Everyone with powerful rigs should use these 2 tuts, my game looks amazing and looks the way it should have been made. Note that the tool used in the second link works for Nvidia GPUs only, another reason why I love Nvidia!

That sharpening mod is balls. It makes the game look horrible. If you have a powerful system and don't like the blur of FXAA, just use SSAA.

As for tweaks, I just use this config maker and put everything on "DNA Extreme" and the game looks much better. Of course, unless you have a pretty beefy system it will bring it to it's knees at those settings.

I don't think they care and they will either patch it after or let the modders fix it. We know their defaults are more Xbox360 fitting and in ways, the game looks worse than Oblivion, especially the fidelity of the textures and shadows.

Bethesda might care once they see the good PC sales figures though. Over 240K sales already might raise their eyebrows.

Didnt the Bethesda head honcho say its a pain to develop the pc version because of the different systems, configurations, etc. I wont blame them for making the game suitable to the lowest common denominator of PCs. You will be surprised how many PC gamers out there have antiquated systems, who still expect to play this game without upgrading their hardware.

It would be a pain compared to consoles yeah but consoles sell more, so it's a no brainer for them. It's no secret that newer versions of DirectX(DX10/11) allow you do do such effects faster and easier.

If PC games had more sales then it might be worth them making their games in DX11 because it's backward compatible, but it's just easier and quicker for devs to use DX9 and port.

The game is not demanding at all, just seems like a performance bug in some places. Single cards are powerful enough.

The Ultra Extreme settings in the cfg maker caused my game to crash and behave erratic (runs smooth and then performance nose dives randomly for no reason).

That's crazy. It only uses about 1200mb on my setup. Of course I'm at a lower resolution, but I wouldn't think it would make that much of a difference.

Of course, when I first installed and played the game on default Ultra setting there was a point in the very first cave that my vram usage was like 1400mb. The next time I loaded the game it was only about half that in the same spot so there might be a bug that's not releasing video ram and that's what you are seeing.

Pretty sure I read it's something to do with Transparency AA. I think having it enabled in the ini and in the cp will cause this issue.
