View Full Version : World of Warcraft (I have a one-week stress test
09-09-2004, 01:38 AM
World of Warcraft (I have a one-week stress test beta account) runs well enough on an M200. Turn the processor all the way up and every graphic detail all the way down for smoothness and the game runs just fine. The only thing I miss is the clipping distance of my gaming PC, Clara. Cecilia, my M200, can't do that well.
I posted some comics about my WoW experiences on Gamers Gone Bad:
Be sure to check out the index of archived comics here:
I know I said I'd never run something as nasty as a big 3d game on Cecilia, my M200, but after Hurricane Frances raped us down here in Florida, and Charley had his way with us shortly before that, I was left with one computer that could get on the Internet through - a phone line! The M200 and its V90 MODEM I sword I'd never use. Now Ivan is on his way - if he hits Florida, I think it will be the first time in over 100 years that Florida has been hit by three hurricanes in one season.

Yes, but add in 3 more people and the XP stays almost the same, and you can kill a lot faster. At first I had the same reaction, that grouping was stupid. The more I've played though, the better I've found group XP to be. Also, I'd say priests are probably one of the better solo classes atm, you shouldn't of given up :P I can solo things pretty quickly, but a good group still can blow the xp rate out of the water. Also, the best XP vs time is usually quests, and doing red con quests is a lot of XP.. but you won't be doing those solo :P
Anyways, I've played a little on my M200 and it's also run well enough (no overclocking or anything). Still a pretty game even with all the options turned down :) Wish they'd of enabled specular and pixelshaders for the stress test though. :(

Hi I play WOW on my M200 as well but I have all the graphics settings turned to the absolute HIGHEST except for resolution which I leave at 800x600. It runs at 20-25 fps outside and 50 fps inside.

Most gamers don't care much about average fps, but minimal ones (raise your hands those who have died more often to lag than to mephisto :). What's the worst case?

Since the 60s. Have you had lots of power trouble there? The news was talking about the possibility of Ivan causing places to be without power for a month.
We will keep all of Florida (except FSU and Miami) in our prayers.
(just kidding about the universities)

Ivan's a worry, and yes people are still without power from Frances that I know of, personally.
WoW is a lot of fun. Partying for quests is where it's at - finding people who can share the quest is hard. I posted a new strip on Friday.

Meh, I get 24-25fps in this game with EVERYTHING on low, no sound, no effects what so ever and running the game in windowed mode 800x600... And I even have 1500MB of RAM installed :/
But yeah I just reinstalled XP and so - have yet to install the latest video drivers from laptopvideo2go.com (site is down atm). Hopefully that'll change everything.

Lol, nope - made no difference at all. Disappointed!
Edit: No wait, it did help ^^ The place I was standing in as I logged on was just too crowded - out in the wild I get 34-40fps.

Not so yeah actually :P Still not playing with ANY effects and on the lowest possible resolution, though I did enable sound again and full screen mode.
