Discussion in 'RACE 07 - Official WTCC Game' started by Jamie Valentine, Feb 28, 2009.

  1. Anybody have a link to were I can buy GTR Evo Race 07 on CD DVD so i dont have to use Steam anymore, Steam is the worst piece of crap I ever had to use to run a Sim threw..
  2. Ok didnt know that, thank you for your help :), I need to try something because I cant run the Downloded version anymore threw Steam,, The last Steam update did something to my PC that everytime I start GTR Evo or Race 07 it just loads to the first Simbad Screen then shuts my PC off like you unpluged it..

    I have no problems running GTR 2, IRacing ,Rfactor, and ARCA Sim racing..
  3. Try to start the game not using the shortcut. My shortcut started Windows Media Centre with GTR Evo. I'm only guessing... maybe it helps.
  4. Ok I just came across that if I set the Video resolution in steam for GTR Evo to 800x600 32bit it will run, but and higher res then that it crashes.. I usually run eveything at 1920x1200 32bit..
  5. I'm not sure if Evo supports res that high - I run at 1680x1050 though it may be worth asking some of the other guys with high-def monitors to check if this is the case.

    ive run evo on 3072x768 and 4000x768, cant see there being a major issue with the res.

    Try updating your video card drivers or could also try this and see if you get any results.
  7. Done some more testing and I can run it in 1920X1200 16bit, but not 32 bit,, I ran it on Nvidias 182 drivers before at 1920X1200 32bit but the last steam patch did something crazy to my PC, I installed GTR2 from the CD DVD and no problems at all with all graphic settings to high and everything Maxed out in the game..

    I posted my system specs elsewere in the forum here but ill post them again maybe it will help.

    It should smoke it. Have you tried running it without using SLI or dropping back to Dual-SLI?

  9. LOL Dave " It Did but dont no more " Im running it in 1920x1200 16bit and LOL like 900 FPS it dont look bad but it aint 32bit color..

    And yes I have tried disabling SLI.. but not taking the 3rd card out..

    GTR2 looks SWEET !!!!

    I'm at a loss really on the strength of that. Short of trying a full re-install of the game I got no ideas off the top of my head. I'll post here if I see anything around on my travels.
  11. GTR guys are not the only ones with the problem I have there are alot of other folks with the same problem with other games that run threw Steam that when the last Steam update came out that there screen goes blank and boots to desktop, Mine happens to shut right off like it was unpluged using 1920x1200 res 32 bit.

    And Dave I really like to thank for your help that you have gave me, Much appreciated !!!!
