Dude!

If you couldn't play PM for five minutes, it tells me you just don't like FEAR period.

And dude, if you think POS Payback can't be as bad.......

I won't say anymore. If you actually spend money for POS Payback, don't say I didn't say, "DUDE"!

Bum!

Ah well. Not a huge deal. FEAR's soft shadows weren't the best anyway.

But were they REALLY on. With my game if I turn on Soft Shadow AND AA I get AA fine, but the shadows are the solid ones.

If you got it working post a screenshot. Maybe 2AA is the key?

Although from memory. Monolith said AA + Soft Shadow would never work on the Jupiter Engine. It's an engine fault, not a driver one.

Well AA + Soft Shadow works in the game with a slight trick. First turn on soft shadows and confirm they work in the game. Leave them on, then choose 4xAA and apply. When you return to the game you will see softer shadows and a blend of AA. It works until you exit the game, then you have to do it over. Problem is, soft shadows tend to bring down frame rates quite a bit.

DUDE! lol. I was talking about Payback bro. I've made it 15 mins so far in PM.

After playing Crysis and COD4. This game looks hella bland. But, it still seems fun.

Well just started playing this. I played through FEAR and Extraction Point. I gotta say, although PM feels cheaper than Extraction Point. It's a lot more fun so far.

Well just finished it. Not bad, but going up against other games I've recently finished. Crysis and Mass Effect. It just didn't hold up. I hope this is the end of the F.E.A.R. franchise. Best to let Monolith continue the story I think. Can't wait for the proper sequel.

Also if you are listening Monolith. It's time for Shogo 2. kthnx.

Screw Shogo 2, I'd rather have a new NOLF game.
