So stuff does not get lost in the Demo Out Now thread.

So far everything has run smoothly with all things turned on. Did not want to launch with SLi on, but I may need to tweak things.

Tis a lot of fun with the various treasures, trade routes and general old Age gameplay.

Need to learn those short cut keys quickly.

One question: considering that the demo is out now, how long before magazines (In Britain) will have it on their cover discs?

I aint spending 15 hours on a 56k

You know, if this was back at University, this'd seriously be a 10 minute download, but I don't go back til the 25th.

How does it look guys?

I can't believe this is happening! I've downloaded the demo and installed it. But when I try to start the game my computer suddenly just reboots. I've tried it several times but the same thing just happens over and over again. This is a nightmare! Can anyone help me? :-(

If they did then I wouldn't even bother to download a 33hr and 40 min. demo.

I'd rather wait for the real thing then.

True, but it's midnight now, it won't finish d/ling before I go to work, at 3pm.

I'll start it at 9pm tomorrow night, so it'l be done noon the next day.

EDIT: Is it possible with Firefox, to pause your d/l, disconnect, then start again. Because the last time I tried that, it didn't work.

Wow, the changes from my build to the demo are dramatic to say the least. For starters the level of optimization put in is pwnage, with the preview I have constant overheating problems running everything on low... with the demo I have everything screaming on high details and i'm getting no problem at all.

also everything looks smaller I think they allowed a further zoom level in the demo, or they just cut back on model sizes.

The game plays like a freakin dream on my machine, I can't wait til MP comes along!

Since my mofo PC just owns I cant attribute any problems to it... in fact the game plays great.

For some reason I thought it would look better. I'm haunted by AOM here... Also the upgrades via age are strange and so is the general gameplay.

GRANTED I played 1 game. I will play a few more tonight but it does not seem to have the brightness? Not sure what's wrong. Something is a bit off... I'll play a few more times though be4 I post my full opinion.

Kudos for the early demo!

Well there is so many things I could praise about the game, that it would take up and entire page. So it will be quicker to list my main gripes...

1) Maps are a bit too small in skirmish mode.
2) The inability to see the unit hitpoints and damage without clicking on the unit tab is a tad annoying
3) The GUI is a bit GIGANTIC.

My main praises would be:
1) The game looks beautiful and runs smoothly.
2) Native alliances are very cool and add lots of depth
3) The home city and all the things that come with it.
