  1. Mz is one of the most - if not - the most important force/information. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self_aligning_torque It isn't present in DR1, so it still isn't clear why it should be the reference when talking about FFB and why it isn't a big deal in your opinion if it's missing.
  2. The same applies to you, doesn't it? DR1 is said to have some FFB effects that don't come from the physics, so it's some kind of fantasy vibration. How's that supposed to give any information about what your car/tyres/whatever are doing? Also, people forget that SAT wasn't present in DR1, so why is DR1 providing more information than the current game? If you try to answer these questions you'll see the contradiction.
  3. I can definitely confirm that trying to get the pre-patch FFB back by setting suspension to 0 doesn't work. Most noticeable when driving over cattle grids, they're completely 'muted' now. I agree that influencers should be more sensible with their 'verdicts' and differentiate more. They have hundreds of thousand of viewers, these people just repeat what their favourite streamer says regardless of the actual facts.

    Is this worth going back to?

    I totally understand what you mean and I completely agree. There were lots of heated discussions about the FFB, people were praising DR1 FFB even though the most important force was missing, SAT, and some other 'forces' were just canned effects. I can actually still feel the tyres sink into the surfaces, though. Most noticeable at Argentina.

    The dust effect is absolutely spot on, just as many things in this game.

    Is this worth going back to?

    Yeah, I quite liked the FFB before, too, although I agreed that a little bit more surface detail would've been nice. However, I would've preferred to keep the FFB pure, only coming from the physics. We still don't have a 100% confirmation that the new additional effect is fake, so we just don't know, but that was my first thought when I tried the new FFB. I had my suspension setting at 135 before the update. I first tried the new FFB at Australia. My first reaction was 'what is this??' I've settled with suspension at 50-55 now and it's ok. Christina said back then that it's still a WIP so maybe we'll see a few sudden GB's to download at some point.

    Is this worth going back to?

    I felt the same way right after V1.4 went live. Didn't like it at first, tried to get the old FFB feeling by setting suspension to 0 but it wasn't the same for sure. After fiddling a bit settings I'm quite liking the FFB so far. At the end of the day we don't know 100% whether the new rumbling effect comes from the physics or not. There hasn't been any statement on that matter.

    Oh, really? Four times in a row? That's interesting. Thanks for clarifying! Codies, did you read this? Next time put the damn right time stamp on DLCs, problem solved! 😂

    Feeling a bit disenchanted...

    Sometimes I think Codies have deployed some kind of satire entertainment program on the forums. ^^

    If you read my comments again it should be clear that it wasn't a theory, not even a thesis. It just seems a bit suspicious to me that Microsoft hasn't been able to ensure a flawless process for 4 times in row now. The assumption that Codies didn't try to make sure that everything goes alright when their DLCs are about to hit the market after the issues we had in the past is absurd. As I said earlier, I don't think Codies are keen on seeing an avalanche of complaints and toxic comments every time, so insinuating that they screwed up royally although it clearly isn't their fault, makes me realise that it's more probable that those, who refuse to understand that it's out of Codies' hands, are paid St. Petersburg trolls tbf. At some point you've got to start using your head ^^ Anyway, DLC is here now and everyone's happy. Still a 24h delay's not the end of the world, folks!

    Just bear in mind, no developer's keen to see lots of complaints on their forums. If the problem was on Codies side be assured they'd have figured out what the problem was after the second time the problem occurred at the latest. At the end of the day it really isn't that big of a deal, we'll be able to try Estering with just a few days of delay.

    No need to feel like that because it's not happening by choice. It's happening because obviously Microsoft store is having some issues. I'm starting to think they're being hacked. How many times has this happened so far? Three times, four times? If there was anything that Codies could've done about this I think they would have done it, don't you think?
  13. Nicely put, plain and simple. ^^

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Seasons 3 & 4

    Wooooohoooo! ^^
  16. I agree, Monte Carlo pacenotes need some 'cautions' here and there. I fell off the cliffs there more times than I'm prepared to admit ^^ I was thinking about turning the co-driver off but Phil's epicness has prevented me from doing so.

    The Codemasters Way

    In some cars like the Lancia Fulvia, Group B Porsche or the Opel Ascona, you can move the seat forward quite a bit, you basically get dashcam. In other cars you can't like the Impreza S14, Peugeot R5, and Fiesta R2/R5 e.g. Still ok(ish) though, but dashcam would've been really nice.

    Wow, seriously dude, go outside and have some cubic metres of fresh oxygen. Instead of wasting all that energy to find as many synonyms for 'fanboy' as possible you could've helped to improve the game a lot more by giving constructive feedback. I basically do only half agree with one single point you brought up (yes, it's a shame that there's no dashcam). The game's awesome, Codies have been updating and improving it constantly. This is fact, so saying that Codies are laughing at their customers while they've actually worked their %&%$§ off to fix a lot of bugs, is rubbish to say the least. I've said this before, anyone who decided not to play this game for whatever reason is missing out on a lot of awesome things. You can call me a defender now, I don't care. I love Defenders!

    The last Group B RX daily at Catalunya was a remarkable one for me. I knew that I had no idea where the joker lap entry would be on this circuit so I thought I'd need a few practice laps to figure that out. Klicked 'start' by mistake. Ok, then I needed to look out for the entry during the run, but I was too focused and I completely forgot. As I crossed the finish line I unlocked the 'Clown Car' achievement and I couldn't understand how this is possible. I checked the circuit in TT mode to at least try to understand what happened and I realised that I had done joker laps every single lap. I think at this point Tommy Lee Jones is inevitable.

    Ok but you know in advance that DR2.0 is the official FIA WRX Championship game. Not sure why people are surprised and complain about RX content being part the season pass tbf. I myself are not the biggest RX fan either, but I do enjoy doing some laps from time to time for a change. The cars are awesome, so are the locations, Latvia is so much fun, definitely my favourite atm. Really been enjoying it since release.
  23. I wouldn't say bad but incomplete. As Jake mentioned, a few 'caution' calls here and there would be appropriate if there's a risk of falling down a cliff if you overshoot a corner. I think the problem with pacenotes is the perception. A '3 left' in a R2 can be flat out, in a R5 car it definitely isn't. Also, if you just exited a hairpin and the next '2 left' is close it might be flat out too, even in a R5 car, so it always depends on the car class and the speed you reach a certain corner how you can take it. I think that's mostly why people feel that pacenotes are wrong.

    What's Your Favourite Location (so far...)?

    Really tough to name a favourite location. There are two locations I don't like much, but the rest is awesome in their respective unique way. Maybe I like Sweden a tiny bit more. I think Codies absolutely nailed the new snow banks. The way how they affect your run depending on the angle you touch them is truly brilliant.
