    no AVX = no go ?

    oh don't worry I made my choice (30+ years working as hardware / software dev on cpu & gpu so I think I know what my rigs can do and cannot do and what is marketing bullshit and what is not). I'm not asking NQ to accommodate old hardware by being less efficient on modern cpu that have these instruction sets, that would be idiotic. The usual way to do this is to use the avx instructions is they're available and use regular , slower, code if they're not. Why I think it's important for this game ? because it's targeted to be an 'free to buy' mmo with a paid subscription. There are a lot of people with what you call 'outdated' computers especially people playing mmo genre games that when DU launch would want to try it. I think it's better for this game to let them try it even it's slow on their computer rather than completely shutting them out with that error message. If the game is good then people will change or adapt their hardware to continue playing. I doubt most of them will change their hardware just to try the game. The latest steam survey indicates 88% support for AVX. Are these missing 12% worth a few lines of code change ? That's the question for NQ.

    it is only the cpu that is old, the gpu is a 1080-ti. it's not that unreasonable since Moore's law kinda dead for cpu. That hardware can still hold these requirements. They could just provide a simple program to test & validate the hardware since their game requires special instructions. Where are the "minimal hardware spec" mentioning this ? (and were do you find them BEFORE buying a pledge ?) the only ones I found in the FAQ page in the home page: Please note that the following requirements might evolve due to potential programming changes. Minimal AMD A8-7600 / Intel core i3-7100 / intel core i5-4440 8GB RAM Nvidia Geforce GTX 960 / Radeon RX 550 2GB VRAM Windows 10 (can run on Windows 7 but not guaranteed) Recommended AMD Ryzen 7 1700 / Intel Core i7-6700K 16GB RAM Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 / Radeon RX 580 4GB VRAM Windows 10 Usually minimal recommandations indicate a "performance" minimum not an "age" maximum (aka anything as powerful as an Intel core i3-7100 not anything as or more recent than an Intel core i3-7100). Compared to an overclocked i7 920 the performance is in par: https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/Intel-i3-7100-vs-Intel-i5-4440-vs-Intel-i7-920/2924vs2017vs834 So it's not a performance issue, it's an instruction set issue and that's kinda new in gaming. imho, it's worth mentioning or they'll have a lot of tech support/refund requests at launch like Ubisoft did.

    no AVX = no go ?

    Hi, I just bought a supporter pack (120€), installed the game but then I get an error about missing AVX... I conclude that my hardware isn't compatible (Intel i7-920 overclocked and a Xeon too). Wish they had written this in the store page... Is there a very short term plan to remove AVX requirements ? Even Ubisoft patched Odyssey to remove their initial mandatory AVX support ... If not can I and how do I get a refund ? Thx

    Pledge + NDA ?!

    so the NDA itself is in the NDA ...🤯

    Pledge + NDA ?!

    The main issue I have is that we don't know what's in the NDA before buying a pack. if it's just about 'sharing footage of the game' or more.

    Pledge + NDA ?!

    I was about to buy the 120€ pledge to get in the alpha access but then a friend told me there is also a NDA to agree to access the game. But in the pledge "store" pages there is no mention of any NDA at all. I've tried up to the point you choose the payment option and still no NDA. So my question is: is there really a NDA? can we see the NDA details before actually buying a pledge or can we get a refund if we don't agree to the NDA ? And to be completely honest, I find very odd and harsh to make people pay to access an alpha AND at the same time ask them to follow a NDA... Usually it"s either free invite alpha with a NDA or paying early access/baking and no NDA...
