    that pure sucks man, you'd have thought that the EADM patch would roll out first then!!! or at least at the same time as Retail....

    Maybe they included the DLC too :)
    Look in the install directory if there's something new in the "packfiles/vehicles" and "packfiles/tracks" folders

    Correct, due to how steam works (or just works with this game) it can't update the files stored inside the .bff files so instead it it has to install the whole .bff instead, hence the size difference between retail and steam version.

    Just wish they'd hurry up with the EADM patch now, appartly it's in testing at EA which is amazing as surely EA test all the patches, so how on earth the EADM (there own service) has been left till last is just :bang:.

    Everyone add me familyvalues2020 I believe is my name or search my gmail which is jonashley69

    Basically I love laguna seca, spa, road america, a little bit of norschliefe and a few other tracks...so thats where we'd be battling it out on track times...everything else to me is meh. ;-)


    PS went from crap to awesome fps on shift2 after some cpu OC'ing and a few different tweaks for performance with driver settings and in game setting...very happy now...multi car races no longer slow down to 20fps.woot!

    Basically you turn shadows to low, pre rendered frames to 1, vsync off, perfomance on the drivers and bam...from 25 to 60fps...happy now.

    In reality, it's cause steam have not get the 1st patch as they have discover problem with it, they have not implement it, so in reality it's the complete 1st patch + hotfix when retail have got the hotfix only this time .

    Anyway i have find the performance increase depend of the race, Laguna Seca have slower performance, but it's still smooth and enjoyable, just framerate is a bit slower..... was so good i have finish the GT1 championship directly... and got this Sumo Power

    Excellent car, after some basic settings ( more break, acceleration, harder surely the best car i have use so far )

    Others report the same thing, it seems to be a random EADM issue (confirmed by the PC devs), but also some report it worked and then check the exe and see it actully didn't.

    If you haven't already check the Shift2u.exe version in the properties tab, it should now be 1.0.1.0 if not the patch didn't apply correctly, if it did patch it then congrats, your one of the lucky few who got it to work.

    The proper EADM patch is still in testing and should be released soon (appartly)

    Just broke my no retail rule on the way home from work, rough week and as girly as it sounds spending money cheers me up.

    Picked up Dead Rising 2 for £9.99, and the Limited Edition of this for £19.99 from GAME, which seemed like a very decent deal, even the console versions were £29.99 in store.

    If your not the impatient buyer that i am, then the website has the console versions for £24.99 which is also a great, and the PC one for £14.99.

    Thankfully i can just register the code on EA Download Manager then sell it off on somewhere like Music Magpie :)
