Your PC Specifications for Battlescape

#5

I don’t see any useful information in providing the Case, Motherboard and Power Supply to I-Novae Studios. Monitor resolution and aspect ratios might also be useful.

CPU: AMD Athlon™ 7750 Dual-Core Processor × 2
Ram: 4GB(2x)
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT (ran Battlefield: BC2 on low/medium settings with this)
Hard Drives: 1TB & 0.5TB
OS: 64 bit Linux (Ubuntu), might run Infinity: Battlescape with WIne. The chance is even more likely if there is a OpenGL only option.
Min monitor resolution: 800x600
Max monitor resolution: 1280x1024
Monitor aspect ratio: 5/4 & 4/3

It is more intended for us as a place to discuss our hardware and to see what other fellow players will be using in-game.

CPU: I3 2100 3.1Ghz
Ram: 8gb DDR3
Video Card: GTX 660 OC 2gb

I’m considering to get another graphic card in a year or so, but not sure however if it’s worth to change as the motherboard / CPU. They seem to me strong enough to survive quite a few years yet :slight_smile:

#10

I can tell you guys that the single most important component for Battlescape will be your GPU. The difference in visual quality between using a mid-range and enthusiast level video card will likely be significant.

So, did anyone else pre-order an Oculus Rift?

Will Battlescape have the user option for graphics adjustments from low, medium & high or will it permanently be set on the same setting for everybody?

#16

It will have low, medium, and high however if you want to be in the alpha test then it will be fixed at high until we have the time to build in proper scaling.

Case: Antique White Systemax from 1995 (Nobody would steal a computer in this case right? :wink: )

#19

Seriously? That’s awesome. I never even considered using an old tower case. I probably could have gotten a full computer for less than I paid for the case (not that I paid much for my case…)

#20

ASUS’s copper heatsinks are incredible.

#21

It’s been working fairly well so far. The only concern I have atm is that the stock Intel CPU cooler is having difficulties when the chip runs near peak (going by Windows Task Manager). It’s been fairly warm in the past week, and on some less optimised games the core thermal sensor starts reporting figures dangerously close to 70 degrees C

#22

Yeah, some cases are stupidly expensive really. I had to drill a few holes in the side for extra cooling and fan mounts but otherwise it works as well as any other case.

It’s quite nostalgic, I remember playing Star Wars PodRacer / Star Wars Starfighter /Civ II etc on it back in 2000… now it’s playing all the latest titles easily :smiley:

#23

Did you OC your proc? That might happen with stock coolers. Have you thought about aftermarket?

#24

No OC, most games shouldn’t stress processors though. May also be dust accumulation. I ought to repair the chassis at some point anyway, so I’ll be able to see then.
