Realm Wars ATI Tweaks Available
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
David Chait was nice enough to bundle together some tweaks for the Realm Wars demo available from GarageGames. This application demonstrates the power of their Torque engine (used in Tribes 2), and the tweaks enable special features for owners of ATI's just-released video card, the Radeon 8500.
The very small download (16 KB) includes simple instructions for new 8500 owners to enable both Full Scene Anti-Aliasing (FSAA) and Truform support. Here's a clip from the ReadMe:
F9 key now toggles an FPS counter in the top-right of the display.Be sure to read through the rest of the ReadMe for details on how to install in the patch. Thanks to Chait for his extra work on these goodies for Radeon owners.
- and = keys (normal keys) decrease and increase FSAA respectively.
When FSAA is on, a 'SMOOTHVISION' badge appears bottom-right.
Note that FSAA=1 is no AA. FSAA 2 is 2 samples, 4 is 4 samples.
Should work on any Radeon-or-later ATI board, with latest drivers.
(THIS IS MAC OS ONLY).
\ key toggles on and off master NPatch/Truform support.
[ and ] keys decrease and increase NPatch level.
when Truform is on, a 'TRUFORM' badge appears bottom-right.
note NPatchLevel==0 is effectively off, default is 2, max is 7.
Should work on any R200/Radeon8500 chipset board, Mac or Win.
