    Found 3 more bugs with Rallycross:

    2. When I repair my RX car, than my car is also clean again. But the AI cars aren't clean. This looks really strange that I am the only clean car and that all other cars are dirty.

    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.

  2. I just made it through Rallycross career. I finished Master level - with zero points.

    Besides the AI being super fast and hyper aggressive, the calculated AI cheats compared to those who drive actually with me in the four qualification races. Meaning the calculated AI is 10 - 20 seconds faster (depends on the track) than the driving AI. So I was never able to get into the semifinals, allthough I won quite a lot qualification races.

  3. I just noticed that replays are different in test mode and actual racing, at least for rallycross.

    My praise written above was after several testing laps (choose any car and there is an option to testdrive it). Testing WRX cars happens always on Montalegre. So I did a good amount of laps there in test mode. Today I noticed that the replay after a race uses a different set of cameras, incl. 2 or 3 onboard cams every lap, even though I choose trackside only cams.

    Is this a bug?
    Cameras in test mode are a lot better. 

  4. Yes, especially when you consider the amount of plain liveries or when you see that some liveries are actually done with the previous livery creator.

    You know, if they didnt't had the time to do more interesting and detailed liveries, they could have easily asked the community. They could have provided us with the sponsors they are allowed to use.

  5. Seriously, they are pretty much perfect. There is even some variation per lap.

    Angles, focal length, placement, depth of field, duration... Really really good.
    No switching to onboard. Just pure TV style and also some very nice moments to catch the great sound design.

    Now, if you can update the other circuits to this standard, that would be great.
    The other WRX tracks have some bugs where the camera just suddenly stops to a standstill and sometimes use long onboard cams.

  6. Quote

    Your My Team Rallycross Championchip has been reset, because a discrepancy between local and RaceNet save data was detected.

    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)?

  7. This is in career mode, don't know how they are doing in custom events.

    In lower tiers, the AI is generally slow, but behaves somewhat decent.
    But in 1600 class on Holjes, they tent to weave left right and deliberatly drive into me when I am trying to pass. A few times they went off track and when they tried to go back they deliberatly crashed into me, almost in a 90° angle. All, while I was going a wide line to pass and giving them enough space to reenter the track. They behaved like online crash kids!
    In RX Lites class (only on Loheac) they constantly crash into me from behind into the first turn. They simply shove me of the track - every time.

    And then comes Supercar class, where the AI is not only super fast, but also highly aggressive, basically ignoring me all the time and pushing me into barriers etc.

  8. 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.
    ASRock Z370 Extreme 4
    16GB DDR4
    GTX 1080
    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.

  9. If all this is true and was done almost 25 years ago, then why is no one else doing it today, where we have x-times the processing power and for sure a hell of a lot more knowledge and experience. Many many racing and rally titles have been done in the past 25 years. Surely, devs have not become dumber since then.
    Or were the devs of RBR all savants?
