I think sweeny said a while back the engine is designed just to render a shadar effect as fast as possible based on the shadar version of the graphics card or something.
So if you have a ps2.0 card then the effect will still look the same, but it will just take multiple passes to render so it will be slower.

Thanks for the info guys, most of it sounded like technical jargon to me, but thats ok. It just sounds like I won't be getting this one.

Don't worry everyone! NVIDIA and/or ATI will probably make a new graphics card and it will probably run this game nicely.

That's funny, because I'm returning to nVidia because ATI has me more than slightly disappointed.

Yeah, it feels weird... I actually stuck with nvidia even though ATI runs uengine better, due to prioritization for api, but I figure, there are so many other games that use gl, that, if I did wanna try Doom3, or the next Quake that comes out

I've bought cards for this franchise before, yet had no hesitation with that decision.

Seems that ati/nvidia users are hopping currently because either of them disappoints them

Yeah, you need to wonder how you're going to run a game that's heavily based on DirectX on nVidia cards, as they're better suited for OpenGL last I looked.

The difference would be a half dozen frames anyway - imho go for the better priced option that's cooler.

The min will be dx9, not sm3. There isn't a card that can't do dx9 and would be able to run it above a slideshow anyway. If someone has a rad9600 or a gf5200 then at least they'll get the game up and running and want to upgrade.

btw:
Unreal Tournament = UT1
Unreal Tournament 2003 = UT2
Unreal Tournament 2004 = UT2 Expansion Pack
Unreal Tournament: Envy = UT3

If you think UT2004 a sequel then you probably think GTA: Vice City is GTA4, Doom3: Resurrection of Evil is Doom4, and Painkiller: Battle out of Hell is Painkiller 2.

You know you miss nVidia, don't you? I have yet to try an ATI card.
