Thing is you came here, claiming to have done something that nobody has ever achieved, that the developers say doesn't work, having modified nothing, it "just works".
You looked at the first level, saw some shadows: OMGZ%$# I'm so awesome I have fixed this issue, let's share it with the world! 🤣
Do you see what I mean?
Ok wow. When did I ever exhibit such an attitude? I have been nothing but polite and trying to be as helpful as possible, but it turns out you don't see it that way. It's too bad, because I just came in here to post my findings so that people that want to play this game at some point can have an alternative.
But, right from the start you were sarcastic and totally downplayed me, despite the fact that I was just trying to help and have "delivered" with two videos and spent some hours on this. Even if you look at my first post you'll see that I wasn't too quick to say that it is working as it should. I even explicitly said that it probably exhibits the same glitches as the FX cards, but I don't know how to exploit those glitches.
I haven't fixed anything. I've said it a million times by now, but the game works like this on my setup after installation of the latest patch. I haven't forced anything, haven't touched any .ini or .cfg files. From the start of this thread, people have been wondering whether Shadow Buffers are worth it or whether they should just play the game on a modern PC with much higher framerates/resolutions/AA. I was under the impression that Shadow Buffers will only work on GF3/4, I had no knowledge that Shadow Buffers actually work on modern systems and only produce the same glitches that the FX cards do. I thought they wouldn't work at all on newer cards, at least that's the impression I got from your posts. And excuse me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you ever explicitly stated that.
I know you've sunk way too much time in this and have been disappointed with the results, that's why you're probably acting like an elitist. I don't deserve this however. I have no intentions to "debunk" your work, in case that's how you feel. I truly love the work you put on so many projects and merely wish I had the time, space, money and courage to put out so much quality content. I honestly admire you, please don't alter my perception of you being a well-meaning guy.
I think I've made my point, I don't want to discuss this any further. I have no idea what you mean by bias. As long as it helps showcase glitches, how is it bias? Nonetheless, I don't wish to continue this and will not record any more videos, since it will only lead to further friction between me and you, apparently. I think I've made my point anyway.
PS: As for phrases like "challenge accepted", these were merely there to poke fun.
