So who thinks that those are some decent graphics? Just a yes or no on the poll is needed.

Just a note, this might seem weird, but I just need an opinion.

How much money is at stake here?

I would say those are very nice. It's a shame that screenshots always look better than playing the game.

Not money really. Just a helluva lot of common sense.

But for you Seinfeld, all the dough in the world.

EDIT: Metall, true, they sometimes do. But they generally represent the game for what it is. Because if it is too pre-rendered, it cna be considered false advertising. It was taken from the GDC Conference ages ago (I think).

:| Faked much? Crysis had strong god rays like that too.....In its screenshots....it was also sharp and crisp like that...in screenshots. Its rather, colorless though, very washed out which I put down to too much bloom and HDR (Nice way to try to change my mind on my opinion that Dunia is ugly...)

*sigh* Alright then.

No it isn't faked. But rather a direct shot from the following demos: Part 1 Part 2

"God rays".. nice term. But no. They aren't that. It's called "Volumetric Light" and is a DirectX 10 feature, also seen in Crysis and World in Conflict. It is intended to be strong and crisp, specially when you are in a heavily shaded area.

Not really trying to sway your opinion. I can't do that. But I can prove a point to you.

Actually, they are called God Rays....and Sun Rays...(But I think I got them around the wrong way...God Rays underwater, Sun Rays on land) Google it, look up the CryEngine2 spec's, its all their, its all sourced, post about them to Devs on the Cry Forums, they'll verify they are called God Rays/Sun Rays....Only difference is, the "Offical" programming term is Volumetric Lights, so your right, as am I....Again, don't make assumptions, your not always correct :rolleyes: Also, its not a "DX10" feature...EVERY game that uses DX9 CAN have them, there is nothing in DX10 that is DX10 only, its a load of crap, (Hence why you can hack Crysis DX9 to have them...) (Also why, yes again, Weesals Engine has them)

Also, look closly at that Sun Ray, real close, zoom in on it, and you can see the duplicate areas that have been touched up in Photoshop....FAKED!

I've attached the faked image of Crysis Sun Rays, prove to me, that Crysis has Sun Rays THAT strongly, ANYWHERE in game, and I'll believe you, but from my knowledge, while playing with High DX9 Graphics and DX10 on the cheap, the Sun Rays are NOTHIGN like that, anywhere

It isnt the place in this thread for this discussion. Put it in our other thread. This thread was created to gain public opinion, not our debate.
