Hi, FB is optimized for OpenGl and it looks fantastic. But I tried DirectX yesterday and FPS almost doubled. What's wrong with that picture? I was getting 45fps with OpenGl, but 70fps with DirectX. It sure doesn't look as good as OpenGl though. I have everyting set to medium and normal settings.

Just want to know if it's same on other systems.
Thanks.

System: Athlon XP2000, 1Gig ram, GF4 Ti4200 128Mb, DX9.0.

DirectX doesn't support Vsync, that's most likely why the FSP is twice as high.

It also doesn't support Perfect. Big framrate difference.
