  1. ^ 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.

    If you have hearing difficulty, then sound is a problem in general. Not Phil Mills.

    This is actually absolutely not true.  People with different hearing difficulties just have MORE issues hearing certain tones and voices and anything that makes it more challenging like a specific accent or lack of volume makes it worse.  Why do people on the internet always assume they know everything?  Look at rallying, how good are all of you at it compared to Ogier or Loeb and how much did you need to learn and practice to get to a reasonable level, equally do you think you are at least as good as an ENT or some medical researcher?  Don't over simplify things you don't fully understand.  The worst thing on gaming forums are fanboys who step in and silence negative feedback or requests they just don't care about.  Don't be one of those sad people.  It's  not like it's 200 people requesting Codemasters waste their time on making 100 new liveries.  Let it be...

  3. Well this is really unfortunate.  What you guys may have failed to notice is DirtTrash is signing with -SemperFi which if legit could be a very good reason to have hearing damage if he was ever deployed with the USMC or prior with the Army.   In any case it's not an insult to Phil if one person out of 1000 or whatever the odds are can't understand his pace notes with default settings.  I have some light tinnitus myself from an unfortunate blast and know at least how it can feel.  Basically it is FIRST harder to understand speech over other noise, rally car environment will qualify as such noise. 


    Just saying, no need to freak out on the guy because he has a serious problem with a feature, who knows the guy may even be hearing impaired or with a disability.  You know not everyone wants to open up with their life story and list of disabilities to provide feedback or have a request.   If you just don't see the need for some feature you don't really need to reply/support it, there is no need to bash someone to the ground, they're not even insulting you.  🚓

    my 20c 🙂                 @DirtTrash, I hope you don't let the comments from other gamers stop you from enjoying the game some day.

  4. Are you joking?  Best rally driver?  Even she doesn't think that, not even close.

    For example she's been put on a genuine F1 sim which is more of her specialty and she learned just at what level the top level drivers are.  Rovenperra for example at 18 years old would SOOOO destroy her in a rally.  🙂   So I am not saying she is bad, just putting things in perspective.

  5. If you have trouble understanding the co-driver try outputting him to a separate channel perhaps (center) like in DR 1.0.  Put him on your headset and put the engine/game sounds on speakers.  That makes it more realistic and much easier to hear pace notes.

    Edit: I do have to agree that your original post is a bit unclear that you are after different voices.  Now THAT could be a DLC once a female voice is in there free.  Just saying, not requesting.

    so they really did that....

    for the love of god allow people to drive a single player career in offline mode. who makes such decisions and thinks they are good? i dont get it. there have to be meetings and multiple people sitting in a room talking about it. and in the end they come to the conclusion that it is the right idea. 


    IKR!   Usually (not always) this is a top down driven meeting, so someone at CEO/CTO level will be making this call.  Just FYI. (I've been in such meetings at another company where 70% of the participants can be baffled but see the short term financial aim, the other 30% are yes men[or women] hired to agree).

  7. Having to be connected to the internet at all times and using the game UI like a web page waiting for the server is really not acceptable at all times.  I understand if there is an ONLINE campaign and OFFLINE campaign mode though or something if absolutely necessary.  Thanks for listening to your users Codies.
