I've tried now two races with the BMW 320 TC on Brands Hatch and Donigton and everytime i have the same issues. It seems that game hangs every couple of seconds a lttle so i never get the feeling of constantly speed. As i look beside the track on the buildings i see that the framerate isn't constant. Like it hangs than runs faster and then slower. Sorry but my english isn't good enough and i can't explain it better.

free practice the game runs smoothly with the 320 TC. I've compared the laptimes but there not slower in the race with AI.

Ah forgot tge races with AI was always with 21 AI Cars on track

1. Other cars ok? Only the new TC causing problems?
2. What about something less like 12 AI?

try hard resetting your console. Whenever I play project cars I give it a a hard reset first and it usually evades any frame rate and evem lag issues.

I had this problem when I was racing the McLaren F1 at Bathurst with 27 other cars. I then changed it down to 16 or 17 I cant remember and I still had the same problem. its very annoying and it kept making me misjudge my speed and slam into every wall because I didn't know the true speed that I was going.

This also happens with 125cc Karts on Dubai Autodrome. Massive slow down when running on the kerb, warp speed as soon as you get off it. I've also been in a race with 250cc Karts on Sakitto and noticed massive slow downs the same as the OP mentioned.

12 Karts, 6 Laps. Console always gets a hard reset and problem is still present.

BMW 320 TC

I ran a 5 lap race at Brands Hatch Indy & GP with 23 AI grid. I was in helmet cam view (no helmet or helmet focus blur). Time of day was set to 07:00 & real time advance. The weather was set to light clouds. The game ran silky smooth. I never experienced any surges of on screen action while doing the race at either layout of Brands Hatch.

This.

It was most noticable with Karts. No matter where I was. there was a constant cycle of speed up slow down. I get it every now and then with no seeming rhyme or reason.

Had it with GT3 @ Silverstone Quick Race and MP
Had it as Monza Formula B Quick Race Noon, Light Cloud, 15 AI
Had it with GT1 @ Silverstone GP Quick Race 1700 time Med Cloud, 16 AI

Those are just the most recent ones I can think of, but it happens on a regular basis, just not as drastically as it did right after 2.0 But it was most easily reproduced in Kart Career. Happened constantly.

Also, only happens for me when other cars (AI or Players) are on track. Not solo

edit: I always use Power Save, Always reset before i play Pcars, make sure no other apps are running. Pcars is installed totally on my External Drive

I had the same issue where it would lag going into corners did a hard reset on the xbox and it fixed everything for me. Seems like this game needs constant hard resets of the console.

Yip had the same problem with the karts, after a hard reset it was fine.

Hard reset didn't solve it for me. I had to turn down visuals.

Some advice from transfix:


Ok So try this out. Change the Visual settings back to default as below then reset your xbox. load game and see if it helps. I mimicked the same track/kart and visual settings and had the surging issue. When I entered the default visuals and tried again it was fine. Worth a try.

Post Processing Filters: On
Lens Flare: On
Sun Flare Exterior - Minimal
Sun Flare Interior - Full
Bloom: On
Heat Haze: Off
Global Specular Irradiance: On
Exposure Compensation: 1.00
Rain Drops: Yes
Vignette: No
Crepsecular Rays: Yes
Screen Dirt: Yes

I personally always hard restart my console before playing Project CARS. Before I got Project CARS, I would hard restart my console at least once a week anyway (the whole clear the consoles cache thing).

Framerate slows down, and lap time also affected? Had issue, always run max AI cars on the track and lap times noticeably slower. And thats in clear traffic.

Sorry UmerFarooq MohammadBinTalalTawoofKhan.

I'm getting this surging effect in most career races now,road america,hockenheim short are the two most recent tracks,with different cars too.
Can you actually turn down the number of AI in career mode on XBOX ONE,as I am struggling to see how to do it if anyone can help ?

No you can't. Be nice if you could lower AI grid size. A good hard restart should hopefully fix it. Then head straight to Project CARS.
