Just found out its a known bug in my case caused by relocating a fleet. So i hope its fixed soon (till then its SOTS 1 for me).

I find the game worth the price. I have yet to finish a game and spent over 800 hour playing it. I have had fun just exploring the various tech trees, having gorgeous battles and trying various races and strategies. I have come close to winning lots of times as the AI still need a lot of work. However it has not been worth my time to completely crush the AI players. One of these days I will try out the various win conditions and try to win. Until the AI is fixed I will just enjoy the journey rather than wait for the jouney's end. :-)

+1 This is my experience as well (though I'm no where near 800 hours).

Sorry to all those who have had a bad experience. The game just doesn't run equally on al machines. My alienware laptop really strugles with it while my desktop does fine.

To be fair laptops have always been a rather difficult area for gaming - even top end laptops can sometimes have problems running games due to the nature of them using different components to standard desktop computers.

My Alienware runs better than my desktop. The only problem I have with the game currently is my fleets sometimes start inside the sun. Then the fight ends. I have to reload to fix it. 3D works great and turn times at 160 are about 3-4 seconds.


My Alienware M17xR4 Rig (9.8 lbs)
i7-3610QM 2.3GHz quad HD4000
NVidia GTX 680M 2GB
17.5” 120Hz 1080p 3D LED display
Two SATA 6 256GB SSD in RAID 0 (1GB/s continuous throughput)
16GB RAM
Killer Wireless-N 1103 NIC
Blueray, crazy lighting, great internal speakers

I would be playing this game if the turn times didn't take so long. My system runs it like any other game, but without hyper-threading going past 250 turns just ends up making the game very boring.

-500W PSU
-GA H77M-D3H
-i5-3470 3.2GHz
-ASUS Radeon 7750 1GB
-1x 4GB Kingston 1333MHz Value RAM
-2x 2GB Kingston 1333MHz Value RAM
-1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue HD
-Win 7 64bit Home Edition

My previous set-up used an i3-540 with a H55M-E33 motherboard and ATI Radeon 5750; turn times with the hyper-threaded cpu allowed me to get past turn 600 without getting bored but the combat was incredibly laggy and slow.

My laptop isn't anything amazing, but it plays SotSII just fine:
Dell Insperon 17.3"
i7-3630QM 2.4GHz quad HD4000
NVidia GT 650M 2Gig
1 TB HD
8Gig Memory (Corsair 1600MHz, 9CAS)
Solid Internal speakers (including Sub-Woofer)
Wireless Internet
Keyboard Backlit etc, etc, etc.

No major problems, play into the 600 turns before turn times really exceed 10-20 seconds and even then it's not horribly long either.

@ThingsGoBoom You do realize that hyperthreding is "virtual" 4-core while i5 is real 4-core? What you imply is just silly.

So odd. The computer I use is around 5 years old at this point and only a dual core, and running the game at max settings (minus focal blur which looks horrible), I run it smoothly. I only get slowdowns when combats feature an absurd number of drones/BR or more missiles than the USA and Russia combined. Note, that's just slow downs. Not stuttering or stopping or crashing. I recommend you take a serious look at your machine - especially at what you're running in the background, and be sure to keep your drivers/etc up to date.

I have the same mars.exe crashing glitch that happens after a survey fleet completes a mission or a post-battle menu opens.

Fixed in the next patch I believe! http://www.kerberos-productions.com/forums/
