    Are you sure you have the season pass or just the 2013 content only?

    It should indeed as it contains both the 2013 content and the season pass.

    We still haven't received an answer how to deal with dedicated servers.

    Would be great to run events with DTM E but as of now, no clue how.

    Well, game stuttering badly in single player...and no better AI behaviour.

    PS. Used to have better performance.

    Agree 100%. Many tracks are undrivable. Been like this for quite a while. This game needs to be optimized for triple screens and many tracks need optimized as well. Med settings with trips and 7970 here. Some tracks are fine some are horrible.

    There are a couple settings that have a big effect on performance but once configured properly it runs and looks very good. Many don't understand what is needed and what isn't to get good performance. I'm running triples (5812x1080) with a single GTX 780 without any glitches/slowdowns.
    I don't find ANY tracks that run horribly. There are other threads that touch on the proper settings.

    Will recheck my cubemap and shadows but I have already optimized video settings based on what I have read on the forum.

    During time attack, no graphic problems at all.

    The stuttering appears during single races (16 cars).

    But this is probably my fault (old system). (used not to have this, even in single races).

    Ok. Thanks William. My shadow split was on and it was real noticable at Brands and Moscow.
