edit, if high rez texture and tessellation strikes at the same time, im quitting my job. Lol

Another edit, my 5850 is under the recommend specs, yet i can run 2 clients on 2 monitors, @ 1920*1080 everything high. Unless this is about to change.

This is not about to change.



So no HD textures CryP

Will we start to see a benifit from sli or crossfire technology anytime soon? Also thanks for working to make eve shiny

The only thing that concerns me is the graphics card. I run EVE on a laptop and just don't have the money to buy a proper PC, and under "Graphics Devices" it says I have "Intel(R) HD Graphics". This is running EVE just fine at the moment, but will this change? Don't get me wrong, I'm not about to 'rage quit', but if my machine can't run it then I just simply can't play it. As an underpaid university student atm, buying any new hardware is simply not an option for at least another 12 months.
We are not planning now any changes that will make currently usable hardware unusable. We are setting a baseline for the future.


So, if you can fly it now, you can fly it after the requirements change, right? :)

Not that that simple explanation made it any easier for the short bus crowd last time around...

With the new laptops from Apple where you can't upgrade your hardware this doesn't make the future too bright for us :(
Unless you are talking Macbook Air (which meet very few of the recommended requirements anyway), all the new laptops from Apple which you can't upgrade already start at 8GB. You cannot get less RAM even if you wanted to.

Vender gives less than 30 days notice of hardware changes to customers. What kind of professional standard this? Wait a minute. Oh it's...., not mission critical. Nevermind.

Hay, it's better then a 48 hr notice of a old chip set change. ROFL!

Thanks for the notice. I'll tell my friends, and co-workers.

It's about freedom.

Simple Solution. Do not buy mac. " CASE : SOLVED "

Huh no. Thanks to the very few existing configurations, the drivers for every single piece of hardware on a Mac box are specific to the exact components in that box. So yes, there isn't a whole lot of flexibility on a Mac system, but the drivers are undoubtedly better tuned on a Mac than they are on a Windows box.


CCP is right on this one. You are probably right for every other driver in a Mac, but not for graphics. Even if there is only a few configurations to support, a GPU is probably the most complex chip you can find in a computer.
Windows drivers are better because there is hundreds of workers paid by the companies that create GPUs to fine-tune performance for the most known apps out there. This is not easy and it doesn't seem to be done for Mac.

Lose Windows XP support, for great justice! Roll
Windows XP is still used by a significant portion of EVE players and I would expect it to possibly take up to two years still for them all to upgrade based on current trends.

I just want to say to all at CCP Thank you!! Thank you for updating things and thank you for your continually making this game better. I can't wait to see what is in store for the future!

It would be nice to see actual damage to ship's hulls, the effects of what a shield looks like reppeling an opponents weapon's volley all in real time, or a more detailed wreck that accurately depicts a shadow of what that wreck once was ( nike capitol ships do currently) .............................Perhaps in the future we will get there However, In the mean time thanks for getting us one step closer!

By the time we dump the terrible XP DirectX 9 and get to DirectX 11 we will have walking in stations....I believe I have been waiting since 2006..By that time ive been playing for 2 years...sigh..I still wait...I am a patient man..DirectX10 by 2020 or bust.

Does this mean DX11 might be coming? I remember CCP did a demo on DX11 a while back.

I know. But the "or more" scares me.
And i have an rMBP base model with 8Gb which goes to 100C every time i run EVE so, it probably it will die in flames :)

No final decision either way has been made regarding HD textures.

I can see no discernible difference in graphics quality since 2007. Yet your garbage programming skills have filled the game with so much junk it now requires a supercomputer to play. Instead of upping the hardware requirements and pushing the costs onto the user-base you should send your programmers on a remedial course.

Start by getting rid of that crappy green fog.

I can use mine to iron shirts while it's running EVE. :P

Gonna need to update the OS to keep doing that, though (still running 10.5.8). Have been using it as a "I'm traveling, need to update skills" machine for the last few years!

Regardless of the number of people this will affect, a two to three week advance warning is ridiculous. This is the kind of thing you should give several months lead time. It doesn't mean don't do it, but it does mean give adequate advanced notice so that people can prepare. Buying a new machine or getting involved in upgrades takes at least that long for the non-computer-expert types who play this game.

Considering the lead time you give for ship rebalancing, it's amazing that you wouldn't do it for the machine on which those newly balanced ships are played. This is one of those "someone made a decision somewhere without really talking to everyone" type situations. (and if you're tempted to reply, well we decided X months ago, my reply is, so why didn't you tell anyone?)
