    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    This makes me really happy and very certain that we will see a sequel to dirt rally 2.0!

  5. Sometimes when doing a daily and you repair the car its still a little bit damaged before you even done a shakedown. I have no idea how to reproduce it and i wasnt sure until today that it was a bug and not me just forgetting but today i got 100% sure that i took recommended repairs and i still had minor body damage. When i did recommended repair i had more damage than just bodywork though so it fixed some of it. PC, steam

    Did you expect the tyres to get changed while you was driving? 😕

    VR FAQ & Performance

    The performance in VR is very up and down. One session the game can be very good and after taking a break and get back its stutter heaven. If theres a DR 3.0 i hope they use the Madness engine.

Also using 2x msaa and 16x anisotropic filtering, i dont think that apply even if you copy because your config says multisampling off and yet i had it on trying yours.

    I was kinda thinking about doing this event seriously and do all stages except the first one that i missed. Had a good run going and..... CRASH.. Event log: Its quite obvious that im not supposed to do this club because last time i got racenetted. Should probably see this as a sign. Good luck to all other participants 😞

    I think a lot of your settings are heavy on the cpu because the framerate was around 80 and yet the GPU was only at around 80% also. Im only using a 1600 so thats probably whats keeping me back here. The settings im using currently keeping the GPU to about 95% (msaa x2 probably put it up) in the worst conditions so i guess ill stay with them until its time for a upgrade.
