Thanks i was wondering how i could make them stay each time i started the game.. this is just perfect petty now i will be tempted to add afew and kill my frame rate

I'll give the game a try with tripple buffering.. i've been playing with no v-sync for a change because i hardly notice any tearing. Mainly because of my low FPS i think, but it could be something else.. i never really noticed tearing in games until i started getting into this stuff... and i really think it diddn't happen much in older games.

For those like me who think the colours in the game make it look unrealistic. Use this

\r_glare 1

Creates a glare effect which makes the colours look less saturated and really realistic! you must try it.. i refuse to play with the old eye-burningly-bright colours now

Default \r_glare value is 2. It's off when the value is 0.

EDIT: ...or at least I think 0 means off

Default My 3 cents worth .....

No problem with the download (after I bought a new hard drive to fit it) on my high speed connection (only took 3 and a half days).

Loaded the demo OK (in only two hours!) after it unzipped approximately 3.25 gazillion files.

Started the game and set everything to max.

Restarted the game after setting everything to max.

Ended up in a boat which I could only steer in a straight line (water effects only so-so).

Beached the boat (sand effects OK, nothing great).

Couldn't figure how to get out of the boat.

Pushed a bunch of buttons which fired my gun and threw a few granades.

Finally, somehow, got off the boat.

Admired the greenery (nice!) and got my ass killed.

Watched sky go dim.

Restarted the game.

Beached the boat.

Still couldn't figure out how to get out of the boat.

Still got my ass killed.

Repeat 27 times.

Check out nV news forums for help.

Read 30,000 posts about setting the game with commands like "rval=1.2 mega pixels x \glare=1 post /rv=overbuffer set "

Unloaded game.

Waiting for Doom III.

Put your computer back in the box and send it back. The key layout is the first thing you see when you start a game and you can't figure out how to get out of the boat?

In Doom 3 you definitely will not be able to get out of the boat.

*sigh* some people just want to try something new.. well they 'try' it with a negative attitude focuisng on the bad points and then go back to their life the way they like it.. pathetic.

No, 1 is on and 0 is off for me.. 2 mean nothing AFAIK.

And SH64, perhaps adjusting the gamma and or brightness in the options will change that. The sand is fairly bright for me, and the glare effect only made it slightly worse for me. But i still think the overall colours in the game look much more realistic with glare on.
