    Patch 1.4 - What matters to YOU?

    I didn't choose you Jesse, you brought yourself to my attention, big difference. I never said you had insulted Codies, I said new forum members had, again big difference. My problem with you is that nearly every thread I am called to involves you. Yes, people report thread content to me and I have to come and check it out, and you are there somewhere, fighting a fight that would have died out if you stayed out of it, or left out that last comment that you felt you just had to add to make yourself feel like you just won the internet for the day. I'm not interested in which side of any disagreement you are involved in, I'm just as disinterested in the other point of view. I'm interested in the tone of the posts and their effect on the forum. As you point out, I'm a moderater, my job is to moderate the forum. https://careertrend.com/how-5385368-become-chat-room-moderator.html "Typically a job as a chat room moderator entails making sure that newcomers feel welcome and are enjoying their stay in the chat room. You want to make sure that they return. Your job could mean answering questions, greeting newcomers or even making sure that vulgar language is not used on the chat board. Your biggest job will probably be to make sure all those chatting are tolerant of others and show respect to each other." Here I am, telling the person I'm being called to moderate most often, moderate your responses. If you don't I will be forced to do it for you, and believe it or not, I don't want to have to do that.

    Patch 1.4 - What matters to YOU?

    A rewording of I haven't got a problem with genuine, well reasoned and justifiable complaints from paying customers. That's how the game improves. I wasn't talking about comments about the game, I was talking about insults aimed at staff, and the general attitude of new members. That FFB comment wan't aimed at you. TBH, I don't know what your gripe is, I don't pay close enough attention to what you're complaining about to know. I just notice the aggression in your posts and the fact that you argue with a lot of people. The first inference towards you wasn't done out of any indecency, it was done in the hopes that you would realise that I was talking about you and think about how you word your posts without me having to publicly warn you about your post content. If you would like an official warning for aggressive posting, feel free to let me know. So you understand that reworking the FFB takes at least 6 weeks and a complete overhaul of the system, but you don't understand that the same people posting over and over about the FFB doesn't speed up the process? Ok. The FFB wasn't worked on straight after release, while working on other bugs. Most bugs had been sorted out by then, and we still got cars that turn in the air. Maybe, just maybe, Codies are trying to release of version that doesn't add new bugs to the system this time. It wasn't to start an arguement, it more in resignation, as in.... "What are you arguing about today Jesse? sigh... here we go again..."

    Patch 1.4 - What matters to YOU?

    Codies aren't always the most vocal of devs, their presence on the forum has always depended on the forums mood. If the forum is hostile, they don't post much, who can blame them? I don't. There's been some awful stuff posted on here since DR2.0 came out. It happens with every new game, there's always a wave of angry posts from angry players, angry that their favourite thing was removed. But this one has been the worst yet. We've got people claiming to have been fans of the game since forever complaining non stop about the FFB not being ready, but if they'd been been here during the Early Access period of DiRT Rally they'd know it took months to release the V2 FFB and all Codies said about it at the time was "We are aware and are looking into it".

    patch 1.06 and still FBB not fixed on dirt 2

    They are telling you the truth @CalvinCar You've misread the comment by ChristinaMc. The line about "We are happy with the FFB" is set up as a statement from a member, not Codemasters. Her reply to the statement is the paragraph underneath it, where she says that they are working on the FFB.

    Like you say, he's not the only one. There's a guy with the opposing view who responds aggressively to anyone and anything he disagrees with, like his own personal honour is at stake. They both need to take it down a notch and agree to disagree when they disagree.

    Everything frustrating with Dirt Rally 2

    I don't mind agreeing to disagree, from where you stand it doesn't make much sense but the design parameters for DiRT Rally and DiRT Rally 2.0 were laid out a long time ago (both games come from the same discussions). This included game types and stages. They were picked by forum members. DLC wasn't wanted by the people who helped choose what we wanted for DiRT Rally, so it didn't have it (like I said, we didn't want the type of DLC Codies had offered before, we were only interested in real content DLC's). When DiRT Rally was finally released new players started asking for DLC, and the easiest way to deliver that was to remake the old stages from DiRT Rally and improve things about the stages that had been brought up when the original game was released. The reason we asked them to include the previous stages as DLC was to further fund the development of the series. Incidentally, it also makes sense from a game design standpoint as it combines everything we originally asked for into the one game. The DiRT Rally games are intended to be a continuous work in progress, based on feedback from the players and while the f1 games are already sim based, it was a new thing for the DiRT series. It took a long time to convince the moneymen that a rally sim could be profitable. Others have noticed that it can be a money maker if done right (looking at you, WRC) and turned their attention to producing more realistic rally games (part of the original plan, ssshhh don't tell anybody). Which is a win win for everyone who wants more realism in their rally games. As for where my loyalty stands, there is no delete where applicable. I was one of the people who originally asked them to make DiRT Rally, and Codies have delivered on a 10 year promise. Which deserves loyalty, both to the game and the team who make it. But anyway, thanks for polite disagreement, it's refreshing after the past couple of months of wading through the same post over and over again and being branded a fanboy for trying to explain stuff to people.

    Now I understand. There have been a few people who have commented on the wheel base of certain cars, including @mesa

    Having spoken to nasoduko in pm I think I figured it out. It should look like this... However... Which all makes sense if you go and read the FB page. Correct me if I'm wrong @nasoduko

    Everything frustrating with Dirt Rally 2

    If Codies had the WRC licence I would be more than slightly annoyed. But they don't, so it means nothing as they can't model the game too closely on the WRC because, somebody else holds the licence. Really? https://www.wrc.com/en/jwrc/calendar/calendar/page/901--98--.html Junior WRC has 5 countries, DR2 has 6. Unless of course you're saying that the JWRC isn't a real rally championship? Forum members asked for the old stages as DLC as soon as they found out there was going to be a DiRT Rally 2.0. In fact when Codies asked what we wanted in DiRT Rally 2 a lot of people specifically requested the DR1 stages as DLC. Codies didn't have to deliver, especially considering our opinions in the past around here on DLC's i.e No fluff like the stuff in DiRT2 - horn packs and dash ornaments, we wanted real content - cars and stages. BTW, Rallycross was also requested by forum members from the start of DiRT Rally discussions, because something was needed to bring in the casual user, because believe it or not, not everyone wants to spend day after day learning the unforgiving stages in a rally, the wierdos

    @nasoduko stop replying in Greek, it serves no purpose. We're all definitely thinking "What's nasoduko's point?". You're complaining about something, either we don't understand your complaint, or you don't understand the answers. If we don't understand your complaint it's because it's not written in clear, understandable English. If you don't understand the answers it's because you don't understand clear, understandable English as well as you think you do. Either way, the problem is with your understanding of the written English language, not ours. This is your original comment in the thread. And then you quote Christina saying this Which is the opposite of what you say in your original comment. Either Codemasters don't care about the game and aren't working on ffb, bugs and dlc, or they do care and are doing something about ffb bugs and dlc. Which is it?

    Riggs man, don't set him off. I can feel his eye twitching from here.
  23. SkiddyMcCrash

    Dear Codemasters

    I'm guessing that you mean the group of old members that asked Codies to make DiRT Rally in the first place? We also took part in the discussions about the physics and realism of cars in DiRT Rally 1, and steering wheels vs pads on the forums for every game since DiRT 1. Not surprising in a game that uses both wheels and pads as controllers.
