Does CREST work for rallyx or just stages?

says it does not currently support it, so hopefully it will be coming soon. I can see an overview of Hell though, and it looks like it will be a very good tool!

Alas, I have a little moan for the Gossip thread. I popped out at lunchtime and visited the two biggest Sainsbury's stores in the area to try and get the steelbook: neither had it, nor could give any clue as to where I would find it. Bugger!

My mate bought the regular Legend edition in Game though and I bought a KFC to make up for the lack of steelbook. So still a pretty successful day.

I preordered the legend edition, which from game was supposed to come with the mini and mkII escort unlocked. I didn't get the escort code, and the mini code didn't work, as in I downloaded it and it didn't unlock anything. I wasn't too fussed as I prefer the Fulvia, but I was still annoyed. Plus I didn't get my unique engineer :(

I've probably already moaned that after calling all Sainbury's super-stores in Edinburgh I still don't know which ones will have the steel-book edition. Maybe in hindsight Codies should have had more retailers stock that edition...

If it's true that PC steelbooks can't be bought anywhere in UK then I'll definitely drive over to the biggest Sainsury's and try to get the PS4 one.

The CREST telemetry looks awesome, but if I understand it correctly it can only be used on Dailies?

He's probably a bit busy today! As I said, I'm not too fussed, I'm destroying my first season so far, got a 12 point lead with just Sweden to go!

Also up to 19 people in my league now! Anyone else on xbox feel free to join, planning on doing new events each week!

Did a few runs on Gravel Pikes Peak, that was awesome :)

Oh yeah, big thumbs down to our publisher Buka and retail stores - no ps4/xbox copies at all.

Downloaded update. Went in-game. Launched Pikes Peak with the 208 as the first thing. Twenty seconds in and got a puncture.

Sounds about right xD

Yeah, while I only tried one Super Store, which did have an advert up for the Sainsbury's exclusive steelbook edition, there wasn't actually a single copy of the game on the shelves at all.

They had a couple for the PS4 and XB1 behind the counter when asked, but after checking the computers, the staff at least claimed that none of their stores have any stock of the PC version. Can only imagine they are all stuck in some distributors warehouse with no where to actually go.
Can't force a shop to stock something they don't want after all.
Didn't seem worth checking the other two stores after that. :P 

Can't say it's come as much of a surprise. The only PC games they had at all were Football Manager 2016 and a Sims 4 bundle.

I think the moral isn't strictly about more retailers stocking them, just that if you're going to do limited editions, make sure it's with a store that have a proper specialty in entertainment or video games and know what they are doing with them.
Super Markets just aren't the right venue. They aren't even really equipped to handle pre-orders in store as a number of us found out.
It's not a scenario the staff are really familiar with on a regular basis outside of very special, planned occasions such as a new console launch.
Even then, they buy so much stock that they tend to favour the midnight launch model of just 'first come, first served'.

This is the *entire* PS4 section in a 64,000 square feet store, lol.

Asda have normal console versions, so sainsbury have not bothered with their exclusive deal by the sounds of it, what a waste.

The only other store I can think of that's bigger than the two I've already tried is a bit of a drive. Will have to venture that way at the weekend and have a look there!

In Greece with the group B discipline, I had been having a decent lead throughout three first stages till I cut through a corner and flipped the Quattro towards the cliff and lost 14 secs to a Qatari AI ... Bad bugger happens :D

I've no idea :(

I tried to retore my previous Dirt Rally folder, but I don't have one. Ah too bad for me. 
I don't think it would even be possible anyway.
Before, the game was just calling up static images and panning over them.
Now, it's actual video files. That's not going to be a simple drag-n-drop.
Heck, code has probably changed in the EXE itself for the different call-up.
