Hmm, how is someone with a ATI Radeon HD 4870 (1 GB)  is now happy with the graphics ( FollowWings ) and somebody with a Powercolor 390 pcs+  is not ( Dela )?

Is this a AMD driver issue or a GPU issue?

And a recent thread over at Steam:

is there any system requirements for this game ?
im just curious.. cause..ok my pc is not some monster.. but still it's not ????..
i have R9 390 8gb graphics cards 8gb rams and fx 8350 cpu
and my game just sucks.. when i turn off every single thing that can be turned off or set to low.. with 8 oponents in single player it's just lagfest.. bearly getting 20 fps..
is that ok or it sucks just for me ?

¨

Well it didn't run well on 7970Ghz and it didn't run any better on 390. Single player for example mower derby runs just fine (if you turn off grass) but multiplayer you need to turn everything in low to get steady(not still steady) 60fps. I don't think it's just driver issue because on single player my fps without shadows and grass is hovering anywhere between 150+ to 35.


What is your GPU usage when the fps is low? If it isn't maxing, it's a problem with CPU then.
Though it's likely that some new AMD has problems.

Still runs like an ass if you have amd gpu. Yes i know amd is cpu heavy but cpu usage was about 60%. I will personally stop supporting this game even though i'm finnish if you are just pushing nvidia friendly tech. It's absolute bullshit that your game runs so much better on equivalent hardware on nvidia card than it does with amd gpu's.

My specs are lower than yours, and I ran Stadium:

Single player, full graphics settings, 24 cars, 20 minutes.

There was a noticeable drop in frame-rate.  Not enough to impact game-play, but just enough that it was starting to give me eye-strain.  CPU usage was about 50%, peaking around 3.2G.  And I was running a GPU monitor, temps were steady at about 70C - warm, but still nominal.

If you're experiencing such serious drops in frame-rate with that setup, I suggest there is something going on other than Bugbear or AMD - malware, viruses, bloatware, too many background programs, have you dusted lately? 

-Don

I'm running clean computer i have no issues with any other game and yes i tested before i spoke so i ran game with bare minimal background programs open. Like i said it seems to be worse on multiplayer for ? reason and different tracks too so for example stadium might be ok ish but then tarmac 1 is absolute ass (if you have anything on and 23 opponents) Don't get me wrong i'm not angry amd fanboy i just don't get why this game runs so much better on nvidia cards and by so much i mean steady 20-30fps difference

Thanks for the update, I think it's the best out there yet! Graphics look good, driving feels great and somehow the sense of speed is there again. Been driving with the new Asian 1 for few hours and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite vehicles.

Still need some more FFB with Europeans in my opinion. Americans and the Asian one works perfect with Logitech DFGT.

Good work BB!

I'm liking all this new content, but is the mechanical damage ever gonna be updated too? The way it is now is killing my experience, if anything it's defying my reason for playing Wreckfest in the first place. Right now, there's no real tactic to dishing out hits, besides avoiding them. Not fun. :(

I'd like it to go back to the golden days of build 7's; The harder you hit someone, the less damage you generally take.

currently the car's corners seem to be the vulnerable spots, bad choice as those are the spots the hitter uses. i'm ok with the hitter getting damage like now but then make targets vulnerable, not targeters. wheels, doors, you don't hit with these, they could be the vulnerable spots in a game.

wreckfest provides high-speed derby arenas and a damage model for low-speed ones, that doesn't fit. high-speed needs either strong attacker spots (front mostly) and weak target spots (like said: doors, wheels) or a speed-based damage system, where the more speed you contribute to the crash, the less damage you get (if opponent's speed contribution is fixed), not just the more speed you contribute, the more damage gets opponent.

another thing that kills derby experience for me is that pushing a car in a wall or other car has little to no effect. there's just no damage on your side of the opponent, only where he hits wall/other car and that damage is not even increased by the additional weight you provide to the crash. only effect it seems is that the opponent gets a crash he can't avoid. wow.

btw: this is how you deal takedowns 8)

The FFB in Wreckfest is not great in my opinion. The FFB feels very 'binary' and not very linear.
Also the European cars indeed lack force.
I have to note the European 1 car is tricky by nature as it has the engine behind the rear axle. It is really a 9/10ths car as driving it 10/10ths will make it spin (also in real life), nothing FFB is going to change about I think.

As for the Asian 1: it is really a nice car. There is however one miss in my opinion: it does sound like a 4 cylinder and not even close to how a straigth 6 should sound.
A straight 6 sounds really smooth and it zings at high revs.

Can you focus on more GAME MODES on the next update please ?



I remember a game that had a sumo mode, like a derby but on a hill or oil platform and you win points when you push somebody out (and then he respawn randomly). I was champion on that mode, maybe that´s why I would like to have it again  ::)

It did require skill tho.

Thanks for this fast update.  :)
I must admit that I have not played the game for a while and not tried the 2016-02-26 update.

Main reason is: There is still not the game mode implemented that would keep me playing longer than a few hours.

Can you focus on more GAME MODES on the next update please ?

Janne, can you tell me please is there a "points for turning other cars" planned and when to expect that mode ?
I mean the Wrecking Racing mode from the old Destruction Derby 1.  :D

I would like to have a race speed slider in single player races where you can reduce the car speeds. I think the speed after the race is over (about 60 km/h) is good for Wrecking Racing where the ONLY goal is to make points by turning opponent cars.

Thank you very much.

Yeah, the game feels slow and a game wouldnt need a lot of stuff to make it better when it's fun. Before they came with that big overhaul update the game was like that for me. Endless fun.

The cars are still losing fenders and doors like it's their job. Why don't the cars stay in tact? Did you remove all the factory bolts and screws in the front clip? No comprende.

Seriously though, just let the cars bend upwards. And the am4 "derby" version doesn't have bumpers welded on?  The inner fenders aren't welded to the frame. You have no hood bolts to keep the front clip together, no rods in the trunk? What kind of backyard hick-*** **** is this? Reminds me of how every citiot sees derbies.

That being said, I like the way it performs with the reduced weight, you just didn't add anything for strength or any derby parts.  You put a tin foil bumper on the front of it with 2 chains attached to it. Congratulations on making the trailer trash version of a 1 hit and done derby car.

Have you tried Sams "UK bangers" mod in steam workshop, those granada's crumple like BB never got them to.

Be keen to read what you think after trying it m8, I know you have been here from the start.
