Forums  /  DiRT: Showdown  /  Short loading time

Hey shred, I just want to ask a question.
What's your tactic about shorting the loading time between races and menu?
For me, it's loading a lot, 5-7 sec or something, and i don't know how to reduce my loading time like yours. 🙁
Thanks for answering me if you will.

Hey TheSkatingGelemb.
I assume you are talking about the PC version.
To be 100% honest, I don't recall doing anything to my PC. Maybe lowering in-game video setting might help a little bit. Also try playing the game with not as many other programs running.
In the end, I guess it's mainly has to do with your PC specs, sadly. Sorry

I tried playing the lowest in-game video settings and with not many other programs running, only the game and the OBS, but the loading time didn't reduce. Did you install the game in SSD or in HDD? Also, what's your pc specs?


I can't answer that question atm. Maybe in a couple of hours


Sorry for taking a while.

The most recent thing that I done (Unlocking 'All Star' Series) was played and recorded on a HDD. But I am fairly certain that I done some recording of the game on a SSD with some of my earlier stuff (Any%, Joyride, All Hidden Packages) (some of the files were moved onto another drive)

As for PC specs, this is what I got:

OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro

System Type: 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6400 CPU @ 2.70GHz 2.70GHz

Installed Memory: 16.0GB

And what's your GPU?


NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960


I think having the game on an SSD matters the most.
