I've both, and while, as has been said, it can be a paint get WRC 9 running well on PC, it's worth the effort.Need to give this another try. I fell in love with WRC9 and neglected this. Anyone tried both?
Not having the official content might be a blessing, since it forced Codemasters to actually put interesting cars in the game.DR 2.0 in my opinion is leagues ahead of WRC7. Only thing is it doesn’t have official WRC content. But it has McRae’s 98 Subaru so who cares!
Very true but I wasn’t a particular fan of the GT stuff. It would have been nice to have some of the older WRC spec stuff, like SEAT Cordoba, Toyota Corolla, Octavia etc etc. I want too much thoughNot having the official content might be a blessing, since it forced Codemasters to actually put interesting cars in the game.
I would love to see a game focused on classic rally, with stuff from 70's and 80's.Very true but I wasn’t a particular fan of the GT stuff. It would have been nice to have some of the older WRC spec stuff, like SEAT Cordoba, Toyota Corolla, Octavia etc etc. I want too much though
Wasn’t it 14gb or something?
I believe the performance tweaks required the re-installation of some locations - could be wrong, don't quote me on that.
Yeah 14 GB for litterally nothing, pointless update and now I have to wait like 2-3 days to download it to be able to play again
So, basically, Codemasters pack and encrypt their files. Their file-system is, well, it's not built by many small parts. If you look at the "game" folder in DR2.0 you have 5 files, game.dat, game.nefs, game_1, game_2 and game_2_1.dat. They are between 110MB and 9.5GB.It was more than 14 GB. I looked at it in Codemasters and it put what is said here, minor corrections. Surprising! I suppose they must have reinstalled a part of the package, as stated above, but it had to be a large part ...
Already did on PS4 last year. It was a part of a PS+ offer and the game was made available for free for about a month, and apparently got loads of downloads, lol.Cool. That means knowing Codemaster's MO they will soon give it away for free before their license ends, and knowing how proffitable Dirt 1 and Dirt 2 was they are sure to work on a third version.
I have both on PS4 and can have my bias flip and flop between the two titles. One day it will be WRC9 then the next DR2.0I have both. WRC 9 is obviously gorgeous and handles nicely, especially on tarmac but there’s just something about DR2 that I prefer.
I am using the Rift S and the Quest 2, the Quest 2 has a better resolution,but both are doing fine. DR 2 in VR is really great fun,such a realistic experience.I'm looking for a VR set, just curious which one you're using right now?

No, the size is solely due to how the gamefiles are packaged. Nothing more, nothing lessThe size of update might be caused by re-exporting of all track objects with different LODs for example, you know redoing that at this stage takes a lot of time, and at this stage of title they could just leave it and move on.
When did they add loose surface physics?with excellent loose surface physics
By 'loose surface physics' I just mean off road - gravel/snow/mud surfaces.When did they add loose surface physics?
My understanding was they more or less altered grip levels based on your starting position in a rally
As far as I know, only iracing and the madness engine had loose surface physics.
Fun game and wished I used it more for when I need a rally fix, but I just couldn't get a good connection feel for the tarmac on my TM TX
I agree Escort, Lancia 037 or Mg Metro is a great experience, enjoy more on NZ or Scotland, not very interesting for me Wrc5 or new wrc, more exciting classic rally cars, still i think more content for this DR2 could be great, adding new cars or rallies like Portugal or México, and cars like Talbot Solara, Nissan Bluebird or Toyota corollaJust my 2p to add to the above comments, but if you're wondering if Dirt Rally 2.0 is worth trying I'd say it absolutely is.
Is it perfect? No. And there was some controversy in its lifespan to do with the business model and which content was selected for DLC (which personally I don't agree with, but hey), but now the full game is available in a single package you'll get over 200km of the best modelled rally stages you'll find anywhere with excellent loose surface physics (tarmac is fun but a bit iffy, don't expect AC) and a great car selection that each feel and sound unique. If you've waited until now you'll get superb value from it. The RWD content, both the 70s Escort/131 and modern RGT classes particularly excel IMO.
I'm really hopefully with what they can do with another title before their WRC adventure starts - at this point, I'm more worried that the WRC licence will mean no more great historic/GT cars and 'lesser known' locations (the US stages, for example, are superb).
As long as the third installment finally has triple screen support I'm in. They seem to have bought triple support to dirt 5 so i was hopeful this update for DR2.0 was going to support it. I guess they do need to leave a reason for me to buy DR3.0.Cool. That means knowing Codemaster's MO they will soon give it away for free before their license ends, and knowing how proffitable Dirt 1 and Dirt 2 was they are sure to work on a third version.
