1.3.1-20150909232805 XGKICK hack (fixes route map glitching). Plays very well - 60 FPS very easily. Tested on Directx9/11 and OpenGL in hardware mode, all work fine. Graphical glitching in some areas of the game - particularly on the car you drive. (Textures on car look messed up in some parts of it, I don't know if any gamefix hacks fix this particular issue; screen cap attached so you can see the texture glitching on the car, this is from a shakedown run and not an actual rally stage - they appear on rally stages too.) Route Map is glitched and will sometimes show a phantom white line in the route area that isn't actually part of the route (which is fixed with XGKICK hack being turned on).

1.4.0 DX11 Hardware mode ? XGKICK hack fixes glitched minimap. Stable 60fps. Choosing Subaru racecar gives an infinite loading screen. Most car models have glitched textures (some lines are going into the sky). Citroen one is the one with the least glitches. kylgu
