Generic Rather disappointed with latest update release notes

    Hello Kuno

    While i love your work, and progress ... i can only say and feel that the latest update is just a money grab via DLC

    Yes we all want new cars & tracks (and yes i am a day 1 Season pass holder ), i have to say i will part with no more cash until some serious effort is put into fixing the "missing" parts

    1) User customizable button mapping - this isn't 1980
    2) Exposing the UDP , so we can use tablet apps
    3) Private lobbies

    Overall i am happy with the games physics , i believe you really do have a winner here .. however just pushing updates so you can sell DLC is a kick in the teeth

    BTW : i am a developer myself of 30years , any developer worth their salt can add user mapping and enable keyboard support in a matter of a hr

    So I take it Kunos shouldn't update the game for a few years until they made the perfect game because anything else is a cash grab. I understand the argument against offering DLC after a bad launch but not releasing patches because they don't fix everything immediately? Well I guess it'd spare Kunos the cost of approval every time.

    My point is there is nothing in this release (outside of some small fixes), other than DLC releases

    There is nothing requested by the community being implemented or addressed in this release.

    as i stated, even offering customizable controls (even adding calibration of controls) .. is not a huge development task

    while i do love this game and its physics , just offering DLC without even trying to fix some the call outs is a low swing for cash only
    (i also stated i am a Developer of 30 years , so i know how the industry works )

    My guess is console dev time is being used up on the multiplayer side of things.

    Oh thats a good guess, and yes huge development requirement .. but adding say button mapping/calibration , UDP broadcast is a very small effort

    from my view, not trying to do this and "holding" all the requested items back instead of just releasing patches for DLC only is what choked
     
  8. If it's such a small effort then code it up over a lunch break and send it to them, maybe they will give you a free DLC pack or something for your hours worth of work.

    Clearly you have zero knowledge on development, but here it is for them in pseudo code

    enum accel = 0;
    enum brake = 1;
    char[] buttons[] = new chat()[COUNT];

    //default setup
    init()
    {
    button[accel] = 'x';
    button[brake] = 'y';
    }

    changebutton(int index, char key)
    {
    button[index] = key
    }

    getbutton(int index)
    {
    return[index];
    }

    .. yes this needs a UI , and "user" pref storage, manage duplicated key selection etc .. but thats a very basic key mapping in under 5mins

    Yes they will need to change the code at "access" the control in a hardcode way ... however this is very very simple

    It would be nice to hear what has been fixed or made better. You know the stuff that has made the game play better, what has been improved, what has been updated. But hey lets beehatch some more.

    P.S. THIS IS A VALID QUESTION FROM US ELITE PC OWNERS. Is UDP broadcasting allowed within the console environment, is it under the same strict rules/guidelines as the game itself?

  11. At the moment keyboard support can't be added to the Xbox one version until Microsoft make changes at their end. I got proved right I said people will move to complaining about other stuff once more content gets added it seems to be a continuous circle, complain about dlc.... Dlc gets added move on to complain about other things

    UDP was implemented with some ease (according to the devs) on pCars , so there is a precedence here ... while this is a small to medium size task ,its certainly not impossible

    I have a job ;) but thanks for the reference :p ..

    Seriously i am not bashing them , i am suggesting they pick up some of the smaller asks in each release ... thats all it will take
    (and yes i hear they are a small team , but again some of the asks can be done by a single engineer in a small amount of time)

    Looks like a pretty good comeback to me :cool:

    And for all guys complaining about this thread.. Chris is raising a valid point. It's the second most requested item for months now! And although I'm not a coder, I know guys who do this stuff and I agree with Chris, it's not THAT difficult to pull off.. (I don't know how correct it is, but) See above!

    Personally I have no use for custom button mapping at the moment. But I'm just thinking about all of you guys who have asked for it.. I would think you'd have gotten it by now.

    I do however disagree with the cash grab bit.. Personally, I'm more than happy to be getting more cars. I'd like to see more tracks (2 more are stated to be releasing soon, and that's fantastic!)...

    But I've only been playing this game for the past 3 or 4 months.. I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to be interested in hot lapping myself, because the online lobby system is garbage. Just saying. So maybe cut the guy some slack, especially if he knows what he's talking about and custom button mapping isn't that hard.

    Sorry but i don't miss any of that and it's up to us if we want to buy the dlc's or not, i don't even have season pass yet, but i have bought all dlc's on PS4, i'm happy for the update, so i can buy the red pack and porsche pack 2 tomorrow and use it in the new special events races which i expect is updated in this update.

    I'd like to add.. Are there at least "notes" this time around? Because last update was still showing the previous build's specs on the news screen for the longest time!

    It doesn't take too much thinking to get the impression that this game is not being programmed by a dream team. I hate to say that, because the game and the work that these guys are doing in some areas is just freaking fantastic!!! But they clearly need either more man power, or at least one more guy that knows how to smooth a game out.

    I cant help to believe that it isnt as easy as
    "enum accel = 0;
    enum brake = 1;
    char[] buttons[] = new chat()[COUNT];

    //default setup
    init()
    {
    button[accel] = 'x';
    button[brake] = 'y';
    }

    changebutton(int index, char key)
    {
    button[index] = key
    }

    getbutton(int index)
    {
    return[index];
    }"
    because then it would already been done.
