If you're a monthly subscriber ($6 month) theres some open slots at this moment. They'll probably last an hour or so, so hurry up if you want in or you'll have to wait until later in the week.

I'll add to this thread as more slots open. :action-sm

welp, I'm running a 7800 GT along with a AMD64 4000+, 2gigs of high end RAM and my rig is choking at low settings. Corrupted textures, no AA (AA is broken I think).

It's nearly unplayable for me. I'll defrag my drive tonight but I'm pretty sure that it won't do much. Bummer, the menus are great and the gameplay is there. If anyone manages to get it running with an uber rig (Mr. Cumia, where are you?) put up a post so I may enjoy it vicariously through you.

Sounds like I finally found something to play that MIGHT slow my rig down. My upgrade should be here by friday, but sadly no water cooling.

Athlon 64 X2 6000+ AM2
Asus AM2 Deluxe SLI Wireless Edition Motherboard
2x2GB Corsair Dominator XMS RAM
WD Raptor 10k RPM 74GB Hard Drive
My existing eVGA GeForce 8800GTX KO ACS3
And Im getting a third 500GB WD to build a 3 disk raid 5 array.

To those who didn't get in: Keep checking back a few times per day. They open the slots as they stabilize the the server loads from the last batch of testers. Just make sure you check out the system specs before you sign up as this game will beat the shit out of whatever you're using. I'm running a GeForce 7800GT 256mb and it not adequate. Something with more video memory (ie 512mb) should work.

You'll definitely get to play it at higher settings with DX10 enabled. As you said it WILL slow down your rig. I think in order to max out the settings you'd need at least an 8800 Ultra or a 8800GTS in SLi mode. The 4gigs of RAM will help enormously as well.

I played last night for a while. I have to run everything on low. I'm on a sub-par system. I'm enjoying it so far.

Damn, thats almost my old system, only I had a 3200 A64. Did you have the 1 meg of L2 cache too? I'm glad I upgraded to a core duo system.

I fucking love this game. I've logged quit a few hours so far. At first, I thought it was pretty good, but the more I play and the more I get the hang of it, I can't wait to fire it up again.

I give the beta a solid A grade.

I broke down Friday and ordered a Geforce 8800 GTS 640 mb. Getting sick of the slide show with shitty textures.

Also, in case anyone is interested, the Frontlines: Fuel of War beta is open. This is being made by the guys who did the Desert Combat mod for Battlefield 1 and did the prototyping of Battlefield 2 for EA. While it too runs like shit (uses Unreal 3 tech) the class system is much more elegant and flexible than Battlefields'. The engineer class gets to use drones. You can literally sit there for the entire game killing people with an RC chopper or ground bot.

fun fun.

I'm a consumer whore. I got a fileplanet membership just for this.

I'll grab the client when I get all the parts for my new quad core system at the end of the week.
