I've written this not once, not twice but three times now - a final update has been released for DiRT Rally 2.0... until the next one anyway.

Yup, everyone who thought the days of downloading a full 14gb + update for the sake of a sub 400mb change had been consigned into the memory banks of early dirt racing adventures, think again - a new update has been deployed for DiRT Rally 2.0 - adding support for Logitech Trueforce devices, and a bunch of new liveries - details of which can be found below:

14gb download for a dozen or so liveries and about 50mb of fixes. Masters of Code!

I'm ready for DR3. DR2 has got to the point where everyone has memorized the stages and I can't even BEGIN to keep up because I don't want to memorize the stages (accidentally or not) and ruin the magic that is rallying.

Not bitching, just ready for the next Codies rally game I'll probably pre-order whether I want to or not :)
 
No bug fixes? Where’s some news of DR3?


  • Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 - Resolved issue where engine audio file reverted to older iteration (previously used in Version 1.15).
That's a bug-fix.

But yeah..Like @Shannon Flynn said.. 14gb download for this.. is a bit.. well. Lets see what Codies.. I mean EA.. going to do with DR3 or WRC. Dirt Rally 1 was a true passion-project of Paul Coleman. I only see sad things for the future.

I won't be surprised to learn that "Daniel Elena" is now playing this final version and who knows, one day he'll go solo in rally driving^^
 
Dirt Rally 3.0 should maybe go back into the procedural stage creator thing. But do it right this time (with like 10x more tiles, and better synced co-driver calls). And adding VR shouldn't take a petition this time

And those damn tarmac physics.

If Codemasters can't make all surfaces work within the same physics engine, code 2 physics engines in the damn game then lol. Switch physics engine when car goes on tarmac :D Stupid, but better than yet another sub-par tarmac experience

That's how it feels now, anyway. Like someone switched the physics, (from logical to weird) when crossing into tarmac sections

That’s a choice, how you package the game files.

a. Small updates, bigger total install
b. Big updates, smaller total install

DR2 is pretty big to start with, they could repackage the game files, but that would increase the footprint even more - which is especially detrimental to console players with generally less storage space than PC.

Point being it is not ineptitude, but a choice between which outcome is the lesser evil.
