Risen 2 Gold on steam + current performance
Hi everyone,

I purchased the Risen 2 Gold edition yesterday and I got two questions:

1) Where can I actually see that I purchased the gold edition? In my game list I only got "Risen 2 - Dark Waters" - there is nothing written indicating that I really got the gold edition (including the DLCs). How can I verify that?

2) After release, in 2012, you could read a lot about performance issues in the game. Have they been fixed/improved in the meantime? I am planning to play the game on max settings on an I3-3220, 4 GB Ram and a Geforce 570 GTX Sonic Platinum. Would this be enough? Unfortunately I just will be able to verify that in about 2 months, since I am currently working abroad.

Thanks in advance and greetings, lead

gold edtion seems to be just the name for the whole package game+dlc. you will have the very same version like everyone including all dlc's ofc. About your rig i can't tell but check the minimum requirements and compare. the gpu should work fine for this game but im not sure about your cpu so better compare for your self.

I have a 560 ti with everything maxed and I it seems to run fine. :)

I play on max settings (At 1680x1050, everything set to max value) and it runs as smooth as silk on my 5 year old self built PC. Only thing I've ever upgraded was the video card.

Intel Q9650 3.00ghz CPU
AMD 6950 GPU
8GB G.skill DDR2 RAM
Windows Vista 64x

Runs like an absolute dream, and that's a rather old rig setup too.

I hope it does for you, I pass all recommended settings but can't get it above 14FPS.

thx for the replies. I wonder however how these different performances (xsys writes it works fine, Mormacil has very low fps) can be explained. Is this somehow driver-related?

i had those fps issue with my nvidia card, after uninstalling all 3d vision driver (wich i don't need cause i don't have glass or even a 3d monitor) this issue was fixed and the game runs supersmooth.

thanks, that´s a brillant hint. So I will install the newest driver without 3d vision.

your welcome :)

I don't have the 3D driver installed either. I have a custom built gaming pc that is quite tuned, but basically I just make sure that there are no other processes taking up valuable processor time when I game (i.e. idle at 0%). I don't have anything overclocked (AMD FX 8150 and NVidia 560 ti) so there is no other voodoo happening than in the game ;)

I also use this pc for a DAW, so I use several techniques for tuning from the many quides online. However, I did notice that I get slightly better performance when I use my high end audio hardware (lower latency - profire). I think a default sample rate of 16 bit 44khz for mb audio helps when I have to use RealTek for some games.
