  1. I think obo deserves more credit for the highly technical write-up at his github page where the utility is located. What do you do as a living obo?
  2. Hello, English isn't my native language, I hope I can explain myself well enough for you to get the idea of what i'm trying to say. I sure would like to see what people do to be able to complete a race a minute faster than i can. I understand recording full input/replay can use a lot of space/bandwidth but i'm sure the "tick rate" could be lowered down for online replays. There is little feeling of community when you can't see how people race unless you watch on twitch. This game needs more features than just "nice graphics and racenet so you can compare times with other people". In addition, I'm not able to check the top times on each race i complete, i can only see the few results above and below my own. Surprising limitation, why do you even record times if people can't see the best/worst times on each track? -Seeing is believing St-Thomas
  3. Sure doesn't look like it helps the aerodynamic characteristics of the car :)

    Dirt Rally 2.0 - Fantastic game

    I like this game (engine/physics/environments) very much, bought the DLC after. I'm getting my money's worth for sure. There might be too much specularity (reflections) on some surfaces, like the grass in USA it looks like all the blades of grass are reflecting towards you. on the other hand, I think this franchise needs to evolve to have more "quality of life" improvements. I can't see the top times when i finish races, only those a few spots above and below me. I also can't see how many people participated into the said races to help me know how good or bad i'm doing. Can't see other people's replays or share car setups like forza did on xbox360 years ago. Some kind of voiced/scripted five minute rally crash course with small pauses and emphasis on technique would make getting into this game a lot easier for the uninitiated. Unfortunately game studios now have to walk the pace of release schedules, executives with tight wallets and a bunch of **** getting in the way of optimal, slower, more involved, well thought of development. 20 years ago hardware was changing so fast, programmers would have to learn how to program on new programming tools, languages everything. Now everything is more mature so they could actually take the time to make a new masterpiece. Back then a 7 year old pc with a newer gpu wouldn't play the newer game well. I have a 4820k @4.25ghz with a 1070ti and i'm getting great performance from it. What do you all think?
  5. Seconded. I have noticed the sluggishness of the control at high speed compared to wheel. Shouldn't have to resort to hack jobs like that, give the player control over his inputs IN-GAME! I'm still getting better times with controller at the moment because i haven't had my wheel for long.

    Upgrading Dirt 2.0 to deluxe version

    After contacting CM support they said contact STEAM. I opened a ticket on Steam on tuesday, after a few replies on each side here is the answer from STEAM support: Thank you for the followup. I am sorry for the confusion on our part. In looking at your account, I can confirm the DiRT Rally 2.0 - Deluxe Upgrade Store Package grants you access to: 1. DiRT Rally 2.0 - Citroen C4 Rally 2. DiRT Rally 2.0 - Deluxe Upgrade Store Package 3. Dirt Rally 2.0 - Early 5 Cars Gift Pack 4. Dirt Rally 2.0 - Porsche 911 RGT Rally Spec 5. Dirt Rally 2.0 - Season 1 6. DiRT Rally 2.0 - Skoda Fabia Rally 7. Dirt Rally 2.0 - Starter Upgrade Pack 8. Dirt Rally 2.0 - Season 2 (when released) Season 2 is included on the backend for your purchase but it won't show up in your DLC window at this time. I'm not sure how other Steam users are seeing Season 2 listed in their DLC windows already, but I tested with different packages of DiRT Rally 2.0 Deluxe Editions/Deluxe Upgrades and it's normal behavior for Season 2 to currently be hidden in those packages. It's likely Codemasters may choose to make Season 2 show up when the release date is closer. Please refer to the DiRT Rally 2.0 store page for the latest news and updates on this title. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with, but this is all the information we provide on Season 2 at this time. Best Regards, (Steam support)

    Upgrading Dirt 2.0 to deluxe version

    Thanks ChuKoNu I will be contacting support. Thanks also Riggs!
  8. Hello, Last night i purchased the Dirt Rally 2.0 upgrade to "Deluxe" package and a few additional things unlocked but had a Steam error message about content unlocking, which i stupidly clicked OK without reading what it said. Could someone compare my list with theirs just to make sure i'm not missing any content? I'll list them here: Citroen C4 Rally, Deluxe upgrade store package, Early 5 Cars Gift Pack, Season 1, Skoda Fabia Rally, Starter Upgrade Pack, Porsche 911 RGT Rally Spec. (don't see season 2?) The Steam store page says the Deluxe upgrade includes Season 2, should it be appearing in my item list or was there an error in my product activation? Am i missing anything else or is everything ok? What are the "high reward events" touted in the product page and how much better are the payouts for them compared to regular events? Thanks for the info to anyone who will take the time to read!
