PS4 Qualify bug. Press the DAMN skip session.

    I not sure if many are aware about the skip session. Yesterday i went into a room with 20 min of qualification. Only to quit after waiting nearly 40 min (the race would not start). Because not a soul would skip session to begin the race. Ugh. Its bad enough to find a room thats full only to wait qualifying time and then some because of a bug that wont start the race.

    Please fix this.
    But in the meantime, people if you see that the race isnt starting. Press start and select skip session. Everyone needs to do this otherwise room will get empty quickly due to players leaving because all we want to do is race. If you dont want to race. Then go to a trackday room.

    It can be that the admin of the server put a massive wait time after the session finished. So maybe not a bug. :)

    We dont have that option, you cant change any settings when jumping in a public room. Its a bug. No matter what room you jump in. The only way it starts automatically, is when everyone in the room completes one lap. Otherwise its a wait fest

    on xbox all qualifying sessions are 15 mins, when that clock hits 0 and last cars on track finish there lap race starts. The only time qualifying lasts longer is if someone requests reset session and everyone in room votes. I've never had it that race doesn't start.
    The only bugs we get are the no gear selection in pits, you have to quit then rejoin. The bug where if some times the perfect entry into room as race is about to start, they just drive off the grid and into the distance while the rest of us are waiting for the last red light. Another bug if they join at end of qualifying and haven't set a lap time they start on pole.
    Back to your original question I think it must be a ps4 bug, report it to 505 and see what they say.
    To be honest the whole multiplayer experance just needs scrapping off and starting again, theres that much wrong with it, its just unbelievable they thought it was ok.

    We on ps4 get that bug too. where if the race starts the countdown and anyone jumps in during that time they are not locked in their grid. And can drive through the rest of the grid and down the track way before the counter starts the race. Yesterdays case no body was hitting or suggesting restart session. Qualify session never restarted. It just frustrating. Their was at least 15 driver on nords sprint endurance. Got guy clowning around Instead of completing one lap.

    That's an annoying bug, you could get the idiots doing it on purpose for a laugh. Join server and sit in pits. Put a ticket into 505. The vote system is annoying as well, it ought to work if the majority of lobby votes yes, not everyone has to.

    Several times I joined a qualifying session last night, Nurburgring Nordschleife and I had to leave because the race does not start and people don't vote to skip! I also noticed when browsing lobbies some servers had really long qualifying times, going into thousands of minutes. on a different note, when I did get into the race it was brilliant and the people who were racing were clean racers, unlike other titles where public lobbies are like destruction derby!

    When you see a room with the qualify time as you describe, it means the the qualification time has expired. And race has not begun. Its 50/50 if you jump in that it will start race or stay stuck in endless qualify bug.
    I honestly have to say of all the sims i have raced in. asseto has to have the most race etiquette and cleanest drivers of all. Sure i come across some cheaters who cut. Tracks and just have no respect for other driver. But in the most part clean racer are the norm, rather than the other way around. And the good racers usually do the right thing and kick these driver out
    My theory behind why this is, may be because asseto is a true sim. And technique, and patients is key. So casual racers who enjoy NFS, DRIVECLUB, and in some cases, GT Series. Find it to difficult for them to compete. And feel like to enjoy a race they need to come first all the time.
    The difference between us and them is,
    They see it as a game, where we see it as a sim.
    My wife says "are you playing tonight" i so "no i am racing tonight"
    I am really proud being a part of the PS4 AC sim racing community. And continuing to do the right thing. To get rid of the stigma console sim racing gets. Sure its not perfect, but still a huge leap in how sim racing has been on consoles.

    Agreed! I am really pleased that we can race a proper sim on consoles, as I cannot afford to spend thousands of pounds on a PC only to have to upgrade it in 18 months, With DiRT rally, Pcars & AC all on consoles the tide is changing. I just hope these Titles do well, as it seems that GT Sport is striking a balance between sim & arcade. I don't want arcade, spent 30 years playing arcade racers, long live simulation on consoles!

    I use to be a big fan of GT series. If striking a balance tween arcade and sim is what their going for, Then sadly Polyphony has lost me as a fan. I dont care how pretty the game looks. To me the most important aspect is the physics. And if thats the case then why all these years between titles. that only looks nice,But drives and feels like ****. With the budget and time they have GT series should be the pinacle of what sim racing should be.
    But as long as they cater to whiny babies that cry and moan about physics being to real and what not. Then they will always be mediocre at best. Sim racing has grown exponentially in the past few years. And real sim racers seriously out way those that are not. At this point The name is the success. But if they up keep with their stubborn ways of doing things and repetitive development. They wont be for long.
