  1. Does this work for you? I'm just getting an error message when selecting the game location.

    You don't seem to like lots of things..

    Another factor is that Dirt Rally came out of nowhere. No one expected a sim oriented rally game from Codies and one day it just dropped out of sky. No hype, no expectations, no whining, people were just in awe what just happened. I love Dirt Rally but I feel it's already a bit of a 'rose tinted glasses' effect going on when looking back at it. That said, the release of DR2 has been anything but smooth and I hope they manage to iron things out in the end. Underneath all the problems this is far superior to Dirt Rally.

    Two things about the (lack of)communication. - This is not Early Access. You can't compare this release to DR. - Codemasters went on the stock market since Dirt Rally. This legally limits what they can communicate.
  5. Hey, So I've been having some issues with my Thrustmaster T500RS wheel being inconsistent in how strong the FFB is when playing Dirt Rally 2.0. For example, last night I had my FFB dialled in, felt crisp and I had it at a strength level where I had a nice feeling of weight through the steering and self aligning. Today I started the game again, same car, same stage and same FFB settings, but the forces felt through the wheel and the weight of the steering feels like it's at about 50% tops of what I had yesterday. This has been an issue since the start. If I bump up the SAT to get it to around the same feeling as before, if I start the game again, the FFB will suddenly be too heavy. I know some wheels weakens when they get hot, but this seems to come randomly, normally between game starts, not during a session. The fact that it can change from one day to another eradicates the theory that it's heat, since the wheel/PC has been shut off for a whole night. I've always blamed this on my wheel hardware of software but this is the only game that it's acting up like this and I've tried different USB-ports, different FW, drivers etc. Does anybody else resemble these issues? If so, do you also use Thrustmaster?

    Yes, but there's usually a dry and a wet leaderboard.

    FFB strength variations?

    Yeah, no, it's a significant weaker FFB, nothing to do with how 'warmed up' I am. It's not a subtle difference.
  8. You should obviously start threads at Reddit and Steam forums with the title 'Landrush is coming in DLC. That'll be.... fun.

    It sure will help, but the suspension travel is still very limited compared to the R5's for example.

    They don't really have enough suspension travel to work properly on anything but tarmac and even there it'll be so so if it's bumpy.

    Oh we're absolutely looking at the same physics, nothing has been changed in that regard.

    The floating behavior of the rear end becomes more noticeable with high speed, downhill sections and camber. It puts the cars in weird angles and makes the cars feel a bit sloppy, especially when you exit fast corners. If you exit a fast right hander and you get to the point where the car is about to straighten out, you can get this little extra nudge where the rear end just slightly moves to the left just as you straighten the car out. This could obviously occur IRL if you overcome the lateral grip, but this isn't the case here. It's important to remember we're not dealing with GT3 cars that produces downforce, most of the cars we have actually produces lift instead so some 'floatiness' at high speed isn't wrong per se. The effect just seems a bit overdone. That said, Germany's road character fits the current handling much better so it feels way better than Spain! Hopefully there is still time to look at it

    All the best Xtina. It's been a pleasure having you around

    The first iteration of DR the cars were excessively planted due to waaaay too much drag and downforce. The WRC spec cars did 0-60 in what, 7 seconds or something and if you simply released the throttle on a straight the car would lose speed extremely fast coming to a complete stop. Thanks to that the car hardly lost grip at all on tarmac. When they corrected these things with V2 physics, tarmac ended up on the opposite side of the spectrum feeling too loose and 'floaty'. Some degree of 'floatiness' is to be expected as cars without proper aero will generate lift rather than downforce at high speeds. There are still oddities in the tarmac handling, but Germany feels much better than Spain imo.

    Is there any particular reason there is no wet leaderboard in TT?

    Spanish tarmac is smooth as ****. Esp the stage that they modeled it after.

    They did make Germany rougher in DR2 compared to DR, which is a good thing. Panzer Platte is really rough IRL.

    To be fair I think the tarmac in Germany feels miles ahead of Spain. I love how the rough parts feel. It lookss fantastic as well. So much better than in DR!

  20. Re-map your handbrake and give it a try.

    FFB fixed? No, we need VIBRATIONS!!

    Mostly RWD stuff. Opel Asconas(A/B), Volvo 142, VW Beetle, Ford Sierra. Did a few outings in a Volvo 245 and even one Mercedes 180, that last was was a real cruise ship to guide around a speedway circuit Aren't there almost exclusively Fiats and Beetles in Finland?

    Correct sir 👍

    I'm not saying there is zero vibrations. It's nothing like a go-kart though.

    Go-karts doesn't have a steering rack in that sense. You have the wheels connected directly to what you hold in your hands. If you turn the steering wheel 10 degrees your wheels will turn 10 degrees. It's a very different thing. I've both raced and daily driven lots of cars without power steering. You get really heavy steering when stationary, in the pits or at hairpins, but there is not much vibration coming through the steering wheel. In cars with power steering you lose the 'direct connection' feel to some degree and it can feel a bit vague in comparison.

    Well, since power steering failure isn't a thing in the game and you don't get vibrations through the steering wheel without power steering, not really Making the wheel extremely heavy with power steering failure would be really neat though, but I guess that would end up with many burnt out FFB wheels out there.
