A Reddit user may have discovered how to play the beloved racing title on NVIDIA without random crashing (perhaps could work for AMD as well?).
I’m a sucker when it comes to racing games. Not so much the simulation type, but more so the arcade-y racers with weapons. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, PocketCars, and GRIP are just a few examples. It’s thrilling action that’s almost akin to fighting games. The Wipeout series is another example. It was certainly an excellent IP at its’ core. Anit-gravity racing machines loaded with turrets, mines, EMPs, the whole nine yards, set in a futuristic era.

Second, it claims that you already suck at parking, even though you haven’t even played the game. And yet, I have to admit, true to the name of the game, I suck at parking.

The Steam Racing Fest kicks off this week and lasts till May 30 at 10 AM PST. A great number of racing titles are available at a discount. Native games include: DRAG - 75% off DiRT 4 - 70% off DiRT Rally - 70% off PocketCars - 40% off Road Redemption - 60% off Super Indie Karts - 64% off Steel Rats - 90% off Descenders - 60% off If you don’t mind using Valve’s Proton compatibility layer, there’s the following:
If you have GRID Legends but have been tired of the constant crashing on NVIDIA graphics cards, well, I may very well have a solution to that. The TL;DR of this article is essentially: add dxvk.conf to the game’s installation directory, then add dxgi.nvapiHack = False to get rid of the AMD driver error on launch Use Medium graphics settings or lower to avoid crashes I got GRID Legends as part of my subscription to EA Play.
