    With all the damn money it takes to upgrade these cars you would think you guys could fix these issues faster or at least gives some breaks on buying gold!

    In IOS 11.1.2 still unplayable. Suggested fix with airplanemode  or 180degree turn are useless. Better come up with a fix pretty soon, and a compensation for lost races and goldcoins. The suggestion of using a different steeringmode is plain stupid, if you have logged many hours in a certain mode, you cannot switch to another mode and expect to drive at a similar level.

    I am very disappointed...

    I 100% agree with Jan-Kees! At level 431 you can’t expect me to switch to a different steering method. After investing almost 2200 hours playing this game and spending more real money to get game gold than I care to admit I think that Firemonkey should definitely compensate for this problem and fixing this should be priority #1!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This has definitely gone on for too long. The problem should have been fixed shortly after it was discovered. If the issue isn't resolved soon, some type of compensation of gold or cars given, I will be inclined to purchase Forza 7 for my Xbox and give up on Real Racing.

    I am encouraged by more player comments on this gyro issue.Gold farming at LeMans is very limited for quite some time now.I believe all IOS players are being denied the opportunity to earn gold.I started this game May 2017 and the game offered gold coin ads throughout the day.Why not bring that back?I would watch 20 gold coin ads a day for compensation on this gyro issue.EA or FM needs to do something for the players quickly.In my opinion.Most elite players have more than enough R$.What we dont have is a properly working game and gold earning opportunities.Console gaming is looking better all the time.

    THIS IS FIXED IN IOS 11.2 BETA 4. JOIN THE APPLE BETA PROGRAM AND DOWNLOAD THE LATEST BETA ITS ROCK SOLID. Don’t forget to backup your iPad  with encryption selected via iTunes first. https://beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram/

    And you said it was fixed with the Beta 3 version, so I would not view your statement as credible. Fire Monkeys need to answer for this disaster

    There are multiple mentions of an iOS beta that fixes this, but no-one explains how to get this update? I usually only get regular updates? I'm the meantime I can manage some races (I just take it as practice for those "steering is broken" challenges) but am finding faster cars and track impossible. If there's no compensation due this I'll be angry. Software needs to be tested regularly on all platforms, and checked on every update those platforms receive. If this isn't happening it's bad practice, and we're suffering for it.

    @Dave, as explained above, you have to sign up for Apple’s Beta Programme at beta.apple.com. I have now the latest beta version for iOS and can confirm it solved the issue. I didn’t try it extensively yet though. Be it as it may, Firemonkeys is not providing an adequate response for the issue.

    Yesterday  I upgraded to 11.2.0    ( not to be confused with 11.1.2  or any of the betas )     If the beta builds had the fix,  The fix DID NOT make it into the final gold build of  11.2.0     It is better,  but still broken.   I can now do  2 or 3 short events  after recalibrating each time any event that is 3 or 4 laps like a cup event the "steering Leak"  becomes so bad that the car is un- driveable.

     

    IT IS STILL NOT FIXED  in the Production release of 11.2.0  !!!!!!!!!

    @ted shaw. Stop spreading misinformation. iOS 11.2 still has not been released. It is not available for download from iTunes or within settings on the device.

    This is a snapshot of Apple's official support page for iOS (11/24/2017 11:15EST).

    Apple does not officially release an update to iOS without updating that page.

    All,

    IOS 11.2 is IOS Beta and it fixes the bug! I'm using it in iPad and it works.

    To install it, you have to joining the Apple Beta program (see it on https://beta.apple.com/  or https://beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram/ )

     

    1 - You have to agreed to Beta program

    2 - Confim the device you are going to install Beta (I'am using it only in the iPad, but not in the iPhone).

    3- Install the Beta IOS from (first back-uo the device, etc, etc before it) your you DEVICE..

    Just follow the link above, instructions...

    Good luck

    FM please inform about the gyroscopic issue ... being one week without news is not normal ...

    for me it also appeared only with IOS 11.1.2 ... no problem before that ... but till then i am unable to perform in any race and also lost lots of gold to upgrade Aston Martin car and not able to compete in weekly time trial which is highly prejudiciable ...

    really expecting FM & EA to inform regularly about the issue and to compensate IOS players in GOLD.

    Hoping to replay normally asap

    No. The 11.2 update did not fix the problem. It's even worse.

    Guys, Ladies... the 11.2 update is. Not. Released. Yet. (behind the beta). William and others, please be clear if you’re testing the Beta, or mistake the 11.1.2 update for the 11.2 version. Please don’t confuse the 11.1.2 with 11.2. We generally have seen reports that the 11.2 beta does indeed fix the issue. 

    Having said all of that, the Monkees’ silence is deafening. They need to make things right, big time. The game has gotten way too expensive to simply brush this stuff off. At the least, a gold buy-back for R$ (at a reasonable cost) should be an option. Or a month or so of double Fame rewards and free upgraded cars to match those that were lost or unwinable during the fiasco.

    As above the iOS 11.2 beta does fix the issue. But I have had to sign up for the beta program which should not be necessary to simply get the game to work properly. And when is iOS 11.2 going to be available for general release. It could be ages.

    Indeed we should not have to install a beta version of IOS ... especially that doing so exposes one to some other eventual unknown side effects ... we need a fix and quick ... precious racing days are passing by ...
