    DiRTy Gossip about WRC8

    I don' t wanna make a new thread so I just put it here. Could there be small chance that Paul Rustchynsky/Slightly Mad Studios are doing a rally game? Could it be exclusive for the new console if that ever happens. https://twitter.com/rushy33
  2. So we have a fantastic new rally game. This time Codemasters got right most important thing, driving. They hired Jon Armstrong and Ryan Champion (who might be a "silent" hero with the handling of the older cars) and it paid off. They delivered the authentic and more nuanced handling model they were talking about. Pretty soon after Dirt 4 released I stopped playing it, because I didn't like the driving (there were some good cars). It doesn't matter even if game would be otherwise perfect: stages, graphics, no bugs etc. Just not interested playing it. For Dirt Rally 2.0 the development time wasn't that much longer than between dirt rally and dirt 4. Lot of people thought dirt 4 was rushed. Codemasters is gonna release games at fast pace no matter what. There are some bugs in the game (dr2). Of course I would like that there would be zero bugs. As a console (peasant) player on ps4 pro and xbox one x most of my gaming has been bug free. I don't know is there more problems on pc. On ps4 pro graphics are ok and also you never know if they prefer let's say some higher refresh rate physics than improving graphics. FFB is big problem for a lot people, deal breaker for some (maybe not playing at all) and patch is taking surprisingly long time. I hope there is 2 ffb presets(original, new) or that you can just add the effects for what we have now (if you want). I'm puzzled by the big drama (although I took part in little drama myself) that's going on twitter and forums, maybe not so much here but in other forums, because this time vs dirt 4 ,handling is good/stages good, everything else can be fixed. They are now even doing patches and looking into ffb. Obviously there should be more communication. That's all. Those were some wierd random points. These are just my opinions. Let's enjoy this great game!

    I think highly popular Sébastien Loeb Rally has the best tarmac in a rally game (or maybe rbr modded but haven't tried for a while).

    I don't like tarmac, feels like car slides too easily even on dry, though would be very surprised if they change it.

    Dirt Rally 2.0 - Fantastic game

    They are saying that they currently working on game 'blurriness' so maybe it will be fixed next patch. Dirt rally sharpness would be good but higher resolution would be of course even better for 4k tvs.

    Dirt Rally 2.0 - Fantastic game

    Night time I saw tearing couple of times, maybe that' s worse case. If there is no extras vs ps4 then it's not that good, atleast 1440p (in good contidions, no rain) should be possible.

    Dirt Rally 2.0 - Fantastic game

    Yes, I believe his feedback helped greatly, just somebody forgot to raise hand when there was a question: could anybody want any other effects to the wheel.
  9. Joe289

    Do you want the FFB fixed?

    "We know we need to strike a fine balance between the large number of players who are happy with the FFB, and those of you who want an experience closer to the original DiRT Rally." -Christina 2 ffb presets, original and updated. Why would you try to repeat same mistake?

    Cars grip after patch?

    LOL! All of this might be related to "no grip bug". I thought no grip bug was literally no grip and didn't pay attention, my cars always moved forward at almost normal speeds. I'm experiencing what you see in this video. It just comes and goes. For now gonna add some brake deadzone and go with the flow!

    In my opinion FFB is now, as it is better than in Dirt Rally. Jumping from game to game for me it's much more important to feel weight of the cars (as in Dirt Rally 2.0) than the cars feeling pretty much weightless and feeling super high detail on the road. Dr2 driving feels really enjoyable. Still surprised there isn't optional/canned effects for those, who like to feel thru wheel, effects what you might feel in a car(tyre slip etc.). I guess it will be fixed and FFB will be even better covering all the bases. I always thought that with a wheel Sébastien Loeb Rally was underappreciated. Now the funny thing is that etc r5 fiesta feels very similar (ffb and driving)in dr2 and slr. Slr is closer to dr2 than dr is. Other one helped by Sébastien Loeb and other by Jon Armstrong (+other drivers). Just some thoughts.

    Cars grip after patch?

    Here we go again. I think that game after all might be swiching between your settings and default settings. I notice this because I use suspension 150 tyre slip 150 ps4, sometimes vibration just goes much lighter and it might take lot of restore defaults and putting your settings before it gets back to stronger. That's why you would feel difference in driving if you use let's say steering linearity 10. Monte Carlo is great fun!

    After patch 1.05 ps4 handling just works, no fiddling or anything. Xbox one too!

    Patch 1.05 for ps4 is available now! No patch notes just the usual text.

    Cars grip after patch?

    No I'm not the same guy. I now have different experience than J89. Maybe he can't get the settings reset. If you read my earlier posts, dashboard trick is only get somehow settings to reset. Some settings bug, maybe there are other ways also, just seems to be working every time. I would not maybe believe either that something was going on if I didn't expirience it myself. What is my point here is that it would be unfortunate if maybe some of the players would play little different game. For tbtstt: Try this what I wrote before and see if you can feel difference. I notice it on every car but maybe first new zealand/heavy rain subaru nr4 and ford escort. Also using suspension 150 tyre slip 150 (100 100 xbox) makes it easier to notice.

    Cars grip after patch?

    I use default settings except steering sensitivity 45, suspension 150, tyre slip 150, but use your own settings. Feels same as before patch (no new patch). Of course for comparison drive while without doing the thing.

    Cars grip after patch?

    Try this in case you feel some weirdness still in the game. Take any car any stage and drive in dashboard cam as long you feel the driving suddenly feeling better, more natural. After this you can use any view. This works for ps4 and xbox one (controller). If you close the game you have to do this again. I think this is what was going on. Great game!

    Cars grip after patch?

    In a world of hardcore rally sim with a controller you really have to know that the car is behaving EXACTLY like real rally car would. When I do my usual surprisingly low quality driving and turn in-game wheel 1,25 degrees car should match real life behavior, otherwise it's not worth it.

    Cars grip after patch?

    In custom I tried Argentina stage with Peugeot 205 t16 and in shakedown I tried all the tyre compounds. Suddenly it just felt like before. I know it doesn' t make any sense! 😃

    Cars grip after patch?

    This wasn't a placebo effect. For whatever reason I played the game with a different handling couple of days. I hope those other guys get it working also. Now it's fun again. I'm on "your" side. I hope this game sells 5 million copies, so we can get great rally games also in the future!
  22. Joe289

    Cars grip after patch?

    Something mysterious is going on because now the game feels great again and same as before (this for ps4 and xbox)! It started to feel normal after changing tyre compounds, might some weird bug or just coincidence. Or maybe they changed something on server side because noticed this just before daily was ending. Anyway enjoying rally again!

    Cars grip after patch?

    No not the same person. Have been following these forums long time. Now had post because it is ruining game a bit on a controller. Try it and see what you think.
  24. Before this patch controller handling on ps4 and xbox one felt like best handling of rally game ever on controller! Now after patch controller handling feels different( grip change, some controller aid?) Cars now have less weight feeling and generally driving feels much easier. You can brake really easily and super fast. Group B cars specially feel like tamed down, brutality and danger is gone. Feels like you can just cruise around. I would greatly appreciate some feedback! Edit: This has been fixed and game feels great again!

    Cars grip after patch?

    Now I played bit more with ps4 controller and I have agree with the OP. Something has been done to controller handling. Is it more grip or some handling aid or is it to make it easier for new players, I don't know. You can notice this easily with Group B cars, they now feel tamed down, brutality and danger is gone, you can just cruise around. Also weight of the cars is almost gone, braking is much easier and faster.
