  1. @PJTierney, do you have any updates on the championship score problem (see the post above by 'Beefcote852', where he offers his analysis on the issue)?
  2. Thanks @Beefcote852 for adding your further insights and analysis to this thread. When the 'club-element' was first introduced to Dirt Rally 2.0 last summer, I think we had a time period of maybe three weeks, when the championship scoreboard was operating as it should. Then the problems started. It took a really long time to pinpoint the root cause behind the problem. Codemasters made some specially focused temporary fixes to some larger clubs (as the problem was identified to only affect clubs that had large member base). I can't remember by heart, when this happened precisely, but it was some time end of November, early December last year. After the temporary fix was installed the championship scoreboard of our club began to work without any problems. For some reason I cannot open the www.dirtrally2.com site at the moment, but if I recall correctly, there are two pages on the 'championship standings section', which can be accessed by using the arrow buttons on the screen. The first (furthest to the left) page shows the accumulated championship points acquired by drivers in the previous championships. I don't know what is the starting point, where the system begins to count these points, whether it is only the previous championship season or does it possibly cover several previous seasons, this I don't know. I haven't followed this section so carefully. However, my understanding is that drivers tend to be only interested in the championship points of the current, on-going championship, and they don't really pay much attention to the cumulative scores. In my view the cumulative section is unnecessary. More useful would be, if we could access the scores of previous championship seasons in the same way, as we see the scores from the on-going championship season, i.e. showing the points per event in a given championship season. This is the view that we see as a default on the second page, which opens as the starting page, when accessing the championship standings section, which shows the championship standings in the current, on-going championship season (showing points per event). I think your assumption that this section is now compromised by points deriving from the previous championships, is correct. In other words, the system is not able to draw a line between points that a driver has acquired from previous championships and the points that the driver has scored in the on-going championship. Thanks again for raising this issue in your post and for commenting this thread. Let's hope Codemasters will be able to sort out the problem asap.
  3. Fingers crossed then. I checked the championship scoreboard a few hours ago, and at least then, the problem was still there.
  4. G'd evening @PJTierney! Do you have any news or updates, whether the current problems with respect to club championship scores is going to be fixed? Is the new version, which is rolled out tomorrow, perhaps going to address these issues and fix the problem? It's really a nuisance to run club championships when the championship scoreboard is not functioning properly. Would really appreciate a fast fix on this. Cheers!
  5. Ok, thanks @PJTierney! I'll be following how things develop. As I was looking through the screenshots that I posted yesterday, I also noticed that the championships points that the system has credited to the drivers from the alleged three events (although two have been completed so far) do not sum up to equal the total points shown on the leaderboard.
  6. Hi @PJTierney and Happy New Year! I hope you are doing well. I regret to inform you that the championship score board has a new fault. I don't know when this problem occurred for the first time, but it wasn't there before. The leaderboard that show the current standings in the on-going championship season, is not correct. The table shows some mystery points, which are not based on the driver performances in the ongoing championship season. In the attached screenshot you can see the problem. Our championship season includes four events, out of which we have completed two. Still the table shows points from three events. The points in the table marked under "3" (third event) don't even represent the current standings in the third event, as there are only a handful of drivers, who have started the event. Thus, the points under the "third event column" don't have any base anywhere. They have just randomly appeared. Could you please be so kind, and see if the tech-team could look into this problem. Thanks!
  7. @PJTierney, one further point with reference to your previous message (above). The championship points anomalies started already in August. Hence, the problem could easily date back to versions 1.6/1.7. Here's a quote from my post that I made on this forum on the 5th of August: "We started our first full-scale championship (12 events) at the end of June. Now our championship has progressed to its 6th event. For some unexplained reason the Clubs page at www.dirtrally2.com only shows championship standings (points) from the first three events. For events 4 and 5 the points column on the championship standings section shows zero points for all the club members. The 4th event of the Gravel Busters club championship finished on 26 of July and the 5th event on the 2 of August. Thus, there should have been enough time (particularly for the 4th event) for the Dirt Rally 2 server/system to update the championship standings & points by now."
  8. Hi @PJTierney As I already mentioned on Twitter today, the Gravel Busters club championship points/standings system is still faulty. We launched our 4th championship season a week ago, and the first event of this championship finished earlier today. It was very regrettable to discover that the points system remains in shambles (see attached photo). EDIT: The driver who is ranked 253, is actually the winner of the first championship event. The driver who ranked second is placed on position 334. on the championship leaderboard (the attached screenshot). Here are the links to our Twitter conversation
  9. @Kembro, my understanding from PJ’s original message was that the points system should be working, when our next championship season begins. The next Gravel Busters championship season starts on the 11th of November, when the “European R2 Cup” kicks off.

    Share your Custom Liveries & Tools here.

    Hello everyone, The World Rally Enthusiasts Facebook page (www.facebook.com/WorldRallyEnthusiasts) just celebrated its 1st anniversary. To mark this occasion we published a Dirt Rally 2.0 custom livery for the BMW M2 car specially made and customized for the World Rally Enthusiasts by Mesa's Artworks. The base design behind this custom livery is the winning car livery called “Crystal Flakes”, which won the Dunlop Art Car Livery Design Competition in 2017. The Crystal Flakes livery was designed by renowned artist Jean Pierre Kraemer and it was debuted on a Walkenhorst Motorsport BMW M6 GT3 in the season-opener of the VLN Endurance Championship in 2017. Mesa’s Artworks did an absolutely outstanding job in making this livery a reality. The World Rally Enthusiasts Facebook page is deeply grateful to Mesa for all his efforts and high-quality work on this livery. The custom livery can be downloaded from Google Drive using this download link: https://drive.google.com/…/1bPQsHPF3YeKWMLMQN78zc8eg_XrB_NN…
  11. @PJTierney, this is absolutely superb news!!! Oh, I'm so delighted to hear this and at the same time, so very grateful to you for your help. I really do appreciate this enormously. I was planning on setting up the next Gravel Busters championship season either today or tomorrow. Can I proceed doing so, or do I need to wait for a certain time, in order to make sure that the fixes to the championship points systems have taken effect? Cheers PJ, you're a star!
  12. Hi @PJTierney! Our second Gravel Busters Club championship season is drawing to a close. Still two more events to go. In the attached screenshots you can see an example of the persistent problem that we have with the championship points system at our club. The 5th event (out of a total of 7) was won by a player with the ID "Kaapoz" (1st screenshot). "Kaapoz" also won the previous championship event (event no. 4 /7). However, on the championship standings score board (2nd screenshot) "Kaapoz" has zero points. On the same screenshot there is a player with the ID "RobbieG". He has driven in each championship event in the ongoing championship season and he should also have championship points. However, the score board show a plain '0' for him.
  13. Good morning @PJTierney, do you have any news or update on the championship points bug in the club system? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
  14. @PJTierney, ok, thanks! I just checked the championship standings list and it's in the same state as it was in the beginning of the month, when the Codies tech-team had taken their first look and managed to make some improvements. Since then the list has remained intact with the same old, remaining anomalies still there.
  15. If a club event has several stages taking place within the same time frame of the day (i.e. 'day', 'sunset', 'dusk' or 'night'), the game engine is not capable of putting the start times for these stages in a chronological order. For example, if there are four stages marked to start under the heading 'day', it can be that there are same start times for several of these 4 stages, or in the worst case, it's also possible that stage 4 starts earlier than stage 3. I know this is merely a cosmetic issue, but I have received some feedback on this issue from club members in those clubs that I host. Just an idea for future development work.
