Also - great list. Sounds like Senor Nascar's advice went a long way

I wonder how long it will take to fix these issues. I know its not going to happen overnight would just like a little insight on how long they expect it to take on each thing listed.
 
# 3 seasprite @ 03/31/11 02:27 PM
If they do indeed fix these issues then I would say they would have an excellent product. The question is, "will the community have the patience to wait a couple of months for this to happen?" I would imagine that fixing these issues will take a while. I would be ok waiting a couple of months as long as they fix it.
 
# 4 dmanzano @ 03/31/11 03:46 PM
If they fix everything that's in his post, I might buy the game then.

For now, MLB, GT5 and Shift2 will keep me busy (maybe too busy lol)

Well they will lose sales for sure.. However, There are alot of people who didn't purchase because of the issues... Maybe some of them will purchase after they get wind of some of these fixes... Good start IMO

I doubt it will take two months for the next patch, but I would certainly be okay waiting that long for it if it delivers 100% while not causing new problems to the code.

In the meantime, I can enjoy doing some short races w/caution and damage just switched off to get some track time and get used to running on Legend. Have you tried Infineon with no assists?? LOL

# 11 acreyman @ 03/31/11 09:27 PM
I will get the game after this stuff is ironed out.....treating it no different than when I buy madden. I like to wait for the patches to hit otherwise it will just bug me.
 
# 12 DrunkenCat @ 03/31/11 09:40 PM
Yep. I'm wait and see on everything now. The list of things to fix make me glad once again.

Why is f-i-x showing up as ***?
 
# 14 Matty86 @ 04/01/11 01:47 AM
They need to *** it so that when a caution comes out you race to the line. I'd love to be able to try and pick a spot and make it through a wreck that happens in front of me, but it usually goes to the automatic caution lap too quickly.
 
# 15 Kingsly9 @ 04/01/11 01:48 AM
This game is an amazing game and with these patches it will no doubt be the best NASCAR console game ever released.
 
# 16 jayman2411 @ 04/01/11 06:45 AM

The dancing *** is hilarious...
Even with the issues, I dont see how the crap of a game Nascar 09 could ever be considered better than NTG2011.
The driving model on NTG11 is the best Ive ever played on a console.
NTG2011 isnt rich on features but the foundation is there for a great future and a very fun Nascar racing game. Im having a blast playing it with my G27 wheel!

Im glad they are continuing communi***ion with the community and at least pointing out issues that the players are having. Hopefully theyll stick to there word and be able to *** most if not all the issues.

I hope they can *** some of the paint booth glitches. Its really hard to pinpoint the cause of them as its so random.
Ive only been able to make one logo.(Gatorade G) using all primitive shapes and have it stay in tact when I place it on the car. Ive made a Jordan logo and the Gatorade bottle lightning bolt and they look great in the decal editor but all the pieces are misplaced when I go to apply the decal. There is nothing more frustrating than spending 20 minutes making something only for it to corrupt when finished and still show intact in the decal lists.

@Matty86: This does not need to be ***ed nor will it be changed. NASCAR removed the racing back to the line under yellow a few years back. It's not a part of the rules anymore so they won't add it to this game. If you want to race through a wreck through to pick up spots just turn off the yellow flag completely.

@Block-O: I believe this is going to be added when they release the free DLC later on. If someone can confirm or can correct this, please do.

I just want to say that this game has been out for 3 days and the company seems to genuinely be listening to the fans and players and working not only hard, but quickly, to *** issues. I think if all companies paid this much attention and acted this quickly to genuine concerns from the gamers who actually play these games, then we would have a lot more high quality games that we would commit to and become loyal fans of.
