DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

@Rallycameraman when my G25 broke, I emailed Logitech customer support and asked them to repair it. They were like "lolno" ... and I'm like "oh..." and they're like "but give us the serial number of the wheel and we'll send a G27 to you for free". And I'm like ... "k".

And here we are!
Will they also give me a G27 if I tell them my Driving Force Pro is a bit so-so?

Will tell them that some ham fell out of my sandwich in hope for a G27.

Just a quick update on WRC5....

Its swiftly dying on its arse! Their Facebook page is getting hammered with complaints.  I am genuinely disappointed to hear that, what a total waste of an official license.  :(

Pretty unfair on the guys in the dev team considering they only had a year to make a game that was new to them, but I can't say that I'm surprised that a WRC game (not made by Evo Studios) is in a bad state.

Well it looks like  my DiRT playing days are over for a while as my G25 has broken, and I really can't bring myself to play it on a keyboard.

My Driving Force GT broke a couple of years ago, contacted Logitech and they replaced it with a brand new one. Worth a try ;)

The physics guy has been quite active on RD forum and he's been clear with that the current engine can't handle a simulation in it's current state. He also has praised Dirt Rally on many occasions, even posting videos of him driving the MK2 Escort. He loves it.

Just had a look on their Facebook page: the posts weren't quite as horrendous as I was expecting, but there do seem to be a lot of annoyed gamers on there!

whwwhw wait ..waht? 
Your G25 broke during the warrany period or was expired? o_O

With warranty expired the avarege answer is: "Sir, go **** yourself. Have a nice day!"

anyway, what a lucky guy :)

Good.  They should be criticized and pummeled for releasing TRASH.  Feel bad for the people who spent their money on it.

@Rallycameraman If you have put some money aside, upgrade to a Thrustmaster T500 RS instead, a great upgrade from the Logitech G25 :)

So....A nice old fact.CMR2.0 had two different liveries for Subaru Impreza (albeit in different versions).One version (EU and JAP?) had Arai's Spike livery ad the other(US?) had the official one.Just a small off topic historical fact.

Make sense, Japan and Europe had laws against tobacco and alcool advertising way before North America did

I wouldn't buy the T500 RS but wait until the 6th of December for the T300 Ferrari Integral Racing Wheel Alcantara Edition. Brushless motor in the T300 base is better/smoother than the T500's  dual belt system. Also when you buy it new, the T300 Ferrari Alcantara Edition is cheaper than the T500. I'm waiting for that one to replace my G25. Amazing value for money imo!

WRC 5:
- No "old" Logitech wheels support
- Poor FFB and no settings to deal with it.

more than enough reasons to let it go... 
Its a shame.

When I was looking for a wheel, I realized that if you're looking at the consumer catagory, there are only one or two options.  You'd think they would support those.

WRC should take note, this is how their onboards should look like. Now we get dull dashcams with horrible quality.
