Hi guys, just wanted to know exactly what all of the Pacific Fighters graphics options mean in the setup menu.

I have a BFG6800 Ultra, but wanted to know which options would increase the graphics.

As well, which options would increase my fps in this sim?

Is Trilinear filtering better than Anistropic filtering for PF?

Is S3TC compression better than no compression of textures? Is there any degradation of the graphics using S3TC compression?

What about the color palette, or the clipping option? What do they actually do? and would they work well with my card?


Sorry for all the questions, just had some time to do more experimenting and wanted to see what all the options meant. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hi, a good place to start, would be to check out either Hunter's PF tips at the top ot this page, or check out Coasties site as well! Both have great settings that will help get your game looking, and playing well.
