DiRT Rally World RX Multiplayer Update

Woa! It’s time for DiRT Rally’s v.0.7 update already, which this month introduces online competitive play to DiRT Rally. That’s right, you’ll now be able to head online and challenge your friends in officially licensed FIA World Rallycross events.


But wait there’s more! We’ve also added a stack of new features and changes including:

  • A new World RX track - Hell, Norway
  • New Rallycross drivers including, Liam Doran and Petter Solberg
  • Wet weather for all Rallycross tracks
  • Three new cars: DS3, MINI Countryman Rallycross and Subaru WRX STI
  • Brand new Wager Daily Event
  • Some new advanced gamepad options
  • Added a “Very Early” option for your Co-Driver calls
  • A frankly amazing set of Hints and Tips for you to read during loading screens
  • Removed the additional time penalty when the Off Track Reset Countdown expires and upped the limit on the timer
  • We’ll now show you your 'Fastest lap' onscreen for an entire Rallycross Event
  • Clutch Override which will give you the ability to use your clutch to override the automatic gearbox clutch

 

And that’s not all! On top of all that goodness above we’ve also made the following additions and changes to DiRT Rally.

  • *bleep bloop* new achievements
  • Added a toggle for ‘Clutch Override’, which allows you to override the automatic clutch (allowing for clutch kicking)
  • ‘Advanced gamepad options’ are now available for joysticks... Yup somebody out there is playing DiRT Rally with a joystick
  • Message added indicating if you’ve missed the entrance or exit of the joker lap.
  • Optimised all routes for Lydden Hill so it chugs less
  • Graphical Improvements to all stages on the Holjes Circuit as well as the routes for Powys, Wales and Pikes Peak
  • Those excessive gravel surface sounds have been toned down – which should also help with stuttering audio
  • Fixed an issue where the Community delta time splits were being incorrectly shown in the Pant Mawr stage from Wales
  • Light pods no longer show on day routes when using the bonnet / interior cameras on certain vehicles
  • Direct Input slider axis enumeration has been fixed which is a fancy way of saying this should solve issues with pedal bindings, most frequently the clutch
  • Rallycross friend leaderboards now only show the players fastest lap time
  • Abandoning a Rallycross Daily Event now uploads the stage maximum, rather than the time the game was paused... oops
  • Jump starting certain Rallycross tracks no longer results in the players lap counter refusing to increment when passing the start/finish line
  • Fix for the Founder liveries disappearing after the player resets their profile
  • Community delta times are now displayed correctly in the standings before the event begins
  • The Community delta times that were invalid on some tracks have now been reset
  • Crossing a reset line will now always result in you receiving a penalty
  • The Rallycross AI will now find the correct gear at the start of the race and not comically reverse
  • Joker laps will now register even when exiting the joker sector backwards... Because sometimes it’s fun to show off
  • The AI will now take the Joker lap in a Rallycross event less than 4 laps
  • The AI should no longer accidently take a Joker lap when switching paths after losing control.
  • Did you ever see that bug where the Rallycross AI would drive into a barrier, reverse, then drive into again? It was pretty funny but we thought we better fix it
  • Used your data to improve our AI across all Rallycross routes. They’ll now put up much more of a challenge
  • Just like every time we release an update there are a few things which we know won’t be perfect, don’t forget that DiRT Rally is in Early Access still and we need you to help us polish it.

We’re confident that everything should run smoothly and thank you to all our players who have been helping us test this latest update. So if you spot something that isn’t quite right or working as you expect be sure to swing by either the Codemasters Forums or Steam Forums to let us know.

As ever thank you for your support so far, we know we say this a lot but we really are grateful of all the feedback to date.

Next month we head to Finland for the fastest and most exciting update yet.

Don’t Cut. Be Brave.

    OH MY ****!!! 

    I've just stopped EVERYTHING in my day. 

    You're the best <3

    Awesome! Thank you very much.
    Downloading the update. Yeah!
  • AreyoubenAreyouben Member Petrol Head
    I am in a server now with 7 others and it says under status "in lobby". But no one seems to press ready up and I have been waiting for 10 minutes. Is the status indicator broken and are they actually on track or have I joined a tea party?
  • DidzisDidzis Member Team Principal
    Nice, did a run in Hell with easy AI (because I don't know the track yet), almost lapped them :D After that did a run in Lydden with Very Hard AI, they did seem tougher, but I did manage to get in front near the end. And my framerate never dropped below 60 (I didn't try to hit the infamous tire wall though)

    So disappointed. Where is multiplayer for Rally.
    You said multiplayer on your timeline. You didn't say multiplayer for rally cross only.
    So excited for absolutely nothing.
    Thanks heaps codemasters.
  • MrAskaniMrAskani Member New Car Smell
    Quite underwhelming really...when are we going to be able to MP actual proper rally events?? Staggered starts or with ghosts of friends starting simultaneously? That would be an update I'd be excited about. After all, who ever heard of a single car being the entirety of a rally event?
  • DytutDytut Member Champion
    you are aware that this was the RALLYCROSS multiplayer update, right?

    That trailer frankly **** me off that we aren't being given some kind of access to those camera tools. =P

    Anyway, here's a more mundane 'trailer' trying to make the best out of what we do have.

    The achievements are kinda easy to get. In the first session got 7 of the 8 PVP achievements :D But all in all it's fun :)

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry, I've just been waiting for this little update. Now I don't have to slow down to let my co-driver catch his breath!

    • Abandoning a Rallycross Daily Event now uploads the stage maximum, rather than the time the game was paused... oops 
    Hi @justbiglee - Has something like this been implemented for Rally and Hillclimb where in a league with Stage Restarts disabled, drivers now can't Alt+F4 to restart the stage, and instead they will be given a "maximum" time?  Thanks
    Fun, fair, and clean racing for all skill levels!
  • MyrvoldMyrvold Member Wheel Nut
    This was disappointing. There is no good way of using this for any leagues, it was unstable, laggy, and without proper scoringsystem.
    While the driving itself is fun, and finally being able to drive with friends are fun, it was a lot of hustle to get there, and it wasn't all what I hoped for. Great for 3-4 friends to hang out, but for a place with 60-100 people wanting to do a proper RX league, this was extremely disappointing.
