    DiRT Rally feedback list

    I've seen plenty of posts asking for the game to be as realistic as possible / brutally unforgiving like RBR & just as many posts saying the game is too hard & needs to be easier for beginners / casual gamers. There's no reason why the game couldn't cater for both. When you load the game for the 1st time you required to create a profile, this could include a choice of game modes similar to Xpand Rally, but unlike Xpand Rally that has only 2 options Arcade & Simulation Dirt Rally could have 5, the same skill setting as used in DiRT 1 ProPro AmAmateurClubmanRookie But where DiRT 1 failed was you could skip through the game at Rookie level gaining access to all tracks in all skill levels. My idea is you choose your skill levels at the beginning setting up your profile, you can create a profile for each skill level but your progress & unlocked stages stay in that profile only & all online leader boards are kept separate for each. Various measures could be taken to make the lower skill levels easier, extra barriers protecting from head on collisions with trees or rocks or certain trees / rocks removed & most importantly (like DiRT 1) times that are achievable with a little effort. With these 5 levels of difficulty theirs no limit to how challenging Pro league can be, well kept realistic !,  everyone's happy. Had a re-think, 10 days ago I wrote  'you can create a profile for each skill level but your progress & unlocked stages stay in that profile only & all online leader boards are kept separate for each.'   After I re-think I realise that if players can have multiple profiles it allows better players to dominate & ruin the lower leagues, so maybe after a few test run's players are put into a suitable league for their ability.

    Once the game is complete, polished, released as version 1.0, then after any necessary minor patches, I would be happy to pay extra for DLC containing all rally stages from all previous Colin McRae & Dirt titles, updated with better graphics of course ! I know a lot of people might complain about this as its nothing new but it would be nice to have all tracks in one game rather than needing 9+ different games installed

    Are you using a keyboard ? I have the same problem, I wish someone would develop a gaming keyboard that uses keys similar to the buttons used in console controllers - the harder you press the more you accelerate/steer /break

    Not repeating what I've put in previous posts so this is just a few more of my thoughts so far -   The ability to pause a race, change graphical settings including the screen resolution then continue racing very nice, a vast improvement from needing to restart the game. No tedious menu navigation, intro scenes or 'Hi dude I'm Dave your personal career manager, before we get started, bla bla bla'  I hope none of this crap finds its way into the full version. I also like yes as the default option for exit game

    DiRT Rally Bug Report - Menu Crash

    It's happened to me on different stages always from the screen where you can do repairs, after reloading the (not always the 1st attempt) I have been able to continue without skipping the stage. Not sure if Patch V0.31 has fixed this... will update if/when it crashes again

    I agree in part, NO KEN BLOCK STUFF,  I didn't finish a lot of the dirt games past a certain point because I ignored those silly gymkhana events - including moon buggy & dumper truck races. RBR, That game is brutally unforgiving, and this game is just a tad easier. - Good this is a game !, not real life ! - Make the physics as realistic as possible but be more forgiving with accidents, it's a game, games need to be fun !.  I'm happy with the current damage model, resetting the vehicle is fast with a 15 second penalty is much better than being made to wait & watch while  your car is being  rolled back on to its wheels before you can carry on.  I know we all need a new rally simulator as there are plenty of arcady alternatives but taking it to extreme realism would be a mistake.

    After reading other post with people asking for things like 'add a tuning system, so that you can chance for example the engine or the wheels' If this is added could race times from these tweaked cars be considered unofficial and not allowed in pvp competitions so its only driving skill that counts and no one is left at a disadvantage.

    Ok I know this maybe a bit off topic but still relevant, I only use a keyboard for gaming and find Tapping a key as fast as possible doesn't always give the level of control I need, usually steering too much.  I'd like to see a gaming keyboard developed that uses sensitive keys similar to buttons used in console controllers, with obvious benefits for racing games, in FPS it would also provide better control over how fast you walk/run & for normal typing drivers would allow you to set your preferred actuation point.

    With shadow settings set between low & high I notice the shadows change form as you approach them, adding more detail as they get closer. I find this a bit distracting so prefer either ultra low (off) or ultra. If other's share this view maybe cut the options to just these 2 settings or have a medium setting where the shadows are constant basic shapes only.
