    I haven't played online yet, that was single player, most impressive computer times ever. That race you also start staged out, so I wasn't able to see them if I would have been able to I would have called even more BS.

    Can someone find me the DiRT2 icon in .png form and preferably at least 128x128. I already tried my best with the small .ico file but whatever I do it would still appear quite pixelated. I started using Circle Dock a week ago, and I had to make do with a generic "racing" .png icon for DiRT2.

    With those 'nasty' ATI drivers you sometimes need to do a 'proper' uninstall (driver cleaner pro in safe mode). :p

    On a more serious note, Im a bit anal about my driver upgrades and I do that EVERYTIME with my Nvidia stuff and did it in my ATI days as well.

    See you on the Battlefield, or in Dirt2! :toast:

    Why not just use whatever you want? I don't mind the Dirt 2 Icon, but if you got photoshop or even paint will allow you to scale, just won't be as nice.

    Here's some images that would make for nice icons

    I think any of those would be better than the original one. But if you do want the original logo, here is is. I can't get you it in png form as I don't have photoshop installed right now, so you will have tu cut out the background yourself. But I still vote that top icon is the best, and it's in png with no background already.

    Just to bump the thread, I left all my other games to play dirt2, it is realy funny....

    ... with a joooooystiiiiiiick LOL

    What is disturbing is the accent they lay on 1) custom paint (I dont care) 2) bloody items to have inside your car, like bears, ducks, skulls, whatever... Are the designers serious? In my car I don't have no fucking distractions, for the win :)

    Well level 23 now in 2 days

    Ive been playing on serious with arrow keys, but i have fast fingers and slide perfectly.

    Love the game.

    Ive gotten in the most rediculas crashes.

    Yesterday, I hit a little mound, shot me in the air, I literally did 2 perfect barrel rolls flying in the air like a eagle, i landed, I taped emergency break, and it didn't need to slide back on track, I literally, pulled out a burnout paradise trick in dirt 2 :toast:

    I love going 155-160 in a trail blazer!!!!:toast:

    I kinda find this game a bit easy.. I play on the difficulty with 1 flashback, and with damage.. without damage is sooo easy o_O is it just me? I'm not bad in sports and racing games (except F1 2010) but I ain't that good either

    Yeah, I can't think of any game that looks better than this. I don't play too often anymore but when I do I always seem to find myself surprised on how good the graphics look. I can't wait to play it on my TV again once my HTPC is up and running again.

    I've been away from TPU too much.
    Didn't even know there was a DiRT 2 thread.
    I've been playing it a lot.

    I'm probably something in the 30's with the current tournament not that I am going to get first with the kind of "legit" racers out there.

    The name is Applique D2 in Dirt 2.

    No cheating, just fair play with the odd connection lag and some cursing when it happens :)

    I would if I knew when that was -_-"

    The raly 350z is one of the most used by te fastet drivers in GRID.
    I personally prefer the Group N over it but still can get very good time is the 350z too.

    Otherwise the 350z is average in everything else.

    Sometimes I can get through a race or two, but it locks the game up (I can ctrl+alt+del out of it) usually during play (not map loading). I need to try it out again since I just got a new soundcard...
