Well, I guess the next patch is not supposed to have the sm3.0 in it at all. The shots we are seeing are from a 'mod' of Far Cry. They say that it will be released but probably as a mod and not an official patch. ;-(

Here's the linkage---> http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/6/ubb.x?a=tpc&s=400102&f=452106891&m=540100183


maybe he was just uninformed.....

Those are pics of what you will see in the v1.3 patch, not the v1.2 patch.

AFAIK The v1.2 patch will add stuff like offset mapping (ie 3d looking textures) and SM3.0 support, while the v1.3 patch will add HDR similar to what you see in those pics.

That thread began way back in April...a lot can change and djnogg (Ubisoft Community Manager) isn't really telling us something we don't already know...which is that he/we don't know much for certain. ;) I'm reading through that entire thread...

I read that entire thread...well djnogg's posts at least ;) Here is a summary of some of his posts...these are in ascending order:

I believe it was a mod created by Crytek as part of a demo at nvidia's unveiling of the new 6800. There has been no official word from Crytek on whether or when that mod will be released though, although common sense suggests that they will eventually release it.



PS 3.0: Crytek has not indicated whether or not they will released their PS 3.0 "mod" yet. Stay tuned though.



As for the patch release date, I purposely did not post a date because I wasn't given one. Getting the patch *right* is more important than getting the patch *soon*. If all goes well, maybe another week or two, but that is *speculation*.



I was away at E3 last week, so I didn't have time to keep up with the forums. I do have a short, laregly unsubstanital update about the next patch. I received an updated changelog the other day as well as a note telling me the patch is still in testing. I can only guess they found some problems and had to tweak it, otherwise it would have been released by now.



This is part of his latest post dated Fri June 18 2004 04:46 PM
I realize that this is a frustrating wait, but I can't know for sure when the release is because Crytek holds all the keys to development -- they write the code, they test the code, and they give it to us when it's ready. Because of this, Ubisoft has little say as to who gets to test the patches, and when they go out.

That said, I think the wait is almost over for the 1.2 patch. I can't release any dates for sure, but if all goes well with the next testing cycle, it should be out *very* soon. Don't read too much into this though, because it's exactly this situation that got us in trouble in the firts place. We want to release a patch that works, so you can't rush it.

One other bit that you might find interesting -- the reason for the current patch delay is that compatibility problems were discovered between the patched version of the game and the sandbox editor. So for you modders out there, part of this delay will ultimately result in a patch that is much less frustrating for you to use in your modding projects.

When pics like that are posted it makes me rethink about going with a geforce 6800nu instead of an ultra.

Really? Then show us the link with the date you claimed to be 1 week or more. However I been checked Beyond 3D, Nvnews, Rage3D, Neowin, Warp2search which I visited everyday, so far none of it valided your claim.

I dont think you got the proof! These pics are new I never seen it before, I checked the pics linked from pccom dated stamped 16 June, that just a few days ago. :angel2:

Hmmm I never visited Guru3D, well these pictures are really exclusive, it really very shame that somebody from Guru3D or you failed to reported to all others sites like Nvnews, Neowin and Warp2search sites that will supposed posted exclusive news with screenshots that will get everybody attentions included me. Well it a week late lol. :)

If I were you back on 11 June saw screenshots at Guru3D and checked the news on nvnews, neowin and warp2search that nobody posted the screenshots first and I will of course report it and the sites will post the news first with my name on it before somebody did it. :D

No, it doesnt. UE3 has so many advantages over Far Cry's engine. like the displacement mapping which actually alters geometry and isnt a hack. And I think those HDR shots are faked, but thats just my opinion.

that's farcry with HDR lighting..

UE3 looks 100x better than farcry... no comparison... but that is certainly the best looking out yet.
