The Secret World is a massively multiplayer online world with a unique modern-day setting and unparalleled freedom of character progression.
Imagine if every myth, conspiracy theory and urban legend was true.
Imagine a world where you can become anything you
want to be, without restrictions such as classes or levels. This is the
premise for The Secret World, Funcomâ€™s upcoming massively multiplayer
online game set in the modern-day real world.
What does not
There is still some flickering in
There is the case of one small solo instance ("illuminaty underground" on the savage coast) which was unplayable because of the lag.
The light reflects differently on the different parts of the body of all the characters.
What was not tested
You have to install d3dx9_43, d3dcompiler_43 and Steam, and to (almost) stop the ingame flickering, you have to force "StrictDrawOrdering" see here: http://www.codeweavers.com/support/wiki/mac/mactutorial/registry_keys. If you use "Playonlinux", go in the display tab of the configuration menu and enable StrictDrawOrdering. For the MS Windows to use, I tried XP, 7 and 8, they all seem to work the same. When you create your character, if the flickering is too much for you to bear, try reducing the resolution of the game to minimum. I chose Silver, because you can really play flawlessly but for that little flickering left and (as of today) 1 instance which is lagging. Excuse my weird english, I'm French.
