That puts my mind at ease somewhat, but the fact that you had a dedicated graphics card still makes me wonder if my machine can handle it lol
I've got a 2.6GHz i3 (Dual Core w/ Hyperthreading so 4 Logical Cores), 8GB DDR3 1600 RAM, Windows 8.1, and that's about the summary of my rig. I go more in depth on the Preview of Future GRIP game requirements (Page 2 of viewtopic.php?f=12&t=3440 ) thread, but like I said that's about it. My rig's not necessarily a potato, more like a mid-level toaster XD

What you said makes me feel like I'll still be able to run at 1366x768 fullscreen though so long as I don't go psycho with the settings (which I generally don't do anyway), so thanks for that at least lol

One thing I'm concerned about though is the fact that I'll likely have to actually launch the game in order to get the graphics settings toned to a point that my rig can handle it. Is there a way to edit a .txt file or something like in Minecraft before I launch the game so my laptop doesn't choke while trying to launch it?

Code: Select all

%localappdata%\Grip\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\GameUserSettings.ini

Just replace the relevant section with this and it'll load up the game with minimal settings.

Code: Select all

[ScalabilityGroups]
sg.ResolutionQuality=50.000000
sg.ViewDistanceQuality=0
sg.AntiAliasingQuality=0
sg.ShadowQuality=0
sg.PostProcessQuality=0

@Broscar thanks, that's just what I was looking for. Unfortunately my mouse is deciding that now of all times is a good time to take a crap on me, so that's another thing I have to sink money into, which has worked to push the time when I can actually buy GRIP back yet again -_-
