I was just curious what the image quality would be from Very Low upto the full sha-bang. So i set up a pic and changed all the settings to the corrisponding settings. I dont mean Quality Prefrence, I mean going to advanced and changing ALL the settings. Quality preference is all over the shop changing things to different settings. Example shown below ;)
Right, Before i begin, All these were done in 1024x768 as i imagine its going be the most popular setting. Except the last one which is 1600x1200.
Below is Very Low or Disabled!!!
This is ALL LOW!
THen we have ALL Normal. Note that Postprocess Effects is on LOW! Also note for this setting your looking at a 7800GTX or there abouts to run 40+ FPS ;)
Then we have ALL HIGH!
Now we have ALL on VERY HIGH!
And this last one is 1600x1200@85Hz with everything on VERY HIGH!
Very Low and Low, Well, You just want to avoid them completly haha. Normal is ok. Suppose that why they called it normal! But when you goto high you can tell the difference. And very high, Well it does look better but it sucks alot of power for what really cant be described as a huge leap.
And finally the full sha-bang!!! Very nice!!! Look at the detail on the slabs by the tents, its all there. The vibrant color and smoothness. Think im getting about 10FPS roughly which aint bad for a 7800GTX out of its depth. No options for any higher than 1600x1200 but that may be my monitor. It tops out at 1900 and you may need over 2000 for the next options, or maybe the game doesnt support over 1600x1200. I dont know.
God im good to you :)
Thanks I was looking for a basic visual comparison of settings. I hope the guy from TweakGuides will do a guide on ArmA as well.
Very tasty. Even the low setting looks better than the standard Operation Flashpoint highest settings. It looks roughly the same with Kegety's DXDLL and FFUR 2006 2.5.
Can you turn off HDR? I would like to turn off HDR but keep that focus effect on. I forgot what it's called though. Or is the focus effect on all the time to be fair?
I've heard somewhere you can turn it off, but it probably means you lose out on alot of other effects also, not sure though
Is it next year yet?
