Morph teaches you DiRT Rally

Morph teaches you DiRT Rally

If you don't know it yet, no one can beat MorphBZH when it comes to driving games. Not only is he the best pilot in the team, he's also quite the handy man as he has managed to build his own handbrake to play DiRT Rally in the best possible conditions. The following video is the proof that he's not too bad behind a wheel. What do you think?

Amazing!! If you can please try it with an Oculus, the recent update made it buttery smooth and it's freaking amazing!

Wow, that was amazing to watch. I'm guessing he races in real life 2?

Not that I know of. He chases criminals though. :)

How did he make the handbreak?

I disassemble an old USB joypad (Thrustmaster Firestorm Digital 2) with 12 buttons.

For each button, I just solder 2 wires (ground & signal) on PCB. When you make wires contact together (with a screw), each button is on.

For this handbrake, one button was needed. It's not analog signal.
You can use a potentiometer like the thumbstick to make the handbrake analog.

This is the first version, I made it smaller :

The wheel is a DFGT.
For settings, these are defaults one. For now, I didn't manage them to get better FFB.

I only tried Seat Ibiza from the last pack. Default car settings were bad, use those recommended in the menu before each race. The feeling is now great.

No replay sorry, I pushed the wrong button :/ I won't forget next time to record it.
And for the last question ;) No race in real life (expensive dream), only karting when I can.

Thanks, Morph. Well done on making that.

You'd think there would be a much simpler solution by now with some 3rd party making these things to sell and just work out of the box. I suppose the lack of proper rally sims is responsible for that.

Nice driving, BTW. Having played this game, I know how difficult it can be.

Crazy driving skillz! Love the handbrake you made. For the first time I feel some developer absolutely nailed my country's landscape. It looks convincingly German! I'm gonna back this game as soon as this festival summer is over ;D
