Re: Dirt 3 is freezing at loading screen

In order to figure out the root cause of the problem I want to know which operating system do you have installed? Let me know about the hardware configuration of the computer? In which mode you are getting the issue whether in Online or Offline? In which car you are getting the above mentioned error? So answer the above mentioned question as early as possible. I am waiting for the prompt replies of yours.

I think you need to do some modification with the config file of this particular game. Well you need to look for the ‘hardware_settings_config’. You can find the above mentioned file into the My Documents / My Games / Dirt 3 / Hardware Settings folder. Here you have to done following modification.
Code:
<directx forcedx9="false"/>
to
Code:
<directx forcedx9="true"/>
After doing the same you will not crash the game at all on the computer of yours. so try the same and let me know about the results.

Let me know which version of DirectX do you have installed on the computer? Well I think this particular issue is being happening due to out of dated version of the DirectX. So I recommend that you should simply visit the official website and download the latest version of the DirectX. Once you have completed with the downloading you should simply install and reboot the computer of yours. after doing the same you should try to play the game on the computer.

I am suspecting that problem which you have mentioned over here is happening due to graphic card driver issue. Well I am suggesting that you should visit the official website of the graphic card manufacturer and look for the latest version of the graphic drivers. You should install the same on the computer of yours and then you should simply reboot the computer of yours. I am hoping that installing the latest version of the graphic card driver would be useful to you.

Do you have reinstalled the game on the computer? well if your answer is no than I recommend that you should uninstall the game on the computer of yours then you should reboot the computer and then you should make an attempt to install the game on the computer. once you have completed with the installation of the game you should restart the computer. now you should try to play the game after reinstalling the game.

Re: Dirt 3 is freezing at loading screen

The problem which you are getting might be causing due to bug issue. So I recommend that you should contact the developer of the game that is Codemasters to resolve the matter of yours. Well you need to file a bug report to the developer of the game. the developer of the game would fix the bug from the code of the game and release the patch after fixing the bug.
