Re: Vanguard NDA lifted
To fix flashing textures I turned off hardware occlusion and set viewing distance to max. Oddly this fixes some close up items indoors as well. I've got all my sliders to the right and it set to "highest quality" @ 1680x with 16x AF. It runs fine. They do need to smooth out odd hitching in some areas. With its highest quality lighting on I like its look.
I have a HE Sorcerer and a Qal-whatever Bloodmage. I like them both, a lot. I tried a few melee classes and didn't do as well or feel as powerful. I'm still a relative lowbie with both classes so we will see how it goes. I have yet to die on either caster.
I have been giving them real feedback on every quest and the game in general. It will be interesting to see what developes over the next six months to a year.
