When a 10y old engine runs fine with your GTX 280 it is not that unusual but consoles are much simpler. Thats also no card that everybody has got! Also most of your issues are solved with ssds, but you dont get it.
    Oh yes, you still claim SSDīs solve jitter. Wow.. I mean most of the stuff you type is just crazy junk. A focus on multithreading on consoles.. You remind me of some kind of bot, that randomly generates jokes.

    Doom 3 does 3 passes to OpenGL. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wt-iVFxgFWk
    Rage is a different engine. It doesnīt do the same. And multithreading on an engine that runs perfectly is not an optimization. It is redundant. And some even argue that Doom 3 looks better than Rage, due to the 3 passes to OpenGL.

    But I guess you are going to claim your crazyness for some time. And that is a warning to others I guess.

    Can you please try and make a point without insulting the person you are speaking with Paradox Uncreated?

    Looking at the games specifications, I am a little surprised by the huge jump in graphics hardware specs. Can someone explain to me why I need an OpenGL 3 card to play this?

    Obviously you must be some kind of gay club, that defends the mentally weak. I mean you canīt expect sense from someone who defends and upholds legality of toiletwhoring. And ofcourse the logical incorrectness of claiming I insult someone, when they are offensive, and indeed your comment is insulting to anyone with intelligence.

    On the raised h/w spec, I guess you would rather hear the previous idiots opinion and I shall happily leave you to it. And your company can sit there in extreme pretensiousness and think you look cool or become popular, while I live my life far above.

    Peace Be With You.

    Paradox, simple question: You did actually measure the internal timings of the game engine, and then use a DVI capture card to ensure no frames are being lost, or are you just making a few assumptions in your results? Something like:

    I am a "club" now?

    Ever consider the fact that if everyone you talk to is wrong, perhaps there is another separate more sinister reason why you think this way? Or are you really that arrogant?

    I know, I know, don't feed the trolls...

    Apparently Paradox Uncreated is the new Qaridarium. Next he'll be accusing you of being a Nazi baby-eater.

    For the video playback, wouldn't the BINK support in FFMPEG be usable?
