Very very nice, Yeah that third shot is freaky. I always love seeing people walking on the ceiling. What kind of shadow options does it have? Have you tried soft shadows yet? Iíll be grabbing this in about 4 hours.
Looks awesome keep the screenies coming.

Seems more of the same but thats a-ok with me as I always loved the gunfights in FEAR. Is it me or are there more things flying around (debris) in the demo compared to FEAR?? I'll get the expansion if its reasonably priced..

This demo won't sway critics of FEAR but those like me who enjoyed it will like the demo and I'm sure the full expansion.

One annoyance is the lack of widescreen resolutions in game which is lame as Condemned which uses the same engine has WS resolutions right off the bat. I had to do the same thing to put in the WS res as I did with FEAR (for info go to widescreengamingforum.com )

Hm this demo had both it good sides and it bad sides.
But one thing i dont get, it seems they exluded alot of thoose cool effects, shoot holes in walls, no sparks when shooting on walls etc.. shoot a fire extinguisher and only a black smoke gets out.

I believe the shadow options are the same as the original game, at least in the demo. Haven't tried soft shadows yet.

@Biohazzard - You are getting 10-14 fps on a X1900XT @ 1024*768!!!!
Does it run worse than the original FEAR? Have you enabled soft shadows?

The fact that a third party developer is creating this, and NOT Monolith, makes me want to pass this up.

Getting frame rates in the mid 30s for the most part. 2xaa btw.

Yeah that bloody room was insane.. and no soft shadows are off and thoose were medium settings. I can play original Fear at 1280x1024 all settings maxed except soft shadows and get way better fps above 30 easy.

I just hope its bad coding and nothing else.

I guess this is a good game to bring some of the Quad SLI power ...

Ok, but what frames are you getting in that blood filled room?, I have read of an insane drop in the fps in that room, just like with Biohazzard.

Both my cards (X800XT PE and 7600GT) are going to get slaughtered...gulp...I hope the final retail version runs better.

I will check later, but never noticed any major frames drop there.

Oh ok, thanks, in any case this is what a forum member (Skinner) at Rage3D had to say about the performance - Looks and plays allright, but it's pretty powerhungry, even with X1900fire it runs like a dog at times (esp. the room with all the blood)

I'm running at 1280x1024 all setting maxed except soft shadows. 4AA 16AF. Runs just fine for me. Can't wait for this, has gotten me in the mood to replay FEAR.

Maybe just me, but this didn't have the same polished feel as FEAR. Then again it is just a demo. I'm betting the retail will be much sweeter.

Is the level design anybetter or is it like the previous one where all the rooms generally used the same textures over and over again

Why didn't the devs support widescreen resolutions this time out? Very disappointed about that.

Very good demo, those crazy demons in the blood room! I just wish it wasn't so short, but ulma(sp?) is back and she looks pissed! :)

Wow did you guys shoot the two electrical boxes in that first long empty hallway right before the vent, the whole ceiling collapses. I noticed they really tried to use more physics this time. I think there might be problems with that new gun, I unloaded 100 rounds in to one normal guy short and long range and just got sparks like I was shooting metal. Great performance and looked gorgeous, I really liked the flares they throw down. The light looked so perfect I thought they were static at first but you can knock them around.

The game won't let me choose native resolution of my monitor (1280 x 1024). It only lets me choose 1280 x 960 which ends up blurry.. Does anyone else with LCD have this problem, or a fix?

Thanks.

You need to edit the setting.cfg

It's in

Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared Documents\Monolith\F.E.A.R.

Well thats for the original FEAR, this demo shouldn't be too far off.
