DiRT Rally - Modern Masters Update
It's time for 0.9!
Today’s version 0.9, dubbed Modern Masters, sees the introduction of two of the most influential rally cars in the last decade to the 2000s class: The Citroën C4 Rally 2010 and the Ford Focus RS Rally 2007. At their peak, these cars reigned supreme with their two litre turbo charged engines and highly sophisticated differentials.

The update also sees the introduction of the R4 class to DiRT Rally. Featuring the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X and the Subaru Impreza WRX STI 2011, this class represents cars from two of the most iconic manufacturers in modern rallying.

In addition, as part of our continued commitment to Early Access the Modern Masters pack sees the Group B 4WD and Group A classes receiving the latest handling updates. We’ve also been hard at work adding community requested features as well as fixing a number of known issues.

Here’s the list of what’s new this month:
  • New R4 class with 2 cars (Subaru Impreza WRX STI & Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X)
  • 2 new cars added to 2000s class (Ford Focus RS Rally & Citroën C4 Rally)
  • v.2 Car Handling on R4, Group B 4WD and Group A

Additions and Community Requests:
  • Stage distance and elevation is now shown in stage information screen
  • Steering rotation in cockpit now matches actions of player when the driver arms are not shown.
  • Manual control for headlights and wipers
  • New liveries featured on some cars including the Repsol livery on the Lancia Delta
  • Countdown timer added for the last 60 seconds of a Rallycross race
  • Grid Order and Assists added to session options in PVP
  • Player preferences is now available in the Lobby and Online Service Area

Fixes:
  • Fixed the CPU detection so the correct thread strategy is chosen for your PC. This fixes the stuttering issues that we may have introduced in v0.8, sorry about that!
  • The achievement “Visceral... but in the correct meaning of the word” is now only unlockable when meeting the required criteria. This should mean it is a proper challenge to unlock again.
  • The timing of some co-driver calls for Finland have been adjusted, they won’t be as early in some places. Also, they’ve got a bit braver so they’ve raised their volume a bit too.
  • Advanced Custom Wheel configurations are now saving correctly, Clutch deadzone and saturation settings will now be saved with wheel settings too. Yay!.
  • Animal protection services have been on the phone so we’ve had to move the wildlife on some stages to safety.
  • Issues with systems crashing at the start of a stage when using AMD Crossfire are now resolved.
  • The game will save after you receive your rewards from online events – yeah, they didn’t do that before.
  • Fixed a crash that would occur if you exited to the menus in a Rallycross event at the semi-finals .
  • Fixed the Logitech G29 actionmap so you can navigate the menus correctly – we finally got hold of one to test it out.
  • Fixed repair puncture OSD text remaining on screen after the player retires.
  • Fixed the wrong points being displayed for entrants when any of the reverse grid options were enabled in PvP.
  • “Gotta Get Me One of These” and “Any Given Sunday” achievements both now unlock when completed in any relevant online event.
  • Spectating another player crash at high speed in PVP will no longer break the camera changing system.
  • The mouse cursor will now hide when the mouse is not moved for a short period of time, solving the issue where the mouse cursor would remain on screen when played in windowed mode.
  • AI difficulty levels should now be working within league play.

Feel free to stop by on the forums and let us know what you think or just to say hi!

Love,

The DiRT Team

-S2000
-R5

Better online experience with Leagues/Events. More options for custom Leagues (like disable assists, no restarts on stage etc)

Thanks Guys Amazing Work!

I can't really tell that you fixed the stuttering by the low FPS i got from this patch... (no it's not my computer or outdated drivers)
Question. How can i restore seat to default setting? Why wipers turn no on? What happen with animals? They be completly removed or what?
