A few things to be aware of at these rally locations.
The stages are shorter in length so we should see competitive time differentials.
Portugal has many large rocks/boulders that can do serious damage.
The Kenya stages have many fast straight sections which abruptly become sharp turns. Or in your co-driver’s language a 1 or 2.
Pacifico is a ficitonal location which also has some deceivingly fast sections.
There will be more variations in time of day and weather. You can check ahead without actually racing the stage. Just look at the Racenet page and click on each stage. Then you can setup a Quickplay with those exact settings and drive them as many times as you want utilizing the Restart option.
Just finished Portugal. I had two times a black monitor on the very first stage, which cost some time to get out of the green again. Otherwise some minor mistakes and off tracks here and there, but managed to complete the stages.
Usually I just drive the Rally stages without preparation but the shake-down or two. I already have my GT3 rFactor 2 league where I drive in circles all day long
Laid down my times at Portugal. What a scenic drive through the Portuguese backcountry!
Yeah, the stutters are still there so I turned off DLSS. Funny thing is my fps didn’t drop, but it was smooth sailing like weaponz248 said. Codemasters/EA need to sort out this fps performance issue as it’s not looking good for VR implementation.
Sorry guys, but I’m going to have to back out of EA WRC rallies until Codemasters enables VR. I tried running it on the virtual desktop in VR, but I am having a hard time with depth perception. I really like the sim, especially Monte Carlo rally and how it switches from dry tarmac to snow and ice. That’s brilliant. There is a lot of potential, so hoping that they get motivated and release VR. Going back to DR2 in the meantime.
Seem to have found a bug. I did a quick stage to test my set-up and all went well.
When I did the shakedown for the Mudspike event all went well.
When I tried to start the rally no input was recognised from any device and I was stuck and had to Alt-F4
I didn’t do the first stage because as reported it was bugged and wouldn’t let me drive. After Alt-F4 closure and restarting, it counted the stage as run, so must have incurred some penalty because it has placed me a very long way behind everyone else in the overall results.
Stage 3 was fun - but I messed up when i took my foot off the gas at the yellow finish board instead of the red one! Would have avoided the wooden spoon if I hadn’t done that - grrrr! Missed by half a second…
Never mind - I’d started the game before checking but I realised we wouldn’t be doing it that way when it took me nearly 15 minutes and getting aches while wasn’t even halfway through stage 1! Man, that is a very long stage!
Glad we’re not going the full monty
*6.00 in first stage practice with 2 offs. Must do better!
