[BUG] Dirt Rally: Online Events - Connection Failed - Racenet Service not available


Recommended Posts


When I try to get into online events (Career --> Online Events), I now always get this error when it tried to download the online event data. I last did the daily stages successfully on 8th August but the next day I started getting this error. I can't find any logs to indicate what the issue might be.  Every other game works fine and the rest of Dirt Rally seems to be functioning fine. I joined a league on the Dirt Rally website and then went into the game and could get the league information from Racenet.

What I've tried:
* uninstalling my anti-virus
* turning off Windows Firewall
* verifying integrity of game cache
* removing local savegame and hardware settings
* playing with the system time (as suggested in other threads)
* tried uninstalling and re-installing Dirt Rally now also, still no good.

Now all of a sudden I am able to get into the Online Events again.  Maybe because the monthly event clicked over?  Was my monthly event the issue, i.e. it was corrupted or something?
Same for me, "The Racenet service is not available".  It is really frustrating, cannot log in since last 2 months.
