Well, since we're showing our screenies...
Don't you think the FLAK explosions need to be upgraded?
Stuff blowing up.
NTC Impervious meets it's match...
...and the same destiny met this Shivan Demon destroyer.
...and what is this?...Holy Crap!
That last shot is from a campaign that introduces a true test of strength as far as a computer's ability to run FS2_Open is concerned. It unleashes tons of particle effects which slowed my computer down to <19 FPS momentarily...
Deimos-class corvette is a work of art.
And despite being resource-hogs... I must admit that them shockwaves are indeed drop dead gorgeous.
...these next two shots were actually taken on my old MSI GF6600 256MB, which got replaced by the current XFX 7600GT XXX 256MB card. That did decent work with FS2_Open too, for the most part anyway.
By the way, regarding anti-aliasing.
On Linux, I can set 16xAA from nvidia-settings. Is there any way to enable it on Windows drivers?
Just for some extra zazz for taking screenshots... the best combination of playability and visul quality is at either 8xS or 4x, depending on the mission. Mostly I just use 8xS on FS2_Open, and lower settings for other games.
For example, IL-2 Sturmovik FB+AEP+PF can't really be played properly with AA enabled, the FPS simply drops too low if the shaded water and trees are enabled, which makes flying accurately and aiming practically impossible... If the shader graphics are turned off, it plays much better on higher AA settings, obviously.
