    actually i forgot to mention , as you might already know im that famous "no pagefile guy" on TPU ... it's another PC that has 4 GB total RAM and no pagefiles because i hate it :p

    So i put some old 1 GB temporarily in and it was fine then atleast with the DX texture out of mem errors.

    Would haven't been issue if it was on my own PC, but still it's a buggy beta i didn't expect ... ok ok back to rage.

    Speaking about the engine; Look what article i found: http://hothardware.com/printarticle.aspx?articleid=1716

    That's great preview. EXACTLY what i need for those noobs who don't understand megatextures.


    Ah if i did sooner , it's from 16 August 2011. one thing wrong though , iphone Rage is not a mobile version of IDTech5 ... it's just a proprietary carmack implementation with some of the methods similar how maps are done on the big project, so it's not in a thousand lightyears the same engine.

    i pre-ordered through direct2drive when they had this huge sale a few months ago.

    anyway - it's letting me download the game tonight. i won't be able to install until tuesday, but it's a good thing because.

    the download is 17.8GB
    . Now, it is possible that d2d messed up and doubled files or something. or, it's a huge download. which is people? downloading now anyway, throttled for now.

    Yup 21 gigs. Back when I first started using the internet downloading a few megabytes was a big deal. Now a couple of gigs is nothing.

    I've decided to swing by Gamestop today and pay for RAGE before it releases tomorrow. I thought about downloading it but I happen to have $50 gamestop card so I may as well use it.

    I wasn't really hyped for this game till I watched that 14 minute video posted but damn this looks like it is right up my alley.

    Isn't this a 25GB download off Steam :eek:
    What is the benefit of buying a retail copy vs. a download off Steam?
    Doom was amazing, I can only imagine RAGE being equal or better. Can't wait :)

    I'll be at Gamestop tonight for the midnight release. If I get through fast enough I may be able to play past the first 14 minutes of the game before going to bed.

    Hell ya I'm amped up as well. I've been lurking this thread and several others, and watching this game for years...great to see it finally coming to fruition. This is the last game I've preordered since the failure that was Black Ops.

    The last title I preordered before that was Borderlands which I was pleasantly surprised with (I know there are haters in this thread for BL, I like & enjoy it, you hate it, life goes on, the world keeps on spinin'.). I'm hoping that pre-ordering this was not a mistake, though this is the next big ID Software title, and the first one in forever, it's gonna be the kind of epic that other games are compared to for a couple of years.

    I will say nice work Ruski, your dedication to the amount of information and the effort put in to keep your info legit are appreciated.

    My poor AMD Phenom II 940 is taking forever to decrypt this game. Maybe I'll run out to grab some snacks.

    I mentioned this in the other thread...Which I thought was this thread. After decryption there's another 9gb download. Plenty of time to go grab some munchies.

    Oh Steam is getting tricky. Another 9 gigs? I guess It is time to get some snacks and watch some TV. I downloaded the other 21 gigs in ~4hrs last time. Should be pretty fast for the extra 9.

    Oh how sweet it is! Got some pretzels and soda and come back to a finished download.
    Only 412 megs on my machine, BTW.

    I will talk to you fine fellows later, I need to get my game on.

    I played the first few missions. The graphics are awesome. My textures seem to take awhile to load.. Don't know whats up with that. If I am not directly looking at something and I turn it takes a second for it to go into full resolution if that makes any sense. So far the game is very cool looking and fun.

    Well first almost hour after launch and I'm pretty pissed off. The game is broken, it's playable but visually it's borked. I have tried 11.9's and the new Catalyst Rage Performance Drivers. I get flashing textures, slow loading streaming texture so everything's muddy when I turn really fast, I even get artifacting on the screen. This isn't loading my GPU more than 70%, my temps are good, I played 2 hours of SupCom w/o issue at much higher temps and loads. To top that off the textures aren't really all that impressive...sure some scenes look good but I think the "auto graphics settings" feature is borked. On Steam and Bethesda forums everyone are having these issues.

    Gotta say it, Borderland's launch was better than this for me...I now remember why I stopped preordering games. Time to wait for the patches...this is where we'll see ID's support step up and make it right. I will say what I have played is pretty neat, but I can't get into the game when my gun is flickering, enemies are flickering, textures are fading in slowly, and lastly the artifacts that go over the screen in random shapes. Again, here's to hoping that they patch this game up, get them damn textures fixed, and get this thing playable.
