Who will be picking this up? Not a day one for me, at least not until Codemasters give more information on how many countries will feature the rally stages. Rally cross looks pretty good and plenty of post launch support seems to be planned.

I can't wait to get my hands on this game and try the Citroen DS 21 and the Datsun 240Z. For those who have a Oculus Rift, Codies announced that it's going to implement Rift support this summer.

Who will be picking this up? Not a day one for me, at least not until Codemasters give more information on how many countries will feature the rally stages. Rally cross looks pretty good and plenty of post launch support seems to be planned.

Literally all that info is available. 6 countries on launch, all completely new - Argentina, Poland, USA, Spain, New Zealand, Australia. Each will have a similar number of stages as DR1, although Argentina's are fairly short the other ones are all made up of a couple of 10-16km stages split up and run in both directions.

8 RX locations.

3 more rallies will be added as DLC about two months after launch. Expect these to be repeats of locations from the first game, with new textures, models and the new stage degredation stuff. We'll find out for sure tomorrow. Expect DLC2 to be RX only (which is quite a consumer-friendly way to go about it IMO).

I'm excited by this one, so if any news has passed you by ask away.

Yeah, but I also read that it has mediocre force feedback. I guess like previous titles, as I heard Jimmers say he had to use 400 degrees of rotation. Hinting that basically they still haven't overhauled their poor controller input mechanics. Not having the game lock in the proper amount of wheel lock is just so 2000s in my opinion.
Let alone the weird way Codemasters their FFB system scales as you change said wheel lock. Then having to adjust linearity to make it somewhat normal to drive, which makes it all go really wonky.

At least that is my experience in general with Codemasters games.

The game itself looks absolutely cracking though. I would love to play it to death, but I am just the type that is anal about his FFB. So to say it nicely... I think I will tread cautiously.

Of all the grey market game key sites they are the safest and the only one I would recommend. They leverage regional pricing and reselling to achieve most of their great deals.

The game is also currently on a 20% preorder discount on Green Man Gaming which is a legit store front itself.

Downloaded the PS4 Digital Deluxe edition last night. I have one huge issue with it so far - with my G29, I feel no surface detail at all, only wheel weight and self aligning torque. Every surface from gravel to dirt to tarmac feels exactly the same. A look at the forums over at codemasters confirms I'm not the only one experiencing this. Hopefully it gets patched sometime soon.

Is it a G29 issue or is it affecting all wheels?

I had no idea the Duluxe edition came out first i had a rally session planned tonight but my standard edition did not show up. Dam you codies!

From what I've read, it's affecting all kinds of wheels, across different platforms. A lucky few are somehow unaffected.

On X1X out of the box with a controller the game plays and feels absolutely great, the vibration feedback is some of the best in the genre. Dirt 4 already rocked here IMO, even beating the supposedly almighty god of controller-feel being Forza.

Graphics are a bit all over the place. Sometimes it looks absolutely stunning but in the dark or heavy rain it can look quite crap to be honest.

That's breaking the rules and the organizers are to blame, the 4D 5D 3G 4G 5G rubbish doesn't even matter at this point.
No roll-cage, no windshield, no seat belt, no helmet, no HANS-device... nothing to insure the safety of the driver. Thus she was not insured whilst driving, is about to receive a fine and the organizers are even to expect a heftier fine from the safety boards for letting it happen.

Not sure why but in the dark games this gen have really struggled.

Regarding FFB it seems it was great in the beta but messed up for the early edition duluxe people. Lets hope it is fixed for the official launch of the game on tuesday.

Rally cross is great fun again. Kinda sucked in DR1, was way better but a bit too easy in D4, now itís perfect, and thatís just judging from the starter Super 1600. Great feel with a controller throwing the car left and right.

Anyway, thatís judging from just 1 race in Barcelona in the wet. Why just 1 race you might ask. Because of this absolutely retarded always OFFLINE Racenet crap!!!

Graphics is bugged in terms of lighting though (running 4k no AA on High preset), and the FFB is mediocre compared to modern standards. Still, this is the first one that's good again in a long while in my opinion.

Also I think the lighting issue might be HDR related in my case.


Edit:
Just did a Google but that seems more like a FFB fix related to settings of certain wheels. ffb_force isn't a parameter used with clubsport wheels it seems.

My issue with FFB is more the mediocre feedback it gives from the tyre model, or maybe it's the tyre model itself.

Not sure about this FFB yet I do know I calibrate my wheel at 1080 then just change it by wheel for the cars I sure it's like dirt rally was. Don't no why two settings are there but can't do anything lol just FFB problems lol.

And not too be picking on anybody but when it comes to racing games that are more focused on similation I wish they leave the controllers out of it. Pcars come out they always said it's meant to be played with wheel. Just more BS that has too be put in a game.... And then maybe the wheel company's would come out with wheels that is built for disabled people etc. Look at Kevin Swindell Twitter he was injured in a Sprint car he posted his hand controls for his wheel for iracing he has four paddle shifters it can be done.

I'll get this in a month or two when the DLC has been released. At the moment I feel like we're getting half a game. Monte Carlo, Sweden and Germany, all coming (at a price!) over the next few weeks, then supposedly GB, Finland and Greece the month after. Game looks awesome - but ****ing expensive.

Christiaan van Beilen
27-02-2019, 20:16
Any good ffb settings for a CSW2.5 ?

No, since there is no good FFB to begin with. I think I have self-aligning torque at 100, wheel friction at 30, tyre friction 100, suspension 80, collision 50, self centering force 60. Where the self centering force basically acts to counterbalance the self-aligning torque, cause I felt my wheel was simply jerking left and right depending on the road without any resistance... which you would have if you tyrs would sink into a dirt road or would grip on tarmac.


Anyway... I can't find any good settings with this mediocre FFB system. I feel there is at least something fundamental missing from the equation somehow, and after that I am still missing a lot of road surface feedback... and I don't mean a simple rumble. It's at least nowhere near as refined as the FFB in pCARS 2, and I am sure there's lots of improvement to be had there too. Comparing the two at the moment is like comparing lemons with pears.

With these I could feel a little of what the suspension was doing. The surface detail is still muted, but I had some good fun. Australia was a blast... Poland was also, but being that the gravel there is a lot smoother, the wheel felt less active.

I would leave wheel friction 0- 10 this is a damper setting most wheels are damped already so I would not go higher than ten imo. I have collision like ten or so no need too be that high just blow the wheel out your hand. Right now I'm running 80, 5,35still working on that one suspension 35 there is a sweet spot for each class of car. Calibrated wheel too 1080 then change on wheel 720 for most cars. Google dirt rally wheel rotation settings and there is a list of cars that are best run 540 720 etc. I found that a while ago and it works good I use t300.

Ok this is what I'm running feels good

Self aligning 85

Wheel friction 0

Tire friction 2

Suspension 6

Collision 6

Soft lock 55

Center force off

It's weird, I think this game is a big improvement in physics over DR1 and I am enjoying it more than any title since PC2 came out. So FFB is a bit limp, but it's not a massive problem imo, and will be tweaked I'm sure, but there is so much bitching on steam and the codies forum, just like there was with PC2. It's almost like people never want to see the good in something and get some kind of satisfaction from finding things to get affronted about.

We get these great games and all people can do is moan about it. There's me moaning about people moaning again :confused:

I'm pretty sure the current FFB is not the final 'product'. They've already acknowledged that they're looking into it. Plus, I keep seeing settings in the FFB menu other people post that I don't have on Xbox and some are still greyed out, so this shows again that game developers don't have the time to launch a final product and have to cope with all the moaning and swearing after release. Not sure if my count is 100% accurate but there are already a zillion threads about the bad FFB.

Actually that was indeed lovely. It was actually the first thing I did in DR2... I saw the car leave ahead of me and I tried to see if I can get closer to it. I didn't just get close I was way ahead but I didn't see anyone. It was such a let down. :(

Yep, that's what I was talking about. For some reason on Xbox we're missing some options compared to PS4. The only plausible explanation to me is 'time', as I said earlier. Studios have not enough development time. Sadly it appears that's just how the business works at the moment. They'll be patching it in the very near future.

I have thought on the FFB. One I have tried many different settings yesterday pretty much got the same feel for the most part . I think what needs too be done is turn the amps up on the tire friction suspension and what ever there doing with tire slip. Because there where times I could feel tire slip but you go to low on self aligning it all goes away that's my thoughts done playing too update.

Contact Fanatec support. It probably means a new load ell, since the wires are factory attached to the replacement part. Or at least on the early CSPs it was a drop in part like that.

Let me guess... sometime when Olijke was still a little man he brought mayhem to the school and utilized the soldering iron from school to try to burn the building down by trying to light fire with it. :p

Haha something like that.. no worse. In the early days of my school period I once turned the the soldering iron of the guy next to me upside down. I thought that was a funny joke but the guy who actually grabbed it thought otherwise as the teacher as well. Poor guy the soldering iron melted a large part of his hand. Took him several months to recover.. I never touched a soldering iron again.:sorrow:

Well, it was a rather brainless move. As you realized after.
I am not a Saint or religious but I always took to heart that you shouldn't do unto others what you don't want them to do unto you. Or in Dutch... "wat gij niet wilt dat U geschied, doet dat ook een ander niet".
That line stopped me from doing foolish stuff like that, at least unto others. I might have light up a hedge by playing with fire in a park. Luckily I could kill the fire, but it was a conifer hedge... so it accumulated all the old dry leaves in the middle. It all went poof a bit quicker than anticipated. lol

Anyway, you should try soldering again. It is hot but it is a great skill to have as a man. You wouldn't know the things I fixed already. I replaced a relais in my dad's subwoofer amp so that it doesn't cut out anymore, I replaced save game batteries in snes card ridges, and more of those little things. :)

Thanks.. I’m very peaceful myself. What I did back in that time was a reckless deed but I was the “pispaal” and one day I took revenge for all the times they bullying me.

Anyway, I managed to fix my loadcell wire. I cut off the bad part and added a RJ12 connector. It is just long enough to make it to the part where it must be connected to. So the pedal does work again.. miesa happy.

You too huh. I was like that too, mostly because I had medical issues though due to which I stood out.

LOL, you can always lengthen it. Even if you have to use a "kroonsteentje". ;)
