    So, there was this 100MB patch out today. Some people at steam complain about stuttering audio (and noone's seen patchnotes yet, lol).

    Do you guys have it, too?

    Someone wrote, qualify practice program in career seems to be easier...

    Very weird, I hope it is a quick and easy fix. Amazing how all developers manage to fix one minor thing and mess up something major!

    SSD, but don't see what difference this would make as this was MP patch wasn't it.

    Notes:
    · The McLaren MP4/4 is now available for selection in Multiplayer modes for players with the Special Edition.

    · Players will no longer be incorrectly disqualified from Multiplayer sessions.

    It should not just throwing it out there, seems like a streaming/reading issue?

    1.3: Game ran great with decent performance. (Stuttering was solved with CPUcores and disabling hyperthreading

    1.4: Game crashes randomly, sound cuts in and out. Unplayable.

    TL;DR. Codies being Codies and screwing things up with a patch.

    1.4: I'm getting stuttering sound, it really is unplayable but time trial with MP4/6 is not affected. Otherwise, it is unplayable. Also stuttering video outside of MP4/6. There are a lot of people complaining about it on Steam.

    In the magical world of bugs and glitches this is pretty crazy.

    A multiplayer patch that glitches the sound, that then proceeds to glitch the glitch by coming and going for no reason. Well played codies, well played.

    Some guy found out that we should remove the line

    <Mapping bank="environments" pool="f1_persistent" gamestate="Persistent" />

    in file bank_memory_map.xml in folder ...\Steam\SteamApps\common\F1 2017\audio.

    I did not try it yet, but it seems this works until a solution is found by codemasters. Make a backup of the file in any case!
