    Patch #3 might have been released as Steam downloaded 70.5MB for F1 2012.

    After patch #2, a check of the game_version.txt (\Steam\steamapps\common\f1 2012\game_version.txt) file showed: const char * version = "Master Universal.815819 25/09/2012 19:41 "; unsigned int versionNumber = 815819;

    The same file now reads: const char * version = "Master Universal.818459 28/09/2012 12:50 "; unsigned int versionNumber = 818459;

    The f1_2012.exe file has changed to v.1.2.0.0 from f1_2012.exe v.1.1.0.0

    Cheers.

    Two files are updated in the singapore track and these appear to have improved the night lighting on the cars a little. I can see the colours now, as opposed to nearly black red bulls etc.

    database.bin has been updated and reset to stock. RDE's post-patch 2 schemaF12012.2.xml does work to modify and save the .bin files.

    Today sees patch #3 available on Steam for PC versions of F1 2012.

    This update addresses a number of issues, including:

    • Fixed an issue with frame rates that was introduced in patch #2
    • Fixed an issue where using a flashback could result in an engine blowout effect. This would also result in the player doing an unnecessary pit stop if they were trying to serve a drive through penalty.
    • Fixed the achievement “The Equipment May Be The Same” to unlock in Career as per the description
    • Reduced the amount of starting fuel that the user is given for races Austin as it was previously too high
    • Fixed some issues in Co-op Qualifying when only one user progresses to the next session
    • Fixed a number of camera and graphical issues
    • Fixed several issues which would display the incorrect number of players in a lobby or a race

    Good patch , early tests look positive.

    Singapore improved without doubt lighting wise and in general frames are back up again.

    Good work.

    Cheers.
