CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K @ default



OS: Windows 7 x64

SETTINGS: 1920x1080, completely maxed, without vsync and motion blur. In the city FRAPS shows between 15 and 45 frames. Clearly the game needs optimizations.

Ram: 8GB

Gpu: Radeon R9 290 (latest drivers)

OS: W8.1


Very variable frame rates at 1080p. I had to enable vsync using RadeonPro as in small scenes it is fine (maxing at 130~140fps) but in the city it drops right down, specially near air vents and heavily lighted areas. Reducing SSAO or AA has very little effect gaining 3fps of an average ~18fps in busy scenes and around 20 and 30 in less busy scenes.


it dropped right down to 5fps.

CPU: AMD Phenom X4 9550 2.2 GHz (default)


GPU: GeForce GT 630

OS: Win7


Always ran with 720p, first running at high settings, but eventually dropped down to low when framerate kept getting low.


Then I entered the Europolis hub and it went off a cliff. Yes, it's an old rig, I agree (oldest components like mainboard are from 2006, with the CPU upgrade from 2009-ish and not really a gaming graphics card), but still, for the most part before Europolis, it was surprisingly OK.


Can't believe I'm considering a hardware (mostly graphics card) upgrade because of an adventure game ;) but then again, Dreamfall is something I really wanna play with a good experience!

CPU: AMD FX-6300 (X6) @ 3.5 GHz


GPU: AMD Radeon 7700 Series

OS: Windows 8 x32

SETTINGS: medium, 1920x1080, anti-alliasing medium, SSAO off


The game works well, but I haven't reached the dreaded Europolis yet. And yes, given a choice, I'd switch to Windows 8 x64, because x32 limits my RAM to 3 GB and this can become a problem.


Edit: I've hit Europolis. After a couple of instant crashes, I've put everything on minimum settings and now the game works flawlessly. It's not as pretty as before, but it works :) .

CPU: Intel Core i5-4210M 2.6 GHz (Turbo 3.2 GHz)
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M (2 GB RAM), latest drivers
OS: Windows 7 x64
Settings: High, no antialising, no motion blur, 720p
Awfully visibly annoyingly low FPS in Europolis. Setting it to medium or low does not improve FPS whatsoever. Please optimize your engine and test it on more devices in the future.

CPU: AMD PHenom II X4 3,0 Ghz
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX 750
OS: Win7 x64
Settings: High, AA high, SSAO off, Motion blur off @ 1280x1024

Problems only in Europolis lagged/stuttered and froze after a while.
But after a Restart I was able to play the exact same locations with no problems.
I just had to run to get there.
I seems to be something that accumulates over time and does not free up unused memory,
just a guess, because the freezing corresponded with my HDD light blinking.
It felt like something temporarely hijacked all resources to do something completly different
for a few seconds.
As soon as the HDD light went dark the Game went on smoothly until the next freeze.
This happens in shorter and shorter intervalls until I had to restart.

CPU: Intel i7-5960X
RAM: 16 GB
GPU: AMD HD 7970
OS: Windows 8.1
Settings: Awesome, 2560x1440, High AA, High SSAO

The following was was observed at some point in Europolisat:
19 fps, 26% GPU load, 16.3% CPU usage.

Now let's try lowest quality settings:
Settings: Low, 1280x720, AA off, SSAO off

19 fps, 32% GPU load, 16.0% CPU usage. In other words, no obvious difference, although fps is higher in less busy areas.


Needless to say, the hardware is not fully utilized, and the game feels sluggish.

1920x1200 All maxed looks acceptable though in some rooms (say, in Mira workshop) it drops significantly (to 16fps) and switching every setting off and dropping overall to low(!!) makes it 25-28 fps only. Seems to be a glitch ((

Hoped it would work on my Sony Vaio VPCSB, but... :/


CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.3GHz

RAM: 4Gb

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6470M

OS: Windows 7 (64 bit)


Starting the game, I only get the menu music and a black screen.


On my boyfriend's 2011 Mac mini* everything worked (lowest graphic settings) until Europolis, where the massive lagging started.

Once I ran into the

and restarted the game, I ended up with a black screen. Sometimes I managed to reload, but then the game froze after a few seconds.

So sad. :/


(*Mac mini: 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5, 4 Gb DDR 3 RAM, AMD Radeon HD 6630 M 256 MB)



Edit: Finally got the game to run on my laptop by changing the resolution to 640*480 in the registry. :>


Edit²: ...and with the lowest graphics settings, there is no lagging in Europolis at all. Yay! :)

CPU: AMD Phenom II X3 720 2.8 ghz

OS: Win 7 x64


SETTINGS: Awesome @1920x1080
                    AA medium     SSAO off
                    Motion Blur definitely OFF, otherwise I would get very queasy. :)


I've got no clue about frame rates but I didn't have any trouble even though I've got an older system.


Or maybe I'm just happy that I'm able to play it at all because I still haven't figured out why my computer was constantly getting blue screens every time I played a game.

I was able to download and install the game via Humble.  Now my issue is with when I try to play the game.  The framerate is real slow, real choppy.  The opening cut scene was pretty much un-watchable, so I quit before it was over, figuring the actual game wouldn't fair much better.


The FAQ says stuff about adjusting settings and whatnot, but those didn't seem to stick, or maybe the game just lagged out.  I saved up a bunch of money a few years back to get this computer, monitor, and parts for it, so it would be ready to be able to play this game.  But, apparently it's still under-powered?  That would be heartbreaking, if so.


I looked at the system requirements on the Steam page (couldn't find them on this site), and I'm not sure if my computer meets them or not.




And here is what my computer has -


Operating System: Windows 7

Processor: AMD Athlon™ II X2 250 Processor 3.00 GHz

Memory: 4.00 GB (2.00 GB usable)

Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 5450 1GB DDR3 video memory


DirectX: I can't find where this is on computer, but I'm pretty sure it's 11, since that's what the Graphics Card is compatible with, and I recall seeing that on my computer somewhere.


Network: High speed cable broadband connection

Hard Drive: 193 GB Free Space of 450 GB

Sound Card: Obviously I have a sound card.



Try running through here for specs: http://redthreadgame...s-and-hardware/

According to your specs, I'd suggest setting quality to medium, disable everything else and setting resolution to 1280x720

Thanks.  I was running the default settings.  I don't know how I feel about changing the resolution to that, since my monitor's resolution is 1920x1080, but I'll mess with some settings and see what happens.

CPU: Intel Core2Quad Q9550 @ 3,6ghz (stock is 2,83)

Mem: 8.00 GB DDR2 @ 1055mhz

Graphics: AMD Radeon HD7950 (stock speeds)

OS: Win7 X64 Professional

Settings: Awsome, AA Medium (but enabeling AA doesn't seem to work, sharp edges at every setting.) SSAO medium


Eyefinity setup, 3 screens with 1600x1200 resolution, resulting in a combined resolution of 5040x1200 with bezel compensation

Game performance at this resolution is not so good.. It's playable, but not very smoothly.. lowering to high didn't result in better FPS.. A bit dissapointing at that point. I'm estimating it about 10 - 25FPS using FRAPS..

RTG, please optimize things in the coming patch.. When does the first patch arrive?

OS: Windows 7 (64-bit)

SETTINGS: 1920x1080, Awesome settings, AA high, SSAO high.


Game ran perfectly smooth until I reached Europolis, where it fluctuates between 15 and 40 fps. Performance is exactly the same on low settings, no fps boost whatsoever by turning it down :/

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition - 3.7 GHz



OS: Windows 8.1
Settings: Several different ranging from max to low/medium

I have horrible FPS in just the opening scene at around 20 FPS in average, and that goes for several different settings.

I'm putting the game on hold for now, I'm either gonna wait for better optimization or hold on just a bit longer til everything is out. We'll see.


My setup runs everything else on decently high settings, so I should be able to get more than 20 FPS from this.

Processor: i5-3570 @ 3,40GHz

Graphics: Radeon HD 7700 (1Gb)

RAM: 8 Gb

OS: Windows 8,1


Visual: High

1600 x 900


AA: medium

SSAO: off

Noise/grain: yes

Motion blur: 0%


Slight scudding in intro cut scene, but in-game no issues. Perfectly fast enough for the pace of play required. Not explored Europolis that much, just wandered about a little beside the food stalls, but I didn't feel that anything slowed down and the looking around was just as smooth as in any other scene.


I could maybe afford to up the settings, then, but these were the ones that it chose itself and it looks great to my eyes. I did initially put everything up full to see how that would work, and yeah...not playable. But then this isn't a gaming rig, so it seems to be doing fine.

Not that far into the game, but done some walking around Europolis. Frame rates are no lower than 40, really. No freezes, the occasional dip perhaps. HOWEVER, the thing is I'm running at 1280x1024, so I can't really know how it works out until I try it out on the TV in ... well, something a bit higher. :P Perhaps tomorrow.
