Why was the smoke from tanks and rockets increased and thickened?

Can't see shit captain


It's all part of the big illusion that we perpetuate on ourselves and in turn is perpetuated upon us. When we believe, we engage the illusion. When we stop believing we shatter the illusion and shatter ourselves in the process. Because we are, part of it.

It wasn't. You must have a mod on your client.

I'm not the only one who has this, I thought I was until two others mentioned it on teamspeak

This was an issue in the past.

See topic here:

Is it the same issue again?

No, the smoke is just white, but a lot thicker than in the past.

It's definitely 4.0, since I'm not the only one who has this issue.

Try running the same graphics settings on both and you will probably find they are the same. Based on the lol-blurry APC in the left hand image it looks as if that was taken with absolute minimum graphics settings, which do reduce the number of particles per emitter as I recall.

i'm tempted to ask di3hardnl to make a skin that removes explosions again - total advantage style
the last few times i've played ren the shit was so bright that i shied away from a lot of tank battles
if there wasn't a magical red hit box on the enemy vehicles i wouldn't know what on earth i was shooting at a lot of the time

The smoke is thicker and whiter than pre-4.0 on minimum settings, but pre-4.0 if you set the details to low the smoke would be "less" then details set to high.

I've been playing with increased settings ever since I got my new computer last year in January, and I really hadn't noticed any difference, the smoke seemed just as thick to me. But after I got 4.0 I really can't see shit anymore in tank fights.

Particle detail is controlled separately from texture detail; however, a low texture detail would make the emitters harder to see, due to the lack of detail in general. In addition, if you have particle detail set to a lower level it will reduce how many are drawn on screen.

Increase both to max and disable shaders (in both 4.0 and non 4.0) and then see how it compares.

Can someone please tell me this is being fixed in the next BETA release?

If there's more than 2 lights/meds/mammies/gunners/etc shooting at you you really can't see ANYTHING at all, it's really unplayable.

http://oi49.tinypic.com/9gas2f.jpg

I have shaders disabled in every way possible btw, in-game, CCC and in registry

I am also affected by this. Turning shaders all the way down has no effect, and game.exe won't let me remove shaders.dll

is this fixed in RC1?

Literally every single player I play with on teamspeak complain about they can't see a thing all the time.

Despite what is said about turning off shaders, that does NOT fix it

I too lately have found that tank battles are impossible because you can't bloody see anything. I'll start taking some SS of the whiteness and my video settings for comparison.

I am running an AMD Radeon 8650.

I'm running a ATI Radeon 6550 series and I don't experience this issue. As I said, its most likely due to an issue with shaders.

It must be, I have an ATI 2400XT (garbage card) and it doesn't bother me at all.
