    analog handbrake

    Thanks, yes I am using my shifter as a digital handbrake in sequential mode. However, on steam I have seen PC guys use their t8ha in h-pattern turned sideways as an analog handbrake. I was wondering if the analog option will be available for PS4 users with the T8ha shifter.

    analog handbrake

    Will this allow me to set up my th8a as an analogue handbrake on PS4? I have seen the PC guys do it 😬

    DiRT 2.0 disappointing loyaltys

    I have never cared for the handling with the WRC series (primarily with the the WRC 6 and 7 I tried on PS4). As far as the DiRT series, I have played DiRT 3, DiRT 4, DiRT Rally, and DR 2.0 and also own and still play all but DiRT 3 all the time because they are that much fun in their own ways. Edit: As far as question number 1, I agree that we are so close to what could/should be expected from our favorite rally game series, so each little bug is bittersweet. My enthusiasm has not been curbed in any way and I have been playing daily since the first day we all couldn't play because racenet was down and required for career mode lol...

    D+ challenges not featuring the dlc content

    LOL I was forced into buying the season 3/4 just for that one daily stage! It's an outrage 😁

    D+ challenges not featuring the dlc content

    I was going to buy season 3 and 4 anyway, but I had to buy them yesterday for a D+ event that was H2 RWD and there are no season 3 or 4 cars in that class. I got a 2001 Focus and Scooby STI... Neither the car nor the location was actually a DLC item for yesterday's D+ event. I guess we need to be season pass holders to drive those events regardless of the venue or cars involved. I agree it would be nice if those events featured more DLC locations. Since I was going to buy the season 3/4 pass anyway I am not complaining, but I was surprised when all of a sudden I couldn't enter a D+ event. It would be nice to receive a clearer communication from Codemasters regarding such things..

    Total cost of Dirt Rally 2.0

    What about Poland, New Zealand, New England, Argentina, Porsches (the whole RGT class, really), a bunch of new RX tracks, etc. There is new content. Maybe not a lot though. I agree that we should have expected all the previous content plus some new stuff right from launch. I also agree that paying for DLC that is just our old favorites from DR1 is a bit disappointing, but they *are* favorites and the more places to rally, the longer I will keep playing the game.

    Rear View Mirror - what is this option for?

    I usually lose my mirrors to the starting gate or a sign post along the way. Then there's no need to fret about such options...

    Bring back Delta Daily Challenges!

    There are delta dailies. They aren't marked as such from the menu, but sometimes during a daily event my progress bar on the left will be green instead of red, and for scoring there are only two tiers. I agree it was done better in previous games. In DR I was never sure what the delta time represented. In DR2 I am not sure if I am driving a delta stage until it's half over.

    Feeling a bit disenchanted...

    It's not dirt WRX. It is not primarily a rally cross game. It was never marketed as such so far as I can recall. Codemasters is trying to attract as wide a fanbase between both rally and RX within the small sim racing community, and the subset within that community interested in driving the dirt. Not everyone will be enchanted but we can find some common ground and have some real fun with what we have 🦄🙂

    What happened to the shipping containers, ramps, obstacles etc.?
  11. Exactly. Otherwise why not Sweden in the summer time too? Please no...
  12. This is true also IRL. Mostly bald (and studless) Nokians and Blizzaks make really fun summer tires but they wear out within one oil change. 😁
  13. The tarmac handling is not as bad as everyone makes it sound and it is far better than D4. Germany was my personal favorite from DR and they made it even better in DR2. The slippery surface in Monte Carlo makes every corner and crest more of a gamble. I would try it without, but it's the icy bits that make it more interesting and intense.

    T300 problem persist

    I will try this the next several days and hopefully it will work for me too!

    T300 problem persist

    My t300 (also on ps4 pro) keeps its settings but has no ffb unless I start a stage or shakedown and pause unplug and replug sometimes more than once. When it works I feel a small twitch in the wheel when it connects. This is like 70% of the time

    Too short finishes

    Yes, this has been brought up a few times. I think they are trying to be realistic with actual rally finishes, and most are long enough if only just by a hair. Everyone has to drive the same stage so it's not unfair or anything. You could try maxing out the time control braking setting and see. It is partway on by default and I turned mine off because regaining control and not kneecapping the time marshall at the end is part of the experience.

    "Fix" for audio loss mid-race

    I am on ps4 pro and after a crash sometimes Phil's voice gets muted and hard to hear for the next few turns only. It's always after a big crash and the rest of the audio is still at the same volume. It's never been a big problem because I can still just barely hear his voice over the engine.
  18. I don't play career so just doing one daily event each day would be just like playing the original DR. 3 to 7 minutes and I'm done playing... This way I get to play for at least 30 minutes with all the extra loading times. Plus I get to hoard more credits 🙂
  19. Is there a difference between Group B rally and the RX versions? I didn't do much RX in Dirt 4. Why are there no RWD only RX cars except for the go-cart? Seems like it would be fun. I never heard of RX racing until I started playing Dirt Rally 1 a few years ago. I am not very good at it but it is great fun! I am happy to try anything new as it comes out.

    Codies' Lighting Team's Favourite Movie

    I thought you were going with the 2009 Star Trek because of the overdone lens flare and bloom... Screen_Shot_2013-09-30_at_4.57.13_PM.webp

    P mill repair ability

    Definitely. I have my whole team maxed out just in case 🙂

    P mill repair ability

    When you get the "terminal damage" animation you get a popup on screen where you choose between retire or return to the service area. You get a DNF for the stage you stuffed it on, but you are allowed to repair (even though it might not be a stage with a service stop for everyone else) and continue with the rally. You won't break any records but you get to continue and will end up with more credits or points at the end than if you just quit.
  23. Maybe try driving a whole stage in reverse? lol

    Favourite corner sequence?

    Now that Germany is out, mine is the section I think of as "the bowtie" because of how it looks on the map 🙂 There really are so many cool choices now in 2.0!
  25. I tried the conical brake mod with my T3PA pedals for like 10 seconds. I had to push so hard on the brakes to stop the pedals were sliding away from me on the carpet. Without the mod my pedals never move around and there is a nice spring resistance built in. I drive with just socks to avoid getting lead-footed into the trees.
