View Full Version : Wrong position in online multiplayer

During race in online multiplayer, everything related to my position is always off by a couple of positions. So e.g. if I'm in position 8, it treats me like I'm in position 3.
So things like:
"You are 1.2 second behind the car in front", is wrong.
Callouts for cars crashing/spinning in front, actually happens elsewhere on the track.
My actual position callouts, "Thats a podium finish" even though I finished P8.

The actual difference varies from race to race. I'm guessing it has to do with people leaving/joining not taken in to account.
I've always played servers where there first is a "Qualification" session followed by a "Race" session.

I love cc, but this unfortunately makes it unusable for online racing.

this happens because the app thinks the different cars in your race are different classes. AC doesn't send car class data, it only sends car model data so when the app encounters car names it's not seen before it puts them in different car classes. You can override this behaviour by enabling the "force single class" property
