    Analogue Handbrake after update

    It is it's just too sensitive for most people's preference. And you still can't really adjust it to make it much less sensitive. Hopefully Codies will look at that for 1.10 (slider would help a lot yes)

    Saturation setting is not good; you can adjust from 80% saturation (previous) to a theoretical 150% however at above 100% you can't launch your vehicle. So you are limited to adjust up to 100% saturation. At 100% you get lockups on tarmac at about 20% pull range. Can't adjust it to lock at say half pull or 75% pull. There is also no Input Reporting slider for the HB like for clutch/brake/throttle, so you can't see the results easily. Deadzone adjustment is very important though! Verdict: I say improved by 25% and with deadzone (which is very important) but overall NO BUENO 👎

    Track Limits in DiRT World Series

    Very few people like the cuts, the consensus appears to be that people would prefer they didn't exist or that the extreme ones would be penalized. For now though it is what it is and it's important not to A) Call people cheaters if it's not an exploit and B) not to over estimate the benefit of most cuts, as then you're lying at minimum to yourself. For me the worst thing about the cuts is that it requires time/research to find them. In some cases it also adds a chaos over skill component.

    You need to post a new topic in the technical support section of the forum, not in here for sure.

    Then you arent driving the roads properly. Simple as that. The guys that know how to drive at the very top gain 2s on those cuts. Also, beating him in TT doesnt mean you would beat him on the WC stage, most people lost 2s between TT with degradation to the WC. Edit: dont see your 3:52 on the LB

    Track Limits in DiRT World Series

    For Micky's run first cut skipping the tree is about 1s if you hit it right, being generous it's 1.5s. Second cut is approximately 0s (the long one)., being generous it's 0.5s. So it's 2s when being generous. No other cuts. Why don't you actually test your times with and without these 2 cuts a few dozen times and tell me you gained 10s or 15s 😉 There were 3 beneficial cuts that Micky didn't take, which could add another 3s. Tops 5s with extra cuts that Micky and many others didn't use anyway.

    Absolutely not, most cuts are less than 3s. VERY few cuts give you anything close to 10s. Combined some stages might have 20s in cuts but that is very rare. You would not climb from top 100 to top 10 if the cuts were removed, don't fool yourself. Edit: If you must know, the cuts that Micky took in Kopina were worth about 2 seconds in total. (I know this for SURE, I have analyzed it with RDA telemetry and I was competing)

    The rules were made clear on the forum at least, in the linked thread, that cutting is allowed. The hope is that this will be fixed for the next time the eSports round is held. And what difference does that *really* make though. Unless you can at least be first in one or first in a set overall, you don't have all that much to brag about. MAYBE if you come in 2nd or 3rd. But anyway, the point is as I stated above, cutting is 100% permitted at the moment.
  9. Customers can't check it as it's not out yet.
  10. Yes they are, the proof is all over this forum. Every single thing I have said is a fact. You can carry on being un-informed or in denial now. I don't have time to dig through evidence for you, but that's how it is.
  11. @koog2003 It's definitely not illegal. The Oculus is supported, it runs, it has issues, Codemasters is working with customers to provide solutions to improve performance and reduce issues, Codemasters is also making larger plans to possibly support Oculus via a native SDK. You wouldn't win anything in court against them, except a personal refund if you wanted it.

    analog handbrake

    Well can you use the shifter/handbrake now for something like throttle or braking? Does it work in other games as analog ? That's your answer most likely.
  13. You're just wrong here, I can tell just from understanding the situation and setups better. You can learn to set up the various cars, you can have an understanding of car setups overall which you can employ at any time. Also in general the setups are almost identical between stages in the same event. Few small adaptations here and there which you can make if you know how to set up.
  14. The initial post was funny, but some of the following posters are grasping at straws. (being passive aggressive and toxic)

    Don't doubt the BN. 😉
  16. Good news - PJ has confirmed that the analog HB is happening!

  18. Don't forget guys, that reaching the peak stage times in the game is also relying on exploits of the physics simulation. There are some things in the game that are not punishing you enough in one manner and giving you too much reward compared to real life. Hence why it's not really any less of a cheap exploit than some setup change, which everyone else could set up as well. And it's not that the people who do setups are ******* who just use some exploit, it's that some things you need to be able to set up also IRL to allow you to set the balance of the car the way you need. Even if you only have limited setup ability on the car you can do a lot in the right direction. So no, this isn't about protecting rare snowflakes, it's about the fact that the eSport is not organized correctly for the competition, and that fewer of the best will be present in the quarters. It favors people who always run stock especially to get through, but for what purpose when in the final they won't be able to win on stock setup? (most likely). It's very basic logic. The competition is set up for publicity first, and results second. This is my point. I also like the fact that everyone and their cat can get a shot, but not actually at the expense of chaos and chance as well as bad design meaning that one or two better drivers might not advance due to it. my2c, no sense in me repeating the same points I think. CM and the organizer put one thing in front of the other for their reasons, in a hard logical sense it's a mistake for an optimal competition. That's all.
  19. I didn't ignore your points, you ignored mine and also told me that my opinion doesn't even matter. (you never addressed any of my points with anything logical) My main point was this: " There is a clear logical flaw with this, and it's that the best overall drivers may NOT make it past the early stages due to having different rules between initial qualifiers/quarters and the finals. Setup is part of real rally, it's part of the game as well. It is a skill and talent people have spent time developing. It also changes in some cases completely how you drive a car. And a person may be top notch (best in the world) when they have a car set up, but may not be in the 99.9% when their setup is fecked up. And there is no real reason other than this artificial nonsense in the rules to drive a car without setup! Unless you are driving some old mini in the 70's or something that didn't have much you could set. You can't get your way around this argument, and everyone else who advocates for no setup qualifiers either. You can skip over this important fact, and make assumptions that luck will get the best drivers in, but you don't know that with absolute certainty, and it could trip up the very best. " not sure how what you said really did anything to address that. Nothing actually now that I have re-read your post.
  20. Well if your argument is that Codies can set up the champ they way they want, and we have no input.. and also that you missed the entire point of keeping rules constant for qualifiers through finals, then we have nothing to discuss. You can also keep assuming things, you are all super smart in knowing exactly who will adapt to often an upside down setup and whether that makes them the better driver 😉 .
  21. It's not black and white like that. 🙂 The good drivers pick up a lot of setup skills. There is no real engineer in DR2.0 to help you either.
  22. It seems auto is allowed for some stupid reason in the finals, but not enforced. So you can at least drive normally if you get in.
  23.

You can skip over this important fact, and make assumptions that luck will get the best drivers in, but you don't know that with absolute certainty, and it could trip up the very best. Basically, the rules in the final should be applied from day 1 IF some basic minimum equipment that people have permits it. So this is why chase cams should be disallowed, massive cutting should be disallowed (as it's BS honestly), and technically driving with controllers and keyboards should be disallowed, disabling grass should be disallowed, disabling FFB should be disallowed for qualifiers. To re-iterate, because you're giving a chance for people who can't (more likely can't) function in a realistic competition/final to take the spots of people who can. To add to that, you are also opening the door to people who haven't the slightest about setups to get in and take spots in the semis/final. Why? Are they going to catch up in that time? Maybe, but why punish people who have already invested time in learning the craft?
