Crash On Loading Screen

While the game is well optimized, there are still some issues that plague the game. Namely, the crash on the loading screen issue. Unfortunately, some players are facing an issue where the game immediately crashes when they start their team career. For now, the only fix for it seems to be to check the game files if it is launching at your screen’s native resolution or not. You can also check to see if you meet the system requirements and update your graphics drivers as well.

No Commentator or Engine Sounds

This is an uncommon issue but some players have reported it. Chances are that you might have noticed that there are no commentator or engine sounds. While the subtitles are still displayed, you cannot hear the commentator’s voice lines. The developers are working hard to fix this issue and it should be resolved in the next update.

Steering Wheel Not Detected

Since this is a racing game, many players will prefer playing it using a steering wheel. Unfortunately, some players have reported that their steering wheels are not being detected by the game. This forces you to either use a controller or a keyboard. For now, we do not know why this issue is happening but the fix seems to be to disconnect your keyboard. If that doesn’t work for you, we’ll have to wait and see what the devs say.

Split Timer Not Working Properly

During a race, the spit timer doesn’t always work properly. Sometimes, you might see it but other times, you won’t be able to see it anywhere. If you wish to see whether you improved your split time or not, it can be quite difficult since there is no timer to tell you.

Restricted Online Access

Surprisingly, this is an issue that many players are facing. When you want to play online, you’ll get an error that says something along the lines of “verify file integrity”. As the error states, you need to verify the game’s files’ integrity and then restart your PC. This will fix the issue but if it doesn’t you can wait and try again. Since the game is in early access, there are a few online issues right now.

  1. In PS F1-22 game it’s not possible to get the max speed. The speed bar (KM/U) is intermittent. It won’t get max speed.

  2. Playing online is terrible.

    50% of the times the game gets stuck on loading screens, you will get kicked out of lobbies.

    It just takes ages to finally enter a game.

  3. In my team career I get no interviews from Claire or rivalries. This is a pain as my R&D groups have low morale and missing acclaim points. Am Xbox series x

  4. The multi player career mode is a joke me and my friend try to start a career and it just come up with error codes and kicks you out mid race its ridiculous I fort warzone was bad so moved on to this and this is just as bad if not worse.. we havnt been able to finish a single race yet due to consistent error and kicking you out or crashing
