I was hoping to be able to buy myself parts and build a new computer when I Kickstarted the game, however life has had other things in mind. So I'm going to try to play on my 3 year old laptop. Do you think I will be able to run it ok via Steam with these specs?

Intel HD Graphics 3000

I'm not sure how that compares to the ATI Radeon HD 4850 or NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT listed in the min. specs - it's better than some onboard video of the past but still not super great. I've seen some play other Unity early access games with HD 4000, but not sure how those games compare to whatever PoE is doing with it. At any rate, I'd bet it'll at least run at low graphic settings and all that.

I think the GeForce 9600 is a very small step up from the HD 3000 so you should be fine running things on low.

Thanks for the replies everyone!

 

I had a rough time trying to start Wasteland 2 when it came out but that was before all the patches and I haven't gone back to it to try again, so I was a bit worried with PoE. Really wish I had $$$ to upgrade to a new computer, but other things have way more priority than games (all good things, of course)!

 

Happy RPGing to you all!

The game doesn't yet offer a way to turn off anti-aliasing in game

 

It does!

 

BMac implemented a console command that controls anti-aliasing. To use it, bring up the console and type

 

msaa X

 

 

where X is any number from 0 to 16.

 

:)

Oh good ol' BMac :) Well hopefully we'll get that switched over to the GUI side soon too for you guys, but that's good to know - thanks!
