Please tell me how sponsor banners affect your gameplay experience...

Nobody complained about Geneva Car show was sponsored in spring, now they're pushing for a new title (which you can buy or not), that's normal.

Where is the "disgusting" side of this?

This is just dump straight in your face advertising.

BUY OUR NEW GAME, NOOOOOOOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I won't buy anything anymore from Codemasters, before this doesn't stop.
I'm not your cashcow, Codemasters, stop trying to force me.

Wouldn't have bought this game anyway, would have shown the wrong sign to the Publisher.
Project CARS 3 and DiRT 5 are trash in my view.
No respect to developers, who just try to jump on the FH4-bandwagon.

This is really annoying overall this yellow PC3 banners.

So the update 1.15 didn't bring us any improvements or bug fixes regarding the patch notes but lots of yellow banners.
Better would be to bring real sponsors in the game coupled with a new track or car.

Actually I think Project Cars 3 is doing a disservice to Codemasters as a company. Many people on the internet claim that the game is bad because it was pushed to be an arcade racer by Codies. Which is not true, because as far as I know this decision was made before Slightly Mad Studios was acquired by Codemasters.

Maybe Codies should issue a public statement about it, so that people stop blaming them for what Ian Bell did to the Project Cars fans. 

What a mess...

Slightly mad now is from cm? Didnt know if thats the case sim or arcade I'll buy it. Was going to skip after the experience with the others, not for beeing arcade but they are a disaster of a game. But maybe now they'll have some quality

Errrrmmmmm... you may want to research this decision 😂

Announcements like the one shown here, and the banners on-track, are all updated server-side, and are only viewable on Steam (I believe). No patch needed for those.

 

The 1.15 update had multiple things, all of which were detailed in the Patch Notes. I'll leave you find those for yourself in the usual place 🙂 

Good to know and all but you are missing something imprtant here. How about removing this excessive Project Cars 3 advertising from DR2.0? Since it can be updated server-side, it could be done like right now.

Not my call to make, sorry.

I'm sure it'll be replaced soon with whatever's planned next. Those banners change relatively often.

I really didnt assume it's your call. Don't talk to me like I'm 5 years old.

"soon" is kind of subjective. Meanwhile we have to suffer this constant intrusive in-game advertising that makes DR2.0 look really silly with every banner being nothing but Project Cars 3. Not very nice

This kind of publisher advertisements is immersion breaking, I've had dailys with black/yellow PC3 adverts from start to end. Having the usual mixed racing parts/equipment related adverts is perfectly fine, as it complements rally stage visuals, for as much as peripheral adds start to be a little off. Even the stay at home adverts that were mixed at some point were understandable (for as much as virtual crowds seemed oblivious to them), but having a sim relate to other games in the scenario so forcefully just devalues it. I hope CM takes some lesson from this.

  • The title was changed to Project CARS 3 banners in DiRT Rally 2.0

Seriously this is ridiculous. Just finished a stage in Wales (Bidno Moorland Reverse), and every single ad was for PC3. I expected the co-driver to tell me to buy PC3.

This also occurs in offline mode.

Granted, you can't play the career in offline mode so that's a moot point.

lmao if only people got this mad about ads on the internet, or on TV, or at the movies, or in bus stops, or on the billboards at the side of the highway, 

we could have a better world!

it's capitalism. deal with it.

how exactly do you propose that we "deal with it"?

the players who dislike this have no options here, other than to voice frustrations in a forum.

Mind you, people do get this upset about advertising on the internet. Adblockers are prevalent. Pihole exists to combat advertising on other platforms (i.e devices with a more closed source approach). These exist because people are actually able to do something.

The ads here are baked into the game. Players who don't want them thrown in their faces constantly have no option but to complain online.

I'd rather you guys kept it to immersive banners rather than actual advertising regardless. Why do I have to see the latest Codies game or some stupid twitter hashtag anyway? You shouldn't be bombarding your paying customers with ads and slogans. I want to forget the real world and race a rally car not drive through an advertising platform.

What does it do that PCARS 2 doesn't, once you tweaked the assists in 2 to make it arcadey?

The Rivals and Scheduled Events are new, as well as the Career. Gamepad handling is also overhauled.

I never played the first 2 games, and with no Forza out this year Project CARS 3 is a decent enough alternative for me.

I mainly play Multiplayer and a 3 year-old game is usually dead (Forza Motorsport 7 isn't filling lobbies like it used to either).

I think its absolutely wrong to blatantly advert a game like Pcars 3 in a game that is 10 times better like DR2.. i was an original backer of pcars 1 and 2..and loved every bit of it (besides bugs). But the mess they made from Pcars3 absolutely disgusts me to be honest.. They truly left and ignored their complete loyal fanbase and there is everything wrong with that! Really to see these banners in DR2 is making me a bit mad.. no offense to anything about codemasters but this is just wrong!! id rather see "fallguys" adverts... and probably its only because Pcars3 is selling very bad.. otherwise we would have seen F1 banners in DR2 right?

Project Cars 2 has very poor gamepad control compared to Assetto Corsa. This is objectively measurable and provable. Please, Codemasters, don't let the botchers who are responsible for this mess mess around with Dirt Rally.

I am surprised that the gamepad handling in PC3 is supposed to be so good now.

I'm not sure that is completely objective, for sure I really struggle to get a pad working well with AC or ACC (and neither supports the d-pad either). PC2 I was able to get working well without a problem, although this was a huge upgrade on PC1 which I personally felt was borderline unplayable.

 

I'm not too worried though, DR2 has better pad inputs than both of those IMO.

I only own and (tried) to play PC1 with a pad on my xbox. No chance. I tried many controller settings found in the internet.
Never had a satisfying experience.

Didn't bought PC2, I don't give 2nd chances, if something is THIS bad.
PC3 looks like a terrible version of PC2, the controls might be better now, but the rest not.
Will never ever buy a product again wich involved the Slightly Mad guys.

What if they make one that looks good in all the areas that are important to you...?

No trust, no faith.
I played Need for Speed: Shift, Shift 2: Unleashed, Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends and Project CARS from them.
While all of these had good gameplay, nice graphics and cool cars, the driving itself was always garbage with a controller.
Especially Project CARS.

At first I thought about giving them ANOTHER chance when PC2 released, but then I heared quite much negative feedback from the community regarding controls again. So I closed the files for me.
Too bad, the potencial is/was huge, but they got enough chances in my opinion.

PC3 moves directly into the wrong direction, so it was out of question even thinking about it.

I could have said the same for my personal tastes with Codemasters' studio after CMR2 and Toca World Touring Cars - they went further and further away from reproducing motorsport accurately and I had zero interest in anything else they did until Dirt Rally - but I'd never say "I'll never buy a product from them again".

Just did a bit of research when I saw the footage of Dirt Rally, because I was very cynical.  People in companies change, the products evolve with them. I've no interest in PC3 but I think the people who make the game are talented folks and if put on the right project they could create something I'd want to play. I'll be very cynical at whatever they produce next, but I'll judge it on its merit.

I'm being a bit facetious there, sorry, I know you basically mean the same thing as I'm describing above.

Like you seem to know already, it is more a speech of frustration, really.
I know they can do it, but they disappointed me just too much in the past.

I of course will likely have them on my radar, like every other racing game developer out there (except PC only developers, because I don't play on PC at all).
Codemasters, Turn 10, Playground Games (wich I hate with a passion at the moment), Slightly Mad Studios, Milestone, Kylotonn, Polyphony Digital, Ivory Tower, Eden Games and even Ghost Games and Criterion Games, who did not made a good NfS-Game in 10+ years are at least on my radar.

I'm always looking after good racing games, and they don't have to be always simulation based.
Some sort of really good Burnout or Split/Second would be also cool.

🤔?

 

There seems to be some Forza drama recently but the game itself is well-polished/supported in my opinion.

IMO you're missing the best part of Project CARS2; the classic version of Le Mans with the 917K and 512S. Admittedly, not everyone was brought up on the Steve McQueen Le Mans movie...

I have the Ultimate Edition of the game, but it came out the same month as Forza Motorsport 7 and GT Sport, so it got pushed to the sidelines and never picked up. I only stopped playing Forza Motorsport 7 last month.
