  2. already a topic for this.
  3. each new Patch #2 News update has been getting it's own thread :)
  4. forget patch, this is more of a game re-launch! ;)
  5. this is very great.
  6. Great improvement, but hey, what's the problem to release it today?!
  7. 1st thing i thought, too !
  8. they forgot to update teh 2nd DRS zone @ abu dhabi...dont they ever watch F1?

    I don't see the "quick set-up fix" in the list.
    Or the "Helmet fix" in career mode (after you choose your helmet the one on the table should change from all white to the helmet you just picked)
    Also don't see anything about addid your name to the drivers race suit in Career mode.

    Those all seemed like they should be quick-easy fixes.....

    ...... mostly harmless Staff

    I think they use the reason that now it's passed the test, it must now be packaged up and distributed for all platforms, and that would include Steam for example.

    I just hope that they release links for stand-alone PC downloads of the patch. Not leaving us to that heap of **** that is called Games For Windows Live ......
  11. probably patch was submitted before Abu Dhabi (or even India) race

    "Remember the name! Tommy Vercetti!"

    I don't think they can currently edit the drs zones. I read that somewhere.
  13. which one is that ?
  14. "To coincide with the release of the 2nd patch, we're also going to be doing a leaderboard wipe for both time attack and time trial modes."

    Old But Not Obsolete Premium

    Yep they have said DRS zones wont be corrected..as for the patch what bothers me the fact i see nout about the corrupt save game problem, except in co op mode.
  16. o Fixed an issue where AI difficulty was reset to “Amateur” level when resuming a Coop game. does this mean that the AI is fast after this patch in co-op:)

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    BTW I have downloaded my game onto XBOX360 Hard Drive and play of course with the disk in the CD drive. Does anyone know if the patch will update both or do patches live in memory somewhere??
    Anyway can't wait to play with the updates now!!! Pretty long list feels like a game launch.
    I do feel for the PC guys though as they like to fix their own stuff mainly (joke guys!)
  18. The 11/11 springs bug is where stiffer springs improve grip, stability, AND responsiveness... Right? What's the fix going to change there?
  19. David, the patch downloads as a file to your xbox and will work whether your playing off the disc or off the hard drive.
  20. Steam patches that are released on a Friday are legendary. There was 2 total war game patches that came out on a Friday and broke the game, stopping half the people playing it from getting past the loading screen. Cause it was a a weekend, they didnt get wind of it traight away, or do anything about it till monday and it took a few days to get a hot fix out.

    Fridays are bad because, if something goes wrong with the patch, you don't get any support till the Monday. Better to release early in the week.
