Hi
Just wondered if there's any rules for what videosetting we can have when playing tournaments.
Just d/l this weeks map and noticed at once, that when set on LOW groundobjects you got a big advantage against a player set on HIGH.
I normaly play on high or ultra, so I had to ask.

Dan, in my opinion it should be set as high as the hunters PC will run smoothly, of course that is just my opinion.
I always run on ultra or high.
Cheers,
Dave

When Magnum & I wrote the rules, we decided not to dictate "Ground Objects" setting for this reason. At the time and probably to date we have some hunting on older computers. Our hunt maps are getting more detailed and making everyone hunt on "High" or above could cause problems for some. With that said, You can hunt on any setting.

DanthemanBoone has been perfecting his trade lately, so that you can hunt on "High" or above with an older PC on his maps. If you truly want to get the most of your hunting experience on these maps, hunt on "High" or above, and you will see wasteland turn into a beautiful garden! Smile

Hagadoos map makers have been working hard to develop a technique of making ground cover  that will not dissapear when ground objects are turned down.

This has meant using unlinked objects in place of  dynamics when placing grass, bushes and crops but this has presented some difficulty
in as much as those with lower end computors will have lower frame speeds but without the option of being able to recover by lowering the ground object setting.

Those of us making maps are now very aware of tuning our maps for the best frame speeds we can and all maps that I test for uploading need to acheive a minimum frame rate before uploading to site.
Most of these maps will run well on high settings on lower end computors.

This weeks map is an OLD STYLE map which uses dynamics in the old way.

Generally there is a new consensus on site that we all hunt with the highest settings we can manage. The screen shot and dht tell where your ground settings were when you shot the animal so we pretty much know what your etical value settings are as well.

Run the map to suit you computer. There are many tricks to get improved frame rates so If you want some help to tune your computer for better frame rates at higher settings, post or come on Team speak .

Have fun competing, dont take unfair advantage and show us what you are made of ( I have already heard that you are Dangerous) so I look forward to having someone else beat me.

Cheers
