United Mining Exploration Commission: A group of friends playing JumpGate-- "a MMORPG that launched smoothly, breaks from fantasy character setting, emphasizes PvP, and is the first persistent world space simulator that nobody talks about." ~Scorch

I'm not kidding.

Sector 13

I'm downloading the demo right now - they said at GameDev that a full multiplayer test version will be released NEXT WEEK.

You find the demo under "quick links", on the left, at the url above.

Try it out. If it's good, I'm going to be very happy. A game that is JUST a shooter is very cool.

As much as I love fully-integrated RPG-types... just a shooter is great news.

"Official" system specs:

Pentium IV 1.8GHz or equivalent
500MB Hard drive space
256MB Memory
GeForce3 (or equivalent) video card with 64MB of memory, supporting vertex and pixel shader version 1.1
Windows 2000 or XP
DirectX 8.1

Havik tells me (I don't have the vid card for it) that it's similar to Freespace 2, in many ways - but much prettier.

No lats (but then, few do have them), very fast acceleration.

Remember, this is in VERY early beta, so there's going to be "issues".

1. Joystick config is currently broken.
2. Video settings cannot be changed at this time
3. There are known video problems on some GF4 cards.

Anyway, soon as I get a new vid card, I'll be testing it some.
