please use this topic to discuss a rendering system.

This needs some serious work
Installed to a copy of game in different folder OK.
Ran the game it launched first time but was unplayable. Screen very yellow FPS normal but tanks sluggish like lagging ping. Whole screen was flashing yellow white.
Shut game down tried to restart with only white screen and PC locked.
Rebooted whole machine.
Game tried to start in a window this time but white screen in window only and had to be stopped via task manager.
Deleted all new physics content and went to play 7.5 only to find it had nuked all my setting back to factory even though it was never installed on 7.5 original copy.
This is in no way ready to go.
System in case some one is monitoring this forum

PS: Everything was tested on HIGH settings and on both high end graphics from Nvidia and Ati (GTX480 and Radeon 6870)

Other than that, my ATI drivers cause occasional flickering and screen artifacts to display when the camera is close to a shadow casting surface.

I got flickering screen on all maps when i start moving and when i return to garage i have some garbled icons like some direct draw issues.
I have an i7 processor and ATI HD 5670 video card with the latest drivers installed!
Also the tanks feel sluggish now and a tier 2 feels now more like a tier 8 medium ffs...
Please fix the damn rendering before the next patch or move the new rendering introduction to a later time in case you are not able to.
In case you will keep the buggy rendering and it will work only for some video cards I guarantee you guys that you will lose lots of paying customers.

i hav 2 points 4 those new system of rendering:
1. why those settlings, which are in graphics section, are in Russian?! cause they should be in English. (but using my dictionary i recon, that this settlings should call, in my opinion, "Standart" and "Upgrade" n they changin render system).
2. u told, that u change those engine 4 computers with weak configuration, like notebooks. well, after a few played games i must say, that,(all settling are low), in this Standart mode, my fps are max betwenn 20-30. in this new mode 15-20 fps. so where r those changes?! cause in my HP Compaq Presario CQ56-115sw, in this same settling, in 0.7.5 version, my Fps was betwenn 30 to 50.

My other complaint would be the lack of MSAA.

The bloom effect is indeed far too high, it really destroys the graphics on the brighter maps. It sometimes even looks worse then the old render. Another issue is that when selecting the old render, it's a little tricky to drive sometimes, because some hills and depths are.... different, driving through/in the ground for example, is quite common.
I like the new renderer a lot, physics too. Bit less bright and more crisp graphics overall and it's nice. Only the flickering textures in the distance are a little odd. Overall I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality already, considering this is a first preview.
One other thing I have noticed is that the performance on medium settings on my notebook is below what it should be. I have a low-ish end graphics card in my notebook, althought it runs the game quite nicely with some things at high and some at medium during 7.5, but in 8.0 I'm forced to either switch to old render or go very low with settings. And the new render is REALLY ugly with low settings.
One other thing to note, all the russian on the settings page, make it a bit of a challenge to test....

Performance wise it seems to be working fine at maximum setting around 50-60ish framerates.
Bloom needs to be toned down a notch, or it needs an in-game slider so players can tune it to their personal tastes.

Everything seems to work ok on this system. All looks nice and I've seen no glitches yet.
It seems that ATI cards are still having issues though.
