Arrow Far Cry demo feedback thread

Some mirros

Better to continue the discussion here ey?

Well, the game is pretty cool, although i'm having a swap fest atm. My poor HDD is having a hard time. Think i need more RAM.

*Sigh*, this will be a long night.

Well, after two hours i give up. I just can't get this game to run as i want to.
If this is a hint how the big titles will run on todays hardware well, then i'm scared.

And enabling aniso makes some textures look..strange.

Just like it does in Halo. Perhaps this is another DX9-related thing?

Yes, I believe it is the blurring and pixel-shader 2.0

Huh you cant run the game on Athlon 64 3200+? The game require 512Mb RAM to run, look like you have less than 512Mb RAM.

And is your Radeon 9800XT got 128Mb? To run the game with the highest settings and much better textures, you will require 256Mb.

All 9800XT's are 256mb I believe, but the game ran pretty nice on my system.. all options maxed, well.. the multiplayer did anyways, still downloading the single player game.

Here's some screenshots I took on my GeForce 3.
-------------

I shot this dude when he was at the top of the steps and he rolled down until he finally stoped here. Unlike UT2K3 where bodies just slide around, these dudes actually roll and tumble.



It's like a jungle sometimes, It makes me wonder how I keep from going under. Uh huh huh huh.



The scopes on the weapons show the enviroment in real-time. Very cool.



Yay for Bumpmapping.



A good water shot.



Somebody's about to get owned.



Two homos talking about something.

Wow, just beat the demo, and I must say, what an incredibly awesome game! I must pick this one up! Totally surpassed my expectations. There are a few flaws, and a few framerate issues here and there, but hopefully those can be cleared up by release. Excellent game

Yep ,i have 512 MB RAM, but this games seems to be a real memory hog.
The 9800XT is the 256MB version.

Gameplay etc, is awesome, very nice. I'm buying this baby, no doubt about it.
The game runs great with all settings at 'Very High', it's just that nasty HDD swapping from time to time that kinda takes away the fun.
Lowering the settings doesn't make it better either.

But i've heard some guy at valve say the same thing about Half Life 2. 1024 MB of RAM and your gaming experience will be optimal.

New times now i guess huh?
