When you start the client, one of the following messages is displayed:

1. "Your graphic card/driver don't support the minimum requirements for the next EL release. Please upgrade your driver. If this don't help, you need a better graphic card."

2. "Your graphic card supports the absolute minimum requirements for the next EL release, but don't expect that you can use all features."

3. "Your graphic card supports the default requirements for the next EL release."

4. "Your graphic card supports more than the default requirements for the next EL release."

5. "Your graphic card supports all features EL will use in the future."

 

Please vote for the one that your client displays, so that we can better plan some features for the next update.

All is fine here.

 

Running +70 FPS with full features in votd with many people, one thing I have off is rain, it drives me insane and it's hard to see, otherwise everything else is on. :D Eye-candy, Blood, etc all on.

 

Running on a Radeon 9600 Series, 128mb, with 1 Gb of RAM. :P

My card can handle the absolute minimum but

1. I personally don't much like the eye candy (spell effects etc, do like the glowies) so I disabled it.

2. I'm planning on getting a new card anyway, I'm not in a hurry though, may take awhile :D

Desktop is GeForce 5200 FX 128MB running through PCI, 512MB RAM, Athlon XP 2200+, and runs wonderful.

 

Laptop is GeForce Go 5120 128MB sideport through AGP, 1GB RAM, AMD Sempron 3200+, runs even more wonderful.

 

I think I can handle 3d heightmapping. :D

My 3 month old laptop supports the "bare minimum" and as I have just got it... I don't see me getting another to play a free game. Disappointing but that is life.

While my desktop supports all the features, and is where I normally play, neither of my laptops do. So, for whatever that's worth.

This applies for me as well.

It would be nice to have a minimal client (perhaps only 2d) to let people play on old PCs or maybe at work...

Running everything smooth here.

I keep Eye Candy off most of the time tho.

Just run it when I feel like seeing glowy swords and the spells effects.

Sometimes the restore spell keeps me from getting bored during training.

 

But all fine.

And eh.. btw, I'd consider using Eye Candy all the time if you upped the amount of blood splatting outta monsters. :D

Your computer doesnt know what your gfx card is. you have no drivers.

Untill you can get windowns (or whatever operating system you are running) to realize what your card is, you cant get drivers.

That or your looking in the wrong place.

Possible GFX cards you could have

Nvidia

ATI

VOODOO

Intel

There are more, but i cant think of the others.

I'm #5- supports all and future stuff

I did the #glinfo:

video card: GeForce 6150SE/PCI/SSE2/3DNOW!

My OS ram is 2048MB

My Hard drive is 320GB with a dual core processor (AMD ATHLON 64X2)

 

Of course being completely computer illiterate, i have no idea what any of that means, just that the game runs very well, i have around 50-60 FPS, but it is a bit choppy at times. I'm not complaining, considering my old OS would not run it at all.

 

I turned off some stuff too, stuff like the fog, rain, shadows, reflections, they look cool, but I don't like to use them to save FPS. I too use the eye candy all the time, LOVE IT!!

 

That's my 2 cents worth :D

I have GF2mx and client says "Your graphic card supports the absolute minimum requirements"

 

But I have eye candy, blood and other special efects turned on, only shadows off and game works fine for me (25-30 fps @ 1024x768)

Yes, for the new version, the GF2 (and equivalent cards) will be the minimum supported hardware (in order to make the game engine better and faster).

Desktop gives me message #5.

Laptop gives me message #2.

 

I travel a lot, so my laptop gets about 40% of my EL time.
