    Dirt Rally 2.0

    It's en route - I'll do a mini review here once I get it installed and tested.

    Hope this works. Ebay links are mind boggling. This is the one I ordered - just took a punt on it - so if you want to wait till I've tried it, I'll post up some impressions from DR 2.0...

    Dirt Rally 2.0

    I cracked and bought a handbrake (analogue, natch) from fleabay - I couldn't keep the button version within reach during sharp turns. Looking forward to trying DR2 with a proper control set...

    Sid - check you've configured the rotation for your wheel - you can compare the in-car wheel to yours for rotation. They should match. If not then your inputs often are massively over or under what feels natural. I also use gears for 'engine braking' when approaching corners, so downshift early. It's a little cheaty I guess, but hey.... Learn the stages a bit will help - 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears are your friends - any more and you're really motoring. Also its all about not 100% throttle, often using the throttle to 'gun' out of corners is effective, although in a RWD, it may not have the intended consequences Use the mini - it's a little more forgiving since the FWD can pull it out or round most things. Don't go 100%. After a few stages it will hopefully all start to 'click'...

    I hated the graphics to start with and also had flickering headlights (dust in the lights view?) I found turning off the TAA in graphics settings made things way WAY better for me, at the cost of a bit of distance shimmer. Quite happy with it now graphically - much more like DR1. I thought codemasters showed videos of stage recordings for the calls? I have noted volume shifts though - perhaps editing changes?

    Ah... same here. That'll be what I get for buying a cheap key.

    @Sharky - I bought the deluxe version at CDkeys. Cheaper by far, although my damn key hasn't dropped yet...

    So I've also bought it on Steam. Don't let me down, Codies ! Gotta say from the youtube reviews yesterday - Jimmy Broadbent's - it looks great fun. Just hoping for a old skool league like we used to do or similar. That was awesome fun....

    I was going to pass until they announced VR support.. Kinda looking forward to it now - I'll probably pick it up now even though the initial content sounded a little light until they add further countries and stages ? Sounds good though Joe...

    Elite Dangerous - Noobs now welcome....

    Some great pics there, Thor. This game engine blows my brain box - it just keeps cranking out wondrously different scenes as you travel. I'm doing the 40 jumps to my next DW2 waypoint now.... It's a bit of a grind - and I know I could likely reduce it with Spanx neutron jumps but I like the chillax of the jump routine...

    Elite Dangerous - Noobs now welcome....

    Some great shots here - I was having a look at those DW2 notable phenomenon last night. In VR this game really is on a different level. My trusty Cobra III took a bit of a dent when I overshot into the rings and it had to 'emergency drop out' - must pay more attention. Some kindly soul at the Abandoned settlement patched me up. I could hear those repair drones moving *AROUND* my ship in VR. Quite unsettling but still amazingly, gobsmackingly brilliant. I'm new to E:D - just started playing at Xmas after finally getting a HOTAS, and affixing it to my race rig. My jump range is only 35ly so DW2 is likely to be a bit of a grind, but well, I couldn't miss it, could I ? See you out in the black....

    I'd certainly be interested - racing in PC land now though... So a proper wheel, a proper rig, and still not an ounce of skill. Jeezo.

    Project CARS 2 - The ‘ultimate driver journey’

    Its not too bad - you need to select project cars 2 from the game list and then click start. As soon as you do, the crew chief will chat to you to let you know all is well. You might need to enable external apps in PC2 tho if you've not used anything in the past. It should only take a min or two to read the doc to get you started.
