    DiRTy Gossip Thread

    Won't play RX content at all - but still stoked to be getting Wales the 037 and the 911. Can't wait!

    Please Unlock DLC cars for modding

  3. IMO it's the hope that kills you. Clearer communication on what is and isn't being looked at / worked on would be a great improvement.

    Please Unlock DLC cars for modding

    yes please x2
  5. Unfortunately we currently can't use community liveries for DLC cars. We can't unpack the .nefs, and it also appears the folder method doesn't work for DLC cars either, using DiRT 4 models (until we get confirmation otherwise). This rules out the whole 2000cc class 😢 We can replace the whole .nefs with a D4 model but that breaks the game. Hoping we get some support from CM here.

    Favourite stage in the game?

    New Zealand 100% - picking a single stage is difficult, but I'll tip Waimarama Point Forward over Ocean Beach purely due to the speed / flow / technical variation and scenery - although arguably I smile the most snapping from lock to lock over the flowing cambered corners of Ocean Beach. I had fears that New Zealand wouldn't live up to what I hoped it would be - but it really is an absolute joy to drive. I really really hope it's a must have location in future DiRT games - the wait to get it back from CMR1 in 1998 was insane.
  7. Yea using nefs edit method in D4 will break stuff. You could just extract the pssg from his nefs file using nefseditor and then use the folder method tho

    One area of concern for me is how disconnects are being managed. My PC just BSOD on the first stage of the NZ weekly, and after restarting and loading back into the event I'm dumped on Stage 2 with a ten minute penalty. Really?? There's not a lot of point in continuing with the event. Maybe if I could easily compare stage times through a Crest alternative I might be motivated to continue.... I really hope when Clubs drops that event organisers are able to choose how disconnects are managed in their events.... Otherwise those of us without rock solid stable PCs will be at the mercy of fate. DR managed this perfectly fine. I'd rather re-run several stages than be out of the event immediately due to a massive time penalty!!

    Yea it would be a Club only solution but that's fine from my point of view. I'm willing to accept the risk for Monthly online events, as all I'm going to lose is a few credits - there's a lot more investment in community run Club events personally.

    An example of how this could be managed without a blanket 10 minute penalty for clubs: Revert to the DR approach - if you disconnect, you are forced to resume from the last checkpoint set by the organisers. Re-run times should be highlighted on event tables - so event organisers (at least) can see that a time wasn't original and has been re-run. Provide event organisers with the simple ability to disqualify individuals from the event / championship. It's then my responsibility as a participant to provide evidence of that crash - a simple exercise of flicking through a crash report. This provides event organisers the flexibility to make a judgement call, as appropriate to the event they're running.

    Oh I just need to fix my damn PC! I didn't realise it was that simple, thanks! 👍 It's not happening every single weekly / monthly - but over the course of a 20-stage, 6 location event like the RDRC a BSOD or game crash is bound to happen to a lot of users more than once. With a 10 minute penalty - that's enough to take you / your team out of a title race. For clubs, providing event organisers more visibility / control over whether these penalties are applied is better than enforcing a blanket 10 minute penalty.

    Yea... I'd rather accept a small subset of people will be working the system, than have my event ruined because my PC BSOD. What's worse - a few dishonest people gaining a few places, or a few honest people coming last cause their PC isn't stable?? It completely voids the time investment in Monthly and Clubs events.

    DR 2.0 - One Month Later

    My one month summary - I've already doubled my total D4 playtime in one month. FFB isn't an issue for me after spending 5 minutes trying some recommended settings. Connectivity was only an issue when I was trying to use Mods - no longer an issue personally. Locations are excellent and Monte has got me and everyone else very excited at the possibility of future D1 locations to come. The core experience in this game is absolutely excellent. The only remaining concern for me is that Clubs still isn't here. CM cant afford more delay here or it will be D4 all over again: only the core community will care by the time it's released and they'll miss the chance to make the game a staple for sim racing communities like racedepartment

  21. To do that you need to replace .nefs files, which will for sure mean you cant submit times or progress career. I doubt you'd get a ban... but dont come to me if you do 😂
  22. livery slots are still limited But they're definitely now usable without penalty as long as you dont change the .nefs.
  23. PSA: Codemasters are awesome and the folder method now works for DiRT Rally 2.0 - meaning we can now use our liveries in career mode, and can submit times via time trial etc. Thanks team!!! How it works: Do not touch the game's .nefs files! Copy the .pssg file and paste it the game's car directory, creating subfolders as required. Eg for the Group A Impreza, paste the 555_tex_high_00.pssg file into: cars/555/livery_00/textures_high Profit Eg:
  24. Holy moly bro! If that's the biggest mistake you've made in fifty three years you need to teach us all your ways.
