DiRT Rally and Pikes Peak

DiRT Rally and Pikes Peak

DiRT Rally has been out for a few weeks now and the developers recently added some content with the addition of the inonic Pikes Peak. It wasn't an easy task to bring you back some quality footage and it took us numerous tries and quite a good amount of sweat, but here it is!
Note: We used the Logitech Driving Force GT wheel with a modified FFB config file and a DIY handbrake. Automatic gears, ABS 3/5, TCS and ESP both OFF.

Exactly as Korn says. Most of the European stages have all tarmac routes, especially in France.

This game is amazing, btw. I've yet to try the update, but I gave it a couple of goes with a controller. You really need a wheel for this game. It's easily the best rally sim I've played to date, and the game is still only in an alpha state. What I love about it is if you come off at certain bends, your rally is over. However, I'd like it to be even more unforgiving. You can still hit a tree at 40mph, for example, and still go on. However, do that on a night stage, regardless of what speed you hit something at, and your rally can effectively be over for the fact that once your lights go out at the front, it's almost impossible to finish the stage because you can't see the road. It just goes to show, that when you defy modern trends, good things happen. Codemasters at their best again.

Pikes Peak stage is all tarmac since 2012. However, the old version is available in the game.

Who the fuck said it did?

Rally doesn't = only tarmac either, so is the game all tarmac or not...

Why would you even think that after

A. Know what the DiRT series is and has had in it previously, and
B. Only watching this one video?

If you saw gameplay of the witcher 3 killing a griffon would you assume it was the only enemy in the entire game?

Jesus, Korn it's a question. If you can't answer it or don't understand it, shut the fuck up. It's really not that difficult to comprehend.

Is the game all tarmac, or not?

I know your internet-mentality wants to make it seem like the question underlines a more deep troll-like ideology, but it doesn't. I have nothing against DiRT, I also know nothing about this title, and I'm a huge fan of rally games (that includes WRC).

So, if you can't answer the question, shut up and let someone who can.

I know your internet-mentality wants to make it seem like the question underlines a more deep troll-like ideology, but it doesn't. I have nothing against DiRT, I also know nothing about this title, and I'm a hure fan of rally games (that includes WRC).

So, if you can't answer the question, shut up and let someone who can.
Of course it fucking isn't, you idiot

There you go, answered :)

Fine, don't trust me that a rally game has all the standard rally locations and surfaces. Why would a rally game have those things? You know what, you're right, it's tarmac only, its one of those niché tarmac only rally experiences that are so popular right now. Lol

Okay. First, you say Rally doesn't mean off road, implying that that is what I thought it meant, also implying that it is tarmac. Now you're implying that I'm saying it's all tarmac, when I asked if it was all tarmac, and you're supporting it being off-road.
You really have no idea what is going on, do you?

I'd ask if English was your native language, but I don't want to talk to you anymore, and I don't want to read what you have to say... about anything.

Two seconds to search Youtube videos or Google on the game would tell you more about the game, instead of instantly just trying to bash it for some odd reason. Plus it's been featured on GS a few times recently. It's also called 'Dirt' for a reason. Common sense, really.

Now, this title isn't to be confused, or even related, to the previous games since they ditched the Mcrae name. It's a small team inside CM working on this. There's no Americanised bullshit here. Not Guykana, or whatever the fuck that shit is. It's pure 100% adrenaline fuelled rally. Just you Vs the narrow road, off or otherwise, in adverse conditions. The way it should be.

Mr.White in his first post here shares some experience with the controller.

It's not bad, but you definitely need to experience it with a wheel, and that's me saying that without having played it with one. I couldn't help but wish I had one when I was playing, and it's seriously making me contemplate getting a G27 just for this game. The cars have a real sense of proper weight to them, and it just feels wrong to be trying to drive them with a thumb stick, but that's not to say it handles bad. Reports say that the FFB isn't the greatest on it yet, but they should work on that.

And yes, the sound in the game is one of the most impressive aspects. You can tell when your tires are spinning out just by listening to the gravel kick up inside the rim.

Thanks, it has potential for sure.
