attention than some others. Ie. Fanatec wheels all working (as well as some of the TM wheels) as this was an important point for many who still can not use them. Or the Le mans 24h pit glitch as examples.

These could/should of been addressed earlier as many peoples "customer satisfaction" rests on some more of these points, rather than some minor fixes to cars and tracks that could be changed later.

Surely if it is down to money, saving money, customer satisfaction comes first so you have people to continue investing in the game? (DLC, PCars 2 etc.)

This isn't a whine (or i hope doesn't comes across as one) but more an enquiry of why it was done this way. The reasons for it?

On a positive, i like the game and continue to play, keep up the good work. :)

Should racing games not learn from what has gone before?

This isn't a critique to you as i hardly can judge you without knowledge. But as many of us on here and part of the development team that created this game must have played other racing titles from generations back, but to make a point ill use more recent titles, Ie. Forza series, GT Series, Iracing. They all have online lobbies as to where anyone can join some race or another in a public room. And anyone that knows or has played forza would know for the majority it is okay in terms of fairness, but there are some who just want to wreck or feel unjust about an overtaking move and seek revenge on the rest of the field. But forza counter this is some aspects by ghosting the car when stationary or when going the wrong way around the track. In PCars that doesn't happen and for the life of me i can't understand why. It aids to the wreckers, by going the wrong way or as a major complaint stopping on the apex of said corner causing accidents.

So why not learn from past games and take on feedback that, ghosting cars is a start but build on that to further enhance fair and equal racing. Like that of Iracing of a Safety Rating. It's not perfect but it's a start and it builds on previous attempts. Otherwise every racing game is going to follow the same suit and online will be full of people wrecking as you said, "ANY". PCArs has gone backwards for online lobbies not forwards and that is the biggest gripe.

A ghost driving the wrong way around the track is still spoiling the racing experience for everyone else in the lobby though. My point was, if you value clean, fair and sensible online racing, then use the dedicated thread on this forum to find like-minded people in private lobbies, and avoid racing with random people at all costs.

But less so than being taken out and forced to retire or crawl around cause your car doesn't go in a straight line?

And i agree with you, for the best kind of racing you do want private lobbies or championships to enter, fully agree. But they are not always around or viable. My point is though with a proper setup public lobbies shouldn't be allowed to be turned into smash fest, that people have to resort to private lobbies.

And i agree with you, for the best kind of racing you do want private lobbies or championships to enter, fully agree. But they are not always around or viable. My point is though with a proper setup public lobbies shouldn't be allowed to be turned into smash fest, that people have to resort to private lobbies.

I'm not sure how that could ever work though. Ghosting when stopped or reversing would do nothing to stop hairpin rams or side-swipes.
Project CARS is supposed to match-make and filter players by some kind of 'online reputation' system but I'm not sure how effective it is yet. It sounds like one of those algorithms that gets more accurate and more effective the more it is used.

If we didnt nag, we wouldnt show how much we care :) I was thinking it'd be ready by this weekend for some reason. Thanks for letting us know though! Its easier once expectations are communicated.

And yes we know not to expect it exactly in 2 weeks. Coding is hard. Mods please dont hit me

It doesn't, but it stops some of the things that happen now, it's building on things that we have see before not removing them. All that does it make everyone want it back. I want this game to be a success but when it's as accessible as it is for £40 you will get some more less mature players compared to shelling out 100's for iracing. We just need to build not remove.

This is not really the thread for it but I would like to chime in for a second on the matter.
Allowing an option to turn off collisions in online lobbies works pretty well in Forza. Two levels of ghosting would be even better one where collisions are just off and another option where a car ghosts if stopped in road, going wrong way. re-entering track or if a car closing from behind is going a lot faster. The variable ghosting would be a lot more work to enable but would be a nice option if it were there.

I like that idea. If I could add my 2 cents in, make it so if one driver is over lapping the others ghost, then the amount of time he's over lapping gets added to his lap time. At the end of the race of he has "x" amount of those penalty seconds he loses one position from where he finished. But at the same time rubbing, bumping, and crashing is part of racing. Though I wouldn't mind seeing those demolition type drivers to have their cars blow up in a violent explosion. Sorry mods, I got off the topic. Can't wait for the patch release. Very excited here!!

Controls – All platforms
* Fixed pedals and triggers that vibrates during replays.
* Fixed an issue that causes the wheel centring spring to be active during driving.
* Improved force feedback strength and tweaked the default force feedback parameters for all supported wheels based on community feedback.
* Further enhancements to the steering feeling – Improved blending between the tyre force spring and the steering lock spring.
* Improved behaviour of the wheel force springs while navigating the menu system.


Can we have hope for some improvements in mouse steering in future patch? For mouse players game is still unplayable :(

This game will die before it gets to where it should be unfortunately, by the time its all sorted other games
will release and soon Pcars will become a distant memory. A shame because I was loving it but the bugs and
idiots that play demolition derby kill it.
Im starting to think the same thing. Some of the bugs are bringing my career to a stop and many of my friends who had it, have already traded it in. Some of the major racing sites have also postponed their events too. Anyway good luck with the next patch. One more thing, will we be seeing any DLC soon? Or is it on hold until the games fixed?

To tell the truth and I hate to say it but I'm getting a little bored of it. In all games I prefer Career Mode over online and now I can't continue my career. And solo races isn't cutting it for me. I'm trying my best to be patient.

I am the same tbh. Me and a few mates have a wheel setups etc all ready for this game and all of us have played and kinda given up at this stage. Not played for a while now.

I really hope this wont effect the game in the long run though, must be hard for the devs as it's out of their hands now. But the quicker this path comes then the better it will be for the game and it's community.

Could you practise the upcoming events in quick race, reproducing the class/time and location? Just a thought, might keep you going for a bit, and when career is fixed you'll be race fit.

Do you mean the time attack community event? Being that it doesn't record your time I've only tried it once. Is this a race or time attack? This is a good idea and I guess that'll keep me busy until it's fixed though I understand that this fix is not included in patch 1.4. Please correct me if I'm wrong

I think there are ways to be productive even if you choose to put your career on hold while things are being sorted out. I'm spending time learning tracks I'm not familiar with, learning and tuning cars that I'll need, trying to dial in my FFB settings and things like that. And as long as I don't run into a lot of rain, there are things I can get done in career mode too. If you can't find something productive to do while you wait, you aren't trying hard enough.

Another question. If I tune and save will I have that saved tune in the actual event?

I can't do anything in career mode as I'm stuck in an invitational. Practice was fine but now I'm in qualifying and it's not holding the tune for the car or FFB.

I believe that tunes are saved for each car and for each track or you can choose to save for all tracks. So my approach is to develop a good generic tune for a particular car and save it for all tracks. Then for each track, I'll apply specific tweaks to the generic tune that are saved just for that track.

I'm thinking that if you could find out the details of one of the events coming up in your career, i.e. 15 lap GT4 race at Monza, June 2015, 2pm start, then you could recreate exactly the scenario in quick race weekend, so you can learn the track, car, overtaking points etc so that when you do get to do that race in career you'll be shit hot already, kind of like Rene Rast using pCars to practise real tracks, only you'd be using pCars to practise, well, pCars.
You could probably find out from the forum what the weather conditions are for that event (unless it's randomly generated, don't know)
Just a thought really, might work.

FFB is the main issue for me tbh. My mate has a t300 which the center spring is on all the time. I have a T100 which I can turn the center spring off, but I basicly feel no understeer etc. I was having great fun using the controler with great hopes of how things would be with the wheel, then got my wheel setup sorted and it's so disapointing.

Ahh well. Tbh I bet the devs are more frustrated than us, I feel for them I really do. If it was up to them I bet we would have the patch by now.

I won't give up, the game aint going anywhere. Give it time, gona be the best racing game for many years. Just need some patience.

Yep, this is exactly what i'm doing right now. I'm learning the tracks and learn to drive with all the cars.

Forgetting day 1 patch, waiting 5-6 weeks post launch for relatively fundamental fixes on the PC is a bit excessive. I'm really looking forward to continuing my career but I can't help but feel like any time I put into the game now will do more to bug me than feed my further interests.

But I have some hope that "2 weeks" is directed at consoles and not PC.

Actually it's only PS4 that has only had 1 patch!! That was the release day patch. It is annoying that we've had nothing until 1.4, but the wait will be worth it.
Keep up the good work Ian and the team.
