Out of the Blue

Wow, I have to say, I am pretty damn blown away by how incredible Half-Life 2 is.... The only thing more impressive than turning out such an effort is doing so after managing to do so much to raise expectations in advance. Just.... wow.

Let me know how this works for you.

well, it looks a lot better at 1204 (i'm surprised how smooth this game runs!), at least the near-by objects do... so thanks for that. but the stuff in the background is still gettin' jiggy wit' the jaggies...

maybe Enahs can explain to me how to config the drivers to force AA??!??

off-topic: i'm really happy to see that both D3 and HL2 run better on people's rigs than they expected them to. the days of Q2 and Unreal are over (for now anyway) thankfully! i remember when every time a new game can out only those with the most 1337 monster rigs could run at 800x600 with the bells and whistles all turned on. and Unreal took at least a year before *anyone* could run it like that. i'm very satisfied to know that my current set-up should be good for 2 years at least...
