As expected, I also got terrible slowdowns during some effects. In particular the blurr effect when you get hit during a fight.

But it does look very nice, the HDR effect is quite nice, kind of like the "bloom" effect in Deus EX2.
The heat haze look awesome too. but this game needs more bumpmapping, and not only on yer weirdo guns.

Ill have to install the original game later and see how it performs on my 6800 in contrast to the demo#3

I'm a little confused. The screenshots you show are not from the demo in your link. The demo in the link is the new one from the original game. It takes place in the military base. Your screenshots are not from that level. Please if I am mistaken, be so kind as to set me straight.

All the links posted in this thread lead to Demo 3 which is the military base level from the original game. For the life of me I cannot find a demo for Battle Out of Hell anywhere. Don't think this demo has been released yet.

Regardless, in those screenshots, the HDR is way overdone. It's like Dreamcatcher went from one end of the graphics spectrum to the complete opposite. I hope they're able to optimze this. The original game had some really tight coding (except for shadows) that ran exceptionally well even on lower end hardware.

I love the new effects, really creates this surreal look. The performance is not bad but it is lower then the retail version. I noticed a significant FPS loss in the airfield.

I don't know if this is HDR, It looks more like Bloom Effect done in other games.

Your 6800U has mutated to an NV50. I bet you weren't expecting your 6800U to mutate.
