The devs have already made it clear that no device drivers are installed with the English download version of Black Shark, so I wouldn't worry. They are also thinking about a Steam release in additional to the boxed and donwload version. But it's not clear if that can be done.

The game looks interesting. I haven't played a helicopter game in years but I would love to get a modern one.

I hope they put it out on steam with only steam's protection with no activation BS otherwise I'll just skip it. I am still wary of anything starforce related or even suggested.

Are you making assumptions or have you actually played the game?

Also, do those graphics not have enough brown for you or something?

I haven't played much yet, but so far everything's in English.

Graphics look great on my rig @ 1920x1200, also you can get it to use 2 cores by alt tabbing & setting core affinity thru task manager, new patch coming will addresss this issue.

Average 40-50fps although subject to dips into 20's when flying low over high density buildings etc.

I suggest you aint played it have u? If not stfu
