Any takers?

It is a preview not a full review, again anyone in Europe. I was going to do it, but I ran out of time.

You'll need a decent (ie fast) spec gaming PC.

if no one else wants it i'll do it, but my pc is a little creaky for fps - still only got a geforce2 in my box :o

I got a state-of-the-art TNT2 Ultra and a massive processor speed of four hundred million cycles per second.

How decent is decent? I can probably run it, but if it’s being hyped up graphically then I won’t be much good.

well it's a preview of a FPS, so I'm guessing it's a bit unoptimised. At least a Geforce 3 would help, fast processor. It chugged a bit on my system (gf3, 1.2ghz athlon), at 1024x768, with a lot going on. of course running a much lower res would probably help a lot.

I think my Radeon 7200 could be the bottleneck then :D.

I have a GF4 Ti4200 but only a 1Ghz processor so I probably bottleneck somewhere else!

Could do it if noone with a faster machine turns up.

you've got a gf4 ti 3600 and you threw it at that 1g processor?! dude?! what happened to cohesive action?!

seriously, i'm jealous of your card anyway

well it fits my life,
the mind and soul of a comedic sexual god, in the body of a turnip :)

I was gonna upgrade bit by bit...the processor+motherboard is next, but that's all more complicated than the graphics card, all sorts of little numbers and shit so i got lost and decided to bury my head in the sand instead...

So The Shaker or Beta1.

I'll do a random pick in a bit, if no one states any more clearly that they really.. really.. want to do it / or don't ! :)

The Shaker

i wonder if that works with the ladies.

well that was easy!

Shaker - have fun. If it doesnt like your Ti3600 we can try it on my Ti4200.

Anyway FPS are not really my thing - I voluntered cos it seemed noone else had the specs to do it and it would be a major waste to have noone do it.
