using avx.exe crashes my ivy

also i prefer to use dx10, i can´t really notice dx11 stuff and y prefer dx10 + 4xmsaa 60fps perfect over dx11 + mlaa with stutter

really dx11 what does in these games? all i can see is a little better illumination, the sun has more power in dx11, that is all

Well I've noticed than in some games the lighting looks a little better with DX11. But I think the main selling point is the Tessellation right?

sure, but i am talking on codemasters racing games engine with dx11

for me dx11 has little impact on graphics in dirt/grid and a lot impact on FPS

Ah yeh it probably wont do a lot in grid. Tessellation is not really all that important in a game like this. No time to stop and appreciate the scenery lol...

It's weird that I don't benchmark option in the graphics option selection area. Can anyone help?

I've been playing a lot of DIRT 3, and was thinking about picking this up. How do the cars handle compared to DIRT 3? I'm not big on racing games, but since I've been playing DIRT 3 a lot, I'm getting the itch to try out more racing games.

grid2 is like dirt3 when the car is on asphalt

and yes, the game is fun, handling is nice (arcade, not real), so it´s fun

the only bad are the repetitive tracks, this is the same in every codemasters game, they are cheap on track

when in the windowed mode press the Alt key and Enter and it should put you into a full screen mode and that works with all games on pc.

Well i've been playing this for 3 days, i'ts entertaining enough, altough i'm not overly impressed.
But there is something that I really hate in this game, and it's the sound.
Since ps one games that I had not played a game with such unrealistic and repetitive sound.
They didn't even include some music to save the royalties money, really?rolleyes.gif
And there isn't an option to turn off all sound in-game so you can listen to your own music ( have to do it via windows mixer).

Yeah, sound could be way better and ad alot to the experience, but they really didn't care much about it.

I wish I had my ps2 working so I could go listen to gran turismo...

Good game anyway, for an arcade racer.
