    Hello ALL !
    I'm from poland, so my english is'nt good.
    I buy Geforce 6600 from Palit, 4.0 ns etc.
    M/b - ASrock k7s8x
    256DDRRam 333
    AthlonXP2400+

    When i'm playing riddick, on ps2, i have 30fps.
    but when i change ps2.0 to the ps2.0++, then i have 5fps :(
    Why ?
    On my GraphicCard, i have PixelShaders 3.0, so why to small fps ?

    This is normal... It is called soft shadows, and very gpu intensive. Only the 7800GTX can play it with decent fps.

    It will work, but u will get fps no higher than 25fps which is unplayable...

    Even a 6800GT has a tough time with ps2.0++ .... with soft shadows enabled the game looks awesome ..... but it'll be barely playable ..... the game is quite good with ps2.0 too .. so pump up the res. and play it with ps2.0 .... u wouldn't even notice the difference .....

    its like
    SM2.0++ = SM2.0 + Soft shadows
    its not
    SM2.0++ = Sm3.0

    I dont know if this is related. It seems the 7772 nvidia drivers dont work with Riddick. It gives an error "This application requires graphics driver support for OpenGL 1.3 or higher". and then gives a runtime error in SbzEngine.exe.

    You need to patch the game or simply grab RivaTuner and Force OpenGL towards 1.5

    2.0++ is barely playable in anything below series 6, even barely playable on a 7800. 6800's in SLI would make it playable also though.

    You can look up some results here:

    macatak, it's easier to catch you here rather than on GameArena. What patch do we use? I was waiting for an "international" type patch before bothering to download.

    The "US" patch is the one, the European one didn't work on my game,which i thought was the one i should use, and you get 5 new timedemos with the patch as well :)
