    Default PACER Update - Fixes news

    I thought it's time a thread like this was started, since a lot of people are wondering what's happening regarding what's being done to fix issues with the game.

    This was posted by R8 a few hours ago on 7/11/20.

    A big thank you to all of you for joining us for week one of PACER!

    Our team are continuing to work on the feedback coming through and whilst we have released Patch 1.03 this week, we also have another patch in the works, which will be landing early next week with more improvements expected across the board!

    We are very aware that a number of players are experiencing some game crashes whilst playing online on PS4 consoles and we already have a fix ready to remedy this next week.

    Additionally, we will be submitting the Xbox fixes (as well as the new patch updates and improvements) to Microsoft early next week. We don't expect the turn around time to be too long, but we currently can't give a firm date of when to expect release, but we will be updating you all as we get firm and final confirmation from Microsoft and the Xbox team.

    One more Xbox-related thing we would like to address before heading into the weekend - We have recently just finished up our first seasonal event (for Halloween) and due to the timing of the Xbox version not falling in place, this event has now passed. However, when the Xbox version launches, we will be running a time limited event where you will still be able to claim and unlock all of the same Halloween craft modifications.

    Hope you all have an incredible weekend,

    -Team R8Games


    For those on PS4 having online issues.
    Elhabib has deduced what is causing the problem and has posted a workaround until the fix lands next week....see below.

    ATTENTION!
    Online is having serious problems, as I'm sure you all have experienced by now, but today we found out a very curios pattern to it and also a WORKAROUND until it is fixed.
    The problem seems to be connected to loading screens - the online lobby I was in made it impossible for everyone but the host to play two consecutive races. It would always let you do one race and then crash on the loading screen of the next race - EVERY TIME, and for every player in the lobby but the host.
    HOWEVER we found a workaround for it: after each race, if you leave the online lobby and rejoin it (while the host is waiting), it will load the next race no problem. Doing this, leaving and rejoining the lobby after every race, I was able to do 6 or 7 consecutive races, a feat I have not managed in this game so far, unless I was hosting.
    I hope this helps, and please, @Game Developer , get this **** fixed. I know you got your hands full, but this is laughable. I have never seen a game on PS4 where online is so dysfunctional. And this is a seven year old system. You're seriously hurting your userbase.
    [9:37 AM]
    I'd like to add that upon leaving the lobby after every race, I would consistently get an error code after leaving! So the issue was obviously already there, just waiting for the next loading screen, as you also get one when you leave a lobby.

    I'm enjoying this game a lot more than i thought i would, visually it's exactly what i want from a new wipeout, it handles differently, but really well and races flow well and are fun, track design is great, day and night options are amazing...but yeah, a few bugs.

    I've noticed a lot of audio problems, the biggest is when i change some music artist options, then return to the game the d-pad randomly isn't working anymore. I play using the d-pad (old school wipeout dude) Control stick continues to work fine, then if i reset the audio options to default the d-pad control comes back. weird and annoying.

    The effect on music when you boost is odd too, it's like the music gets louder, i sort of see what they were trying but it doesn't sound great, wish that could be turned off or be fixed. The audio seems to have some odd effects or balance issues during races in general.

    During menu's the audio will also sometimes just cut out.

    Audio when collecting a pick-up or shield could do with a bit more noticeable sound effect, i always have to look at the HUD instead of knowing from the sound whether i actually got the pick up or not.

    The 3, 2, 1, Go is slightly out of synch with the voice countdown. Bit off putting.

    It doesn't have a voice announce 'Final Lap' which it absolutely should.

    Other than that, it's personal stuff, like i wish the lap counter and race position where slightly larger on screen and they lost the yellow highlights from the HUD as they stand out a bit.

    Solid release, though, absolutely worth a look if anyone needs more AG fun.

    Would you copy and paste all this in the Pacer discord for the devs to see, please? The more people point these things out, the more likely they are to change

    OK, doing it now.
    Was copying the conversation you had about craft specs in the new Tips thread I just started.

    @blackwiggle : can you consider an option to turn off air brakes sound effect? I don't even want to play the game currently because of this.

    EDIT : A friend of mine just streaming at the moment and got all gold medals in the campaign, the trophy didn't unlock... so it's not fixed in 1.04 as expected by the changelog.

    Thanks.

    I messaged the R8 twitter about the air brake thing today and got told it's been passed on to the team, hopefully so, it's super SUPER annoying how loud they are. Also i've noticed it doesn't save your custom controls when you re-launch the game, hopefully that's an easy fix though. Side note, having races at night is so damn cool and visually looks stunning, reminds me of racing in the original wipeout on rapier and how it changed the time of day.

    How do you know which Goals you've succeeded in? For example, if you've done 5/7, how do you know which events you've still got to do? Is this a bug? 🤔

    Latest Patch just went live. No fix for the insanely loud airbrakes yet unfortunately, but the game does now remember your custom controls when you turn off and come back to it. Woohoo!

    NEW PACER 1.05 UPDATE

    Hey @everyone!

    Our team have been tinkering with PACER down in the Garage and have made some tweaks, changes and improvements to the game which are now active and available in the latest Patch 1.05!

    Thank you for all of your feedback – we are currently hard at work on a brand new patch with even more improvements, fixes and features so look out for a future update and keep your feedback coming!

    Thanks,

    – R8Games Team

    Pacer Patch 1.05

    NEW FEATURE:

    On-line Lobby Notification - When a player is in an offline race and a multi-player race becomes available, a pop-out HUD notification will be displayed.
    - This can be enabled in the 'Gameplay' Settings menu (this is set to 'OFF' by default).


    GENERAL:

    {Fixed} - Campaign - Team Goal for Izulu has been reduced to requiring 5 events rather than 6 (Goal was not possible on event 3 - Shield Management).
    {Fixed} - Campaign - Trophies - Updated the unlock call for the '1% trophy', as this was incorrect for the console versions of the title only.
    {Fixed} - Campaign - Fixed crash when rapidly swapping back and forth between the campaign menus screens.
    {Fixed} - Settings - The 'Reset to Default' option in the Settings menu now only resets the currently selected tab instead of the entire menu.
    {Fixed} - Settings - When rebinding the controls, the change song option in the pause menu would incorrectly change track using the rebound controls, this is now set to always use L1/R1 / LB/RB buttons.

    {Fixed} - Settings - Fixed issue where changes to the control setting wasn't being saved correctly on the console versions of the title.

    {Crash/PS4} - Fixed an issue that would cause the title to crash with more than 5 users in the lobby.
    {Fixed} - Reduced the level of audio network replication that was introduced in patch 1.04, as this was having a negative effect on performance on all systems.
    {Fixed} - Refined the physics replication during multiplayer races, improving performance on all systems.


    KNOWN ISSUES:

    * Surround sound mix for the PS4 versions of the title is incorrect and will be updated in the next patch.

    * Fiyah! Fury Night variants can experience a performance drop in some multiplayer modes (this is more noticeable at higher speed classes with larger groups in a race).
    - During normal race conditions users should not experience this performance drop.

    * If the user joins a lobby as a spectator, they will be kicked with an NE003 error message after two races.
    - This issue isn't present if the user joins the lobby normally.
    - If the user joins as a spectator, backs out and joins once the race has ended they will avoid this issue.

    * New Speed lap / Endurance warning message will incorrectly display for a moment at the end of a multiplayer event.

    * Due to the rebalance of the team goals, it is possible to get a (6 / 5) for some team campaigns on the overview.

    It is annoying. I have done all the team goals for all teams except one. For the last one I have 5/6 team goals so there are 2 events left and I don't know which one will grant me the last team goal. I think they will change this in a patch. At least they are working on changing the looks of the career mode to make it a bit clearer and better looking. This issue with team goals will probably be fixed so that you can see which events actually has team goals and which don't and which team goals you have cleared or not.

    The thing is l was paying attention (luckily ) when l pressed Pacer on ps4, while loading saying press any key, which l did, after that not doing anything even my controller light is on and did pressed the "x" button, nothing happened but l just decided to press PS to see if goes back to main menu and it's does. So l closed the application and start again but lost my savedata and could not get it back ever since.

    Hope that helps you?

    Have you gone to saved data in system settings?
    You have the option to load saved data from online saved data, if you choose that it should restore your previous stored saved data from the PSN cloud.
