my game runs fine, but i was looking at the Splintercell ini and under the [D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice] section, the line following that it says Translucency=True. i was j/w wondering what that is. and also what is VolumetricLighting=False??? thanks a lot and i hope this was the right forums to ask this on

Translucency has something to do with lights and windows I believe. IE, the windows are trancelucent, and the lights are in bulbs. Some ppl can set that to false and get rid of the lights though walls senerio. As for volumetric lighting, that setting can only be used by high end video cards such as the GF4 TI, GFFX, and ATI 9x00. It makes the game look GOOD.

My system:

AMD XP 2400+ @ 2.13 Ghz
1 gig of Corsair DDR PC2700 RAM @333Mhz
Radeon 9800 Pro video w/TV out core @434, mem @720
Windows XP SP 1
Microsoft Directx 9.0a
Antec TruePower TrueBlue True480 PSU
16x Antec DVD drive
24x10x40 Plexwriter CD-RW
1 Westerndigital 40 gig harddrive, master
1 Westerndigital 100 gig hdd, slave
XFX KT400 ALH Via mainboard, 4-in-1 4.48
All in my modded "Spiderman" case!

I think it's just for the Nvidia cards.
