However, were your detail settings exactly as they were in the demo?
There are other detail settings available via the console by typing preferences.
Never mind me though, I'm just a skeptical ol' pirate.
One more question though it's off topic: Is there still a very noticable drop in performance when Hardware Sound + EAX is selected in the retail version?
Retail demos are a bit different than the ones in the demo. That's why people are seeing differences in the results (retail: 144/64, demo 159/59 on my machine).
Preferences -command is removed from the retail version, it doesn't work. (http://www.ina-community.com/forums/...hreadid=215586
And the last, I haven't tested the performance between eax+3dhardware vs software audio.
