    So is the consensus still that the world shaking is broken?

    Read the entire thread here...
    I honestly don't think they Accept it as an Issue. In fact I get they Impression they are Annoyed that I keep pressing it as an Issue.

    I've also made a full bug report on the Private WMD2 forum, since I'm a Full Member of the Beta testing team there.
    I haven't contributed much, since Sony wouldn't let console owners Beta test. But I am on the GOLD team.
    If you are a WMD2 member, you can read it here.

    I would like to thank my friends that drop by to race with Hotty and I last night at Texas Motor Speedway under the lights.. rps20171023_131153.jpg Hotty sure liked the high side..
    While I preferred working the low .. rps20171023_131107.jpg Turn one at 214 plus will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat..
    If you don't believe me just ask Daytona Dave...
    Great Times.. I think I might be getting addicted to Indy Car.

    World Movement bug
    The Debate goes on and on.... My PS4 posts were merged in with the PC posts.
    Still no word on if it has been classified as a BUG.
    "Set it to 100" is all we are told to do... at 100 it looks just like real dash cam video's we are told.


    So many members cite in car Dash cam video's as How they think it really should look.
    But anyone who has driven a race car, knows that the Dash Cam video's are not how it looks to be the driver.

    The World outside of the car should Not Move up and down. Especially true with the use of VR.
    the Horizon up and down should be fixed so it does not move.

    Here is a great article on it.

    no big deal, but does anyone know how you get the trophy for Fuji. under 2 min in a storm. I have done it in a thunderstorm and a raging blizzard.. nothing. As I said, no biggie as I'm not a trophy hunter, just curious

    You're quite welcome Jazz. :) It was very fun. I'm not usually into Indy cars, but that interesting. I think I saw 221 one time hitting turn 1. I might've made it through if I wasn't paying so much attention to my speedo. :D

    It definitely helps to keep your eyes on the road at that kind of speed.. I'm working on a low down force setup for Indianapolis next . Gotten up to 231 going into Turn 1&3 without hitting the wall and without a draft... Looking forward to a big event in the future..

    Indy cars? I'll have to give them a try..
    Does the Push to Pass feature Work? How much of a Boost is it?
  11. Jazzpurr09

    Jazzpurr09 Licensed Racer

    Wyld,. I've only tried it out one time that was at a 20 lap race at Indianapolis it appears to give you a very noticable 70 horsepower boost.. it's a One-Shot one time thing , the good news is it lasts for about three to four, 40 second laps once it's on it's on for the extent of the boost reserve.. It did recharge after a pit stop but I only did that during a practice session. You can also plan on an increase in fuel consumption.
    It may perform different at other tracks.
    Its mapped as KERS button. A good draft partner works about as well , big bump in speed in the draft , but be careful in the corners dirty air causes push.
    Having fun learning.

    Still no news on when the PS4 will see the Patch...
    GT Sport has had 5 updates already, and Pcars2, is stating that Sony/Microsoft is holding up the patch release.
    I smell something foul in that.
    It's just a waiting game... But Pcars2 is still on the shelf..
    I won't play it till I know they have patched the World Motion issue.
    On lap down the esses in Bathhurst is enough to make me start to feel ill.

    I'm Angry and Mad...
    I just tried pCars2 again, and it's just as much a pile of crap as it was when it first came out..
    The In car view, has so much Outside World motion, I can't stand to drive more than a lap
    around most of my Favorite Tracks.
    Any Track that has an Elevation Change is Affected by it.
    Especially when going from Higher Elevation to lower Elevation..

    The Graphics and Framerate Improvements have Made the Problem even worse than it was.
    It's much more noticeable !

    And The TEAM does not even Acknowledge it to be a Problem.
    They all post Links to Youtube Videos of In car Video
    showing how the Video Captured in the real Cars, Looks the Same as it does in Game.

    Are they really that Ignorant ! ?
    Are these game Developers that Ignorant that they believe
    in Car Video to be how it Really looks ?
    My Gawd, someone needs to Strap them in to a racing Car and take them for a few laps.

    It's back On the Shelf, maybe to never be used again..

    I must be totally clueless when it comes to World movement.
    I can't tell if the world outside the truck is moving or its me bouncing around inside the world especially at this mud slinging rally course in the #31 Rusty Motor Sports Bronco. One way or the other it doesn't seem to bother me a bit. But that's just me..

    Spend 2 minutes watch this short video and explain to me how "I" can tell ... Is the outside world moving ? or is it the truck moving around inside the outside world, because, I just don't get it.

    This Bronco in P cars 2 has given me and Hotty several hours of some of the most enjoyment I've had Racing any of the 3 great games that we currently have to choose from on the PS4 . For me the fun pack and the few cars that I've tried has been just that a total blast.
    Having the choice of three games gives me the opportunity to pick and choose the parts I like from each one.. What a wonderful world we live in..
    I can list many things that I don't like about all three , like in GT sport getting dumped out on the track, in traffic, right at Turn 1, unable to control your pit lane exit speed, that's crazy or the one thing that bothers me the most spending your only day off trying to earn credits just to buy a 2 million dollar car, one of the few in the game that I even have interest in and for just two 15-minute races. Hey but it does look good !!
    In AC looking in your mirror and seeing what looks not like a car but a spaceship hovering above the track behind you.
    In PCars the inconsistency of the strength levels of the AI. And a few more.
    I could go on but none of these concerns are going to stop me from playing any of the games although I must say that having to earn credits to buy cars will limit my ability to racing in GT sport. I'd much rather just pay the cash out front to have the cars accessible to me from the start.

    Change of subject !!!

    Santa came a little early for me with a new PS4 pro and a 55" Sony 4K TV. "I felt the need of a little retail therapy."
    The colors and the graphics upgrade is awesome in all the games... With the exception of AC, when I look in my mirror I still see that little spacecraft chasing behind me.. lol

    Merry Christmas to my friends !!
    And I wish you all a Great Racing New Year !!
