    Upcoming dash cam?

    Yeah, at the end of the day only Jon can explain his reaction. I might just project my thoughts onto his reaction.

    Upcoming dash cam?

    I noticed that too in Jon's reaction. He struggled a moment with agreeing on realism but then he did quite half heartedly. I think Kilotonn did a good job in modeling the stages but to me the handling never looked as convincing as DR2.0. It seems they took a huge leap compared to the previous game, though.

    Serious regret on buying this game

    I haven't read much complaints about game crashes to be honest. There's a way to boost your credits. Just finish a stage in every weekly and monthly, then retire. When the competition ends you'll get credits for having participated. I hope you can get this sorted out, it could be a problem on your end, though. That's one serious downside with PC. There's so much fiddling with settings, drivers etc.
  4. I understand there must be a bit of leniency, especially in RX as it is a contact sport and you can get pushed wide, getting a time penalty on top would be a bit unfair, so I don't blame Codies. I was referring more to the drivers. What's the point in taking #1 like that? I don't get it.
  5. This is the #1 ghost in RX Supercars TT. Good job! What's the point, really?
  6. No, no penalty for me. You must've picked it up somewhere else during your run. Does the game not show the time penalty the moment it detects an infraction? If you cut really bad and trigger a reset zone you get reset on track with an instant message with the time penalty.
  7. That's a minor cut and if I'm not mistaken they do take this line too in real life, but this is a big one in my view. Sorry for the huge video again 😕 rich1eI_DiRTRally20_20191011_22-20-15.mp4
  8. Yep, not only that. The difficult part in the chicane is the fine line between hitting the apex and not getting launched in the air by those orange kerbs. Yesterday I found out that you can skip the 'apex approach' by just cutting to left of the kerb in the first part and to the right in the second part of the chicane. Not sure how much time is gained but it's a ton at least. Edit: Same with the joker lap.

    DiRTy Gossip

    Yes, it definitely has that option. I've seen it in a review video a few days ago.
  10. Yep, I mean those nice modern WRC cars. We have similar modern rally cars in the game. They do not handle as nice as the real thing, though. I don't know about you but I crash a lot, lose control, spin out, barrel roll, slide off cliffs or wrap my car around trees. It seems you don't. It's fine. I'm out.
  11. The rally video's still there to watch for everyone. The evidence is there, how someone still can go on with that nonsensical narrative, is beyond me. Rally cars are stable. They're even more stable than in DR2.0.
  12. Honestly, I don't know because usually if I mess up a jump in 90% of the cases I have to restart the stage because I crashed. Generally, airborne physics is also an area where DR2.0 has vastly improved compared to the first game, and at this point, even if cars do not land on one wheel or nose first, what does this prove? Nothing. By having to cherrypick scenarios that happen in real life to prove your point, you only prove one thing: It's close enough to the real thing. No game can simulate everything that happens IRL. Literally every single scenario you mentioned in previous posts is also happening in the game.
  13. I didn't say disrespect, I said condescending and arrogant. That's different. I was just wondering where that comes from, that's all. I see that often, when people run out of arguments they start throwing words like 'arcade' into discussions. It just doesn't add anything to any discussion here, it just shows the confusion and stubbornness, of which there is quite a lot in the gaming 'community'.
  14. I can't take that seriously anymore. i'm wondering where that condescending and arrogant attitude comes from. I bet the World Series is so easy for you. As a hardcore super simracer you don't even bother competing with those arcade gamers. smh I really hope some of the top guys read that garbage here and comment because it's ridiculous. I posted that video to show you what's going on in real life racing because it appears you have no idea and yet you want to tell people what's realistic and what's not. I think it doesn't matter what people say. You just keep playing the same record again and again. Useless.
  15. I'm not sure what you mean by 'go competitive'. I highly doubt we will be seeing one single casual player in the quarter finals of the World Series. The price you pay for mistakes regarding damage, I agree, could be higher, but the physics and handling of the game are punishing enough. You skim the fence just a tiny bit on a narrow road at New Zealand and you'll find yourself either upside down or facing the wrong direction, stage over. Before a jump you better straighten your line as much as possible because otherwise you'll be needing some luck to keep going. I don't even know why we need to discuss this, you play the game, the proof is there and I experience all this every day I start the game. Meanwhile in real life. Pretty much DR2.0 gameplay right there! ^^
  16. Ok then try going full throttle and chase highest speeds in DR2.0, I wish you good luck. I can guarantee, you won't be able to finish one single stage. RBR might have aspects that you think DR2.0 lacks. Your opinion, fine. I haven't read one plausible argument so far, just claims and personal opinions, that outside of this forum seem to be very popular, nothing more. DR2.0 might seem to be tame in comparison to RBR but that just means that the physics in RBR are outdated. It's a 14 year old game, today's tech is much more advanced, and that's why I think DR2.0 is closer to the real thing. Cars drive even better IRL. Any video of real rally proves that. I said this before, ECU controlled active diffs were banned from WRC 13 years ago because basically it had become too easy to drive fast in rally cars (ofc cost reduction was one of the key factors here too). That there's not enough feedback in RWD is also just an opinion. I disagree, I think it's brilliant.
  17. I haven't played RBR obviously as I'm a console noob but I have seen some gameplay and to me it just looks so outdated in every aspect. Anyone who has watched real rallying will agree, DR2.0 is far superior in terms of handling and physics. Hardcore damage could use some tweaks though, as I feel it really is a bit too forgiving. I find it interesting that people who were complaining about spinning out too much a few days ago now say 'sorry guys, but it's too easy, it's made to make you feel good'. I agree, DR2.0 makes me feel really good as it is so much fun and an absolute blast to drive. So rewarding when you get it right, and so punishing if you make a tiny mistake. The devs did an amazing job in improving handling and physics.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Version 1.9 Bug Reports

    This bug is not specifically related to the latest patch so it has been around for some time. It doesn't let me change tyres after a puncture in dailies. Unfortunately I've not been able to reproduce this. I always make sure spare tyres are selected but very rarely I can change the tyre if a puncture occurs. Deluxe edition on Xbox using a wheel.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series

    I don't know what you're talking about to be honest. Who's complaining about people using assists? The sporting regulations say that all assists are allowed during qualification. Regarding DoR, can you show me where I can find it in the assists menu? I can't find it. I don't care which cam people will be using during the finals. If someone's used to chase cam, why shouldn't he use it?

    DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series

    I think everyone should be free to use whatever they're comfortable with. I understand from a marketing perspective that Codies want to see everyone using a wheel during the final, but I think it's extremely unfair to those who potentially will reach the finals on a game pad. I don't know why using 360° is unfair to anyone. If you think it makes people quicker, why don't you use it too? Bonnet cam? it's there in the game, everyone can use it. My crystal ball just told me that the same people will be on top of the leaderboard, regardless of DOR, camera or assists.

    Daily M2 GT

    Why is it wasted time? It'll still be fully upgraded when the turbo bug is fixed. 🤔

    Tarmac Physics and FFB

    I don't know why you don't want to use the word 'torque' because that's exactly what the driveshaft is transmitting to the wheels. What you're describing is exactly what is explained in the video. It is off-topic anyway and irrelevant to the discussion. I was just giving the advice to change diff settings to reduce oversteer in RWD cars.
  23. richie

    Tarmac Physics and FFB

    No, you can look it up. An open diff sends the same torque to both wheels. The wheel with more traction will always be limited to the torque sent to the wheel with less traction, while more lock means more torque is sent to the wheel with more traction.

    No, good thing about this word is that it's empty. You can fill in any meaning you want ^^

    I don't know, he uses this word a lot, I guess it's one of his favourites. It has been used a lot and it really got old. ^^
