Sacrificed a few graphics goodies but the difference is still so negligable, the 10fps increase makes it worth it.
Ok these sound like your favorite atm, so I woulnd't have to benchmark the others you posted in post #18 right?

I'll take a look at it a little bit later. Meanwhile why don't you tell me the exact, or at least the most significant, differences between this one and your original ultra?

But I have a request about the smoke. I know I can spawn smoke grenades and put them all around me. I want to know if there is a diff in dx9 tweaked? My guess would be it would be like wic smoke in dx9 you would see the sprite outline against trees and rocks where in dx10 it blends in perfectly and natrual and reacts to wind.

Thx for your time.
If you'd tell me how to spawn smoke grenades I could easily test it

I've also showed that the DX10 water reflections can't be attained within DX9.

I agree with the guy that it's pure marketing BS from Crytek and though I have GREAT admiration for what Crytek have achieved, I think it's a bit low. I know that they're in a business to, it's just a tiny bit on the wrong side of the fence imo.
