    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

    Your probably right about this
  12. Shmeefly


    Yep they are systematically destroying the good will of their fan base, I’ve had a look around the forum after I realised there’s a new patch installing (v1.07) I couldn’t even find CMs patch notes, only one from back when Sweden was released, and within 5 minutes I recognise a new bug the patch has given us, I can’t view anyone above me in the leaderboards anymore, and if I scroll above I disappear from the list altogether, wow CM... wow I’ve just lost faith now No mention of fixing the HUGE list of issues I can find anywhere, no mention of fixing the game breaking issues like unbeatable AI in career, no mention of fixing the worst rain graphics ever seen to the point where we CANT SEE WHERE WERE GOING, nothing and this is apparently Codemasters official forums?? @ChristinaMc @Faya

    Look how good Dirt 4 looks in the heavy rain, I think even Dirt 3 looked better than Dirt Rally 😂 DR the raindrops on the windscreen we’re practically non existent, @ChristinaMc look at this, make DR2.0 look like D4 please, it was possible to see where I was going in H rain in the night too so it would be nice to sort that
  14. Shmeefly


    @Bobby1976 at least D4 actually had audio for driving through puddles, it’s non existent here, and even the 1 location which has a water splash written into the pace notes in USA has terrible visuals and audio, in terms of weather all round, audio, and the graphics on the windscreen D4 is leagues above DR2.0

    @Dominic0 what? No!!! I drive in life and rain looks nothing like what you see in this game, absolutely nothing 😂 it’s the worst rain I’ve seen in a game and I’ve seen rain look better in games 15 years ago, yea the light reflection is what they “tried” to capture but they failed, majorly, also I don’t know why people are comparing it to Driveclub, all we have to do is load up Dirt 4, the rain was perfect, and not only that, the graphicals on the windscreen were great too, in weather and with the mud and dust collection, literally their last game before this one they had it done well, and then they screw it up, I just don’t see how anyone can defend something that actually makes the game unplayable sometimes, and just looks aweful in general, really aweful
