    DiRT Rally 2.0 Road Book – 20/03/19

    That's a great choice to let DLC locations in multiplayer lobbies be open to everyone, its a niche player base as it is so this is great to not segregate further.

    DiRTy Gossip Thread

    I've been binge watching Hoonigan's YT channel recently and Rhys Millen does a great job at explaining the corner numbers in rallying for anyone interested (time stamp embedded) :

    Dirt Rally 2.0 VR - Paid DLC or Free DLC?

    I'd like it to be included since games like Assetto Corsa included it for free but I doubt they had the cash injection that CM have had, I wouldn't mind paying for it if its like £5 as I know it will be a small uptake and probably needs to recoup costs somehow.

    No Force feedback Dirt Rally 2.0

    They are doing something, they have stated so that its a priority. Its not an overnight fix, as a software consultant surely you should know this? Also XML editor? I changed the values in Notepad...

    2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship

    I did feel that Gymkhana 10 was a bit of a letdown, not really sure why though. I think its because they've pushed the boat out more stunt wise each time but this one was a little more reserved. Possibly due to the multiple locations but I did feel that watching the series first then Gym10 again was better. The Focus definitely seemed to lumber around in comparison to the smaller wheelbase of the other cars, one of the best looking though in my opinion.

    2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship

    I watched The Gymkhana Files over the weekend and it was heartbreaking watching Ken having to tell Bakkerud that the Hoonigan RX team was no more. You could tell how much he loved it by how upset he was. Man that was one hell of a docuseries, would thoroughly recommend to anyone.

    Yeah me too, I guess its easier to access for most people though as its in front of them and a lot of people use it anyway. I just forget its there half the time lol.

    I did wonder, I don't use Discord all that often especially that chat which has so many people and moves so fast

    DR 2.0 should have been delayed until June release

    Of course, I'm using the Alt theme. If you click on your name at the top right, there is an option for an Alt Theme. Is this what you meant?

    Dude, get a grip.

    ffb fixed, some comms from devs

    What is awful behaviour, acknowledging they're working on it? Why should they be telling us how their game is made? I'd rather they take their time on it and make sure its right, if its half baked then it will just **** off everyone more.

    Why does it matter?
  14. That is the problem with Steam's review system, most people will see a mixed review as middle of the road and probably only worth buying in a sale. DR2.0 has its 2 large issues but that is it, the rest of the game is brilliant but this is what people latch onto. Plus its always the vocal minority and silent majority situation.

    This video is great! I'm also apparently the 10,000th viewer which is quite satisfying lol

    His liveries are very out there and most would say obnoxious but I just love them. Whoever the graphic designer is does a fantastic job I just see it as another source of fire spitting 😉

    DiRTy Gossip Thread

    Ken has come across as a humble dude, he's never been a guy who tries too hard or thinks he's a great driver. He's a guy who's earn't his money and is enjoying his passion, something 99% of us could only dream of. He gets hated on by jealous internet trolls with nothing better to do. Fun fact, when I went to watch the World RX Championship at Lydden Hill and he wasn't racing at the time, I saw Ken standing on his own next to the track for quite some time just watching the racing. I didn't see any other drivers around doing the same, maybe for other reasons but he just looked like he was enjoying himself.

    I've still not watched that, keep meaning to! Who knows. as much as I think his car looks dope, I hope they aren't "bastardising" too many originals. I don't even know how many are still in the wild lol

    He's already had one but crashed it and it burnt to a crisp:
  22. Or the fact that they are working on it which they have already stated a few times?

    Wheel Users: shoes, yay or nay?

    My G25 pedals are far weaker than my IRL car pedals so wearing shoes with my G25 gives me less control over the pedals.
  24. Hey all! So DR2.0 has had a rocky start with the Racenet issues and FFB complaints, both valid in their own right and there are multiple posts and threads on both this forum and Reddit which cover these negative aspects. CM are well aware and we don't need more threads about it. That aside, lets talk about the things that DR2.0 does damn well. The rest of the game itself is great and the best rally game we have ever gotten. The vehicle handling is the best there has been in any rally game, the physics have really been nailed (although tarmac could do with a little more work) and the stages and RX tracks look great. Rally stage lengths are now also longer and more detailed than ever before and the stage degradation is really cool. This thread is purely for some appreciation of the good work that's gone into this game and when the issues are fixed, I hope everyone who refunded jumps back in and we can all get some multiplayer lobbies going and be friends! (Any comments about the FFB or Racenet will be personally downvoted so be warned!)
