Back when we first got rearview mirrors, if you tried to use S3TC texture compression, there was a huge hit on frame-rate. I don't know if it is my new rig, or if this is something that was fixed in one of the patches, but I was just flying a Hawker, and for the first time in a long time, I turned on the mirror while using S3TC. I had to look up to make sure that I still had it mapped correctly, and yes, there was the mirror, with no real big difference in FR. Has anyone else noticed this, or is it just me?

I had a rather nasty fight with Hartman while flying a La7, but I made it back to tell you. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif I did have a 40fps hit in framerate, when looking up and turning it on. Of course, I was getting 110fps before turning on the mirror. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I'm running tri filtering, and S3TC filter at 1600 X 1200. Hope this helps.

Good hunting,

Thanks, Cajun.
I do think that it is better than it was, then. Without texture compression, it wasn't so bad, but with . . . well, it used to be unplayable. I don't use the mirrors that often. It is more of a novelty than anything else, but I do enjoy it once in a while.
