So if I'm looking into having a PC built DR requirements would be ok? I'm a little PC challenged so any suggestion are welcome.
Simple answer to everything.  Get the fastest gfx card you can afford, i5 cpu. 16 gb ram (debatable 8or16).  Everything else is a bonus for what you have left... ssd, etc
The price difference between 8 and 16GB of RAM is so negligible these days compared to the rest of the cost that you might as well go for 16, SSD though is most definitely worth the money even only for the OS
Not in Portugal. 16GB is exactly the double of the price of 8GB and if I choose to go with 8GB (DDR4) the money I safe is enough to buy an 120GB SSD.
FWIW, when I upgraded from 8GB to 16GB there was no performance change at all in DR, so don't feel like you're missing out. The SSD is absolutely more beneficial, load times are only about 5-8 seconds at most.

Sorry, off topic! Uh, kebab 22B pizza New Zealand @KickUp 4 Your Stage mystery location!
There we go, back on track.

Being from new zealand i would also like to have a rally location here, the otago leg of the silver ferm rally would be awsome but being that has tarmac to gravel and its a real stage there is slim to no chance of that happening now, still anything here would be fantastic

Yeah the DDR price difference has been a fallacy for the past year at least and it's getting way more expensive in general this year.

Also the game doesn't use that kind of RAM so no gains to be made there.  SSD on the other hand, everything to gain there:)

Hi,

Could anyone tell me the best place to find a retail copy of Dirt Rally PSVR? I understand it is DLC but would prefer a physical copy. 

Nobody seems to to be aware of it?

Thank you, Steve
If you are in the UK then Argos is the place to go. As for elsewhere I think its going to have to be Digital.
Thank you for the reply.

I will take a walk up at lunch tomorrow

This will be my 3rd copy of Dirt Rally, really looking forward to the PSVR version. Steve
Thank you very much for the support.

@KickUp (I cant remember if I asked this already here) Is it possible to adjust car settings on the fly in something like the Dirtfish joyride? So pause it, adjust then keep going? For someone who likes to play around with the settings, this would be great instead of having to go back to the menu each time unless its seamless?
Yes, we have live tuning in the DirtFish rallyschool area :smiley:

If only we could bring back Group B rally with these pedestrians (they never die, they just run and dive).  I could only imagine 30 of these in front of you running as you drive (through? eek)

@KickUp  I know this may sound like a silly question but will all car team liveries have number plates? Some didn't in DiRT Rally and I always thought that was a small detail that was missing, because rally cars need them for the liaison. After all, they are road-legal machines.

Most will.

@KickUp, I do believe some rallys will give wavers to allow certain cars to compete without a "legit" plate. Monte Carlo 2016 for instance. Is this true?

I don't know the full specifics but I think some do.

This could work perfectly in a rally game. Just make the spectators dive away instead of resetting the car.

If only it was a simple as that. Totally agree that it would be a perfect addition though.

Not so. I bet you can't find any photos of a car without at least a rear number plate (absent accident damage of course!)

Example Neuville at Tour de Corse 2016:

Rear:


Front:


Insurance for rally cars in France (at least for WRC rallies) is set on the car's number and not on the plates, so they don't have plates for French WRC rallies (Monte Carlo, Corsica and the old Rally de France)

DiRT Rally is really low memory consuming, I've never got it more than 2GB usage.
BF1 for instance takes 4,5GB to .... whatever you have. Usage is usual around 6,5GB because it can't get more (I've got 8GB, OS takes around 800MB and the rest is for different stuff like TS, etc.)

Well, it would be quite silly if they didn't get thetarmac to feel good as that is the only surface they have ;)

However, the WRC mod cars still feel like GT3 cars with a rally skin. They are not nimble enough imo.

Well yes, alright xD

The fiesta one isnt too bad, I do agree though. I think its mainly down to the dirt physics being non existant though so they work reasonably well considering. I'm hopeful they do try their hand at it in the future, the force feedback is really good and the cars don't turn too fast like they do in DR (can't remember how that aspect felt in D4 now lol)

@KickUp ; If D4 does really well... would you consider releasing a free DLC where we can get you as codriver? :-D
