Anyone else notice in the Crysis vs. Warhead comparisons that Warhead seems to have no shading on anything? Its like everything has full brightness for some reason...

Also, object motion blur doesn't work on Enthusiast settings in DX9, you have to manually set r_MotionBlur = 5 for it to function.

Wow, I hadn't noticed that. Personally I like the shading in the original Crysis a lot more. But then again, Warhead runs a lot smoother on my computer than the original did. It's interesting to compare the screenshots though.

Looks like they screwed up the lighting in Warhead that explains why it is running faster ...

I don't know if they screwed it up. They implemented the new Global Ambient Lighting system. Not sure if that has anything to do with it. Personally, I enjoy the way warhead looks.

Also, any explanation on how that site was able to render the shots independently in Warhead and Crysis?

No notable differences tbh, they both look the same and DX9 runs better.

It's just a different TOD setting, nothing else. I'm sure there will be plenty of mods that will change it, just like there are for Crysis.

Default Re: Crysis DX10 Enthusiast vs. DX9 Enthusiast

I for one am glad there is little to know difference as I can run DX9 @ 1920x1200 enthusiast but if I run DX10 mode setting any option, even just 1, no matter which one it is I set above mainstream and I have a 3-5 fps slide show.

DX10 Mainstream = 60 fps pegged
DX10 Mainstream + 1 gamer setting = crap

It's so strange
