    DiRT Rally 2.0, Version 1.5: Bug Reporting Thread

    Clubs: player name confusion In event standings, it seems player's platform names are shown (e.g. my Steam name). In championship standings, the CM/Racenet name is shown instead. Both in-game and on the clubs website.

    You can't, clubs are rally only

    So how do you set up/join a club? It says "go to dirtrally2.com/clubs/" but that doesn't work. There's only the DR2 promo page there. Also tried racenet.codemasters.com but neither DR1 nor 2 is even in the list of games to choose from.

    Still no Reliant Robin, travesty. There must be a Reliant Robin championship in RX

    RWD with a gamepad, any tips, hints, or previous threads?

    With acceleration mapped to a face button, it's no surprise you're struggling badly with RWD. It's much easier (if still not great) with FWD and 4WD to floor it most of the time, with RWD you really must feather the throttle and the face buttons simply can't do that. I hugely recommend setting throttle and brake to RT and LT, I use A for shifting up and X for shifting down in every racing game (iirc that's even the default in DR2). If you do, playing with controller is actually not an issue for RWD at all. I actually find RWD easier with a controller because my index finger is just so much more sensitive than my right foot, and so I actually perform better in RWD than FWD or 4WD. Practising in adverse conditions helps too, if you learn to control something in really bad conditions, you'll have a much easier time doing it in "normal" conditions. I sometimes practise RWD on ice in Monte Carlo with soft tyres, which is kinda fun and definitely helps improving my performance. In any case, you must set throttle to an analogue trigger.

    You don't see the abyss so you don't brake as much

    It's a good point, but it depends on how much you play rally games I guess. I used not to be a rally game enthusiast, I definitely liked them but was never possessed by them. That changed with DR1, for my liking it hit the sweet spot between brutality and accessibility and I was quickly obsessed with it. It was the ultimate rally game for me and I absolutely wanted to have those stages there because only in DR1 I could enjoy them the way I always wanted to. Definitely agree about Greece though. A pretty obscure location that was super awesome which is ideal. Can't tell if I like Wales or Greece more, they're both my favourites.

    That's a lovely one and I also really like the 70s ones. However the IROC-Z rules because it's so 80s which makes everything better by default as I've established earlier. The 90s one though, blergh

    The best Camaro. Because every pore oozes "80s ftw"

    Only slightly. The 80s gave us Tron. Aliens. Terminator. Star Trek Next Generation. The Simpsons. Knight Rider and Corvette C4. Honda CRX. Venom. Metallica. Slayer. NWA. Snap. Nine Inch Nails. NES. Master System. Mega Drive/Genesis. Ayrton Senna. We're in a rally game forum, aren't we? The 80s gave us motherf***ing Group B. The 80s were ****ing rad.

    Nonono, the 80s were the cultural peak in the history of mankind

    Yeah I love those JPS style liveries but driving around (worse, recording replays) in a "D+" livery makes me feel like a ****

    The Tyre Thread

    I've given up on medium entirely. Just had a championship in Poland with the M3, with only one long stage between two services. Tyres were still "new" afterwards, and I believe it was even the 16km stage. After two stages, they're always "used", but mediums are too. The game doesn't tell you how much used they are, it doesn't even tell you if there is any difference at all between "less used" and "more used". I can't even recall what comes after "used" because I've seen that maybe 2 times in my 160 hours of play time. So imo there isn't really a choice, I find it almost entirely pointless. I actually prefer DR1's "system" where you just didn't have to bother when there's nothing to bother anyway. What I also find annoying is tyre choice in time trials. You will never ever choose medium or hard unless you want to be slow, yet the default (and recommendation) is always medium, so you have to change it everytime. I'd really appreciate if the default was changed to soft, at least in time trial mode.
