Now I am not the tech type of guy, but these specifications don't look too demanding. What do you guys think?

You do not have to worry about that , I also have the same graphics card like yours i.e geforce 8600 GT 512 mb ddr2 and i think you will able to play TRU on max

Unfortunately, I might have to pass on this TR installment.

My laptop has a P-M 2.0 GHz (which is equivalent to a P-4 3.0+ GHz in terms of performance) but only Pixel and Vertex shader 2.0 for my graphics card (ATI FireGL T2). Everything else is fine.

What exactly happens if I only have the 2.0 shaders and not the recommended 3.0 shaders? Will the game not run at all or can I just dial down some of the settings?

I'd like to be able to play this game (and will give the demo a try), but I've already maxed out my ThinkPad and buying a new computer is not a consideration right now.

yeah thats weird, why would someone use the 360 controller for the PC game, chances are if they had a 360 controller you know, they'd have...an actual 360 :lol:

so why wouldn't they be playing on that :D

23rd Oct 2008, 05:19
why is is that every time we expect something good, could turn out to be frustrating at the end...tell me...is it so difficult to ask from the developer to make this game a bit more playable...I understand that their aim is to make Lara more believable and make the game more realistic as possible...but to what price?...it's as if they don't want us to play Underworld or something...OMG look at those system requirements...!...it's freakin me out...it's too much...needless to say I was expecting it to be more reachable...(requirements)...well, perhaps I have no choice but to endulge the game without the features and quality graphics enabled...I still hope there's an option to switch next gen option on and off...:(

Sometime the mouse and keyboard controls annoy me big time. If that is true for this game I might buy an xbox controller. Not an entire Xbox.

I think the minimum requierments are fine. The recommended are a bit high. My new (one week old) 1500 dollar computer doesn't meet the recommended settings (just).

But all in all i'm fine with the requierments. This means, if you have a computer that can run this game, it will look amazing!

I have Nvidia GeForce 8600GT too, its wonderful with many games. To be honest it will be perfect for Tomb Raider Underworld, trust me!
I play Crysis Warhead and the graphics are blooming marvellous every leave, waterfall, etc is so detailed like a photograph and performance is so good at its top level that I would be extremely surprised if Tomb Raider Underworld struggles with it simply because I know that the system requirements won't be as heavy as Crysis Warhead and even if they are they definitely won't be as heavy as Crysis (Warhead)!

So don't worry!:)

Yes, the PC system requirements are finally revealed !!

Though mine won't handle it because it is not a gaming PC and failed on all aspects. I expected that so I'm not surprised. LOL..
Anyway, I'll just stick with the PS3 version. :D

Ayup LCR...

The Nvidia driver is software for running your graphics card, wot runs the graphics for your game... mine is supported, but its not the 'Best' you can get, to run yours optimally. you may need to download a new bit of software to run the graphics faster and better. for me, i thought my new machine had 2 Gig of RAM, but alas, the checks show only 1.7. so i need a new RAM chip and the case opened up... which i don't wanna do. its cheaper than, say an X-Box, but i may buy one of those instead... it seems the 'best' console to have considering the DLC and all.

But it will, unfortunately have to wait... mind you by the time i get it, the frenzy TO download the DLC may have finished..

hooray for quad core! still in good shape to run this game so far. hopefully it doesnt get any more complex before release.


i have VISTA, but will it be 64-bit compatible? <------ most important question for me.

here are my stats...

also to note: from what i read on the site, there will not be a DEMO for PC users. however, x360 users will have one next tuesday.

Its a direct link to the Tomb Raider Underworld system requirments test. I pass the minimum but fail recommend only the graphics card 8600GT flops on the recommended but everything else passes on the recommended I have a quad core PC and 3 GB ram I should have no problems running this game since I can play Crysis Warhead with absolutely no problems:lol:

just ran the CAN U RUN IT app, and i am glad i will be able to. kinda sucks about the video card, though. this game is too particular. with my HD3650, it spanks the req's, yet it still gives me a FAIL, just cause i do not have "the right" card.

sorry for the big pic :(

well actually this isn't a problem. I also fail the recommended with my Nvidia GeForce 8600GT but I am sure this is as good as a recommended card.

As long as you pass all the video card features this is as good as a recommended pass. I also the recommended on Crysis Warhead for example and that's only the graphics card that I fail. But I manage to play the game using the highest rating which is the enthusiastic.

Sometimes recommended is just simply nonsense I've had games running superb when I failed recommended. Where as others which I have passed recommended don't run as well as it claims to. This assessment is more like a rough analyses then anying.
I for example fail brothers in arms hells highway and that's the Quad Core Q6600 processor. But I tried running that game and its blooming awesome, so smooth I couldn't believe it.
Don't worry about the recommended fail its often nonsense:nut: :rolleyes:

bingojubes
26th Oct 2008, 00:18
i think it wants the HD4800 because of its clock speed -

at GDDR3, the 4800 is running slightly faster than GDDR2, so @ 3x512, its running like there is a fast 1536MB of video ram. i guess at GDDR2 (or just plain DDR2), 2x1024= a slightly slower 2048MB.

could be wrong though. but after researching the price/specs for the card, that's the main difference i see. i thought about upgrading my card anyways, but at $200+ dollars, i think i can handle this game anyways :)

upon release, i will try to run all graphics at max, and see for meself.

My system being:

Intel Core2 Duo E7200, 4GB OCZ 800MHz SLI Ram, ATi 4670, 500GB HDD capacity.

I'm going with Vista soon too....

By the way, does anyone know if this is a DirectX 10 game?

Debating over PS3 or PC version!!

bingojubes
26th Oct 2008, 20:33
if its a games for windows, good chance it may be DX10, but vista i think hass both 9 & 10 capabilities, so u would have coverage either way. i still go for PC because of possible mods, and is cheaper than the console versions (price is real big factor for me right now). plus, i can read the manual during installation, to get myself acquainted with the game before starting it - 2 things at once! also, my x360 controller hasnt had a decent workout, since not alot of games support it, even the "games for windows" ones that i have.

as for vista...stick with 32-bit for awhile. i have 64-bit, and i realizing quick not alot of my old stuff runs on it, sadly.

The PC version is as good as any console. Remember that Tomb Raider was first made for the PC version therefore the PC is specialised to run Tomb Raider games more. Plus its much better to control Lara with a keyboard than a game controller, well certainly for me. I play only FIFA 09 and PES 2009 with gamepad but all others are better using a keyboard. Especially games like Tomb Raider where you have to jump and grab ledges and swim. I can't imagine to do that using a gamepad. That's why not only is the PC version cheaper you got all the options in the world you can use a gamepad and a keyboard.

Yes, agree stick with 32 bit as it has more advantages than disadvantages. According to that site 32 bit gives better performance!http://www.build-your-own-computer-tips.com/64-32-bit-processors.html

yeah there is something that ı have got only difference about the model of nvidia video cards mine is 9800 gt and recommended wanted as gtx model of it but this is so small point not so important it says there ı could be run TRU but maybe ı can have got only a little bit low video aspect cause of the video card difference...:o :)

So will it run or not? :mad2: :mad2: :mad2: :mad2:

Does the card have pixel and vertex shader 3.0? If not, the demo will not initialize; it seems the game needs fairly high-end graphics to run at all.

Well I can say that my card is a bit old but I played Tomb Raider Anniversary on the graphics all to MAX and I didn't had a problem.

31st Oct 2008, 23:41
You'll probably start getting problems (slow down) if you try and max out all the display settings, but with your PC specs, you'll certainly be able to run the game.

And this should be in one of the Tomb Raider: Underworld The Demo sub-forums ;)

^ Not necessarily. My specs are roughly equivalent to those of the OP and I cannot run the demo. It appears the graphics requirements are quite strict with this game.

yeah thats weird, why would someone use the 360 controller for the PC game, chances are if they had a 360 controller you know, they'd have...an actual 360 :lol:
so why wouldn't they be playing on that :D

I'll tell you why Josh. The PC version tends to be the most graphically amazing version & you can Mod outfits & stuff on it. As was the clear case for me with Anniversary. I bought Anniversary on the PC since the 360 version wasn't even announced yet & I do not like to play with a keyboard, so I used my 360 controller with excellence & a huge grin on my face. :D

When the 360 version came out, I bought that too & was highly disappointed on the graphical quality compared to the PC version. Yes I was running it on my HDTV via 1080p & still the PC version was sharper, clearer & just awesome. So, that is why I would be playing it on my PC with the 360 controller, which btw, is ergonomically comfortable for extended play sessions!

I upgraded my PC today just because of the TRU demo :D
I bought a new graphic card (NVidia 9600 GT, 2000 MHz, 512 MB) plus two extra gigabytes of RAM so that now I have 3 GBs.

I have a rather old processor (AMD 3500+ 2.2 GHz) BUT the entire demo runs perfectly smoothly even with the highest texture details and all effects turned on.

So if you need to upgrade your PC, it seems like a good idea to start with the graphic card ;)

Btw, I'm so totally AMAZED by the demo!!!

2nd Nov 2008, 09:13
I think the recommended specs are a bit exaggerated, judging by the demo level. Who knows what kind of eye candy comes with the game though.

With my 5200X2 and 8800GT the FPS was 45-75 FPS, so it's not like it's flying.

2nd Nov 2008, 15:46
people people people,

I read alot of posts about people there systems cant handle the game etc etc.

I found this problem always a problem what gives games a bit to extreem slowdown on developing:

My own system atm:

2x gtx 280
quad core top model atm
some nice mobo
2TB hdd's
8gb 4,4,4,12 ddrII

While my system is kinda high end besides the ddr2 memory but i wont get much of a slowdown at this game with it. My system will run the game perfectly smoothly with every eye candy there is.

I always look myself for games that match my system, its what i like. I buy games not to play them to the end, i buy them to see how my system reacts on games. I love to see beautifull games with alot of eyecandy. If my system cant handle it to the max i will just upgrade it with the newest stuff there is.

I always buy tomb raider games for 2 reasons, 1 play them to the end ( because i just love the story's ) and second most important part is how the eye candy is.

After i readed some posts with 9800gtx for recommend is to much because it costs me to much.

I would say the 9800gtx is a top model of a earlyer generation of videocards ( besides the x2 version). If you would know something at all about pc's is that 280 is the newest serie.
I Dont find it weird personally that that card has been selected to be the recommend stat because its a old videocard that still can pull off some nice fps. I would say 8800gtx as minimum , a 9800gtx as recommend and 280 as high end.

Yes PC's kost alot of money. Is it impossible to get ? NO way. People are just lazy themself by not getting a job on saturday or sunday to gain a bit of money. YES you wont earn 1000 euro at 1 week. But if you just work and put like every 5 euro you earn 1 euro to your save account you will get at the end enought money to atleast update your system every year.

Atm i'm 22 years myself, i'm a student and work beside my study. I earn this way tons of money to upgrade my system like i did at 14 years old already.

What i really hate is:

Games with crappy engines that are to much optimized for people with low end systems. I find it good that they put like low options at games for people that just wanna play tomb raider because of there story's or whatever. But dont turn down the grafics from games because the majority cant handle the eye candy.

People with pentiums 4 and there 512 mb with there 9800pro ( 128mb version ). Ofcourse you cant handle the game its to old for your PC, you could run any game smoothly with it and never will. ( 10-29 fps aint smooth ) from 30 it is.

Its like the same thing that you wanna play a playstation 3 game on a playstation 1. Ofcourse you cant handle it.

.......

About some post that i saw on the forum, people that can play this game on there laptops.

I got 2 laptops atm

1 mid end
1 high end

the mid end is a budget one from about 1000 euro bought 4 months ago and cant play the game at all, maybe it can but 5-10 fps with almost no eye candy.

The high end costed me about 3200 euro ( i actually won this one ) 1 month ago and has some nice high end specs. Yes the laptop can play the game, smoothly? no freaking way.

Laptops are not designed for playing games at all if you ask me. A low end from around ~1500 euro will pull off the game with some really big ass slowdowns with some minor bugs. It just doesn't work people.

If you cant buy a system that meets atleast the minimum requirement i would even buy the game or try to play it.

People you can pull off a system for already 500 euro that can run the system smoothly, yes in about 5 months you will need to upgrade again but hey, its a budget pc right?

just my 50 cents.

And eidos you did it right its a beautifull game for sure.

It's not exactly true that a PC has to be expensive.
I believe continuous upgrading is the way and it doesn't necessarily have to be expensive. I have just upgraded my two year old computer spending only a rather small amount of money on it and now I'm able to play the TRU demo with highest details and effects :D
Upgrading is a great advantage of PCs over game consoles and in my opinion it dramatically reduces the relative price of PCs in comparison with consoles which eventually have to be replaced by a new model instead of upgrading just a part of it.

have you tried playing it on a PC yet?? PC video cards carry its own memory, thus freeing up more to use for processing and playing. if you are using a laptop, i don't think those aren't supported at all. unfortunately, since you do not meet even the minimum req's, there isn't anything Eidos and Crystal Dynamics can do. if you have a Desktop PC, try running it on there, instead, or grab the console version on release.

well, @ my laptop overhere.. I got also a 8400 gs, but 2 gb ram. and I can run the demo, not as good as on my pc @ home, but it works ;)

The first thing you should do is that you must remove Vista and install XP ,as you have 1GB Ram and then increase your virtual memory up to 4GB and then run TRU , I can definetly say that if you do the above thing , you can able to run TRU on medium graphics and the game will run smoothly, at least it will not lagg on your PC :) These are the things you can do without being upgrading anything

I know 1.66 Ghz is too low.. but let me know if there is some tweak i can do to make the demo work.. as the system belongs to my company.. and I cant change the processor so easily.. :mad2:

Space is no problem, i can clean up some things.. but let me know what exactly I can do to make TRU demo work.. previously I have played TRL many times successfully..

If require I can post DxDiag log as well.

l doubt the game will even install since you do not have onboard graphics, certainly it will not run, and running vista you would need more RAM most likely. There is a technical help section that would be more appropriate to asking such questions.

Well don't always trust the System Requirements..
Many times it's not really the "Requirement" but a "Recommend" because for a simple example, on the cover of TR1 stands: SR 1MB Video Graphics Card (I don't know what's the real one, but it's an sample), most of times it also works with 512kb Video Graphics Card (if those pc's still exist, lol)

I'm nervous about this. Typically my computer meets or exceeds the minimum requirements, oftentimes exceeding even the recommended requirements, and still runs poorly. I hope that this isn't the case for TRU. The demo was borderline, but I'm hoping that the full game will work well for me.

This is clearly a major problem with Nvidia graphics cards that appears widespread. I'm experiencing the same stuttering with my 7900GT (all other PC components clearly exceed minimum requirements).

I think with PC games in particular it's easy for developers to say "well, there must be a problem with this particular user's PC setup so that's why it's not working", but with the sheer volume of users with Nvidia 6 and 7 series cards having exactly the same problem, surely Eidos must act quickly and decisively to prevent a customer relations nightmare.

It should run fine, but I think you'd have to dial down a few of the graphic effect settings due to your graphics card...

Can someone reccommend a video card that will play Underworld that also has dual monitor cabability and a bult in TV Tuner. I Currently have ATI All In Wonder X600 which I guess won't run underworld. Will any of the All In Wonders run it?

I got TRU for Xmas - loaded the thing 6 times and removed 6 times.I slows my whole comp down and can see it running in task manager but nothing happens. My system passes all the tests , albeit a bit below their recomended one, For the first time I am totally peeved with a game and have returned for a refund - love this game but not at this price and I 'll carry on playing COD 5 which runs fine Sorry Eidos another customer who buys your games and doesn't download them for free gone !!

I just replayed it 1680*1050 8AA 16AF everything on max.

It lagged a bit in places (28fps) but it was playable (8800gts 640mb (overclocked).

Anything above my card and your laughing.

hi its me again i run the diagnostic page and it says that the only trouble i have it's pixel shader y el vertex shader cose i have 2.0 and i need 3.0 how ca i upgrade it?

chriss_99
8th Aug 2009, 17:00
The only way to update the pixel shader is to buy a new graphic card. Unfortunetely, you can't play the game with shader 2.0.

G'day Lila,
I don't think you will be able to run Underworld as it recommends you need one of these graphics cards.
Video Card
Recommended: nVidia GeForce 9800 GTX or ATI HD4800
You Have: Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family

The Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family is not strong enough to play Underworld. I can only just play with lots of lag with a Nvidia GeForce 6600 graphics card. So if you want to play Underworld you will have to buy a graphics card.

Have you got a desktop or laptop? Here is a link to the games that the Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family runs

good day to u too :)
thank u very much for your reply!!!!
i think u r right. i could run the demo very laggy but with all the setting at minimun and it shutdown my pc after freezing when the video started, i thought it could be that i downloaded wrongly or something. but its probably as u say. probably the game would be more heavy. or the same but im also afraid it could overload my pc and its a laptop hp.
thank u again!!
i forgot!! i know this one is much more heavy but it says that i couldnt play anniversary but i could!!! i play it a long time ago, and really well so i wasnt shure because as i said :P it says yes looking down, so thank u for explaining

I'm sorry I didnt read the other 5 pages, so you've probably had this problem a few times...
I have problems with my graphic card (Nvidia Geforce 8600M GT GPU), the original text is

"Für die Ausführung dieses Spiels wird eine DirectX9.0c-kompatible Grafikkarte benötigt. Die 3D-Beschleunigung von DirectX9.0c wird von ihrer Grafikkarte bzw ihrem Grafiktreiber nicht unterstützt."

It means that the game requires a DirectX9.0c-compatible graphic card which i dont have or my drivers dont support.

I have searched for new drivers, but according to windows 7 there arent any. And then i downloaded one of the nvidia homepage, but it doesnt work.

Any ideas? Please help me, i love that game (since TR1!) and i really thought that now i have a new notebook i could finally play it..

I think you are very upset regarding your configuration if you find the websites for playing without graphics card then you can enjoy very much..
Is anybody aware about this method because this is necessary for the most of the gamers who has no graphics card.

Just wanted to add:

That an atom processor (~1.6Ghz single core) with 2GB of RAM with Nvidia ION graphics is capable of running TR:U with game settings that is just one notch above lowest (and by that I mean that everything is turned to low except instead of 'point' you are using 'bilinear' and the resolution is one notch above 1024v768 on a 16:9 aspect ratio)

There is some lag, but it is definitely very very playable =)
