Err ... try turning down some of the options under game like length of smoke trails and stuff. Gonna put in more of those. It doesn't hurt the look but it should really affect how many objects the CPU has to handle.It runs on my ancient desktop pretty well.That's Athlon 64 3200+ (although I gave it a slight overclock) and it had an old 9800xt radeon. That was all hi-spec in early 2004 but things moved really quickly after that. The 9800xt is really feeble by today's standards. I found an HD 4670 with the old AGP socket and plugged that in and gave the 9800 to a friend whose 9600 blew out. I don't think it makes much difference. As long as there's 3d acceleration there... it should be enough.I wonder if this robot is too Gundam and not enough Star Fleet ... but we never saw an Alliance Robot to gauge what direction the creators would have gone in.My previous ones were more organic-like but this is more blocky and gundamy. Infact it hasn't gone terribly accordingly with my drawings. Might try and fix that for the next one.You should see its gun - that really does look awesome. Will update again once I have a bit more progress.I'm a bit stuck on the colours too. I like the blue-yellow chest and the purple hands but ... I think for the body red purple and grey should be the colours.This Dell is lovely. It's like a poor, reliable cousin to the Alienwares. They gave me Win7 64 ultimate for free installed on it. It's in good condition but I think its previous owner was a bit aggressive with his esc key. I might order a replacement keyboard off of ebay if it gets troublesome. I hope it keeps up the good work.You should see how it runs Crysis. It was gobsmacking even before I found out how to turn on its second graphics card.It's a little bigger than my old one but it's faster, quieter and really pretty.I found what looked like a sim-card slot under the battery housing and that must be what it's for - mobile internet without wifi. Random. I find it's cheaper to borrow peoples' wifi without them knowing.We had a guy and Uni living with us... we hacked this neighbours router and got on and he, well, he went a step further. He hacked the router admin panel, unlocked all the ports for bittorrent and absolutely hammered that connection for all it was worth. He was pretty cool actually for an Irishman.Whoever actually owned that router was not getting the speed of service he was paying for.
Dream big and bold and daring.
