  1. I'm really disappointed what was made out of the DR1 Finland. Graphics reduced, fog added. Finland is one of my favorites in DR1 but in DR2 CM made it far worse ... I don't know what's happening with CM. Also the big difference between the advertising pictures which PJTierney "spammed" and the reality has at least a bland taste.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Version 1.10 VR Feedback

    Brightness on the one side also on the other side it's way to dark, mainly in the woods. So this needs a more balanced approach. The seat position range is to small, that's also reported a lot of times. Steam with SteamVR and Index on Win 10

    Racenet again

    Racenet again not available, so no single player, no multiplayer only free test drives 😞 CM please patch at least the career mode that we can play even if the Racenet is unstable or not available
  4. this is correct in this version of the car and already 100 times discussed. ..

    Cannot edit profile in VR

    Yes that's one more of the bugs. CM please enable the keyboard in VR and implement the mirror so that we can use the mirror if the HMD is atm not worn, to easier write names or dial in settings with the keyboard. I don't know why there has to be this message to wear the headset, do CM think we forget to use the HMD to drive in VR?

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - VR FAQ & Performance Guide

    Sure, but the settings are mostly the same as already discussed in this thread. CPU i9 / GPU 2080ti / HMD Valve Index with 2 x lighthouses DirtFix 1.1 installed (I want to get rid of the HID USB stutter without this plug in and out of my DS4 controller routine) SteamVR Setting Video 100%, per app for DR 2 150% Nvidia driver: Anisotropic 16x Basic graphics: Multisampling off, Anisotropic off / mirror screen 1280x720 windowed (I don't need it, because the mirror is to small and can't be used to dial in the settings -> only active if HMD on your head REALLY? I would like it if it was in DR 1) Custom advanced settings based on Medium: Shader high, Texture high, Weather high, Crowd low, Cloth high, Mirrors low, Vehicle details high, Ground cover low, God rays replay, Chromatic abb. replay, Bloom off, Lens dust off VR comfort: Motion blur off As written above my biggest issue is the moving world. If I move the head slowly the world stays stable, but I move my head faster (left - right or up - down) the world is moving with my head movement. This is so weird, and it makes me feel motion sick and it's a real problem.
  7. You are welcome to hope, without hope there is no future ...

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - VR FAQ & Performance Guide

    Just to step in because the posts are now very emotional. For sure there are bugs, my biggest issue is the moving world (just stop on track and look around, for me the world moves and that's a issue), the 2nd biggest issue is the lighting which is in the shadows way to dark, sometimes i can't see anything. On the other side, DR 2 has VR support and the image is clear, the cockpits are good incl. functional indicators and with the right settings there is no stutter. But I really would like it if I could move my seat more down, in most cars I scratch the roof. I disabled the Multisampling and Anisotropic filtering (just used fixed setting in Nvidia driver to my liking), set the graphic options and SteamVR SS that i can reach 90 fps with some headroom and so I'm really having a lot of fun. I used the performance information of SteamVR to be sure not going over 9 at night with rain so that the performance graph is completely green.
  9. Do you really think that helps? A lot of mentioned and repeatedly reported bugs from 1.0 - 1.7 are not solved, even Riggs gave up with his lists. Edit: Maybe the DLC "Advanced repair station now incl. Turbo" is on the way let's see what v1.9 will bring to us.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series

    So what's learned, at the moment where you can win something nobody goes the sportsman way all are cheating what's maximum possible. If CM want to take this serious they have to check the ghost and disqualify all with a extended cut just to gain some time. So nobody will risk it and cuts to gain time are gone. This reminds me where in some games all graphics where turned down to ps1 quality because you are able to see the enemy to shoot better

    The DiRT Roadbook

    So CM finally got it, mostly negative reviews. Instead of ironing out the bugs, CM brought us the old stages of Dirt Rally 1 and the price tag is on the expensive side (even if some people justify the prices). If you look at the bug reports, the community made lists (remember the list of Riggs?) and now the game, month after the release in v1.8.1, has bugs from 1.0 not eliminated.

    Can't Connect To Racenet: Can't Play: No Money

    This online only single player DRM should be removed at all. Look at DR 1, the career mode should be possible to drive offline. Every time when CM or someone has a problem to connect to Racenet there are a lot of career reset. Sometimes bundled with the DR money gone. For the daily - weekly - monthly events nobody complains about the Racenet necessity.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Version 1.8 Bug Reports

    Game mode: Free play with custom championship with 5 stages. Saved after stage 2 in version 1.7 and re-entered the game after 1.8 update to continue with stage 3. Also tried an other custom championship with an other car to continue on stage 2 but the same problem. Game was approximately 10 minutes running before I started the event. After that I closed the game, I doesn't want to fiddle any more with the bugs. So I tried not any more races. Yesterday after the 1.8.1 update, I deleted the championships and started over. I created new ones now without the "car does not move" bug.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Version 1.8 Bug Reports

    Remove this whole up- downvote ... Bugs should not have likes at all, they are just bugs. Also PLEASE change the default ordering of the threads to "sort by date" and not "sort by vote". Each time I click on the star to view the newest posts it jumps somewhere in the thread depending on the votes This Technical Assistance forum should behave like the normal forum. Also a post that was helpful a few weeks ago is probably in an up to date view complete nonsense but because of the upvotes you get it presented as best post.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Version 1.8 Bug Reports

    The start line car does not move bug is back 😞 What I really do not understand is, why so essential bugs will not be ironed out. What platform you're playing on (for PC also state Steam or Oculus). -> Steam 2D What your PC setup/build is like (graphics card, processor etc.). -> i9, 32GB RAM, RTX 2080TI Whether you're a Standard or Deluxe user (doesn't apply to Oculus). -> Deluxe Whether or not you have any non-standard peripherals connected, like steering wheels, gaming mice etc. -> Fanatec Wheel, Fanatec HB, HE Pedals, TM Shifter
