    Come on codies...its 2019. Who in their right mind allowed the ridiculous rain graphic to pass development. Its bad enough the headlights dont illuminate far enough in front of the car to push in the dark...then you add a sheet of white lines that looks like they are straight out of a sega genesis game from 1997 makes it impossible. Please for the love of god fix this.

    That is a fair point. However, is it not appropriate that they go first? Back when DR 1 was in EA and the devs were making video dev diaries, livestreams and generally getting involved you wouldn't have caught me whispering a single bad word about them - despite the jankyness in DR1 at EA launch. What I can't stand is this retreat to corporate animosity, with extremely selective community engagement - as and when it suits them. That is only made worse when those small pieces of engagement seems forced, trite or condescending.

    Have you guys considered reuniting the community beta testing team once again, to help speed up the game patching and testing? There's clearly an issue with bugs, which isn't normal, and it's been dragging for almost 2 months now. The reputation of the game has taken a big hit due to this troubled start and it could really use a re-launch, or a public statement addressing the current situation to tranquilize people both inside and outside this forum. It's important to earn the customers' trust once again, and the most sincere way to do that is to release a bold statement recognizing the current state of the game and reassuring that you are doing everything you can to get the game back where it should be. There's nothing to be ashamed of by doing that, it just shows integrity and consciousness and will provide positive results. Otherwise, I can only see sales tanking even harder as time goes on, and I don't think anyone wants that. We see what's happening here, because we are here, taking part in the discussion and trying to squeeze every bug and concern daily. But the general customer doesn't take part in this forum and has no idea of what's going on. Right now, the current image the general customer is getting is this: "The game has been out for two months and they still haven't been able to patch a sound bug as of v1.3." It's harsh but it's the reality, and word spreads faster from mouth to mouth. Last but not least, I'd also like to applaud all the people in here, doing their best to provide feedback and report bugs, with more or less anger (doesn't matter) and the availability of the devs taking part in this conversation. It just shows how engaged this community and this group is and to be honest I hope it keeps that way. Haven't seen a community so united towards a single game, the rally passion is big. PS: Hope @ChristinaMc's alright since she has been silent lately.

    Oh for heaven's sake @JesseDeya Calling the developer 'condescending' for simply responding with the line 'it is not simple' was not warranted. Yes he's terse, taciturn, whatever. That's the guy's nature with all his posts. He's a developer, not a 'community manager'. If it was Christina, I would fully agree with you. But these are coders, handling guys, etc. They have work to do, and come on to the boards of their own volition. If we are rude to them, they go away. Simple.

    I'm going to go against the mob mentality and say I have to agree with you in some respects. Whilst the game isn't right and still has a way to go, some of the things people are saying here have been worse than what you see on Fifa forums which are full of 12 year olds That's all fine and beaut, except the line of conversation @Jake Cushing weighed in on was neither about entitled priveledge, nor was it a 12 year old fifa forum. The full trails is below, with time stamps.... A reasonable question about a reasonable feature (that existed in the previous title). This is a pretty highly requested feature to that point Codemasters have said nothing about it. This was the somewhat terse response by one of the developers. Provides no information, no empathy for their customers who would like that feature, and no path forward. My cheeky reply. An answer with some substance, which is nice, but still doesn't explain why a system that was completely overhauled now lacks functionality of the version it replaced. Again, no empathy for customers who miss and would like that functionality returned. My courteous but unapologetic follow-up to developer @CMMcBabe's superficial response. And back to the quote at hand... to which I can only roll my eyes. How is not the job of Codemasters to talk to Codemasters customers about a Codemasters game on a Codemasters Community forum hosted on a Codemasters website? Am I taking crazy pills?

    Maybe they've improved a little in 1.3 patch. But there's still a lot of night, rain, wet ground in events. And I noticed that the game "chooses" rain and/or night when the track is bigger (to make my misery worse lol) I believe that rain, wet ground and night should be sporadic and rare in events, however they occupy more than 50% of the total. @Riggs @CMMcBabe

    The 'relationship' between a game developer and their customers is not a one way street. If you ask for empathy you should first show at least a minimum of empathy for all those involved in the game development, who also have to deal with the 'realities' of the their work and the entire industry.

    Then the guy needs to adjust his attitude. In my line of work I'm also the equivalent of 'the developer', I'm not in marketing, recruiting, PR, issue management, HR or reception. I still know how to be courteous, respectful and helpful to people - especially those that pay the bills. They don't come on the board of their own volition, these boards are at least one of the public facing interfaces between their employer and their employer's customers - when they represent here they represent Codemasters. WE don't have to be grateful, THEY have a responsibility to us - NOT the other way around. It would also be useful if the community manager was active in like, you know, the community.

    I think we ought to be pretty grateful these developers are responding on the boards and giving us information at all. It's not their job, and there has been a heck of a lot of entitlement mentality around the place.

    Same kind of people who just have an unnatural obsession with being more efficient and enjoy chasing a perfection they can never reach. I get how it can make a stage boring or old for people, but for me that really never happens. I can sit on a stage for 2 hours one night, and do it all again the next night having just as much fun. But I've been this way since I was 12 on a Gamecube playing 1080 Avalanche or GT back on my PS1, or even doing Sonic speed runs against my brother back on the Sega. I may attack the same corner 100 times, but I never will attack that corner and the previous/next one the exact same way that 100 times - every run is different from the last and squeezing out 100ths of a second gives a sweet satisfaction.

    it was said multiple times that its in the works.. Nobody is going to get it earlier by knowing the exact date when it drops. Also just because you didnt have any problems, It shouldnt be fixed or isnt a big fix then in your opinion ? Okay, imo FFB doesnt need a fix to urgent so if its imo not too urgent it isnt important ? FFB is beeing worked on. Not fixing other stuff will not solve that problem quicker. And do i need to understand why ya´ll rage all over the place and open 50 threads just to bash CM and this game ? I dont to be honest. Its just a big big waste of your time. And do you know how i can be optimistic here ? Because its a great freakin game in MY opinion and of many others.

    What a real piece of work you are, "this poll is not for you". Sure, two paying members and large community contributors are not to take your improperly designed poll because they want it to be a properly designed poll. Do it right or don't do it at all.

    Easy killer. Not everyone has $500 to spend on a new console to fix an issue that shouldn’t be present to begin with. If it plays on XB1 original or S, then it should be optimized accordingly for whatever version of the console you own. I own the X before you think I am just a bleeding heart...your post is harsh. The game is the issue, not the version of console. Period.

    -- PATCH v1.3 Bug List -- Based on v1.3's changelog and taking note of the fixes it brings, here's the updated bug list reported in the v1.2 thread, which represents all the bugs that still need fixing 1. The problem with dark stages and no visibility has been poorly resolved and now the cockpit of the car is completely dark and some stages over-exposed. HDR needs to be fixed for good, no matter how much time it takes. Headlights also have nearly no effect in dark zones (such as New Zealand forests, Australia forests and Monte Carlo's tunnel). Happens specially in Sunset/Dusk times. There are also cases where brightness goes totally dark in the surface and after exiting the forest area it comes back to its right brightness value. (https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/35657-dirt-rally-20-v12-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=411207 and https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/178-dirty-gossip-thread/?do=findComment&comment=409909 and https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/35657-dirt-rally-20-v12-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=415484 ) 2. Some cars' headlights lack proper glass texture opacity and some of them lack proper mirroring texture within the bulb case (Lancer VI for example) ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/35466-whats-wrong-with-dr-20-cars/?do=findComment&comment=406760 ) 3. Tyre wear is too forgiving at the moment, making any choice besides Soft and Wet nonsense. Tyre wear, at least on softs, needs to be improved so that it wears way faster than it currently does, so that Medium and Hard compounds are a viable choice whenever there are bigger stages. And if possible, make it so that tyre wear rates also depend on how you drive (if you push harder, higher speed and higher sliding will cause the tyres to wear faster). ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/35154-tyre-life-and-running-order/ ) 4. There are a few details missing from tail lights when the lights are on and brakes applied ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/35466-whats-wrong-with-dr-20-cars/?do=findComment&comment=407285 ) 5. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI lacks halogen lights during night stages. The game only places the 2 in the front bumper, but it lacks the set on the bonnet. ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/34816-dirt-rally-20-v11-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=408600 ) 6. There's no mention on these patch notes about AI scoring irregular points in the My Team career. Not sure if this also happens on custom events. ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/34816-dirt-rally-20-v11-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=408152 ) 7. After a stage when you're in the service then go to the main menu and back again in the service, the tyres you used lose their used condition and just display as "New". 8. Some materials while in wet conditions seem to lack proper roughness, making them extra shiny and bland ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/34816-dirt-rally-20-v11-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=407693 ) 9. Running order seems to be class dependent. Example: Group A will never start 1st on the running order regardless if they lead the entire rally, and not just the class, making the running order and track degradation a bit shady. There's also the issue where the championship leader will start cleaning the first stage of the event (correct), except if you are on another class other than R5, but then if you lead the rally once again you don't get the best order position for the best grip. Not sure how you're gonna do it, but something needs to be done about this, as older classes get 90% of the time rutted stages. Working as intended. 10. Splash VFX and SFX are missing when passing through a splash (New England stages). Fixed in patch v1.2.1 - v1.3. 11. PS4|PS4 Pro - Rain drops are pitch white during night when lighted by the headlights. ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/35657-dirt-rally-20-v12-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=409302 ) 12. There are more reports of stuttering since v1.2, which didn't exist before.

( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/35657-dirt-rally-20-v12-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=409334 ) Fixed in patch v1.3. 14. PS4|Xbox One|Xbox One S - blurry graphics, unable to turn off TAA, low resolution textures overall, faulty HDR and unable to adjust FOV. 15. Rally events are appearing twice in the same career championship, omitting one rally ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/35657-dirt-rally-20-v12-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=410026 ) 16.

Buggy dialog box showing code instead of text concerning insufficient funds to repair car damage in the main menu ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/35657-dirt-rally-20-v12-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=409684 ) NOTE: Needs confirmation if this still happens in v1.3 20. To get the trophy "watch the delta" and "living the dream" you have to buy the Group A and B cars that are already included in the Deluxe Edition. 21. Despite the 7th rally being added to the game (Monte Carlo), championships only have 6 events. Should get adjusted as locations get added. NOTE: Needs confirmation. 22. During replay, tyres are squealing on snow/ice/gravel surfaces like if it was tarmac. This happens when track degradation is OFF. ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/36042-next-patch/?do=findComment&comment=415800 ) 23. Wipers remain automatic even after being disabled in the settings. Fixed in patch v1.3. 24.

In Monte Carlo rally, when you go to the service area after you finish a stage, the ground floor is black like if it was missing a texture (i'll make sure to get a screenshot on this one soon, it happened to me on a GTX 770 with the latest nvidia driver) NOTE: Needs confirmation. 26. When overwriting a setup it resets its name instead of keeping the old name. Fixed in patch v1.3. 27. Rev counter analog display is upside down in the Mk1 Golf ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/35657-dirt-rally-20-v12-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=412114 ) Working as intended. 28.

There's reports that "Unexpected Moments" stop appearing after a certain time spent in career. 30. PS4 (and maybe Xbox) - There's reports of Modern Classics achievement not unlocking. 31. Argentinian flag flickers in one of the argentinian stages ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/35657-dirt-rally-20-v12-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=412905 ) 32. If you don't take spare tyres and have a puncture in a stage, the tyre will still get repaired on the next one. Happening in Custom Multiplayer Events. This used to work before, at least in My Team, before v1.2. Should this be restricted to My Team mode only, it needs to be implement in Custom Events as well. 33. We can't change the Penalty Times parameter while setting up a Custom Event. ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/35657-dirt-rally-20-v12-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=414541 ) 34. On custom events stage results, the penalty time does not account for the service penalty time (when applied) and therefore will give misleading stage times. Example: Player 1 had a service penalty time, but his stage time shows as if he didn't get a penalty at all. Basically there's no track of this penalty and there's no certainty to the other players in the session wether this penalty has been applied or not. Bug confirmed yesterday while playing with some friends. 35. "Tune Vehicle" option in service area not appearing in My Team Online Events unless returning to service area from main menu. 36. Sound cutting bug is still present. 37. Spanish co-driver call is incorrect in Poland stage "Lejno" and "Zienki". Should say "izquierda uno" (left one) and not "derecha uno" (right one) ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/36317-dirt-rally-20-v13-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=415733 ) 38. The portuguese translation or "Clear" weather is wrong, it should say "Céu Limpo" or simply "Limpo" and not "Limpar". "Limpar" is used as "to clean", and "limpo" alone makes no sense because that's just not how we use the verbs, we say it's "clear" like "sky clear", which doesnt make sense in english but that's the way it is in PT-PT and PT-BR. Eitherway, rather have it shown as "Limpo" than "Limpar". ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/36317-dirt-rally-20-v13-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=415813 ) 39. Career leaderboards seem to be working but now Time-Trial doesn't seem to be accepting new times. ( https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/36317-dirt-rally-20-v13-found-a-bug-post-it-here/?do=findComment&comment=415855 ) 40. When selecting recommended repairs in a service area, components out of view stay on 'no fix' unless you scroll down to view and reselect recommended repairs. 41. If you try to load a saved championship in Freeplay/Custom, it won't load. NOTE: This bug came on the Sweden 4.5GB pre-load patch on Thursday, April 18 (Steam) 42. I tried to resume a custom championship that was left in the middle (it was Monaro, Australia) and once it loaded it showed Monaco stages instead and the progress was lost. NOTE: This bug came on the Sweden 4.5GB pre-load patch on Thursday, April 18 (Steam) 43. Whenever you pause the game or start a new stage, if you're using dashcam (and maybe if you define different cockpit positions), the game will reset the camera to cockpit. Those who drive in the default cockpit already don't experience this issue, and I'm not sure this is happening to external cameras. NOTE: This bug came on the Sweden 4.5GB pre-load patch on Thursday, April 18 (Steam) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I will be updating the list as some of the bugs get confirmation and as any new ones arise. Comparing to the previous list, there were 47 items in the list and we're now down to 37, with the possibility of this number to go even further down if any of the bugs needing confirmation are ironed out (watch out for stroked lines). Overall this reveals a pretty good job in this patch, considering the timeframe and the severity of the bugs that were fixed. There were also a couple of bugs added to this list, that weren't present in v1.2's list yet, although they existed. If any of the remaining bugs, specially the ones with the red note, happen to you in v1.3 please post here. It would also be nice if anyone would help with some of these bugs confirmations.

    For some reason it is better so set wheather on "low" then it is sort of driveable.
