FW 169.09 I'm playing @ 1920x1200 2xAA, All advanced settings on "high", except post prossessing on "medium". Not the best frame rate I've ever seen, but its steady and looks great

Wow - this actually works! I am now able to play with somewhat smooth framerates at 1920x1200 and it looks a helluva lot better than medium settings! Thanks for posting the link!

Looks like the main thing he did to make it look better was increase the contrast.

These are my new settings!

I think they are near perfect.

Everything "HIGH" in game.

Autoexec file:


ai_UseAlternativeReadability = 0

r_UseEdgeAA = 0

r_sunshafts = 1
r_UsePOM = 1

e_water_ocean_fft = 1

q_renderer = 3
r_colorgrading = 1

r_TexResolution = 0

e_detail_materials_view_dist_xy = 8192
e_terrain_normal_map = 0
r_TexturesStreaming = 0

That's almost exactly what my game.cfg looks like. I've added battle dust in mine also and bumped up the texture Z distance to 256 I think and shadows to 2048 which really make little to no difference but don't hurt performance at all either.

Aside from that, I'm using these tweaked cvar files I got from this forum.

Can't you just post the specific config so people can copy and try it easily?

nope it loads automatically, but you should use the name "system.cfg" instead

not from work I cant but if you take those cvar files from that link and replace all the ones that come with the install and then copy everything SOWK listed and add battle dust and zdistance you'll have exactly what I'm using.

The retail version seems to be reading and using my game.cfg file in the SP demo's folder. wierd.

Yeah that is weird.

Here's what I'm gonna do. I like to keep it simple, so using the same as Sowk, then adding zdistance on textures/vegetation and battledust, that's it. I'll just look the commandvar rundown on the one on tweakguides.com through for some extra goodies, but this is probably what I'm gonna stick with. Part of reason is that a lot of people seem to be reporting areas in the retail that's even more intensive i.e. more demanding than most of the demo. This kinda discourage me from going far from the standard high settings in DX9
