What did you do in ACC today?

I did another race tonight at Misano, but something weird happened with my set-up/car.

I was doing just fine, but then I messed up one corner and then the whole set-up of the car was all wrong. I thought I might have done something to affect the handling, but now I think that it was the other way around - that the set-up somehow changed and made me mess up the corner.

What was odd, though, was that the new 'settings' persisted and I couldn't get rid of the effect... I did FP and Q1 no problem, and if anything the wheel felt a bit light and understeery - but then it suddenly went to strong Force Feedback and massive oversteer during Q2, which then lasted for both races. It ended up being so bad, that I had to restart the entire race weekend to get rid of the problem.

Any ideas what happened??
 
So I have a question for you multi-platform players. I have been thinking about buying a gaming computer to play ACC. When I start up ACC on the PC am I going to have to start over from the beginning or is the a way to transfer my PS5 game data over?

I know when I moved from playing World of Tanks on PS5 to Xbox I had to start over. Apparently the user data was not stored in the Wargaming servers.

Curious if I can expect the same.

I think if you switch PS5 you would more likely have to start over
Yep that is what everyone said. When I moved from PS4 Pro to PS5 my account was on the Sony Game network so everything moved over. But moving to PC means your account is now on the Steam (?) network (or some where else - not really sure), the account won't transfer. Ok with me, just means more racing time for me.

Today was interesting. On my NA account I was trying to complete my first career mode season. It started with a testing session at Spa, then continuing with a Spa weekend highlighted by the "24 Hours of Spa". Two practice sessions followed by three qualification sessions. Everything good good considering the Porsche at Spa is a weak combination for me. So about to start the race, sitting there lined up ready to go, casually glanced to see how long the race is and BAM . . . this stupid race is six hours long. My arse cannot handle 6 hours in the fighting chair. I barely survived the 2 hour stint at Circuit Paul Richard.

Any suggestions on how to make this happen? I know I can pause it every hour but that seems ridiculous to me. I am thinking of resetting but without completing this race it will be impossible to eventually getting the platinum trophy.

Why would they put this long race in the game?
 
I think I did career mode a couple of times but after I realized I can do a custom championship I left the career mode alone. I am not sure if you can tweak the career mode races like you can in the custom championship though. I finished the 1st race in my custom championship. Took 29th place 🤣 on the bright side I was able to successfully do a pit stop and I didn't finish in 30th place. Zolder was difficult for me just in terms of me not knowing the track. I also haven't played ACC enough to be better than I am now.
 
I made a stupid mistake at the weekend - I finished a race weekend at Misano and won both races. I then watched a bit of the replay but was trying to figure out how to switch back to using the controller (instead of the buttons on the wheel) without turning off the game, but it was eluding me - so I switched off the game and went back in using the controller, only to realise that because of the replay, I hadn't hit 'Continue' on my season progress, and the whole race weekend progress was lost :( This was after having to restart the event when the controls went funny (see above) and made the car almost undrivable. So now I will have to do FP, Q1, Q2 and both races for a 3rd time :ouch:

That said, it has shown me that 'Easy' is too easy for me, so I'm quite happy about that, and will switch to whatever is above Easy for the next attempt.

I was also unfamiliar with Zolder when I first tried it a few weeks ago. I was initially a bit skeptical about it, it seems like whoever designed it looooooves a chicane... but it didn't take long for it to click, and I ended up enjoying the track.
 
The 1st couple of times I was racing on the track I didn't like it but now even if I don't know it like I need to I do enjoy the track. It has a good flow to it. As I get more time there I will get better at this track. The next track is Monza and outside of T1 I should be good 🤣.
