    Replay saves

    I know Iíve mentioned this once or twice, but I just thought Iíd post this as in issue to just get it out there. This regards the replays saves and the ridiculous amount of memory that one replay save takes up. As Iíve stated before this was one feature I was really hoping to explore and really make the most of with some good multi-class races. Sadly though this isnít the case as it appears one replay save just takes up the whole drive which is ridiculous in my personal opinion. If Forza and gran Turismo allow you to save multiple 30 minute replays, why canít project cars do the same? Personally I think it would be good if PC2 had a spectator mode, one where the AI drives your car for you, instead of starting the race, then retiring before switching to spec mode, which I tend to do. Itís a bit obscure I know but at least there you still get to watch the racing that way.

    The replay file size is limited in pcars, I can't recall the max size/ time as I don't use replays but it does not fill your drive.

    First party franchise titles have a lot more freedom... Everyone else has to play by the rules set by the platforms (and they each have a set limit on how much data can be stored per game).

    Even so to me it doesn't make sense. If your going to have a feature in a game then why can't they set it up properly like the previous games? Even so, at least they do have a spectator mode on there even if you have to start a race and then retire before you can access it. I hope this is something they can correct for the future.

    I agree the replay size limitation is really frustrating and makes it very difficult to use as a means of producing a post race recording from the various camera angles. When I do manage to do so I have to spend the time to record it before my next race to free up the space again. PITA.... don't know why the large HDD can't be utilised for these replays.

    OK...based on this answer....So why do have the SMS an Instagram or Facebook account? These things are just part of the game (life) nowadays. You need to keep in touch with the your audience, players, and the racers. We (I mean people who try to organize online races and leagues on xbox) try to make the races (and the game itself) attractive by making videos and photos (hours and hours work).
    Hey, people...check this out...how cool is to race in Project CARS 2, come race with us on xbox.

    Be honest, the XBOX is not the best platform for the Project CARS 2, but we are enthusiastic and after 3 year (started with project cars 1 and 6 persons on the grid) already have an almost full grid even in out smaller Czech and Slovak community and racing on regular bases. This achievement has been mainly reached by advertising through photos and videos from our races!!!!

    PLEASE !!! I know there is many obstacles, but please stay motivated to improve the game. Make at least one meeting to discuss thing, check a possibility and sacrifice 100 person-hours to solve this. If there is no way say ok, sorry guys, but constantly blaming Microsoft is one thing, but make some actions a show how good developers are you is another thing. Or do kind of developer diary on YouTube...share your obstacles maybe some programer know the solution and will help to you...

    I couldn’t agree more with you Hammerpgh. I personally think a replay system that can manage multiple replays and have spectator modes for races should be more actively encouraged. Certainly for drivers so who are not so good at driving themselves but love car racing, should have the chance to enjoy the experience of Project Cars 2 be it watching races or driving.
