    I know, it's so annoying that they didn't continue. Everytime I briefly go back to SLRE I'm reminded of how good it is. Whoever did the physics did an outstanding job, I don't care about the graphics and sound, they are good enough for me.

    Just think what they could have done with this title if they continued. It's almost as if after witnessing DR's sound and graphics they just gave up. A real shame.

    With all the revenue coming in from their yearly bike games now would be a great time for a return to SLRE.

    PS Another thing I thought was strange was the choice of the awful voice over for the Loeb videos. The guy speaks perfect English ! :( I would much rather hear him speak.

    I have the French version and Loeb's voice is his original one. No voice-overs here :) To bad Elena doesn't do the pace notes....

    Meanwhile...have the the first 5 on hard difficulty. San Remo being really easy even on this level :eek: A bit unbalanced

    I think it's the best graphics of the game ?

    I played that challenge with the Xsara WRC I agree pretty easy on hard. It's so much easier to drive compared to the Xsara kit car...

    Are you playing all the challenges ?

    I will play some more too, in amongst all the other games Im swamped with !

    PS I can remember from before getting into a bit of a trance on the San Remo stages, so many calls in quick succession, it's pretty demanding and intense but amazing when you win a stage without crashing at all. Love it :)

    Quick reply since I need to go to work ...

    I've done 10 so far with Hafren being the most challenging so far.

    Sam Remo is just wow if as you say , get through undamaged and have a flow going :bowdown:

    @MrCrynox Yes, I am doing all the challenges except for the rallycross parts. Hafren was the most complicated so far because I wanted it to be tidy and with not too many offtrack errors. Takes around +6min to get around and some corners have wrong pace notes so yes it was a challenge.... ;)

    Édit....

    Muscle memory really helps. Did the "25 Seconds" challenge and it was a walk in the park :lol: Under 6 minutes with a few errors.

    Having difficulties putting this down....again...

    @MrCrynox I've completed all challenges early afternoon and they aren't that hard to beat on difficult. The only odd ones are the ones were you need to be the fastest in every sector and the longer stages need mostly tidy driving. Realistic difficulty must be doable but I won't go through them for a 4th time :lol:

    The last challenge, where you run the official Pikes Peak race and need to beat Loeb 9:08 time is a joke. They should have set the official record here since that is actually a bit more challenging.

    Enjoyed "King of Monte Carlo" intensively! The DS3 runs great and the stage has the real Monte-vibe :tup:

    I will play the all challenges again when I next get some time off, mid week probably. I originally completed everything before on my PS4 but have since bought SLRE again for Xbox as it was so cheap. So I've hardly done anything in the game, gives me incentive to play but I remember how big this game is.. I remember enjoying PP so looking forward to that.

    I'm glad your enjoying it..again :)

    Oddly enough I picked SLRE back up for PC, and despite it being an utter pain to get working with my rig I'm also having an utter blast working through it again.

    Enough that I currently have a 'five years on' review video processing right now.

    @doblocruiser I finished replaying all the challenges, I had a lot of fun getting reacquainted with these stages.

    Standout for me was any of Sweden, Mexico, UK. I love the feeling in this game on all these surfaces, its a pleasure to drive.
    Like yourself I really enjoyed the King of Monte Carlo & particularly Sweet Lamb 2 in the C4. Of all the Citroen`s my favorite is the Xsara, its such an under represented car in other games, you rarely get to see it.

    And Pikes Peak was great fun in the 208 T16. So fast yet easy to drive, yeah the stage time to beat was pretty pathetic.

    I spent an evening after picking up my last career save driving the BMW 2002 in Monte & Sweden, great fun.

    I love watching the replays, they really show the physics at work, I love watching the weight transfer & inertia, (especielly in Wales - it really shows it off), to me it looks exactly like the real thing. Despite the age of this title, DR & the WRC series, (both of which I really like too), I think that really SLRE is still the best rally game, its just amazing.

    I think I`m going to continue playing every now & then, thanks for reigniting my interest in the game... :cheers: :tup:

    @MrCrynox You have been fast with redoing those challenges. We are pretty lucky with this game since all important Citroëns are in there, thanks to Loeb and MilesStone's excellent licensing team. I love the little Saxo VTS 1600 too as well as the Xsara and C4. A bit less fan of the DS3 but still a decent looking car.

    Saxooooo


    The replays look indeed fantastic ! I just wish they could be converted to todays standard, seen where RIDE4 is atm, that would be really awesome. However i don't think MileStone will proceed SLR but somewhere in my head, I simply keep hoping.

    Your welcome for the return to SLR and most likely this thread will resurface somewhere in the future again ;) For now I am going to take something up Pikes Peak and see where I can get it on the leaderboards :D

    Édit....nowhere since there are no class leaderboards :lol:

    Is there any interest in here to run a small little challenge ?

    Well I thought of a simply Time Trial challenge against Loeb's Ghost to see how close one can get with an underpowered car.

    Sounds good, ie not too much to commit to. We did a little championship last year but in the end there was only 3 of us playing.. :( Hopefully others can commit to this idea ??

    Yes, no championship and just a fun little challenge with a duration of 2 weeks

    Asking for a friend:
    He has a Thrustmaster TS-XW and he can't get the pedals to run on PC, while wheel works. Pedals attached to wheelbase. They are like buttons and game doesn't allow him to rebind them as axis.
    Any ideas?

    I noticed in the Xbox store that the base game (not including DLC) is something silly like £2.50 in the sale that is running till ?Tuesday.

    If you dont have it already or only have it on Playstation (like me), grab it quick!
