Want to "get back" into OFP. I remember playing the demo when it came out, even online , and now I'm sitting here with my recently acquired GOTY edition, wondering how I could ignore OFP for six years, SIX YEARS.
Actually it isn't that recent when I bought the GOTY edition, but when I first tried it half a year ago my PC gave me mad stuttering so I shelved it... Now, MAGIC, no more stuttering.
On to my questions (I *tried* to use the search function of this board but it's a pain in the ... and couldn't answer most of my question).
Concerning the campaign:
I want to play the CWC campaign, what version you recommend should I play it through? The original OFP version, or via the Resistance Exe and start it from there?
What does Resistance change? I'm asking because I want to play the CWC campaign the way it was meant to be played originally, gameplay wise. If the updated version only changes graphics and fixes bugs I'm fine with that. (Does Resistance ver. 1.96 fix bugs which OFP v1.46 doesnt?)
And btw, in the Resistance Launcher app, where you can define the product you want to start, there don't seem to be any differences whether I choose "GOTY" or "Original Version"... Huh?
And the technical stuff:
Is sound hardware acceleration recommended with OFP? ( it sounds a bit different, can't yet decide if better though )
Is it normal that with EAX enabled every few shots the sound of the gun seems to change? (i'm standing still)
Only have AC97 sound on-board, which should support EAX 2, which sounds interesting enough for me to try...
I read about some problems with nights in OFP being totally black, and in fact, they are totally black though I can see the stars in the sky. Should I see more than total blackness without NV goggles? Looks fairly realistic to me.
Forgot half of my questions... One last - There's quite some impact on my fps when I activate object shadows (looking at a town, drop from 50 to 40 for instance). I don't have a state-of-the-art PC but it should be generations above the ones from the OFP days, so I'm a bit stumped! That for you too?
Thanks for your time.
