306 Maxi.....One of the most beautiful rally cars ever :) The sound of the engine suggest endless power..... and there is lot of power :)
The painting fits totally on this car and i love it to drive it!
Can remember the time when this beauty appears and it caused that the 4wd drivers wondered a lot about it. Panizzi was the killer in this car ;)

Anyone having a problem stuck at the 'press enter' screen? (in VR) framerate goes to about 5 on the codemasters splash screen then I'm stuck have to alt f4. Only just got the game using steam VR. I got on once was a bit of a vomit fest tbh. Any help appreciated.

Anyone else has problem with framerates after VR update? I can't play anymore (single screen), despite it shows up to 80fps keeps kinda freezing second to second, reinstalled game and drivers, nothing helps, makes me sick...

For the stuck on splash screen: Are you making sure that Steam VR is launched before launching the game?

That's insane. I wonder if all the R&D went to the heads and valvetrain or if it had a weird way to increase torque in the entire rev range.

Yes it's launched, apparently they are adding open with oculus next week so I'll just wait and see. Thanks

Ah well, this is all a blast from the past the 306 GTi-6 road car was one of my favourites, I owned 3 of them in the row.

The Ibiza Kit Car was a great car to drive in Rally Championship 2000 and follow ons, especially on the Manx rally as we've mentioned in the recent WRC 8 threads.

Great to read the news that native Oculus rift is on the way to Steam, as long as the VR works well I will pick up the latest DLC.

I ended up buying the oculus version because of the awful VR on the Steam version
Any news as to when the oculus version is getting some of the DLC?

Yeah, it works. Good news Oculus Rift users via Steam, the native Oculus launcher has been added and Dirt 2.0 now runs perfectly well in VR on Steam.

Here's some second screen capture from a quick run I tried earlier. The Steam FPS counter is in the top right-hand corner. I don't know why Dirt 2.0 is outputting in 'both eyes' mode to the second screen, I couldn't see an option in-game to change it and didn't have time to work it out! This should still do to show all the stutter when moving your head left and right is gone and the game holds a steady 45fps throughout (those occasional dips to 41-43 fps on screen are not visible inside the headset).

All settings high, 9900K with 1080Ti, it's now fully playable and feels superb imo.

It's worth remembering that previously, via Steam VR, I could only just get the game to run at all on Ultra-Low settings. The improvement is huge and DR2.0 now runs as well as any other game in VR from what I can see.


Codies just sold themselves some DLC :)

Bought the Steam version because I refused to reward the BS pulled, I was able tweak it to run decent. This is just gravy on top now.

Steam version runs much better now with Oculus SDK support. Day and night difference (1080ti, Rift S)

It's pretty great now. But I'm still not gonna spend 30€ for the remaining 2 re-warmed stages. Next Steam sale at the earliest
