    Upcoming dash cam?

    @CMHarrySemple @cmMikeRobson Please, PLEASE can you add an FOV option to the CONSOLE versions. It has been asked for so much on these forums and by so many. And if a slider really is not possible for whatever reason, pleease can we at least can we have what @Jake Cushing suggested in the past: Implementing just one alternative FoV setting for the consoles, at around 45vFOV, alongside the default 55vFOV, as a toggle: "FOV: Normal/Low" I am also using my TV's zoom feature to do this currently. It works, but i have to keep zooming back out to check my leaderboard times and I am also no longer able to see HUD elements when I drive 😞
  2. Only ONE week left to see if you can survive the current REAL-RALLY event in Australia! So far only ONE member has actually managed to complete all 8 stages! Are you able to beat their time? Join the REAL-RALLY Club to find out (link above)!

    The Pacenotes Thread

    Use this thread to write down any wrong or missing pacenotes you come across. This should make it easier for the devs to add them (if they are able to at some point). In order for them to find the location you are referring to on the stage, I guess a video would be most helpful, but a good description could also work. I'll start- Those bridges with no sides in New Zealand definitely need a "Caution!" before each one.

    Event Duration: Ongoing?

    @PJTierney When creating an event in Clubs, you get the option to select an event duration. The max is 31 days, and after that the event is over. I would love to have the option to keep my events running all the time and not end after a limited time. I know that would mean there wouldn't ever be a winner of the event, but would still get to see the leaderboard for the event, which is fine. Do you think its something that could be implemented?
  5. Hello everyone. I have just launched the club REAL-RALLY. Each event aims to simulate a full day of the real World Rally Championship (WRC). This consists of 4 long stages, followed by a 30min service, and finally a 2nd loop of the 4 stages. To make things interesting, the 2nd loop will be in worse weather conditions. All assists OFF, Hardcore Damage ON. Each month the location will change. This month is Australia. Please join if you are interested to experience the most authentic way to play this game.

    Very low sound of voices in RX

    Yes the RX spotter cannot be heard at all during a race even when turned up to 100! This seems like a very easy fix for the team and I have put it in the 1.7 bug reporting thread located in the Technical Assistance section. Please find my post and upvote it there, as that is how the devs are more likely to notice it.
  7. @PJTierney Thank you so much for clearing that up! You explained it very well indeed. It would be nice for future games if you include these kind of descriptions in the game itself. Same goes for descriptions for assists/ force feedback settings etc. Please can you confirm if none, low, medium, high and max options in clubs are in fact "fixed" levels of degradation, providing a level playing field no matter the running order. Also please let us know whereabouts in the running order each of those options simulates, eg none=1st, low=5th... etc etc. Thanks again!

    DiRT Rally 2.0: Version 1.7 Bug-Reporting Thread

    In some stages, particularly New Zealand, there are black and white frames at random points of the stage. just 1 frame at a time so it is like a quick flicker. PS4, Deluxe edition, G29 wheel

    DiRT Rally 2.0: Version 1.7 Bug-Reporting Thread

    There is a major issue in Rallycross that I was wondering if you can address. While racing, it is impossible to hear what the spotter is saying, even if you turn up the speech volume to 100. I'm sure this will be a simple fix by simply raising the volume, and I would really appreciate if it could be done, because i'm sure he must be saying some pretty important stuff during the race! PS4, Deluxe edition, G29 wheel.
  10. You cant here a WORD the spotter is saying during a rallycross race when in cockpit view. Please increase the volume! many thanks!

    The realistic way to play + Hot seat multiplayer solution

    Saving the event is only saving the location/weather etc. But if you quit out of it at any point in the event, it will stay in the RESUME section, (where it will say 1 championship suspended) and keep track of what stage you are currently on. But the reason why hot seat multiplayer is now possible is that you can start another event for your friend, which will also be saved in the RESUME section (and it will now say 2 championships suspended). This is really great news for those who loved playing RBR hot seat multiplayer.
  13. If anyone is feeling that the damage is not hardcore enough and the tire choice is pointless due to hardly any wear, it's probably because you are driving in events MUCH shorter than would be in real life. An average day in a WRC event would start with a 15 min service in the morning, then around 4 stages, then a 30 min service at midday, then those same 4 stages driven again in the afternoon. So if you want to replicate a typical day of a real WRC rally event, make a Custom Championship. Choose a country, and then add only the 4 long stages (these are MUCH closer to a real stage length), then add the same 4 stages again in the same order (so 8 stages total). I am aware the 4 stages are not totally unique, but the reverse versions make them feel different enough. Now add a 15 min service on stage 1 and a 30 min service on stage 5. As for weather conditions, I like to choose daytime dry for the first four stages, and daytime/sunset wet for the last 4 stages (driving after sunset in WRC is very rare) Of course have Hardcore Damage ON. Driving 4 long stages before a service means that damage will finally be something you will worry about, and you will be forced to drive much more carefully. Also, you can no longer get away with always choosing soft tires. Hot Seat Multiplayer: Now if you want to experience hot seat multiplayer like RBR, save the event. You can save up to 12 events, which means you can make this type of event for all countries. Choose one of the saved events, and after you finish the first stage, quit and create a new championship (this one will be for your friend). Load the same event and have them start their championship. after they finish the first stage, quit, and you will now see you have 2 suspended championships in the RESUME section. So now you can just take turns to do the stages in your own championship. The reason for doing it this way is that you each have your own car damage carried over and your own overall event times saved. After the last stage just look at your overall times to determine who won between you and your friend.

    Improvements for Dirt Rally 2.0

    You are now able to view the instrument cluster HUD in cockpit view. This is very useful when you cant see the gear/speedo in the car. I think its in the preferences menu
