7970 Oblivion Ed. Extreme settings
2 Attachment(s)
Just having some fun with Oblivion. Never got around to actually finishing it. Damn undersea dome/house. I thought I was playing the Sims I guess. At least I never bought horse armor. :bleh:

I wanted to test how the graphics game was coming along since 2006. I hadn't played since I had my X1950Pro CF setup in another build which never got above 30fps at those gate things. So I reinstalled it to play it before I get Skyrim.

With my newer GPU (7970) I went balls to the wall. The only mods I have installed thus far is Qarl's texture pack and an updated sound package.

I find it funny that in some spots, even without the mods I can get as little as 29fps if I carefully aim in the right direction of nearly empty space. That shows you how really unoptimized some games can really be.

However, with the settings below I can get ungodly framerates :shok: and Oblivion never looked better. Every slider in game was maxed as well. Truth be told I never though with such extreme settings with the texture pack that I would get that good a framerate. I thought I was gonna teach this card who was boss. Apparrently...it is.:haha:

24xEQ Edge detect with MLAA and HDR!? Yes please! I really need a new 30" monitor though.

Too this day, One of my Fav games ever.

Well that's the kind of unoptimized programming you get for a console port

Yeah, seems like since about 2006 there has been a lot of that. Here is to the future and hopefully it will be full of CD Projekt Reds and less of EA/DICE.

I really do like where AMD went with the new game settings page. :thumb:

Yes Chromey, mine too. But it is it's modability that mad it what it is imho. Without that it would have been much less.

Heh, I spoke too soon! I was able to drag it down to 6FPS. Thankfully my AA settings are seriously overkill.

Oh! And apparently I did buy horse armor :blarg:. It came with Knights of the Nine. Yes, I just found that out. I bought Kotn and SI but never installed them until today. But I didn't mean too. THAT's what counts! :biggrin:

That's just horse shit! (Pun intended) sadly that's what happens when it's consoles in mind, compare to PC programming.

I did everything I could to bring it to it's knees. I went the extra mile. So it shouldn't surprise anyone that with everything and the kitchen sink on top of the GPU that I was able to get 6fps. Yay me! :clap:

But yup, It is a miserable peice of code isn''t it?
