Had to give it up.

From the little bit I was getting on the forums, the designers presumed that everyone who wanted to play it would have a top-of-the-line machine and so that's where they set everything at.

I have a middle-of-the-road machine, and it can't

No offense, or maybe a ton, but those are old video cards. PC Gaming isn't a cheap hobby, and HBS is using assets from a fairly high end game; MWO.

Also, its in BETA. It hasn't gone through the optimization phase, which is typically one of the LAST phases a game goes through. It will probably run better and smoother on older machines once it goes through.

Having said all of this, I haven't even bought it or played it.

P.S. There is a huge problem in the graphics card world as BitCoin farmers are setting up banks of systems with GPUs, hoarding and driving prices up.

I can get my Geforce 550 to run it. Just choppy.

That's what my desktop has...not sure what my laptop has because I don't really play games on it.

I'll probably only ever play the single player. I bought into the Beta as well, but it's one of those games where you need to invest a good amount of time to get good enough to win PvP.

So, I am playing it on 2 machines.

1) i3 - 2120 @ 3.3ghz (think single core, 4 virtual core?)
Geforce GTX 550 Ti
16gb RAM

Ran it in low, very smooth about 40-50 fps.

2) 7th gen i5 (dual core, 4 virtual cores)
Integrated Intel 620
8gb RAM

Loads fast. Run in low it gives about 30fps.

Neither system is optimal, game isnt optimized eiher, butits playable on what is roughly a 5yr old system.

Hope this help.

Yeah. I have a local friend we may set time up for. Skirmishes seem to last 20-30 minutes so not too bad if you plan for it.

I've asked Mordel to add a new topic area for people playing this.

I hope the official release will make it popular, or Chihawk will charge me directly for the new wing....
