sorry about that, i now realise it was set to not show them..
ooh goody, a game that looks better AND runs better in DX10. i'll have to get hold of this game soon then.
here are some results here
Instead of just copying and pasting, I'll drop a link.
I'm not going to buy this game, because this game does not support multi-cores.
I'm sure they will do a patch for it soon, but if they don't oh well your loss

who fkin cares about u? gtfo kid :shadedshu
im gonna get this game really soon, loved the 1st
anyone know of a game demo link for this game?
Id like to try it out first before buying it
Its too open ended for a demo. I say buy it its really fun. Or if you can find the first for cheap.
thanks... from a brief skim of this thread (as I'm at work now)... it seems like the performance isn't that good... would I be ok in high settings on my rig @ 1920X1200?
If i go anything lower on my 24" screen it looks crap... all fuzzy
Not sure. I can run SHoC(the first) with everything max + 4xAA at 1920x1080 fine. Its just the DX10 thats killing everyone I'm pretty sure. It goes Full Dynamic Lighting, Enhanced Full Dynamic and DX10 Lighting or something like that, if you just do Full or Enhanced you will fine on Clear Sky
gotta love the 'Egg! Ordered it 2 hours ago and it's already shipped! Too bad it's friday though, if I'd have done it yesterday I'd be playing right now...
Yea I should have it tonight, eb/babages had it on their shelves so my dad grabbed a couple copies
Couple of tips:
1. First faction you come accross, do jobs for them. Then, join their faction. Free gun, armour and ammo! Later, leave, go join another one. Rinse and repeat. 2. Green boxes lying around usually have ammo in them. Raid em and sell it. 3. Upgrade your pistol first. Seriously, mine can snipe the balls of an ant at 50 yards.
lol nice. You can upgrade guns? And what about bandits wont they just steal my shit? If I upgrade and lose it then that would kinda pointless and is repairing expensive?
You did, that's why you replied to my post. Gtfo PT.
I would say probably not.. 1440x900 i'm fine at maximum settings with 8xAA, but if i pump up the resolution past that it gets to be pretty low fps..
I upgraded the first machine gun i found to take pistol ammo and a 45 shot clip i do have a browning pistol,but dont need to use it much now,as every body i come across has pistol ammo.
I use my pistol more than my rifle... also, anyone know how to force an emission to take place?
like...a nocturnal emission?
heh couldn't resist!
hey ben, how do you leave factions? i cant seem to find out. thanks
Yeah, I just found that out... looks like the option to leave was removed in the latest patch. You could always try... killing someone in the faction, see if they kick you out, but then you have new enemies.
already tried that...wiped out the whole duty base with no avail .. if anyone has any answer to this please tell me ^.^
