    It seems my video card doesn't meet minimum requirements, can I still start the game though? I played just fine with it in the beta.

    Yeah...gotta call BS here. Played beta with absolutely no issues while having 3 Gigs of ram. Suddenly they think we need a minimum of 4? Suggest we have 8?!
    Im gonna need my money for Alpha squad back please.

    Recommended 8 GB of RAM?
    Is this a 64-bit game??

    If so, does that mean this game might someday sport a newer version of DirectX?

    I played the beta and I managed to run in absolutely fine with no issues or lag. And now you tell me that I need at least 4 GB of RAM in order to install this game, while at the same time, the game runs fine at 3 GB of RAM?! This is absolutely ridiculous.

    Well this ruined my day.

    There seems to be an error code for "insufficient video card", I had an enjoyable experience in the beta using that card, and now suddenly I can't even use it? Thanks soe.

    Agreed. Its ridiculous. DX11 has MUCH better hardware support, and takes advantage of multiple threads better.
    Whatever, game is still going to be badass!!!

    WHAT is this bull#$%%^

    RT @Totalbiscuit What kind of sorcery is this? My Planetside 2 is running on High at over twice the framerate it was in beta
    SO??? it runs easier now and they bumped the ram up?
    What gives o_O

    i don't have a good enough graphics card. i have a ati radeon hd 3650, and with no money to buy a new one since im just a kid, i can't play. I wish the first one would just go f2p already, because I think my pc would run that one. I still want to play planetside 2 though. How much do you think i'll have to pay for a better card?
  16. Murps

    yeah, I have 2 gigs of ram ran fine in beta, but now I cant even install, I think I will need my money back too if this isn't fixed.
  17. Ceili

    What gives with the insufficient memory error? I played just fine with 2gb of RAM. it's fine if you don't meet the minimum but to lock me out of the game is absurd.

    It really depends really... it can be around 100-200$ and i hope you have a decent CPU as well
  19. Nitsua Noals
