Wasn't it running very well when they were playing the multiplay on the USS Hornet for a Media day? The gametrailers.com videos from that day make it look extremely fluid. We've been playing a beta that's very much out of date and full of bugs so why would you expect it to perform the same?

because why wouldn't they want people to play the latest they have?..spare a couple weeks

Eh? I thought it was Crytek's domain. May not be EA but its Crytek.

I think because they'd rather work their butts off with QA rather than make the monumental effort to release a public beta. It's harder to get a public beta out there than an internal build. There's a lot more to coordinate. We've already seen 3 builds, that's more than most public betas.

But thoose who preordered should have gotten the demo 24 hours earlier ? isnt that time for thoose lucky bastards soon ?

It should be ready in 1 hour 25 minutes.

Demo out yet? No news on 24hr early preloaders? No annoucement from EA or Crytek?

I'm starting to smell a Yahoo type fiasco. :thumbdwn:

It'll be possibly be released at 12PM Central Standard which is in 2 hours 20 minutes now.

If not, we got jipped.

I just tried out a few new cfg settings and I have to say I'm impressed. Improved sunshafts, water reflections (reflects more objects and they get updated more often), higher quality LODs for trees, bushes, structures, disabled texture LODs, forced occlusion mapping. Almost nothing is "popping up" anymore, sharper textures in the medium-long distance, and the performance hit seemed actually neglectible. :)

Which settings? :)

Which settings? :)


Create an autoexec.cfg (text file) in the same folder where the system.cfg is located copy and paste this into the autoexec.cfg:

; r_displayinfo = 1
e_view_dist_ratio_detail = 30
e_water_ocean_soft_particles = 1
e_lod_ratio = 12
e_particles_thread = 1
r_sunshafts = 1
sys_physics_CPU = 1
r_DepthOfField= 1
r_MotionBlur= 1
r_DetailDistance = 12
r_DynTexMaxSize = 120
r_Beams = 1
r_BeamsDistFactor=0.01
r_BeamsMaxSlices=200
r_CloudsUpdateAlways=1
r_WaterReflectionsQuality = 3
r_WaterUpdateFactor = 0.03
r_WaterGodRays = 1
r_UsePom = 1
e_detail_materials_view_dist_xy = 4096
e_detail_materials_view_dist_z = 256
e_cull_veg_activation = 70
e_lods = 0
r_TextureLodMaxLod = 0
r_DynTexAtlasCloudsMaxSize=40
r_DynTexAtlasSpritesMaxSize=30

Make sure that the system.cfg isn't modified in any way and neither the 13 sys_spec_*.cfg in the Game/Config/CVarGroups. This is not necessary anymore and might actually cause problems, use the default ones that came with the Beta3, if you don't have them, just PM and I'll email you them. :)

And how do u get this info? :)

And thx

agentkay that sounds great! may i have a copy of your cfg's please :rolleyes:

Good, thanks!

A few notes. Bushes and trees still have this ugly lod textures at pretty close range, and textures a few meters away look very blurry just like if you had anisotropic filtering turned off. As it always do when u use POM in the beta AFAIK. Otherwise it looks great, good job witht he rays and the water. Also, i get a bit worse framerates with this.

Actually I picked only "4096" for the LOD, LOD is not disabled but "pushed further away", and I believe you can go high as "8192" to push is even further back. AF apparently is controlled by the server settings in the beta but higher angled textures are indeed sharper in the med/long distance, somebody posted screenshot comparisions of that in the beta forums. :)

Hm... in what section of that forum? general? Anyway, i know AF was working with POM because on some textures u can see it, on the bridge for example, but the other ground textures gets very blurry DISPITE you have AFx16 on. So its something with the POM for sure. Or did you find a way to fix that?

Secondly, what does e_view_dist_ratio_detail do? its on 30 now, what happens if you change that value?

agentkay
10-25-07, 09:47 PM
It's in the "Video" section and e_view_dist_ratio_vegetation = 30 is controlled and set by the servers to 30.

Kind of reminds me of splinter cell double agent!

Ok being serious, I dont know why this is happening. Does anyone else have this problem!?

Nope my night vision looks as good as CoD4's, granted just running in XP with 163.71s right now.

Getting ready to do a big bench mark marathon.:afro:
