How to force "high" textures on 128MB cards (maybe necessarly even on 256MB cards, not sure):



Textures on high?

Goto: C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Demo\Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter Demo\Data\settings\

open

renderer_settings.xml

change

<variable name="texture_quality" value="medium"/>

to

<variable name="texture_quality" value="high"/>

^^^^ This can be ignored, game either doesnīt have "high" textures, or autodetects vram and doesnīt let the user force "high" textures. Proof:

medium setting in xml file

high setting in xml file

I love the game, but I won't be buying it until I get a new video card because it totally rapes my 6600GT. 20-25FPS average at auto-detected settings (800x600, Low textures, Medium effects, High post effects). The physics in this game are just plain awesome and I love the fact that you can see your feet and hands and whatnot.

*edit*

Some shots.

The game needs aa badly or at least a higher res option, theres no 1600x1200.

Game didn't allow High Resolution Textures for me so I had to force it, Another thing I found weird is that it never gave me an option for 1600x1200, I had to manually set it in the render file which then broke the Resolution box in the option menu.

No ingame screenshot function from what I can tell aswell... and HDR doesn't seem that impressive, looks more like bloom.

Anyone know what "texture_managed" is in the render file? I have alot of them set to false...

I donīt have the demo yet (2% missing) but I think you need to press "X".

XP64 I guess? Just give it a try if you have these drivers and report what performance you get. TIA!

The mouse feels too loose for some reason, The game plays fine but even at lower then default settings my mouse is flying everywhere.

Im liking it so far but one thing I dislike is the look and choose for your squad, I wish you could disable it since you constantly switch control of squadmates by just pointing at them.
