  • Hey Dave, 

    This is Caitlin from EA Playtesting -- we run RR3 playtests and other related playtesting events. How it works is you come into a studio, play some games, give feedback on your experience then get cool rewards before you head home! We're looking for more RR3 fans to give feedback and thought some folks here would be interested. Please reach out to me at cpollard@ea.com so we can chat :) 

    You can check us out at: https://www.ea.com/playtesting

    I would like to come up with this kind of statement once in a while.

    • Sadly, this is off a tshirt advert on my facebook but I felt it summed up how I felt a few weeks ago. Happily things have calmed down a bit now.

  • Hi!

    I have one suspicion about this situation, but it's have back story. When i lost 50 GC first time (i don't know the reason, but symptom was same - no TT window), i decided to focus on getting it next time for sure. So, i made backup in iTunes before Time Trial end and it's worked. At the same time inside my team was discovered... well... since it's open channel, let's call it "WTTT gold loop". Useing it i recovered my lost 50 GC first time.

    Now, when i thinking about it... May system think today, that i am already received reward, but week ago? is it even possible?

    Since your are iT specialist, maybe your may confirm or overturn this suspicion.

    P.S. Testing it and confirming may take 2 weeks.

  • Hi Dave,

    There seems to be a problem with the historical data/edits in December/November 2016, specifically ...

    • There is no entry for the week ending 12-Dec-2016.
    • For a couple of earlier entries there are entries for Richmond and Nurburgring which don't fully correspond with the previous/next weeks.

    I know the WTTT was offline for a while so maybe this is something to do with that but it still doesn't fully add up.

    Do you have your WTTT results history for all of December/November 2016?

    Thanks,

    Nick

  • Not sure where to go with my question...I picked you this time.

    I updated Project Impulse (v5.5.0) on Sept. 10th with updates for v5.5.0 - quotes, R$, fame, etc. In game, after mention of the Maserati Granturismo MC Stradale, we are told that we will also be competing against it's limited race-spec edition. However, after running 5.6 I went to the 2nd page of the results page and found that all three of the opponents were driving the regular edition. My update removed the Limited edition as an opponent vehicle as well as added 5.6 to the list of races against the regular edition.

    Today (11th), User:DecadeHansen changed it back. Although the words indicate that we race the limited edition, I do have evidence that we don't actually face off against it. First question - can I 'undo' her change from the history menu without undoing all changes that were done AFTER that change? Second - is there a way to stop other users from changing this section, since the game text is very misleading and this event will be open for another month.

    BTW - I don't fault DecadeHansen and am not upset, but I did keep my screenshot figuring this would happen.

    Thanks, Brad

    • Firstly, I don't know anyway to selectively undo updates. I think you can only roll back the updates one by one. I wouldn't recommend this unless you are sure they all need undoing. In this case it would be much simpler just to reapply your change. There is no way to lock sections of the wiki, we can only lock entire pages.

      My suggestion would be to ask this question on the Project Impulse (v5.5.0) page to see if everyone is getting the standard edition and not the limited edition. If everyone says it is the standard edition then I'd just reapply your update. If one person gets a limited edition then I would suggest leaving it as it is.

  • Hi Dave,

    As I was editing the Events tables for all of the new series it occurred to me that neither of us take into account the race rewards when calculating the series reward used to determine whether or not the series is profitable.

    Apart from variable values (e.g. Endurance races) it should be easy enough to do.

    Adding the R$ is simple though I think the CRB should be ignored as it depends on how well the player has driven!

    Converting the Fame to Gold is slightly more tricky but could be calculated on an approximate ratio of 6500 Fame points per Gold coin.

    What do you tbink?

    • That's odd, for me the default is around 5.8 to 6.2 miles!

      How does (an average) distance convert to the reward/lap figures shown on the Wiki ... by the way, I always found it odd that the rewards are shown per lap as they're more dependent on on-track mileage.

      I'll hav a look into it and get back to you.

    • Hi Dave.

      Ok, I had my first stab at what we discussed which involved a few other changes/improvements ...

      • I added functions to the Events sheet to calculate the R$-to-Fame ratio for each event, the average for all entries and a check for the number of entries which fall within 20% of the average (94%).
      • I added functions to the Upgrades sheet to calculate the R$-to-Gold ratio for each upgrade, the average for all entries which can be purchased for both R$ and Gold and a check for the number of entries which fall within 20% of the average (71%).
      • I added a global parameters file to my spreadsheet and a function to retrieve the specified parameter(s) or all of them AND included the above as parameters.
      • I changed the Wiki Strategy creation script to allow for the above.

      This gave me a R$-to-Fame ratio of 5.1 and a R$-to-Gold ratio of 3660 which equates to about 720 Fame points per Gold coin ... which seems rather generous i.e. wrong!

      I then used those values to convert the event Fame rewards to Gold and added them to the Series Gold rewards ... I also added the event R$ (but not the CRB) rewards.

      I've just re-run the Wiki Strategy creation script and created a new page ... it actually makes quite a difference ...

      I double-checked my calculations, they look correct!

      I haven't (yet) allowed for non-specific rewards e.g. Endurance races.

      Let me know what you think.

      Cheers,

      Nick

      P.S. Having just re-read this post, I think the calculated ratio is wrong insomuch as it doesn't marry up with the Gold rewarded when levelling up which seems to be more like 5,000 Fame points per Gold coin! Let me know what you think.

  • As a next step in our conversation in past.

    Is it possible to make on forum so called "Sticky" threads? Threads which always will be on top. Like how to get more gold or WTTT weekly threads.

    What do your think about it?

  • What job do you do? (Or did, if you're retired.) I suppose something related to coding?

    Also, do you know anything about the Gold Glitch that Michael told? I would love to get some more gold?

    • I'm a Enterprise / Solution Architect these days. I used to code for a living but now only really do it for fun. These days they only let me design solutions, they don't let me build them anymore.

      I'm afraid we don't encourage talking about glitches on the wiki. I'd love to help but I can't.
