    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Share your Videos!

    I’d like to get peoples’ thoughts on this video. Lets ignore the obvious, that it’s using a mod Codemasters doesn’t like (as it circumvents licensing agreements with manufacturers). There was a decent discussion in Discord recently about how this video is misleading due to the ultra-wide FOV making it appear faster than it already was, and whether onboards should always be representative or sometimes dolled up for dramatic effect purely as an entertainment piece and not as an educational tool. @dgeesi0 you're pretty quick, thoughts on this one? I reckon the time is beatable in an R5.

    Yeah @Eagleizer’s run was amazing, here it is. We all know the rule, if somebody shares their World Record others are obligated to beat it and I’m glad Eagleizer has smashed my time. It’s how we all push ourselves to go faster 🙂 That 2.59 is pretty close to the dry World Record, he should go for that too.

    Sure, I have the setup recorded so I'll send you screens 🙂
  4. Looks like I'm now "decent" with the wheel. Doing the Dailies every day certainly helps, good way to practice many cars.
  5. 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: COMPLETE - Day 34 - Win a DiRT Rally 2.0 Career Rally Championship at Masters Difficulty NOT COMPLETE - Win a DiRT Rally 2.0 Career Rallycross Championship at Masters Difficulty* COMPLETE - Day 13 - Set a DiRT Rally 2.0 Time Trial rally time that I cannot beat on a pad. * I abandoned this once the Colin McRae: FLAT OUT Pack was released, and instead focused on completing all of the Scenarios on Very Hard difficulty, which I managed to do. 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.

    Yeah those Achievements are all sorts of wonky and I'm afraid I don't have a solution.

    @UnderclassGDfan you know the rule 😉 Also, popping this in here. Fun video and nice setup.

    Now we're talkin' I'll shoot you a PM.

    I think you do, either that or sell your existing one and buy a new one.

    The Rally team did not develop DIRT 5. I imagine some knowledge/assets were shared though. As for what the next project is... This line of text is happy you noticed it.

    I haven't confirmed a thing 😉 https://dirtfish.com/rally/wrc/codemasters-gets-rights-to-official-wrc-game/

    Not a bad guess (disclaimer: WRC is so far out I know practically nothing about it so I'm not teasing here 😉). If you look at F1 the teams typically reveal their cars around February/March, WRC teams are around January. Reference data for things like liveries, teamwear, driver portraits etc. pretty much kicks off around then and all that stuff takes time to lock down and get into a game. Also, I assume there needs to be a certain gap between the last KT Racing WRC and the first Codemasters WRC title.

    Almost spot on 🙂 I'd put a separator between the class and the challenge name and trim the location name, like this: R2 • Daily Challenge • [flag] I'd also remove the "new challenges are available" line as I'll name the bot accordingly 😉 Gimme another look at the output and I'll make a webhook.

    When have I ever stopped?

    In the meantime could you put Jon Armstrong's livery on the Fiestas? That'd be handy 😄

    I'm confused, we weren't planning on announcing a game today 🤔
  18. It doesn't matter if I agree or not, but rather that everybody else posting in this thread agrees 🙂

    I have a 1080ti and it's served me very well, but as I further myself as a content creator I keep looking at those insane-looking 4K videos and thinking of doing similar 😄
  20. @SkyRex already has great location guides but here's a different take as I start my series 🙂 All real-time driving and teaching 🙂

    I'm starting to do location guides now 🙂

    Nothing comes to mind right now. Heck I'm looking to get a 30 series card myself to see how it handles, but that's impossible right now.
