Some Screenshots!




These were all .png and converted to .jpeg
It's kinda hard to get a screenshot when you in a firefight, so this is the best I can do!

OMFG, I just got done playing for like 10 mins. My god, the graphics are fucking awesome and the gameplay is pretty tight. 4am + cold room + headphones + no light on = 50x more scarier.

Unless you've got a premium/paid account, or for some odd reason, NO ONE was downloading from the public server, I don't see that being possible.

I had to wait through 470 people in front of me. Went pretty quick though, only about 45 minutes or so.

Haven't installed it yet, gonna do that today while my two htpc's are formatting/reinstalling.

Meh, didn't want to sign up for yahoo shit. I get enough spam as it is.

I played it a bit today... got tons of "virtual memory low" errors... and it ran ok once shit was loaded, but damn near every corner you turn it was chop chop. Even at 800x600. I was non-plussed so I said fuck it, and went and got a gig of ram... been wanting to for a while.

Silky smooth with almost everything maxed (turned off soft shadows, because when it's on, I get no shadows , also only doing 4x AA, and 8x AF, though could probably go higher), 1024x768... for some reason they neglected to do 1280x1024, and it's playable, with some chop at 1600x1200 (no widescreen ) when I get around the volumetric lighting, but otherwise smooth. I guess 1024's ok to play at, though I'm getting spoiled with HL2 at 1920x1200, and now with the gig, I'm able to play WoW at 1920x1200 without any chop in orgrimmar.

So far, seems to be pretty decent... the little girl running around kinda creeps me the fuck out.

One question though, specifically to Roliath... how the hell do you take screenshots? Fraps or some other screen cap program... or is there a way ingame to do it?

I used Fraps,
btw what is everybody playing the game at?
I'm playing the Game with everything at Maximum (no Soft Shadows!) 2xAA, 4xAF, 1280x960 (why no support for 1280x1024??) and it's very playable!
I can't get over how well the A.I. was done..

Just finished the demo... goddamnit. Was ready for a fight

For some reason, I don't have the 1280x960, or 1280x1024 option in my video config, only 640, 800, 1024, 1600. Makes no sense. My friend however, has the 1280 option. I found out you can edit the settings.cfg file to set any resolution you want... tried to force widescreen, but it just rendered at 4:3 and put black bars on the sides

But yeah, save for soft shadows being off, everything is maxed, 1024x768 and it's smooth. I'd like to turn soft shadows on, but apparently it's a bug with 6800's, whether it's the card, or the game, I'm not sure. But you pretty much get a choice of either AA or soft shadows, apparently you can't have both in this game Runs smooth at 1600 as well, as long as you turn off volumetric lighting... but why the hell would you want to do that? That definitely takes away from the mood.

If you hate that, you'll probably hate even more that it's a laptop

Just finished it. The AI was, indeed, awesome. Great atmosphere too!

I just wish the models looked a little better.
