Re: EQ2 - Driver-Settings-Performance
Put me in the category of crap performance. I've got a new-ish Alienware 3.0ghz, a gig of RAM and a 6800 Ultra, and the performance was pretty lame. Lotsa chugging, stuttering and dropped frames... even when I turned down the settings lower, the performance issues never went away 100%.
Having said that, I cancelled my account and am returning the game. I felt like I was playing the options menu more than the game itself, and it just became more of a hassle than anything else.
WoW runs excellent at highest quality, 8xAA and 16xAF, and it ends up looking a helluva lot better than EQ2 once you turn all the options off just so you can run it ok...
Something is wrong with the EQ2 engine... they'll fix it eventually, I'm sure, and when they do, I'll take another look, but I'm not going to waste my time endlessly messing around in the options menu. YMMV of course, especially if you are into settings and options tweaking.
