you realize that several of Arma2's screenies look like pre-rendered graphics ?
I'm not impressed to say the least
show some extensive environmental screenies of both engines then we can start to talk
you're offtopic !
Well, I decided to test some weeks ago the xorg-video-ati driver and I was so pleased with the 2D performance that I don't mind losing some 3D functionallity if my desktop applications will work more smoothly, so I didn't switch back to fglrx.
Games? Street Fighter IV doesn't work in wine yet, so I don't mind rebooting to Windows when I want to play.
PD: what's this outbreak of trolling and off-topic? Generally these forums are peaceful and a good place to read some good discussions (yeah, I'm a lurker).
Since it's a laptop there's no possibility to upgrade without buying a new one. And I think I'll stick to Lenny until I read some breaking news on KMS power management on Phoronix's site.
Secondly; id Tech 5 doesn't require such ridiculous amount of processing power to achieve that, with more graphical effects.
PS: Arma2's AI sucks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvfM_f9zjUI
id Tech 5 can handle 32GB of texture because it streams it from the HDD.
So uhm... id Tech 5 can handle Arma2, but Arma2's engine can't handle Rage.
id Tech 5 is cross platform, so it can run on every platform: Ps3, Xbox360, Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. Arma2's engine only runs on Windows if you pray to God it doesn't crash from all of its show stopping bugs. What is your problem?IDtech5 is an game engine for xbox360 and playstation3 nothing more !
And now let's look at your last post. What I am seeing is nothing but higher detailed artwork. Depth of field is the only cool effect I can see and id Tech 5 has it too. Now what else does this engine bring to the table? I can't see anything fancy.
This all leads me to the conclusion that you know nothing about 3D graphics. Hands down.

enough's enough, stop the trolling, move the engine discussions to another thread.
Well do you see Arma2 running on Linux? You never get something right - really. Id Tech 5 will be definitely the best multiplatform engine that will most likely get a Linux port, can you say this for your example too? wine with d3d emulation might be possible but thats like slowing down the speed from f1 racer to a truck.
