    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Could you please be so kind to explain what you are meaning ? You did not know you need to re-configure it again because the hardware settings files are now different ? There should not be any change performance wise with the Oculus Rift. You need to re-configure the graphics settings. I did not try myself I still did not have the damn time ๐Ÿ˜ž

    Hi guys, I still did not have the time to try the 1.10 myself unfortunately. Anybody has some feedback to give about it ? Did you guys try it yet ? Thanks !

    I speak French (I am Italian but living with a French gf since many years) and I can say surprisingly enough the google translation is pretty accurate.

    I have a better idea. I am going to get into VR, spin up Dirt Rally 2.0 and spend the whole damn day (no kid today) racing with the 80s cars ๐Ÿ™‚

    "On the first stage of the 1986 Rally Portugal, Joaquim Santos lost control of his Ford RS200 while trying to avoid spectators on the road, crashing into a crowd of spectators, killing three and injuring over thirty" This one ? The complete list of accidents with the spectators is actually a lot tinier than what I was thinking. Still I guess this is WRC top of the top. On the lower leagues or amateurs there must have been a lot more.

    So safety improved at least a bit since the videos of Walter Rรถhrl in the 80s. In the video I posted you can see a crazy insane scene in which he is driving literally through people ... people are running out of the track just split seconds before the car arrives. Total madness and disrespect for life.

    I know it improved quite a bit but why are people still allowed there ? I mean we all agree humans excel in one thing. Being idiots and unpredictable. It is just too dangerous for them, for the drivers and for the sport itself. I really dont see the point.

    I understand perfectly the excitement and the adrenaline that you can get but is it really worth it the risk ? I mean even if you are totally careless (and fearless) about yourself if the driver smashes you with the car he will have to spend a full life knowing he killed a random "adrenaline junkie". Do you get what I mean mate ? Sometimes it is better to step back and choose safety for all instead of a shot of adrenaline. That's my humble opinion here of course I am not trying to convince anybody.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Guys I have one question that is bugging me since quite a bit and I find it unbelievable actually. Why are people allowed to stay on the sides of the rally tracks ? I mean it is insane one little mistake and the driver can smash dozens of spectators .. how is it possible this is allowed ? They should block all accesses and make sure nobody is within 100 meters from the track at least ! Why is this insanity still going on ? I mean what the hell watching the race on a screen is 1000 times better than risking your life just to see the cars going through the same single spot over and over. Plus you are going to destroy the existence of the driver that will have to live knowing he killed someone. It is stupidity at its best from both sides spectators and organizers. It would be very simple => Nobody that is not involved in the race can spectate. Only journalists and drones are allowed. End of the problem.

    Well man there is also this: Phil: "Right 6 very long .. 1 left tightens" .. BOOOOOOM There are some rally tracks where either you know the curves by heart or there is no way you dont crash. Because our beloved Phil forgets to tell you in advance about the harsh curve coming and does not tell you to slow down ... Thank you Phil !!! The coach builder loves you very much !

    Broadcast Mode: Added ability to use Trackside cameras. Added ability to select a specific player to spectate and follow through multiple Stages/Races. Made numerous minor improvements and bug fixes. @PJTierney I am sorry for the dumb question man .. but what is Broadcast mode ? When do you use it ? Where do I find this in the game ? Thanks man ! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Bella vez ! Si si la pratica e' l'unica via. Quando ho cominciato facevo pena ora miglioro sempre di piu'. Il mio problema principale e' il tempo .. tra lavoro, cinna, donna e sgobbo non mi resta moltissimo tempo .. ma appena posso sono li a tirarci di brutto ๐Ÿ˜„

    Ma quanto sei forte Alex ? Io faccio un po' fatica (anche se riesco) a vincere in Pro in Rally. Non oso nemmeno immaginare se giocassi alla massima difficolta' ... prenderei tipo 3 ore ๐Ÿ˜„ Translation: How strong are you Alex ? I am facing troubles (even if in the end I manage) to win a Rally in level Pro. I cannot even imagine what would happen if I would try the maximum difficulty .. they would give me like 3 hours gap ! ๐Ÿ™‚

    "Technically most "for Rally Only" tires are not legal for street use, but there are unwritten exceptions like when you are getting to or from a stage. You don't want to use rally tires as your daily driver tire though. They are absolute **** on pavement. I mean noisy, squirmy and unsafe at highway speeds. The softer compound ones will disappear after a few hundred miles on pavement (they disappear after a few hundred miles on gravel too). I don't know what it's like in Florida, but up here in rally country most rally teams have stacks of tires that are too worn for stage rally, but are perfect for fooling around or rallyX. Most teams will sell them very cheap, or even give them away in exchange for some support. If you decide to go another route - I've got BFGoodrich Traction TA's on my Forester. They are quite adequate for pavement and not bad at all for gravel." I have seen this in a forum do you agree with that guys ? I mean really rally tires are unsuitable for normal driving ?
