Pit stop request and tire compound issue

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by Darwin71, Sep 21, 2011.

  1. Do we still have a say to call for a pit stop while racing or is it only up to the race engeneer to call us in. The reason i ask is because there is no button assignement for pit stop like we used to have in F1 2010. While racing i only had the option to change the fuel mix but none to change tire compounds while racing.

    One of your questions (pit stops) is answered here
  3. (merged)Is the pit stop still fully automated?

    Is the pit stop still automated and dumbed down? If so ...WHY?

    One of the major parts to an F1 race is the pit stop. Seconds can be won or lost in the pits and if you stuff it up then you lose time.

    If the pit stops are fully automatic ie. the game takes over from the minute you cross the pit entry line till you leave it....then Codemasters have seen the last of my cash (as a PC racer).

    Maybe they should stick to only doshing out console games.
  4. You have manual control over entry and exit, but the limiter has been taken out. Not sure why and I'm also not sure why it's such a big deal. Would you prefer to have a speeding penalty?
  5. No but I would like the "BE THE DRIVER"...."HAVE THE EXPERIENCE" ..."LIVE THE LIFE"...

    Not such a big deal? Are you serious? Pit stops win and lose races..get it right and you win valuable seconds...get it wrong and you lose some and possibly the race!

    To have this feature "fully automated" is blasphemy in a F1 "game" and shows laziness on the developers part.

    They spout "wanting to give us the full F1 experience"...yet when it comes to the pit stops....you may as well go and make a cup of tea while its all happening!!!

    And "limited control" behind the safety car? Yet another sign that this is nothing but a console "game".

    Make a seperate game for the PC or just leave it on console....but dont try to apease the PC crowd with dumbed down features.
  6. I guess CM are losing options with button since there are new control like KERS and DRS so the pit is fully automated.. :-/ at least we still have the decision when to go to pitlane. :)

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

    Surely its just about not enough available buttons to manage extra features of KERS and DRS on wheel/controller no?
    I was wondering where I would find a free button now I guess I know where one comes from (pit lane speed limiter).
  8. Hey, I would like to see the Pit Limiter back as well...BUT, at least you still have manual control of entry and exit, even if it's missing the limiter.

    Or is the limiter automatic in the real F1 now? I doubt it, but you never know.
  9. limiter is not automacit in real F1, its full manual
  10. Whilst I would like full control of pit stops, I'd rather have the current situation than worrying about getting blocked in the box with the bug.
