  1. That challenge is also bugged... I have two out of three fastest laps already counted, I did a three laps race with Sergio Perez yesterday, won, did the fastest lap on lap 3 and crossed the line on 0% battery. I did not get the Monza achievement and neither the Battery one. I play on PS4 with a pad but I did not get some achievements even while playing with a wheel.
  2. I can confirm this is not exclusive to PC as I tried to do the same, getting pole position and win in Mexico with George Russell, multiple times on PS4 and I never got the challenges. I also finished a race with 0% battery multiple times but that one didn't pop either, so it's not exclusive to Week 8. I am sure I was online and connected because I got the due XP for completing a race but I never got the XP for the challenges.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    This isn't much of a Gossip, but I just wanted to really say thank you to the devs of this game. For context, my good old pedal set from the Thrustmaster T300 recently did a Maverick Viñales: the brake pedal snapped in half as I was approaching Turn 1 in Hungary on F1 2020, therefore I've had to go back to my roots and play all racing games with a pad. To my surprise, the only game which allows me to drive without making an utter fool of myself is the one that also offer the most stuff I could crash into: DiRT Rally 2.0 I mean, in all the circuit racing games the worst thing I could manage to crash into is a barrier or my teammate, and I inevitably crash into one of them EACH RACE. DiRT, on the other hand, gives me a plethora of hard stuff to bend my car around, and still the gamepad controls are so good that I don't. Well, I don't crash more than I did with the wheel, that is. This is all to say, thank you guys❤️

    Okay, great to know. And since the Mk2 has the proper audio, great to hear too...

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    The Mk.8 Fiesta has always been a weird one for me, at least in its Rally versions... sometimes I really like them, sometimes I feel like there's something not quite right. Might be because I absolutely loved the Mk.7 Fiesta WRC post-facelift. Although I have to say, the new Fiesta R5 looks a lot better than the current Fiesta WRC, might be the headlights. I have a question though, do I need to have Playstation Plus to access the World Series?

    I find the Polish landscape to tear up pretty much anything I drive there. Expecially front bumpers and radiators, but doors too sometimes

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    The current cars are MAD and I absolutely love them, I was mainly talking about the current state of the Championship. We must also consider that COVID-19 will surely not do well to the finances of teams and that in 2022 the current cars will be replaced by Rally1 cars that are supposed to be more economical but also less advanced.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Oh my, I had actually forgotten how it felt to read good news in 2020... Glad Codies finally get the recognition they deserve, the best rally games developers really deserve a shot at WRC! WRC isn't in its best state right now but there will be a rule change in 2022 with the hybrids coming in and potentially more manufacturers interested in the series (one can hope). As for the title, I think that DiRT Rally is actually a better brand name than WRC in rally games so I guess they'll keep it in some sort of way because it is more appealing. After all, the two best rally games of the decade were called DiRT Rally.

    Exactly. DiRT Rally 2.0 is by far the best rally game I've ever played, but it isn't exactly pick-up-and-play. On the other hand, older DiRT games like 2/3 are a lot of fun with friends because they're immensely easier to play (mainly due to the wider and easier stages I'd say) and everyone can have fun.

    Introducing DiRT Rollers

    I'm very disappointed. How are we expected to tackle stages that are going uphill with marbles? All DiRT games don't have enough stages, if we can only race downhill the mileage is SOOO poor... No buy 4 me. Also, will it have VR? We're in 2020, it is UNACCEPTABLE that you would release such a game without giving the players a fully immersive experience. I NEED to be able to wear a headset while playing, rolling along the marble until I get seasick on my couch!

    Scotland has immediately taken the spot of wrecking yard from Finland, at least for me. The margin for error in those stages is NON-EXISTENT. It must be so satisfying to get a stage right, I imagine (I have no clue because I keep sending it into a tree)

    Colin McRae: FLAT OUT Pack

    Okay, driving in Scotland is BEYOND scary. There are so many things I can crash into that my mind gets confused and can't choose which is the most dangerous and imminent obstacle into which I could crash. Needless to say, this actually does cause me to crash into the nearest log/ditch/rock/tree/log-pile available. And there are A LOT in those stages...

    17,570 GB update will be quickly downloaded by my connection in 56 hours approximately. I love my internet connection. It still somehow manages to work when I'm watching lessons online even though I'm falling asleep, but the Impreza S4 it can't download.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    The 03-04 Focus WRC was a vastly different project compared to the previous model so I don't think they would license it as the exact same car. Ok, the base still was the same generation of Focus but internally there was a lot of work done

    And in general some connection to the ERC would be great to have in a following game
  16. The thing with snow stages is, the general layout of the stage stays the same but the width and even the severity of the corners depend on how much snow is outside of the road and how the road has been dug into the snow. In recent years the WRC has seen less snow in Sweden and this made the stages wider and faster than those in DR2, at least in my opinion

    Colin McRae: FLAT OUT Pack

    I hope it releases as planned as staying at home and playing it is one of the few things I'm still allowed to do... I live in Northern Italy. I mean, I'd stay at home anyways but having two new SUBARUs to play is definitely a pro

    Tell that to Carlos Sainz... (or even better, Luis Moya)

    JEN'S BACK! To be fair to them, the restrictor actually WAS 34mm in diameter. It just happened to move about a bit while in the car...

    The gap between Henri Toivonen and Timo Salonen, first and second place in the 1986 Montecarlo Rally, was 4 minutes and 4 seconds. Third place Hannu Mikkola 3 minutes further behind. 2020 Montecarlo Rally, Neuville won by 12.6 seconds over Ogier, who edged out Evans by 1.7 seconds. The new WRCars may not be as raw as the Gr.B, but they require so much more precision and pure speed to win a rally that I don't think they're easier. They require different skills

    The fact that you even THOUGHT to be the only one with a celeb crush on Aniston amazes me. (besides, I never thought I'd see Friends' GIFS in the Gossip Thread but I guess nothing is impossible here)

    THIS. DR2 is definitely easier than its predecessor, but it is so because the handling has become a lot more predictable when the wheels are lifted off the ground or the car hits something. It feels as if the cars now have weight, as they should do
  23. carpa

    Colin McRae: FLAT OUT Pack

    I actually think the handling has improved in DR2, what do you feel was a step back from DR1?

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    The studded tyres are losing all the spikes while they run on gravel so when they get to the more icy/snowy sections (as that one seemed to be) they have very low grip. This could be another reason

    The haze in Finland is the ultimate sign that the EGO engine is currently pushed beyond its limits...
