I'd say, one in every 4 times I've had to either recover or do a roadside repair Nicky stops talking! Read: NO PACE NOTES. 

The first time this ever happened I biffed it right into a tree really hard and I actually thought you could injure your co-driver! I even looked over to see if Nicky was conscious or not lol! But he was still bobbing his head up and down holding his pace notes. Then I thought maybe you could destroy the intercom or something. 

But, now I've noticed it happens sporadically after a recovery or roadside repair. Yet, when you finish the stage he's right back to commenting on how you did. 

I've fiddled with every audio setting and all the preferences when this happens with no luck. 

Honestly, it's oddly satisfying and peaceful driving in silence. Either way, I'd rather not accidentally wrap my car around a tree because the turn I thought was a 4 is actually a 1.

I've had the Daily event crash twice on me, once before 1.04, and once after (Today)... I'm on the Xbox One.
The first time, I finished the event and it froze at the leaderboards (had a repetitive sound/stutter going, had to power off).. the second time, I finished the event, the next screen never came, just remained black... only thing on was a circular arrow down in the bottom left that was greyed out and not moving.

I had to power off/quit both times and ended up with a DNF each time.
Ditto. Went to finish my 2 remaining stages of the monthly , same deal. Froze ,reboot = dnf

But it'll also randomly freeze opening LB's

Team members (mechanics) are still used in multiplayer sessions.
Can't earn that much money to sign new ones after that and signing new members during a multiplayer session is impossible.
Also their contracts ends pretty fast even though you signed a mechanic for 6 championships and after one multiplayer session with 1 event (3 stages) he's gone?!

Then they are not used?! Ok, thanks for that info!
But despite that it would be nice if they were not used even you use your own team/car

Since i got for free a tier A Chief Engineer offer ( i unlocked him completing some Championship, i don't remember which one ), Garcia is his name, i don't get any new offer of other Tier A Chief Enginner's, he's the only one. Is it supposed to be like that?

I'm level 57, with all my Team Facilities at Tier A, and all Team Members at Tier A as well. Fortunatelly, i achieved this before this Garcia guy got " stuck " there ( got a better Chief Crew )

I guess code masters can't even be bothered to update the bug report thread on steam forums for v 1.04. I think it speaks to the compete lack of concern about the pc version of this game. Really seems like they're too busy fixing bugs on the console version to be bothered about the optimization the pc version sorely needs. 
Edit: never mind it's my fault for assuming they would update the thread like they've done here rather than make a new one.

I've found a game-breaking bug on Xbox.

  • Career
  • Historic Rally
  • Historic Intercontinental Series
  • Sweden
  • Egenas Sji - Backlopp (Ner)
  • MG Metro
  • Gamer Handling

Every time I complete this stage and drive up to the marshal post, the screen fades to black after showing my time. 
The screen stays black and never goes to the post-stage screen.

The only way to get around this is to Retire from the event or Abandon the Championship.

I cannot share my setups to Steam friends. It just won't appear in their mailboxes no matter how many times I share.

I'm playing on PS4 and on the newest version of the game.

I was playing multiple Welsh rallies on the Jam Session in a row. One rally per championship only. I had service between each of the stages, since I was testing with my friend and we were trying to do a good loan car setup for the 2001 Subaru. The bodywork damage that I got stayed with the car and kept getting worse and worse throughout the rallies even though in the repair menu it said that the car was okay. After I had the setup dialed in properly I went to freeplay to try the setup. I took the same loan car and the car still had the bodywork damage. I hadn't driven the car at all on the freeplay event yet, it was the first service. 

I've also noticed that Pro Tour eats contracts like crazy. I had 4/6 championships remaining on my staff's contracts and I did a 2 stage event in Pro Tour only to go to the staff screen to see my chief engineer be there by himself. I lost a few 200,000 dollar mechanics because of this. I've heard/seen that it's good to use the loan cars for Pro Tour to prevent the staff disappearance, but there's a problem as well. Most of the cars are undrivable with default setups and I can't use my own setups since my engineers tuning skill is higher than the average tuning skill of 40 that the team's engineer has that you loan the car from.

On Lancia Stratos and Renault Alpine the view stays really far away from the dashboard/steering column even when I've moved the seat as close as possible. It's rather stupid to look at the empty steering column (and a ignition lock without keys on the Alpine) since I've disabled the in-game driver and wheel. It's be great to be able to move the seat more forward on those two cars.

On the branding suite, I had two logos placed on top of each other (shown in picture that is behind that link, couldn't get it working otherwise, sorry). As you can see from the photo, the sponsors are in slots 4 and 6 and they get on top of each other on the rear left corner of the car. I was using the second to last livery available. So far I've only noticed this with the 2001 Subaru that I have in the pic as well.

These are some bugs/issues I've noticed with the game, hopefully those are easy for you guys to fix.

Experienced another bug today, on PS4, game version 1.04.

I started the Triple Crown: Rally event earlier this week with Fearless difficulty. Obviously I won't play through that thing in one sitting. While I was midway through that event I wanted to do dailies and some online Jam Session rallying. I switched the gearbox mode from "manual sequential" to "manual h-pattern w/ clutch" and that changed my difficulty setting to "Champion (Custom)" which has been happening through out the existence of this game and was fine for me because of that. What wasn't fine for me was that next time I went to the Triple Crown: Rally event, my difficulty setting in that as well was "Champion (Custom)", even though I put the difficulty back to Fearless before going to the Triple Crown: Rally event. I wasn't able to switch back to Fearless on that event/championship so I drove the last rally I had left and I only got the golden badge that you get for completing championships with "Champion" difficulty. 

The difficulty for a certain event shouldn't change by itself for a championship, if you use another difficulty setting for freeplay and online playing. Of course this wouldn't be a problem if you could use h-pattern w/ clutch on that Fearless difficulty.

+1 It's been driving me up the wall too! Total ball ache when you complete a championship to see it was on a the lesser difficultly because I rejigged the gear method for the umpteenth time. 

Also the jam sessions shouldn't use up engineers, I found myself in a really good public rallycross room (they do exist!) and didn't leave it for the best part of the night knowing full well my engineers had buggered off.

PS4 and Logitech G29 WHeel. There is a problem with game. It will not recognize the L2 or R2 buttons in game. My handbrake is wired to L2 so this is a game breaker. Neither buttons are recognized in game. I started dirt rally and they are working correctly and fully programmable and recognized, so it is a Dirt 4 issue. Please address this soon so  I can play the game. It does not recognize some of the unique G29 buttons, but not a concern right now Thank you

I can fully confirm this "difficulty changing" issue. If the difficulty is changed for a certain event like free play, online or academy, then the changed difficulty setting will unfortunately override the earlier setting which was set before while starting a championship under my career. Even if we change it back to the original setting.

I tested this also and everytime if we use our own cars in Free Mode or Multiplayer, then it costs us seasons from our team members. So the only way to avoid this, is that we use loan cars in Free Mode or Multiplayer.

It seems that both is intented by the developers. Both bugs or features existed also in "Dirt Rally".
Could please someone from Codemasters officially confirm this, if these are bugs or intented features?

Hi all,
when I try to download stages from dirt4game.com/fr/your-stage web page, I've got an error message : Erreur lors de l'ajout de l'étape à "Mes spéciales". = Error while adding stage to my specials, something like that...
I'm on pc, windows 10 Pro last updates ok. I've tried on Edge, Chrome but I've always got same message.
May be I've missed something...

PC: Please fix the FFB. Is very weak and in some cars, like the R5, i don't feel it. Also the R5 cars "float" a lot. Thanks.
