:eagerness::glee: The anticipation is starting to get to me.....

Logged into Steam and lo and behold it starting downloading an update!! I was :tickled_pink:!! Then I realized it was only 17MB in size and I was totally :dejection:

Really can't wait for this to hit my PC.... So looking forward to the Real Weather fix. It's one of the big things that has been holding up our league planning as it was one of the key features we were looking forward to using for that extra level of realism.

Once again, thanks to the entire SMS team for their efforts and continued support. Now is there anything you guys can do about my lack of patience??? :p

GLUE/MAGNETIC EFFECT.

Don't know what the state is at present (to much RL work for sim racing) but during development this was really noticeable on the OVAL tracks,

cars would stick/glue/magnetize to the the side wall of track....worth a deeper investigation if this BUG is still in game :cool:

Damn - didn't think of ovals. The magnetic effect will be a HUGE problem on these tracks.

Absolutely aggree. Ovals are more kind of a full contact sort of racing. Its part of it, especially with Nascars. Bump drafting could become impossible e.g.


So, no signs of the v3.0 patch on Steam yet? :rolleyes:

Seems, that this time they updated the PCars dedicated server before the main update.

They put the AI slider in the global settings page ?? That not were i thought they would have put it , i thought it would be before you stat a race . I could be wrong and will have to wait and see.

Why not expect dlc to be integrated into main part of game (career)? defeats main point if it doesn't; unless just wanting to test the car with ai or trials.

Thank you for the patch, guys.
I'm a little bit disappointed that there is still no midgame save option. At least in solo mode it should be possible to save whenever we want.

But maybe next time. Thanks anyway.

Definitely agree with you there. I can't always spend the time at the wheel to complete the sessions in one go so that would be a godsend.

Fantastic job on this patch though. Really can't fault the work going into this game to make it the masterpiece we all want :)

If the resolve developers meet bothered a slider would be the ideal tool, just that.

In Games an Apps, find the icon for Pcars, at the same time, press the left small button(with two squares) and the two triggers. It should say: 2.0.0.1_x64 = ver 2.0

Longing for the patch and some car and track packs. Since the game has no ability to buy cars with ingame currency you earn, I really like to spend some real money to fill the inner hole. Besides I always need more cars. I have driven them all.

Quick question raised elsewhere: why does the patch need to go to Namco first? Is it purely to make sure licensing agreements haven't been compromised by new patch content?

Invincible
13-08-2015, 09:44
No, I think it is mainly because they are the ones in contact with MS / Sony / Steam as they are the distributors. And also they might have more staff to test for bugs and glitches as SMS does have.
And as a distributor, who is in contact with the likes of Sony / MS / Steam, I would want to test the the product too, before I pass it trough.
I mean, if I would let a deeply faulty product pass without testing, it could show me in a poor light.

I've asked this before and an answer was given but I'm wondering whether there will be a car specific leader board or the ability to wipe your own time. I ask this because I am in competition with a friend in an open wheel class but I stupidly put a time in using the Formula A car. Gutted as its now wiped my Formula Gulf time which was 2nd quickest.

The new patch doesn't only include bug fixes but also additional features which will enhance the game. You paid money for the base game in its base state, and a dev is not obliged to support it any further with fixes or enhancements. Yet this one does that continuously which they deserve some credit for. This dev. is also transparent enough to share what they are up to in advance. They could have just as easily publish the patch notes after it was released, to avoid reactions like 'I want it now' or 'Where's the damn patch???'. Again a courtesy to its customers which they deserve credit for.

Yeah, if Namco/Sony allowed release of broken game that was (and in some aspects still is) Project CARS they don't have to bother with any testing because is probably done by blind monkeys. :cool:

I do not agree. We bought a game. When you buy a game you may expect it is a finished product. Some bugs ok, but not the in the state Pcars originally was released.
When you buy a car, you may expect it is a complete build car with no faults. I think when you buy a car and you must be afraid because the change is there you will loose wheels, you're gonna complain at the garage you bought the car.
The guy's at sms are doing their best to fix the problems and that is great but you can understand there are people not happy and they will complain about it.

Let's hope the fix 3.0 will gives the game we thought we bought.

I'm not going to deny PCARS had quite the bug infection at launch especially on consoles, and pre release Q&A might have lasted a couple of months longer for all platforms ideally (but then people would complain about another delay). Thing is SMS could have just patched the biggest ones and be done with it. If you read the patch notes you notice that a lot more effort is going into them and also feature wise a lot of stuff we request is added, which is still a courtesy to us which i'm grateful for.

And that is what is happening on this forum indeed, but there's a difference in making your complaint heard in the appropriate thread for it, and constantly poluting every other thread with it, which many can't seem to distinguish here...

What do you think why do they act like this? Because they are the salvation army? That happens only in their business interest... I can imagine they are interested in getting people involved in their "investment system" for PCars 2. And I also can imagine that a lot less people will be open minded to buy shares, if SMS leave the game as it is right now or even earlier.
In my opinion, I repeat: in mine, SMS is forced to fix the game and add new content to it as they promised that before release, because If SMS had broken that promise, they would have lost far more people willing to buy shares or simply the second part of the franchise.
Don't get me wrong, I appreciate their tries to fix the game and to release new stuff for the game, but I clearly can't see the welfare behavior that you want to make believe.

Yes it's all a scam, they are just giving us stuff so we'd buy into PCARS 2 as they are desperate for our money. I heard Ian is laughing all the way to the bank right now in his brand new Bugatti.

Buy shares as in, expecting to turn a profit? Lol

Makes me feel like everything you're saying is inaccurate, but please continue explaining this for us..

I haven't play PCars in nearly a month, not for major reason. It's a challenging and fun game, but one problem I had was an enormous lack of information that I wanted to see. I have yet to even race, I only do track day open practice.

I came here because I've wondered if this new patch since it includes telemetry data, does that force us to use screen displays while playing or could we simply access this information when we pit.

Without access to the current companion apps, these additions are well deserved for console users but I want holistic access this information in the pits.

I waited one year to buy Forza 5 after it was launched. After one year should I have expected a finished game? Yet nearly two years after it's released it still has issues. So basically Turn 10 flips the middle finger and says, that's all you get. I much rather have someone like SMS that at least acknowledges they have issues, communicates with the players what they intend to do about them, you've got more than one patch instead of one and done, the developers are on here, heck the head of the studio is on here. To me that goes a long, long way and allows me to be pretty patient.

You came with this novel idea that they are releasing patches and upgrades in order continue luring players interest for further projects. Do you have any idea what it costs to release patches on these console networks, it's far from free. It costs them more to release the patches than the return from using your idea, to release patches in order to get more "support" from fans. Who you also seemed to say were investing, in exchange for shares in the game. Even if you didn't mean that, it's a hilarious accusation.

13-08-2015, 22:34
Yeah the game has its bugs but the core is excellent. If all the bugs disappeared tomorrow Project Cars would be far and away the best console racing sim, and a real competitor to anything on the PC. My mind is blown by the amount of great stuff coming in this patch and they seem intent on keeping that up. There's lots of reasons to be optimistic I feel.

With no word I've said that it is an investment of the "fans" to get a monetary advantage. They "only" help to "pre-finance" the game and for doing so they are getting benefits like early access to the game and many things more. So this is a win-win for both sides.
Sorry, if you have stumbled on the word "shares". In the end the pre- financing is a kind of a share. the more you fund, the more non monetary advantages are given to you.
What if SMS would have stopped patching or improving after patch 1 or 1.4? The willingness of the fans (you called them so) to fund maybe would not have been that large as it is right now.
So see the patching of PCars1 that SMS did, is doing and will do as an investment into the future. To keep people/ fans/ funding people satisfied and interested in the next part of PCars.
And not only as an act of compassion and altruism.
Maybe now it is more understandable even to you.

I have no idea where you were when this game released and they announced there would be continued support and patches to the game for many months to come.. If anyone was paying attention to this process, the studio was being a bit rushed into releasing by a number of factors.

If it were completely up to them I doubt the game would even have released when it did. We could still be going right now with no release date in sight, if it were solely about readiness.

I waited one year to buy Forza 5 after it was launched. After one year should I have expected a finished game? Yet nearly two years after it's released it still has issues. So basically Turn 10 flips the middle finger and says, that's all you get. I much rather have someone like SMS that at least acknowledges they have issues, communicates with the players what they intend to do about them, you've got more than one patch instead of one and done, the developers are on here, heck the head of the studio is on here. To me that goes a long, long way and allows me to be pretty patient.
I don't say or mean SMS is a lousy developer and yes there are more games which are released to early. The point is that I bought Pcars, so that is the discussion here. I don't care if forza also has problems, I'm talking about Pcars here. :)

On another note, I think although the constant stream of enquiries/praise/criticism/bitching/general whingeing can be boring, it shows people are emotionally invested in the game and want it to be the best it can be, silence and apathy would be much worse as it would show people do not give a toss.

That's not the problem. The problem is, they say it was submitted, people assume it's gonna be out in few days. Than, something happen, xbox patch get benched, ps4 patch s not approved, pc people ask why they have to wait for the other platforms release. Sms have been pretty open about everything but some people can't handle so much information and start to disturb things. I guess that's why other developers don't even communicate with the players anymore...

Why not expect dlc to be integrated into main part of game (career)? defeats main point if it doesn't; unless just wanting to test the car with ai or trials.

Experience in other games if it's the same as me. GRID Autosport DLC content didn't integrate, it was all separate from the main game.

SMS, you made me so happy with this release! That new track cut definitions system, I was so excited when I read about it, didn't think you would ever do that to be honest. And the reset of the leaderboards already, I would have thought we would have to wait a while for that to come too. Oh my beloved Time Trial mode, I will love it more than ever!! Thank you so much! I will definaltey buy some DLC, even though I'm not really interested in it because the content is more than enough for me already in vanilla. But you just deserve that money for your effort! People who know me a bit longer in this community know that I was never exactly the most positive or confident guy and that I'm generally very critical. But the way this game evolves, it has really become very hard to find arguments why pCARS would not be the best racing sim EVER.

THANK YOU SMS!

The weather forecasts are a great idea, but how far into the future do they look? Mine said the forecast was cloud, but within 5 laps we had a thunderstorm. I'm sure 'real' forecasts would have picked this up, as it basically shit down for the rest of the race

Anyone else getting a few issues in the edit setup menu. Some options (So far, brake pressure and rear tyre) when editing the AMG DTM setup at Willow Springs Int Raceway are washed out when you select them, you have to press the down button twice to get past them, on second press the option becomes normal colour. This was in an online lobby, but not sure if it's limited to this game scenario as that's all I've played with the new Patch.

So looking at the forums overall it looks like a pretty decent patch at least. Even the troll haters have trouble finding stuff to moan about ^_^ The console guys seam to be much happier now then before. A few minor bugs were added to the game with patch 3.0, but that should be an easy fix with the next round up. So all in all a very solid package and a damn good work http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/images/icons/icon14.pnghttp://forum.projectcarsgame.com/images/icons/icon14.png.

If I'd had a wish, it would be to have someone continue developing the API resp. bring new data into the API, like ride height, spring travel and tire pressure :x

strangely for me the real weather still doesn´t work. It´s all bright bright sunshiny days... are there some extra firewall-settings I need to alter or has anyone else still got the problem? should be working, since some people reported it did now :(
Otherwise I need to add: Patch is absolutely awesome! :D

edit: weirdly, the second I decided to post the weather-problem here it disappeared and weather ist correctly fetched! maybe I should post all my problems here and expect them to be self-solved, so: i need more money, bigger flat, less heat outside.... ;-)

By default, "real weather" gives me an odd date and time, when it is supposed to run on the current day's weather forecast and by default the current time.

In order to correct this, the last thing I do before launching an offline mode (quick race weekend; free practice), is cycle through all the weather slot options until I reach "real weather" again.

For online server hosting, I have to do the above just before launching the server and then do it again in the server lobby, by clicking the weather tile.

If you want, you can change the starting time to any hour of the current day and get the weather that happened or is forecast to happen according to the website used for this feature.

You can also adjust the "weather progression" slider, I love setting it to x30, to often get a real mix of conditions at Spa. :D

I am really enjoying the improvements of v3.00. The updated rain effects are great and help to immerse you further and add tension to races because of the more realistic look. The reclassification of cars for Online reduces the lucky dip vibe of old too. Also, the updated dirt effects look fantastic now - My R18 e-tron quattro looked amazing after a race at La Sarthe tonight.

If PCars continues to improve at this rate it will be close to perfect by Christmas.

Please fix the issue of liveries resetting to Random when we change car as it is driving me mental!

What if those other games bring an improved build of their rain system? Should SMS then go one better? What we have now is really good and we should be more than happy with the improvement.

@ N0body Of The Goat

Thank you for trying to help :-) I do just the same as you, cycle through the slot options to correct date and time, and for a while it worked fine yesterday. However, a couple of hours later I only got clear conditions again and since that real weather is kind of an on-off-Relationship.
Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn´t...
(yes, I did check my internet connection, which is working consistently ;-) )

Is it really intentional that you can now mix the tyre compounds at car setup? Like with Formula A you can use softs at front & medium at rear or vice versa? That is quite silly imo as no real life racing series allows such thing.

MitchR32
16-08-2015, 09:59
Any racing series that allows different tyre compounds (like ALL) allow any compounds to be used.

Joni Varis
16-08-2015, 10:18
Atleast on any RL openwheel series (F1,Gp2,fr.3.5, F3 etc) they arent allowed to use mixed compounds beetween axels. So example if there is medium and soft compounds availeble, then all 4 wheels has to be soft or medium, not mix of those.

This 3.0 patch definitively is the biggest step so far! A lot of bits have been implemented now that we have been waiting for for so long! As there are the tire wear display, the laps per fuel display or the weather forecast. Rain on the wind screen now looks much more realistic as the water floats along with the wind. Amazing small detail, improving immersion so much! And in Monza with the Merc 2.5 Evo in the rain I felt like the AI (71%) was much closer to my lap times than ever before. I only tried a few hours in solo career mode so far, so I didn´t find all the changes by now. Thank you SMS, great work taking PC1 to another stage imo.

But: since the 3.0 patch I encounter a strange internet issue. What I did: I updated to 3.0 and without trying it out I next updated from Win7 to Win10. After that everything seemed to work fine until I went to time attack yesterday. After some 3 - 7 minutes some very strange behaviour occurs to my computer. My internet connection is disconnected, the wifi adapter gets disabled. I can´t reactivate it as this option is washed out. CPU load is between 50-60% (task manager says it is "system" causing the cpu load) though there is nothing to do for it and even the task manager crashes, which I never ever encountered before. I wasted some hours yesterday experimenting, but that just lead me to nowhere. I repeatedly found this happening as soon as I start something that has to do with the leaderboards like time attack or just viewing the leaderboards. All I can do is restart the system. In this thread I read something like the leaderboards being reset? Maybe I picked the wrong time? Anybody else here encountering similar effects? Any hint would be highly appreciated.

But once again: apart from this I am glad all over with the new patch.

Edit: Sorry for getting on your nerves with my technical issue, I moved the issue thing to a separate thread in the technical department. If interested, see http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?37255-Patch-3-0-Win10-internet-disconnected&p=1086160#post1086160

I assume that you are expecting a project cars comparison to a racing sims that cost way more cash and come with personalized hardware and a technician to install it. I'm comparing console games, would have also compared Asseto corsa which is also in the same category as those but have no game pc. games not on the list are full arcade racers such as tdu, forza horizon, nfs shift 2, gtav, and more. And yes I classify project cars as a sim; but why do you look here for a 60$ professional race sim? now smh.

I guess you are thinking the "pro sim hardware (cxc full sha-bang)" vs the "sim games (couch players or semi hardware)" there is no comparison imo. But I could be wrong and you are welcome to elaborate. However As i have play and loved forza and gran turismo, Project cars update 3.0 made it another great game to add to that list.

I agree mixing compounds per axel is odd. A race engineers nightmare car setup... Maybe in oval racing (I have no idea) but no GT or endurance series allow it... Nor would they even mess with it if they could.

I don't know on xbone but on ps4 they do stop... I had a race without mandatory pitstop and saw the AI pit...a bit later it started to rain.there is also a difference in speed when they don't have the correct tires on...

Just a quick question:


* Tweaks to AI pit logic to ensure they pit in proper mandatory window in races that feature a mandatory pitstop.


Does Formula A feature a mandatory pitstop? I'd like to replicate real Formula 1 as close as possible, so it would be really cool if you (and the AI) have to pit at least once to use both tire compounds.
And is it possible to lock refueling?

Thanks

In the menu, on some of the sliders when I move up/down to highlight them, they turn a funny greyed out color. When I finish adjusting them I hit the up/down button and it turns back to normal and then I have to hit up/down again to move off of it to the next one. On those sliders I have to hit the up/down button twice to move past them. Not a big deal just a little annoying when I’m moving through them fast like I’ve been doing and change the wrong thing because it hasn’t moved to the next slider.
It only happens on a few of them like the “Brake Pressure” or “Brake Balance”. Has anyone else noticed this???

Also I noticed the button on my G27 that paused the replay doesn’t work unless I have the little box up on screen that has the controls on it. In other words, If I’m taking screen shot with nothing on the screen but the race I can’t pause it to hit “F12”. It used to work before like that. I would watch the race with a clean screen forward, rewind and pause and needed then maybe take a screenshot. That’s a lot of the fun of this game to me, the replays and using them to better my racing line or see where I can improve for my lap times..

At the time the cable company messed something up and we were out on our Internet for a few days. I couldn't get past the start screen without a connection. Called MS about it and after getting mixed answers on how to make it work (and none worked) I finally got two different supervisors confirm it can't be played without initially connecting to the Internet. So since I can't play Forza until my Internet gets fixed, I go to play the game that came in the bundle (forget the name, not really into those kinds of games). GREAT! at least I have something to play. Oh but then to find out that the time I put into it I can't save my progress. And I didn't find this out until I came back the next day and have to start from the beginning. And just to be sure I went ahead and made some progress, turned off and on the system and start from the beginning again. So I get Internet back on and play Forza. Big disappointment.. So to be sure, I disconnect my router from the Xbox, sure enough, again I can't get past the start screen. No thanks Boxed it up and returned it. Matter of fact I think I might still have Forza 5 somewhere

You can play an Xbox without being online. The first of the Xbox One's from launch had to download a mandatory update from online once. Then those launch batch Xbox One's can be played offline. You don't need to do that at all with the newer Xbox One's.

This stuff was said at launch by Microsoft. Seems to me like you doing some extremely unnecessary bashing, all because your cable internet provider messed up. All Xbox One's can be played offline.

Linx
19-08-2015, 07:11
Sorry if you or anyone else took it as bashing but that was not my intention. I was just speaking on my experience with the Xbox One which wasnt a good one for ME. After returning it I figured I would just go the PC route since neither Xbox nor PS4 supported Fanatec wheels unless you upgraded to the CSW v2,which for the longest required an invitation and the cost of having to buy a base and rim would run close to $1000. And then when you add in the cost of the console would be over that amount. And though a decent gaming PC would run close to $1000 I felt the PC was a better route being I could use my old CSR and there are other good racing titles as well. But that all changed once it was announced that Pcars will support a wheel I already have. Instead of looking at a high cost of a PC set up, now I'm back down to a $400 console. I could always go the PC route later. Again, I didn't mean to bash, it was not my intention if that's how it was taken.
