  1. That sounds like a router problem, had it myself with COD MW. Game kept saying I had a strict  NAT type and could hardly connect to anyone.

    If you drop customer support a email they should be able to give you a list of ports to open in you're router that should help with the problem.

    This can be fun with people that is not good in English...

    You: how is that weather?
    Race engineer: .....
    You: HOW IS THAT WEATHER?!
    race engineer:.....
    you: HOW IS THAT F*** WE....''Crashes out of the race''


    This made me chuckle.

    You're in an open cockpit F1 car... you can't just take a look around and see for yourself if it's raining or not?  :)

    Same here. I either get the error 41, or the screen that says preparing to launch keeps cycling. I have re-installed it twice.

    I more than meet the recommended requirements.
    AMD FX8370
    8 Gigs ram
    AMD R9 270 
    Windows 7 64 bit
    I'd suggest sending custserv@codemasters.com and email with your rig spec, they'll most likely ask for some more info but they should be able to help get you running.
    Thanks. I don't know what I did to make it work, but it works now. I uninstalled and reinstalled again after my last post and it at least runs now. I can't get into full screen though, it crashes every time I try. But at least it's playable now.


    Might sound like a silly idea, but have you checked the game resolution is the same as your desktop resolution? had problems with games crashing before because of that.


    Assetto corsa for one...


  4. Also does Logitech wheels work on ps4 games, I have g25, but not tryed it on ps4
    Unfortunately, no. And it doesn't look promising. Thankfully Fanatec seems to be actively trying, Logitech threw us all under the bus on consoles.

    Last I seen from Logitech was "we're working on it" sometime last November... but no, it doesn't look good.

  5. Been hanging around here for a week or so looking for some news and see a lot of people upset at the lack of information. I'm led to believe information would be released soon after F1 2014, with a release of F1 2015 at the START of the F1 season.

    Now granted, the first race of the new season has come and gone and no news has been released but has anyone thought how long Codemasters consider the "start of the season" to be?

    If we say every F1 season has a start, a middle and a end... and this season has 19 races then the "start" of the season could be the first 6 races of the year. This would take the release date anytime up to the 24th May. Now if we look at the release of GAS, correct me if I'm wrong but from announcement to launch was only a month? 

    So as long as they announce something and release by 24th of May, they haven't lied to or miss informed us?


    Just something to think about, I'll get my coat now :)

    Doesn't EA still own the rights to Porsche?
    Yeah, if you want to put a Porsche in your game you have to sub licence it from them. That's why you usually get RUF's in most games
    So a definite no go for the Tuthill Porsche in the next installment of DiRT then..? :( 

    That might actually fall under the same ruling as the RUF sub licence?

    Are Car Throttle being paid to talk up the new Seb Loeb game?...

    http://www.carthrottle.com/post/milestone-and-sbastien-loeb-create-exciting-new-rally-game-for-2015/#loggedin

    ...crap article, particularly the segment where they list several circuit cars as cars in the game. Oh and "while the rest of the world was losing faith in the DiRT franchise"? What little they know...  ;) 
    My favourite quote:
    We can at least expect the Audi R8 LMS Ultra, Citroën C-Elysée WTCC and Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars to show up in the game.

    I'm no motorsport and car specialist, but I don't think the above cars are made for rally or rallycross...
    Yeah... i'm not to sure the people at Car Throttle know much about rally or rallycross if they think those cars are for off road use.

  10. Hi @SlimCharles, welcome to the forum.

    Can I ask you to go to options/controls then select "choose Preset" (should be 3rd option down) you should have two options at this point "keyboard or "Logic3 usb wheel)" make sure you have your wheel selected as the default controller,. this should then allow you to go into the advanced wheel settings and change the dead zone.

    Hope this helps.

    Never thought I would see another Dirt game ;D Been around since the first Colin Mcrae Rally and still own one. 

    I feel like alot of people have said this but less arcade and more rally? I'm guessing that it will be too much to ask for because the game would be too hard and not pleasing to non-simmers. There are more or less only arcade like rally games and the WRC games started off bad and gone worse. 


    You will be pleasantly surprised then ;)
    Sadly I'm not easily pleased or surprised because there can always be more ;)

    I'd like to see punctures, tire changes  during stages, different tire choices and tire wear etc. Perhaps car damage problems and fixes before next stage? Driving is not the only thing which matters during a SS. Would be nice to see some SSS as well.

    Feel like the car is the most important thing. Doesn't really matter what other fancy stuff are implemented if it's unplayable. Some one has to finally make a rally game that can get close to one that is almost 11 years old. 


    I still play the one that is near 11 years old, I've played all the Colin McRae's/ Dirt's and I've had a sneak peek at this one.

    I think they might just surprise you this time...


  12. I don't see it as competition as such, just more games to play :)

    I'm sure I'll have my favourite but until I play them all I cant say which one it will be.


    Accetto Corsa (already own)

    Pcars (pre ordered today)

    Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo

    New WRC game?

    New Dirt game?

    Wife's going to kill me the amount of games I'll be buying, But fun times for the driving nut!!

    EDIT: Ohhh and me and Paul had a meeting with some people about a thing which I can't talk about but... no I can't talk about it sorry :P

    Well that's gossip right their!

    I wonder what the thing is...and how the meeting went?


    Gossip away...

    Still no one got any gossip on this?

    OK I'll start. I think Ken Block has dumped EA and signed a gymkhana licence with codemasters! Because we all love gymkhana.

    No? Haha.
