the recommended specifications are higher than they need to be. I tried this on my Ivy Bridge i5 laptop, which has HD4000 graphics. This runs 20fps at 1024x576. If you have i5 or i7 Haswell, or Skylake CPUs: you will be fine for 72op (1280x720). As the graphics in those chips are like 2 -3 times more powerful. Depending on the game.

Any of AMD's A8 or A10 APUs will be plenty.

Likewise, lower model gpus like nvidia 650, R7 240, radeon 7750, will also be fine. or older high end, such as GTX460

well, I was wrong! I just tried my Skylake i3 with Intel HD530 graphics, and it does 25fps at 1024x576 and 20fps, at 720p.

However, I noticed that turning down shadows, light distance, and dynamics-----has zero affect on the framerate. I wonder if they are actually still being rendered, even though you cannot see them? Usually, turning down things like shadows and dynamic lighting, has huge benefit, for these intel graphics.

for example, with shadows and special lighting turned off, I can run Dark Souls 2: Scholar of The First Sin Edition, at 40fps/720p, on my Ivy Bridge HD4000 laptop.

Now, of course, GOAT is a much newer game, with many newer graphical features. The point I'm making is that turning off shadows/lighting in Dark Souls 2, causes the game to go from a picture slideshow, to perfectly smooth. GOAT does not seem to have any change, when you turn off similar graphical features.

It also looks like the game is running some sort of Anti-Aliasing. Maybe SMAA?

If we had an option to turn that off, that would help gain a few frames, for low end hardware.

I think the idea of making the game early access is also to give Seith more info about different configs he could otherwise never test.
Therfore, I think optimization will also be a waypoint until the final release.

Just dropping my specs:

i5 3570
8gb ram
evga gtx 1050 ssc 2gb
120gb ssd
Win 7
60 fps cap

With all checkboxes on, average 35-40 fps 1080p with severe occasional stuttering. In fact, character often does a 180 degree turn (i.e I lose control for 1/3 second and when the game unfreezes, character usually did a 180).

With all checkboxes off except for AA, 45-50fps average 1080p with less stuttering.

Without antivirus software, nothing but steam running in the background, I'm gpu-restricted by around 30-35%. I would probably need a gtx 1060 to be comfy at ~60 fps.

Thanks for your specs Tarusam, that's really helpful. We'll hopefully be addressing some of these issues in due course.

Hey I am also getting ready to run a CoC game. Full blown campaign though my tips are are the same for running anything, know the rules, have fun, and keep it interesting. Just because you love the story, the players may find something different the drives them, embrace it, and evenly the story will find them.
