I haven't noticed one.

Thanks for the info. Normally when you increase or modify things related to shading and stuff (I'm a complete noob at this btw), you get some performance decrease, but I guess that with what you changed (they seem to be minor things), it won't happen at all.

I lost MABYE a whopping 2-3 frames, and that's a guesstimate. I don't notice any loss in performance.

Nice!
I just reverted to using '-dxlevel 70'.
I guess I'm not alone.

I've played with VC before, but I don't think I've ever killed him.

I thought DX 7 was removed form the OB engine, looks like it wasnt.
DX7 you can see things better, certain effects do not work, laser trip mines in HL2 can be seen much easier when planted in water than DX8 or 9
Some go as far as calling it unfair and is banned from some leagues but policing it is hard.

Sp1nn3y, what's your graphics card? because I got much more than 8 FPS on my old Radeon 9550.

I should have underlined old, or probably I didn't explain myself correctly (most likely the latter). I had a Radeon 9550, now I have a Radeon X1600 Pro (old too, but way better than the previous one). I'm gathering money to buy a rig that will blow my power supply. I'm talking about a GeForce 295 and stuff like that, but guess that when I have the dough needed for it, it will be outdated... hehe
