Great A-Ray Scanner detected StarForce I'll *uninstall* and go play the 360 demo instead.

Codemasters just single handedly doomed its success on PC.. (lee63)

Thanks for the screens. I can't wait to give this one a try when I get home!

05-24-07, 12:49 PM
starforce = bye bye sales for the pc version

Ill be getting the x360 one

05-24-07, 01:01 PM
quick youtube video of the demo I made (nevermind the sucky driving)


05-24-07, 01:03 PM
Donīt care about Starforce. PC version (with G25 and TrackIR support :drooling:) and better PQ ftw. Thanks for the screenshots guys!

05-24-07, 01:22 PM
These screenshots don't look as good as the first shots in the "Dirt has never looked so good" thread. What's up?

P.S. How is the force feedback and driving physics?

05-24-07, 01:28 PM

One HD video Starforce free !!

And screens , with shadows in ultra and low and without blur . Look better


1080p in ultra settings without blur

What's up is it's a Codemasters game, that's what - their games never match the screenshots they post during the games development.

Having said that it still looks good...but!

05-24-07, 01:35 PM
Downloading now...ben looking forward to this game :)

05-24-07, 02:36 PM
Do you guys have any good SLI values for this one?
Performance is very bad here at 2560/Ultra without real SLI support. AFR1 doesn't work that good and AFR2 does nothing at all.

Otherwise.... damn good graphics! :D
im downloading now and will try some SLI values once its done.... meanwhile try to rename the main to exe to either richardburnsrally.exe or CMR5.exe

05-24-07, 03:05 PM
Very bad performance, especially while using the ****pit views (cuts my frame rate by around 50%).

The driving model is a joke, I won't buy that game...
Hmm, I get slightly higher framerates in the ****pit view but it's only a difference of 23fps (****pit view) versus 18/19 fps external view. :(

05-24-07, 03:13 PM
Yes try renaming the executable file.

05-24-07, 03:23 PM
Is that with or without SLI?
That's without.

05-24-07, 04:11 PM
I wanted to see how it ran on my system, and here we go. Bloody terrible. Pretty yes, but performance is awful. Laggy as hell, which makes it undrivable.:thumbdwn:

The framerates on 8800gtx SLI systems is hardly scorching, i don't know if its worth downloading for anyone with a 7 or lower series card. And definately do not buy it when it is released with performance this bad. Undoubtedly the performance will be slighly better with the released version, but as it is, its a bit of a mess.

05-24-07, 05:09 PM
What name should I use? Do you have any recommendations?
oblivion.exe :) 80-90% boost

05-24-07, 05:23 PM
There's a weird filter that makes the graphics grainy. It's still fun to drive and I like the ****pit view. Also, the replay controls are nice

Yea I think know what you mean. Its like some parts of the visuals has some sort of dithered look to it. As usual with ati cards the shadows up close are a bit boxy.

The game looks good but on ultra settings I get 10fps and less. ouch! I put shadows on medium, blur off and everything else on high @ 1280x720 res, 2xAA, 8xAF and I get 20 - 30 fps on average except the buggy race which is choppy death for me.

What is with the sepia toning, ugh
