  1. That's the cockpit cam (it allows moving up/down/back/forth).  They are already restricting the FOV from being wider, and you are asking to move the camera.  It would clip all over the place in different vehicles. 


    (actually with TrackIR/VR there already is enough clipping as is when you turn your head to extremes I was checking this in cockpit view, that's where you might clip at extremes with seat fully forward.  but not visible in normal driving)

    It's not just FoV you have to consider but also potential clipping issues with the camera. You're very close to the dash and the front pillar on many cars. Increasing FoV can expose that, which is one of the reasons it isn't currently allowed. 


    @cmMikeRobson Would you guys consider enabling a certain lower range of FOV only?  From current FOV to lower FOV only.  You don't need to make any UI changes to achieve this, just min() it to the current dash FOV so it never clips. 🙂       Not pressuring, but it would be cool to at least be able to lower the FOV and that should not introduce clipping in a normal world.

    I´m not sure if it is a analog-handbrake because there is no slider to see it. Hope someone could tell us about that!

    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)

  4. 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 👎

  5. 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.

    Hi. I wonder if somebody could help me. I have an issue with Dirt Rally 2.0. I did a rallycross world series time 3.15.4, but there was a connection problem with racenet(33a14c9d....) which mean I can not see my time on the Leaderboard. I did a rally run after without time but this Time I can see my result on rally Leaderboard. What is the problem? Thank you for your help.

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

    I did test It and Do what he did in the cuts I beat him time in trail so with out those cuts I got 4.02 with the cuts 3.52.

    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

    The one acorss the tree was 5sec the one before thar was 2sec and the one at the end was 3secs There for its almost 10secs with out big cuts. That stage all in was 15secs with cuts. So if half of the 100 on the LBS do that then then your dropping 50%.

    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.

    The Point is 70% have Cuts about 30 to 40 secs on I have only done 2 stages and if there never take the cuts I would be top 5 maybe after stage 3 that, xD

    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)

  10. 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.


    Am 100% Sure if People did not Cut I would be sitting in the top 50s, Why can there not follow there ghost in e-sports and remove them from the stage as DNF.

    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.

    Codemasters is NOT doing anything of what you have listed. Nothing at all. It does not answer questions, it does not give an ETA, it does not give news or updates of any kind. 

    What are you blathering about ? All things you said are not officially confirmed and possibly not coming. Ever. 

    Now if u have a proper source of information that is not coming from Pjwhatever, which does nothing but ignoring people and giving false hopes, please share it.

    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.

    Thanks, yes I am using my shifter as a digital handbrake in sequential mode.  However,  on steam I have seen PC guys use their t8ha in h-pattern turned sideways as an analog handbrake.   I was wondering if the analog option will be available for PS4 users with the T8ha shifter.

    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.

    How can you tell?! the finals stages aren’t yet announced! If the organizer didn’t give them enough time to fit their car setup to destroy who can’t setting, then no you can’t tell! Otherwise if they did, then yes I would agree.

    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.

    @bn880 don't get their hopes up too quick, we know it's coming and should be in 1.9 but @PJTierney hasn't wanted to absolutely confirm it yet since his patchnotes are still "pending" until final QA sign off.


    But @deadredeyes BN is right - it has been confirmed to be an enhancement, it just comes down to whether or not it will have signoff for 1.9 or get delayed for 1.10

    Don't doubt the BN. 😉

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

    With all the respect but I really don't understand what your problem is. At some point you just have to accept that Codies set the championship up they want. It looks like the championship you have in mind is an exclusive hardcore WC. Why shouldn't they let everyone take part and give it a try? No game pads, no keyboards, no exterior cams. Really? You can't be serious.

    I think it's more interesting to see how the best drivers fare when they're a bit out of their comfort zone and I think the best will adapt and they'll get through to the finals. 

    What about the daily-esque 'only one shot' rule? That'll mix things up more than having to drive with stock setups. Tuning is a skill that requires lots of knowledge, that's true, but how do you make sure everyone uses his own setup? Teams often have at least one setup guy who makes the setups for his teammates so I think that is not a valid argument. 

    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 😉 .
