The password for the zip on the filefront site is: specular. It's on the same page as the zip.

Well I just got done playing some. I like how it looks and stuff... the HDR IS a bit overdone but I think it fits in this game. I am just very disappointed that it wasn't a new level... I dislike that level very much from the original PK :\.

I'm using the 66.70's ..bad performance here too...has to be unoptimized...those hdr effects are a bit much...makes the game feel more like you're in a dream rather than make it seem more realistic...imo at least. Examples...

Look at the ground in this pic, mind you, all that light reflecting off the ground is coming from one light ....it's cloudy weather, so it's not reflecting from the sun


For a warehouse with dim lighting...this object almost requires sunglasses to look at


I prefer the regular engine over this so far. Course, it would have been nice had they given us one of the levels from the expansion, rather than an old level with hdr....not much to really give you an impression of how the expansion will play. But the effort is appreciated.

Just thought of something....Painkiller was released in April..a month AFTER Far Cry....this expansion will be released next month, with hdr and sm3.0 enabled....yet Crytek, still doesnt even have a patch out for HDR....(or 3dc for that matter) ridiculous. I have to give dreamcatcher credit for at least doing something aside from abadoning the community and counting all the $$ they made ala crytek.

I think it looks like a dream because it sort of is... it isn't really reality.

Before you give them props might want to check into the slowness issues the two users are reporting as I would be impressed if the performance is there...

Also anyone have SM2.0 vrs SM3.0 screen shots and FPS scores to see how much SM3.0 helps?

I dont think sm3.0 is in the demo, I think this is only hdr. HDR can be done on any dx9 card.
