    DiRT Rally 2.0 - V1.1 - found a bug? Post it here!

    Many of us thought the same after Dirt 4 and we are waiting for the game to be completed before giving any money to Codemasters. The game is not ranking particularly well in the UK charts during the first week even though its a British game. That might be an indication of some people getting tired of the same problems. Still some people will buy it blind, which I understand if you are a rally fan, but not if you think twice about what they have done in the past. I don't know if they have financial problems or they need to release in a rush to keep the investors happy, but I'm almost sure that the way they are doing things they will not be season 3 (even season 2 could be changed as per terms and conditions) and Dirt 5 will be £90.

    That might be an extra weather condition known as "black ice". I bet you've got the Deluxe version.

    why can't Codemasters do like In DR 1

    Writing that takes time and doing some research plus enjoying it. That guys is now gone.

    So the translation of this could be that it's not really broken, it's just the way it was designed. So I guess it won't be changed the same way the physics weren't fixed in Dirt 4 because it was affecting all cars and it was too much work. See you in Dirt Rally 3.0 (aka Dirt 4.2)!

    DiRTy Gossip Thread

    Codemasters should react faster. Everyone knows how game reviews work now adays and how easy an idea spread. The game can have potential, but with all the problems the game have they have done nothing for 2 weeks, and that's a lot of time. They could at least explain the plan and release small fixes, they have gone quiet as in Dirt 4. Im sure the next thing will be: they have been working hard, much more to come, etc, etc. It's sad, but it looks like another game that will die early. You can not just base your game and player base on hype. And after all is a £70 game, that's an expensive one, people have rights to want a Deluxe support.
  7. I think most people want endless content with the same base game. Physics can improve slowly, same with graphics. It's anying with that with every iteration of the game we are almost at the same point.
  8. I agree 100%. Its an easy task if they really wanted to do it. I would love Dirt Rally 1 with mod support, and new countries and tracks as DLC. I would even pay a monthly subscription for that. That would be supporting us and making us love the game and company. I honestly don't know why there are not more open source racing games. I know it's a hell of a lot of work, but so it's Blender, and if you just mention it people laughs at you like... Sure why do you not want to go to the moon too. And just rally, please, no WRX.

    Dirt Rally 2.0 - complete start over

    It seems like the technology is too advance, only Codemasters have the clue to understand it so far. But I trust them, the said its awesome.

    Dirt Rally 2.0 - complete start over

    Is this for real? I guess we could buy a few copies of the game just in case. That's the future of gaming. #NewProfileNewKeyYesBuy
  11. I think the pitch black thingy is a great realistic feature, there are romours about Ogier driving blindfolded is some short stages guided by Ingrasia and the Dirt Rally like force feedback. Only in this game you can enjoy things like that, I really appreciate those little things.

    Dirt Rally 2.0 - complete start over

    It's Racenet protecting Racenet from cheaters. It's an AI technology developed by Codemasters to keep the users happy with fair leader boards. Imagine what people could do if they were allowed to restart their progress! They could look like they have always been that good! That way you can also track your progress.
  13. Of course, you know I'm always open to answer any question about the future of virtual rally. Plans are: release the Preview edition in February, then DLC Season 1, then DLC Season 2 and then release the Full edition by August (this is Preview + DLC + VR). The Deluxe version includes Preview and DLC. After that Brum Brum (tm) and getting ready for Dirt 5 and Rally 3.0. In the meanwhile WRC8 finally released, which I hope it's great with all the extra testing during 2018 and 2019. You are going to enjoy Dirt 5 guys, with improved tarmac physics and finally 90% of the WRX tracks.
  14. Unfortunately the Deluxe version is not the complete game. You will have to wait for news on VR price. After that the game will be released as a finished game but they might brand it as "Game of the year edition" or something like that.
  15. The full game will be released in July/August. Codemasters still to confirm it though.

    CM, please no more AI on online lobby events

    It should be an optional parameter. It will be difficult to find a lobby in a couple of months, so at least if two want to play they will still feel like playing against someone.
  17. For me the problem is that Codemasters/Christina promised too much (again). It's fair to create hype, but too much artificial hype creates frustration when problems appear, even more after Dirt 4. Since the release of the first Dirt Rally they changed the attitude to say "this will be awesome guys", "we are listening", "we might or might not have something great coming", "patch in 2 weeks", "this will be added after release", and so on. When you play the role of being cool and close to the people, it's easy to find out when you are not honest. And people can make mistakes once but when the same story gets delivered we learn. Dont get me wrong, the game might be entertaining and good, but when you promise gold make sure to hear the complaints when you don't deliver it, or the privious silly mistakes come back. Customers need to think about what they are buying, and take a breath before accepting what the marketing team is saying. This applies for any product really. I'm really sceptical about the DLC bit, I'm almost sure there will be no more seasons. Instead as I see it, they are just selling the game split in 2 parts, so £20 extra per copy. They should put the head down and say "sorry, we really make a lot of mistakes and we will try or not to fix them". Instead it seems to be the same route as Dirt 4: "We are listening, in 2 weeks". They radio silence will be postponed 6 months this time. I think I own every single Codemasters rally game since I was a kid and loosing a loyal customer is as easier as cheating. They can still fix things but there are a lot of things to change. I really hope there is still someone that is a "Genius at play" and not a "Racing ahead", because some of us are "Racing somewhere". And at the end, this is a game, first World problems. So enjoy it if you like it and complain if you feel like that.

    Good morning guys! Have a good day in the office and please fix this.

    More support/dlc please? (POLL)

    I've converted 15€ to £ in my card. GBP is the new Bitcoin.

    More support/dlc please? (POLL)

    £15 is quite different from $15. And considering the Deluxe version is the equivalent of €22/£25 in Argentina, prices seem to be all over the place. I would pay £5.65 monthly to get proper support and see the game improving, not a new version every 2 years with the same problems and offering the same as the previous one.

    Happy Monday in the office guys! And please fix this!
  23. Some of us had a similar experience with Dirt 4 and its bug with AMD and the mirrors. For me with Codemasters is turning into a "test it first" experience. I have bought all rally games from them, but I prefer to wait for a few months when everything is more stable. I also get the benefit of half price.
  24. Maybe that's part of paid DLC Season 2. Extra track variants! Can't wait! Good spot.

    They already sent those keys, I don't think you can apply anymore. If you contact them I'm sure they will understand your situation and will send you a Dirt Rally 3.0 key before release (2020).
