DiRT Rally GOL League - Group B Extended Season
Xpander commented on 9 May 2018 at 5:22 pm UTC

So, finished the rest now. I was really flying, except on the last stage where i made a mistake.

S3: Clean
S4: Clean
S5: Clean
S6: Crash into barrier, reverse needed


5th stage was my fav, won 16sec over muell there, last 2 sectors specially, got into nice flow and my setup was perfect for those corners there.

anyway, managed to won this by small margin, even though i lost 23 sec on the first 2 stages

completed Greece though not without its trials, Dirt was micro stuttering for me constantly which made cornering far more of a challange than it usually is for me.

Cant work out whats causing it though as the stutter didnt exist when I have done previous races. I tried changing Nvidia driver from 396 series to 390; no difference and moving from kernel 4.15 to 4.16 also made no effect. Hopefully I can figure it out for next week.

I'm imagining the stutters appeared for me sometime in the last 3 driver updates, so it might be worth a try to move back to 390.12 or 390.25 if you can be bothered. For what it's worth, I'm still on 4.14.

Greece was indeed a trial, as I seemed to really want to jump off the edge at several points along the routes. The S4 is a powerful beast though, and I managed to get back on track on every occasion without getting the 15 second penalty. Felt like I climbed back up a nearly vertical hill one time!

I just did the last two stages myself. When I had the patience to go really easy on the throttle, I managed relatively decent runs. The best ones were only a few seconds off the fastest time. That said, I never really felt like I was in control of the Lancia, but I guess being tired and distracted didn't help. At least I managed to end my DNF streak.

Driver 396.24 and kernel 4.15 here. The game is butter smooth, even with the new shader compiler.

EDIT: I've got full composition pipeline enabled and v-sync off.

buttersmooth here also, i dont remember having issues with stuttering ever. And i have been using lots of drivers with this game, only the segfaults i got with the 396.18.xx point release drivers. Stuttering probably is caused by something else.

currently on 396.24 and kernel 4.16.7-zen

Upgraded from 4.14.29 to 4.14.39 and driver 396.18 to 396.24 and driving felt a lot smoother yesterday.

Xpander commented on 19 May 2018 at 1:39 pm UTC

UK done, No major mistakes, but i think i was driving more carefully also, did not take risks. Setup worked really really good also.

Summary:
S1: Clean
S2: Spin with reverse
S3: Clean
S4: Clean
S5: Clean
S6: Clean

First post updated.

What happened to muell? ragequit? i could swear i saw his time for the first stage, 5.59, but then it dissapeared.

Xpander commented on 24 May 2018 at 5:04 pm UTC

Finland done. Enjoyed quite a bit. left the gearbox setup default and rarely used 5th gear, mostly flatout on 4th gear. Probably should have changed it a bit.

S1: Clean
S2: Trip to the Fields
S3: Spin at high speed (damn bushes)
S4: Clean
S5: Clean
S6: Clean

Hi guys,

Is it possible to join the league halfway through the season, or should I wait for the next one?

Steam/Codemasters name is also Fakeman Pretendname.

Many thanks
