Default Force PS 1.1/1.4 in Halo?

what's the command line to run to force this?

I just got my XFX 5600U (I'm @ 450/850 right now), and I wanna kick it to DX8 path shaders so it's as playable as the GF3 which I just took out...

The dx9 shaders IMO don't add enuff to the game to warrant me using them in Halo... PS 1.1 looked plenty good to me...

...plus, I'm not gonna use 52.13 till I know whether or not they'll turn off a 5600U's fan...



Thanks in advance...

Your shortcut should look like this:

C:\wherever you installed halo\halo.exe -use11 (for PS1.1)
C:\wherever you installed halo\halo.exe -use14 (for PS1.4)

Has anyone noticed any difference in IQ or effects going from 2.0 to 1.1-1.4?

I can't see any difference between 1.1 and 2.0, but the framerate is noticably faster with 1.1.

Anand said that PS2.0 looks better in his recent NV38/R360 IQ article. Too bad he didn't show any screenshots illustrating this, as I'm sure I'm not the only one interested in seeing the differences, and where they are in the game. Of course Anand's screenshots didn't show much at all

I noticed a little extra luminescence in halo on the pixel-shaded stuff...

Not much tho...

Not enough to justify the (45.23 anyway) perf. decrease...

Yeah, for real...wtf was up with those tiny screenshots anyway..?

I personally see no differences [edit] between the versions of PS (and I don't need glasses).

Until I see screenshots to compare and it is plain as day, PS2.0 is all hype and not worth the perf hit (which is huge on the FX5900U).

52.13 and 52.14 are showing serious benifits from using the new shader command organization methods... Yes, there's still a hit, but a considerably smaller one then there has been...

Sorry if that previous post was left-fieldish...

Here's the official FAQ from Gearbox / Bungie / MS. It discusses PS 1.1, 1.4 and 2.0.

Oh...lol! No worries.

I'm not even using any of those yet, still using the 45.33. I'm going to wait for the official release and try again.
