    You enable AA in-game? And you running DX9 or DX10?

    Got a few friends in Beta, and the last patches have improved things ALOT.

    They now play with everything max'ed at 40+ fps with 4xAA etc.

    Think they turned off debugging, and also fixed a sync-issue and also removed pretty much all memory-leaks, so its supposedly very playable now.

    I'll find out myself i guess when the early-access starts :D

    Did that with the lowest settings possible 1024x768 windowed using dx9. I guess my ati x850 just wont cut it anymore.

    Does AA actually "work" now? Back some months ago when i enabled it the game turned into an unplayable stutter fest. Im tempted but not sure i feel like redownloading the 20gb beta for a retry....

    The dev's have talked about working closely with MS for integrating DX10 support into the game.

    Does anyone know whether the bonus given at character creation (the rhino/elephant) are one time gifts, or are they given to all characters you have?

    I've heard conflicting reports on this so no idea.

    I think I'm gonna be on the Gwahlur server playing a female Stygian demonologist with big tits.

    Damn, was hoping they had finalized that decision.
    lol, good choice. Have they added females then?

    Yup, females have been in for several weeks now. Customisations on them were lacking last I checked, but they've hopefully fixed that today.

    And AA works perfectly on my 8800GT, basicly free since I'm way too cpu bound.

    As for the black screen at startup, that could be just the client downloading stuff in the background. Do you hear sounds in the background whilst the screen is black? If so, leave it for a few minutes and it should start showing things.
    Thought it was fixed, but haven't reinstalled it for ages...

    In case anyone missed it, Age of Conan has passed over a million beta signups, which is more than WOW or indeed any other game in history.

    Fired up AoC last night, the looks are nice. Tried demonology and necromancer, nice classes. Im going to have to play longer to decide if I like it.

    Well yeah, AoC was one of the first ever titles announced long ago about having DX10 support. My point is that at release they still don't have DX10 ingame nor was it ever in the beta.

    Bitter-sweet announcement. Over a million people get to decide whether they like the game without paying a cent for it. :/ Can game development survive this kind of free exposure?

    Who defines what is beta? Not the beta players that's for sure. A million signed up for beta, doesn't mean a million got into beta.

    Frankly I'd be more worried about the recent tendency to release beta-quality crap to paying customers. That's much more likely to have a negative impact on the survival of game development. Poor quality games is what will kill game development, not short-lived freebies for a decent product.
