Get a sneak peak at the incredible new graphic engine, ultra-realistic AI, and try out a few of Agent 47’s new moves."

Here are some screenshots I took, 1600x1200

Man, I've got a blazing 40k/sec connection at download.com going and a 83 minute wait at 3Dgamers. :(

Edit: vgpro is downloading at over 500K+ for me. That's more like it. :)

Here are a few from the first scene (before anything is going on). I was just checking to make sure I had AA on, to see if soft-shadows were working, etc etc.

What's the best SLI mode? I seems AFR2 works good.

I just used the predefined profile (SLI value) although I had to add the demo exe to the profile. They were pointing to hitman3.exe while the demo is using HitmanBloodMoney.exe.

<PROFILE Label="Hitman 3: Blood Money">
<APPLICATION Label="hitman3.exe"/>
<APPLICATION Label="hitmanbloodmoney.exe"/>
<PROPERTY Label="multichip_rendering_mode" Value="0x00430011" Itemtype="predefined"/>
</PROFILE>


1920x1200 4xAA/16xAF soft-shadows on (hopefully)

You really think so?

I thought the shots looked really realistic. Not mind blowing, but they deffinitely have a very very realistic feel to them.

I think it looks pretty good, texture resolution is a little low, OWA, do you have the setting "Max" for texture resolution? This is the highest texture resolution for the full version.

They may have left it out of the demo for size purposes, also, how is performance?

OWA
05-22-06, 02:13 PM
Thanks, but this is Hitman 4... Does the SLI value works anyway?
So far my driver doesn't have a profile for Hitman 4. I'm using 84.43.
I'm just using the Hitman Blood Money profile they have in the 87.xx drivers. All I did was add the demo exe to the profile. That's all I know. :) The SLI value seems to work fine.

OWA
05-22-06, 02:18 PM
Here are the options I'm trying to use. Who knows if they're actually working or not. Performance is good from what I've seen so far but I haven't seen a lot of action yet.

This game actually has alot of tech on the engine. Normal mapping, parralax, DoF, motion blurring, SM3.0, etc.

OWA

Performance is cool, runs smooth at 2560 with 4x AF and hard shadows.
That's with AFR2.

Thanks OWA, I'll copy your SLI parameter than.

But why is your label Hitman 3: Blood Money. Contracts was Hitman 3....
That was just the profile they provide in the 87.xx drivers. I checked the 87.08 and the 87.25s. Both call it Hitman 3: Blood Money. They provide a different profile for the Contracts one although it looks like it is using the same SLI value. Maybe it's just a place holder for the betas or something.

From the 87.25 nvapps.xml file:

<PROFILE Label="Hitman 3: Blood Money">
<APPLICATION Label="hitman3.exe"/>
<PROPERTY Label="multichip_rendering_mode" Value="0x00430011" Itemtype="predefined"/>
</PROFILE>

<PROFILE Label="Hitman Contracts">
<APPLICATION Label="hitmancontracts.exe"/>
<PROPERTY Label="multichip_rendering_mode" Value="430011" Itemtype="predefined"/>
</PROFILE>

Hmmm from what I have seen I don't think the game usues soft shadows for everything. The character models look very rough up close.

I can play smoothly at 1920x1200 with 2xAA/8xAF (don't really need higher AA at this resolution, no jaggies) everything else is on max. I can't set the profile to AF2 though, its locked at AFR.

Edit: Nevermind, it wasn't what I thought.

Also, in regards to the SLI values, AFR2 seems to work better for the cutscenes but their predefined SLI value seems to be a little higher with actual in-game performance. I had to make sure I left the predefined tag there also, otherwise, it seemed to override my value.

Edit 2: Added a few more screenshots. Hopefully they allow you to quick save in the game. I've gotten killed a few times while trying to take screenshots and then have to start the whole thing over.

It doesn't look jaw dropping amazing honestly. Looks good but nothing we haven't already seen... It's no Oblivion or Splinter Cell: CT thats for sure...

I agree it isnt Oblivion or Splinter Cell Chaos Theory. This is Hitman Blood Money therefore compare it to Hitman 2 or Hitman Contracts. From the looks of it its the biggest upgrade the series has had as far as graphics. I almost got it downloaded. I post my openion of it after I play it for a while.
