  1. It's a good job you wasn't a gamer in the 80's and 90's. A game came out and that was it. You'd have hated it mate

    Tyre strategy

    That would have been great, such a shame as it's a big miss. I had taken a break from the game but I've since now bought seasons 3&4 to complete the line up and loving it again. Just a shame about the tyre strategy

    Tyre strategy

    Hi, I'm just looking at tyres again. Most of the threads related to when the game first came out but there have been many patches since then and I'm not sure if the whole tyre thing has been updated as when first released it was pretty much bland when it could have been a great feature. I get that in career with only 2 runs before a service that softs is a no brainer but does surface temperature come into play? For example, irl, softs are fast unless they overheat so is there a difference running softs in say wales where it's cold against running softs in Australia or Spain? Would you get a time advantage running meds in a country where the track is hot against a soft? This feature could have been so cool but it's just half cocked and only really has any bearing in a club championship or a custom one. Even then, without temperature effects and pressures it's still not much of a gamble. Has anyone had any enjoyment from the whole tyre feature? I have no idea why they made such a fuss about it and video's explaining the feature then put service stations every two stages in career. This alone was ripe to be patched, even randomising it would have brought some sort of strategy into play. Looking at the WRC site for the upcoming Mexico rally it says: Expect to see both medium and hard compound tyres, the latter more likely in the afternoons when drivers face higher temperatures and hard-packed roads. and for others that are in the game: Finland: Packed gravel roads mean medium compound tyres will be the template choice, but soft compound rubber is also available. Argentina: Both medium and hard compound tyres available, with the focus likely to be on medium. Germany: Hard compound rubber available for hot and dry conditions, with soft option for wet or cold weather. A full wet tyre is available in case of very heavy rain. All I read is that everyone uses softs and never hards which alludes to a failure when implementing the whole tyre thing which is a massive shame.

    Saving wheel settings

    I get I must be being dumb here but I can't see a method of saving my current wheel settings. I can see an option to load them, but not to save? Any advice of what I'm missing please? Thanks Mike

    Grid ultimate edition

    Ultimate edition is now on PSN Store for £21, standard for £17. Will be buying Ultimate tonight, bargain!
  6. Quick question, if the person setting up a championship in clubs has DLC entitlement, can players invited in who don't have it compete?

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I see what you mean, maybe it's possible in this game to have community event with different conditions than exist for leaderboards? I haven't been through all leaderboards yet, is there a TT leaderboard for ever combination of time/weather etc?

    Ok, you can see the fastest time done on that stage within that challenge period whilst driving that challenge. For instance, if 2000 people have run that challenge, you will see where you place globally against those 2000 times. The fact that TT may have 10000 times is irrelevent, these runs are not part of the challenge and therefore not compared too. If you want to see this, I would just run the TT's instead of community challenges, although you wouldn't get the cash!

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean sorry? If I do a community challenge event (Daily/weekly/monthly), I can see global leaderboards for that stage/event. I cannot see the Freeplay time trial leaderboards for the same track from that screen. I can see how I compare cross platform for the community event that I have just driven (Doesn't make for good reading mind) Out of curiosity, what is your priority, buying cars or upgrading engineer skills? At the moment I have a balance of buying a car that I like, driving it and upgrading it whilst balancing engineer upgrades

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I get global leader boards for community challenges? I'm on PS4 so I only see names for people with a PS4, everyone else is just called 'Dirt Player' but I can see their times. I know the names are PS4 players because it allows me to see their PSN profile and games/tophies etc

    league Dirt Rally 2.0

    I asked this on the general forum in a thread about something else. I was answered several times about the other thing in the thread by a staff member but each time I also asked about the inclusion of clubs. The staff member answered by other questions but never mentioned the bit about clubs. When he finally solved my issue I once again asked about clubs and never got another answer in the thread. The staff member was very helpful so I guess he's been told not to answer or confirm/deny anything related to clubs. I guess it's a wait and see for now.
