    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Many not even that much. The last job I worked at for almost 9 years had zero paid time off. And to be clear, the US has no federal law requiring employers to give any PTO at all.

    I prefer to keep my wheel set to its maximum of 900 degrees, then calibrate in DR2 so rotation matches each car's steering ratio, even if it may not be ideal

    DiRT Rally 2.0: Seasons 3 & 4

    Happy to see Greece and Finland, but yeah... not one new rally location? 😞

    There are other hillclimb events on Earth besides Pike's Peak.

    Not pace notes, patch notes.

    Patch notes look awesome!! It's taken a long time but DR2.0 is finally shaping up to fulfill its massive potential IMO.

    Hey @urgaffel just thought I'd check in - will this make it into 1.6? Thanks again!

    Logitech G27 causes stuttering when plugged in

    On my PC I average around 100 fps (sometimes closer to the refresh of 165, sometimes closer to 60 on stages like Argentina in the rain.) The USB-related stutter seems completely independent of framerate or general game performance. The work-around for me is exactly what @F2CMaDMaXX posted above. And as he said, it occurs even in the main menu.

    Fantastic! Thanks for going the extra mile here.

    I have a video processing to Youtube right now to show what I mean. Will link when it's ready. edit: @urgaffel Video uploaded. Click timestamps in the description to go straight to each of the weather settings. I know compression makes things sucky to look at, but you can still see the raindrops aren't what they should be. Heavy rain does have them, but they are very light and you don't even need the wipers on to drive in it (totally different compared to Dirt 4.) Max settings on PC, 2080 Ti, also tried on my other PC w/ 980 Ti, same thing there. 165hz display at 100+fps.

    OK, I know you're not feeling well and some of the overly-harsh criticism wears on you and your mates at CM, but this is the kind of thing that's frustrating. There's a thread, made by Christina, specifically for bug reporting. This was reported there and more than once. Does no one from CM read those threads and report the bugs to the people who can actually effect changes? Anyway, the bug is that in anything but "heavy rain" weather settings, there are no droplets on the glass in the cockpit views. Try it yourself right now. Set up a custom championship so you can choose any of the rain settings except heavy rain, then turn your wipers off (just for ease of visibility of the windscreen effects.) There are no droplets, save for a few scattered around the edge of the wiper contact area. It's been like this since launch. You could also check out Dirt 4 to see how the rain effects should look. It's almost like in DR2, heavy rain setting = D4's light rain windshield effects and light rain setting = no rain windshield effects.

    Nice! Thanks for keeping DR2.0 humming along. Will the rain fix also include fixes for the missing windshield (windscreen ) droplet effects?

    It's bizarre that the Grid reboot even has the same cars (so the old models of the "new" Camaro, Challenger, etc.) I mean they're still cool cars and I guess technically no different from having a 1970 Camaro or whatever, but... it just seems odd to me because usually racing games featuring modern sports cars have the latest version of them, not 10 year old ones. I guess they are trying to make the least amount of work to launch the reboot by reusing as many old assets as possible.

    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.
