    Congratulations to SMS & WMD but I have problems

    First and foremost, congratulations to SMS and WMD for making an exceptional game, all things aside, the game is fantastic, it's beautiful in terms of graphics, the sounds are spot on and the day/night and weather cycles and effects are very very good. The controls issue that everyone has mentioned, I have managed to find a good setup that works for my driving style across most of the different classes with the exception of 125cc karts. I usually have to change my speed sensitivity but apart from that the control scheme I have is good. If anyone wants it, please let me know.

    I do have issues in terms of graphics and FPS/Lag. On most of the tracks that I've raced on, when I come into a turn and get onto the brakes the game seems to slow down and go into a slow motion sort of effect, going through the turn and accelerating out of the turn the game suddenly jumps and speeds up. All of this has been noticed in the Career menu, Time Trial, Practice and Quick Weekend seems to be okay but the only Quick Weekend race I've done is Silverstone National with Clio Cup, 12 laps and 32 cars. No problems what so ever. Loved it. Very competitive and I can throw the Clio into the corners and the handling is lovely!

    I have installed the game on my Western Digital 4TB USB 3.0 External HD, I don't have any issues with any other games, just with this one. I am going to try to move the game onto my internal XBox One hard drive which should make things a bit better. Anyone else got the same issues?

    A massive congratulations and pat on the back for the devs though. I know they're getting a lot of stick for the problems but they have made a very good game. I for one think it has MASSIVE potential to be a top contender in the racing genre. Hats off to you guys, you deserve all the good praise you get! It's not going unnoticed, at least from this gamer!

    This is looking to me like an issue associated with your external hard drive. We have specific read speed knowledge of internal kit but external is a whole new can of worms.

    Regardless, we're looking into it and sourcing the specific kit you have.

    I have mine installed to the external hard drive too and haven't encountered that issue. Is this when playing single player or multiplayer?

    Thank you for your reply and congratulations to you and your team! I'm going to move everything over to my internal hard drive and report back, theoretically it should be better . No doubt you guys will fix all of the problems soon enough. It's an amazing game.

    Hopefully you guys have something in the pipeline for WTCC, DTM, V8SC or BTCC style cars . You'd make this fan extremely happy if anything like that got introduced!

    Single player only buddy. I've only noticed it in the Career mode, I was racing in RTC1 with the 1M but I also noticed it with the Ford Escort RS Cup at Sonoma. I rarely play online, I don't have the skills to keep up in brutal honesty!

    Thanks Sonic and I can safely say there's a lot coming that will excite and titillate.
