Some really nice shots here. I very much doubt that my two year old system would run this game very well though - and it isn't too bad 1.8ghz amd 64, 2gb dual channel DDR 3000 - but my graphics card would let me down - nvidia 7300 gt.

Bloody nice looking game though - I like the tree models and the textures look pretty sharp and well bump-mapped and the buildings and stonework looks nice too. I run LOTRO on very, very nearly max settings at about 50fps and I'm loving the artwork, design and style of that game, but the general terrain and building textures don't look quite as good as vanguard by the looks of things, also some of the models - like the trees, look better in vanguard too Not too sure about the artwork and zone design - it's hard to judge from looking at the few screenies here and in other threads - but I see both games trying to that living, breathing world feel.

I'm watching how things go with Vanguard, but at the moment I'm having a lot of fun playing and exploring LOTRO - it'd take a lot to peel me away from that game right now. Am I right in thinking that Vanguard is made by the original team from Verant Interactive of EQ fame? Brad McQuaid rings a distant bell, didn't he design the FV RP server setup for EQ?

Anyway... hope you're all having fun with VG, and I hope that the devs pull their bloody fingers out and get it sorted, fixed and running stable for you. Been hearing a lot of negativity about this game, but I know how fickle the MMO community is these days. I might be a big fan of LOTRO right now, but that doesn't mean I'm not interested in other titles too, or that I feel the need to pointlessly bash and lie about other games because it's not what I enjoy, other than stating my opinion on them (which I try and back up with valid examples).

I hope you get many more players to help fill up that rich world of your's. Some of the screenies here really did pique my interest quite a bit, but I guess it's now down to the developers to deliver what they originally promised.

I took a few, but I promise to eventually get better pictures for everyone.



Here is a photo of some group action in a dungeon with some friends:

Group in very scary hallway (I was nervous!):

Here is a photo of a friend of mine, right when I logged-in, being attacked by a Drake (look out!):

My friend on his mount came to visit me (it is like a dragon or something):

My griffon can beat-up your WoW-gryphon (had to say it!):

Edit: btw, I can fully control that flying mount.

Narrative:



Going Solo against the Yeti!

http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/GoingSolo.jpg


But after soloing a bit I decided to meet with my buddy. 

http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/FriendandI.jpg


And so we went off on his boat ("Brown Eyed Girl") to explore unfriendly territory.
http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/Sailing.jpg

Note: the boat is fully controllable. 

While sailing and approaching our destination, we notice an unfriendly player ship where we decided to go.
http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/Unfriendly.jpg


We have an uneasy feeling with that unfriendly player ship but press-on. 
http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/Disembark.jpg


I come across a young native in this unfamiliar and unknown territory.
http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/natives.jpg


However, my time to explore was short-lived:

Awesome armor on your main, Healz. I'm sorry but that armor is the most solid and kewl looking from any game I've seen ever. I'm a full on armor and weapons freak btw which is why I just couldn't get into CoX.

Hehe thanks, well with the fastforward trick i placed on the vids  its almost 50 FPS  if i would play it normal speed its about 22/27FPS inside Khal. And thanks btw my system is AMD x2 4400+, 7900GT, 4gb ram, xfi-e pro,12mbit con. For a casual gamer its a pretty awesome machine, but for a hardcore player i feel its somewhat mid-range, but gonna wait a few months before upgrading to a 8series and up the cpu, but for now pretty satisfied with my system, sure wished i could play Vanguard max settings afcourse but time will heal that like it did for most high system demanding games.

Also i can't figure out why fraps is eating about 15/20 fps. If anyone knows a recording program that doesn't eat that much fps i be happy to hear about it. Like to show afcourse movie with CTRL+P to show fps but already know that when people see it in my fraps movies they will respond with what they see and that mostly about 20/28 fps outside when i turn on fraps compared to the 40/50 i get without fraps outside. Keep in mind i do not temper with ini.flies as doing so might currupt things for future patches, never been a fan of tempering with game files. I thought it was you (thanks btw if so ) that suggested a UI but i had to temper in my ini.files which made me not change the UI .

Another thing i have noticed is to have a retail version of Windows compared to a friend of mine who has a illagal version and i also have one at my gf's computer but notice more games and programs sometimes have problems where i don't.

But then again all this might  just be luck on my part. Well its fun and thats what counts.

Nah... and I'm honestly not trying to be that good making movies but it's fun anyway :)


Cool vids bro, what res do you use? bit jalouze when i see it , i'm playing 1280-1024?, almost every other game always 1600-1200 unfortunaly Vanguard is bit more demanding but like i said previous reply...time will heal ...oh and the recording prog you use=?

Using fraps it is cheap enough and works.

The video gets scaled to 720x??? (depending if playing widescren or not.)
Usually plays windowed at 1400x900. FPS varies around 20 when I am recording.

Using Adobe premiere elements to cut the videos together. Windows own program works to, somewhat.

I'm so broke. I can't even pay attention.

Thank you (blush). 


The armor and weapons in Vanguard is the most exquisitely detailed I have seen in any game.  I wish I knew how to post images better because the details are not as discernible.  Thanks a lot!


Edit:  Wow!  You guys make amazing videos.  I am going to have to figure out how to do this, but I cannot make any promises.  I am not really very tech savvy.  Great vids.

This one is a rather boring run friom Hator Zi to the Gnome bunkers. Starts late afternoon (ingame)

AMD 3500+. 2 gb , ati x1900GT. @1280x1024

It was recorded weeks ago. Newer patches might be with less hitches. Its also better with my newer SATA II HD now. Mind you that fraps was runing in background. The movie is uncuit and the truth.

WARNING. Its ziped 300 megabytes and i will put the move off in a few hours. Mirror and repost here if you want to keep it available.

moonlight run

Edit: Movie is no longer available.

To Be Continued...


Here I was taken captive by the Goblin Witch Doctor, accused of being a Tanvu Settler:

i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/Leader.jpg


In exchange for my release, I agreed to embark on a Quest.  My mission - to slay the Deathlord Braelan. 

Enemies learn of my Quest and try to thwart me, but I flee New Targanor:

i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/PvPChasingme.jpg


Whilst in the city-stronghold New Targanor, an unfriendly player trapped me!:

i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/MountCity.jpg


I managed to escape and meet my friend, waiting for me on the "Brown Eyed Girl" ship:

i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/SailAway.jpg


True to my word, I resume my Quest and seek this Deathlord Braelan at his domain:

i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/Graystone.jpg


I begin to assemble a team of brave and willing adventurers:

i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/Graystoneoutside.jpg


We begin to make our entry into this forbidden place:

i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/GrouptotheDungeon.jpg


We search and search but do not find the Deathlord Braelan:

i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/Search.jpg


The group disassembles, and exhausted I begin to ponder my difficult Quest:

i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/MountnearHouse.jpg


Have I failed this Quest?

Hope is found! A man who can spy for me by transforming into a Skeleton!:

My spy learns of his location, and we spot the forsaken Deathlord!:

He is an extraordinarily powerful Dread Knight, knowing neither mercy nor pain but only death!:

Hehe.  (beams with a smile).  I hope you are referring to my posted slideshow, Urdig, if so thank you.



I wanted to post my FPS in a demanding arena where there is both ongoing PvP and PvE.  IF anyone in the game has played in the arena, it is the equivalent in many respects of a major city. 


Arena

PvE (similar to a city)

(1)  You can initiate PvE events inside of the arena
(2)  You obtain many and varied Quests
(a)  there are significant gear Quests
(i)   you also improve your faction with the Minotaurs from Quest completion

PvP

(1)  Many Shadow and Order lurk in PvP area because of PvE activities




In this photograph, I am being pursued by a Shadow:

i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/FPS.jpg


In this photograph, you cannot make out the PvE you can see the flame next to me and all the details (the flames and environmental effects tend to reduce FPS):

i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/FPS2.jpg


I just found this one while swimming (non-Arena):

i85.photobucket.com/albums/k68/eqclovis/FPSswimming.jpg


The above are on Highest Graphics and Ultra High detail.


I am actually not familiar with FPS (Frames Per Second) but if you can make it out, I have around average late 60s to early 70s while I play the game.  In many ways, that is the case while in cities as well.  I hope it works!  Edit:  If some one knows how to post images better, please send me a mail. My pictures do not do the game justice.


My performance has improved drastically since release.  I cannot speak for everyone, though.
