    WRC 9

    You forgot to mention Racenet, which is literally crippling the majority of DR 2.0s main design. For a company whose networth is ridiculously high, Racenet is down multiple times a week.
  2. Racenet down yet AGAIN. This is getting really old for a 9 month old game that I paid $120 for.
  3. It's Thursday, and all day I've been having problems starting games in a Online Lobby, as the stages just keep continually loading for me and everyone gets booted a minute or so after. Also been having problems playing Clubs / Leagues as I get an error screen. I'm also not the only one dealing with this issue. Another day, another RaceNet issue. Here's hoping it works this weekend. - Steam Deluxe Version + Seasons 3 & 4 - i78700K, NVIDIA EVGA 1080TI SC Black Edition, 32GB 3200mHz RAM, M.2 eSata SSD, Logitech G29 - Oculus Rift CV1 - Windows 10 - Not sure what my blood type is

    VR FAQ & Performance

    More VR thoughts: Noticed that the crowds have a HUGE performance hit when turned on to low or any other setting other than being set to OFF. When set to off, my headroom opens up 20% or more. I don't know if it's just the New England stages, but sometimes my lights blink on and off 3 times then shut off for a second, and repeats for most of the stage. While spectating the newly released Peugeot Rally 2000s car, I can hear nothing but constant redlining in first gear. Night levels are really ugly, and seemingly have an 8 bit color palette. Also, when the lights are shut off, you can see a strange iridescent glow on the roads. Chromatic Aberation has been turned off. The lights also don't seem to illuminate that much at all. Sweden is very problematic and looks extremely washed out. It's hard to see the details in the road. Stages with heavy rain clutter the windshield so badly that it's hard to see through the extremely digital looking water droplets. I can understand it being that way on the side windows of the car, but the windshield is so obfuscated in comparison to playing on a monitor / TV that it's almost headache inducing. Phil's seemingly animated at 40 FPS, along with the windshield wipers, steering wheel, and the in-game model of your character. Shouldn't these be animating at the same frame rate as our refresh rate on our headsets? This is also the same when playing on a monitor that's 60Hz, 120Hz and 144Hz capable. Dialing in seat position is extremely limited, you can only move several inches. It would be better if the positions could be set much more drastically, as every car's wheel position is quite different. hardware: i78700K EVGA 1080TI SC Black Edition PC3200 DDR4 RAM 32GB M.2 SATA SSD Logitech G29 with H-Pattern Shifter Oculus Rift CV1
  5. They clearly do not care, as PJ said that they don't have anyone who works on the weekends or outside of office time. Meaning that they'll only care about fixing something Monday through Friday 9-5 UK time. My service provider lets me know when I need to restart a server or when there are issues and I can fix it with my phone. The fact that they are still using the same terrible service provider 8 months after launch is an indication of their standards and lack of concern for the community. This game should have clearly been marketed with the tagline: Enjoy your game Monday through Friday 9am-5pm UK time, best of luck outside of those hours to enjoy the game you paid $120 for.
  6. RaceNet down yet again. This **** is unacceptable for the amount of money you're charging for the game. Why in the world can't get you guys get a better service provider? Even your website is having issues. Some of us only have time to play on the weekends, and for the past 8 months since the release of this game, we've all had to put up with this. What is it going to take, CM, for you to FIX your service?

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Version 1.9 VR Feedback

    Would be incredibly helpful for there to be a better option for screen mirroring in VR (with Oculus SDK), i.e. combining both eyes, instead of having each eye being rendered separately on the mirror screen. The menu screen is very washed out, and opening it in game is even worse. Either have the screen rendered closer or increase text size. Fixing the drivers seat position is incredibly strange from car to car. You sit up awfully high in the Lancia Delta S4 and can't lower the seating position at all, and for most cars it's really hard to get the steering wheel lowered enough. It would be great if you could make more "extreme" adjustments. When using the center VR position button it sits you unrealistically close to the wheel. It would be great if it kept your actual seating position and centered the view, rather than resetting everything. Other than the things I mentioned, things seem to be pretty nice using the Oculus SDK via STEAM.
  8. I'd love all of them, but I'd prefer a new engine that's optimized for realistic lengths of current rally locations. Give me Mexico, Turkey, Corsica, Germany (non-Panzerplatte locations), Chile, Sardegna, Portugal, and more of Monte Carlo. While I'm not expecting the full 215 miles of Tour De Corse, it would be nice to have at least a 1/4 of each of these locations. I'd gladly pay a gnarly premium price for all of that, sans modding capabilities.

    The Pacenotes Thread

    Step up and make videos with better notes then.

    Please review the co driver on dirt rally 2.0

    I switched over to the German co-driver to see if they were better, and I was thoroughly disappointed. Also realized there's 0 mention of "kinks" where there are a ton, especially in Poland, that could be incredibly handy, and very few mentions of "braking" when going into turns or hairpins.

    Please review the co driver on dirt rally 2.0

    The calls in this game are abysmal, and the fact that they simplified it even more so that n00bs could understand really ruins the immersion. There's zero use of the term acute, too many 1 Right (or Left) Tightens that are nothing more than hairpins, uses the term "caution" but never explains what to be cautious of, mentions of long turns that are not long at all, mentions "keep in" before jumps which should be called "6 over crest". What's worse of all is that there is no plus or minus use in this game. Bloody hell.
  12. The dairy company I used to do IT work for has a 24/7 based IT system and their net worth is just 20% of CM's net worth. Just so I can state this again to make things blatantly obvious, a small dairy company in the middle of nowhere USA has a more reliable IT staff & infrastructure than CM and make nowhere near the amount of money that CM does. I guess CM's priorities are clear, i.e. "Give me $90 for an unreliable product." I honestly don't know what's worse here. The fact that there's no IT services available for the weekend (when I can reset servers on my iPhone) or the “I really don't care, do u?” attitude about the massive amount of unsportsmanlike cuts that are egregiously littered throughout the entire game, effecting every stage, rendering leaderboard times completely useless. I guess I should just be thankful and buy the Super Deluxe Uber Edition of DR2.0, because you seemingly can't afford to care about anything at this point. Not even an official statement on your twitter account and it's past 8 a.m. in the UK right now.
  13. I do not see an apology in that reply by PJ Tierney, and of course they don't have anyone working during the weekends to make sure that the DRM service is up. Disgusting. He can't even say a simple, "we're sorry for the problems." That's some woefully inept PR work right there. They're bringing in millions of dollars to the company, but they don't want to make sure that their infrastructure is solid by having one IT guy employed on staff to work the weekends. That is completely unacceptable for a corporation of their stature.
  14. This is beyond embarrassing, CM. Seriously. Not only do I get kicked from my own online championships today (I also witnessed 14 people having the same issue in our Discord) but now I lost all of my credits, cars and career mode progression. $90 NOT WELL SPENT. And you want another $30 for Season 3 and 4? There are MOBILE apps that have better implemented DRM and online services than your company. Couple that with your lack of respect for sportsmanship and the community with your inability to address the copious problems with the ridiculous amount of cuts (let's just call it off-roading) in every country, you're really coming off as a money grubbing company right now. To think that I've defended your position for being the only decent Rally game out there just makes me sick.
