Same here. BTW love absolutely Half-Life 2 - Episode's 1 & 2 outdoors scene. Just gorgeous, even now.

Anyway I'm enjoying Oblivion right now, and yeah those texture packs - Qarl's Texture Pack 3, and Natural Environment are impressive - even if my system stutters as it renders the distant scenes (will have to fix that).
Anyway the game looks really really good

Just finished Assassin's Creed and have started on Assassin's Creed II. ACII unfortunately is a very different from AC. It looks a bit... fake.

I think it's mostly different because Ezio isn't as condescending and elitist as Altair. Once ACII gets going and you get in to the thick of it all it's a great game. AC: Brotherhood is much better though that continues on afterwards.

Unique landscapes and Illumination Within are some really good ones too.

IW makes lights shine through Windows at nights. Just a little touch that makes things look much better IMHO. And UL just adds a variety of distant textures.

As far as the stuttering, you'll never get rid of it completely.
You'll have it even with a complete Vanilla version of the game as well.
But as I mentioned before, the Anti-Stutter Plug in and fast Exit Plug ns do help a good deal, although some stutter will still be present.
The only downside is you may want to edit the Anti-Stutter ini a bit for your needed.

Personally, I found setting the Min Frames to 30 and Max Frames to 60 was all that was needed. (Deafault is Min=15 Max=30 I think)

Something else I found helps with Oblivion too is putting it on a SSD. If it isn't already, you may want to try moving it and create a junction. Its one of those games that can get a bit of benefit from it, other than just initial loading times.


@Boogie
I just recently finished Alice. It is a good Game, especially if you like platformers.
I enjoyed it, but still need to go through it again to get all of the secrets to unlock the Disturbing Memories.
The story is OK, and you can get a bit more of it by collecting memories .. which works sort of like Bioshocks Tape Recorders.

The only downside is that it gets a bit repetative. However, the enviroments are really nice, gameplay is smooth, and when it does start getting a bit repetative ... you tend to want to move on just to see whats next. At least it was the case for me.
You can expect Approx 15hrs for your first playthrough, which isnt to bad for a modern adventure game.

The only other thing about Alice I think would be worth mentioning is that ..
Although the Keyboard and Mose works with it, I found the game a bit easier and much more enjoyable using the Xbox360 controller. It just seems to be really designed for it, and plays better with it.
Some may disagree, but thats my thoughts anyway.

Well that may true but for now I'll just stick to what I already have cause if I start adding a lot of stuff I'll never finish the game cause I'll be too busy standing around marveling the scenery

Yeah for a moment I thought I was back in New Vegas with the way the game stutters

Personally, I found setting the Min Frames to 30 and Max Frames to 60 was all that was needed. (Deafault is Min=15 Max=30 I think)

I'll try some other tweaks to see if I can minimize the stuttering

Well I have all my games on a seperate spinner dedicated to games and have had very few performance issues other the the games that are known to have stuttering problems - FO3, FONV, Oblivion - hmmm..... all bethesda games

Anyway though I have enough space on my 120gig OS SSD drive to move the game over, I think I'll stick with my WD caviar Black drive untill I can get at least a 250gig SSD that I can dedicate to games.
Thanks for the tips/help though. Much appreciated

What Games Are You Playing?-dungeon-siege-screen-0014.jpg

- currently playing my way through Legends Of Utrae..


this amazing game is actually a mod for the Dungeon Siege/Legends Of Aranna game
that Steam are currently selling in a package deal with Dungeon Siege 3..

The Legends Of Utrae mod, available for download free - utilizes the entire DS/LOA multiplayer map - and it's MASSIVE..!!
- it has it's own unique monsters and a storyline that makes you just want to keep going..
- it plays for hundreds of hours, and is always challenging and entertaining..

I'd give it 10/10, but then I'm biased - I don't mind admitting this little game is nothing short of a masterpiece..

- and yes, you can play it at 1600x900 widescreen..!!

Just grab the demo off of Steam if you want a taster of it.
