I was playing in playa azul and my car just loses its power mid-race. Happened to me twice in a row. Luckily I was recording, and can’t find any reason why this would happen. I can share a video if necessary.
I was looking for a fuel gauge in case it’s a fuel management thing, but I don’t see a fuel gauge anywhere. Any help is appreciated, this is really ruining my enjoyment of the game.
Definitely not a drive issue, and definitely a network issue. I have an NVMe SSD, so no slow down issues there, and when playing strictly in solo mode, there are no “Sudden Stops” as there are when playing online.
Wrong issue. Though the OP would need to be more specific about what he meant. World pop-in issues will give a notification of low bandwidth. Network stoppage will give a notification of being disconnected.
Network stoppage does not always come with a notification. I’ve had this happen more than 4 dozen times since the Premium Edition launch on the 5th, and less than half of those “Sudden Stops” came with a network disconnect warning (though all were definitely as a result of said disconnect), but this shouldn’t be a surprise given the idiotically broken nature of this game.
H5 has a lot of “cheats” built in to help their lousy drivatars. Your car will loose power and grip while the
drivatars will get a huge nitroboost and go like on rails. But I`m still beating them in my -65 Mini
The game doesn’t have a power reduction cheat. My car doesn’t slow down during a race. I did the 22 Minute Gauntlet, and my car was the same all the time. I don’t have tyre wear turned on, and that’s the only thing I can think of.
Yes the hard drive problem IIRC could occur when driving very fast on the motorway, it would exceed the ability of the hard drive to stream the world in fast enough sometimes.
The sudden stop can happen any time and AFAIK is network related. The error message may not appear until some time afterwards also. Unfortunately it is highly desirable to play ‘online’ because there is then far less traffic and drivatars to hinder you on the roads.
Well I’ve never had it happen on low speed. But it’s still odd that FH4 had the same bug that was Hard Drive, and this bug you say from the same game engine is now loss of connection. Two identical bugs, same engine, and you say different bug.
