I just wish these moronic announcers would go away.
I really just want to get on with the racing.

Why can't I skip the whole "HEY I'M YOUR PR GUY HUEHUEHUE YOU CAN'T SKIP WHAT I'M SAYING AND I HAVE COMMENTS ON EVERYTHING, BACK TO YOU GIRL WHO DOES THINGS. THANKS PR GUY, HEY I HAD A BAGEL FOR BREAKFAST THIS MORNING AND BIRDS FLY WITH THE BERNULLI PRINCIPLE LETS TALK TO THE MECHANIC. THANKS G.W.D.T., HEY CLICK ON A RACE AND I'LL EXPLAIN IT. GREAT YOU CLICKED ON A RACE. THIS IS A RACE, GO FAST TO DO GOOD AND GO SLOW AND YOU'LL DO NOT GOOD. OMGWTFBBQ THERE'S ANOTHER RACE, YOU SHOULD PROBABLY GO FAST AGAIN AND NOT GO SLOW, LISTEN TO ME I'M A MECHANIC AND THEREFORE KNOW ALL ABOUT THE RACES. OK COOL I'M DONE EXPLAINING ALL THE RACES THAT HAVE EVER EXISTSED AND NOW YOU KNOW WHY STIRLING MOSS WAS GROOVY. OK, COUNTDOWN TIME BEEHOTCHES GET READY TO STOMP DAT GAS 3... 2... 1... GO OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH WAIT THERE'S ONE MORE THING YOU CAN REWIND TIME BECAUSE THIS IS REAL LIFE AND REAL LIFE HAS TIME TRAVEL. DON'T BELIEVE ME THAT THIS IS REAL LIFE? THEN WHY ARE ALL THESE ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ ANNOUNCERS HERE? BECAUSE WE ARE IN THE IRL SO YAY YOU CAN'T SKIP ME D-BAG KEEP CLICKING GET MORE MAD. GREAT YOU FINISHED THE RACE LET'S TALK MORE ABOUT HOW THAT FEELS ON THE INSIDE AND MAYBE CONSIDER DOING ANOTHER RACE. CLICK ON THE SAME RACE FROM A DIFFERENT SEASON TO HEAR ANOTHER EXPLAINATION. GET MOAR MA:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:DDDDDDD" ?

All this to say, you have a passenger who is an expert on the track and yells stuff like "80 left 6 left over crest right 6." and while there is an indepth, unskippable explaination on how to click on a triangle to start a race, there is no mention of how to interpret this expert knowledge thus far.

***=> ??WHY DID YOU NOT CREATE SOME MORONIC VOICE OVER EXPLAINING IN DETAIL WHAT THE PASSENGER IS SAYING?? =<***

That would be worth listening to. I honestly could not care less about Jack or the contract girl or the mechanic or anything. Actually, I have negative care, because I dislike it so much I wrote this whole damn thing.

In future games, perhaps include an option for "D-BAG ANNOUNCERS ON/OFF?"

This is so true , the fact you cant skip it is infuriating. It's annoying to have to sit through it. I can't be doing with the co-piolet either it's frustrating as hell and has no way to turn it off. I also can't seem to find how to stop the car slowing itself down for corners. This is all after the whole farce of getting it to even launch aftger all the GFWL nonsense. This is the worst purchase I have ever made of a game. I will not be touching this series ever again.

I've stopped playing Dirt because of this. I had to listen ~ 5-10 minutes of crap before i got to the first race. Not to mention that It couldn't conenct to my live account, no matter what i did.

Solution incoming:
1. Turn down the Voice Volume in audio options. Reduce your pain, but take it! xD
2. In the Menu before starting the Race (where you can also edit your vehicle and stuff) there is a tab called driving assistances (?) [german: Fahrhilfen]. Click on it, advanced options, the 5th option is the one to disable.

Have Fun with this.. interactive racing experience. Whatever.

Btw: This CpsLock-Text was hilariously funny to read.

I'm glad you enjoyed it :) The only voice over I like is the driving assistance. I just want the game to tell me what she's saying. What's a left 6? Why 70 crest left to right 8? Those seem like useful things to know what you're racing.

The complex announcer uses the navigator system from real rally races. When she says something like "Left 1", left is obviously the direction of the corner, and 1 is the difficulty of the corner. 1 is the hardest corner next to a hairpin, and 6 is the easiest corner. Sometimes they say "Left 5 plus" meaning its not a lvl 6 corner, but easier than a lvl 5.

Crest is a high point or a hill, jumps are obvious, and cut/dont cut means whether or not you can steal a couple feet from the inside of the corner.

The announcers don't bother me at all. I just treat the game like an SSX game and I assume that is what they were going for.
