DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

My bet is on Grid 3/Autosport 2 as thats the only franchise I haven't heard anything about recently, probably wrong though lol
The game being developed by former Evo has already been confirmed to be a new racing IP. So not GRID.
Oh ok interesting, maybe its something similar to Motorstorm then, Baja racing of some sort? DiRTYSTORM!
You must have missed the part where Christina told us what the game was when we were having burgers!
I was down the other end of the table, missed out on this juicy goss!!
Damn, I missed that bit of gossip as well!

i usually use h pattern but with the escort and its 7 speed gears its a little annoying to have to switch back and forth
I have a feeling its how the buttons are mapped, in DR it saves the controls as one profile regardless of what preference you use. I like to switch my G25 shifter between sequential and H but I have to change my controls each time, the best way to do this would be to save a control profile for each preference if possible, @KickUp has this been considered?
I wish they added the option to use the clutch with a sequential shifter, because now you can only use clutch with a h-pattern (not talking about clutch override, I mean using it manually full time)

Do you mean having to use a clutch to shift in sequential or it will mis-shift? Is that a thing?

These lucky fans under that electric pole!


I've been registering to new contest on CodinGame and seen this. What will they work on, hm?

Open positions

Codemasters newest team in Cheshire is looking for talented and creative programmers to develop our next AAA game for console and PC. Combining Codemasters heritage in racing and Evolutions Studios success with Driveclub and Motorstorm you will become an essential member of an experienced development team. Open positions are:

- Core Tech Programmer

- Game Programmer

- Rendering Tech Programmer

I'd almost be interested enough to pretend to be able to do any of that, except it's all programmer stuff, and I'm not that kind of crazy.

That's my bet as well. Something similar to Motorstorm games.

The staff are all very friendly there and the tea making facilities were good. However I was disappointed by the lack of kebab pizza on site.

Same here :-) Unfortunately game companies rarely need my expertice in back end stuff :-/ Though I would love to work on optimizing racenet web backend and API calls, I have a feeling that it could be made quite a bit faster :-) 
One day, perhaps. I'll keep chugging away on my provisioning services for networking hardware in the meantime. Which is much more glamorous than game developer, just so you know...  :-P

How exactly do you mean about using a clutch  with sequential?  Only time you would us for 'override' and starting off.

Like if I wanted to use it like a normal manual with clutch. Since I have a DFGT, which only has 2 pedals, I add another wheel just for the clutch pedal, already tried that in DiRT and it works, but I can only use it as an override, because DiRT doesn't have an option for manual seq + clutch (I don't have a H-shifter).
In something like Live for Speed I can set it up like that, with just the up and downshift buttons and a manual clutch and it wouldn't even let me shift if I don't press the clutch and it would stall, if I stopped in gear, without depressing the clutch
Basically what I want is for a way to drive manual+clutch in DiRT, if you don't have a H-shifter

Without the auto clutch interfering. I feel ya!

Would not want to go too offtopic, but i got to ask what other pedals you use and how did you set them up. I have DFGT also and another DFGT (which i got cheap) and i've been wondering how could i use that other pair of pedals as a clutch. Now i only use it as a "dummy" clutch.. (so it's not even connected to anything)

i think what i asked was misunderstood, there is an option to set sequential with paddles and h shifter at the same time but it doesnt work, i was just hoping it would work in dirt 4

Are you suggesting that the reason we have no WRC cars or tracks in Dirt 4 is due to Codies cunningly blaming "licensing issues" for  them  *iseewhatyoudidthere* ? ;-)

Evo guys are working on a new IP. So not WRC either. It may be ambitious to think this way but, honestly, my bet is on a open-world Driveclub-esque game.

AC does this all pretty well depending on the car.  

Sequential Shifter + Clutch:


In RL with many seq shift RACING setups you will need the clutch to start off (and I believe to engage reverse), much like you do in a manual H pattern shifter, then all shifting is done with either a paddle or a variety of handles.   Correct me if I'm wrong, but on the countdown you would turn on the launch control, hold handbrake, release the clutch,  wait for the final 10 or 5 second count down and at go you release the handbrake.  No clutch is needed for the rest of the stage unless you stop for some reason.  

In DR if you select SQ shift, the clutch is irrelevant, since the game acts if every car is setup with launch control, its already on and the handbrake is all you need to worry about to get the car moving (besides throttle).

There is an option in settings when selecting what type of shifting you would like is:  Sequential + H Pattern + clutch.   Not sure if this is causing confusion or not, but this option sets you shifting mechanism based on what each car would typically (and historically) has in real life, i.e. select a Mini and you will automatically be put in H Pattern mode + Clutch, select a WRC car and you will automatically be put in seq mode (no clutch).


**Wish list**

What I would like to see is the seq shifting have the clutch when you are out on the stage and you for whatever reason stop or wreck.  Then you would need the clutch to get moving out of 1st gear.  Also, I would like to see the historic cars not have launch control or a handbrake at all when it was not used in that car.  In historic cars without a handbrake would launch like every other manual transmission, heel on aceleorator, toe on brake and left foot on the clutch, then just dump the clutch to start (probably not exactly correct).   Obviously these would be options, but it would be nice to see.

I keep the other set of pedals to the left of the main ones and use the other gas pedal as a clutch (because it's lighter than the brake) and leave the main ones as is. Just connect the other wheel, (doesn't even need to connect the power, just USB, because power is for the FFB, which you won't need), and in game just assign the other wheel's gas pedal as a clutch.

It would be nice to find out at a later date that this was true. Fingers crossed.

Thank you! I will try this today. I had my other wheel not connected to pedal set (thinking about modding it) and somehow i always doubted, but never tested that you could use 2 X DFGT without their input info clashing or even get compurer to recognize both wheels / let them work sametime
