is the submit direct from 3Dmark.com function working? I don't see an option to for directly submitting a score from 3DMark.com anymore...

Belgium leeghoofd says:

just add manually... don' tbe lazy 😛

Australia cbjaust says:

Yeah, I always do put up results manually, I was questioning the rule about having to send the scores via 3DMark.com:

Belgium leeghoofd says:

We just need to crosscheck the result on FM

Australia cbjaust says:

I figured submissions are being accepted even though submitting from 3DMark,com doesn't work and the rule is worded as "must be submitted directly from..."

Ukraine Lopata says:

So LOD is now illegal and what I suppose to do? A lot of the guys got top scores. Unfair advantage to say the least. If you want to play for real - wipe all Time Spy rankings, start over and lets see who won the silicone lottery.

United States Mr.Scott says:

Report the subs you see LOD and tessellation tweaks being used. They will be removed.

Belgium leeghoofd says:

LOD was never allowed with Timespy from day 1...

Ukraine Lopata says:

@leeghoofd no way... Damn I need to wash my eyes... Always thought that every 3dmark had LOD in the Allowed "optimisation" list.

Belgium leeghoofd says:

Timespy didn't require a screeznshot at start, only a VALID futuremark link
