Sorry OWA (and everyone else), I guess these stupid free filehosts donīt work but for some reason it works for me. Anyway, just PM me your email address and I will send you the 170kb PDF file.

For the MegaUploads one you need to enter the 'phrase' (in OWA's case it was "TDG") in the box and click Download. Then you wait for 45 seconds while it makes you stare at the adds, then it downloads.

No I didn't get the guy on the catwalk because it told me not to...I never even thought of actually going in anyways...maybe I was too slow in getting the other 2 guys (or was it 3?) and the place was falling apart too much. Oh well. Maybe I'll have to try it again...

I'm asking for a TrackIR4 for christmas this year...I can't wait!!!

Hahaha. Ya,...we'll have to see what DX10 does for it although I doubt it will do much.

Actually that is about what the game does look like for me ! I just wish I was getting a consistent 20-30fps, most of the time it hovers there but at certain points it just dive bombs and removes the feelings of realism.

1920x1200 -- 2X FSAA -- AF 16x

My system at current is Crossfire X1900XTX OCed, Pentium D @ 4ghz, 4GB DDR2.

However, my younger brother just got a new Core 2 Duo rig, with a 7950 GX2, and it runs really nice for him, so this game is deffiantely a CPU hog.

I really love the game, I'm playing it with a Logitech force feedback joystick, but knowing that it brings my system to its knees I shudder to think what it must play like on older systems.... The reccomended system specs are a complete joke

I think it looks that good with all sliders maxed, but even when you set it to "Ultra High", the sliders are nowhere near maxed. With everything maxed the performance is horrible.

This was taken on my system...
