24 posts in this topic

It's a tad annoying.... Have to set my wheel up every time grrrrrrr and says I'm not signed into live and says no network connection. Hope they patch this problem.

Other then that liking it so far ;) I find it much harder then the last one but that's a good thing.

F1 2011 like F1 2010 is a direct port (add some directx11 support) from the console version which have better CPU than GPU. Thus the PC version works your CPU more than your GPU even for graphics (especially track reflection on) .

Do not touch the keyboard until after the screen loads, use the start button on your wheel. This is same issue that is in Dirt 3. Then after the screen loads your saved setting from last time can be used.

I enjoy this game a lot on the PC, getting flagged while on the starting grid is frustrating. Lots of these errant flags for no reason, sometimes my nose gets torn off and my crew chief has gone for a nap and does not notice. I can run the graphics on ultra on my i7 with 8 gigs of ram but reflections must be turned to low or they drain the lifeblood out of the game.

Papa, have you tried this and if so did it work for you?

Hi m8

No I have not tried it yet, I'll give it a go today.

I run a watercooled i7 Bloomfield over clocked to 4.02Ghz and a overclocked 6970 2048mb and 3x4GB ddr3 1600Mhz triple channel ;) runs everything on f1 at it's highest settings no problems ;)

Similar to my system but I have more ram (triple channel) but my cpu is not overclocked. i7 960 3.2Ghz and a geforce gtx 570 I am using a 55" Sony Bravio for a screen. With all the settings in F1 on ultra my system worked perfect, then I think there was a steam update and my frame rate remained the same after another benchmark, however the screen was choppy. So after a little research I found if I turned reflections down it worked like a champ. I will keep looking to see what I can come up with.

cheers

Today I set all the settings on ultra except for the reflections, turned it to medium and it works very well. Not sure either if a large monitor will effect frame rate. Papa, did you try the keyboard bypass for your wheel save yet?

I don't have a start button on my wheel. Will try not pressing any keys on the keyboard and will try the buttons on my wheel instead.

On the Thrustmaster Ferrari F430 Wheel there are 2 buttons at the bottom and it's the 1 on the right.(On the wheel not the base)

Thanks for this tip guys, also I was using the keyboard for all of the menus too and having to stretch over the wheel to get to it. Now I am using the buttons on the wheel instead. Was so excited to get my new wheel that I didn't try them, just assumed they wouldn't control the menus. The last wheel I had (many many years ago) didn't work with the menus.

Anyway thanks again and I'm off to go racing again now.
