    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. 🙂

    Dirt Rally 2.0 - Telemetry Tool

    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)

    Remove Always Online for the Career!

    I saw that they are working on the stability of it through a few tweets or posts. Nothing on making it sensible and offline though.
  9. By the way, this really is more of a bug IMO, as anyone who has their handbrake put out even 1% on during a stage wil lose about 20-30s a stage, AND will not be able to launch at all. Happened to me, wasted half an hour solving it.
  10. Here is a detailed test I did for the HB using Fanatec, as you can see, it locks way too quick. (the white numbers are FL, FR, RL, RR wheel speeds)

    Share your Custom Liveries & Tools here.

    Any way to swap a default livery to another one in DR 2.0? I started a championship with a silly sun strip down half my windshield and wanted to fix it. 😄

    Remove Always Online for the Career!

    Please let paying customers have an offline career Codies. (and then you can let them enable hardcore damage!) Most people who love the game and can afford it will buy it anyway.... people who wish to pirate will not buy the game to get a career. In general.
  13. Yes, and so apparently there is a very tiny area of movement that gives a bit of analog action:
  14. If this isn't a bug, it must have been a manager somewhere saying: "what features can we remove?" And guess what, almost no features can be removed without upsetting existing customers! But sometimes people in management roles don't get that. 😄 😄 (yes I'm slightly outspoken)
  15. Could be a bug yes. I hope it's just a bug. I'm not sure if they got Jon an analog handbrake to test with 🙂 I often saw him testing on a very unstable setup with a wheel attached to a desk. Perhaps he didn't get a chance to notice?
  16. Please see this vid for some further explanation.
  17. Yes, and I didn't bash your suggestion or you. And I said it may be a good idea to make that an option to users. You are becoming rude to people who have not done anything to you. Your suggestion also asks for a CHANGE of a system that others like, this is why you are getting opinions. People are worried that things will change for the worse in their opinion. If you asked for an OPTION then it would be a slightly different discussion.
  18. You are dangerously rude my friend. If you really don't want people's opinions then posting on a community forum may not be a great idea.
  19. I agree with AustinB on this one for the most part. In reality tuning a car (for some single non expert) is a huge PITA. You need to keep good data, and do a lot of research. Testing time is limited as it's expensive, it's basically limited in the professional series as well to limit the cost of the sport. Shakedowns are a bit short I will give you that, but you get 10 attempts. The fact that you pay to repair your car after shakedown disasters is marvelous and immersive (to me and I am sure many). If it's a career/campaign/championship, honestly, you need to treat your car like an egg as you're the team owner too and are paying the bills. if you don't want to deal with the challenges of running a rallying career you basically can freeplay etc. (not sure if a custom career can resolve this, I suppose giving players an option to configure this aspect would be good for custom careers/championships) That's my personal view on this, I am not bashing anyone over theirs and yes I know it can be frustrating.
  20. I would only support 1 restart per stage as minimum (not 0). Because you should be able to do a virtual recce run of every stage before you go full speed on it. (and all this should be an option anyway)

    Oh sure, blame the tester. 😛 I prefer to blame the upper management fur such large debacles. 😄

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Hehe, It seems like this is probably the best system, as long as there is a process people understand and can follow. (at least until AI is crazy good to judge such things)

    Racenet: "I'm sorry to inform you that you drove at ludicrous speed and your time has been rejected by the system."

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    ^ What I find really astonishing is that CM has some decent rally drivers testing their stages and cars. So why not put in a hard limit on stage times that are obviously out of physical possibilities and send anything under that up for a rare human review? Like you know, nobody can do a certain stage 1 or 2 minutes faster than a really good run by an experienced professional. At least this would cut out half the BS times.
