  1. Hi all,I was wondering if anyone could help me with this. I used to play a little Dirt 2 online when I first got the game and then after playing it for about 4 months the FPS would drop to 10-15 FPS only when I played online multiplayer. Most times as soon as the FPS drops it would lock up and I would have to shut down task from task manager. I can play single player all day long with 60+FPS consistently. This only happens when I try online multiplayer.  I have made no changes to my PC. Windows 7 Pro, Using I7 with 6950 graphics and 12Gb of good Redline Ram. Steam install.  I tried uninstall, re-install. No change. Tried uninstall, re-install GFWL files. No change. Tried using Dx9 , no change. Tried default bios settings on graphics card ( Dual bios with one overclocked that I used when I started playing Dirt 2. Tried it with my laptop instead of my desktop. No change. Tried bypassing my router and connecting directly to my cable modem. No change. (180 Mbps connection with cox cable)   I would love to be able to play D2 on occasion and switch between D2-D3 and eventually D4 :-)

    DiRT Rally Championship Bonus Round - Monte

    This has been fun but I have to admit I enjoy the online multiplayer part of the game much more than single player or career modes. That being said here goes with all the energy I could muster for these last few tracks.. I tried each a handfull of times ( 2) and called it a day. Hope to see some of you online.

    Great idea both sides then Col De Turini for the short track. 70's would be fun and challenging.

    DiRT Rally Championship Round 5 - The Final

    It has been great fun and like was mentioned above I would love to do this again down the road. I think we are all better dirt 3 racers because of it and owe a great big thank you to Lee for making it possible. Look forward to seeing you all online in jam sessions in this and other games... and without further ado..

    I think getting gamers to agree on something is akin to herding cats.. but I do like Vaaler Climb pro or classic.

    DiRT Rally Championship Round 3 - Wolverine Rally

    You should be able to open explorer - program files and do a search for "screenshots" then view them there. Sort by date for most recent on top. Hope that helps. They are held in a sub folder under steam.

    DiRT Rally Championship

    I agree, it would be great to do a rally there. It is an awesome track, and I am lucky enough to have the DLC on PC but for those who are new to DiRT 3 on the PC, they don't have the option of buying the DLC. It would be a bit stink to host a round at a track that some people don't own or can't get. I could also see how some people might not want to buy the DLC just for 1 round of the DRC. Monte Carlo does have some majestic tracks. Great looking and very technical tracks. Great fun. Too bad about availability. Shibuya is great fun as well but that's RX so not really part of this I guess.

  15. Ok I recieved a GFWL troubleshooting link from codies email support and will be able to try with changes made to my router. IE Opened some ports for GFWL. I think I had this setup b4 but have had several updates to router firmware and software since then.. It may have blown those settings out of the water. Hope this works. Thanks again cougar1981. Well following changes to my router, firewall and port forwarding settings per email from codemaster support I am sad to report that there is no change. The minute I click the online button in the game my FPS drops to 12-10 and screen starts to stutter. Will reply to support and see if they have anything else for me to try.

    DiRT Rally Championship Round 2 - Safari Rally

    As number 5 I must admit I'm glad you didn't ;) Wondering if snow is in our future... I really enjoy some of the Norway tracks. Well done all. Very impressive times.

    DiRT Rally Championship

    I hope the next dirt has something like this where you can use any car on any track.. I understand D2 was like that but never got an opportunity to do it.
  19. Nothing open in background. Have Bitdefender antivirus and put it into game ,mode. No change.. I feel it has something to do with GFWL due to the fact that it only happens in multiplayer mode. Like I said. I used to be able to play the game for about 4 months when I first got it. No changes to system other than critical windows update and suddenly it doesn't work with online. I have had this problem now for about 1 1/2 yrs and have found no solution. Again thanks for suggestion cougar.

    DiRT Rally Championship Round 2 - Safari Rally

    Mwatate : 2:34.471 Taveta :    2:16.738 Leopard:  2:59.228 *all times are no shortcuts other than hugging corners. http://imgur.com/71xd1yJ http://imgur.com/MCrJhiv http://imgur.com/9KOTppE This was a lot of fun this week. Don't enjoy these older cars as much as the newer classes, much harder to handle IMHO but then if it was easy everyone would do it. Give me 4WD, a good suspension and a nice bit of horsepower and I'm happy. :-)
  21. Hey cougar1981,  Yes it happens every time. When I go to multiplayer lobby FPS drops down and can lock up in lobby or when I join an ongoing multiplayer game. I can play single player all the time without issues.
  22. I consistently get 180 Mbps down and 25 up... I think it should be plenty of bandwidth. I play dirt 3 all the time without issues. But the fact that it only happens online does point to connectivity issue specific to dirt 2 and or GFWL. Thanks for suggestion. http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/3496709890
  23. thanks for taking the time to respond but I don't think it's a overheating problem.. I clean out my PC on a monthly basis and I'm able to play other games just fine plus I can play dirt 2 single player without any problems its only online that I have the frames per second drop down.
