  1. So great that your 5 year old is getting his first experience with PC gaming! I was about that age when my brothers and I inherited my grandpa's TRS-80. Our first games were loaded from a cassette tape! XD Sounds like you are giving Grandad's old PC to your son? I suspect that his PC is a prefab, not custom build? Do you know the age, manufacturer and model? Above all, we will need to know whether or not the computer needs to be or can be upgraded to support the game. Most older people have minimum specs on their machines. Unless Papa is a gamer and your boy is inheriting the elder statesman's aging "Beast Rig" you may have some issues upgrading to play newer versions of 7DTD. This is the offiical minimum and recommended specs from the support page: Minimum OS: Windows 7 or Higher (64-bit) Processor: 2.4 Ghz Dual Core Cpu Memory: 8 GB RAM Graphics: 1 GB Dedicated Memory Direct X: Version 10 Network: Broadband internet connection Hard Drive: 12 GB available space Sound Card: Direct X compatible Recommended OS: Windows 7 or Higher (64-bit) Processor: 3.0 Ghz Quad Core CPU or faster Memory: 12 GB RAM Graphics: 2 GB Dedicated Memory Direct X: Version 10 Network: Broadband internet connection Hard Drive: 12 GB available space Sound Card: Direct X compatible Most important specs to pay attention to are Processor (speed), Memory and Graphics. Based on my experience you should do okay right now with the Official Recommended specs aside from graphics. For that I would recommend something that has at least 4gb of VRAM (as opposed to the 2GB officially recommended) and you can go up to 8gb on a budget: Radeon 570 Good luck and have fun with the upgrades!
  2. I got some settings dialed in and my frames are stable above 45fps. Worst areas are views with long draw distance like desert mountains on the horizon. No noticeable drops yet with animations or POIs. In town, I'm good around 55 to 60fps Texture Streaming - Off Texture Quality - Half (From Full) Reflected Shadows - Off SS Reflections - Off These were the changes that made the biggest difference for me
  3. My 6700K, 980ti box cannot get more than 20fps using same settings as I had in A17. With Geforce Optimized settings I do not get above 45fps. I am on a 34" ultrawide. Never had any issues like this in previous alphas. Reducing resolution fixes problem. With vsync disabled at 1920x1080 I can get 110+ fps. Anyone else experiencing the same on machines that are slightly older?
