btw i killed the dog lol
I just found out that there was actually an explosion in Chernobyl in 1986...wow.
Seems like a great game, might pick it up.
me want link..................
not a NUCLEAR EXPLOSION! It was a explosions at a nuclear power plant that contamintaed a great deal of area, serious but a hugely different thatn a nuke!
Oh well, close enough...
btw, how are the frame rates on our 7900GS?
Yeah, the real story behind it is crazy. They still see effects from it today, much the same as the Japanese do from the WWII bombings. Anyway, I can't wait to try out that game.
courtesy of ViTALiTY or emudvd?
I'm getting this game for sure, its amazing. The demo looks like it only lets you select medium texture details tho?
be aware guys,it is NOT that easy to run.on mine at 1280x1024 not even all maxxed it was about 17-25fps avg.
i think its emudvd
one of the reactors overheated from a valve or pump failure if i remember correctly
when they tried to flush out the reactor core to prevent the core from going critical (as in undergo a cataclysmic nuclear chain reaction) the core superheated the cooling fluid and blew up, caving in the roof of the reactor and firing tonnes of irradiated graphite (used for cooling) blocks that scattered hundreds of metres around the reactors radius. At the same time it spewed out a heapppp of radioactive ions in gaseous form, which pretty much made alot of the area downwind unusable for farming (as people began getting cancer from irradiated vegetables). They ended up having to build a concrete sarcophagus, or a thick shell over it.
Its still radioactive today, and the radiation constantly damages the enclosure, which needs to be replaced periodically, at the risk of laborourers and structural engineers i can imagine.
The town is uninhabitable...makes for a great game environment
have you seen what they are replacing the sarcophagus with? now that is truely impressive engineering
btw the towns not really that uninhabitable, people are starting to go back, and a few people never left.
not for me, tho, i like my balls the way they are
looks nice....cant wait to play it with my 8800...
i will be playing in a half hour right when i get home! lol. hope it isnt your standard FPS which gets old after an hour.
i got it just a few hours ago, i can just about run it on low settings but i aint got the 2gb of ram this game NEEDS to run smoothly.
took some screenies for you to look at, some are at 1280x1024 (pics 1-11) and some at 1600x1200 (12-22 which have everything maxed out completely just for quality purposes)
holy balls this game is boring. i just walk around doing shit for people. sure i kill some people and animals sometime but its very bland and repetitive. graphics arent very good. i have it at 1024x768 everything maxed out. get about 40 FPS. not impressed at all. do not buy this game!
What is your take on the multiplayer side of the game, I got in on the beta and it was pretty fun!
cant play the multi ,not on my version anyway.
so is it out in the usa then properly?
nah cant play multi. dont really want to either.
i'm getting the emuDVD 'trial' version too, just to see how it runs - i'll be buying it retail when it hits aus for the multiplayer tho.
i just got a GTX today.... dear god, the graphics better be awesome...
GTX for an 19inch monitor ???????
Waste of money...
I wouldnt call it a waste of money......Maybe he will just have a high framerate all the time with minimal slowdown? Also is even more positive to have that card for future games. So I wouldnt say its a waste.
oh i got a 22" widescreen as well - i havent updated my specs
Edit: sigs updated to include my new OC as well. Back on topic, hows stalker treating you people?
