Small question, why get this game if u cant run it at decent settings? See my sig, i got the latest stuff and i cant run this game with nice settings in a town? Mayb if it is for future PC's but we r supposed to play the game NOW, not after a year of its release..?
btw i dont have the game yet... but if im getting it, i wanna play at beautifull settings and it is not possible without crapp performance. So imo it isnt worth getting the game since u wont be able to play at the settings u want to play at anyway

Well if you read that guide I psoted..you can get the game to look beatuiful and still run well...but dont expect to put sliders all on max like any other game and be able to play with good framerates.

To the contrary, I'm returning it precisely because I'm a gamer... not an endless tweaker. Some people are having to tweak settings on the fly based on whether they're in town or out in the field, etc. That's not for me.

Not sure why you took that tone and attitiude. Did I run over your cat or something?

force AA/AF off, You will get a nice performance boost. I set my CP to High Quality and turn off AA and AF. Ingame I play on Very High Quality with custom settings and once set I never had to touch them, The game runs smooth for me. Poeple who are complaining on performance, either lower your settings or defrag your PC The game can and will run smooth if your PC is kept nice and optimized.

Sorry don't blame the games great engine on your ****ty PC's.

Too late for me... it's already been returned to EB for preorder on another game.

And I wouldn't call a new-ish Alienware computer a pos either. There are enough people complaining about similar (poor) performance issues on Sony's techinical boards and over on VN to point to a problem with EQ2's engine, and not people's computers.

Like I said however, I'm sure that they'll nail it down, and when/if they do, I'll give it another spin if I'm not deep into another mmog at that time.

It would be naive to think, especially after playing it, to think that EQ2 wasn't at least slightly rushed out the door to beat other similar games to the market.

No its peoples computer, If you look at about half the people complaining on the forums they all have 5700's or 9800pros. These aren't generally bad cards but for EQ2 they are... The game is a system killer hands down... Your system should be mantained and up to date to expect EQ2 to run smooth on it. Even Adware can cause it to run like crap.

All Alienware's are a over priced crap... rather own a dell...

I think this game is one which will merit 2 gigs of memory. I have found a good performance settingh is lower animation detail in the difference. helps CPU resources alot in cities. But I still swap HD alot.

I went off of that settings guide and the game is running great now. The settings arn't as high as I'd like them to be but considing the guy is running a x800xt, p4 3000mhz, 2 gigs of ram I'd guess we are all in the same boat.

Thanks for the link.


btw, does anyone know how to level 10? I'm at 170% and can't level up, did I miss something?

Need to complete your subclass quests, in order to do that. Check your Hallmark quest log and look for "Priest, Fighter, Scout, Mage training"
