    Hi all,

    I posted this issue on the codies technical assistance forum to see if anyone else has encountered this problem, but so far, no one has.

    Basically whats happening is that the Fuel and Tyre simulation options dont exist. So in races, i have no tyre wear, and a very light car with no fuel consumption.
    I cannot change the fuel mixture settings in the garage, or on track.

    And when I want to see the % of tyre life left on a set of tyres when in the garage, it only lets me select the compound of tyre, it doesn't let me select a specific set.

    When I go into the difficulty settings, there's no option to turn the tyre and fuel sim on or off. In fact the tyre and fuel sim isn't even listed.

    I'm playing on PC and have got all assists and aids turned off. If anyone has had this problem, it would be nice to know that i'm not the only person in the entire world with this issue. I don't necessarily need a solution (although that would be nice), as this seems like the type of problem that only a patch from CM can fix. But I just need recognition that someone else out that has had this problem. :)

  3. There is an update already; solved some problems. No tyre or fuel sim option in menu same as F1 2012.

    Yeah, i've got the update, not entirely sure what it fixed, but it didn't fix this.
     
  5. I didn't see an update.

    It should automatically update through steam, if you're not playing in "offline mode".

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was an update, because something downloaded. :O_o:
     

  7. This is not a problem. These options didn't exist in F1 2012 either because fuel/tyre sim cannot be turned off. The reason you can't see tyre life is because you are in a race where pitting is not mandatory.

    I realise that they were not an option to turn off or on in 2012, but I've done 100% race distances, and experienced no tire wear, and no fuel consumption. I completed an entire silverstone GP on a single set of the options. And they weren't worn.

    Yes, this absolutely is a bug.

    There has been no announcement over at Codemasters, are you sure about this?
     
  12. My exe file was updated brfore I could play the game the second time: date and time stamp is more than 4 hrs from the rest. Guess those who activated their games later may already have the updated file.

    Fair enough ..... wouldn't surprise me if CM sneaked a little fix out, mainly to avoid any forum kerfuffle :)

  14. Fix with this :

    Parc fermé = OFF

    I figured out a workaround:

    Start a new profile, when the game asks you if you want to skip to day two on the YDT (if you have f1 2012), go to day one. You should now have the missing options. Both in career and regular grand prix mod.

    Turning Parc ferme off fixed it for me! :)

    Mine was fixed sparrow560's method. Works great! Just had the best race at Korea. Most thrilling 55 laps of any racing game I've ever played
     
  19. I have got this problem aswell
     
  20. Not sure if this is the same as i'm on the Xbox but I couldn't find anywhere to turn on tyre scaling \ fuel sim so it sounds similar. Does this method require you to redo the YDT?
