tracks aren't going to show you anything that you haven't set up yourself, with regards to graphics settings. For instance, if you have your settings at medium, and mine are at full max and I record a track for you, when you play it back, it will play back using your settings.
The only way to get 'max settings' is to change YOUR settings. Make a simple mission by dropping an a10 over downtown Tbilisi, set to 'player' , then hit the 'fly' button. Fly around a bit, look around the cockpit, then exit and save track. Now you can change your graphics settings however you like, replay the track and see what difference it makes.
Yes, but that's the point.
I want to have a track that I can replay over and over, repeating the same 'scene' rendered, so that I can tinker with my graphics settings to get them at a point where quality and performance are balanced.
In any case - I found a track on the official site
that seems to work pretty well. And, turns out, my system handles "everything on max" just fine.
(Somewhat surprise to see the game isn't multi-threaded, though. Shame to only use one core...)
