I have it ready but xml is not a valid upload file on tpu.

If what follows doesn't suffice then pm me your email and I'll send it :)





Edit, btw I just ran a benchmark on full settings:

Interesting, I was playing around with it last night and here's one i found on the net and is supossed to be "very high"!! but is diffrent to yours when you replace it some of the options in game come up as "coustom". and i got a few options i didn't think i had. Ill try your yours tonight, anyway heres what I was looking at lastnight:

I don't think you can just copy the xml from someone using a 5 series card, due to dx11? I dunno?

"directx...forcedx9" is what will prevent DX10/11 from being used.

Also "crowd...tesselation" (obviously won't work on anything except DX11).


Edit: I find this line the most interesting:
Code:
<threadStrategy parallelUpdateRender="true" workerMapFile="system/workerMap8Core.xml" forceFeedbackProcessor="6" dvdStorageProcessor="7" dataSetMonitorProcessor="4" renderProcessor="0" updateProcessor="2" fileStreamProcessor="5" />
Judging by the numbers on my computer compared to the other two posted--the numbers there are the affinity for each thread. e.g. Force Feedback will end up on core[6], DVD Storage will end up on core[7], Render will end up on core[0], Updates will end up on core[2], etc.


workerMap2Core.xml, workerMap4Core.xml, workerMap8Core.xml are also quite interesting. If someone wanted to take the time, making a 3Core map would benefit those with tri-core processors. The only difference between 2 and 4 is 2 puts audio on core1 at below normal priority. That's a very minor change.


Edit: Wait a minute...

From 4Core:
Code:
  <workerThread name="core_0_high" priority="abovenormal" core="0" stacksize="131072" />
  <workerThread name="core_1_high" priority="abovenormal" core="1" stacksize="131072" />
  <workerThread name="core_1_below_normal" priority="belownormal" core="1" stacksize="131072" />
  <workerThread name="core_0_normal" priority="normal" core="0" stacksize="131072" />
  <workerThread name="plugin_finalise_1" priority="abovenormal" core="1" stacksize="131072" />
  <workerThread name="visibility_task_1" priority="normal" core="1" stacksize="131072" />
  <workerThread name="gc_01" priority="abovenormal" core="0" stacksize="32768" />
  <workerThread name="gc_02" priority="abovenormal" core="1" stacksize="32768" />
Quoting troyrae360:
Code:
<threadStrategy parallelUpdateRender="true" workerMapFile="system/workerMap4Core.xml" forceFeedbackProcessor="3" dvdStorageProcessor="3" dataSetMonitorProcessor="1" renderProcessor="3" updateProcessor="3" fileStreamProcessor="3" />
See the problem? 4Core is coded to only use two cores (core0, core1) and the hardwareconfig file confirms it is in fact only using two cores (core[1], core[3]). There is a bug here because 8Core shows core0-7 as it should. If I am seeing what I am seeing, that means Dirt2 is limited to 2 cores on a 4 core system.

Ok Im gonna throw a spanner in the works, there are also 2 other files that should be looked at and edited, Here is a set of 3 xml codes that are suposed to make dx9 version look alot better.

Watch me LOL

audio was removed though because it was "copyrighted" LOL

I should have just turned off the music in the first place, so you can still hear the rumbling. But at least you won't get to hear me going a gear down too much (4th to 3rd to 2nd instead of 4th to 3rd only lol).

i like the game but.... codemasters STILL hasnt fixed controller support yet

i go to options manually configure the game to use my controller go to multiplayer etc it resets to defaults... so i have to race with the keyboard or let the ai drive for me as i change all the settings AGAIN this is pretty piss poor design for a racing game when 10 controllers work and they shaft the rest for no reason

If it's on an AMD rig make sure Direct X is up to date, Chipset drivers are installed and that you downloaded the USB/NB Filter/SB Filter drivers from AMD's site.
