Another bug in F1 2010 emerged which proves that the game tricks with the lap results of AI drivers. Codemasters announced, that a patch is in the making that could dissolve this serious problem.
Didn't know about this. But I found it quite strange that in a very-damp track that still needed an intermediate-tyre for me, the AI was already posting dry-track lap times(ones that you'd only get using slick-tyres), and when I went out on-track all of them were still wearing intermediate-tyres. It was a big WTF for me. This explains everything. Quite disappointing really. It's these kind of things that take away the magic from the overall experience. And without the safety car, I change my score from 8.5/10 to 7/10.
It's these kind of things that make GT5.... THE...
Best...around...nothin's gonna go and bring it down...
lol I already mentioned this in a comment before. it's a very bad bug when Alonso is running around in a wet race with slicks on and still manage first. another bug I bumped into last night is that the ai can go in pit behind me but never really stop for any changes (they'll just continue thru from entrance to pit lane to exit). another bug is that they can also go in pit without the limiter and suffer no penalties.
alonso cheating? that's a shocker. :)
Yup. I consider myself reasonably good at racing games. Was astounded when at practice at hockenheim soaking wet the AI managed to post 1.20s. I absolutely pushed my lotus to the edge on both wets and inters and only broke a 1.21. Qualifying came around and it was bone dry. My very first lap on the option tyres was a 1.18 no sweat. However when i checked the AI times, they were struggling to break under 1.20. That the AI times were unbeatable in the wet but no faster in the bone dry on slicks is a glaring bug.
lol i traded this turd in at roughly 1635 today.
The childlike narrator's main problem is that he can't understand how a driver in second place can be faster than the driver in front. Has he never watched F1? This is a badly formulated theory, if it was even thought out at all! Children should not be allowed to pontificate as if they were presenting facts.
It's not about who was in front or back. The problem was that the AI was posting an impossible time on the very first lap. The AI can't possibly be over 6 seconds faster on the opening lap than the player in that video. Even Codemasters themselves admitted that the AI cars were there for visual purposes only, and that the AI lap times were more or less pre-determined by the game itself and not a proper timer like the player has. Go and have a look at their forums. No need to be a douchebag about it.
way to make yourself look stupid moviescouse...lol dam, id go spit in a mirror if i was you
Or go pontificate in a mirror..
Without reading the article this reminds me of all those times as a kid I played games on the original Nintendo that made you scream, cry, and rage out of your mind about the AI being stupidly hard. Hearing that the AI cheats in a game does not shock me at all.
True, doesn't surprise me, but ensures that I won't be buying this.
I don't see what people sees in codemasters, never liked any of their games.F1 should've been given to a sim dev not an arcade dev.
that is one of the worst Deutsch to English translations ive ever tried to read.
Poor considering its from Codemasters, where was QA/QC. Still a great game, but ive given up on career until the worse issues are sorted. AI brake way to much into corners
The game is absolutely bugged to jiggery. What's sad is we'll probably only get one patch and they'll focus on fixing the rest for F1 2011. 'Let the customers beta test your games' seems to be the way most retail releases are going this gen.
The games flawed beyond belife, I had Driver ade break on and my car actually STOPPED going round a corner, it breaks way too early as well, buggy as hell, get better BETA testers Codemasters.
Uhm, just throwing this out there. But couldn't he have gotten some extra time because he cut one of the corners? Somewhere in the middle of the track he got a warning "Cutting Corners". Doesn't this add like a time penalty? Never played this game, so please don't flame me :)
I was thinking exactly the same thing , he got a warning.
Nothing like that in this game. This is not a MotoGP game. Watch the timer on his top right corner closely. There is no "extra" time added for the warning. This is a big problem with the game. It's not even really a bug. It's the game mechanics itself programmed to do this. I know because I've been having the same problem with AI setting their fastest times on the very first lap, which is impossible in a real race.
I knew the AI always cheated in games!
i was thinking that being in the lead doesn't mean you have the fastest lap time, then i remembered, or at least the guy in the video mentioned, it was the first lap so in that case, yeah it pretty much does.
Like 99999% of the ai in others games? Not surprising.
