the problem on DR 2.0

- tarmac problem  , the tarmac need more inertia physics  because the slide and drift is bad and the car  stop very fast after for  slide and drift )

                             tarmac info because  need more info for bump and jump and road broken by the time 

                              tyre strategie is very bad , soft and medium should degrade more faster 

                            wet tyre better than medium tyre on dry tarmac is not normal

                            wet tyre  more gripy on wet road than dry road is not normal too

-pace note on dirt rally  2.0 is bad 

-dirt rally 2.0 not have dynamyc weather  ( maybe  is coming for next dirt  because is on f1 games )

You forgot to mention Racenet, which is literally crippling the majority of DR 2.0s main design. 

For a company whose networth is ridiculously high, Racenet is down multiple times a week.

The engine noise of the cars more or less all sound the same.
Anyone who claims otherwise has never played it


 

there are differences between cars. The fact is that's how they sound in real life, once compared to real life videos.

It's like saying all touring cars sound the same, or all supercar v8 sound the same when in fact there are subltle differences between manufacturers.

he engine sound is not the only weak point The damage model is virtually non-existent, although I've set it to realistic, the car has only tiny little scratches even in a big crash The rear and brake lights are wrong for many cars or not even available.

Although WRC 8 is worse than Dirt Rally we should be happy that there are two good Rally Games and I like to play WRC 8 from time to time

Has anyone else noticed that in the on board view Camera in wrc 8 the steering wheel hardly moves?? It’s really really annoying as I drive with the view most of the time in dirt rally 2.0. I have reported it to wrc 8 Facebook page along with other bugs I’ve come across and have had no response from them, I have hardly played the game since it came out, wrc 8 is not even in the same level as dirt rally 2.0 as we should count ourselves very lucky that we have this forum to post our views, issues and problem with dirt rally. I don’t expect to hear anything from Big Ben anytime soon.

That's because it's optimized for gamepad users (consoles); the steering ratio of the animation is small.

I don't see how it's a PC vs consoles. It's just a fact that console players mostly play on gamepads, and the game (WRC8) is optimized for that, because that is the largest audience that will play it. Dirt Rally 2.0 and Dirt 4 display the wheel as it should be. It's important to note that this is only a visual issue, and will not impact how your racing wheel performs in the game.

Tried wrc8, washed out graphics, twitchy controls, 30fps, stil robot co driver, the most demanding crew ever, same engine sound from all the cars. Yeah a real winner

No VR in Wrc 8. My interest stops here. No VR No buy 🙂

No. it doesn't. DR2 has steering rotation **** up. You have to match steering wheel rotation using saturation. For R5, saturation has to be 100%, for Focus'01 or Subaru95 - 75%. All depends on expected rotation range of selected car. And unfortunately it's not only visual issue in this case: it really affects steering sensitivity.

That sounds like an issue in the simulation itself, rather than the wheel animation.

if a bug arises in dirt 2.0, we report it and we know it’s going to get looked at and or fixed, with wrc 8 iam not so sure, so far there has only been one patch for the PS4, Maybe they will address the issues in time, I don’t think there is any way of reporting problems like we have here with dirt rally 2.0, that’s way this forum is excellent!

It's only assumption. PJ already proved several times that some reports were never checked.
There is no serious workflow of processing reported issues. IN result almost any report is left without feedback. In addition, in case of problems with fundamental functionality, CM not only haven't delivered a fix, but stopped to respond at all. I don't know situation with WRC, maybe it has less major issues so they don't need to communicate interactively. But IMO CM doesn't treat us like serious customers. I admit, it's way better comparing to SMS, at least in an attitude during communication. But since the forum is rather community one more than support one, I cannot feel it to be CM provided service.
