  1. f1 2017

    La Codemasters ha pubblicato sul proprio blog un nuovo articolo dedicato al suo prossimo F1 2017: nell'articolo, che include anche una intervista agli sviluppatori, ci viene spiegato tutto il lavoro fatto sull'audio del gioco, con tutti i dettagli sullo sviluppo e le particolarità legate alle vetture storiche presenti in F1 2017. Saturday Spotlight: Sounding Out F1 2017’s Audio When you’re driving F1 cars in-game, both classic or modern, what they sound like really makes the difference – from hearing the 2017 Scuderia Ferrari overtake you around Spa, or hearing the charm of those screaming V10s or V8s. As there’s nothing that puts a smile on our face more here at Codemasters than the sound of an F1 car driven around a circuit in anger, we sat down with F1 2017’s Audio Lead Brad Porter and Audio Designer David Gurney to sound them out about F1 2017’s audio. What’s new for F1 2017? Brad: As an audio team F1 2016 was our maiden voyage, taking over from the previous audio designers. As a team we decided that an important part of our job going forward was to communicate with and take feedback from the community. So going into F1 2017 we’ve listened and we’ve made improvements as well as added many new features. As always we’re very active on the forum, on social media and on YouTube so feel free to continue sending in comments, feedback and letting us know about any issues you find. We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved as an audio team for F1 2017 and we can’t wait for you to hear the results! David: For 2017, we’ve made a host of improvements, but the two biggest ones have been around how sound propagates through the virtual world. These are occlusion and convolution reverb. Previously, when a car disappeared behind something, like through the tunnel at Monaco, you might have been able to hear it through the wall. If a car drives behind a building or something now, the audio should change according to what is in the way. The second one is quite nerdy, but it sounds super cool. We previously used algorithmic reverb, but now we use convolution reverb. What this allows us to do is to take an ‘impulse’ of a real world location, for example a real tunnel, and apply that effect to our Monaco tunnel. We have a bunch of different impulses that are used in different environments, so each one has more character and sounds more accurate. How have you recorded the sound for F1 2017? David: We attend events (with the cars) and organise our own. We take a bunch of microphones and stands, memory cards, and batteries on trips. Almost all of our recording trips take place ‘in the field’, so we have to be prepared for bad weather – like the rain at the British Grand Prix in 2016 – and good weather – like the second stage of the 2017 pre-season testing in Barcelona, where one side of my body was burnt from being stood trackside pointing a microphone all day! Recording trips are a huge amount of fun, especially when they involve my favourite sport, but they are tiring and sometimes challenging. When it comes to recording the cars themselves, we grab as much trackside reference as we can, from as many different angles as we can, and we work alongside teams to record their cars. As you may know, car engines and exhausts are very hot to the touch – especially on high performance cars like these – so we have to be very careful with microphone placement and preparation, since we don’t want any melted cables or the microphones themselves being damaged. We generally give the equipment to the teams’ engineers who will mic the car up, according to our guidance, as they know how to balance the weight of the equipment to maintain performance. Brad: We’ve been out and about doing some crowd recording sessions, you may have even seen us next to the podium at the Silverstone 2016 GP! We also recruited some willing Codies staff to perform chants and other crowd noise for us so if you’re lucky there’s now also a chance you’ll hear the crowd chanting driver names. We’ve also made great efforts this year to research the little details that fans may not even realise unless they visit a circuit. We’ve researched pit horns for example and ensure to the best of our knowledge that each track now has authentic pit horns triggering whenever a car enters the pit lane. Where possible we’ve grabbed the actual pit horn used on each track. With the help of some teams we’ve even recorded different types of air blowers. What should people listen out for in F1 2017, that they might not otherwise notice? David: One thing that I think is that when audio works well, it doesn’t get noticed. Brad: Our new occlusion and reverb systems. We’re now using convolution in game so audio with the world now sounds far more like it belongs in that world, while tunnels now sound like tunnels and grandstands now sound like grandstands! What’s your favourite thing about your job? David: This job suits me down to the ground, based on my experience and interest in audio, my love for video games, and my passion for all things motorsport. It’s almost like the job was made for me. It’s a joy to work on this project, with this team. And I love Mondays. Brad: I get to work with two other great audio guys and we’re all on the same page about how we want to drive audio forward for F1 2017 and beyond. We all have our own particular strengths and we gel really well as a team as a result, so in almost a decade of working at Codies I’m having more fun than I’ve ever had here. What are you playing at the moment? David: When I was asked this question, I said Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild because it had just been released. I would be lying if I said I had completed it, Hyrule is soooo big. And Mario Kart 8. Both are fantastic games. Brad: I have a big backlog, including some games of a daunting size like The Witcher 3 but I’m renovating a house and I have a 1 year old son so I’m finding it increasingly difficult to put aside time. Right now I’m playing the odd bit of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and I’ve just started Rise of the Tomb Raider. We can’t wait for you to hear what both the modern and classic cars of F1 2017 sounds like, and fortunately we’ve only got until the 25th August to wait! Don’t forget that you can pre-order F1 2017 now on Steam here.

  3. Ragazzi, era prevista una novità da parte dei Codies ed eccola: http://www.dirt4game.com/uk Fantastico il tool previsto per creare prove speciali. Con un annuncio ed un trailer pubblicati a sorpresa, Codemasters ha svelato oggi il nuovo DiRT 4, capitolo che riprende la numerazione classica della serie dopo DiRT Rally, per il quale è in arrivo un DLC dedicato alla PlayStation VR. DiRT 4 è un'evoluzione nella simulazione rallystica per il team britannico, con alcune novità interessanti, a cominciare da un sistema chiamato "Your Stage" che consente agli utenti di creare nuovi tracciati attraverso un potente editor che permette di espandere i contenuti di gioco a dismisura, scegliendo l'ambientazione ed una serie di parametri specifici. DiRT 4, nelle intenzioni di Codemasters, si pone nel mezzo fra la simulazione realistica di un DiRT Rally e il divertimento immediato di DiRT 2 e 3, senza dimenticare le fondamenta dei vari Colin McRae Rally ed aggiungendo le licenze ufficiali del FIA World Rallycross Championship. L'uscita del gioco è prevista per giugno 2017 su PC, PlayStation 4 e Xbox One. Yes, you read it right – DiRT 4 is coming! Today, we’re delighted to announce that DiRT 4 will fearlessly race to PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC in June 2017. Hot on the heels of 2016’s critically and commercially successful DiRT Rally, DiRT 4 takes the passion and authenticity of off-road racing to the next level, whilst also re-introducing you all to white-knuckle truck and buggy racing in Landrush. Motorsport by its very nature is dangerous – it says so on the back of the ticket. DiRT 4 is all about embracing that danger. It’s about the thrill, exhilaration and adrenaline that is absolutely vital to off-road racing. And more than that, it’s about loving that feeling. It’s about pushing flat out next to a sheer cliff drop. Going for the gap that’s slightly too small. Seeing how much air you can get in a truck. They call it ‘being fearless’ – and this is what we aim to inspire in DiRT 4. DiRT 4 features a game-changing system called Your Stage; an innovative rally route creation tool that allows you to produce an almost-infinite number of unique stages at the press of a button. You choose your location and set the route parameters, then Your Stage does the hard work to create a unique rally stage that you can race, share with your friends, and then challenge them to beat your time. Your Stage allows experienced rally players to create longer, more technical routes, whilst newcomers can create simpler shorter routes as they hone their skills. With DiRT 4, we’ve sought to combine the levels of thrill and realism from last year’s DiRT Rally with the fearless excitement, fun, and adrenaline-fuelled races previously seen in its critically acclaimed prequels DiRT 2 and DiRT 3. Featuring classic rally racing that continues to build on the foundations set by the Colin McRae Rally games, the brutal, fast-paced racing from the official FIA World Rallycross Championship, the crazy battles of racing trucks and buggies, and the outrageous fun of open events in Joyride, players will face challenges from locations that span three continents. We can’t wait to tell you more of DiRT 4, so stay tuned for the road to launch – we’ve got so much to show you.
  4. Al E3 Expo in corso a Los Angeles è naturalmente presente anche il nuovo F1 2017 della Codemasters. Possiamo già ammirarlo in alcuni video di anteprima che, oltre alle classiche interviste agli sviluppatori, ci permettono di ammirare anche il gioco in azione.
  5. Codemasters ci presenta oggi la prima delle 4 monoposto storiche che saranno protagoniste del prossimo F1 2017: si tratta della Red Bull RB6, che trionfò nel 2010 con Vettel e Webber. Vi ricordiamo che le altre 3 vetture storiche sono la McLaren MP4/4 1988 (di Alain Prost e Ayrton Senna), Williams FW14B 1992 (di Nigel Mansell e Riccardo Patrese), e la Ferrari F2002 (di Rubens Barrichello e Michael Schumacher). Following our announcement of the official videogame of the 2017 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™ and the information that classic F1 cars are making their glorious return to the series, everyone seems to be very excited about F1 2017 landing this August! Sure, we’ve also got an even deeper career mode, numerous multiplayer enhancements, and a brand new ‘Championships’ game mode – but we know that you’d all like to know what other classic cars will be joining the the 1988 McLaren MP4/4 (as driven by Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna), the 1992 Williams FW14B (raced by Nigel Mansell and Riccardo Patrese), and the 2002 Ferrari F2002 (piloted by Rubens Barrichello and Michael Schumacher). So, on that note, we’re absolutely delighted to unveil the 2010 Red Bull Racing RB6 as the fourth classic F1 car that will feature in the game: Hit play on the brand new trailer showcasing the World Constructors’ Championship-winning 2010 Red Bull Racing RB6, as driven by the 2010 World Champion Sebastian Vettel and team mate Mark Webber. As you may have suspected, further classic cars will be revealed in the coming weeks – so keep your eyes on our blog and our social channels for those as they arrive. For those of you who don’t know too much about this beautiful car, let us tell you a little more about its history. The Red Bull Racing RB6 was an incredibly dominant car, with nine wins, 15 pole positions and six fastest laps across the 2010 Championship season. Christian Horner, Team Principal of Red Bull Racing said: “The RB6 is our first Championship winning car, and as such is very special to us. 2010 was a dream year for Red Bull Racing, to achieve our ambition and to do so in such a compelling and dominant fashion was a fitting testament to the car, the drivers and commitment of the team. We are delighted the RB6 is included in the new F1 game as a classic car, it’s certainly a classic to us and I’m sure gamers will love driving it and trying to recreate those golden moments on track.” Those of you who pre-order or pick up Day One copies of F1 2017 will have exclusive access to the iconic 1988 McLaren MP4/4, as part of the ‘F1 2017 Special Edition.’ Alternatively, the McLaren MP4/4 car will be available to be purchased at a later date. However, please rest assured that the eleven other classic cars are available in all editions of the game.

    Codemasters ci presenta oggi le 4 monoposto storiche della Ferrari che saranno protagoniste del prossimo F1 2017: si tratta della 412 T2, F2002, F2004 ed F2007, che vanno ad affiancare la Red Bull RB6, la McLaren MP4/4 1988 (di Alain Prost e Ayrton Senna), Williams FW14B 1992 (di Nigel Mansell e Riccardo Patrese). Revealed: the four historic Ferraris in F1™ 2017 Today, we’d like to announce that F1™ 2017, the official videogame of the 2017 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™, is going to include four iconic Ferraris from the history of the sport. If you missed our other blogs, F1 2017 also features an even deeper career mode, numerous multiplayer enhancements, and a brand new ‘Championships’ game mode. F1 2017 will release onto PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC (DVD and via Steam) worldwide on August 25th 2017. We’ve released a brand new trailer that showcases the four Ferraris, including three that were previously unannounced before today! The trailer is playing below, but it’s also playing over on our YouTube channel if you fancy watching it there too. Even with today’s reveal, we still have more classic cars to show you in the coming weeks. Here are the fantastic Ferraris that will be in F1 2017: 1995 Ferrari 412 T2 – as driven by Jean Alesi and Gerhard Berger during the 1995 Formula 1™ season. Alesi won the Canadian Grand Prix in this classic car for his first and only race win, as the team accumulated 73 points to take third place in the Constructors’ standings. Notably, it is the last car to be powered by a V12 engine. 2002 Ferrari F2002 – During the 2002 season, this was driven by Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello, the F2002 is one of the most successful Formula One™ cars of all time, winning 14 out of 17 races in 2002. 2004 Ferrari F2004 – In the 2004 F1™ season the F2004 continued the run of success the team had enjoyed since 1999. With Michael Schumacher and Barrichello again at the wheel, they won the team’s sixth straight Constructors’ Championship and Schumacher his fifth straight Drivers’ Championship (his seventh overall). It remains one of the most dominant cars in the history of the sport, winning 15 out of 18 races, recording 12 pole positions and many lap records that have stood up until the new 2017 season. 2007 Ferrari F2007 – best known for providing Kimi Räikkönen with his first World Championship title as he partnered Felipe Massa, with the car winning 9 out of the 17 races in the 2007 season.

Le prime due interessanti novità annunciate dalla casa inglese per il titolo di quest'anno sono una nuova modalità campionato ed il ritorno delle monoposto "classiche", come ad esempio la McLaren MP4/4 del 1988 di Alain Prost ed Ayrton Senna, la Williams FW14B del 92 di Nigel Mansell e Riccardo Patrese o la Ferrari F2002 di Rubens Barrichello e Michael Schumacher, tutte protagoniste del video e screens di anteprima appena pubblicati. MAKE HISTORY IN F1™ 2017 Here’s what you’ve all been waiting for – today, we’re very happy to announce F1™ 2017 to the world! We’re also very happy to tell you that F1 2017, the official videogame of the 2017 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™, will include the return of classic F1 cars, as well as an even deeper career mode, numerous multiplayer enhancements, and a brand new ‘Championships’ game mode.

Because we love you guys, we wanted to mark the occasion by releasing a trailer, showcasing three of the historic cars that will feature in the game: the 1988 McLaren MP4/4 as driven by Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, the 1992 Williams FW14B that was raced by Nigel Mansell and Riccardo Patrese and the 2002 Ferrari F2002 of Rubens Barrichello and Michael Schumacher. These aren’t all the classic cars we have in store for you, though, and we’ll be revealing more of them to you in the coming weeks. We grabbed Game Director, Paul Jeal and Creative Director Lee Mather to get the lowdown on what’s new in F1 2017: “After an extremely successful year with the highly acclaimed F1 2016, we are delighted to be announcing F1 2017 and re-introducing classic F1 cars back to the series” said Paul Jeal, Game Director here at Codemasters. “Classics were incredibly well received when we included them in F1 2013, and in F1 2017 they are back and better than ever. With so many great cars to choose from, it was hard to decide on the final twelve, but we are delighted with our selection of some of the most successful and iconic fan favourites from the past 30 years.” “For the first time ever F1 2017 fully integrates the classic experience into the main career mode,” said Lee Mather, Creative Director at Codemasters. “As part of your career you will be invited to race in modern day, invitational events in the different classic F1 cars throughout the season. We’re also adding to the variety in F1 2017 with the inclusion of four alternative circuit layouts, as well as numerous new gameplay types. The classic cars will also be available to play in a range of other game modes, including online multiplayer modes and time trial.” After seeing the stunning new car designs (not forgetting the liveries, of course), with the lap-record-breaking performance levels to match, the 2017 season has seen a huge number of changes to the sport. With the Spanish Grand Prix just behind us, it’s safe to say that the opening races of the season have been absolutely thrilling, as Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport’s Lewis Hamilton and Scuderia Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel battle it out at the top of the Championship, and Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen continuing to excite fans around the world. We’ve also got another treat for you: if you pre-order or purchase ‘Day One’ copies of F1 2017, you’ll have exclusive access to the iconic 1988 McLaren MP4/4, as part of the ‘F1 2017 Special Edition.’ The McLaren MP4/4 car will be available to be purchased at a later date, and the eleven other classic cars are available in all editions of the game. The best bit is that you can pre-order on Steam right now – all you need to do is check out F1 2017’s Steam page right here. We’ve got plenty more news to share with you, so make sure you follow us here on the blog, on our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube for all the latest news and videos.

    La Codemasters ha appena lanciato il pre ordine tramite Steam del suo prossimo F1 2017, titolo con licenza ufficiale FIA Formula 1 dedicato al mondiale in corso della massima categoria dell'automobilismo. Acquistando subito il gioco, che sarà disponibile dal 25 Agosto, si avrà l'accesso esclusivo alla mitica McLaren MP4/4 del 1988. Vinci il Campionato del Mondo 2017, batti ogni record con le auto F1™ più veloci di sempre e gareggia con alcune delle auto F1 più iconiche degli ultimi 30 anni. Con una Carriera ancora più estesa di 10 anni, diverse varietà di gameplay nella nuova modalità ‘Championships’ e una serie di nuove caratteristiche, sia online che offline, F1 2017 è il più completo ed emozionante videogioco di sempre, dedicato alla F1.
  14. Dopo il particolare "esperimento" di DiRT Rally che, pur non avendo venduto tantissime copie è stato molto apprezzato anche dai puristi della simulazione rallystica hardcore, la Codemasters ha annunciato a sorpresa a fine gennaio il suo nuovo DiRT 4, che sarà disponibile sugli scaffali il prossimo 9 giugno, capitolo numero 4 della fortunata saga "sterrata" della software house inglese. Proprio nel passato weekend, la Codemasters ha organizzato a Milano una presentazione con test speciale del gioco, praticamente in versione definitiva, con la possibilità di giocarlo senza limitazioni, occasione ghiotta per rendersi conto in quale controsterzo vuole dirigersi DiRT 4... Inoltre c'è stata la possibilità di fare qualche domanda a Paul Coleman, Chief Game Designer del progetto, presente per l'occasione. Partiamo quindi da quello che ci ha spiegato Paul: "I piani per questo capitolo sono nati nel 2011, subito dopo il rilascio di DiRT 3. In particolare l'idea di realizzare una tecnologia che creasse circuiti procedurali che potessero essere aggiunti al gioco all'infinito, era un qualcosa che ci veniva richiesto da tempo dai nostri utenti, ma che allo stesso tempo si prospettava complessa e costosa da mettere in pratica. Dopo DiRT Rally, con il potenziale ancora inespresso della serie, avevamo finalmente in mano le giuste carte per andare dalla nostra dirigenza e chiedere che quel tipo di investimento venisse finalmente fatto. Non è stato facile perché per dieci anni abbiamo disegnato le nostre piste allo stesso modo, ma penso che sia stato fatto un bel lavoro". Dopo aver selezionato l'opzione Your Track si passa all'ambientazione, diversa per morfologia, terreno e condizioni meteo a seconda che si corra, per esempio, in Francia, Spagna o Norvegia. Quindi con due selettori si determinano la lunghezza del percorso e la sua complessità, intesa come numero di curve. "Noi stessi - ha spiegato Coleman - abbiamo usato questo strumento per realizzare i tracciati della campagna: tutti tranne i circuiti, che restano disegnati a mano, sono stati fatti così. O meglio, con una versione un po' più potente di quel tool che un giorno, se le cose dovessero andare bene, potremmo anche decidere di condividere con la nostra utenza". Risulta subito evidente, anche dopo una veloce prova, che gli eventi che vanno a formare l'esperienza single player di DiRT 4 sono davvero tanti, con numerose opzioni e contenuti. Il nostro garage, che va ampliato grazie alla nostra bravura acquistando nuovi bolidi, copre praticamente tutte le categorie del gruppo R fino alle Stadium Buggy e Truck, includendo anche vetture particolari come i Cross Kart. Molto interessante risulta essere una sorta di "scuola guida" creata da Codemasters in DiRT 4, divisa per lezioni e obiettivi, con un sistema articolato che da modo di impratichirsi tanto con le tecniche di base quanto con quelle avanzate. Si punta evidentemente alla scalabilità dell'esperienza di guida, come Paul ha infatti spiegato: "Questo non è DiRT Rally 2 e, nonostante quell'esperimento abbia avuto successo - ma non nella misura che Codemasters si aspettava aggiungo io -, ci dovevamo assicurare che si trattasse di un prodotto adatto a tutti. Sapevamo che quell'impostazione si sarebbe rivelata troppo hardcore per alcuni utenti, ma allo stesso tempo non volevamo che chi avesse accolto positivamente quell'impostazione non ritrovasse qui abbastanza profondità: per questo abbiamo deciso di lasciare all'utente la scelta, fin da subito". Il gioco propone infatti una gara non appena lo si lancia la prima volta, una corsa di prova alla fine della quale si viene messi davanti alla possibilità di scegliere uno tra quattro livelli di difficoltà, dal più permissivo fino a quello più realistico. "In generale abbiamo fatto alcune modifiche importanti al modello di guida, ad esempio per quanto riguarda l'aerodinamica. Le auto da rally non ne fanno un elemento cruciale come altre classi di vetture da corsa, ma resta un aspetto che influenza la tenuta a terra e il rientro in traiettoria dopo una curva in derapata. Questo aspetto in particolare è stato curato più che in passato e il risultato si riflette sul grip e la risposta in strada dei diversi modelli, che rispondono in modo differente". Effettivamente il lavoro fatto da Codemasters sul modello di guida si riesce a percepire positivamente sin dai primi kilometri, ancor di più se paragonato con il precedente DiRT 3. Siamo però molto lontani dal realismo di DiRT Rally. Anche scegliendo il livello di difficoltà più realistico, appare da subito chiaro che DiRT 4 di fatto non considera quasi per nulla la reale dinamica del veicolo, gli spostamenti di peso e delle masse, il lavoro delle sospensioni, ad esempio quando si porta l'auto in derapata: si tratta semplicemente di sterzare nel momento giusto e la macchina farà il resto del lavoro, con spettacolari ma semplicistiche derapate. In ogni situazione, anche la più estrema, il veicolo risulterà essere sempre in una posizione di assetto quasi totalmente neutro, quindi abbastanza semplice da gestire e controllare. Più che altro è il tipo di terreno, fondo e disegno del tracciato che influenzerà il nostro comportamento al volante. La prova "in estremo" più semplice, fa capire chiaramente la volontà di Codemasters di trasformare tutti in piloti di rally: se in ingresso curva ritardiamo volontariamente la sterzata, sbagliando quindi clamorosamente il controsterzo per l'effetto pendolo, otterremo come unico risultato una vettura mostruosamente di traverso, rallentata vistosamente, ma che percorrerà ugualmente la curva ! DiRT 4, come si nota dai filmati, ha una resa grafica decisamente bella da vedere nel complesso, con una nota di merito in particolare per gli effetti atmosferici convincenti, senza registrare problemi di sorta neppure su consoles. Si tratta di un gioco di rally molto molto divertente, in particolare con la frenetica modalità del rally cross e tante opzioni che contribuiscono a prolungarne la longevità. Si tratta però di un gioco, certamente non adatto a chi vuol davvero provare l'emozione di domare le derapate rallystiche più estreme che, ancora oggi, ci può offrire il buon vecchio Richard Burns Rally. Almeno fino all'arrivo di un certo gRally. La speranza, per i simdriver rallystici, è che Codemasters ritorni a pensare ad un seguito per il progetto DiRT Rally. I grandi numeri di vendite che certamente realizzerà DiRT 4, spegneranno però probabilmente ogni speranza...
  15. La Codemasters ci presenta oggi in un nuovo video di anteprima il suo prossimo DiRT 4, titolo in arrivo il 9 giugno su tutte le piattaforme. Il trailer è dedicato alla spettacolare disciplina del Rallycross, per la quale DiRT 4 ha la licenza ufficiale FIA. DiRT 4 is the official game of the FIA World Rallycross championship, and the new gameplay trailer shows Supercars racing at Lohéac Bretagne, Montalegre, Lydden Hill, Hell and Holjes. In addition to the Supercar class, DiRT 4 also has rallycross racing in RX2, Super 1600s, Group B classics and crosskarts making it a fully fledged rallycross experience. You can watch our new trailer here: Developed in consultation from two time FIA World Rallycross Champion, Petter Solberg, the rallycross handling in DiRT 4 has undergone a complete overhaul to ensure it is as close to the real thing as possible. Rallycross is thrilling multicar, circuit racing on mixed surfaces made up of both dirt and asphalt. The short, quick-fire races take four to six laps and each car must complete at least one ‘Joker Lap’ which is longer than the traditional lap leading to tactical, enthralling wheel-to-wheel racing. Drivers compete in four qualifying races before the top drivers make the semi finals and final. The supercar class in the FIA World Rallycross Championship are 600bhp beasts that accelerate from 0-60mph in under 2 seconds – faster than a Formula One car. Launching on PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC on 9th June 2017 DiRT 4 challenges you to Be Fearless as you take the wheel of the world’s most iconic and powerful off-road vehicles. Featuring two different handling models, Gamer and Simulation, DiRT 4 offers both depth and accessibility for players old and new to the franchise. The game’s innovative Your Stage system allows you to produce a near infinite number of unique rally stages at the touch of a button.

    La Codemasters ha appena pubblicato un nuovo road book, il settimo, per illustrare lo sviluppo in corso sul nuovo DiRT 4. Ci parla di eventi dal vivo, ci mostra la lista completa delle periferiche supportate dal gioco e ci offre anche un nuovo trailer di anteprima. This week’s Road Book is a little all over the place, in tribute to how all over the place the DiRT team’s been with promoting the game! We’ve been at HockenheimRX, MettetRX, a shiny preview event in London, and we’ll also be at Lydden Hill which is just around the corner – so we’re doing our best to spread the DiRTy word as far and wide as possible. After all, with only three weeks to go until DiRT 4 is available globally, it’s the perfect time for us to take things up a gear (see what we did there?!) Alongside the shiny stuff, we’ve also done some important work in the office too – like finalise our initial supported peripherals list. You’ll be able to find that list in this post, so stay tuned for that in a few paragraph’s time. :) Anyway, let’s get to the good stuff – and crack on with the Road Book! DiRT 4 Preview Event As you might’ve seen on the internet yesterday, we held a very special preview event in London. It’s safe to say DiRT 4 went down an absolute storm, so keep your eye out for some of the capture and content that will come out of that! We’ll be sharing them as usual over the coming days and weeks – but for a sneaky preview of what went on, you can check out one of the Periscopes we did at the event: A big thank you to Matt Beckett (our resident Product Manager for Micro Machines World Series) for daring to have his first crack at DiRT 4 live on Twitter! True story: Paul Coleman, Chief Game Designer for DiRT 4, gave him a couple of choice motivational words just before we went live… those words were ‘be brave’. You can also take a look at the first video we’ve seen come out of yesterday’s event, posted by Erased Citizens on YouTube last night. Alas, there isn’t any sound from the game – but if you want to see how beautiful it looks, then this is a pretty good representation. Supported peripherals – the list! So we’re at the stage where we’re finally able to unveil our supported peripherals list! Of course, these peripherals are mostly assorted wheels, pedals and shifters – but you’ll also see a couple of other things on there that are technically compatible input peripherals! Finally: please note that this is just the first list, and that it will be subject to changes/updates as certain manufacturers launch new hardware.

But it was a short and sweet one because… SURPRISE – LIVE DiRT SHOW INCOMING We’re surprising you with news of a live DiRT Show this afternoon! We know you’re all hankering for some longer runs and a root around the menus and car list, so that’s what we’re bringing to you. We’ll also be taking Your Stage generation requests and answering your questions – so please, feel free to post your questions in the various Road Book threads of the internet and we’ll try our best to get round to answering them later! We’re looking at a 14:00-15:00 start time, depending on when we can all herd the cats together – but we’ll let you know when we’re confident about hitting the ‘stream’ button. :)
  17. La Codemasters ha appena annunciato con il classico trailer di lancio, l'arrivo per il 25 Agosto del nuovo F1 2017, titolo con licenza ufficiale del mondiale di Formula 1. Le prime due interessanti novità annunciate dalla casa inglese per il titolo di quest'anno sono una nuova modalità campionato ed il ritorno delle monoposto "classiche", come ad esempio la McLaren MP4/4 del 1988 di Alain Prost ed Ayrton Senna, la Williams FW14B del 92 di Nigel Mansell e Riccardo Patrese o la Ferrari F2002 di Rubens Barrichello e Michael Schumacher, tutte protagoniste del video e screens di anteprima appena pubblicati. Commenti e discussioni sul forum. MAKE HISTORY IN F1™ 2017 Here’s what you’ve all been waiting for – today, we’re very happy to announce F1™ 2017 to the world! We’re also very happy to tell you that F1 2017, the official videogame of the 2017 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™, will include the return of classic F1 cars, as well as an even deeper career mode, numerous multiplayer enhancements, and a brand new ‘Championships’ game mode.

    La Codemasters ci propone oggi un nuovo video diario di sviluppo dedicato al suo prossimo DiRT 4: questa volta sono gli stessi piloti professionisti che hanno collaborato allo sviluppo del gioco a spiegarci tutti i dettagli ed esprimere la loro opinione. Ecco quindi cosa ne pensano Peter Solberg e Kris Meeke. World renowned drivers talk about beating their fears to finish ahead in latest DiRT 4 trailer Want to understand the true meaning of ‘being fearless’? Watch our brand new DiRT 4 trailer where world class professional rally and rallycross drivers – including Kris Meeke, double FIA World RX World Champion Petter Solberg, and the Hansen brothers – talk about how they compete against fear as they push to go faster and finish on the top step of the podium. The new video reflects DiRT 4’s Be Fearless tagline and is available to view right now: DiRT 4 puts you at the wheel of some of the world’s most iconic and powerful off-road vehicles, as you test yourself against the road and the elements in a battle against the clock. There is also multi-car racing in rallycross and landrush, where you will have to be brave (and fast!) in order to take the chequered flag. World renowned rally driver Kris Meeke, who worked as a handling consultant on DiRT 4 commented: “You have to forget about the fear factor. It’s purely about winning or losing. That’s the real special element in rally.” Two-time FIA World Rallycross champion and DiRT 4 handling consultant Petter Solberg said: “If you believe in yourself a lot, you know you will jump in the car again and be fast… I won three races in a row after probably the biggest ever accident in rally. It’s about how much you want it!” Featuring two different handling models, Gamer and Simulation, DiRT 4 offers both depth and accessibility for players old and new to the franchise. The game’s innovative Your Stage system allows you to produce a near infinite number of unique rally stages at the touch of a button – allowing more experienced players to create longer, more technical routes, whilst newcomers can create simpler shorter routes as they hone their skills.

    La Codemasters ha appena pubblicato un nuovo Road Book dedicato al suo prossimo DiRT 4. Questa volta ci viene spiegata in dettaglio la differenza fra la modalità di guida simulativa e quella gaming. Non mancano alcune spettacolari immagini in alta risoluzione. DiRT 4’s handling modes Right – and now for the meaty bit… So, we know that DiRT Rally had an incredibly steep learning curve – where you as a driver were expected to either sink or swim. A lot of you swam (and incredibly well too!) but for DiRT 4, we’re giving you two different handling models to choose from – just in case you struggled with diving straight into a simulation handling experience last time round. These handling models aren’t assists (which, by the way, we do have in the game, and are applicable to both handling models) – they are two separate handling modes: Gamer and Simulation. For those of you who loved the simulation handling from DiRT Rally, don’t worry – our simulation stuff for DiRT 4 is very much based in the foundations of that, but refined in certain areas. One of the places you’ll most definitely feel the difference is in our aerodynamics. We’ve worked on aerodynamics across all disciplines, and the way the vehicle travels in the air feels a lot more stable and authentic to the real life experience. We’ve also worked hard to nail down the tarmac experience of DiRT – especially where Rallycross is concerned – and you can hear Chief Game Designer Paul Coleman discuss those changes we’ve made in the DiRT Show – cut to the 20:54 mark for the tyre chat: For those of you wanting to know the difference between Gamer and Simulation, that’s where we have to start getting a little foggy. After all, what makes our Gamer handling special is super secret sauce… However, we can say that it’s not necessarily made up of different assists – as all assists in game can be added to both handling models. So, even if you were to switch everything off on Gamer, it’d still feel different to our Simulation handling. What we can say is that we have some incredibly clever stuff working under the hood for Gamer handling, and we can guarantee that it’s still the incredibly fun, rewarding and quality experience you’d expect from a DiRT game. :) And not even a hefty order of kebab pizza would make us give up our secrets! For those of you who love the game in all its forms, it will allow you to play it in two different ways. Gamer is very much a challenge to blast it down a stage, stay between the lines and get the fastest time against some challenging AI – whereas Simulation is the challenge to yourself to keep it on track and not ruin your stage time. A fan of DiRT can easily play both modes and get a different experience out of each model, and at same time find both methods of play completely exhilarating in different ways. For example: in the studio, we’re finding that when we’re running time trial competitions (we have two stations set up for these competitions – one Gamer, one Simulation) – and when things get a little tougher with a historic RWD, some of us veer to the Gamer handling so we don’t have to be constantly terrified of our repercussions. It’s definitely a less stressful way to approach certain vehicle/track combinations, if you’re interested in something like that! As we’ve alluded to earlier in this piece, we have the usual suite of assists you’d expect to find in a racing game – and these are based on systems that either exist in real life, or replicate the real life actions of motorsports drivers when they’re at the helm of the wheel. You’re not on rails, you’re not having anyone turn the car for you – the systems in place are ones which ultimately still leave you in control of the vehicle, but perform a certain function in making sure you stay in control of the situation. However, we’ve worked on an assist or two of our own… A big example of this is our new Off-Throttle Braking assist. When this is enabled, the brakes are automatically applied whenever the throttle is released – so for all of you who like to use the ‘lift off’ method, it’s a very natural-feeling bit of help to slow your car down. When learning the skills of off-road racing, you’re very much taught to be either on the throttle or on the brake, and so the effect of the assist implements a driving style closely associated within this particular motorsport. The strength of this assist can be adjusted too – so whether it’s just the smallest bit of help you’re looking for, or for the game to look after most of your braking needs, we’re there to offer a spectrum of assistance. For maximum attack, and to experience the ultimate rawness of being in control of one of DiRT 4’s vehicles, we recommend you go for the full-frontal, unbridled simulation handling with as little assists as you can manage! However if you’re new to DiRT and want a slightly less hardcore experience of the game, then we have some cool stuff under the hood to keep you on track. Or at least, we hope so. We’ve given you the tools to do it – the rest is up to you!
  20. La Codemasters ci presenta ufficialmente per la prima volta in video il suo nuovo DiRT 4, che sarà disponibile dal 9 giugno su tutte le piattaforme. Il trailer, dal titolo "be fearless" (ovvero sii senza paura), condensa in 1 minuto di azione pura, tutto quello che dovremo aspettarci dal racing game della casa inglese. We’re delighted to be able to show you the first official gameplay trailer for DiRT 4, which showcases the breadth of racing that fans will be able to experience on the PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC from 9th June 2017. You can view the new DiRT 4 gameplay trailer right here on our blog: DiRT 4 is available to pre-order now on PS4, Xbox One and Steam with exclusive goodies – pre-order now to reserve your place in our special Founders Event at launch! Pre-order on the PlayStation Store >>> http://bit.ly/DiRT4-PS4EU Pre-order on the Xbox Store >>> http://bit.ly/DiRT4-XboxOne Pre-order on Steam >>> http://bit.ly/DiRT4-Steam In case you didn’t notice it, the new trailer features the absolutely banger of a track that is ‘Instigators’ by Grace Potter – just one of the songs from the amazing in-game soundtrack that has been created for DiRT 4 in an exclusive partnership with Globe, Universal Music UK’s in-house sync team. The agreement with Globe will see over 40 licensed tracks appear throughout the game, matching DiRT’s unique style and tone, and including exclusive tracks from artists such as The Amazons, Sigma, Freak and Pretty Vicious alongside tracks from The Chemical Brothers, Disclosure, Queens Of The Stone Age and Bastille.
  21. La Codemasters ha appena pubblicato un nuovo road book dedicato al suo prossimo DiRT 4. Questa volta l'attenzione è focalizzata sulla nuova modalità denominata "Creating Your Stage", che guida appunto il giocatore alla creazione della propria tappa rally personalizzata. Creating Your Stage environments Right, that’s enough from me! It’s time for a juicy technical feature on one of DiRT 4’s awesome new features. So, let me hand you over to Lead Technical Designer on DiRT 4 and one of the many brains behind our Your Stage system, Jason Evans. Want to know how Your Stage environments are created and how it enhances the player experience? You’re in luck, because those are the questions I asked him – and that’s exactly what he delivered. It’s all gold, so get yourself comfortable and enjoy. :) In terms of the new opportunities Your Stage has brought to the table, what are you excited about being able to offer players? Your Stage has opened up many opportunities for us as a developer and for the player experience. One good example of this is the ability to add more ‘straight’ sections into our tracks. In the past this has been avoided to a certain extent, because in order to try and maximise the amount of gameplay within the very tight track budget it was always deemed as a lesser feature. Your Stage now allows us the ability to show just what a feature section of straights can be – and not only can we add a few more straights into tracks, but we have control over how many and how long these sections can be. We can now have some sections of straights at different lengths, some around 1km long, and these often prove to be truly fearless sections of track. Their straightness encourages the player to go flat out, but the changes in the track surface, undulation, objects and trees keep the player alert – as the consequences of going wrong when flat out could easily end your rally. This provides a great new experience for the player that comes in all shapes and sizes but is always exhilarating; sometimes you look for your next corner as safe place to catch your breath. This system has been likened to an (albeit more technical) Scalextric track – how have the studio gone about ensuring variety within each different environment? Your Stage has not just provided solutions for us, but also brought its own difficulties. One of the key problems we had to solve was how to ensure we could create enough variety of corners, straights and junctions for each location that would be able to provide plenty of replayability and unique experiences for the player. To achieve this we continued to research track locations to the same standard as you’ve seen in DiRT Rally, to maintain the level of detail required for a realistic experience. This ranges from us researching the track surface and edge details through the different road shapes, through to the experiences of racing within that location and environment. The corner sequences and gameplay detail remain a high priority as with our previous titles and with Your Stage we have been able to capture many of these unique elements for the different locations. So, using Your Stage technology we are able to bring a vast quantity of the elements that make up each of these unique locations into our game for the players to experience in huge variety of different combinations. Each section of track the player experiences has been processed by our Level Design and Environment Art teams, all based on the research to maximise the detail of the player experience. This system has an almost infinite amount of combinations of track, corners, junctions, etc – how have you used this to your advantage in the game’s Career Campaign? Another wonderful thing with ‘Your Stage’ is that we now have the ability to tailor and tune our game for a much wider variety of players than ever before. Built into the Your Stage technology are two key components that allow this to happen: length of track and complexity of track. With these two adjustments we (and the player) have control over the two main factors for creating a progressive game with a learning curve. The complexity covers many internal factors such as camber, corner severity, undulation, width and more. We now have the ability to create nice short tracks with simple complexity (more straights and shallow, visible corners) – and these tracks are ideal for introducing new and less experienced players to the world of rally. With the system being completely scalable we can then ramp this up to longer, less complex stages, short complex stages, and all the way to 16km technical monsters. Under the hood there is a lot more going on, and we have a huge amount of control over many additional factors including elevation and different rule sets that allow unique track construction per location. This means we can use the same system to make Spain feel like Spain, whilst Australia is made to feel like Australia, which is completely different in terms of stage composition. All this control and flexibility has allowed us to curate the career with different tracks that allow the structure to increase the challenge as you progress and develop your skills – something we’ve not been able to do in the past. This presented its own challenges to us, but after much hard work the player should now get a much more in-depth, progressive experience from the Career Mode – as well as a colossal variety of unique tracks through the freeplay mode! What kind of work has Your Stage required from different parts of the studio to make it feel so authentic? The development of the Your Stage content has been a new and difficult challenge for all our content creators, and the results are testament to their skills, perseverance and the close communication between our various teams. From the initial designs, the crafting of road shapes and gameplay surfaces to the creation and detailing of the environment art, we have overcome many problems to create the authentic, seamless experiences. The Level Design, Environment Art and Tech teams have worked closely to achieve this and utilised mass quantities of real life research for each location. We have conquered the difficulties with some of the very specific requirements that needed to be met to achieve the Your Stage experience, and have processed more data than ever before. Integration into the different landscapes has also been a huge challenge –and this was one of the big things we needed to tackle to polish and complete the player experience. Many new techniques have been created to help – and despite initial teething problems the solutions developed are providing excellent results. As a result of the team’s innovation, their new techniques have allowed Your Stage to offer the full environmental experience for each and every track. Despite the content creation still being an expensive part of our processes we are now able to achieve a massive boost in value from our content whilst still retaining our superb attention to detail and feeling for being in a specific location. Overall, everyone in the racing studio has worked incredibly hard – and despite the challenges and problems faced, we have achieved something truly incredible. We believe Your Stage really is a game-changer for off-road racing games and there are many plans in place to further develop, improve and expand this technology. And that’s all from us this week – have lovely weekends, and we’ll see you back here soon! P. S. For the eagle-eyed amongst you, yes, I did slide a couple of new screenshots into this. Well-spotted. ;)

  23. F1 2016 è, con mia piacevole sorpresa, il primo gioco della serie in cui riesco a divertirmi e ad avere voglia di girare ancora e ancora per migliorarmi e gareggiare. Il passo avanti rispetto ai capitoli della precedente generazione è notevole e finalmente si riesce ad avere un volante con un feedback che sia qualcosa di più di una sola vibrazione sui cordoli. Per riuscire a gustarselo al meglio, posto una serie di consigli che spero possano tornare utili a chi non è abituato all'interfaccia Codemasters e quindi potrebbe trovarsi in difficoltà nel settare i principali parametri che trova negli altri sim. Driver grafici: 372.54 per nVidia FOV Gradi di rotazione F1 2016 supporta più periferiche? 1) nVidia ha rilasciato i driver 372.54 con supporto ufficiale a F1 2016. Sulla mia configurazione, dotata di scheda nVidia GTX 970, a settaggi Alti ho guadagnato circa 30 fps di media nel benchmark di gioco. Per una installazione pulita consiglio quanto segue (riservata ad utenti esperti: si declina ogni responsabilità in caso di danni al computer per un uso improprio della seguente guida). Scaricare i driver ufficiali dal sito nVidia Scaricare Display Driver Uninstaller ed estrarlo in una cartella a piacere, possibilmente sul Desktop Premere Win + R sulla tastiera, digitare msconfig e premere Ok Scegliere la tab Opzioni di avvio, quindi aggiungere il flag a Modalità provvisoria -> Minima Riavviare il PC, inserire la password completa (non il pin, se richiesta) e aprire la cartella in cui si è estratto Display Driver Uninstaller Avviare l'eseguibile Display Driver Uninstaller e scegliere il pulsante Clean and restart Al riavvio del PC, installare i driver scaricare in precedenza. Per una installazione pulita consiglio di selezionare la modalità Custom, aggiungere la spunta alla casella Effettua una installazione pulita (ATTENZIONE! Eliminerà eventuali profili creati in precedenza) e scegliere solo gli elementi che servono tra quelli proposti (in particolare, lasciare solo il driver selezionato obbligatoriamente ed aggiungere PhysX; aggiungete GeForce Experience se utilizzate ShadowPlay per registrare le sessioni di gioco, mentre deselezionate le voci legate al 3D se non ne fate uso) 2) Già da F1 2015 è finalmente possibile regolare il FOV dall'interno del gioco, senza dover più modificare a mano file di configurazione o altro. A differenza di altri sim, dove possiamo impostare il valore preciso che desideriamo, F1 2016 ci offre un settaggio vicino a quanto era possibile fare nella serie Race dei SimBin. Avviate il gioco e aprite il menu delle opzioni Selezionate Opzioni grafiche, quindi Opzioni telecamera Modificate il valore Campo visivo a piacere: valori negativi vi porteranno ad avere una visuale più corretta in termini di proporzioni e valutazione delle distanze, valori positivi favoriranno una migliore visione degli specchietti, a discapito però del realismo. 3) F1 2016 è pensato per essere utilizzato con una rotazione dello sterzo di 360 gradi. Se avete un volante Logitech potete impostare tale valore nel profiler, così che sia impostato automaticamente ad ogni avvio. Con le altre periferiche di guida, invece, se non volete cambiare manualmente ogni volta i gradi, impostate quanto segue. Avviate il gioco e aprite il menu delle opzioni Selezionate Personalizza Comandi, quindi Impostazioni avanzate volante Impostare la saturazione dello sterzo su 63 per i volanti con 900 gradi, 72 per i volanti con 1080 gradi 4) F1 2016 supporta più periferiche. Non so il limite massimo, personalmente ne utilizzo tre (Fanatec GT2, Clubsport Pedals V1, Formula Rim moddato) e tutte vengono assegnate correttamente all'interno del menu controlli. Al momento (v1.2.0) alcuni controlli vengono indicati come ERRORE dopo averli assegnati e le rispettive funzioni non compaiono nelle spiegazioni a schermo: utilizzate la tastiera e i tasti funzione per spostarvi nei menu, fino a quando non avrete capito a che tasti corrispondono sul vostro controller. Effettuate una sessione di guida con solo la tastiera per capire con esattezza a cosa corrisponde ciascun comando nella rispettiva descrizione a fondo pagina.
  24. La Codemasters ci propone oggi una nuova puntata del suo Road Book dedicato al prossimo DiRT 4: questa volta andiamo ad analizzare tutti gli aspetti che riguardano il team management. It’s Road Book time! On today’s agenda is one thing, and one thing only – and that’s DiRT 4. A few weeks back we asked you what you wanted to know about; in the last Road Book we gave you the lowdown on landrush, and this week’s specialist topic is… *drum-roll* Team Management! Yup – this week’s update is dedicated to the inner workings of your very own race team; how you hire and fire your staff, branding your vehicles with your own livery and sponsorship deals, and improving your facilities so you can expand your team’s impact and performance. A few of you eagle-eyed players have also noticed in the HUD that we are clocking your vehicle’s mileage too… Well, it’s all linked to your garage and how you buy and sell your collection of cars. We’ll cover off those details in this too, as it’s all connected! So sit back, relax, grab a cup of your favourite beverage, and hear all about our brand new Team Management system.
