I've been looking for mods for this game, I saw some awesome trailers for upcoming fanmade storymodes using the engine and such. But are there any good mods like that out already? Cause it seems they are all still work in progress.

Other than that, are there maybe any mods that tweak your strength/speed/powers/etc? I don't want to be invincible, but it would be cool if there was a mod that could make you throw and kick objects much further, jump higher, have more energy, etc. Making the game a bit more unrealistic, but still challenging.

And as for those who claim that the sniping is done awesomelly; fancy looking kill cams is not what real-life sniping is all about you silly kids. The sniping in this game looks chilidsh and nothing close to the real thing with for example a Arisaka Type 99, Walther Gewehr 43, Springfield M1903, etc during WWII

I agree that the game is avarage and deserves avarage scores. I still really like the sniping though (which is not enough stay entertained for very long). I don't care about realism, I just care about how much fun it is. I prefer fancy looking kill cams, if I wanted real-life sniping, I would try real-life sniping. I want games that are fun to play.

I'm about 4 hours in and the review is fair. The sniping is done awesomely and feels very satisfying. The other weapons handle pretty crappy which is caused by lack of polish. The AI is incredibly stupid as well. Animations are avarage and one of the worst parts for me is the sounds. The german voice-acting sounds unnatural and it's bloody annoying to hear the same lines repeated over and over again. There's a lot of recycled sounds in this game.

It's an avarage game with a lot of potential.

[QUOTE="killa169"] Have you got ubersampling on?C_Rule

Nope, definitely not.

[QUOTE="killa169"]

Asus X5QS, 15'6 inch screen with a 1920:1080 resolution although I put games on 1366:768... Intel Core i7, Nvidia Geforce 555M (2GB) and 6GB of RAM. Drivers updated.

Was using this laptop to play Warhammer: Spacemarine and it ran perfectly. Absolute highest settings, ran extremely smooth, didn't check but I wouldn't doubt it being 60fps.

Now I'm trying The Witcher 2 (patch 2.0 installed). And putting it on either high or medium it does't run that smoothly. Some hick-ups just when running around while moving the camera (just playing the tuturial, haven't tried anything else). Playing it on low is decent, but even then I doubt i'm hitting 60fps. So is this normal? I'd expect to be able to run this thing at least on normal settings. I've googled and have found multiple people with this graphicscard have problems with this game. Yet have also seen someone claim he's able to run this game on high with the framerate smooth as butter.

Any idea what settings I should be able to run (smoothly)? Any ideas to get this thing on medium to high settings? Is there maybe something I should be changing in the NVIDIA Controlpanel to achieve better performance in games without sacrificing graphics all that much?.

Just weird since in my opinion Warhammer looks better, there's tons of units with actually somewhat impressive AI, all kinds of special effects going on and it runs great. I understand it's totally different engines and all that, but it feels wrong to me.

Thanks.

whyd you get a $2000 laptop when you couldve gotten a $1500 desktop that wouldve maxed out witcher 2 no problem

It was on a discount for about 850 euro's. I needed it for school, just so happens I'd like to play games on there too, just not my priority. So unfortunetely a desktop is out of the question, was also unable to buy any laptop more expensive than this one.

Hmm damn that's what I was scared for. Guess I'll end up getting it for the xbox 360.

Hi guys,

Not too long ago I got Warhammer: Spacemarines. My laptop was able to run it on high settings with maybe a few hickups in the framerate but nothing to get in the way of gameplay. Anyways for some reason the sound was terrible, stutterring all the time. So after updating drivers, trying all kinds of solutions, giving up and going back to trying things out. I ended up putting the priority of the game to high in windows task manager. All of a sudden the sound stutter was gone and even those small frame-rate hick-ups were completely gone. Game running smooth as butter.

But windows does warn you about imablancing the system or whatever. I've googled and get very mixed results on whether it can be dangerous to my laptop or not. I'd only do this for games of course, not any windows applications or whatever. So are there any negative results? Maybe even just bigger chance at overheating my laptop or something? I'd very much like to know, same for putting it on realtime.

Thanks.

Hey guys. Got an Asus X5QS, 15'6 inch screen with a 1920:1080 resolution although I guess it doesn't make much of a difference setting games at 1366:768... Anyways uhm where was I, Intel Core i7, Nvidia Geforce 555M (2GB) and 6GB of RAM.

I'm quite the specs noob, but what I'm trying to find out is exactly what this thing can handle. Read somewhere it can run Battlefield 3 on high settings which I am very much doubting since this is a laptop we're talking about.. So how does this thing compare to consoles like a 360 and the ps3 (considering it should run just as smooth as those consoles). If you happen to know how it would do with BF3, ME2, GTAIV, Batman: AA/AC, Assassins Creed 2/brotherhood/revelations, all that would help. Tried canyourunit.com but it isn't of much use since optimus is getting in the way.

Also I have not overclocked, I'm rather scared to overheat and mess up the graphics card.

Thanks a lot!

gta IV, both batmans, mass effect 2, and all the assassin's creeds will run well on high or better.

bf3 probably on medium

a console (omitting the xbox 360's bf3 texture pack) plays bf3 on low settings so youve got a one up on them in msot ways and even after you consider the 360's texture pack its still fairly different.

all the other games on that list visually are ALOT better than those on the consoles (though gta IV will be the most subtle of those listed)

you can basically play any recent game on medium or high will msot console games are played on medium or low

Oh wow, I heavily underestimated this thing, I figured even the most expensive of laptops couldn't top a console, let alone this medium-priced one. Thanks a lot for your quick reply, Sounds clear to me. Will be getting BF3 on the 360 regardless, but I took it by example. Batman: Arkham City I will give a try though when that drops for the pc.

Thanks again.
