My Radeon 6850 died and I'm back on my very weak Intel GM4500. What experience have people with the beta have people had with very low end integrated graphics?

About an hour into the beta, and WOW. Thanks Obsidian, not only does it look amazing but the world is fantastic.

Keep up the great work!

If you give kickstarter page a read you will see the lower backer amounts don't include beta. You do have the option though of doing a add on of 25$ if you would like to play the beta.


 

 

I see that now... I just had forgotten about the exact terms (It's been almost 2 years, after all!) and got excited about the possibility of finally playing around with an early version of the game.

 

Hey, you can have my beta key if you want. I don't have time to play it right now, anyway, so I can wait until the full game arrives in the box :)
PM coming your way right about now.

 

Wow, that's very generous of you. Installing now :D

 

Thanks a lot!

Thank you! I've played it for five hours so far, in one sitting, and overall it's a feast for sore eyes and ears! I absolutely love it! :yes:

 IIRC, the beta was included if you donated 165$ or more, but perhaps I'm wrong.

I'm using the Nvidia GEForce 540m, which is a pretty average graphics card*, and it's not so bad.

 

A little sluggish feeling, but it doesn't look like it's dropping frames, stuttering or otherwise having problems.

 

 

 

*For the sake of giving a baseline...it can run vanilla Skyrim on High without any problems, but it cannot run AC4: Black Flag or Titanfall without significant issues.

Nope. they say:

 

If you have purchased the Backer Beta or if it is included in your Kickstarter tier (all tiers of $110.00 or above) 

 

110$ or more. I backed 140 and no get my product!

Too poor to have a beta key myself but I gotta say, you guys did an amazing job from what I've seen so far. I could watch videos of the character creation alone for hours ... wait, I probably have. So much variety, customization options and depth. I'm deeply impressed.

I'll be Digging in soon. I'll let you know what I Uncover. Get it... archaeology!

 

This may be a silly question so let me preface it. I know the backer portal is ending soon. Has any of the backed money after the original campaign ended gone toward the 4 mil stretch goal? Also, does the 40K likes thing still apply for one more level in The Endless Paths? Even if it has to be released late I'd like that to still be viable as we're only >300 likes away.

 

I shouldn't answer this because of the bad puns. :getlost:

 

We haven't been tracking additional money as it applies to stretch goals. We did toy with reintroducing stretch goals months ago, but ultimately decided against it. That doesn't mean that we haven't been making the game better with the extra money (we have), but it isn't something that was stretch goal related.

 

Also, EPoON is completely locked down for Eternity. We could always add another few levels for an expansion, but I wouldn't count on it. Many more cool areas to explore in the setting.

Hey, Ilmarius. I just checked and it seems like your beta key has been generated. Let me know on a PM if you still aren't able to access your beta and I will help.

Hey, michkord. I just checked your account and it seems like your key was activated. If you still aren't able to access the beta, send me a PM and I will help you through it.
