well earlier steam said dirt 2 3 hours untill unlock and now its saying 5 hours untill..
this is crap..
Ok, so after re-entering my CD key, being told that I had already activated that product I had to exit Steam, launch Steam again, enter my Dirt 2 CD key a second time. After being told that I had already activated this CD key I then was prompted with the option to install.
As TiWizard said, Dirt 2 does not show up in your games list or show speed/ETA on the download, but it is downloading/installing.
I'll have to check back periodically to see if it's finished.
Thanks for the tip!
how big is the folder?
Open your task manager (ctrl alt del) then go into the Networking tab. When the utilization stops, the download is done.
My Dirt2 folder is 10.5gb.You have to launch the game via the Dirt2.exe in that folder..Game caused a few system restarts and doesnt run as good as the demo so I suspect there may be a few bugs and thats why it got yanked from Steam.
QFT..I even tried forcing it and its not working.Also,I cant seem to log into GFWL because it says my key isnt valid.
yeah i tried forcing afr and sfr, both resulted in huge fps drops. only thing that worked was using SLI AA which gave me 16xQAA. at 1920x1080 max game settings i got 44avg, 32min in the benchmark. not bad but...
I am hoping that it runs fine at 5760x1200. If I have to turn aa off to play it so be it.
Anyone else able to find a "configuration" menu? You know those old menus that come in pretty much every PC game
Exactly the reason I need a menu. I can manually disable it through a config, but I'd rather tweak settings in a menu.
My Dirt2 folder is 10.5gb.
I can't believe with hours to go before release the pub has the authority to demand another two-hr delay... Too close to release for the pub to demand Steam to tinker with it...
Whoever owns the property, (usually the Pub, sometimes the Dev), can do just that depending on their contracts with their distributors. Though, imho, it seems stupid to do so unless there is some major problem, since cracked versions are already on the torrent sites.
just curious, what controllers you guys using to play with? I used to have a wired 360 controller for a pc gamepad, but lost it somewhere in moves. Guess I'm gonna have to get another. I don't have the setup for a don't play from a desk.
I've been using the wired 360 gamepad for a while now, and it's been perfectly fine. But, with Shift and now DiRT2, I'm looking into getting a racing wheel and pedals. Can anyone recommend something under $100 that'll do the job?
