  1. thanks for the clarification! But the user can just enter the options menu and change it from "manual sequential" to "manual h pattern" and vice versa, right? For any car right? As long as the input mappings are there. So why can't the game itself just choose the right option based on the car?
  2. Then how about a sticky thread with a list of bugs that have been acknowledged/reproduced? People have asked for this FOR AGES. Just because you don't communicate timings, doesn't mean you should communicate NOTHING.

    DiRTy Gossip Thread

    no, it works! the latest release doesn't touch the NEFS files anymore. https://github.com/zissakos/EECMT/releases
  4. Thanks @ChristinaMc for this info. But why is it that you only gave this info as a reply to some people asking stuff? And only after the heat rose up again in the forums? Why can't you just give this info UNSOLICITED, as part of your job as a community manager? And why only buried deep down page 15 of some other thread? (actually what does info about 1.3 have to do in a thread about 1.2?) Is this how you understand/interpret your job as a community manager or is this what you have been told to? Is it sooo difficult/asked toooo much to just have a sticky thread about the next patch which you update EVERY TWO DAYS? Is that really too much?

    ‘Camera Shake’ - SOLVED!

    try this. just extract it into the game's cars folder. It's just a subfolder per car with a cameras.xml file in it. If you don't like it, just delete these subfolders. It restores the dash cam you're used to from DR1 (and raises bumper cam a bit). cars.zip
  9. that's a bummer. Why not increase championship length to 7 now that there are 7 locations? @ChristinaMc

    Remove Always Online for the Career!

    Yes, @ChristinaMc is there any news on this? After the huge backlash from this community and Steam reviews, is there anyone from the team looking into possibilities to address this. See also my other thread with a suggestion on this that was moved to the Suggestion Box.
  11. @bn880 BLA BLA BLA. W T F do you care?? Let people get these simple features if it makes the game better for them! If there's already a slider, it obviously doesn't work effectively enough, so it could be just adjusted a little more by COdies. And in DR1 in the VR settings you could just eliminate head shake completely to eliminate motion sickness. Which was great!! Let people be bn880, would you????

    DiRTy Gossip Thread

    Thanks for the info @ChristinaMc I think it would be a good idea if someone from handling team could write a VERY SMALL roadbook about the FFB situation. Not to justify anything, but rather with an informational/educational character. Like " we changed this and that in DR2.0 and therefore the FFB changed in this and that way". You know like in the good old DR1 days. I know the team must be fulltime 150% dedicated to fixing this etc. etc. but some information to the customers is also very very important, and I don't think it would need more than like 1-2h for someone to write something... Especially if the first patch won't adress the FFB at all. I am sure you know how the reactions will be... So an article which you (and us) could point people to would be VERY HELPFUL. What do you think?
  13. @CatBadders I don't think people will complain if the aquired progress wouldn't transfer between the two. Offline Career would be something completely separate from MyTeam/career, e.g. by putting it in freeplay (as you said). When you first enter Offline Career a message could pop up to clarify that all you do will be offline only and nothing can be used for online modes etc.
  14. This is a constructive proposal to solve the OnlineOnly Controversy. Many people have given bad steam reviews because of this. And then the numerous forum threads... There have been some suggestions (let the player decide if the Career should be online/offline), but this proposal is different. So the current Career Mode involves Racenet because the Career is in the same "space" as all the online events. Cars are shared between these (you can only use cars in online modes that you have bought in career). If a car is currently in a Championship it can't be used in an Online Event (Daily/Weekly etc.) and vice versa. All transactions in Career must be verified by RaceNet in real time to prevent cheating etc. And here's the thing: That's all fine. Nothing needs to change about that. The thing is that something is just missing from the game: A mode with a sense of progression that lets us see all the game has to offer WITHOUT any online stuff and Racenet. In other words: a small/lean OfflineOnly Career Mode, just like the one in Dirt Rally 1. Nothing fancy. You start with some money, buy a car, enter a championship in easy difficulty. At the end of the championship, if you placed in Top 3 you are being promoted to the next tier/difficulty. You earn money along the way and buy more cars. No upgrades, no team members. At the end of your career you will have a decent number of cars and you will have seen all stages in all locations in almost all conditions. The number of events in a championship is always the same, it's the base six PLUS any DLC locations you have bought (order is random). The number of stages per event increases with the difficulty, as well as "night stages per event" or "rain stages per event" etc. You know, like it was in Dirt Rally. And that's it. Nothing more, nothing less. It's just missing. It must be added NEXT TO the current modes, not replace any of them. Because the problem of the current offering is this: There is custom/free mode for a quick dip into any stage with any car and that's it. Fire and forget. Quick fun. And then there is the MyTeam/Career where you (can) compete against the WHOLE WIDE WORLD, are faced with Racenet/Leaderboards and whatnot. Which is just intimidating for new players. Like "WHOA WAIT A MINUTE! CAN I FIRST PLAY THROUGH THE GAME FIRST BEFORE I COMPETE AGAINST OTHERS?" There is nothing in between that lets players become good drivers on their own, you know, "git gud", with a sense of progression (money/cars) without OnlineConnectivity and only THEN compete against the world. Climbing a ladder of difficulties, trying (almost) all cars on all tracks, and then after you have finished a championship in the hardest difficulty, you just feel great, you think you are the king of drivers... and then you need the next challenge. And this is exactly where the magic would happen: Players wouldn't see the MyTeam/Career mode as a limitation (because of Racenet) BUT as an extension of the game, to expand their horizon. As the natural next thing to do after you have finished the Offline Career (aka "finished the game" = having seen all cars and all stages) and having become a decent driver. A mode that presents the next challenge in which they might have to earn their cars first but hey that's life (no one gives you an expensive car right from the start to compete). And since they have already played the game for dozens of hours it shouldn't take too long to get to a decent level/garage with a decent selection of cars etc. All the hate would be gone. What do people think? What do Codemasters think?

    I can't be the only one

    You're right. Everything that happens in capitalist countries is ALWAYS correct. No room for criticism ever. How dare you. Greed is a nonexistent concept which only exists in the bible.
