What system do I need to run this ?!?

PLS PUT SYS REQ. ON THE FRONT PAGE!!!

I won't be buying this unless I am sure my rig can take it!


I don't think they know what the system requirements are going to be until they finish optimizing, which tends to be towards the end of development.

Why did they do it? it would be much more pleasant if all the devices were interactive and you would have to twist your head to look at them. Most likely piranhas were too lazy or very hard to make such an interface for all robots. That made it all the same type. Well, doesn't such an interface look more pleasant?

The HUD display on your visor/helm is a wonderful thing to have in combat. You don't have to take your eyes off target to be able to see and understand information displayed in front of you no matter where you're looking. Look at the F-22 and F-35 pilot helmets.

It's not the same for everybody. I think it was necessary to make the helmet interface switchable in the menu. For me, this is the reason not to buy MW5

One does not simply purchase a package.... because the xsolla interface REFUSES to function as it should. FFS IF and I mean if I can get it to load it doesn't complete a transaction no matter what device I use. Seriously PGI, is there not another more reliable platform that you could be using to complete these transactions?


Same here

Will it matter what version friends have in order to play coop with one another?

It should work that way.

Will the version matter for playing coop with friends when the game releases?

This is among the stuff I plan on trying to fix once it comes out. I prefer a minimal HUD and functional screens. Those of Battletech are described as giving very basic information, with main screen and auxiliary screen(s) having most of the information.

Which preorder version?
No.

If one is more updated than another, say you have the latest updates and someone else hasn't updated since a year after launch... yes.

Why is it so difficult to answer one question...

I've asked the same question three times in this forum and received no answer. In addition, I've tweeted @russ_bullock directly and received no answer...

Ok, I just wanted to make sure there wouldn't be some version compatibility problem between players before investing into this.
Example: Player 1 has community edition but player 2 only has standard. Both players can't coop with one another because they have different editions of the game.

Thank you.

No problem. For most games, the standard/deluxe versions don't really have any compatibility issues unless one includes maps that another doesn't (in which case a "DLC" tends to have said map that Deluxe guy got for free).

Here, the differences between them are on MWO for the most part, which has little to nothing to do with the actual game. :)

They mentioned in the description that the beta will feature an instant action mode that is playable by community edition owners only. I just wanted to make sure that the campaign in general wouldn't be affected and would be coop playable regardless. Thanks.

Have you played Battlefield or Call of Duty?
The reason I ask is think of it like those. The beta's only accessible under whatever conditions, but it has no effect on anyone that bought the game once it is "released", whether they preordered or not, just like most (if not all) games since 2000 plus. (I know some old playstation one games using the link cable and portable games, a Director's cut versus the original would not be compatible, but such isn't the case here.)

Yeah, Russ needs a PR consultant.

He looks like he pulled too many all nighters. Poor guy. He would also stay up late to do NGNG podcasts and people would rag on him for not communicating even though he answered their questions on a recorded stream the night before. I know everyone is hot to attack their favorite developer, but people need to relax a bit.

True, I can empathize with Russ and PGI because they get pulled in every direction by a player base that is as divided in opinion as the US government.

And now up to 329 mechs out of 340. (previously 300 bays and 299 mechs). Snagged a bunch of heroes. Sadly this means I didn't have any left over for patterns as I had hoped... hard to believe there's that many heroes I didn't own yet.

In general, I thought and decided that you should not spend money on pre-order. Judging by MWO5, this is an unfinished game with a bunch of shortcomings. The support service ignores all complaints. Bugs and glitches tozh many. Today, the desire to buy something that played a couple of matches without one murder at all has spoiled everyone, the party members have selected them. And now imagine: you have spent money, you want to enjoy a team game, and in a team half of the players who do not understand what is happening at all and periodically shoot at everything that moves, including you.In addition, I did not understand the fun with the rockets when they flew through the house and damaged my armor. In general, it is better to wait for a working finished product. In addition, it is not known which product they will abandon earlier.
