    Anyone else really looking forward to DiRT 3? I know the Bit-Tech review wasn't massively full of praise for not being a huge step forward from dirt 2, but I enjoyed dirt 2 and more rallying, dynamic weather and more multiplayer options are exactly what I want.

    As dirt 3 is coming out on Tuesday I thought I'd start a thread for it. To help with technical issues and setup as well as to discuss other aspects of the game.

    There are a lot more multiplayer options so if anyone wants to swap user names (Codemasters insist on using the wonderful Games for Windows Live) then I'll keep a list of user names updated in this post.

    I am. I pre-purchased yesterday on Steam.

    I'm not too worried about Bit-tech's review.

    I worked out long ago that the games Bit-tech likes and the games I like are very rarely the same.

    i only installed it yesterday but i'm yet to play it, witcher (and then witcher 2 of course) is keeping me busy atm :D

    and little offtopic, is anyone else trying to justify buying a G27 when they don't play racing games that often ?

    Q: What if I only want to do Rallying and Rallycross and really don't want those shitty menu systems? Can I just do that?

    I must say my Thrustmaster F430 wheel works great with it and also good that you can navigate the menus without the need of mouse/keyboard, everything can be done via the wheel.

    No need for complicated setups the wheel was recognised and became the default controller automatically.

    I might get this for the 360 [GFWL just will not work work for me]... really enjoyed the original... didn't play #2 though... is there much of a difference between #1 and #2/3?

    I hate using steering wheels with Codemasters games. They just don't provide a satisfying experience, it doesnt feel like your connected to the car, unlike Simbin titles which give good feedback. I own a G27 and although I like it a lot I really don't think its worth the huge price tag. A cheap force feedback wheel is good enough for arcade racers as you'll not really need the clutch and H shifter of a g25/27.

    I got it working in the end too and its a great game. I love the snow!

    I also tried to get the car park working but live tells me that there is a download but when I go to downloads, I am told there aren't any.

    No matter. The game is great!

    Just played a few races, but have an exam tomorrow so should try and focus on that. Game seems really great at the moment, the graphics look much better.
