DiRT 3 Complete Edition Patch 2-4-15

Recommended Posts

Hi all, just an update on the FFB issue. 

It's being worked on now and we hope to have a fix up as soon as possible. Realistically though I don' think it will be this week, (needs to be tested thoroughly before it goes live). We're aiming to have it resolved next week but I can't promise anything just yet. I'll keep you updated as the week goes on :)

Thanks a lot, I've managed to configure it so it's playable with a steeringwheel without disabling force feedback, but it doesn't feel like it should, looking forward to the patch :smiley: 

DiRT 3 CE now also shows up on my Steam profile properly, and I can compare my stats to other players, so that's been fixed as well. I still can't see it on my licenses and subscriptions page, but it works and that's what matters.

Thanks for the update! The game is pretty sweet to play on a pad, but I'm just hopeless without a wheel...
Some may argue that the fix would get tested extensively if you released it ASAP :)

Probably more testing as in making sure it stays a stable build, if something is wrong and the game crashes for keyboard users as well because of it, they're gonna get a shitload of complaints.
Some may argue this issue wouldn't have occured if they had tested it extensively before it was released.

I know I definitely would.

I seriously have no idea how a game company that specialises in producing driving games fails to check whether using the preferred peripheral works with one of their flagship products before releasing to the wild!

"It's just going through QA", Really? That was 2 months before release, and not once in that time someone thought to plug in a wheel? Or maybe they did, which is even worse, releasing a dysfunctional product knowingly, despite apparently been 'worked on' for a year.

It boggles the mind.

Its a shame, Codies games have so much potential, I want to see them succeed, but they're not doing themselves any favours.

So it's been 14 days since it was released...ANY UPDATE ABOUT IT? Sorry but I had this game in PS3 and bought it again to play in PC and I feel like I was stolen.

There will probably be an announcement on Steam. The patch should be arriving this week.

FFB update for you. 

Everything checks out with the patch so far, the QA team are just going to do some final extra testing with wheels that aren't officially supported (this is because DiRT 3 is an old game and users with newer wheels had reported the issue). 

Its mainly because DiRT 3's officially supported wheel list was just these

Logitech G25
Logitech G27
Logitech Formula Force EX
Thrustmaster T500 RS
Thrustmaster Ferrari 430
Thrustmaster Rally GT Force

But obviously all wheel users have been hit with the bug so we're doing some extra testing on all the ones that people have reported issues on to make sure it is fixed. The last thing we want to do is say its fixed when it's not for everybody.

I'm optimistic for the fix to be live by the end of the week and I'll keep you updated.

Its pretty much the end of the day at the end of the week Lee.  Any news?.


Lee is away today. He did tweet this morning that he would try find out if the patch would be ready today, but it's not looking to good now.

I could be completely wrong though! I am more often that not :)
