it feels an awful lot like a really polished GT Legends or GTR2 with great content that you can play in VR.
To an extent...I guess?
until you realize all the track tech, day to night transition, weather and race features that GTR2 offers that Raceroom doesn't.

Regarding the DTM cars...looking forward to picking up the Audi once the mirrors are fixed if that is indeed an issue and running a single player season.

On driveability, not sure why it was brought up at all. Should have tried them first before reading the comments. :redface:
Exactly what i did...tried them after "true" release on test drive at RaceRoom Raceway before buying.

My attitude was like: "meh...another modern aero car, i'm not even that much into driving DTM, but it was okay fun i guess. Whatever, this will probably bore me big time, i will probably give it a pass this ti.......W-WHAT the actual f...this is awesome". :D

The AC DRM Revival cars are fairly easy to drive, compared to the R3E Gr.5 in the first 2-3 laps, tbh...after the 3 warmup laps (provided, that tyres are properly warmed up in R3E), they are comparable, though.
Hmm, had no issues with R3E Gr.5 at all, not even remotely challenging or interesting after DRM.
But DRM Revival individual cars driveability is all over the board, some are nice and easy, some are literally ice skating for the first lap or two, with DTM 2020 you just need not to mash the throttle when car is unbalanced, that's all.
I've tried Porsche 935 K2 3.0 DRM 77 from Revival pack today after DTM 2020, just to see how they compare. Hats off to whoever was brave enough to drive that skiddy beast IRL.

When have you last tested them? They received a (big) physics update not thaaat long ago (almost 4 months or so)...
Sounds pretty much as if you have tested them before that :O_o:

Right after their physics update, specifically wanted to see how it compares to AC.
But I have to admit that R3E is not something I invest a lot of time in, mostly just kicking tires from time to time as FFB feels a bit lethargic and not as intuitive as in Kunos titles to me, so it's possible I have missed something.
Will give it another try today.

Try comparing something like Zakspeed Capri and Silvia Turbo and you should notice quite some difference...

Small update and hotfix
Changelist:
  • DTM 2020 - Modified DRS activation limits regulation, following this formula:
    ([Expected amount of laps] / 2 ) x 3
    If the driver chooses to use DRS in a lap but does not use all 3 activations, the remaining activations will go to waste and be withdrawn from the total.

    The data display will show:
    [DRS available this lap] / [Maximum activations for the race]

    Here is an example scenario for a 60 laps race:
    --- Lap 2 ---
    3 / 90 // Activates DRS
    2 / 89
    ---- Lap 3 ---
    3 / 87 // Activates DRS
    2 / 86 // Activates DRS
    1 / 85
    --- Lap 4 ---
    3 / 84
    --- Lap 5 ---
    3 / 84 // Activates DRS
    2 / 83 // Activates DRS
    1 / 82 // Activates DRS
    0 / 81
    --- Lap 6 ---
    3 / 81
    etc.
  • AI - In DTM 2020, if the AI chooses to use DRS once in a lap, it will try and use all 3 activations in the same lap.
  • Audi RS 5 DTM 2020 - Fixed flipped image in side mirror.
  • Modified some in-game advertising banners and liveries in preparation for upcoming events.
  • Suzuka - Fixed a TV camera located above the bridge that was not properly triggering

Still driving on a sheet of ice, No bumps in road that I feel......not impressed. The suspension is not getting a workout like I feel In RF2 at Sonoma with the 911 R

Picked the Audi up with some left over vrp.... struggling to get a good feel out the ffb since the December build which is making it difficult to figure out this car.
Love DTM but not enjoying the car so far.
Sounds good....
 
Im liking the DTM 2020 more and more.....yes they can be challenging to drive. But with practise,and once you get a feel for them,they're pretty fun to drive. Just make sure to get heat in the tyres. Especially the first few laps can be tricky.

Did lots of back and forth with Zakspeed Capri between AC and R3E.
R3E is quite impressive but still less challenging and interesting to drive than DRM Revival counterpart, esp. before tires and brakes fully warm up.
R3E feels more like domesticated version, may it's more historically accurate, can't say anything on that.

I am DTM Fan and bought the BMW (nice sound!) and love the way it drives. No problem with oversteer coming out of corners if you gently push the gas pedal. Has a very good road feel and possibility to drive on the limit. Is it like real life? No idea, but I trust R3E has done everything to get there and I am happy they did. Please don't make it "easier"

Yeah I feel this (or rather don't feel it). Whilst the FF may be communicative when turning, it's certainly not immersive. There is a real lack of road feel, whether than is a problem in the FF or in the track models I don't know but I too find it very off putting.

It's horses for courses. Sometimes I like the road feel of ACC or AC, sometimes I like the pure and responsive feel of R3E. They're different flavours and I enjoy both depending on my mood.
