    Would you say the same if the game didn't support your Wheel? Would you play it with a Controller then? (Or KB&M?) Say you spent hundreds of Dollars on a Fanatec Setup. And then one of the most serious and best Rally game sequels didn't Support it! But Dirt Rally supported Fanatec gear!! I am sure there was a time in your life where you didn't have a Wheel. Can you "go back" and play racing games without one? Isn't that aggravating? Try to not hate us for a moment and try to imagine how it would be. That's how we feel everytime we read "oh there won't be VR Support at Launch. But maybe later!". We are just lucky that racing game developers have accepted that they must support a wide range of wheels - at Launch! Now the same has to happen with VR Support. For a CM game? Sure, they play great with a controller. People here on the forum use KB+M as well. Same story with the Forza games, of which don't support my wheel. Something like AC is a bit difficult on controller, but do able, as well as some other hard core sim games. KB+M is generally pretty terrible. CM games historically have all had pretty mediocre FFB and wheel support as well, but as long as they let you custom assign buttons and axis it works just fine, which again, is a global thing and not wheel specific. There's also some older racing and arcade games including Burnout Paradise (and it's remaster) that I have that don't support wheel. So... Yes, I can go back to not having one. I can even go back to single screen as I've mentioned before. Sometimes I just don't feel like dealing with the issues that NV surround inherently has since Nvidia doesn't want to support their own software products. Again I'll mention Burnout Paradise Remaster not having surround, when the original did, and yeah, I play in stereo. It's minorly annoying, but not a deal breaker in the way that I have to scream about it. And again, think about the fact that triple screen and ultrawides have been around for a decade now and they still aren't supported.properly or at all in a fairly large number of new titles. Or even better, think about surround sound, which has been around since the 70's yet theres exceptionally little media that actually uses it at all, let alone takes advantage of it. You bought an experiment and expect it to be applied to everything immediately which frankly is... stupid... on your part. Products that have been around for decades longer aren't properly implemented when it's already easier to do so and you're screaming to implement something new. It's really like Apple stuff. Sure, it's cool, yeah it might work better than some of the alternatives, but the alternatives are a WAY larger market, more accessible, easier to work with, and develop products for. Think about how many "superior" cable connections and dongles Apple went through that never caught on mainstream. USB C is just now starting to show up. You wanted to be on the leading edge, expect failure. It just happens. It's a gamble. Take what you can, but screaming about it flailing your arms around makes you loudest person in the room, that's it. Wow. It is stupid to expect DR2 to have VR Support since DR1 already had it and the groundwork has been done. Then please excuse me Sir. Next time I will ask you first before I say something like this. You are accusing us of having attidude while ignoring that it's actually you that attack us, just because we expressed an opinion and a desire, for which this Forums clearly are the place. Someone said we should adress it to the Devs: Well that's exactly what we are doing in this thread, because this thread seems to be the only one actively monitored and participated in by the Devs. And @Areyouben asked why can't we have/love both. Well that's exactly what we want. We VR users love you guys! Because without you, without a large user base, games like this wouldn't be possible. Yet I was the one being attacked just because I took a critical stance on one single Decision (VR Support) asking why not include it on Release (because that would be a no brainer to me) and suggesting it shouldn't be MUCH of an effort (an opinion expressed by others in the VR thread too).  Everyone was like "oh how can you be so naive, it just doesn't make sense from a busines PoV, blablabla". Guess what, I too know how businesses work. So as an offer of peace in the future I suggest this: When anyone expresses : why not vR? and VR is something you don't care about - don't attack him, don't invent facts and numbers, don't assume anything if you don't really know. Let the Devs answer. And a noble Position would actually be: "I might not have it, but hey Codies, he's right, why was this decision made? I might jump on thre VR Train as well in the future who knows". But I don't expect this, this would require a very mature thinking. Because one day you will be glad that there was enough of a critical mass to make something a de facto Standard - as steering wheels are today. Please shut up and go learn something you petulant child.

    Yeah, because that's why race teams with unlimited budgets use VR.... oh, wait... they don't.

    well, just shows that there actually is demand for it right? No, because it's the same very loud 5 people since DR. well thats just full denial... look at facbeook, look at reddit, look at steam discussion, look here, look at youtube. look wherever you want. LITERALLY every other comment is about vr support and how the status is. i dont know how anyone can be that much in denial?! Again, it's the same SMALL group of people complaining. Facts are facts, and VR just doesn't make or break any title. Perhaps you should re-evaluate who's really in denial.

    I think the only thing you'll find that does is prove just how small of a market VR really is.  i think the exact opposite would happen. in iracing about 10-20% are running vr exclusively.  there are more vr headsets on the steam hardware survey then there are steering wheels. just to put it in perspective. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/Steamworks/controller/ownership/German.jpg i honestly have no idea why people who dont own vr are against it?! its not hurting you that other people has options. just as i want full vr support i think the same goes for full 3screen support. i want that everybody can enjoy it in the way he desires. Because it takes valuable time away from regular development, and regardless of what that "survey" says, I guarantee more people use wheels and even gamepads than VR for racing games. iRacing is an outlier because it's one of the few reputable sims that offers it. Even AC is JUST NOW implementing the feature. And next to iRacing, its arguably the most widely used sim.

    VR is still garbage and such a small minority of players, they won't notice the few hundred that refuse to buy because they are crybabies.  I'm hyped for this so far, they really have listened to every request worth making from the community, and that's just from the release statement!!!

    Yeah, I had a 1997 road car back in the day.  The handbrake seemed to open the centre-diff, no bother with handbrake turns, you could actually hear something mechanical happen when you pulled the magic wand!  Yeah, the center diff is mechanical, but doesn't allow the front wheels to lock up from driveline shock... the automatics actually have an ACD that does a similar effect.  Nothing will beat a true subaru DCCD though.... got one on the 207 forester swap.

    It could also be mechanichal. You have to step on the clutch before puling the handbrake, but it's about the same ;) Yep, just like anyone that rallies with a subaru from pre 05, my handbrake works fine, no active center diff.

    Forza even lost VW. They seem to be a bit weird lately. They got into a bit of trouble recently for emissions, hurt their stock pretty good.

    Licensing is a cancer for racing games development and future sales. Yup I'd say it kinda hasn't already, and I know a few who would agree. How has it not already? They can only do so much, its down to the manfacturers and licence holders to give the final say. Not going well would be to have like 10 cars but we are getting 50+. That's my point, the manufacturers have already screwed it up... and while I know it's not CM fault, nobody is standing up and saying enough is enough. And God forbid any of you actually vote with your wallet. Edit: I was mainly referring to the content that already exists that would take either little or minimal work to add intent he game, that can't because some fat cat billionaire said so...

    Interesting, I have never noticed it and I have a good 5.1 surround system. If it is there, it needs to be well enhanced, in reality, in the right conditions, the reverb sound overwhelms everything, Hairs on neck stand up, awesome sound, quite a rush ! A good 5.1 system is only as good as its setup between amplifier and PC... also, DR wasn't the most surround optimized game.  The sound is definitely there for me, running a DTS surround and optical to the decoder.  Optical's you're problem.... maybe I'm wrong though, but optical can't handle uncompressed 5.1, so you're losing some definition there. I think DR works bloody brilliantly in 7.1~2ish. The gravel used to be much louder and really sounded like you were in the car, and you could hear the snap, crackle, pop of the exhaust behind you. The problem is (As is the case with most racing games) you're typically by yourself in DR, so the effects aren't quite as noticeable. When the i20 first released it seriously sounded like a pissed of panther behind me but I think they toned it down. Optical passes DTS just fine, I assure you... get above 44.1 and that's where it cuts down, but 48khz never really caught on in the broadcast world.

    Yeah, but I didn't saw an answer about hillclimb discipline possibility :p Sorry, we are focusing on Rally, Rallycross and Landrush in DiRT 4. Pikes Peak made the most sense for us as it had a dirt surface. With that gone hillclimb loses some of its relevance to the DiRT franchise.  As much as I love Pikes Peak, I never thought of it this way and can't disagree.... stupid government making them pave it.

    If such comments exist, I would like to reiterate my point of the pace-notes taking priority over reaction - there's no point in the co-driver being more 'alive' and 'present' if it means he skips pacenotes. And while we're still on this topic, I +10,000 that earlier comment about having Samir's codriver as an option. It's bound to happen at some point, now that I've plus-over-9,000'd it... They will never take priority.  Samir's co driver is not going to happen. The original video was edited with malicious intent from a 40 minute video that Samir had originally posted. His Co Driver, Vivek Ponnusamy lost a major contract as a result of the video and I believe they sued the YouTuber who edited the video. The likelyhood of him being willing to come in and record something that has damaged his career is slim to none. If we were to get an actor in to 'simulate' it we would open ourselves up to a lawsuit. I had no idea, just looked it up and read the full story, its sad. I'm surprised the video hasn't been taken down since he was arrested for uploading with malicious intent? http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/chennai/motor-sports-executive-lands-in-jail-for-posting-funny-clip-online/article5056363.ece It was actually an executive at a different company that edited the video and was arrested. Apparently in India you can be held responsible for damages from "prank videos" because they don't have the same first ammendment rights as the US has. Pretty sure I heard places in Europe are like that too.

    - Improved Ego engine but not a new one.  - No Raid this time. I want to do desert racing properly and we need new tech to do it.  - Your Stage is Rally only - Damage repair depends on your difficulty  - Yes, music licenses eventually expire - We are improving the anti cheat - We have commissioned a plaque for Porkhammer  - We have new ranking competitions for you to compete in - Sorry about your flag, I'll see what I can do This guy rocks...

    @KickUp wondering if Nvidias SMP technology will be able to be used in the game?  Allows us to run triple screen with proper viewpoints, but apparently needs to be implemented by the developer.

    I build these engines for a living, red line is 7500 stock, and depending on turbo, als setup, etc... they will make power out past 10,500rpm. Hell, my turbo doesn't even spool till 4300. You build Evo X R4 engines for a living? Hmm, weird. I've seen and heard lots of Evo X R4's in real life and it's quite clear that they're not revving nearly as much as in DiRT Rally. Take a look at this video for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yEyEiO5lEw The Evo X R4 should be driven with torque due to the nature of its engine in R4 spec. I know that there are some hill climb and rallycross Evo X's that easily rev over 7500rpm, but that's due to completely different rules. But watching that video you can quite clearly see how "wrong" the Evo X is in DiRT Rally so that's why I hope it would be more accurate in DiRT 4 :) I see what you're saying, they are just driving it like that to keep it in the torque band... look at the actual Rev meter in the middle, running about halfish....  And I'll be running some races in a bit, but I felt the Evo would drive like this in the game too, I'll check.

    Can't give you a straight answer but I'm pretty sure the percentage system is gone. You will probably have to change parts or try to "quickfix" them with the risk of later failure. This is speculation upon whats been said and seen. I guess @Hatward can answer you if he feel like it ;) It's quick fix, repair or replace. Not all parts can be replaced. The level of repair will determine the likelihood of that part failing later on. The time taken will depend on your crew.  Part durability translates into our used car market, so you can choose to buy a **** box that needs all its parts replacing or a totally rebuilt car ready to race (if you can find one).  Now THIS is pure gold ladies and gentlemen! Sounds epic! I feel kinda bad for asking too many questions as you have better things to do, but have anything been done to gear changes? Some were way too slow in DR. H-shift with clutch was by far the fastest in many cars. I'd love to be able to shift as fast without clutch on cars with dogboxes. I quite like this slowness, so there is a reason to play with the shifter. Still slow with a shifter... slower than my 220k mile subaru.
