subject as above, on my GF4 Ti4200 128mb. the game runs & looks great at
1280x1024, almost photorealistic textures but the mirrors don't reflect!
this bugs me. TIA

Your card doesn't support Pixel Shader 1.4 which is used to render the
mirror reflections. It's stated pretty clear in the game's readme file.

Whoa, quite strange that I've seen mirror-reflections in many
games before MP2 and I've only had cards supporting DX7/8.

Is this the way novadays, concentrate to DX9-programming
only and soon even the simpliest effects do require some
f*cking superior DX9-hardware? Right, no mercy.
Must evolve.

Mmm, not really

Aslong as the GF 4 ti series are yet pretty found on the users
computers DX8 will not leave us. But.. DX9 has ..more eye-candy as DX8
and i'm sure that soon every DX8 card owner will feel that games are
"not as nice" as on the neigbhours computer.

And then it's time to find a nice DX9 card.

Unless ofcourse you don't play the latest games.....
