    Asphalt physics : GRID (2019) vs DR 2.0

    So you are one of those modders... Breaking the integrity of the game by modding in cars that aren't suppose to be in the game, tracks-car combos that aren't allowed, and so much more apparently. You and similar modders like you are the reasons we aren't allowed to get our hands on the files for designing liveries for the DLC cars. I believe this to be extremely disrespectful and shameful behaviour. The reason we, honest players and modders, can't have the nice things we deserve...

    S2000 car(s) - does they seem possible?

    That'll be tricky as I don't do something iike that. 😛

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Ypres Rally stages are narrow AND have deep ditches on the side! So no massive corner cutting possible! That solves one major problem some of the locations have. Not in Ireland though but still would be fun as hell...

    S2000 car(s) - does they seem possible?

    Same opinion here. They would be a great addition but highly unlikely to be added. At least we can put some S2000 liveries on R5 cars. I'm actually planning to design a tribute livery of the Peugeot 207 S2000 from Peugeot UK and Kronos Racing on the 208 R5 and see what it looks like.

    Optimization

    There is a drop of frames for me as well because of the density of objects and crowds... I just lower the crowd graphics and it works. The crowds are not important, graphically that is, when driving.

    Something is coming closer...

    You feel less scammed because of the fact you scam the devs now. Very mature of you. Children between the age of 5 and 14 act like this. 😂

    Something is coming closer...

    I wonder what he would say if the base game was the updated version of Dirt Rally (all content the same but updated) and all the DLC content was brand new. Let me tell you something @KolysioN... You bought a rally and rx game which has masses of new content like stages, circuits and cars. People then get the option to buy DLC content from previous Dirt games but updated in so many ways and even new content, which is not forced on you or needed to play competitively online in clubs or online events. If you are not happy with the excellent content they offer as extra content, free for anyone to buy, you should try to force your brain to think and see things from a different perspective than your needy greedy behind. Unbelievable that we still have to explain it time and time again to those disrespectful needy people.

    Brightness options during a stage? Open to cheating?

    It's not cheating because you're using the settings as they present themselves. It is more a clever way of using the game's settings/mechanics. It isn't something they can remove either, the devs. It's to help those with sight issues or some other issue. I don't use it myself but I have seen others do it.

    I know it's not a fun decision but changing the way they do it. It must be too time consuming or expensive to implement a new system to change the way they store/encrypt files for the game or something. I believe it's not all that much work probably and should be possible in a day or so but the devs must be of the impression that it's not worth the effort. I asked if it was possible to decrypt the main texture file for each car and make certain files in there available to while encrypting the others, making them unable to extract or move. From the 24 files that you can find in a car's main texture files, I would be happy to be able to have access to four of them: xxx_glass_d.tga xxx_glass_s.tga xxx_main_d.tga xxx_main_s.tga That's all I would need to design spectacular liveries. If only they could make those available for us to extract and put back in once we were finished, I would be over the moon. And that's just me. Imagine all those people who would be absolutely overwhelmed with joy because of this! 😞 I already have a list of all those cars I would love to design for the game. These are just a fraction of what's on the list:

    You are correct. I tried to get the devs' attention concerning this topic via @PJTierney but apparently there's not going to be any way for us designers to get our hands on the files to create some spectacular liveries. It doesn't help that there are certain modders porting in DR1, D4, RX-cars or cars from different games like WRC 8 even (if I'm not mistaken) to drive on rally stages in DR2.0. I think one even made the cars from DLC packs available for download which replaces one from the cars from base game in a different class. Not entirely sure about this final sentence but I do seem to recall seeing something like this. I'm firmly against modders whom severely break the terms of service by such actions. It's modders like these which force devs to lock content behind serious encryptions which results in those magnificent DLC cars to be out of reach for those that just want to put a fantastic looking paintjob on those cars. I'm very disappointed by this reality but I do not blame the devs at all for this, however I do blame those modders going way over the acceptable limit of modding provided for us by the devs.

    @PJTierney This is probably the best car/fictional livery combo ever created by the team. Please give them my regards for the design of this livery. Also give them the advice to continue creating liveries like this one where you get an absolutely marvelous 'real rally livery'-feel. PC - Edited (Colours/contrast)
  14. Dear @PJTierney and the whole DiRT Team, As a competitive driver at the top end of the player base, I would like to point out a major issue/concern with the organisation of the eSports World Series Championship. This issue has been stated several times by others in the past as well, on Facebook or other media. The World Series website reads as follows: Now clearly this is NOT the case in this championship. The format is organised in a way so that not the fastest drivers in the world qualify but the fastest drivers for each of the three platforms. And this is where the problem, quite clearly, lies. Underneath you see four pictures of the latest round in Spain (Descenso por Carretera - R5-class). The first image shows you the classification (so far) of all the players regardless of platform. The second to fourth picture shows you the classifications for each of the platforms seperately. What you would expect, is that the top three drivers in the first image qualify as they are obviously the fastest drivers from amongst the whole player base. That, however, is NOT the case. It is in fact the top driver from each of the platforms that will be qualified for the World Series Quarter Finals, regardless if they set a top three time from amongst all drivers or not. If you look closely, the driver who will qualify on Xbox One is not even in the top 10 of fastest times from amongst the whole player base. I, myself, am two seconds faster than him. How is he allowed to qualify for the Quarter Final and others not, even though they are clearly a lot faster? And this platform separation goes on all the way through the Quarter and Semi Finals. Only in the Grand Final will the two fastest drivers from each platform come together to battle it out for the crown. It's not just in the current event that this is an massive issue. It's in EVERY single event. (I'll make a follow up post with another example to prove it.) I'm sorry to say this but none of the Xbox One players deserve to be qualified for the World Series Quarter Finals and neither are most of the PS4 drivers that qualified. Understand me correctly, I don't have anything against those players at all but this is just silly organisation. Look at the time differences! In some events the difference is over 10 or 15 seconds between the top PC time and the top Xbox time (e.g. Week 2 and 3 from Round 1)! How can they be counted amongst the best in the world? Several extremely talented players, TwoTwoOne being one of them and myself (slightly less talented), truly deserve that Quarter Final spot. It's an absolute shame that it has to be like this. And I'm completely sure that many others will see it the same way I do. This is absolutely 100% NOT a competition to find the best driver in the world.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I think this series of GIFs sums up what I just went through...
  17. Bloody hell, how's that happening... On the moment of revealing it! Should be fixed in the original post in a few seconds...
  18. Someone claimed that Xbox and PS4 players are at a serious disadvantage when it comes to optimisation etc. This is what he claims which was quite aggressive towards me, if I might add... I therefor decided to see if his claim had any truth to it. I borrowed an Xbox One from a friend and recreated the same conditions (default setup, one spare) and ran the same stage (Descenso por Carretera) with the same car (VW Polo R5). My objective was to come close to my official run (02:07.210) or my PB during practice (02:06.289). This is the result after trying for half an hour... P.S.: Don't laugh as I'm fresh out of bed and look funny sometimes. I suppose that this claim has no merit which further strenghtens my point...

    Letter to Santa | Year 2 Rally Spec

    @SkyRex Are locations they only thing you would ask for from Santa? Tell Santa which cars you'd like to take for a spin on your location wishlist... I agree with just about anything you wrote there. By the way, that Japanese rally gives me vibes from a whole range of rallies. I see a bit of 'vineyard stage' flow in there, a bit of technical Corsican bits, a bit of Condroz Rally (if it were ever dry), smudge of Ypres Rally and Barum Rally Zlín as well... The stages look like a blast to go through...
  20. What I would've loved to see is a qualification system where each of the platforms had their own complete championship. Instead of each winner per event for each platform and the overall winner after three events (1 round) for each platform, I would have loved to see the top three of each event + top three of the overall standings after one round be qualified. Those will battle it out in the quarter and semi finals for each platform. Instead of doing the grand final between the two best drivers per platform, you organise a true final for each of the platforms. Then you get a PC, PS4 and Xbox World Champion. And maybe then you can do the ultimate battle between the champions of each platform: a Race of Champions... This should fit nicely in the way they organise it right now, even with the live events and all. Doesn't it make more sense this way?
  21. Who? The Xbox players? I highly doubt that... Once again, the fastest drivers amongst all players, regardless of platform, should be qualified...
  22. These are the results for the penultimate event of the World Series Qualifiers: (image1 = all DR2.0 players | image2 = Steam | Image3 = PS4 | image4 = Xbox One)

    Stay tuned and watch out for a new livery I'll release this weekend or next week. The Bedoret Fabia R5 livery (cfr. image) has been extremely popular and the upcoming livery is along the same lines...

    I've fired up my rig again after being slightly burnt out but had a lot of fun while testing the C4 for a club event and the Fiesta R2 for the eSports World Series event. And I must say @PJTierney I'm happy to see the new liveries added by the team. There are several of them capturing the essence of what a proper rally car livery. Two examples are the black and yellow livery that's on the Mirage R5, VW Golf Kit Car,... and the one on the Fiesta R2 (cfr. images below).
