The MOD plays! #1: Installation, display settings, and dial-up

When installing the game you will be asked twice whether you want to verify the files. The first time is when you are about to install; the installer will prompt you if you want to verify the integrity of the installation files. The second time is after the installation is done, when the installer prompts you if you want to verify the installed files. If you, like me, prefer to verify file integrity then the only drawback is that installation can take around 45 minutes on a Pentium 4 2.4 GHz, 512 Mb RAM computer. If you’re ok just going ahead and installing without verification, it will take about 15 minutes tops.

After several days of waiting to be allowed external access to the internal test server I finally got to log in. My video card is a NVIDIA GeForce 6600 (256 Mb) and I set the display settings as follows:

For the inquiring minds out there, this level of detail already exceeds that of what I get when I log into RF Online.

Just like GM NocturnalSun has posted, the game works fine on dial-up. I am testing this with a Bl@st card and a Bayan-Tel line. I will be able to tell you more about performance once I encounter a denser population in-game. So far the performance is comparable to when I log into the RFO-Ph Omicron server even at peak times.

sorry if this would be a comparison, but will the loading in/out of the game be longer/shorter than Flyff? I’ve had my experiences with Flyff, and i kinda hate the loading.

Easily answered; loading is much shorter in comparison.

Logging out sometimes causes a long delay though, but it’s not a common occurence.

Now I’m starting to consider finding a 6600 AGP card. Sayang, kung naka FRAPS lang po kayo sana I would have asked about the framerate under those settings.

Will foreign IPs be blocked? I really need to know about that… I’m from brazil and i need to know that…

And to those who are scaried about the game performance, the game runs really smoothly on my computer, with highest graphics configuration (all maxed, and screen resolution at 1280x800x32) on malaysian server, even inside cities where there are lots of people…. My computer specs is the following:

AMD Semprom 2800+ 1.6ghz
512mb RAM
ASUS 256MB chipset Geforce 7600GS

I guess that’s all… i’m waiting for an answer…

Pano po un mukhang mabagal sakin yan ah geforce Fx 5500 lang gamit ko
I see that using a 6600 mid settings could be good
But using a lower end card such as mind mukhang kahit low settings lag or choppy ingame?

Yung nasa screenshot po ba hanggang diyan lang makakaya ng system niyo? Pede pa ba yan isagad ng di pababagalin yung frame rate ng laro?

@gabs:
i’m using fx5500 256MB you can play in highest resolution and texture quality with some effects turned on, without sacrificing performance. the only major problem i’m having is with the terrain detail.

@ levin3d

I will see if I can get permission to post those screenshots, but currently the UI is kinda cramped from the English translation from the original Chinese.

@ Paul Renzo

I can run FRAPS on my machine fine. I was an RFO-Ph Vanguard, remember?

@ HectorL

Closed Beta is for the Philippines only. No official word as to whether it will be opened to foreign IPs in the future.

@ Gabs

You might have to set your graphics to low to avoid graphics lag.
