    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Yeah, that's the most tantalizing part. With the World RX license but only three circuits, and no plans for any DLC (rally or otherwise), Dirt Rally is really feeling like a testbed. I guess that was always the case, but seeing things like a limited rallycross mode are driving that home for me: that DR won't be a "full" game. But don't get me wrong, that's exactly what I signed up for. Which means a) I'm pulling for this game's success, and b) I'm getting really excited thinking about what the next proper Dirt game is going to be—how many more stages, what will career mode be like, will there be a full World RX championship?

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Isn't Istanbul Park owned by a subsidiary of FOM? I just try to imagine the strangest reasons for things not being allowed, since that seems to be the main goal for license holders (no damage allowed for first four Gran Turismos; cars couldn't flip in Forza until FM3; etc).

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    There would probably be huge licensing problems. Istanbul Park is owned by FOM I think, for starters, so their deal probably involves all kinds of arbitrary limitations—it can only have current F1 cars driving on it, these advertisers must be included, these weather conditions are forbidden, it can only be photographed from its good side, all copies expire and must self-destruct by 2018 etc etc etc. I don't know much about licensing content for video games, but from what I've gathered it's all about conjuring up the most byzantine, capricious, restrictive, developer- and player-hostile tangle of requirements, granting the developer the privilege for their game to be free profit-generating advertising for the license holder. Or something like that.

    Yeah, the slowest corner I remember hearing is a 3. This is going to be fast.

    And I even had 400k CR saved up for RX, but then spent it on a Delta HF and some new engineers . That just means more quality time with the Lancia in the meantime!

    DiRT Rally feedback list

    Tofu delivery car is popular around the world; popular as a rally car?, sorry, I dont think so. "AE86? In my rally?" It's more likely than you think. Popular in Canada too.
  8. Yeah, I wouldn't mind some sort of auto-scaling graphics when it's raining. The rain looks great, but cuts my framerate in half, from 30 fps to ~16 fps. This is with medium settings and 2xMSAA, and adaptive vsync (half refresh rate) on a GT 750M. (Edit: With AA off, the drop is to 22-25 fps.)
