  1. Over the last while we've seen issues where players on Steam report stuttering and general FPS issues, and after investigating it a bit further we wanted to put together a short guide to help with this. WARNING: Windows PC users: Disable Game Bar in Windows Settings. Disable "Steam overlay while in-game" in Steam settings. Make sure "Compatability Mode" is disabled on the .exe file for DiRT Rally 2.0. Enable Vsync and verify that the Frame Rate setting is at 60hz. If you're using an NVIDIA graphics card: In NVIDIA GeForce experience settings: Disable in-game overlay. In NVIDIA Control Panel > Configure Surround > PhysX: Select your graphics card in PhysX. In Manage 3D Settings: Find DiRT Rally 2.0 in programs (most likely under Steam) > [Add] In the settings for the program select the following: . CUDA - GPUs: [Use these GPUS] > Choose your graphics card model. . Maximum Pre-Rendered Frames: 1 . Power Management mode: Prefer Maximum Performance . [Apply] In-game: Graphics: Set [Crowd] to anything below [Ultra]. Ensure that multisampling is set to an appropriate setting for your PC spec. Additional tips: Remove all non-essential USB devices (including wheels and VR equipment) before launching. Once the game is launched plug in the devices you wish to use. Alternatively you can disable all non-essential USB HID devices through the following steps: Device Manager > Human interface devices Right-click on the relevant USB devices and select [Disable]. If you were having stuttering or FPS issues before this, please try the above and share your results in this thread.
  2. Hello everyone. This is a quick overview of the parts of DiRT Rally 2.0 that require online server connectivity to function. An online connection is required for the following parts of the game: My Team - Taking part in Events. My Team - Completing Events and submitting times to Leaderboards. My Team - Updating Garage contents. My Team - Upgrading Staff abilities. Custom - Creating Multiplayer Championships Custom - Finding and joining Multiplayer Championships Custom - Submitting times to Leaderboards in Time Trial Custom - Accessing and taking part in Club Events You do not need an online connection for the following game modes*: Colin McRae Scenarios Historic Championships FIA World Rallycross Championship Free Roam Custom - Creating and playing in single-player Championships If you experience server connectivity issues, and they persist after a short amount of time (and retrying doesn't work), the best way to let us know is through the following: Posting in this thread - Make sure you post what platform and region you are playing on too, as well as what part of the game you were trying to access at the time. Tweet to @dirtgame - As above, specify what platform/region you are a part of and what part of the game you were playing. Email custservice@codemasters.com - As above, the more info you provide the better. Screenshots are also useful. Although we have systems in place to detect the rare times server connectivity is dropping, making us aware directly is also helpful in ensuring everybody can get back to playing the full set of game features as soon as possible. Please note that server connectivity is tied into platform connectivity, so make sure to check if Steam, Xbox Live and PlayStation Network services are up and running also. If you're on Windows 7, check this first before reporting any issues: * The game will still attempt to connect in order to upload times to Leaderboards, however you can continue to play in these parts of the game regardless.
  3. Some PlayStation 4 users have reported issues with accessing their additional content when playing DiRT Rally 2.0. Here are some things you can try in order to resolve the issue and enjoy the latest content. The error: When a player attempts to use downloadable content in My Team, an error message may appear saying that they are “Missing Entitlements”. This could be caused by a few things: The DLC content isn’t installed on your PlayStation 4. The DLC content is installed on your PlayStation 4, but the game cannot find it on the console. The DLC content is tied to a player’s primary PlayStation 4, and they’re playing the game on a secondary console. Checking that the content is installed on the console: First, let’s ensure that the new content is installed on your console. Head to [Freeplay] and then to [Time Trial]. Choose a location and the car(s) you’re trying to access. If you can begin the event then the content is installed. If you cannot locate the content, head to the PlayStation store to download your purchased content. Once you’ve confirmed the content is installed on your console, restart the DiRT Rally 2.0 application and attempt to access it in My Team. Restore your PlayStation 4 licenses: If the content is installed on your console and you’re still getting an error, you may need to refresh the licenses for your content: Sign in to your account on PlayStation Network under which you purchased the content. From the Home screen, go to [Settings] > [Account Management], and select [Restore Licenses]. Click [OK] when done. Go to the [Library] > [Purchased], select the game you’ve purchased the add-on for and select the add-on. Access the content on your primary PlayStation 4: If the content is installed on your console and you’re still getting an error, you may need to set your console as your primary PlayStation 4. Here’s how you do that: Sign in to your account on PlayStation Network under which you purchased the content. From the PS4 Home screen, go to [Settings] and select [Account Management]. Select [Activate as Your Primary PS4], then [Deactivate] then [Reactivate]. Once this is done, restart the DiRT Rally 2.0 application and attempt to access your content in My Team. Contact us: If you have tried all of the above and you still cannot access your downloaded content in My Team, you can contact us at custservice@codemasters.com and we’ll look into it. Make sure to provide us with your PlayStation Network username, which country you’re located in and details of which content you are having trouble accessing.
  4. Hello everyone. Please see below for answers to common questions surrounding VR support for DiRT Rally 2.0, along with a guide to help players improve the feature's performance on their system. Frequently-Asked Questions Is DiRT Rally 2.0 the same on Steam and Oculus? DiRT Rally 2.0 on the Oculus Store stand-alone version of the game, and is not included with purchase of the game on Steam. The Oculus version provides native support to Oculus devices through the Oculus SDK. The Steam version uses the SteamVR platform to support VR devices. Can I play with Steam players while using the Oculus version, and vice-versa? All versions of DiRT Rally 2.0 provide support for cross-platform asynchronus play (which players can opt out of in their game settings). This includes Leaderboards, Clubs and Community Challenges. Synchronous (as in PvP) Multiplayer is platform-specific. Steam players cannot join Oculus Lobbies, Xbox players cannot join PlayStation Lobbies etc. Does the Oculus version have DLC? The Oculus version contains the same base-game content as other platforms. Post-release DLC content that was available on other platforms will come to Oculus at a later date. Free content (like the DirtFish location and liveries) are available on Oculus at the same time as other platforms. Does the Oculus version have exclusive content? A number of cars feature an exclusive, Oculus-themed livery on the Oculus version. Additional Daily, Weekly and Monthly Community Challenges are available in My Team, exclusive to Oculus players. Will VR come to PlayStation? There are no plans to implement PlayStation VR support for DiRT Rally 2.0. Recommended Settings Based on our tests, these are the settings we recommend to give the best performance boost: Ambient Occlusion: Off Ground Cover: Off Shader: Low Screenspace Reflections: Off Anti-Aliasing: Off Initial Performance (graphics preset; Medium): 60-67 FPS Results after Recommended Settings: Over 90 FPS+ - Medium graphics preset plus all of the above changes. Slightly under 90FPS - Medium graphics preset plus all of the above changes, Shader Detail on High For reference, here was our PC build with which we tested each setting: GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060 CPU: Intel Core i7 6700k, 4.0 GHz Version: Steam (using Oculus headset) Depending on your hardware, PC build & peripherals, and their settings, performance may differ so please experiment with these settings until you find what works best for you. Conclusions These are what we consider high performance savers. Lowering these settings will significantly increase performance (in order of impact): Shaders: Low Anti-Aliasing: Off/CMAA Crowds: Low/Off Ambient Occlusion off Trees, Bloom, Light Streaks, Godrays (These help a lot in areas dense with trees) Shadows: Off (or as low as possible) Ground Cover: Off Screenspace Reflections: Off, lower overall reflections settings too will help. We recommend not using Multisampling (or lower values), it is costly in VR. Supersampling methods from SteamVR would be more beneficial if you can run them. These are low performance savers and won't make much difference if you're using them under Medium, but lowering them all may save a few frames: Vehicle Details (Note: Ultra Low removes drivers and other elements, so use it if nothing else is working for you) Texture Detail Track Night Lighting Objects Chromatic Aberration, Lens Dust Anisotropic Filtering (performance gain is negligible compared to High) With our Recommended Settings and some minor tweaks, performance on Steam should be similar to that of Oculus. We increased our framerate from 60-67 FPS up to 90 FPS+ with the Recommended Settings, using the GTX 1060 in our reference build. If you have a higher-end graphics card you may be able get similar performance with Shader Details set to High and other settings on Low/Off. So long as you don’t increase Multisampling, and ensure you play in Windowed Mode on a reasonable resolution, you should see notable performance gains. VR gameplay will sync to 45 FPS if it drops below 90 FPS, so it's important to keep it the framerate high for a smooth experience. Other Notes On Steam DiRT Rally 2.0 will try to run normal setting configs, typically in fullscreen on higher presets by default. Fullscreen isn't recommended as it can cause issues with performance (upping resolution) and stretch UI elements. We're working on a fix for this in a future update; a workaround for now is to disable fullscreen in the hardware settings: C:\Users\ YOUR NAME HERE \Documents\My Games\DiRT Rally 2.0\hardwaresettings\hardware_settings_config.xml ‘ fullscreen="0” ‘ You can also change the resolution here; another quick way is to change these settings in the flatscreen mode before going into VR. Incase you didn't know, in the Gameplay settings (which can also be accessed via the pause menu) there is a tab for VR Comfort. This contains options for the following: Enable all Views Enable Right Stick Camera Control Enable Looking Back Enable Locked Orientation Enable Motion Blur Full View During Crashes Known Issues The following is a (non-exhaustive) list of known issues with VR: 4x MSAA and higher, combined with Shader Detail set to Low, causing outline effect on trees. Ambient Occlusion set to Low causing shadowy effects on nearby objects. DiRT Rally 2.0 automatically running in VR mode if you have any VR peripherals (including sensors) connected while SteamVR is installed. (This is set to be resolved in version 1.8) Vive HMD resets position slightly behind head. Text being hard to read in SteamVR Pause screens. There are more known issues than this, however many are too minor to post here. As always the team is actively reading the forums to see how you're all getting on with the game.
