  1. Oh the excitement! We should really rename the thread to something like A Scandal in Bohemia. :o :o :o Maybe that means the Barum Czech Rally Zlin will be represented in DiRT Rally 2.0. Bit of a longshot but I'd just thought I could throw it in here. :) 

    Seriously guys, it feels great to be back in the Gossip Thread.

  2. I've finally uploaded a bit of incar from mine and Paul's last rally we did

    It sounds so weirdly familiar. Hoping for the "Be brave"-call. But instead I got something else, probably more familiar.. Usually its "sounds like a front left puncture" and not the driveshaft though... 

    Anyways, better luck next time and thanks for sharing!

    Here's another pizza that is quite regular here in the South of Sweden.

    It's a kebab/gyros pizza... WITH FRIES! Boom. Minds blown.

    Banverket Special (equivalent in Britain would be BR Special) was the name of it in my home town of Ängelholm, in the North-eastern Southern of Sweden. Supposedly it was a favourite amongst navvies, one could guess that after long days of work on the track you'll need some serious grub. 

  4. @gfRally mentioned CMR3 as an example of a good level of immersion from elements around the special stage, so I just had to look it up, and I like it! 


    Add the task of driving the car all the way to the time control after the stage and the finger count down and I'll be a very happy puppy. Of course all of these details could be optional?

    is it only me who just wanted to rally without the full trimmings on to skip through?

    i actually like how dirt rally is so minimal to get to what i want to do. which is pick location and start. not watch this what that wait then progress. 
    No, you're not alone there! Perhaps a slightly prettier service area (like the one in CMR 2005) and more refinements in the menu would be nice, but time spent driving through ceremonial starts and the like is time that I would rather spend racing on a stage!
    I think there should be fluff in the championship, or at least in the replays, BUT always in the service park.  It would be nice to have some animations when you are pulling up to the stage.  Someone counting down with hand signals, someone checking the Co-Drivers logs.   CMR3 had a nice balance.  I could dig that game up and take a short video.  They were really not that intrusive.  NOT like DiRT2.  

    I really like the atmosphere it all brings to the game.  It sets the mood.  Much like the different camera angles (good ones at least) in the replays.  
    I'd love to see a video from the game. They must have some over att google? 

  6. I'm all for a service park view when you need to service the car. Also something I like in RBR is driving a bit further and come to a halt yourself at the end of a stage instead of just finishing and seeing a slowmotion view of you going over the finish. Maybe even driving up to the start of the stage could be nice. But nothing else in my opinion. That's a fine balance.
    I'd love to be able to set myself up for the stage. I think it's just me but a start line always gets me very excited when I visit a rally in real life. The anticipation, the concentration, the short exchange of words and time cards between marshals and co-driver. There's just a sort of an air around it that fascinates me.

    For me the perfect rally game would be the one where you could do the liaison between the stages too. But, again,  I guess that's just me. 

    On the other hand I'll happily give Codies more money for practically the same game but with some more content. DR is already a good product, just a shame I cannot drive properly.. :)
