    DirectX 10 games have never looked so good. PCGH posted today a story showing the first S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky DirectX 10 screenshots, and an exclusive 4:31 minutes long in-game footage from CeBIT 2008. The game is running on Windows Vista and video cards from NVIDIA's 9 series, probably GeForce 9800 GX2. If you ask me, this game puts Crysis to shame, and most important it runs smooth!

    wwwooooowwww... purty. Definitely puts crysis to shame, and STALKER DX9 scales so well with multi-gpus, that this game will b a must buy (this really looks just like the movie that the original game was based off).

    Isnt there a DX10 hack for XP/2003? I've never tried it mayself... but understand you get (nearly) all features. Of course, u need a DX10 GPU.

    well, it looks nice, but to put crysis in shame? mmm no, at least no with that screenshots, you cant say that.
    And about the crack for dx10 on XP, i never heard of that, what i know are the mods to some games, to look almost exactly that will do with vista; the most familiar example, are Crysis obviuosly.


    Y wonder if crysis will run smooth with a 9800GT X2

    imo the graphics were fine on the first one....I think they need to focus more on the unique gameplay if they want "clear sky" to stand out from any of the other fps games out there.

    I don't see how a few extra post processing effects puts Crysis to shame, but yeah, it certainly looks nice.
    Mind you, if you take a screenshot of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. with the Float32 mod and motion blur enabled, you can make it look exactly like this.

    Looks good, but better than Crysis? Did you take drugs again? :)

    Also STALKER didn't run smoothly to begin with, so I don't think this one will fare better. Anyway, STALKER is one of my favourites games, but not exactly because its graphics, so I don't care.

    The same, it may be a little faster as server is less of a resource hog, but i doubt there will be any differences, server uses vista 64 bit drivers (well, i do anyway)

    Thats so stupid xp cannot run any driect x 10 apps, direct x 10 is built into Vista.

    The direct x 10 hack for crysis on windows xp dosnt make it direct x 10 it just adds missing featires that directx 9 can use which are the same as some driect x 10 features.

    So in effect you think it is directx 10 but its really 9 with some added features.

    THIS GAME BETTER PLAY GOOD ON MY 8800gt

    Last I heard the Alky project fell through and said it couldnt be done because of something that Vista has that XP lacks. I dont know exact details. I saw someone post it on here not long ago.

    Yeah, this isn't for Crysis. It's for Windows. As you can see, I run XP. And DX10 is detected.

    The screenshots didn't impress me at all and this game can't be compared to Crysis according to the screenshots because if we compare according to screenshots STALKER desapear "crysis is the game of the future" IMO...
