Default Re: Thief 3 Deadly Shadows Thread

This is how hardware capabilities vs. software requirements work. If it's too slow, you drop a notch. I'm running a 9500pro at 800x600 with everything maxed, and it's quite smooth enough.

Just because the latest and greatest video card can run *most* games smoothly at 1600x1200@4xAA doesn't mean it can run *all* games smoothly at that setting. The fact remains that this is a very resource heavy game, so there's no more reason why it should run at that setting than, say, Doom3.

I, for one, think this game looks and plays fncking fantastic, despite the relatively low texture resolutions and framerates.
