Dirt Rally 2 stuttering every 2/3 seconds

Question

Posted (edited)

Hi

Since buying Dirt Rally 2 (dr2) I've not been able to play it because every 2ish second I get a micro stutter. I am a windows game programmer, so I understand about bug testing and narrowing the issue down to find where the problem is.

I've done loads of testing, changing resolution, graphics setting testing and it seems its an issue with USB input controllers being connected to the system. Obviously not all, as some seem not to have this issue.

Please can you look at this issue. Thankyou.

Yes, it is indeed related to USB input as you've discovered with the rest of us. This was present in the first game too, all the way from early access to present day. It was never fixed. Codemasters are once again saying they're looking into it but don't hold your breath. I followed this issue with the first game closely and Codemasters basically went quiet after a while. I firmly believe they are unable to fix it and just stalling for time to prevent as many refunds of 2.0 as possible. I refunded 2.0 immediately when I found the same problem was carried over to 2.0 and I recommend everyone affected by this to do the same, if they still can. I find it very unlikely that this will ever be fixed. It's infuriating that we all have to troubleshoot and spend time on this when Codemasters have been aware of the problem for ages. They're charging AAA money for a game with an engine they know can't even handle USB-input properly and not informing customers about this. It's unacceptable.

Yes, its just not right at all.makes this sim

undriverble. Please tell me how to contact CM directly, then I promise I will get this matter fixed....

I do have form in getting big software companies to act/ even change thier minds on content inclusion.

Was envolved with Microsoft flight sim. basically after 20 years and new releases every 2 years in the year 2000 they took the feature to fly using the mouse, effectively making it unusable by houndreds of thousand of people, both disabled, like me, and vurtually every mobile laptop user not wanting to buy a joystick to carry around with them.

So I first wrote some software to put mouse flying back in, then got on the beta team, showed them the thouseds of emails support for enabling the feature, then, very proud, got them to reinstate it in all subsequent versions.

Anyway, just told you so you know how focued I cn be.

Sorry for late reply, had no knowlege you'd replied. Please if you know someone with this issue to get behind me on this.

Thanks mate.

Dirt Rally 2.0 disconnects my keyboard every few seconds and this results in stotters. I'm disconnecting the keyboard while playing and at least i don't need it in the game. Since the update i also have to dis- and reconnect my Ascher Racing buttonplate and the HE sequential shifte to use it, but this is just another problem with the game and it lists the devices but ignores inputs.

I reinstalled windows , added a new motherboard, and changed my wheel base to a Fanatec podium DD1 and game now does exactly this... its quite noticeable especially if you have freesync/gsync on ,games is unplayable atm, has anyone have a workaround for this issue ? btw i have several simulators that have no issue whatsoever so its definitely only in Dirt 2.0..

There's a trick that stops the game using the 1st core, allowing the other programs to use it. Stops corner stuttering and speeds up stage loading times if you have an SSD. It might work

 

Load DiRT Rally

 

Open Task Master,

 

Goto Details.

 

Find DiRT Rally, right click and select Affinity.

 

Delselect CPU 0.
