Are the Special events even possible?

    i tried the first special event, bmw m3 e92 on magione, impossible with a controller...
  2. I've not tried the Xbone version yet, but I've owned the PC version for a while now and it's the same... Many special events are very difficult. I use the same TX wheel on both version as my rig runs PC/Xbone and the PC version is much better in regards to car feel and FFB, not to mention graphics... But some of the times required are tuff to achieve.

    Thought I read on here there had been two patches, the day one patch, then another the next day. As always, I could be wrong.

    First event at Magione is extremely difficult to meet gold. Using TX wheel. Going to have to find some corners to cut quite a bit. Hoping not to have TCS off for half the lap and then have to turn it on as someone said earlier. Not sure how I'm gunna take a whole second off though...

    Edit: Didn't mean to quote anyone.

    I love the F40, love Mugello.
    Raced endless laps on it in other games.

    I mananged a 2:01 on my first fast lap.
    That was close to silver on PC but not even bronce on consoles.

    Seriously Kunos.

    Its just lap-time limits and obliviously it was not spendet enough time
    in this.

    This is really a halfed-assed conversion from PC to console.
    The balance is ruined, the testing was not done at all.

    Thank you, happy to help. I fully agree, untested & unbalanced.

    It's not close to silver on PC because there's less grip in special events on PC than on consoles...
    And it plays major roles in lap times. Too bad you see only one side of a coin which is faster lap times needed to get medals, but you don't see that you got better conditions to achieve those lap times.

    Yes, some events are unbalanced, this one (F40 S3 @ Mugello) isn't.

    I think it would be helpful if you added this is your personal opinion and the perspective of a pc player. The devs have not confirmed any of this to be the case and until they do the difficulty jump remains an issue that those of us playing on console would like looked into. Just a polite request not to play down issues many independent tests have demonstrated with inconsistent difficulty in this game on console.

    Then please do simple comparison of grip levels in that particular event* between two versions of the game that you have. I showed you how to do it but for some reason you didn't mention grip "issue" in any of your posts.
    Again you bring it down to "play down issues" and general difficulty issues in the game, not that I mention that there are issues with other events... right?

    *Since you are into bug reports it would be nice if you could do it for more events. Or if that's too much time then you could do it just for the console version of the game and I can post screens from those events on PC version.

    V8 do as you wish, I will report the bugs as I see them until someone from AC support tells me otherwise. The grip issue has not been confirmed to be true other than by you using a 3rd party mod. How do we know 100% on console isn't the equivalent level on the pc, the answer is we just don't. Giving pc based answers to console issues is playing things down.

    I just feel like I don't know if a person who suppose to know a lot about AC and can't check grip settings (since you had to ask how to do that on PC) or can't tell the difference between 3rd party app and built in app (heck it's not even an app but a function built in GUI) know how to correctly report bugs.
    100% grip on consoles might not be the same 100% grip as on PC, sure. Just like 100% boost in the Yellowbird can be different between the two, or the track surface grip level in the track files can be different (it's not the same as in the GUI grip level just so you know). And step by step we get into more ridiculous assumptions, but hey if a dev won't answer it's safe to assume they changed them too...
    But carry on and do as you wish.

    Assumptions yes indeed. Good day to you V8 you have fun, I'm absolutely certain if AC support had an issue with what I'm reporting they'd let me know.
  16. MBK72

    MBK72 Hardcore Simmer

    Umm V8 as you were so certain of your facts, I've been back to check. Now I'm going to assume you were just mistaken rather than deliberately trying to mislead console players about track grip levels on the PC version.

    Here are the screenshots taken just this moment from the PC version in the special event menus - not hotlap as perhaps your previous picture was, we are and have been talking about special events all along.

    These are definitive, the track and grip levels are exactly the same for the pc and console version. The pc version does not offer less grip and the console times are on average 2 seconds a lap faster to meet the medal times as already discussed.




    I am amused by this constant pc player commenting in the console forums when they have absolutely nothing of value to add.

    Well, then there are two options.
    1. It's bugged and for some it's always 100% and for some it's not.
    2. You did it in hotlap mode as I'm sure I didn't, even more so I just checked again.

    I'll try to download some recording program as Shadowplay doesn't want to record AC menu, just when I'm on track... for whatever reason. And will record the whole process of choosing special event, loading track/car and grip level.
  18. V8_KB

    V8_KB Alien

    OK done. You can see how I go through settings so you won't accuse me of changing them (lol) and you can see that I even tried changing grip to optimum in hot lap mode but it changes back when you choose the event. And you can't set the grip in the events.

    If you would pay attention to what you read and I post I was aware of that as I mentioned both of these game modes in my first posts.

    It does, and those console lap times are doable with 100% grip like I already said earlier (probably you didn't read again). In the case of those 3 events that we were talking earlier, M3 @ Magione, F40 @ Mugello and 599 @ Monza. Even another console player posted a video of him doing the M3 @ Magione event. It seems that because you are not able to post those lap times you see it as a bug.

    Without further due:

    I'd appreciate if you could record the same video from the PC version. If your grip will be 100% then it's clearly a bug and both videos will be great footage for devs that the issue is there.

    Not exactly what you've shown there. You replied to a thread called Are the Special Events even possible on console and then talked about general pc Hotlap times, your video doesn't show the track grip by the way.

    I'll add my own videos showing the Special Event Hotlap event joining and track grip at a clear 100% soon. The pc version offers the same 100% grip, so good of you to still attempt to deny this.

    Truly what are you doing you have no interest in the console version in any case.

    Right here we go. I'm not wasting any further time repeating for the other events they are all the same, grip on pc as oin console is fixed at 100%.

    I'll also be adding this video to my earlier posts to make sure people ignore your erroneous information. Thanks for all your help once again pc only players!!
