    New patch 4 today. :)
    • We've addressed many of the causes for various crashes and hangs.
    • Fixed the issue causing a deadzone on your wheel after setting your wheel and pedals up.
    • The grey flashback filter will now clear correctly
    • Reduced motion blur
    • Snag removed from turn 4 at Melbourne
    • Car model for Manor will now display correctly all the time
    • Cars can no longer retire in the pit lane
    • Assist settings will now save correctly
    • Vote to skip added to Online practice
    • No longer disqualified when resetting to track
    • Allow the user to customise their Championship Season weekend.
    • Fixed Fuel Mix levels appearing to produce incorrect vehicle performances.
    • Car can no longer become stuck in second gear when exiting the pit lane.
    • Fixed the Chase camera angle sometimes becoming permanently tilted after changing control bindings on supported controllers.
    • Leaderboards will now be updated without having to go back to the main menu.

    All patch details and additional game info can be found in the sticky thread here

    * Added note *

    (Try the alternate method below 1st) If you now have a huge wheel deadzone after this patch. I suggest that you go to your game settings, change the controller to your keyboard, then re-select your wheel. You will lose previous custom settings, so now you will have to remap any buttons/keys to get your custom settings back.

    This could fix your new deadzone issue if you did get one. It fixed it for me (+/- 45 degree deadzone post patch (G27)), where I had no problem pre-patch

    ** Another alternate fix method is mentioned in @Xero 's post below - click here

    It fixed my main problems, which were the 50% dead zone when using separate pedals (CSR Elite) and the "stuck in 2nd gear coming out of the pits" thing.

    So does this mean we can adjust it to be for example full practice, full quali but a 50% race in 'career' mode?

    Hello all,
    Not had chance to fire this up yet, so I'm being lazy asking here (sorry :)).
    Has this patch made any improvements to the '"blurry" graphics and / or improved the low FPS issues by any chance?

    Cheers

    Paul

    The patch notes say 'reduced motion blur' ...........

    However I don't use motion blur anyway, I disable it in the hardware settings XML file. I use SweetFX to improve visuals. I'm using this one

    The short answer is ........ I don't know how the game is effected by this patch tweak. :)

    That's a shame, it's beginning to look like only I was the lucky one (G27) :unsure:

    The way I fixed my deadzone issue was to simply reassign my axis for steering and pedals inside my custom profile. Changing to keyboard and back doesn't work.

    I've got rid of the dead zone issue and finally got my first races in today, but I have to restart every race session, reset the profile to custom as it defaults to keyboard and recalibrate the wheel

    Same here. This patch complete broke Fanatec CSW v2 wheel support. There's a huge dead zone now. The wheel doesn't seem to turn properly and the FFB is almost non-existent. Seems many people are reporting the same issue on the Steam and Codemaster forums.

    I must admit, I have just done a GP tonight, and when I went out for practice the 90 degree deadzone (45 each side of central) was back (G27).

    Had to map the the steering wheel axis as Xero did above to get it back. It was OK for the rest of P, Q. & R

    .why release a patch on a Friday that completely breaks the game, better leaving it till a Monday and then if something does go wrong you have people in the next day to fix it.

    Still no fix/feedback regarding FPS dropping (mine from 75 to 20s). Too frustrating, can't finish a 25% race.

    Still wayyyy too blurry for me, looks yuck. It should be crisp at 1440p but instead it's just a blur :S

    Yeah. Have you tried the mastereffects mod? Improves it quite a bit.

    There is, but it's cumbersome. Always, after starting the game, go to wheel settings and re-assign Steering axis. At least for me, it has to be done always w/ this latest patch and my custom G27. Got the tip from @Graham Laing.
