    FOV in Dirt Rally 2.0

    No it doesn't. You're entering different information then. Please share your eye distance to screen and your screen height.

    FOV in Dirt Rally 2.0

    With all due respect, Mike likely said that because the vFOV /camera isn't changed from DR1 to DR2 and that calculator was correct for DR1. However how you use the value from Dr1 to DR2 has changed as you aren't entering it in a config. So, don't hang on to what CM said, you don't really even need them as part of this conversation once you got your FOV click values as we have, because you can use geometry and physics/optical calculations to check everything. Stop for a minute thinking of what people tell you, and use your own brain as it were to consider whether what you see in the frame of your monitor is what you would really see on the monitor if it was a physical window in your car at that distance etc. Use your arms if you have to to touch the corners of a road in Spain at your bonnet, do the same in your car on a similar width road, is everything ligning up? It is super easy to check as we are talking a factor of 100% error.

    No you don't.

    FOV in Dirt Rally 2.0

    It's not showing correct values for vFOV for DR 2.0. All you have to do is check how wide the road is on your monitor versus in your real car... its so blatantly obvious it's not funny.

    FOV in Dirt Rally 2.0

    No - The calculator is totally right. You are using a double FOV from what it should be with the other calculators. If you can't play, raise it knowing it's not realistic, or upgrade your setup.

    https://andyf.me/fovcalc.html now has DR 2.0 output.

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    Even Jon is quite a bit behind the AI as I found out by chance yesterday, these are times from one stage of New England:

    Read this thread perhaps.

    @CarlesWRC I guess you must suck more to get bumped down, go to each event and retire. Or you could do a full reset of the myTeam thing... which might suck.

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    Just an update on this, because now I can view the Career Leaderboard. R2 Masters: I am regularly placing top 10 or top 5 in Spain and NE stages on the leaderboards, in the wet often #1 or 2, and I am still placing around 10th versus the AI. Edit: To clarify, on the human Career Leader boards the people at the top 10 usually are not the same people, it's a huge inconsistency. Versus the Ai where the top 3 at an even are generally the top 3 in most stages. So while I am about 5 places average higher or more versus the humans, the AI are also much more consistent. So this is a problem . I think this requires strict world record times on all stages of the Masters championship, and those times are not Rally times, those are Time Trial times.

    Dirt Blurry 2.0 - NO MORE!!!!!!

    ^ Typical irresponsible deflection. The 3rd post is not conclusive of anything either...

    Dirt Blurry 2.0 - NO MORE!!!!!!

    What a silly thread, at least be committed enough to specify what platform it is not blurry on anymore...

    FOV in Dirt Rally 2.0

    Well that's exactly what it is, it's just doubling it. So you have a calculator basically on the immersion site, use any other game that has vFOV like Assetto Corsa and you have the right answer that's not doubled. Then you can use the -5 / +3 table someone posted above to know how many clicks up or down from center you need to adjust (hint, almost everyone needs to do some negative clicks, and most people need to go to smallest FOV possible)

    Another example of crazy R2 AI times, this is Masters level. masters AI dry, ~130th on the road (degraded) Humans, dry, ideal degradation So they are beating the Human world record done in ideal conditions by 7 seconds in Australia. And they do this with degradation, and worn tyres.

    Yes you will get dropped eventually if you keep finishing at the bottom or Abandon a championship a few times. I'm kind of hoping CM will fix the AI times, it's a bit scary in the R2's on some events.

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    It's just going to be an algorithm with some inputs like Level, Class, Conditions, ideal time, etc. Obviously the algorithm is a bit mis configured.

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    The AI times in R2 ARE quite messed up, Marynka. I can do a 4:15 with a few tiny errors in the dry, that's 11th world time. but that's not good for Masters Career AI, they do the same time in the wet, with full degradation: Humans Dry no deg AI Wet full deg back of field Video of the Dry stage for reference

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    Oh, I think they did pretty well on that aspect; because often you're in lower levels up against "up and coming talent", and yeah they're fast but next season they usually are already in a higher level and not there to challenge you anymore. This can happen in real life too where a driver is just so much better but he won't stay there long.

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    I am resorting to restarting my wet stages until I can minimize the time loss in R2 FWD career. It's really not a good experience as I am pretty hardcore (tm) and would prefer to do no restarts as I was able to do until I got into elite. Frankly without restarts with these AI times especially in the wet, I'd probably struggle for 2 years to get into Masters. 😄

    Tunning area tunning

    Good suggestions. There was another thread made about setup names and I was considering the same myself too. Plus, (already is a thread for it) it would be good to be allowed to save many more setups per car/venue.

    Well, you should try completing the Career in Elite using R2 FWD class then... 😛 and make sure it rains a lot to top it off. I feel like I am qualifying for the e sports championship or something doing that. lol

    Remove Always Online for the Career!

    Right, IMO this is the kind of reason why (especially big) businesses should pay more attention and NOT ever consider things to exclude customers when they don't really need to. It is a similar deal with retailers or car parts dealers who stop carrying products because a smaller number of people require them, even though when they do it's quite critical and it is fully in the domain of the retailer. You basically develop a reputation this way, and collectively life becomes harder for everyone in society due to this. At the end of the day most of this is driven by greed, even if I am not specifically saying this is the case for Codemasters. my2c

    Dirt Rally 2.0 - Telemetry Tool

    Yeah thanks to @TheCulac for this more versatile dash for live observation, because not having window borders etc is definitely a step forward. I just wanted to make sure people know the options out there and that I didn't miss something myself too. 🙂

    Yep, I wonder if this preserves full screen FPS 🙂

    Dirt Rally 2.0 - Telemetry Tool

    Well not true, actually for live display/dash there is a tool for this already and it is called SimHUB, however it does not allow you to overlay in full screen mode and that's the only difference. You need to either have it on a side monitor or have your game in windowed (possibly borderless if you go that far) mode. You can see some of it here, you can just edit the dash panel to your desire: Anyway, that's certainly an improvement if you can overlay in full screen, but also the real deal for setups is in reviewing data logs after a run, which is something I need to release which fully supports MoTeC exporting. (nearly done, just plugging in some DR 2.0 tracks/vehicles as I go)
