    Only did a couple of single stages so far to verify functionality with my AccuForce wheel and Heusinkveld pedals through Gimx. Works good but better device support is wanted. Driving feels okay and I think I will enjoy the game once I get fully into it.

    Edit: spelling.

    I feel the same. I only did a bit of driving to check everything working ok. I spent quite some time trying to get an unsupported arduino based handbrake I made working, which I did eventually and haven't had chance to go back to it since.

    I kinda like WRC 7. Might not be a rally simulator but it's not like we should expect it to be, considering that they want to make something mainstream like what Codemasters does with the F1 series. As a rally game, it's actually pretty good: the stages are long, detailed and resemble their original locations. That's enough for me. It's not the kind of game that I would set up my wheel to play, but it's actually perfect with a controller and plenty of beer. They are on the right way. Can't wait for WRC 8.

    Too bad they neglect the FOV/seat adjustment options. Basic sim features. Maybe in WRC8, which I'm actually looking forward to. I prefer the physics to those of Dirt 4 and actually Dirt Rally too, as a whole. Because here every surface is playable, in Dirt Rally I can only enjoy stages which don't have tarmac parts

    If WRC8 would have

    - Improved car sounds
    - Improved sim features such as FOV, seat adjustment per car, true triple screen
    - Improved FFB
    - Improved replays
    - VR

    It could be a really great rally game. WRC7 already is

    Yes. Whole 'nother experience when you get your FOV correct and your POV 'just so'.

    So still no fix for the random loss of FFB then !
    It's a mystery why they don't fix the obvious flaws first !!!!

    in the next patch I hope:

    clutch use
    replay with selected user views
    fov and seat adjustment
    force feedback improve
    new cars
    possibility to remove the steering wheel from inside view
    eliminate auto restoration in sim mode, after serious road exit
    balance the effect of speed in all the views

    thank you

    It's pretty obvious that the devs aren't monitoring this site so I wouldn't be too optimistic about any of those wishes of yours.

    Just tried it !

    Seems more like a placebo update that no one would have noticed unless they had changed a 3 to a 4 !

    O yeah ! - The random, loss of FFB is still there !

    A good game that could have been really awesome if they had fixed the obvious flaws !

    I kind of like this game. Yeah it's not Assetto Corsa or RRE3 but it fills a void. I was going t buy DiRT 4 but I got this instead. I have owned WRC2,3,4 and now 7.

    Don't expect any changes beyond cosmetic for this game in the next patch, if there even will be a next patch (I was surprised this one actually came).

    And don't hold your breath for seat/FOV adjustments for WRC8 either. They've made their opinion on these fairly clear in the past.
