2 player events and other ideas

Recommended Posts

A few ideas that i have and would love to see be implemented in the game.

1. A two player possibility in custom events. Like the old Colin McRae games I would love a possibility to do an two or more player offline events when you have friends over. You choose which locations you want to run and the players choose which car they want to have and then run after each other on the same controller/wheel and a separate offline leatherboard (not Racenet) during the event. If someone crashes out they can continue the event with a time penalty or something like that. WRC 7 had something like that but with ghostcar and it wasn't good but Dirt Rally 1 and 2 hasn't anything like that.

2. A Swedish co-driver voice. Loved a mod back at Colin McRae 1 or 2 where a Swedish voice was recored by someone from Värmland!

3. Possibility to run with extra lights mounted in daylight. Love the look av them.

4. The ability to choose between RHD and LHD in cockpit view, everything feels wrong for me to drive a RHD a two of my favourite cars in the game, Ford Escort MKII and Opel Ascona B (as I own in real life) are that and "impossible" for me to use.

5. Volvo 240 and Volvo 940 added as cars. See pictures of very very popular rallycars in Scandinavia.7_volvo_240_rally_car.thumb.jpg.c2e68c1fc95ae9f860dd8d9e77392f60.jpg12_voc_volvo_940.thumb.jpg.59e2c0c70c9a3537216c1b8139f6b4d5.jpg

Great idea. But the lights should work instead what we get now which is total unusable at daylights conditions
WRC 8 does better

I really want this too! I have found a way to do it, though it isn't perfect. This method will allow players to take turns in each stage of a full event/championship, but also allow each player to have their own individual damage carried over to their next stage. It will also allow each player to see their own individual overall times in the championship, so you can compare times throughout, and at the end, to determine the winner. 

1. In "Custom", select "Create Championship". Make a custom event/championship that you would like to play with your friend and SAVE it.

2. Select "Start Championship". Player 1 now starts playing. After he finishes the first stage, select "Quit to Main Menu" instead of continuing. 

3. Now select "Create a new championship" again, and load the event/championship that you saved in step 1 (this one will be for player 2). Select "Start Championship" and now player 2 will do the first stage. As before, select "Quit to Main Menu" after finishing the first stage.

4. You will now see "2 Championships Suspended" in the RESUME section. One for player 1, and one for player 2. Unfortunately you can't name these, but the "Last Played" section will let you know whose is whose. Now you can just take turns to do the stages in your own individual championship (just make sure to always select quit after you finish a stage, rather than continue)

The only real downside is that you are not truly in the same championship, so adding things like track deformation would not be fair. Apart from that, it does the job. Hope it works out fun for you!
