Braking very weird?

Discussion in 'F1 2015 - The Game' started by Jacob Fræer, Jul 11, 2015.

  1. I like that it is harder to brake in this game, but i almost lock up every time, unless i brake with only 60 % at medium-low speeds. I think 60 % is kind of low.

    Can i adjust this in some kind of way?
    Also the lines in this game is not very accurate. In some corners (ex: Australia turn 3), even if i brake when it's just a bit yellow, i miss my brake spot.

    What do you guys think?

  2. Yeah I'm finding the braking tough too. Tried messing around with the linearity settings, everything from 0-100. 100 seems better, but you still can't use more than about 75% pedal movement before it locks up
  3. Which controller are you using?

    Personally I'm on Xbox 360 controller, but yes the car moves around a lot under braking. I actually think it's too much movement and happens due to incorrect sensitivity and saturation attributes for the controller. This is further demonstrated by the camera look function on the right analogue stick which has zero deadzone and smoothing. It seems that direct input is being used rather than Xinput, causing the issue.

    Either way, whichever controller you're using, you can make adjustments to your controller within a file "action_map_preset_win.xml" - which I've just described the methods in the "main" F1 2015 thread...


    ...and if you're locking up too easily then I'd reduce the saturation on the brake attribute for your device.
  4. Im using a Driving Force GT wheel, and all saturations are 0 %
  5. same thing with my g27, hope they fix this in a patch, or at least prove its supposed to be like this
  6. The game now requires some braking modulation, it works well imo.

    There was actually a problem with the e-brake on the new cars. Rather than using the rear brakes, the ERS recovery acts on the rear axle as a sort of engine brake. All teams struggled to get the settings right and make the car drivable.
    So I guess the brake is actually supposed to be that aggressive.
    What I guess is not wanted is that massive deadzone on both pedals.
    The main problem is that if you brake you overshoot the point you want to have, because you are already 50% on the brake before it reacts. So you basically have less throttle and brake control and that causes the main issue. So if CM gets rid of these deadzones with a patch, everything should be fine.

    And come on, the cars drive alright if you get used to them and better than in any title before if you ask me.

    Wow they've implemented braking modulation.Well done codemasters,I had a few laps yesterday and was really impressed with the braking and the lock ups.Lock up's were non existent in 2014,so this addition is appreciated.It's actually added some skill level into it.Along with the accelerator modulation,it's showing they've moved in the right direction. I'm looking forward to having more in depth drive today.And it's nice to see they've also got rid of those silly challenges,they were boriiing.This is all my own opinion of course and I fully understand that not everyone is the same as me or thinks the same as me.
  10. i agree way too easy to lock up, sadly some people think this is realistic so i just use abs for now.
  11. personally in my opinion braking is alot better this year,you just have to be smoother and i have not locked up once.i am using csr elites with the loadcell set to 8 and its bang on for my style

    I'm using a g27,and your right you have to be smoother.You can't just stamp on the brakes anymore.I'm also getting the feel of the brakes starting to lock up through my wheel.I'd advise anyone who own's 2014 to drive a few laps in that version and then switch to 2015.IMHO the difference is night and day.I'm getting some great subtle feedback through the wheel and that suits my driving style.If you like very strong FFB though you will probably be dissapointed.:thumbsup:
  13. ffb i have no issues with on pc i had to turn it down as was ripping my arms to bits lol.its back to basics with the braking always try to brake in a straight line and gradually put pressure on brake and should be more comfortable for people.i used to be heavy under braking till i was introduced to iracing n now i am alot quicker due to the way i brake so people smoother is the way on 2015

  14. I like the fact that you can lock up now, I've played quite a lot of AC in cars without ABS. So know about being smooth on the brake etc. But the problem is there is no room for error. Even 1% too much pressure and its a full lock up straight away. And to unlock you have to release the brake completely rather than just a little. Which then means you've lost all ability to make the braking point smoothly without loosing time.

    In real life you'll see them locking up sometimes, but they are still able to control it and not loose time

    Rfactor2 is also an excellent training ground for braking also,very unforgiving the same as I racing.It wiil probably be a steep learning curve for many people. But if I can learn to do it anyone can.Rf2 is a brutal training ground,but makes you drive better.
  16. I think the handling is much improved in this game.
    Ik hope they keep it this way. Also the tyres are much better. You have to work them to keep them up to temps

  17. I have a thrustmaster 458 italia on te one.

    I have the same problem when i race in single race or championship.

    When i race online(hardcore mode) the brakes are mutch better !!!
