    Serious regret on buying this game

    Is you Windows page file set to be automatically managed by the system? After setting this to auto, you also have to restart your PC. Because if you use manual settings, the game will crash.

    Dirt Rally refusing to launch correctly

    What do you see in the Windows Event Log?
  3. Try setting your Windows page file to be automatically managed by the system. System restart is needed after this.

  5. What is your Windows page file setting? Set it to Auto. You can look into your Windows Event Log to identify the reason.

    Patch 1.6 - FOV Settings for consoles?

    16-235 to 0-255 conversion is not distinguishable on PC's, so I think Xbox One X is also doing a great job. I recommend to try it on RGB full for games and movies too, because you wont't notice anything with movies and games will be better. If it will be worse, switch back to limited, but limited is only recommended with YPbPr (YCbCr) and not RGB, because movies are in YPbPr 16-235 with 4:2:0 chroma.

    That's not good. Your Xbox one X should be set to RGB Full and your TV Black level to Normal (Full).

    Patch 1.6 - FOV Settings for consoles?

    TV's are supporting both 0-255 and 16-235. You can look it up in their manual: there is a HDMI Black level setting on all TV's that controls this. If you are using your TV with your PC it is recommended to output 0-255 or full range RGB, because PC's are working with 0-255 exclusively and the results gets converted to 16-235, if that is what you set up. Proper TV and PC settings are important because it can cause a lot of trouble with black levels.

    Patch 1.6 - FOV Settings for consoles?

    Ok, but can you distinguish all numbered boxes? If you can't distinguish 1 or maximum 3 it's not a problem, but more is. I think Dirt Rally 2.0 relies heavily on almost perfect monitor settings, while other games are not.

    Can you distinguish all numbered boxes here? If not, it's there is no brightness issue, it's your screen settings.
  11. Definitely a graphics card or graphics driver problem. What Windows do you have? 7 or 10? Is you graphics card overclocked? If yes, go back to stock settings. Can you reset your graphics settings in the NVIDIA Control Panel? Uninstall Geforce Experience, if you installed it and uninstall any graphics related unofficial applications like MSI Afterburner or other graphics performance metric software.
  12. What is in your Windows Event Log when the crash happens? Do you have a manual Windows pagefile setting? If yes, switch back to auto and the problem will be fixed.
  13. "Lowest power, but dirt rally 1.0 looks like 2.0 compared to dirt rally 2.0." Dirt Rally 1 has a lot worse shadow and lightning system than 2.0. Everything looks unnatural and bleak. Grass on the terrain is also a lot better with 2.0. Because of these resource intensive stuffs, DR2.0 had to compromise on the resolution on low powered consoles. "Lowest power, but Forza Horizon 4 has mind-blowing graphics and performance." Forza Horzion 4 is PC and Xbox only game from a first party developer with much more money, time and special support for research and optimization from Microsoft. Codemasters hasn't got any special treatment developing their games and has to do a Playstation 4 version also. Think about this before you go "just go away, expert" on somebody, who know what he's talking about.

    You can buy calibrated Dell IPS monitors for 250-300 USD. The problem is that most people don't care about the proper viewing experience, so they just use their monitors with crappy settings. All they need is an expert to calibrate their display.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 Roadbook - June 7, 2019

    Test you monitor with this black level tester and brighten you screen accordingly: "On an ideal monitor, all of them should be distinguishable, even the very dark first row of squares.".
