I completely agree, UE4 is one of the biggest and most advanced engines on the market but the recommended requirements are pretty damn reasonable.Carbon wrote:Frankly I never understand the complaints against brand new tech needing higher system requirements. This is cutting edge; UE4 is the absolute latest and I think the requisites are reasonable. There is no hardware in those recommended specs that is newer than 5 years old. Sandy Bridge (overclocked, still a fine CPU), DX11 graphics ( most every card since 2010/11), RAM is very cheap these days (8GB for around $60), Win7x64...all pretty old stuff really.
Painful specs would be an i7, Win 8.1, 16GB DDR4 RAM (yes, I know...just saying) and 3GB VRAM. Now that would be steep.
That is like saying that making diesel free is useless because your car needs gasoline. Epic is allowing you to use one of the most advanced game engines for free how is that useless?Chamberly wrote:UE4 been free imo. But if it's not gonna do anything for unreal/ut99, then it's kinda useless lol.
Epic is also working on UT4 with the community, UE4 used to have a $19 a month subscription and you needed that to work on UT4 but now UE4 is free that would mean everyone can work on UT4 for free. Why does this matter? Because how we can make stuff like monterhunt and jailbreak for UT4 and there is even a chance that those gametypes are going to be included as a standard gametype in the 1.0 release!
