  1. Hello, First off, my setup info... SimuCube (OSW "Small Mige"), Bodnar SLI-Pro (display and controls my wheel's button input), ProtoSimTech PT2 Pedals (Bodnar BU0836-LC based pedals) and TH8A Shifter (always in Analog Handbrake mode with Rally games). How are you getting on with the input configuration options in-game? Are they easy to find, easy to understand? I had to find someones youtube video before I found out where you hid the wheel rotation calibration option. I personally like using soft lock, so this setting was very important for me. Once I got that calibrated right, it made a big difference. Otherwise mapping inputs (axis, buttons, etc) was fairly straight forward. Is it easy to understand in-game what each of the settings mean and do? Is there anything in this regard you think the team could do better in the future? For the FFB settings, little more detail about what each setting is would be good. Wasn't there more detail provided in Dirt Rally 1.0? It seems that it's gone a step behind. But since the recent FFB patch, the game is feeling 100% better. How are you finding the in-game tools and configuration options? Does the job I guess. See comments above regarding descriptions and how I found it a bit tricky to find the wheel rotation calibration option. How do you feel about how the game handles external configuration files? Honest answer... ********. While It's good that my SimuCube wheel is able to be added manually... but I didn't have to do this file edit in Dirt Rally 1.0, and most other games will detect it automatically. I have no issues with manually binding/calibrating in game... but I shouldn't need to edit an external file to get full detection and FFB working (telemetry is another thing, and I'll leave that alone as being fine in a the xml files). Thankfully the game is popular enough and there were many threads about how to get SimuCube (and other OSW) wheels working early after release, or it would had been a quick request for a refund. What are your thoughts on how the game handles multiple input devices, and switching between them? Beyond my comment about the external files being required for calibration of my OSW... I'm just happy that there's zero issue with calibrating my setup, including custom mapping to get 99% of the in-game menus working without needing to reach for my keyboard/mouse. Only other feedback I'd love to provide... can you please add proper triple screen support (separate render, angle of side monitors, in-game bezel correction, etc)? That'd be nice. Real field of view "in degrees" would be good too (but hey, at least FOV options are no longer hidden in XML files). EDIT: Forgot one other big item... while my TH8A is detected as analog handbrake... why does the game use it as a digital on/off switch? 1% input = 100% input... why? Please support full analog handbrakes in future update/fixes. Please keep pushing forward with DR2.0... I'd be more then happy to buy a Season 3, 4 and beyond of DLC if you keep pushing forward with the updates/fixes.
  2. OMG. I think this recent patch has actually fixed it! No more glimmer/flicker. but I wish there was an 'ultra' LOD for this, as the draw distance is still not far enough out and the transition is very noticeable.
  3. While I doubt Codemasters will ever add proper triples screen support (come on Codies, prove me wrong.... for them to include VR, seems like it's brain surgery for this team), but this foliage issue for surround users should be fixable with other methods. It's really unfortunate if using a higher FOV (as mine is also lowered based on positioning of my screens) or if I'd have to settle with ground cover turned off (another option that works), as they really aren't what I'd call a "solution". Have we also looked at options like increased LOD or Draw Distance for the Ground Cover? GTX 1080ti at 5760x1080.
  4. Why can't we save mid-season in the Extra Championships?  Don't always have time to do 10 races back to back to back (example of British Touring Car Legends). And could these Extra Championships be organized in to categories followed by events?  I have all the DLC (seasons pass)... and it's just a big messy wall of events to scroll thru to find what I want to do next.
  5. In cockpit view.  With the formula car (only tested the C car so far), if I use the look back button the wind audio effect is lost and doesn't come back until the next race.
  6. 4 hours in... all in the Touring car discipline... having a total blast with the game.  I am very happy with my purchase. However, Codemasters... Why did you include real-world tracks in reverse configurations in the career mode?  It is sacrilige running these world famous tracks in reverse.  Just did Red Bull Ring in reverse... it's terrible.  If you made us do Laguna Seca in reverse, everyone would be crying bloody murder.  Totally not looking forward to Mount Panorama in reverse.  Really wish you left the real-world circuit reverse layouts (that aren't used in real life) out of the career mode events and only for online and custom single player events.
  7. GTX 680 2GB with three 24" monitors.  I normally run a bezel corrected resolution of 1920x5900.  This does work really well in GRID Autosport... however each time I launch the game it resets back to 1920x5760 and I need to reset it back to my bezel corrected resolution each time.  All other game settings save fine.  Please look in to fixing this.  Thank you.
  8. I guess you're right.  But unless I complete (and win, I believe) these championships... I can't get those achievements.  Not super important to me... but I do like completion as best as possible.
  9. Wow.  That's totally lame.  I feel really let down.  I'll likely never finish these longer championships of the Legends Touring pack... and it's too bad cause they're really fun, I just don't have the time always to play that many events in a row.
  10. So will this be addressed Lorne?  Can't be that difficult to fix this.
  11. Just tried again... it's not working. I'm on PC (via Steam).  Just tried the Touring Legends British Championship (part of the Touring Legends DLC Pack, events found under Extra Championships)... completed the first of 5 rounds (two races at Donnington Short)... exit the game, it warns me that the progress for this event will be lost... if I exit and try to go back to the same championship, it starts from the beginning. Not sure if you're trying the same content, or maybe this is a PC only issue.
  12. Bump.  It's really annoying this issue and is keeping me away form really enjoying the DLC content.
  13. Still doesn't appear to be fixed yet.  (The audio issue mentioned that is.)

    Share Your Wheel Settings Here

    Fanatec GT3 RS V2 w/ CSR Elite pedals here. On wheel : Sen 300 / FF 100 / Sho 000 / Dri Off / Abs Off / Lin 000 / Dea 000 / Spr 0 / Dpr -3 In-Game all is set to 0 Deadzone and 100 Sensitivity, Wheel Linarity at 0, All 3 FFB options at 50% (really down to personal preference on the FFB) This is same settings I've been using for all the Codies games; F1 2013 and DiRT2 being the others I regularly play.  Think I found these (wheel) settings in an "official" settings thread (by Codies) the old F1 2013 forums (before the forum refresh occurred).
  15. Hasn't been fixed yet. Thankfully my other issue (triple screen wouldn't save bezel corrected resolution when restarting the game) is fixed with recent updates.
  16. It appears to be fixed!  Thank you!
  17. Thank you for the response.  Look forward to having this resolved.

    Colin McRae Rally on Steam

    Was Ok on iPhone... totally not worth a purchase for PC.  If it had the full content from CMR 2.0, than maybe it'd be worth it.
  19. Still not fixed with the latest (July 30th) patch.

    Camera Angle Feedback

    I play with the further back of the two cockpit cameras, this is on a triple screen setup.  I think it's just fine (in all cars tested so far).  My biggest complaint (beyond the "blurry cockpit cam") is that the in-car mirrors don't work at all, kinda lame.
  21. That is possible.  This is just the first game that I've had this issue with.  I've had games where I need to go to single monitor mode... I've had games that won't see/use the bezel corrected mode at all... this is the first where it just simply doesn't save it, even though it lets me select it (and it works) every time I start the game.
  22. Tell me how to skip the tracks?  Just forefit that race weekend? Just quit out of the races and get 0 credit. I mean if doing the tracks in reverse r to hard just wimp out and quit. Nothing about the tracks being "too hard"... in my opinion there is no track that is "too hard".  It's just not in the spirit of being an authentic (all be it an arcade physics based) racing game.
  23. Tell me how to skip the tracks?  Just forefit that race weekend?
  24. Interesting that this is almost 50/50 in response.  I think it's a lazy way to add extra content, and some of the reverses are worse than others.  I do wish there was an option to opt out of the events in career mode (set them back to their normal direction)... but it's not.

    "Second Screen" option

    Second screen is a very cool idea.  Would be great at lan parties or other public events.
