All alpha invites sent out now.

I have 4 alpha invites.
PM me with your e-mail address, will check again in an hour or so.

Same connecting to server issue.

Is explorer enrollment the 50$ month 2 EE thing? I can never remember the titles for the things :p

Mine reads:
Reward Quantity
Ticket: Alpha Access 1
Extra Alpha Access 4
Open Enrollment 1

I thought the 50$ Month 2 EE thing I paid for would be called Early Entry Month 2 or something rather than Open Enrollment?

Seems like someone didn't get back to me on a previous alpha invite 3 days ago, so PM me an e-mail address, first is fair.

Here are the other two spec threads:

Alright, my most recent set are gone.

I just got 2 more invites after giving out the first 2 (odd?) so send me a PM if you'd like an invite. First is fair.

Yeah, if some moderator wanted to do a thread merge, I'd be impressed and pleased, but I hit all of them to make sure people noticed.

I'm also glad to see them holding off a bit on full release, and am generally a fan of later releases over all. The game I played thus far has a lot of places where I'd reasonably expect any but particularly dedicated fans to walk away.

Is it possible to get clickable tooltips that would link to the city and nations recruiting threads/info websites? That'd be crazily useful.

Thank you, Caldeathe!

Alright, so I checked it on my LenovoX60, refurbished. This is a 2006 laptop that I purchased 4 years ago in 2010 for 150$. I know it got a RAM upgrade

Processor: Intel Core Duo T7200 @ 2.00 GHz
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate
Hard Drive: Unknown 120GB 5400RPM[probably] SATA
RAM: 2.00 GB DDR2[Probably] SDRAM (667MHz)
Screen Size: 12.1″
Screen Resolution: XGA 1024 x 768 (can output resolution of up to 2048 x 1536 via monitor out)
Graphics: Intel Media Accelerator 950 (or whatever the refurbished chip defaulted to)

As you can see, it's a train wreck.

It loaded pathfinder online (taking 45 seconds). On character select, it refused to draw my character, making him a black blob.

Trying to log in produced a crash after about 2 minutes. Probably because I was attempting to log in using a potato.

Also, link to another systems discussion thread:

Thank you, Lam and Proxima Sin.

Interesting. Thank you for the information. Anyone know what skill I needed to make use of the colourful sparks? There seemed to be a lot of them.

And I heard someone say that healing and kiting with a bow on a cleric was great --- I trained minor healing 4 but can't figure out how to use it?

Some commentary from playing around for ~3 hours. I didn't have spreadsheets memorized or the UI guide memorized, but went in as a player that had read just a little bit.

1) Can we get so that the hover-over text in the gold and blue "roles" window turns green when we meet the pre-requisites, such that it is easy to see what we're missing?
2) Sometimes power and hit points and the really general feats would show up in my feat list, and sometimes they wouldn't.
3) I needed heavy armor 2 from the Dreadnaught to progress crusader to progress cleric. I couldn't figure out how to get this, as it didn't seem to be there.
4) I found some glowing blue something with a diamond resource note out in the wilderness but couldn't access it --- a collection of colourful sparks. Presumably I need some gathering skill, but it'd be nice if the game told me which one?
5) I bought tonnes and tonnes of spells from the seminary but seemed only able to use divine favour + Shield of faith. Maybe my lack of holy implement was an impedement?
6) Dying didn't seem to have any consequences pre-gear, which was useful for random exploration"?
7) I found the lack of Town Map for Sotterhill often troublesome.
8) As a Gearless and probably poorly feated 7th level cleric, if I got 4 bandit recruits, I could kill 2. If I got 2 normal bandits, I could kill one.
9) After dying once I failed to draw my club but still meleed, just without the animation.
10) There was a bandit camp comprised entirely of wolves, which was slightly amusing to see. It seems like bandits and wolves cooperate, but you think there'd be some bandits around.
11) Ogre's and bandits sit within line of sight of each other pretty calmly.
12) I got some random things (Lesser Tokens = basic consumables?) copper coins, tradeskill things and an apprentices wand. I only have a loose idea of what to do with each, so I think I probably need to read the game guides more.

That being said, 2 hours of play, only 1 crash. The wilderness is super dangerous as you get away from town, or maybe that's just me being terrible.

Thus far, it's pretty smooth and pretty interesting. I look forward to playing more and learning the game a little better.

The CPU cooler is because I live in a warmer hot area without air conditioning, and to have around if I ever want to try overclocking. And because the Hyper212Evo is cheap.

While we're at it, is there a spreadsheet somewhere of who trains what? I've been having trouble finding heavy armor 1, though I did only get an hour to look at it.

Also, NCIX will do the build for 25$ with this link

Their price matching is exceptionally good.

It runs Pathfinder online incredibly smoothly, but I only got to fiddle around in town for an hour or so. The 16gb of RAM is for a specific application.

But seriously, planning a desktop, getting NCIX to build it for 25$ is so easy/saves you so much over store-builts it's incredible.

I also have an old laptop I intend to test Pathfinder online on, but I suspect it won't run it.

Thank you StormHunter.

One of the first things I'll do is post my performance at my system specifications in the PC thread, since I want to set up a better index of performance versus systems specifications.

2014 hp Pavillion Touchsmart 23" AIO. AMD 8400 graphics, 6GB, i3 core.

Which I3? Some people are running on Intel HD3000-4000, which are in pretty similar range to an AMD Radeon 8400 --- but those people all have I5's (admittedly one of them an I5 650).

2 people marked this as a favorite.

Quoting Ryan:
The biggest issue that will affect your play of the game is the amount of memory on the video card. The more memory on the card, the more textures and objects the card can display at a faster frame rate.

1: Windows 7 Sony Vaio, 4GB Ram, dual 2.94 GHz CPUs, NVidia Geoforce G210M display adapter
2: Windows 7 Acer Aspire 4830T, 4GB Ram, quad 2.3 GHz CPUs, Intel Graphics 3000 display adapter. The Aspire has intel i5-2410m and the Vaio intel E7500.

Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1
System Manufacturer: Custom
Processor: AMD FX(tm)-4170 Quad-Core CPU @ 4.2GHz ("4" cores...), always overclocked to 4.63Ghz
Memory: 8192MB RAM
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (I need to update my drivers, badly!)
Dedicated Memory: 8GB
OS Drive: OCZ Vertex 4 120GB SSD
Game Drive: Crucial M4 240GB SSD (needs a firmware update, badly!)
(copy-pasted some of this from Dario - thanks!)

On "Fantastic" settings, my GTX 650 was only giving me about 25 FPS. I'm very glad that streaming didn't seem to change that, apparently because I have an i7 cpu, but would prefer a little more wiggle-room. I'm seriously contemplating getting my wife and me each a pair of GTX 760 cards and running them SLI.

On a single gtx760, the game runs quite nicely. I'll up the settings to fantastic in a bit and see what happens, but my guess is it will run just as smoothly.

OS - Windows 8.1
Processor - Intel Core i5-3230M CPU @ 2.6 ghz (4CPUs)
Memory - 6144 MB
Graphics - Intel HD Graphics 4000
Graphics Memory - 1792 MB
The graphics card is terrible for this Asus lappy, but I can run the game. In alpha now, I usually have around 15-35 FPS, it actually plays smoother the more battles I go into.

Windows 7 32-bits
Core i5 650 3.2GHz
Hd Radeon 4850 1GB
Monitor 1440x900
Running smooth on fastest setting, but having a good amount of crashes, if let alone in a corner do not crashes at all.

CPU: Basically everyone is using some I5 here, including some lower end ones. The exception is the single overclocked AMD FX4170.
RAM: A couple people are running with 4 GB's of RAM with some success.
GPU: People are running Pathfinder Online at lower settings on Integrated Intel HD 4000 Laptop GPU's. That's a pretty low power standard.

It seems like a good bet would be the level of Modest-Fair-Good on Logical Increments http://www.logicalincrements.com/ --- a 430$-600$ computer. But we're still on relatively few sources.
