Dirt 3 only has those options? Dirt 2 had a schiit ton of options and was the poster child for AMD DX11 back when it first came out? What did they do to it?

Its the worst port since MGS2 for the PC..

Nfs Rivals, yeh its fairly unoptimized and all, blame the craptacular experience on the crap DICE engine.

The default controls for in game AND the menu are the arrow keys. There are no real graphics adjustments and I had to sign in to xbox.com to play or it wouldn't save. And the menu is letterboxed. Quickest uninstall ever.

Lol

 

when I first saw 'no fov' I thought you were referring to WoT

 

The latest update of WoT kinda reduced Fov to something suitable only for 4:3 screens rather than a FOV that varies by screen ratio.

 

It's an easy fix by editing a file and adding FoV you want, but still. 

 

(they will be adding slider in next HD entire patch rollout though )

AMD 14.1 beta drivers give me BSOD's under certain stress conditions.

 

Nothing big, but it was something the last one had no problems with.

 

This only happens when I'm mining btw. But sometimes while mining, when flash, or other web based media play, it will have a very slight 1s freeze. In other times, the entire computer will BSOD.

 

Obviously, I'm mining so its not the drivers fault,and I am using a beta. But just a note to others.

I haven't played it, but I'd be highly surprised if there's a worse port in recent memory than Deadly Premonition.

 

We're talking about a game that, despite having Xbox 360 icons and clearly being designed for gamepad use due to its console heritage, does NOT actually use XInput, and the DirectInput code is so messed-up that you can't even use the gamepad proper unless you run it in Win9x compatibility mode and sacrifice your framerate in the process.

 

By contrast, Dark Souls was nowhere near as bad of a port; the rendering options were stupidly limited, but at least the controls were console-perfect!

Yup, they broke something to do with OpenCL in the latest beta drivers, just stick to 13.12 for mining.

Whenever you're feeling less lazy, you should look into flashing the BIOS of your GPU's if you want maximum hashes.

Useless for me

 

My mining machine isn't only used for mining, I also don't want my mining settings to be my default settings and or the 'flashed' settings.

Dude what are you smoking? Are you sure you even played Dirt 3 on PC and not Xbox? You don't have to sign into GWFL to play, there are offline saves.

 

No Dirt game ever from the franchise has ever been skimped on in adjustable graphics options, Codemasters don't roll this way and they ain't EA.
