Links there are broken. But you can still snag a copy at ModDB here. Also if you got the hardware/software you can get 7.1 outta the game using Creatives ALchemy. And 21:9 worked just fine once I added my native resolution to "TribesGUIState.ini".

Also MAA forced from the Radeon Drivers works. But I couldn't force any other AA mode and have it work.

*edit*
Lol it also supports "UseNPatches", which is Tru-Form in the TV_CD_DVD.ini. Which would have been great as you potentially bump the poly count through tessellation. But I doubt the game models where built for it and it doesn't appear to work at all because the drivers no longer support it.

I would have used that ModDB link if I'd known about it. At least my optical drive gets some use with me being ignorant.

I did try downloading from tribesuniverse.com and it did work for me, but the WaybackMachine isn't the best spot for downloading anything. Took about 90 seconds for the download to start and downloaded at a trickle @ 50 - 300 Kbps.

Morphological AA does seem to work. Surprising how much cleaner the edges look even at this resolution when AA is used. It seems like just yesterday I was struggling to run this at medium settings, 1024 x 768 on my 9700 Pro, 768 MB RAM, Athlon 1900+ system. Never did I imagine I'd bee playing it at 1440p, pegged 144 FPS, 8xAA, etc. GPU does show about 60% utilization though.

As I've been very vocal about in other areas of this forum, I RMA'd my Vega 64, and am now using my old, partially melted, Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 (Windforce OC), which is the card I used until December, 2018.

Above I posted the Vega 64 ran this game at 8xAA, 1440p, 144 FPS at 60% utilization.

I am here to report that the 7970 (coupled with a Ryzen 2700+) does even better.

The card is not capable of doing 144 Hz at 1440p, but at 60 Hz, it runs at about 20% utilization with all of the previous settings. It even drops to its base clock from 1000 Mhz to 300 Mhz on occasion and still maintains 60 FPS.

Another note: I noticed AA was working with Morphilogical AA, but it wasn't showing up in my screenshots. Was enabling MAA a placebo for me? Then I remembered the design behind this AA method prevented it from showing up in screenshots. Or maybe I'm crazy. Regardless, AA is not visible on the below images.

I have to disagree. This game is 16 years old. I think they did a great job catering to engine limitations with graphic design (low poly structures/characters because armor, etc.). The terrain has sharp textures - everything is intentionally colorful and borders cartoonish.

The only thing I would like improved is the draw distance. When flying around in the knucklecraft (or whatever it is) most of the world is lost in grey silhouette. Gameplay could be improved by more precise mouse movement; there's a minimum degree of (something like) 0.01 which makes it tough to get precise when sniping.

I really loved/love the jetpack/ski dynamic though.

Last of the bunch. Warning: spoilers below.

I miss Tribes game-play. Tribes Ascend is still played. But there is usually only a server or two with a enough people to play and often it's a 24/7 one map server

Done with Tribes: Vengeance, I went to put its CD back in my case (which until last month, I had not opened in 10 years, probably).

Along the way, I found my disc for F.E.A.R. I never got a proper experience with that game. Low framerates, low resolution.

From October, 2006:

DAT FRAME RATE


From this week:

DAT SHADOWS (BoD did it better)


DAT TEXTUREWORK AND BUMPMAPPING (though the bumpmapping isn't very evident in this poor shot)


DAT HORROR SCENE


DAT DARKNESS (Ray Tracing might be awesome here)


DAT BULLET TIME (Forgot how necessary this was. Got my ass kicked six ways to Sunday by the first two dudes encountered)


Took some work to get it working... WinXP SP 2 Compatibility mode, disable full screen optimisations. Otherwise you get a black screen at startup.

After playing and screenshotting T:V, I've been taking more screenshots in games with the intent to post them in this thread. I feel like a part of me was just reborn.

There is a fix for the low frame rates in FEAR. It's caused by the game using DirectInput. You can find the fix at... https://community.pcgamingwiki.com/f...input-fps-fix/

FWIW I'm not having frame rate issues. The low FPS screenshot I posted was from when I was running the game on an X800 Pro POS.

Below: 198X. A second game in a row that I've played where the protagonist is a lesbian taking non-human identities. More review to come in the "Games Completed August 2020" thread when created.

Sized down to 1280 because they look better scaled down.

Not proud of my numbers, but holy **** did this take determination to finish. Last arena-style level was nuts. I can see why this DLC got so many negative reviews.

Default The Witcher 2

Not trying to flood the thread with screenshots of the same game. I've narrowed it down to seven of the 150 or so I've taken so far as I play through this a 2nd time.

I'm really appreciating the style of the graphics; painted, high contrast, colorful.

Default Doom Eternal (lowest settings, can ya tell?)

^ Witcher 2 looks good.
Goes on sale for $1 in my region, keep skipping it because I'm not sure I'll be able to enjoy it after Witcher 3.

Those Doom shots are on lowest settings? I am surprised because other than some lighting flaws, they look great.

For Witcher stuff, the two are tightly related in lore, but very different games. W2 is clunky and seems to be testing "open world" waters with "go anywhere" but limiting where you can go by chapter, and lack of fast travel. Combat is more strategic, but I'm playing on easy, and in this case it's button mashing. The biggest thing is you can't just drink a health potion in battle and improve your health when you're losing. You have to drink a regen potion before a battle, and it lasts for X amount of time. Other potions apply with different stats, but toxicity is your limiter for how many potions you can drink.

I'm reminded of the pitfalls of the original release, when plants and books counted against your inventory weight and you had no "safe space" for storage, and how wonderful it was when they released patches that unrealistically fixed these gameplay thornsInTheSide. There was a plethora of other issues as well. They've remedied it, and I expect similar behavior with Cyberpunk.

I like the pacing of W2 better than W3, but W3 was far superior. As I've said, it's the best game I've ever played. W2 is definitely worth playing. CD Projekt Red has consistency in fully fleshing out side quests and making everything you're doing seem consequential. The decisions you make in the main quests significantly matter.

Anyway, here's some screencaps of F.E.A.R.

Multiplayer powered by GameSpy! At least LAN is supported.






This scene gave me goosebumps (again). Fantastic.



Seriously - who in the actual **** would place a dumpster here? There's no way for a truck to get in at this angle.



It's Bullet-Time, looking drunk.



I remember the first time I saw these types of effects in this game. I couldn't believe that my PC was creating it. Totally amazed.

Default Witcher 2

So many screenshots - each one of them fantastic. To keep variety important, here are the next batch:



Had to edit this one to keep it SFW. lol as if the edited version is SFW. Stop browsing Rage at work. Oh wait we all work from home now. If we work.




Didn't expect this outcome from the "collect X harpy feathers" mission.




It's a dead harpy but I do love those ground and NPC textures.




This tower has some significance...




Oh, there it is.




Vergen with good lighting... that's it.

Default Got back into F.E.A.R.

Never rappel down from a chopper into enemy fire. Amateurs.



Check out my Blender render.



I forgot about these creepy invisible guys. No sound, melee attacks only (thank jeebus). Come at you from any direction.



They kept the design of the game simple, and that put a lot of people off (including me). Replaying it today, I think the simple design has aged very well. Take a moment to appreciate this basic hallway. Ignore our friend to the left.



Up close, the textures are not great. But from here, I thought this looked photorealistic.



I timed the screenshot at the same time her camera flashed. Backshadow++



That belt buckle is hilarious.



The last time I saw an elevator looking like this, I saw from above it looked like...



... this. :shudder:
