SM3.0 in FarCry dosent bring any new effects , it only improves performance.

what you've seen in the tech demo year ago didnt make it to the game unfortunately.

\r_hdrrendering 7 (You can choose different numbers but I don't remember the range -- 7 is regarded as the best, I guess)

Remember that if you use HDR in Farcry you must turn OFF AA. Otherwise it won't work.

The range of HDR is from 2 upto 11 , although the effect doesnt exactly increase that way . 7 is the best trade off between the HDR effect and the FPS .

Hey Grechie let me know how Far Cry runs with HDR enabled. My friend wants a good vid card to play HL2, Far Cry etc with HDR enabled and hes looking at spending around $300NZ so I was thinking a 6600GT would be the way to go. Anyways let me know dude.

BTW How did Australia lose to the Frogs in the Rugby on the weekend? Fire Gregan!!! Now! :)

lmao yeah i know aye!
it runs really good with HDR enabled, and this 6600GT does the trick, it oc's to 1200mhz memory no problems too for a 19.2gb mem bandwith or something... (read it on a review site n tried 1200mhz it was good)
