Please use this thread to discuss patch 3.0 for PS4.


For those new to Project CARS, the patch threads are NOT for discussing what is NOT in the patch. The patch threads are for discussing what IS contained in the patch. Other posts will be removed.

The clutch didn't fixed. H pattern gearbox cars changing gears without using the clutch. Very disappointing.
The intro looks better.
The sound i think is better.
Graphics at nurburgring stays bad (a lot of pixels on the road from the shadows of trees).

It didn't make the patch. It doesn't mean that the devs aren't looking into it. Fixing things needs time and priorities need to be set.

Also, this thread is for discussing what is in the patch, not what is not in the patch.

Did a first short test after patch 3. First conclusions:
- The online championship is added !! :joyous:
- The lag when playing online is still there, when people are joining :(
- Online: The penalty system seems the have become more strict. I was not able to run a good lap during qualifying at Oulton Park, a circuit I'm quite familiar with and used to be able to drive clean and fast laps easily. :(
- Online: The penalties itself have become extreme... I got a 92 sec penalty for running a little wide in the last corner at Oulton Park, lifted when I saw the message that I had to slow down, coasted over the start/finish line and exactly then were penalised with 92 secs....??? :(
- Online: License points seem to be more impacted then before, at least I lost 14 point in the race at Oulton park (where I was actually winning a four people race, but lost due to the 92 sec penalty).. I assume it will not only be going down this fast, but also going up if you do win.. :joyous:
- And you can now easily see what tuning is loaded in the menu :joyous:

so far my first experience with Patch 3

488 has been super nurfed, was doing mid 46's around monza now I'm 49.
MP lag is better but still hits but only for a second when players are entering and exiting a lobby.
I like that we can see what tune has loaded

I believe that likely has to do with your tires not being worn out yet, and options you can set related to tire choice... but I'm working blind here, since I'm in USA and we apparently don't have patch 1.3 yet

- Graphics are still looking worse than project cars 1
- No anti aliasing

It's not really clear to me what you need to do after downloading the patch?
Do I need to delete all my saved data and start over?
So, essentially all career progress and existing setups completely lost?

Zenzic
07-12-2017, 17:35
Deleting your career and profile would probably be a last resort if you have severe issues. All I read was you have to start with fresh setups when tuning cars, not load setups you saved pre-patch.

I am. But the game feels even more unresponsive than it did before. Just what have you guys done?

Also, just raced online at Monza and the framerate was horrendous. So much so, that l missed every apex, and so seemed the other participants.

I've noticed many improvements in this patch. However, at least in the regular PS4, I didn't notice any change regarding the AA, and IMO the graphics haven't changed since patch 2.0. There are still annoying tree shadows in Monza (and other tracks), a distracting static pixel net when dawn arrives (a mix of orange and red pixels which don't move at all in the sky).

I was doing an endurance race in Le Mans and when night arrived, it was raining...the AA made it really difficult to keep pushing without being distracted.

Lots of work there, so thank you 😉 but I was expecting at least a minor change in the graphics which I didn't notice.

I'm really looking forward for this graphic improvement in the next patch. Thank you!

Its dumb nonetheless and punishes you in the silliest of situations:

- Going wide and actually taking a longer route.
- During battles.
- When you have to avoid a crash or spinning cars.

so far my first experience with Patch 3

The 92 second penalty sounds like a full lap penalty for not serving the slow-down penalty before crossing the finish line. May wel be by design to prevent people cutting/cheating in the last lap if they manage to be quick enough to reach the finish line before the slow-down period ends.

My experience with patch 3.01 so far: Karts driving experience hugely improved, BUT:
- "Schwerer Schaden" (severe damage) shown from the beginning of the race
- no damage, no matter what I do! (yes, damage is enabled in the options)
I hope, I don't have to wait weeks like before these newly introduced bugs are fixed.

Playing on PS4 PRO

After the patch I noticed huge "blurry and unclear" outlines at the bottom and the right side of the screen it goes bigger when you're getting faster.

And a question which graphic mode is for the best graphic? I've got a 4k screen.

Is it "better graphics" or "higher resolution" to me the description is not 100% clear. So which mode looks best and had the most details. Sry for that dumb question.

Thanks to those who will answer my question. :)

Previously it would compare my times in say GT3 cars with the times of those driving a GT1 (same goes for Formula C, LMP2s, and so on.) Didn't see it in patch notes so I'm sorta worried.

This is my experience about the patch. First of all, thanks to the SMS Team for your work.

-The weather system is still broken if you choose more than 1 slot. However, the AI pace in rainy conditions (full rain race) is very good with 3.01 patch. Thanks for that.

-However, if you take 2 slots with random weather (or rainy) the AI doesn't pitstop at the right moment. I honestly think they pits very soon. In fact, I've tested a 20 laps race in Algarve (1 slot-Rain 2 slot-Sun) and AI has pitstopped at lap 5, when the asphalt was completely wet. Obviously the ran very very slow with dry tyres because of this reason...

-At the opposite situation (1 slot: Sun, 2 slot: Rain) the AI still pitstop in the first lap to change tyres.

Please, you have to address this issue.

On the other hand, I don't like the slowdown penalty. I don't mind track limits (it seems harder now, but it's the same for everybody) however, HOW DO I HAVE TO PERFORM A SLOWDOWN? Do I have to lift completely the throttle? How much time? Please you should explain the system...

Finally, in my third career race, with rain, I could see artifacts through rearview:


https://youtu.be/xN6lbZhvWtc

EDIT: I forgot it, in Algarve track I didn't see drying line when the rain stopped... I was surprised because I could easily see in the demo.

If your referring to Time Trial times, where all open wheel cars get lumped into one category, and such... that is said to be a limitation of consoles ( both PS4 and Xbox ) and not a bug.

I would like to know that as well, can’t really figure out which settings are the best with a ps4 pro on a 4K display with hdr.
So far it seems that “resolution” is better than “visual”.
With visual I’ve got the same blurry and washed out problem especially far on the horizon.

I was driving at Laguna Seca, Nissan GT3, offline personal event.
Cutted the track once, I decided to wait for the penalty because I wanted to test it, to check the amount of seconds: 1s
Cutted again after few laps: 2s
cutted again: 33s :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

cutted again and again and again (test purpose): 2s, 1s, 3s, etc....., no more such a penalty 33s !!

Can be a bug? maybe a bug in the gained time calculation

I was not able to reproduce the same penalty, even cutting 2-3 corners in a row

I am also lookig forward to money return for both blue ray and psn version of this game. Cant play it at all- all the time ce-34878 crashes- i even recorded a video how it happens all the time. Really frustrating- one of sms guyd told me in other topic, that patch will end this error- after it its all the same for me. Anyone with this problem? I ve done everything- even my console went to sony for two weeks, cleaning, initialising, system install, save of pc2 removed, nothing helps on my ps4 pro. Maybe someone from devs can give me a date when problems will be solved?

Video how it looks, after that bluescreen and ce-34878 every time.

Very disappointed with the patch. Game is now unplayable with Logitech G29 wheel, wheel moves violently left and right on the straights, making it near impossible not to crash. Other players' mics are still too loud in online lobby games, and muting doesn't work. Getting to the point of uninstalling the game for good now.

legacy-8
07-12-2017, 22:56
Firstly, great job SMS

Game feels great now on the G29 with a little bit of tweaking of ffb

Graphics look superb on my screen (PS4 Pro running on 28" gaming monitor) with very little AA, crystal clear and smooth

Just had a quick race, all was good!

One negative though, had a full system crash when I went to select a different car in private testing.

Need a little reminder. What's the best way to delete old setups as advised again? Without having to load each car, say in Practice, to manually load setups, select each one and delete. I think there's a way to go in Options...Saved whatever etc....but can't remember right now and don't want to delete something I shouldn't and regret later.

It's a beatch to have to delete whatever setups now but if that is what is advised I'd prefer to bite the bullet and do it.

BTW. I'm referring to PS4.

A couple of issues I've seen post patch on PS4 Pro:

1) The graphic fidelity seems to of gone back on one track. I just ran a custom 5 lap race - TC race rules - around Brno and the graphics tanked. Cars were popping in and out of their hi and low res textures within feet from me.

I thought it may of been the low level sun causing mass hysterior with the bloom etc so ran with clouds and still looked rough. Genuinely looked bad. I will run it again tomorrow to get some screen shots. It's strange as it's the first track I've come across causing such poor detailing. The game looks good pretty much across the board and I'm not a massive graphics junkie, but I have to say that that combination looked horrendous.

2) As someone else mentioned. Picking two weather slots going from dry to wet makes the AI pit within a lap. I ran a GT race around Le-mans for 10 laps and the AI pitted on lap one!! No rain came until lap 4/5.

On the plus side, AI is much more settled for pace and I'm seeing some AI battles and more errors. Overall feels very solid. Thank you SMS.

A couple of issues I've seen post patch on PS4 Pro:

1) The graphic fidelity seems to of gone back on one track. I just ran a custom 5 lap race - TC race rules - around Brno and the graphics tanked. Cars were popping in and out of their hi and low res textures within feet from me.

I thought it may of been the low level sun causing mass hysterior with the bloom etc so ran with clouds and still looked rough. Genuinely looked bad. I will run it again tomorrow to get some screen shots. It's strange as it's the first track I've come across causing such poor detailing.

2) As someone else mentioned. Picking two weather slots going from dry to wet makes the AI pit within a lap. I ran a GT race around Le-mans for 10 laps and the AI pitted on lap one!! No rain came until lap 4/5.

On the plus side, AI is much more settled for pace and I'm seeing some AI battles and more errors. Overall feels very solid. Thank you SMS.

That's a strange one. We don't bias the lodding at all per track. It's the same everywhere. Did you do a full power off and on again after installing?

Yes. I completely restarted as I wanted to make sure my new wheel was all connected.

As I said, I'll grab some screen shots. I used the TC BMW which has a rear view mirror dominating a lot of the screen. Can this combined with 31 cars and low sunlight combine to just cause to much load on the gpu?

You should sleep Ian. I've got a 3 week newborn, so I've got an excuse!!

Nah, we don't bias the lodding with load, just dynamic res. As I say it's an odd one but pass it for checking please mods.

Ce-34878-0 Crash has returned, this time it happens when trying to select a car in online lobbies. Had it happen 99% of attempts.

Done the hard reset as suggested by Ian, internet connection is perfect.

Could it possibly be that people are running different versions of the game now the patch is out?

Yes, incompatible for a short period while everyone gets on the same exe. It should resolve but I'm keeping an eye on it to report just in case. I suspect if it were a permanent and common issue Bandai Namco and/or Sony would have spotted it.

Right. I couldnt sleep so thought I'd load it up and see what we get. Short video shows what Im getting at with LOD changes, but I couldn't replicate it happening in front of my, but I started to get it running cars to the near sides.

This is my opinion, but it seems that the game has never really been a looker with low level sun. I just wonder if that effects visual intergrity a little more by showing up jagged edges clearer than if they were against darker backgrounds.

I'm running visual enhancement option aswell so I'm unsure what that's really done graphically.

So further to my earlier post about the Ce-34878-0 crash I just conducted an experiment. Set up an online lobby as a host, no one else in lobby, touring car class selected, went to change my car and got the same error as before. I’m no programmer but think this can rule out an incompatibility between versions.

Hope this gives you a bit more info to go on. My setup is below in my signature bar.

I've been having problems with the Visual option as well on my PS4 Pro. The objects on the horizon seem very low res and blurry.
It doesn't seem to happen with the Resolution option so that's the one I'm using right now.

I just want add that Brno is the first track I've had unusual issues with my wheel. The wheel involuntarily turns from central position to around 90 degrees left and right, swinging between these two points like it's calibrating. This happens after you press start race up until the light go green.

Same here. Works fine in the calibration app and sometimes in the game but then it gets lost. If I go back to the calibration and test them they both work then go back to the game it might work or it might not. It's kinda hit and miss? I also have the Formula Carbon Rim that has the rumble motors in it and it doesn't work either. If I'm not mistaken it reads the same signal as the brake.

I'm not sure what you mean by them working during calibration.. do you mean by testing via the Fanatec driver suite?

I don't think the rim motors are actuated by the brake/ABS function, they work the same as gamepad motors to an extent. Edit : My mistake... they are, of course, actuated by the ABS function. Oops.

the Formula Rookie front tyres wobbles/flicker alot in 3.0 patch every 400m around all the
tracks ive tested it on ... the wet tyre texture has improved alot there just got the wobbles

also the Zhuhai track has a misty/hazy look...... i set weather to a clear summer day 12.00

So the soft slicks won’t have any grip/use on hotter tracks? That doesn’t seem realistic they should work just not as long as harder compounds. They should actually provide more grip just wear out faster.

It's absolutely realistic. Don't be fooled by the oddly engineered F1 tyres... Soft tyres don't produce more grip. Tyres need to be in an operating window related to track temperature. And hards often give much more grip than softs depending upon that temperature.

EDIT, mods, maybe one of you can find this statement from Tommy Milner.

I've run a few more tracks with time of day and can say that's it's actually not the tracks, but the lighting and LOD on the vehicles which is causing shimmering on cars and weird issues around track ares like the edge of tarmac and edges of barriers etc. Maybe an AA issue? This has been worked on for patch 3 I believe?

Here's another short video where you'll see loads of the shimmering and LOD at the first corner. I would look at the second time round onto the straight aswell as this shows weird artefacting on trackside objects.

Found it,

The Hard tire, based on what the team would like to see, should be the go to tire for most conditions. The key here is the the compound is linked more to track temperature and not just an outright faster/softer tire. In today's world of tire compounds, rarely is it faster to run a tire that is too soft for the conditions; you run the tire appropriate for the track temperatures and that is the tire which will go the fastest. The days of a 'soft compound' that just goes off faster are pretty well gone, at least for GTE. So, the soft should work in cold temperatures and the hard should work in most others.

Yes, sorry. I meant in the Fanatec driver suit. It always works in the driver suit and only sometimes in the game. I haven't played around with it enough yet but I notice it works once I use the driver suit to test the pedals and then go to the game. Then once I turn off my console and come back the next day the vibration stops working again. Then I have to do it all over again. I play in the blue PS4 mode. I didn't much care for the compatibility mode. They both felt like a compromised experience so I just left it in blue mode. I sent an email to Fanatec about this to see if they had any input but haven't received a reply yet.

Not as far as V8 supercars are concerned. Soft tyres produce better lap times.

Are you sure you haven’t already got the patch installed? I’m in the uk and turned my PS4 on when I got home from work so it would download the patch automatically as i had something to eat as I knew it had already dropped. When I went back later to play the game there was no notification about a patch being downloaded so I did a manual check and it said my
game was the latest version so I gave the game a try and found that it was indeed version 3.01 but there still wasn’t the usual notification that scrolls on the top of the home screen that says an update has been downloaded...... strange?

I can assure you the patch isn't causing the game to crash on you, every attempt. This is clear as no one else is affected.

I'd rebuild your database and do a hard reset. In fact, I'd delete the game and download again. Install and hard reset your machine then play.

Fix#3. Reinstall the original hard drive

Remco (or anyone else on PC with CSPs) can you tell me what the functionality is with the brake vibration on your platform please... I.E. does it always work on brake lock-up in all cars, only on ABS equipped cars when the assist kicks in or is it not working at all?
I get brake vibration when I lock up under braking, no assists enabled.

Does somebody else have a problem with overheating front tires in GT3/GT4/GTE Cars? Did a 6 lap race yesterday in Algarve (track temp 48 degrees celcius) and on lap 3 my left front hard tire was already at 125 degrees celcius. The other tires were fine. After 5-6 laps the fronts were already worn over 20%. Is this intended? What can I do to keep the temperature down? I used the Standard Stable setup.

Spent some quality time with PC2 last night.....thank you SMS, what a superb game this is! Love it.

I run it on the PS4 Pro, and I'm actually amazed how well it performs. I have PC like graphics, with super smooth gameplay, what an achievement for a console game! Credit to both you as a studio and Sony for this fantastic bit of kit.

10/10 from me! Must go, I have my F40 warming up trackside!!! :cool:

Hi @Ian Bell (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/member.php?7-Ian-Bell) or anyone else who can advise.
Ian you advised to delete old setups. How do you do that without having to load each car and manually delete saved setups (which could be a tedious excercise)? PS4.

You can delete the save data from the PS4 in it's settings menu. Just make sure you don't accidentally delete your profile and career progress

You are probably understeering badly in the last corner (likely in other fast right hander corners too) and applying too much steering to compensate. ;)

Thank you for your answer. This might be the case, but the problem also occurs on other tracks like Long Beach etc. Before the patch my temperatures never hit the 100 degrees area, now they do all the time. Did a 10 lap race in Nürburgring GP, temperatures were better there but the tires were worn nearly 30% (only fronts).
Some other people seem to also encounter that problem. It is always the front tires, never the rear.

Central area of the US here, patch still hasn't dropped for me on PS4 yet and it's 5 in the morning here for me. Is this suppose to have released in the states by now? When I click on information it says I'm still using version 2.0 and when I click check for update it says I'm currently using the latest version.

You should try the loose setup I guess ;)
If your front tyres are still overheating, well, I don't know maybe it's PS4 related only.

I did 42 laps around Laguna seca in August (52°C track temp) and my front tyres were around 110°c overall. My rear right tyre was suffering a bit more though (around 115°c).
I didn't notice a huge difference compared to the patch 2.

The JIP is actually improved. We cut the judder by about half... Maybe some issues with incompatible exe's trying to join which will resolve itself when all have the patch.

OK heres my attempt to after updating to Patch3:

After Updating
Hard Reset the machine.
Start PC2 app

Goto Time trial -> Start Time Trial with Caterham SP300 @ Donnington National -> Load default Stable Setup -> Attempt to Exit Time Trial

GAME FREEZES
Background sounds can still be heard, but only a black screen with icons and buttons
Only Option is to press PS Button to close app and restart.

This has happens every time I attempt the above!!!

Also while in Time trial I attempted to adjust the Controller Settings (TM T300RS) and after adjustments were made, the game attempted to save them, but then froze at the saving icon.

Had to Close App again!!

Only way to adjust the wheel settings were to access the Controller menu from the Main Screen, not within Time Trial.

Minor issue is there is still the green and red flashes between the drivers legs at the footwell, at various locations on Donnington.
I thought it may be some Christmassy type of decoration, with the Drivers balls :)

Anyone else had issues like this??

The cars need re-tuning yes. I was doing mid 46s at Monza with the 488 but now I've slowed to low 149s.

But if I was to offer any advice to PS4 DS controller users then alter the controller settings first, mine were all over the place after the patch, I needed to max out the controller damping to 100, speed sensitivity to 100 and dumb down the steering sensitivity to 35.

Is 110 degrees celcius not way too much? I heard you should keep the hard tires around 90 or they wear too much.

Ian and SMS, well done and thank you.

I was going to write a long post but I'll keep it short. Whatever you have done, it works, I'm really enjoying the game again. I'm really looking forward to see what you guys have in store for the future.

One minor criticism, the penalty system needs tweaking - OK the track limits are incredibly harsh, I can live with that but when you get the 'slow down' message, there's no way of knowing how much to slow down, maybe a progress bar would be useful to show us how much we need to slow down? Also, a tiny, tiny cut results in a disproportionate amount that you have to slow down.

And while I'm at it, one feature request - please, please, introduce more filters for online lobbies - particularly a 'not' filter - On PS4 90% of the measly 20 lobbies are GT3 - I would love to be able to filter out the GT3s to make use of the other amazing cars you have put into this game. With so much depth of history available to drive it amazes me people just want GT3 at Monza, please SMS, make it happen.

Here's to the future.

seb02

after a few hours on it since the update :

- the sound has been greatly improved
- IA is better in first turn but there is still work
- Online championship is there but WITHOUT IA so no interest for me
- The SUGO circuit is still experiencing slowdowns on the first corners (test with 15 IA only in GT3 in custom race). Slowdowns also on Nurburgring.
- No graphic improvement on the standard ps4.
- The Ford Fusion is still undriveable on the Monza Oval.

I will continue testing this weekend.

First of all thanks for the team for the latest patch which finally fixed the FFB when using a Fanatec CSL steering wheel. I just had a blast completing my first career race and would like to share some of my observations. Minor disclaimer: I’ve done some UI testing as part of my job so some of the stuff is a little bit nitpicky. The larger problems (AI inconsistency) have already been mentioned before so I won’t mention them once again.

System: PS4 Pro, 1080p Monitor


Minor issues (random Order)

1. Green screen after watching the series into video
The screen goes completely green for a few ms after watching the intro video of a racing series. Nothing major but I’m sure there’s a way to get rid of it

2. Driver initials are capitalized when creating a new driver but displayed normally during a race
247079


3. Reflections from the curbs inside the cockpit
The red curb color shines through the cockpit when driving over curbs which can be a little bit annoying
247080
(Hard to see on the screenshot)


Other observations

The game looks a lot better when using High Resolution compared to enhanced visuals
That’s probably not what most people would expect and I'm sure there would be less complaints if "enhanced visuals" really offers the best visuals.


Manufacturers affinity is account wide despite being available in the drivers profile view
My newly created driver profile already had some events unlocked from my previous driver profile (which i have deleted before). I would expect the affinity to be related to the current driver since the manufacturer page is only available through the driver profile view.


That’s all for now but I can make some notes during my next races if there's interest for such minor issues.

Jonyvf
08-12-2017, 19:17
My impression:
Game changer
The grafics are improved in PRO
The tires looks fixed in career mode
Now driving a TCR Mercedes A45 is fantastic
The downshift protection now works very well

To play the game the improvements are great but...
Online needs work

Penalize system too much agressive and i think needs work too

And a feature that i need a lot is a possibility to create a Championship with IA like the online championship
Ian Bell if you put that feature in the game than your game definitely get another level

Well done

Reporting from Alberta, no patch yet. All my racing friends are in GMT or CET time zones, all updated - unlike us poor North Americans - so, of course, I can't join the lobby. I guess I'll have to wank away in career mode and time trials all weekend (I need the practice anyway). Or join some NA only lobbies, I suppose. Because, as ant1897 said, we're probably screwed until next week, seeing as it's early Saturday in Japan. However, I believe SCEA/SIE has a system where devs can see what progress is being made in testing, etc, so perhaps SMS/BN can give us a hint? (hint hint)

During development for sure, but when the players began to hate and at some points there are right to do so (like now) SMS goes silent. Those are crucial times when 1/3 of the players are left in the dark with the evergreen statement “ we are investigating” And most problematic is that with the version mismatch there are many updated players that can’t play.

A reply to a post on Project CARS' Facebook page also said the NA patch was imminent, 5 hours ago. Tried PlayStation support earlier and they said Bandai Namco NA would have to be contacted since they are supposed to send SCEA, in essence, to have patch submitted to them and once its passed testing, it would be released. Sent a tweet to BandaiNamcoUS for any clarification and updates. Per usual, no reply at all, a bit of a Genesis music lyrics there.

Instead of simple resetting as you did perhaps you should try actually deleting the old setups first. Here's the advice on how to do so kindly shared earlier by @Sum Dixon-Ear. I've just done it myself. Instructions (plus some additional elaboration from me):

Deleting (old) saved car tune setups:


Quit the game and go to the homescreen, then - Settings>Storage>System Storage>Saved Data> Project CARS2, in there you will find set ups, ghosts, profile and career save, press 'Options' and individually select all your set ups for deletion.
……When satisfied you’ve selected what you want to delete (Pause and double-check to see a check mark next to each item you wish to delete (but no other items) and also to make sure you don’t delete anything else you didn’t want to delete)….. Scroll to select “Delete”…click…and voila, you’re done.

Emailed Bandai Namco support but won't expect an answer from them.

In Photo Mode the new Tracking Speed function appears to be bugged which has ruined the experience.

It is now near impossible to take a photo of the car without some dreadful blurring and the effect is wildly inconsistent. Photo Mode has seen a great fix where the Filter Intensity now works but this undone by this new issue. Fixing this and adding the option to invert the Y-Axis for the Photo Mode camera would be nice elements of the next update.

No patch. Had a league race tomorrow, I guess I don't now as all of those guys are in Europe...

Pretty much. If this thing doesn’t land this weekend, our Monday race is postponed.

Is 110 degrees celcius not way too much? I heard you should keep the hard tires around 90 or they wear too much.

Hards are working good enough until they reach 115°c, maybe 120°c maximum.
They're not as good as when they're around 90°c obviously but it's the same for everybody in the race.
Regarding the wear, I had no problem for my one hour long race.

Just had an amazing race - the invitational lightweights in the rain at Snetterton. I do think that I was suffering far more aquaplaning than the AI although I would follow them through a puddle, see their tyre tracks where the water had been displaced and follow through the same track and aquaplane less, brilliant.

One bug I've noticed - if the engineer talks to you while driving, the overall car volume remains low (PS4 Pro, all sound through TV).

Hello everyone.
Following the update, I ran a race on the Texas Oval. I know that the AI ​​will be reworked for the next patch especially with regard to the entrance of the stands. Thank you.
I noticed one thing and I would like to share it with you. The AI ​​seems adaptive.
Custom race / 15 opponents / IA 10% (above, the AI ​​is really too fast for me) with Ford Fusion.
The race starts, I'm faster than the AI of 0.600 s and I take the 1st place. As soon as I'm first, the AI ​​improves its time by 0.600 s (from first to last). I slowed down so that the AI ​​was in front (5 cars) and there, the AI ​​turns less fast of 0.600 s.
I started the race again and it was the same thing. I tested with the Indycar on the same circuit and it's the same thing. It is surprising. Have you noticed that?

Ian, I love the Texas circuit, is it possible to improve the original setup for the oval (Ford Fusion and Indycar) or add a Texas setup ? In any case, thank you for this track.

I had already noticed slowdowns on the SUGO circuit (I do not know why but this circuit is not fluid on the PS4 standard even with 15 cars). There is also Nurburgring (firsts turns) and I want to add COTA (1st turn). I hope this can help the SMS team. Thank you

Other people keep saying delete all previous setups ,I still have mine from when I bought the game from day 1 and started tuning,

What I have noticed is beat the pro at longbeach on community events,if you pit in and once pit crew have changed your tyres ,just sit there and watch tyre temps go up by themselves,they went from 250 to 300 just sitting there ,so I don't know if that was a one off or I've stumbled on to something,

Also on ps4 on ffb graph it did show what wheel you have but since patch 3.0 just show SMS v ,

But these are tiny things that doesn't affect game

But i 've reinstalled game a few times, so it still can be an issue? After system reinstall PC2 was only game on the console- problem still happens.

No I haven't upgraded hard drive, it's an orginal one, Sony checked it when I sent console to them, no problems found.

Is it possible, that if I install the game on external HDD- game could work properly?

If you're only uninstalling pCARS2 then it will reinstall in the same area of the HDD. You should remove one or more games you don't need on there and try again.

Hello. When the manual pit control is off, the car/AI cannot exit the pit lane, it crashes into the wall.
It's in the G40J second cup series, when the AI wants to exit at Knockhill National. The turn to the left is too sharp for the AI.

Seen this too, but car does not take damage (I'm driving with damage "on") and after the first hit it usually makes it out of the pit lane. Did the event yesterday.

Otherwise I like the patch very much :-)

I used to be online and now it's offline. before the game had bug of which I have not complained. I adapted to the way it came to market. but what is now is a serious case. I had to sacrifice my games and data saved in the console for that? To spend € 60 on a game that I can not play. This is to take letters in the Subject. If they have to go back to patch 2 they come back and leave us the fun game that was. the people who complained so much about bugs and bugs that they buy themselves a race car and they go to a circuit to run, but to leave us alone to others.

Have you got the latest patch because it might be a simple case of you haven't and you are trying to race online with people who have the latest update or vice versa,

Also check your subscription is up to date on psn ,and check you have Atleast 50gb of spare ps4 storage,

Or someone has hacked your wifi which is getting more and more common with certain niegbbours,

Plus depending on who supply your network provider,in some cases they throttle the network,
In uk BT does not throttle the system as Rambo doesn't allow this ,Sky does throttle there network and talktalka doesn't throttle wifi network, basically your wifi,

Also you might have as an example mcafee blocking your router ,which certainly means they are doing there job by keeping you safe online

Hope this helps

Hi. thank you very much for your attention. About what you say everything is in order except one factor. 50GB ... I think I have about 35GB left in the console. Otherwise it is in order. In addition, the error also comes to me in Offline mode, which makes me think that pirates must be very very pirate ...

Edit: I have to rectify. I'm free 138gb

Racing at sugo in the ir 12 Honda road with 3 weather slots and a mandatory pit stop in single player. I set the weather slots to sunny, cloud and snow. The race starts in dry and sunny conditions but the whole grid is on wet tyres instead of using the mandatory pit stop when the snow starts.

I think you can do it with the joypad (not the steering wheel) with R3 and [] button. I expected they solved this issue with a big MUTE ALL button in the patch 3.0 but... :(

I see this guy got banned for some reason - I imagine some posts have been removed somewhere along the way...

Anyway, just wanted to say I too have this problem on PS4 PRo/Enhanced Visuals (I think). This is a legitimate concern as I thought my TV had broken! Glad it's just a scanning issue or something, but still a bit distracting. I'll try a different graphical fidelity mode and see if it goes away.

Apart from that, love the patch! Thanks for the update and looking forward to the DLC to come!

Did a bit more testing yesterday. When you drive out of the pit in the first few seconds you can see the described behavior. If you wait for ~30sec so that the other cars have left - no problem.
So it's not an issue with a to sharp turn, seems to be caused by AI influencing your line.

This happens to me too. It's not quite EVERY time for me - I've been able to select a car a couple of times now, but in the vast majority of times it crashes.
People suggest that it's because not everyone is on the 3.01 patch, but I saw it happen yesterday (Sunday) in a room where there weren't many players and everyone else was also in the UK (where I am) so presumably should all have the same version, although I suppose it's possible that someone didn't wait for the patch to complete before they played.
You should really make sure that only people with the same version can join a lobby, otherwise we're not racing like-for-like even ignoring crashes like this.

Hey Ian, unfortunately changing HDD helps nothing.

So thanks to you guys, I spent additionaly 350 PLN without any reason, to play your game. I sent a report of my specific error- 20:33 CET today. Could you please check what the hell is wrong with it? New HDD used, new system installed, ps4 pro, the same sympthoms, after 20-30 seconds of riding any car on any track- game freezes, then PS4 restarts and showing CE-34878-0. Text with report attached- it will be easier to find for you. Please of an explanation- what causes my freezes with you game?

So it appears that we've resolved this issue internally. We couldn't reproduce it, none of our staff with a Pro could reproduce it. Our external QA group couldn't reproduce it either. But it appears to be related to front end memory buffers we pre-set and a certain group or combination of cars, if loaded in the front end, overflow the memory limits of one of the buffers. We therefore as a test reduced the size of the buffer and managed to get the same crash each time. So we're 99.9% sure that was the cause of the issue. The buffer size has been comfortably increased and we're pushing it out in a hot patch as soon as we're allowed.

Looking forward to being able to get back racing properly again when the patch drops.

When saving a tuning modification to an ALL tracks tune, if it is saved over, it moves to a track specific tune.
TBF saving over a track tune functions as expected.
Saving to a new tune, then selecting the All tune you intend to modify still works as in patch 2.0.

It may work as intended till you establish a track tune as I failed to note the issue till I saved a track tune.

Could someone independently confirm?

I deleted all my tunes prior to installing the update.
