I was going to wait for reviews/patches/planetary alignment/demo but I ended up buying the first copy I saw for sale. It's good, so far. Using 1.02, it's very stable and I've only seen a few bugs.
Cliffski, you're the developer of Democracy, right? I bought Democracy 2, good game
Your performance is well below what I'd expect.
I have what is probably considered a mid to mid-high range PC (C2D@3.3Ghz, 4GB, Geforce 260) and I'm running it at 1920x1200 (@ 100%) and generally high settings. It runs at about 40fps and is very consistent, the minimum I get is about 25fps but that's rare. Given how high a resolution that is, I think that's pretty decent. I have all post-processing disabled. I actually turned it off for the visual improvement (motion blur sucks) but it's typically expensive so that could be harming your framerate. Also, keep view distance low and the 3D resolution (fill rate) down a bit unless you can't stand aliasing.This comment was edited on Jun 22, 2009, 12:49.
