    I thought the clubs (leagues) stuff was really interesting: *Improved event creation and curation on DiRT4game.com. *Full Your Stage integration (generate stages on website, with on-the-fly spline graphics!) *Hidden Points *Custom penalties *Brand new, scalable scoring system to support tiny Clubs, huge *Clubs, and everything in-between. ...oh, and they're Cross Platform. ;)Cross-platform! :love: That's a big boon for my gaming community.

    Yup That's awesome, thanks! My 4-y/o loves playing the female biker in Burnout Paradise, but I have to get her into rally. A girl driver and pink livery might do it.

    @KickUp I saw on the AMA you mentioned driver portraits (and it looks like there are at least three different driver faces in the screenshots released so far)—will that include male and female faces?

    There are some bits of information that the co-driver will relay to you sometimes before the start of a stage.  Like how he's Mr. Smooth and you're Mr. Steady?

    Gamereactor has the videos with no one talking over them.

    You can see clutch override is an option at 5:24 in this gameplay video. Note that was in the arcade ("Normal"), not sim, handling mode, so it really looks like you can tailor Dirt 4 to the exact experience you want.

    Just for you: https://twitter.com/dirtgame/status/825062522097123328 Cannot wait, GRID's team management was so good. Looking forward to hearing more about the driver customization.

    Any hints about the career mode's "create your driver"? @urgaffel hinted at customizable racing suits. Customizable face or gender? Can we make our own Michèle Mouton or Nasser Al-Attiyah? Player name and flag on the window?

    Will leagues and track-sharing be cross-platform?  :#

    In the Erased Citizens gameplay vid, they show a pic of the controller layout, and up on the dpad is Roadside Repair. In the service area there are updates about any injuries AI drivers have sustained. Obviously this means that if you perform a roadside repair in a Welsh stage, you should run the risk of being bitten by a snake. Australia too, of course—"Co-driver was attacked by a drop bear while making roadside repairs", that sort of thing.

    In DiRT Rally, if you press and hold the downshift, it goes straight to 1st gear Why am I only learning this now :astonished:

    Jen Horsey (Dirt 3) is coming back, so you can choose between her and Nicky. Edit: This thread moves fast. :expressionless:

    Okay. Feel free to close this tab then.

    Interesting. So there'll still be a place for Dirt Rally when you want to jump Colin's Crest. I wonder if anyone at CM plays much Rallyman? ;)

    If D4 isn't too much more demanding than DR, I'll be playing it at 3 (and still enjoying it).

    The Dirt 4 announcement thread is disappointing. If more of the tidbits in this thread got out there, there ought to be more enthusiasm from the rally-or-nothing crowd. Dirt 4 sounds to me like everything I could hope to expect from a Dirt 4: the variety of content of a mainstream Dirt game, built on the philosophy of Dirt Rally, with all the options to let D3 fans and DR fans get the experience they want and everything in between. I'm in. I'm excited. I'm hyperventilating.

    Stitched together, they have to be. You can't run every possible variation of track and record the audio for it in 1 continuous string If i heard correctly from Coleman un the post under you it seems like they put both Grist and Horsey in the Dbox. So it may be a comprimise? I'm watching that now, and just heard that. "Putting Grist in the D-Box and having him rattle around was quite fun."

    Can anyone who's played D4 talk about the co-drivers in the handmade stages? Are Grist and Horsey's calls recorded naturally like in Dirt Rally, or are they stitched-together samples like in the before-times?

    2020 FIA World Rally Championship

    I think the Yaris gets the award for best looking and sounding car. Red Bull TV gets the award for feels-most-like-Sky-F1. I liked the segment where Webber and Chen drive a stage in a road car, and hope there's more stuff like that, plus Chen's Going Straight Sideways series. RBTV also collects the award for best maps, although I'm not less hot on the "speed section"/"twisting section" stuff. Bring on Sweden.

    2020 FIA World Rally Championship

    I'm conflicted because I'd love to see M-Sport win today (in lieu of Hyundai), but to start this new era with an Ogier win... Fair play to him though and he's had to fight for it. Really promising start for Neuville and Hyundai though, if this keeps up it's going to be an awesome season. And hopefully Meeke has used up all his bad luck. So here's how I balanced WRC+ and Red Bull TV on Saturday: watched the pre-show from the highlights on RBTV, watched the highlights show on WRC+ until the live stage and then paused it, watched the live stage on RBTV with WRC+'s broadcast synced in the background and muted, unmuted WRC+ during RBTV's ads, watched the rest of the WRC+ highlights show after the live stage, then watched the highlights post-show on RBTV. Seemed to work out.

    The Red Bull TV coverage is really good, and they're just giving it away for free. More event-focused and less personality-shenanigans than the Red Bull Dakar Daily show. And with their Event Analyzer timeline-bookmarks, I can just watch their pre- and post-show segments, and watch WRC+ for everything else. This season is getting better and better (except for the spectator death

    Yeah, if your current sub is still active, you have to cancel it first and then pay for the new one. Their system is as stupid as their app which keeps losing my login information despite showing me as logged in.  Ironically i have to log off and on again for it to believe my account should have access to the WRC+ content. So I initially thought that was my issue too but even with it being canceled when it get to the point to either put in my credit card or go to paypal the pay now button just doesn't do anything.  It even shows a URL when I hover the mouse over it.  It's the weirdest thing. Lots of people have been having that issue, since November at least. I only got it to work by creating a brand new user account on my computer (guest account on OS X) and trying from there.
