Product Update - Valve
F1 2012 – PC Patch #11 News

Today sees patch #11 available on Steam for PC versions of F1 2012. This is very likely to be the last patch for PC.

This update addresses the following issues:
• Made an improvement to the AI under braking that will stop them from crashing in to the back of the player so frequently.
• Deactivated the run_on_cpu option which was added with the last patch. The feedback given did not indicate that this improved the framerate for anybody.Fixed two issues when using the Logitech Wingman Formula Force GP Wheel.
o The default Logitech control profile is always selected after player attempts to customise the controls with this wheel.
o Placeholder graphic shown for View Replay button icon when using a Logitech Wingman Formula Force GP Wheel as no button/key is assigned to View Replay.

Work Arounds:
• If you’re getting a stuttering during gameplay please try turning your Anti Aliasing setting down.
• If you have the incorrect race distance in season two issue please try.
1. From the Main Menu select Career -> Career -> Settings -> Race Settings.
2. Back out (you don’t need to change anything) and scroll back to the Main Hub.
3. You can now continue your play through as normal.

The fixes listed above and those specific to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game are also being tested and verified on those platforms. As these versions require additional submission and authorisation from both Microsoft and Sony the release date for these will follow a little later than the PC version.

We are working on other issues you have reported via the forums, Facebook and Twitter and are working to fix them as quickly as possible. In the meantime, please note that we are still collecting feedback via our Technical Assistance forums and do encourage you to post your issues there being sure to include as much information as possible.

Thanks for your continued feedback!

F1 2012 – PC Patch #10 News

Today sees patch #10 available on Steam for PC versions of F1 2012.

This update addresses the following issues:

• Made some more minor improvements to the online. We’re keen to get feedback on these changes via our forums.
• Fixed an issue which would show a session to be “In The Lobby” when players were actually racing.
• Fixed an issue where the Engineer would always be one place out when talking about your position relative to your objective.
• Fixed some minor text issues with emails and press clipplings.
• If you have seen lower GPU usage and framerate drop on the more recent patches you can try adding the line to hardware_settings_config.xml in Documents\My Games\FormulaOne2012\hardwaresettings. If this does cause unwanted side effects, please undo the change by deleting the line from the config.

Product Update - Valve
Today sees patch #7 available on Steam for PC versions of F1 2012.

This update addresses the following issues:

• Added two new options for PC users to improve voice communications.
1. Added a Push To Talk option. This can be turned on in the Audio Options (My F1 -> Audio) and is bound to T by default. The key used can be edited in My F1 -> Driving Controls -> View / Customise Profile.
2. Added a Disable All Voice Comms option. This can be turned on in the Audio Options (My F1 -> Audio) and will disable all outgoing and incoming voice communication.
• Fixed an issue where the track could become wet without any rain being visible.
• Rebalanced engine wear so it will go below 99% during a season.
