Still waiting for a video card before I even open the package! Ian went to Future Shop and got me a copy, where the 1st 10 customers also got a free SoundBlaster Audigy card and a free copy of Knights of the Old Republic! Sweeet deal!

Video card should be here by Monday!

I installed it on my pc, but only got a 3d prophet 3 64 megs.
I can run it in 1024 by 768 but it rushes, so play it 800 by 600, pretty good but not with all the extra features for the pixels and map rendering...

Still sure I will prefer Half-Life 2. But still Counter-Strike is my all time favourite, just love owning people on that game !!!

I tried it out on a Radeon 9700 and it runs great at 800 or 640. But I've been keeping it at 640 since it looks good and holds a solid framerate.

Today I stuck a Geforce FX 5950 Ultra that we had at work in my case to see how it will do at higher settings this weekend. It's pretty funny because I have a Shuttle case, and they're pretty small to begin with. I couldn't put the cover back on the case because the card is big enough to get in the way. I'd guess there's a pound and a half of copper on it.

JeffT:

What have you got for a system?
I'm running a 2.4 P4 with a gig of RAM, and with a Radeon 9700 it runs perfectly smooth at 640x480.

If you have 512 meg of ram and a card like a Geforce 4 or MX, you might be able to get good frame rates as long as you stick to the 640x480. It looks surprisingly good at that resolution though.

Still, ultra high detail makes for some extremely detailed monsters

Go to My Computer, right click on it, then go to "properties" and it will tell you your processor speed and how much RAM you have.

Well my boyfriend played some more of the game and his verdict is now that he believes it did not live up to it's hype and the original Half Life for example is still a better game. He does think the graphics are excellent, but feels the multiplayer capabilities were not what you would expect......

What about you guys?

I have no played this game yet but that's his review.

Awsome, thanks Jeff,

It says: AMD Athlon(tm) Processor
1.15 GHz
512 MB of RAM

Do you think thats enough to run the game along with my GeForce 4 card? Or if it even were able to run, would it be kinda crappy game speed?

thanks

They purposely made multiplayer weak, that was known years before the game came out, as Quake IV was being made simultaneously, and will pick up the clack in the multiplayer department. Kind of like Half Life2 won't have any multiplayer, but Counter-Strike: Source will cover it and ship with the game.

Tough to say, as I haven't played the "REAL" game yet. All I've played is the leaked beta over a year ago, and then a few games on a display computer in Future Shop, but that was running at 640x480 resolution, so I don't count that. It looked typical first-person shooter to me. Nothing more, nothing less. I think the true measure of the new technology will be subsequent games. Always is. Can't wait!

No problem JeffT. I think you should be able to run he game at medium - low settings. Its a pretty forgiving game. Cormack is a GENIUS when it comes to coding for a broad spectrum of computer configurations.
