    Hi, FB is optimized for OpenGl and it looks fantastic. But I tried DirectX yesterday and FPS almost doubled. What's wrong with that picture? I was getting 45fps with OpenGl, but 70fps with DirectX. It sure doesn't look as good as OpenGl though. I have everyting set to medium and normal settings.

    Just want to know if it's same on other systems.
    Thanks.

    DirectX doesn't support Vsync, that's most likely why the FSP is twice as high.
