As you may know, we don’t know what kind of hardware is needed to run the game. At least not in detail. GLES 3 capable graphics card is recommended, with a fast enough CPU. But even GLES 2 intel integrated graphics seem to usually work. For the Steam release we need to provide some kind of system requirements. Us developers don’t have much hardware to test with so I thought I’d ask help from you, the community.
So how this works is that you download a save, press F3 to show the FPS counter, then sit and wait for 10-15 seconds to see what’s like the lowest FPS number (ignore the first second or so as loading a save freezes the game for a little bit) and around where it hovers. For me with the save linked below I got 329 min FPS with a bit over 330 being the value the FPS stayed around after a little bit of waiting. The FPS varies quite a bit between runs, so when I did that again I got like a low of 289 FPS but the FPS did stay around 320 mostly. I think that’s due to the random spawning happening in the game. And then post those numbers along with what GPU and CPU as well as how much RAM you have and also mention your screen resolution you played the game at. I think we’ll be able to come up with some ballpark specs for min and recommended specs for Thrive with those.
I don’t really have a good save to test with, but here’s at least one a little bit into the game: https://dev.revolutionarygamesstudio.com/api/v1/download/23909
Feel free to volunteer one of your saves for testing.
