The screenies with the "thicker" outlined compass are from an earlier build and the "thinner" compass is from a later build.

This is going to be a must have for me. Hopefully it runs well.

It ran at medium details on a 6800. They didnīt say if it was a "nu/GT/GS/Ultra" but I donīt think you have to worry with your 7900. ;)

You're a soldier for the future, equipped for the most dangerous combat situations and your important mission is... securing a football???

I think they must be running out of believeable ideas or something :s

Never watched 24? :D "Football" is the nickname for the Presidents suitcase which includes codes and a computer to launch 1000s of Nukes.

"This screen shows how important and strategic a position or cover can be in GRAW. Never forget your are the leader and are the one planning the tactic of your team. In that case, being up offer you the possibility to have a large overview of the battlefield and your enemy position, elaborate approach and cover strategy and surely help you to precise your upcoming offensive. It is also the opportunity for you to support your partners down by shooting snipers and hidden enemies. Being on the battlefield is kind of playing chess in a way, always think several moves in advance to surely hit your opponent where it hurts."

Yes very very nice! Is that softshadows?

Superfly

looking amazing now, yup looks like AA + HDR & soft shadows

nice.

May is going to be a cool gaming month for me!!!

Yes the softshadows are SWEET! I hope our character also casts a soft shadow. With the whole body awareness thing, it would make the immersion complete. :)

Regarding AA, considering that most screenshots were taken at 16x12, and if you downsize that to 10x7 with a bicubic/smooth algorithm, you get the same result even with no AA present in the original shot. Anyway, canīt wait to lay my hands on this one! :D

Looks great. Any word on whether or not the game has native widescreen support? I plan on running it to my HDTV. :D

Q: Bo, can you make any comment on the GRAW support for widescreen (16:10 aspect ratio), i.e., will there be native support for WS without distortions?

A: Yes it is supported. You may need SLI or Crossfire though as fillrates are pretty tough at that resolution.

Great, hopefully my 2 7800gts will be enough, though thats one of the main reasons I settled on a 20" WS, to have a better chance of running games at native res :)

Rumor is that GRAW PC will be Starforce free:

http://www.ghostrecon.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=32630&st=0

I have been since informed by a well placed source at Ubi that GRAW will be Starforce free. This may be due to a recently filed lawsuit in California against Ubisoft for using it, but I also attribute it to the bad publicity (or good depending on how you look at it) that Starforce has received as of late by members both here and at the Ubi forums.

Hmmm... Bo actually said it does have Starforce.

Really? I missed that one. Not really doubting it since basically all UBI games since last year are using Starforce. Well, either way, rumors mean nothing. :)

Yea, somebody asked him and he said "Yes, but we will look into a version that is less intrusive"

I don't think there is such a "less intrusive" version, but thats what he said. This was a few months though, so anything could have changed I suppose.
