Hi all,

In anticipation of the imminent release of the XBox One patch, here are the final release notes.


Project CARS – Xbox One Patch 1.4 – Release Notes

General
* Pagani Monza Club day invitational event – no longer causes the game to crash when using a specific livery on the Pagani Huayra.

Performance improvements
* Various performance optimizations, adding up to an average of 5-6% performance improvement. This results in an overall smoother experience.

Physics & AI
* The AI loss of grip that results from tyre degradation as a result of wear is now more noticeable.
* The AI will now show much more realistic grip loss when running on slick tyres in the rain.
* First pass improvements on various tracks to enhance the AI performance and ability (Azure Circuit, Donington GP, Watkins Glen, Bathurst, Nordschleife).

Pitting, tuning, setups
* Fixed an issue where certain street cars would pit for tyre change during rain when they already had the correct tyres fitted.
* Fixed an issue where custom vehicle setups were lost when progressing through sessions.
* Improved the system used to select the most appropriate tyres based on current and predicted weather conditions.
* Ensure that the AI always pit when they need to change tyres based on the weather conditions.
* The Default strategy will now correctly show the tyres that will be fitted on the player vehicle during a pit stop.
* The pit stop routine will no longer start during online races until the player closes the pit stop menu. This ensures that the player has enough time to select or configure an appropriate set of actions before the pit crew start working on the car.
* Tyre pressures will now be correctly set when the player changes to a new set of tyres.
* The currently-active Pit strategy will now remain in action when advancing through race sessions.

Online
* Fixed an issue where the player was sometimes given a large time penalty when exiting the pit lane.
* Fixed an issue where the remaining session time displayed an incorrect value in the Tuning screen.
* Fixed an issue that at times would prevent a player from entering a race, after joining a second online lobby.
* Fixed an issue where the Track Location popup would at times appear on some screens.
* Fixed an issue where matchmaking was not filtering the race length correctly.

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.

Tracks
* Bathurst – removed cones in the pit lane that was causing cars to get stuck.
* Watkins Glen – fixed a number of accuracy issues around the track.
* 24 Heures du Mans – improved the race line at a few corners to keep the LMP cars off the curbs as this was causing the cars to lean over on two wheels.
* Silverstone National – vehicle grid placement reworked to more closely align with the painted start boxes.
* Hockenheim (various layouts) – reworked the wet weather reflection mapping to address incorrect object reflections.
* Willow Springs – fixed an issue where the vehicle could drive through the barriers when exiting the pits.

GUI
* Driver Network Profile – visual tidy up to improve usability.
* Fixed an issue where very thin lines would not always appear.
* Added support for better info display on the Community Events page.
* Fixed an issue where HUD customization was not saved on exiting a session.
* Fixed an issue where the Potential Lap time display on the Lap Info board would be inconsistent with the sector times being displayed.
* Monitor / Spectate Mode – fixed an issue where the vehicle being viewed would automatically reset to the player’s vehicle on leaving the monitor screen.

Vehicles
* Adjusted handbrake strength on vehicles which are equipped with handbrakes.
* Fixed an issue where the rain wipers’ state did not reset correctly when restarting a session.
* Fixed an issue where light glows from a vehicle behind the player would sometimes appear in front of the player.
* Fixed fuel pressure gauge calibration in several cars.
* Fixed an issue where a white border would at times appear around the brake light glow of certain cars.
* Ford Mk.IV – improved the collision model to prevent vehicles wedging in under other vehicles.
* Formula Gulf, Gumpert Apollo, Formula Rookie – fixed an issue with the livery sets that caused the livery selection to display wrong liveries.
* Lykan Hypersport – statistics updated to latest manufacturer specification.
* Lotus 72D – improved handing characteristics, exposed bump stops to be adjustable in the vehicle setup, reduced cold sensitivities of the slick tyres, adjusted the AI speed, wear and rain tires to match the player’s experience.
* Karts – reworked the Karts optimization to help address performance drops with a lot of Karts on track.
* McLaren 12C GT3 – adjusted the vehicle pose to more closely match the real car.
* BMW M3 GT4 – improved the accuracy of the levels at which the oil and water temperature warning lights will activate.
* Ford Escort RS1600 – improved the collision and wheel contact model to prevent climbing over other cars in collisions.
* 250cc Superkart – improved the default setup to address controller issues on higher speed tracks, and improved the AI handling.
* Lotus 49 – improved the AI handling of the vehicle in corners and in close racing.
* Pagani Huayra - reduced fuel consumption to around 3mpg in hard track use, and improved cooling to prevent engine overheating.

FFB works fine SMS :applause:

i use TX xBoxOne
- i keep bManiac ( at the letter ) calibrate parameters
- i decrease the general FFB to 50 % (100 before on 1.3 )
- i increase only scales for FxysM and SOP ( the two are largely under than 100 ) on my personnal car ffb parameters
- i don't change anything on my personnal FxyzM/SoP values

it's just awsome.

about fps and even the handling sensations, as i can see and as you say this results in an overall smoother experience. :friendly_wink:

I think something is going on when you reset the wheel. when I first started the game the ffb was strong in the menus like 100% what it should be but after the reset it went back to what it was before. I'm still running 100% ffb its better but something isn't right I recommend not resetting your wheels.

Tried with no settings change with 1.4 and force feedback was to strong to even turn the wheel so reset everything and re-entered bManic settings with turning down force feedback to 50 and is all good apart from straight lines with this shaking. Even when car is stationary the wheel goes nuts!

I just want decent settings. Is that too much to ask? Forza 5 is so much better now and before 1.4 it was pCars was better... :(

Put your FFB back to 100 & lower Tire FFB instead. You lowered the wrong one. I'm not saying that will fix your shaking/going nuts. But if FFB is to strong, you lower Tire FFB.

Just reset your wheel settings in main menu (press y) and leave everything standard.
If ffb to strong, lower tire ffb. I use the Jack Spade's classic settings in garage menu per car.
Best ffb i ever used. Much better than Forza 5 !!

There is a factor of 10 bug in the tire force, you actually need to drop it to to get back to the 1.3 levels. The oscillation should then stop. PC version has the big too.

Where to start the tyres at default were slicks when it was raining and the ai cars are just taking the piss waving at me like they don't have any tire issues,when I accelerate out of a corner the bloody lotus 98 is just a bar of soap on ice totally unplayable. Even the ruf gtr spins off track Laguna seca with just a tiny bit of throttle and the funniest thing of all is the driving aids are all on. I have been patient having owned this game from day one but now I just think wmd and sms talk a good talk but cannot even develop a game that's enjoyable. I could go on but I think you get my drift PCARS is now officially shite.

Im gutted, gutted I pressed A when prompted to install update. Yesterday after finally getting around to using Jack Spades FFB settings I was in love with pCars at last. I felt like a driving God, purposely getting out of shape because I had that much feel through my TX I could tidy up just about any kind of slide. Now switch to today, what can I say? Im gutted because what I had yesterday is gone. After spending 4 and half hours re calibrating and then trying to reconfigure the FFB to feel at least a little like yesterday I finally get into a race. Qualifying BMW M1, FFB is bearable even though the slightest braking on turn requires more force than my tired been driving a truck all day arms could muster. Steerings not to bad though apart from if your stood still you cant move it (centering spring?). So then I set my HUD and go on to the race. First thing I notice is my HUD has reverted back to default, then I start the race but now the steering is wobbling like crazy when Im cornering! What is going on? Someone plz help me Im going insane, Im spending 99% of my time in settings just to try and make my experiance enjoyable. Dont know what to do. The thought of going back to Forza gives me the willies but at least Id be in a race rather than a menu.

No I believe you are completely wrong. that is just how it was worded. the game did not originally run like this.. my pc version does not do this... I believe there is more confusion about this then anything. it was gone over in other threads I see why you make the mistake now. I think this is why people are having wobbles driving straight as well (just a complete guess).

ya and I used them and I spent 20 mins swapping the commands around. why do you think it was brought up on that thread by me in the first place? Because I didn't want them to be like that I wanted them to be original like the main game on pc so did many other people.

incase you don't understand he was answering a two part question on post 50 that is about the xml files....

All those having problems with ffb did you make sure you carried out a hard reset of your console by pressing the Xbox button on the console for 5 seconds. Did you then reset your wheel in the controls menu and recalibrate the wheel and pedals. I use a TX on Xbone and my ffb is working just fine on default settings.

are you getting a wobble in the wheel driving straight or at a stop? do you have stiff ffb at a stop?

It's installing now. I don't see anything the notes that fixes the issue if your save file gets too big it gets corrupted. i.e. if you try to save your 2 hour Le Mans replay, which I did like an idiot and lost my entire first complete season saved profile - it won't even download and install from the Xbox Live cloud. Only recourse after two days was to "delete everywhere" and start from scratch. Obviously I'll never save another replay. Is a fix for this coming in the next update?

Im gutted, gutted I pressed A when prompted to install update. Yesterday after finally getting around to using Jack Spades FFB settings I was in love with pCars at last. I felt like a driving God, purposely getting out of shape because I had that much feel through my TX I could tidy up just about any kind of slide. Now switch to today, what can I say? Im gutted because what I had yesterday is gone. After spending 4 and half hours re calibrating and then trying to reconfigure the FFB to feel at least a little like yesterday I finally get into a race. Qualifying BMW M1, FFB is bearable even though the slightest braking on turn requires more force than my tired been driving a truck all day arms could muster. Steerings not to bad though apart from if your stood still you cant move it (centering spring?). So then I set my HUD and go on to the race. First thing I notice is my HUD has reverted back to default, then I start the race but now the steering is wobbling like crazy when Im cornering! What is going on? Someone plz help me Im going insane, Im spending 99% of my time in settings just to try and make my experiance enjoyable. Dont know what to do. The thought of going back to Forza gives me the willies but at least Id be in a race rather than a menu.

I have to agree with this the as I have tried all evening to find a setup that works after having great ffb using jack Spades settings. Tonight ffb is way to heavy, massive wobble on wheel going in straight line and when turning wheel feels like it is clicking round.

I have reset and calibrated each time when changing settings.

Only thing not done is to use default settings which I will try tomorrow as to demoralised to try tonight

Was in the same boat for the first hour in game. Good idea to take a break. If you haven't read through this thread - 1.4 ffb. (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?31743-1-4-ffb) A lot of help in there.

Since the patch, had engine blowing in the Porsche, sorry, RUF doesnt matter how gentle I am, and its in career mode, (Default setup too!) looks like I have to throw the race to advance. Bug ? Happens every time, tried maybe 10 times now.

Strange to read there are 2camps after the 1.4 patch now. First camp say, the FFB is horrible. Second camp say, the FFB is amazing now..
How can this be?

It became significantly stronger by default. Some people love strong FFB, for others it's a problem.

The important thing is it has changed so everyone needs to be aware of the change.

I wrote down all my wheel, paddle and FFB settings and I noticed with both patches some of the settings changed after downloading. After 1.4 patch I changed them back again, except for FFB which I had to turn down to 80 and tire force [or something like that] to 95. Wheel and FFB are working just great now like before.

I had a couple problems last night which i managed to resolve in a couple easy steps.

1st FFB on Thrustmaster TX

Was incredibly strong when i first switched on my xbox. But i did a reset of the controller setting and entered everything again and now its the same if not a little stronger then before. I have also turn down the FFB master scale and SOP Scale per car from 50-60 down to 30-40. Have got tons more feel in the car then before. Big thumbs up here :yes:

2nd Whenever i left the pit be it in MP or SP the game would crash me back to dashboard.

Tried a hard reset of my xbox which it happened again twice, then before i was about to delete the game and reinstall i deleted my save game went back in and all plays fine.

Hope this helps anybody having any probs.


3rd Thing I noticed when in game. You go to friends and come back into the game, the DOR on my wheel had reset back to 900 DOR everybody on my friends list is also having the same probem. Is this known and is there a fix coming out for it?

My TX wheel has the latest Firmware and is calibrated on PC and on game.

Dude you have got real damage on you will need to watch your engine temps otherwise you will blow your engine. Optimum engine temp is around 100 Celsius if you start creaping over that then you will overheat and blow your engine.

In the tuning setup under differential i think is a radiator setting, open that to 70% or more (depending on track) then your engine will be fine.

Ok after many hours last night i managed to get the tx wheel working with good FFB on xb1 with patch 1.4.

After installing patch, hard reset your console (hold xbox button on console for 10 seconds)
make sure you have the latest firmware installed on the tx wheel via pc
start pCars, reset all wheel settings with Y
calibrate the wheel, full 900 degrees
leave FFB setting at default but turn down Tire Force to 75. leave FFB at 100 as this is for the dynamic range of the overall FFB to the wheel.
use Jack Spades car FFB settings http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?24582-Universal-FFB-Settings-for-XB1-PS4-Spreadsheet I am using the classic settings.

the FFB is different and you have to get used to it, i.e. you now get a lot more FFB when turning into corners when breaking. which is a lot more realistic

i just wish more instructions were supplied by SMS on how to setup everything and more information on the settings on the GUI to explain in layman's terms what affects changing individual settings would do

from what i see, almost EVERYONE is recommending Jack Spades car FFB settings, why cant SMS implement these into the game with allowing quick change between the 4 different settings in the spreadsheet (Fy+SopLateral - Classic - 66% - Bumps Plus. but named better) as well as allowing individual settings to be changed as it is now for even more tweaking if that's what the player wants to do.

i will admit the FFB is better now, so much more realistic but it does take time to get used to but SMS, please improve the GUI to allow easier configuration of default setting groups as a whole evening spent in just setting up a wheel is a little over the top IMO. Thumbs up to SMS but could do better with GUI and settings management

I played online the whole evening yesterday without having any issues. Different cars on different tracks with a whole 16 car grid (AI and friends mixed) with qualifiying and 10 laps lasting races. No lobby crashes, no returns to dashboard or main menu.

So other than the career menu GUI update, the biggest change I notice in this release is the force feedback on my Thrustmaster TX is much, much better on the default settings. I used to have to jack every car up from 26 to 100 FF to get any decent feel, but now the 26 car setting (when used with the default wheel ff calibration settings) seems about right for all the cars I've tried.

All the other issues noticeable to me with Project CARS are still there, however - engine audio will randomly "stick", shudder during a shift and remain that way until the next shift; rain or dusk racing can have framerate issues (particularly on Brands Hatch) so I'm not really seeing any "performance" updates here.

Had a new issue that I'd never seen before the 1.4 patch, I hit skip to end of session after I got the qualifying time I was looking for and then the screen was stuck with "simulating session" and a huge spinning clock in the center of the screen (usually you see that for a split second). After 5 minutes I exited to Xbox Home and then quit the game via the menu button. Mercifully my profile was still intact and I just had to do that qualifying session over again. I did some googling and see some folks on the PC game are reporting the same issue occasionally. Has only happened to me once so far, but after losing my entire season profile and have to start from square one again, I'm nervous about anything that makes me quit this game when it locks up.

Have you done a hard reset after the update?

20-06-2015, 13:18
Hi guys, girls.
Downloaded 1.4 and did hard reset Xbone. As a controller user I cannot changed the settings, it gos back to last car settings saved after resetting all ?
Also when in car setup mode/ pits all setting are in metric and no matter what suspension setting I give ( no change on figures NMS ) a car it's like driving a bucket full of jelly along a fence.
All cars are 4 wheel drifting into corners with tyre smoke, then understeer.

Any ideas People !!! ????? thanks

bluesky0870
20-06-2015, 13:29
Go to the controller setup menu, press Y, change the button config to your likes again and choose your preferred driving mode (mostly mode 3) and try to drive again. If that shouldn't work you can uninstall the game, restart from system menu to clear the cache, reinstall the game, install all dlc content, restart the xb1 again, start the game, install the update, restart the xb1 again and than start the game - choose the preferred steering mode and button config, jump in your preferred car and try to drive again.
Now the car should be as drivable as expected.

tried all. RESET all ( Y ) Unistalled GAME - DLC's - Saved Game on Console. REINSTALL GAME - DLC's - UPDATES.

The Road cars are the worse for handling. Suspension like big American Cars soft dampers, springs and sway bars.
Under power the rear of the car bottoms out causing sparks.
You have to aim the car at a corner to then 4 wheel drift to apex then you get understeer.
Even race cars are soft suspensions and grip. Spend more time adjusting steering as wants to go left or right on its own on straights.
None of the car settings changes anything. Even tried radical controller settings but no luck or differance.

Will hav to scroll through the Forum to see if any one else has this issue. Thanks again

Yes this game has some issues but for me the positives outweight the negatives. The most pleasing aspect of Project Cars has to be the tyre physics which are sensational.

The potential in this game is huge and I know in time it will become the benchmark for all other console racing games.

You're doing a great job, even after release.

Actually bother me currently only two bugs:
the in-game chat not working and the pit stops were still too many bugs. I mean both problems are already known, but is there already information when they are fixed?

It would be really great if these two problems could be solved soon (perhaps 1.5 ??) or on your priority list a piece might get stuck up.

Parking the sound stutter and the occasional speed up and slow down of image, after this patch (and before) this game is trully a steller title. Never have I had such fun running in 16 or 17th in a race before. I have managed to make the transition from using automatic gears to manual. Whilst in previous games I have detested endurance racing including LMP1 cars as I just couldn't handle them or the night sequences. This weekend I managed to complete the 24hrs (on 2 hours) for the pretty much the first time I can remember in a racing game and finished top of LMP2. The response you get back from the wheel is pretty much indiscribale. This game is really a top draw attraction, I havn't touched my go to game of Fifa and the disc has been in the Xbox since day one.

Great work guys and can't wait for the improvements to come.

As I don’t know where to put this bug that someone on your team to tell me "ok we will have a look," I try my luck here. Since the update with the patch 1.4, there is a problem in the Sonoma community event, the bug existed before in time trial but was much less frequent, therefore it is for me a regression due the patch or a problem on this track with the BAC Mono on this mode (but before patch 1.4 on time trial with same track same car I don't have the issue much frequent).
When you quit the event after set a clean (or not) lap the game is frozen, and the result is that the time is not registered. From my side I have no problem when I do not touch anything before, but if I change the car settings or those of the steering wheel, I reproduce it every time. Others think it comes from the delay in the confirmation, wait a few minutes before confirming the fact that we want to leave the race.
Being professionally in a QA team, I can give you some findings to rule out:
- It does not come from the box or the digital version of release (reproduced by different users on the 2 versions)
- It does not come from dlc
- It does not come with a bandwidth problem
- It does not come from the wheel or controller
I think the concern comes from the backup that blocks because I never see the icon flashing when I reproduce it, and that is when I called earlier in the backup (car settings / wheel) that I’ve the issue. Maybe there is a timeout that explains why some people don’t have the issue when they wait few minutes before leaving the event.
I am ready to give you my help to test different actions to help you play and understand the issue if needed.

Regards,

Fred.

Yes i can confirm these bugs. in-game chat not working for me and all of my friends too. And Pit Stops are more buggy than it was before Patch 1.4. Now it is like playing Roullete when going into Pits. You get the wrong tyre very often, the car doesn´t get refueled or at least not like I set it up in the Pit strategy. Damage get not repaired also. Please fix this soon, because we, as a german sim racing forum for xbox one, want to do league racing and serious events. But with all the bugs it´s not possible to do that.
