    I was able tonight it up tonight.first time I tried in a number of months and it was the first time in almost 12months I didnt get a 503 error.hope this is a sign of things to come.
    Nice inclusions in the patch I especially like the fuel and tyre multipliers and extra race setup options I did find however that I was getting shunted from behind a bit by the ai

    Each class of AI is going to behave differently, and some are better than others... even after this update.

    If you can make note of the more problematic ones, it may be easier to take a look at them and continue to improve them in the future :)

    The game is still not working. Seems they just increased timeouts on the server.

    I know, you are, guys, working on the issue, but it would be cool to have some statement what's going on.

    Thanks.

    Okay... today the game is unplayable again for me, but at least the error message has evolved. I'm now getting error 324 instead of 503.

    I just checked latest steam reviews and, as I said earlier in this thread, problems like this lead to the poor overall reputation the game has on steam. About half of the latest reviews since the update are negative and pointing to the current problems. Some people gave a negativ review after many ours of playing before, pointing out to slow menus and error 503.

    Haha I've just checked the recent reviews in my native language:
    Negative reviews:
    "It needs too much disk space"
    "It's sh*t"
    "The video says 80+ cars, but only 6 of them is free"
    "Cars are undriveable"
    "I'll stick with Project CARS"

    The opinions are the same in our team, yet 100% dedicated to Raceroom.

    - Error 503, loading time of several minutes between each click on the menu
    - New portal of rare ugliness
    - Invisible cars during a 2nd race in multi
    - Manual transmission (H-grid) which has become fragile as glass
    ...

    People are so tired of these bugs that they no longer even look at the good things contained in the patch (there are some). And they are tired of seeing that programmers are wasting time on things without importance (what an idea to bother to change the look of the portal when there is not even flags management in race!)

    Please... it becomes urgent to debug the game and put the resources on what is really important now.

    After two days I'm still unable to play the game.

    No longer getting the Error 503s. Instead the menus hang when I try and start a race.

    I'm almost sure that programmers who work on the portal (web technology) aren't the same that works with the flag system (game engine, using probably C or C++ languages), so my guess is that even if they didn't changed the portal look it wouldn't change anything on the flag system.

    I kind of agree to this - a couple of bad downshifts and the gearbox is gone. I'm a huge fan of proper damage, but this is probably a bit overdone.

    And here we go again. It's not the same people working on the game and doing web site front end. Come on.

    my portal still shows my average position as no.1 in my 33 competition-races ... theoratically it would be possible, but the truth lies a 'few' places behind :grimacing:

    a reset-button to reset all stats?

    Nothing goes. Not even error numbers appear anymore. People attacking Raceroom anyway see their major criticism confirmed: "always online - no way for me!". Stupid idea from all beginning on that was. Stupid.

    No good advertising. New friends get won differently.

    This "feature" has to be gotten rid of. If Steam is switched off, the game has to run properly in single player. Period. There is no weaseling and excusing around this. Statistics data can be kept on HD and uploaded next time Raceroom has been switched by its user to run in online mode. Some, like me, will almost never care to do so, its not our cup of tea. Still we get blocked from using what we paid for.

    Getting more simply-gained satisfaction in Assetto Corsa now. Some things it does hilariously better than this Raceroom design ever will.

    Chances that I will buy any of the new or upcoming content, have dramatically dropped today. This event serves as a warning to me. Don't count on me spending coins again as long as this hilarious online-always thing is gone.

    The FFB and handling seem some how a little more sweeter if I could only play the game with out this damn ERROR 503
    If only AC did not have such rubbish FFB physics I would be a great game .

    It's acting up again yeah, though so far it's not as bad as yesterday when I could not get a single lap in.
