Clear Sky: DX-10 Demonstration Video (UPDATED AGAIN)
- A News for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.
An amazing new video has been released for STALKER: Clear Sky. It demonstrates alot of new effects that will be included in STALKER: Clear Sky.
Seriously, it looks amazing to me. This is one video that all fans of STALKER need to watch.
Volumetric fire, soft water, god rays, rain effects, dynamic wet surfaces, volumetric smoke, and more effects are demonstrated. In addition to that, we are also shown how the weapons will handle now, even though one is shown, namely the Sig-550. I'd say that judging by this video, the weapons have been drastically improved and feel more life-like.
By the time this video ended, I had a smile on my face that made me doubt my sanity.
Enjoy the video.

A shaky-cam video has just been released on Youtube showing an even longer segment of this level and demonstrating effects. This particular video is from the Portal 2008 Game Devs conference. The videos are essentially the same except this one is longer and shows alot more of the same. Oleg Yavosrkiy, GSC's PR manager in the video, says nothing new, just explains more on the story of Clear Sky. We already know all of what he says. Still, this video's also pretty cool.
GSC have also just posted new screens for Clear Sky on 24/04/08
These show alot of new stuff such as environments, characters, etc.
Like this news item? Think alot of effort was put into it? Then please don't forget to thumb!!

Can you play clear sky with dx9 ?
The system specs for Clear Sky were promised to be exactly like STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl's, except with better Vista support and compatibility, and an additional DX10 mode.
Now that it's been released, will it be the same? I don't have Vista and have a, sadly, pretty limited system (NVidia GeForce 7600 GS, 2 meg of RAM, Athlon 64, 2.7 GHz processor, I'm doubling my RAM once I have twenty more dollars), would I be able to run Clear Sky? I can run the original just fine and it'll be even better with the extra RAM, but all of those effects scare the shit out of me: if I don't get more than 7 FPS in the Arena in the Duty sector... What's volumetric smoke going to do to my computer?!
Can't wait, I'm going to be selling my 8800 GTS 320mb to purchase a 9800 GTX and more ram+vista. Thus allowing me to run dx10. ;D
PS: The 320mb is good, but it's vastly inferior to any of the other 8800's.
