hard to say. The PS4 got it pretty fast, PC patch is not out yet so I think we have a couple of weeks ahead of us...not a biggie as the game is running well for me, but I would love to see some multiplayer fixes and improvements.....ah,I wouldn;t mind if the audio but went away but this one depends on MS' new SDK.

has the tire bug been fixed? the one that does not allow you to change compounds during a race...I've been playing online lately and I can see why so many people get frustrated with Pcars...when it works it is amazing, but there are many performance adjustments to be made.

I dont know tbh, l'm a bit tired of testing pitstops after every patch myself.
It would only disappoint me in the end.

The pitstop section of the patch notes was very small anyway, so no hopes there. :(

Interesting there was no pre-mention of patch 4.0 notes before it came out. Guess that was to stop the thousand 'is patch 4.0 out yet?' threads. Probably a good thing. Also interesting it's out on PS4 before PC.

On another note, reading through the notes, looks like lots of good fixes in there, and some new stuff too. Onward and upward, leaving F6 further behind in pCars' pursuit of good quality sim racing.

I am yes. The driving physics are pretty GTA like and the story is pretty cool. The combat is really fun too. Roaming the wasteland looking for scrap and base clearing can get a bit grueling but it's really not too bad like some say. I enjoy driving around blowing stuff up pulling guys out of moving cars with the harpoon and modding up my car along the way enough to make it worth it for me personally

Sounds fun! It seems the Xbox version is on par with ps4's. 1080p/30fps, but the xbox one seems to have an advantage as frame rate dips happen less often.

I see what u did there. Yeah there's a guy that rides around on your car, he fires the harpoon, attacks enemies that have jumped onto your car, and repairs the car when u stop or get out of it. It's pretty cool. And the game LOOKS fantastic, the photo/video mode is really freaking cool too

Seeing how "arcade" the Forza physics are has made me appreciate PCars even more. For that reason, I am not counting down the days for the next XB1 patch. I'm too busy racing (note I did not say "playing") PCars w/ patch 3.0.

No but there's a limited number of tracks that we can save setups to. (Actually mine is working correctly at the moment but I know it's going to blow up in my face at some point.)

It's not what tracks it's the quantity of how many can be saved. You can save on any up to 32 afaik.

All the info is in here.. http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?35792-Investigating-Problem-with-saving-a-set-up-after-Patch-2-0-Xbox-One

For the most part any track from Dubai up to Zolder.

Does it literally show only 32 track tunes when you go to load out a tune for a car? Or are all tracks shown to have a tune but only 32 stick when entering the setup?

JW, as I have a few cars with full tune load outs on all tracks (non-DLC). It shows all tracks with a tune when viewing load/save tunes for each car.

When this happens, if I try to load a setup, there are no tracks listed after Dubai for most cars. There are some exceptions.

Yeah pretty much if you save to all then it'll save the top 32 tracks. If you select individually like I did with the evo there it'll save any tracks up to 32.

Honestly if this isn't fixed in 4.0 wtf have they even been doing? It came after 2.0 and has had multiple threads/complaints yet nothing. I shouldn't even care, I dunno why I do with Forza 6 to play but I dunno, incompetence just annoys me.

So far we haven't found what triggers it. There are a number of hypotheses:
Could be related to the number of tunes saved - but I've had it occur when I had a lot of tunes and also when I didn't have very many.
Could be caused by selecting all tracks and then unselecting the ones you don't want to save to - this is my favorite theory at the moment.
Could be a MS cloud problem - why the hell are these things saved to the cloud by default in the first place?
Probably a few I forgot.

Happens on PS4 and PC, as well. Happened to me after the 2.0 update. I reinstalled, and then stopped saving to all tracks, and it hasn't popped up again, at least not yet.

Wasn't there something about a new tune save system to accommodate the multiple tunes per track? (wet/dry) Maybe they plan on killing 2 birds with 1 stone in 5.0? Either way if they seriously haven't fixed it for 4.0 then that's my faith in SMS lost tbh. Glad I have Forza to play in the meantime. Incompetence really isn't it?

I don't care about any updates if it doesn't fix the main and pretty much only issue that's effecting my gameplay. If it's not there I'm more interested in 5.0 tbh.

How can a game seriously be considered a sim when tyre's, crash debrie ect are left sprawled all over the track?
SMS have done the right thing removing it.

I think people need to work out whether they want a sim racing game or they don't.

About the debris on track, I just did the 25HR Bathurst Endurance race in career with the McLaren F1. Scaled the race down to minimum being 2 hours. Ended up turning over 50 laps and it was a blast!

I came to debris a couple times in the track and on the next lap most of it was gone which to me is exactly how it should be. There was what looked like a tire left behind by the marshals that appeared in the following laps but overall it was perfect. You will still see debris and have to dodge obstacles just as it is in real life. Why all the complaining??

The moaning comes from the fact that sms keeps the patches coming for small tweaks to the game without mending the main faults with the game. Game chat, sound bugs,crash to dashboard,multiplayer stability,frame rate issues,people joining game without freeze bug,game save lost on career keep having to hard reset Xbox and all the work arounds. I'd rather have all these problems fixed before debris on track is addressed. If all these things are mended in next patch I apologise for my moaning but I doubt it.

I came to debris a couple times in the track and on the next lap most of it was gone which to me is exactly how it should be. There was what looked like a tire left behind by the marshals that appeared in the following laps but overall it was perfect. You will still see debris and have to dodge obstacles just as it is in real life. Why all the complaining??

Are you for real? How do you expect people to react when they buy a game with their hard earned money and its broken. Comments like this is what fuels the frustration of the community.

It seems patch 4.0 has brought some new bugs unfortunately....I think now I understand why Turn 10 has gone with pre-baked everything..it is pretty hard to have so many variables like PCars does...and when trying to fix a bug you end up creating a new one...oh boy...I'm busy with Destiny and Forza so I can wait, but it is a bit sad to see my racing game of choice going through some rough time...

Hope they fix this:

Career Mode - Classic German Tourers.
Championship is made up of three events. After event 2 I'm level at the top of the table.
Race 3, Nurburgring. Lap 7 of 8, it starts raining. Everyone is on slicks. Wet track doesn't bother the AI, they carry on like it's not happening whereas my car won't even top 5mph without spinning out.

Weather forecast was medium cloud.

Thanks a bunch. Two wasted evenings, two wasted events.
The weather model is a lottery at best.

The moaning comes from the fact that sms keeps the patches coming for small tweaks to the game without mending the main faults with the game. Game chat, sound bugs,crash to dashboard,multiplayer stability,frame rate issues,people joining game without freeze bug,game save lost on career keep having to hard reset Xbox and all the work arounds. I'd rather have all these problems fixed before debris on track is addressed. If all these things are mended in next patch I apologise for my moaning but I doubt it.

Exactly,I wont even play anymore cuz I dont want to waste another evening trying to work around a buggy game ... I check this forum to see if the patches have worked and im not judging yet but it appears anyways by the notes that none of the serious problems this game has was addressed.Furthermore it appears from other forums on the other platforms that its bringing even more bugs... Its too bad.Couldve been a great game..Fan base is continuing to get smaller..

Maybe, just maybe, people are still working on those bugs as perhaps they aren't as easy to solve as most people here seem to be thinking? And should the guys fixing the 'smaller' bugs wait and do nothing while other devs are busy trying to solve those bugs?

I agree, each of these patches have big numbers 2.0, 3.0, 4.0. It seems like that should indicate more impressive patches. I do feel like it's improving, just not as much as we hope and not necessarily in the best areas.

I spend more hours with Kerbal Space Program. A fantastic game. It's been in full release on PC since about the time PCARS was released. It has bugs, and they fixed a bunch, the modding community is awesome....but they are on patch 1.04. Their next patch will be the biggest one yet, 1.1, and it will include an upgrade to the entire game engine, allowing for much improved performance, much more room for mods, better stability....now that's a patch. And they still haven't even gotten anywhere near a 2.0 yet. Lol

Well if these bugs are so hard to fix why make the game in the first place if they didn't know what they we're doing?, there comments none of us want to read. Some of the issues Pbucko listed even Milestone can get right and thats a dev team that should pack up and never make a game again!. opinions we all have and you can't blame people for having there fill when it comes to this game, all any of us want is the game we we're promised before its launch and thats the annoying thing, it could be the best racing sim to date and we all know that.

I have both XB1 and PS4. I bought the TX wheel on XB1. I will be getting a wheel for PS4 soon. Each has there own issue's. I have been fortunate as I have not had all the problems that a lot of people have had. I also only get and hr here and a hr there to play so I have only scratched the surface of project cars as far as how many tracks and cars I have actually ran. I rarely have the time to spend 4 or 5 hrs at a clip playing video games. I will say that there are always more lobbies online with the PS4 as there are with the XB1 especially when I do have that rare time frame that I can race for several hrs (Usually after 10pm EST when I am getting ready to swing to nights. I am usually up until 6am for a couple of days in advanced). But I only get this kind of time frame every couple of months if I am lucky.

I feel that some people don't realize that this is kind of the first type of simulator of this magnitude for a console ever. The Forza series and Gran Turismo series were never as in depth as this game is as far as trying to get as realistic as possible. This game is almost at a level of PC realism. Did SMS rush this game to market before it was ready, most definitely. But to me it does seem that they are trying to fix the game (I know that this patch is not the cure, but some of the issue's probably are more in depth so at least they are still releasing upgrades and some of the repairs that they can take care of now). They should start releasing patches as they get things figured out on a faster time frame instead of every month. They definitely have a long way to go, but I'm not personally going anywhere so I have nothing but time.

This community can definitely help them fix it by giving good solid feedback as to the issue's that they run into. Be as descriptive as possible and if you can capture it on video then that would probably help. SMS should be giving better feedback on all issues that are brought up so that the people on the forum know they are listening and working on it.

I do think that SMS should offer one of the DLC packs that are coming out for free for the people on this forum that are willing to stick with them while they continue to sort this out. This is my personal opinion, take it for what it is worth. I am 43 years old so I have lived a little.

Afwul lot of jumping to conclusions there. You're taking my words as the truth, maybe there are other things at play we don't know of. And if you've ever done some complex coding, you'd know that you can be very capable and knowing what you're doing, and still have a hard time finding that one persistent bug in your code.

I struggle to remember the code for my bank card let alone write a game, hence why I buy games and not write them, I leave that to people that know what there doing.

I'm one of the people that has stuck by this game no matter what's been chucked at us and lets face it, it has its problems still and from what I've been reading this new patch is about to give us more problems. I have seen people get banned from here for venting there frustration with the game, ok some go the wrong way around it and deserve it but some have just had enough and letting there feelings be known. I have seen a good friend banned from here for reporting the pit lane bug that let you drive the car out the garage and he was accused of hacking the game!, did he get an apology?, did he hell as like. Sometimes if you don't have the answer to a problem its better to say nothing at all, this game gets enough backs up as it is.

Warp bug game slows and speeds up when breaking into corners
Game save career lost
Persistent Xbox hard shutdowns

It's approaching 5 months now since game was released, these issues should now be mended. Roll on patch 5

This game has got better and better, I still haven't raced on all the tracks yet! I have bought every forza so far apart from the new one and after playing forza 5 I have lost interest in the franchise. There was more loading than racing.
I probably do one race a day in career as thats all I have time for but those races are always quality.. And tough!

Keep it up guys this is turning out to be a great game!

Yes the game is great on campaign, time trial. You try it online with 16 mates. Completely different story, every one having different issues no one can talk to one another properly, it's a nightmare that's why the multiplayer lobby's are emptying. None of my mates wanted to buy forza but we all have because we got sick of all the bugs and resets and workarounds. When this game works it's much better than forza but forza works.

I tried multiplayer proper (post patch 3.0) for the first time at the weekend. Lobby Browser is very good, like that. However, the framerate and freezing was so bad the racing was literally unplayable. I'm on a 40Mbit connection so to coin a phrase "aint my problem". Hurtling in to Dingle Dell at Brands in the Ginetta GT3 only to re-emerge from a freeze on the grass on the outside at Hawthorn is not good is it?
Huge shame as we all know it could be brilliant. If it worked.

Just to pick this out (I don't have a solution for your issues, sorry): 40MB download (upload?) speed has very little to do with stable multiplayer, where ping is (almost) all that matters. Not saying that the game isn't part of the problem, but a high download speed is no guarantee for stable MP even with a flawless game.

Interesting there was no pre-mention of patch 4.0 notes before it came out. Guess that was to stop the thousand 'is patch 4.0 out yet?' threads. Probably a good thing. Also interesting it's out on PS4 before PC.

On another note, reading through the notes, looks like lots of good fixes in there, and some new stuff too. Onward and upward, leaving F6 further behind in pCars' pursuit of good quality sim racing.


Not interesting, more a cock up I guess, trying to fake them coming out together. Whoops.

Thanks for the reply Bealdor. I'd read the dev posts before and I know the devs are working on it. But it's been 5 months now, and these bugs are the reason why we bought forza. The funny thing is forza does not have these issues online. So this proves it can be done. When are these issues going to be mended that's the answer I want to hear of sms.

I highly doubt it was a cock up... seems like they've learned from last time that if they pre-announce everything and we're all sitting around waiting for it to come out that "the patch isn't out yet... wtf?!" becomes the bigger story than the patch itself. Personally, I prefer it the way it was handled this time around.

Bit of a vent. Whoever designed the pit stop UI, I still have a bone to pick, it's so cumbersome, unintuitive and confusing to use in MP I can't stand it. Easily cost me 3 positions in a race last night because someone's genius idea of making a Default pit stop strategy of No Tires and 96L of fuel, even tho I had a different strat selected it didn't take effect, thanks again for frustrating me beyond belief.

And the replay was useless cuz 2 cars are stuck on the grid, one car is missing entirely and the rest of the positions and cars are totally wrong, also, thanks.

Edit: Oh and I almost forgot to mention those 5 second cut track penalties that penalized me for saving a spin. Love that. Couldn't make those optional I guess, can't think of the last time I saw a car slow to 20mph in the middle of a goddamn race on the track. So realistic.

Im sorry ok, Ive been pretty patient and waiting, and waiting, and waiting, patch after patch, and we are still here talking about the same crap. How many people are even still playing at this point?

the thing I find most telling is the decreasing number of people going to bat for the game at this point. I said it when 3.0 was taking forever, the Xbox section is just awash in the same complaints and people who want to enjoy the game more than anything, not being able to STILL and have pretty much reached the point where they throw their hands in the air and say screw it, "I guess Ill give it 6 months and come back maybe itll be sorted"

The best time to have all the big stuff sorted was before FM6 released and now Idk what kind of audience theyve retained on Xbox, it was much smaller than PS4 from the get go anyway but its not like its a cake walk on Ps4 either, plenty of bugs to be had there too

On another note, despite it getting fairly repetitive at times, Im still enjoying Mad Max. Still some untapped potential in the concept, but its FUN nonetheless. Map is huge, Game looks fantastic and blowing stuff up is always fun.

Pros:
-Game looks great
-Screen/Video Capture mode is really cool to use
-Car and Character modifications are numerous and keep you scavenging
-Story keeps you involved, and motivated
-COMBAT IS GREAT

Cons:
-Constantly collecting scrap gets repetitive
-Wastelanders all look the same lol
-Boss battles are a bit dumb

Bottomline:
60 bucks: Might be a good buy, mostly if your a Mad Max fan of the movies, or just really enjoy post apocalypic car combat (Im enjoying it for 60$)
On Sale 35-50 bucks: Even better
On Sale Anything less than 30 bucks: Def. worth a get at that point. Its fun, and its def. 30 dollars of fun.

I installed an external hard drive this weekend, dumped everything, deleted all saves all replays as well as all set ups, re-installed game and re-tuned my TX wheel.

Game now loads twice as fast, Great

Game now will not allow me to join MP games through lobbies after I leave a previous race. Every lobby I join regardless of what it lists as tracks and class remains the same as the track I was just in.....even if I choose to use random. This problem persist until I leave game completely and then reload from X-Box main

I was disconnected from over half of the MP races I was able to join for more then 3 hours of attempted game play.


So My simple question is this; Will Patch 4 or even 5 address getting MP squared away?


If I hear one more defender come in and lament about how difficult it is to write code and fix bugs on such a complex game,..... I swear to god I will spend the rest of my life figuring out how to become a Ninja and then kill them.

Every patch addresses the MP issues, but getting everything squared away may not be done completely by 4.0 yet (I don't know anything about the dev side of things, though, so don't take my word about anything unless I tell you to ;)).

Bug fixing is complex so it sometimes needs more time than wished, though. This game is very complex.

I wasted two hours trying to play p'cars this morning, it doesn't surprise me there were not more than 5 lobbies running at the same time. Played forza online last night, pretty much every race was full lobby....��

No no, I'm just asking. Cuz it seems like the guys in our league on wifi are the ones that have the most trouble. Just curious

I highly doubt it was a cock up... seems like they've learned from last time that if they pre-announce everything and we're all sitting around waiting for it to come out that "the patch isn't out yet... wtf?!" becomes the bigger story than the patch itself. Personally, I prefer it the way it was handled this time around.

Of course it was a cockup, there is a whole extra layer of approval for the ps4 version, Sony, that isn't needed for pc, are you suggesting Sony approved it without looking at it and somehow got it out before Steam did:) that I will never believe.

Can't say I'm bothered whether they pre-announce or not, don't think anything I'm hoping for is in any danger of being imminent, although I can understand why they don't, but console patches coming out before LC is logistically impossible except for a last minute pc additional bug fix, but then an explanation would be too much to expect:)

Dedicated servers would help, but I guess it would be too costly on consoles for sms at this point

What i don't understand is that i get a TX wheel (which is wonderful) and then have a play with FFB settings, real good fun just messing around and testing cars...save the settings in 'garage'...go to free practice...back to default...set it all again... back to garage save it AGAIN there..back to free practice....back to default.. now however much i love this game and even then fact i'm not that bothered with the default FFB anyway, but the point is, why cant it do a simple thing like that?
Then worse than that you'd come here to explain it and someone will just pop in to say "never happens to me ever" and thats it..
OK i over exaggerate and apologies to the guys who DO actually try to help, but i'm sure you know what i'm on about.... funnily enough a lot of the games biggest defenders of the bugs are PCars Gold members so that's actually very worrying...

It is a truly sublime game, even more so now with my TX, but some glaring bugs and bad design choices are really letting it down.
For every moment of beauty there is that moment like the invitational at that NZ track in the LMP's, its dark and and the AI has its lights on and the screen tear and frame rate was embarrassing, i was on my own and i felt embarrassed for myself playing it!! I had to just end race and know to skip it if it pops up again.
When it goes from dry to rain in career frame rate goes nuts.
Then you pick a track and do normal race with clear weather and its just wonderful....
Personally for me its no good saying Forza is 'pre baked' when the alternative on xbox at least works so badly with variable weather in career...

Same until I saw the patch notes and all the complaints from PS4/PC lot about having new problems.

Not a fan of some of the new features in 4.0 either.

you see....this is what happens when a patch is approved straightaway by MS. 48 hours after the ps4 is what I would normally expect...
