crash after splash screen(s)

Recommended Posts

Hi, i have problem with like all codemasters games I have.

So i got Dirt: Rally (1.0), Race driver: Grid, Grid 2 and Grid: Autosport (3)

First, i got to global league in grid with no problems (well, the game haven't gave me an option to choose 1920x1080 resolution, but quick fix in files gave me that option back)

Than i got Dirt: Rally with humble thing, they basicly gave the game for free. So it was the first time the problem accured. It crashed without any crash message after splash screen. I got it to work in windowed mode a few times (but than i had to change to fullscreen in settings) but after sometime (like after 3 races) it just ignored -windowed command and was going in fullscreen. (and crashing after Dirt logo) I've got mad and never really started it again.

But now i decided to buy Grid 2 and Grid: Autosport, its the same problem like Dirt.
I've tried to:
set my resolution in hardware_settings_config (it was like 1182x620 - <resolution width="1920" height="1080" aspect="auto" fullscreen="true" vsync="1" multisampling="2xmsaa">
            <refreshRate rate="75" /> )

make the game force directx 10 (<directx forcedx10="true" />)

delete it and reinstall

check the integity of the game

delete first hardware_settings, than whole My Game forder

something in windows registry

(nothing helped)

My system:

GPU: Palit RTX 2060 GamingPro OC 6gb GDDR6
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 OC @ 4.1 GHZ (all cores)
Cooler: BeQuiet! Dark Rock 4
RAM: Adata XPG Spectrix D41 DDR4 16GB 3000Mhz Cl16
Motherboard: MSI B450 Tomahawk
Power Supply: Thermaltake Smart RGB 700W
Drives: SSD Adata XPG SX8200 PRO 256 GB (main) + Seagate 2TB (for games - where i installed all 3)
Operating system: Windows 10 Professional v.1909

Edit 1: trying to open the game with fullscreen="false" but it just crashed it instantly after splash screen (no error message again)

Is your monitor running on 75hz refresh rate? You can use ALT+TAB to change the mode from fullscreen to windowed and the other way around, if that helps, even though I doubt it does.

You could probably get more help and easier by creating a Technical Assistance thread to the DiRT forums about DR1.

Hey there - please ensure that you're running up-to-date drivers and other hardware/software. We're not seeing any cross-game reports right now that could be causing this but will keep a close eye on it. Thank you 🙂

All drivers im using are up to date

also, grid 2 and grid autosport have multiple threats about this and im pretty sure its connected.

when im getting in i cant do anything, and yes my monitor is running on 75 hz.
