ANything about DX10?
Who cares about that, that rain looks awesome.
Yeah I agree they have done a great job. T
o take the source engine and make it DX10 will be a complete waste of time. Might as well start over again and make a multi threaded, DX10, ram hugging and Hybrid HD loving engine from scratch.
No dates for when this update will hit Steam then? Just sometime before the beginning of next year?
I've got to say, that rain looks fantastic (from what I can make out). Although it's bloody typical - I bought a dual core laptop a couple of weeks ago, and have only just started playing Episode 1. I'm wondering if I should put off playing until this update is released as I've had to knock down the GFX settings slightly in order to get a smooth framerate (whereas with HL2 I could run everything on max).
can we download that technological demo somewhere ??
Alan Wake on four cores, THAT was awesome. This is cool too, though.
time to upgrade to a dual-core... and a new GFX card... my god that rain is really nice.... (ill just buy a new proc. and gfxcard just for watching the rain)
I'm making this assumption based on the last couple of times we've been to Valve - the demo we've got is not for public consumption. It's an unreleased build of the Source engine that we're not allowed to distribute. You should see it become a reality soon enough though.
what rain? did not see any rain faling on the fussy videos, they are damn short too.. Any downloadable extende hd divx version?
Yeah and bit released it on youtube for millions to watch....
No DX10 news. Thats a real shame. I really wanted to know what the nextgen cards where doing. And Valve opinion on that topic. Get your lazy butts off the chair and go visit valve again
One the of the best articles I have ever read on bit-tech, fascinating use of technology and the rain looks unbelievable. I can only imagine what HL3 will look like.
Great work guys!
[QUOTE='[USRF]Yeah and bit released it on youtube for millions to watch.... [/QUOTE]We didn't release the build, we released a video of the build running. That's perfectly fine and we've done it with Lost Coast, and with the Cinematics effects.
Great article, so's the QX6700 article too btw.
One big question though, how long until K8L? "Next year" - Q2-3?
It would be really nice if you would release some high-res stuff.
The YouTube videos are just fuzzy, everything looks "better" when it is all fuzzy because your imagination fills in what your eyes can't see.
Ah, I feel at home here. Other people excited about computer
Yeah, the issue is Wil's upload in the hotel he's in sucks. We've got plenty of bandwidth to host that sort of thing, maybe we'll add some later when Wil gets back here.
Fantastic! And hats off to Valve for getting the Source engine to go Dual Core. Will switching to Dual Core harm the Single Core users?
I'd hazard a guess that Valve will say that it'll "provide benefits for dual-core/quad-core users" rather than "single core users are going to suffer".
