fun,vivid and colorful.I liked it.

so far SS2 and FEAR can make 7800s flex their muscles.I expect Oblivion to do the same.

*edit2* turning off NV/ATI Speedup in the BIOS seems to have fixed it
What option is that ? In the motherboard BIOS you mean ? Which section is it in ?
I fixed all my issues by turning off fast-writes, re-installing official chipset drivers, and lowering the overclock on my gpu.

This is game is horrible. Played 2 mins and immediately uninstalled. I got tons of stuttering, this is why I currently hate this game, I think.. I'll give it another go with the next set of drivers.

Yeah, it's in the BIOS on the Neo2 boards but it's hidden. Go into your BIOS and place the curser over the Cell Menu(but don't press ENTER) then you hold down F2+Shift/release/quickly press F3+Alt, when you see the curser move over to Standard CMOS Features you'll know you have unlocked NV/ATI Speedup(takes a few goes to get it), you then enter the Cell Menu and you will see the new option.

Not bad, but...why are there no decals? This is the first game in years that i've found that weapons don't leave marks on anything. Hopefully the full game will have. Also, shoot the windows and glass goes flying and a breaking sound plays, but the window stays in! The lack of realtime reflections also left me miffed, although seeing as the entire level was made of glass buildings and shiny silver things, it would probably kill any system.

good point on decals one of the major awespiring factors of FEAR is its 3d looking bullet with particles bouncing off the wall.totally amazing.

well I dont expect such a thing from SS2 considering how many bullets/beams flying around,simple decals would be nice.

btw I checked to see if there are any idle weapon animations.I got dissapointed there was non except for simple breathing movements.

I think its pretty nice if we could have some idling animations for those big colorful toys.

two games that I likedtheir idling weapon animations were Halo and Dead Man's Hand.

hmmm....just an update, even though turning off NV/ATI Speedup originally stopped the freezes the game still wasn't running properly, i was getting some sort of hitching when a lot of action was on the screen, i read in the thread over at Guru3D that with onboard sound if you lower the number of sounds down from 25 to 15 the game runs very smooth, this worked for me. I've re-enabled NV/ATI Speedup and so far i haven't had any freezes

ps, i also reinstalled my SB Audigy ZS and set the number of sounds to 30 and all's good

Did you guys see any of the SS2 techdemos? The one where they were showing off the ragdolls and such? WTF happened? I don't think I saw one display of physics in this entire demo.

Man, such a huge dissapointment. Nothing like the other Serious Sam's. Just a weak console port of a wannabe Serious Sam. Weak I saw this at E3 and I knew it was gonna suck

btw here is how to unlock all weapons,just in case somebody didnt know already.

Bring down console with ~
Type 'sam_iEnableCheats=2' (without quotes) and hit enter

press ESC and F1 to open the cheats window to select.GIVEALL unlocks weapons.

It was fun. I'd be happy if it came bundled with my video card.
