That option may refer to Multi Sample AA
There will be no optimisations in this game like there was none in any of the patch releases for crysis, EA/CRYTEK talk bull, this is a get the game out the doors as quick you can release to cash in all the muppets who will pay good cash for a mod.
Suposedly Psycho (Sergeant Sykes) has personal mods applied to his suit, that will give some special abilities or change how tha known ones work. In reality every member in the squad has mods applied to the suit probably, except Nomad that was new. Well, the doctor Rosenthal mods Nomad's suit at the end of the first game, and Prophet mods his himself in order to use the alien gun, so it's clear the suit can be easily modified and squad members have the required knowledge to do so in the middle of a campaign. In the end, the suit uses nanotechnology to make you stronger, faster, invisible... It can do anything you want in theory.
So your running 4xAA? in the screens you posted?
I think that those different 4x and 8x AA modes refer to 12x and 24x CFAA respectively. AFAIK 12X/24X CFAA are not really 12x and 16x MSAA, just like Nvidia's CSAA.
It's pretty obvious in the screenshots that a high level of AA is being used.
Is'nt msaa multi sampled anti aliasing?
Details here on CFAA/MSAA with ATI 48XX cards: http://enthusiast.hardocp.com/article.html?art=MTUzMiwxLCxoZW50aHVzaWFzdA==
Exactly what I meant, except I said 16x and was 24x, and I knew it was 24x.
4x (whatever that is). I changed it to 4xMSAA and really didn't see any difference. Small increase in frame rates 0.XX FPS but that could be anything...still looking into that.
Difference of 0.6 FPS
I can max out this silly thing on a 4870 but its basically the same 20-30 fps as the first one maxed out with no AA @ 1920x1200. If they called this optomized then they're pushing it, alot. I can only imagine how this will eat lower cards just like the first bloody game.
Thanks guys! That was a quick and simple responce! I wanna get the game soon and see how it does on my PC. I was able to run the first all high at 1280 X ___ and get playable FPS. I hope im now able to up the rez. to be at native for my monitor 1680 x 1050 =). I have a C2D E6750 @ 2.8, 4 (2x2 Gig. DDRII 800mhz @ 840), 8800GT 512 SC EVGA
I'm about to grab this on steam.. Anyone think I can max it fine?
Yes, I've almost beat the game. 2GB+Vista=Fail...I've been had by this game. On another note, for people saying this game will be just as "crappy" as the first gameplay wise, your gonna miss out big. This game is INTENSE...Intense my friends!
Quick question: anyone know if Far Cry 2 will be available on Steam also?
I bought the game on Steam this morning, but I can't download it. I know release date for Europe is tomorrow, but I thought you could start downloading them before launch. Worked with GTR Evolution, why not with this? Anyone with same problem?
I'm not going to be able to play the game til next week with my crappy DSL.
Roughly 0.9 FPS difference here even though the sunlight isn't in the exact same spot.
game looks great, will dl overnight, play in the morning.
Just bit the bullet and bought it. Hope it runs good on vHigh if not high
hope I can run it on very high
Its looking like it mite be crysis the lemon strikes back,so i mite give this a miss.
I heard crossfire doesnt work with it yet :shadedshu
