    Lighting and shadows downgrade on foliage

    It's hard to stomach the downgrade when some of us can run the game easily with better looking trees/vegetation. I can't stand these cartoony/cardboard looking trees.

    Lighting and shadows downgrade on foliage

    Trees didn't look good in 2019 either, but 2020 they are horrible. The tracks and cars look good, but man... some corner-cutting has been made. Not a fan, not gonna buy 2020.
  3. The rest of the game looks good to me, but trees and view distance are dumbed down majorly because of splitscreen I'm guessing. https://i1.lensdump.com/i/jYYbYD.jpg Seriously ruins the immersion, Codies still struggle so badly with trees!

    WRC 9

    I hope the game feels good on high refresh monitors. WRC8 never quite felt right. Other than that, I really liked WRC8. Has rumble trigger support too which Dirt still doesn't. Finland and Sweden better be the 'old' locations to get some love, man Finland has been bad in WRC games for so long now. Looking forward to the new locations.

    Inconsistent dashcam

    edit: nevermind, deleted all cam files and now it's fixed. Don't remember ever modding them...
  6. It's just a stupid art decision. The whole game is overly bloomy and bright. Kinda the opposite of the original, they went too far with the distance fogging.
  7. The game lacks sense of speed, especially inside the car.

    WRC 9

    In the triggers, yes. Regular rumble works.

    WRC 9

    There are many things I prefer in WRC8, and some I don't. Rumble trigger support works, yet somehow not in DR2.0 because it's not DX12? Well, neither is WRC8. Weather and time of day, tarmac, sense of speed, stages (for the most part) are miles ahead of DR2.0 for me. The best stages in DR2.0 are remasters, that's really sad. Even then, they kind of lost their soul and look off due to the weather or time of day choices. Extreme brightness is the order of the day for DR2.0 The massive BUT, is that WRC8 does not feel good on high refresh monitors/gsync. It just never feels smooth no matter what I try.

    Greece SS DR1 vs DR2.0

    Please stop blinding us with bloomy skies and cloud Dirt 2.0. How about some clear skies? Or some proper overcast skies? Man, WRC is miles ahead in weather and time options.

    Things WRC8 does better

    Do you have dynamic FOV on? Maybe that's it, I have it off.

    Things WRC8 does better

    - sense of speed, glaringly obvious when going back to Dirt Rally how slow it seems. - tarmac handling is much more fun in WRC8. Tarmac stages are awesome too... - Modern WRC cars are just a lot of fun and noticeably quicker/nimbler than the R5's - The test area puts Dirt to shame, so much to explore and heaps of variation. - You pick the stage and you get straight into the stage, no waiting around for the pre-stage sequence and useless pre-stage notes. The whole menu process is so quick and it remembers it all - no post-stage comments from co-driver - co driver voice, while not amazing... still sounds like he's actually reading through an intercom - not sitting down for story time. Wish Dirt would make it sound a bit more realistic.

    Dashcam/Rumble triggers

    Great, though t-cam should replace dashcam on formula cars. Now just rumble triggers please codies.
  14. Not a bash thread, just things that I'd like to see from WRC8 that aren't really in DR2.0 - Much more realistic colour palette, Codies seem to favour the bright and colourful approach https://imgur.com/a/jTRwgR6 - Way more weather/time options. Dirt really struggles here, in WRC you can get actual clear skies, actual overcast skies and everything else. Dirt is very stylised, seems aimed at taking fancy screenshots. - Dashcam (coming to DR2.0 finally) - Haptic feedback - Long stages, especially the new ones - are great and offer something different to Dirt. Of course, there are things Dirt does much better too. Anything else to add for people who have tried both?
