Netbook Acer Aspire One 722 (11.2", 1.6 GHz, 2GB RAM, Radeon HD 6250)

  1. Netbook Acer Aspire One 722 (11.2", 1.6 GHz, 2GB RAM, AMD-C50 Radeon HD 6250) - no overclocking.

    Whatever, just for fun I installed Entropia on it, using Windows 8.1.
    50fps+ using 1366x768 in safe mode. @_@ (not windowed)

    The game-world still looks (very) good, except for your avatar, as it is completely grey.
    As soon as you set anything other then safe mode, it becomes close to unplayable (10 fps to 15 fps).

    Just to let you know.
  2. RAZER

    RAZER Custom title ... uh ...

    Yep, was able to play (on safe settings) on my Nvidia Ion powered netbook a while back. Have not tried it in over 2 years or so though.

    I have a crappy hp lapytop, and can play on medium at 35 fps. Use it to watch porn and manly stuff. Not buying it huh... Ok would you believe YouTube and coding for my robot? :geek:

    And yes laptop was missed spelled on purpose. :wink:

  4. That's probably the biggest negative of EU - you have to have the biggest and greatest of everything to get it to run on all four cylinders. I had a SFF cube PC with very similar spec up untill VU 9.0 I think it was in Sept 2009 (?), and everything was fine, but with VU9.0 I also had a grey avatar and v.bad redraw rates.
    Then I put together a dual core AMD with 8 gig memory and installed a 5000 series ATI sapphire gfx card and it ran ok although the gfx card is really for HTPC use, so things in the distance look better than things close up.
  5. There are still many textures that look like sh!t or stay blurred...gras is still a big problem in Entrpia (lag) and there are still glitchy trees, stones, walls...even rotating stone textures if you move your mouse around.

  6. I had floating stones a lot but no rotating one's - and I agree with the grass situation esp' that thin grass that tends to go on for ever without any break in certain locations, my gfx card had some issue with this...
  7. I purchased a GTX 670 somewhere last year, to leave the grass problem behind. But you can still feel the power of the grass... o_O

    The grass design of the past (GameBryo) never had lag. (but it also wasnt that "photorealistic"...or however people call todays graphics) ;)

    GameBryo is Fallout 3 and Elder Scrolls 4...just look at it

    Was going to say that I saw a demo of what the GamBryo engine was capable....and it was far and away lightyears ahead of anything we ever saw it used for. There really wasn't a need to change to Cry2 at the time we did IMO as the previous engine had a lot of life left in it that was untapped.
  9. MA wanted to be the 1st MMO using CryEngine 2. No matter at the cost. It worked. But did it really help ?
  10. I totally agree that EU's game physics before cryengine 2 was less photorealistic and more cartoon-like but was still good enough and with much less lag. Since CE2, whenever I was in areas like the grass plains south of ft.ithaca the grass would end up looking like a mass of vertical strings or strands as my gfx card just couldn't render it quickly enough. If mobs were attacking at the same time things got even worse.

    yeh they really seemed to be under using gamebryo.. its like they lost direction after it went from netimmerse, I think things are better these days and clearly certain things were more easily doable with ce2. I remember specifically speed of development was a major asset for them as mentioned my Alf Svensson.

    Still, while it helped the artists clearly it hindered the coders as we've seen nothing but slower and slower development releases and more obvious bugs come back and we STILL CAN'T SIT DOWN!!

  12. Yea, that's very true, we can't still sit down lol. Not on the floor, or on a bench in PA - not that it was always easy getting your AV to sit in something when you could do it ;)
  13. I think you can sit down in the starter area...or on a bench on Arkadia...but that was months ago...and I could be wrong ^^

    you can sit on chairs yes, but the animation is still dodgey at best. You cannot sit on the ground though or lay down last I checked

    Hm, procedural grass? Try switching objects quality to low.
