    Please concentrate your bug reports for v1.21 on this thread.

    If you may please elect to adapt the following report form below:

    Track & Layout Used:
    Car Used:
    Applicable Settings:
    Report:
    Steps to reproduce:

    Ex:

    Track & Layout Used: Montreal 88
    Car Used: Formula V12
    Applicable Settings: n/a
    Report: After losing front wing the car gets airborn above around 100mph.
    Steps to reproduce: Crash and lose front wing, drive fast ;)

    For any difficulties related to installing, running or setting up the game which are not necessarily bugs in the software, please use the v1.21 release thread.

    Please allow time for us to test, verify and rectify the issues. We might not reply to you right away but rest assured if you posted here, we will have read it.

    Avoid repeating reports by trying some recommended solutions below to known problems:

    Measures to try regarding the various CTDs / crashdumps:

    1-Run GSCSync again or install from the RAR update packages, make sure you have the lastest GSC.exe;

    2- If you had mods installed, try deleting your Gamedata\Shared folder and running GSC Sync again to restore the v1.20 shaders (refer to the note regarding issues with 3rd party mods & tracks in the opening post GSCE V1.20 Released).

    Regarding stuttering:

    -Try deleting your USERDATA\LOG file, and creating a fresh player profile (PLR);

    Regarding shadow flickering issue:

    - Try creating a shortcut to GSC.exe and add -fullproc to the command line, performance will be worse but it might prevent the issue from happening.

    All the gear, no idea...

    Track & Layout Used:Interlagos + Montreal tried so far
    Car Used:Formula Vee
    Applicable Settings:Everything Maxed out
    Report:Getting terrible performance on a 10 car AI race, as soon as a couple of cars are visible on screen I'm getting some horrible choppiness/stuttering.
    Im running an i7/gtx780/12gig ddr3 on a single screen @1080p. Ive tried with a fresh PLR and with my old PLR file, both act the same. It was doing this in v1.20 also.
    edit: just tried running with the opponent detail on low settings and it allows aprox. 5 cars on screen in front before the choppiness starts.
    Just tried with f3 and stock cars with all settings back to max and no problems at all, seems to only be the Vee's that are giving me issues.

    also unable to select grid start position on single race, always places me in 1st position regardless of selection made.

  3. Track & Layout Used:Austria 2014-GP
    Car Used:Formula Extreme
    Applicable Settings: Everything on high bar shadows
    Report:Horrific stuttering during a test day with 7 AI cars, stuttering mainly whilst watching other cars go round track with replay camera. Toned graphic levels down and still same issue, PC more than capable of handling game and has only occured since v1.20/21 updates. Happens on other tracks with others cars e.g. Interlargos with Formula V12. Haven't tried a race, god knows what will happen!

    Are you guys following the checklist from the opening post (delete LOG folder / creating a new PLR file)?

  7. to all with stuttering, does the intro video stutter aswell, or only on track? on my mashine, it was a hardware issue. the GPU did not work properly. the last day before the GPU died completly it worked again as it should without any stutter, buttersmooth gameplay. and than boooom. total system failure...
     
  8. I can report that with this newest update, I have intermmitent stuttering back although its lowish, it is ruining any fun, happening espcially under breaking. Tested in 2014 V8, low/medium/high settings, x anisotropic, x1 AA, few differerent Reiza tracks.

    Reiza, if it does continue, and a longer fix neccerssary, offer a v1.15 downdate choice ? (Via RAR)
     

  9. Known issues:
    • Championship races are being awarded double points.

  13. Yes seeing the same on a Asus DirectCUII GTX 670...accompanied with major stuttering.
     
  14. Track & Layout Used: Spielberg Historic, Buenos Aires, Interlagos 1976, Canada
    Car Used: Formula Vee
    Applicable Settings: All graphical settings at maximum settings except for Shadows (High) and Shadow Blur (Off). 33 cars visable. New plr file created after 1.21 patch
    PC Specs: i5 2500k @ 3.9 GHz, EVGA GTX680 SC, 8GB RAM, Win 8.1 Pro x64, latest Nvidia drivers
    Report: Terrible frame rate at the above tracks whilst sitting in pits (sub 30fps); frame rate climbs once I've left pit area; terrible stuttering when cars racing in packs of 5 or more. No frame rate issues with different cars on same tracks; something amiss with Formula Vee
    Steps to reproduce: Select any of the tracks I listed with the Formula Vee with a full 33 car grid and use the in-game frame rate counter (Ctrl+F) to watch frame rates

    I had the exact same problem and after a full uninstall of GSCE and a reinstall (fresh v1.15 then g-synced to 1.21) all the stuttering was gone.

    Since the update my wheel is shaking when car loaded into garage, obviously as realfeel loads. Gets real wonky and probably can dial it out but never had this problem before on 4 separate installs. Also not having this problem in other sims so it's probably not the wheel. Have a DFGT. Did a complete fresh install, with fully downloaded rar file, same thing. Thx
     
  17. Hi. About this:
    • Fixed bug with AI performance discrepancy from quali to race (RaceQualRatio=XX parameter now works in AIW files, lower than 1.0 value will result in slower qual times relative to race, higher values will do the opposite. By default AI should be about 2% faster in quali; remains an issue with AI being too quick in practice sessions

    To me the AI now is much faster on the race, than at the Qualy. How can I adjust this?

    Im happy to report that on my system ( i5 OC'd to 4000Mhz, GTX590, 16GB RAM, triple 24" ) F-Vee performance issues at Buenos Aires went from 14 FPS sitting in pit at Practice 1 race weekend to 43-50 goes to my locked refresh rate of 60 almost as soon as point down pit lane. I followed the instruction of deleting LOG folder new profile etc. thanks for the tweaking.

    however the bug i reported about track "racing line" darker area being brought over from a add in track to a GSCE track is still a happening thing. All i am doing is going from one tract to the other is a testing session, so all settings are staying the same, just changing tracks. to get rid of the unwanted darker areas I have to exit game.
    Easy to replicate: load one of the latest updated tracks available here, drive a lap. Exit. Go to Buenos Aires (or probably any GSCE original track) and go out on track and see to difference as per pics

    Buenos Aires standard look:

    Buenos Aires after driving on a converted track look:
