    WRC 9

    Except the control issue he identifies is with 9 And he says it's the same issue as 8 No way am I buying this. 8 was trash.

    So which one of you mofos has played this sweeeet looking little game?

    WRC 9

    Oh boy: https://medium.com/brit-gamer/wrc-9-versus-dirt-rally-2-0-on-controller-e21686b80b8c He's absolutely nailed the problems with WRC 8, especially with a controller. It's awful and exactly as he describes. I haven't tried 9, but this article has a ring of truth about it... That's the end of Kylotonn racing games for me. Next WRC game I purchase will be Codies first official title on the Xbox series X.

    WRC 9

    @danielofifi Are you playing it on the PS4? If so, how's the frame-rate? Does it feel any smoother than last time? And has the collision detection improved, or do you still bump weirdly from trackside objects or walls? Have those physics improved do you think? I found the cars to react in strange ways sometimes, whereas in DR2.0 its nearly 100% believable.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Just an unrelated comment: Art of Rally is going to be a smash-hit. I can feel it. That bloke has nailed the zeitgeist with the looks of the thing and the handling based on real-life inertia and physics. And it will be a great thing for Codies, as it will bring in new fans to rally eager for the real-deal. More reason for DR3.0 to go full subtle, photographic, real-world lighting and colours in their approach. The colourful 'gamey' look is being done elsewhere, in Dirt 5 and AoR.

    Dishing the DIRT - Two Teams, One Future

    Great to hear in that 'Next-gen console tech' interview, the director of Dirt 5 placing such emphasis on high frame-rates. Sounds like they're going for 120fps locked on the new consoles. This was a brilliant decision - to prioritise FPS - going back to Dirt Rally 1. To think the official WRC game still plays only at 30fps on current consoles. It's a major advantage that Codies have set that standard.

    So... are we getting closer to getting a date for when we might get some info on when we'd perhaps get a date for something new or perhaps just info on the next phase of the Dirt Rally series?

    A much slower path to acquiring new cars, but with no car-upgrades (or at least keeping these to actual realistic equivalents) would be better, but with a greater choice of events at any one time, rather than just the one and only path forward through identikit career rally events on permanent repeat. Oh, and however its final format turns out: OFFLINE CAREER MODE PLEASE

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT 5

    Lawl @ that video describing the downloading of the appropriate version of Dirt 5 for the console you are using as 'taking advantage of smart delivery' I bought some socks and some jocks. Good thing I took advantage of smart delivery technology which ensured the socks landed on my feet and jocks on my groin - or by gosh the outcome might have been rather uncomfortable!
  12. For example, how about keeping track of stats across all custom championships? Number of podium finishes, and stages won (sorted by AI difficulty), and other long-term data? So as to keep a sense of something more permanent and substantial in custom championships. The more 'career' style features that can be enabled (at the player's discretion) for custom championships, the better. Even potentially money, as a separate meter to what is earned in career. The GUI for custom championships is an absolute breeze to use, let's see that mode put to full use!

    Should Drunk Rallying be a Thing?

    So, I find that often when I've come home after sinking a decent number of pints, I'm somehow better at DR, at least for the first 30 mins or so, and then it goes downhill as the worst of both worlds collide, alcohol and inherent ineptitude. But initially, there is a cavalier power that takes over, and I'm easily breezing through sections I previously found tortuous. Perhaps its the over-riding of risk that the brain inadvertently factors in to virtual gaming. Or something. So anyway, why not allow real-life drunk rallying, all the way to WRC? There could even be different categories, based on blood alcohol level. .01-.05, .05-1, 1.5-2, over 2. Like the weight categories in boxing.

    Should Drunk Rallying be a Thing?

    Completely not serious, if that needed to be explained But silliness for a dead forum Here's some Art of Rally as a 'Hallucinogen Rallying' option instead, allowing @PJTierney to merge with that game's thread https://mobile.twitter.com/funselektor/status/1303452665041489920

    @PJTierney What does it do that PCARS 2 doesn't, once you tweaked the assists in 2 to make it arcadey? I couldn't see this in my very brief time playing it. Also the first track was so high-contrast my eyes actually genuinely felt real discomfort looking at it.

    Co-driver feedback

    There may be a few sections that could do with improved calls... ... but Codies should get major accolades for the sheer quality of Phil Mill's recording overall. The way it's different in urgency at different speeds, and blends between both so seamlessly. Never in all my long career of playing rally games and being really bad at them, did I think the co-driver could be a source of such gaming enjoyment. Mill's voice is exquisite, and the DR team delivered it beautifully! Even his post-race comments are hilarious in their wooden-ness, but still great to hear because of his voice. Would be great to hear more incidental phrases from him in the next game, from compliments all the way to 'you're breaking the car'.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT 5

    Seriously though, that purple and yellow combo rears its ugly head in DR2.0 - in sunset lighting on pretty much all stages. The weirdo purple, and thick, garish layer of yellow that cakes the road during sunset, looking like you're on a planet from No Man's Sky. And there's the purple and yellow motif in Dirt 5. Codies, if this is some kind of weird attempt at imprinting a brand via colours - the type of thing marketing departments like to go nuts over to justify their existence, please leave it out of DR3.0, and the WRC games. Stick it to the Dirt series by all means. Really, go nuts for bizarre brain damaging colours in that series, really get it out of your system.

    So, is Twitter arranging tweets for me based on colour co-ordination now?

    Co-driver feedback

    Still think the use of 'caution' is inadequate, there needs to be a few more of these over various rallies. Like the one in New Zealand where it does not take into account you are coming from a straight and the 3 left will send you flying off a hill if you don't slow right down. Otherwise I find it mostly OK, a few turns are perhaps 3s instead of 4s for example but these are the exceptions for me.

    I think the next DR2.0 update should include Ian Bell's grinning face looming over your windscreen before you start

    Please remove the wheel punching animation

    Yeah it's a bit deflating to finish a run you're happy with only to see a virtual wheel punching tantrum At least go the whole hog and have the driver set the car on fire
  23. Dear Codemasters, We have seen the future, and the future is Project CARS 3 Everyone, and I repeat, ever9one involved in the masterpiece of Western civilisation called Project CARS 3 should stand proud and erect For what a great leap forward this work of art represents Truly, it should be exhibited 24/7 in the Uffizi. Congrats on the purchase of SMS, Codemasters, you have shown the world what love of art brings to the soul over base commerce. IAN BELL FOR PM

    That's a smart and simple hack. And also near impossible to find now, alas. Anyhow, I'm happy with my Battle Beaver. Rounded, rubberised sticks with super extra stiffness - a joy to rally with!

    Project cars 3.

    It's a tragedy for the series Handling with a controller was already perfectly fine in PCARS 2 And on the consoles at least, PCARS 2 was the best circuit racer you could get. Realistic, amazingly immersive, fantastic visual options, huge amount of content. And a smooth 60fps, unlike ACC. What could have been, if they had further refined the graphics and added more content... Now I just do not see any recovery for the series back to a serious, grand sim. It's really sad.
