    So they removed the drive up to the marshal when completing the stage? I thought it was left in from D4.

    You can turn it off. Also in time trial mode it ends the run as you cross the line.

    It's still present, however not in Time Trial.

    There's also an assist to help with auto-braking for the marshal however I haven't seen any potential penalty for missing the stopping point. Maybe the assist is to help people not crash and damage their car after a Stage is over.

    I know this is nitpicking but are CM aware that the sun isn't visible in real life when it's raining or overcast? (most of the time)

    This has to be the weirdest glitch I've encountered :scared: (happened on 2 occasions so far, the other one affected an AI car)


    On the One X, the game looks fantastic and runs at 60fps for the most part, but there are some instances of screen tearing, blurry pre-race sequences and pop-in issues. It doesn't look like it was ready for release it is somewhat hampering my enjoyment of the game. :indiff:

    I had the same “spinning tire forcefield” happen to me in rallycross as well (XB1X)

    There are also several spots in rally stages where the co-driver audio shifts to the front and gets very loud before going back to normal. And the 205 GTI had an engine sound glitch when I test-drove it. Caused static that required me to shut down my audio receiver and switch back on.

    Turn on the assists. For Traction Control, I wouldn't recommend using the highest setting as corner exit speeds suffer a lot.

    I took the Mini also to Noorinbee, Australia. What a joy (and challenge...) 3:40 and top 4 now. #1 time is a 3:28 :eek: No idea where and how to find 12 seconds yet

    3.28, that’s faster than some of the R5 times :D

    RaceNet connectivity is becoming quite an annoyance. My internet connection is fine, but I still get prompts from time to time about failing to connect to the servers. What's really frustrating is how the prompt appeared during the weekly challenge and after pressing retry a number of times, I decided to go back to the menu and reload the event. What I didn't know is that going to the menu makes you forfeit the :censored:ing stage! :ouch:

    On the bright side, I still secured a time in the Tier 2 bracket, and I'm the sort of person who finishes a stage with no headlights working. :lol: Everyone who is in Tier 4 is part of "Rage Quit" gang so if you finish the Community Weekly, you're guaranteed 170,000 credits in a few days.

    I'm so happy so far that I didn't pre-order.

    I pre-ordered the simple Day One edition. I have a good feeling that what is happening now is going to be even worse come Tuesday.

    But we gotta make sure that hackers don't fill the leaderboards tho.

    Guys, I wonder if it is actually racenet related? I've been playing Dirt4 during Dirt2.0 launch and I've expérienced zero issues with racenet.

    That doesn't really indicate anything. There are many possibilities what went wrong, but that is more a debate for some sysop forum ;)

    I've been pretty forgiving of the racenet issues and the dlc/season pass stuff. I even pre-ordered the deluxe version for the cars and to support CM, but the second day I own the game, before it is even released, it is telling me that I need to "buy" a car in order to participate in the daily AI challenge? That pisses me off a little bit tbh.

    Edit: Meh, just part of the game I guess. I would have hoped that Codies would have set up the 1st few days of events with cars people already owned, but it is what it is.

    It really is amazing how high you can climb on the weekly challenge leaderboards just by finishing every stage in one piece. I did the historic one and by the time I finished stage 7 I was in the 300's! :lol:

    (Yes, I know a big part of that is due to early access and server issues, but even in Dirt 4 you could get a decent placement just by actually finishing all the stages)

    Holy crap, I liked it with the controller, then I hooked up my wheel this afternoon. Just a few tweaks and BOOM, so much better even. :bowdown:

    Must be some sort of bug? Can you make a video?

    It’s not a bug. Lots of people posting the same. It’s just how the games lighting is.

    Can be very difficult to see. Some section of Poland in particular.

    Should be an easy fix I would think. And CM seem to be making the right noises about sorting out issues. If they can sort the ffb and the other little issues then this could be THE rally game. I was running TT's in the '95 Impreza last night and it was just an awesome experience.

    Maybe these 4 days of early access could be a trial run to see how racenet is having?

    When lots of people posting this and mention it as a problem yes then it is a bug. But probably an easy one too fix.

    From what I’ve seen the graphics are oversaturated and contrasting. It’s a bit much.

    After doing the H2 daily challenge today, I fully understand the complaints about the game being too dark at times



    Everything looks ok in rear view mirror though, I suppose I should have driven that part of the stage in reverse :lol:
