Random Freeplay Not Working
#1 Submitted: Fri, 08/07/2016 - 00:41

I've been meaning to raise this issue for a while. Whenever I go to play some Freeplay, the randomiser doesn't seem to work. Instead of random, it seems to be cycling through a completely predictable linear sequence. Weird. I jump in just wanting some general Carma fun and instead, without fail, this is what I get:

First Game is
Ped Chase
In The Rockies
With The Eagle

Second Game is
Checkpoint Stampede
In Arena: Ice Blast
With Snaky Bastard

Third Game is
Classic Carma
In Arena: Perimeter Patrol
With Blitzkrieger

etc.

Every time. This is exactly the sequence that I get whenever I quit the game and open it back up again. The random settings don't seem to be random. At the end of a long day when I open up Carmageddon wanting some mindless fun and hit play, it is a bit annoying "What? Ped Chase in the Rockies again? Give me something different!"

Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me?

Sounds like some randomization seed isn't being set. Well, let's wait to see if this is happening to other people too.

I've had the same thing happen on those very same levels. Only about 10 different races come around most of the time after starting while playing Classic Carma, but it'd probably be those very same results if the game mode was also random. The same cars will also come on the same levels.
