Why do I have to turn on streamer mode everytime i turn on the game? Can someone ask the DEVS if they can change this option to save when we turn off the game? I cant seem to figure out why I have to do it everytime.

There seriously needs to be an Always On option so we don't have to manually re-enable it each time we start the game.

Have the devs ever answered why it is not an always on option?

Maybe they got paid money by the music creators to make it revert to playing their music?

The video is unlisted on youtube, and has had 0 views.
Copy/paste reply.
Also "It's definitely troubling to hear that happen in the game" seems a bit over the top TBH.
i kinda get the feeling that this guy didnt read anything, or even watch the video.
Now i am left to wonder, did this guy actually boot it up the food chain, or just close the ticket and move on.
My money is on the latter.

Words cannot express how valued i feel as a customer.

I nickname it: 'Screamer Mode', until the fix comes.

I tried to ask at th live stream but they did not see the question or did not want to answer. Does anyone know a DEV they can relay this to?

honestly experimenting the same damned issue of starting the game, going to online and then damned I forgot to put the streamer mode ... and once you are in a race, too late, you voluntary fail a race and go in the options or enjoy the damned music ...
On the other hand I would be as surprised they would fix this than I would be they fix the damned winter tyres tag, the display of tunes list, the wheel spin missing duplicate skipper etc . They release new things but they don't finish half baked features.
Neo open your mind, you are just a drivatar

I got the same exact reply when I sent a ticket about the MB 6X6 using the incorrect sound. And then they closed the ticket. When I got an email asking if I was happy with the support I said I was dissatisfied.

Regarding streamer mode, I think this is the only game I've ever played where I have to have a routine every time I open the game. First, make sure to mute my sound so I don't go deaf from the overly loud loading screens, then go into settings and turn on streamer mode.

And on that subject, this is the ONLY GAME I'VE EVER PLAYED that constantly resets my video settings. Why the hell is that a thing? I had to take a picture of my damn settings and keep it on my phone so I can make sure everything is correct all the time.

You would think that the devs would want to fix this. Unless they are not allowed to because of a legal reason.

I watched a youtube video about this and they said that the Devs have a deal with the music creators. So it is in the contract that they are not allowed to default to streamer mode. That is upsetting

Marking a ticket as SOLVED just because they don't require more information is straight up cheating the ticket system. Sounds to me like support staff are gaming the ticket statistics to impress corporate management.

In this particular situation I believe the streamer mode is working as deliberately designed. It's not a bug. The devs intend that the user must activate streamer mode every time they start the game. Same as that the audio sliders only go down to 1 (not zero). They want to force the music upon you. I'm sure that the streamer mode option was only created because they could make it temporary (while saving the audio sliders positions) . Otherwise they would have just let us turn the music audio slider to zero. It's pretty clear the devs discussed and then designed the audio system deliberately to make us listen to the music. Look at the way the radio works. You can turn it to off, but start a story mode, and it is automatically put on a specific playlist, you need need to wait until the game gives you control of the radio to turn it off again. I'm going to guess that it's a design choice to please the publishing houses of the musical talent.

I think you are 100% right on this. It sucks but I also believe streamer mode was intended to stay off until you turn it on. Most likely to please the music artists. I just find it to be annoying to have to change it every time.

Streamer mode is the game music though isn't it? Mine is! The difference is that the DJ's turned off.

I guess that there is only one (special?) radio station in streamer mode.

Doing that doesn't put the game into streamer mode. You end up with spotify and in-game music playing at the same time.
