Hi on Friday 31st July the 20th driver network community event (Nordschleife group 5 extravaganza) opened up and like all other events since launch I participated in this event and the trophy description states "Participated in 20 Driver Network Community Events" let the trophy did not unlock, I have valid times within the top 3000 of all these events so my question is has anyone else suffered the same issue?

People have reported the same issue on Xbox One: http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?36280

I'm on PC, and the Community Ambassador achievement has not unlocked for me either. (I'm not 100% certain that I've completed its requirements, but I think I have.)

...Edit: I just counted my entries in-game (PC) on the Community Event leaderboards & I've run 20 of them, which is the number of Driver Network Community Events required in the description for the Community Ambassador achievement/trophy.

It seems to be an issue affecting all platforms at the moment. There's quite a few people reporting the same issue so your not alone.

I'm having trouble with this too, it would be great to have an update from SMS on whether this might get tweaked (i.e lower the number of events) patched- to make it more reliable, offer an in-game counter for how many community events you've actually completed (as some times drop off because of this bizarre showing of only the top 3000 times- far from ideal for a game that sold several million) or offer far more events per month to complete.

One thing worth bearing in mind is many of the trophies/achievements specify a particular amount, say 50 wins, but in many cases I've had so far you need to go over the number needed by 1 for the achievement to pop. So in the case of community events you may actually need 21 not 20.

Here's hoping!

Yes that is correct but people have now done 21 events and still have not received the trophy and it's happening on all formats of the game (PS4, XB1 and PC) so it appears that the game needs a new patch that recognises the 20 participations, here is more proof on people not getting the trophy after 21 events http://www.playstationtrophies.org/forum/project-cars/266225-trophy-community-ambassador-13.html
Reply #123 is the start of the 21st community event participation

How can the game recognize 20 participations if the times are not recorded in the leaderboard...

You have no entry for this event...

It's an online save feature, which means the game will save your data no matter how fast or slow you are, it will even save replay data no by a simple definition a counter embedded into the trophy data should count each event as a singularity upon you exiting the community event and returning to the main menu and it should do this upto the required 20 event participations at which point the trophy should unlock but alas it has not unlocked for most people, I have registered valid top 3000 times in all community events upto event 21 sms-r snetterton 300 yet no trophy for me.


So the developers need to release a patch that recognises the 20 participations to unlock the trophy.

And for some reason, previous events like Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster - Azure Coast and Ford Zakspeed Capri Group 5 - Nurburgring are not getting saved in our ghost files despite the times showing up in the leaderboards. Most people on that forum are having the exact problem as me.

Alright then...more bad news again. So a new patch released and with it, came a new community event. I completed this event, my time showed on the leaderboards and this time, I counted 20 ghost files and the trophy still hasn't unlocked.

Im in the same boat, i have over 20 valid laps in over 20 unique events and i have over 20 top 3000 times, also to top it off i have 20 ghost data laps but its all to no avail as the trophy still does not unlock

14-08-2015, 22:45
Same problem here. I have completed valid laps on 22 events, and I have all the ghost files to prove it. The trophy has not unlocked. I hope an SMS employee can shed some light on this issue

Some people managed to unlock this trophy today with the platinum, while others didn't including me. I played 23 events including today's event, I have 22 ghost files, I'm only shown on 8 leaderboards though.

yes...i agree........devs need to update us on this issue.....same here for me i have done over 20 events and ambassador trophy still not unlocking...this is the only trophy i require for platinum......(i would also like to know why this trophy was even included in the first place...(20 events to be entered which takes months....imo this shud have been a few weeks at most...or even more events every week)......i even bought a playstation plus account so i could complete the game 100%....not to mention all those 100s of hours and time i have invested in project cars...... this issue needs to be fixed and acknowledged by the devs.....otherwise i have been sold a faultly product......because when i buy a game....i should at least have the chance to complete it 100%...full stop

I wonder if the actual trophy unlock is some mistaken absurd number log to pop instead of simply 20? I'll giggle.

Maybe 200? 2,000? 200,000? Maybe even 2,000,000

According to this, 25 people have unlocked it, most of them got it this week, so its definately possible but obviously glitched because probably hundreds or thousands of people have been doing the same thing without unlocking it. Whats causing it is hard to say, and thats why I would like SMS to comment on it.

I messaged one of those guys and asked how he did it and he just said every time a new one was available he went in and set 1 valid lap and then quit, that was it. About the same as me, except I have been driving and driving making 100% sure I made it into the top 3000 before I quit. He also said he skipped the events requiring dlc because he thought they cost too much. I bought them hoping this process would go even faster but it did definately not. I really hope thats not the issue here, that the dlc events have screwed up the trophy. That would make me furious if I have paid for a glitch essentially.

Further from what you said, I am wondering whether the DLC events count towards the trophy?

Who knows? At this point I'm not even sure if the devs know.

The first two guys who unlocked it got it on july 31st, which would mean the dlc events count since the 20th event including dlc was avalable that day. Unless SMS have deleted some of the earlier events.

I managed to platinum this last night and I have done every community event since the release of the game.
I knew I had done 20 Community events about a week ago and went back to check but some of the ones that
I posted a time with now says "no set time for this event" (or something like that). Anyway I did another and
the trophy (as well as the Plat) popped even before the screen went back to the standings screen

Good for you mate and congrats it takes a lot of work!, lets not take away the fact though a lot of us have done 20+ events and it ain't unlocked- hoping SMS can take a look into this amongst their no-doubt huge workload :)

that would be great fun online...haha

The recent Horsepower pack is well worth a look on Driveclub, the P1 GTR, Ferrari FXX K and Evoluzione are superb.

As for this trophy I'm praying for a resolution :)

I will probably go full ape shit. Somewhere between orang utan and mountain gorilla. You have been warned. :nightmare:

It's up to 34 people that have earned it. It seems to be working for some, and it's just recently started picking up steam...

I wonder if maybe they lost/deleted results from some of the earlier events so they didn't count? Or perhaps it *IS* dependent on being in the top 3000 results at the conclusion of the event?

I suspect the latter is the case... but either way, yes... it'd be nice to know for sure.

It can't be because I am in top 3000 in all 23 events and I have not got the trophy. Also, one of the guys who unlocked the trophy said he just drove one valid lap and then quit. He didn't bother about how good the time was, but he got the trophy. I don't think the trophy actually checks the leaderboard, because the trophy should pop when you quit the event and the game registered it as your 20th event. It takes a while before the leaderboard updates your time.

Ok, if you have 23 entries showing in the results *AFTER* the events have closed, than that idea is out.

As for the other person doing one lap and quitting, that doesn't mean it wasn't a valid competitive lap. Maybe they can put down a top 3k lap first try... Most of my entries are my first lap, with the exception of Formula A (ugh, I always end up backwards!).

Guys I think it is quite obvious that this trophy is broken/glitchy, with well over a million PS4 sales of the game if it was working we would be talking of hundreds, maybe thousands having it by now not 34, not to mention the achievement appears to be having similar issues on other platforms.

The request from myself and others is for the devs to take a look at it amongst their very busy schedules because it looks like it is gonna be a platinum stopper for some and that's really not great because A LOT of players really enjoy getting the trophies/achievements and it never goes down well in the community (see Codemasters Grid debacle as an example).

It would be great to know first what the actual requirement is, it suggests you just need to register 1 valid time but is this the case? Further to that a potential fix/ clarification of the conditions required or perhaps a reset and reduction of the events required would be superb.

This bug is already on the "known issues" thread for PS4, but it wasn't linked to a discussion. I suggested that they add this thread in case they want to come back here for further reading.

just an update guys..... i have just posted a clean time on latest event....and guess what.....still no trophy....an absolute joke at this stage.....i have paid good money for a playstation plus account just for this game...not to mention time and effort i put in too....over last few months

do devs seriously expect me to pay more money for a new content....when original games doesn't even work

i think its a disgrace they wont even comment or acknowledge this issue........and think it doesn't matter to us.....like we will just go away......well i expect to be able to complete the game 100%

yeap...i wont be buying new dlc....until this issue is sorted out....and i suspect lots others wont either....

I know, I noticed that early on so I have used them to keep track of how many I had completed. Whats weird though is that I have 24 unique lap times, but almost 30 in total. Some of them have been saved twice with the same name.

I also completed my 24th event yesterday and STILL no trophy. At least other people seem to be in the same boat, I'd be more worried if it was just me, but this still isn't acceptable - particularly as it's taken about 20 weeks to try and get.

Worse still is that there are multiple threads on this "Official" site and others and yet they offer absolutely no confirmation as to how the trophy works - i.e. info solely stored on their servers; ghost saved data; our profile data; number of logged leaderboard times - nor if they are going to bother to fix it. And if they don't, perhaps the people who have completed 20 events and don't have the trophy, will now never get it.

It's a worry that this is still broken now - although their is some defence in that they may not have known until people started hitting 20 events.

Some kind of contact would be appreciated.

Additionally, I suspect (and hope) more people will raise this issue as they reach their 20 events - I've known about this issue for a while, since I pretty much did every event without missing any, but a lot of others are likely to have missed a few events here-and-there.

Its been four weeks now since the trophy started glitching and I still haven't seen SMS even mentioning a word about it. One thing is for sure, if this isn't fixed soon Project Cars 2 will not be purchased. I hate studios who aren't committed to their players. All I'm asking for is for them to admit the issue and give us a status report instead of being completely ignored.

I have a question for anyone else reading this who completed over 20 events and did not get the trophy. Did you buy any of the dlc?

I asked the six friends of mine who has the game about this, and I'm seeing a worrying trend here.

2 of them got the trophy, neither of them did any of the dlc events. And they both said they had horrible lap times. They just completed 1 valid lap and quit.

The 4 others completed over 20 events, all four of them purchased some of the dlc to try to speed up the process, and none of them got the trophy. That would be 5 people including me.

I don't know if this is a massive coincidence, or if it means we have paid for a glitch. But it could be a start for SMS to look into it if it turns out its the same pattern with people in here. If they have any intention of fixing it that is.

Interesting point, I have bought the DLC and have no trophy, for the record. The zero signal from anyone 'official' on here is deafening though but hopefully some response will come soon. I see there is a growing crowd losing their collective poo on psn trophy and more general Sony forums.

Some may see trophy/achievement/steam rewards as secondary but there is a huge following who see them as a big part of their enjoyment, if it is in the game it really needs to work and is no different to any other major glitch.

2 of them got the trophy, neither of them did any of the dlc events. And they both said they had horrible lap times. They just completed 1 valid lap and quit.

The 4 others completed over 20 events, all four of them purchased some of the dlc to try to speed up the process, and none of them got the trophy. That would be 5 people including me.

I don't know if this is a massive coincidence, or if it means we have paid for a glitch. But it could be a start for SMS to look into it if it turns out its the same pattern with people in here. If they have any intention of fixing it that is.

Interesting theory. It will be a big kick in the teeth if the "supporters" who buy DLC are the ones that are punished by this glitch, and even more so if it is fixed.

I have done 26 events and no trophy, and have bought all DLC so far and participated in the respective DLC community events.

SMS really need to sort this out. The longer it goes on, the more worried I am that we'll ever see a fix. As someone else has mentioned, I won't be buying PC2 if this isn't resolved - not just because it's glitched, but because they are ignoring a common problem.

Even if I do eventually get this trophy, I'll still be annoyed at them for their lack of comment on it.

had you done any of the dlc based events?

i was beginning to think it would not unlock for me then i got it yesterday, i had done every event since launch apart from the capri round the ring

I have all DLC and my trophy popped. got times on all events but the thing that I did was make sure that I did three or four valid laps on each event not just one valid lap then quit.

Ok, good to hear the DLC rumor was been dismissed. Sounds like it's still buggy, but is eventually unlocking for people.

It'd really be nice if SMS chimed in about this, even just to say they're looking into it. I know it's on the official PS4 bug list, but that doesn't really mean too much.

But all in all if I have to do 25 events instead of 20, it won't be the end of the world... as long as they keep them coming regularly enough. I bought the game to race, not to collect PSN trophies.

For people who got the trophy did it unlock at exactly 20 events complete, or does it actually pop at for example 25?

Two new events today and guess what. I did both and the trophy popped on the last one. Finally! That was my 28th event. I'm gonna unsubscribe from this thread and stop complaining now, but I still think SMS need to do something about it. It obviously doesn't work as intended. They need to step up and convince me this isn't going to happen again if I'm going to buy Project Cars 2

glad to see it pooped for you.......but guess what.......i just did latest 2 events and still the trophy hasn't popped for me........i have done all events including dlc ones......i have checked my saved data....and according to that i have completed 24 events.....(as i have said i have done them all.....i noticed a few of me times/events have mysteriously disappeared).........this getting beyond a joke now at this stage......(trophy clearly states that you only need to enter 20 events......so this should pop immediately after you complete your 20th event.........not by random when and if the game feels like it........this is totally unfair on most of us who have paid good money for both the game and the dlc.....seriously if the devs cannot be bothered to acknowledge this issue on this or any other thread with a proper response in the next few days....i will personally post my copy of the game back to the devs....for a full refund as this product is faulty.........full stop

Today was also my 28th event and the trophy yet again refused to pop. For the love of god, is it possible to get any developer come in here and say something about this? We have been in the dark since July without knowing the exact requirements of this trophy and by the looks of it, it's randomly unlocking for people, not when it says supposed to pop.

I hate you ;)

I've just done events 22 and 23 and guess what? Yep nothing, really glad for those who have got the trophy but i'd ask everyone to keep the pressure up on getting some information from the devs on this. The trophy is a Platinum/1000G stopper for a lot of people and what is even more grating is that it was probably put in the game to ensure that 1000's of achievement/trophy hunters would hang on to the game longer term (due to sporadic events spread over months) AND would also buy the DLC which some of the the events are tied to- stinks a bit?

Please SMS look into this :frown-new:

Hello Project Cars developers,
it's really frustrating that you don't even update all waiting players. It's annoying!

There are so many players in my friendlist who can't get this trophy, even after 30 Events!
All forums are full of this issue, many players on messageboards already boycott Project Cars 2, so why is there no update, whats the purpose of not responding?

Please inform us!

Since pcars is known to currupt save files, you guys better either try to manually upload it to the cloud storage in the system settings or back up your save game on a USB drive. Fre.Mo is right though, since the online storage is now 10 GB, file size really shouldnt be a problem.

Yep same for me, another event and no trophy. Seriously this is beyond a joke now, it's bad enough that it is glitched, it's far worse to have zero information about why it is glitched, how it is actually earnt, whether the DLC events are even tied to it (I suspect they are as it's arguably one of the worst 'to keep you playing/paying for the game' trophy examples I've seen in a long time) whether it relies on a counter or saved ghosts data- hell does anyone actually know?

That Twitter comment ages ago was probably just a pacifier, I question whether there is intent to fix this ill thought out trophy at all!

Hell at this point just give it to everyone in the next patch, as doing the events appears entirely secondary at this point.

Just done the Toyota event, no trophy, still, must be 30 odd events now.

Situation is becoming crazy now, hell just give the achievement in the next patch to everyone if it can't be fixed as it is needlessly upsetting a lot of people across all platforms.

As mentioned, just gone on to do the latest event that was scheduled for today to see its been moved/cancelled until next week. If anything more of these community events need to be added! 1 a week/fortnight is useless, especially for people new to the game and having to wait days just for 1 event.

Bought the Japanese car pack not realising an event was available for it so competed in that and still no trophy. I've had afew trophies Glitch on me in other games but there's always a work around for it most of the time, this community ambassador is beyond a joke now.

if i knew for a fact that toyota dlc would pop the trophy , i'd get it hands down. but since i don't, i am not spending money on it. i was sad to see this weeks event pushed back another week. maybe in the update they should just change its requirements to 1 event. see, driveclub may suck, but it gets its trophies right. i did 1 community event and it popped as it should in the new bike expansion :)

Hi everyone! I have read previous post about trophy popped out with japan cars dlc and can confirm!!
I partecipate to 27 or 28 event (20 with time included in first 3000) and never unlock trophy...after read that post this morning i downloaded japanes cars dlc, start community event and after 3 laps (only first valid) ended session... During loading screen before main menu i have received community ambassador trphy and platinum... I pay 3.49 euro for a platinum...but game was a gift so i can accept it!

Community events was planned in a different way (this week event was delayed to next week) and more events was added, i can't be sure but i think they apply some solution and probably next week with standard events (3 events was Planned all together in same day) trphy will be unlocked for all have 20 events!

The bug is clearly existent, if they cant pin point whats causing it, work back and re write the counting and flagging mechanisms for the trophy.. Failing that just dump 20+ events so that people can at least try their luck.. There is no excuse anymore.

Has anyone from SMS ever said what is actually counted to make the trophy work?

KK78
03-11-2015, 15:59
Nope, sadly not. It doesn't say if it is just the standard events the game shipped with, the standard events that have been added since, the DLC events too, whether a top 3000th time needed or not, whether it needs to save a ghost. I'm no programmer but some people have this trophy so I not convinced by the idea that it can't be fixed, either that or rewrite the trophy code so that is takes 5 events or something, test it and put it out in a patch.

If it can't be replicated as Bealdor suggests maybe an option is to rewrite the code so they can replicate and test it.

I've not been too bothered about these events or trophies but now that I think about it, this is pretty much the only trophy I need for the platinum. So I may as well go for it.

I've done maybe one or two of these since the games release so if I start now, will there be enough events to get the trophy? Is there a point where the events stop all together or are they planned for a year or more etc?

Provided of course that the trophy is not indefinitely glitched or broken...
Thanks

Skyone

New events are added every so often, so provided they fix the trophy glitch you will get it eventually, if you just started now it might take some time but you will get it.

I bought the Japanese car pack and did the event. Still no trophy :(

SMS - The game keeps track of how much time we've spent doing community events, and it shows us this time in our driver profiles. So, how about you change the trophy so that it unlocks after a certain number of hours, rather than the number of completed events?

For everybody who has issues unlocking the achievement, please try this:


If the Community Ambassador trophy hasn't unlocked for you yet, even though you met the requirement "Participated in 20 Driver Network Community Events" try the following:

1. Go to the Community Events section
2. Go to every event page you have taken part in
3. Check if you are on the leaderboard clicking the "Go to my time" icon

This will update the data in your profile and should unlock the trophy.

I don't think that matters, I basically pressed 'square' on 8 of the most recent events, about 3 came up with 'no recorded time' but the trophy still unlocked, I think the game recognises you entered the event even if your time is no longer in the top 3000. I could be wrong but it worked for me

cannot understand how people are getting this trophy by checking leader boards....do i have to wipe ghost data from my saves or something......

in all my years of gaming i never experienced such an absolute joke of a game......i must of played every racing game since pole position well back in the day and never any issues.........done with this game now.....i will break the disc in half......and i will post it back to sms....for a full refund.....because guess what i didn't break their game....it was broken when i purchased it....i suggest the community gets together now and demand a response from sms.....maybe we should all send our copies of this game back....(even the ones who have got the trophy...because i can guarantee they will never put this game back in their machines again.....after all the stress....and as for project cars 2.....are sms having a laugh

Guys, I didn't get the trophy by doing the extra events.

I initially tried the 'find me' method that was suggested on every event from the latest event to the first. In total it found 9 events in the top 3000. Anyway, the trophy didn't unlock like it hadn't for some trying this method so turned off and was waiting for the latest 2 events. Throughout the day people were saying the 'find me' method was working so I tried again and nothing.
Booted the console up at midnight and was afew minutes early for the event start time so thought I'd go through the 'find me' technique again, I was gob smacked that the trophy popped and I didn't do anything differently at all. This is how fucked up this trophy is. I repeated the same thing 3 times throughout the day and it eventually unlocked.

Finally no more need to boot this crap up every week now.

.....also there are lots of other issues.....like broken dlc.....i bought the first dlc which didnt work when it launched also
.....also i bought a 3 months PlayStation plus account.....(like many others probably)...to get a platinum in this game....so when you think about it i have spent a lot of money on this broken product.....

i understand games can be broken/glitched at launch....if the company had responded in kind to peoples concerns about this and other issues within the game.....people would have understood....given sms/project cars time to resolve this.....but the way this has been handled by this particular company....is extremely disappointing and very misleading......i wonder what sony and microsoft think about this.........?????????????

Yeah this can't be a factor, as when I got it many of the leader boards had no time registered. I think the trophy is just badly glitched, bad programming or whatever because it has fallen upon some random fella to find something which works for some. I honestly don't think SMS know what is wrong with it, hell it doesn't work properly across all 3 platforms. I think the method of refreshing events works because it tricks the system somehow so I'd keep trying as it likely the best resolution we can hope for.

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I finally got it today. I tried the "Find me" method three times a week since it's been found. I refreshed every event even the ones I've never been on the leaderboad or I didn't participated them (except the DLC ones). So guys, DON'T STOP TRYING. It took months but it finally unlocked when I totally lost my hope.

wouldnt bother mate....dont think you will be able to complete it 100%.....dont think there having anymore community events.....you need 20 for that trophy........and the way this company has treated its customers is a disgrace.....and i will certainly not be buying project cars too purely for this reason....i would have sent you my copy....but i put it in the bin when i finally got the trophy

Still waiting for more community events, have only done 12 since I started playing this rubbish back in October'15 and its my last trophy for the plat. How can they sell a game that you can't get the trophies for? Had the 24hr trophy glitch in the pit lane twice at 10hrs and 23hrs and now this, I just want this whole miserable game done with.

I complete more than 20 race time laps on community events and no got trophy yet. But im curious about experience profile data. There is a Community points in blue color and I have 4.87 now. From who got it trophy, how much is this points? Its relative to trophy?

It's in fact hours played in community events. For some reason, an hour has "'100 36-seconds minutes". I got 24 events and still no trophy and no answer. Nice support from the devs.

Please, if no-one can fix the trophy, someone give us a new set of events for 2017, or simply re-do the old ones and change the date ranges if that's easier so we can get some more and complete the requirements.

There will be new events in 2017 as part of the ongoing esport series.

Yes, but will there be another 20 at least? It appears the counter doesn't work across different seasons.

Exactly my doubt. Also, you could keep 2016 registry so we can do the workaround fix.

It appears they kept some of the events from last year, but some have disappeared, meaning I only show up on 10 of the existing 17 events I had times in. Luckily there appears to be enough events now total for me to complete this in the next couple of months (assuming the trophy actually works.)

Well, i got mine in the first one of these 2017 events. I completed it and the trophy (along with the platinum) popped. The funny thing is, I had only 15 events posted on the wall, so the counter is wackier than I thought. I'm not complaining though. Good luck with your quest, I bet you will also get it.
