I was telling her to just kill it, I was almost freaking out too now. So she shot it and it died and she got up in tears saying she would never play that game again. It took me about an hour to convince her it was just a digital dear. Fun!


That's hilarious.

For anyone running SLI, grab the SLI Enhancement here:

It boosted my FPS from 40FPS to over 100FPS!

It actually looks kind of neat. I'm not that patient but I might know some other people who'd give it a go.

EDIT: Hmm... I might be a little under on specs though on the pc I was thinking of loading it onto.

Min specs:

Quote:
What specification does my PC have to be to run The Hunter?
The minimum system specifications that The Hunter has been tested to at this time are:

Pentium 4 (3 Ghz)
1 GB RAM
256 MB Graphics Card

Video Cards that The Hunter presently supports are:

Nvidia:

7 Series (from 7600 and above)
8 Series
9 Series
260
280
ATI:

X1800 (and above)
HD 2000 series
HD 3000 series
HD 4000 series
It should be stressed that this is the specification The Hunter has been tested to.
These specifications may well change in the future as testing continues and when The Hunter is released you will be able to adjust your settings.
I can scrape minimum requirements for the CPU and RAM, but GPU I don't have. I'm assuming a 6800GT will probably make the grade if a 7600 can. It might run kind of crappy though...

Yea, it is not exactly my type of game, but I find it kinda stealthy, and the graphics are really incredible for a free game Somewhere around Oblivion level.

They did a pretty good job on the water, trees and sunlight, but the ground and some of the other objects could use a little work. Here is a screenie of the sunset.



I think this guy needs some military training though. Takes him forever to load the gun and bring up the scope. He also could use a tripod for how badly he aims.

One thing they did do justice for is the gun. I cringe every time I shoot the thing. It sounds more beastly than the barret does in a lot of games. This could be a pretty sweet game for a free one. One thing that they have over MMO type games is there will probably be less cheaters on something like this.

How often do you go hunting? You don't ram ammo in as quickly as possible- that makes noise and is likely to spook the animal you're stalking, if the sudden and fast movement of ramming the rounds into your gun doesn't do it. Secondly, most hunters start out without a bi-pod or tri-pod for their rifle. And most hunting rifles weigh a fair bit more than your average automatic rifle (larger caliber, .308 or .30-06 vs. .223 for example), hence why the guns weigh more and are more difficult to hold steady when aiming.

I prefer the approach of realism this game seems to have. That said, I've yet to play, but based on what I'm hearing it sounds pretty good. If you enjoy hunting IRL it sounds like you'll enjoy this game.

I don't go hunting... I go killing, rambo style.
