Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir Discussion

sssssoooooooo...

 

has been been 'bout a year since we upgraded our pc with anything save more ram. there just ain't been enough pc games released to make it an issue for Gromnir. is more an issue of sloth than frugality.

 

*shrug*

 

is hardware requirements for soz much higher than motb? motb ran pretty smooth on Gromnir's rig... but that were a goodly time ago. heck, most o' our underwear is newer than our pc. am willing to buy a new gpu to play soz, but that would cut into nap time or gym time or fo3 time.

 

anyone.

 

bueller?

 

HA! Good Fun!

Also, as it's a lower-level game than MotB, we probably won't be seeing as many swarms of high-level spell effects that tend to cause the biggest performance hits.

I found that MotB actually ran better on my system than NWN2 OC.

 

that was the case for Gromnir too... motb were much smoother. am simply curious if all the new features in soz came at a performance price.

It's sort of a mixed bag. We did quite a bit of optimization with Storm of Zehir, but at the same time there is a lot going on on those overland maps. We suggest a higher minimum specification and that should be reflected on the box and in the manual.

 

But! Once you get in and start playing, it's pretty cool. I can't wait to see how the modders and PW people use the overland map.

Thanks for the clarification.

 

Just out of interest: What are the minimum and the recommended requirements for the Storm of Zehir?

 

My current system is:

 

Pentium M 760 2GHz

2 GB RAM

ATI Mobility Radeon X700 with 128MB VRAM

100GB HDD

 

Will I be able to run it?

 

I am actually getting a new computer around the end of the week, which can run it for sure, but I left my install disks back in Slovakia, so I will have to make do with my old computer, where the games are already installed, until I return back to my country.

Bit late as news but just in case, Ztorm of Zehir designer blog update by Scott Everts at IGN and Interview with Obsidian at Thieves Guild.

 

As expected, Storm of Zehir seems to be more of Wasteland and classic Fallouts, which mix narrative and world simulation with some classic role-playing game factors such as by-the-book permanent death and customizable party rather than of Planescape:Torment and Mask of the Betrayer, which are heavily focused on narrative choices and story/character development. SoZ may be able to satisfy "geeky" needs which are not fulfilled by the of Fallout 3.

 

You may be interested in visiting the "official" board, too.

Anybody knows about the minimum and required specs yet?

Does anyone know how many companions we are going to have and which are those?
