So, let’s start with this as a necessary part of the game. As a poor academic, I haven’t found the money, nor the time to yet take to the computer legos, and build my own awesome PC. As a result of this, and my lethargy in attaining a new computer of any kind, I must take to the forums of every game, seeking the sage advice of others in manipulating games for better performance. My current laptop is pretty garbage, but it runs most games with high FPS with the lowest of the low settings. I mean, pong looks like Crysis when compared to anything my friend here can run. The problems of owning a toaster for a PC are multiplicituous.
Either way, my suggestion is to have as many options for graphics settings in the game as possible! Shadows? Who needs 'em. Resolutions anywhere north of 800x600? Aw hell no! We like it crisp and full of in-your-face pixelation.
I am planning on updating my computer here eventually (just don’t tell my friend here! Otherwise he’ll pull the bluescreen of death simply out of spite; he’s a jealous creature) in the coming year, but I’d still love to be able to get my hands on SH running over 15fps immediately!
@SteveAdamo or @Geoffers747, you guys got any idea as to what might be the capabilities for this in the early versions? Or if I will be able to tinker with the .ini file or something, without crippling the game.
