GSB & Windows 7 64 bit


#1

Hi

I’ve just come across this game on YouTube and as a SciFi games fan it looks very intriguing. I’ve spent quite a while looking on reviews and the forum but can’t find a definitive answer to my main question:

Does GSB run on Windows 7 64bit?

My setup is:

W7 Home Premium 64bit + SP1
Intel Core i5 750 CPU - 2.67 GHz
8GB RAM
ATI Radion HD 5750 Graphics card
ATI HD Audio Device with 7.1 surround sound

ps smilies are ON in my account, but OFF when I create a post - any ideas?

While I can only vouch for GSB on the low end systems.
As a suggestion, one way to find out if GSB will run on your system is to try it out:

Just a thought

Yes.

Thanks CarloTheCurious

If possible, could you provide a bit more info on your setup ?
(it could prove useful for other people that might be experiencing trouble on a Win 7 64Bit machine)

GSB runs quite fine on my setup
Operating System
MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
CPU
Intel Core i7 2600K @ 3.40GHz 50 °C
Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
RAM
8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24)
Motherboard
MSI H61M-P23 (MS-7680) (SOCKET 0) 29 °C
Graphics
Generic Non-PnP Monitor (1920x1080@60Hz)
1024MB GeForce GTX 560 (ASUStek Computer Inc) 47 °C

I really don’t have a clue what it all means except that I don’t have to worry about new games for the next 4 months.
And GSB runs even with oversized battles.
1500 pilots and 1 million credits.

Hi

Thanks for the quick response.

I try to keep my PC “clean” and so don’t test whether things will run by installing them anymore. Your replies are encouraging enough to give the demo a try though.

I like to use smilies and have had a couple of attempts to turn them on in the Control Panel - they are shown as on in the CP but shown as off when I post - help would be appreaciated!

CPU and GPU are extremely old but this game should run fine. It runs on my systems (I have two), the more recent one being:

CPU: Intel i5 3570k 3.4ghz
Board: ASRock Z77 Extreme6
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 32.0gb (4x8gb) 1600mhz
GPU: MSI Twin Frozr HD Radeon 7950
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64

The other one is something like an AMD Phenom x4 3.00ghz, radeon 6770, 4gb of ram (3.25 usable), 32bit windows 7 ultimate and it runs fine on that as well.

Win 7 64 bit is all I have run it on two different computers no major issues. Occasional ( 1 per few hours) bug usually the wireless hiccuping.

Thanks for all the replies

I play Evochron Mercenary (created by StarWraith), but GSB is so very different that it is very tempting (time-wise - the cost is very reasonable!)

Next step get sorted and buy it

ps - how can I turn smilies option ON? :wink: EDIT I’ve got it switched on in my options!
