    • Jacky D has clearly tweaked (using Game Guardian or similar software) the car parameters and/or found a massive cut and bypassed the off-track FAIL code.

      It will only affect your rewards if you were bottom person in your group and his time has pushed you down to the next group.

      That said, there could be (and probably are) quite a few other players using tweaks who aren’t so obvious about it ... they could also be affecting your rewards if you were/are near the group boundary.

    • sometimes these obvious cheats get removed

    • Unfortunately the non-obvious ones don't...they removed the cheater from Suzuka Veneno last week so this clown should get booted too

    • HE NEEDS TO BE BOOTED AND PERMA-BANNED

    • Clearly something is not right. Even using GG to change grip, stopping and acceleration-that lap time is somehwat impossible. It'll be removed soon enough.

      Can anyone race his ghost?

      Problem is cheats are laying back and finish on the basis of what time they need to beat(rampant in WTTT)

      (applies in OMP more than ever now)

    • I wonder how many use tweaks and bypass off-track fail code or whatever while keeping low profile and staying permanently in B '(A' racers are traceable by ghosting).

      I tried to call up his ghost, but it didn‘t show ... maybe it disappeared so quickly into the distance that I missed it ;-)

      I also think there is more going on than tweaking vehicle stats. At an average speed of 849 km/h needed to set that time, even if the car had such ridiculous stats I think it would be physically impossible for a human to drive it so fast accurately round the track. I suspect, also due to the apparent lack of a ghost, that the time wasn‘t driven at all but somehow inputted to the database.

      I agree. I tried racing his ghost too. I didn't see anything. Somehow, I think he found a way to input info without actually running. Either that, or he found a way to run a lap at Richmond, and have it applied to Silverstone. 

      Hulk, is it possible to change the names of the tracks in the game, so it applies times to WTTT? Or something like that?

    • He's gone. A bit surprisng to me because the Suzuka cheater wasn't removed until mid-week.

    • People also change track files. Most likely this person has altered the track file names and put Brands Hatch or something of that nature into this file.

      That's what I thought, but wasn't sure if it was possible. 

      Thanks

      Honestly I do not know. The user may have done what has been suggested. Looks like a Brands Hatch lap time with a car-data- hack applied.(Im sure Ive run a sub 23 at brands with 'tweaks')

      EA/FM's inaction is only going to continue to compound cheating to a point where the cheating will become so out of control, that no measure will work and people will possibly leave the game in droves.

      Group A racers could also be cheating, they probably follow some ghost to be close to a reasonable performance and nobody notices the tweak.

      Lol I need at least something/ somebody to trust or suport my idealistic faith in fair play, at least in FL bc RL's rotten

      Consider this. WTTT results are displayed. It gives a "cheat" the knowledge of exactly what time they need to beat and can pretty much select their own elapsed time for any lap on any track.

      I am speaking from the perspective of an admitted cheat

      Seriously, look at the difference between fastest and 2nd or 3rd fastest. It's not a matter of 00.1 or even 0.10.

      If you or anyone post a lap time, I guarentee you that a cheat can decide within half a second or so how much they will better your times by

    • I have checked some "top players'ghosts" and I noticed they stay behind on porpouse at the beginning and suddenly they get at the from easily, tweaked specs?

      That time could be ahieved easily without car hacking at Richmond. I thought of this, because last year there was a discussion about someone who had set an obviously low time in WTTT. That person responded saying when they ran the TT for that week, the wrong track came up. He swore he didn't hack and reported it to FM. But if it can happen by accident, someone should be able to make it happen at will.

    • well, changing the track would be a good explanation for the lack of a ghost!
