This is amazing stuff and is very close to being given to some developers.

To give you an idea in 1 cubic meter of a dirt there is more converted polygons than in ANY game that doesn't use procedural generation


Wait til game devs get hold of this :)

As title says NEED a BF3 alpha key.
In exchange i have steam codes for the following games of which whoever gets me a code can have whichever game they want:

Just Cause 2
Shogun 2
Dirt 3 (Will need to wait til monday for this as vouchers are at my work)

« on: 03:32 AM - 06/18/11 »
Anyone gonna get this?

The SP was scary before so quite looking forward to this,  just hope it has a good MP side too.

General Discussion / Duke Nukem....what do you guys think
« on: 04:01 AM - 06/11/11 »
I'm hearing bad things about it but wanted some feedback from you guys.
Shall I get it?  Whats MP like?

General Discussion / Jehlybeans PC Spec
« on: 11:46 AM - 06/04/11 »
Jehly here you go mate as discussed.

Right light video editting and gaming and future proofing for BF3 here you come :D

Iim from the UK so have specc'd everything from newegg as i'm not familiar with other outlets over the pond :)

Shop around and you'll find better pricing by miles hence my slight over spend :)

Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz                                                                                         $314.99
GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD5-B3 LGA 1155                                                                                               $239.99
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R         $89.99
OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-60G 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)                $134.99
SAPPHIRE 100312-2SR Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 Eyefinity                   $232.99
SAPPHIRE 100312-2SR Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 Eyefinity                   $232.99
COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1 Black Steel/ Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case                $189.99
CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-1000HX 1000W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready         $219.99
CORSAIR CWCH60 Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler                                       $72.99

Total $1728.91

So for this you get an i7 2600k which will go to 4.5Ghz+

8GB of 1600Mhz memory

a SSD which is SATA III that does 525MB Read and 475MB Write, it uses a sandforce controller so read and write will be lower with video editting but still plenty fast enough.

2 x 6950's these are 2GB versions so if you go for some high res monitors or eyefinity you will be set :)
They also flash to 6970's and unlock everything including shaders so you in theory have a $750 6990 for $465.....enough said :)

HAF X is one of the best air cooling cases around,  if you dont like it then i can suggest others but based on air cooling its currently one of the best out there.

1000HX corsair PSU,  solid, stable, worth the premium??? YES i own one...

Corsair H60,  this will help keep your cpu temps down with the advantages of watercooling but without the hassle of it. 

So let me know what you think or if you have any questions or dont like a particular product.

You will need to add storage drives and optical drives but let me know what type of video editting and/or capturing your doing as they may be better options for you.

General Discussion / UK Guys on Virgin Cable had problems?
« on: 03:08 AM - 06/04/11 »
Obviously there sorted now but has anyone else had problems with Virgin cable and the DNS not resolving to a lot of sites?

Aparently no one could log into WOW either :D

General Discussion / UK/EU Social Games
« on: 08:55 AM - 05/28/11 »
So who's up for some games, what games and what nights?

I play virtually every week night and start between 8:00-8:30 for anywhere between 1 hour to 4 hours depending on the misses demands.

Weekends it depends how long she is in the shower,  if she washes her hair i have 2 hours easy,  if she moisturises then i get another half hour lol.

So who's up for it and whats the bets nights for you and what games would you play?

Once we have this basic info i'll try and make a flexible schedule :)

Main goal is to have a bit of fun, and drunks are welcome.

General Discussion / Who's on twitter?
« on: 05:03 AM - 05/26/11 »
Thought twitter would be a good way to get some games together as everyone seems to have it and everyone seems to have a mobile with twitter capabilities.

I need more follows so add me:  http://twitter.com/ross_talbot

And i'll add you in return and get some games going.
Maybe Xim should also be doing something on twitter,  would be good to hear about new ST's/firmware and developments on the move.

I'm new to twitter and dont have anyone to tell when im getting on a bus or anything so follow me lol.

Started a #Xim3 too :)

General Discussion / Xbox to get mega mesh Tesselations
« on: 05:48 AM - 05/16/11 »

Well the tech may be old by todays standards but this will surely breath new life into the graphics at least.
It wont keep up with the wii HD obviously but if Nintendo continue down the family demographic then the wii won't be for me.

Makes me wonder though why microsoft havent done this earlier.  It seems like they are just reacting to the wii.

Xbox / Anyone for some Portal 2 CO-OP UK
« on: 07:47 AM - 04/30/11 »
Anyone here fancy doing the co-op on portal 2?
I've done everything on SP and want to 100% it.

Anyone got it and can give us a quick review on it?

General Discussion / New Razer Hydra
« on: 07:48 PM - 04/22/11 »
Just in case you portal guys havent seen it yet here is the razer Hydra.
Basically its wii remotes but uber accurate,  instead it uses an electromagnetic field which is accurate to 1mm and 1 degree of movement.  Where as the wii controllers needed to feel force to know which direction they were being pushed this doesnt.  It knows where it is within a 10ft sphere around the field emitter.

Im not into portal but i saw Razer demonstrate it the other week and it looked very cool.  I dont think i would use it for FPS but for a game like portal it makes sense.


Ok so could you plug another xbox wired controller into the xim and remap it?
I was just wondering for games like Tiger woods and stuff to eliminate hitting hooks or slices by just binding the stick to the other controllers stick but using left and right on the keyboard for example.
