    Yeah now that I think about it, they were lapping me after maybe 15 laps of le mans. I guess since they don't just blow by the way lmp1 does, I may just be struggling with letting them pass

    ¿Bad Graphics?
    Taken from my ps4

    GT sport is still a little better in graphics, but it does not handle physical complexities as it does Project Cars 2, the driving is simple and boring, it does not have climatic changes or day transitions, the AI is pure garbage and it only has 19 circuits unlike the 60 of project cars, for these reasons it looks better. And a question, in a car game, what is more important? The driving and content? Or just graphics?...

    Yep most of my settings are all locked out after the update (2nd page of options in photomode). A a few jaggies are still there, and you still can not focus on a car at all (it seems blurred on all settings) if you use replay>photo mode and not pausing in game? :((

    This game and NFS Payback seem to have gone a little step back in the detailed graphics/photo modes on the PS4 Pro 4K sequels to give more content to the user which I understand. Maybe there is a compromise and some content has to be dropped if the graphics are taking a hit.

    P.S All patch notes can be found by clicking options on the main PS4 menu over the game and selecting Update History/details. They have detailed everything! :)

    Still not fixed the bug where you will win a career championship, but the game will state otherwise and you can't progress to the next?

    I didn't see it in the patch notes.

    Sometimes i really dont understand you people. I played PCars 1 a couple of weeks before the launch of PCars 2 on my PS4 and i was surprised how poor it looked. PCars 2 on the other hand looked nice right from the start, with improved resolution, nice HDR and better frame rates on PS4 Pro. Im sure you guys rely too much on your memory of PCars 1. Go ahead and do a 1:1 comparsion. No way it looks better then PCars 2 on a 4K TV.

    Everything looks better in pCARS2 apart from the anti aliasing, but sacrifices had to be made for Livetrack etc. Regular PS4 user.

    They have made improvements to the looks in every patch so far, not that it ever looked that bad.

    These were taken last night from a replay.

    And this was taken at the start of the month from a replay

    So it is possible to focus on the car during replay, it does still however glitch out and stop doing so at times, however that is a lot less post 4.0.

    If the car is moving and you are at an angle (and the closer to 90 degrees from the front the more you need this) try turning the the tracking value up.

    I don't see a bit of improvement in DS4 steering!

    They have only added some new assist - not interested, driving without in all games.

    Here is problem that is consoles primary controller, DS4, basically unsupported!

    Like I'm driving boats in disturbed sea...

    I run a full rig and still use aids when its realistic for the car.

    I must confess to never understanding the need to go 'no aids ever' when in reality they are used and drivers in those series don;t switch them off.

    Why not give the new aid a go, its not as if you can't switch it back off if its not for you. I would also try @Wolfe DS4 settings as he gets along well with PC2 and a gamepad.

    Already tried his, from others in that and all other threads on this forum, on other forums, YouTube, FL and my own variations - and nothing!

    It's simple, it is, or it's not default "supported".

    Playing racing games from GT1 days, to GTR 2, rFactor, RBR, TOCAs, CMs, Dirts, GRIDs, WRCs, F1s, Moto GPs, NFSs to DC, FMs, FH3...to AC, PC1, GT5P, 5, 6, S, FM5, 6, 7 (smooth with manual clutch!)...

    No single game, including original pCars, was so hard to drive with gamepad.

    It's only up to developers.

    From reading the public forum, it seems Assetto Corsa had a similar problem earlier in the week with their PS4 update. I have no idea where the fault lies with this problem but it "might" be out of SMS' control. Keep an eye on the public forum and Discord as I'm sure the solution will pop up there as soon as it's established :). Obviously very frustrating for those that have been affected by it :(.

    Using photo mode in racing games to convince us the graphics are amazing is a bit like Obama saying he was going to make the world a better place which of course turns out to be a pure lie like the majority of politicians. Just tell the truth the graphics do not look like that when racing.

    Its already been done and exact same screens have been took of each game and Pcars1 looks quite a bit better. Pcars 2 biggest problem is the awful AA, agressive LOD changes and the weirdskyboxes at dusk n dawn that seem to be full of squares and artifacts.

    Somebody has posted, on the public forum, that launching the game with LAN (and WLAN) disabled, to start in offline mode, has allowed the game to launch. If those struggling with the CE error code want to give that a try. I guess that, once launched, you can then re-connect but that's not mentioned. I don't have a PS4 so I can't test this out, sorry :O.

    Not even close to GTS in terms of graphics. I own PC2 on PC, which obviously looks better than PS4 and GT destroys it graphically. No contest.

    It doesnt need to look as good as GTS though.

    Look its a decent looking racer on the PS4 Pro not great and not awful and its improved since launch lets leave it at that before more photomode pics pop up.

    I meant Wolfe’s DS4 settings, not just the opposite lock aid. Can I find them somewhere?

    For some reason my post processing effects had been turned off. I turned them on again and some of the Photomode options returned.
    But right now it's looking like this:

    Only three working sliders.
