Far Cry Doom 3 and Half Life 2 all have 2 types of reflective surfaces. One done with realtime cube maps, one with premade cube maps, Using premade cube maps in Far Cry and Doom 3, is very fast with almost no speed difference and almost no image changes either. Here is the problem can you tell the difference between realtime reflection and pre made cube map reflection if the quality of the pre made cube map is at a high resolution on a refractive surface? Has ATi cards and new drivers been tested with thier AI off?

Your missing what I said. The water settings changes what is refleced. The Reflect all reflects everything. The reflect world only reflects some things.
