With the "PC" of your signature and 256 VRAM ? The mod increase the VRAM usage 60 or 80 MB

Is a nice mod , but need a fix

Definitely enjoying this a lot more than the first

Okay a little update:

Im playing this on XP Pro, Sp3 (Perfomance Edition) on my MB Pro
I dont have it maxed out, but i have it fairly high, plus a terrain mod that ups the textures.
This game is running great!

Im leaving the settings where they are and gradually upping AA to see how far i can get before ****ting out on performance

Yes it can. ATI's alpha AA taxes the hardware less than Nvidia's. A 4870x2 is basically two 1GB 4870s, and somehow in your mind SLI is enough for those settings and Crossfire isn't?

Just started playing. Surprised with the performance was expecting no to be able to run it at DX10 but with all maxed out, except AA as SSAO i get decent frames.
The volumetric light and god rays like the ones seen in the beginning are just in that area or all trough the game?
So far i saw very little of them.
