I can hardly say how thrilled I am with these settings of Rabu's. Thanks a TON for sharing!
I had recently replaced my aging GS7900 card with a GT260/896MB card and thought I'd have all the FPS I would ever need. However, I found almost no improvement when using the same settings I've been using all along. I had just about decided I'd have to wait to really enjoy OFF when I was able to replace my 4-year old computer with something that had more CPU. However, with the settings described in Homeboy's message, I have noticed at least a 20% improvement in FPS performance - even when over airfields, etc. The clarity of the images is also better than I've ever experienced. These settings (as different as many of them are from what has been CFS3 "standard" for so long) have breathed new life into my system and sparked renewed interest for me in OFF.
I can also say that I have made the same settings changes to my other CFS3 installs (MAW, ETOE) and have experienced even better performance results than what I've seen for OFF (I know OFF is much more system-taxing to begin with).
So again, cheers to Rabu, Homeboy and the others here for really digging into these complicated details and working through them for all our benefit!
Best regards to all,
