Default Re: No Patch = No Ultra Settings

truth be told, the 1028 is the best IMO. In that particular shot, yah the lowest looks best but due to the absurd mile long shadows that palm trees cast on the ground in the game, 768 shadows make those look wierd and 1028 looks best for that. It's just one thing in a long list of things I wish crytek could have just taken a step back and said "you know, this looks nothing like real shadows...we should fix this"

but no... If there were a way to have the shadow resolution progressively go from highest nearest the object to less as it gets further away, it's like a no brainer in my mind but they must have their reasons.

Valve figured it out though...
