Performance Tweak Recommendations

Can anyone recommend any performance tweaks?

My copy arrived today and the performance is significantly worse than STALKER was. Ive managed to disable shadows by following a tweak guide for the original STALKER.

Playing windowed it seems theres no way to have anti aliasing. The game options dont work, neither does forcing it through my Nvidia Panel.

Im gutted,it doesnt run nearly as well as i thought it would,almost max with 8xaa and 4xaf with all high settings(texture/object detail/view distance all nearly full)and i was getting like 10fps

Utterly dissapointed,ive managed to put them up higher now,as it seems fine when im out of that start area

but still lower than i thought it would go.

Its obviously an optimization issue,as games that looks twice as good didnt bother my pc when i had my 8800gts

if your using the games AA....there is really no AA in CS... it uses deferred shading again. your better off turning it completely of and just forcing your desired level in the Nvidia control panel.

I'm pretty sure the ingame AF doesn't work either because on my 280's it makes no visual difference at all. although if I disable it in game and force it through the nvidia control panel I see the difference.



also go to your user.ltx which is located in the public documents/STALKER-STCS and holds your savegames. logs,and screen shots open it and change r3_msaa on to r3_msaa off.

start here;
http://www.tweakguides.com/System.html

this will get you started to having your system running properly for general gaming. invaluable tips and easy to read. 'A class' site IMO.

this site is famous also for game specific tweaking. they list STALKER ShOC in their full guides.

alas, CSky isnt there yet but it would be worth having a browse over the pages for ShOC and see if there are some pointers that might apply to CS.

almost... it turns off Multisample anti-aliasing. which, unless you're fucking superhuman you won't notice any visual difference in CS.

what you WILL notice however if you are normal or even above normal is just the performance drain it puts on your system if it's left on.

Wow, Clear Sky may not be the best looking game, but I do think ATM it's in top 5. Where did you get a game that looks twice as good ?! You're probably one of the guys that thought SoC graphic's are dated, and still think - in a less proportion of course - the same thing about Clear Sky!

I'd bet he will say Crysis

it's hard to beat the visual quality of Crysis at Maximum. details

IMO Clear Sky is still beautiful and in the top 5 as well...but obviously it's designed to be darker then a game like Crysis.Crysis really has it beat in the Vegetation department and the water department....but it has to it's hard to pass of a tropical based game with shit vegetation models and crap ass flat water.

damn Vegetation in CS and SOC looks really bland regardless of how high the details are.like ps2 bland ...everything else is fine though.
