  1. This thread has this effect on me:

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    Well yes they tested it, the issue is that they used the fastest Virtual Rally driver to test it! (Jon) 😛 (I thought it was kinda funny, it's Monday, give me a break)
  3. I'm on PC and the unexpected events have also stopped for me a few weeks ago. A little sad for immersion but I do have to say for me it's not a very critical thing compared to the others.
  4. Well yes the engine should stall in certain conditions , that one included. 🙂 (but you know with proper clutch work and several attempts you can start in 3rd gear, 4th if you destroy the clutch) I believe it's not even super hard to implement or anything, just another UI option more less.
  5. Hi, no, clutch override allows you to use the clutch to take the car out of "drive" and raise the RPM's. (clutch kick) It won't allow your car to stall and launch normally. It doesnt matter that many people do not have a clutch pedal, it matters that many do and it should be an option for realism.
  6. Hear hear, maybe not strictly a bug but having an option to disable the clutch anti stall (basically auto clutch) that's currently in the game would be an important step towards realism. Over revving on downshifts is definitely IMHO a bug that it doesn't ever do any serious engine damage. (that I have noticed)

    ffb fixed, some comms from devs

    I actually disagree with this. We are missing G forces and so the FFB won't be natural and will always be a bit of an art and not an exact science and will never be natural. Simple as that. ignore facts at your own peril. (the fact is that in real life you drive according to vision and G force feel more than wheel feedback. in rallying wheel feedback is almost entirely useless besides the caster effect and hitting nasty nasty bumps)

    ‘Camera Shake’ - SOLVED!

    Don't forget many real life professional cameras have image stabilization.

    ffb fixed, some comms from devs

    I definitely disagree with it being nice to hear more details on what changes they have. Too much time taken away from development which is WIP. We got enough detail now to wait for the release of the changes.
  10. I agree the distance is too short to stop safely in many stages and reported it here and there. Why that is, I'll leave that for Codies to contemplate. It's not a critical thing but yes it can be slightly annoying in Career mode coupled with amazing AI times.

    Australian road markers

    They don't do much damage in the game though, and the hit isn't that large. This was discussed in the Discord preciously as well and the conclusion was that things are good enough. I haven't ran into one of those myself but if they don't fold down VERY easily (which I assume they do not as they have to contend with wind) they could damage plastic bumpers and trim.

    @afahoy You are right about AC being too harsh off road if you consider / compare to a modern rally car with its own power steering. AC started off as a hardcore tarmac sim and some of those tarmac cars have several times more resistance due to weak power steering or lack there of. Specifically most of the top track race cars have pretty much opposite PS to a rally car on gravel etc. So that's the difference. Even rally drivers will have some subjective feedback on force feedback but at least overall they will be closer to the facts than someone who assumes rallying is just track racing off road. my2c anyway

    read and think,,,

    Geez man, this is not about a translator. What you posted in the first post is just incorrect punctuation, incorrect citation or quoting, and poor grammar (that bit is translation). If you found something on Facebook, why don't you also share the link where you found it and properly quote the post? People are assuming as did I that those are your words.

    read and think,,,

    I think the OP meant: Read and whine... Edit: People have been complaining about lack of updates and "secrecy", now Codies have come back with a more open book, and what; in return you get this really mindless kind of thread? Ugh, come on people, put yourselves into other people's shoes at least a little bit.

    Co driver calls

    Why wait for that? The chances that the codriver will have this totally resolved in all your spots are low. Post the bug fully if you have it. my2c. There are a lot of different priorities for fixes and improvements and waiting is a baad idea.

    Community improvement priority.

    @ChristinaMc this is the original poll, it would be good to know if you are using it also in your fix priority data. because the new poll is missing some entries on purpose and doubled up FFB.

    We ask please hotfix the audio-cutting

    Hi, that's a video of when it already happened. They're looking or a video of the bug starting. But at least you can hear the maximum voltage on the speakers when you start/stop the sound, identical to when you use the menus in the game when the sound cuts out:

    My Team Questions.

    No, but adding a meme definitely does: Reposting as that post was deleted without real reason. If this post is deleted than the above from Ianism should be as well. Edit: not sure who swore in the other posts that were deleted, pretty sure it wasn't me.

    Patch 1.4 - What matters to YOU?

    @ChristinaMc Please don't forget the previous polls, they include some items not listed in this poll https://www.strawpoll.me/17740794/r

    We ask please hotfix the audio-cutting

    I agree, sadly it has happened to me on various stages recently, in R2 class. Both in My Team Career and Time Trials. Appears totally random and sadly I don't have it on tape. So not a good one for a repro 😕
  21. Partly because there is more FFB expected on skinny tires, and they may wish to run different steering racks in the cars too for tarmac. (they can actually decide on the force and FFB IRL too)

    Oops !

    0/10, didn't even load. Edit: Okay nightly slowness seems to be resolved today: 7/10 crash style

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    It's the reverse actually in the WRC, the leader always opens the road on the thursday/friday. Then whoever is slowest from that day opens the road on Saturday. (it's all kinds of ****, but that's another discussion) Also it is divided into classes, support series run after the main WR cars.

    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.
