that reminds me about Crysis, but it would have to be on the lowest resolution and settings and even lower again.


Well, it is Crysis, but its actually on the highest settings possible. It was practically a slideshow while I was snapping screenshots. I think the JEPEG compression faded it a little though.


wohoo, i was right!
on my current system i can only run Crysis on all high and highest resolution, and then i get only 25fps. that is the main reason i ordered new parts.

did you play with über lag or do you have a decent system? i REALLY need to read more before i write, i am going to stop writing in the middle of the night to :)

that was enough offtopic for me.

i really want to get a really high speed camera and get a still of my hybrid with a golfball and a white fireball and use it on my desktop! that would be interesting!

Image is of Simo Hayha. I'd definitely suggest reading up on him if you haven't heard of him.

It was between him an Audie Murphy, but I liked Simo's story more.
