    What do you miss from older Dirt games?

    In Colin McRae Rally 1 and 2.0 you could choose to play 1-4 people on local multiplayer, just choose a rally or stage and then you competed against each other on the same computer after each other...

    What happens with Rally Sweden?

    I like the snowbanks in Colin McRae Rally 2.0 :) just wanted to say that.

    From wheel to controller and back again

    I've been playing rally and racing games with wheel since Win95, played Rally Championship in the beginning and then got Colin McRae Rally and so on. Started with an Thrustmaster Formula T2 (google it 🙂) and have then owned several Logitech, Thrustmasters and MS Sidewinder wheels, my last one was an Logitech G25, bought it directly when it came out and it was at the time ridiculously expensive. I still think that Colin McRae Rally 2 is one of the best rally games of all time, the amount of time that I have spent with it is huge and sometimes I miss owning and old computer to run these games. But then came the time when I got tired of computer, and bought myself a console, first PS2 and then Xbox 360 and now Xbox One, I love the simplicity to just start the console and play a game without have to update 11 things and reboot the computer 13 times after that. I still play a lot of rally and racing games but used a controller instead. Well, now I bought a wheel again, a Thrustmaster TX and tested it during the weekend and wow it was fun, pure joy to get that immerse feeling again. It was very very very hard and guess it will be for a while to get used to again, used controller for several years now and my muscle memory still wants to use that 🙂 Been searching for good wheel settings to use in Dirt Rally 2.0, I don't have time to change settings for individual cars and so, I want a general setting that works OK, i mostly use Group A and 2000cc cars...any suggestions? If someone have good settings for Asseto Corsa or WRC8 I happily take them too 🙂 And last, thanks Codemasters for superb feeling in Monte Carlo!!! It's one of my favourite locations in all rallygames but I haven't been playing it much in Dirt Rally 2.0 because of how the automatic gearbox can't handle the ice sections (it's always gearing up to the highest gear when wheel starts to spin and kill the engine), can't use manual gearbox with the controller cause it's so weird. I don't have any goals of getting faster that I was with the controller (don't have so much time gaming as work, house and family with twins 1.5 years are taking a lot of time) as the thread the @PJTierney have but I will update in this thread with things I'm wondering of ore when aI update the wheel (will get the shifter and Sparco Wheel in the future).

    Said it before, the Volvo 240 should be in the game.

    DiRTy Car Wishlists!

    I'm hoping for the yellow MKIII Kit Car that Alistair McRae used instead of MKIV :)

    Creating custom championships

    While they are work on this, please make it possible to make an custom event with all stages in a country and then play the event with 1-4 people like the old CM games :)

    DiRTy Gossip

    Endless of hours playing CM2, even today I remember the perfect fealing of tarmac in a tight turn when you first doesn't feel nothing and then a lot of feedback when the tyres grip and you move forward.
  12. bjornwestergren

    Only 2 track conditions?

    Use custom championship instead, then you'll be giving all the options, takes a little longer but it's worth it.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 Car Setups

    Great setups, I'm always saving your setups now for my cars. I use controller on xbox one and using cockpit view, works very well!

    Favourite/Least favourite rallies?

    1. Sweden - My home rally and very fun, especially at night. Much improved since DR1. 2. Wales - Favourite rally from DR1, love the mud! 3. New Zealand - Awesome flow, like it in the rain. 4. New England - Muddy in rain, tricky with all the stones hidden beside the road so keep it tight. 5. Australia - Just doesn't know why but it's fun. Favourite country from CM1. 6. Germany - Hated it in DR1 but now it's a lot of fun with many hairpins. 7. Monte Carlo - Could be number two on this list but impossible do drive with auto gearbox as I do on my controller. 8. Poland - To fast with controller, will probably love it when I have a steering wheel again. 9. Spain - Nope, just hate it. 10. Argentina - Always terminal damaged...
  15. A few ideas that i have and would love to see be implemented in the game. 1. A two player possibility in custom events. Like the old Colin McRae games I would love a possibility to do an two or more player offline events when you have friends over. You choose which locations you want to run and the players choose which car they want to have and then run after each other on the same controller/wheel and a separate offline leatherboard (not Racenet) during the event. If someone crashes out they can continue the event with a time penalty or something like that. WRC 7 had something like that but with ghostcar and it wasn't good but Dirt Rally 1 and 2 hasn't anything like that. 2. A Swedish co-driver voice. Loved a mod back at Colin McRae 1 or 2 where a Swedish voice was recored by someone from Värmland! 3. Possibility to run with extra lights mounted in daylight. Love the look av them. 4. The ability to choose between RHD and LHD in cockpit view, everything feels wrong for me to drive a RHD a two of my favourite cars in the game, Ford Escort MKII and Opel Ascona B (as I own in real life) are that and "impossible" for me to use. 5. Volvo 240 and Volvo 940 added as cars. See pictures of very very popular rallycars in Scandinavia.
