Okay, I played the game and adjusted my video settings accordingly. Maintaining 30fps I was able to play with 4x AA and 8x AF (frame counter in corner) <A HREF="http://server4.uploadit.org/files2/161203-DX2 2002-06-27 08-40-539-31.jpg" target="_new">http://server4.uploadit.org/files2/161203-DX2 2002-06-27 08-40-539-31.jpg</A> Here is a scene where my fps dropped momentarily <A HREF="http://server4.uploadit.org/files2/161203-DX2 2002-06-27 08-40-41-07.jpg" target="_new">http://server4.uploadit.org/files2/161203-DX2 2002-06-27 08-40-41-07.jpg</A>

I always play in 1024x768 because I have an old 19" monitor that drops to 75hz if I go over that setting. Sux for me :tongue:
All of my in game settings were maxed in Dues EX.

First two links work, second doesn't work for me (on I.E., Mozilla or Fireblade).

<b>Flamey</b>, as you probably know, the GF3 is the minimum requirement for this game.

Haven't bothered with the demo yet. Everyone's early reports of the game have kept me from being too interested. I was waiting for Eden's reaction (considering he was so stoked about it), but he's not been around much.
I have heard alot of complaints about it's playability so far, but I can't give you first hand experience.

Nah, nothing.

The two screenies in the one post work. That link by itself doesn't for me.

Is AA in this Demo broke? I see no difference with it on or off but I get way better(50-60fps) framerates with it off(as in this screenshot)

I don't know. That scene looks pretty clean without AA. The other's don't look worse. Even the HUD looks about the same (some noticeable jaggedness). I haven't read anything about the AA being disabled (similar to the initial thoughts about HALO [before the tweaks]).

I'll let you know if I see anything.

If I do end up gettting the demo I'll see what happens for me. Have you tried even lower resolution with high AA, that should make any AA effect more noticeable I would think.

If you're running the full version, some people have reported the latest <A HREF="http://support.eidosinteractive.com/GI/CustomerSupport/patches/PC/Deus_Ex-_Invisible_War/DXIW_1.1_Patch.exe" target="_new">patch(v1.1)</A> helping quite a bit. The demo runs pretty bad on my R8500. Another performance enhancing patch is supposedly in the making. I doubt they'll update the demo, though.

No, DX8.1/PS 1.4 I believe is this games native path, but it will fall back to PS 1.1 and do multi pass. So in shader intensive segments of the game, your going to take a hit that owners of DX8.1/DX9 harware wont have to...
