I commented originally on the PhoenixPoint facebook post but I really need clarification on the required specs for this game:
Me: Bought it. Tried out the current developer version. Performance wasn’t good in “potato” mode on a 2017 MBPR with the Radeon Pro 560 4GB VRAM. I was running in native resolution. Reminded me why I don’t normally play prerelease software. I’m hoping it will have all the usual polish on release. Gameplay looks promising
Phoenix Point: The current development version (as a pre-alpha) doesn’t have any real optimisation yet. The minimum requirements for VRAM is 8GB though.
Me: Phoenix Point crap I didn’t see that. So it won’t work on a top of the range 2017 MacBook Pro (with upgraded graphics card)?
Me: Phoenix Point you might want to update your published specs. It only specifies system RAM not VRAM. I have a higher specced video card than published. If it isn’t going to work then sadly I will need a refund.
My top of the range 2017 MacBook Pro 15" has the optional upgraded graphics card (Radeon Pro 560 with 4GB VRAM) it has 16GB system RAM. Currently the published requirements for this game state that this is sufficient, but the reply to my facebook post from Phoenix Point staff suggests that it is not.
