He means that older cards can be quite crippled (extreme loss of fps) when enabled, whereas newer cards wont suffer that much fps loss.

lol, i just looked at the avatar picture, ok thx jpk then. I played around a bit and lowering the shadow stuff is visible, when shadows become long (lets say you stand 5m away from a box) the "stairs effect" can be seen on the ground. Very annoying is, that distortion makes the water look cool but a...

Boss was VERY easy. First you run around him in circles (as every enemy in this game, they fire way too slow) so all bullets will shoot "behind" you. Circle-Strafing was also the easy way to chainsaw the endboss in Doom1 ;) Disable a bunch of forcefields by railing or e-gunning them, switch to rocke...

Copy Protection is a joke, it will always be hacked. The only working system is a registration with a key (like Halflife STEAM) but this works for multiplayer only. Singleplayer games are easy prey for everyone, even if it had working protection, one player buys it and gives it to his buddies, every...

Because there is stuff like "Ground Shadows Texture" AND "Shadow Texture Quality" AND "Shadows Level" as i think the shadows have kinda hard borders (flashlighting through a fence usually doesnt make a razorsharp shad...

next problem: after killing the last generator the sequence comes up, well i cant tell you what it does because the frame rate is below 1. I can play smooth up to the teleporter. But when i teleport back from the "4 generators with red-power fences" thing the problem starts. The "Kryo Chamber Room" ...

Flamethrower usually does the generator-kill-job within a second, without upgrades. Flamethrower is BEST for destroying stuff, also crates or supply boxes, just give crates etc ONE short shot of fire and wait one second.
Generators need more but one second (lets say 20 fuel units) should be enough

Yeah, it causes my framerate to decrease but that is just normal. It is some heavy grafic load.
