will i be able to run ESF smoothly? - as a guide, I can play the graphically intense Natural Selection at a (barely) acceptable frame rate. I dont have a problem running other mods (including the un-scaled alpha ESF)
On my old comp I could run natural selection at 8 fps on 800/600. In the beta I get 30 fps on 1024/768. The beta does not kill you fps because it does not have all those rhings you have to build taking up memory.
On my 466MHz Celeron A, 384MB RAM, and TNT2 Ultra 32MB I get between 7 and 30 FPS depending on the map. Only the higher end machines can run the water maps witout problems. You almost need an AGP card to run the mod, as the Textures are very sexeh, and require special love from the graphics card.
i only have a 750 duron, 192 mbs of ram, mx400 pci. i hope that is enough, and since its a good netcode then im assuming fps wont be that bad conisdering when u lag worse get choppy ure fps just go to crap. I run all hl mods fine so i have nothing to worry about right? some1 reassure my for the love of.....
Ok, I do have some good information for ppl with lower end specs.
First off, I run the following setup:
Windows ME (Mistake Edition, they have the nerve to call it an OS?)
PIII 933 mhtz
256 MB PC100 SDRam
Voodoo 5 5500 PCI
While not totally an ancient setup yet, it's really not ideal in any way PCI video is the worst idea ever Despite it being a 64 meg card, it still doesn't run a lot of things well. Even so, I can run games like JKII at 70 fps. That ain't right
Wicked GL. Not totally sure how it works, however the basic idea is that it accelerates any quake based game. Including Half Life. However, at least on my system, it didn't want to install to HL properly. So, I renamed hl.exe to quake2.exe, and installed it, then turned it back to hl.exe. Not only do I run JKII well, I run NS almost flawlessly. Considering even DOD used to be hard to play because of graphics, and JKII would crash to 5 fps in a lot of places, this is a vast improvement.
is wicked3d for voodoo cards only, the last time i dl'd wicked3d was for my voodoo3......it would be sweet if i could dl it for my gf2. Ya i know the horrors of pci, but when u overclock it using powerstrip its worth it
lol suckas, havent seen someone top my system yet, tho I know some people easily can
Windows XP (its quite the experience getting it to work good after the first month ;( )
anyways also Geforce 4 64 megs
1.7 Pentium 4 CPU
Optical mouse, nice mousepad, looks pimped
ohh Im gonna own all of j00 lol
Look forward to seein ya on the lava levels (good hiding places (evil grin))
Also if anyone has a server with people that could gimme lessons in hand 2 hand, I would uh... be a mercenary for whomever you are lol so uh yeah msg me.
