19. Re: Performance results? Jan 8, 2008, 16:02 4D-Boxing
From what I've read up to now, vista DX 10 is getting biggest performance boost. People are talking about 10fps increase.

As for XP or DX 9 under vista...users are supposed to get better image quality, less slow downs & stuttering but the fps increase might be minimal.

3. Re: Keyboard+mouse Vs Gamepad Dec 28, 2007, 14:32 4D-Boxing

Another thing when a Games gets released on both PC & consoles there is a difference in how bullets travel. By this I mean on the console side the same weapon will have a wider spray pattern if I can use that expression & the hit box on the characters will be a bit larger thus giving the people with gamepads a similar level of accuracy as mouse users.

I'm not trying to say someone with a game pad can't do well or beat a guy with a mouse. I used to play the Original Unreal Tournament with the MS Dual Strike gamepad that was designed for FPS and I used to do very well. Even made the top 100 for a specific week.

PS. Cabezone made a very good point the user can make a big difference.

4. Crysis triple SLI Dec 12, 2007, 19:07 4D-Boxing
150% improvement in crisis with 3 cards?!
Plus the tests are supposed to have been at 2560x1600 with 4x fsaa & 16x AF!

That must be some patch they are working on for Crysis or some really good drivers! Cause my setup isn't bad & i get 25 to 30 fps at 1920x1200 with same level of detail on 2 gtx.

........just read somewhere that it's supposed to be 250% performance boost?!? what ever it is I have to see it to believe it!

MEchworrior with a new engine...I would pay 80$ if done right to make sure they amke $$ withthe game & support it for a long time (Epic style).

Even the Unreal 3 engine could make a great mech game...Darkwalkers in ut3 look awsome. I know PhysX is dying but they could even use those capabilities to add the deformable terrain that was in MW:3 & plus buildings that can be destroyed.

Mech worrior of the most satisfying online experience ever!

I'll just tell you what every politician says....MOney has more influence on policies that are adopted than public opinion and....Money is the lubricant of the political system or Washington...

So punks who vote can complain all they want but the end result will be the same. People in power will do what they feellike doing.

Bottom line like Kissenger says...when they have the choice between doing what is right & what is intheir best interest they will do what is in their best intrest!

I thought these guys said there was no widescreen issue with the game when it came out.

Still don't get how gamers can release fixes or a work arond faster than people who get paid to do the work.

9. Re: Microsoft Sued... Nov 28, 2007, 15:40 4D-Boxing
I don't even think the game needs to be patched. I do not own a 360 but I do have a few close friends that do. THey had the same issue with other games & it's the Drive not the game.

The game might have isues that need to be patched but most of the crash scenarios that I've heard of where resolved by bringing the machine to the store & getting a new one.

I think some of the original 360s came with a BenQ drives if & I'm not mistaken BenQ burners got pulled off the shelves (on the PC side years ago) cause of similar issues.

Another issue could be the power bar. I guess the 360 is supposed to be plugged directly in the wall no power bar.

12. Re: FYI Nov 26, 2007, 16:00 4D-Boxing
My system is overkill for UT3 E6850 @ 3.6 & 8800GTX SLI setup and the game slowed down way to much on the PhysX maps. On top of that the map I tried looked really bad.

(tried hte one that is not tornado related)

On a side note I also tried the warmonger - operation downtown destruction open beta. My eye still hurt from playing the tutorial. It's a beta so I can't juge it to harshly but when the tutorial makes you want to uninstall...not good.

10. FYI Nov 26, 2007, 10:17 4D-Boxing
There is checkbox for something called "frame smoothing" I thinks that is what it's called.

Well on my system I had to remove the checkmark or the game would crash after 5 minutes of online play.

I don't think that options was there before.

PS. The PhysX level are crap...AMD better buy AGEIA fast because everything that was supposed to show of the cards sucks except maybe ageia islanf in graw 2.

Those commercials are annoying just because they keep putting the emphasis on the fun stuff you can do on Mac's but what is more fin than playing a game? Are Mac's any good at that? No.. so the commercials are an insult to the intelligence of all computer users PC & Mac.

Pretty weak when a commenrcial revolves around bashing the competition. To me that says Mac's have nothing tangible that proves they are better so they hurl insults. Release soething that will compete then make real commercials.

Even without the issues I don't think many people would be playing it on the PC.

On a side note, Even CoD does not have as many people playing online as we had with old UT games. I was expecting a minimum of 10 000 server not 5 or 6000.
With the amount of choices gamers have today we will not see many games hit the numbers UT or CS had back in the days.

2. Re: No subject Nov 22, 2007, 16:57 4D-Boxing
I don't think the game can run smoothly & look good. It's one or the other. T0 me 60 fps with an occasional drop to 45 is smooth.

With Crysis if you want it to look as good as the screenshots we all love. well We are taking about 40 fps max & 25 or 30 fps when in the forest. All that with a cpu running at 3.6ghz & 2 8800gtx. 1280x1024 jsut does not look right on a 24" LCD so I'll play through the game once and use it as a benchmarking tool. It's all it is ..a benchmark tool/tech demo.

I'm not trying to bash the game. I love the fact that they are pushing technology to it's limits. I know it will force Nvidia & AMD to release their best hardware faster but as a game.....this one wont be breaking any sales records lol.

AMD considers buying Ageia...

Despite, Ageiaís disappointing games-support for its PhysX chip, the company's PhysX software is free, and has accordingly been used widely, even if the PhysX hardware itself isnít supported. As such, buying Ageia could give AMD a chance to continue to compete in the gaming physics arena now that Intel has bought Havok.

This is news headline taken form another site.

If this pans out we might see the chip integrated in a future chipset or on a video card.

20. Re: ... Nov 21, 2007, 16:53 4D-Boxing
PhysX will provide an increase in at least performance in every UT3 engine game to date.

If that is the case, AGEIA should put that info on their site. On apersonal note, I do own one of those PPUs and I've never seen any improvement except in titles that specifically support PhysX.

UT3 Engine was designed to be able to take advantage of PhysX but I don't think All developers take advantage of that.

I get more of performance boost by renaming the exe but that is an SLi thing.

Exactly just extra fluff...

Without the right hardware that fluff will cause a drop in frame rate.

Bottom line it's nothing special just effects that will make the game look a bit better than on regular setting. Nothing that will impact game play...that stuff is only available on the Physx maps.

Physics shold be done onthe CPU to avoid creating bottlnecks. CPU waiting for info from PPU etc..

On the other hand, if you look at Crysis, Even with everything on very high including physics a quad core does not add much in terms of performance. I get the same frame rate with an overclocked e6850 as people with QX6850.

2. UT3 review Nov 21, 2007, 12:21 4D-Boxing
I guess Computer & Video Games is the same as Games Radar lol...word for word the exact same review.

As for Crysis at least it will force Nvidia to release their best hardware instead of holding back in case ATI releases a monster card.

Even on my PC e6850 @ 3.6 and 2 8800gtx in sli I get 35 to 40 fps on high. On Very high all but the shadows I get 30 to 35 fps all this at 1920x1200 with 2x AA. From what I've read quad cores do not give you much more performance benchmarks could have been off but I trust the site.

Turning Off AA is does not give much of a fps boost. Lowering the resolution to let's say 1650x1200 does not add much speed.

This is a big assumption but I'm assuming that you will be able to play the maps because you have the checkmark that PhysX owners have. I'm think that the game will look for checkmark... if you have it ..then you can play the map.

It would be nice to get an official yes or no from Epic on this.

Worst case scenario you'll get the extra particule effects or whatever in the regular maps.

I you have a PC with let's say q6600 and SLI ( no PhysX card) ...physX is enabled by default.. I heard of people who have e6700 & SLI that have PhysX unlocked (check box not greyed out)

In other words if you the the specs the game enables the Physx stuff. Not sure what you have to own hardware wize to have it....
