Not entirely sure, but I noticed banner additions throughout the year with patching.

 

Yeah, I had the feeling that banners were changing. But it’s not uncommon. Some other games do it already for some years. Not sure if it would mean that a new MG would come to DiRT. It might be just a commercial. But it also could mean the MG TCR for GRiD. I would be suprised something MG would come to DiRT.

Seems strange for a company to advertise in a game if ones of their cars isn't coming to said game though, but yeah I'm struggling to see what MG would be added, unless they're planning to make an R5 MG 3 or something 😂

I changed the Co-Driver from the german one to Phil Mills after a couple of stages with the german one. On launch day. It took me 2-3 weeks to get used to english notes. Not that I didn't understand them, but translating them in the head while racing is quite difficult. But after a while it worked very well.

And he did a very good job, I like his voice and how he read out the notes.

It used to amaze me that Petter Solberg could drive that fast while translating Phil's pacenotes.

This is concept of MG3 for WRC, but i think the look should be similar to the R5 class for  DR 2.0, if it happens!?

Edit: Now i saw this was not official render from MG, and its based on older generation..

 If MG3 rally comes to game, then more likley will be New Model MG3

He speaks a mix of german and english and the voice changes from female to male at the end of a stage

I think it's a pity synonymous that Codemasters detects a problem but it does not fix / improve

As an example, the co driver comments after the stage
instead of making new and better comments there is the function to turn them off
or the Spain rally here in the forum many users want the option to exclude the spain rally

But it would be better if Codemasters improved the grip on the Rally Spain

the german co driver uses some english words because they have less syllables than the German translation. Therefor it is faster to read and understand and makes it easier to get everything in time. I like it this way, I also like the female higher pitch, cause it is easier to distinguish from the lower pitch engine.

syllable example:

schneiden vs. cut (2 vs 1)

I know what dont mean cut but not nicht schneiden its better (for German Drivers)
Anyone who prefers to hear English can take Phil

As far as I remember, DR 2.0 is the only Dirt game with language mix

The Co Driver at WRC 8 is better in some points, for example, the timing of the announcements

the french pace note is very bad too   example 

he said ninety ( french is quatre-vingt -dix)    but in french   the note  is  square ( french is équerre )

he said sky but you go  down of the road 

the note is very  high and not good 

he said close but you don t know if the close 1, 2 or 3 is not precise 

and lot of error

 honnestly i wait update for that  ,with another fictional co-driver it will cost less for codemasters

In WRC 8, the hairpin turns are also announced more precise than Dirt Rally

About the pace notes.

The co-drivers of Dutch rally drivers (the top drivers from the Netherlands actually have a lot of times Belgium co-drivers) usually use a lot of English in their notes, as SkyRex already mentioned as it also can be easier and more clear what ment in English. A Dutch co-driver language is also totally not necessarily in my opinion.  At least i don't see any point of it. Also I haven't seen anyone ever comment they would like to get a Dutch co-driver voice.

I think also compared to a lot of other countries, we (Dutchies) are used to understand and speak English as we not synchronize films, series and stuff like that. Therefore we ussually swap with Sweden with first place in the EF English Proficiency Index. In cities like The Hague it is almost common to speak English and even my nephew from 4 speaks almost fluently English.

One thing I also agree with @SkyRex is that a female voice is better to understand. At least with DiRT 3 and DiRT 4 I also preffered Jen Horsey.

french counting is all messed up and all over the place so i'm surprised you'd even co-drive in it.

️ The comments (now hidden) regarding telling people “just use X language” and all the heated arguments surrounding that, they stop here.

Just to make it clear I perfectly understand your reaction @PJTierney and it was not my intention to offend anybody. I have been attacked, insulted and I reacted. Of course for what is regarding me it stops here. Let's focus on the great game Dirt Rally 2.0 is and that is it 🙂

Good thing to stop. Only don't agree it was heated or anything. It was mostly respectfull and wirh a bit of humor.

Hmmm cone to think of it, Germans and humor 😄

Tension seems to be running high in the Gossip thread, I suspect due to the lack of actual gossip. 

Probably best if you defuse the situation with some season 5 news @PJTierney...

I could always bring back the discussion about the lack of DLC support on Oculus.  That and the claw back of the season pass.  That was a **** move.

Any Ford escort mk2 entusiast here ? I have a question: why the dirt 2 mk2 have 4 front light instead of the 2 I always seen in rally?
