    Difficulty settings for Career mode

    open, club, pro, elite, master. == very easy, easy, normal, hard, very hard.
  2. 682/5000 I have a slightly smaller request, in addition to my already requested HDR support on the PC. Can you add thunder and lighting strikes to the current weather? It does not have to be a hurricane or something like that. But it would be much nicer and more impressive if you hear a thunder here or there or see a lightning (strike). Especially in current situations, for example when you see distant dark clouds that arrive while you are facing the sunset or when driving in heavy rain etc. This could also make a surprise moment, in which there are, for example occasionally a loud thunder that drowns everything or a closer / brighter lightning strike. All in all, that would be only 2-5 sound effects and a bit of play with the light - the rest is already in the game. e: Lightning strikes do not have to be directly on the roadway, so you do not have to change anything about it. No broken or charring trees etc.

    Ranking and website

    Your monitor should also have some settings. But well, however... This already proofs how much improvements some people could get while some have almost non improvement for specific reasons. Even one good guy with these improvements would be enough to destroy the upper ranking like any other cheater on steam. I'm no noob, I've also many many hours played. But the thing is that you can't implement your experience here. See it from a more noobish view, not from a view of someone with hundreds of hours in all the past dirt games and other racers. 90-98% of todays players are casuals. That's in almost all games the case. So even if it doesn't affect the top 10 or top 100, it still affects other people. And these ranks shouldn't be so worthless. Btw some locations are also darker than others. All in all there are many factors which affect many people. And that's the reason why I'm not really interested in rankings.

    Ranking and website

    Sure, there is no speed assist but you can get much more trouble without all the assists. That's why they are called assists. Many people would fall down the rankings without their assists. At least in the first few times. Only 5seconds difference for a night drive with maximum gamma and a drive with car lights or even no lights. I don't know your screen settings but, nope... Never if it's adjusted correct and not anyway too bright. (what's the next well-known problem)

    The Pacenotes Thread

    If you drive 20km/h then it's more like a recce. That's ideal to check if the pace notes are wrong. And late is not wrong, it's late or you are too slow. Depends on the view. But yeah, I see where it ends. Only your opinion is the correct way. Like all the 5 is 4 and and 4 is 3. Why is the 4 a 3 and not a 4? How about get used to it and understand that a 4 is a 4, a 5 a 5 and so on, not 5 is 4, 4 is 3, 3 is 2. The angle etc also matters. Just get used to this single number, if you think it's wrong, instead of complaining that every number should be lowered by one. Just my opinion...

    only for codemasters dev

    You should compare the same tracks or at least parts of them. At least for Germany i can say that it fits very well. Apart from the ground type differences, which should actually trigger some pretty strong tire wear. This is one of the key points of Baumholder / Panzerplatte in the WRC. In DR2 you notice, apart from a few vibrations, unfortunately, no difference or even a greater wear. (Normally you should think twice about whether soft tires will survive 3 stages in a row or not.) The shakes/bumps etc also depends on your used tuning. Panzerplatte... Look how well it fits:

    Ranking and website

    Normally they have a racenet website, but it has no dirt game listed. But if they ever plan something like this officially, then I would say, that it appears there. Btw: These rankings are mostly totally useless. There are many guys who increase the gamma level in game for night drives. Then it looks like a modern night vision and they see everything while the true/fair drivers have a dark night, maybe without any light from their car because of a previous crash. That's such a huge difference. Then it's mixed with drive assists and non-assists etc etc etc First they should separate some things.

    DiRT Rally 2.0: Seasons 3 & 4

    The description of the deluxe edition clearly mentions since day 1 that you get the content of the season 1 and season 2. A year has 4 seasons. Spring, summer, autumn, winter. If you look at the dlc calendars you will notice that 2 seasons are valid for a half year. So yeah, they are meant as real seasons and you have to pay for the additional 2 seasons. Btw: Wouldn't be surprised if we get more seasons for a second year with new stuff. It's like a games as service. And no one is forced to buy complete seasons or to buy these for a regular price. For example: buy the most important things at release and buy the rest during a sale or never. But never forget: it's additional content. Doesn't matter if it's something from a older game or brand new. That's why we have the choice.

    DiRTy Gossip about WRC8

    Please don't forget that 30% is the market standard. Be it Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Ubisoft, EA or who else. They all want their 20-30%(mostly 30%) for the distribution of your game. But yep, it's the reason why everyone has his own store. There is simply no reason why you should throw all the money to steam when you could distribute it by yourself. (sure, apart of the fanboys)

    The Pacenotes Thread

    Co driver works fine in German. And yeah, I drove each location with about 20km/h to check it. Just don't get confused.

    HDR support (PC)

    Please add HDR support for the PC version of Dirt Rally 2.0. We wait for 6 months now... Even VR got its release. There is really nothing that speaks against HDR for the PC version. The OS supports it; The user screens supports it; Your console version supports it; And it's a standard option nowadays. Be it Tomb Raider, Hitman, Resident Evil, Battlefield, Crackdown or whatever... They all support HDR on PC for a long time because their console version does it too and there is no reason to avoid the pc version regarding HDR. (btw: most people are using the same screens as console users) And for some people: No, it's not HDR if you play in window mode. That's just the adjustable SDR picture of win10's HDR Mode. No HDR data, no HDR picture.
  12. Most people would be helped if you change the damn code for the crowd. This was already in DR 1 and D4 only optimized for AMD cards, which is why Nvidia users should change this option to 'LOW'. (There isn't much visible difference, especially while driving - 'LOW' is important) In terms of frame rate, it's like day and night. (But don't turn them off completely, because technically you still have a invisible crowd you can drive into) The card doesn't matter as long as it is a nvidia card, be it with a 960 4G and a old i5 CPU or with a RTX2070 and a new i7, it's the same well-known problem with the crowd - and various DR 1 tutorials have already taken this up - and it's still the case. And because some like to underestimate this option. The crowd is not just at the beginning, the end and the U-turns. They stand every few meters in the woods, hills, between the houses etc. Actually, they are almost everywhere. Their code is so bad that it really matters. Attention: The last update did a reset on this option! You have to set it back to low. The game bar tips are ****. It sounds like a windows hate train. If you want to disable something then disable the windows background recording.

    Difficult to see on Sweden

    This! Sun together with snow, dust and/or fog can be awful, but that's just natural. And you get used to it, if you find your focus on the road. Also try the difference with and without car light. (This can be a huge difference for locations like Argentinia with its dusty road. It's not that extreme in Sweden, but you can also notice a difference.) e: I would like to see that rarely in Monte. (Monte had this years almost more falling snow than Sweden)

    Game looks washed in DX12 HDR mode

    The PC version has no HDR support. Let me guess... You play in windowed mode and HDR enabled in windows. What you see there is the adjusted SDR picture for HDR mode. You can adjust it in the windows HDR settings. (ppl believe it works for so many games and than they complain about it) True HDR always needs HDR data. No HDR signal no HDR picture. And as I've said, the PC version of DR 2.0 has still no HDR support. Seems it was more important to add VR. That's the reason why it looks different but worse than the default SDR picture.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 Roadbook - June 7, 2019

    PC has no HDR. That's the next problem. And just for some people out there, because it's almost a kind of myth: No, you also get no HDR, if you play in the exclusive full screen or window mode. In that case, you will only see the SDR content which can be adjusted in Windows settings for enabled Windows HDR mode. This mode does not render SDR content to HDR content. This requires game settings and DR 2.0 has no HDR Option on PC, simply because it's disabled on this platform. In other words: It would need HDR data, but the game sends SDR data on PC because the dev has disabled it for this version. It's really annoying, but sadly a fact.
