  1. Any chances of getting this stage remastered? My favorite rally in Dirt Rally 1 is by far Greece, but I love Wales too as it's a great rally close to where I live, so getting Sweet Lamb back is a must, and the sound inside the forest was spot on.

    Well I guess it makes sense, it an already finished product so the will just probably release the remaining DLCs and minor bug fixes. It's a shame as my connection often works in 56kb mode, I guess I will pass this time, see you in the next Dirt edition guys!
  3. A lot of people is happy about the lack of that slider, they need to find a balance between those and the ones who think it should be there. I hope they keep looking at it to see if the change don't make those customers unhappy. I'm sure it's on their priority list, right after force feedback and blurry graphics.
  4. Knowing that the disk space required is nearly 50GB and the paid extra content almost doubles the original content, will the final game take 100GB? What's the download size of an individual car? Citroën paid DLC for example?

    How to get refund

    If you don't buy it on Steam is almost impossible to get a refund. I bought a DVD copy of Dirt 4 and because you always have to use Steam the retailer is not going to make a refund.

    Having a extra rally game is awesome as it's good for anyone loving rally. WRC7 can be improved in many ways and so it does Dirt Rally 2, so I hope we see a step forward in WRC8. For me I see the two games as: Dirt Rally 2: - Physics (they are not close to real life, but they are fun and that's important in any game). - Collisions. - Good graphics. - VR Support. - WRX even though for people like me who likes pure rally is something it could be removed, but it's a positive. - Great stages but low amount. - Bad performance. - Good selection of cars including historical ones. - Price is too high. - Meh career mode. - Hype based experience (no demo). - Crappy DLC system, online requirement, bugs and also a few more bugs. WRC8 (based on 7): - Meh physics (as far as Dirt Rally from real life but less fun to drive). - Collisions feel more like bouncing. - Great graphics. - No VR Support. - Clean focus rally experience, you and the road, nothing else. - Awesome stages and multiple countries (a step ahead Dirt Rally) but some of them need improvement. - Bad performance. - Official rally cars, if they add old ones then awesome. - Fair price. - Meh career mode. - Experience based hope (no demo). - No DLC based, no online requirement and they fix bugs quicker (some of them).

    WRC 8 Livestream

    So they launch the game with 14 countries and 100 stages instead of 7 countries and 50 stages to then sell the other ones as DLC, interesting movement. I hope they sell a lot.

    Track Degradation

    Oh, THE MANUAL, that thing that used to come with a game (non Deluxe/Prime/Day One edition). It would be nice having a PDF at least.

    No one is forcing anyone to buy anything, but if you think about the pizza example again, if I see a nice picture of a pizza in a restaurant leaflet I might think the pizza look nice and I will try it. If they forget to put it in the oven for more than 2 minutes and it's still raw I would be complaining. They will probably apologize and maybe offer me a free drink. It would be very different if they say "oh, I see, the pizza is raw... please sit on this bigger table to eat your raw pizza, we will look to see if there is a problem with the oven". By the way the pizza costs £70 in this example and they told me that the desert is included but not which one (so I may or may not like it). In Codemasters game you could probably argue about false advertising with the wheel thing and how awesome was going to be, or about some things like online requirements not being explained clearly from the beginning. And hopefully the previous sentence is wrong and the did everything with the best intention, not wanting to sell more, then I take the company is struggling to deliver the game they wanted. People can buy another game, wait for the patch, understand Codemasters, but the customer is always right to complain in situations like this. Developers can be mistakes (very big some times) and I understand that because I make them every so often, but if I promised something and the customer is giving me their money I deliver, because otherwise that customer is gone. People goes over the moon sometimes with all the social media stuff, and that's not something I support, but if you feel cheated I understand people wanting something back. PD: I'm sure developers are doing an awesome work, at the end of the day they just do what they are told to. But the communication is good when they want to (before release) and missing when they want to (after release). Edit to say I'm a happy girl, just annoyed about the situation with people who spent their money and they get problems every single day. I love rally!

    Well here it goes my explanation from a developer point of view. I don't know how it works in the gaming industry but in any other similar sized project (in terms of revenue) these times are not admissible. You can't just go quiet and say to your customers you are working on a patch that will come at some point in the future, and that's even more true when the project has already been paid. Please remember you are the customer and they have made a product/project you have paid for. If there is something broken that needs urgent patching and there is a delay re-agreements are made, and that works for software development, game development or when the pizza arrives late. So the client is on its full rights to complaint and ask for a compensation (and giving you one billion ingame credits is not a compensation in anyway). I can only see a luck of respect for the customer in this situation, and in a normal scenario that client would not work with you again. I know, this is just a game, but we just get quiet because it's just a game, just £70, then they will continue doing what they do. It fine if they think a big percentage are just kids, but some of us have been playing games for decades and we need to make them realise they can not laugh in our face. And that's with all the repesct for everyone, but I'm tired of always reading people defending Codemasters as they were on payroll, when in this case they are not acting right.

    Darkness and rain all the time

    I don't think Codemasters is going to spend much more resources and money on the game based on how broken it is in certain areas. They probably have all the DLCs ready so the team can move on. It's sad but it's the same situation as the 2 previous games where they could just tweak it and make something to remember, and that's the problem, they will always leave something broke so people by the next one with a hope for fixes.

    Will you buy it at later stage? I'm on the same boat. Wanting to buy it and I've delayed it, but now I'm thinking about not getting it at all.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Car Inaccuracies

    Are you Mesa, who gave the name to mesa drivers in Linux? You definetly deserve to be a game tester, you pic more issues in 1 hour than the whole influencers/press thingy since Dirt 4.
  15. That's my question. I think this will be the last patch/DLC after season 2, will it be a paid DLC? Only included for Deluxe owners or everyone?

    Have Codemasters made any single statement about this issue?

    We are lucky they are not using the usual "We may or may not fix a bug related to a USB device connected to your PC, stay tunned :)". Since the official release there hasn't been a single update, and still they start selling the content ripped from the original game. This show how broken the DLC nonsense is in the gaming industry.

    I'm looking into this not been always visible in the first page of the forum, I will update you as soon as I have more information. This is by no means an easy task without affecting other threads and comments from people.

    Yay! Nice the developers will be answering questions. A few years back there was an article where one of the devs was explaining how the stages were created, even explaining technicallities. I hope is not a hyped marketing chat.

    To be honest this forum seem to be as buggy as the game. Why some comments are listed in Spanish, Italian or French? So I might have misunderstood you.

    Calm down! It's as simple as not buying the game, money is what hurts the guys taking the business decisions about Codemasters games.

    Yay! Awesome! Nice to see they take time to remaster an impresive game like Dirt Rally. Any chances this can bring DLCs to the owners of the original one? Maybe cross game play? I can wait to play in rainny Greece!

    Investment around DR2.0 down the drain ...

    WRC8 development time is more than enough to see a big improvement since 7. It's not like it will be the next Richard Burns Rally but I think they are moving in the right direction, not over promising and a real evolution over time. If people consider it at least as an option or alternative to Codemasters game it will be good for all of us. The variety of stages is awesome, and there is no WRX! Deal with that FIA! In regards of Richard Burns Rally I've contacted Square Enix this week but I'm not expecting a reply to be honest.
