  1. I have a question about running this game on my PC and being able to use the steering wheel I have.  Should I post this here or elesewhere?

  2. I'm running on a PC with Steam with a really slow BB connection and downloading 95 Gb of data from Steam takes for ages (26 hours)

    I'm not sure if this is a Steam question but will ask it.  Is there anyway I can backup DR2.0 in the event that I have to reinstall it or recover from a computer glitch.  I have Acronis True Image and I am hoping that this will do the job if anything happens in the future.

    Thats my thoughts on the TX aswell while playing Grid. It's as if all the settings have been turned right down. On the TS XW wheel though the FFB is much better, have no other wheel to compare to to see if other models and manufacturers have issues?

    Since my last post I have found this information on the Thrustmaster site, hope it will help you.

    FFB Settings  These together with the ingame settings have made all the difference.

    I have just upgraded from the TX wheel to the TS XW wheel and the FFB is amazing in grid. I have had to adjust settings to compensate.

    Has there been any updates to the game on xbox one, the same goes for Dirt Rally 2 it is much stronger.

    I am wondering weather the TX wheel has an issue with Grid's device drivers as others have reported week to no FFB on that wheel as well.

    I have upgraded my G27 wheel to a TX Wheel leather edition and the upgrade seems to be a total disaster.  The handling of the car with standard settings on the TX wheel is just impossible, particularly on a rear wheeled drive car.  I dont think its the game. I am just waiting for a new graphics card to arrive so I can test the TX on WRC 8 to see if that helps.  I also have Dirt 2 on my PC so will try that as well. 

    I have the outlay doesnt prove to have been wasted.

    It's not Steam, it's the game. 

    It's about 100GB now. All players download and install the entirety of its content regardless of what DLC they paid for. This is so direct online games don't segment the playerbase; if a host creates a Championship with DLC content, other players can still join and play on that content even if they don't own it. You can race other players in South Africa driving a 2019 RX car, for example, even if you purchased neither stage or vehicle.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Is what you have said true for whichever platform I choose (xbox, PC, PS4)

  6. Does anyone know whether there is a PC version of Dirt Rally 2.0 available that doesnt require the use of Steam but just runs on the PC.

    I ask this question because the Delux PC version requires a Steam account and the Steam account downloads 94 gigabytes of updates and amendments.
    As far as I am aware the game only need around 60 mb of data storage so where Steam get the 94 GB of updates is just beyond me.
