Default Re: *** Official Half-LifeČ Feedback Thread!!! ***

was it cl_smooth 0? See here http://discuss.futuremark.com/forum/...=5&o=0&fpart=1
I saw a webpage with a few console commands that said it made HL2 look even better and play better too but i can't remember where I saw it now dammit.

Edit: Nevermind I found this quote:
"Incidentally cl_smooth 0 turns off compensation for other peoples lost packets and choke which may help your bandwidth spikes but in reality leaves people skipping in front of you (ie you see laggers bungee as they move)"

Yeah, because years from now people will still be waiting for their copy of Half-life 2 to get authenticated and unlocked

Great game so far. Only two minor criticisms.

1) Load times... pretty much everyone thinks they are a bit long.

2) The airboat scene... this should have been about 1/10 as long as it was. It was pretty cool for about 5 minutes. After that it was like "will this ever end!"

Aside from that, best game I have played since KOTOR came out

I just beat the game. It is an absolute masterpiece.

I can't wait to play through it again

On my BFG 6800 OC with all 16x1/6vp enabled via RivaTuner.

Driver version is 66.81.

System is a P4 at 3.3GHz with 1024MB of 1000MHz RAM.

I tested at three resolutions and settings for AA/AF.

1024x768
0/0 62
0/4 62
2/4 58
4/4 52

1280x1024
0/0 55
0/4 43
2/4 40
4/4 30

1600x1280
0/0 40
0/4 33
2/4 30
4/4 19

So I will be runing 1024x768 with 2xAA and 4xAF.

Wish I had an Ultra.. but it looks very nice even at the lower resolutions.

I took the FPS reading where you first encounter the minigun here...

I hear ya.
I've had my stream account for a long time.
I already had the game preloaded and was
already paid for via my radeon's free HL card.
My stream is running in in my toolbar and I've had 0
problems playing on and off all day.
This went very smooth for me.

Waiting to the last minit is not a good thing sometimes.

BTW.... I'm running it on my GT "400/1100"
at 1024 with 4xAA and 8xAF.
My god this game looks great!

And for the love of God, can someone please tell us what the console command is to enable caching? I seem to have eliminated a good part of the stuttering by moving my swap file back to my C: drive but there's still some there. It's not really diminished my enjoyment of the game, especially now that I can play in offline mode. More of an annoyance than anything else, especially since there's apparently a cure but no one's told us exactly what to do about it.
