Has the mandatory joker lap not been implemended in Rally Cross?
I just did a 5 lap race at Lidden Hill, forgot to take the joker, but still won.
I can't find it in any settings. Any ideas please?

Hi Ian, thanks for the reply. It doesn't seem to be working. I created a custom offline event and it let me win without taking the joker.

This is the first report we've had of that. Which track please and I assume you had AI?

OK just ran it and it penalised me for not taking the joker. I'll get the guys to look at it though.

How strange. It definitely let me win!

Have you setup the rally through the rally preset (quick race) that enforces certain rules?

There is one track (think it was dirt fish?) where the joker lap actually saves you time, and you can take it every lap without panalty if set up without the rally preset.

I've also seen an online race where the winner didn't take the joker lap and wasn't penalized.

@IanBell there are more issues unfortunately. I've had multiple experiences where some of the AI will not joker. Most recently this happened at knockhill in a 3 lap race with a full field.

This situation rings a bell as something that was reported at WMD towards the end of testing.

But it might just be my head ringing and I made it up.;)

I've reported in WMD 2, joker lap is only working in the preset. If you want to run longer or shorter races and therefore define your own race, it's not working. This means you're not being penalised for not taking it, and you're also not being penalised for taking it twice (which is an advantage at Dirtfish)

Ahh, interesting. I went default. We'll look at it guys.

I've never encountered any issues, but obviously they should be easy fixes to implement in the next updates!

send me a pm if you wish to help me moderate a facebook group with weekly races etc...
