i was just looking at my pc gamer. they dx 9 and 10 games are horrible looking. they look like nintendo 64 games. every single one of them. fog covers up 90% of what should be viewable. i don't like z-cull either. it causes the draw distances to be shorter. i'm very mad that it can't be disabled. i wouldn't mind if someone told me i was going to die tonight. i wish all of these performance boosting image quality decreasing features could just be disabled. i don't need to go past 30 fps, let alone 60, unless it's f-zero, which would never be on a pc anyway. why can't there be choices for those who care about iq? i want to turn off all or most compression, the z-cull, the fog or choose a different type, i want to be able to choose my supersampling points, msaa sucks, i want to be able to not have features trimmed from the driver that prevent older games from running 100%. are all of those iq decreasing features really that necessary? and the thing that's worst of all about it, is that nvidia and ati force these things instead of giving the option. i know what i want my games to look like, i don't want someone else to make the decision for me. those who want maximum image quality and compatibility are totally SOL.

WTF?

Show me some DX10 screens.

DX10 has nothing to do with Fog, but has everything to do with utilizing the geometry shader, more advanced instancing, etc. Mainly performance increases.

What Dx10 game and What Dx9 game were you looking at? I can make pong in either of them and it wouldn't look better then NES unless I radically changed the look. I really think most of your posts are made to stir up **** because they are so ****ing stupid that I would rather read a post from Nv40.

I seriously don't know which one of them is worse, they both act like they know so much but neither can put together a proper sentence. People need to realize that to be taken seriously they need to atleast make an effort to sound/look intellegent. All I see from this guy is...

blah blah blah fog blah blah blag RGSS blah blah blah I love Nv40 blah blah blah

The DX10 (and DX9) version of Conan doesn't look so hot.

It's also a MMO which never fully pushes anything special. Some would say that just looking better then the average game while having hundreds of people on screen at once is dam good graphics... which I agree. Graphics aren't all about bump maps and HDR but what they can achieve extra with the engine.

Funny I thought the few shown screenshots of Directx 10 looked great. Company of Heroes had alot better lighting and the water effects for MSFT Flight Sim looked alot better too. Not to metion how great Alan Wake looks.

You know what a comma is?, Im tired of reading your posts, youre the only person I see in this forum that start post for crying an moaning and without any sense to me an the rest of mortals... RGSS, TMNT... etc... :headexplode:

LOL, I love this guy. He wants to turn off z-culling, which would solely have the effect of severely hurting performance while having absolutely no effect on what you see on the screen. I'm not sure WTF he's talking about in the rest of his post, but based on the fact that he doesn't know what a basic graphics function does I'd guess he's BS'ing about all the antialiasing stuff too.

As for Company of Heroes screenshots I could have sworn that I saw some out there on the net somewhere. I could be mistaken tho. Still the ones we have seen are awesome!!:afro:
