Wow did they smooth out Hathor Zhi.

I just ran through the city @ 1680x highest quality 16x AF and got no large pauses from chunking. As a mattter of fact my FPS didn't dip a lot at all when entering new areas. Usually I'd get red FPS crashes when moving from one area to another while it was loading or chunking. Some times the pauses were longer than others. By red FPS I mean watching the in game FPS monitor that comes up when you use ctrl+p. Red numbers = critical low, Yellow = low and marginally acceptable and green = acceptable.

I still get red fps pauses out doors when loading|chunking as I pan around to suddenly load many things behind me. It's very brief though.

I'll repeat for 8800 owners; disable bloom and use HDR instead. That helped smooth the game for me and actually added FPS. The 8800 is a HDR beast. It does very well with it.

I am running it on Vista x64 with the latest drivers. Supposedly the game can take advantage of a x64 OS. I don't remember the specifics and Brad has stated it a few times in the past. I believe he plays the game on Win XP Professional x64. Of course that could be BS.

I use Vista x64 for on line games and any time I am connected to the internet. (Browsing etc) For older games and Oblivion I boot up MCE 2005 instead. I miss my HDR + AA too much and MCE 2005 still has the best OGL and DX9 performance at the moment.

No. The only way I can get vsync to function in Vista with VG is to run the game in a window. For some reason doing that forces it on. You may want to try that and just run one res down in a window, ie for 1680x that would be 1440x etc. Otherwise you will have to live with it off for now under Vista.

You may want to wait for the first service pack this fall before you start using it as a main OS, or just dual boot like I do.

Yeah. I just sold the copy I had and will probably wait on SP1 before I go with it again. Can't do w/o my vsync.

Magus, I kept getting kicked last night for some reason. I think my internet was acting up. I'll probably be on some this weekend, though.

Im on Vanguard almost every night. However, I will agree the world is FAR too large for a "small population". The population actually isn't that small. They consider Woefeather server a "heavy traffic" server, but still there arent enough players imo. They really shouldn't have started with so many servers.

I agree as well. I am in a pretty tight knit guild so I usually have people to group with, and in the process of running TK alot, we've met a few others that really like to group with us so it's not bad. Trying to find a group in a "dungeon" area isn't that bad (TK, Anthill, etc) but to find a quest group or xp group outside a dungeon is near impossible. I would like to say they should have started with fewer servers, but the launch could have gone even worse if they would have done that (stressing the servers too much)...Oh well, still having fun at the moment...
