Patch 1.06 Change List

GENERAL:

{Fixed} – Audio – Updated the audio mix and surround sound settings for all versions – (additional tweaks are still being implemented).
{Fixed} – Tracks – Aguila – Altered the collision at the top of the tunnel entrances so at higher speed classes the user is less likely to become stuck or experience odd physics issues.

MULTI-PLAYER:

{Fixed} – Audio – Optimised the collision audio for lower end consoles to improve gameplay performance for all players.
{Fixed} – Spectator – Fixed an issue where if a user joins an online lobby as a spectator, they will be incorrectly removed from the lobby on their second race with a NE003 Error.
{Fixed} – Online Lobby Notifications – Fixed an issue that prevented the online notification working with certain hardware configurations.
{Fixed} – Online Lobby Notifications – Fixed an issue where the button to automatically join an online lobby was clipping out of the pause menu in some languages.
{Fixed} – Online Lobby Notifications – This can be enabled/disabled in the ‘Gameplay’ Settings menu (this is set to ‘ON’ by default).
{Fixed} – Settings – Fixed an issue where it was possible to create an online destruction lobby without weapons.

KNOWN ISSUES:

* Massive collision events in a race can cause a performance drop (e.g. when 5 or more craft all collide with the track walls at the same time)
– This issue is the cause of the random frame drop as can be seen when AI collide with the track walls on some tracks.
– This issue is more prominent when all users are on the screen at the same time

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

* Due to the rebalancing of the team goals, it is possible to get a (6/5) for some team campaigns on the overview.
– Unlocks will be awarded to the user at 5 completions.
– This is being addressed in the next patch where improved end user tracking of the goals is being added.

* We have received reports of users losing their save data on the PS4 platform.
– We are currently investigating this issue but have so far been unsuccessful in finding any replication steps.
– If anyone can provide additional information to this issue please get in touch with the team.
