    Hey guys I finally got around to installing the full version of dirt 2 (rather than just the demo) and the damn thing keep crashing (in dx11 mode) everytime you move from outside into the trailer!? has anyone seen this before? I had a quick google search but couldn't find anything other than a couple of youtube videos of guys having the same issue.

    I really don't want to run in dx9 if i dont have to.

    Whats up with that?

    I have a 5850 but no cf, but might sound stupid but how can you tell what mode its running in dx9 or dx11? is there a place to change it? Dragon

    if you set everything ot ultra then you're running dx11, if you're running anything below that, its dx9.

    This problem is really frustrating because since ive only just started the game i have no saves yet...so it goes through telling you how to play the game for the first time and as soon as you move from outside into the trailer it crashes and i have to reset.

    So how can i change my settings without launching the game? theres gotta be a cfg file somewhere right?..
