Is there anyone still at it?

    After upgrading my PC, I have yet to install D4 and I'm not sure I will at this point. I'll most likely use DR for the time being and see if any improvements are made to D4. I will probably look to PC2 for it's Rx content provided the player reviews are positive overall.

    I put it away until clubs come in to avoid coming into clubs with the burnout I had after running DR events for two years. I want to be excited to run rally championships, and a break has gotten me back there. :smile:

    Still playing it, but paused for now while I'm building a new gaming PC. Playing it at 900p40ish was fine until the prospect of 1080p60 started getting closer. D4 will be the first thing I re-install.

    I've been playing some old classic games the last few weeks. Just beat kotor on the xbox. Started playing again the last few days and have to get back into it as I'm definitely lacking speed after the break but I still enjoy the game.

    Yeah, I decided to play all the Need for Speed games I skipped after giving up on the series after Underground 2 (I liked the original games and wasn't big on the tuner direction). So I bought Most Wanted, Carbon, ProStreet, Undercover, The Run, and Rivals (I played Hot Pursuit 2010 when it came out, and had tried Most Wanted 2012 and Shift 2). And Most Wanted is pretty good! I should have played it 12 years ago!

    I remember absolutely loving NFS 3, which has since almost disappeared entirely, which makes me sad. I had Carbon on the Xbox and wasn't very impressed with it, but the tuning was kind of neat.

    I left it after only 2 weeks of gamplay because the game is boring.
    Now i've just pressed the start button again since we're able to make mods (skins at least), to check my creations . That's all

    After having lost the triple crown rally part with a mere 1 point difference on my first attempt thanks to the, well, slightly unbalanced AI, which manages to set absolutely mental times on the 'highway' stages in Sweden, I'm on my second try right now, tackling the Michigan forest with a Subi N4 this time round.

    Having used an R5 Fiesta for the first attempt and not driven an N4 car for a while, I'm now however facing quite severe levels of damage after each stage despite driving absolutely flawless and not even pushing it to the max. Back in the service area, I always find myself surprised by the amount of damage that occurred apparently out of nowhere, suffering from a broken suspension, a critically damaged clutch, worn-out brakes and an overheated engine yet after three stages, which, as said before, were all driven cleanly. Sthg tells me that can't be normal?

    The Subi is of course all fitted with A parts, everything has been upgraded in the team facility section, and all four engineers are also A grade with appropriate specialisation depending on the car. Engineer repairing capability thus is through the roof, yet fixing the car takes ages as most parts are severly or even critically damaged...

    My brothers dog whom was visiting decided to chew my wheels usb wire.. So looks like im out of action for a fair while sadly :(. Not going to rush to buy a new wheel unless i see something really special popup on sim racing or Dirt 4 got double content from DLC.

    Miss dirt 4 but this game badly needs atleast 3 more new locations/surface types. Aswell as a few new sections for hairpins on existing locations.

    Cut the cable open on both sides of the chewed part and remove the damaged section, remove some of the coating on both intact sides, do the same for the colored wires inside, then connect colors accordingly. There, I just saved you some money (;
    Unfortunately you can't fix the rest of the problems yourself :D

    EDIT: unless I didn't get the sarcasm and this was a "my dog ate my homework"-type of excuse ;)

    Well I have done all the career events and got all my cars to "A". I am just working through the joyride challenges, then I will start playing with the stage generator properly.

    Just stepped by to look if Codemasters has given some feedback to the community,  but... 
    So Dirt 4 was at the current state for me a mistaken investment in money and time.

    I'm back in Dirt Rally but more time nowadays in Project Cars 2 and RaceRoom.

    Uninstalled the game yesterday. Played about 70h and really tried to like the game but I guess in the end it just wasn't for me. It was more frustrating than it was fun for me, and that's what counts. Wasn't really fan of that extra nonsense they did put in the game as well, all that pointless managing, buying this and that and whatnots. Not my thing, I just want to get in the car, tune it and rally. Simple as that.

    D4 not being what I expected it to be is no biggie though, I'm grateful to Codies for making Dirt Rally. But I did hope that D4 would be continuation of Dirt Rally even though the name kinda indicates that it's not. Hopefully they will make Dirt Rally 2 someday.

    I still plan to finish the career and hope clubs will arrive soon. Maybe this will rekindle some kind of enthusiasm.

    But right now I'm into Grand Prix Legends - after some 18-year-break. Out of curiosity I looked for mods and then tried to install it, as I still own the CD. Guess what, it works! It's still terribly difficult, but after umpteen blown engines and crashes I finally finished a race with the '67 sports cars in 4th place - on three wheels after losing first place in a last lap accident. Feels just like 1999.

    Damn, Grand Prix Legends, there is a blast from the past! Sort of related, I picked up one of those Raspberry Pi based retro gaming consoles a couple of weeks ago: best thing I have bought in a long time. It's not quite as good as having the proper cartridges (but I am running out of space for more of them!), but there are so many great games I had forgotten about on it! 

    Played a bit more D4 at the weekend. I have posted a time in all of the joyride challenges now: some of the latter ones are so tricky to get a gold in though!

    50 hours in Steam, playing F1 2017 at the moment and if I want some rallying I'll start up DiRT Rally. After playing DiRT Rally again, I realised how bad the force feedback is in DiRT 4 (many other things too). Not playing it in the near future unless Codemasters give us some information about upcoming changes.

    15 hours played in D4 so far. Somehow, I didn't get warm with the game. May give it a chance later on. What I really do appreciate in D4 is the effort of providing infinite stages. Actually, the courses within one country still bear high resemblance to each other. But in the bigger picture, Codies are pursuing a great strategy (as one of the most innovative studios in the racing genre). Guess the next rally games will be huge with more natural stages. What I cannot comment ist the car behaviour, as I'm no expert in this field.

    However, for now, I just prefer to stick with DR. Major reason are the brilliant stages. I would never want to miss the Monte-Carlo tracks. It is still so much fun to do online challenges. The only thing what annoys me is a bug which makes me start challenges way behind the official starting line occasionally..

    @dgeesi0 I haven't really felt the need to post here because I share opinions with a lot of folks and didn't want to repeat them, but you just posted an exact summation of how I feel about the game. Here's hoping we get some news soon, I feel bad having the game installed but not playing it.
