car just hit by invisible hulk....

I don't know what it is about the game, but the steering can be twitchy, most of the time.

Changing settings, helps.. but not by much.

It's a steering wheel calibration problem and I've had it far far worse than that, believe me.

Watch it here from replay and also in car viewpoints. The wheel just started flipping left to right repeatedly on its own. After trying virtually everything, eventually I had to delete my saved data on the PS4 to correct it.

I've tried everything except, wiping my save data.
Cheers.

After taking my wheel set up to a friends house and it working fine, I upgraded the firmware for my T300RS on my laptop, uninstalled Project Cars and reinstalled it. Then I even tried starting my PS4 in safe mode and rebuilding the data base, all to no avail. It was only when I realised that uninstalling the game hadn't uninstalled the save data that I finally managed to cure it. It has done it once or twice since, but only fleetingly, so it's definitely a software glitch of some sort.

OMG!! that's comedy gold right there! I'm saving the vid for future laugh!! LOL

badz149967d ago

I was referring to the vid of this article with my comment below but your vid is really something else! even before the crash you can clearly see that the driver was having epilepsy while holding the steering wheel.

@badz

I love this game, but it was really infuriating at the time and I was ready to set the T300 on fire, then bury it in the back garden!

After watching the replays though I had to laugh about it. :)

Ladies and gentlemen, Harry Potter is dead.

OhMyGandhi967d ago

I was going to blame it on Frodo.

badz149968d ago

not just got hit by it. by the look of it, The Invisible Hulk hump it after the crash! LOL

TheBrownBandito968d ago

What, the OP or my vid?

On my vid you can clearly see the wheel is still going bonkers even after the car has come to a standstill.

Mental....

It's a sad DEVELOPMENT indeed.

Completely bug free. It's just this generation that faces these issues.

AHall88967d ago

I'll give you the first one, but the second one was using a gameshark.

ChronoJoe967d ago

Fair enough, in honesty I just typed glitches into youtube. They're not hard to find for older games either, just less publisized due to social modern social networking and video / screenshot sharing functionality.

Psychotica968d ago

It's like it hit a car with a cloaking device...

ChronoJoe968d ago (Edited 968d ago )

Sort of, but whatever hit it hit it much harder than a mere car. It took maximum damage to all areas of the car within a single instant. Nothing, realistically should be able to do that, aside getting hitting into a wall and at the same time being slammed from behind perhaps.

Seems like it may not have even collided with anything (invisible or otherwise). It looks like the game just randomly registers 'maximum damage' and the video shows those effects.

It's a calibration/control glitch. It's akin to going full lock, instantly, at 100 Mph. A straight flip. Mine went flipping down the road because my wheel was spinning left to right all on its own! Not sure if it was that obvious for the OP though.

Mr Marvel967d ago (Edited 967d ago )

Impossible!

No vehicle that small has a cloaking device.

Max-Zorin968d ago (Edited 968d ago )

That is embarrassing. It's like Magneto is trolling from long distance.

Gwiz968d ago

WOW,now that's definitely the weirdest crash i have ever seen lol.
