I apologize if this has been asked before. Can someone help point me, or offer some advice, on what graphics settings I should select for use with my new BFG GeForce 6800GT? Thanks in advance...

and set water setting in config file on 3 (and use perfect setting with il-2/FB/EAP/PF)

Sorry, maybe I should be more specific. These settings:

Use stenciled buffer
Texture mipmap filter
Texture Compression
Use Dither
User Vertex Arrays
Polygon Stipple

Secondary Color
Vertex Array Extension
Clip Hint
Use Palette
Texture Anisotropic Extension
Texture Compress ARB Extension

Well, this is pretty frustrating indeed. I even CALLED UbiSoft for technical support with this issue. The tech said they were not supplied with any information about preferred graphics settings, especially as it relates to new graphic cards. He said that you would be better off asking on the Internet! Well, imagine that... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif I'm not so sure...but maybe.

You don't see those unless you click the custom buttom. Just click on the GF3/4 button and those will all be set. Just like Hunter told you.

Uh, buzzu, thanks but maybe I'm not stating my question and/or intentions clearly. I realize there is a GF3/4 setting. However, I want to ensure the game is taking full advantage of my graphics card, so that is why I am interested in fine-tuning the other settings I've described by using the "custom" button. BTW, Hunter stated "use geforce 6800 settings" - there is no such option that I know of - so I don't know a way to do "just like Hunter told you."

I use the GF3/4 settings on my 6800GT. It looks fine and 100 fps. I see no reasone to mess with it. If you get something working better, please post it.

I'm not sure why Hunter said 6800 settings. Maybe PF has them.

I have a BFG 6800GT that I O/C to 395/1005. I've been using the beta 66.81 drivers for a few weeks but when I started up PF, I was seeing some artifacts (flashing sea, strange columns of blue rising from the sea, etc.) I uninstalled the drivers, cleaned with driver cleaner and then installed the NEW 66.81 WHQL drivers that you can find from here;


These fixed the artifacts. I'm not sure why they modified the older 66.81 and then didn't call them something else like 66.82, but as long as they work.

I didn't look to see if there was a new setting in IL2FBSetup but now I can't wait to try this.

I am currently investigating these settings myself. Actually, I will be really digging into these hard. If anyone has any insight into this, please share. For example, I have already obtained info on Polygon Stipple, you have it ON right? Doesn't it default to On - Why? With the 6800, polygon stipple seems a cheap way out, as one source puts it: a "cheesy" way to render translucency. OMG, am I learning...
