Seems like my steam version has released early
What country are from? might be the case. Mine still says pre-load.
Yeah, here in Australia it's been working since last night some time, my friends have been playing it all day... Early reviews from them are generally positive so far.
yeah Australia. Started up steam it downloaded a patch and it was good to go
Cool is that you can use your custom helmets from f1 2012, same template
Same helmet template like F1 2012?
That's perfect! So i can play the game instead spending the whole weekend to get my helmet ingame.
Well, it hasn't released early in North America, aka the land of F1 ignorance.
I am pre-loading it, though.
I don't think the helmet layout will be exactly the same.
It hasn't been the same from year to year in previous titles, no reason to expect it to be any different for this title. One of the ways CM's stop the cross title copying.
Plus in all the videos I've seen, there appears to be a definate difference in the helmet models used.
Alonso's helmet has the Schuberth top vent, while Button has the triple Arai top vents etc etc. This says to me the templates will be different somehow.....but I'm only guessing.
same templates like 2012?
What about the the helmet n.tga files for the two?
Well they are a little different.
The actual helmet model for the different makes must be the thing that is different.
Unless they have shown a better helmet model in the pre release vids.....but in fact they will just be a generic helmet yet again.
Just started it up, Wow graphically stunning.
First of all, it feels A LOT like F1 2010. It is also VERY power demanding, main menu is VERY laggy and now I have about 30% fps less than I had in F1 2012 on pretty much same level of detail. I did one online race in Melbourne and I was like "man, these braking points are very familiar". Braking is pretty easy, even without assists it is like you have ABS always. Not so sure about handling because I didn't touched wheel settings yet. Oh, they finally fixed gearbox settings for Singapore! Aaand tyre scales are back.
Looks even nicer with SweetFX
Anyone tell me how to get out of windows mode when playing this please, cheers
Try Alt and Enter together.
Worked in the past.
If not try Alt and Tab.
Damages on the car are incredibly poor yet... How can CM say that actual damage scale is "realistic" ???
Honnestly, it just seems to be a F1 2013 skin on F1 2012. That's a shame
I'll say it is a bit more than "skin". Engine visibly less powerful, tyres have a bit more grip, DRS is much more effective, absolutely different braking behavior (a lot like F1 2010 - trail brakers will be happy). Yet, physics are the same, of course because game engine is the same. It is like Codemasters are still trying to find balance between game and sim and continue to tune these things.
