Re: Carmegeddon Reincarnation

I've got it, Josh and I were kickstarter backers for it, but sadly my old C2D isn't up to it in this early release. I get about 3fps.

Hopefully it'll be ok once it's been optimised.

Re: Carmegeddon Reincarnation

More screenshots, still getting shitty FPS though anyone else having issues? Everything off I get 20 - 25FPS, everything on 15 - 20 FPS

Looks good though, certainly improving as they go on, FPS issues will probably be one of the last things to sort once the game is finished and the optimisations begin.

Re: Carmegeddon Reincarnation

Last time I played it (before Update 2), was getting around 20-25 with everything maxed out.

Had intended waiting for it to hit beta, wouldn't expect performance to improve much until then, but after looking over the release notes for Update 2-3 might load it up and run over some peds.

I really like where they're going with it, feels like the original game.

Re: Carmegeddon Reincarnation

Yea defiantly, some of the maps are pretty much straight remakes with new bits added on which I am happy with, Though I couldn't see the American Football stadium in the city one which was a shame

Love the mini cop cars , the big ones look impressive when coming at you all lights flashing

Re: Carmegeddon Reincarnation

A small upgrade later I can actually play it now. Josh was given a 7850 for his birthday so kindly donated his 6850 to me.

Loving it so far. They've got the atmosphere of the old one down to a tee. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I think the opponents cars perhaps shouldn't be quite so easy to permanantly disable though. Once you've torn off their front wheels they can't do a lot to defend themselves or avoid you.

The handling of the cars feels very much like Carmageddon 2 rather than the original. A good thing in my opinion. The first one was a bit too slidy for me, a fault carried on to the Android version. I stopped playing that after about half an hour.

I'm looking forward to wheel support. It's in the menu but not implemented yet. That will be good.

Re: Carmegeddon Reincarnation

I got Carmageddon 2 from Gog during their last sale (not this recent one) and it's really got me in the mood for this. Sadly I can't justify spending 20 on it as it currently stands... I meet the minimum specs just barely after my RAM upgrade. So I'll just stare at these screens and wish and hope... Although Carmageddon 2 is really fun. Never played it originally - I only had a P100 and my mate had a P133 - neither were powerful enough to get past the first lamp post. Mine wasn't powerful enough to get past the opening cutscene...

Why is Carmageddon always the limits of my PC power...?

Re: Carmegeddon Reincarnation

I literally added 4gb of ram this weekend... It doesn't suck enough to warrant getting a new PC yet. And I've been reading about overclocking in regards to my specific hardware. I'll be ready for release.

Re: Carmegeddon Reincarnation

Well I finally got a copy in return for some dirty favours. Played it late last year and it was terrible - took absolute ages to load, stuttering, etc...

But I went back to it today with the settings RIGHT down. I mean, barrels and barriers pop up when I'm driving on them... But I had fun! Still took ages to load...

Got some screenies of my more fabulous smash-without-being-wasted, as well as a couple Emsey shouldn't see...

Re: Carmegeddon Reincarnation

So, who's played the pubic beta? With the settings changed, it runs a little better on low whilst allowing me to see barriers and barrels, BEFORE I hit them. Though it serves me right - the minimum is 1GB graphics and with one of my 512mb SLI cards out, I'm only running 512mb.

Still, it's much faster to load, and having a proper campaign mode is great.
