Walter Röhrl is the stuff of legend and what is event more amazing is that all of this was tested in real cars, flat out with little in the way of protection. No simulators to practice on, or additional training techniques to rewire his mind. To drive at his level, everything has to form as an instinctive reaction, so add changing feet on the brake to the mix and the level of practice increases exponentially.
This all makes the potential of Group B so much more, especially with the obviously complexity of the stages.17/10/2018 at 12:44 pm in reply to: Williams employs a good driver shocker #44999
Absolutely, Bottas has taken a backward step this year, in particular his woeful performance at the Hungarian GP sticks in mind, a race where arguably he should have been black flagged for multiple race incidents.
It seems like his persona has changed, he’s trying to be more aggressive but that simply results in contact. He’s lost his composure and speed, is that pressure? Is it the team favouring Lewis? Who knows? Whatever the case, he’ll be send tumbling into the mid pack and then he’ll have to decide if he wants to remain as an also-ran or move to another series.17/10/2018 at 11:34 am in reply to: F1 Esports Thread #44976

So question: Do Group B cars again have a handbrake on all realism settings? Have they improved the differential simulation?
(if you look at the differential simulation in Richard Burns Rally, even in the tuning menu, it’s obviously much more complex than what was featured in DiRT Rally).
It’s probably too nerdy to ask this. But I just felt like bringing this up.
That’s an excellent question and I’ve added it to the OP. I confess I had no idea about this handbrake issue, will certainly make the Group B cars more interesting to drive. It seems like some cars may have had a handbrake but diff settings in the cars made the use of it unworkable in some cases depending on how the car was set-up. I’ll be sure to ask the developer the question.15/10/2018 at 1:09 pm in reply to: Dirt Rally 2.0 Thread #44798
I have to say, Argentina looks like it’ll cause a number of headaches – look at how little room you’ve got to play with! – https://www.teamvvv.com/news/dirt-rally-2-0s-argentina-stage-looks-nightmarishly-difficult/
Yep, so narrow, its going to be really really difficult. I also found it impossible to see in the shadows so I hope you can turn your headlights on.13/10/2018 at 11:56 am in reply to: Williams employs a good driver shocker #44755
I think Williams would go for a Ocon – Bottas swap, but with Bottas now being a race winner his price might be a little too steep.
Time out is never good for any F1 driver, Ocon really needs to have a seat especially with Norris and Russell on the grid.12/10/2018 at 4:38 pm in reply to: Williams employs a good driver shocker #44743
But Bottas’ one-year contract at Mercedes hangs over Ocon’s head. And a team might not want to gamble on a driver who’s long term availability is in doubt, when they know they can get a driver they can keep.
Yeah, its been unofficially confirmed that Williams wanted a long term option of at least two years, Ocon would only commit to one with his hopes resting on getting into Mercedes in 2020. That’s a risky move if Russell performs well. Lewis might retire or move in 2021 but in F1 terms that’s a lifetime away.12/10/2018 at 12:12 am in reply to: F1 Esports Thread #44709
I love the idea and I really enjoy watching racing games as an eSport. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see the event, because it was on Facebook. Apparently it was broadcast on TV in the UK, but I don’t live in the UK!
They need to think a bit more internationally (Facebook is quickly evaporating in non-English speaking parts of the world).
Wouldn’t it be a good idea to rebroadcast the stream on F1.com? At least then we know there is a centralised place you can go, regardless of where you are from.
This is a comment echoed on Twitter today, lots of people mentioning a similar barrier to seeing the races. Also just as many people complaining that F1 Esports should have its own page and website rather than being mixed with the motorsport. This will be a contentious issue as Esports expand.08/10/2018 at 11:07 am in reply to: Forza Horizon 4 Team? #44506
Sounds like a plan Earl!04/10/2018 at 10:41 pm in reply to: Dirt Rally 2.0 Thread #44383
Thanks Matt, Dirt Rally is always challenging and it always looks easier than it really is if you do it relatively cleanly. This stage was smoother but the driving was more technical with it being a FWD car and it was quite long, all becomes a battle of concentration in the latter stages.
No specifics on graphics yet, I’m expecting a dynamic resolution but we’ll wait and see. Frame rate is the core goal here and they already look to be making great progress with 3 months of development to polish everything and fix as many bugs as possible.
We’ll have a team chat up next week going into more detail. Shame to see so much negativity on the YouTube comments, VR aside, people seem to be looking for faults rather than appreciating the progress made.02/10/2018 at 10:05 am in reply to: Hello all Wraith's in the house lol #44135
Welcome to the site Tom and great to see you’ve been a long term follower on the journey, as it were.
That era of Rally was so special, indeed it was great right up tillt he late 90’s then just lost something along the way. A bit like BTCC which was huge in the early 90’s and then went through a lull in the 00’s now back again.
So what racing games are you most looking forward to?02/10/2018 at 9:55 am in reply to: Dirt Rally 2.0 Thread #44133
We’ve not had confirmation either way, but I’m sure the developers will look to include if they can.01/10/2018 at 3:02 pm in reply to: Dirt Rally 2.0 Thread #44082
This game will have original stages, not those generated as they were in Dirt 4. But the game will include some assets from Dirt 4 in detailing the stages.
No multiplayer details yet but we’ll ask down the line.30/09/2018 at 5:45 pm in reply to: Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle looks ace! #43943
I’ve been wanting this since day 1, but have been agonising over which platform to get it on! I think I will settle on Switch.
Same for me, I don’t know if I should get PS4 or XBox, though I need to get a joystick to fully appreciate this.28/09/2018 at 5:03 pm in reply to: Dirt Rally 2.0 Thread #43859
Will the game include super special stages?
They were a lot of fun in Colin McRae Rally games, specially in 2.0’s challenge mode.
Also wondering if we are going to see more cars from the early 2000’s like the Citroën Xsara or the Peugeut 206 to join the Focus WRC and Subaru Impreza from previous games.
Thanks Bernardo, say hello in the new members sectionhttps://www.teamvvv.com/forums/forum/f-a-q and tell us about your racing and gaming passions.
