Just a heads up lads. If anyone is struggling with microstutters in game which normally happen into and out of corners and give you the sense that the game is slowing down slightly and then speeding up, make sure you carry out a full reset of the console by holding down power button for 10 seconds when turning console off. Ian Bell posted to say it was probably happening because PCars is one of the first games to utilise the new core that MS made available that previously was reserved for the OS and that core can get a bit slow if the console is not shut down fully as all sorts of background processes start over time and it eventually becomes a bottleneck. He also suggested that you always fully shut down the console each time if you are going to be playing PCars.

I had the microstutters and a full reset sorted it.

I turned off instant on mode ages ago due to the entire console slowing at times, so suspect this is a standard memory leak MS issue (as opposed to pCars specific)

Problems after patch

I only had the stuttering/freezing issue once online at the start of Pcars ,now after installing patch 1.4 and doing the hard reset before anyone asks the freezing/ stuttering is making the game unplayable even in career mode

I have had the stuttering (sound only) occasionally since the patch, but only once before it so maybe there is something in there. Never had anything as bad as in that video.

Do you have all the visual effects turned on? I only ask because I turned off the lens flare as soon as I got the game and don't seem to have suffered stuttering anything like as much as most people.

Only ever had it once online when guys were jumping in and out of a practice session never in single player until after the patch as the above vid shows spiny with the effects on
A lot of people are reporting the stuttering/freezing worse since the 1.4 patch on the Pcars forum

I was getting bad stuttering last night in a gt3 race around Laguna Seca, only happened on the first corner by the pit exit, had lots of sound stutter too. Saying that I don't actually know if the patch has installed properly. Did a full reset on it before I played though.

Either way it was still awesome fun
