Yeah, I don't think the game has any physics at all, really.

That was before they changed the art style. The game does install Physx drivers... I just don't see it anywhere in the game and I have put over 10 hours into the game already...

If it uses it the only thing I can think would be the item drops and death animations but once it hits the ground its static.

Yeah, it's not a Physics-heavy game by any means. Just like you said, other than item-drops and death animations (shooting a guy's leg off and watching it come apart from the body) there's not much more that needs to be calculated, so whether it's on the CPU or offloading to the GPU it's probably utilizing less than 1% of the hardware power anyway.

All depends on what you are doing, if you stick around in lowbie areas (like any MMORPG) you won't gain hardly any exp. On my 2nd character we spent so much time in the Lost Cave that we came out and the rest of the content in the first zone (Sledge, etc.) was extremely easy for us since we were a good 2-3 levels higher than anything else.

The game only seems to scale mobs in zones only after a certain amount of progression is made along the story. For instance, at first the Skagg camp directly outside Fyrestone was level 1/2, after we got to the point of having the Mine Gate Key they had increased to level 4/5. I haven't been back to Fyrestone after getting to the Dahl Highlands/Commons but I would suspect one of two things; they are either still 4/5 (meaning certain zones simply have a level cap) or they have increased in level to a point where we might get a little exp for killing them.

This game is rife with the ability to Power-level people. A friend of ours had played for a little bit longer than us and was level 25, and we were only level 21. After the night ended we were all level 26. Which is great when you want to get everyone back on the same page.

I'm surprised that NarcissistZero didn't share the info but I found a way to get AA to work without a large performance hit, only flaw is that items in your inv have a pink outline.

Use the UT3 AAComp 100c5 setting in nhancer and then force it, works like a charm. I'm playing with 4xAA without any problems.
