    Yeah, that's what I noticed.

    The physics in Codemaster's F1 lean on the simcade, yes, but the downshifts are insane in F1 :).

    Since buying ACC I have watched many gt3 onboards, but, as I said, muscle memory plays tricks on me. Especially in the heat of the moment.

    Yeah that is true. Muscle memory is king. It takes time.

    Yeah, everything is crazy fast in F1. If you look closely, you can see, that even then, the drivers wait a bit after braking, before they start shifting.

    I think this is a good example, since it is a very fast lap and Monza has large breaking zones with many downshifts. Compared to GT3, these cars have two more gears, but the braking zone is about 50m shorter, crazy.

    The graphics are cool, but the AI sucks.

    Yeah, that's true, but that's before the first downshift. After that, it's insane. In a GT3 you can't do that, that's what's messing me up.


    Here's my pathetic Monza. Just recorded. :p Still can't get under 1.51.

    One other thing I notice, which I think will feel strange to a lot, is that your CC will tend to drop if you are racing in close proximity to others. If I'm following a car - AI or real - I'm often easing off into corners to reduce the risk of a bump, and also on exiting if the car in front doesn't hit an ideal line it of the corner. Although I am fully in control of the car, my 'car control' rating will start to fade.
    I understand the logic behind this, and the reality that one 'good' lap will get my rating back up instantly, but this could confuse people less familiar with the rating's mechanics.

    I can see a few areas where you're losing time (compared to me anyway, I'm looking at motec data for a 1:49.641 with the lambo, so take with grain of salt). Here's a map for corner references:

    monza track.png

    Areas of note:
    Overall: Check your pedal calibrations, at times you're not at 100% braking

    Braking into T4: You're coasting into the corner, and when you get on the brake you're not at 100% brake force (look at the throttle/brake indicator). You could try braking later, closer to where close guardrail on the right ends (you can see an orange end on it), between the 150 and 100 boards.
    T7: You're over-slowing the car here, which is costing you a decent amount of time since it leads onto a long straight. Your braking point was ok, but try to carry more speed in since there's space to run wider on exit
    T8: You can brake a little later, closer to the marshall on the right
    T11: Braking early and not at 100% force; check if your pedals are calibrated properly. You can try and brake at some point between the 100 and 50M boards, and make sure to get the car properly turned in before accelerating so you don't need to adjust on exit by waiting at half throttle.

    Thanks, much appreciated. I noticed the brake indicator. It's me, not the pedal :D I'll try and follow your tips, thanks again!

    Well, FWIW I don't think there is anything 'wrong' with how it works right now.

    Is not pathetic, there is room for improvement always in this game.
    Big question, how do you record it? I'm an exPS4, in there you just press a button.

    Windows Game DVR. Windows button + G and then click on record or Windows + alt + r directly. If you have an nvidia card you can also use their overlay - alt+z by default.

    Folder location for Windows - C:\Users\%username%\Videos - here's a guide on how to change the location https://www.windowscentral.com/how-change-game-dvr-captures-folder-location-windows-10

    In the nvidia overlay you can change the location much easier. Also, it allows to directly upload it.

    It is going to make that if you let off the gas while following another car (so you don't bump him) it doesn't count like being too slow so CC goes down

    oh it is - your remark is precisely correct. I (will) call this feature "the reasonable lift", and it should at least release stupid pressure from drivers like you.

    Sorry, can't infer if you're agreeing with me or not... Am I applying 'stupid pressure'?:oops:

    I feel CC and CN are more like real-time feedback, so the fact they drop when in traffic seems appropriate to me. What would be cool would be able to see a heat-map of the your laps overlaid on the track map afterwards.

    No, he says that the system puts stupid pressure on you by saying too slow when you need to slow down

    Sorry I don’t follow, can you explain pls? Is that just in response to someone’s posted lap?
  20. PiretSS2000

    PiretSS2000 Racer

    No, about CC saying "TOO SLOW" when you are behind other car and if you don't slow down you hit the other car. Minolin has said that he will work on it so Cc understand that you can't go full race pace when in battle
