Default Old School is Best School Season 3 Round 3 Discussion

3DM01 would not be a better choice than 3DM03?
I'm asking this because 3DM03 does not run on older Matrox cards like G450 (DX6.0) and it would basically limit the competition to Parhelia/Millenium only.

I will leave this decision to Christian Ney. I cannot access the page myself btw and when I go from eocsprts site I get no content...Problem is known for a while but seems there is no solution so far

We will limit cards to DX8 capable or lower DX version, so we rule out all cards that are DX9 capable or higher, seems to be best solution to keep it cheap

What limited to DX8 I have already got a M9140 for this and at the last second its not going to be allowed.
On this competition page it says in Bold any Matrox GPU.
OC eSports

I give up.
I might as well not compete at all.

You can still discuss this with Christian Ney and Massman, I did propose dx9 and lower which wwould cover more cards. The main problem remains how we can keep cost low, for me this is a smaller problem because I do not have to buy 500 euro card^^

Ok thanks Michael.
I sent Christian a message proposing that the C series be banned they are the expensive ones that no one will buy and have a Radeon GPU and GDDR5 memory.
I payed $80AU for my M9140 which isnt too much.

Default Re: Old School is Best School Season 3 Round 3 Discussion

this is like you cant use any other card than a geforce 7 series in the last round for RB, when it clearly does not say you cant use any other card, and using the "can be coupled with a geforce 7 series card" as the answer for an excuse for it is a poor excuse, it does not say in the limitation that no other card can not be used, for icestorm it clearly stated a geforce 7 series card to be used, therefore a submission for the RBENCH with another card of any kind is legitimite and a legal submission and SHOULD be allowed

this changing cards for the matrox is the same princple same as some intel cpu costs, if you cant buy the hardware then dont go on a whinge complaining about it and dont go in the competitions..its that simple ....the section stated any matrox card for this section, what about the people that have already spent the money and bought the card , already spent hours testing, modding, whatever with it...what do they do with it now ???, sell it ??? where, the stall down the street ? or smash it with a bloody hammer
