  1. As we can't be the WRC game of modern times, let's be the inofficial 1997-2006 WRC game, the golden years of the WRC regulations! Flesh those classes out with Hyundai Accents, Octavias, Seat Cordobas, Suzuki SX4(LOL) and Citroen Xsaras. Let's get ******* TOYOTA onboard now as well, so many classic cars there. And Volvos. Lots of Volvos.

  2. Just curious if the previous reports about the bridge FPS drop were enough to get a bug fix in the works? I saw the guy’s video about it where he shows there’s a frame drop at the bridge seam, but it’s actually much worse on an older machine than he mentions—going down to 20 or under for me and almost invariably causing me to wreck if I try and take the turn after at full speed. Thanks!

  3. Yeah were not allowed to travel for easter because of the Covid19 lockdown but she being in the defense forces makes her exempt from that. The gist of that is that since shes been on active duty for 2 weeks (ie living at the RAAF base and not going home) that they deserve the opportunity to see family wherever they may be. Funny story, this morning I did my morning beach walk as normal, same guys as normal out fishing/crabbing, till today they have never said anything but good morning by way of greeting and have really ignored me. Anyway I'm walking while my missus was running and

  4. Nothing special. A spin on ss2 and a blown tyre on the end of ss6. That was strange, nothing hit but just before a corner it went of the rim. So I spun. Facing the wrong direction the co said 'I think there is something wrong with the car'.... yup I noticed 😀

  5. More R-GT online events would be nice. It's almost nonexistent in online events despite being a vanilla class. Why? Those are awesome cars too. H1, H2, R2, R5 have events every week but R-GT events are really rare

  6. H1 class, add cars like escort mk1, saab 96 and the beetle H2 class, make 1 class with a mixture of fwd and rwd cars (we don't have that right now) F2 class, add more cars, like Megane and Nissan Sunny N4 class, skip this one it doesn't add to the experience RX add a retro class, if you add the cars to H1 and H2 class like I propose you have the models already, maybe add a Porsche and Lancia Stratos as they were iconic rx cars in that time period

  7. Alright, this is my kind of topic ! 😄 I want to start by saying the car selection in DR2 is superb and, in a perfect world, every car present in DR2 would get put back in a potential DR3. I like every single one of them, I'm very glad for the great variety and I wish it would just expand. As much as I love grassroots rally car builds, I think DR's car selection is strong because each car is authentic and homologated in the real world (yes, there's a slight stretch with R-GT's but the Mustang, Camaro and BMW would fit the class is anyone wanted to actually rally them, there has been

  8. I would love to see these; (Codies should also get rid of that Escort's ugly double light front grill) BMW e36 M3 would be the best of those IMO. Those are totally bonkers and actually some of those M3's tops higher top speeds here than WRC cars does.

  9. For those who want to fiddle around with the dlc liveries, i updated my website. You can now find all cars from the base game and all dlc cars with the corresponding abbreviations. This way it is a bit easier to find the correct .nefs file in the DiRT Rally 2.0/cars folder that belongs to a full size car name that you can see in the car menu in the game. Scroll down to the Car File Names section http://www.rallygamer.com/dirtrally2/tools/texture-design-tools.php In case you need a tool or a tutorial for creating liveries yourself then the same page provides it for you. Have fun,

  11. Thanks for the info. I was just going by the number of bars in durability shown in the game. Hards have all 3, mediums have 2, softs and wets have 1. Also, I was kinda roleplaying with this. But if there's no rule against going with whatever works, then I'll downsize my tires from here on 🙂 Ahem. I only barely kissed the walls twice. Unless you consider ALL my driving 1 big mistake start-to-finish, with which I'd agree 😄

  17. In this case of Spain, if you know how softs on wet handle, first 3 stages would've been on softs (i was before game removed my spare...) and then rest on wets, since they should have some boost on wet roads compared to any dry tires. The rule with Softs in general is Mostly easy 2 Longs + 1 Short, sometimes even 3 longs, depending on surface, which i think is easily possible on Tarmac. I suspect wets last longer, but only if it is all wet roads, than softs on dry roads. But yea, i lost the message i saw, but apparently the softs have longer life than originally planned due to some

  18. Finally I did rally with no big mistakes. A bit of tyre gamble for first loop as I chose softs and tried to push on first two stages to gain some time before going to SS3. And I had to be really careful as there was almost no grip. Just before the finish I had to reverse after bit too late braking. The rest went smooth so I am happy to finish first. Big shame that I could not start in first two rallies as they are my favourite locations. It was good rally and we'll see what Monte will bring 😉

  22. I used wets. Also on the first leg with 2 dry stages. The tyres on that first leg were gone but on the second leg last stage they still had decent grip.

  23. Thanks for the input/suggestions so far, and don't worry about class designations, we'll leave that to CM, we just need to name cars we want, and want to keep, in order for CM to see what our wishlist is 🙂 The current expanded DR2.0 roster really is great, as others have said, there are very few that i'd want to see lost, but i hope the fat can be trimmed to allow us even more cars in the game, remember licensing costs, so we'll be with DLC again for some cars, like we were for DR2.0. Can't wait to see people complaining the cars were in previous games 😄 Only so many cars exist 😉

  24. aren't the bonus events only for people who own that specific DLC? I thought it was the Promo events that allow people to try out locations they don't own?

  25. @gleylancer571 I didn't touched the monthlies since summer, except a few exceptions to test if the car statistics bug ist still present. Can't do them, it just annoys me too much. I thought of making a bug report again, but they didn't fixed it the first few attempts, so I gave up.

  26. I could make a list with 100 cars that need to be added but here some important ones. Many cars from finnish, estonian, czech championship would be great (Like the ones listed above or that i link). Many have some bigger history. Here is a small list i made. F2 (Rest the missing 24 cars like Clio Maxi,xsara) S1600 (clio, c2, punto, corsa...) S2000 Group R Group 2: Chrysler Sunbeam Lotus group 2 Skoda 130 RS Group 2 Datsun Violet 710 Group 2 Saab 96 V4 group 2 BMW 2002 Ti group 2 Trabant P601 group 2 Volvo 142S group 2 Group 4: FSO Polonez

  27. I think the idea of adding a H1 RWD is great. Would love to see a Volvo 240 or 142. ^^ Edit: Look at these things

  28. No, no you don't have fictional cars in DR2 - you may have odd cars that aren't specifically homologated for rally, but they're all real cars. These are not fantasy car games, they're real cars and real rally, so i don't think it makes any sense to put in fictional cars, it doesn't fit. Either way, this is a cars for DR3 thread, let's stick to cars that exist for this one please 🙂

  29. A few thoughts on new classes/manufacturers. Tried to avoid listing every rally car ever, debatable if I succeeded H1(RWD) Would love for a Lotus Cortina to be added. And the Mk1 Escort, though perhaps that should be H2. Other possible cars:Hillman Imp, Renault 8 S1600 Rally Feel like this would bridge the gap between R2 and F2 well. Also potentially a very well balanced class like R5, a number of similar performance cars in S1600. Group N/NR4 Really like driving these cars, unfortunately only Subaru/Mitsi competing for a long time. Maybe adding some older cars could generate so

  32. nah, the GOTY edition is just the base game with a pass for all the DLC. if you buy the disc version it comes with a code that allows you to download it. it doesn't make the DLC part of the base game. [whispers] the GOTY edition is just a repackaged SuperDeluxe Edition, which came out back in September.

  33. @PJTierney Been having an issues on Scotland, the same stage (Old Butterstone Muir) that others are complaining about in this thread (and other places on the forums). Its actually quite an issue, and the effect of it happening is amplified while driving at speed over it. When the FPS drop kicks in, it lasts from the bridge to the next corner entry just beyond it. In VR this is absolutly awful, and it causes motion sickness due to the stuttering and hitching that happens. The fps drop happens at only one specific point on the bridge, but it is far less noticable when playing on a monitor.

  34. (PC) South Morningside over small bridge - massive slowdown & on all variants that cross that bridge, fps shoots back up once crossed. Does not do it in the replay which is odd. Please fix.

  37. Neither of those games are good simulators though. iRacing in particular is getting a lot of air time right now because drivers can't actually race so they're literally broadcasting iRacing instead, and the drivers are all talking **** about it and how poorly it drives. ACC just got a new tire model, yet again, that's now on par with Forza so you might not just randomly spin any time you touch a curb. Ha! Jokes on you! DR2 doesn't have grass surfaces! You're comparing apples to papayas here. Pretty sure they've said before that it's based on the car model they actua
