  1. I am having the same issue with Dirt Rally 2.0..says "failed to load" and allows me to 'retry'. which no matter what, doesn't do anything. hitting cancel just backs me out. I am not allowed to play the game, totally locked out from it. I own F1 2019 too, along with all your other games so you know. Just trying to save room on your servers by not making a new thread 😄. Am wondering what needs to be done to bypass this? Backstory.. I took a hiatus from D2.0 but wanted to play it this weekend. I own all the DLC/Season passes and am a proud supporter of your titles. My fear is.. I was 1 stage away from beating the Pro Series in Career. Things just came up and I had to set it down. Since then, several tracks have dropped like Finland, Greece, ect. I am worried that I need to do something drastic.. like reset my progress losing all my cars and stuff. Or very least reset my career mode losing the months of hard work to get towards beating it. I am a controller user, so nailing first place each stage took a lot of practice in Time Trails to then go back and beat it on Career. Was brutal! I don't want to redo it all or lose all my stats. -ZA

    DiRT Rally 2.0, Version 1.5: Bug Reporting Thread

    Not sure if this has been reported but I played in career mode this morning and noticed that whatever tyres I place on my car before completing a couple stages, the wrong tyre is shown installed when viewing at the next service area. For instance, I had an 8KM stint in Poland split between 2 stages, followed by a service area. I threw on "soft" tyres and then went on to complete the next 2 stages with those tyres. Upon returning to the next service area, I went to replace my tyres with new ones and the tyres shown equipped were "mediums". They drove like "softs", there is no mistaking those 2 compounds and am sure this is a bug. They were shown as "worn" which is good, that function is still working but the tyre compound seems to be stuck on "medium" regardless of what you put on your car. Other than this, I've only encountered the audio bug before you race a stage. Happens to me whenever I go to repair/view part condition on the vehicle. There is still a little bit of sound but it's quite muffled with a bit of static, it's like if you fell into the trunk of the car and someone closed the hatch lol. Everything else is running smoothly for me and overall quite happy with this patch. Keep up the good work devs. Really appreciate everything you guys do for us. Have a great rest of your week. Cheers. -your friend, zero

    DiRT Rally 2.0 Car Setups

    I am really struggling with Sweden, can't seem to find a good setup for my drivetrain/suspsension. Just was wondering if you had a spare few moments @2Technical if you could give me some pointers on tuning my Peugeot 208 T16 for Sweden or maybe a screenshot of what you have for your car (if applicable). Anyone else down to help me feel free. I am in the first leg of my rally here in the "elite" category or w/e it is, AI is stomping me out having finished 23rd on Lysvik. It's weird, I like the stage, I feel fast but my times are awful. I've not tuned my car for the snow/ice before and am quite inexperienced in these conditions. Any help would be appreicated for sure! Thanks and hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I will be watching WRC in Chile and Formula 1 in Spain, so you know I will be! lol Cheers! -ZA UPDATE: I should be OK for right now. I decided to slap on my Argentina setup for Sweden and it actually worked out pretty darn good. I had to make some minor tweaks but I've improved my times and am back at the top spot. It's by no means perfect but it's doing the job! You can safely ignore my request for screenshots @2Technical, I am set until you update your vids here later! If anyone wants to post their setups or w/e, I'll still take them, just no need to go out of your way for me. Thanks!

    DiRT Rally 2.0 Car Setups

    You have probably planned on doing this but I am looking forward to seeing some setups for Sweden preferably for my favorite Peugeot 208 T16 hehe Just me though xD Anyways, hope you are doing good. This thread is a godsend truly and we as the community are really fortunate to have you doing these vids for us. While I haven't been able to use your setups fully (probably because I race with a pad) you gave me the ground work to build my own setups with being able to see and understand the changes you make to the car with your setups. Keep up the good works. Can't wait to see what you drop next. Like I said, my vote is some Sweden with R5's or maybe the 2000 cc's (Skoda!?). lol Cheers man! -ZA

    On one hand, I can agree it's ugly and not very pleasing to the eye. On the other hand, it definitely adds impediment to my driving as heavy rain should irl. lol Very challenging to see down the road as we all know. In that regards, it definitely seems to be working as intended it's just unpleasant to view and not very realistic looking. I wouldn't mind it as much but AI don't seem to be affected in the way we are which is frustrating at times, ok most times. Me personally, I'd be happy if they A. leave it as it is but adjust AI stage times to reflect on driving in bad weather or B. change the rain so it's pleasant to view and easier to see the road when driving leaving the AI alone. As it stands, I like many others loathe rain lol

    Weather in Dirt Rally 2.0

    While we are on it, having wind as a factor for rallying would be an awesome feature. I know the chances of getting gusty winds that affect the vehicle would be slim to none but thought I'd throw this out since it's been something I've wished for for a long time, especially during bad weather like heavy rains! 😄

    DIRT 2.0 "Adaptable" achievement is glitched for me

    This has been broken for me since I noticed it a week or so of playing D2.0 around the beginning of March. I play on PC (Steam) and have tried everything and it won't work. I've completed every rally up to elite in career mode and rx up to pro in career mode, done multiple dailies, weekly's and free play championships still not unlocking it being stuck at 3/4. I have basically written off ever being able to obtain this achievement along with Fire up That Car.. again. Since it's being brought up, thought I may as well speak up because it would be really awesome to get this fixed someday. I am not an achievement hunter but for games I love, I like to get as many as I can for them as a way of expressing my appreciation for the game, so it's a bummer that a simple one as that cannot be unlocked. Thanks for your time. Cheers. -ZA

    DiRT Rally 2.0 Car Setups

    Just wanted to say thank you for sharing your setups and that I hope you continue making videos like this. There is so little information out there for this stuff and it's great to find someone like yourself who's willing to take the time to make these for us to use. I've only recently started tuning for DiRT Rally 2.0 and haven't taken a game serious in that regards since Gran Turismo 5 lol I am using an xbox controller on PC though which hinders me greatly and I am poor so will not likely be able to afford a wheel setup anytime soon. Applying your Peugeot R5 208 T16 setup for Catamarca is hit and miss for me, think the ride height is too much with using a controller but it could be that I am really bad at this event lol Anyways, I was just thrilled to find someone who made setups for my ride (Peugeot R5) that I can take and tinker with. Very little out there in general for setups and much less for that vehicle. Keep it up though, this is amazing stuff! Thanks again bud. Cheers! -ZA EDIT: I'd like to add a request that if you had the time/wanted to, would be nice to go over RX, specifically the Super RX cars. I'm struggling quite a bit the in RX Pro series and still have elites to go 😞 haha so yea, just thought i'd add this. See you!

    33% pricedrop??

    Man, if a company placing their game on sale soon after release bothers you, you probably should never buy games until they go on sale then. Dirt 2.0 sold poorly, largely due to the massive review bombing it unjustly received. It's not surprising that they have placed it on sale by now. Lot's of games do this following poor sales. I don't mind, I am happy to support my favorite devs. Am happy it's on sale too, gives others who have been holding out due to the crazy reviews a chance to try it for themselves. It's a win - win. I don't see an issue.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - V1.2 - found a bug? Post it here!

    Achievement - Adaptable still won't unlock regardless of meeting all criteria. Daily RallyCross boots you back to main event page after finishing a practice. The practice taken/repairs made do not count when you are removed from the stage either, essentially gives you a fresh restart when you return ie. complete 1/2 practices, when you return 2/2 is shown. When you replace tyres and leave the stage having 0 sets left upon returning, you have the new tyres still on your vehicle but you also get 1+ set of tyres back. Not sure if the tyres are displayed improperly ie. worn tyres shown as new. or if the game is allowing us to keep a new set of tyres while adding 1+ to the overall. Keep up the hard work! You guys made an awesome game and I have far more good things to say about this game than bad, trust me! Really appreciate it. Hope you all have a great rest of your week. Cheers!
  11. Greetings,  My frustration has peaked and I find myself posting here as I am out of ideas on how to alleviate the crashing from this game when I am playing. I bought F1 2018 on Steam when it was on sale last week and while I really enjoy the game when I am able to play it, the constant crashing is ruining the overall experience for me. It's now at the point where I no longer want to play this awesome game until I find a fix because it's not worth the loss of time, frustration and heartache. I own and played a lot of F1 2017 and never had this issue. I also play other games that are quite taxing on both the CPU and GPU like Arma 3, Yakuza 0, Killing Floor 2 and Witcher 3 without as much as a hiccup, let alone a crash. I am at the end of my wits on what is causing my game to crash on me, I will list my specs and what I've tried so far in hopes that someone (preferably a Codie) finds it in their heart to help me solve this so I can fully enjoy the F1 2018 experience. Thank you in advance! My PC Specs: Intel i7-6700K @ 4.0 with boost clock @ 4.5 Noctua NH D15 Cooler Evga FTW 2 1080 GPU 2012/5000 (tried with and without OC to no avail) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 32GB Ram (8gb x 4) ROC Asus Maximus VIII Hero Alpha MB Seagate Hybrid HD 1TB (game installed on this) Crucial SSD 2 TB (OS and misc. on this - might install F1 2018 on this tonight..) EVGA G3 1000 Watt PSU  7 140mm Noctua NF-A14 3000 RPM Industrial Fans for PC case cooling Monitor: AOC G2460PG 24" G-Sync, FHD (1920x1080) (I also switch to my TCL 50" 4K HDR TV for sofa gaming but only used it 1 time for this game thus far for a short time and had no issue) Headphones: 7.1 Surround Hyper X Cloud  Things I've tried: Verifying game files. Painstakingly checking that every driver for both software and hardware is up to date. Disabling McAfee's "Real Time Scanning" and Firewall. Changing Graphics from low, high and ultra. Changing resolutions, windowed mode, windowed fullscreen and fullscreen. Setting V-Sync off and on.  Limiting refresh rates from 30, 60 and 143. Turning off Xbox controller "trigger" rumble. Turning off and on Ambient Osculation.  Changing Advanced Sound settings for the CPU from Low, Medium and High. Running GPU at default, running GPU with mild OC, running GPU with high OC. Increased Voltage on GPU in increments of 10% up to 50% as well as Power Target from 100% up to 120% using various combinations with either OC or default. Capping GPU FPS at 30 and 60 using Evga Precision X. Nvidia Control panel - Adjust Image Settings set to "Let 3D application Decide" and "Use Advanced 3D settings" Set GPU to "prefer maximum performance" in Nvidia control panel as well as using "Optimal" and "Adaptive".  Went into Windows Power Settings and tried "balanced" and "high performance" for the CPU. Using CCleaner, cleaned up the registry, defragged my HHD and all that good stuff. Cleared Download Cache on Steam.  Tried Talking to Jeff and not talking to Jeff/enabling mic/disabling mic. Using headphones or using my Logitech speakers. Probably did more just not on the top of my head right now but I've been working for the last 3 days trying to troubleshoot this game and have got nowhere. For some reason, during Practice I don't have nearly any crashes, they happen but are a lot less but come Qualifying and Race, they ramp up and happen around every 5 mins. There is no warning nor any correlation that I can find like "being near a car" or "jeff speaking on the radio". They happen at any time, I can be preparing for the race looking over my strategy and the game will crash or I can be racing on lap 15 and the game will crash. There is no rhyme or reason from what I can tell. I've noticed a few times, the game will lag for a split second before it closes out back to Steam but that's as bout as much warning as I get. On Steam, it treats the crash like I closed it out myself, running Cloud Sync after each one and allowing me to instantly reboot it up. I've had games in the past crash and Steam usually hangs up with them, either not doing a sync or not allowing me to hit the "play" button until it finishes shutting down. It's weird. My crashes in F1 2018 are like someone hit the "close" button on my tab, it just closes out and that's that.I don't get any error messages or bug reports to submit, nothing. I will note that whenever I "Alt Tab" to my desktop then when I go back to the game, the screen is black and flickers a half dozen times or so before the game pops back up. It's much much worse when I used my 4K HDR TV, it flickers faster and will present the game up but it will be all pixelated and the colors are super saturated, lasting 5 or so seconds before returning to normal. Anyways, I am at a loss here as to what to do. The last thing I am going to try is to reinstall on my OS SSD. I don't like to do this for the reason that SSD is for my OS for one and another, I have terrible internet now that I live in the middle of nowhere, so the 24GB or whatever this game is takes about 12 hours to download for me. Even if I could refund it (though the problems didn't show until hours later in Qual/Race anyways) I wouldn't because I like supporting you guys and the F1 trademark. I've loved all your games and have had some of the best times in gaming with them. From the brief playtime I've been able to have, I really enjoy the game. The career mode is a huge step in the right direction and excites me for next years game as there is a great foundation to build on now with this iteration. The cars feel the best yet and the racing is some of the best sim racing I've ever had believe it or not and I've been playing racing games for most of my gaming life starting with Gran Turismo back on PS1.  I'd offer to send a bug report or something but the game doesn't give me one when I crash. I hope that with the information I've provided you that your able to help me out but if there is anything more you need, let me know and I'll get back to you ASAP. For now I am going to set this game aside sadly and pray that with your help I can find a fix so I can enjoy this title :D Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Cheers. -ZeroAffex   EDIT: Forgot I also disabled GeForce overlay/shadowplay and Steam overlay as well as G-sync in Nvidia control panel.
