GUIDE WILL THIS PC PLAY MW:O? 2.0 For those who don't know who am I. I was the person who created and posted the following guide below http://mwomercs.com/...is-pc-play-mwo/ It's been two years since that topic was updated about PCs and running MW:O When the game was in beta stage, it was only running on DX9 API which depends more on stronger CPU cores than GPU power. Now with DX11 API, the graphics rendering workload falls more on the GPU (well sort of) :| Most of you may or may not know, this game is powered by CryEngine 3 which is the same game engine as the FPS game Crysis 3 which requires a high end PC to run it at respectable framerate. But not all gamers out there will have the best hardware at hand. So this is where my guide comes in. I have personally tested this game on a mid spec laptop and I can play it smoothly at 720P med res without AA on the laptop’s 15" HD screen. Here is what listed as the minimum specs for your PC to play MWO on the game website. MechWarrior Online Minimum Requirements: CPU: Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz / Athlon II X2 245e GPU: GeForce 8800GT / Radeon HD 5600/5700 RAM: 4 GB OS: Windows XP 32-bit SP3 DirectX: DX9 HDD Space: 8 GB As you can see it shows the Core 2 Duo can support this game, but I can assure you, it will be a nightmare to even play a single match properly. When the fight gets intense, your framerate will drop till it becomes a PowerPoint slideshow with single digit framerates. Before you rebut that your spec of your PC is much similar or better to the above. Please try to perform the following steps on your computer. Do a full anti-virus scan of your PC to rid of viruses and spy ware using a combination of MalwareBytes, SpyBots S&D and AVG Antivirus. Always make sure to update all your GPU, sound drivers and network card drivers (this is optional) (AMD or nVidia and Realtek) Empty/clean out your computers recycle bin Make sure to have at least 20GB or more of free space on your hard drive Install Ccleaner and do a registry cleanup Do a disk cleanup as well with CCleaner to remove unwanted junk to free up disk space. Followed by a Disk De-fragmentation to compact the files in C Drive (If you are running HDD) SSD have disk defragmentation disable as they use TRIM, so do not defrag your SSD. Disable programs or services which are not needed when running MWO eg: Adobe Reader,Java update, Office, etc Make sure that your internet connections is stable with low ping count and if possible, use direct wired LAN connection to your router.
