Kinda useless since you have to use the same PC to do it.
It's a pain, but I have my sisters PC in Alberta authorized for when I'm out there, and my home PC as well. But I'll be heading out there in a month or two, and with any luck I'll be able to see when I'm back on the east coast if it still works. I'm guessing it will, without too much of a problem.

Calling EVGA tech is damn painless. I had a brand new 560ti die on me right from the store, they gave me an RMA number and a phone number. Told me to go back to the store for an exchange, and have the reseller call the number. It was an authorization on EVGA's behalf to jump the card up from a stock 560ti to their 560ti superclocked with backplate. Roughly an extra $50 on the card.

But before you go calling EVGA, pull and reseat the card. I've run across a few times where even bumping the card while seated will cause poor contact with the card and the PCI-E slot. But 500/501 errors can mean a whole lot of nothing. Or a whole lot of something, thats the real problem with them.

Angry Joe's review of the game featured some absolutely hilarious goofs from the AI in this game. I think my favorite was the soldiers climbing the siege tower, then jumping off beside the wall, rather than going ON the wall.

It's getting to be ridiculous that every Total War game just has absolutely terrible AI like that, despite their promise (every single time) that they've put more people and more time into the AI than ever before.
If that's showing up early, then that's better than what normally happens. Usually the AI gets to a "okay" state, then something stupid happens and they break it. My personal favorite was during the seige's in Shogun2, where walls were missing on cliff based buildings. And your entire army could climb a sheer wall.

But beside that, I haven't run across anything that would make me go "meh" over the game. Though in the last week I've only added an extra hour of playtime.

I personally prefer using bluescreenview. Though I have run across this error before, especially with ram and random BSOD's before, it ended up being the voltage for the new ram being too low and had to be bumped up from 1.8v to 1.9v.

The problem of course is making sure that the non-paired stick can take the extra voltage.

Sadly that bench isn't indicative of real performance.. start a custom battle Believe me, I tuned my settings so that it stays above 50fps at the back end of the benchmark and had extreme FPS drops in certain situations (Solved by turning grass entirely off = low) and shadows to medium.
Got any preference for one, or one you'd like to link? I'll re-run the benches tomorrow and post them. But yeah grass to low and shadows down to high or medium make a huge difference, but shadows no matter the game have always been a massive hardware choke for well all videocards.

Bench via the beta channel for ROME 2. Not sure if it's the same promised patch for monday but here it is. Also running a 7950 now instead of my 560ti which decided to melt it self into a pile of radioactive goo--and I didn't feel like waiting a week for EVGA to send me a replacement.

Settings
benchmark

I should toss in, in general I'm seeing a 7-8fps jump but I'd hazard a part of it is the newer card. Have to wait for sure until my 560ti is back, which will sadly be relegated to a physx card.

i was just about to buy this. should i hold off?
It has issues like any TW game, but it's fun. If you got it as a pre-purchase+coupon discount and refund from a place like GMG, then it's by far worth it. Otherwise wait a couple of months for it to drop a bit. Really I'm enjoying it more than Shogun 2 or even Civ5. But I see the review bombing has begun, simply to review bomb.

Shogun2 had that same problem, and medieval 2. Seemed like it's optimized for localish networks, but anything else it bogged down. They did get it fixed in the first couple of patches.

So it sounds like the game is a bit of a pig to run and you really need a pretty decent rig to do it justice.
I've got a fx-6350 and 560ti. These are the benchmarks on high/extreme. I still haven't tweaked everything though.

Big thing that I've found is water and shadows soak frames, and lots of units. Shogun2 had the same problem with units, especially unit cards.

Ps.: NWN is still nice to play even now.... and so is BG2. Although I wouldn't play BG2 without some "ease of use" mods anymore... like removing locked chests and traps, everything Identified, stackable stuff... more carry weight, etc.
Ahh we're spoiled now. Makes me wonder how PE or PS:N are going to fair in some peoples minds if they have those in them.

Not sure I'm wild about that...

Neither am I. Seems to be an easy way to simply circumvent the ability to examine the officers testimony.

Can you play solo in this game if you want?
That's what I'm curious on.

Also GMG keys for Rome II went out 15mins ago, and preloads are now live.

Only the 4th biggest launch of the year? A shame, it deserves even better than that. As far as gameplay is concerned it's the best game of the year (at least thus far).
The gameplay is great, makes me think: Matrix, with all the fun that's possible.

That CNBC article is actually pretty funny. I'm pretty sure that guys are simply unwilling to go out on dates, especially considering the possible ass rape that the courts hand to guys, relating with and to do on any topic, or part of any relationship--especially kids, and separations.

But even IF MS patched it, I doubt HWbot will ever let Win8 back on, because how do you verify that someone installed the patch?
That's easy, by forcing the benchmark program to read the SHA-1 hash of the updated file to see if it's fixed or not. It's already done with video drivers.
