    On one set of hardware with what is probably very simplified netcode for in office play. You saw them play it, but did you ever see them install it on a random device? Maybe there's not even an installer at the moment, and it's all manual. Does it run in windows natively, or are they running it within a special developer engine? They could have put out the module they had, and the forum would be swallowed by angry rants about "this doesn't work on my [specific system], please fix" and then they'd be busy for months doing tech support on a silly teaser module.

    You've seen other companies release footage before that looked like it was pretty much done, and then announce that the game was coming out 1,5 years later. That should have been a hint that getting something to play in controlled environments is easy, getting it out to people is not :p

    Yeah, I see. Thanks for clarification here.

    Just speculating of course, but I'd say less than 20% of you would be able to play it at the level we have in-house.

    I mean, just having Windows 8 wouldn't allow you to play that old build.

    Well, Windows 8 does a lot of things to a person. About 50 things.

    Is that because the specs required are far beyond what you would need to run windows 8? Or because windows 8 is a horrible OS?
  6. because we didn't take time to make it work on win 8 yet ;) and yes ofc - optimizations are not a priority at this time, so our nice big beefy machines here are not really comparable to the ones of an average player ;)
    EDIT: also Win10 is around the corner and probably a lot better, especially because it will be free!

    50 shades of windows 8?
  8. Bashing Win8... took us quite long getting there.

    Thanks for replying and confirming my theories for how much work lies between "show in the studio" and "play at home". :p
