DiRT Rally 2.0 - Input on Inputs!

Controls remain the same from DR and D4 with the exception of the view in the service area that you correctly found to be wasd-qe.

So with that in mind, button 17 is the equivalent of enter or mouse 1 - 15 is back - 16 is i think F1 and 18 is F2.  D-Pad navigates.

Yep it works (17) in the Menu, but doesn't work yet at the splash screen - you have to press keyboard to step over 😞

Your feedback is always valued and in this particular scenario it will help the team not only with the future of DiRT Rally 2.0 but also in the development and implementation of other titles that are being planned for the future, like GRID. 👍

 

...and it's thanks to your feedback that several things have been implemented in GRID, making wheel setup a lot easier 🙂

On PC, thanks to community feedback we have improved support for the majority of devices to be added/configured via the in-game menus without the need to hand-edit XML files. This includes selecting the device type, forcing force feedback on/off, multi-binding different axis to the same actions and calibrating.

 

We’ve also made further improvements to this system [across all platforms], including:

• Simplified menu layout – consolidating information into one screen (Device Management)
• Displaying all devices recognised or disconnected, so you can detect faults/issues
• Ability to edit deadzone saturation for dynamic axis, such as using an analog handbrake
• Improved calibration description and information

Did this update (1.9) remove the self centering  wheel force on menus for anybody else or did this just happen to me?  It is weird feeling and I preferred it the old way.

No, that option is only on crash reset, the setting you're talking about belongs to the wheel software.

The wheel software has been giving me problems lately.    I was hoping this wasn't another problem associated with that.

Hi Fellas. As a newb to 2.0 I began playing the last couple months. Xbox one x+Controller.  I use a recommended controller setup with a deadzone of only 5 for steering and the game has been excellent. I tested this with input reporting and no matter what I always hit 0%. No issues.

Fast forward to the latest update and my controller no longer returns to 0%. I thought my controller might have worn or been dropped by I purchased a brand new one and am getting the same results. I checked this out because I could feel the steering staying on a tiny bit. 

Was something changed with the sensitivity in the update last month?

Could this be an issue with the controller reporting mechanism?

Does anyone else have this issue? Should I return my new controller? 

How is the elite, any more accurate?

 

Advice please! I must continue to enjoy this great game as if I'm a professional rally driver. Thank you.

I just bought this game the other day. I loved DR1. It was excellent. 

I'm very disappointed with the ffb. It feels very unrealistic to me, like it's taken a huge step backwards. 

There's no road/surface feel. Very odd. 

I'm using a CSL Elite on the PS4. 

Has anyone got any settings I can try to improve things please?

I am having an issue with multi controller config, my wheel base is simxperience accuforce, fanatec csr elite pedals, fanatec seq/man 7 shifter, arduino handbrake and sim racing machine fanatec hub adaptor (seen as Fanatec wheel base),

All the controllers are seen and work when checked, but they are not all working together.

The accuforce wheel automayically sets to default wheel and works, great, the pedals work once calibrated, OK, but when I calibrate the wheel the pedals no longer work (but still seen in menu) unless re-calibrated, no shifter works, not on the wheel or the fanatec seq shifter even though when checked in the menu they work just fine.

Now my question is why have they changed the controller interface so dramatically from DR1, which by the way JUST BLOODY WORKED and still does? 

There have been comments that they had to modify DR2 due to people using multiple controllers, but I had no issue's and found it very straight forward on DR1 against the new and improved (NOT IMO)

I have read the controller release PDF, but surely if you have had to release such a document does that not ring the odd alarm bell?

How do I Use mouse and keyboard, It is not clearly explained, I have a mouse that i would like to use for gearing and steering (with mouse wheel) and side buttons for gearing while also using keyboard for other car inputs ?

Hello everyone 🙂 

Back in May the DiRT team put together an Input settings guide for DiRT Rally 2.0.

If you haven't seen it yet you can download the PDF here.

 

Now that you've all had some time to get your wheels and devices set up the team would like some input on the input 😉 

Feel free to leave your thoughts in this thread, and here's a few things to get you started:

  • How are you getting on with the input configuration options in-game? 
  • Are they easy to find, easy to understand?
  • Is it easy to understand in-game what each of the settings mean and do?
  • Is there anything in this regard you think the team could do better in the future?
  • How are you finding the in-game tools and configuration options?
  • How do you feel about how the game handles external configuration files?
  • What are your thoughts on how the game handles multiple input devices, and switching between them?
  • If any of the devices you used were un-official, did you configure your devices via the in-game menus or by editing the XML?
  • If you edited the XML did you know that the majority of the settings you can change in the XML are available in-game, before editing the XML?

 

Please note that for this particular thread the team is looking for feedback on input settings/experiences only, and not force-feedback.

If you're on console please state that too as it may be handy for the team as well.

 

Your feedback is always valued and in this particular scenario it will help the team not only with the future of DiRT Rally 2.0 but also in the development and implementation of other titles that are being planned for the future, like GRID. 👍

I just installed Dirt Rally 2.0 and I noticed my PS4 controller doesn't plug and play the way F1 2020 does. The input mapping has no sensitivity to the trigger buttons it's either fully on or fully off... Hoping in the future Dirt Rally games will plug and play with Playstation controllers. F1 2020 has forcefeedback, pressure sensitive triggers etc all working instantly with no interference from the user 😞

how do I use keyboard to control game when racing, I have a custom wheel on my T300 base, and have only few buttons left for reach, how do I remap this to use keyboard in game when I crash and need to change the tyre?  I posted in other topic as well, hopefully I get some help here. appreciate the help in advance!

1 request, but it’s of the strongest possible kind:

Please remove the forced steering assist when using a controller! Or make it adjustable.

Currently when any car gains speed, the steering sensitivity gets waaay slower, and the range of the steering is eventually limited to a ridiculous tiny fraction of the full movement. This is with the original PS4 controller on PS4 Pro, and to my understanding it is present with all controllers on all platforms.

I get why the feature exists for beginner drivers, but it is clearly not properly tested through. A feature like this MUST be either much much smaller, removable, or even better adjustable for a racing game to be taken seriously as a controller driven game.

All powerful RWD cars are unusable on any track due to this feature. On many tracks I have to slow way down even with the most agile 4WD cars because the front tires turn so slow when driving fast. I’m forced to setup all cars to extreme settings to get them to turn at speed. Correcting a skid is getting really difficult even with 4WD cars past 100km/h. Above 150km/h it gets near impossible as the tires barely turn at all anymore.

 

To be honest, I’d be shouting the game’s title on a mountain top every week if I could exchange this one issue with all the mentioned ones through these four pages. Due to back issues I’m not able to sit comfortably in a position that a steering wheel and pedals would require, so I’m tied to the darn controller. But the frustration over this one feature is getting larger than the joy of even playing the game.

When you get to a good level with controller this issue become super frustrating, forcing you to get used to it and slow-down in certains sections to reduce the amount of steering lock/assistance this thing does (which increase with speed), or just try to never have to countersteer too much at high speeds, which is NOT FUN nor realistic nor COMPETITIVE. You have to buy a wheel for being competitive. On technical sections controllers are very good to use, but when it comes to high speeds, it is garbage. I don't think it helps begginers too. The game will be much more simple with better controls, when I was beggining, this thing was already annoying me. I call this artificial difficulty. This is not a bad mechanic, but let us settle it as we want. Actually I think this is intentional for penalizing controllers, since we can do a lot of movements very fast.
