So I'm trying to grab all the latest drivers and DX10 files for my first jump into Vista (been installed for a while and have clocked about 7.3 minutes in the OS - dual boot system) and Crysis and came across this. Which I found rather funny.


So how does MS show off the potential of DX10?, why they compare two different games of course.

They compare the following:
Picture 2: DirectX®9 (Halo: Combat Evolved)

With.
Picture 1: DirectX®10 (Crysis)
http://www.gamesforwindows.com/PublishingImages/aboutGFW/DirectX10_screen.jpg

You can see the difference for yourself when we compare Picture 2, a screenshot taken from 'Halo: Combat evolved', a PC game which was among the best of its class at release

Best of it's class at release? Wow I didn't know that?

I guess when you can't compare a game's DX9 to the same game's DX10 then there's a problem LOL

I remember I made a thread a long time ago, asking if people though Crysis will act like all the other DX10 games and not show much of an improvement, if any over DX9. Why because it started out as DX9, we have not actually seen any game that has started as DX10.

Not that I think that would make any difference.

dx10 doesn't have any potential and it's alot slower than dx9. I think the Crysis demo really proves that DX10 was a sham all along.

What??? One game (not even a game.. a demo) proves that DX10 was a sham?

ok, we'll see when the game is released, not that it matters, the game looks and plays awesome in DX9 and DX10, just runs a lot better in DX9 at the moment.

MP - beta
SP - demo, and would imagine it's more to final code, with just some clean up. Unless they delay the game again.


This thread was not intended to poke holes in Crysis the game but the tech it sits on and they way MS tries to get us all to buy a new OS. Which I own the latest of both the hardware and software, I just choose to run it under XP with the cfg. tweaks :D

There isn't anything out yet that showed me DX10 was worth it...
Bioshock, COJ, Lost Planet, Crysis... for Christ's sakes there is more than one DX10 demo. YES DX10 IS A SHAM.

DX10 isnt just for visuals.......although imo dx10 looks better than dx9 anyway.

Some more M$ bull**** for DX10 this time from FSX (a first party DX9 to DX10 patchup which was 1 year in the making)

Add that to the fact that atm same for same setting in FSX DX9 vs DX10 mode = 20% decrease in performance)

Dude..DX10 does have differences... if your to blind to see them, that isn't our problem. But we don't need any more stupid ass post of people trying to rip on MS. I don't care that you don't like MS, I don't care that you don't like Vista. NO ONE Likes it.

If the game makers don't see DX10 as a viable mode to support, then they won't support it!

These post have NO POINT.

Crysis does look quite a bit better in DX10 mode, only problem is the performance.

how? good question

nothing tangible exists to date to encourage DX10 adoption. I don't think they'll be any killer apps (games) for at least another year or two. After one year of failing to meet any marketing hype surely developers are avoiding any DX10 only bs

there is nothing in dx10 that could make it a requirement, it mearly allows for a few more/better effects. For instance theres a pretty big difference in crysis water quality between dx9 and dx10, won't keep games in the future from not being able to use dx9 water as a fallback though.
