Tell me about it.

Soul - On a more serious note, my nephew has a rig very much akin to yours, so I am interested to see how it runs, as he would love to play the game as well, but isn't sure if he'll be able to.

Please report how it goes if you get it and mess around with it a bit.

Thanks.

Sure thing, LD.  Looking at the main forums it looks like I might be able to run it at defaults setting without a preformance hit, BUT we'll see.

I think perhaps Hetz got the game from that Direct Download thingy... I don't know, just guessing.

As far as my system goes Soul:

AMD 64 X2 - 4600+  (I think that's right - I don't remember)
2 gig of some really fast RAM  (or so I'm told)
nVidia gforce 7900GT Video Card  (256 or 512 ram - I don't remember)
19" LCD monitor with native 1280x1024 resolution.

I'm guessing I'll be fine.

6600GT not good enough for NWN2


Just read the post look like my 6600 is the bare minimum.   No money to upgrad at this point, so I might have to hold off on NWN2.   No wonder PC gaming is turning me off

The Space Marines who I thought I was pretty comptent using are getting thier asses handed to the by the IG.  By the time I get on of two squads up the IG are rushing me with 5-6.   I'm playing on normal, so I think I am going to drop the difficulty to easy to see how that goes
Are you playing the campaign?  Sometimes you'll get rushed by the opposing hero unit and his bodyguards that he's earned from map conquests.  If you invade in a neutral space, or just play the skirmish mode, you probably won't get invaded.

IG Guardsman are very quick to build as well, and very cheap.  They come right out of the headquarters I think, versus the Space Marines building a barracks and then the longer load time for space marines.




Actually, I replayed it and went aggressive.  The IG have two bases up, should have read the briefing, but after a few Space Marine pushes I was able to damage both thier enconomies.  I beat it.  Now I'm in  the middle of trying to take the Space Port from the Necrons

Relax WoW-Boy.  From everything I'm reading, Creative Assembly released the demo early due to the leaked version getting out.  The rumor is that the retail version will fully support your processor.

You can go back to Orc Dress-up now, and continue chatting with the children.

Quote from: Turtle on October 09, 2006, 09:52:17 AM

That sad thing is that the world has pretty much moved past the whole nuclear annihilation thing.  Sure, there's still nuclear plans, but for the most part nobody wants to end the world by launching a nuke.

It means nothing now to have nukes, it just means that you're now on the target list to get nuked when the world comes to that.

This does mean, however, that it's now much more likely that some city in the world, probably in the US, will get nuked in some terror or sneak attack when these countries realize that nukes are costing them too much and start selling them to the highest bidder.


That's the truth here.  Only thing N. Korea having the bomb threatens are his neighbors.  He could be stupid and nuke S. Korea or Japan, but the US will just answer in kind.  If memories serve me coreectly only nations that have nukes that could reach US shores are Russia and China
