10-20% on a game that taxes high end systems? You don't think that's important? You one :screwy: little dude.

Yeah, true. But after all the hype about Patch 1.2 I thought there would be more features...

Yeah, true. But after all the hype about Patch 1.2 I thought there would be more features...There have been a few smoke screens that is for sure. However, in recent weeks it had become more apparent that the 1.2 patch would not include any SM3.0 specific IQ changes (HDR, VDM, etc). That is now assumed to be provided in either a 1.3 patch or a separate mod from Crytek altogether. This is all speculation AFAIK now though.

His point is the Farcry patch clearly won't make it as good as those 5 doom screenshots he saw the other week ;) :angel:

:udawg: Come on, don't be so harsh on the guy. After all, i guess we all have our favorite game that we will defend to death if need do, right?

LOL!

Don't sell that that thing yet - looking at all the previews for the 1.2 patch it looks like both high end cards win some of the benchmarks and the differences aren't overly dramatic anyway. It's not like the X800 cards turned into turds at midnight. Oh, and unless you are playing any multiplayer stay away from the 1.2 patch as it not only adds some graphic bugs it also decreases performance on our cards without any other apparent benefits added. I am sure it was totally "unintentional" on Crytek's end!

;)

If you want to spend soem cash on a new card wait for the refresh versions that will be due out later this year - I may be getting a NV45 at that point!

Heh, I was j/k. :) I wouldn't sell it. To much of a loss since I paid big bucks to get it early anyway. Besides, I'm pretty happy with it. I will probably just do what you are: wait for the refresh (nv45) and see how things look then. If SM3.0 really takes off and the nv45 thrashes my XT I might dump it and grab myself one of those instead. Time will tell ofcourse.

I expected the devs to be on vacation today, so I was surprised to here the patch was coming out today instead of tomorrow.

...need nvidia drivers too!

Well since it was gamespot who told us this date I guess that we can put the blame on them. :rw:

wow I did hear something about there being a glich with ati's card but I thought it was a driver issue. In that case I guess that it was a good idea to delay it for ati customers.

Yeah but then with the way things are going with the game I am not surprised. Now the rumour is that the 1.2 patch is going to be released in two parts with the first part in a week or so with the SM3.0 stuff and the latter release with the quicksave function.

With the rate this is going the 1.3 patch won't be out till Christmas if we are lucky.
