  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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...
  5. 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?
  6. 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.

  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. The engine audio volume can't go below 50% is intended? Well, normally, 50% engine volume would not be such a big problem, but in my case the 50% sound is just as loud as 100%; there is NO difference in sound volume at all when moving the engine sound slider from left to right and visa versa... I really do think there a bug in this particular sound option.
  12. Yes, and Tire slip and engine...
  13. Same here: I'm also on Xbox One, driving this game with a Fanatec CSW 2.5 setup and some of the Vibration and Force Feedback menu options are greyed out. Please fix this a.s.a.p. Thank you!
  14. I have experienced the same bug, playing Dirt Rally 2.0 on Xbox One, both in career and free drive mode. My screen went dark while driving in Australia, New Zealand and Spain. Twice I had to stop the game myself to get rid of the dark screen and in one case the game returned to the in-game main menu. Patch was correctly downloaded and installed before starting/driving the game. ANOTHER BUG: I have found in Dirt Rally 2.0, regarding the Xbox One: In the Audio menu, the sound-slider of the engine doesn't work correctly; the slider starts from 50% instead from 0%, (zero % doest exist!) and even on 50% - the engine sound is giving a full 100%; so it is not possible to lower down the engine sound at all; driving with headphone on is damaging my ears now, especially driving in cockpit mode. All other sound sliders work correctly from 0% to 100%. Please fix this a.s.a.p. Thank you!
