    The game runs much faster in DX9 which is strange because in the beta DX10 was faster then DX9.

    That's with everything turned on exept HBAO.

    It drops my fps pretty hard so I just leave it off cause I really can't see that big of a visual difference.

    true, i don't see much of a visual difference. but the fps drop went away with the release for me. it was horrible in the beta, but it's gone now.

    what is still there for me, is the flickering on water. no longer on guns, and not as constant, but still flickering every once in awhile.

    Guys this game is AWESOME (Single player).

    ps it is not bug free, however haven't found anything totally game breaking.

    2 ps HBAO is off for me because it eats frames for breakfast (probably lack of vram at 1080p and everything on High and AF x8 AA x1).

    I cant wait for this game to release. After my stint in the army, I tried so hard to find games that might let me relive some of those days. The only thing I try to stay away from are ones where My team mates Die in gruesome ways before my eyes. I witnessed my own battlebuddy when I was in get his head blown off 3 feet from me. I dont want to relive that.

    Well who cares about DX 10 anyway. Most of us will be running in DX 11.

    DX9 doesn't support AA, that's a reason enough to go DX10 if the rig can handle it.

    :slap: for all you having the game already, mine hasn't even left this way yet :( Oh well enjoy :toast:

    Yeah Steam says 2 days and 4 hours right now. Probably a good thing.

    Are there any perks to playing the single player, like getting a new weapon in multi player or not?

    Usually they are two separate entities as pre ordering is what gives you multiplayer stuff.

    yeah, i was never interested about dx10 anyway, but i am about dx11 so i'll buy a 5770 (for 129 eur in pixmania, its 20-30 eur cheaper compared to the other stores)

    yeah i know ;) you can do your own pre-load that way!

    install the game into the directory steam would create, then when you are able to start the steam download you can just have it check the directory, it will see all the files there and jump to 99%, done in minutes.

    The flickering on the water is not a bug its a crossfire driver issue with the game. We are still waiting for ATI to catch up and bring out a driver or crossfire profile.


    @ PVT is that newsgroups?
