    [reported]Frozen screen at the end of the qualifying session in multiplayer

    We had an event this afternoon and several players had an issue.

    At the end of the qualifying session when they crossed the finish line, they got a frozen screen.

    They had to close the application or reboot the ps4 to recover.

    I also had something similar happening since Patch 5.
    It doesn't completely freeze for me, but it does seem to freeze, then go fast forward, freeze, fast forward, etc. It usually freezes for about 2 or 3 seconds, then starts again but fast forwards to the place it should be. Very strange.
    I hasn't happened in every on-line race, but at least half of them, so far.
    I didn't have to reset or restart. I was able to go 'back to pits' and then it was fine after that.

    In patch 4 sometimes the game froze after crossing the finish line in quali. In patch 5 i had the same experience as Atak-Kat44 twice this evening.

    Been having this issue on the Xbox as well, seems to be a console issue.

    Weirdly enough most of the time it's happened it was at Donnington.

    This happend also for PC. Friday Qualifiying @ "Nordschleife combined" two Cars (GT3) of 16 got frozen at the finish-line and they had to restart the game. So this might be a crossover-probelm

    I also had this issue this weekend at the end of the qualifying session playing in a public race on PC (not in all races). And I had to restart my PC because I was unable to close the game or exit to desktop.

    I think it is a problem with patch 5 because it's the first time I had this issue after many races with previous versions. In case it could help, I had this problem with the BMW of TC class at Red Bull Ring and with the Audi of GT3 class (normal version, not endurance) at Barcelona Circuit.

    I'm now having the same issue. I work around this by pitting via the Option button to avoid the Start/Finish line when the session express. A normal pit entry may fall victim if your pit is beyond the Start/Finish.

    There's a workaround unless you get a complete freeze (be interesting to find out if Pro don't total freeze but vanilla PS4 does... any experiences?).

    After you go over the line (or before if you always get a total freeze), hit 'Option>Return to Pits'.

    Don't wait long (you might total freeze). I pretty much do it the minute I cross the line. So far, no problems...

    Mind you, if you plan to hit it before the line, might as well drive into the pits a lap early!
