    Colourless has created a benchmarking tool that records Direct3D program output including textures, buffers, and shaders. Currently for XP: D3D8&9. I have a feeling that this tool will be the starting point for many interesting discussions. Thanks Colourless.

    Tool available here. Description and discussion here.

    Sounds like a nice piece of testing software but how do I use it?
    Only LCSPlayer.exe seems to do anything but even there I can only select stream file directory and exit. Im confused!

    edit: oops sorry! There was that description thread :oops:

    Even so, small readme file would have been cool!

    There's a thead in Technology and Hardware about it. I think you can get a lot of info from there.

    It looks faboo, but it's intimidating the bejesus out of me!

    Seems a tad complex.... :|

    Just:
    1. copy it to the game directory
    2. launch the game - it records automatically
    3. start the player - it creates a .csv file you can import into OpenOffice or Excel.
