    So I'm downloading this F2P game.

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/218230/

    Apparently it's an MMO.

    Kind of steep requirements..

    I tried lone-wolf'ing it.

    I guess I'll need to join some random team until I get my stats up.

    I'll admit, this game is actually pretty cool!

    Let me know what server and faction you join. I'll create another character. :)

    I'm not in any rush. :p

    It's nice that you can save up to three separate characters for free.

    The game is really active today, nothing like the other day.

    This game is kind of pretty. I changed the settings to high and most of the time I manage 60FPS, only occasionally it dips to 30, but it seems like it just happens when I cross boundaries so it's probably rendering that section of the map during that time. :)

    I need to join a squad.

    I installed this.

    But I had a Crash to desktop when I ran it.. I need to check some stuff to find out why

    Try verifying the game cache.
     
  12. Afronaught

    It's a fresh install.

    Perhaps I was running too many torrents in the background or something.

    Private_Ale King Neckbeard

    lol

    You're always torrenting something.

    I'm yet to actually get into this damn game :(

    Are your graphic drivers up to date?

    Also, seriously, try verifying the cache. Maybe something got borked in transit. :)

    Private_Ale King Neckbeard

    lols

    Apparently you get better FPS when you set the graphics to "Ultra".

    Which continent is that, Europe?

    Australia

    Let me verify the server for you this evening and I'll try get this game to stop CTD every time I enter the action.

    Try reducing the graphics to the lowest and if it doesn't crash keep increasing them until it does, then stick with the previous setting.
