    DiRT Rally 2.0: Report Bugs Here

    Another thing: I created a custom championship with just RX events, and it seems that the game freezes between every event just after the podium and the championship points. I’m on PS4 Pro. Anyone else noticed?

    DiRT Rally 2.0: Report Bugs Here

    I got the «Mr Rallycross» trophy. I created a custom championship with three RX events. After the second win, the trophy popped. 😮 I think the reason was that I did a daily challenge in My Team just before I started the custom championship. Obviously completing a 4-rounder in My Team counts as a victory towards this trophy!? In that case, I would call this a bug.

    More acid rain. My team, Weekly rally in New England (USA), H1, driving the Citroën DS21. I’m using a PS4 Pro.
  4. But I have the season pass from buying the Deluxe edition. I’m not paying twice. Why is this happening?? 😡
  5. Started up DR2.0 and went into My team and Events, doing first the RX Daily (outside view), then I went into the Daily in Wales driving the Lancia H3, and I got the weather effects shown in attached picture. My system is a PS4 Pro. There is absolutely no way to see anything driving! Shouldn’t this been fixed by now?? 🤨

    Monaco - Ice and snow

    @DocStrangelove, seeing those replays just confirms what I said earlier, imho. The gamemodel in DR2.O has simplyfied this aspect in a way that is very noticable for many of us. I also assume that you play the game like I do, with all driving aids turned off. The video with the Ascona, I experience the track mostly as snowy but dry - no black/blank ice in the wet as far as I can see. But I can agree that the sound indicates wet conditions which is a bit strange since visually it looks like dry snow swirls after the car and not slush or wet snow.

    Monaco - Ice and snow

    @ianism, I’m not going to claim one thing or another, but tyres and compund are complex science. How well a «summer» tyre works on the road depends on compound, treadpattern and lots of other stuff. Is it intermediate tyres? Slicks? Etc etc. In southern parts of Norway winter tyres are mandatory from November 1st until one week after Easter. When it comes to DR2.0 we should be able to pick between Winter tyres and studded winter tyres as well as the ordinary «soft» tyres when driving in Monte Carlo.

    Monaco - Ice and snow

    @DocStrangelove, it is called black ice because it looks like if the asphalt is wet, but it actually is ice from something we call «underkjølt regn» translated to «undercooled rain»/«unterkühlter Regen» if that makes sense? Black ice is extremely dangerous and we have these conditions several times during the winter. In your first video it looks like something similar, but the ice has probably been formed by the sun melting the snow to water which again has frozen to ice. In addition it looks like it has been snowing covering the ice, so no doubt there is almost zero grip. In DR2.0 this is how the game reacts. Problem is that the game works like that also when it is only snow as well, like in your second video. There is no difference between ice and snow in DR2.0, and evry little snow patch will make the car want to spin, and that’s not right, imho. I also did a timetrial just now in Col de Turini - Sprint en descent with the Renualt 5, first with winter tyres and then with soft tyres. The winter tyres had a slight advantage on ice (and snow), but on bare asphalt there was no differnence, so my conclusion is there is really no reason for choosing other tyres than winter tyres in MC. All in all, the game has simplyfied the winterconditions by not seperate the snow from the ice, and I think the tyre model in the game is also lacking. I guess these two aspects makes the game a little bit oversimplyfied for those of us who is living in these conditions. Not a gamebreaker, though, I still enjoy the game very much. 🙂

    Monaco - Ice and snow

    @Auduns, I totally agree. Another Norwegian here. 😁 They have confused snow and white ice with black ice. Black ice is formed by rain that freezes as it lands on the ground or from melt water done by the sun that freezes because the ground is very cold. The tyres do not behave like in Monte Carlo in this game on normal ice and snow. Only on black ice. @mirk1983, I’m living at 60 degrees north and it is approximately the same latitude as where rally Sweden is held: Have you noticed how much light there is at dusk/dawn and at night? The stages that starts at 00:17 seems like mid June, and not in february or there about. Last year we had +30 degrees celcius in eastern Norway in June. 😁 Even in the evening like 17:07 it is pitch black outside in the winter in Norway/Sweden, but in the game it looks like it is high noon. 😄
  10. I have to say that I appreciate their efforts and I hope our speculations are right that there will be season 3 and 4. I think all the locations (both RX and rally) are excellent, and so are the cars, and I want them coming in the future. Still, I hope they would work on the core of the game as well: As you say no sense of progress or achievements, and this goes for both rally and RX. Generally I think this game does a decent job competing against other players online, and against AI, but I think the game misses totally when it comes to competing against yourself. We have a time attack mode completely cut off from everything else in the game, and that’s it. I remember how I enjoyed the corner mastery from Shift1 and Shift2, and I think something like that could be very enjoyable and useful in a rally sim like DR2.0. If we could have corner mastery on each corner on the RX tracks where you get an achievement for doing the ideal line (two variant: 1. for fastest time and 2. in traffic) in that spesific corner, imho this would make it more interesting.
  11. I must say I agree with the less RX the better. I have still almost not touched the RX content in the game except for the necessary to platinum the game. The rally content (especially new locations) in the new Seasons (3 and 4?) will decide if I will buy the additions or not.

    DiRT Rally 2.0: Clubs

    I really went through my accounts today, and it seems I had used another e-mail address probably for Grid2 6 years ago. Thanks, mate, for trying to help me out. 🙂

    DiRT Rally 2.0: Clubs

    Ok, I don’t think it is very userfriendly. I tried to join and got this message when trying to connect the PSN-account to RaceNet: The PlayStation Network profile you are trying to link is already linked to a different Codemasters Account. But I have only one Codemasters account... 😞

    DiRT Rally 2.0: Clubs

    I’m sorry if this has been answered before, but why can’t we join clubs directly in the game and not through an URL? Is this because clubs are in beta, or will it be permanently?
