RAGE TEXTURES

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So im playing RAGE atm, and liking it so far, good atmosphere and the character animations and personality are great, Ive also made some tweaks to the cfg files so that it keeps a constant 8k texture load rather then the 'auto' system.

However, is this really how low some textures are in town? seems a bit poor?

Yes, unfortunately some of the textures are poor. You can read my review on it if you like. I wrote it before the game was updated with an image enhancement algorithm that you can turn on in the options, but all it does is just that (and it requires CPU processing power, my Q9550 at 3.4 Ghz is no longer able to sustain 60 fps at all times, and while it only dips to around 55 fps, the stutter is obvious, so the engine doesn't handle framerate drops very well).

Carmack admitted in his Twitter account that there wasn't much else they could do because the original art is not of higher quality than that. This is what happens when you program with consoles in mind, unfortunately.
