With Car Cry, they included graphical features that 32-bit systems couldnt render. Or, wasnt offered to the 32-bit systems. I, like it, but I have a 64-bit system. Oh and btw...all this 64-bit Far Cry, and UT2004....isnt for P4's with EMT64. AMD64 only. The only complete way to execute 64-bit.

Yep. Intel only includes 80% of the memory register access that AMD64 requires, and I think they even cut a couple of instructions(cant find a better term) out of the EM64T instruction set. Pretty sad. But then again, the Netburst architecture cant hold a candle to the K8 Architecture.

Yea, I just booted onto my XP Pro partition. It's definately alot faster with UT2004 than on 64-bit. Drivers?

Maybe.

Yep. Thats exactly it. With the physics and sound performance improvements, I would think you would notice a slight improvement in 64-bit over 32-bit with drivers that were up to par with 32-bit drivers in 64-bit windows. But, you know...people have agenda's....and 64-bit performance aint one of them.

Actually Windows 64 bit is faster dan. Anyway UT2004 was never a stressful game to begin with its very user friendly. I mean as far as lagging goes I never got any type of graphics lag. Every system I'v played any of the unreal series on has ran it superb. The Unreal Engine is very good. Which is why its so famous. This leads me to believe UT2007 will look good and play good even on older systems.

Okay, nowhere in that post did i say ANYTHING about FPS, i was not talking about FPS, i was talking about TEXTURES AND GRAPHICS, not FPS. The textures looks a lot better.

The textures are completely unchanged in the 64 bit version.

Take a screenshot in 32 bit mode, and one in 64 bit mode. Exactly the same.

If they changed the textures, the download would have been much bigger. They only supplied a couple .ini files and an .exe file in the 64-bit patch. No more textures.

I never said Windows 64 wasn't faster, I just said that there was no performance gain running the 32 bit version then running the 64 bit version in UT2004. ( I ran both in windows 64, they both gave the exact same FPS in a variety of situations ).

I realize UT2004 is an incredible engine, they just didn't optimize the game for 64 bit, they simply made a 64 bit executable for linux so UT could run on linux, then just copied it over to windows for kicks and giggles. Do a google search.
