    Are cars meant to look trashed before the race?

    I assumed the OP was just talking about texture streaming. Lol. This game actually loads in the wrong textures???
  2. Yes, as I stated days ago, TAA is the problem with soft Tree graphics. ps: don't listen to Jesped. He has no idea what he's talking about.
  3. Chromatic Aberration? I believe it's actually called Chromatic Abortion.

    WOW Mediocre reviews ...

    Yeah, this was going to be a day one buy for me, but as the reviews started coming out I'm happy I held off. Seems very rushed and with Codies track record with this stuff, I doubt it's going to see any significant updates.

    Watered down damage.

    IMO, Grid 2 is easily the best Grid game. By miles.
  6. You seem like someone who knows a little about what they're talking about. Obviously then, you know that almost all games use a combination of cube maps and SSR. Barely any race games rely entirely on SSR. Grid uses a cubemap/SSR combination. Yes, those cube maps could better designed to fit into the world but that's an artistic issue and not a graphical limitation.
  7. I don't see the issues? Honestly, it's a fine looking game.

    WOW Mediocre reviews ...

    ACG's review has stopped me buying this day one. I may pick it up, but only if the information in other reviews is substantially more positive.

    WOW Mediocre reviews ...

    Metacritic reviews are usually worthless and filled with protest reviews. You've got the guys who will give a game 1 out of 10 because they got banned from the Steam forums, then you've got the guys who will give the game 10 out of 10 to combat the 1/10's.

    Only DX12... ***, really?!

    Windows 7 support ends in about 3 or 4 months. Move on.

    And yet, TAA had the exact affect on Dirt 2.0's trees.

    GRID Graphics Discussion

    Looks fine to me? The trees probably look like that due to TAA, but whatever, who cares it's just a racing game. The biggest concern I have is performance on the X and Pro, DF's recent look indicated some dips to mid 40's which isn't ideal.

    Yes, there are similarities?

    Heh, I'm not so sure that's the case. As current and next-gen console make use of X86, we may well see developers continue to develop their games for XBX/PS4. Maybe not in every case, but why wouldn't they? There's about 50m XB's out there and 100m Ps4's.

    You have to keep in mind that Codies have to develop these games to cater to lowest spec machines (OG Xbox's from 2013). So, the scaling of this Ego engine is pretty impressive. I think the game looks great and can't wait to be playing it during Bathurst weekend next week. In future, I'd like to see Codies add some RT reflections to their car models that would be awesome.

    Tarmac Physics = Dirt Physics?

    The driving physics in Codies games since about 2003 have always had very similar characteristics. You can see in videos, the handling is very floaty in this game. The cars pivot from their center. It's very awkward. Not to offend Codies, this game will be fine and fun. But, as a consumer, do not go into this game expecting anything remotely sim like.
  17. Because then there would be nothing to complain about!

    Huge rhythmic stutter on high end PC

    Yeah, this has stopped me playing it. Disabling USB devices does fix the issue, but I CBF'd doing that each time.

    What are "titans" in DIRT?

    Well, I didn't see this question coming.
  20. Heh. You can go from 2nd gear back to reverse, back to 2nd, rev, 2nd etc and not do any damage. It's like a big shopping trolley, not great for a 'sim' though.

    Tired of grinding

    I must be the only person who almost exclusively only plays time trials with these games.
  22. Yes, I have a G29 and put up with the pedals because I'm a pretty casual gamer nowadays. But back in the day I would have modded or avoided these pedals altogether. These pedals are a perfect example of Logitechs continued decline from a once top tier gaming peripheral company into what now can only be described as largely inconsistent. The brake pedal feels so bad, I struggle to believe they actually tested it.

    Season 2 Info, will there be a season 3

    Bring on the gravel then!

    Season 2 Info, will there be a season 3

    It's not so bad. Wales will be fun. I agree about RX though, I really don't touch the RX content at all. Greece would be a good Rally stage to have, but isn't Greece mainly tarmac? This game's tarmac physics just don't feel right, so maybe another country with mud/snow would be better? Either way I'm okay with Season 2 content.
