First and important note, for a clean and comparable test please try to disable tasks
(e. g. virus scanners) which are not needed here.
After you have downloaded the compressed tg2bench.zip file, extract the
tg2bench_v20061227.tgd benchmark file to any folder of your choice.
Start Terragen 2 and open
the .tgd test file. Then, go to "Renderers" section, choose "/Full Render" and finally the "Render Image"
button. No other setting may be changed. See this screenshot for details:
That's it... Make sure that the rendering screen does look like this:
Please also make
sure that the number of micro-triangles matches to the predicted value (see result table).
This number can be understood as a checksum.
Finally, please send the result including the information about the used hardware to email@example.com. If you are unsure about the hardware specifications, you can try the diagnostic program CPU-Z. The .exe file can be executed directly without any installation, so it will not harm your system.
