You can buy non-steam version from http://www.totalgaming.net

But if he "sent you the steam version" then you would need to install steam to play it.

yeah show_fps is how I am measuring the fps.

I'll reinstall Survivor today (I had to make room for Fantasy Wars) and see what happens with some of these suggestions.

I have 1gb of ram, which is the max for my motherboard.

And yes SG ran consistently at 20 fps with all settings at Very High except for AA and Antistropic Filtering which are Off. I'll try to disable physics completely to see if that helps. Is there a way for me to play at 800x600?

I ended up getting it for $7.95 since they were also doing $5 off if you signed up for some digital payment system. quite the bargain.

Hmm. Any idea how to tell what size motherboard I have? I've got a Presario 6450NX. The PSU size I need is Micro ATX PS3. Does that mean my mother board is a Micro ATX?

Perhaps because companies insist on charging alot of $$ for up to date hardware? My computer is a P4 2.66 and I have an ATI Radeon 9600XT. I'd shove a more powerful card in there but unfortunately my system is AGP and the more powerful cards require a larger PSU than I can fit in my case. B/c I can'...

Meh. I bought it on sale on Steam and I can definitively say it isn't really playable on my computer at an acceptable gfx level. I get < 10 fps if I use settings similar to what I use in SG. Only way I could even get close to 20 fps was to use the "Very Low" setting on the main launch tab....

Game on sale at steam

Hmm. I was waiting to buy it and I already have Shadowgrounds (non-steam) but I see Steam is having a sale and you can get both SG and SG:Survivor for only $12.95 (they want $17.95 for SG:Survivor by it itself which is...odd). I suppose I can live with the steam version at that price :)

If I look at config\user_autoexec.dhps I can see how a script function might look. But where can I put the script so it gets read by the game everytime I start? I'd like to make a script based on your suggestion that I can bind to a key so I can switch from 3rd person over the shoulder mode like you...

Cool. The demo is what sold me on SG. Any idea how the framerate of SG:S compares to SG? I can play SG at 1024x768 with all graphic settings enabled and at Very High but with antialiasing and antistropic disabled and I get 20+ fps. One of the reasons I've not yet purchased SG:S is I don't know if it...

I *think* what he means is: right now your character aims in the direction you press the joystick. So if you press DOWN, your character aims down. If you press LEFT your character aims left etc. Kinda like that old game robotron. What he WANTS: make it so when you press LEFT, your character starts t...

Nice! I've been wondering if this were possible. I'll try it out next time I play.
