    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Share your Screenshots!

    Big jumps and pretty skies in Finland.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Share your Screenshots!

    I appreciate your enthusiasm, but posting so many photos like that really just dilutes their impact and makes people more likely to skip past them. Pick the 1 or 2 really good ones, and you'll impress people more 🙂

    DiRTy Gossip

    I like them in part because they're cheesy and a bit silly 😄 I suspect the game will feel just that little bit emptier if they're turned off.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Share your Screenshots!

    The non-blurred background seen through the windows is a giveaway, unfortunately—it's just a limitation of how depth buffers work 😞
  5. While that's true for people who've been through this several times, I can well imagine new players, who maybe only bought the game a couple of weeks ago, getting very concerned that their DLC isn't showing up on time.

    The 206 is pretty great 😄

    Option to entirely disable Clutch assist

    I support this idea, and personally think adding a 'Manual Sequential With Clutch' option is the best way to go.

    DiRT and DiRT 2 mods!

    Yeah that looks nice—I never did like the overly-filtered hazy look of earlier DiRT games. I don't mind a little bloom in the right places, since that's how bright lights look like IRL, but in those games it was way overdone.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Force Feedback

    I keep seeing this being repeated, but I don't recall anyone promising they'd improve the FFB, only that they'd take another look at it and see what they can do.

    DiRTy Gossip

    Honestly I think a lot of people seem to dislike him based on what they imagine him to be like, not what he's actually like. Although, that Forrest chap who does his videos is kind of annoying.
  11. If it came with a complete RaceNet reliability overhaul, great, otherwise, ugh. You think the complaining about RaceNet being down is bad now? Just wait until you need it to be up before you can drive anywhere at all.

    Crowd performance Impact

    I seem to recall that the Crowd setting (sometimes?) doesn't visually take effect until you exit the stage and start it (or another one) again. Weirdly though, I think someone was saying thst the performance does actually change immediately. Take this all with a grain of salt though, it's only a vague impression I have, so it could be nonsense.

    Upcoming dash cam?

    I'm not sure Jon's response means as much as y'all are thinking here—it could just be he wasn't sure how much he's allowed to say about WRC8 given his involvement with Codies/DR2.

    Welcome to the new GRID

    When? Because in all of the promotional stuff I’ve seen, they’ve been pretty clear that it’s a fun, pick up and play arcade game. Yes it supports high-end hardware, but it doesn’t mean it’s optimised for it.

    I think this is where the F1 and WRC games (and to a lesser extent Grid) do better than DR2—they give you a feeling being part of something bigger than just you and a car. It makes things feel more meaningful when failure doesn't just mean a big repair bill, but loss of reputation, worsening relationships with your team, etc. It's a good extrinsic motivation. I know DR2 has this to some extent with Clubs, but that relies on community support to work, and it lacks the formal team aspect. Something wholly self-contained within the game would be a big improvement, imo.
