Anyone up for the Pro Tour? Looks like we need 8 at a time, only ever got 2 or 3 and no timer it just stays in the start screen, unless this area is dead already?

Yeah, it's dead. You can't play competitive or even look at leaderboards anymore. This game has no official support and this is what you should expect from future CM games.

This is vikram.R from India, I have recently made a purchase of Dirt 4 via steam and I'am having trouble launching the game. As soon as i start the game it gets me to the home page of Dirt 4 where it shows "Click start or Enter key " to start the game, but unfortunately I tried all the functions on my keyboard but that nothing helps me starting the game.

Hey Guys,

i have a RACE NET Service Error (not available) - is there a solution out there?

I am pretty new to Dirt 4, just installed it on a PC for my Kids.

But its not working, because of that Racenet Error...

 

Regards

Jack

Whether by accident or by design, my Exterior Cameras have been disabled, so now I only have the cockpit and dashboard views.  I'm currently at level 28 so I'm well into the game.  Did this happen automatically or did I click something by accident??

Thanks for the assist

Someone could certainly do with looking into this, like Grumpyoldman989 above me here, i opened a ticket but all i got was the usual stuff about checking internet and NAT and all the other stuff that has nothing to do with it. The problem is at Codies' end. The game is reduced in the current Xbox Ultimate sale so there's going to be at least a few new players around, and it needs to be fixed as it makes several achievements unobtainable, which is an absolute no-no

Exact same problem as previous two posters. Brought the game, and then to find one day it's unable to connect is a huge kick in the balls. Was really enjoying the daily and weekly challenges, in fact I've not played the game since.

I wonder if they'll make a statement about this or even fix it ahead of it joining EA Play next week, I imagine quite a few unhappy people who will pick up the game to find a big portion of the advertised content unavailable.....

As dentingboot rightly mentions in the post above, Dirt 4 and Dirt Rally are heading back on to Game Pass next week via EA Play, with the attendant rise in players that it will surely cause, so for them both to have a decent amount of the game not working is not exactly an ideal situation. I can't comment on Dirt Rally because i haven't played it, but a working RaceNet is required for eight Achievements/Trophies on Dirt 4, so this isn't a good look all round. If support for the game is ending since the EA takeover then very least that's needed is an official statement to clarify it, but ideally don't do that, just get RaceNet working again

Still nothing happening with an official announcement about the discontinuation of the RaceNet service on Xbox, if that's what's actually happened. It seems to still be working on PlayStation. When there's seven achievements which rely on RaceNet functionality then this is pretty shoddy stuff, especially for a game which is available on Game Pass via, lest we forget, Codemasters' parent company Electronic Arts' EA Play. Frankly, someone should be embarrassed by how this has played out but it clearly looks like no-one at either Codies or EA gives the slightest toss. Well, despite them clearly not being fussed about what i say, i think they're a ******* disgrace, they've cut a portion of what has been paid for in their game for no obvious reason to the outsider other than laziness, and then rubbed it in our faces by having it still working on Sony's platform. ******* appalling. If you care that little about the achievement hunters amongst the fans of your game that you can't even be bothered to put out a statement confirming the ending of RaceNet on Xbox platforms, you should really be ashamed of yourself. Absolute disgrace

Same thing happening to me. No online functionality whatsoever on Xbox 😞. Just get constant messages about not being able to connect to Racenet and to try again later!

Was looking forward to climbing up the leader boards, taking part in the daily, weekly, monthly community challenges.

Never occurred to me to do research before buying Dirt 4 last month, just assumed basic stuff like leader boards would work. If anything, I thought that the leader boards would be nicely populated by now seeing as the game has been out a while. Don't want to refund as I really like the game but without even being able compare my times against others from inside the game just feels like a fundamental part of the game is missing.

I asked Codemasters support when or if this will ever be fixed for Xbox but just got a generic response about checking their twitter feeds, checking for Xbox live issues, etc. Not really a useful response given that I mentioned that Playstation and Steam platforms have lots of community events listed on their own community events web page for Dirt 4 but the Xbox has no events. It's right there for anyone to see, just visit the following website and filter by Xbox under "advanced filters".

https://dirt4.dirtgame.com/community-events

I get that Dirt 4 is getting a little old now but it is still sold on the Xbox store with them advertising the features that clearly do not work:

Quote

 

• COMPETITIVE GAMING – Daily, weekly and month-long challenges against fellow players from around the world

• NEXT GENERATION OF RACENET – Live ladder, leagues and tournaments, cross-platform leaderboards, enhanced CREST telemetry system

 

Not really sure what is going on here or if it will ever get fixed.

Just saw BrassHande’s post about Racenet being back. Installed Dirt 4 again and Racenet is indeed working.😃

Thank you to whoever was responsible in Codemasters for getting Racenet back online for Dirt 4 on Xbox.👍

Dirt 4 is an awesome game.
