  1. Ah right ok mate thanks for that. It's weird because the PS4 lets you use all of the buttons except for the rotary switches which you can't use in the game anyway. So I have all the buttons mapped out on the PS4 just fine, but on the Xbox I cannot. I guess I have to decide then, decent mapping and crappy graphics, or better graphics and crappy mapping?!
  2. So, yesterday I got the game on both PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, but after playing both the graphics look jaggy and textures poor compared to the One X, so decided to stick to the Xbox version. Only thing is the shift lights and screen doesn't work on the wheel when using the Xbox. But, the force feedback feels different on both consoles when using a Fanatic CSL Elite. On the PS4 the FFB settings work out of the box in default. But on Xbox the force is a lot stronger, almost too heavy and you have to make a lot of adjustments on the wheel itself and the game settings. I am using the McLaren GT3 rim, but when I go to the edit page in settings for the wheel I usually assign buttons for ERS, brake bias and fuel mix, but when you try to assign some buttons it will show it being the accelerator or gear shift for example and then be duplicated and therefore unusable. No matter what button on the wheel I press it doesn't show LSB or RSB or either trigger... It means I can't assign the MFD shortcuts I want. Anyone else had this issue?

    Codies are like a submarine on game release

    I’m pretty sure the devs did work their arses off! But does that mean I have to be happy I’ve spent money on a game that I’d unplayable in my opinion with the FFB in its current form. Why do I need to be patient, I’m not expecting perfect, but this is ridiculous! I just do not understand why I’m being attacked for my vernacular. The Codies Jihadist comment was meant tongue in cheek, but yet the very comments on this post actually ring true about what I’m saying. Would it be acceptable to buy a TV only for it to work sometimes, or a car? The point is whether it’s £50 or £5000 it should be useable, and what you are saying is that I should just put my copy in the drawer until such time the issues are fixed?? And you question my logic!!

    Codies are like a submarine on game release

    But does your own comments not go to show that despite numerous feedback from early access users and testers, they still released the game in this state? I know it takes time to solve these issues, but Codies have a history of releasing a fix for one issue which inherently causes another. Then eventually after chasing their tail, we'll be told no more patches are being released as they are working on the next project. It's just a common theme with this lot, on Dirt and F1 games, and not like the transparency that the CEO of Slightly Mad Studios shows when faced with these issues. And that was what motivated my submarine comments. It almost negates the need for beta testers and early access, as it turns out us the paying customers are the real beta testers. As an example, PUBG was released in early access for what seemed like an eternity, but as a result, it was cheaper and you knew where you stood. You realised it was not the finished article and accepted this. I think it's the fact you are paying good money for what is essentially an unfinished game.

    Yep, you are correct Sir! Move on, nothing to see here....

    Ok, I'll accept the 'Jihadist' comment might seem strong, but when you face constant criticism for mentioning well-known bugs, it becomes tiring for those complaining as it does for those defending. I am perfectly capable of phrasing my criticism in a constructive way, but no matter what way it is vocalised, it seems some will not accept a bad word said about the devs. And it's these complaints, that I would hope to make Codies try harder in the future to prevent such glaring bugs. I cannot accept that the FFB works, I have a Fanatec CSL Elite and there is not one shred of feedback in the game aside from crossing cattle grids or going off-road. I do not know you any more than you know me, and I am not an unreasonable person. But, it seems game after game (not just talking Codies here) seem to release games laden with issues. EA, Ubisoft.... I personally would rather a game is delayed and be released with the bugs patched than releasing a game with major issues.

    Your condescending tone is quite frankly rude and not constructive either, but if you feel better for doing it then, by all means, go ahead and knock yourself out!

    You can insult my analogy all you want, and I suppose by using sarcasm you are living out your role as protector of Codies, further justifying my statement about the converted die-hard that will not seem to accept Codies are guilty of doing this over and over again! I hardly think by calling out Codies for releasing a game with a major bug (No FFB) is bashing a game that costs £50!! I have no issues waiting, but in the same token why should I? I did not realise there was an FFB bug until after I installed the game. You call it a bashing, I call it expecting the product I paid for to work as it should. And this will be the moment whereby someone will say "well it works ok for me" Well great! But it does not here and that is why I am showing my frustration on the very forum designed for such communication! I did not realise there was an issue complaining about my experience of the game....
  9. Anyone notice how Codies boast about this feature and that prior to release, akin to a submarine on the surface. Then, at game release where they know it’s a bug ridden mess the Captain orders the sub to go into the deep blue sea breaking radio contact lol. I’m sure Codies think it’s a great tactic after all of us mugs... ahem I mean customers blindly buy this nonsense year in and year out.... I’m just waiting for the Codie jihadists who have been preached to and converted, to launch their defence of this sham of a game and the devs!

    ffb fixed, some comms from devs

    Completely agree there mate

    I’m not on Instagram or Twitter! Surely it would be wise posting on the devs forums? 🤔 can’t believe who blindly willing some people are to follow Codies and defend them no matter the mess of a game they put out!

    Awful FFB! Well done Codies

    That’s all great, but how did they get it through testing and ship it in this state? Do they not QC the major features??

    Awful FFB! Well done Codies

    Codies has a long history of not communicating fixes for major issues! They’ve done it with F1 games for years. I wish another dev would take up their franchises and breathe new life into these games. DR2 is Dirt 4 in a different guise.

    I’m appalled at the lack of feedback! My grandad at 89 had more feeling in his willy than this game!
  15. Got DR2 today and after installing the patch was stunned at the lack of feeling in the steering using a Fanatec CSL Elite. There is no vibration unless you pass a cattle grid! The road surface is the most important aspect of a rally game, the fact you can’t feel anything removes the immersion. F1 2018 at least gets this right and I’ve liked the feeling you get back through the wheel, and that’s racing on smooth circuits. Way to go Codies! Coming to a patch near you next year.....
