    they were having a lot more fun with BBC's camera crew last night.... I cant believe they were attacked.

    No one knew what was going on in tottenham for the last 10hrs as side from witness's calling in to the BBC/radio and giving the witness eyeviews of what was going on.

    IMO. there are a lot of people in Tottenham that bare a lot of hatred and animosity towards the police. bust they wouldnt have the guts to put on the show that happened last night.

    3 burnt out police cars. more then 4 burnt down buildings. and bus that has been completely burnt to the ground thats probably not even worth its weight in scrap metal.

    Rogue Traders LOL I missed spelt it Rouge Traders.
    Also im not proud of the rioters. There's better ways to get something rather than go primal and smash everything up and im from Glasgow so i know a thing or 2 about being an idiot :laugh:
    I lol'd at how it started as people wanting answers for a death and now its "Ow this is symptoms of a disenfranchised society".

    There's tension in Tottenham with the police a lot of people still remember the riots that happened years ago.
    Glad your place didn't burn to cinders last night Freedom and yeah i saw the BBC newsreporter getting shoved around last night after saying "why are you trying to block the camera?" then there where some black dudes pushing the camera.

    The loot stolen in Tottenham is believed to be sold on the black market.
    Irony at its best.

    The atmosphere at the Emirates Stadium is said to electrifying, but apparently White Hart Lane is on fire...

    If i coulda gatherd together a few scotsman last night. I would have painted half of my face blue and charged the line of riot police and mounted horsey police and screamed "FREEEEDDDDOOOMMM!!!!"

    Or maybe i should have went out there looking for a fight dressed as a spartan.... hmmmm.

    Note to self... get a spartan outfit....


    Or batman even.....

    that would be hilarious.

    Id kick the shit out of the looters while the riot police would be kicking the shit out of me

    I love those Hobgoblin Beers its like 4 for £5 in Lidl so its £1.25 a bottle and that's a pint a bottle. I don't know anywhere you can get a decent pint of ale for £1.25, lovely stuff.

    Hows Tottenham looking Freedom?

    It appears that Freedom is still stuck in a cave without electricity. I heard protests are moving towards White City, and Westfield is getting stoned (literally).

    Thats a maybe, though looting, destroying properties, assaultings etc are way out of line and it's just an excuse for a bunch of low life chavs to run amock regardless of what it started over anyway. And imo you carry guns you must be prepared to be shot at and possibly killed, thats life.

    NdMk2o1o: This was the original article that got me interested in downsampling.

    As the arrogant Benetanegia mentioned, downsampling is a technique used in Super-Sampling but the difference I think is that instead of the GFX drivers applying it only to jaggies, you render the whole game at a higher resolution giving you a better overall image on everything.

    This was the original thread that started the PCGH article.

    Maybe once we've got more info & results maybe a thread can be started. I'm keen.

    Cheers defo going to look into this when I get home, having another exucse not to talk to the mrs would be great :laugh: and yea I think the pics shown where it is the whole game rendered at a higher res instead of just the jaggies looks a lot better, some of the MW2 and GTA 4 screens I saw look amazing

    As you have an nVIDIA card should be able to do this a hell of a lot easier than I can. F'ing ATi not including this feature.

    In the NV control panel? isn't that just supersampling as was mentioned or is there a different setting?
