    your favourite engine sound in game?

    +1 for the Peugeot! It sounds very agressive (especially in replays), my favourite R5 car because of that. By the way all the cars sounds great in DR 2.0 it's one of the strengths of this game. Many game has weak, uninspiring sounds for small 4 cylinder engines but here in DR2 all car has characteristic sounds.
  2. I wouldnt say it's unplayable but there are screen tearing issues sometimes. In overall the game looks good and the stages look realistic, only exception is Michigan which is quite over-saturated in sunny conditions. Sometimes textures look low-res which same textures look sharper in other parts of the game (details of some cars i noziced it on the Kadett's headlight.)

    So, to sum up...

    Very true! These rally cars have six or eight massive headlights on them and in the game they are about as effective like the standard H7s on my Skoda Octavia in low beams. I'm pretty sure that six headlights aligned for a night rally stage should give you much more light than what we have now.

    Night and rainy stages: too much!

    Agreed. The stages looks great and very different but we get the same old Welsh weather everywhere. :)

    Better Liveries

    Agreed. Most of the liveries are very dull: mono-color with two or three brand stickes thrown onto the doors and the bonnet and that's all. Not that great. I guess featuring real world liveries is difficult and/or expensive due to copyright issues. Here is my suggestion: why don't Codies bring back the livery editor from Dirt4? It's already done, it works fine, only needs to implement into Dirt Rally 2.0! The sponsor logos in Dirt4 based on the contracts you've made: it's not necessary to bring the sponsor managment feature back, it would be enough that player could choose the main and the secondary sponsor logos in the livery editor. I loved the livery editor in D4, I admit I've spent way too much time with it. :)

    We Want Money in Free Mode!

    Money in free mode? No, I don't think it's a good idea. If you want to make money you have to accept the challenges that you have to run on stages not choosen by you and paying the repairs. Why on Earth would anyone play Career Mode anymore if you could choose your favourite stage (where you memorized every single pebble stone on the road), dry weather, sunny skies and earn a buttload of money by doing it over and over again? Another pain in the butt would be paying for repairs in Time Trial. Leave Free Mode as it is, because it's perfect for it's purpose: you can test whatever car on whatever track, perfecting your setups without risk. And because there is no risk, you don't deserve any reward. Free Mode is for preparing you for the challanges of My Team. Makes no sense to blend them together.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - V1.1 - found a bug? Post it here!

    Minor sound bug: BMW M3 @ Czarn Las, Poland, dry weather: on gravel roads the tires screeching like they're running on tarmac. It's not game-breaking but rather funny. :)

    Dirt Rally 2.0 is wonderful. Stop complaining!

    I agree with the thread-starter, DR 2.0 is an awesome game, the worthy successor of the original Dirt Rally. There are a few minor glitches here and there (racenet issues, total darkness on some rainy daytime stages, etc.) but in overall it's a very well made game. What made a really great impression to me that although DR 2.0 is a realistic simulator it's very fun and enjoyable right out of the box. I mean the driving with a controller is well optimised, it's natural to drive with after some minor tweaks. I think nobody has mentioned yet but the basic car setups are really good. It feels that Codies made some efforts to tune the basic setups for making the cars balanced and fun to drive. In D4 I remember I had to tinker with setups way too much time just to make the cars somewhat driveable for me. In DR 2.0 most of the base setups are perfect for being a neutral starting point. After a few shakedowns I can still tweak them to suit my driving style better, but the cars are fun to drive even without changing a thing. It feels like the hand-crafted stages are designed with love. Before the release I watched gameplays on youtube and I wasn't sure how well made the stages will be. Some of them looked quite monotonous. After a couple days of playing I think my worries are gone: the stages are characteristic and they are fun to drive. Very memorable turns are in them, many nice sections with a great rhythm, with a good flow - which are looks amazing in the replays. The guys who designed them must be true rally fans. The location topography and the layout of the roads are realistic: they feel like real places, like real roads which connect places - not a gamey experience with random turns and jumps. Color palettes and lighting also making the visuals more realistic than ever: I havent been in exotic places like New Zealand or Argentina but I live in East Europe (Hungary) and the Polish stages are really captured the feel of the east-european country-sides. Top quality job! Thank you Codemasters!

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - V1.1 - found a bug? Post it here!

    It's not only NZ, that darkness also appears on every track with thick forest sections with many shadows. It's OK that it's dark in the shadows but it's black as night in those sections at daytime.It's even darker in cockpit view. I had a race in Poland, start time 2pm, weather cloudy and it was as dark as it was about 9pm.
  11. Played DR 2.0 all day without connectivity issues. Seems to be fixed.
  12. I disagree. I enjoy the new physics, it feels very natural and real. RWDs needs some feathering of the throttle but AWD cars can be driven aggressively into nice powerslides. On a stage with a good flow its easy to chain together opposite direction corners and keep the momentum. Driving the Evo VI in New Zealand is a blast, even with the baseline setup.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - V1.1 - found a bug? Post it here!

    I had the same experience as I wrote in a post above! At first in Argentina and now in New Zealand. At first I wasnt sure but now I'm: it's a serious bug that needs to be fixed. In a daytime stage the headlights doesnt work, and you find yourself in the 100% black on some sections of rainy stages. It was the same level of darkness when I smashed my headlights on a night stage. I play on Xbox One. (amúgy nagyon király a játék 🙂

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - V1.1 - found a bug? Post it here!

    Not strictly a bug, but the cockpit view is too dark on rainy daytime stages. Even with headlights on the road is barely visible. With outside views (chase/bonnet/bumper cam) the light is good, but I prefer and I dont want to change view because of this issue. I play on standard Xbox One. Another issue is (maybe also game-design and not bug) that the rev.counter/gear indicator overlay is not visible in basic cockpit view (the one with the steering wheel). I enabled the rev.counter in the menu, but choosing the cockpit view overwrites this option. Would it be possible to enable at least the gear indicator in every view? On Argentina stages frame rate drops in sections with more trees (at least in rainy conditions). (standard Xbox One)
