|Mac OS X 10.7.4||Intel Core i7 @ 2.2 GHz||AMD Radeon HD 6750M||The game seems to work and be playable. However, frame rate drops down from 60FPS in menus to 20-35FPS during matches and 3D models have rendering issues (especially characters). Using default settings and DSP HLE.||Nolendil|
|Windows 10||Intel Xeon E3-1245 @ 3.3 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450||Settings: OpenGL, Asynchronous (Ubershaders), Per-Pixel Lightning, 2x native resolution. Other settings left to their default value.
I only played 2 matches to give an update since my last test entry. The game works great. Frame rate is good all the time, no noticeable rendering issue. I also did a quick test using DirectX 11 & 12 with the same settings (i.e. without disabling "Fast Depth Calculation"): there were a few blinking surfaces but I only noticed it during the intro animation, probably due to the camera angles. Otherwise, it worked fine.
