    Those guys are gonna catch a cold....

    Mabey you guys should update the models for the mechanics in the service park, that looks like really cold working conditions XD

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - v1.3 - found a bug? Post it here!

    oh, does the marshall have a collision box? I thought the game reset you to stationary when you are about to run him over.

    Small bug: this keeps happening sometimes, I finish a stage with no damage on my car, but when I load into the next stage the car suddenly has a dent in its bonnet. it's usually cosmetic damage but it's a little bit annoying.

    Wheelspin Gearing in Auto?

    I think I'll rest my case. Driving with a manual gearbox in Dirt Rally 2.0 turns out to be much more fun I thought it was. It will take some getting use to tho, I'm currently all over the place trying gear manually XD

    Wheelspin Gearing in Auto?

    yea I would say it a bug. it might relate to the way Codemasters program the gear changing in the Auto box (I'm not a programmer, so I can't tell how exactly it works.) but oddly enough it doesn't change the gear ratio of the transmission when the wheels are spinning. it only reacts like this on Snow/Ice as far as I know (Monte Carlo is the only example of this type of surface so far.) the auto box seems to behave normally on all other types of surfaces, staying in gear until the car is actually moving forward. I do hope somebody at Codemasters sees this, as the random gearing makes the already challenging task of racing on snow, or under constantly changing grip levels needlessly complicated. Of course, I know I can swap to the Manual Gearbox, but I'm currently using a PS4 controller which doesn't make it intuitive to be changing gears. For that reason, I prefer to use the Auto box.

    Wheelspin Gearing in Auto?

    problem is tho if you want to drift on the snow to get around corners more efficiently, you need to spin your wheels to create traction on the snow, it's not a problem with how I drive. in real life you would stay in a low gear while cornering, and only change up when you are leaving or have left the corner. also, the fact that the auto box changes gears when you hit a patch of snow or ice will throw off the balance of the car in an unnatural way, and in worst case throw you into the wall.

    Wheelspin Gearing in Auto?

    yes, but it's not a real automatic gearbox is it. it's a Manual Gearbox and you tell the game to change the gears for you, that's what automatic transmission means in a game.

    Wheelspin Gearing in Auto?

    Hi There seems to be a problem with the Automatic Transmission in Monte Carlo. When spinning your wheels trying to get traction on the snow the auto transmission will start changing up through the gears like crazy, also when entering a corner on the snow the auto transmission doesn't want to change down, what's that all about? This is also a problem when hitting a patch of snow further down the stage, where the Auto Transmission will suddenly chang up for no reason. It seems like the Auto Gears want to change gears when the car is spinning its wheels resulting in the car being in the wrong gear all the time on snow.

    Mechanical Damage?

    hmm, seems like there is mechanical damage is working then. I personally think that durability is a bit high on the car after crashes, and those part failures should occur after one or two crashes, and not after what I assume is many crashes across multiple stages. But I dunno, maybe I'm just to good at keeping my car in running order at the service areas to notice any part failures.

    Mechanical Damage?

    yea its a shame that that's the case, the mechanical damage was better in Dirt Rally 1 and even in Dirt 4.
  11. TheNorwegianPhantom

    Mechanical Damage?

    ok, but then the durability on the cars is way to high. in real world damage like radiators borking and steering alignment damage can happen in one crash like it did in Dirt Rally 1. I agree that there should be more of a gap between the Services.

    Mechanical Damage?

    well, then my game is just not giving me mechanical damage for some reason, I should know I end up in the trees and fences enough.

    Mechanical Damage?

    well, that does sound like mechanical damage. I've never had that happen to me, maybe something in the settings of my game that's keeping me from getting mechanical damage, but I've looked all around the options menus and I've never come across any option to turn that on or off, so I don't know.

    Mechanical Damage?

    Hi I've been enjoying your game so far but there is something that I find odd. I've got hardcore damage turned on, but the car never seems to develop mechanical damage. Things like engine overheating, steering damage, brake failures o.s.v. things that would become a nuisance for completing a stage. When you return to the service park, the game will often tell you that you have a borked radiator, broken suspension, engine damage, but this never seems to have an effect during the stage. The only mechanical damage that happens as far as I can tell is headlights breaking and punctures, other mechanical damage never seems to happen to my car or to the ai cars. is this an oversight from you guys, or do I have something in my game settings that are stopping this from happening?
