Thats right, Everything in my damn options/video/advanced is set to HIGH and has the sliders fully maxed, but I can not turn on volumetric smoke (don't care bout smoke) or wet surfaces - why can't I turn on wet surfaces?

Its blued out, instead of yellowish or Lit Up. Cant' click it

Now why not?

Hear this, when I play crysis (I have DX9 and windows XP) I use edited configs that enable the amazingness of DX10 textures/shaders etc.

I'm talking realistic flames and smoke, particle effects, its all there, EVEN - WET SURFACES!!!!! I never noticed that one til the last level on the carrier - each raindrop had its own drop, and water would run down the surface of everything- EVERYTHING! (and it looked better IMO compared to CS wet surfaces videos) And I had 45 FPS on that ship on the last level... with all settings on extreme max high DX10 shaders etc.

So I expect some QUALITY of graphics out of CS - and the game needs to stutter less.. (like every time I open inventory or search loot/corpse 1 second delay)

Those are considered by the game to be DX10 only features, that's why they're greyed out in XP. Dunno whether they can be turned on via config, but I'd be keen to hear whether that's possible.

I saw nothing of turning it on for XP in tweakguides and Clear Sky tweak files~

So, Until the modders fiddle with it, we're SoL

All that's needed to enable it was turn it on through the USER.LTX file.

So did you get soaked??

And I want pics of wet t-shirts NAO!!!

And also how do you turn on objects dynamic lighting on manually in the game?? I can run DX10 fine but whenever I try to use objects dynamic lighting it crashes on startup and gives me a message that I must have a card with version 1.1 pixel shader or above

WTF I HAVE A FUCKING 9800GTX CARD IT'S 3.0 PIXEL YOU DUMB GAME.

i have the same problem pixel shader 1.1 error ....i got the dx10 features on via the user LTX file ... i need to know what options in the video setting enabe those dx10 shaders .....like ummm resolution settings to enable the wet surfaces? my game crashes with pixel error above 1325 ? the SSAO settings? ..i heard if you over medium it crashes with the pixel shader error aswell. need to know all the qualitys setting sliders that enable the dx10 effects i heard that the game is missing key textures for the water that streams down the walls ...and some dx10 users are trying to enable then on some forums? something about lines instead of water. i been trying alot of stuff even posted the 1.1 pixel error on the ati tech forum waiting for help for 2 days no replys yet? basic game video settings maximum it also crashes with pixel error 1.1 my card is these specs: ATI RADEON™ X1950 PRO core (580MHz) 512MB GDDR3 onboard memory (1400MHz) Windows Vista™ 3D environment Support 36 pixel shader processors 256-bit Memory Bus AGP 8x Pixel Shader Version 3.0 Video Acceleration of: MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, WMV9, VC-1, and H.264 Dual DVI Tv-Out i dont understand why ether it says pixel shaders 3.0 ?? maybe something else is not allowing me to enable wet surfaces and fog effects??? ALSO mite add this info :Pixel shader 1.1 is supported on DX8 cards ??? taken from web? is this true?
