    Upcoming dash cam?

    It is interesting @danielofifi to me as well. But where is the truth? It's hard to judge this but for sure one side is more right than the other. What I will say though that at least when Jon A. was asked about the realism at the end of the eSports WRC8 championship, you could see he didn't really feel it was that realistic to his R5 and older WRC car experience, as he had to hold his tongue and then say in the end it's fairly realistic. So unless you can have data logs to compare to on same stages, you kind of have to rely on people who have the real life experience. And then, you have to appreciate whether you are getting an honest opinion as well...

    I have no doubt the reviews are from independent agents, just that people are influenced very very easily by seeing real WRC drivers try the game etc.

    Yeah, not how it's supposed to work. It's one of those absolutely unacceptable things to me.

    And when you lock the cabin FOV to an artificial value no matter what the external FOV is.
  5. For anyone else reading: This is because a new XML is created for VR in this folder Documents/My Games/Dirt Rally 2.0/hardwaresettings/hardware_settings_config_vr.xml (same as the other config) Which requires setting up the UDP output same as the regular XML.
  6. 16.08.2019: Good news is good news. Version 1.3 of RDA has been published. New: Support added for DR 2.0 Wales Event Support added for all DR 2.0 v1.7 RX Venues Support added for all DR 2.0 v1.7 RX Vehicles (note “VW Polo R Supercar” is detected as the Audi Supercar) Support added for DR 2.0 Ford Focus RS Rally 2001 Fixed fastest lap timing display when swapping RX vehicles on same RX Event Planned: Support for Windows 7 and 8 is still planned. Special Thanks: Special thanks to Malkael for collecting the data required to make this update happen. Special thanks to Mike Dee and Cortextual for their previous contributions. 02.07.2019: Even More good news Everyone Version 1.2 of RDA has been published. New: Support added for DR 2.0 Sweden Rally Event (all Stage Rally Events from 1.51 now supported) Support added for Lancia 037 Evo 2, Porsche 911 SC RS Group B RWD Stage Rally cars (all Stage Rally Cars from 1.51 Supported) PDF now features a change-log at bottom Planned: Support for RX is still planned but not scheduled, donations would speed it up. Check Discord if you wish to help with collecting data for RX RDA support. Support for Windows 7 and 8 is still planned as well, but also not scheduled. https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/racetrack-data-acquisition-rda.26829/update?update=48907 27.05.2019: Good news Everyone Version 1.1 of RDA has been published. New: Support added for all DR 2.0 v1.41 Rally cars including 2000cc. Support added for Monaco and Germany Rally Events. RDA now renders on top of game windows so you can use Live Performance over windowed/borderless DiRT Rally (2.0). Planned: Support for RX is still planned, but donations would speed it up. Check Discord if you wish to help with collecting data for RX RDA support. Support for Windows 7 and 8 is still planned as well. Download Version 1.1 https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/racetrack-data-acquisition-rda.26829/ Hi all, my data logging tool that I should have released 2 months ago , has finally hit the shelves: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/racetrack-data-acquisition-rda.26829/ RDA Represents several weeks of full time software development which is released to you for free but with ability to donate if you find it useful and wish to support further enhancements. What is RDA? RDA is an application that can log telemetry from DiRT Rally (all stages/courses/vehicles) and DiRT Rally 2.0 (base release Cars/Stages and may work for DLC stages) to CSV, BIN, or MoTeC LD files. RDA also allows you to compare instantaneous and live Delta T and Delta V if you have already completed a stage/lap in the same vehicle. Your best stage/lap is saved on completion. Currently the live deltas are rendered only on a secondary monitor or beside the game windowed. Sample Videos ALL THE INFORMATION BELOW AND MORE IS AVAILABLE INSIDE THE PACKAGED PDF WHICH INCLUDES AN EULA Key Performance and Features RDA is very light weight; written in C++17 (importantly not Java or scripts) and does not utilize any extensive libraries such as boost, .NET, QT/wx and other UI libs to keep the data logging and loading performance impact completely negligible. You should not notice even a 0.1FPS drop when logging. In addition to using minimalist C++17, the application logs LD data to a temporary BIN file format instead of text/XML for ultimate performance and data safety in case of a system crash. (Recovering such data from BIN to LD currently can only be performed by the author “bn880” due to possible licensing issues.) Data and Frequency Precision RDA uses a comprehensive algorithm to save LD logs in maximum precision for all data channels without significant processing overhead. This is unlike any previous LD file data logger for other simulations. The frequency of the channels is also precisely calculated and saved based on an extrapolation algorithm and full passes of the collected data points. It is however crucial that you log at less than the full sim render FPS (about 80% or less of the FPS) or that your render FPS remains constant with Vsync if you want to have precise timing in logs. See PDF for more features... Quick Start / Installation Extract zip Extract the ZIP package into a folder where you have full privileges (read/write/full control), usually this simply means NOT in ProgramFiles (x86). Setup DiRT Rally UDP Set up DiRT Rally UDP output to your desired unique RDA port as per the How to set up DiRT Rally and DiRT Rally 2.0 UDP ports section. (inside PDF in package) Run RDA Run ./RDA/RaceTrack Data Acquisition.exe alongside your game to capture data logs and to view live Deltas once you complete a lap/stage once. (you can make yourself a shortcut to the exe for future use) Live Delta viewing is shown on the RDA main panel, and requires a secondary monitor or running the game in windowed mode with RDA visible on the same monitor. See Delta T and Delta V display. *** NOTE *** If you try to use RDA to log cars OR stages/tracks that are not supported no files will be generated, there will be no deltas shown, and you will need to restart RDA to resume logging. When data logging is working and live recording a stage/lap the Record button turns red. See Figure 6 RECORD and STOP (+SAVE) Button states. (inside PDF) You can find your logs with the File>Open Log Folder file menu entry. Install MoTeC i2 Pro v1.0.21.30 (not included in this package, you need to get it yourself) In MoTeC i2 Pro go to "File">"Project">"Open Project..." and open the supplied project: <RDA Install dir>\MoTeC Projects\DiRT Rally\Project.mtcprj Open Log File in MoTeC Pro You can now open your recorded LD log file in MoTeC. As of version 1.0 detailed GPS track maps (inner/drive/outer lines) are provided for Fourketa Kourva and Waldabstieg from DR. However you can generate these GPS maps in about 15-30 minutes with the correct procedure, and any stage you have driven will always be visible as a drive line with heading anyway. See Track / stage map generation procedure. Final Notes/Discord Enjoy, and remember to join Discord https://discord.gg/GKhwAcN if you have questions/comments/suggestions, and that you can Paypal bn880@hotmail.com if you wish to support further feature enhancements. (shameless plug) NOTICE: RDA will not work in Windows 7 or 8.1 until further notice. This is due to Microsoft improperly describing their Universal Runtime to developers.

    Window whipers is too big

    They seem normal sized to me, pictures comparing in game to real cars would be useful here.
  8. It is slightly more analog with the saturation setting at 100%, but Codies are still working on it, hopefully for 1.10 we will see it improved.
  9. It seems that the analog HB feature from DR1 was removed for DR2.0 for some reason, it is now binary/digital on/off. Maybe Jon doesn't use his handbrake this way but especially on FWD rally cars you would use the HB in an analog manner to vary the rear under rotation to induce oversteer or just a bit of turn in. This is especially true on very low traction surfaces like snow. Please bring it back.

    Real Rally times an Dirt Rally 2 times

    AFAIK from the few comparisons I have seen DR2.0 is a little faster, it has more grip, better acceleration etc. But, I don't personally have any data to present on it. TBH I haven't spent time checking this as it's more fun to drive.
  11. But there are water physics at least in the water splashes. Your car gets dragged around, slowed down, you lose steering etc.

    Who do you call that, whatever it means? The people who invented cars and computers? (this is the last thing I am saying to you)

    2. There is a close relationship between the developer and gamers. They post here reasonably often, they review important issues and PJ passes on most relevant things to the team(s). And it's getting better not worse. (have you not seen the last patch, it was addressing most things that the community told them about here?) 3. The tarmac issue actually something they looked at even though it was subjective, and they identified factual things that could be improved and are not correct. The way to solve the subjective opinionated problem pieces is to fall back on science/data/SME's wherever possible. And in case of handling it can for the most part be done that way. So that's fine, it's a matter of resource investment to get it changed. 4. FOV changes aren't really getting eclipsed. Co-driver calls have been addressed where the feedback has made obvious sense. To revise ALL notes for ALL stages as some people suggest is another huge expenditure which is why it isn't happening. This is something you can know without working inside CM. EDIT 5. The only real thing you are actually complaining about is that the number of resources allocated to improving the game has been lower than you would like. If there were 3x as many "man" hours assigned to improvements/fixes, we'd just see a lot more stuff fixed. But anyway, the way the Steam Oculus thing was resolved says they aren't exactly a skeleton crew. Cheers.

    Yeah, check RaceDepartment for it 🙂

    You can't be serious about #2. Doing something in a production environment is not the same as you changing configs in a camera tool with practically no QA. You have no idea just how badly your adjustments may have been chopped up by the QA department. But anyway, yeah it sucks that some stuff is locked down, I definitely agree on that point. Does it mean the game is bad or worthless, certainly not! On your last comment: if you don't want to pay for it, don't play it. If you play it, you should pay it.

    Upcoming dash cam?

    Some do but definitely not all actors who defend the game. It's a minority of people, for the most part people who participate in testing the game get it for free. AFAIK No, the signs are nonsense, and your request is logical. The illogical thing is not understanding that you can't move a dashcam much while allowing head rotation as then you will get clipping which isn't accepted by QA standards. They would have to go over each car with a fine comb and decide on the dashcam limits just like they did with (I assume) the head cam. It's so much work for them that they most likely won't do it for DR2 for free. But your request and the others are still here, and on other threads, so developers can see them. Always their decision. Oh yeah, well CM hears your comments anyway, they just don't if you start to get overly offensive to people. Generally if you get rude (or anyone does) the content of the message is ignored by most employees, other than whatever rudeness comes across. 🙂

    Upcoming dash cam?

    I haven't read all your posts but you sound like you've been abused pretty badly by people who like the game, and I mean VERY badly. Have you been oppressed that much from sharing your opinion on the faults in the game? If you come across as sounding like a *****, like a few posts that I read in this thread, then I think you're getting exactly what you deserve from "company lovers" as you put it. Most of the people you are talking to don't get the game for free, they do like the game more than the faults and respect the company that made it yes. Of course there are problematic sympathizers for all games, I will give you that, where they try to silence constructive feedback and use their social media status to achieve that. I just haven't been seeing a lot of that here. For example I think you and watzcoc keep requesting that the dash cam can be adjusted position wise. I have told you both why this isn't (most likely) going to happen from a logical perspective, not a CM lover perspective, and not because you requested something versus someone else. But you don't listen to logic. That's the problem.

    Fantastic game - some feedback and requests

    So I used to say the same thing at least for R2's, but I didn't notice how much the rear tyres didn't follow the front even in situations where they definitely should have. You really need to look at a replay to realize in some cars that the rear is drifting around unrealistically. Still, in the car looking out it feels nifty enough for me in R2. (I would prefer it to be fixed/improved of course)

    Reducing the FOV will magnify things in front of the camera.

    Hate to tell you this, but you're reinventing the wheel a bit here, RaceTrack Data Acquisition allows you to do this and hundreds more things by utilizing MoTeC https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/racetrack-data-acquisition-rda.26829/
  22. The dashcam isn't about to become adjustable. Just accept that, reasons have been given many times in other posts. But the main one is it's going to clip into the car parts especially as VR and head tracking is allowed in the DC.
  23. bn880

    Upcoming dash cam?

    That's the cockpit cam (it allows moving up/down/back/forth). They are already restricting the FOV from being wider, and you are asking to move the camera. It would clip all over the place in different vehicles. (actually with TrackIR/VR there already is enough clipping as is when you turn your head to extremes I was checking this in cockpit view, that's where you might clip at extremes with seat fully forward. but not visible in normal driving)

    Upcoming dash cam?

    @cmMikeRobson Would you guys consider enabling a certain lower range of FOV only? From current FOV to lower FOV only. You don't need to make any UI changes to achieve this, just min() it to the current dash FOV so it never clips. 🙂 Not pressuring, but it would be cool to at least be able to lower the FOV and that should not introduce clipping in a normal world.
