News Comments > Crysis DirectX 9 & 10 MP Performance
44. Re: No subject Sep 14, 2007, 08:23 Efflixi
 
My DX9 card (radeon x1950xtx) is faster than all other video cards on the PLANET except the 8800GT(S/X) and the 8800 Ultra. My CPU isn't the fastest but its no slouch either (Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 2.8GHz) Is Crytek really telling me that someone with a 128MB 8400GT that is 4x slower than my card and whatever cheap ass CPU they have, will be able to show physics and day/night cycles on DX10 servers? Ridiculous!

News Comments > Thousand-player Deathmatch?
8. Re: No subject Sep 11, 2007, 16:17 Efflixi
 
Well, having ran a Quake 2 server for a while, i know that on that engine, each player requries roughly 8KB/sec for a smooth network connection. Obviously games today do a lot more calculations that Quake 2 does so this figure isn't workable anymore. The question becomes, how much of this rendering can be done without sending extra network data.

Even if only 1KB/sec per person were being sent, that would be nearly a megabyte per second of information for a thousand players. While there are plenty of servers with that much bandwidth, i'd be willing to bet that 95% or more of the people in the US do not have that much download. You'd have to strip this down to at least half that. I just cant see 512bytes of information per second being enough to calculate even just player positions.

"Lol there it is again, how I love that sentence. WIll I or won't I describe Lynda Carter as an 'acting legend'? Oh, I'll just append her at the end and hope nobody will notice."

Not to mention the fact that (secret text)

Patrick stewart only voices the first 15 minutes of the game... kinda stupid to imply that you interact with that character for more than a few minutes

News Comments > New ATI Catalyst Drivers
7. Re: And as usual Sep 10, 2007, 15:39 Efflixi
 
"don't you typically download laptop vid card drivers from the laptop manufacturer and not the chipset manufacturer? i have an older laptop with an ATI card and that's what i always did... until i started getting the omega drivers from omegadrivers.net."

Right, but in this case it's ridiculous. It's a Dell laptop, nvidia hasn't released a driver that supports the card in it, in over a year and Dell hasn't either. Even laptopvideo2go.com doesn't have a current driver for it.

I wouldn't do that...

Nvidia's mobile graphics drivers have not been updated in forever. My friend's laptop is running a driver from LAST YEAR because it's the latest driver for his nvidia card.

News Comments > BioShock SM 2.0 Progress
2. Re: Great Aug 29, 2007, 11:30 Efflixi
 
I don't see why people are so up in arms about this. The minimum requirements state it needs a SM 3.0 card. Besides, i'd be willing to bet that the only SM 2.0 cards fast enough to play this at a decent resolution and FPS is ATI's x800 series.

As an addendum to the post above with the info on the tool, they updated it later in that thread to support the full version of the game as well.

It runs pefectly fine on my core 2 duo e6600, radeon x1950xtx, 3GB ram, and Vista Ultimate 32bit.

I like to laugh at all the people trying to run it on cards 2 generations old and then complaining very loudly that it doesn't work or looks like crap. Um, hello? It says it requires SM3.0 in the readme and in the minimum requirements on the site!

Your link (I'm assuming sent in by someone?) to the AMD 6000+ AM2 X2 CPU on Overclockers Club actually links to the last page of the review...

http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/amd_6000/ - Would be the proper link

"Steam is working for me. Try again? "

Make that over 9 million active subscribers as of last month... it boggles the mind.

On an unrelated note, this marks my 100th post in 7 years!

"but which version of Doom are they pushing? "

They are running the original DOS versions using a slightly modified version of DOSBox. Everything runs perfectly on my Core 2 Duo/Windows XP SP2 machine at home.

"I call bullshit on this one:

Obviously a Photoshop job (and a poor one at that). "

No, it's real, just not an accident. It's part of an AD done by an insurance company.
