    DiRT Rally 2.0 - V1.1 - found a bug? Post it here!

    It's the same as in previous DiRT games. AI cars seldom or never get cleaned up. I bet the sponsors wouldn't be happy. In reality the cars are pretty much always cleaned between each race. It really looks strange with AI cars heavily covered in mud after one race for the rest of the event.

    Remove Always Online for the Career!

    So, my WRX Championchip has just been reset. Why does it need to reset, when it just could use the last RaceNet save data (if it doesn't want to use local because of cheating or else)?

    Setting Up Cars Really Stinks

    Agreed! Even in reality teams can test their cars on roads or circuits. We need simple test area.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - V1.1 - found a bug? Post it here!

    Ok, not sure if really a bug. I have performance problems on WRX tracks. Sometimes FPS are dropping down to 40, sometimes even in the box. On Loheac for instance I am always getting FPS drops in the last two corners before finish. My system should be capable enough to get steady 60 FPS @ 1080p with ultra or at least high settings. i7-8700k ASRock Z370 Extreme 4 16GB DDR4 GTX 1080 SSD Win10 64bit So, I tried various settings on Loheac and when I disabled crowd completely during a race, my FPS got rock steady. But, all the crowd was still there. I couldn't see any difference. I switched the settings back and forth, but now visual difference. But the FPS were only solid with crowd switched to off. Only in the next race, the crowd was actually not there anymore, only some basic grandstands filled with grey crowd. But all the poeple standing at the track were gone. So, there are two things. First, crowd seem to have some heavy impact (on some systems). Second, although the crowd only disappears in the next race, there is already a positive effect when switching crowd off during a race. Seems like something is going on there.

    Vrally looks very gamey - visually. And again, the environment often looks more like straight out of a fantasy game.

    Unless they fix their stuttering mess, there is nothing to miss...

    Well, for any serious sim or even simcade title, a good sureface resolution is essential. Does anyone remember the last Test Drive titles? They had great environment, but the road surface was crazy low poly and driving on mountain roads was really no fun. You could literally feel (and see) each poly edge.

    Can someone tell them that cameras attached to a car (inside or outside) do no move independently from the car? These gopro cam views look totally weird.

    Did they cut at 0:56 to not show him crashing into the wall?

    Attend... ( he's still saying it) The jump looks a bit strange, like the car gets a boost while already in air. https://youtu.be/n9NM-wMIcP8

    Again, looks like input lag. And is seems like some stages are either even more bumpy than sweden in D4 or the cars have no working suspension. Cars wobbling over the bumps looks just strange. And they have copied codemaster old color palette. Some lighting effects do look nice. But the environment never looks realistic. It always looks a bit like visualizing some fairytale book. Oh, and that massive blue/purple fringing in the trees in Finland is just insane.

    Of course it's the same stage. It's a recreation of the real one. The stage streets are probably accurate, but their environmental content (especially trees) often do not represent reality.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Yeah, WRC titles have a reputation for the environment often looking like a fantasy world. With regards to the suspension not being able to handle the bumps, it was my thought too. In reality, these cars (the chassis) almost float above the surface very smooth and steady, while the suspension is doing its work. BTW, here is another crazy WRC 7 video. This guy can not even drive a few meters in straight line. He tries really hard. It's either very bad input lag or very bad steering setup. It looks undrivable. https://youtu.be/MbI8io323EM

    Ok, that makes more sense. But anyway, I would still like to see an option to enforce only generated stages for multiplayer events without being able to load stages into the event.

    What? So you are back at what we had in all the rally games before. Known stages for everyone, all the time? I am sorry, but that is completely against what the generator is all about. Sure, anyone can use the generator to get some nice preferred stages and go hotlapping. But for an online league, it is vital to go with unknown generated stages. Yes, we all know the tiles somehow, but there is still quite a difference between completely knowing a stage and just knowing the sections but without knowing the sequence. And in addition to that, there are still some differences in some tiles. For instance, the sharp hairpin in australia which flows into a T-intersection. Usually it follows the bend, but sometimes the stage continuous into the opposite direction which would be otherwise blocked with barricades. So you still have to listen and can't just hotlap every new generated stage.
