Need For Speed Rivals - TROTTLE NOT WORKING

[ Edited ]
34 Replies 12,041 Views edited 19-12-2013

I downloaded the latest need for speed game 2 days ago but when i get to the point of driving the car won't drive. I keep pressing R2 as the controls say that is the throttle but nothing happens. The R2 on both my controllers are working. I checked. Anyone else having this issue? Or should i download the whole 16G game again?

Happened to me too. You have to delete the game and redownload it and delete the patch. The patch is what causes the problem so when you redownload the game don't download the patch update, ONLY the game

Guys this is how the "acceleration bug" has been Fixed.

 

If you have started the game after the inital download (3gb) , let it download the complete game (17gb) it will work after that.

 

No need to delete any update or redownload, still if its not working delete the save file and start again after complete game gets downloaded (17gb).

I have tried this method and this seems to resolve the matter. Thank you.

 

This is unnacceptable for a premium launch title not to work. It speaks volumes for the lack of quality control and testing on the part of EA and worse still for the playstation store not withdrawing the title whilst the known problem is fixed. 

 

If you speak to Playstation they refer you to EA, considering the contract remains with Sony, and therefore they should be able to vet the quality of the product they sell, they dont bother, but nevertheless, £55 and a morning spent on the phone, seems to be the acceptable face of customer service. 

 

Perhaps my expectations are too high and I have the unrealistic demand that a game should be downloaded and working straight away, this is not a 69 pence app from the app store.

 

There will be a lot of disappointed children on Xmas day, and a lot of bemused parents that will have to go through this same hassle to get the game to actually work.

 

Lesson learned, thanks for the post!

I think thats a wee bit OTT  as inOMG I've got to wait for the game to FULLY download before playing it! I know sony have said you can start playing while a game is downloading so i can see your point, but it's not like the game is broken and wont work.

This is totally unacceptable.  I've tried everthing mentioned here which I should not have to do and the freaking car does not move.  $60 bucks down the drain???  I knew I shouldn't have gotten this when everything started going wrong trying to even get it downloaded in the first place becuase it wouldn't take my debit card number until the tenth time I entered it almost like a bad sign trying to warn me away from it.

 

What are we supposed to do and what do you mean exactly by change the language, on the console itself???

Last night I purchased and completely downloaded all 17gb's of this game.

 

Tried to play it today and i am having the same problem. Being my first PSN shop purchase i'm not happy and regretting not buying it on disk instead.

Anyways, how do I fix this? I dont know where to go to Delete the save data. I finally found the language change option and am trying it now, hopefuilly it works.

 

But if someone can please tell me , step by step, how to delete the save game data it would be greatly appreciated. As you guess I'm a complete noob, only had this console for 48hrs.

 

Cheers

Kev

Changing the language back and forth seems to have fixed my game,

Though it still would be handy to learn how to delete save game data for future reference :)

Thanks

I can not find where to change language in this game - nothing like that in settings. Please help with more detailed or step by step instructions how to fix this bug with throttle. 

 

Thanks!

To fix the game you need to quit the game, and change the Language in the PS4's settings panel, not in the game.

Go to Settings>Language>System Language

Then change it to another language, and change it back.

Hope this helps you :)
