Can we please have the system requirements; minimum and recommended? I had hoped that info would come out with the release date. There is no mention of it on the new IL2-COD website (and no mention of the sim on Ubi$oft's webpage when I click the pre-order button)
**sigh**

Why all the huff over specs at this point?

1) You have a supercomputer and vid card now, so it'll not be an issue.
2) You are worried your comp will not handle the latest and greats game engine and graphics....in which case you may be right. But knowing it today itsn't going to help you.
3) You know that they will post all specs, min, req, ect at some point in the near future. Why act all angry that you don't have it this instant?



Thank you Oleg and team for the first official announcement. I can't wait to enjoy your new game!

oh man,
Where and how do you read "all the huff over specs at this point?" and "act all angry that you don't have it this instant?" into what I wrote? Don't do that. It's pure @ss-umption on your part, and makes you look bad. Your points #1 and #2 have some merit though, and are good points. You just earned a "Come on, man!" award for the broad-jump! :D

You guys just amaze me. The spec is going to be a minimum system. If you have built a computer within the past two years you'll probably more than comply. Remember, Oleg is not building this for the gamer elites. He has built it to work with as many computer systems as possible.

After release the forums will have plenty of video gurus ready to share the tips and tricks, and equipment to give your install the big guns.

Agreed. Much too early to plan anything.

Even with these requirements set, you don't know how good the sim will run on YOUR system, which resources are the bottleneck, etc. So lets just wait and see.

The most comical thing is that there is already an other thread about the system requirements.

And I dont understand all the fuzz. The game will be released in 2 months! You will be informed about the requirements long before that.

Damn! Some of you need to take down a notch. You are so wound up about this release.

Its funny though, to read all the panic riddles questions about all sort of things.

Sorry, but yours is not the first or only thread on this subject today. Just take a deep breath and hold it. You'll be ok. Or pass out, which will make one less of these threads the rest of us will have to skim through. :)

Can't we just sit back and bask in the knowledge that release is finally official, at least for 24 hours before we muck up the boards with demands for more? :-P

So it's just fine and ducky to have the release date, and the new site (which badly mis-quotes old Winnie, and has no pre-order info when you press the pre-order button), but not to ask for the system requirements? That's bad form. And the minimum specs could as well be a system that's was minimum for the original IL2 for all I care. I don' think it's too much to ask the man for the recommended system specs. That some of you do think it's too much is your business, and I won;t get into it. I thought I asked a reasonable question in light of the decision to post a release date. Sorry so many have a problem with my question. I'm not one to stir the pot, and I don't think I started stirring this first.
Vyper why don't you just...well enough said.

Moderator, please lock this post. I had no intent for it to take this negative turn.

Maybe YOU'RE not upset, but there have already been enough posts by those who have huffed and puffed about system specs.

Luthier has been posting pics and videos from his system which, if folks have been paying attention, is a mid range system. It's even been said on numerous occasions that a two year old system should give you satisfactory results.

No one is going to be left high and dry when it comes to knowing the specs before the game is released.

Because you had a birth today doesn't mean you should run right out to buy your boy a baseball mitt. IOW: We're all going to buy the game. Waiting a day or two for specs won't affect your gaming or PC purchase. All of us have waited an excruciatingly long time for CoD. A day or two wait to buy the "mitt" isn't going to matter.

Patience.

Maybe Oleg will let us know on Friday. Sure we can wait a few more days anyway.

Their still tweaking, so minimum is probably not set in stone yet...but I'm sure that they have some idea, and may share that soon. It's something I'm willing to find out after I insert the disk.:grin:

Maddox games has atleast till the end of February too optimize the most possible frame rates before having to present the sim to UBi for pressing. Its in their best interest to post the best minimum specs they can.

Can we atleast see some proper gameplay footage/fight? All we have seen is the hand camera recordings of the laggy moscow show. I really want to play a Demo or atleast get some love from the devs, tbh ss dont cut it for gaming. Video is far far far better medium for the genre.
