Analyze and enjoy all your DiRT Rally stage times recorded by this simple tool


Recommended Posts

It's always been bugging me that I can only see my personal best times after completing a stage, and only for the current class and track.

dirt-rally-time-recorder is based on Slocan's work from the Early Access phase, which has since been outdated due to Codemasters' updates to DiRT Rally. Kudos to his efforts which allowed me to continue and include the new cars and tracks released since 2015.

This tool automatically tracks your stage times in the background, without need to copy them manually from the stage results in-game. It's based on the telemetry DR puts out via UDP while in an event.

Visit https://github.com/soong-construction/dirt-rally-time-recorder for set up and usage instruction, and for the complete source code.

All data resides on your machine, no uploads. This is open source, ready for contribution.
Please try it out, and share your thoughts and ideas. I'll gladly help with any problems. Some shortcomings of this tool are listed on GitHub.

The following screenshots are based on the CSV output of dirt-rally-time-recorder and might inspire your own evaluations.

I recently released version 2.0.0 of dirt-rally-time-recorder - now with support for DiRT Rally 2.0!

You can

- let it track all of your stage times, saving you manual bookkeeping

- browse or export your stage times (e.g. to Excel) by a mouse-click

- download and unzip it as a ready-to-use .exe, no installation required

Feel free to try it out, and also comment on whether you find it useful: https://github.com/soong-construction/dirt-rally-time-recorder#goal

Please make sure to follow the setup instructions: https://github.com/soong-construction/dirt-rally-time-recorder#first-time-set-up

I'm currently working on support for the Season contents, which is to be released soon.

This is excellent, but for those of us on PS4 (and consloe in general), it can’t be accessed. 🙁 @PJTierney, why can’t this sort of statistics be a part of the game itself??

It is just insane that it’s not available in game.

I’m more shocked that its been a problem for so long. Which implies there’s no intention to sort it out.

Maybe it’s one of those issues with cross platform comparison that they’re not allowed to do it.

Now that DiRT Rally 2.0 is basically complete, I wanted to note that dirt-rally-time-recorder supports all the seasons up to the Flat Out Pack.

The new v2.7.0 gives the tool a more user friendly feel with cleaner output, provides more options and is more stable. It includes optional heuristics that solve some of the remaining car ambiguities.

Anyone interested can check out the changelog and downloads here: https://github.com/soong-construction/dirt-rally-time-recorder/releases

Feedback is still very welcome!

To my knowledge PS4 does not put out UDP telemetry for either DiRT Rally 2.0 or the original DiRT Rally. If there was some way to enable it, I don't see why it shouldn't work with dirt-rally-time-recorder.
