    New ffb impressions

    FFB is a big improvement. They did NOT add "fake canned" effects, there are still no rough surface vibrations like Dirt Rally (whether you like that feature or not, it's still not here.) However the information felt through the wheel is a lot better. I suggest if you feel FFB is actually worse now, you have some sort of configuration problem. One thing I noticed is that with the default settings of 100 for all FFB effects, it felt pretty good compared to before, where I had to reduce SAT and wheel friction quite a bit to feel right. Now the defaults feel just about perfect, at least on my G27.

    Those pics of the 911 SC... ūü§™

    Huge rhythmic stutter on high end PC

    That sounds like a completely different issue. The one people are talking about in this thread is a constant rhythmic stutter that happens at all times during the game, even sitting in the menus.

    Yep, the Germany rally files are now in the locations folder.

    Gotta say I'm really happy with the 911 SC and 037 (even if one of those is just rehashed content.) Can't wait to hear the sound of the 911 - it's gonna be awesome if the M1 is any indication.

    Man, not even one new location for rally in the DLC? Really disappointing.

    Disappointing liveries (console)

    Well, 1) what are you basing this on? I loved using the livery editor. It wasn't like the ones in Forza or Gran Turismo where you pretty much have to be a skilled artist if you want to create something besides a few stripes and some logos. Choosing from several patterns is simple and takes 3 minutes to do for anyone. 2) It was already developed... for Dirt 4. Sure there would have been some work involved in using it in DR2 because any new car models need skins to be set up for it, but overall it seems like a waste to have ditched it completely when it worked so well. And for the cars that are licensed without other livery options, well.. so what? There are only a tiny handful of those, so just lock them out from livery editing. It seems like you're bending over backward to defend the laziness on display for the liveries, lol...

    Disappointing liveries (console)

    Wish we could at least get the Dirt 4 livery editor... all of the liveries that aren't based on real ones are so low-effort it's just sad (one flat color, and 2 or 3 sponsor logos - and the rest are no better than something we could make with the Dirt 4 editor.) Also, the ones that come with Season 1 are really bad, too. Seriously if you're going to advertise liveries as part of the DLC, CM, at least put a little effort into them.

    WE NEED A RE-LAUNCH - let's brainstorm!

    Great way to encourage participation by calling people "entitled little #$%#s" just for voicing their opinion. K, bye.

    Yes, it's definitely standard industry practice to keep a much smaller team on a project once it's gone live since the heaviest workloads of the development process have been completed. However, what's not standard is to shuffle the human resources before significant feedback has even been addressed.

    Well, we already know the DR2 team is down to a skeleton crew with the key devs having been moved to other Codies projects. At this point, I don't think we'll see any of these requested fixes aside from maybe FFB and bug fixes for critical/game-breaking bugs. The rest of their effort will be wrapping up DLC through Season 2.

    Ore stuff? Is there going to be some kind of mining minigame?

    ffb fixed, some comms from devs

    Don't make claims like that if you can't back it up, thanks.

    Speaking of liveries, the the season 1 ones so far have been really bad. No offense intended to whoever made them, but it looks like they were thrown together in about 30 minutes.

    ffb fixed, some comms from devs

    Wow, where did all the "the FFB is actually perfect" feedback come from out of the blue? Meanwhile Steam reviews are still mixed, largely due to FFB feedback. edit: What really grinds my gears is when people such as CalvinCar don't just give their own feedback (which of course is perfectly fine) but they go out of their way to explain how everyone not holding the same opinion is wrong, ignorant, inexperienced, etc. I don't care what your feedback is whether it's that the game is the pinnacle of sim racing or it's shovelware garbage, just post how YOU feel and leave it there. Even some light debate over specific points is fine, but don't actively attack other viewpoints. Reminds me of this user who posted a lot in Dirt 4's first few months who slavishly defended its physics and aggressively attacked anyone who disagreed to the point of turning into a troll about it. Now I'm seeing this kind of behavior again...
