    Tips/Tricks/Issues
    ACC brings with it some interesting and unique challenges compared to PCars2 and GTSport. I will post some tips and tricks to help deal with some of the issues that have been picked up from the Testing events.

    Entering the Server
    Hopefully this will be fixed with the upcoming update. The game will crash when in the Multiplayer menus if you have too many friends. The magic number seems to be 130. If you are having issues entering the Server you have 3 options, delete friends to get below 130, enter via Join Session in the Friends list on the PSN Menu or setup another PSN account.

    Creating New Account
    https://www.raceonoz.com/forums/index.php?threads/creating-additional-user-account.4200/

    **Since the most recent update the menus have changed. Go to Server List, Search Rooz and select the server (note that nothing will happen), Select your car at this point & Confirm, Select the Server again and click on Connect, you will then be prompted for the password**

    Track Limits
    The in-game track limits & penalties cannot be turned off in the server. The track limits has a lot of leniency compared to PCars and GTSport. If you run wide or cut a corner, you will be given 3 warnings before a Stop&Go penalty is given. If you purposefully cut a corner (straight through a chicane at speed), a drive through penalty is issued. But if, for example, you outbrake yourself and cut through a chicane, slow down and don’t gain an advantage, no penalty or warning is given.

    Pitstops
    Assign a button for Pit Limiter, Ignition, engine start and to cycle MFD. Make sure you are in and stay in 1st gear throughout the pit lane cycle. Pit time will be reduced if you manually turn the car off & on during pit stops. Make sure that the brake change is turned off. This can be done in the Setup menu under fuel and strategy.
    Ensure you have brake change turned off!

    Race Start
    There is 2 minutes prior to the race start to sort out strategy. You will need to press drive before the counter finishes or you will be starting from pitlane. When the rolling start begins you will need to stay within green lines on the screen and on your side of the road, this may not be the side of the road you took off from. Ignore what other cars are doing around you and stay within the lines on the screen.
    **Speed limit at race start is now 70**

    Replays and Highlights
    I suggest assigning a button to save replays and highlights, however it is a little hit & miss. This will be important to get footage for protests. Recording your in-car footage via the Share button will be important as well. If you do not know how to set the Share button to record your footage let me know.
    **there has been an issue with the game crashing when attempting to save the replay**

    on a few occassions when i've pressed drive, the game has changed the control settings with wheel rates/gain etc back to some sort of default, so I'm now in the habit of reloading them before the race start

    OP has been updated

    The multiplayer menus have changed since the latest update & I have posted a guide to creating a new PSN account that runs off your existing PS Subscription.

    Also, there is a glitch with the car selection in multiplayer, you will need to select the car in the Server List menu.

    Does everyone know all the little Car Setup bits and pieces on ACC that nobody ever thought would be good in a manual? Like Brake Pad compositions and ECU Maps?

    I’m hoping they also release a graphic and performance upgrade for PS5. Unlikely but fingers crossed.

    Cheers for helping me get things up and going JJ.
    For those jumping over one thing I found (well JJ pointed it out) was that my wheel (t300) seemed like as soon as you gave any steering imput, it felt like the car wanted to steer itself. Very unsettling and couldnt find a groove.
    Once I updated my wheels firmware, it was a million times better. Cheers again JJ

    it sounds like your talking about capturing your gameplay through the playstation share button feature. If that's right, you can set it up to either capture the previous 60mins of gameplay when you press the button, or you can set it up to double tap and it will just start recording until you double tap again to stop
