Multiplayer - online racing?

Discussion in 'F1 2010 - The Game' started by Lazlo Acera, Sep 23, 2010.

  1. how is the multiplayer??? life's too short for single player campaign, online is all that matters.. so let's hear it :tongue:
  2. Online seems broken. I wasn't able to connect to a lobby not once in over 8 tries. I'm on a very fast and stable Time Warner connection and it's working because I then immediately went to GRID and was able to hop in an online race without any problems. Fix it Codies.

    It's not broken at all. You most likely need to allow your firewall to connect isamu.
  4. they forgot to program the message that the lobbie is closed due to the guys being in a race. So most of the time when you want to join and it says 'connection failed', it just means that they are in a race and you have to try later to join. Kinda dumb from codemasters.
  5. It's the future of console ports.....crappy PC performance.
  6. That is very interesting and would explain the issue I was having. Can I ask where you got this info from?
  7. I also had this issue last night, but the race already in progress would seem to make sense as the reason. Although if i recall in DiRT 2 they would let you at least join the lobby and wait right?
  8. I found out because I was trying to join a game and it said connection failed. After about 3 minutes I could join and I asked if they just got done with a race, and they did. So I did the math.

    2388874 x 2239995 + 232 / 3999 = ?

    It would make sense and seeing its a console port only stamps that theory.
  10. ...and in Dirt2 one was able to separate cockpit users from others by setting it to mandatory. Here one is forced to deal with non sim players which have no blind turns, way lesser rain spray...

    I'm asking myself why so many developers act like this, setting cockpit VIEW as mandatory so no advantaged CAM users can join doesn't hurt anyone, but this way it does to all simulation lovers.
  11. wow... just wow... i read this on another thread and it does not sound good. anyone else had similar experience or better, i hope.. ?
  12. Yah, that was a wonderful feature in Toca Race Driver 3, so instead of loosing players during the session we were gaining people so we were often racing with full servers. That was much better than ending with 2 drivers left and no one can join for next race.
    I think Codemasters should fix this issue.
  13. Thought the online is great, no major problems on the PS3 in the UK, except for the muppet drivers who want to smash into you. Which then it comes up you have caused a collision, and this means no XP points for the race.

    But the actual gameplay has been good overall, but they need to fix bugs and glitches, which i thought there was a patch come coming anyway.
  14. Yes, not seen sliding cars at all
    I like it online so far

    If the host leaves the race the connection is picked up by another player
    I dont know if the game picks the fastest connection but I can imagine if a player with a slow connection needs to host 8 a 9 cars things are going wrong?

    Very sad we cant have replay's of online race's
    I had some great moments with guy's I would love to see again
  15. :D

    I have been playing online on the PS3 and have had some great races, I find it best to find a custom setup where the assists are off as this seems to minimize the risk of muppets.

    Also seems best to let the pack pull away at the start and then thread your way through the inevitable first corner carnage. I have raced against a few guys who have usernames with the prefix GTP_ and they are very fair, we were racing 20% with tyre and fuel sim on and 4 of us finished within 8 seconds of each other!
  16. I was looking forward to playing online but all I get is a bunch of guys who ram me all the time then sun I get away they sit and wait there for a lap for me to come back then do It all again -_-
  17. Just switch to another room, dont let those fckrs ruin your fun

    oh and its weekend now so expect a lot of kiddies online!
    (oh wait you cant get online with a illegal copy haha)
