    I turn my wheel and the car barely acknowledges the turn on the screen. I have to rotate the wheel almost all the way around to get around a 1 or 2 turn. Rallycross is impossible with this and rally is frustrating.
    I’m using a G29 on a PS4. I can’t find anything in settings that will fix this for me (not helped by no descriptions of settings in the options menu).
    If anyone has any tips for setting up a G29 on a PS4, would be greatly appreciated.

    After spending three hours with the game, i have to say, i love the music. I know this might not be the game you care about music... but damn. That music after you finished a stage is simply wonderful. Also, i would like to point out how great this game looks. I played the first game on PS4, this one in 4K on PC and it looks beautiful. Didnt expect this.

    Heads-up: On Steam multiple people report loss of progress or save due to mismatching saves between racenet and local saves.

    Is it possible to buy the game, jump right in it and start practising rallycross without having to be connected to racenet?

    What is the content of season 2? Some of you who have the Deluxe Edition must know by now.

    I know that the game came out recently and this question would be garbage... but for thoose who bought this 2.0 and also played 1.0, could tell me if there is a big change between both games? I mean in terms of physics, graphics, amount of tracks and cars, etc... I have dirt 1.0, and play with g29 wheel.

    Well this has turned into a bit of a mess hasn’t it?

    Racenet up and down faster than a hooker’s knickers.

    People getting their careers reset due discrepancies between online and offline saves.

    The majority of people really very very not happy about the need to be permanently online for a single player career mode. Which muppet working for the Codies thought this was a good idea?

    Botched FFB apparently across all wheels and platforms. Seriously, was this not beta tested?

    Badly played, Codemasters. Really very badly played.

    I took the day off to play Dirt Rally 2.0 - I ended up playing WRC7 instead

    What a major cluster thing. I will go out and buy it today, but will I be able to play it. So much for 4 days early....

    Bad to read this. I´m expecting to buy the game in a few weeks... but seems to continue playing dirt rally 1.0.

    It's nice and calming after you've stressed yourself out on a stage in Argentina :D

    Like @PJTierney already said I think that 80 sensitivity is the honey spot for controller racers. :) But eventually, it's always personal preference.
    If you want to see all settings, here's my tutorial:

    You might want to play the free play championship instead. This is what i did. Dont need Racenet for that.

    It appears that has been fixed and they got their progress back. YMMV.

    You're absolutely right, but why would I when I've had WRC7 languishing on my PS4 for the better part of a year, and discovered that it actually plays better with a wheel than DR2 does at the moment.

    Just a quick note on the always online racenet issue. Hopefully they will get their server worked out and it will become a non-issue. While I don't like it, I play other games that are "always online" and rarely have a problem

    The reality is that the game has been on the pirate sites for a couple days now and it hadn't even released yet. So I appreciate their desire to curb that wherever possible. While the pirates will still be able to play the game, it gives me some satisfaction that the thieves will not be able to enjoy the entire game that I paid 70 bucks for.

    I am totally with you on the anti piracy. I am installing the game as I type on the ps4. Is piracy also a thing on the ps4? Never heard of it yet.

    Also, when I buy legit copies of movies , I always get the message that I should not pirate it! I bought the damn thing!!!! I have to sit through 1 minute of garbage form the Dutch government while the folks who watch the pirated version can watch straight away . That makes me soooo mad.

    We might have to wait for the Digital Foundry analysis to know for sure.

    Pretty sure the whole first production line is “day one“. Some retailers will sell “day one“ editions many months from now. Its a rather common thing.

    Thanks for the reply, that makes sense.

    btw I feel I should post a disclaimed, I'm not so tight that I'm worried about saving 90 pence, just trying to find a decent price on a site with decent reviews.

    Loving the game so far, but the 997/2 tail & brake lights trip up so many videogame artists:lol:

    For those playing this already, I’d like to hear feedback about the surface degradation.

    Amazon waited until today to tell me that my deluxe pre order has been delayed for 2-4 weeks. Yay. Cancelled and I'll be going in to game tomorrow.

    I posted this in the Dirt Rally 2.0 Wheel Settings thread. This method helped me, and at least another member, but it's not a silver bullet. Quoted for reference.

    That sounds like a calibration issue. Have you tried calibrating the wheel in the menu or unplugging the wheel and then replugging it in and recalibrating? The issue people are having is regarding FFB not lack of response so definitely sounds like calibration.
