I expect that he has no intention of being dragged into court but will remove the word "scrolls" from his game title before it ships.

I'm sure that's why he paid who-knows-how-much for the scrolls.com domain.

I'll take "What you get for $11.99 at GoDaddy.com" for 100, Alex.

Yeah. Now if only there was a +cvar_add_decent_fucking_textures command...

Wait, you're still getting shit textures on your 5850? Or is this the rig @work?

***EDIT

N/M...just saw your follow-up.

Quadros, IME, have usually had shit gaming performance to begin with. More for CAD, etc.

I actually didn't think Daikatana was as bad as everyone said it was back in the day. I just remember the green enemies on the green level which was my only gripe with it. I would rather have spikes in performance than to have the textures get bumped down. Maybe a patch will allow this override.

True...True.

But I'm still waiting for Romero to "make me (his) bitch," LMAO

Creston--

Is that still on the machine you cobbled together, or your game rig? I did get some pop on my gaming rig, but, provided I didn't swivel fast, it wasn't that noticeable. I haven't tried the BF3 NV drivers yet; some have said it eliminates the popping altogether--I'll have to try that once I get home.

I wanted to try Rage on my XPS m1710 and it's lowly 7950GTXgo, but alas, Rage crashes from DEP errors. Probably the ancient driver I'm forced to use because the newer ones F-up the graphics (179.xx) :/

I'm guessing he meant "+cvaradd g_fov 120"; that, or he plays with his monitor in portrait mode....

No, he means 20. The default FOV in the game is 80. The cvaradd command ADDS the specified value TO 80. So if he did cvaradd +120 then the FOV would go to 200...

Creston

Well that certainly makes more sense

I've added (+cvaradd g_fov 20) to the SET LAUNCH OPTIONS after right clicking Rage on MY GAMES list then clicking Properties. Game runs amazing and looks fantastic.

Anyway, not much to complain about love the game so far... enjoying head shooting mutant scum and bandits. But was wondering if anyone has played around with the FOV. Since I'm not having much of any slow down and no pop in at all I want to change my FOV to the max I can use without causing graphic slow downs. So if anyone has experimented please let us know. Thanks...

Holy crap, that must be like playing through a keyhole...

Pesky kids...Uncle Johnny has to hold their hand through the scary autoexec.cfg, eh? When I grew up, I had to walk to school in the snow. Uphill. BOTH WAYS. And we edited our autoexec.cfgs....and we LIKED it!

Bah, back when I was a nipper, we had to edit our autoexec.bat files, and we DAMN WELL LIKED IT.

I yield, sir (and I remember them too...especially for Wing Commander 3)...

Exactly, this is where my helpful links come into play. Now you can learn about that, too.

Done with this. You are making no sense whatsoever.

I only played a couple of minutes but so far its not too bad. I really hope they realease an HD texture pack for this

In the Ghost HQ area (1st mission), if you go in the corner of a room, the shadows are just green textures.

You got Daikatana textures in my Rage...you got Rage textures in my Daikatana.

Taking it back to 2000.

I think that's the point many people are missing. The game is scaling texture detail based on your hardware to maintain 60fps. It has HD textures in it right now, it just won't use them as it would render your game at "below optimal framerates."

John even stated that this was going to be the case months ago when talking about the technology and how it worked.

Now, is how it's choosing a patchwork of texture resolutions a little whack? Oh, probably. Will it get fixed? Most definitely (this is id, afterall).

As I stated earlier, since when has id ever shipped a game designed to max out with today's hardware? They always target down the road...

*shrug*

My understanding is some tweaks can be entered into command line so game starts with them. Tweaks that you do that with only have to be entered once.

Also, I bet there's a way to do a config text file and just run that one command every game startup to load that file.

Yeah, I'm trying to figure that one out now. It being id, I'd be surprised if there were no rage.cfg (or equivalent).

Also, did I see somewhere that NVIDIA tweeted that they were releasing a driver today as well?

( ( ( EDIT ) ) )

Guru3D posted this note from nVidia:

We'll be pushing a profile update for RAGE later today so if you purchased this game, please make sure you have enabled the NVIDIA Update feature.
