    It's not just Martini or WRC, the issue could be with any of the sponsors on the car as Codies have to get permission from every one.

    That's not how the Gossip Thread works. Codies post a pic with no description, we drive ourselves crazy trying to work out what it is. Bingo

    The Codemasters Way

    i don't think you know what Constructive Criticism means. https://www.definitions.net/definition/CONSTRUCTIVE+CRITICISM "Constructive criticism Constructive criticism is the process of offering valid and well-reasoned opinions about the work of others, usually involving both positive and negative comments, in a friendly manner rather than an oppositional one. In collaborative work, this kind of criticism is often a valuable tool in raising and maintaining performance standards. Because of the overuse of negative, nagging criticism, some people become defensive even when receiving constructive criticism given in a spirit of good will. Constructive criticism is more likely to be accepted if the criticism is focused on the recipient's work or behavior. That is, personality issues must be avoided as much as is possible. Critical thinking can help identify relevant issues to focus on. Especially sensitive individuals may adopt a passive, defeated attitude if they view a situation as personal, pervasive, or permanent. Others may adopt an aggressive response. In an online forum lacking face-to-face contact, constructive criticism can be easily misinterpreted and online exchanges often spiral out of control, becoming flamewars. Effective interpersonal communication skills can be helpful to assess the recipient's frame of mind. During initial exchanges or when encountering defensive individuals, effective criticism calls for softer language and inclusion of positive comments. When the recipient strongly identifies with contentious areas, non-offensive criticism becomes challenging." https://corporatefinanceinstitute.com/resources/careers/soft-skills/constructive-feedback/ "Making Feedback Constructive It is important to be able to differentiate between constructive feedback and destructive feedback. Destructive feedback points at faults and is a direct attack on the individual. In destructive feedback, no practical advice or supportive feedback is given. Examples of destructive feedback include: “You’re wrong.” “That is not how you do things around here.” “You have no idea what you are doing.” So, as you can see, your post is not constructive criticism. As for your prediction of being attacked, that has more to do with the manner of your post, not the content of it. https://www.dummies.com/business/human-resources/employee-relations/giving-constructive-feedback/ "Manner Manner is how you say the constructive feedback. As you may know, how you say something often carries more weight than what you have to say — manner is an important element when giving feedback." If you want people yto take you seriously I would read the quotes I posted very carefully, take the advice onboard and come back with your real account and actually use constructive feedback/criticism instead of posting while angry and then insulting anyone who disagrees with you (why am I getting a strong sense of Deja Vu?)

    Firstly, sorry for my first reply, it wasn't meant the way it was taken, my apologies. Secondly, while a 5 left and 5 right will have the same angle of turn your assumption about a 5 left being the same as a 5 right on a reversed corner is incorrect. The corner may be reversed but the entry point for the corner in one direction isn't necessarily the exit point for the other direction, meaning a different angle on the steering wheel.

    Then your idea of a 5 left is wrong, the pacenotes are chosen based on a pre defined system known as the 1-6 system which is used by many pro rally drivers. http://blog.codemasters.com/dirt/04/co-driver-calls-explained/

    Procedural Stage Generation

    The reason DiRT4 had a limited number of different pieces for stages was due to the limitations of consoles.

    Is FFB ever going to get further refinement/improvements

    Creating multiple accounts in order to back up your own arguement is not allowed on this forum.

    No. Toyota won't give Codies a licence for any of it's cars.

    The DiRT Roadbook

    That is the reason. And we all agree with you, there are plenty of forum members who don't own VR that want it in the game and Codies have said they are looking into it. Mission accomplished. Like you said, Steam has less than a quarter of headsets, yet Codies have said they working on an Occulus version. If you can convince the other 4.2 million PSVR owners to tell Sony that you want VR for DR 2.0 I'm pretty sure you'd get it.

The Evo 6 used every driving assist you could think of, so did every other group A and WRC rally car until 2011. https://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/feature/2115718/ford-technical-director-explains-low-tech-approach-wrc-cars "Strictly speaking there is not much tech in our 2011 Ford Fiesta compared to the 2004 car. In that season the car had ABS, clutch control, paddle shift, traction control, active differentials, ride height control with GPS, electronic dampers and active suspension. Having all that tech was fabulous but the cost was high and it was making it too easy for drivers," he said.

    DiRT Rally 2.0, Version 1.5: Bug Reporting Thread

    Have you tried unnassigning the first core on your pc? Task Manager - Details - right click on DiRT Rally 2 exe - Set Affinity - Uncheck either Core 0 or Core 1 (Leave all other cores checked) It stopped my framerate drops (GTX 1060)
