    McRae DLC problem

    @PJTierney my apologies, as it turns out it was fine, as it should be, I was using the winter tyres for the second stint, but to reach the required time you need to pick softs and just deal with the ice when your on it, cheeky, throwing me off there by adding an irrelevant tyre choice for the challenge, this dlc is going to annoy a lot of players That said, players have reported a time glitch, which seems to resolve itself by restarting the game, you can find any details on the DR2 threads on psnp, doesn’t seem like too much of an issue when you can just restart By the way, thanks for fixing the windscreen wipers (manual only) finally 😉 also the improvements to rain etc on the windscreen is much much better than before, this is the best rally game ever made and I cannot WAIT for DR3, go easy on the very hard challenges next time tho eh?

    McRae DLC problem

    @PJTierney yea the difficulty for very hard (set at 91) should be spiked for players that don’t own wheels and have to use controllers, I know a lot of devs think a controller is as fast as a wheel set up but the effort required has to be god like, and in some cases it just isn’t, meaning your catering to the 0.01% of gamers, if you want to make it insanely hard past (91) by all means but give pad users a fair chance at completing it The event in question is the 1998 Monte Carlo event, its just too much, with my skill I’ve been able to do all up to this on very hard at (91) with not too much difficulty but I’m quite good at the game, 1992 Scotland had me beat for a full day of trying but eventually learned the stage well enough and put in a good effort, so they’ve not been a walk in the park by any means (as it should be on v hard) but then with this I’m miles off the required pace, it feels like the devs have just decided to increase the difficulty from 91 to 110 here by default, with a controller here you just can’t do the stage times pros with wheels are doing, can you get back to me and let me know if this is being looked into, I haven’t done any of the later events after this so I’m not sure if you’ve made them progressively harder as you get through them but something has to be done with this event for sure, thanks
  3. First of all, thank you Codemasters for a challenging but fun dlc, I’ve lost weight doing these challenges on very hard, I’m using a DualShock4 too so I’ve got my work cut out for me, I’ve finished The Early Years, Rising Star, and most of World Champion on very hard (91 difficulty) but I feel like there may be a bit of a tuning issue with the difficulty regarding the Subaru Impreza S4, specifically the 1998 Monte Carlo event, all of the challenges in this vehicle are tougher than the rest, and that’s saying something, but this Monte Carlo event is impossible, i know I’ve nailed the stages but I’ve never seen the class leader move like that on any stage, I’m almost 40 seconds off the required time and considering every challenge up to his has kept the same level of difficulty, this one may need to be looked at, thanks though for an awesome DLC, I feel like I’m doing Colin proud every time I finish one ☝️ please do look into the Impreza S4 events @PJTierney
  4. Thanks for letting know, I’m a trophy hunter so I’m used to grinding for the platinums, this will take time and be rather tedious but I’ve done worse, far worse lol
  5. Ok awesome, won’t feel so worried starting this game now, there was speculation of it being bugged, people spending way too much time grinding it, how long does this take now there’s a proper tracker
  6. So there is now a progress tracker for this trophy?

    Pure sim

    I hope that future titles go more sim related, not that I’m knocking the gameplay because if Codemasters know how to do one thing perfectly it’s raw racing and, but DR2 almost felt like it had a few tweaked assists that couldn’t be turned off, but mainly it’s not the driving that’s the issue, for me it’s the cockpit cameras, we need an option to custom move the camera like you do in F1, I would like to change the field of view etc in camera options properly secondly the camera that was placed behind the front seats needs to return, even if it’s just for replays, miss that view from D4 also a big must for me is MASSIVE improvements to the physics and visuals of the windscreens, for example, if I have wipers on manual, and don’t use them, the full screen should be getting dirty all over to the point where I’m driving blind until I use them, I could drive full stages on DR2 without ever using the wipers and the dirt was firstly non existent and collected on the screen in a way that looked like the wipers were on, D4 had much better visuals on the windscreen I hope CM look to that game to inspire them for future titles which brings me to my next point, manual wipers, CM I know at some point one of your team will be trading this, this has been a request for the last 3 rally titles, in options, if we set the wipers to manual, they must be off at the start of a stage by default, only able to be used manually, not automatically set on.... please better co driver calls, please please please, not that they don’t do a good job, it’s that they just sound like they’re sat in a quiet room reading through the notes, I want a some urgency, adrenaline, between notes, some extra audio, push push push etc just a bit more realistic and creative? whatever the next game, NO MORE BUGGED TROPHIES, keep up the great racing CM, hope this helps 🙂

    Sunday Driver Trophy

    i Find I’m quicker with no assists anyway, more control over the car, I assume that’s it for trophies now for dr2? I wouldn’t mind more but only if they were rally based and were tied more to play time instead of beating unrealistic AI on hard, but I’m assuming season 4 is the final dlc
  9. The AI are a little op, but in the rain at certain events it’s doable, but the main issue is that the other heats (not including the player) the AI doesn’t scale down, so you can win all 4 heats and still not qualify because the AI heats were literally like 10 seconds faster, the AI is clearly quick at max diff but the heat your in they kinda rubber band around abouts to your speed, within a few secs but yea the AI only heats don’t so unless your at your best location in rain it’s not worth wasting your time

    Irish stages!! Please

    Irish stages would be awesome to see, if they can’t grab the licensing for the WRC maybe the BRC is something they could look into for DR3 hell yes to Corolla, and Celica GT4, wanted that for so long lol I miss the Quattro Sport as well, the S1 E2 is a beast but the Sport is nicer

    Codemasters I can’t believe how badly the multiplayer aspect of your games are, but this takes the cake, honestly, your clearly aware that like 80% of players in F1 public games are griefers and ram you off track every single race, so why you don’t allow custom RANKED lobbies where we can choose to race with Collisions OFF is beyond comprehension to me, then, to make matters worse... you can’t get the RULES right, and then you introduce a SAFETY RATING!!!! To which I RECIEVE PENALTIES for griefers ramming me up the rear, and seen to collect countless 3-5 sec penalties for overtaking CRASHED CARS 😂😂😂 which in turn lowers my safety rating and puts me in with all the griefers. Not getting the rules correct in the official licensed game is a farce in itself, I mean let me give you a proper example: il get pole then get rammed off into turn ONE in Italy and get pushed onto the slip road, which I then obviously have to take, except coming out of it will result in corner cutting penalties every time and more often than not a collision warning or collision penalty for someone ramming ME up the rear, leaving me with probably some damage, 8 secs of penalties and 10 positions lost while the griefers who literally just cut through the corner at full speed and took out half the players gets probably less than me in terms of punishment, ITS A JOKE, and you do NOTHING to resolve these issues, your not stupid you clearly know about this, at the very least allow us create our own ranked lobbies with full options, why do we have to play yours, 2018 won’t even let me server search like 2017 does, you seem to have a habit of going backwards Codeys and are renowned for not fixing clear issues, it’s probably why you only have a niche market, I’m assuming 2019 and so on will have these same problems left UNADDRESSED, it wasn’t so long ago I was in here begging you to fix DR2, I’ve lost all respect, I know what to except from your games every time now
  12. It’s Codemasters man, it will take them 2 months to fix issues from 2 months ago lol enjoy the long wait, half of it won’t even get fixed anyway, glad I’m done with the game now, got sick of waiting for core issues with the game to be fixed, looks like most people are still waiting too

    4 YEARS

    4 and still no patch for the hardest trophy in F1 2015, I’ve finished 5 races even came 1st in one and “Hard Times” will not unlock REALLY!!! lol F1 2018 is a shambles, DR2.0 is even worse, and what does the future of your company look like if all these broken games are common place, and worse, an expectable way of doing business for you, the fact is the team isn’t good enough to code games properly, and that’s so ironic seeing as your called Codemasters, none of you are masters of code by a mile it’s beyond a joke, I enjoy racers and you make decent ones this is true, but man are they hollow, so il be buying your games in the bargain bin from now on, best way to describe your games is ‘good qualities but poor quality’ please go hire some more competent staff seriously 😐 it’s clearly too much to ask you to fix your current games, not that they will be, not fully, so to simply fix 1 trophy in F1 2015 isn’t even worth asking but I’m more than happy to vent here about what I think about it 👎 thanks again CM..... thanks again
  14. Can’t find Germany in store on ps4

    DiRT Rally 2.0 Season Two content revealed

    The only rally content we get is 2 cars and Wales, I’m guessing you cut content so you could spend more time fixing the mess the game is in, there had better be a season 3 with Rally only content as an apology for 2 months of broken mess, poor communication with the customer, and all round bad decisions that come with the release of this title, and why is Germany not appearing on the store, have you forgotten to add it there or something because this is just getting pathetic now, the list of issues is growing immensely with each patch and STILL we’re waiting for the game breaking aspects to be fixed, I’m just left shaking my head
