Firestorm Citadel Sadness

Post  Elegies on Sat May 21, 2011 7:17 pm

So I opted to try out FSC for the first time today, having gotten pretty much everything (save my gun and bomb) up to 5*.

Sadly, I discovered that neither of my computers (inferior laptop, desktop with a decent DDR2 geforce from 2 years ago) can manage to run FSC, even with graphics on low, rendering disabled, etc. There's just too much going on at once graphically, and my framerates plummet to ~1-5, which got me killed several times.

Combined with the boredom of endless JK runs, I'm wondering what to do to keep the game interesting.

The sad part is that I was saving up to build a $1500 (american) machine that would destroy any game on the market, currently, but I've had to set that dream aside because of housing issues. Landlords suck, especially when they won't fix things after telling them for weeks that something needs to be fixed.

I doubt it. I mean, one thing they could do is give more customizability to the graphics settings--for instance, in JK palace there are random breezes that blow across the screen that can cause slowdown, on some maps the background has a moving mist that works similarly (I think on Dark City maps?) and then there's the interactive stuff, like flame patches in FSC, torches, etc. You don't need red swirlies to know that the flame patch is something you don't want to stand on Very Happy And let's not forget torch puppies...

But yeah, they seem to try to keep the game as simplistic as possible, and providing those options for graphics would be a sideshow. They really need to focus on getting new content out.
