    will i still qualify for my car

    Yes. Only a single Qualifier is enough. You will have the car once 1.16 releases 🙂

    the next round stays live in game till the true finishing time

    It was live all the time, no outages in our backend I'm afraid, you were the only person to report it.

    My best guess is that you temporarily lost server connection at the time you were looking to do the Qualifier, which caused the Events to disappear.

    PJ you mention poland, but new Zealand, USA and argentina are just as bad

    That's why we're using Spain and Australia next 😉 

    We only use non-DLC content for the Qualifiers, so after last year we picked the 3 "least cuttable" Locations we could. I'm sure for future titles this is something we won't have to deal with, depending on what "track limit" systems are in place 🙂

    Question for PJ: is there a typo in the rulebook for the qualifying final stages? Stages 2 and 3 match the stages we drove in the online qualification but stage 1 is now the reverse and not the forward. Is this correct or should it be the same stages?

    I can bring it up next time I chat to Motorsport Games. The change for Round 1, Week 1, Rally was a last-minute one, so maybe an oversight.

    Would have been better if you actually took the time to fix the "cuttable" areas.

    It was discussed back during 2019 Season.


    There are a few reasons for why it was not done (all reasonable, but not worth going into here), but one I would like point out is that every track limit update requires:

    • A full redownload of a Location's assets (usually 10+ GB per location)
    • A total wipe of over a year's worth of Leaderboards
    • AI rebalancing


    Those changes impact all players, and given how much criticism we get from the side of the game and updates to begin with, clearing up all cuttable areas and forcing a 100 GB update on all players (whether they are into esports or not) does more harm than good. The compromise for 2020 season was to avoid Locations with excessive cuts, like Poland.


    All that being said, the design team as been taking a closer look at things like this and for future titles is considering how best to solve it. There are multiple theoretical solutions I can think of (more barriers, more reset areas, "sticky grass" etc.), but i guess we'll have to wait and see 🙂

    Maybe I explained myself wrong. I tried to ask is cars default tune setup in time trial equal to stock setup in World series qualifier? Of course I know that I can tune setups in time trial.. But as I mentioned, time trial default tune and qualifier stock setup felt different.

    The World Series car should in theory be the same as stock in Time Trial.

    At the very least, it's the same as stock in Custom.


    Could be that it's on Medium tyres 🤔

    Hello PJ and thank you for the reply.

    Unfortunately I don't see the wheel in the input menu, only the Dualshock 4 is listed there.

    Will the game ever be updated to resolve this ?




    It is currently not planned I'm afraid, as we're nearing end of updates for the title as a whole and it's too late to add it to v1.16.

    I'll keep an ear out though, and if that changes will share an update.

    I just bought the new Fanatec WRC Elite wheel with the CSL Elite base and is not working on DIrt Rally 2.0 PS4.

    Everything works fine on any other game, even Dirt 4.


    Hi there,

    Checked in with our inputs specialist who has looked into it and here's our findings:

    • DiRT Rally 2.0 handles wheels differently to previous DiRT games, in that it detects the rim and the base as separate units.
    • As the Fanatec WRC Elite wheel is brand-new, we do not have an input map stored in the game (ie, no default button layout).


    Here's what we'd recommend you do:

    1. Have a controller and a wheel (+rim) plugged in at the same time.
    2. With the controller, navigate to the Inputs menu and scroll down to your wheel.
    3. Select the wheel and head to where you can assign buttons.
    4. You should (hopefully) be able to assign your buttons and pedals from there.


    You might end up having to navigate menus in the game with a controller, but if this works you would still be able to drive with the wheel.

    @PJTierney how do you overlay picture on game screen?

    I grabbed a screenshot of real footage online (and of F1 2010) and put it into Streamlabs OBS at 50% opacity.

    Next, I send my gameplay feed into the software too. When I'm setting the camera up I look at the capture software and not my TV/monitor 🙂
