DiRT2 Patch Change Notes

Bug Fixes

Graphics

• Shadow quality setting of “low” is now correctly saved instead of resetting to “medium” Combinations of both high resolutions and high MSAA levels have been restricted on graphics cards with low memory to prevent issues found with those settings
• Added missing function key icons
• Fixed several lighting artefacts in night races
• Fixed missing initial load screen on multi-GPU setups under DX11
• Alt+Tab and Alt+Enter are now better supported under DX11
• Benchmark mode now correctly applies custom settings
• Fixed missing text in benchmark mode pause menu
• Fixed a crash when changing multisampling mode
• Fixed flickering text on stats screen in network mode
• Improved image sharpness in DX9
• Fixes to improve NVIDIA 3D Vision support
• Better default graphics options are chosen when running the game for the first time with a GeForce 8400 GS

Audio

• Fixed an issue where replay music would suddenly cut in when navigating a replay at very slow speeds
• Ensured that OpenAL is properly shut down when exiting the game using Alt+F4
• Prevented reverb cutting in and out abruptly on the Utah tracks

Gameplay

• Fixed player being able to drive through the ground on the Rewang Trailblazer track
• Fixed wall-riding on Battersea routes
• Bug-fixes for LA Stadium, Malaysia Rally and Baja Rally tracks

General

• Fixed a rare crash during the loading sequence
• Fixed an issue in the Russian language version where the default player name is missing from the one-to-watch sequence
• Fixed an issue where loading and saving would fail if multiple controllers were connected
• Fixed a crash which could occur when entering the first race using a motion platform

Changes

• Removed 16x quality coverage sampled anti-aliasing support
• Added support for MS Sidewinder Force-Feedback USB Wheel
• Added support for Logitech Driving Force USB Wheel
• Added support for Logitech Cordless RumblePad 2 USB controller
• Machines with 6 cores will now use the 4-core worker map rather than the single core map

Optimisations

• Optimised shadow rendering
• Optimised CPU performance on machines with SMT and multiple cores
• Improvements to frame-rate fluidity and triple-buffering support


Once it goes live the game should automatically update with the new patch when you start it up via Steam or GFWL.

Which drivers are you using? I switched to the 197.90 Quattro drivers with modded INF and it's fixed the problem with me.

I don't have BC2 sorry.

I believe the 197.90's improved Dirt 2 performance as well (for the 200 series.)

OK,


All this trouble started maybe 2-3 weeks ago.

1) GFW client crashes everytime I start the game



2) Check out how the menu looks like



Anyone know solution?

Nekro -

try going into My docs/my games/Dirt2/hardware settings and delete the hardware settings folder. Re-run the game and setup the settings again.

When I set AA to 16XCSAA (I think) the screen stopped refreshing and I had a similar issue. It was either 16 or 8x I can't remember but one of the AA modes causes the game not work right. I deleted the hardware settings stored there and restarted it.

On the GFWL issue, have you tried to remove and install the 3.3 client? This was released just recently...

WeReWoLf - if it were the drivers it would affect every game.
