  1. I experience the exact same thing. In my case not on PC, but on Xbox One X; Some kind of graphic 'grid'-like lines in the textures.
  2. Tried to do some racing this afternoon and run into the so called audio cut again! - NW Zealand - long stage. (Xbox One X - Career mode). I'm sorry to say that I had to stop playing DR2.0 (mostly out of frustration ) a while back caused of this problem and the lack of real FFB on my wheel (Fanatec CSW 2.5). When v1.3 released, I tried the game again (with high hopes) to find out I better stop playing - again - and wait for the next patch to arrive... They must get it right sometime (I guess/hope). For now I return to Dirt Rally 1.0 that, besides the lower quality graphics, has got better FFB and still is a very good rally sim. I truly like DR2.0, but to be able to really enjoy the game, a lot of problem(s) need to be solved. To be clear: I really DON"T think the people who actually created this game are to blame for the errors in the game. I guess the 'money-grabbing-people' behind this game-title are; not giving the 'creators' enough time to test the game thoroughly on all platforms before releasing it.
  3. Same here, also while driving the long Australian stage, almost till I reached the finish... (Xbox One X - Career mode). Sorry Codies; can't do a decent race like that; The game should not have been released in this state...

    Xbox one/S too blurry

    Sorry my friend, I really can't tell. The game itself still has a lot of problems (graphics, FFB, sound issues etc. etc.) and should have never been released in this state.

    Xbox one/S too blurry

    This is, indeed, a problem with the Xbox One / Xbox One S. I had an Xbox One when I played Dirt Rally 2.0 for the very first time, and I agree the graphics looked very blurry. I now own an Xbox One X, and yes the blurriness is 'gone'. However, I honestly must say that the overall graphic quality is still far from really beautiful nor impressive for a game made in 2018/2019... I do think Dirt Rally 1.0 had a better graphic appearance.
  6. Xbox One X: I'm sorry to say that, again, the 'sound bug/screen freeze' happend to me 3 times last night - making this -otherwise so beautiful- game unplayable. This made me decide to stop playing Dirt Rally 2.0, and I will wait for it to be fixed correctly. Really disappointed.
  7. Thank you kindly for the video! I watched it, for the full 5:40 minutes, and I can honestly tell you I never have experienced this flickering effect while driving in Dirt 4. I'm aware of the effect of hitting an object (tree or rock) and destroying the headlights of the car and to pursue a race without having any light at all, driving pitch black. But this was new to me. However, I must say that the light flickering effect in your video was not as worse as what I have experienced while driving a track at night in DR2.0; the stroboscopic effect was that strong that driving is not an option. Again, thanks for making me aware of this feature!
  8. Well, that's very strange; I both played Dirt Rally 1.0/Dirt 4 on PC and Xbox One, and never have seen this flickering effect of the headlights in there. I honestly think the 'flickering effect' is a bug, especially when you look at the many comments made by people (including myself), mentioning having experienced multi big 'black square blocks' flickering all over the screen while driving the stages in the daytime. I think these same 'black square blocks' are also present while driving night stages, causing the effect of flickering headlights.
  9. Not to be rude, and I do like your creative approach on the car's electrics, but are you really serious in this matter? If so, why do you think, If Codemasters on the one hand, strives to create such 'real to life' details for this game, then why do they create a simple on/off switch as for operating the handbrake? Sorry, but these kind of things makes no sense to me...
  10. XBOX ONE X BUG: While driving a night stage in Australia, the headlights kept on flickering on/off, making the screen turn completely black for (micro) seconds, like a stroboscopic light does. Driving is impossible in this case, and ruined my career. Overall Complaints: 1) The snowfall in Monte Carlo is looking very cheap and unrealistic. The snowfall in Dirt Rally 1.0 was much better (!) - no idea why you have changed this; You copied everything else from the DR 1.0 Monte Carlo stages, changed some of the textures, and sold it to us as DLC. But you weren't able to copy the snow particle system? 2) Driving on asphalt (Spain/(dry parts in) Monte Carlo) is still very unrealistic; like driving on ice. 3) Handbrake is unrealistic; I'm using the Fanatec handbrake and it handles like an awful on/off switch. It's a bit ridiculous to mention this, but the handbrake behaviour in V-rally 4 is working much more realistic and this game is rated arcade. 4) Wheel owners need to have more control over the overall in-game Force Feedback behaviour. A couple of the in-game FF sliders are greyed out (like it is also the case with some of the sound options?); Why is this? The in-game FF menu in Dirt Rally 1.0 was, by far, much better; you could change everything in there to get the right 'feel of the wheel'. Why changing such a good feature and making it worse for a new game?
  11. XBOX ONE X BUG: Yesterday, I played Dirt Rally 2.0 again, and sadly noticed that the bug, that's freezes the screen and leaving you with only a hard screaming sound, is still there (despite of the latest patch installed). Where did I found the bug? It happend twice; in career mode, on one of the Argentina tracks, driving the Fiat. The first bug appears when driving half way of the track, the second bug happend when I almost finished the race. I had to force stop Dirt Rally 2.0, to go back to the Xbox One desktop and had to restart the game twice. Also: The 'engine sound slider' still starts from 50% and can't be put lower.

  13. XBOX ONE GRAPHIC BUG: Yesterday, when I was driving in New Zealand (Free Race-Peugeot 205-night time/heavy rain showers), some large transparant black squares started flickering (like strobe light) all over my screen. Could this perhaps be a problem caused by alpha mapped rain textures? Very annoying effect, that makes it almost impossible to keep you focussed.
  14. XBOX ONE BUG: I noticed many times, when driving in the evening or at night, that the car's headlights are flickering on/off. This happens with most of the cars on any track in the game. XBOX ONE HANDBRAKE ISSUE: I drive this game with a Fanatec CSW 2.5 setup, including the Fanatec Handbrake. When using the handbrake, I get the strong feeling that the handbrake in Dirt Rally 2.0 is just a simple digital on/off switch unlike in DR1 ? Not exactly what I expect from a rally game that wants to be recognized as a real simulator. I truly hope that this will be corrected in the next patch.
  15. This is also the case for Dirt Rally 2.0 on the Xbox One: The graphics are blurry and washed out - it looks like there is a heavy AA everywhere. When racing, particularly when driving through forrest areas with a lot of trees, it's almost impossible to see where I'm going. It's like Bukharov said in his post: 'it's killing my eyes'. Even the graphics from Dirt Rally 1.0 are still much better in quality than this. I love Dirt Rally 2.0, especially the driving is so much improved in compare with Dirt Rally 1.0, but the graphics are a big let down. Please fix this!
