DiRT Rally Update - Version 1.03

Recommended Posts

Hi all, and happy Tuesday! At just gone 11am today, we released a patch for DiRT Rally. Here's a rundown of the patch notes:

  • Performance when Weather is set to Low should improve.
  • Leagues will now use a set of stock engineers. The option to use Career Engineers as an option will be going live on the website later today.
  • There are various tweaks and fixes for the audio in Sweden.
  • Rallycross tracks have been allocated more memory, to prevent cases where they forget to load.

Anything with regards to being able to setup your car in league events now?
Looks like it's in, now that website is up for those wondering. Time to rally! Now for further league functionality like archive results, individual stage times and so on. I live in hope.

Error 41 is typically a client driver issue, graphics or sound drivers, it can also be a disk space issue.  However, you can also try this;

Find your Dirt Rally install folder.
Delete the files and folders within that folder, but leave the Dirt Rally folder in place.
Run a verify cache in Steam.

Please note, that for some reason, this is not the same as asking steam to uninstall and reinstall the game, and has been found to fix a few issues on several peoples machines that i know of, including mine.

It can also be an issue with subscribing to too many workshop items, too many modded skins at once, a modded skins PSSG archive or texture format being a little bit off...

Basically, Error 41 can be just about anything.

That's because Steam doesn't delete any modified files when you uninstall. If there are some corrupted files, that cause problems, Steam will see those as modified, you have to delete them manualy. After that reinstalling should have the same effect as the method you mentioned.

Whilst possibly true, in my experience this was not the case.  Asking Steam to delete local content removed the install folder as well, and i had custom files there, no additional files, just replaced ones.

Do'nt choose uninstall, carry out the instructions as i stated above please.  You will not lose your save game info, it's stored in another location.

My game stopped starting today (wasn't home yesterday). Is there any way to just remove the workshop files? Nothing else was changed and I am not that happy about downloading 20GB of data (again).

Yes. Nothing to be worried about, you have the latest version. Well... as long as you are connected to the internet, with steam running... and you did not switch off automatic updates for DiRT :)
