  1. Seriously? Always Online in a Career Mode? Can't you just please stick to things that you know? Wow, there is absolutely no reason for doing something like this? Do you remember SimCity 2013? Apparently not. Sorry, I had to vent here, but damn, this might be the best Rally Game I played so far. Don't do that to me and the others. Please remove this forced always online. I want to be able to play this game in 20 years, just like your Colin McRae Rally 1998. Damn that hurts.

    I am regularly stuck in the floor. Most of the time the car can't even start driving and just being stuck at the start. If I can drive the floor collides with with the car at least every second, making non stop crashing noises. Feels like you give the Star Wars Storm Trooper's machine guns and they try deperately to hit you. As far as it seems it only happens when the track has been driven on very often by the AI.

    Allright. This is going to be my last comment on this topic. I have said everything there is to say. The remaining issues are in the hands of Codemasters. Thanks to the lack of connectivity to racenet I had plenty of time to play all the offline modes... Which are great so far. All things considered with History Championship, WRX Championship, Custom Championship and TimeTrial all this content is meaty enough and is alone worth the game for me. Heck, even without the Main Career this game might even be a better deal than DiRT3 as a whole was - apart from the lack of LAN and Monte Carlo of course . I get myself now some sweet sweet popcorn and await the sheet-storm that is approaching Codies in a few days. Have fun ranting, signing out, bye.

    championship data wiped

    ^ I recommend for you to play the History Campaign in FreePlay for now. Thats at least offline. Really sucks to get a reset after so many cups... I really better try not to restart my Career for now.

    RaceNet was a mistake.

    Nothing is wrong with racenet compared to the past. But this time all singleplayer gamers unintentionally hammer down the servers thanks to the Main Career being always onliine.

    Ugh, I had so many connection fails at this point I might better plan to play the MyTeam Career a year later when no cares for DiRT Rally 2.0 anymore...

    FreePlay is completely available with no internet connection. You get a warning at the start of the game. You get a warning at the end of the first race. After that its quiet. You have absolutely no access to anything in MyTeam-Career Mode But: in FreePlay you have access to: - timetrial - custom championship - where you can define freely in detail everything - Historic Championship - from past to present times - Official WRX Championship this makes in bearable for me longterm if servers are shut down in the future at least there is still plenty to do

    I don't understand why people even defend it. "But others are doing this too" has always been the worst excuse. I really fear that Codies servers won't hold up on the official release day and then its raining downvotes in mass - with the result no one will buy it. I want Codemasters to do great. I loved their games for a long time now. How can anyone say that this is an over-reaction when the real s-storm is just coming in a few days. I really wonder if this will have a good end.

    dirt rally 1 had no issues from the very start because single player was single player and multiplayer was multiplayer no single player gamers that flooded the multiplayer-servers

    Obviously, but its called officially Early Access. So it gets called early access because it is early acces - even if it is not what epople commonly understand by early access because they have been used to understand it as something else. More and more publisher sell "early acces" nowadays as premium...

    stop trying be perfectly correct in a multi-language forum... dude I am just saying what is going to happen I love codemasters, I will always buy their games but that will not stop them from getting bad reputation....

    Dirt Rally 2.0 is in early access..... it also says so in the store page. not race.net.... before you get angry better reread again. All I am saying is: - if race.net is already collapsing right now -> it will most likely collapse on release day and if people can't play -> there will be many downvotes this is just whats going to happen - an objective truth no emotions involved in this post it will be downvoted as hell if its not up to good on day 1 -> if it gets downvoted as hell, less people will buy it -> this means this design choice was a bad decision by codemasters

    As well, thinking about it: If race.net is already collapsing in Early Access, what will happen in 4 days at release? At this point I really wouldn't be surprised to see a loooooooot of red ratings on Steam and metacritic in a few days......

    Having the Career Mode being forced online has absolutely nothing to do with eSports. Don't be silly. It's 2019... stop predending it has anything to do with pointless always online....

    ^Yeah, true! Just thinking about it, you can play time trial offline, but at the end of the race you upload your time... -> So the Career being always online has absolutely nothing to do with cheat protection

    I don't see how making the Career Always Online results in protecting cheaters from uploading fake times? Maybe the have better cheat-protection this time, but that would have nothing to do having the Career always online.

    Not sure where to find the TaC But it always connects when it has something to upload or download from racenet. So when I play Time Trial which is possible offline, it wants to upload your time at the end. Which currently fails for me as well. So uploading times and downloading your rewards for dailys and weekly... Damn I can't see where the reason is to be always online in the career.

    ^ Freeplay seems to be always available offline. "My Team -> Career and Challenges" seems to be a complete "online experience" as a whole.

    Remove Always Online for the Career!

    ^ The whole Career is unavailable if there is not internet or no connection as far as I know from what I read elsewhere. Right now I can't connect to the career without getting this warning I uploaded in my first post.

    I really hope they are rethinking their decision and patch it out in the near future. I am sitting here and can't continue my career as well. I hope my progress isn't really lost forever.
  25. Well I don't want to hijack this thread anymore: http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/776/colin-mcrae-rally#latest So I created a new topic: How to get Need for Speed Porsche running on modern OS like Win 7 in Full HD Widescreen: There are really many patches out there on the net, so some might be redundant, some are hard to find: Need for Speed - Porsche 1. Install the game obviously, maybe you need to have the setup in compatibility mode. 2. Official 3.5 Patch can be found here: http://www.iplounge.net/download.htm 3. Fast CPU Patch Fix - > With CPU's faster than 'real' 2 GHZ the game only runs in the lowest details. This Unlocks CPU's faster than 2 GHZ -> ONLY in Windows XP Compatibility Mode NFSPU_Fast_CPU_Patch http://files.nfsko.ru/index.php?page=confirm_load&fid=699 4. Widescreen HD Fix http://www.iplounge.net/ipl2/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2305 5. Skybox Crash Patch -> Might be redundant, if you use the Widecreen-HD-Patch, but game occasionally crashes on Normandie and so on. Better explained in the readme of the Widescreen-Patch http://games.reveur.de/de/need-for-speed-porsche-unleashed/patch/single/30/Need-for-Speed--Porsche-Skybox-Crash-Patch.html 6. Additional Modifications -> PU Bonus Cars: Adds more cars to the game http://www.iplounge.net/download.htm There was a patch to fix the ugly broken Windows in the Game ( vanilla they turn black when broken ), but I don't find it. I hope, I can help some people this way, it's still a nice game.
