This is on sale right now, 75% off. Game of the Year Edition under $20 CAD, not bad.

Thanks for the link! Might buy the goty edition now.
I've bought the base game when it came out, thought I'd grab a season pass later on...
Sadly all sales only ever reduced the base game and no single dlcs or the upgrade pack.

Now the goty edition is pretty cheap but I'm still annoyed by the fact that I'm gonna pay for the base game again.

Never gonna buy any base games from codies again, always wait for the full package, argh.
 
Sad to listen it, i think still could be great dlc with cars like Ferrari 308 Gtb, Renault 11 turbo, Citröen Visa Chronos, Nissan Bluebird......etc i'll paid very happy for more dlc for Dirt 2.0, best rally game i've ever played, better than Richard Burns Rally
 
I never thought i will say this but i like wrc9 much more than dirt2.0 at least you can feel what car is doing on wrc9, but on dirt2.0 it is still ffb some kind of strange. Dirt 1 i liked by the way...

I'm not very experienced in either but so far I tend to agree with you. I'm really enjoying the stages in WRC9 although the Scottish stages in DR2.0 do hold a special place in my heart.:)
 
So in other words...they'll never fix VR to be nothing more than a slideshow.
Good to know, thanks.
Not sure what you are talking about. DR2 is a lot less resource hungry than other current racing games in VR. The early builds had some issues with rain on the windscreen, inpenetrable fog /snow in the sweden stages and microstuttering because of a very stupid usb polling implementation, but all that is fixed and I see no major issues with VR. Well maybe that we still can't name our setups in VR and the decision to not let us save the replays, it would be so much easier to record in flatpanel mode.

I've run Dirt Rally at 120 fps and can play it with all settings MAXED at 90 fps, so it's quite a bit better than a slide show.

ACC is a much harder load for VR. Lucky to run that at 90fps. Many only run it at 80 fps.
Curious: How does rain look in your game? For me it is unbearable in VR, big droplets i cant see through. Its more like snow and really ugly. Wirhout VR it looks splendid as it should be

Nice to see an update, tho admittingly I never got into this title due to the ffb. As someone who's driven several types off off-road vehicles on trails and fire roads I just never found the ffb to informative or believable.

Hopefully Codies will utilize the madness engine for Dirt 3 with it's live track dynamic weather and loose surface physics which I feel is an absolute must for a rally game.

I've not found it to be an issue.

My experience with rain in VR was pretty bad too.
Tried an RX race and the side windows looked like I was driving through a carwash just sitting at the starting grid

Just jumped in to do some testing with the Reverb. Did Codies not manage to fit mouse support in VR into that compact 14gb patch?

Tells you all you need to know, really.

I've got a good graphic card and high settings, too.

Mine looks similar to this, though:

Without VR its fine. Couldnt find a fix yet and it does seem to be a known problem, but not everyone has it. It ruins the game a bit for me.

I specifically mapped a 4 way joystick for arrow keys a couple momentary 3 way switches for menu navigation and an Enter, Cancel and ESC button on a button box so I could play without a keyboard in VR.

But I agree that mouse navigation is MUCH better and DR 2.0 is the only title that I use those controls for.


Also I've NEVER run Dirt Rally 2.0 in anything but VR so I have no comparison for how rain looks.

Are the AI problems regarding RX solved? I mean, they’re pretty slow on track but when you see the other groups’ results they got alien laptimes
 
About to pull the trigger in this game I think. I like DR1 a lot except for asphalt driving. Seen some discussion on the FFB in DR2. How is it with T300?
 
I picked this up last night (game of the year edition with all content) for £11.21! (Steam sale)
Bargain of the century and it’s awesome in VR
