WHEEL users seem to have the biggest issues. We had a try at restarting after the race but all it did to me was dump me back to main menu. We could do 2 seperate sessions? So then if there issues we dont start. OR just do the race only?

There's the same issue every week with the comms shouldn't someone with a mega connection host to c if it works?

Net usage doesnt matter after 3 or 4 mb. Mine is on 10mb so plenty. Plenty with mega 60mb+ mb connections still have issues in games.......

Good to get back racing last night. Real shame there are still issues with online. It's a bloody fantastic game but maddening that all can't enjoy it to it's fullest.

Think I'm going to go down the route of uninstalling and deleting all game and cloud saves and start again

If it sorts out the non saving of tunes then I'll do it, it may even sort the sound glitching. I've got nothing to lose

Hoping this isn't teaching grandma to suck eggs (that would be a more accurate simile for smokin), but have you saved the tune to all tracks? If you save in free practice, it will only save to the track you're on, whereas if you go to "My Garage" after that, go to edit tune then save you can select which track(s) you save it to, including all tracks.

To be honest, it struck me that the biggest issue last night was Comms. I didn't hear Stoney all night, and occasionally had break-up from other people too. It seems that even after 20 months or so, the party system still leaves a lot to be desired.

As for the racing, despite a pretty bad first lap (clipping a stationary Jamesy off the line, outbraking myself to let JohnG by, watching John smash into the back of a stationary Jamesy at 140mph because he was looking in his mirror), it actually ended up being a very good race. Had a couple of laps closing in on smokin, then a couple of laps pressure until he made an error to let me past. After that, I had to hold him off for about 4 laps until he made another error to let me get a second or so gap. Following that I was able to stop driving defensively, but Moon was too quick and too far away to think about second place.

One more thing - I want to petition the physics gods to stop the Bentley making such a big hole in the air for smokin

yeah I know it saves just for that tack in free practice but it doesn't always save it in free practice. So I spend all that time tuning (if you can call it that lol) thinking its saved it and when I go to load the tune its the default set up

Yup. Suspect I'll have the most reliable connection. It's tested 24x7x365

My car went from the race we had last week, to only just scraping into 1:12's in practice and qually. During race, it was undrivable again. Like someone was flicking traction off and on as a joke. Think I span / crashed so much, before lap 4 you guys were approaching to lap.

I'm used to being back of the pack on pcars, but lapped on the first 3rd of the race is frustrating, especially given I'm not slow!

A reinstall might be needed for me too if it's still sorting issues for some people.

I love this game, but can't for the life of me understand why I'm slow.

I had a similar thing recently with the BMW on Imola. Whatever I did in free practice, it just would not save the tune (I ended up writing it down so I could install the tune when I went into Career). I tried the tune in Career practice and qualifying too, with no joy. It still didn't hold the tune when I tried saving to Imola through "My Garage" either. In desperation, I saved it to all tracks other than Hockenheim and Catalunya which already had tunes saved to them.... and it worked.

I can only guess that either Imola is referencing the save on another track, or that there are certain car and tune combinations where the tune just doesn't get picked up when you race it instead picking up the tune from another track. It may be that you found one of those car/track combinations on your install.

EDIT: More weirdness. Despite saving to all tracks, all circuits and even selecting tracks individually, the Audi R8 tune is not saving to any tracks further into the alphabet than Dubai when I save through my garage. However, it is saving to Zolder when I save there from free practice. Really have no idea what's going on, but it may be worth looking in my garage to see which (if any!) tracks the tune has saved to.
