Okay, so in my frustration  Undecided.................. (waiting for the precious game to come out)  I just completed the application to become a tester.............

Now my question comes in where, at one point the TOR systems did a scan of my desktop PC, and then finished without giving me an answer on whether I failed or passed the scan to see if the game would perform on my system........  Undecided

(when it was doing the scan, it said to watch for a yellow line if it ran into some kind of problem, but it never changed from the Blue, I'm Hoping This Is A Good Thing "fingers crossed")

Here's my PC's general specs:

It's an HP

It got a 3.5 rating on the "Windows Experience Rating" (what ever the hell that means lol)

(To Give More Specifics To This I Present The Following):

Processor:  Calculations Per Second  6.3

Memory (RAM): Memory Operations Per Second  6.3

Graphics: Desktop Performance For Windows Aero  3.9

Gaming Graphics: 3D Business and Gaming Graphics Performance  3.5

Primary Hard Disk: Disk Transfer Rate  5.9

(I found something that said that the scores range anywhere from: 1.0 to 7.9)

 
It Has a Pentium(R) Dual Core CPU E5500 @ 2.80 GHz 2.80 GHz (whatever the hell all that means lol)

7 GB's of RAM (it calls it "Installed Memory", I'm assuming that's just the technical name for RAM and doesn't specify any uniqueness)

I'm running on a 64-Bit Operating System

Windows 7 Home Premium



As you can tell, I AM NOT TECH SAVY really at all  Undecided............. I'm just not Bao-Dur lol............

Here's the questions in all of this:

#1:  Can anyone make any since out of this?!?  (Let Me Know Whether or Not I Passed The TOR Performance Scans)

#2:  (To Those That Are More Tech Savy)  Do you think my PC will be able to run TOR without any serious problems...........  Undecided (I'll put a new graphics card in if I have to....... but I would rather not have to  Undecided..........)

Really all I know is you have a good machine.(I won't go into details and confuse you. Cheesy) It should run TOR fine, but I don't know the actual game specs or system requirements, so I can't say for sure. But you're well within the 'average range'(for lack of a better term) of computer specs so you shouldn't have to worry, since a game like this will be built with the 'lowest common denominator'(for lack of a better term, again) in mind.

Well, I think you've passed the scan. BUT it don't mean that you'll be picked for the tests. I have made this scan 3 months ago and I'm not part of them Wink

It's purely random.

BUT, tests are on. That means that they might have a new wave of testers when they feel it necessary.

But most important : that means that the game is in the final steps. It will be released SOON.

@ to Jodann:

Thanks Bro, no worries on the whole testing thing............. in all honesty, I don't really care whether or not I get picked to test it or not, I just wanted to get an idea of whether or not my desktop would run TOR Wink.  Now with this knowledge, I can calm down a little bit, and now just focus on wishing for the release date Wink.

One of the nice things about TOR is they are specifically designing it so it can run on non top end computers. while it will be better on top end machines, it will work just fine on ones that are a few years old.

 it Has a Pentium(R) Dual Core CPU E5500 @ 2.80 GHz 2.80 GHz (whatever the hell all that means lol)

7 GB's of RAM (it calls it "Installed Memory", I'm assuming that's just the technical name for RAM and doesn't specify any uniqueness)

yeah your more than good with this.

Well if they are going through the final checks, and the rumors about Oct-Nov is true, its probably all ready being tested.  I can only imagine that it will take some time to box and distribute all those packages for processing and shipping.

Yeah, (sorry for the delayed response on this My Brother, I Took A Leave of Absence For A Couple of Days), but I haven't received any kind of notice as of yet, so my guess would be that they are already full up on testers...

Good News:  Maybe The Rumors About October/November Are True Wink!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You just need to have an account over on BioWare's SW:TOR forum. Then you can go into your account settings and at the bottom of \ Basic Info' there's the option which will allow you to set yourself as available for beta-testing.

No guarantees that you'll get in though, but you can turn the option on which should take you to a page that scans your system and sets things up.

Hope this helps Smiley

Oh okay... I thought the "Beta" would be something of a larger scale than the testing that has been going on, but no biggie Wink

I Appreciate The Info Wink
