Default Re: Disabling PS2.0 on FX5900 made me happy

>FlyingHorse: In Rivatuner (a software),
under Directx -> shaders -> pixel shaders -> force 1.4
I kept vertex shaders at 2.0 since the GeforceFX handles them properly.

I also use high quality texture filtering in Rivatuner, and a mip map bias of -1.0, these two combined give (near) perfect quality without using anisotropic filtering, so performance stays up.

And believe me, the few pixel shaders there are in the carrier made the game unplayable. I had to drop settings that I can now keep at maximum. Try it! (though with either your TNT or 6800 it's not really applicable)

Till now, it makes a good difference in Painkiller BOOH and FarCry. I haven't tried anything else.

Mild agnosticism —the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."
