Are u running the game at max? I mean AA 16xQ?

Here i run all settings on max.. but AA is on 8x.. upper this = little lag. :(

My computer is OK, but still want to buy a new cooler a new graphic card the most advanced one, and go SLI! :P

All game details set to max.
1680x1050, Digital Vibrance set to 25%
16xQ AA / 16x AF
Negative LOD Bias set to -1.0 (need a 3rd party program to fiddle with this, such as RivaTuner)

Here:

1440x900
Digital Vibrance 65% (I like the colours! kk )
8x AA / 16x AF
And about the Negative LOD Bias here is set to "Clamp" (Wonder what's that :D)

BTW, did you noticed that there's no diferrence between Trilinear to 16x AF? :scratch:

BTW, did you noticed that there's no diferrence between Trilinear to 16x AF? :scratch:

Hmm, I have Trilinear and and Anisotropic Filter forced on in the control panel. Can definitely tell it's on.

The Negative LOD Bias setting in the control panel is different from the one I'm referring to, here's a short description of the one you turned on and the difference between the two:


This control lets the user manually set negative LOD bias to "clamp" for applications that automatically enable anisotropic filtering. Applications sometimes use negative LOD bias to sharpen texture filtering. This sharpens the stationary image but introduces aliasing when the scene is in motion.

Because anisotropic filtering provides texture sharpening without unwanted aliasing, it is desirable to clamp LOD bias when anisotropic filtering is enabled.

So if you have AF enabled, it's best to set it to CLAMP, however you can set it to the other option and improve texture quality (not necessarily image quality) "a bit" though you may start notice shimmering while moving, turning, etc and it can be a bit distracting and take away from the image.


Here's another screen shot I dug up. It's a pretty good shot of Lara me thinks! heh:

'FRAPS'. It's a simple little free program that shows in game fps, takes pictures and can record gameplay as a wmv.

Google it.

Hi,

It looks better on the PC version than on the 360 where I played the demo, either my screen is too big or the demo doesnīt run at 1080p.

I hope the full game will look better.:scratch:

You don't need to get down from the other side, you can go up from down to the other side using the grabe-rope :)

Yup.


1. Use the glitch on the left side of the level to get down

2. Use the grab/drop pole trick on the other side to drop down

3. Use the ring pole to grapple and wall climb down and grab the other ring pole with your grapple to get to that side or vice versa from that side to the left side.

@pedro just scroll up to the youtube link and it shows you one of the ways to get down to fight the Nagas

Thanks :D With 19 days to go for the real thing at least thereīs a new section to explore in the extremely short demo.

Btw, has someone been able to pull off a headshot? Iīve been trying like it was on anniversary, waiting for the targets to align, but here ( I donīt know if itīs something wrong with my demo ) the targets just donīt align...

Another thing, Iīve tried standing near a wall and threw a grenade, and Lara just sticks it on the wall, Iīm sensing this will uncover a relic or two in other areas of the game.

I also found a new spot ( new to me at least ) when we fight the first set of tigers, got another secret and was able to stand on top of a pole. Sorry for not having a screenshot but Iīm playing the demo on a 360.

Canīt wait for the final game, where hopefully a lot of things will be fixed, like the camera and graphics ( 1080p ) even legend and anniversary look smoother than the underworld demo, come on :|

When u get down at shiva's statue (the glitch area) you first kill 4 lizards that come walking down, then I shot the red lizard (in the hallway with the invisible wall) and it died, but then I threw a sticky grenade to the hall and it got stuck on the invisible wall, exploded, the lizzard flew out and was standing with his head down. :lmao: Was pretty funny
