Comments

While disabling shadows and reducing water quality down to remove the broken reflections are a shame, since water doesn't play a part in every level, it isn't as big a deal as it could be. If you're happy with the way the game looks without them, you'll be happy with what 3D brings to Shogun 2.


Part II: Required Game Setting Reductions & Adjustments

  • Turned off shadows entirely.
  • QA penalty: 30%
  • Reduced or turned off reflections (e.g. land, water)
  • QA penalty: 10%
    Total penalties: 2


    Part III: Top Level Anomalies

    Total penalties: 0


    Part IV: Secondary Anomalies

  • Elements of the Heads Up Display (HUD) have errors, are innacurate, or are flawed in some way when stereoscopic 3D mode is activated. Examples could include markers or map points that are out of sync in 3D mode, partial HUD element distortions, or any interface error that appears in stereoscopic 3D mode that isn't there in traditional 2D. This is NOT that same as an interface or HUD that completely splits when 3D settings are adjusted.
  • QA penalty: 10% Notice how the compass in the HUD is split unnaturally.
  • Volumentric lights rendered at the wrong depth (e.g. at screen depth). Examples include ambient light or spotlights shining on the ground, wall, or nearby objects.
  • QA penalty: 5% Light from torches render at screen depth. Espescially obvious in night missions.
    Total penalties: 2
