Especially I don't get Valves decision to go with fp24 instead of 32.

that is compleatly incorrect.

So perhaps I'm biased ;p.

not only biased, but wrong.

most of the time that stuff is marketing bs, but for for hl2 and doom3 don't think so. Valve said that they offered the deal to ati first because ati's hardware ran their game better , and while i don't know that this is true i don't see any reason to doubt it. as for doom3, nvidia goes to great lengths to make sure their hardware does what Carmack wants it to do, and this is bound to show in Carmack's new engine just like it did in the previous ones.

See now I was told 40% faster then 6800u.. I didn't twist his words.. I just heard them second hand.

yah, i wasn't accusing you of doing the twisting, only falling for the misinformation.

As to the fp24, did you realize the next DX9 requires fp32?

more misinformation; the dx9.0c calls for different precisions based on was shader model is being used. ps3.0 calls for fp32 as a minimum for full precision and fp24 for partial precision hints. however in dx9.0c still leaves full precision at fp24 for ps2.0 so the idea it requires fp32 is completely baseless.

Thats what makes me wonder why valve doesn't support it, and it's just a coincidense that ATI still chooses to support fp24, but nVidia doesnt, when all the next gen technology requires it.

valve has said that it plans to incorporate ps3.0 and therefor full precision shaders that require fp32, so your comment here is completely off base as well.

That and ATI is doing all kinds of bundles with valve games.

and here we see how flawed information leads to flawed conclusions. seriously, there is no point in geting bent out of shape over a bunch of missguided speculation, just calm down, take a deep breath and go hug your geforce or something.

wow Fion, nice bunch of hatred spawned by misconception you have going there. first off, valve isn't using 24bit color, they are using dx9 shaders which ms requires to run at full precision with at least fp24. nvidia cards will run at the closest thing they have to meeting those requirements when full precision is needed, and fp16 when allowed by partial precision hints. this is how dx9 works and vavle is not doing anything different than anyone else in this situation. as for Gabe's comments about the speed of the x800, he never said it was 40% faster than the 6800u. Gabe said:

In terms of performance, it's pretty fast," said Gabe Newell, president of Valve Software, the developer of Half-Life II. "When I say 'pretty fast' I mean that its 40 percent faster in internal testing, faster than any next-generation parts that are coming out. That's a huge advantage in developing a game."

people have twisted that around to say it means 40% faster than the 6800u, but Gabe was clearly mentioning the 40% in relation to the last generation of hardware.



as for the inquirer's claims of cs2 vouchers coming with the x800, i'd bet money that it will never happen.

ya the readme says ps3.0 is in the latest patch and the screenshots that compared ps3.0 to low quality settings look nice. unfortunally, it seems all the dx9 nvidia cards have image quality trouble with the game and the patch, includeing the 6800s.

i just find the texture quality a bit poor, especially on the models.

News Comments > Kingpin Sequel Planned

It ended up being 3 less-than-one-minute loops of CH instrumental noodling in the background.

just checked the cd, there are 6 tracks, all between 3 and 4 minutes. the first 3 are full fledged songs and the second three are instrumental versions of the first 3.

also, whoever said the game needs smothing special besides dm and ctf, bagman is somewhat like ctf but different enough to make it a whole new experiance for all but the few that played it in the orignal kingpin. those that did play bagman will surely be back as it is an absolutely great gametype.

i have 3 requests for this game, bagman, voice comunication built in, and the doom3 engine. if they can pull that off they will surely have my money.

it is foolish to say that becuase someone is quite weathy they arn't doing things for money, many weathly people do things to make a profit all the time. that said, i doubt Carmack is in it for the money, more likely he is just happy to have all the new hardware features to play with as nvidia has a habbit of adding things to hardware at his requst. granted, he also opted for a 5800u over the 9700pro despite how the stack up for us gamers, but he is a developer so his intrests are different.

Even to play legitimately it is better to run with the crackers.

that is just the way The Man does things, he is always looking after them damn crackers.

is the multiplayer beta part of the download? i didn't see how you get in a multiplayer game.

but ya nin, it is very cool. i'm more of a fps fan than a text adventure guy, but it was wild reading the descriptions and imagining myself actually in the game.

like i said, quick saveing thouch console screws up the compass. they probably didn't care about this liked the idea of no quicksave but had enough complaints that now they are working out a way to add it.

i just finished the first level of the full game and i can already say that the game advances everything in genre. the demos do not do it justice. oh and i started with some multiplayer, i saw lots of beta testers bitching about bad netcode but it is great. this game is all around top notch, everything have been looking forward to in hl2 has already been delivered with far cry.
