    Trying to suggest driving stock cars to a person who clearly prefers tuning cars at the moment won't really do that person any good. You stating "They're more fun" is purely your opinion. Yes, I do drive stock cars here and there, but I prefer tuning cars 85% of the time. And that 85% is right now. I enjoy GT6 hugely because of tuning, and right now I can't enjoy the game fully because of the bug.

    Is the problem fixed? I managed to tune the top speed of my Ferrari 458 with no problems.

    I'm pretty sure PD will announce that they finally got it fixed, IF they finally got it fixed.

    Did anyone else have problems accessing the community and seasonal events pages yesterday? I'm not sure if this means anything or not though

    No problems accessing the seasonals here yesterday. Maybe a local issue?

    The transmission bug is still alive and kicking. You cannot change your final drive ratio any more.

    This bug doesn't bother if you just set your final gear first, then move MAX speed slider to that speed where you can find your desired gear values for each gear.
    Super long 1st gears for 5-speed boxes is hard to set now, but close enough.

    You mean "There is no Easter Holiday in Japan."?

    I hope OdeFinn is right, I have to try this when I'm home.

    And you can adjust the final as needed for the track once the gears are set. It is the speed set to the minimum that triggers the bug.

    The bug is triggered when the final drive is the most recent adjustment made in the transmission settings. If the tune u had on your gtr had final drive adjustments made to it either months ago or just prior to entry, as soon as you enter track the bug goes into effect.

    The bug returns the final drive and speed slider to default and slides all the gears far left ( which is why the last gear is so long)

    PD have acknowledged the presence of an "issue" with the 1.17 update but they have not provided us with any further insight such as a time frame or eta for a fix of any kind.

    Usual hilarious thread of people complaining for the sake of complaining... .

    The tranny bug doesn't affect on-line, has no real impact on tuning for Seasonals, and even less on how enjoyable the game is to play - you might not get a perfectly optimised gear set off-line, but it's easy enough to find a workable set with a bit of effort by simply tweaking the max speed then setting the individual gears as before (1st/2nd all way left, top gear all way right, move remaining to get a good spread).

    It's hardly ruining the game. Grow up ffs :rolleyes:

    One mans poison and all that... I think the F40 Seasonal is one of the best ever; the car is just a joy to drive.

    So far, I've run tuned at 550ppts, stock at 528ppts on SH and stock at 528ppts on comfort softs, and all configurations are fabulous to drive.

    PD have also given you a Seasonal at London to run as well as 3 Vision TT's and the A spec events. But you just have a whinge about the F40 one as it's a bit more difficult than usual :rolleyes:

    Except making the switch to Project Cars requires you to buy a PS4 (£350), at least a T300 (£250) and the game itself (£50). £650. For a game with no track record. Of course PD are going to lose all their players :lol:

    Ive tested that and it will trigger the bug under certain circumstances. (BTW the speed setting is not the culprit)

    I set to default, and never moved speed slider at all. then tried adjusting gears first then final. also tried final first then gears. both scenarios had the same result:

    If the final is set too far left or right the bug is triggered
    If the final is set within the "safe" range the bug is not triggered

    Im not sure how this safe range is determined (percentage perhaps)

    Ahhh!! :idea: No wonder. Yeah, I have always been using final drive to fine-tune my transmission, especially on cars that I used tranny flip on. I use it most of the time to get my top speed right while keeping my lower gears in place.

    Playing GT7 will cost you the same, so the cost is a moot point for anyone that is planning on playing GT7 anyway. Whatever it costs to play one is the same for the other, the only thing that changes is the timing.

    GT7 is a relatively known quantity, Project Cars isn't.

    Either way, it's a lot of money to make the switch, and I very much doubt PD will lose more than a small number of players over night :tup:

    Irrelevant to my point. Anyone intending to get GT7, the cost for PCars is just the cost of the game, the only thing that changes is when you buy the wheel and the PS4, if you haven't already.

    The point about losing large amounts fans to PCars, no that's not going to happen, I completely agree. A handful maybe, not enough to measure, as anyone that gets the PS4 and PCars will likely get GT7 too.

    Johnny in all honesty,I'm done with broken promises,broken games and the general disdain PD/Sony has given supporters of this franchise. I as well as you are going PC route, I have a PS4 new wheel etc.My son split the cost of PS4 as his friends are Sony supporters. PC has no online BS, ( servers) it has mods,etc. Plus you can use what ever wheel you want. That's my thoughts on this.

    For me, it actually costs a lot less to play PCars since I already have a fast gaming PC.

    To play GT7, I'll need to buy a new wheel.

    This reminds me a bit of the savegame bug we had with Grid Autosport last year. Took codies almost a month to release the necessary patch for consoles, mainly because after they fixed it themselves they had to go through a lengthy process with Sony and MS so they would approve the patch for release.

    Wow,... i'm defending PD :eek:
    Can't even remember the last time :D

    Of course this bug goes down right when I started getting into drifting, and this bug has killed it for me. I haven't logged on once and won't until this is fixed.

    Tend to agree with this sentiment.

    You guys do realise that you can still tune a gearbox ... right?

    I'm not suggesting the bug's not a PITA.
    But how about making lemonade out of lemons and take the opportunity to learn to tune a gearbox without relying on someone else's settings or resorting to your standard way of tuning a flipped transmission like you always do?
    To read people saying that they love tuning but that this bug has ruined the game just makes me scratch my head.

    Take up the challenge and run with it.
    Everyone's in the same boat.
    Who knows ... you may even learn something.

    Yes it's inconvenient, and yes I too wish they would issue a patch to fix it.
    But it's hardly a game breaker.

    I can't speak for everyone, but I sure am not complaining for the sake of complaining, whatever that means. Because I wasn't joking when I said I gone back to GT2.

    I prefer trying out other people's tunes versus creating my own. I want to not only test drive them, but also use them in events to see how well they perform in a race.
    But this bug is preventing me from doing this, so yeah, the game has been ruined for me, since I can't do something I was looking forward to doing in the game.

    And it's disappointing because I can't find anything else to do in the game that interests me. All I did in GT6 was turn it on to B-Spec grind and use the money to buy cars that maybe one day I'll drive, and I don't even do that anymore. That says a lot.

    Furthermore, 3 weeks have passed since the fix has been announced and still no word about it. This, along with PD's track record when it comes to updates, seeing people fed up with the game is really no surprise.

    I'd rather PD just keep their lemons while I take apples to make apple juice by just playing something else.
