    Codemasters keeps surprising the DiRT Rally community as the studios today released the Pikes Peak Pack, which besides the iconic hillclimb track also comes with a bunch of extra features and updates.

    With the introduction of both the full tarmac and mixed surface courses also comes the new hillclimb champioship mode, three new vehicles and a long list of bug fixes and new features for this Steam Early Access game.

    I don't give a toss what they're putting in the game till I can actually get on it. I'm still £20 out of pocket with nothing to show for it. For a company as large as CodeMasters I find that disgraceful

  3. At work and can't test anything, but did they implement proper FFB yet or are we still waiting for that "feature"?

    I do like the cheeky update comments though.

    Not sure what the problem is you are having but I can get on the game perfectly fine without issues. Have you created a thread for your problem with specific info so people can help resolving your issues?

  5. Seems to be coming along nicely. If they can keep to their release time line there should be quite a bit of content ready for Christmas. Hope they get round to fixing the 'floaty' feeling of the cars when using a wheel though.

    Fantastic downloading it now.
    This is how it should be done:

    I also saw on the dev note about this it says next stop Germany... 45k Panzerplatte stage would be nice :)

  9. You've come onto a forum and ranted away about a problem that obviously only you have got without any explanation. Go away.

    Won't happen, the stages are as long as they can be according to Codies.

    According to a dev on Steam it's coming between now and the Germany update. Then I will have to get on board.

    It's not just me though... Lots of people can't get on because of this "Error 41". And CM still don't know what causes it

  14. Was hoping they gave us proper audio sliders. Someone said the engine levels were better, but still loud as heck for me. Just way too loud to comfortably play. Played a little when I first got it, but since then haven't touched it. Here's to hoping for the next update so I can play again.

    There was a thread earlier on Steam where justbiglee mentioned they're looking for it to be out of EA by the end of the year, but if they have to go a little longer they will.

    Here are some of the cars on the walls of the devs office. I can see my favorite the Maxi Megane. Loads in the pipeline hopefully.

    I wonder if that is a dream-list, or actual content. I cannot help but thing the first. Then they'll make whatever they are able to obtain the rights to!
