    As is the most definitely not an RS500.

    Dirt 2.0 Trophy/Achievement issues

    Still have the same Group A/B issue on Xbox. For the Kit Car one, have you tried buying an additional car? It unlocked for me after buying another Seat. The “gifted” cars don’t count as a purchase.
  3. I wander how similar it will be to the original track they used for the Internations Cup in the early 90’s.

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    Just started a new championship at Masters level using the F2 Kit Cars. I’m using the Golf for the first time and have no engine upgrades yet, running with soft tyres, 1 spare and my own setup for the car that I put together using the shakedown before the first stage. First event is Argentina and after 4 stages I’m 7th in class and about 40 seconds off the pace of the leader (who just happens to be the same person that won the previous championship at Elite level) but it is quite close from 2nd to 10th. Normally I don’t tend to look, but out of interest I have checked the Leaderboard times after each stage to see how I and other human players compare to the ai. So far the times I have set have placed me 6th, 7th, 7th and 1st on the cross platform leaderboards for the respected stages and only 2 of the times ahead of me were fast enough to have beaten the ai in a stage. In fact on the stage where I set the current fastest time, I only finished 9th against the ai.

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    I think it depends on what class you drive. I’m currently doing Elite in H3 RWD in the Ascona and after 5 events I’m 3rd in the championship after a DNF in Poland. The thing is, I haven’t won any events so far. Apart from the DNF I’ve finished 3rd, 2nd, 2nd and 5th. One of the second places (Wales) only happens because the runaway leader crashed out and I then made an error trying to chase a 4 second deficit on the final stage. On average, I have won around 2 stages per event, but there is usually at least one car that seems to have a rocket engine attached to it each time. On the other side of the argument, I have previously done the Elite championship using the R5 Polo (for achievement purposes). Usually I’d stay away from the R5 class because I think they are too easy to drive badly and get away with things that would usually end badly in other classes. I was winning events by over a minute and in the case of Germany (my personal favourite) I was close to 3 minutes ahead! Compare that to the H3 event where I could only manage 5th. It’s also been stated in the early weeks after this game was released that the H2 FWD class was affected by ridiculously fast times, even on the lower difficulty levels.

    Dirt 2.0 Trophy/Achievement issues

    Well as I said a few posts up, it didn’t work for me. That’s why I’m raising the issue again so that it doesn’t get lost in the black abyss beyond.

    Any word on these bugged achievements still being investigated?

    Dirt 2.0 Trophy/Achievement issues

    I bought a 3rd Audi and Evo 6 last night and neither achievement popped. I’ll try again when I get the next garage rotation. Can now confirm, I now have 3 of each Group A and Group B vehicle and still neither achievement has popped.

    What about this one?

    Windows won't break

    These days all rally cars are required to use anti shatter (sticky clear plastic) film on the windows if they are glass. The idea is to keep the glass together in place should the windows smash. Maybe this is where they’re going?

    This is gonna get me started on the Sierra Cosworth/RS500 debate. It’s bugged me for years that Dirt games have referred to the Cosworth as an RS500.

    He’s not the youngest of chaps now either. I remember Brian from Rallycross back in the late 80’s/ early 90’s. He had an immaculate fwd mk4 Escort back then before switching to a 6R4 and sadly rolled it into a ball on what I seem to remember was his first outing with it at Lydden.

    Dirt 2.0 Trophy/Achievement issues

    I’m still having issues with the Group B 4WD and Group A car ownership achievements. I currently have 2 of each car in my garage which has progressed the Group A achievement up to 75% complete (not sure which car did that unfortunately). I’m on One X, digital deluxe edition installed to a WD 3GB external HD if that helps to diagnose the issue.

    Let's talk hardcore damage

    I’d go back even further than RBR for a hardcore damage model in a rally game. Does anyone remember Mobil 1 Rally Championship? Engines would overheat and misfire. Suspension would collapse. I had numerous occasions where I had clutch and gearbox damage that led to slipping, poor gear changes and eventually losing certain gears altogether. The stages were long enough that the wrong tire choice could see you wearing out tires before you’ve finished the second stage of that run. I can’t remember how many attempts it took me before I finished my first event, let alone won one. It was the challenge of trying to get to the finish that kept me playing over the pile of racing/rally games that I had at the time. These days it seems like most games are made “too easy” to avoid the complaints from people that want everything for nothing. Just spend some time reading the Forza forums and you’ll see the endless comments from people that want everything unlocked and handed to them without any input because “that’s what they paid for” Make rallying challenging again.

    I play on a One X with the game installed to an external HD and an Elite controller that is more often than not plugged in with the charging cable. After a few hours of almost daily play, I have never had any sound issues. This is why bugs like this are so difficult for devs to fix. They don’t always affect everyone and they are hard to replicate so finding the source of the issue isn’t a simple task.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Share your Screenshots!

    A couple of shots from the Group B RWD daily today. Love this 037 and Germany. At the time I finished the stage I was 4th Xbox time and 20th cross platform with a 6:17.613 despite a spin at the right handed after the chicanes. Taken on Xbox One X.
  17. Same. Reloaded the game multiple times throughout today and not seen any. Xbox One X if that helps

    Dirt 2.0 Trophy/Achievement issues

    My ‘Upgraded’ achievement finally popped after upgrading my 8th car and that doesn’t include the Fulvia or S1600 Corsa. Still have the progress on the the other 2 achievements showing 4/5 Group B cars owned and 2/4 Group A cars owned. This is after repeated attempts at selling and repurchasing multiple cars.
  19. Further to my post above, one of the biggest differences I had with regards to controlling the steering ‘snap’ that you get with a controller came after I adjusted the advanced controller settings. Personal preference is going to vary when it comes to this but I’ve gone with the following and it has made a world of difference with RWD cars and the Group B cars. Steering Sensitivity - 90 Steering Linearity - 3 Steering Deadzone - 3 (I’m using a newish controller so you may want this a little higher if you have an older controller with some play in the sticks) With this current controller setup I was 25th overall (after ignoring the negative time in 1st place) and 2nd Xbox on yesterday’s H2 RWD in New Zealand. That was in the rain and on a stage that I usually have major issues with (clipping the low banks and getting punctures), especially when pushing.
  20. Is there a specific reason you have your buttons set as they are other than for preference? Personally I find it extremely difficult to have anything more than the brakes (LT) and steering (LS) on the left of the controller due to a lack of dexterity. Because of this I have my gears mapped to the A (up) and X (down) buttons where I can easily rock my thumb back and forth over them. But without doubt you should have the throttle mapped to an analogue input to get the smoothest control. As for the adjustable settings for steering in the options menu, they are generally set too high for a controller but I’m not able to remember where I’ve set mine without seeing the screen in front of me.
  21. No you’re not, but I’d be even more excited if there were some ‘proper’ tracks to go with them. These current single line kart tracks with their gimmicky joker laps are nothing on the tracks I grew up at.

    Season 2 Info, will there be a season 3

    A proper Brands, not the **** fantasy joker lap rubbish that Project Cars 2 tried to pass off. If they wanted/had to add a joker lap then why not use the layout from the mid 90’s that went round Clearways? I wouldn’t mind seeing Croft, Cadwell and Swindon added too.
