    Introducing DiRT Rollers

    Still would be a better game than DiRT Showdown.... 😂
  3. Well, the moral of that story is, don't drink and drive kids... Car was a basket case after the first 2 stages, then I threw it in a gully on stage 4.
  4. Was hoping for a top 10 finish. Not put a prolonged amount of time into DiRT in well over a year so happy with 11th that I'm currently in. Lets see if that's were I end up 🤣 Going try and commit to the whole season and hopefully improve as the season continues.
  5. I'll need to try a smoother driving approach. I ran hards for both long legs of the rally and they were absolutely done by the time I got to both services. I also find the softs puncture to easily when I hit the edges of the stage. I do that a lot 🤣
  6. Quick question, very rusty these days. I'm assuming the only safe place to quit the game is in the service parks? leaving after a stage will cause a disqualification? Marathon of an event, having to get used to hards. Must still be over driving them as they are still done after 3 stages
  7. Having a issue with the original Fanatec usb handbrake. It has been working fine up until now. With it configured as I've always had it, the car wont move, I can accelerate and change gears but the car never moves from the start line. Once I unbind it in the options, the car will behave as normal. Any ideas? Edit: Also, when I bind the handbrake to it, it now shows up as a steering axis (I get the picture of a steering wheel next to it) rather than axis x

    Original Fanatec handbrake

    Just had a quick check on RBR, it does indeed look like the hand brake unit needs a strip and clean... what a POS this thing is. I think I'll get it working and punt it on... Thanks for the info!
  9. I need to try find more time to play... only managed 3 stages
  10. I did finish, although the car was pretty beat up and had no power left 😂

    Hello all, Codemasters newbie here!

    Congrats! Was surprised to hear Christina was leaving, but happy to see the job going to a community member! Now. Once you get settled in and sorted... we need to a have a long chat about the iconic Vauxhall Nova and its lack of appearance in the DiRT franchise....

    Any chance to get a new GRID/TOCA game?

    I normally hide out in the DiRT section, but I also enjoy a good Grid game. Would be pretty cool to have something new in the series to play. At the moment, GT Sport is my go to game for track racing.

    Could be they fixed the ice and snowy parts of the track this time, so you can't just go flat out over these sections anymore. Please let this be true!

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

    The Escort now has the correct "solid" back axle. You can't adjust rear camber or toe on the real version either, so probably not a bug.

    Unfortunately, we can't comment on specifics. Only allowed general statements. ?

    Handling is always very subjective. Some will love it, some will hate it. A few will come here and shout at each other about it trying to convince each other they are right, and the other is wrong. It's all fairly pointless. If it's fun, play it. If not, don't :)

    The minimum specs aren't that demanding and should be pretty well optimised.

    That's not a NASA computer. My pc is 3+ years old and meets all that beside CPU.

    Last time an American rally made the wrc was in the 80's https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olympus_Rally if the game is basing all stages on real roads, could this be a contender?  What is the most iconic rally in America at the moment?

    He said in the livestream that the techniques used for driving the real car were the same as driving them in this game suggesting it's very close to the real thing indeed. Can't remember at which point he talks about it but if you skip to where he joins the guys on the sofa you'll find it. I don't think he said the "techniques" were the same.  He was asked what was more difficult. Driving a rally car in real life, or in game. He said they were both about the same level of difficulty now. He also added that it requires the same effort to pitch the escort the way you want as in real life. So one can assume he's suggesting they handle very similarly. Well in that case... Move over Sébastien Ogier, I've arrived :sunglasses: :D
