  1. Question. How does the difficulty level work? It would be nice having a slider from 0 to 120 or something like Project Cars. It feels great adapting the rivals to you and progressing bit by bit. 


  2. Yay! I have been testing the new DLC content for the last 3 years, I can confirm that the stages feel great. During the beta there was a bug in one of the German stages, where the voice says "1 left, 1 left" when it should be "1 right, 1right" at the beginning of the stage if the Spanish co-driver is selected. I hope they have had time to fix it will all the new developments.

    Also thanks Codemasters for releasing the DLC so quickly. It almost feels like you could have included it with the base game, I love how you tease as all, even for a few days. 

    Any chance of realising a DLC with the music from Dirt Rally 1?

  3. For me de problem are how they plan the DLCs. Fair enough they are a business and they want as much money as they can get from people playing their games, but selling a game with little content and teasing with extra content that they could include in the base game feels like cheating.

    I don't like the DLC stuff but if you are going to do it add value to the client, don't just steal money. There are games like Frostpunk were they support the game for a year or more with free DLCs, they truly support their game. For me that's saying, thanks customer, we want you with us. The other way around is more like saying, we want your money.

    At the end of the day they should want as many people as possible playing their game, so people can find someone when you join an online rally. And from there in a year's time offer an expansion, 6 more rallies or whatever but not 3 months later.

    And of course always telling the customer what they are going to get in advance, as if I'm paying money I know what I'm going to get.

    Here are all of your posts from the previous forum I believe: https://forums.codemasters.com/profile/48623-codingracer/?do=content&type=forums_topic

    If something is missing you could google it (like: "codemasters forum " + the thread name). Some threads appear as hidden, but finding them like that and replying to them will fix it. If you seriously believe your stuff is gone, you should contact the one and only forum administrator. This is the way I avoid tagging people I guess.

    Thanks!

    Why is a NASA computer recommended? Graphics looks kind of similar to Dirt 4, plus it runs on consoles? Is this a port? Dirt Rally was awesome because it was a PC game in first place.

    That's not a NASA computer. My pc is 3+ years old and meets all that beside CPU.
    Those CPU were launched on Q4 2017 and Q1 2018. I know most people have great machines, but I'm just curious if a lower spec computer will run it fine too.

  6. On stages:

    - There are 4 long routes at each location (two are reverses of the first two)
    Ouch! The bug is back, it has translated 2 stages into 4 :D.

    So 2 long stages per location + 2 long reversed + 4 sections of each long stage + 4 sections reversed of each long stage = 12 stages. Thanks for the confirmation.

    Any news about the DLC strategy? It would be nice to know price and what's included before buying the game. Think that the ones waiting for this to buy will buy the game cheaper later on if nothing is said. Any clarifications?

    Anyone fancy a rival third discord for all the really cool kids?
    You must be referring to CodingRacer.
    Yea I think @codingracer will be starting the 'codemasters soon to announce wrc 9' discord. 
    I will be beta testing the forum in the meanwhile. The current one has a known issue with dates (6 months gets translated to 2 weeks as Christina reported, 2019 to 2018 as reported by myself and so on). I hope this will be fixed.

    PD: I've just edited the comment to avoid the issue. 

  8. Remember the company made a big step ahead on the 1st of June. That brought more money but less flexibility too, so things has change slightly. It's not so easy when you have to delivery some expectations (money wise). Let's assume game times will be altered in the first few years, even if the work is almost there.

    1pm this Monday or the one after, trust me, DiRT Legends will be announced then.

    Steady on @RallyDriven, you are starting to sound a bit like @CodingRacer there. 
    WRC 2019 will be announced really soon. I'm sure it will be ready for the start of next season, following the structure of F1 2018. Consistency is key.

  10. Tried to play Pro Tour, 1/8... 2/8.................1/8.................................2/8.

    Whatever, great multiplatform stuff, now it would be nice getting someone to play the game adding new content and things like that.

  11. They posted on Twitter about Colin Mcrae 2 with "New arcade mode". Do you think that could be the thing they are going to release? A new and improved arcade mode for Dirt 4? That would be awesome.

  12. Codemasters will no longer be Codemasters in 2018 (you can understand it as you want but the Singapore timezone might help you). It's been a long and nice trip, it will be different but hopefully they will bring nice ideas to a racing game.

    Best whishes guys!

    yes - A Road Book will be here Monday, probably around 2pm, maybe just after.

    Wow. That's a lot more specific than "soon." o:)


    Attempting to be a bit more precise has bitten me in the bum, unfortunately! We've hit a slight bump, so it might be tomorrow - but it's still coming, promise!!
    "Two weeks™", "Soon™" and now "Tomorrow™". "No problem™" Christina!
