Tested the glare...

\r_glare 1 makes the scenery to have glare (0 = off)

This effect can particularly be seen with the \r_rendermode 1command. The way this works is quite realistic. An example: if you stare at glaring white beach sand you'll notice that "your eyes" get used to it and you can see more detail. Very cool effect, IMHO

thats my problem ! changing brighness & gamma options changes everthing expet the overbrightend sands!
i tried that on my both LCD & CRT monitors .. so its not monitor related either.

Ended up in a boat which I could only steer in a straight line (water effects only so-so).
.
.
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.
.
.
Beached the boat.
Still couldn't figure out how to get out of the boat.
Still got my ass killed.
Repeat 27 times.

Unloaded game.

Waiting for Doom III.

Try looking up the keyboard commands in the options, or pay attention to the screen that shows the keyboard layout before the demo loads. Sheesh!

Okay, I may have been a little hasty with my ridicule.

Aparrently there IS a keyboard problem for Windows 98 users. If your not running Windows 98, maybe it affects others too. Seems to be rare, tho.

http://forums.ubi.com/messages/messa...neral&id=zytgk

So, I apologize.

I'm sure these bugs will be fixed before the game is released, tho. This really isn't a demo... it's a beta demo. The actual release of the game is several months away.

Regards,

Taz

Well, the Multi-Player Demo isn't supposed to come out until early march. If there are enough "kinks" to work out, I suspect it will get delayed.

What's officially called a "final demo" versus interpratation on my part of a "beta Demo"...

To me, if a Demo is released a week or two before going gold, or a demo is released after going gold... It's usually a final demo.

If a demo is released way before going gold... it's fairly obvious they are seeking out how many people have problems, and trying to kill those bugs... which I would define as a "beta demo".... especially if they release a new demo or a patch to the demo.

It would have been smarter if Ubisoft officially called it a "beta demo" this far from release.... but they didn't.

Regards,

Taz
