    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Version 1.9 VR Feedback

    Huge improve from the steam version and runs nicely, very good job by CM game devs. Colour banding I first saw at night has gone, rebooted and reinstalled video driver and seems to be ok now.

    Steam VR version 1.9 Oculus SDK

    Yeah runs really well, good job game devs. I had seen a strange sort of colour banding going on in dark areas, like some sort of filter is not working correctly when I first ran game after update. However after a reboot and reinstall video driver it appears ok. Will check more tracks tomorrow as not sure where I saw it first. Hopefully just a video driver glitch.

    Dirt rally 2.0 game pass VR support?

    What the heck Codemasters !!? Why the hell would you do that ? Just let people with a Gamepass try VR if they are able. Ok so apparently all windows games have no VR ... so I was bit quick to call them out ... this time anyway.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - VR FAQ & Performance Guide

    For F's sake Codies, give us the damn Oculus sdk version on Steam as we all paid for a proper working vr version. It is the right thing to do but can you do that or have you really turned into a scumbag EA clone ? Also blocking off Season 1&2 for online events and rewards really is gutter tactics. Where did it ever say our Deluxe version Season pass would expire ? Where ? This is beyond a joke at this point and utterly bewildering.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - VR FAQ & Performance Guide

    I am glad to have VR and certain the actual devs of this great Rally Sim aare working their best to implement it nicely for everyone, for that huge thanks to them for all their effort.  But I find it hard to trust Codemasters the company and those managers divorced and remote from the customers who make purely business decisions like this that have such an impact on the enjoyment of what is a rather superb Rally Sim. Oculus would also have huge influence on how this unfolded. Still there is time to make it right and I will wish for that as surely it can only get better ? !

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - VR FAQ & Performance Guide

    Hey Codies, I feel gutted because back when you were touting the game excitedly as "VR is Coming", all of us who are VR users were so happy, including those of us with Oculus headsets. But you failed to mention that only the Oculus Store version would support the Oculus SDK and this is why your Oculus supporters are so upset. Oculus also is to blame. Because it is a fair expectation, based on all other Steam VR sim racing titles, that you would include full Oculus support in the Steam version and you didn't tell us otherwise, even though you must have known. Dirt Rally original was great, like many I bought in early access, and the Oculus SDK was supported so it ran beautifully, why should we not expect the same now ? It feels like a huge betrayal. We supported your VR announcement by purchasing in good faith on Steam even though we only wished to race in VR. Of course if Oculus HMD owners knew all this back then we would have saved our money and waited for the VR release. Pretty disappointing and actually dishonest of you really.

    Remove Always Online for the Career!

    Well unfortunately those of us in Australia often have really crappy internet connections due to the Government's lame implementation of the national broadband network which is prone to outages and massive slowdowns in peak times. So it is really disappointing to now find out that DR 2.0 has an always online rule for career because it means problems and stress when playing, unnecessarily. It is really hard to understand why this was done for single player career ... the cheaters reason doesn't hold water at all 😕

    I'm DONE!! ...already. Rally 2.0

    I can sorta sympathise with you as the accent is a little hard in places ... I much prefer by miles the co-driver for original Dirt Rally, I think it was Paul Coleman but not sure on that. However on the other side of the coin, the American voices that have been in other Dirt games are so grating and annoying that I want to shove a screwdriver in my ear, so this accent is not too bad after all really.
  9. gday mark and welcome,  please tell us what is happening re fixing the currently broken VR support on Oculus Rift dk2? biglee mentioned on the steam forums yesterday that they were looking at it but haven't heard any news yet. cheers R

    GRID Autosport 3D Vision

    Hey nice Graphics Guy.... good job ... I had shelved GAS until this was fixed and been totally engrossed playing Elite: Dangerous (super cool and totally awesome Space game)  but I will soon go back into Steam and get this updated and check it out over next few days What you mention about the default convergence is not a big problem because it is easy to just make a comfortable setting, key to it is that we can save that setting with the Nvidia Hotkeys but you mention that it can be done so really no problem and it should be totally cool ! Thanks again :)

    GRID Autosport 3D Vision

    Well I have to say after playing some more today that it is disappointing :(   The 3D is good if you like to race from outside the vehicle in 3rd person view ... but I never do that so is only to view car briefly. Because the convergence is locked there is no way to bring everything to a balanced depth of pop-out for Hood /Bonnet view or Cockpit view. It is easy to see that it could be very good 3D effect from one of the cockpit views where the depth and pop-out is quite good but it is ruined by the visual of the car cockpit being totally out of focus. I really do not understand why seasoned racing game programmers such as Codemasters do not have this aspect of 3D fully worked out yet,  and maybe it is just that they do not have interest in 3D vision or similar.  3D vision is so well implemented in other racers like rFactor2 and Asetto Corsa which are older and even Milestone have great 3D in there bike racers like MXGP & MotoGP13 so there is no good reason for Codemasters not to implement similar is there ? With Oculus Rift DK2 on the horizon and 3D becoming more popular it about time that this is looked at seriously.

    GRID Autosport 3D Vision

    It is nice to have 3D but without the ability to adjust convergence for cockpit or hood view, the effect is just not as good. Especially for driving games the pop-out achieved with convegence adjustments is really what adds to the sense of immersion. Great examples are both Assetto Corsa and rFactor2.  Others are Milestone games, MotoGP13 and MXgp.  All of those allow convergence to be adjusted to suit the user. There is a hack that allows me to adjust convergence in Grid2 but it only works in bumper cam view and the view I most use is either Hood or Cockpit if it is available. Also the limitation is it cannot be done on-the-fly and must be preset from a config file so is very time consuming to get right and as I said it doesn't work in Hood view. So if you can patch GAS to allow convergence to be adjusted in game, for Hood view at least, that would be awesome. Is it possible for a future patch ?

    GRID Autosport 3D Vision

    Too True we were hyped to go race in 3D !   I quoted you from Steam AlkWoody LOL :)   I really hope the 3D is better than Grid2 because you could not modify the Convergence setting for Hood view without totally screwing everything and it only worked if you used Helix convergence hack. Can you comment on the convergence setting please Mr. GraphicsGuy ?

    GRID Autosport 3D Vision

    Really !?  Ok at least we know now that it is not our PC or something else ... but it is really confusing you guys put out the patch and notes that indicate it is fixed ... also when you said "fix in upcoming patch" and then a week later the patch comes then it is safe to assume it is fixed, right ? This line in patch notes caused confusion : - Nvidia Surround Fix - Improved 3D Vision Surround compatibility within cockpit cams when using a triple monitor configuration You should know that we ( and who knows how many other users ) spent alot of wasted time to get this working under a false belief... just saying that maybe you have a better system with your PR guys to get CLEAR information across to the end user. I hope it is worth it and you have some convergence setting ( unlike Grid 2 ) and can you give ETA of this long-awaited fix please? Thanks R&R

    GRID Autosport - An honest review

    Hey GraphicsGuy .... why didn't the 3D Vision Fix work in the patch update ???  Game is still borked in 3D !
