Did you know that the long-time members of this thread have had a DiRTy Gossip Discord server for a while?

You do now 😉

Seems to keep you occupied on NYE.  I don't claim to be correct, I don't really mind either way...

You say - original S1 up to 1984?

Audi media press release
Mind they haven't pointed out which one is the A1 and A2, so the entire list loses on credibility a lot. I wouldn't be surprised if that list was made by someone who was born when Audi was getting those victories. @BrySkye linked to articles that were released at the time those events took place, not 20 years after, which makes them THE most accurate source of information you can find on the internet.

The new amazing Audi car will not come alone, since we are also working on the Audi R18 E-Tron, TT VLN 2014, TT CUP 2015, A1 S1, Sport quattro S1 E2 and TT 2015 models."
That's easy then. They are making a fictional car, so they don't need a license :p Remember, it's Quattro S1 and Quattro E2, not Quattro S1 E2 ;) I learnt my mistake, now I'm keeping the proper naming.
The official name is Audi Quattro S1 E2.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audi_Quattro
It's not. :p Amazingly enough, Wiki is wrong.

Rather more detailed, sourced account including where the misconception came from.

The info at this link is indeed correct: I too spent many years with the wrong interpretation of the quattro Sport designations.

There is more information on the subject in the (very excellent) McKlein quattro book...



...much like the Impreza WRC/22B nomenclature the incorrect designations for the Sport quattro are so widespread on the web (including Wiki!) I'd say it's virtually impossible to correct them all!

I'll start a new year's gossip then. I've been greping files for some interesting values and I've found something like this:

Action id="Replay Youtube"



Any Youtube Integration is planned or what was the purpose of these in some previous games?

hello  happy new year

can someone explain me why  on gravel events  in championship i often beat all with  20-35 seconds  over 2nd place
and on tarmac it's a miracle if i  become 1st?

i drive smooth,cut the corners as  much i can (monaco)  i don't understand

maybe the leaderbord times are too harsh  or  like some said tarmac physics are not so cool  :D  (porky)

In Monte Carlo it's all about the flow. You don't have the flow, you're slow even when you're doing everything "by the book". The moment you get flow, you're literally starting to "fly" and just go like mad through the stages.
In Germany it's all about being aggressive on the hairpins and keeping the car planted and smooth through the sweeping bends along with braking as late as possible.

I guess everybody has favourite events. I can beat the AI quite handily in Wales and Germany, while I struggle in Greece and Monte Carlo. Finland and Sweden sort of don't count, because I'm not yet really familiar with them.

Strangely though, there are stages in Sweden I lose lots of time to the AI, while I can beat them at others, although my driving doesn't feel particularly fast.

as you say "the flow"   is missing :D  

maybe i record a session  and upload it on youtube  and share;  for understanding where i did wrong :)

New Years Resolution: let's talk more Gossip, stop trying to correct each other, it's really not that important beyond having a little fun with each other.  

I think this thread has lost it purpose a little. 

Missing Lee feeding us hints and keeping us guessing.

Happy new year! Hugely excited to be able to play DiRT Rally on PS4 in April.

Has there been any rumors about moving the game to the next ego engine before console launch? Is it even possible?

It would be very interesting to know how compatible the new engine is with old content, purely out of  my own curiosity.

We are continuing to develop on the engine we used for PC and for all the previous games our studio has made. It's always newer than the last. The 'next' ego engine isn't really a relevant term anymore.

Sounds resonable!

As a software developer myself, I'm always curious to learn a bit about the inner workings of the games I play. I understand you cannot give away any details, but it would be very interesting to get some glimpses of how you guys do your everyday work, what methodologies are you following, etc..

I have been interested to know how you do releases, is there like a stable branch from which you do your releases? How long is the typical release cycle? Does it differ on different platforms? I'm guessing Steam is the most flexible one? 

I guess it might be an idea for a blog post? :)

  Even over heavy hitters like Forza 6 with bottomless budgets.

Yeah, well a lot of people don't like Forza because it's not a simulator since it doesn't do flags or whatever. DR came out of nowhere and is really good, however I do wish they had more content like the original Dirt or Dirt 2. Those games with DRs physics would be amazing.

Fantastic onboard driving especially from the bonnet view. 
That's indeed some fantastic onboard driving.

@KickUp: Is it possible to have this view after you've smashed the windscreen really badly in D:R?
Imagine the great footage of a helmet cam in that position! :lol: 

Never underestimate the creativity of Belgians. :lol: If there is a way, we will find it.

I'm pretty sure you can already do that but you need a VR headset.

So @KickUp,  any gossip to celebrate the new year? ;)
Yep
The mention of some really exciting stuff coming through @KickUp 's inbox (during the DiRT Show) made me really tingly and I have no idea what it could be! :D 

It could be so many things... But I'd guess it would be some sort of an external partnership, not an internal go ahead to build a new feature into the game.

In the best news of 2016 so far I'm pleased to announce that I've managed to fix my Logitech Profiler issues and am back on DiRT Rally. Aaaaand I really suck at it....

One thing I don't think I've seen speculated upon here much is that Amazon pre-order of the Legend Edition, or whatever it's called.

The DVD of Colin McRae I understand, makes perfect sense, but what would the Mini pack be? In particular, what would be different between a 1071 Mini and the one we currently have in the 60s class?

I heard that Legend edition will contain Fixed  stuff for current game breaking issues like Finland stages in summer, Fixed spoiler in Impreza R4,  interior in Impreza '01 and as pre order bonus You will get production version of i20 instead of crappy concept that we already got in game.
