    You aren't in a championship are you i.e race 2 or 3?


    The first race the car is gleaming the next races in the mini championship carry over the damage you done on your first. Check to see if you have clean car on the first race 👍

    Hi Torque, No im afraid not, Progressive damage through rounds would be cool, I like it in Dirt 2.0. But in both career and free play in the first race the cars always look really roughed up all over and it really looks silly I think and takes away from the aesthetics of the car itself. I do hope it is a glitch.

  2. As the title asks, I noticed every pre race cut scene the cars look trashed. Just the paint work and livery though. Is this intentional or a glitch? I personally really don't like it as it ruins the aesthetic appeal for me, Its the whole car covered in big scratches etc. I knows it an arcade racer but I still like to race cleanly and admire the cars, The already trashed look is really off putting. Anyone else bothered by this or just lil old me? 🙂

    There's a bug on Greece when playing during daytime (clear) where the brightness of every car's lights (headlights, brake lights and in-car gear counter) are very dim. On some cars, it is impossible to see the gear counter!?page=2

    Noticed the same issue in Greece on daytime clear, Can't see the led gear counter in cockpit view with certain cars. Notably the Polo R5, Fabia R5, 2007 Impreza, Citroen C4 and 1995 Impreza. Fairly certain more cars are affected as well. Just tried Greece on sunset cloudy and can see the gear display so I am assuming it is limited to daytime setting. On Xbox 1 X.

    Hi @PJTierney

    There's a bug on Greece when playing during daytime where the brightness of every car's lights (headlights, brake lights and in-car gear counter) are very dim. On some cars, it is impossible to see the gear counter!

    The brake lights in Greece


    The brake lights in Germany


    Noticed this as well, any car with an led gear display in cockpit view is too dark or can't be seen at all.

  5. Love this game and really glad Greece is back, It looks great. However I noticed almost immediately that the gears in cockpit view are not displaying in the Polo R5 or seem really dark and have noticed it with the Fabia R5 and 2007 Impreza also. Has anyone else noticed this? I should say I have tried other cars with no issues so it seems to be limited to certain cars.

  6. Got mine on Xbox earlier. I love the new cars, Really glad the C4 has an official livery this time round. Hated not having any liveries for it in DR. That said the McRae fabia is an instant hit for me, So much fun to drive 😁 Can anyone please tell me what the red ring on the steering wheel is for, I thought possibly a man-seq gear shifter? Nice work Codies, Love this game!

  7. This game is addictive! More satisfying than ever before when your in the groove flying along stages. I was supposed to come off it hours ago after being on it most of the day as well and 1 last rally has been... well many more. So good! Free play is awesome and the difficulty slider is a great addition. 👍

    Full means you will be experiencing the worst possible degradation. 

    Authentic will give you whatever your road position allows. Far back will be degraded, far in front will be better. First few loose though. 

    Optimal gives you perfect conditions. 

    Cheers 👍 So if I want the most realistic sim experience I assume authentic is best option then? I have just left it at default on full so far but was beggining to wonder more the more familiar I become with the game.

  9. Was wondering if any you kind gents could please explain to me the difference between “full” and “authentic” options on the surface degradation setting. As I would have thought they were one and the same? Any help appreciated. 👍

    At the start of your stage it tells you the running order. Check out how many (in your class) are running before you. The split time for sectors during the stage only take account of those who ran before you. This is why you saw a discrepancy. If you were last in running order you’d see everyone’s times during the stage. If you were first you’d only see your own time and all sectors would be green even if the majority beat you.

    Cheers! Much appreciated! 👍

  11. If someone could please enlighten me here it would be much appreciated.... I love rallying but am not very clued up on the technical side, so I am confused by the rally stage/split times, so I have noticed a few times now but for example I just finished a rally and as I cross the finish it says 20 secs highlighted in green. Then it says I win so I assume that was the gap, but then the result board says I won by 10 secs, so a bit confused 😕

    Hey all!

    So DR2.0 has had a rocky start with the Racenet issues and FFB complaints, both valid in their own right and there are multiple posts and threads on both this forum and Reddit which cover these negative aspects. CM are well aware and we don't need more threads about it.

    That aside, lets talk about the things that DR2.0 does damn well.

    The rest of the game itself is great and the best rally game we have ever gotten. The vehicle handling is the best there has been in any rally game, the physics have really been nailed (although tarmac could do with a little more work) and the stages and RX tracks look great. Rally stage lengths are now also longer and more detailed than ever before and the stage degradation is really cool.

    This thread is purely for some appreciation of the good work that's gone into this game and when the issues are fixed, I hope everyone who refunded jumps back in and we can all get some multiplayer lobbies going and be friends!

    (Any comments about the FFB or Racenet will be personally downvoted so be warned!)

    I was just about to start a topic focusing on everything positive about the game and noticed yours 👍 I was at first pre-occupied with the whole online career scenario, But past that, due credit to Codies this game is fantastic! Great physics, great presentation and awesome attention to detail. I love that it feels more like DR but also keeps some of the smaller introductions from D4 like virtual wheel rotation and service parks. I mostly play freeplay and with a pad so I love the introduction of the new F1 style difficulty slider. The bespoke stages feel and look amazing and the cars are more satisfying to drive than ever before. I especially love the Polo R5 as the Polo WRC was my favourite in DR but again like the first game every car feels unique and fun to drive in their own way. A more than worthy successor to DR. 👏

  13. Sorry in advance if slightly off topic but was wondering if anyone could please enlighten me on the GT4 rally cars. I remember seeing the first gameplay of the rally mustang and had a raised eyebrow, having now driven it in game its a lot of fun as well as the other cars but I cant find any info on these GT4 rally cars. Are they legit rally cars? 

  14. Noticed the credits in game earlier. Fair enough they are trying but I seriously struggle to believe that anyone at Codies could ever have believed the online career would go down well with fans or was ever even necessary? Not to mention the fact it was kept very quite before release. I fundamentally dont agree with single player games that insist the player must be connected at all times and never thought Codies would adopt this approach. I love the game no doubt about it. Its awesome, fantastic, brilliant and a lot of other good words and I bet a lot of hard work went into it. But this online career debacle has left a bad taste in my mouth. I do love freeplay and aslong as I can play that and access future dlc when I dont have an internet connection. I wont complain. But if this online singleplayer approach is par for the course now, sadly it will be my last Codies title which would be such a shame because they make such great games.

  15. Hi all, 

    I dont always have an internet connection, So career mode may be a no go for me. However With that said I love the game, It is everything I had hoped for and free play is brilliant. But I was wondering if anyone from Codies can confirm that freeplay will always be accessible with out an internet connection? Also I was worried about any future DLC having bought the deluxe edition, Will I be able to access and play DLC in free play without an internet connection? Any help is appreciated thank you.
