dirt3 crashing

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
anyone else have problems with it? there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. sometimes it will crash before the game loads, sometimes i can play 5 min, sometimes 20, but it has crashed every time i try playing.

I know this is probably a stupid question, but latest drivers?

Its an issue with DX11 & codemasters. It doesnt appear to affect any two similar systems the same, meaning someone with your exact setup may not have an issue while you do..

If you really want to play the game you can force it to run in DX9 mode...

Quote:
go into your my games folder in "my documents" "dirt 3" "hardwaresettings" edit the config folder using notepad and change the dirext x 11 category to "false"
Other than that the best advice is to go to codemasters forums and report the issue. They may want you to run a bug report on it.

I run it on a nvidia card with the latest and older drivers just fine
