Ah, but that's the beauty of it. There are options for either. As a matter of fact though, If I disable HDR and HQSS, I can play at 1280x1024 with 2xAA/8xAF and still have VDM. VDM is used quite nicely in this game IMO. Since I've been playing with it enabled, the game looks a bit flatter without it.

Yeah, having a choice is good. I think I would have been perfectly happy at 1280x1024 running the SM 1.1 path if I hadn't started out with SM 3.0 options all on. It just didn't look right running in SM 1.1 mode after that. I did have to drop my resolution to 1024x768 like most have but in the end, it looked better to me having all the options on and running at a lower res. Like you noted, once you play with VDM on, things look too flat when you go back to having it off. Same with HDR. After playing with it on, things look too dull with it off.

I'll choose the HDR @ 1024 x 768 over higher rez without HDR anytime. It just 'breathes more life' into the gameworld of CT

I started playing the game with the SM1.1 mode when I first got the demo. Was quite impressed with it already. But once I tried the SM3 mode with all effects, I didn't want to go back.
