View Full Version : AEP Readme: For GeForce FX users (shaders 2.0) water=2 question

Yes,

it says in the readme, that for i.e GeForce FX users, a new rendering type is available, taking - presumably - advantage of 2.0 shaders and thus by typing a "2" at the right line in the config.ini, WATER should more or less be rendered as 'perfect'. I guess this should be a way to implement the graphics without the big performance loss that - I at least - used to experience.

Have I misjudged these lines? Because it seems as it´s the more or less usual water turning up in-game? No special about it.

Sorry if I bring up something since long debated and over with. It was a while since I was a FB regular.

Also, I have checked the online FAQ but couldn´t find anything specific on FX 5900 128mb settings. Have this cards performance been discussed and has any conclusion derived from it?

Grateful for any help.

Regards

AFAIK water=0 to water=3 is only used with the graphics setting "Perfect". water=3 uses the 3.0 shader on GeForce 6800 cards.

water=0 does somthing ? i didnt know that, i thought the only available values were 1 2 and 3 ?

if its only usable in perfect mode, what does water=0 actually do ? (not got chance to test it out this second)

You get the perfet water but no reflections or weather affected waves.

I use it and it's far better than excellent mode.

You use water=0 in perfect and it's better than excellent mode? Is that what your saying or am i misunderstanding you.
