    I think its acceptable , I like the concept of HDR too , makes it look realistic , runs smooth.

    The people who are disappointed with DoD:S will be disappointed with Lost Coast because "its just one level". The new DoD isn't disappointing, but theres some bugs that need fixin

    lol I remember how DOD:S was sitting in the "Coming Soon" list for over a year. Who knows how long the Lost Coast will be there for.

    Valve = Slow.

    how to add HDR to Call of Duty.

    Use your Video out to connect your pc to a really cheap and nasty telly,

    Set everything up in game so it looks ok, then crank up the Contrast on the telly to nearly full whack so that it causes a really bad BLOOMING effect and there you have HDR without the severe performance hit.

    Magic ;)

    HDR on Far Cry was a shoddy patch as was the 64-bit support.

    It is nothing like coding a game from the ground up to be 64bit or to support HDR.

    Im still reserved on how good HDR actually is. Ive got a good enough system to not worry about the performance hit, but sometimes i think it looks terrible. May just stick to AA.

    Im waiting to see lost coast before I slag off HDR

    Personally, I don't like HDR or bloom effects because they seem to take away from the sharpness and detail of the graphics. I just turn them off. Overhyped technology IMHO.

    Very true, I think that it looks nice ... but not worth the hype.

    i wouldnt go as far to say it looks nice, i think it looks abnormal i dont think ill ever enable it on future cards when playing games (my 9700pro wont be able to cut the mustard).

    I personally only have bloom enabled. My frames still blow. Hopefully the new nVidia update helps with that.
