Well, as I've never even played FarCry with HDR obviously I've never played it with HDR+AA.

You know what? I'm gonna' go load up some HL2:LC and see if I can get HDR+AA with that. Ofcouse, I'll post teh screenies.

You will. HDR+AA in Source Engine games was possible on all DX 9.0C video cards.

Well, I could never get it to work on my 6800GT, nor on my two 7600GTs. But, it did work last night on my two 8800GTSs. Pics in a sec...

Okay, some HDR+AA on HL2: LC...











settings were 1920x1440, 16xAA, 16xAF, and all in-game options maxed (including full HDR). Sexy.

Yeah, I can believe that the old 6800GT would chug with such settings. I remember back when I first got that 6800GT. I had the s754 3700 and the ASUS K8V SE Dlx mobo. Dual 80GB HDDs. Man that was a fast rig back then. I played most every game maxed. I remember thinking that the 6800GT would last me well over 2 years cause it just seemed so fast (I was coming from an FX 5950U). Less than a year later I decided it was necessary to go SLi with two 7600GTs. Some much for the invincible 6800GT.

No matter what I do, I can't get HDR to work in FarCry. At best, it appears to be some extra "bloom" effect, but no HDR like what you posted crainger.

How did you get it to work?

I found an old note with a couple of Far Cry console commands.

\r_hdrrendering 7 (other values are 1-11)
\r_sm30path 1
\e_vegetation_sprites_distance_ratio 100
\r_texnormalmapscompressed 1

I think you only need the HDR command. SM3 should be automatically used and the normalmaps command is only meant for performance as well.

Thx man. I'll go ahead and give that a shot a bit later.

I've got a question though...

We have this screen shot thread. Why not have one for videos? You know you can record 30 seconds worth of gameplay with fraps, and an unlimited amount if FRAPS is registered. Why not post some gameplay vids? I'm having one render now. What do you guys think?
