I have a question for you all. Before I buy the game, I would like to know what type of FPS I would see with my system. I feel like having the smoothest possible gameplay will definitely help out my experience in the game.
My system is as follows:
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T6400 @ 2.00 GHz (x2)
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570
6 GB RAM
TOSHIBA MK3255GSX ATA HD with 320 GB storage space
If I could get an opinion on this I would greatly appreciate it.
I have a Core 2 Duo 2.8
And a 250gb harddrive.
In raw power my system is a little better then yours and i run everyting but shadows on the highest settings. ( shadows is on high instead of highest.)
when i turn on the highest settings for shadow my fps drops quite a bit ( i dont run fraps so cant see how much but i cen see it)
So for your system I would say if you put everyting on medium you will be able to run the game perfectly, you probaly can raise a lot to high but have to play whit it a bit.
the game graphics are not super high (relative to other games ) but the world does look good even stunning at times and the game play makes up for the lack of fancy graphics
Shadows can potentially increase the amount of pixels being generated on screen by 30-50%. Therefore, any signs of low frame rates can be resolved by lowing the shadows, or turning them off completely. I have them off, simply because i've done it with most games so im used to it now, i see no point to them, only more pixels for your card to deal with, whereas i'd rather have a larger viewing distance of terain and grass and trees lol.
