  1. IMPORTANT: Read and understand this entire opening post before replying, as providing the right amount of detail will help out the team immensely in tracking and resolving any bugs that arise, thanks. Before posting, please make sure to follow these guidelines. Without adequate information the team will have trouble identifying and fixing bugs, so please provide as much info as you can: Check if a bug has already been reported. If you reported a bug in a previous version of the game, check your game first to see if it's been fixed. If a bug has been reported and you are experiencing the same issue, hit the ❤️ icon. The more popular bug posts will have a better chance of catching the attention of the team. Also, this thread allows us to sort comments by how many votes they have, so make use of that feature 🙂 If a bug cannot be reproduced, it cannot be fixed. When you experience a bug, please try to trigger said bug again if you can, and show us the steps you went through to trigger it. Text steps are good, video even better. One bug per post please, for our tracking purposes. That way every bug gets its own URL for us to investigate. Please also provide the following: What platform you're playing on (for PC also state Steam, Microsoft or Oculus). What your PC setup/build is like (graphics card, processor etc.). If you're playing on PC, state whether you're in 2D or VR. Whether or not you have any non-standard peripherals connected, like steering wheels, gaming mice etc.
  2. Hello everyone! Over the past few weeks you may have seen some community photos crop up on our social media pages. It’s great to see the world of DiRT through the eyes of the community and there’s some amazing action shots out there. We’d like to share even more of these moments with everyone and this is where we’d like you to get involved! In this thread share your favourite pics and screenshots from DiRT Rally 2.0; we’ll check in every so often and grab a few to post online 😊 Some guidelines: When viewing a Replay, it would be ideal if you turn off the watermarks and graphics that are usually on-screen. Let us know what platform you took the screenshot on. Unedited pics only! We want to show off the great visuals of DiRT Rally 2.0, not your skills with Adobe Lightroom 😉 By all means share edited pics in here too if you like, but please clearly state they were modified. Image resolution of 1920x1080 or greater would be ideal but the forum's max width of 1200px is also acceptable. Steam notes: Default/standard liveries only please. Livery mods are great but unofficial and unlicensed. Again, drop your pics in here regardless if you want to share, but clearly state if they’re using modded assets. We’re aware that various camera mods exist that people use with the Steam version. Images using those are fine however we don’t officially recommend the use of third-party mods, so add them at your own risk. Xbox notes: When you take a screenshot using Xbox’s Game DVR function and upload it to Xbox Live, sites using the Xbox API (including Xbox.com) can grab that image and display it on a web browser. GameDVR is an example. Grab your image from one of these sites and upload it here. PlayStation notes: PS4 users can directly export their images from their console via USB, which makes uploading to the forums a whole lot easier. Now show us what you got 😉 PS: While we’re talking about photos let’s address the M8-sized elephant in the room, Photo Mode. We’re aware that this is a highly-requested feature amongst the community, and it would certainly be great to have it in DiRT Rally 2.0. As it stands Photo Mode is something the team have discussed however it is not the highest item on our priority list right now. We’re not ruling it out entirely, but unlike some of the cool things we do have lined up (which you'll hear about in due course) it is not “just around the corner”.
  3. The final batch of cars are out today, here's the post with more info: http://blog.codemasters.com/dirt/01/2019-world-rx-supercars-part-3-available-now-in-dirt-rally-2-0/
  4. Hello everyone, time to go on a journey 🙂 I've been a pad player in racing games ever since I started playing back in the 1990s, and I've gotten quite decent at it; never quite esports ready but good enough to set the occasionally solid Leaderboard time. In 2019 I decided to move away from a long-serving job in trading card games to pursue a career in motorsport. I'll never be a professional racing driver (I'm far too old to start) but I do want to get better at sim racing and, although I'm strong on a pad, take on a tougher challenge... ...this is that tougher challenge. Outside of a few 10 minute sessions on office rigs I have never used a wheel before. In this thread I'll post updates as I play with the rig throughout 2020. A busy job plus other personal ambitions means I won't be playing every day, but over time I do plan to improve and get to a point where I am competitive. In the interest of setting some goals for the year, here's where I'd like to end up: Win a DiRT Rally 2.0 Career Rally Championship at Masters Difficulty Win a DiRT Rally 2.0 Career Rallycross Championship at Masters Difficulty Set a DiRT Rally 2.0 Time Trial rally time that I cannot beat on a pad. Let's see how I get on. ----- For those curious, this is the rig. It's pricey but I was fortunate enough to get a few discounts shortly after joining Codemasters. Playseat Sensation Pro Black / Cockpit Fanatec CSL Elite / Wheel Base Fanatec ClubSport Formula V2 / Wheel Rim Fanatec CSL Elite Pedals LC / Pedals Sparco Hypergrip / Gloves Logitech G433 / Headset Samsung UE43RU7100K / Monitor I'm playing DiRT Rally 2.0 on Xbox One X though the rig is set up to be compatible on PlayStation 4 and PC as well, and I eventually plan to play various circuit racing games (hence why I opted for the Formula rim). I'm using a 2 pedal setup, having removed the clutch.
  5. Day 8 - Time Played: 1.5 Hours Time Gained: 1 second Places Gained: 28 More progress today, particularly in the Escort where my next Event was at Australia. Things just seemed to click for more of the rally, as I was well in control of the car for the majority of Stages and amassed a 2 minute lead going into the final Stage. Admittedly I used Restart a few times on the final run as I was nursing a misaligned front wheel but I eventually got a clean one together and won the Event. The Benchmark run went even smoother than previous days as I immediately beat my PB on my first attempt. Again I was slower in Sector 1 but found massive amounts of time in Sectors 2 and 3. I'm now 9th on Xbox and closing in on the Top 100 overall, still with a stock Fiesta R5. There's at least another 2 seconds in that car before I hit uncomfortably fast territory.

    Something is coming closer...

    Regarding audio, I got word from the team what what you hear is not what the final car will sound like 😉

    It looks like when a Fortnite streamer just slaps anything on a thumbnail regardless of scale and angle 😅

  14. Day 7 - Time Played: 1.5 Hours Time Gained: 1 second Places Gained: 22 I started off today by doing a full Event in the Ford Escort MKII, first time using RWD on this setup. The first 2 Stages of Greece were tricky as I was getting to grips with the car, resulting in quite a few spins and drops off the edge of the road. One thing I've come to expect on a pad is a sense of vibration when I've put too much throttle down, but I don't get that on the wheel and it took 2 Stages to adjust to that behaviour. Once I got it settled down and stopped overdriving the car the rest of the Event went rather smoothly. I didn't quite win as I lost too much time in the opening Stages but I put in some clean runs as I got the hang of the car. The Benchmark run was interesting today. I'm now learning the Stage more than I'm learning the Fiesta R5, and finding places to optimise my lines. I gained a second on my PB today but looking at the splits I could have been up by more; I was up by a second on Sector 2 and again on Sector 4, but a slower 1 and 3 cancelled out the big gains. I feel I've almost taken a stock setup as far as I can now, though with a perfect run I could potentially get into Top 100 Global. I'm already on the top page of the Xbox standings, 12th overall on the platform.
  15. That'll require a website update, good spot.

    How to see what version i have

    Also, while Season 4 is active if you look in the top right your badge should say Season 4. Snagged this from a Twitch stream just now as an example:

    This is a somewhat basic question, but have you bought a 2019 RX car in My Team? You can only start a My Team Career Championship with cars you own.

    Sounds like it's for the next update then and we overlooked that when reviewing Patch Notes.

    I'll check when I'm back in the office. It was in the patch notes but that may have been premature in that it's probably coming in 1.13 instead. In 1.12 we definitely added the RX19 cars to the FIA World Rallycross Championship mode though.

    If Red Bull TV’s coverage is anything to go by, I can see more people going down the All Live route. What used to be a 30 minute show is now barely longer than 15 minutes. Once you’ve gone through intro, standings, a few interviews and the obligatory ad for Red Bull’s other shows, there’s only about 5 minutes of actual driving in there. Shame too as their coverage was what got me back into watching rally in the first place.
