Hi all,

The PS4 patch is rolling out today. Here are the release notes for the patch.

Project CARS – PS4 Patch 7.0 – Release Notes


Online
• Reworked the dynamic race-end timer feature. In public races, the timer is 75% of the slowest moving car's lap time. In private races and passworded public races, the timer is 150% of slowest moving car's lap time.


Physics & Tyres
• Neutralized the top speed advantage of running zero camber on many tires.
• Reduced flash layer temperature cap for GT3/LMP and other slick tires to make them less prone to overheating.
• Classic Lotus cars: Disabled patch-to-hub on several tyre carcass models as it was creating a strong low-speed FFB buzz.


Controls
• Update to latest Fanatec SDK, Re-instated 2nd DPAD support for CSRE based on latest SDK functionality


Career
• Corrected the German name for the LMP3 UK Semi-Pro Championship


Tracks
• Rouen Short – Reworked the AI paths around the hairpin area to try and keep the historic cars from running up the hill on exit when in tight packs.


Vehicles
• Repositioned the cockpit camera view to a proper center point for a number of vehicles that were reported to be incorrectly positioned.


Audio
• Lotus 40 and 49 - Rebalanced the AI vehicle volume.


General
• Fixed various game crash issues reported by customers.


UDP streaming support
overview
The UDP stream extension has been developed to allow 3rd party app developers the opportunity to receive telemetry data from the game. It is based mainly on the ‘Shared Memory API’ with a number of extensions to transmitted data.
The option is enabled via the ‘Game play’ menu ‘UDP mode’. This can be selected between off and 1-9. The number represents the UDP streaming data rate as follows:
UDP off
UDP 1 60/sec (16ms)
UDP 2 50/sec (20ms)
UDP 3 40/sec (25ms)
UDP 4 30/sec (32ms)
UDP 5 20/sec (50ms)
UDP 6 15/sec (66ms)
UDP 7 10/sec (100ms)
UDP 8 05/sec (200ms)
UDP 9 01/sec (1000ms)
The stream is sent to a broadcast address (255.255.255.255) on port 5606.

5.8 gig, that's huge for a tweak to the tyre physics and to fix a typo for the Germans.

While your around Stephen, would you care to elaborate on changes to the tyre's in this update? It seems to be a hot topic of debate of late with no real official input.

These are the ones I know about.

At the moment it's just pcars dash that's been updated on Android. I believe it might be possible to use Crew Chief with the ps4 data stream if you run it on a PC. An android version of that is in the works too.

HUD Dash will be updated soon too.
There may be others working on their apps but those are the ones I've heard about

Keep up the good work sms.

I'm really looking forward to trying out the UDP steam soon.

I was hoping to see fixes, for admittedly minor issues, such as our car resetting to P30 LMP1 after restarting the game after quitting while having a DLC car or circuit selected.

Hopefully for v8.00 we can save our preferred livery for cars too.

5.8GB? Are you sure that's not the cumulative total of all updates to date?

Deadzone
14-12-2015, 09:44
agreed. whats with the size when we basically get sweet FA ?

I guess it includes the next lot of DLC. I wish the updates didn't have to include new content, but I can understand why it is done this way.

14-12-2015, 09:59
i noticed the latest tracks were very heavy on ffb wheel and had to turn down the master ffb settings to around 80% to 90% which helps , so i am hoping new patch will help ffb on our brillant daddy of all racing car games, my other question is when will we get the engineneers help as he hasnt been available to use from day 1 of project cars but is in the menu ask your engineneer for advice , i keep asking him but lol but must have better things to do , but you all must agree projct cars is truly a master class of a racing car game, no other game comes close not even f12015 which is rubbish on the wheel and lets me down on so many levels ,perhaps the great team from project cars can take over and completely redue f1 2015, i hope anyway.

Thanks for this, very happy to get the second d-pad back on the CSRE. Neck brace removed, I can now look left and right.
Looking forward to a more stable crash-to-dash-free experience too.
I won't even mention the voice chat and the Silverstone Classic pit bug because they are not in the notes.

I spoke too soon.

When trying to map the left-hand d-pad to look left & right (and up & down) I get "Multiple inputs were detected. No action was assigned".

This is using the Formula Rim but it shouldn't make any difference.

Halp!

Edit: in fact, trying to assign ANY function to ANY direction on the left-hand d-pad gets the same message. Am I doing something wrong?

I think he means on the same tablet. In theory this will work, but it requires each app developer to create the UDP network socket connection with a particular option set, and to ensure this done before they start using (bind) that socket connection. It also requires the OS to honour that option - for Android this will generally be OK as it's based on Linux

14-12-2015, 15:06
It's the packet send rate. 1 = send 60 packets per second. 9 = send 1 packet per second. 1 is best if your network and device can handle it, but the network might get congested and / or the device might not be able to keep up and might choke. 9 (1 packet per second) is probably too infrequent for most apps

I had that problem a long time ago and then realised my shifter was in gear, causing the "multiple inputs" message when trying to map. Make sure you're not in gear.

I haven't paid for any program yet. I downloaded "HUD Dash" (free version) to test UDP streaming feature when patch goes live here in Chicago. I have also watched videos of both programs, and will purchase PCars Dash if the test works nicely with HUD Dash. From what I can tell, these are two different programs that work the same way.

I just tested Hud dash and crew chief together on the same phone at the same time and all worked well :-). Samsung galaxy s4.
So you were able to hear Crew Chief while you were viewing HUD Dash? I tried it with Pcars Dash but couldn't get the both of them to work at the same time on the same device. Now I gotta figure out how to mount my tablet and phone on my rig. Love this UDP. It just brought Pcars to a whole other level of fun!

Yeah Mate , I started Crew Chief on phone then pressed the hard button on the phone ( not sure what It's called , the one in the bottom middle ) then opened and started Hud Dash and loaded a race .

Everything in the update, apart from totally wrecking the tyre heating model, is great. Thanks.

I was really enjoying the racing after patch 6 and having to manage my tyres as it bought strategy into races. Now it's a struggle to get any meaningful heat in tyres and has sucked the fun out of it. I've got everything crossed that patch 8 puts us back to somewhere near patch 7 with tyre heating.

Yet another patch and yet another balls up regarding force feedback. I had my gt3 set up perfectly after hours and hours of testing. Then a patch with HUD app arrives and my initial excitement is ruined by the fact that not only does global settings return to default but my settings before patch 7.0 are now undrivable. SMS I'm really sick and tired of fiddling with sliders instead of enjoying RACING. It's why I purchased the game in the first place. I'm a busy guy with a busy family and I barely have the time to race let alone faffing about with settings all the time.
It's a rant but a valid one.

The overheating on GT3 cars and LMP cars was wrong, their tyres are designed that it shouldn't happen, its fine for the other class of cars, Formula A etc because they have crappy tyres

The Ruf R-GT8 (previously one of the more 'planted' GT cars and a personal favourite) handles like a drift car on ice since patch 7. This isn't a tyre temperature issue, it's like the whole setup of the car has changed. This totally ruined a one-make MP race last night. Very frustrating.

Personally I doubt any of the major bugs will be fixed now. Considering this patch doesn't really contain any big bug fixes it looks like they're moving towards making small tweaks.

IIRC one of the mods said the other day that just because a bug is 'known' doesn't mean they will be fixing it. Also, mysteriously, many of the major bugs (FFB vibration, random crashes, gameplay stutters etc.) can't be reproduced. Odd that. Especially given the amount of players experiencing them.

Had almost a month away from the game (mostly due to frustration with it), and came back to play it last Sunday in a multiplayer lobby. My crew chief seemed to think the best way for me to start the qualifying session was to be spinning around 500 feet in the air & needing to leave the lobby to get the game working again. Bold strategy, but it didn't quite pay off.

Nevertheless, it was a nice 'Welcome back to Project CARS!'

I'm still not sure I've even seen an acknowledgement about the Silverstone Classic pit bug (that we aren't allowed to talk about here).

The PS4 Reporting Thread is looking very bare and is especially devoid of response from anyone (SMS) for over a month. 1x person has mentioned the Silverstone Classic pit problem but not so much reported it (brief description used).

And the known thread doesn't appear to have been updated since around October!!

Yep. This game has had me sliding from 'Holy s**t this is fantastic' down to 'I'm pretty sure I'm not even enjoying this anymore'.

I'd have much preferred SMS to keep all their 'On Demand' stuff & say 'The content on release is all you're getting, but we will commit to solving any issues that have a major negative effect on gameplay'.

It's all well and good coming up with apps for engineers and telemetry, but the enjoyment is reduced drastically when 50% of the time you can't even get to the end of the pitlane without a problem cropping up.

I tried having a online race at Silverstone Classic in LMP900 yesterday and i couldn't get a setup to save at all .
I went to pits did my setup suspension and diffs and so on including FFB master and sop and so on pressed x and the save icon appeared and went to race but my wheel felt to heavy so i went back into pits to check settings and nothing was set ,so i did my set up again went back out and same thing . Is this a new buck or the same bug people are reporting about Silverstone .
Also frame rate was next to nothing , like the game had frozen .
Also set ups wouldn't load from garage on Silverstone Classic , but that has been like that since the DLC was released.

It feels alive to me now, i loved it before but even more so now whole physics has come alive always seemed a bit too planted, Forza 6 is a mess its like ice driving, but PCars was too much like on rails. I think this is the struggle its just got a bit harder.
I just wish Turn 10 could tone down their ice driving physics and get it close to PCars patch 7. Its wonderful now. Added to that since dash update the FR on PCars is much better, still has few tears but its much more bearable and in some cases its butter smooth. Happy camper here and with wheel i can cope with the new tyres pretty well you just have to work the wheel like a real racer. Some of the cars i'm like "wow i was really having a work out there".

Thanks for the reply. I'm curious to see how I'll like the change then.

Edit: The change is not at all as drastic as portrayed by Mascot. Just took the RUF GT3 for another spin around Nordschleife and barely noticed any changes. All the typical characteristics are still there, if anything it's even a bit more nimble now, as dopedogz pointed out.

I don't know it in the case of the RUF R-GT8, but I notice that the Bentley GT3 car is behaving differently. Prior patch 7 it was quite solid, but now I have the feeling that I am driving on ice.

In career mode I compete within the European GT3 class and won the first 2 races on 65% difficulty quite easily (during patch 6). The third race is on Spa (a track is know quite well) and after the first practice I am by far the slowest on 65% difficulty. Or did the AI became super fast in patch 7? Anyone some ideas?

EDIT: Just tried the McLaren GT3 car on Spa and it feels "normal", not slippery at all. Seems a car specific change I guess?

I quite enjoy patch 7.0 , Aston Gte feels more alive also and Im certainly kept busy with steering corrections however I now find it harder to catch the rear when it breaks loose . Tyres are harder to keep up to temperature and I do miss the tyre management aspect .

Keep up the good work sms.

I'm really looking forward to trying out the UDP steam soon.

I was hoping to see fixes, for admittedly minor issues, such as our car resetting to P30 LMP1 after restarting the game after quitting while having a DLC car or circuit selected.

Hopefully for v8.00 we can save our preferred livery for cars too.


5.8GB? Are you sure that's not the cumulative total of all updates to date?

I am just downloading the patch 7.00 now. Unless it also includes previous patches then it is just around 5.8GB. So my guess is that there are more changes in it as i don't think the changes mentioned would justify such a large patch file. I was also hoping for a more detailed list of patch notes.

What are the chances that we both have identical parameters, FFB settings, tyre pressures, aero, suspension settings etc etc etc? I'll give you a clue: not much. YMMV, but in my experience the change IS drastic. Drastic enough for me to post about it.

right click the pcars.exe and click properties. there's a tab there with the version info.

By default Steam installs updates automatically when they are available unless you disable that per game, IIRC.

When you start steam you can see it in the bottom of the window how many updates there are to do and if you click it you can see the progress.
