Specs required


#1

What computer requirements are needed to play ambience? I’ve not the best computer, or at least the one I use most frequently. I can barely run Overwatch on high, and I get 45 FPS. What specs are needed to run Ambience? (or expected to)


#2

The specs are not set yet, it’s still very early for this game. Although, I remember Dave saying (not sure where) that it’s not going to be too spec-hefty, because he has an older iMac.


#3

Keep in mind that if the game is still a few years off, your computer (and everyone’s) will be even older and slower. In addition, that time may provide you with a chance to get a newer computer. I realize that may be a bummer, but if you keep it in mind you may see some opportunities you would have otherwise missed.
Currently the best I have is Windows 10, and I’m hoping to keep this computer after the end of the school year but that’s not a certainty so I might have to buy a new one myself. So these are just things running through my mind that I thought I’d share. :slight_smile:


#4

Well, my PC is absolute trash, and if the game is as good as we all hope it will be, I most likely wont be able to play it :smile:
However, good question. I could have a new PC by then. As time goes on, more stuff will be added and removed from the game, so wouldnt the specs change?


#5

Maybe dave could try something some other games do for devices with poor performance.

Maybe he could have a setting where you could change the graphics from Low, Medium, and High quality.


#6

A few years…
I will have a mac and a steam in a few years

Maybe, just maybe I can get the 1.0 of this game


#7

I currently have this.


#8

Yep and I already knew that


Ambience on mobile?
#9

I know you know, I was telling it to other people.


#10

You will need windows 9 to run ambience


#11

#12

It’s sarcasm :confused:
Windows 9 doesn’t exist


#13

You have a 2000$ laptop. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000N4L4KI/ref=asc_df_B000N4L4KI5359365?tag=cnet-pc-20&smid=A183W8CNLFPZLY&linkCode=df0&creative=395105&creativeASIN=B000N4L4KI&ascsubtag=027c4750-0a0a-11e8-bffd-379f08198072

Its now only worth 125.


#14

Windows 10 is the latest windows software, so ehhh…


#15

Don’t forget the fall creators update.


#16

Eh, good point!


#17

and the Spring Creator’s Update that’s coming out soon xP.
As for my specs, hopefully they are good enough to run the game:
Intel Core i7-2600 (worries me the most)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070
16GB RAM


#18

As it looks, an i3 should be sufficient to run this game, if you even need that much. Your graphics card is probably overkill as well.


#19

I have a Intel Celeron 3060 with Intel HD 400 and 4 gig bytes of ram. You look far better than me.
