  2. - Engines overheating from your mistakes It would be good if leafs could get stuck on your bumper if you have driven thru a bush. High grass could also cause some issues if you drive thru a field. Snow could get stuck on the bumper too. These all would cause your engine to overheat and we should be able to "get out of the car" to clear them off against a small time penalty. - Photo mode It just needs to be in.

  6. No fog/haze/mist effect for performance reasons. Clear and realistic visuals must not be compromised, only add as much eye candy as you can without sacrificing that. High graphical fidelity with the looks ruined by an ugly and unrealistic haze effect is completely bass-ackwards and counter-productive. If photorealistic visuals require less high-res textures or high-poly assets then so be it, overall it'll look far better A proper FOV and seat position adjust like in sims such as AC. The seat position adjust is way too limited, and FOV changes in large steps rather than in degrees, and FO

  7. It appears the era of DR2 will come to a close once the Flat Out DLC is out, and so we begin to think about the next game in the series. No, not DiRT 5 - that's a different subject entirely, and I hope Codemasters learned the lesson from DiRT 4 and don't try to cross the two streams again. Push D5 in the 'fun, more arcadey' direction, and build on that. No, this is about DiRT Rally 3! From chatting on the DiRTy Discord server the past year or so, a few common topics have emerged regarding the strengths and weaknesses of DiRT Rally 2, so I thought I'd post this list here, to be kept update

  8. Ok, I found a solution for Windows 7. The problem is, that Windows 7 uses as standard secure protocol TLS 1.0 or SSL 2.0. I think, something was changed at the servers, that they don't accept these secure protocols anymore. There is a fix from Microsoft to set the default secure protocol: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3140245/update-to-enable-tls-1-1-and-tls-1-2-as-default-secure-protocols-in-wi In section "Easy fix" there is a file to download, which inserts two registry entries. After restart my F1 game used the new secure protocol and all works now.

  14. I think, some don't understand right. Before middle of the week the servers from codemasters accepted also the old protocols. Then they decided, not to accept them. In the client Windows 7 system nothing changed, there was no update. The error is, that the game uses the settings of Windows, which protocol it uses, in Windows 7 that is the old protocol. So for Windows 7 the multiplayer didn't work anymore. The right way would have been, first to do an update of the game, that it uses the new protocol and not the one, which is set as default in registry. Steam Client also uses the new,

  15. A more compelling and immersive career mode (offline if possible), properly tire and surface degradation simulation (or just skip the gimmick thing we now have), better tarmac physics (although the current model is way better then what we had in DR1, and fun enough for me), a way to reward those who don't use assists without taking the fun for those who play with them (or at least show what assist are being used in online timetables, more or less like the F1 series), random and variable weather, better UI and VR and telemetry support for console users offcourse... 😉

  19. I agree with all the points in the OP except the "more normal visuals". I'm pretty pleased with the way DR2 pops. The RX stages feel more normal and thus feel less entertaining to me. My number 1 all time pet peeve in DR2 is the way the interface obfuscates simple information so much. In particular you *very often* have to select something and wait for a whole loading screen just to get information, such as weeklies and monthlies. Even worse, there are many situations where you don't know if selecting something will take you to a service area, or to a starting line, and if it

  23. Me also OS: Windows 7, Area: Germany, Thuringia My game always uses the 94.75.196.16 for the connection, is it the right one (Server in Amsterdam, Lease Web)? Saw in one telegram the host address "f1s.codemasters.com" and my DNS translates this to 94.75.196.16. I want to exclude, that it is a DNS problem and connections go to a wrong server. Connections always looked equal: Client did a request with protocol TLSv1, got the answer "Error Protocol version" from server. Then client tried a new connection with protocol SSLv3, got answer "Error Handshake Failure" from server. Which is the

  24. TL;DR: Yes and Yes. 1. Revs up on launch not only preloads your Turbo, but any engine delivers different torque at different revs and you want to launch with maximum torque. Now most times the rev of max-torque is also close to max-rev, so maximum revs are definitely better than idle rev. But even better would be the max torque rev for that car. Which is most times around 80% rev. (Or where the green shifitng lights in cockpit go on) 2. For Turbo pressure yes, For World Record Runs as well. To keep maximum control I sometimes lift during a jump, so the wheels touch down with a speed

  27. Hello, I am a player from China, first of all thank you for making such a great game. But although I like your game very much, neither I nor my Chinese and Japanese friends can fully enjoy the game. Because we have to play in English, and our English is not that good. I wonder if multilingual support is in your future plans? I hope your team can provide more language support for games in the future.

  29. Not sure. It seems to me to indicate the client is waiting for data from the server (host) and timing out. So that really doesn't shed much new light other than why SSLv3 is being used instead of TLSv1 (but that looks like some kind of fallback procedure from the TLSv1 failure).  Problem now still exists since 4 days without repairing itself. I posted this Wireshark report only to prove, that it is not a problem of the users. You can see, that the client (192.168.x.x) starts a TCP connection (SYN), the server answers (SYN, ACK) and the clients confirms (ACK). That's the usual 3

  30. I know this isn’t really the thread for it, but I’ll add my 2p that the fog/smoke in Finland is on another level and I really wish there were a way to address the ‘clear, daytime’ conditions. In fact, my #1 hope for any future patch/improvement. Wales it’s there but it’s not as intrusive. From the screenshots it seems like Scotland will be similar to Wales, although if there were any chance to dial back textures a little to improve ‘clear’ conditions, I’d snap your hands off.

  32. The "mist" is an undesired effect. Looks awful and nothing at all like reality. The mist isn't just at longer draw distances, in some places it appears like 10-20m from your car. Or 100m from your car which is not a long draw distance in 2020. In some places you can't see the road because of this "mist". Again at a very short draw distance. On dusk or sunset you can see pretty far, no mist. Then in daytime you can't see squat. REALLY does not add up.

  36. The calibration tool doesnt need a powerful computer to work, and you may need the calibration tool if you bought that ricmotech mod. Neither should be needed though, it really is just a case of practice. As said before, the th8a i use is not modded, running default factory calibration. The issue your probably facing, is changing the gear before you have the clutch depressed fully. I assume your using a clutch pedal, so you just need to make sure its pressed fully before you move the gear lever. This js why I suggested slowing down and concentrating on just the act of shifting. Never drive any

  38. I’m yet to see a valid argument for why this logic holds any truth. Some, not necessarily all, of us bought game A. Game B comes out later on and some of the content from A is made available in B. We purchased said content in game A therefore we have paid for it forever more and we demand it is free. With respect, you nor I know how much time and resource goes into the refresh of the DR stages into DR2.0 so how can we comment on how much it should cost? There is an easy way to make your feelings known on the cost of the DLC - don’t buy it.

  41. I'll be honest, I liked the drip fed DLC. It wasn't like it was painfully spread out, it was only 2 weeks between content drops right? I can understand wanting all content day 1 of DLC, but doing it the slow way definitely helped keep people coming back as well as helped stir up media attention during each release. That and it gave me a chance to actually drive some of the cars I would normally just leave in the garage. Just my 2 cents though --- Let's get to what I really want to see in DR3 or future titles though, and something I haven't seen discussed nearly enough, a proper drive

  42. For me personally the most important thing would be a deep career mode with - create a team - progression through car classes, e.g. junior => R2 => R5 etc. with historic rally invitational events - hire engineers, staff, additional drivers - a customizable difficulty level (like the slider in the F1 games)

  44. No I don't agree that CM can mandate Windows changes. But it could have been picked up if they test on W7 (I'm guessing they don't as DX12 is lead and DX11 is compatible). Everyone on W7 is holding out for, what exactly? OK so I've re read the post threads and it's not so clear cut. Error 1008:H can be caused by NAT settings (way more frequent than this specific PC fix) and it muddies the water by having XBox users post about the error. Most of the Steam users have not specified if they use W7 or W10. Other than sharing the moniker 'Windows' W7 and the current W10 are pretty far

  45. If so, anybody at Codemastes decided to make it a problem. That would be not funny, because all the Win 7 Users bought the Game with the Promise of full compatibility with Win 7. So it have to work completely with Win 7 within its Lifespan (until the Release of F1 2020). @FrankThe599th You're my man. It works! So there is just the Question: Why did nobody from Codemasters told us about that?
