GT Sport Demo - Acceleration Problems

Has anyone else found problems with acceleration in their Beta/Demo?

 

Whenever I start a race, it seems I can never get out of 3rd/4th gear in any car? I tried it in Automatic and Manual. In Manual I change change up gears fine, but the car is so slow. I've tried on beginner, intermediate and expert with and without assists, but it seems to make no difference. I watched some streams on twitch and videos on YouTube and it seems their cars are accelerating without issue.

 

Any ideas?

Running on Standard PS4, with standard DS4 controller.

Cheers for responses so far. I have tried both my controllers. Neither of which I have issues with on other games. I've also tested with using Triggers or X and Square. Uploaded a couple of videos to youtube:

The second one probably shows it better about half way through, coming out of the corner.

Cheers

Yes I had this problem I changed the controls to use x as accelerate and it's fine. It appears to only register the right control stick as being half pressed down, if you look at the power meter on screen just to the right of the gear number it never gets above the half way line

This happened to me, I just restart the game or switch off traction control if it happens mid race.

 

Its when you are at full acceleration but the game thinks you are losing traction so the traction control kicks it when its not needed.

Yeh, that's a weird one.

It's certainly not allowing you full throttle, and traction control is activating in places it simply shouldn't.

 

I see you mentioned swapping buttons for the throttle, so I guess that probably crosses out some sort of button configuration clash with TC.

Have you tried making sure TC is set to Off?

Have you tried clearing the cache?

Or maybe testing with the controller cable plugged in.

I have this problem with one of my controllers, the other works fine, It is nothing to do with TC as I have that off most of the time.

when I changed the controller layout I was able to get full throttle but it makes it much more difficult to race.

Try pressing the trigger right near the top almost like you are pressing R1 at the same time and with quite a bit of force.

Thanks everyone for your responses so far. I've got it working now, but it still doesn't really make sense.

 

I'd tried both my controllers and different button layouts, to no avail. I had previously cleared the game data and cache to no avail. However, I decided to delete the demo completely and re-download it. Upon doing so, I had the same initial problem with triggers, but the second time around changing the configuration so accelerate was mapped to X worked. I could get full power. I then tried my second controller again and it seems to be working fine now using the triggers. 

 

So all in all, I'm pleased to have got it working. Enjoyed the hour or so I've had with it.

 

I retested my 'Non-working' controller on Project Cars, Trackmania, Driveclub, all work fine so it still doesn't make sense why GT doesn't like it. 

 

Thanks again!!!

I have the same problem on my controllers with the triggers. Very strange problem because when I first played the demo the throttle indicator was fine and there was no problem, but after the first crash of the servers the problem appeared and there's no solution for now..

My controllers does the same thing even in fully released version! 

I tried both controllers too and it gave only half of the gas with R2 button but with X button it gave full throttle. 

My both controllers are in good condition so i dont think that is the problem.

Maybe the game was coded to newer controller and has a difference to older controller?

I have same issue.

Looks like it's not the controllers. Works fine in other car games like Project Cars ...

Might be your controller. From experience my R2 button is shot and even when held down all the way I'm super slow. I really have to squeeze R2 to get it up to speed or just switch controllers lol

There seems to be an issue with the R2 acceleration.

It's nothing wrong with the controller, tested in other car games, same settings and R2 is working based on the pressure you apply.

In GT Sport, even if you apply full pressure the game will go only half way.

This needs to be fixed asap.
