Just thought of something whilst playing dirt rally, not sure if it's been covered.

@KickUp we know the numbers and names on the cars will be on the body not the windows, but in rallycross, will we be able to get our name on the sun visors in the windscreen?






No, sorry. Also on some cars they are on the side windows. 




That's a shame, I was watching the replays on dirt rally and thought it would be cool to have my own name up there with all of the others. Didn't realise some had it on the windows though!


I'll be ok in that respect...



 :D

@KickUp I heard there's a prize livery for the i20 in the special event. How many non-prize liveries do you have on the Hyundai? You said you were going to work your own livery magic on it too.

You can always ask for a refund if you're not happy.


On Steam? I am not sure you can. 
@KickUp

Could you share some info on a possibility of free weekend on Steam, please?

If you play less than 2 hours you can ask for a refund.

I wasn't sure if you were serious, guess so.  

Um it's very unlikely to go on a free weekend on or near launch, I'll just say that.

If less than two hours played and owned for less than two weeks it can be valid for a refund.  I do not think that the two weeks part is from available date, rather, actual purchase date.

Why on earth would you give a free weekend away at release? Drop a demo sure, but a whole weekend is unrealistic dude.

@KickUp Reasons for not being able to obtain Pikes Peak are obvious but have you ever considered adding the European variant Mont Ventoux? It is a bit longer than PP (22km) and Peugeot used it for testing their PP car before going to the US.

We did but we have decided to focus on other disciplines now that Pikes has gone.

I find it pretty awesome you even considered that option o:) ! I understand choices had to be made for D4 but at least I know this location is in the back of your head somewhere :)

We can still create events that remind of Hill Climbs. Create an event and use the same stage for 2-3 runs.

If only we could choose to disable co-driver calls when creating custom events. Would add another level of challenge having to read the road with your vision only.

What a BS.
"Pierwszy gameplay z nowego DiRT4. Zdecydowanie najciekawszą formą rozgrywki, która pojawiła się po raz pierwszy jest rallycross, będący oficjalną grą mistrzostw świata. W Polsce twarzą DiRT4 / Rallycrossu będzie Tomasz Kuchar.".

translates to:

"First gameplay from new DiRT4. Definitely most interesting part/mode of game which made it first time to the series is Rally Cross, which is official game of WRX. In Poland DiRT4 face will be Tomasz Kuchar" (a guy who was a rally driver, now he starts in Polish RX championship).

So there was no Rally Cross in DiRT Rally? These reporters....

No, there was no rallycross in Dirt 4 because there was no Dirt 4 before. You meant Dirt Rally, didn't you? ;)

I'm a member of a growing simracing team and have experience writing articles. I'm more than happy to do some clips of the game with some normal non crashing style simulation mode driving. http://scuderialeone.com  :D

Yup, couldn't edit the post for 120 seconds due to a spam-prevention :/ I've spot it just after clicking save...
Thinking too much about 4 I guess :P

This was from a Polish event, they did not get any preview codes sent to them. Also, Paul already explained the actual dev team has very little control over who gets the preview codes in the first place.

That said, it's still strange that no other videos surfaced than the dutch let's play video. Are they really the only people with a preview code?

I have a feeling I (or someone else) may have asked this before, so apologies in advance if that is the case @KickUp, but can you confirm if the rallycross MINI Countryman is based on the 1.6L version (and if so is it at the "full" weight as per the 2016 regulations) or is it now a 2.0L?

I'm glad to see XBox have up'd their DVR capture limit to 10minutes.  That should be sufficient to capture most stages/races in their entirety!  The previous 5 min limit was quite restrictive
