    The effect of a full tank on car setup

    Some really good information in this thread (and others too). I wish there was a way to bookmark or subscribe to individual threads so that you can easily come back to them in the future as the need arises. It's a feature that is available on other forums so not sure why it's not on here, unless I am missing something of course?

    1.06 out on PC (black Merc)

    Yeah I wish they went back to just the single helmet. This changing them constantly got old real quick!! Much better when drivers kept the same design throughout their careers.

    ERS Question

    That's a fair point but I was more thinking for career and grand prix modes rather than multiplayer where the lobby can control this in the same way as other settings.

    I wasn't aware of this little assist being available for pad users. Thanks for the info.

    Thanks for the tip that looks like a really useful site and definitely one to keep bookmarked👌

    David Greco's Handling, Driving and Setup Q&A

    This is how I see it as well. It's the one area where the UI is inconsistent in comparison to the rest.

    David Greco's Handling, Driving and Setup Q&A

    I think it's still confusing tbh lol On all other areas of the setup screen the right side increases the area you are looking at.. i.e. aero - higher aero is on the right. Ride height - higher is on the right. But with camber If we want to increase it we have to move it to the left. Just a bit counter intuitive. It's good to have this clarification so thanks for that but anyone new having not seen this can easily fund that confusing as so many have over the years 🤪

    David Greco's Handling, Driving and Setup Q&A

    That being the case they surely would have altered this after all these years. This one has always proved to be very confusing. @David Greco CM can you clarify this one please and put to bed a long standing area of confusion. Many thanks. I see this had already been answered. See following post.

    David Greco's Handling, Driving and Setup Q&A

    Really good to have your expertise here, many thanks and thanks @UP100 for setting this up. Much appreciated 😀 So are your saying that the Xbox version handling is different to how it was in the final beta. If so how has it changed and for what reason? Cheers.

    ERS Question

    Thanks for the in depth response. I can definitely see the idea behind it and it's not a deal breaker at all but think it would have been good to have an option to use either the full system or the simplified one.

    Problems with my pedals

    As has been suggested try playing with the saturation and linearity settings and also maybe add some deadzone so that you have a little bit of play before the throttle or brake are activated.

    Modo ERS manual en carrera ya!!!

    Although I get that the real drivers don't get to set this themselves during the race the engineers do change it throughout which in the game we do not get so I wish they had left this feature in our at least made it an option to turn on or off. I'm sure I've heard the engineers telling drivers to switch to different modes during a race though?

    ERS Question

    That's a shame they that they have removed the manual control of ERS this year as like the op I used to enjoy the strategy element that altering this during a race created. Does that not make it much more difficult to build it up now that you cannot turn it down to off or low like last year? So just to clarify.. there is an overtake button assigned which I assume is a simple on / off like for DRS but you can also set buttons to go up and down because the options to move between ERS modes is still there in practice. But why? If it's not available to do this in a race what's the point of it being available in practice? I'm confused lol.

    No Standard Edition?

    Is there no standard edition of the game available this year? Just been looking and can only see the Schumacher and Seventy editions in the stores. In previous years there was also a standard edition for those less able to afford the expensive specials or those that just weren't interested in the extra content.
  15. Hammerpgh62

    No Standard Edition?

    Nope, it was available in the local store at £44.95 There were standard, anniversary and legend editions last year. Anyway, no matter I was just curious why the difference this year. Thanks for the responses 👍

    No Standard Edition?

    I've never paid that much for any game. Not even digital which is always more expensive. I don't buy anything but racing games so maybe I'm out of touch with these things but its about 10 quid more than last year on release. ACC was just released for £34.99. 20 quid is a huge difference.

    No Hard Copies

    And it costs more then the physical copy to boot. Never understood that when digital doesn't have any manufacturing or packaging to add to the price.
  18. Hammerpgh62

    No Standard Edition?

    At 55 quid that's not very standard!! It says it's a special seventies celebration edition so I was expecting there to be a simple vanilla one without the seventies extra's. Not really interested in all that extra eye candy fluff. If it included extra tracks that would be worth the extra but not just for fluff. That's why they usually have the standard version.
  19. I have the version of Dirt Rally 2 that is currently part of the Xbox Gamepass subscription. Can you let me know whether this is a full version of the game or a cut down version. The reason I ask is that I have been trying to take part in a Rally that has been created in the club I belong to. However whenever I try to access it I get a message telling me that I do not have the Entitlements to do so.. please see screenshot attached. I can take part in custom events of my own using the cars that are part of the club event that I cannot access so I am confused why I am having this problem. Many thanks

    Dirt Rally 2 Gamepass - Entitlements

    I was considering buying the game outright after having so much fun with it on Gamepass but there seem to be so many issues with dlc not being available to many that I'm reluctant to shell out the money for something that may still not give me everything out should. I've been in contact with Codemasters and they have responded to say they are working with Microsoft to try to resolve the problem but at the moment have no answer. That last response was about 2 weeks ago!! Doesn't exactly inspire confidence in purchasing it.

    DLC Entitlement FAQ (PS4)

    I've had this same problem on Xbox and contacted Codemasters about it several weeks ago now. They acknowledged my email and replied with a few questions which I've answered and then said it had been escalated. I've not heard anything back from them in a couple of weeks now 👎

    Dirt Rally 2 Gamepass - Entitlements

    So when you did that did it also charge you for them? When I go to the store it lists the cars I need for this event with a price against them even though they are part of what I already have

    Dirt Rally 2 Gamepass - Entitlements

    Many thanks for this. I assumed that was the case but it's still confusing why I can't join a club challenge that had been setup with no dlc included. I'm in touch with customer support so hopefully they will be able to resolve this.
  24. An online buddy I race with bought this pack but can't download it. I remember a similar problem with with other DLC so is is there a solution to to this. I also wanted to get this pack for those two tracks but but am reluctant to now I have heard that this sort of problem is is still around. Absolutely crazy that this is still happening. 
  25. @Loore @justbiglee‌ I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere else but apologies if it has. In our Race Department Xbox League we have noticed that every race we run the gap data seems to get corrupted around 4/5 laps from the end of the race. For example our last race at Spa we ran 3 races, 1 x 3 lap (used as our qualification session due to not qualification in the online game) and 2 x 14 laps. Both of the 14 lap races the gaps were fine until lap 9/10 when suddenly a gap of around 10 seconds on my screen between myself and the leader jumped to over a minute and a half, the following lap it was over 3 minutes and so on and so forth until the end of the race. It’s almost as if the game thinks my car is standing still (I’m slow but not that slow!!). Each driver behind the leader see’s the same. It’s happened each race we have run so far (Indianapolis, Brands Hatch and now Spa). At the same time the driver ahead of you always seems to show up as being very close behind the leader during this spell (less than a second at times) when in fact he is not. Is this a known bug and if not what are the chances of it getting fixed. Pretty annoying as that information is the only reference we have in the game to how we are doing in comparison to other drivers.
