    24hr Le Mans Ragequit...

    I feel the need to tell somebody my story...

    I was doing the 24hr Le Mans race on 1% (2 hours), done 40 minutes, it was lap 10 and it was night time, time to pit. I messed up my pit entrance and the stupid AI crashed into the wall, so I lost my nose with the headlights on it. So now, I had no idea where the fu.. I was going! And I am not going to restart and do a whole hour of racing all over again, but I also don't want to retire, it's my first Le Mans so I want to finish it.

    So I just turned it off. Might have to turn damage off next time, in case something stupid happens, not worth the risk on such a long ass race. -.-

    Perhaps I could have put in the AI driver in the pit stop and let the AI drive until daylight? I wasn't thinking at the time.

    Thread is kind of pointless, but yeah... It is "General Discussion" though.

    The pit stop would have repaired it.

    The pit stop doesn't fix your lights though otherwise it wouldn't matter

    I honestly wouldn´t mind the damage if the race wasn´t that long. 1 hour as minimum length would be enough - 2 is just too long. Especially because if you do decide to turn damage off and make the AI easy to make sure you win even if you spin out occasionally, it just gets extremely boring.

    I thought it did? Fixes everything on mine, although not sure I've broken my lights.

    No it doesn't fix the lights mate, this is a known issue, you are right it fixes everything else although don't be surprised to see it not actually replace body panels- this has happened to me a few times.

    I've now had the game crash a few hours into a race 4 times in the Endurance Championship, twice on Le Sarthe so I've abandoned the season. I can take crashes in 4-5 lap races but not when I've put 1-2 hours into a race- in total I've raced approx 6 hours with no finishes.

    Love the game but hope this gets sorted.

    An hour of racing is long for you people? I have run full races before in racing games 3 hours plus.
    Normal people think the same things that creepy people do, but just decide that it's a bad idea.

    HAHA you think that's bad, my first run trying for FULL 24hr race was little over 5 hours in when AI clipped me in Porsche curves as I was slowing for GT car infront, the AI driver came around the outside hit my front wheel causing steering to go off center, The pits call me in due to damaged suspention, ok all good I thought id do 1 more lap as didn't feel too bad, made it to pit entry lap after and Engine blew soon as I left the track to enter Pits.... I was Soooooo pissed off..... I have since completed and Won the 24hr race real time with a mate. but learned to gear it and drive it so as NOT to risk anything, averaging 5 to 10secs off Qualli Pace through the race especially after we got over a full lap lead.

    Also if your damaging car breaking Headlights your not in the head space for 24hr racing, its not a sprint its full defencive driving just surviving and staying on lead lap, the AI tend to stop more than you do as the hours pass so gear top gear so your not quite in the redline, slow the car underbrakes before changing down so as not to ping engine, learn to lift and coast to save brakes and fuel use the Motec dash function pages to monitor Engine oil water tire temps brake temps and Fuel per lap makes for interesting race to watch this and try to get best lap for least fuel

    FYI 24hours Lemans little over 400 laps fire it up

    I'll happily race for 5 hours but not when there is a fair chance the game will crash, it becomes a waste of time, over 9 endurance races I've had it crash on 4 of them! I've probably just had bad luck but I don;t have to pile hours into races that may go bang!
