Default Please, some HL2 comparisons

Can someone with a Geforce FX get screenshots to compare full PS2 VS2 and PS1.4 VS2?

Unfortunately I can't organise images, but I've just done a very careful comparison in the game - and there's a definite increase in performance with 1.4 but really no difference in image quality that I can discern - there MIGHT be a sort of different quality in the surface textures, but it's so subtle that I can't even say for sure it's not my imagination - so as with Far Cry the only way I can really tell the difference is by the fluidness of framerate. Again a bit thumbs up for this performance tweak

I have three screenshots showing fx5900 dx9, dx8 and dx9 reflection patch image quality. Do you want me to email them to you?

ah, yes - same here, I've got a couple of screenshots of the same location - one in PS 2.0 and the other in PS 1.4 - so same for me Daneel, if you want them emailed let me know.

Not that I don't appreciate the offer (indeed I do) but the idea is I want a comparison between rivatuner force PS1.4 and PS2.0, not by patches done by Valve or Nvidia.
Thanks though!

For example, the only real image quality loss I saw in Far Cry is in the Archive, where there were the blue glass windows surrounding the hole (very weird reflexions there) that drop to 2 invisible mutants.

If I may ask, would you mind sending them to me? I have a FX 5700, and I play Halo and some other games. I starting to wonder what I'm missing in the dx9 games.

Thanks.
