  1. Wow. The problem with this dumb, childish argument (aside from the fact that you're whining about what you perceive legitimate complaints to be, which is apparently whining. The irony.) is that it's like the game was called Dirt Rally and Some Dumb Seal Stuff 2.0. The ball physics genuinely need a lot of work, though you goofuses seem to be experts on how they should handle, and people pointing out that it seems like we'll have to wait for 3.0 to even get new seals or have them behave realistically have valid concerns. I'm glad you lot can just rip $60/80/100+ in half and then laugh at people who, for some strange reason, selfishly want the seal and ball to represent the real thing in some way. The fact that World Rally & Some Dumb Seal Stuff 8 is siphoning so many players away really says a lot about not only their commitment to the bare minimum level of realism, but the fact that the couple awesome people who work there that want to see the ability to adjust Tyre Friction and Ball Friction and have the FFB (Force Feedball) behave realistically is at odds with the dumb corporate structure and perceived attitude of "Who cares that we promised X or said we would be working on Y further, this is just the first step, the game is what it is unless we can make money off it. We can't/won't be bothered to address any of this. Maybe we'll fix it in the neeeeext one though ; D" I friggin love Codemasters E> and will forever appreciate them making Dirt Rally 1. But the way 2.0 is turning out to be, and how easily it could BE AMAZING is way more frustrating than if they had just made a garbage game like WRC 1-7 or Dirt 4
  2. Hi guys, I apologize for making a post generally similar to the one I did somewhat recently. But among all of the things I'm sure you're working on atm, us wheel users (those of us with g920's at least) still don't have settings such as Wheel & Tire Friction that PC players have had for....years now, that I was prayin would make it into DR2. I mean, I love love love the Dirt Rally games. Unfortunately there's no other way to play a rally sim, without having to sacrifice graphics, usability, and/or the ease of use and breadth of content. So I'm a bit stuck, and that brings me back to the ffb. I know from PC that lowering the Wheel Friction can improve the info you receive, lower the amount you have to fight the effects in frustration, and let you increase, ie, Self Aligning Torque so you can finally fight the wheel, and the stage, and car like Odin intended : D Oh, and lowering Tyre Friction would maybe make it possible for me to straighten out the wheel after gently correcting a huge lurid slide without somehow inexplicably causing that minimal amount of steerin wheel nudging to either fling me off into the weeds as if i had instead bounced the wheel off the lockstops in the opposite direction, pirate-style....or have to rip my wheel clean off the old table it's attached to. Which I've seen withstand not only my pitbull (moose) Jack launching himself onto it, but 2 grown human beings falling into it (I was definitely wasn't one of em ;] ). Yet lil old Dirt Rally 2 is too much for it, haha. I'm in a bind, is my point. This game is fantastic, but regardless of stages n cars added (thank you for Wales and the Porsche E>), a little tweak to allow us the option to simply alter the same parameters as our PC brethren would be amazing. Please and thank you, for everything! I'm typing this entirely on a Click N Type onscreen keyboard btw, because my keyboard can't swim for whatever reason, clicking on each letter individually. This took like 45 minutes to type out lmao, just to give ya some idea how important this is to me. Cheers!

    Logitech G920 lacking FFB settings on Xbox

    Wow....this is, almost a deal breaker. I googled all over and never found this answer. That would explain it. So I'm stuck having to jack up self aligning torque, nearly breaking the table to which my wheel is affixed, while anytime the FFB is not active I can spin the thing around like a numb, useless pirate ship wheel. Orrrrr I can spend 500 or so dollars on a gaming computer. I'm heartbroken to learn this. I preordered the most expensive edition. Only time I've ever done so. Thanks codies. I watched as you made dirt 4 and either didn't listen to the community or simply refused/weren't allowed to fix the fact that, say, you can turn a powerful rwd car all the way to the right at a dead standstill, floor the clutch and the gas, sidestep the clutch and....glug, understeer, grip, no slide no nothing, and I was willing to give the benefit of the doubt because of how good the games you make are. Even though you guys did say "oh it'll be just like dirt rally, except with a bunch more content : D I won't cry and say I'll boycott and that you'll never see another dollar from me. It doesn't make a difference and I still appreciate that you made the game. Besides, you already have my money, and I have no choice there are no alternative games. Thanks for answering my question. This is sad, and unfortunate
  4. Hello all, first post here. I can't take it anymore. I loooove this game, and there's no acceptable alternative sim to it. I have an Xbox One (OG, not the S or X), and my wheel works just fine on both that and PC. Assetto Corsa Forza 7 Dirt Rally 1 etc etc all sing along smoothly. However, both Dirt Rally 1 and 2 do not have the Tyre Friction or Wheel Friction settings in the menu. They do on the PC versions, but Dirt Rally 2 won't run on my pc sadly. They're not greyed out, they're simply not there. Massively strange. Here is a screenshot. I really hope this can be fixed or answered, and my hope that an update would fix it has not come to fruition. I don't understand, and it's very weird. But aside from this issue my gripes with this game are so minor. Lack of liveries and a couple other tiny things like the ffb and how when the car slides I counter steer a tiny bit, about 5 degrees, and then the car jacks itself around as if I'd slammed the wheel off the lockstops. Bit like forza's sim handling. It's so close to a perfect rally game for me however, and I've looked forward to calling it home for a long time now. Hopefully someone can help. Thank you very much, for making a game for the enthusiasts, when you guys could just choose to churn out regular Dirt titles so kids who think Forza is too hard can rip around with all of the assists on, but you don't. You make games for true petrolheads : )
