Timeshift, World in Conflict and CIV: BTS Maybe a little COD4 if I get bored of any of those or some NFS: MW for a quick race fix

I have a craving for some driving action. That's why I started playing TDU again.

I've been comparing GTR2, Live for Speed, TDU (hardcore) and GT HD Concept on the PS3.

I'm trying to figure out what "sim" really means.

So, far...Live for Speed feels most realistic but is the ugliest. GTR2 just sucks in every sense for me. I can't seem to like that game no matter how hard I try. GT HD looks the best. TDU hardcore mode feels pretty good and is the most fun but the throttle and brake controls are off.

I CANNOT get the DiRT demo to run in Vista...I gave up.

I've just been playing FSX recently. I never did finish Crysis as it got really lame half way through and I said F it. I think I'm chillin on the Carrier right now. They need to feed me some women before I go back into battle though. lol

I just started STALKER again for the third time last night, now that I can run the game with AA. So that will keep me busy for a while.

Well here's the story. I saw in the STALKER thread that Jonelo was using AA, he said driver 170.xx or 169.xx, and I don't remember the exact version he gave, but I tried with the 169.xx he mentioned and saw a 60% performance hit with 2x. This driver also busted enhancer support in FSX so I said screw it and went back to my 169.09 thinking I just wouldn't get to play STALKER with AA. Then I tested just to see if AA worked with the 169.09, and by golly it was working fine and the framerates were good. There is still about a 25% hit for 2x but 1600x1200 w/ 2x works fine for me, around 35-45fps, and it looks really good.

Just enable 2x in the Nvidia control panel and set to override.

So I'm no expert but its working and I'm getting decent frames. Makes the game more fun. I also installed a mod that gives the traders a **** load of nice guns, but the game is still balanced becuase they are not easy to get. Jonelo said more in the STALKER thread about AA, maybe 5 pages back, if you want to know more.
