Amazing job on fixing the most glaring issues so quickly, SMS. Everything runs as smooth as silk. Now this game has become what l had been looking for since the announcement.
Thank you!

What are you talking about? Has the patch been released? Nothing on my end yet.

EDIT - I'm on PS4 btw.

Patch not showing up for me. PS4, North America. Haven't tried joining any MP yet, but I'm going to presume that will be an issue until everyone is on the same revision.

Same here. North America / CST. From what I've been reading seems like it may have rolled out in the EU first?

Anyone have an idea of the regional roll out schedule if that's how it's being done?

Should be in the next few hours

Houston, TX so westish I suppose.

Not a big deal frankly, staged roll out is probably necessary for technical reasons. We've waited this long, a few more hours shouldn't hurt . . .

Great patch SMS. This, is the game that I paid for.
My face hurts because I'm smiling so much.

Ice driving is now a real thing. Nice work!

Wet weather racing is something else. I've been power-sliding through some corners and the feel of the deep puddles is really good.

I whole heatedly agree 100% ...... "Amazing Job" I can't believe how many things got fixed in one version upgrade. I got the upgrade early this morning and have be in it for the last several hours going through my usability issues list. Thanks a million to the whole team.

I'm curious, has the weather been changed now for those full snow races in the career mode? (people were complaining GT3 1st race was in full snow and I believe the final one of Formula Rookie as well)

Just done the update.

1st problem (I know it's small) - when driving the Indy car the Boost button comes on as soon as you hit the track (in time trial). I'm now slower as I don't have the time to get the car up to speed before hitting the button.

"2.0 Is now available in the U.S.

It didn't kick off manually but when I hovered over the game and hit the options button and check for updates it kicked it off.

6.693gb and with 100mbps connection estimated download time for me is 22 minutes."

I'm downloading the update now (US East Coast). My notification popped up telling me an update was available when I quit playing the game. The update is just over 14 GB for me, but I bought the game digital download, so I think that has an impact on update size.

11-10-2017, 23:31
Well I was up until past 2.30am having waited for the download and quickly jumping into a quick race just to see how things were. My experience -

- The very whitish oversaturated opening video has not been fixed

- The graphics are still awful

- Damage sustained in a race still carries over to the replays, right from the start

-AI are still crashing into me as though its a demolition derby

I'm sure lots of issues have been addressed, but not noticable for me after just quickly dipping into it. It's still the ugliest game I own on the PS4 (I've recently upgraded to a Pro & a 4K HDR TV and that barely helps).

You need to make sure the auto upconvertor in your tv is actually being used.
That means do “not” ever use a 4k hdr tv in ‘Game Mode’. Its disabled in that mode
LGs auto kick the tv mode out of game mode when HDR kicks in, but others I believe you need to do manually.
Looks great on mine *Shrug*

(Also make sure if you do use an LG to re adjust settings in HDR mode, its not the same as HDR emulation mode when no HDR is present). In fact you cant even edit color settings for HDR mode unless something is actively running HDR.

Just an example for time, it took me about 4 hours of changing settings for all my inputs, then another hour once i launched something in HDR and realized thats yet another mode o edit settings in.

Since you just recently upgraded thats most likely the case.
Games without hdr look fine vs that^. cause alot dont realize you need to edit tv settings again.

Dont forget to enable deep color modes either, this is usually not in picture settings, but general settings hidden away and makes tons of difference.

And last not sure if you have a psvr but it has to be disconnected from the back of the ps4 when not being used otherwise you wont get 4k/hdr

Patch 2.0 looks the same. Anti-alias isn’t good enough

pCars2 looks like an arcade game and feels like a real car.

GTS looks $1m and feels like a first class arcade sim.

Do 4k tvs still have problems with input lag when running without gamemode?

i have a TCL 4K tv, input lag on HDR+1080p is 13ms, and 17ms on 4k+HDR.
i can tell you i don't feel any difference switching from BenQ 1ms gaming monitor to a 49" 4K TV. but it might be me.

This isn't a bug but a minor request.. When choosing a vehicle for custom race I like to select by class rather than by manufacturer, so I know exactly what I can choose from. Every time I go into custom race I have to click R2 as it isn't remembered by the game from the previous time.

I know there are many other bigger issues but every little helps :cool:

Well done ladys and gentlemen at SMS,
Patch 2.0 on ps4 has just made my day, no more menu hanging, it's made a brilliant game even more brilliant,
It's good to moan lol,
Food for thought are we going to in future updates do a enhanced details as some details on standard ps4 are the same,unless I need to go to spec savers,
And a big thanks again SMS as I can use my dash app and it works even quicker,

This is why ladies and gents I didn't want a refund because I knew it was a brilliant game, you can't compare GT sports as its child like and arcade standing beside a Pcars 2 ps4
Quick question can we have 25 multiplayers like the PC version please,
Don't stop now and keep the updates coming

senna94f1
12-10-2017, 11:19
Of course you are only kidding aren't you,
The patch is brilliant, sorry to say GT sports is atotally arcade and not a sim,
The way you will find out is if you use a ffb wheel,
Pcars 2 on ps4 is a sim racing game, and you don't have to race to get another car like u do in GT sports.

Looking forward to feeling everything out soon. Has anyone tried the Ford Fusion Stock car? Have updates to the force feedback helped it not clip?

To me yesterday's patch fixed the problems, that was making the game unplayable. Now I'm able to play. This was a step to the good direction and more fixes are coming. But after next patch I hope we get some news from the PSVR support.

I don't understand the competition of GT Sport and pCARS2.
I play GT Sport, because of the better graphics, PSVR support, "Lewis Hamilton school", different cars and different tracks.
I play pCARS2, because of the damage modelling, dynamic weather, different cars and different tracks.

I think both games are realistic to drive and there are plenty of setup options.

True that. While I appreciate the smoothness of the GT exerience, so polished, a few things make GTS unusable for few

-horrific bumper car AI that pushed you out of the way if your breaking point or line is different to theirs. Try the 6 lap interlagos mission race and see if you are happy after being rammed off the course in the last lap
-tire sounds are very unrealistic and squeely. Like the prior poster said, they are Outrun like bad
-bad track selection in GTS, no spa, no silverstone. None of the other great real world tracks pcars2 has brought to the table like Oschersleben, Zolder are there. I did not know about these tracks other than knowing they were used for DTM, GT racing. But thanks to pcars now I know why, they are excellent tracks. Even Asseto Corsa suffers for it's track selection now, not because they have a bad selection, but because their small teams means they had to focus on Italian tracks primarily. Pcars2 really is the benchmark for tracks now.

In sum pcars2 next to AC are my goto sims, GTS is great for general car porn activities :) ie looking at them in showroom and learning manfuacturers backgrounds but the driving is simply not good enough anymore in 2017.

The only aspect of driving pcars2 should take note of is the gamepad model, which is miles better on GTS.

The first thing I tried was Mercedes, but the setups won't save... keeps dry tires on the rear and you spin out. I just made a thread about this before I saw your post.

Boy this game is frustrating.
