Screen shot from the end of the program that tells me how good my computer is at running FFXIV. I blackened out my score cause I don't want to be judged on how crappy my computer is. However, the game (according to my score) should run really smoothly if i turn off all the shadows... and down the detail on the grass. That is A LOT better then what i usually have to do!
what was your score if i may ask
after all the tweeking to the graphics settings and such? right at 5k
thats not too bad really. could be worse
Tust me on most games that i play I have to turn the graphics to the absolute minimum to get the same FPS
really? ff14 seemed like it was going to be pretty graphic intensive, but hey, if you can play it smooth with some stuff turned up, then cool
Yea the game is absolutely Beautiful! and it doesn't take a ton of resources to make it run that way ether! All i had to do was turn character shadows off, drop environment shadows to medium, drop grass settings to medium, and turn distant models to low rez. Everything else is maxed, even the real time reflections.
