I think one of the issues with all this tweaking is that some of these optinons are the ones that make you say "I woudln't have known it could look better unless I saw for myself". I thought the game looked spectacular on high settings and then turning on sun rays, pom, battle dust and tweaking the water a bit does make you say that. At least I did.

I think I've decided to keep motion blur on but right now, only on look rather than all objects. I think it's one of the reasons that crysis appears to run quicker than it really is becuase with motion blur turned off, @ 24 fps, I can tell that it's choppy and has those fraction of a second stutters when you look around quickly. With motion blur on, it's more pleasing to my eyes to have it blurred rather than to see the machine try to render precision faster than it's capable of doing.

I didn't mess with the HDR level yet though. That's one thing I still want to play around with.

I'm using the beta 169.04 drivers if that makes any differnce but I really haven't seen any noticable gain or loss in FPS.
Well what can I say, I simply get lower performance when running with an autoexec with the whole lot of commands that you wrote in #19. I have not tried just #18 since it was my impression that you liked the longer one the most.
