I know in Crysis there was a very simple way to unlock the DX10 features while using xp, I was wondering if there was a way to do it in S:CS?
There isn't a known way yet. You can change the user.ltx file to say the features are enabled, but it doesn't actually enable them unless you are in dx10 mode.
I see, thanks for the info. I hope someone finds a way, that dynamic water effect looks too cool, and I don't feel like dropping 10 fps to run in vista.
Well someone (cant remember their name) has tweaked their user.ltx so that they have better FPS but with the same visual goodness and with better depth of field. However, he made it in DX9 mode and as soon as you change settings, it overwrites the tweaked user.ltx. What I'm going to is set it up in dx10 on high settings then merge it with the tweaked file so I get the best of both worlds :D
