    ffb fixed, some comms from devs

    There definitely are ruts. They may not be modelled in 3D visually, and may not pull as strongly as you might expect on the wheel, but the car is affected by them. When running at the rear of the starting order, I have actually almost rolled a few times when chucking it into a tight corner. The wheels get partly caught in a rut rather than sliding, nearly rolling the car.
  2. Rally Azores would be very cool and unique. Alternatively an Irish or IOM tarmac rally would be very nice.
  3. Sorry but you're being extremely touchy. In my original post I actually agreed with your suggestion, but expressed my opinion that you were exaggerating how much of a problem it is. For some reason you took this as an insult or attack (which it wasn't). You then proceeded to actually insult me multiple times for no reason. I chose not to react in the hope that you would chill out. Instead you have just carried on digging a hole in my absence. Forums are for discussion. If you post a suggestion, why are you surprised that people come and comment on it? It is OK to have different opinions, we are not trying to change your mind, just have a balanced discussion on the genuinely interesting suggestion you made.
  4. Wow, you shared your opinion, I shared mine. I will go back to not playing the game with my newly accrued self-affirmation. Thanks.
  5. You get 10 tries at the shakedown stage at the start of each event right? That gives you a reasonable amount of mileage for setting up the car. Plus, testing time is quite limited for rally crews in the real world normally. I agree that it would be nice to have a small test area for familiarisation with new cars and for making setups, but its not a huge problem as you seem to suggest.

    DIRT 2.0 "Adaptable" achievement is glitched for me

    There seem to be multiple achievements not unlocking correctly (including the one you mention). Im on Steam myself.

    Just make sure you put in the Game code before the steam code when during installation! It gets a bit borked if you do it the other way round.

    Couldn't get the setup to download the game from the disks so Im in a weird place right now; eager to get home to play but unsure if I will even be able to!

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - V1 - found a bug? Post it here!

    I've already posted this in the Technical section but this thread seems far more acitve so I hope you don't mind me posting here too. I received the PC deluxe edition in the post this morning but cannot get the game downloaded from the Disk(s). I have followed the install instructions and linked my code to steam etc. however, after the page in the launcher which asks whether I want any shortcuts, it just goes straight to finish. It does not download any files from the disk. It does not appear to be doing so in the background either. As it needs to tell me when to change disks, I imagine it should show progress within the launcher? I have also followed the troubleshooting guidance provided in the Readme. I can manually download the files from the CD to my computer, so it is not a drive reader issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The first proper closed public-road rally in England took place last year actually. The "Corbeau Seats Rally Tendring & Clacton". This was very much a pilot event for the start of closed road rallying in mainland UK. It was a success and is returning again in April this year. There was talk of including it in the British Tarmac Rally Champ but i think given its infancy, it has been left off the schedule for 2019.

    If the web page loads slowly, the background picture comes up before the pictures and text in front of it. So I had a split second of just that picture. Everything is loading instantly now so I cant get a screen of it without the stuff in front. EDIT: You got it nice! ^^

    Unsure if this has already been noticed, but i see a 306 Maxi on the DirtRally2 website: http://dirtrally2.com/ It's in the image behind the "Rise to the challenge" section. Is this an old photo used accidentally, or a legit 2.0 photo that shouldn't be there?
