  1. I have been having this error all day. Unable to log in. I'm watching @FusionJohn racing on Twitch and this is bugging the hell out of me.
  2. Haven't posted any videos over here lately, because I've been working on a special one about Dirt Rally 2, Rally racing, and life. Give it a watch if you would and let me know what you think. Big shout out to @PJTierney for his constant assistance and encouragement to new DR 2/Rally sim drivers.
  3. I originally bought PC Dirt Rally 2.0 on the MS/Xbox store, but there were problems with the DLC. So I returned the XBox version, got a refund and purchased the Steam version and it plays great. (I posted about this mess in the forums here) However, in the time I had the MS/XBox version, I apparently entered an event in the Official Dirt Rally 2.0 Club under the MS/XBox "platform," and now I can't access the event, since I don't have that "version" any longer. The event reads: "This event is already in progress on this RaceNet account via another linked platform. Once an event has be
  4. Driving through stages on the weekly challenge in Sweden, I was having a really difficult time distinguishing where the road stopped and the snow began in some areas (sunny mid-morning? sun). After suffering terminal damage (126 mph into a pile of logs) on stage 7, I figured it might be a good piece of extra to offer some kind of snow glasses, or a filter that would knock back some of the glare off the snow.
  5. I've had some really good runs in Sweden. The "snow bumpers" help me stay on the road
  6. Tell me someone has done impersonations of famous people as co-drivers - Morgan Freeman, Bob Dylan, Sean Connery, etc. I have to see that.
  7. I have to say that every location I've raced so far (haven't gotten to Greece) has been gorgeous, but Scotland was a nasty brute the first time I rode through it and I still couldn't help but catch a glance at the well-rendered trees. Which reminds me of Finland. The NPCs in Finland at night make the drive special.
  8. Because there's so much stuff to race through! What would be funny would be to get Sean Connery or Craig Ferguson to do a couple of special Scotland co-driver calls. That would be DLC I'd paid good money for!
  9. I already joined the official Codemasters club, but I'm looking to expand to more online interaction with other racers. I admit, I gave up after about 15 pages of clubs with 1 member in the DR2 "find a club" listing before giving up. Other than platform and controller, I can't see a good way to find clubs that I might reasonably enjoy as a new sim racer. These are some characteristics I'm hoping to find. Maybe someone can recommend some clubs or point me somewhere to a more categorical (and current) list. Mostly Stage Rally only Accepting of beginners, different platforms, diffe
  10. I just went through Scotland again and was reminded of one of the early lessons I learned the hard way: Whatever you do, stay out of the ditches in Scotland. (said in a gruff Scottish accent)
  11. I've been able to turn off everything but the progress bar and the instrument cluster, which I use because I have a hard time seeing which gear is in use on some of the dashboards. I tried getting rid of the progress bar, but I think it made my paranoia about screwing up the stage even worse! I'll probably try it again in a couple days. Getting a gear shifting pattern and a bit better understanding of braking has helped my confidence some. I have to admit, sometimes the co-driver's tone of voice is just out of context, like he's really excited that there's a Right 3 Left 6 up ahead! That
  12. I had to learn how to drive a shift stick in a church parking lot after I'd purchased my friend's Mazda 323 before I could drive it to work the day of. He let me have it for $500 because it's all I could afford. Great little car, like this one except sort of brown/tan.
  13. I'm assuming this would be where I could post my progress notes, so here goes for the past week or so

    • Finished some Monthly Challenges and Weekly Challenges.
    • Got more familiar with the H2 (FWD), R2 and R5 groups.
    • Avoiding all RWD groups and really high power groups until I'm better at driving.
    • Made a decent run at the Daily Challenge H2FWD Australia stage in a Golf GTI 16V.
    • Made it through a brutal stage in New England in a Fiesta R5 MKII, giving me a great screenshot to serve as the official rally car mascot of EBR. :)
    • Working on integrating tuning setups into the race flow. Trying to learn to use sim racing wheel with 540 rotation.
    • Learning how to navigate through all the useful information spread across the Internet.


  14. I think I saw someone mention an add-on or something that would keep your telemetry in DR2 in a thread here, but now I can't find it. My question is somewhat related, and maybe I'm an idiot for not finding it yet, but where can I find my results from all the races I've done? I see them flash by at the end of each stage and event, but not sure where they'd be collected so I can look back on them? Thanks.
  15. Now that I'm getting a bit more comfortable with all the other things one has to manage on stage, I've begun to notice more how the setups make subtle differences. I had the same experience switching from semi-manual transmission to manual sequential - The difference in control was astonishing. I may not have immediately cut seconds off my time, but I knew this was how I was going to cut seconds off my time. ;)
