Install, Patching game up to current version 1.7, Playing the game
What does not
- You will need to use a "no-DVD patch/fixed .exe" to be able to start the game. - Anti-Aliasing is not possible, even if I try to enable it by overriding AA through nvidia-settings the game fails to start. - Sometimes the game fails to start. Though, lather, rinse, repeat apparently remedies this. Although "UseGLSL=disabled" did help a bit, but as others testers mentioned before, the game still has some serious slowdowns. Official system requirements: ------------ CPU: AMD 64 3200+/Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz RAM: 512MB (XP) / 1GB (VISTA) HDD: 8 Gigabyte GPU: 256MB Nvidia 6600GT/ATI Radeon 1600XT In comparison, under windows 7 64 bit Guru3d for instance measured even 66fps on 2560x1600 testing my GPU with COD MW2 (same engine) (http://www.guru3d.com/article/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-460-soc-review/10) with every setting maxed out, I quote: "Our image quality settings selected are the most complex you can set in-game. 4x AA, maxed out anisotropic filtering, the best textures, everything is enabled to its maximum capability. Any decent graphics card can run the game, it's that simple. There's no need to give in to lower quality settings." And I have a brand new system: Core i7 950, 6GB RAM, Gigabyte nvidia GTX 460 SOC. Yet I had to downset the resolution to a mere1024x768, both AA and AF disabled and still the game freezes for about 15 seconds quite frequently on scenes with a lot of onscreen action (compiz disabled). So there' s still pleanty of room for improvement I guess ;-)
What was not tested
Installing, patching and playing worked without dll-overrides, but because of the problems described above I rate it gold instead of platinum. Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions. Reported significant performance problems are certainly "issues for normal use."
