Oh, you have an HD 4890? Well, that saves the trouble for setting things myself, as I have that exact card as well. Though probably not for long, as AMD dropped support for it recently.

Its a decent card for sure. I can max out Counter-Strike: Source and get at least 100+ fps, even during intense fire fights. I also use a ultra high quality config for source games as well. I make high quality configs for all the games I play lol. I'm the best high quality config maker lol. Is there anything you can think of GreatEmerald to make my config better? A new command? Can anyone else think of something to improve the config? Is there anything on the wiki INI I should change?

Nope, like I said, I don't see anything else that would need changing here. I do have some things to change in Mass Effect to make it look better, but that's another topic entirely Tongue

LOL, well I do want to push the engine to its graphical limits, but I don't want to take away from the original developers art direction. For example, I feel bump mapping and bloom effects are unnecessary. IMO, even real time shadows is pushing it. If someone looked at a picture of the Mona Lisa, and felt, I can make this look better, and repaints it, what would happen to all the art in the world? The original art would be forgotten. No one would know how things originally looked and were supposed to be represented. But anyway, I have alot of fun making configs for games and tweaking them, but best of all, playing them tweaked out with max settings! Feels good man.

They have recently brought back support for our cards. You can download the latest 12.6 drivers from the AMD website.

Well, yes, but that'll be the last release for who knows how long. Forever, maybe. The reason why it even exists is that it was already half-done when they decided to drop support, and due to the public outcry they decided to finish it. But hey, at least it reportedly fixes an issue with Wine being able to run Mass Effect properly, so that's something. And Xorg 1.12 support, which should allow things to work smoothly until next year.

Hi,

Im wondering if anyone knows answer to below.
Im playing Unreal Gold. When i start the game and during fly by i can see the floor leading to Na Pali Castle is all shiny and looks like mirror. All things are reflecting beautifly. But when im ingame and im running over that same Na Pali castle entrance i dont see this efect anymore. Floor is normal and there is no reflection effect on it.

Does anyone happen to know what im missing here? Or is this a normal thing?

Im using patch 227i. And I can see same effect while on OpenGL or D3D9.

Thanks in advance.

Fedor

Hey Fedorro,

Yeah sadly it's the way it's normally set within the map. The flyby intro and the actual map of the Nalicastle are in different files, and the mapper (Shane Caudle) either forgot to set that specific surface as reflective, or he chose not to possibly for performance reasons. :/

But yeah I agree it would be much cooler to see it as reflective within the actual map.

Ok here's Nali Castle with the floors made shiny





Some reasons why you might not want to do the mirrored floors
