Stumpy, can you test with settings cranked up? Like higher res, 16xAF, 4xAA, shader high and ambient standard? 205 fps is really a lot, I'd like to know how performance suffers from higher settings.

My Eigenvalue is bigger than your Eigenvalue.

Thanks man. Can you by chance post the results for 4xAA and 8xAA? It seems (see Midnight's post: http://modetwo.net/d...post__p__207302 ) that 16xAA slows the fps to a crawl. My guess is that the gc is out of VRAM.

according to nvidia's control panel vertical sync reduces graphic tearing by sync'ing the graphics card with the monitor, my monitor is set at 75hz. I dont get any graphics tearing. Theres no visual difference between AA at 4x 8x and 16x apart from the light halo's around lights. my graphics card is pci 16x, doom3 doesn't support sli so the cards are running in an emulated sli mode.

Your monitor might be running at 75Hz, but Doom3 will run at a locked 60Hz which it uses as a tick rate, exceeding this wont really be possible and if it happens will result in strange gameplay consequences. Pretty much the closer you can keep to a constant 55-60, the better it is :)

 

AA doesnt change much in d3, the lines are quite accurate and style of visuals in TDM it doesnt make sense to really go above 4-8x, AF is most likely something that most players would benefit more from as the textures in TDM are pretty damn nice and benefit greatly from it.

 

It would be nice if we could get more information on minimum fps as that is the most important thing for TDM gameplay, too low and the AI starts to become a bit dumb it seems :P

The TimeDemo-link has '.html' attached!

But it´s the right thing, I guess cause it´s about 18 megs.

 

I´ve added the GameSetting and my NvidiaSettings as screenshots.

 

TimeDemo Results:

 

First Run: 58.2 seconds - 51.1 FPS

Second Run: 49.7 seconds - 59.9 FPS

 

Here my specs:

 

OS: Windows XP Pro SP3

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.50Ghz

RAM: 3.25 GB RAM

GPU: Nvidia Geforce 9800 GT (driver date: 11/13/2009, version: 6.14.11.9555)

DirectX: 9.0c

Monitor: Phillipps TV (HDMI)

 

I started DarkMod as my swapfile had the size of 420 megs out of 4589 MB, that says my DirectX Diagnose programm.

 

On my NvidaSettings screenshot are two things missing, that is:

Anisotropic Filtering: 16x

Antialiasing Gamma Correction: on

 

One question about the Ratio: As you can see I use a HDTV. But when I use 16:9 or 16:10, it´s not right! I can see that on the wooden wheel standing in the Training Mission and the rest seems not right. I use my TV with the setting 'widescreen'. When I change to '16:9' (on my TV), it seems to be even more wrong. So 4:3 works best for me, kind of strange.

When I try this in Doom3 there is a kind of 'morphing'-effect added, when I look around. Had the same with the widescreen-patch for the old Thief-games.

 

As for the timedemo: I too had the missing sky, just a hole in the level. (I know this effect from my time using UnrealEd/UndyingEd and I had these famous BSP-Cuts, when I worked unclean)

I read this before in this thread, but oversaw an explanation for it.

What is this 'Bloom'-effect feature? I don´t have such an option!?

 

It was an unofficially supported setting that made it into version 1.0 when it shouldn't have. It was removed from the menu in the update. The reason for removal is that it caused far too many issues for players.

And what was it for? Does it have to do sth. with flowers?:unsure:

 

No :)

Ah, thank you. I won´t miss it. Nice effect, but not important and unrealistic, cause it says it is an effect only see-able through cameras, maybe you could use it for the spyglass only...

 

I always liked the blur effect, as it gives a more "soft" view, more dreamlike and it hides the sometimes hard shadow and pixel borders. However, now that I read the wiki article I am too are a bit suspicious, because I generally don't like to add "camera" effects (if you watch someting with your eye, you will not get technical artefacts like a camera).

 

However, having said this, the human eye is an optical system, with one lens and a lot of photoreceptors, and thus things like lensflare and bloom/bleed can indeed happen. So I think bloom has its place.

 

As for bloom itself, it was removed because it causes a lot of issues, but hopefully the new HDR can be finished soon and you get real bloom (e.g. not just fake) for free with it, anyway :)

Screw realism. Bloom isn't used because it's a camera effect, it's used because it's pretty! (When used well and in moderation.) :)

      Be honest: Who of you have actually finished Cuphead? This game is freaking tough! It might even be harder than Sekiro. Dark Souls is a joke in comparison to Cuphead! :-D

      I vaguely recall someone recently complained about two-sided materials (curtains?) not getting lighting from both sides
      I just found a piece of code that's supposed to do just that
      Where was that discussed? (@nbohr1more?)

      I still play classic Doom (albeit with user-made mods and maps rather than the original campaign) on a regular basis. A game from the early 90's which has still got a healthy following in 2022. Pretty amazing.

      I'm beginning to understand why people who aren't into social clubbing "don't last long" on this project, and why it's so full of holes. When moderators are siding with bullies, by closing down threads that they derail, then I start to wonder if I should support the platform to begin with.
      I'm sure that the core development is solid, but when you're constantly tone policed and bullied, and moderators are playing into it too, then the project will just drive away talent, and replace it with socialites instead. ...and without talent, you only end up with a small skeleton crew trying to do everything themselves.
      ...so Dragofer and Airship Ballet, and all you other socialites, you win. From now on I'll just keep to myself. You'll never be able to do my work, but at least you'll be happy together, and that's what matters to you.
       
      Update
      Actually, I have to revise my statement:
      I actually messaged greebo - the top dog, I gather - about nbohr1more's outburst of insanity below, and since I haven't even heard back from him, I just have to assume that there's not a single core programmer here, who's not backing nbohr's threats. ...and that's bad.
      ...so if you're a newbie reading this, or an honest soul like ZergRush, then just slowly back out of these forums, run, and don't look back. This is nothing more than a cult posing as a game development project, using Thief and IDTech4 to sucker hopefuls in, to do work for them, while trying to cajole them into something going on behind the scenes, which apparently - according to nbohr - is something that should be hidden from the state. These people aren't programmers - they don't even understand things like how to fix the simplest bugs. All they have, is an engine, and an IP, and some sort of fascist social cult. There was some other project I saw being made in the Unreal Engine. Try joining that project. ...or start a project of your own. Anything but this asylum.
      Hopefully that was "divisive" enough for a final post, because at this point I really want people to leave this place. This project is, on a management level, just awful garbage, run by garbage people, apparently from the top down, and I'm just glad that they have a garbage place to stay, together, and hopefully forever.
